Government shutdown hits SLO County A s the shutdown of the federal government reached 32 days with no end in sight, local government agencies and nonprofits are bracing for the long-term impacts. “It’s unprecedented on many levels,” Kevin Bumen, SLO County’s director of airports, said. Like the nation’s other airports, the shutdown affects both Transportation and Security Administration (TSA) employees and air traffic controllers at the SLO County Regional Airport. Bumen said that operations at the airport have remained unaffected thus far. Its air traffic controllers are employed under a federal contract that that is funded through February, and despite reports of record absences of TSA screeners at airports across the country, Bumen said the absence rate for TSA employees at the SLO County Airport was “at or below” its historic average. Still, Bumen noted that the further impacts were uncertain as the shutdown continues. “There’s just a lot of questions out there,” he said. Just 26 miles north of the airport, members of the U.S. Coast Guard in Morro Bay, along with 42,000 of their peers across the country, have gone without pay since December. Central Coast Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) visited Morro Bay’s Coast Guard station on Jan. 19 to speak with members. “It is shameful that the men and women serving their country to keep us safe are being forced to work without getting a paycheck,” Carbajal, who is forgoing his own pay in solidarity with federal workers, said in a written statement. Cambria resident Jim Mang created a GoFundMe campaign to collect money to help local Coast Guard members. As of Jan. 23, the

campaign had raised $3,565 of its $100,000 goal. Some SLO County nonprofits are also feeling the squeeze during the shutdown. Peoples’ SelfHelp Housing, a nonprofit that helps provide housing for more than 5,000 low-income families on the Central Coast, is already dipping into its own funds to make up for a loss in government housing subsidies that dried up due to the shutdown. Peoples’ Self-Help President John Fowler said the organization has been spending an estimated $100,000 a week, nearly $500,000 in total so far, to make up for the loss of federal funds because of the shutdown and to keep residents in their homes.

“Clearly that’s not money that these families have,” Fowler said. “We are the safety net.” Fowler said the organization began to prepare for the shutdown before it occurred and can operate fairly comfortably through February, but beyond that, it will have to begin making some “hard calls.” Those tough calls will not include kicking people out of their homes, Fowler said. “We are not going to evict families because of the government shutdown,” he said. “We are going to do everything we can to protect these vulnerable families on the Central Coast.” Δ —Chris McGuinness

Lucia Mar could increase the price of school lunches

the proposal. Chad Robertson, president of the district board of education, said his main concern is the financial stability of the program. “I think we need to make sure the department stays whole, and the last thing we would want to do is increase, even though it’s so nominal, but increase the cost to students if we can avoid it at all,” Robertson said. According to district staff, there is a possibility that the Food Services department’s budget could encroach upon the district’s general fund next year. School meals have changed dramatically over the last two years as the department has shifted its focus to serving locally sourced and freshly prepared foods. It’s partnered with local farms and producers, including Mallard Lake Ranch, Green Gold Organic Farms, and Edna’s Bakery. The cost of food has increased by 30 percent since the 2009-10 fiscal year, and there has been a 10 percent salary increase since the 2012-13 fiscal year. “It takes healthy bellies for healthy minds to produce healthy results, and it’s a fact, healthy food is expensive,” Robertson said.

Lucia Mar Unified School District’s Food Services department is proposing to raise the price of school meals almost a decade after its last increase. During a report presented at the Jan. 22 district board meeting, Director of Food Services Laurel Goins said the switch to locally sourced foods, an increase in labor costs, and the need to repair and replace equipment is increasing the department’s costs. “We’ve moved away from pressed and shaped meats, so chicken nuggets are out and chicken strips are in. Identifiable things is our goal,” Goins said. The proposal includes increasing the cost of breakfast by 50 cents, raising the price from $1.50 to $2.00. Lunch would increase by 25 cents— elementary school lunch will go from $2.50 to $2.75, middle school will increase from $2.75 to $3, and high school would increase from $3 to $3.25. Students who participate in the free and reduced lunch programs will not be affected by

Go-karts, mini golf coming to El Chorro Park this summer

While golfers lament the recent loss of nine holes at Dairy Creek Golf Course, families can look forward to new activities, like go-karting and miniature golf, at El Chorro Regional Park. SLO County officials are in the process of obtaining permits and bids for a new electric go-kart racing track and 18-hole miniature golf course at the park off of Highway 1. SLO County Parks and Recreation Director Nick Franco told New Times that he expects the facilities to open this summer. “Miniature golf will be a designed course of 18 holes with cows, windmills— the Dairy Creek theme,” Franco said. Both projects are key pieces to the county’s reinvention of El Chorro Park, which was spurred by a water crisis at the Dairy Creek Golf Course. Dairy Creek, which draws water from the neighboring California Men’s Colony, saw a dramatic reduction in its allocation due to a declining prison population. That shortage forced the county to close nine holes of the course in May 2018. Years of decline in the course’s condition led to a reduction in play as well as major financial issues for the county. The county golf fund currently draws about $485,000 annually from the general fund to stay afloat. “We were faced with a financial issue,” Franco said. “Our challenge was what services are not provided in this area, that are still parks and recreation, that can generate revenue? Two of the low-hanging fruit were go-karts and miniature golf.” The go-kart track and miniature golf course will be located in an area just south of the golf clubhouse. Other new activities planned for the park include a Toptracer Range (a simulated driving range), batting cages, a mountain bike course, a disc golf course, and cabin camping sites. Franco said the hope is that the park will be more inclusive to the community and financially sustainable. He noted that

Dairy Creek playership has recovered since they downsized the course. “Since we’ve gone to nine holes and have been able to keep it green, our rounds have reached the same levels we had a few years before,” he said. “The ultimate goal is to need no assistance [from the general fund].” —Peter Johnson

Morro Bay verifies Proposition 218 protest votes The city of Morro Bay says that uncounted Proposition 218 protest votes would still not have been enough to change the outcome of the September 2018 vote to increase water and sewer rates. On Jan. 17, the city released the results of the verification and tabulation of all written protests related to the water reclamation facility water and sewer rate hike on its website. According to

the staff report, of the approximately 1,000 protests that were not counted by the city in 2018, 272 were new votes, 665 were duplicates, 70 were invalid, and 62 required further verification. The city initially declined to count the approximately 1,000 protest votes because they were either undated or marked with a date that was prior to the public notice of the proposed rate increase—disqualifying them. Residents who opposed the city’s water reclamation project threatened the city’s refusal with legal action in October 2018. Previously, the city counted 1,560 protest votes. The 272 newly validated, but still uncounted, protest votes were not enough to bring the total up to the 2,794 votes that would have been needed to prohibit the council from approving the rate hike. City Mayor John Headding said the tallying process took place from Dec. 17 through 20, 2018, including only city staff. Two community members observed

the count, one who was for and one who was against the water facility. Headding opened the discussion to tally the uncounted protest votes, and the council moved to do so, even though the result would not change the council’s decision. Although he was at first opposed to tallying up the lost protest votes, Headding said, he understood the community’s need to know the numbers. “I do feel that in talking to a broader contingency that I may have been somewhat jaded in thinking of the need of counting something that essentially doesn’t count, but that it was important for community members who had expressed their voice in the form of a written protest,” he said. —Karen Garcia

For every girl O n Saturday morning Jan. 12, the welcome center at the El Morro Church of the Nazarene is buzzing with the sound of sewing machines. The center is filled with big circular tables where women cut fabric, measure it, sew it, or sort it. At about six to seven stations total, each woman plays a vital role in making reusable hygiene kits. Jan Northington orchestrates it all. She’s the head of the Los Osos California team, a chapter of the international Days for Girls organization. The nonprofit has teams all over the world that gather to create washable pads for girls in impoverished countries who do not have access to feminine hygiene products. Instead of supplying girls with feminine products that will eventually run out, the organization thought of the reusable substitute. The teams assemble these kits and either mails them to the Days for Girls headquarters in Washington, D.C., which will send them to young females in need, or team members can go on their own trips to deliver the product. In the welcome center, Northington said, about 20 to 25 women meet every two to three months for six hours to make as many kits as they can. Some of the women will take whatever doesn’t get finished home to work on. The kit consists of a guard that goes on the crotch of the underwear with an insert for a flannel liner made out of 100 percent cotton. Each kit has one guard, eight liners, two pairs of underwear, a

washcloth, and bar or two of soap. There’s also an instruction sheet on how to use the guard and liners as well as a calendar for tracking the menstruation cycle packaged inside a drawstring backpack. Aside from giving the reusable pads, the girls are also given menstrual health education. “The whole idea is that the girls receive education as to how their bodies work and why they’re bleeding because in most of these countries, they don’t know,” Northington said. Northington has taught girls herself and said that the international organization gives them informational documents, diagrams, and a large presentation board so they can show the girls how their bodies work, the female reproductive system and the male’s. She also encourages the girls to understand their self-worth. “I have talked about, ‘You have the right to say no,’ the right to stand up for who you are. In so many of these places they don’t feel like they’re worthy, but I believe this is helping them feel more valuable,” Northington said. Days for Girls International has reached more than 1 million women and girls in more than 125 countries. Northington found out about the international organization’s efforts through a trip with friends to Uganda. “I’m an old registered nurse, retired, but I’ve always wanted to go to Africa and help,” she said. During the trip, one person brought along Days for Girls kits to distribute to

a veteran correctional deputy to help ensure its jail is in compliance with the myriad policies and laws that govern the facility. Starting next month, Correctional Deputy Traci Kessler will begin her duties in the newly created position of Sheriff’s Compliance Officer. Kessler previously worked as a correctional deputy in the department for the last 14 years, and is also a third year law student focusing on correctional litigation. As compliance officer, Kessler said her goal is to make sure department policies meet or exceed standards mandated by federal and state laws. The position comes as Sheriff Ian Parkinson has instituted a number of reforms at the jail in response to public concern over the health and safety of inmates. “With all the changes [Parkinson] is implementing in the department, he understood that there was a need for this position,” Kessler told New Times. Some of the laws that Kessler will be tasked with ensuring compliance with at the jail include the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Prison Rape Elimination Act, and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, which governs the right of inmates to practice their religion while incarcerated. Kessler will also oversee the jail’s compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, which governs the privacy of medical records and medical information. Kessler indicated that HIPAA compliance was particularly important because of

Palomar project moves forward after ruling on trespassing case

A 33-unit housing development in San Luis Obispo stymied by litigation recommenced construction after a SLO County Superior Court judge denied a neighbor’s request to halt the project for trespassing. Owners of a vacant parcel next to the project site at 71 Palomar Ave. filed the lawsuit in September, claiming the developer’s construction activities trespassed onto their small lot at 75 Palomar and ultimately would render the lot undevelopable. “With the advent of tiny houses, there’s always the expectation that the parcel would at least be available,” Roy Ogden, the neighbor’s attorney, told New Times

girls in need. After that first experience, she knew it was something she wanted to bring to the Central Coast. She started it with a friend in 2013. The following year, the local team made 426 kits. Last year, the team made 705 kits to distribute. She said her team doesn’t normally send kits to the headquarters because some of the women like to distribute the kits themselves. All of the kits were made possible with community donations of 100 percent cotton material, with the exception of a few purchased items. “It’s very rewarding because I see such light bulbs go off around the world with both women and kids who never understood how their bodies work,” she said.

when the suit was filed. The court initially issued a temporary stay on construction, but on Nov. 14, Judge Tana Coates denied a request for preliminary injunction that would’ve extended the freeze. Coates pointed to two easements from 1967 and 1971 on the parcel that allowed for much of the construction activities. “The easements are not ambiguous,” Coates wrote in the order. “The evidence ... establishes that the defendant proceeded with the development per the terms of the easements.” Coates was also unconvinced of the neighbor’s argument that their lot could be the future site of an 800-square-foot house. “Plaintiff has not TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT A SLO County judge submitted any evidence ruled that a 33-unit project at 71 Palomar in San Luis Obispo could continue construction, after the owners of an adjoining that it intends to build property (the vacant grassy area) sued for trespassing. on 75 Palomar,” the order reads. “Whereas The lawsuit marks the second legal defendant has submitted hurdle for 71 Palomar since the project evidence of the cost and expenses it was approved by the City Council. will incur if the development does not Neighborhood residents also lost a proceed.” case in 2017 challenging the project’s Neither party in the case returned environmental review. ∆ requests for comment from New Times —Peter Johnson before press time.

SILLY RABBIT, VAPES ARE FOR KIDS While some say vaping is simply a safer alternative to smoking burnt tobacco, tobacco use prevention specialists argue that the tobacco industry is specifically marketing to teens. E-juice companies like “Juicy AF” package their products in brightly colored boxes reminiscent of juice boxes, and sell flavors that would typically be most appealing to children, including bubble gum, melon candy, and Hawaii berry.

Tobacco prevention specialists are worried that electronic cigarettes are addicting a new generation to nicotine

T

he campaign against tobacco over the last several decades has worked. Messaging built into the public school system’s health classes successfully got the message across: Cigarettes are gross. Cigarettes cause cancer. These are phrases that San Luis Obispo High School Principal Leslie O’Connor said he hears from his students. So when O’Connor sits down with a student who’s been caught with an electronic cigarette, a vape pen, or a pod mod, he always questions them about traditional tobacco use. “I ask them if they would smoke a cigarette, and they say, ‘No that’s disgusting,’ while I’m sitting there holding their vape pen,” O’Connor said. “They think it’s clean. … The messaging from these companies is so proactive and so subtle.” The act of vaping is also subtle. Vapes and e-cigarettes work on essentially the same premise as old-fashioned rolled cigarettes—delivering nicotine quickly to the body through inhalation—but without the tobacco and smelly smoke that comes with it. Pods hold a liquid called e-juice that gets heated into vapor that users can then inhale. “The products are almost impossible to detect because they look like USBs, they look like pens. They just look like something you’d have lying around in your backpack,” O’Connor said. The school has really seen an increase in use over the last 18 months, O’Connor said. And that use isn’t limited to high school students. It’s also occurring on other campuses, San Luis Coastal Unified School District Superintendent Eric Prater said, and in middle school. Prater said if you ask a class full of ninth graders if they vape or know of anyone who does, almost every hand in the classroom shoots up. According to the 2018 California Healthy Kids Survey, 41 percent of 11th graders in the district had ever tried e-cigarettes, 28 percent used them currently, 29 percent had used them four

or more times, and 9 percent used them daily. Prater thinks the actual numbers are higher than that. He said students he’s spoken with have said they believe the percentage of students who have tried e-cigarettes or use them somewhat regularly is much higher as well. “Four or more times could easily translate into, ‘I’m doing this right now,’” Prater said, adding that at Morro Bay High School at least 500 students out of the 2,300 to 2,400 students at the school are vaping. “And that’s what we know of,” Prater said. “That’s a lot of kids.” The issue isn’t isolated to San Luis Coastal, although the numbers do vary in school districts across the county. Coast Unified School District has the lowest number of vapers in the county, according to the 2018 California Healthy

Kids Survey data, with 13 percent of 11th graders reporting that they have vaped four or more times. Shandon Unified School District has the highest, with 38 percent of 11th graders and 6 percent of seventh graders reporting that they’ve vaped four or more times. Although modern vapes and e-cigarettes have existed for more than a decade, improved technology, a wider range of flavors (about 7,000plus flavors, according to Prater), and increasingly sleek devices have made vaping popular among teens in recent years. It’s become so common that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a September 2018 press release that the trend had reached “an epidemic proportion,” and announced a major enforcement operation aimed at reducing sales of e-cigarettes to minors. While some say vapes simply PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM provide a safer alternative to the deadly carcinogens and tar that come with burning tobacco, tobacco use prevention specialists worry that the devices are getting a new generation addicted to nicotine, unraveling decades of prevention work on the federal, state, and local levels. “It worries me, and quite frankly I see corporate manipulation,” Prater said. “It’s very clever and it’s been marketed to take advantage of our youth. I’m not only concerned. I’m upset about it.”

‘It’s not cuul to JUUL in schuul’

SIGN OF THE TIMES San Luis Obispo High School recently started putting signs like these in the bathrooms as part of an effort to deter students from using electronic cigarettes.

10 • New Times • January 24 - January 31, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

Until only recently, Lompoc resident Mustafa Fhaies smoked two packs of cigarettes nearly every day. Eventually he grew tired of the most common side effects of smoking—his hair and clothes constantly reeked of tobacco smoke, he struggled to sleep, and he suffered lengthy and intense

Youth vaping at a glance

• E-cigarette use rose significantly among U.S. middle and high school students between 2011 and 2017. While only 1.5 percent of high school and 0.6 percent of middle school students reported using e-cigarettes in the 2011 National Youth Tobacco Survey, the 2017 survey found that 11.7 percent of high school and 3.3 percent of middle school students had used e-cigs within the last 30 days before taking the survey. • While more than 98 percent of all e-cigarette products contain nicotine, roughly 60 percent of U.S. teens surveyed in a 2015 study incorrectly reported that e-cigarettes were mostly composed of flavoring. • Unlike traditional cigarettes and other tobacco products, e-cigarettes can be advertised on television and radio. • One brand of e-cigarette, JUUL, has become increasingly popular since its launch in 2015. JUUL’s unit sales increased by more than 600 percent in 2017, and its sales now represent more than 70 percent of the e-cig market share.

coughing fits almost every morning. He switched to vaping JUULs, a still relatively new but extremely popular brand of e-cigarette, and Fhaies said the severity of his symptoms soon diminished. They haven’t returned. “I feel way better,” he said. “Now I can’t even stand the smell of cigarettes.” So Fhaies said he can see why vapes in general, and especially JUULs, are such hot ticket items at each of his four tobacco and vape shops in Lompoc, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Cruz County. Fhaies said that while his tobacco sales have dropped off in recent years, vape and e-cigarette sales are only increasing. His vape-related sales nearly doubled in 2018, and he said JUUL is one of his best sellers. While the advent of vape culture has been great for his bottom line, Fhaies said he has to be careful.

“We get a lot of minors trying to buy,” he said. “A lot. Especially in San Luis and Santa Maria.” Other sellers aren’t as careful as Fhaies. Inger Appanaitis, SLO County’s Tobacco Control Program manager, said that 12 percent of the licensed tobacco retailers in the incorporated areas of the county violated rules regulating age requirements for the sale of tobacco in 2018. E-cigarette use rose significantly among U.S. middle and high school students between 2011 and 2017, according to data collected by the Truth Initiative. While only 1.5 percent of high school and 0.6 percent of middle school students reported using e-cigarettes in a 2011 National Youth Tobacco Survey, 11.7 percent of high school and 3.3 percent of middle school students reported using e-cigarettes in 2017. The 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey shows an even more dramatic situation. The number of U.S. high school students who reported being current e-cigarette users increased by 78 percent between 2017 and 2018. Numbers among middle school students rose by 48 percent. “All the progress we’ve made in decreasing tobacco use over the last 20 or 30 years with traditional tobacco products has basically been negated with e-cigarettes,” Appanaitis said. “Students don’t really understand, 1, what nicotine is, and, 2, how addictive it is.” Health officials are just now starting to understand the depth of the situation and looking at the health effects of electronic

tobacco products. Appanaitis said that schools, parents, local governments, and law enforcement are struggling to catch up with how fast vaping devices have proliferated into youth culture. The health department is doing things such as holding health education workshops with adults and working with some schools on a caseby-case basis to educate teachers and students. Schools are trying to figure out the best way to supplement the curriculum they already use for traditional tobacco products to include the new technology. “School curriculums have been developed over decades to talk about the traditional dangers of tobacco smoke,” she said. “It’s our jobs to know about these devices, and we’re still trying to catch up with how quickly these devices have come on.”

Catching up

It’s an issue parents, teachers, and law enforcement agencies across the nation are working to address, and a pattern many feel is no accident. With wide ranging fruity flavors sold in brightly colored boxes, youth-centered ads on social media, and easy-to-hide techy designs, e-cigarette manufacturers have been widely accused of purposely targeting teens. After the FDA announced its plans to tighten restrictions on e-cigarette manufacturers in September, the agency gave companies like JUUL, Blu, and Logic 60 days to develop plans to keep their products away

from teens. On Nov. 13, JUUL announced it would stop selling most of its flavored e-juice pods in stores and discontinue its social media promotions. Two days later, the FDA announced plans to officially ban most e-cigarette flavors, flavored cigars, and menthol cigarettes. “JUUL Labs shares a common goal with the Surgeon General and other federal health regulators—preventing youth from initiating on nicotine,” a company spokesperson said in an emailed statement to New Times. “We are committed to preventing youth access of JUUL products. … As we said before, our intent was never to have youth use JUUL products. We have taken dramatic action to contribute to solve this problem.” On Nov. 15, FDA Commissioner Scott PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

CONFISCATED Vape pens, pod mods, and other forms of electronic cigarettes are being taken from students on a regular basis at schools like SLO High, where nicotine use among teens is on the rise thanks to the proliferation of the devices.

EYE EXAMS • CONTACT LENSES • UNIQUE EYEWEAR

Gottlieb announced new rules aimed at curbing teen use of e-cigarettes, including age restrictions on stores that can sell flavored e-cigarette products as well as the way those products are advertised. In December, Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-SLO) introduced a bill into the state Legislature that would limit the way that e-cigarette manufacturers are allowed to advertise their products. Although it’s similar to the FDA’s proposed regulations, Cunningham said there is no guarantee that those rules will become law anytime soon or that they will survive legal challenges. The bill would ban e-cigarette and e-juice marketing toward children and make it illegal for manufacturers to package products in a way that is appealing to youth, and it’s modeled after similar regulations the tobacco and cannabis industries already adhere to. Features like cartoons, bright colors, and candy-themed flavors would no longer be allowed in e-cig ads or on packages. “There is a need for California to lead the way and set our own standards through democratically elected legislation rather than bureaucratic mandate,” Cunningham said in an emailed response to questions. “Locally, teachers, parents, and even my own middle-school aged kids have told me that more and more kids are using these products. For the long-term health of our children, it’s absolutely critical that California lead the way and prohibit these e-cigarette companies from overtly marketing their products to kids.” Δ Reach editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

RELAXATION In addition to her all-natural and CBD products, Blanco uses a jade roller and Gua Sha tools to further enhance the oils and creams applied to the face.

BY KAREN GARCIA

Eliminate the chemicals in everyday makeup and skin care with natural and CBD products

J

essica Blanco, the owner of Central Coast Beauties, vividly remembers her abuelita (grandmother) creating homemade ointments and salves for the family with organic ingredients. “If you got a cut or a burn she would go get a fresh aloe leaf from the backyard for you,” Blanco said of the woman who raised her in the Bay Area. She also remembers a rub that her abuelita would use to relieve her body of aches when she had a fever—it was a mixture of alcohol infused cannabis. “I realize now that cannabis was going to end up in my future regardless, because she used to rub our bodies where we felt discomfort with this secret remedy, and it helped,” she said. Blanco’s abuelita has since passed away, but constantly using herbs and home remedies during her upbringing gave Blanco an appreciation for an organic and holistic approach to caring for the body. But this ideology wouldn’t really become Blanco’s career focus until she took a deeper look into the products she used on her face after she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.

her to start over with makeup and skin products. “You really have to take the time and do your own research to find clean and natural products, because it could say organic on the label but you have to read the ingredients,” she said. As Blanco discovered natural products that were less harmful to her skin, she also started experiencing body aches and pain. She was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that was making it difficult for her to work. Abuelita’s remedy came to mind and Blanco started looking into CBD products to manage the pain. In her research, she discovered Cannabliss, an organic cannabis infused skincare line. It has products such as a cleanser, moisturizer, and body oil. The benefits of having cannabis in skincare products, she learned, is that it can work as an anti-inflammatory component. The plus, for Blanco, was the fact that most products from the company contained fewer than 10 ingredients. “My biggest rule is it should have less than 10 ingredients, at least, and if I can’t pronounce it, I don’t want it,” she said.

Fine print

Fresh out of beauty school, Blanco started her career as a makeup artist at MAC cosmetics. She learned a lot through that experience, but she said she started noticing that some clients would come in with inflammation, acne, or irritation on their face because of the products they were using. Other than the laundry list of ingredients in one product, what stood out to her the most were the chemicals found in a typical moisturizer, blush, or concealer. Blanco said a typical beauty product could contain sodium lauryl sulfate, polyethylene, or parabens. These chemicals can be found in makeup, face wash, scrubs, and exfoliates. She also said that federal law does not require companies to list the chemicals used in their fragrance mixture on product labels. It got her thinking about what she was applying to her face, and it was enough for

She tried the Cannabliss products as part of her skin care routine and facials. Blanco instantly knew that this was a product she could get behind for herself and others. With all of these tools in her pocket, the next step for Blanco was to share her information about CBD and local organic makeup and skin care products with other women. She joined the Mission Community Services Corporation Women’s Business Center to learn about creating her own business—a studio where she could not only showcase a few of her preferred products but offer makeup and organic facial services.

Home away from home

WHOLE BODY Jessica Blanco focuses on natural products, her client’s diet, and their everyday routine to fully care for their skin.

It’s hard to miss Blanco’s studio, Central Coast Beauties, on Grand Avenue in Grover Beach. The studio is part of a plaza with a few other businesses, but the gold palm tree leaves on the window give the studio away. Upon entering, Blanco is ready to greet you with a hug, something that’s pretty instinctual for her. She’s prepared to not only speak passionately with clients about their skin, but connect and learn more about them. It’s not just about what goes on the skin, Blanco said, it’s also about diet, illnesses people have, and stress, among other things. “I just want people to walk in and instantly feel warm and welcomed,” she said. “I’m hoping it feels cozy and like a getaway.”

Pure relaxation

Visit Jessica Blanco in Grover Beach for an all-natural holistic facial and/or makeup. She’s offering the most refreshing vibes around at Central Coast Beauties. Check out centralcoastbeauties.com for more information.

With more than 10 years of experience in the beauty industry, Blanco opened her studio in March of last year. Her services include organic facials (with or without CBD products), body treatments, event makeup, and makeup consultations. Each client starts with a questionnaire so Blanco can understand where the skin on your face might need a little more attention. On her massage table—the lights are dim and your choice of music floats in the background—she begins with a gentle steam. Each facial is different, as it’s customized to the client and their needs. Blanco makes sure to tell you the product she’s going to apply and why it’s beneficial to your specific skin. Between the sweet aromas, the electric fireplace, and soothing products, Blanco has created a space for more than just a facial. It’s a place for her to share her love of clean beauty products and services with others—although she’s not opposed to meeting with clients in their homes. It’s also a place for her to support other local businesses and female business owners. Δ Staff Writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

On the road

PHOTO COURTESY OF BEN WALTHERS

BY PETER JOHNSON

After beating cancer, Ben Walther walked from California to Delaware and biked home

I

n these tumultuous times, what if you could traverse the entire United States? Not in a RV. Not in a converted van. On foot. One after the other. Ben Walther doesn’t have to imagine it. He actually did it. Between May and November 2017, the Arroyo Grande native walked 3,600 miles from San Francisco to Lewes, Delaware, just a few years after he overcame lymphoma. Then a few months later, he biked all the way home. Among his goals was to bring awareness to the issue of universal health care. He documented his journey on a blog at facebook.com/myownmomentum. New Times sat down with Walther to ask him why and how he made the trek and what he learned along the way. What follows was edited for length and flow.

New Times: You found out you had cancer in 2013. What was that like and how did it lead you to decide to walk across the country? Ben Walther: I was 27 and I was having some trouble breathing. I eventually went to hospital and they were like, “We’re 90 percent sure you have lymphoma.” It’s such a kick in the gut realizing your life has turned over in that split second. It blows your world into pieces and you kind of have to put it back together. I took some time off and did the treatment, about eight months of chemo and three months of radiation. What’s funny was getting through the cancer and the treatment was actually pretty easy. What was way more challenging was after I got through with it. Cancer really condenses life to how am I going to get through this week, or this day? It really narrowed my horizons. I had about two years after where I was just working a crummy job and making a lot of self-destructive decisions. I was out hiking one day and was like, “I’m miserable. I’m really out of shape. I’ve been given this gift of having my life continue and I’m really squandering it.” There was this ephemeral thought of, “I should walk across the country.” That was on April 1, 2017, and on May 1 I left from Lands End in San Francisco. NT: Did you ever think about turning around? BW: Probably the wildest part was either the Great Basin Desert of Nevada and Utah or the Great Plains. The Sierras and the Rockies were so majestic that it was easy to stay engaged. Out in the desert or the plains ... just put a picture of cornfields in front of you and stare at that for a month straight. That’s way tougher. But once I started, I never thought I’d turn around. And that’s out of character for me. It was pretty life-changing to have that experience. BW: What was your sleeping situation like? NT: Pretty much everything a mountain backpacker would have, I had. Through the West, it was a lot of Bureau of Land Management land, so I’d just get 100 feet

off the road, pitch my tent, and call it good. Once you get over the Rockies, so much of it is private property. There were definitely a lot of roadside ditches and cornfields. NT: What’d you do about supplies and water? BW: When I was going across the desert I was pushing a little three-wheel baby carriage with gallon water jugs. From the Nevada border to Delta, Utah, that was 119 miles of no services, no houses, no nothing. That got me through that stretch of about five days. I walked about 20 miles a day on average. NT: Was that scary? BW: Not at all. The best training is doing it. By the time I got to the desert and these more challenging areas, I was ready for it. The hardest part is convincing yourself you can do it. If you have that confidence, chances are you can do it. NT: You walked in support of single-payer health care. Why? BW: Medicaid saved my life. Right before my diagnosis, the first mandatory Obamacare sign-up came around. They were like, ‘Do you know you qualify for Medicaid?’ I was putting off going to the hospital because I knew how much it was going to cost to get a good diagnostic. So [with Medicaid] I knew that I could go and not go bankrupt. Going for two days was over $42,000, and it really struck me that I was so fortunate to have just threaded that needle. In my opinion, there’s such a better way of handling it, looking at places like Canada or France or all of the Scandinavian countries. A huge part of health care costs in America is administrative. If you can cut that out and have one system instead of hundreds, you’re actually saving money while providing better and more coverage. So I did a fundraiser for Physicians for National Health Program, which is an advocacy group for single-payer health care, and raised about $2,000 for them. I talked to a lot of people about how health care expenses have impacted them. It’s something that really affects a ton of people. NT: So you struck up conversations with people as you walked? BW: One of the coolest things was being exposed to the world. It was one of the big reasons why I did it. In the 2016 election we heard so much about bubbles. But it was always the “others” are in their bubbles. It was really realizing that if the Central Coast isn’t a bubble, then I don’t know what the hell is. I’m pretty well educated, pretty well read, but I don’t really know anything about the world. I wanted to go out there and see it with my own eyes. The regional differences in America are so real and very valid. NT: How did the experience shift your perspective on the regional and political divides in America?

HALFWAY Arroyo Grande’s Ben Walther walked 3,600 miles across the country in 2017 after surviving cancer. Here he is near Lebanon, Kansas, at the geographical center of the U.S.

BW: It was incredibly humanizing. There was this one guy who was like Hagrid from Harry Potter—big beard, big hair, a road worker in the middle of Kansas. He put me up for the night. He was one of the most amazing, kind, generous people I’ve honestly ever met. Then I was leaving and I noticed he was flying the stars and bars [Confederate flag] out in front of his house. It’s like, on the one hand as a human being, you’re amazing. In terms of your ideology, you’re wrong. I met this other dude in Kansas. I ran out of water so he gave me a ride into town. He was a very rough individual and talked about how he was super pro-Trump, and what he really appreciated was that he was a no-bullshit kind of guy. He talked about when he was growing up, if you have a problem with somebody you take it out back, you throw down, and whoever wins is in the right, and that guy helps the other guy up and you move on with your lives. I could kind of understand that. I don’t agree with that, that’s not how I go through my life, but it’s about understanding where people are coming from. Going through the Rust Belt, I saw these towns that are like falling apart, especially with the opioid epidemic, where there are so many people out of work. I just saw the immense suffering that’s happening. It’s not like we don’t have it here, but we don’t have it to any degree they have it there. For a lot of people it is survival. When that’s what’s on the line, it’s very black and white. The person who just keeps saying, “I’m going to make

sure you’ll survive,” that’s who you’re going to go to to the exclusion of all else. It definitely didn’t change my mind in any way, but I definitely understood it a lot more. NT: What was that moment like when you made it to Delaware? BW: I was expecting to be super hyped and giddy, but I don’t think I’d been calmer in my entire life. What kept going through my head was just the idea that this isn’t the end. When I put my feet in the ocean—that’s not the end of the journey. The end of the journey is when they put me in the ground. That was one of the most meaningful things to me. NT: How did you decide to bike home? BW: My original plan was to see if I could find a job over there and start a life. But I didn’t really find anything and so I rode my bike from St. Augustine, Florida, to San Diego and then up to SLO, pretty much along the Gulf Coast. In a lot of ways that was much more fun. Doing the walk was kind of like a job, where this was my treat to myself. NT: Now that you’re home, where does this experience take you? BW: What I’m aiming to do is get into bike tours for a living. I also want to start volunteering my time to go on bike rides with people who are either in treatment for cancer or are done (see facebook.com/ WALTHER continued page 17

Help when it’s needed The Coast Guardsmen in Morro Bay need you, now

S

omething’s wrong when three strongwilled personalities have the ability to shut down an entire government and throw the world’s strongest economy into disarray. Sure, democracy is a messy way to run a country, and sure, Americans will always do the right thing after they’ve tried everything else. But this? Our government leaders tell 800,000 employees that they’re not going to be paid? And more than half of them are being told to work anyway? Is this the American dream? I’m going to drill down through those 420,000 people who are being told to work without pay to one particular instance, right here in San Luis Obispo County— the United States Coast Guard Motor Lifeboat Station in Morro Bay. Here we have 30 young men with two boats, patrolling and guarding 350 miles of California coastline from Monterey to the Channel Islands. They work around the clock in a building too small to house and feed them, and so they are given allowances to buy food and housing on the local economy. Usually. But not now. The United States government is withholding their pay, their food, their shelter. They’re not even getting money to buy gasoline to drive to work. And it’s not just the guardsmen—more than half of these young men are married with wives and children. What is the real-world effect on these young men and their families? They struggle to pay their rent or mortgage.

HODIN

And if they miss a payment, or are evicted, that’s a credit hit that follows them for years. Their school-age children go on the free lunch program. Stress at home rears its head. Wives struggle to make ends meet. And this carries over to work. When you report for duty, you have to be mission-ready, and that’s hard when your family is suffering and worrying about their next meal. My colleague, City Councilmember Dawn Addis, and I are working with Station Commander Senior Chief Boatswain’s Mate Timothy Crochet and his executive officer, Kacy Jones. Chief Crochet wants first to assure everyone that the station is fully operational. They have funds appropriated to continue to protect lives and property and provide national security. His entire force of 30 men, however, is receiving nothing for basic living expenses. More than half of his contingent has families living here. The guardsmen are receiving no salary and nothing to pay for food, housing, gasoline, or any normal living expenses. One young man enlisted in the Coast Guard 2 1/2 months ago, and has now served without pay for half of his career. By the end of this month, that will become critical, especially for younger troops who have not had time to build up savings. And here is where real America is revealing itself—people in the community are raising money, donating food, giving gift cards. Morro Bay Rotary Club donated $1,000 worth of gift cards. Jim Mang in

Russell Hodin

Cambria set up a GoFundMe account and has collected more than $2,000 so far. Countless individuals are knocking at the door of the station and bringing groceries. Morro Bay’s three safety departments—fire, police and harbor— donated $600. Cambria American Legion is providing free dinners to guardsmen and their families. Paul Worsham, president of SLO Veterans Service Collaborative, is mobilizing support from local American Legion posts. Kevin Drabinski has his food bank trucks ready to roll the minute he’s asked. From assisting with Wi-Fi to delivering a boatload of toilet paper, local businesses are stepping up. But the real need is for money. That’s what pays the rent, the mortgage, the everyday necessities for running a household, such as money to buy laundry soap so the men can wash their uniforms. Coast Guard Mutual Assistance is stretched thin. At this time, it’s able to make a one-time interest-free loan of $1,000 to families and $750 to individuals. That’s appreciated, but it doesn’t go very far. The Coast Guard is not allowed to receive donations of money, but the Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) can accept cash or checks. Chief Crochet is able to access the CPOA fund and disperse it as he deems necessary, with a full accounting of transactions. As part of my support for our Coast Guard, I am pledging my city salary to the CPOA fund until Coast Guard pay and allowances are restored. It’s not much—the city pays me $106 a week—but

I am donating all of it to the fund. Chief Crochet wants everyone to know that he appreciates the huge community support that his men are receiving, and they all send a big thank you to everyone. But first and foremost, they remain mission-ready, supporting and protecting the United States. Let’s all of us step forward and support and protect them. ∆ Robert “Red” Davis is a Morro Bay City Council member.

Letters To march or not to march

In January 2016, I joined my mom, cousins, and a couple of friends to do a march. I had never done this marching thing before, and I had little understanding of why I was marching at all. I knew we were mad at the sudden sanction of misogynistic, racist, hypocritical, and altogether hurtful rhetoric. We felt betrayed by “democracy”—the word we all so proudly promote across dinner table discussions. And most of all we felt fear for the unknown. I remember weighing just how fast hard-fought equalities could diminish in four years. Yet, how could marching solve such things? I understood it only as a source of solace for the whopping crowds of like-minded progressives, Trump haters, marginalized peoples, and simply concerned individuals like myself—a safe place to remind ourselves that other people are unhappy, too. LETTERS continued page 19


Opinion LETTERS from page 18

Then we arrived, and my unhappy-yetcomplacent state of mind was consumed, convulsed, and spit out by a massive snowstorm of angry chants, pussy-hats, inspiring stories, and heartfelt speeches. The unhappiness was shaken out of me, and with it the complacency; I was left with a weird sort of excitement, the sort of excitement I imagine you’d feel once being spit out of a snowstorm and realizing how blessed you are to be alive. That feeling was accompanied by the somewhat frightening realization that you should probably do something extraordinarily meaningful with your life. Thus, I decided to be complacent no more. But then I returned home and awoke the next day to the same country, the same demeaning rhetoric, and the same subconscious fear that I might have to look into colleges in Canada. I remembered that marching through the streets, however internally life-changing it may be, rarely achieves tangible progress (or at least progress in the sense that I understood it), and it felt like waking up to a puddle of cold drool. How was I supposed to be non-complacent if the structure of government, society, and my age required me to be complacent? Three years later, though, I still grapple with this question on a daily basis. I do believe there are very tangible things that happen when you march. For one, when I march I feel connected

with the community, and I learn from fellow marchers. I am reminded that everyone has their own reason for marching—everyone has their own story. Therefore we are not reinforcing one another’s beliefs, but rather by learning each other’s stories, we can better understand and make informed decisions. Secondly, when I march I can make myself known and share my own story. I can empower myself by contributing to something larger, and I can assert my 17-year-old perspective into the world of important adult decisions. When I march I am not hiding behind the internet or some angry blog, but step by step, I am showing the world that I care. Lastly, when I march, I am reminded that I have power, and when I am consumed by a mass of marchers, I am reminded by the words of Women’s March SLO founder Dawn Addis, that “no one has more power than me.” Audrey McClish Morro Bay

STILL STRUGGLING WITH CPAP? The danger of overcorrection

STILL STRUGGLING WITH CPAP?

In response to Mr. Sanville’s opinion piece in New Times’ Jan. 17 edition (“Wanting pain to go away isn’t a crime”), yes, there are many legitimate needs for pain medications that I do not think many providers in today’s “ultra-sensitiveto-addiction” world consider when clients come to them for treatment of legitimate chronic pain. There are those who abuse

narcotic drugs, but with the new CURES tracking computer system in place in California, those individuals can now be tracked and legitimately told “no.” But for many, chronic pain day in and day out wears an individual down and often leads to even worse outcomes for the patient. As over-prescribing pain medication is addressed in our communities and in our state, the individual with chronic pain who has shown a history of need should not be punished for their pain because doctors are afraid of sanctions for prescribing pain medications to treat a legitimate need. Nor should the individual be stigmatized by society. Bravo Mr. Sanville for making a valid point often overlooked in our zeal to correct a problem we created. Dr. Joanne Smith Morro Bay

Let’s start a women’s parade So there is another “women’s march” happening in SLO. Hey, I love women! I asked my wife what it is all about. She said there is no real message except they hate Trump. Well, my idea instead of a march is to make it a parade! We have Cal Poly, which has won several awards for their floats. Yes, right here in our hometown! After viewing recent marches, including those back in Washington, D.C., where women were wearing hats that represent a woman’s body part, it seems like Cal Poly could build a huge vagina float. We could have Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and even Babby Cakes (Barbra Streisand) riding on it. Then, instead of a march, everyone could call it a parade. I mean who doesn’t love a parade? We have them for the Fourth of July, New Year’s, Thanksgiving, etc. You all do know that Reader’s Digest named SLO one of the four happiest cities on earth. Yes, San Luis Obispo was named with Monterrey, Mexico; Århus, Denmark; and Singapore! Now that is something to celebrate. Not to mention Oprah Winfrey’s shout-out about our hometown.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AMY HEWES

More to do I rejoice in the rain, but not everyone has the luxury to appreciate the much-needed wet weather. I’m thinking again of our homeless citizens, who may have nothing more than a sheet or overpass to keep them dry. I still see the young woman I met last year camped out near the creek. She spoke to me from beneath a tarp strung about 3 feet above the ground. She was three months pregnant. Where are she and her baby now? Are they dry? Safe? Last spring, 40 Prado had not yet opened. With the image of this woman in mind, I decided to take a look at the new facility and see how it is helping alleviate homelessness in San Luis Obispo. Mychael Castillo, homeless services director at 40 Prado, eagerly showed me around. Wow. I had read about it but seeing the facility in person was a revelation. Especially compared to the inadequate old spaces at the Maxine Lewis Shelter and Prado Day Center, where clients had to walk across town to take advantage of day and night services, 40 Prado is transformative. “We have 122 beds, including 56 in the men’s dorm, 34 for families and 34 for women,” Castillo said. “We convert the cafeteria into a warming center when the temperatures drop, and we prioritize beds for women and families fleeing domestic violence.”

Every corner in the facility was spick and span. Beds made, corners smoothed tight; neatly packed container boxes and lockers held clients’ personal belongings. “If your stuff is all you’ve got, you can appreciate the anxiety you might have about security,” Castillo said. The center has 14 animal kennels, 50 bike spaces, 86 car spots, including spaces for overnight parking for individuals living in their cars. The building boasts a commercial kitchen that serves three meals a day (breakfast by Head Start and lunch by People’s Kitchen), and a commercial laundry room where clients can wash their clothes for free. Clients can meet with a case worker in the general-purpose room and look for a job in the computer room. “We serve 17 to 20 children per day in the children’s room,” Castillo said. “It’s a quiet space for families and a place for Head Start, which runs a day literacy program for parents and children—it’s a great way to advance adult literacy by helping clients read to their kids.” One of the things that struck me about 40 Prado was how calm, peaceful, and purposeful it was. It had the low hum of clients talking together at the tables, patiently waiting outside for a bed assignment. This is a place, I thought, where people can find dignity and heal.

Health services, too, are offered at 40 Prado. I spoke with Caitlin May, a physician’s assistant with Community Health Centers, who sees patients on-site several days a week. “Because services are co-located, we can bridge the needs of clients, like the SLO-HUB Project, which provides dual diagnosis for mental health and substance abuse disorders,” she said. “Plus, we have eight to 10 beds here for recuperative care, when patients have been released from the hospital and they need help managing post-release care. Can you imagine getting released from an emergency room with an I.V. and going to sleep on the streets?” May said that 40 Prado represents the “first real step” in delivering model health care. “I get to know my patients here,” May said. “We can’t heal everyone because it’s very difficult to resolve layers of social problems, but I’ve celebrated the success of clients who were disasters two years ago, and now they are clean, in housing, and have friends.” Castillo, too, calls 40 Prado “a start”: “We deliver services, not just shelter. Is it enough? No. On any given night there are 1,200 to 2,500 unsheltered homeless in San Luis Obispo; we have 122 beds. Not near enough.” I asked Castillo what’s needed aside from increased capacity. “Resources,” he responded. “We need service case managers. We have one. We need retention case managers to

follow individuals as they transition into housing. We need more permanent, supportive housing, like the 60Now units. “We need to offer sobering and detox services. We need outreach. The Community Action Team includes Officer T. Koznek and a social worker, John Klevins. Two of them to cruise all the corners and creek beds of SLO. It’s no secret that some homeless individuals are scared and resistant to services—we need to wear them down with outreach and opportunity. “San Luis Obispo has taken great strides in building a compassionate care and comprehensive service facility. We should be proud of what we’ve accomplished, but we’ll never be done because homelessness is a chronic condition.” Providers like Castillo, Klevins, May, and others offer clear-eyed perspectives on the issue. They ask that we, the community, listen and learn the facts. “I’ll lead tours around 40 Prado myself,” Castillo said. “Many of our clients are high functioning but down on their luck. I know. I was able to put myself through college because of Section 8 low-income housing.” I was humbled that Castillo shared his story. He benefitted from receiving help, yes, but how lucky are we in San Luis Obispo to have his help and expertise? Let’s keep homelessness—and affordable housing—a priority. We’ll all benefit. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action. Send comments through the editor at clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

The Shredder

Of eggs and country I don’t know if you guys have noticed or not, but we’re kind of falling apart over here. We’ve got employees all over SLO County who are either furloughed or being forced to work without pay, which is bullshit. Who wants to work without pay because their elected representatives have no capacity to understand what it really means to go without a paycheck? Our president is allegedly a “millionaire”—we really don’t know because all he will say is that he’s worth “a lot—like, A LOT—of money!” Our congressional representatives make upward of $170,000 a year. Two-fifths of them are millionaires. Do you think U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) would be voluntarily forgoing his paycheck if he worried about making his mortgage payment or feeding his family?? The average salary for a Transportation and Security Administration (TSA) employee is $48,000 per year. Starting salary is $27,000. Yup, those are the people who are in charge of your safety at airports and on flights, and even the security of your nation. They deal with your angry ass when you’re late for a flight and just really need to get through security, dammit! Why is that always when they decide to strip search you? Several TSA employees are now working on week five without pay at the SLO County Regional Airport, according to county Director of Airports (Yes, that’s

a plural! SLO County actually has more than one airport!) Kevin Bumen. GQ reported that 1 in 10 TSA employees are calling in sick during the partial government shutdown, but Bumen happily reported that’s not the case in SLO! We have healthy steadfast individuals working security at our airport!! No weaklings allowed. Although, the SLO County Public Health Department did release information about a serious case of influenza that’s making the rounds. I feel a case of nausea and body aches coming on. Donald “I need a wall now” Trump is so worried about the hordes of migrants “attacking” our southern border that he’s choosing to not pay the employees that we use to prevent terrorists from taking bombs on planes—and force a bunch of hapless, forgetful travelers to dump the contents of their water bottles in trash cans—that could crash into America’s most iconic places. Sick of pouring out your liquor in the security line? Want to take some sweet California cannabis to Indiana? Need to keep that 5-ounce bottle of concealer handy? Find an airport where half the TSA crew has called in sick and get crazy! The U.S. Coast Guard is responsible for protecting about 90,000 miles of coastline from security threats and the Exclusive Economic Zone that extends 200 miles from shore. The starting salary?

It’s $20,000 a year plus benefits. Members of the Coast Guard are in the only branch of the military that’s not getting paid during the Great Wall Debate of Doom. The 27-member station in Morro Bay runs about 300 miles of the California coast, saving people from themselves and others—finding abandoned panga boats full of dope and taking in that foggy air. Cambria resident Jim Mang started a GoFundMe to help those guys out. It’s already raised $3,500 of its $100,000 goal. Divide that between 27 people, and it’s $129 per person for the month of January. Who needs the government? But you know what? Let’s not worry about those guys. They’re not important. You know what is important? Border security. No, not our maritime borders. People don’t flee their countries via boat, silly. It’s those land borders that we should worry about. It’s the almost 2,000 miles of hot desert border that sidles up to Mexico that we need to worry about. It’s not like drug czars (ahem, El Chapo Guzman) have their cartels build crazy intricate tunnels underneath the wall that’s already there or anything. Let’s face it, people. It’s not terrorists or drugs that a wall is going to stop. It’s people with brown faces fleeing terrible situations. If you’re going to hold a quarter of our federal government hostage over beefing up border security by building a

stupidly expensive wall, at least be honest about what you’re trying to keep out of this country. And guess what? We’re not paying our U.S. Border Patrol agents or Customs and Border Protection officers, either. I don’t understand! How long do you think our borders will be “secure” if the people doing the protecting don’t get paid? How long will you work without a paycheck? And the E-verify system people, like our favorite immigration nut in Paso Robles, Michael Rivera (who did not get elected to serve on the City Council), push to make sure that the people in this country who are working are documented and legal? Yeah, umm. The funding for that is a no-go at the moment because of your favorite Negotiator in Chief. I feel like we should just crack two eggs into a pan with the MAGA logo on the handle and put up a live video feed on YouTube. “This is your country,” an awkwardly deep-voiced man will mumble. We can zoom in on the action and turn the volume up as the eggs cackle and bubble. Then a fork will prick both the yolks and the liquid will ooze out, destroying the perfect fried egg. “This is your country on Trump. Any questions?” ∆ The Shredder likes eggs over easy at shredder@newtimesslo.com.

PHOTO COURTESY OF MARTHA REDBONE

Look to the past Native and African-American soul singer Martha Redbone tells her truth

I

t’s been a weird week in America. The government is still shut down because the president demands American taxpayers pay for a monument to his ego on our southern border. A group of supposedly “Christian” high school students from Covington High School—who were bused into Washington, D.C., to march and demand that women be forced to have babies they don’t want—were caught on video sneering at and mocking Native American activist Nathan Phillips, who apparently stepped in to defuse tensions between the high schoolers and a group of protesting black men who were yelling at the MAGA hat-wearing kids. Even weirder, the whole fiasco blew up on social media with liberals piling on the apparently disrespectful kids while conservatives rationalized the kids’ behavior by condemning Phillips for being the aggressor. How’s that for partisan tribalism? And finally, James Baldwin’s 44-year-old novel about systemic racism, If Beale Street Could Talk, opened locally at the Palm Theatre, and its message seemed all too timely and not 44 years old at all. Clearly, the time feels right for Native and African-American soul singer Martha Redbone and her Bone Hill concert at Cal Poly’s Spanos Theatre this Sunday, Jan. 27 (7 p.m.; all ages; $39 general admission and $31.20 for students, faculty, and staff at calpolyarts.org or (805) 756-4849). Bone Hill is a piece of musical theater that Redbone and her longtime collaborator pianist, Aaron Whitby, developed at NYC’s Joe’s Pub in The Public Theater. The original musical production traces Redbone’s family back four

generations in their Kentucky homelands of the Black Mountains and the coal mines of Harlan County. The concert’s song genres change as Redbone, taking on the various characters of her ancestors, moves through time. You’ll hear traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies, rootsy bluegrass, blues, country, gospel, jazz, rock ’n’ roll, and R&B. Redbone’s family is a true American melting pot—Native American, African-American, and European. “Well, not only my family but also the whole town was a melting pot,” Redbone explained during a recent phone interview. “We were all coal mining families, and our story upends the cliché that the hill people associated with Appalachia were basically all a bunch of inbred rednecks. People forget that coal mining brought in people from all over: Portuguese, Turkish, African-American, Native American. People think of the Scottish, Irish, and Germans, but people came from all over, and their truths get shut by the wayside.” Bone Hill doesn’t shy away from dark and violent times in her family’s past, exploring colonialism and race, examining the plight of the Cherokee people upon their return home from the Trail of Tears, looking at the dynamics between Native and AfricanAmericans, and more. Does Redbone see parallels between her family’s story and what’s happening in American today? “Absolutely! How long do you have, you know?” she joked. “All of the things going on in STARKEY continued page 36

the world affecting everyone everywhere have been continually happening over time and are continuing to happen faster than we can get our heads around. I do think looking into the past helps explain how were got here. Even if there hasn’t been an actual genocide, there’s been a genocide on paper and through policies that are meant to affect certain groups of people, to exclude and contain them.” At the heart of Bone Hill is one woman’s attempt to look at “The Truth,” to pull back the curtain and face the facts. “The truth always rises. Even when families try to hide information, the truth comes out,” Redbone said. “I remember a story about [the actor] Jack Nicholson, who was raised by his grandmother, who he thought was his mother, while his real mother he thought was his sister. He didn’t find out until years later. The truth comes out.” You can hear Redbone’s truth this Sunday and decide for yourself how it fits into the context of America today. “I’m just really excited to tell this story out there in San Luis Obispo,” she said. “It always surprises me how the story seems to resonate with all people. It’s a real American story. I did the show in Texas and afterward an Indian family from India came up and told me how they had moved to Texas in the 1990s, and their struggle to become American but to also hold onto their home culture.” Every American has a story. Witnessing Redbone’s may remind you of yours. Also at Cal Poly this week, see iconic trumpeter and composer Herb Alpert in the Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Jan. 26 (8 p.m.; all ages; $32 to $52 general and $25.60 to $41.60 students, faculty, and staff at calpolyarts. org or (805) 756-4849). “The Lonely Bull,” “A Taste of Honey,” “Rise,” and “This Guy’s in Love with You” are but a few of Alpert’s hits. He’ll be joined by his wife, Lani Hall, a Grammy Award-winning vocalist and former lead singer with Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66.

Move with it Paso Robles Art Association debuts In Motion show

S

ometimes Carma Coleman just lets her art take her whichever way the wind blows that day. So when the wind literally blew over her canvas in progress again and again, she decided to roll with it. The 18-year-old Paso Robles multimedia artist was working outside creating the abstract piece that would become Morning Wind for the Paso Robles Art Association’s latest show, In Motion, currently on display at Studios on the Park, when a particularly strong gust of wind knocked it over. The show curators asked local artists to take the exhilaration of movement—flying, skipping, spinning, coasting—and apply it to media like paintings, sculpture, ceramic, glass, collage, assemblage, photography, digital art, and mixed media. So Coleman took that gust of wind as a collaborative gesture, rather than a sign that she needed to start over. “It fell twice, and I thought it looked cool,” Coleman said. “I literally used motion to make that piece.” Morning Wind features a combination of acrylic paint and barbed wire wrapped around a canvas. The finished result almost looks like a ragged, warped wooden fence with bursts of red dripping down. “I’m feelings-based with my pieces,” Coleman said. “I’m a very sensitive person so it’s like therapy in a way.” When Paso Robles artist Cathy Luther went out to the Chesebrough Farm pumpkin patch in October, she took 30 photos of an idyllic windmill, spinning about, that she happened upon. After working in the computer program Topaz to layer on the texture effect and add in

dreamy, drifting clouds, one of those photos would become the piece, Wind In Motion. The end result looks a bit a the pictureperfect postcard. “Digital enhances it more,” Luther said of her work. “It’s more of a clear shot.” While watercolor artist Alice Ronke lives in North County, she regularly takes trips just a bit south or north to spots like Cayucos, Morro Bay, and Moonstone Beach to be where the sand meets the water for inspiration. “I love the ocean,” Ronke said. “I go there to paint frequently. I sit on the beach and am inspired by the ocean and the people who come along.” Both waves and people are always moving. That very synergistic relationship led Ronke to paint pieces like Paddleboarding while hanging out at Cayucos beach. In her painting, a lone paddleboarder calmly navigates choppy waves while an orange sun beams brightly in the background. It could be either sunset or sunrise, but both man and waves move forward. “The waves are in constant motion,” Ronke said. “The paddleboarder can take advantage of that to propel himself forward.” When people look at Ronke’s watercolor pieces, she hopes they see more than just pretty pictures. She wants them to experience the local area the way that she does. “I try to capture the feeling that I have when I see beauty,” Ronke said. “And I’ll tell you, SLO County has a lot of beauty.” ∆ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley likes it when things flow. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

So at the end of Hands-on 2018, the county To put a hold on a Mobile library system MakerKit or for online rolled out its tutorials on how to use Mobile MakerKit them, visit slolibrary.org. program, which allows adult library cardholders to check out a virtual reality device, sewing or embroidery kit, a JD Humanoid robot, a Wacom Cintiq tablet, and more for free for up to three weeks. “It’s turning out to be very popular so far,” Coronado said. “Everything has holds.” The library offers 12 kits with different devices and equipment for various projects. The Mobile MakerKits are funded by $10,000 in grants from the State Library and the Southern California Library Cooperative. “I think our patrons are very capable of amazing things, and the maker movement is the perfect conduit for that,” Coronado said. Coronado also said that so far the Oculus Go, a virtual reality headset device made by Facebook, is proving to be the most requested item out of the Mobile MakerKits. At just $200, the 32-gigabyte version of the Oculus Go is an affordable way to offer virtual reality to more people. “People can have virtual reality in their homes,” Coronado said. Using the Oculus Go, library patrons can meet with friends and also participate in different games or experiences. Many popular movies and shows, like Coco and Stranger Things, offer interactive experiences on the Oculus Go. Cardholders can also check out the robotics kit, which includes a JD Humanoid robot, or create digital art on a tablet or engage in more traditional

crafting like sewing and embroidery. The adult section of the library website now includes a resources page with different tutorials that go with each kit. If a device from a kit is damaged, lost, or stolen, Coronado said that patrons won’t be charged the full retail price of an item. The cost of repairs or replacements would be determined on a case-by-case basis. “The most important thing for us is that people use the library,” she said. Currently there are about 65 holds on the 12 different Mobile MakerKits, with one third of those holds being for the two Oculus Go devices. Coronado said the library hopes to expand the program and is working to see which devices are most desired and if local residents would sponsor more kits. “We’re always here to listen,” Coronado said.

What’s jail awaiting trial, Tish’s pregnancy, and amazing about the film and book is it’s flashbacks to their budding relationship also a complicated and tender love story, and plans for the future. We watch as a celebration of black family life, and an Fonny becomes a shell of himself, gaunt optimistic clarion call that despite the and broken as his trial gets pushed horrors piled upon the black community, further and further away and as hope there’s an unstoppable nobility there. and money quickly diminish.

At its center, this is a pitted against itself.

I left the theater both furious at our communities of color in culture and amazed by Baldwin’s and check. Likewise, Victoria Jenkins’ narrative gifts. riter-director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) helms this story based on James Baldwin’s novel about Harlem woman Tish Rivers (KiKi Layne) trying to clear her fiancé, Alonzo “Fonny” Hunt (Stephan James), of a crime he didn’t commit while carrying their first child. (119 min.)

Rogers (Emily Rios), the Hispanic woman who was raped, is directed by the police to pick Fonny out of a lineup even though she can’t identify him as the rapist. She’s told he did it, so she says he did it. She’s no freer to do the right thing than Fonny is free to effectively defend himself against the false charges. Tish and one of Fonny’s friends, Daniel Carty (Brian Tyree Henry), may have been with Fonny at the time of the rape, but Tish is his fiancée and Daniel is an ex-con, so neither alibi means anything. The police have the power, and Rogers’ violation is doubled by dragging an innocent man into the mess. The only obvious villain in it all is Officer Bell (a marvelously malevolent Ed Skrein), who saw Fonny thrash a white man for harassing Tish but couldn’t arrest him because too many witnesses saw the truth. I’m still infuriated days later thinking about the injustice of it all. Tish’s and Fonny’s fathers even turn to petty crime to make enough money to send Tish’s mother, Sharon (a fierce and riveting Regina King), to Puerto Rico to implore Rogers to tell the truth and save Fonny. These men aren’t criminals, but the story shows the lengths they’ll go to save their kids from heartache. We’re writing this on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, and it seems appropriate to quote him: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” That’s this film’s message, too. Anna Skrein is fantastic as the racist and crooked cop. His hate is abundantly clear from his encounter with Fonny, and his promise to “see you around” haunts the young couple when Officer Bell comes upon a crime to pin on him. All of the performances are masterful. Jenkins is a gem at casting. These actors evoke layers upon layers of depth into these characters—no role is small even if brief. In one scene, Daniel is over for dinner with Tish and Fonny, and while Tish is busy in the kitchen, Daniel starts to tell Fonny about his recent stint in jail. He was falsely accused of stealing a car and had a little pot on him at the time. So which do you take, the theft you didn’t commit or the drug charge that will put you away for longer? There’s no right answer, and the justice system chews up young black men and spits them out with nothing but a record and a chip on their shoulder. Blatant racism isn’t justice, and with the preponderance of those incarcerated being black men, the problems of 44 years ago are obviously still rampant today. This is an important film, one that will no doubt haunt me. I can’t wait to see what Jenkins give us next. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

GLASS

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10, Sunset Drive-in In Glass, M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Village, Lady in the Water, The Happening) brings back three of his most iconic characters, directing Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, and James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, a man with 24 personalities. The three are meshed together in a psychiatric ward to rid them of their superhuman delusions while Elijah has a plan of his own to bring the comic book plot to life. The film opens up with David Dunn (you’ll remember him from the 2000 film, Unbreakable), who’s basically an upgrade to neighborhood watch. He and his son, Joseph (Spencer Treat Clark), are the community’s vigilantes, keeping an eye on injustice and stopping it in its tracks, even if it means beating up a stupid kid or two. Because of that, law enforcement isn’t really keen on David’s efforts. They actually see him as a villain (similar to Gotham City and Batman’s relationship). David and Joseph are hot on the heels of Kevin, who, when the beast (one of his personalities) gets out, has held people hostage and mangled their bodies. Currently Kevin has four cheerleaders hostage in an empty warehouse. When David accidentally touches Kevin’s arms, he has an uncanny vision of the location of the girls, and in the mist of letting them go, he encounters the beast. The two fight and end up falling out of a window where police have surrounded them, ready to take them both into custody. But instead of a cell, they’re taken to a psychiatric ward under Dr. Ellie Staple’s care—her specialty is delusions of grandeur. She’s basically there to say, “Hey you’re making up your freakish strength in your mind.” Somehow this doeeyed woman has every explanation under the sun for David’s bizarre strength and for Kevin’s outlandish ability to walk on walls and ceilings. And surprise surprise, the ward’s longtime resident is none other than Elijah, the mastermind behind the Eastrail 177 train crash, but he’s highly sedated … or so we think. Dr. Staple has a ridiculous three days to whip these three into shape, but otherwise “vegetable” Elijah has another plan. Look, I know what you’re thinking: This is too long of a buildup to wait for a plot twist that we all know is coming. But with that said, I can honestly say I loved every minute of this film. We’re so used to superheroes that have some sort of connection to a mythical god and are destined for greatness. These heroes are based on comic books’ stories but Shyamalan based his trilogy on the structure of the comic books themselves. He has a totally different take on his superheroes: They’re just people. While I can see the blatant faults in this movie, I still believe it was worth my $12. I’ll admit Willis was so boring to watch on the screen, and Jackson was subpar— remember he’s supposedly highly sedated

Chuck isn’t Jimmy’s only tie to HH&M: He’s also secretly dating an attorney at the firm, Kim Wexler (a tremendous Rhea Seehorn), who serves throughout as Jimmy’s voice of reason and his liaison between the aboveboard legal world and the ethically nebulous space he operates in. Ultimately, Jimmy’s drive to survive and succeed, in concert with his genuine talent at law, eventually elevates him to working with his bro on a big-time case—but there’s many a twist to come. Similarly to Breaking Bad, where we witness a passive high school chemistry teacher devolve into a Machiavellian drug lord, Better Call Saul portrays the tragic trajectory of characters slipping deeper and deeper into criminality and corruption. Also returning from Breaking Bad is retired cop Mike Ehrmantraut (an amazing Jonathan Banks), who’s given his own downward character arc that just feels destined to merge with Jimmy’s. In my view, no one in television is exploring the hazy lines of morality better than Gilligan. Characters you’d think you would root against, you find yourself rooting for, and vice-versa. Every actor turns in fantastic performances, with Odenkirk leading the way as the one-of-akind Jimmy McGill, who charms as much as he infuriates over the course of this captivating journey.

The film covers Cheney’s life from his drunken and loutish youth through his Machiavellian turn as the puppeteer behind George W.

Unnecessary war, “legalized” torture, bolstering corporations and the super rich—those are Cheney’s enduring legacies.

It’s all about beers, nachos, and unfussy fun at Broad Street Public House

M

ike Cross knows his audience. As a former pastor, it was the youth; as a lifelong musician, it’s always the next person making a song request; and as the beer-pourer and nacho-scientist behind Broad Street Public House—which he coowns alongside Ash Management’s Bill Hales—it’s the most basic desires of the average SLO resident. I mean, who likes wet nachos? His audience certainly does not. So, Cross went about fixing the age-old problem. “I’ve worked in bars and restaurants, and people are always sending half of the plate back because the nachos get soggy in the middle,” Cross says while wiping down the bar, which opened on June 1, 2018. “That’s why we layered everything just so, and put everything on the side; Your second the sour cream, salsa. We living room put a lot of thought into it. Broad Street Public House is We’re also going to offer located at 3590 Broad St. in San different nachos, and you’ll Luis Obispo and is open 3 to 10 be able to choose your own p.m. daily. For more information, toppings.” find them on Facebook. Really, it’s the little, unfussy things—like building the perfect nachos or totchos (yes, Cross is hot on the tater tot nacho trend)—that make a welcoming neighborhood bar. You want to go where everyone knows your name, and that’s not usually the nearest swanky gastropub. Tucked away from downtown with low light, vinyl spinning on the turntable, classic ’80s video games, and super simple menu items—like the throwback Minnesota Cheese Plate (sharp cheddar, mustard, summer sausage, ciabatta)— Broad Street Public House isn’t trying to elevate your experience to new heights. Instead, it aims to ground you. “People aren’t coming here because we have this wine or that; it’s because this place is warm and welcoming, we have shuffleboard tournaments on Tuesday nights and darts. It’s a mellow place to come hang out and have a few beers,” Cross said, adding that he has no desire to offer anything harder than beer and wine. No, Broad Street Public House is not a dive bar—it is something more sincere. Currently, you can find Russian River Brewing Co.’s Pliny the Elder on the rotating tap, and once a quarter, Cross opens the roll-up doors and wheels in a slew of classic ’80s arcade games for spirited competitions. Thursdays you’ll always find live music, and Saturdays are always a wild

CROWD PLEASING Craft beer, nachos, and old-school video games? Very few would say “no” to this good-time trio, on tap now at Broad Street Public House. The new hangout is located at 3590 Broad St. in San Luis Obispo.

Got a few old records you’d like to hear spun for the first time in ages? Bring ’em in and the staff will spin them and perhaps even reminisce with you about the joys of The Who. Sunday is always trivia night, but it’s a little different from what you might expect. Tip: Bring your brainiest friend to compete in this hot-blooded competition. “We have a Cal Poly professor who writes the questions every week. It’s his passion, and he goes to all the other trivia events in town and creates a totally unique event for us,” Cross said, adding that he’s yet to win a question (fingers crossed for next Sunday). Yes, Broad Street Public House is just far enough away from the boots-and-hats-and-boots-and-hats bump of downtown to offer such novel ideas as trivia, parking, and audible conversation. A wholesome “buy a beer for a friend” board will soon be up and active, encouraging locals to pass it forward (talk about a classic idea you don’t see happening at downtown bars so much anymore). Cross said ladies in their 60s are known to meet over a glass of wine next to blue collar buddies sharing an afterwork brew. College kids and grandpas compete for bragging rights on the shuffleboard table. Come as you are, no dress code, no “beer cocktails,” no artisanal tapas. Kinda takes you back. Remember just 10 years ago, when we all just went to bars to hang out, not to prove we knew more than the mixologist? Cross does, and there are others who are starting to wake up, too. “You’ll see a 28-year-old yoga instructor and a 69-year-old retiree playing as a team,” Cross says. “This really is your neighborhood pub; we created it to be like your living room.” ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain wants to go where everyone knows her name.

The Sun in Northern Santa Barbara County is looking for its next staff writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, sourcewrangling, story-chasing someone. Are you sick of editing or regurgitating press releases day after day? Or maybe it’s those damn list things—you know the ones: “Top 10 hottest places to eat your lunch on a rainy day.” Or maybe it’s just not being able to put the time and reporting into a story that deserves it: the weeks and repeated phone calls that give a story what it needs to ripen into the hard-charging, data-filled narrative it’s dying to be; the time that turns a “meh” story into one that blows a hole in the status quo. Can you see the big picture of what a story means to a community? Is that what drives you? Do you know what it takes to—yes, we know, it’s cliché—make a difference in the lives of the people you cover? Does that sort of thing matter to you? If so, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for: a staff writer who isn’t afraid to take on the tedious, the tenuous, or the talented. That certain someone who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to the communities we cover at the Sun and New Times. Oil, agricultural, water, and environmental advocacy aren’t the only things that drive this place—although those are pretty juicy beats. There’s more, and we want to hire someone who can drive his or herself to unearth those stories and tell them in a meaningful way. Let us know if you’ve got what it takes. We dare you.

NOTICE: ALL AMERICAN FORECLOSURE SERVICE, AS TRUSTEE, WILL NOT ACCEPT THIRD PARTY ENDORSED CASHIER’S CHECKS. ALL CASHIER’S CHECKS MUST BE PAYABLE DIRECTLY TO ALL AMERICAN FORECLOSURE SERVICE.

The amount may be greater on the day of sale. Trustor: Takken Investment Properties, LLC, Duly Appointed Trustee: All American Foreclosure Service. Recorded 5/5/2017 as Instrument No. 2017019825 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of San Luis Obispo County, California. Date of Sale: 1/31/2019 at 11:00 AM. Place of Sale: In the breezeway adjacent to the County General Services Bldg. located at 1087 Santa Rosa St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $308,388.57. Street Address or other common designation of real property: 668 Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. A.P.N.: 002-422020. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of the monies paid to the trustee and the successful bidder shall have no recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (805) 543-7088 or visit this Internet Web site www.eloandata. com , using the file number assigned to this case 41988. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Date: 12/28/2018. All American Foreclosure Service, 1363 Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 (805) 543-7088.

AMENDED NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: JOSEPHINE H. GONZALEZ (AMENDED) CASE NUMBER: 18PR - 0293

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: JOSEPHINE H. GONZALEZ AN AMENDED PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by ERMA GONZALEZ in the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo. The Petition for Probate requests that ERMA GONZALEZ be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: March 5, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept: 9, in Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo, located at 1035 Palm St., Room 385, San Luis Obispo, CA 93408. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a formal Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: Shannon M. Bio 1212 Marsh Street, Suite 3 San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 January 17, 24, & 31, 2019

Wastewater Pretreatment StandardsViolations A federally mandated industrial wastewater monitoring program is in effect in the City of San Luis Obispo. The City of San Luis Obispo’s Pretreatment Program was established to provide protection to the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) and wastewater collection system by controlling the introduction of non-domestic wastes to its facility and system. This program is required by law and uses the Federal General Pretreatment Regulations (40 CFR 403) and the City’s Sewer Use Ordinance to enforce the general discharge prohibitions and specific Categorical Pretreatment Standards. To fulfill public participation requirements of the Pretreatment Program, significant violators of the wastewater discharge regulations must be published in the local newspaper at least once a year. Therefore, those industrial users of the City sewer system who have significantly violated discharge regulations will be published with a brief summary of the nature of the violation(s).

ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): We might initially be inclined to ridicule Stuart Kettell, a British man who spent four days pushing a Brussels sprout up 3,560-foot-high Mount Snowden with his nose. But perhaps our opinion would become more expansive once we knew that he engaged in this stunt to raise money for a charity that supports people with cancer. In any case, the coming weeks would be a favorable time for you, too, to engage in extravagant, extreme, or even outlandish behavior on behalf of a good or holy cause.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The old Latin verb crescere meant “to come forth, spring up, grow, thrive, swell, increase in numbers or strength.” We see its presence in the modern English, French, and Italian word “crescendo.” In accordance with astrological omens, I have selected crescere and its present participle crescentum to be your words of power for the next four weeks. May they help mobilize you to seize all emerging opportunities to come forth, spring up, grow, thrive, swell, and increase in numbers or strength.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

(April 20-May 20): The Taurus guitar wizard known as Buckethead is surely among the most imaginative and prolific musicians who has ever lived. Since producing his first album in late 2005, he has released 306 other albums that span a wide variety of musical genres—an average of 23 per year. I propose that we make him your patron saint for the next six weeks. While it’s unlikely you can achieve such a gaudy level of creative self-expression, you could very well exceed your previous personal best in your own sphere.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Novelist Arthur Conan Doyle created Sherlock Holmes, a fictional character who personifies the power of logic and rational thinking. And yet Doyle was also a devout spiritualist who pursued interests in telepathy, the occult, and psychic phenomena. It’s no surprise that he was a Gemini, an astrological tribe renowned for its ability to embody apparent opposites. Sometimes that quality is a liability for you folks, and sometimes an asset. In the coming weeks, I believe it’ll be a highly useful skill. Your knack for holding paradoxical views and expressing seemingly contradictory powers will attract and generate good fortune.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In 2006, a 176-year-old tortoise named Harriet died in an Australian zoo owned by “Crocodile Hunter” and TV personality Steve Irwin. Harriet was far from her original home in the Galapagos Islands. By some accounts, evolutionary superstar Charles Darwin picked her up and carried her away during his visit there in 1835. I propose that you choose the long-lived tortoise as your power creature for the coming weeks. With her as inspiration, meditate on questions like these: 1. “What would I do differently if I knew I’d live to a very old age?” 2. “What influence that was important to me when I was young do I want to be important to me when I’m old?” 3. “In what specific ways can my future benefit from my past?” 4. “Is there a blessing or gift from an ancestor I have not yet claimed?” 5. “Is there anything I can do that I am not yet doing to remain in good health into my old age?”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): John Lennon claimed that he generated the Beatles’ song “Because” by rendering Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” backwards. Even if that’s true, I don’t think it detracts from the beauty of “Because.” May I suggest you adopt a comparable strategy for your own use in the coming weeks, Leo? What could you do in reverse so as to create an interesting novelty? What approach might you invert in order to instigate fresh ways of doing things? Is there an idea you could turn upside-down or inside-out, thereby awakening yourself to a new perspective?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Tsonga language is spoken by more than 15 million people in southern Africa. The literal meaning of the Tsonga phrase I malebvu ya nghala is “It’s a lion’s beard,” and its meaning is “something that’s not as scary as it looks.” According to my astrological analysis, this will be a useful concept for you to be alert for in the coming weeks. Don’t necessarily trust first impressions or initial apprehensions. Be open to probing deeper than your instincts might influence you to do.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When animals hibernate, their metabolism slows down. They may grow more underfur or feathers, and some add extra fat. To conserve heat, they may huddle together with each other. In the coming weeks, I don’t think you’ll have to do what they do. But I do suspect it will be a good time to engage in behaviors that have a resemblance to hibernation: slowing down your mind and body; thinking deep thoughts and feeling deep feelings; seeking extra hugs and cuddles; getting lots of rich, warm, satisfying food and sleep. What else might appeal to your need to drop out of your fastpaced rhythm and supercharge your psychic batteries?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When people tell me they don’t have time to read the books I’ve written, I advise them to place the books under their pillows and soak up my words in their dreams. I don’t suggest that they actually eat the pages, although there is historical precedent for that. The Bible describes the prophet Ezekiel as literally chewing and swallowing a book. And there are accounts of 16th-century Austrian soldiers devouring books they acquired during their conquests, hoping to absorb the contents of the texts. But in accordance with current astrological omens, I suggest that in the next four weeks you acquire the wisdom stored in books by actually reading them or listening to them on audio recordings. In my astrological opinion, you really do need, for the sake of your psychospiritual health, to absorb writing that requires extended concentration.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Among the top “how to” search inquiries on Google are “how to buy Bitcoin,” “how to lose belly fat fast,” “how to cook spaghetti in a microwave,” and “how to make slime.” While I do think that the coming weeks will be prime time for you to formulate and launch many “how to” investigations, I will encourage you to put more important questions at the top of your priority list. “How to get richer quicker” would be a good one, as would “how to follow through on good beginnings” and “how to enhance your value” and “how to identify what resources and allies will be most important in 2019.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A motivational speaker and author named Nick Vujicic was born without arms or legs, although he has two small, unusually shaped feet. These facts didn’t stop him from getting married, raising a family of four children, and writing eight books. One book is titled Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life. He’s a positive guy who has faith in the possibility of miracles. In fact, he says he keeps a pair of shoes in his closet just in case God decides to bless him with a marvelous surprise. In accordance with current astrological omens, Aquarius, I suggest you make a similar gesture. Create or acquire a symbol of an amazing transformation you would love to attract into your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): About 11 percent of the Philippines’ population is composed of Muslims who call themselves the Bangsamoro. Many resist being part of the Philippines and want their own sovereign nation. They have a lot of experience struggling for independence, as they’ve spent 400 years rebelling against occupation by foreign powers, including Spain, the United States, and Japan. I admire their tenacity in seeking total freedom to be themselves and rule themselves. May they inspire your efforts to do the same on a personal level in the coming year. ∆
