CAPSLO, county to pursue a detox facility at new homeless center

C

iting a glaring need for more drug and alcohol detoxification services in San Luis Obispo County, on Jan. 23 the county Board of Supervisors signed off on conceptual plans to build and operate a new detox treatment center in SLO. Proposed on the property that will house the Community Action Partnership of SLO’s (CAPSLO) new homeless center in the city of SLO, “40 Prado,” the 8- to 10-bed facility could eventually provide medical detox services and residential treatment for low-income residents suffering from substance abuse disorders. Health officials told county supervisors in a board meeting presentation that detox services are “entirely lacking” in the county and service providers “haven’t had anywhere to send people.” A new contract with the state Department of Health Care Services inked last month also requires that the county provide more residential detox services within the next three years, either within the county or elsewhere. “Without a residential treatment program available locally for Medi-Cal beneficiaries, the Health Agency will be required to contract with out of county providers for this level of care,” a county staff report stated. Only five detox beds are currently available to serve low-income Medi-Cal patients—at Bryan’s House in Paso Robles, which is for perinatal women only—despite the fact that an estimated 22,300 to 27,100 local adults suffer from substance abuse disorders. “This has been long overdue at this point,” said 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold, before the supervisors unanimously voted to direct staff to continue working with CAPSLO on the project. According to county Behavioral Health Administrator Anne Robin, of the 2,269 adults who received substance abuse services from

IMAGE COURTESY OF THE COMMUNITY ACTION PARTNERSHIP OF SLO

NEED FOR DETOX SLO County and the Community Action Partnership of SLO are partnering on a new detoxification facility at the “40 Prado” homeless center, currently under construction.

the county in 2015, only 2 percent needed detoxification, which is why a 8- to 10-bed facility was proposed. Once admitted to the detox center, patients would spend six to eight days in medical withdrawal, followed by up to 30 days in a residential treatment program. While the 40 Prado homeless center plans to open this summer, the detox facility may take two years to complete, according to county estimates. Capital costs for the 2,880 square-foot facility are estimated at $730,000, and CAPSLO staff said private philanthropists are interested in helping fund its construction. Before proceeding, though, donors wanted assurance that the county would commit to running the facility for the long haul, which was why the item came before the Board of Supervisors, according to CAPSLO. The county plans to contract detox operations to a thirdparty provider.

While all five supervisors supported the project, Supervisors Bruce Gibson and Adam Hill expressed concern about the ongoing operational cost to run the center, pegged at $1.2 million per year. Operational expenses will be partially offset by Medi-Cal and Affordable Care Act (ACA) reimbursements as well as grants, but their extent is unclear. County staff added that federal changes to the ACA could significantly change the prospects for the facility, potentially “reducing program service levels or closing the facility.” Gibson and Hill noted that county funds could be tied up with other spending needs on the horizon, like health care reforms at the county jail. Sheriff Ian Parkinson spoke in favor of the project at the meeting, noting that residents with substance abuse issues come “in and out of jail all the time.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

Pismo council extends moratorium on tattoo parlors, other businesses

plans to overhaul its commercial core to better promote food, wine, and “unique specialty retail” businesses. Those plans include adding new hotels and restaurants and an $8.7 million renovation of its pier and plaza area downtown, as well as a $12.2 million streetscaping project along Shell Beach road. Lewis said the list of businesses was developed because they were not consistent with the council’s vision for the city’s commercial areas. “I think people really appreciate that you are trying to step up your commercial community core,” Lewis told the council. “These are all things where you are really trying to elevate the experience there.” The 10-month extension would give city staff time to draft a permanent ordinance overhauling regulations on the businesses included in the moratorium, which they would bring back to the council for approval before December. “We are going to go through the regular process later on this year through the Planning Commission and council and refine them as needed,” Mayor Ed Waage said. —Chris McGuinness

As it eyes plans to revamp its downtown core, members of the Pismo Beach City Council voted to extend a temporary moratorium on tattoo parlors, smoke shops, and other businesses deemed “inconsistent” with the city’s future plans. The council initially passed the temporary moratorium—which also includes massage parlors, plasma donation centers, payday loan businesses, gold and silver exchanges, bail bond businesses, resale shops, pawn shops, and tire sales and repair businesses—on Dec. 4. The council voted 4-0 on Jan. 16, with Councilmember Sheila Blake absent, to extend the temporary moratorium for another 10 months and 15 days. The moratorium prohibits the approval, expansion, or relocation of those businesses, meaning that ones currently operating in the city can continue to do so. “We are hitting pause,” City Manager Jim Lewis said. The extension on the urgency ordinance comes as the council is moving forward with

Morro Bay residents concerned about potential building height increases

The Morro Bay City Council responded to community outcry over a proposal to allow three-story tall buildings within the downtown area by removing it from the city’s downtown strategic plan at a Jan. 23 meeting—but didn’t ditch the idea entirely. “There’s so many beautiful views of the rock, even over buildings, where you have the mound of the rock. If you raise the height of the buildings we’re going to lose that,” Tina Metzger said during the meeting’s public comment. “Most of us don’t want this to turn into a Huntington Beach. We love the town the way it is.” Metzger was one of 14 community members who spoke out about the potential height change for commercial buildings outlined in the Downtown Waterfront Strategic Plan, which sets development guidelines for decision making over the next five to 10 years. The plan would have enabled buildings up to 37 feet tall in the downtown area, with an additional 7 feet allowed for architectural extensions to the building such as equipment. Morro Bay Community Development Manager Scot Graham said as part of the strategic plan, the building height would merely be a design guideline, not necessarily a definitive change. “They don’t set policy as it relates to what our development standards are. It says, ‘Hey, we’d like to go there, you adopt it, then we look and see what that would look like inside of our zoning code,’” Graham said. Currently, the general maximum height is 30 feet and the city does allow for additional architectural extensions—it just requires a conditional use permit. The proposed height guideline stemmed from conversations between workshops with the public, an advisory committee, the Planning Commission, and the City Council, Graham said, and a desire to have buildings that were tall enough to accommodate retail and living spaces. “One of the visions from the discussions is maybe it would be good to encourage mixed-use buildings and put residential above. That would get people living downtown, and maybe our shops would stay open later or there could be more restaurant options come in,” Graham said. Mayor Jamie Irons and Mayor Pro Tem John Headding recused themselves from the meeting as both have vested business interests in the downtown area. The board adopted the strategic plan 3-0 but removed the specific building height from the plan, leaving it for the Planning Commission to discuss. Graham said the community has the chance to talk about the potential commercial building height at the next Planning Commission meeting on Feb. 6. —Karen Garcia

Security bollards for downtown SLO: $1.2 million, city says

Retractable steel bollards and other unspecified infrastructure meant to block inroads to the San Luis Obispo Farmers’ Market and deter a theoretical vehicular attack will cost the city $1.2 million, according to city officials. While details on the plan are sparse, City Manager Derek Johnson said he

plans to make “substantial progress” on the project within one year. New Times first reported in early January about the city’s intent to boost security downtown with a series of steel bollards, in light of recent incidents of vehicular terrorism throughout the world. City staff will ask the SLO City Council on Feb. 20 to allocate $1.2 million of “savings” found in last year’s budget for the security measures, which “are available for one-time purposes such as a capital improvement project,” Johnson said. Johnson said much of the plan is still under review, but “the idea is to largely provide barriers to provide protection for the Farmers’ Market and Mission Plaza.” “We don’t have any details,” Johnson said. “Once formally approved by the City Council, there are whole range of considerations, including existing utilities in the right of way that need to be considered when selecting the type and location of the proposed protective measures.” City staff will present a report to the council on Feb. 20 with the overall schedule and approach for the security measures. —Peter Johnson

Perez murder trial begins

Jurors heard opening arguments on Jan. 23 in the murder trial of a Grover Beach man accused of stabbing his roommate to death and lighting the body on fire. While SLO County prosecutors claimed that the man, 43-year-old Manuel Jesus Perez, pre-planned the murder of his housemate Joseph Charles Kienly IV, a lawyer for Perez argued that his client was acting self-defense. Perez was arrested in SLO shortly after Kienly’s badly burned body was found July 11 at home in the Grover Beach where they both were renting rooms. In his opening arguments, SLO County Deputy District Attorney Michael Frye said Perez premeditated the murder, manufacturing a homemade weapon out of two steak knives and buying lighter fluid in the days leading up to Kienly’s death. On the night of the murder, Frye said Perez waited in a dark hallway outside of Kienly’s room, smoking methamphetamine to stay awake. “He’d been waiting for the victim for at least 45 minutes,” Frye told jurors. Perez would later tell police investigators that he waited “like a cheetah waits for a gazelle,” Frye said. Defense attorney Steven Rice pushed back on Frye’s argument in his opening statement, claiming that Kienly had been an inconsiderate housemate and had antagonized and harassed Perez. Rice said that Perez tried to confront Kienly about the alleged harassment the night of the incident, and made the knife out of fear that the confrontation might turn violent. Rice told the jurors that Perez stabbed Kienly out of self-defense after Kienly tried to hit him during the argument. “It wasn’t his intent to kill [Kienly],” Rice said. “He was prepared to use violence if he had to, but he didn’t want to.” During his statement, Rice admitted that Perez was guilty of arson. “This case is about frustration, anger, and bad choices that did result in Mr. Kienly dying,” Rice said. Frye disputed the allegations that Kienly had been harassing Perez noting that said harassment included claims by Perez that Kienly had been “drilling holes” in the

6 • New Times • January 25 - February 1, 2018 • www.newtimesslo.com

walls to keep him up at night, though the housemate never owned a power drill. “That part is just simply inaccurate,” Frye said. Perez’s trial is expected to last at least a month. Jurors will hear from a number of witnesses, including police investigators, a medical examiner, and a fellow housemate who allegedly heard the struggle take place and discovered Kienly’s body. In October 2017, Perez pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the charges against him. If he is found guilty, the trial will move into a second phase to determine if he was insane at the time he committed the crime. —Chris McGuinness

County drops Community Choice Energy effort

The city of San Luis Obispo is looking for partners on a new Community Choice Energy (CCE) program—which turns local governments into renewable energy procurers and electricity sellers—but it won’t be able to call SLO County. County supervisors voted 3-2 on Jan. 23 to abandon any further exploration of forming or joining a CCE. Supervisors John Peschong (1st District), Debbie Arnold (5th District), and Lynn Compton (4th District) voted against continuing CCE talks with either the city of SLO or Monterey Bay Community Power, expressing doubt about the potential for raising customer rates, taking on debt, and getting involved in “government-run” electricity. “The conclusion is I’m not convinced that having government-run electricity is really beneficial to my constituents,” Supervisor Arnold said. Nine CCE programs are currently in operation throughout the state, and eight more are in the process of launching.

Enabled by state legislation, a CCE allows a local region to make its own choices on energy investments and set customer rates equal to or less than investor-owned utilities like PG&E. Typically, a CCE’s goal is to invest in more renewable energy sources than private utilities. In 2016, SLO County participated in a tri-county CCE feasibility study with Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, which concluded that a regional CCE would be infeasible due to the overlap of PG&E and Southern California Edison territories. Another “pre-feasibility” study stated that forming a CCE within only PG&E territory on the Central Coast may be possible. In December, the SLO City Council voted unanimously to pursue forming a CCE with interested parties like the county, other local cities, and jurisdictions in Northern Santa Barbara County. Supervisors Bruce Gibson (2nd District) and Adam Hill (3rd District) both voted in favor of exploring a CCE and expressed “excitement” about the prospects of partnering with the city. “I respectfully disagree,” Peschong said. “I don’t see how going forward right now will not cost the ratepayers more money.” Gibson countered that the board didn’t have adequate information yet to draw that conclusion and questioned why the supervisors would reject further efforts to gather data. “What strikes me is the board majority seems intent on refusing to have our staff get more information,” Gibson said. “We’re turning our backs to our city colleagues. It all comes down to an ideological opposition to ‘government-run’ electricity.” Δ —Peter Johnson

BY KAREN GARCIA PHOTO COURTESY OF ANNA’S CIDER

A Ventura cider company burns in the Thomas Fire

A

nna and Dominic O’Reilly worked to get their business, Anna’s Cider, going last September but lost their facility, equipment, and first batch of hard cider in last December’s Thomas Fire. The Ojai couple is the first commercial hard cider producer in Ventura County. Dominic has a long background in winemaking. He got his start in the cellar of his family’s winery, Owen Roe, and later earned his way into a management position. He’s currently the winemaker for Topa Mountain Winery. Dominic’s experience inspired the couple to try their hand at crafting the apple beverage. Anna said that making cider is a similar process to wine because both methods involve using fermented fruit juice. Anna said she and her husband worked for a year to get a license and the required permits to produce cider in a shed in their backyard. Getting all the required paperwork was finalized in August, which is also the tail end of the apple season. Anna did her research to find organic and crisp tasting apples for their first batch. The couple had some difficulty finding enough apples for their experiment but SLO Creek Farms had enough produce for the first batch. “We went with SLO Creek Farms

because their apples are certified organic and they have such a fresh taste,” Anna said. Six hundred pounds of apples later, the couple had their first batch of cider in two flavors: dry and semi-dry. Armed with kegs, Anna and her husband tested out their first batch on visitors that attended The Core Pour Festival in downtown Santa Paula. “We were trying to see what people thought, and everyone was really positive about it. They said it was the first cider they’ve tried that actually tastes like apples,” she said. But the Thomas Fire raged through Ventura and Santa Barbra Counties beginning Dec. 4. Anna said her home was located near the starting point of the fire. “It’s hard to describe how we felt because we knew our road had been hit, but we just didn’t know anything about our house,” she said. After the evacuation was lifted in their neighborhood Anna said their house was still standing but their cider facility was gone. “We were grateful our home was spared, but our business that we had spent a year getting off the ground was gone,” Anna said.

STARTING OVER After losing the start of their cider business in the Thomas Fire, Anna O’Reilly and her husband are getting back on their feet.

To regain what was lost, Anna created an Indiegogo fundraiser page— similar to GoFundMe. She said it’s a way for the community to help the couple build another cider facility and purchase equipment. For those who give a minimum of $30, the couple plans to create a bottle label with a sketch or photo of the donor’s face on it. “I think it would be really neat to buy a six-pack and on each bottle there would be a different face on it. It’s a way for us

These are some serious nihilists. It’s zero-sum in their moral math, and the losers are everyone not on their side. There are more of us than them, but they have the power. Despite the terrible reality show we find ourselves trapped in, and despite the damage Republican chaos causes, there are still people on the left and in the center who fervently wish or directly demand that everyone just get along and be nice. These are wellintentioned wishes. Ideally, we would all be polite and thoughtful in our exchanges. But this is a fight now, no matter how lousy it sometimes feels. We are in a fight for the future of this country. If you don’t believe me, ask someone who is not white and well off. Ask someone who comes from a wiped-out people or someone who puts in hours for a living and lives month-to-month. Or ask anyone who saw the presidency of Barack Obama not simply as historic but as healing, as proof we had progressed beyond our worst urges. That seems now like fool’s gold. Our first black president, classy and cool, was followed into office by a man of tangerine tint who first taunted Obama with racist claims about his birthplace, and has since been testing

and pinching as many of the practices and customs of democracy as he can. Trump is impulsive and reckless in a way that has its subversive appeal. There’s a pretty big voting bloc out there that wants to see the whole damn political system blown up no matter what that looks like. They’re not wrong in wanting that. What is wrong is not fighting that. Power is grubby and dangerous, but at its best can be used effectively to help us move forward together. But when it’s used only to smash and grab and load the getaway cars of the greasiest pole-dancers, at the expense of everyone else, then we need to exercise the right to stop this, to restore some decency, and return us to the road forward. That’s what effective resistance has to do. It has to shove back hard on the moral regression that unfettered greed and selfishness cause. And it can’t happen without a raw slab of fierce opposition and unsettling challenges to the status quo. It can’t happen without fighting. Let’s remember that the Founding Fathers were not pushovers. Lincoln was not a warm, likable sweetheart. FDR taunted and embraced the hatred of the wealthy who opposed him despite his coming from that class. Rosa Parks didn’t become a legend and a symbol because of one day—she was a brave activist all her life. JFK, RFK, LBJ— HILL continued page 10

n the Jan. 18 New Times, Robert C. Cuddy wrote a lengthy opinion piece defending Adam Hill (“Time to speak out”) and castigating the public that spoke at the Jan. 9 San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors meeting. From the tone of Mr. Cuddy’s opinion piece, one would think that the people who spoke against Mr. Hill’s becoming head of the Board of Supervisors did so because they were against “the powerless people being manhandled” and that only Mr. Hill cares for the homeless, and that he has “a short temper” when it comes to this and other issues Mr. Hill is passionate about. Mr. Cuddy further stated that: “Hill’s opponents took time and taxpayer dollars last week to conduct their annual Hill Roast, mobilizing their ‘goons’ from around the county to insult the supervisor and those who elected him.” He further blamed Mike Brown and COLAB for orchestrating “a visceral personal attack on Hill, thus the nastiness toward his family, who should be off limits.” Where Mr. Cuddy obtained his information that those who spoke against Mr. Hill want to manhandle powerless people, he did not disclose in his piece. I attended that meeting and was one of the “goons” who spoke against Mr. Hill’s becoming the chair of the Board of Supervisors. Neither I nor any of the other 20 or so speakers mentioned anything about

or made any “attacks” on Mr. Hill’s positions regarding the homeless or the affordability of housing in this county. All comments were made regarding his suitability to head the Board of Supervisors in an adult, civil, and respectful manner. Those comments covered specifically how he treats the other supervisors with whom he does not agree and the taxpaying public for whom he shows great disdain. No comments were made regarding Mr. Hill’s family. While it is true that Mr. Hill holds a small majority in the 3rd District, he does not speak for all residents in his district and certainly does not speak for the entire population of the county. If Mr. Hill thinks he has a right to act in a manner that is disrespectful to those who live in the county simply because he is passionate and that he should be excused for his “short temper,” he is wrong. If Mr. Hill worked for any government agency as an employee or in private industry and treated co-workers and stakeholders in the same manner, he would be terminated. Mr. Cuddy seems to think that the taxpayers of this county have no right to use their public forum at the supervisors’ meetings and express their opinion. I suggest he needs a lesson in civics. It is our right and our duty to come forward, to make ROULEAU continued page 10

all could be, and had to be, at times, ruthless in the service of economic and racial justice. Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Bella Abzug, none of these figures shied away from confrontation and speaking the truth to power. Does this mean we are doomed to be forever divided? I don’t know. I do know that civility is meaningless in the face of these facts: The obscene concentration of wealth has worsened poverty; the destruction of the social safety net continues, as does the elimination of safeguards and rights for the most vulnerable; as does the exploitation of wage earners, the demolition of environmental protections, the discourse of deliberate lies and misinformation and rejection of facts; as does the corruption by money of decisionmakers at every level and in every branch of government—none of this will be stopped or reversed without fighting. We are in a troubling and precarious time, and no amount of feel-good boosterism or wistful wishing will get us through this. If you don’t have the stomach for the vitriol and ugliness of politics today, that is totally understandable. You can, as so many have for too long, simply turn away and tune out. Or you can try to elect the ice cream man. But that is a luxury of choice, a privilege, if you will. You may not have that freedom in the future without people fighting ferociously for it now. ∆ Supervisor Adam Hill represents SLO County’s 3rd District.

Mr. Cuddy was also critical of the way supervisors John Peschong, Lynn Compton, and Debbie Arnold are handling the marijuana issue. As he stated, marijuana is a major national, state, and local problem. It is also a dangerous drug that the federal government treats as an illegal drug. Mr. Hill and Supervisor Bruce Gibson would have this county become the marijuana headquarters of the state. Supervisors Peschong, Compton, and Arnold want to take a cautious approach to issuing permits to grow this product. By doing so, they are not “putting some people out of business and throwing their families’ lives into chaos.” Has Mr. Cuddy forgotten that until Jan. 1, 2018, it was illegal to grow this product in California? If controlling the growth of this product puts some people out of business, it is because they were in an illegal business to start with and did not qualify to grow it legally. Mr. Cuddy also asks, “... isn’t it about time the real majority in this county showed up at a Board of Supervisors meeting and demanded that this bought-and-paid-for trio do right by us.”

The hypocrisy of night access to open space

Last Tuesday, Jan. 16, the San Luis Obispo City Council voted 3-2 to open night biking on Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve. The policy of forbidding night biking on the mountain had been set into place by previous councils that understood the necessity of protecting wildlife from destructive activities in our natural reserves, and a petition gathered 830 signatures to keep these protections in place. Biologists explained that wildlife requires this rest period to feed and recover from human daytime activities. The fire chief stressed that injuries to firefighters are more prevalent during nighttime emergency rescues and will require the use of costly helicopters. Numerous articulate residents used wellresearched arguments to open the eyes of the council. On the other side, about a hundred bikers and friends of Mayor Heidi Harmon and councilmembers Dan Rivoire and Aaron Gomez bemoaned their inability to get to the mountain on time during the week because they worked, and claimed it was only “social justice” to let them disturb animals and nature so they could get their daily thrills on this particular mountain. Who won? The friends of Harmon, Rivoire, and Gomez. The decision of these three council members is disturbing because it points to two serious issues: 1) Their claim to care for the environment is fake. They only care about the environment as long as it benefits them personally. 2) They don’t understand our democratic principles.

the direction to take ought to be obvious, especially when the majority includes numerous specialists on the subject. We knew these new council members had neither the background nor the experience to be sitting on the council, but we hoped they would, at the very least, be willing to listen to the residents and try to learn. We were wrong. Instead, we have a group that, like our current president, acts like kids in a toy store and hands out candy to their buddies. This is not what we should see in San Luis Obispo.

Trump is missing compassion

I’d like to compliment Editor Camillia Lanham and reporter Karen Garcia on their well-written articles in the Jan. 11 New Times: Lanham’s Volunteers 2018 article, “Responding to Crisis,” and Garcia’s news article, “Grover Beach mother deported to Mexico.” The two articles may not seem related, but they both have the commonality of spotlighting neighbors supporting neighbors in times of crisis. And although unsaid, they also point to the dark side of President Trump’s petty and vindictive response to California for not adhering to his every dictate. In response to the disastrous Thomas Fire and the devastating flood and debris flows that took so many lives in Montecito, Trump gave not a word of condolence or any promise for compassionate help. In response to immigrants like mother Neofita Silva and her family, Trump

charged his Gestapo-like Immigration and Customs Enforcement to sweep California and deport every immigrant who failed to show the “official” papers, no matter how long they’ve lived here and no matter if they’re hardworking, honest, taxpaying folks with children born in the USA.

My jaw just dropped as I read Karen Garcia’s Get Out story “Hidden oasis” (Jan. 18) extolling the virtues of a visit to Montaña de Oro State Park. She “felt like a 10-year-old again searching for the smoothest rock to add to my collection,” she revealed. Well, the reason “this place is a veritable gold mine” for rock collectors is because all features are protected. This is a state park, for everyone to enjoy visiting, then leave all rocks, shells, plants, and creatures where we find them and go home empty-handed but full of great memories and photos.

Rhetoric&Reason

Offshore omen

W

hat accounts for our inability to learn from the past? Why do we thoughtlessly invest in shortterm projects that imperil ecosystems, species, and the planet? Is it lack of imagination? Systemic inertia? Simple greed? The most recent shortsighted, dangerous, and greedy plan by the Trump administration is to allow drilling by oil and gas companies in 90 percent of the nation’s offshore waters, including all areas of California’s coast that have been protected since 1984. According the San Francisco Chronicle, the plan “could open up several spots that oil companies have long coveted, including waters off La Jolla in San Diego County, Malibu near Los Angeles, and Cambria in San Luis Obispo County” (Jan. 5). Cambria. We’ll get back to Cambria; meanwhile, let’s talk about imagination and history. In 1989, writer Holly Hughes watched horrified as footage of the Exxon Valdez oil spill played on the news. The ruptured supertanker spilled 11 million gallons of crude, which spread across 1,300 miles of pristine Alaskan shoreline. Having spent several seasons running tenders for the Alaskan herring fishery and skippering charter boats in Prince William Sound, Hughes knew the waters.

“I couldn’t watch,” she said. “I had to go.” She signed on as captain of a medic boat. The scene at the beach was “surreal” she recalled. “A small city of volunteers in rain gear was literally trying to clean the shore with fire hoses, which only sent the oil back into the ocean. In between responding to medical calls, we scooped up oiled seabirds in a net and ran them to the rescue center in Seward. “The birds would try to clean themselves, which resulted in them ingesting the oil. Many animals died of hypothermia because once their feathers or fur are coated, they lose their insulation. “I remember seeing the eye of a loon peering through a sheen of Alaskan crude. It was heartbreaking; I’ll never let go of those images.” The Exxon Valdez spill resulted in the death of an estimated 250,000 seabirds, 2,800 otters, 300 seals, 250 bald eagles, approximately 22 killer whales, and billions of salmon and herring eggs. The fishing industry never fully recovered because of long-term, possibly permanent damage to habitat and species. Now, almost 30 years later, pools of oil remain just inches below beach sands. Images of the Exxon Valdez spill were indeed haunting but not unfamiliar to Californians. In January 1969, a Union Oil

ANNUAL LIQUIDATION SALE and MUCH MORE!

well off Summerland blew out, releasing an estimated total of 4.2 gallons of oil that covered 800 square miles of the Pacific Ocean. The event was among the largest environmental disasters in U.S history. I don’t have the space to detail more recent spills, including the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the largest marine oil spill in Earth’s history. Or, closer to home, the ruptured pipeline near Rufugio State Beach that spilled more than 100,000 gallons of crude in 2015. Truth is, the Trump administration is so in cahoots with oil companies and tycoons that they willfully ignore the history of oil-and-water disasters. And their greed is such that they not only relish the vision of oil derricks lined shoulder-to-shoulder, they also reversed safety measures implemented to prevent another Deepwater Horizon disaster. Remember, 11 men died during that BP platform explosion. Back to Cambria. Let’s imagine what the future holds if Trump, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and their oil cronies hold sway. Implications for our local fishing industry are grim. Fisherman’s wife Lori French said: “Our sons and nephews are third generation commercial fishermen on the Central Coast, and we’re opposed to anything that harms the oceans or restricts our fishing areas.” Likewise, Jeremiah O’Brien, a director of the Morro Bay Commercial Fishermen’s Organization and owner of The Aguero

fishing vessel, said: “Our job is to feed the people, but we’re losing significant portions of territory. In 2015-16, we contributed $16 million in earnings to the local economy, but if offshore windmills and oil derricks are built, we might as well go home because there’s wouldn’t be enough room on the ocean to fish.” O’Brien noted that any spill triggers a dramatic drop in the market because consumers immediately fear tainted seafood, while long-term ecological damage affects all fisheries. Cal Poly oceanography professor Ryan Walter also explained that if a spill occurred off of Cambria, there’s no predicting with certainty where oil would land. “The ocean doesn’t flow downstream like a river; rather, surface and underwater ocean currents are constantly changing in both space and time,” he said. Which means we can only respond to oil spills after the fact, after beaches are mutilated and sea life turns up dead. But we can imagine oil coating Moonstone Beach. We can imagine the songs of dead, dying, and extinct birds, as does Hughes in her moving book Passings. The name of O’Brien’s boat means “omen” in English. Let us, then, take these omens, science, and history to heart: Our oceans should be off-limits to short-sighted looting and greed. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action.

The Shredder

Crazytown

D

id you hear Grover Beach resident and alleged roommate slayer Manuel Jesus Perez, 43, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to stabbing his roommate to death before setting his body afire? Apparently Perez, his victim, and two other roommates rented rooms in a worse-than-Haiti shithole flophouse where many residents were current or recovered drug addicts. Perez, who claims his roommate had been harassing him mercilessly, was allegedly smoking meth and waiting for the victim to wake up to confront him about the teasing, and when he did, things got real stabby real fast. Even though he bought lighter fluid in advance and zip-tied two steak knives together, Perez’s lawyer claims it wasn’t premeditated. Would this have happened if the county had a residential detox and treatment facility? It sounds like Perez sure could have used one! Where’s the help for people like Perez and his roomies? According to a press release by the SLO County Health Agency, “There are approximately 22,300 to 27,100 adults (about 10 percent of adults) with substance use disorder issues in SLO County.” One in 10! The agency also noted that there are only five beds covered by Medi-Cal in the county … except they aren’t for just anyone. They’re in Bryan’s House in

Paso Robles, which provides care solely to pregnant women or women with children. I guess that means if you’re a indigent male meth-head living in a Grover Beach shithole with other druggies, there are zero detox beds. Let’s face it: If you’re a drug addict, mentally ill, or both, our county has one place for you, and it’s called the SLO County Jail, which is apparently an easy place to die. On Jan. 1, more than 100 supporters gathered outside the jail to honor the one-year anniversary of the death of Andrew Holland, a mentally ill 36-year-old who died of an embolism after spending nearly two days strapped naked and largely ignored in a restraint chair. All told, Holland is one of 12 people to have died in jail custody since 2012, which is way above the national average. The exciting news is that the SLO County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to build a detox and treatment center at 40 Prado Rd., where the county’s new regional homeless campus is being built. Yay! Way to go! Did I mention the new detox facility will have 10 beds. Ten. Yes, doing something is better than doing nothing. No, this effort does not go far enough. But, at least the supes agreed

on something, right? Well, sort of. Liberal 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill worried about the “operating costs” of the detox center and labeled himself and fellow liberal board member, 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson, as the board’s “fiscal conservatives.” As far as I can tell that was Hill’s swipe at the other three members of the board—the supposed politically affiliated fiscal conservatives— for not worrying about the costs. Then he moved onto CAPSLO (Community Action Partnership of SLO County), which will house the new detox facility, over how it checks individuals into its homeless shelter. And since CAPSLO won’t be running the detox center, the comments made no sense! It feels like every fight is personal for Hill, even when everyone agrees. Hill used to be a big supporter of CAPSLO when his wife Dee Torres ran it, but because she was demoted in what she alleged was retaliation for whistleblowing (she no longer works there), he seems to feel that any excuse to blow his whistle is a good excuse. Even if it seems pretty damn clear SLO County Mental Health can’t keep up with detox demand. I know one would assume since San Luis Obispo is the happiest place in America such facilities wouldn’t be necessary, but they are. SLO Town is even now planning for “crazy” terrorists to attack the Thursday night Farmers’ Market. “You see too many examples of one crazy person,” SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon said in regard to the city’s plan to install street bollards to protect the downtown Farmers’ Market from vehicle attacks, to

which Facebooker and politically correct word-Nazi Miriam Budderfly MackayGill said, “That’s some pretty ableist (sic) language. You owe your constituents with mental illness an apology.” Good grief! Um, it’s not like Harmon argued that all mentally ill are violent, only that someone would have to be insane to drive a car into a crowd of people which … yeah! Anyway, the city is working on a $1.2 million plan to install the … wait a minute! What in the actual hell? Hey city of SLO, you have unmet pension obligations, you’re about to lose PG&E’s Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plantfunded hot cash injection, and you want to drop a million-plus smackaroos on street bollards? Just how likely is this potential attack? Talk about crazy! You know what’s really absurd? The racist flyers found posted around Cal Poly that attempt to blame AfricanAmericans for the racism they suffer! “FACT: 28 percent of black males go to jail, vs. 4.4 percent white males.” Interesting! I wonder if that has anything to do with black communities being more policed than white communities, or if it has anything to do with America’s systemic racism, which impoverishes black communities and increases black unemployment? Victim blaming, ain’t it grand! ∆ The Shredder is in the top 10 percent! Send ideas and comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

ow level electrical impulses push through layers of facial skin at A Beautiful Face Salon in Templeton. It sounds like torture, but really it’s just an electrical facial—and salon owner Linda Davis said the impulses mimic those currents produced by the human body. Called microcurrent treatment, two white wands with metallic tips work to lift, firm, and tone the muscles beneath the epidermis in an attempt to fight against the signs of aging. Davis uses tempered glass filled with argon gas to deliver another high-tech facial. It glows purple-pink over a face covered in thin gauze. The setup is designed to increase circulation and reduce belmishes and acne. Clients seek out facial treatments for a variety of reasons, whether they’re looking to treat serious skin conditions such as rosacea or acne, brighten their skin and reduce dry spots, or turn the tables altogether on Father Time. And the treatments that target those conditions are countless—from techy ultrasonic machines to enzyme therapy, the quest for perfect skin unfolds as one of the ultimate races against the clock.

Alana Silva, a professional aesthetician based in Santa Maria, said customization is the key to a good skin care regimen. An aesthetician’s role is primarily to isolate and identify individual issues in a client’s skin and help formulate the correct treatment, both in a salon and at home. Skin care specialists first consult with clients before jumping into treatments, asking questions about daily habits and other topics. “The first thing that I do is start with a very thorough consultation,” Silva said. “We go over skin care products that they are using, any medications that they are on, their diet, exercise regimen, or any allergies they might have. We just review anything that might have an impact on their skin.” Common complaints among clients include dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (a condition that results in dark patches of skin from an excess of melanin), age spots, and acne. Silva said clients can have any combination of one or more of these conditions. “Each person is an individual, and their skin should be treated that way,” Silva said. “So even if I’m doing something like a microdermabrasion, everything is customized from that point from their cleanser, their moisturizer, even the mask that I use afterward. Even though you are getting a set treatment, it’s still customized for your skin and condition.” Microdermabrasion and chemical exfoliation are options Silva uses to treat signs of aging such as hyperpigmentation or age spots (brown spots that appear like

freckles), a top complaint among many of her clients. Microdermabrasion requires a high-powered tool that sprays the skin with crystals that penetrate the first layer of skin. “Microdermabrasion is a form of exfoliation,” Silva explained. “It’s a resurfacing treatment using a machine; the one that I use has a diamond-tipped wand. It is used to gently resurface the top layer of skin to remove the dead skin cells, so the result afterwards is bright, glowing skin.” Treatments can cost up to $150 per visit, depending on the salon and add-on services. Silva, whose microdermabrasion sessions start at $75, said the key is building up a routine to maintain healthy skin. “Anything that you choose to do to treat your skin is best to do as a series,” Silva said. “Whether it’s a series of three or six treatments, the more you do the better results you’re going to have.”

Peels

Another popular treatment for combating signs of aging is the chemical peel. With a peel, a chemical solution exfoliates the top layer of skin, which then peels off, allowing new skin to grow. As it grows back and regenerates, the new skin is typically smoother in appearance and has fewer wrinkles. The immediate results of a peel, depending on the strength of the product, can leave skin bright and red, almost blistered looking. But some aestheticians say it’s not always SKIN continued page 16

SKIN from page 14

necessary to endure such extreme treatment to get positive outcomes. Mallica Roberts, with Mallica’s Natural Beauty in Orcutt, said she sees many clients concerned with signs of aging who opt for the peels she offers. “As you get older, things slow down,” Roberts said. “You don’t produce as much hyaluronic acid, your skin is not shedding as much as it used to, so you need that step that’s going to penetrate on a deeper layer. Not a lot of people have been preventative in their early 20s. So they’re coming to me looking to do something to correct what they don’t like.” Roberts offers a peel that uses a glycolic and lactic acid formulation. Glycolic acid removes the outermost layer of skin and is frequently used to treat scars and other types of skin discoloration. Her salon also offers a salicylic gel peel, ideal for treating congested skin and acne. Roberts said her treatments and the products she uses help stimulate collagen production and treat fine

lines and wrinkles, but they don’t turn clients into the beet-red-faced beauty victims seen in sitcoms and movies. “I don’t do anything that requires a lot of downtime,” she said. “My peels are maintenance peels. They’re good to do before an event or something like that.” She said that while the services aestheticians such as herself offer are not like what dermatologists provide, they do complement medical treatments and serve as a good way to maintain skin care after plastic surgery or procedures such as Botox. “What a dermatologist can do is more aggressive and faster,” Roberts said. “But if you’re not on a whole regimen, your skin is just going to go back to what it was. My services are good maintenance for in between those treatments.” Tori Simons is an aesthetician who works in Solvang, and she bases her recommendations for clients’ treatments on the time they have available (30, 60, or 90 minute facials) as well as their skin type and what their goals are. She said peels are a vital treatment that can show immediate results. “An enzyme peel is like an exfoliator,” Simons said. “It goes a little further than a scrub. You don’t have to stay out of the sun afterwards. It’s something that just gets the first layer of the skin. The glycolic peel is more in depth. You have to manage and treat that after you leave. You don’t want to be in the sun for about 48 hours afterwards. It hits those lower levels of the skin.”

Skinemies

PINK PRETTY You can tackle acne and blemishes by getting a high frequency treatment with argon gas at A Beautiful Face in Templeton.

While combating the signs of aging is an issue for many clients, a lot of local aestheticians stay busy treating younger people who want to curtail acne or start on a healthy skin care regimen. Aestheticians all stress that the No. 1 thing people should do when starting a program is protect their skin from the sun. Silva and other aestheticians point to sun damage as the No. 1 culprit in skin damage that leads to expensive treatments. “Most young people aren’t really aware that they need

to use sunscreen,” Silva said. “The sunscreen that’s in your makeup just isn’t enough. Most people don’t know that you have to do things like apply your sunscreen 30 minutes before you go out in the sun and reapply it if you’re going to be out more than a few hours for it to be truly effective either.” But it’s not just the sun that can cause serious damage. Human skin has a number of enemies, including toxic elements in the environment and allergens. Aestheticians also point to a lack of proper hydration as one of the major cause of skin problems clients complain about. The biggest mistake people make when it comes to their skin care is simply not drinking enough water, Simons said. “I don’t think people realize how much it can change your skin,” she said. “Drinking more water seems like such a simple step, but it really can make a difference.” Dry skin can often appear sallow, resulting in flaky patches that never seem quenched by typical moisturizers. Pores look small, almost invisible, and fine lines become much more visible. “The very first thing I do is I put you on my table and I do a hydration test,” said A Beautiful Face owner Davis. “I feel your skin. All I really need to do is feel your skin to know what’s going on. But then I would talk to you about what your concerns are. Because what I see might not be what you want to work on.” Davis said dehydration is the No. 1 issue in a lot of the cases she treats at her salon. Without enough water in the skin, it cannot function properly, resulting in myriad issues that show up in the mirror. “That’s when you start to get congestion, breakouts, blackheads, hyperpigmentation, things like that,” she said. “All of these negative conditions of the skin really are a direct result of not having enough free water levels in the tissue. That’s one of the things I really work on restoring in my treatments.”

In your hands

If chemical peels and diamond-tipped mini-sandblasters are too intimidating, facial specialists say there are plenty of other ways to get into the habit of proper skin maintenance. Simons also offers facials such as “The New Yorker,” a basic cleansing, exfoliation, and hydrating treatment that lasts 30 minutes. There’s also

“The Parisian,” which takes up to 60 minutes and includes extractions, a specialty mask, and a facial massage. Simons’ deep exfoliation facial lasts 90 minutes and comes with a hydrating eye treatment, full skin analyzation, and solar protection for each client. She said one of the most important things she does for her clients is to teach them to maintain her treatments on their own. “You’re always aging,” Simons said. “I think having a good skin regimen at home is really important in dealing with that long term. You might only come in here to the salon once a month, but you see your skin at home every single day. If you have good products at home and are consistent about how you take care of it, that’s extremely helpful.” Simons advises clients to stick with something basic at home that highlights what many specialists refer to as the holy trinity of skin care procedures: cleanse, tone, and moisturize. “I think the first thing is to do an easy three-step system,” Simons said. “Sometimes it gets over complicated, and then people quit and don’t want to do it anymore. A simple cleanse-tonemoisturize system, something easy and basic, can keep people consistent to start with. If they see results then they can move into the serums and peels and other things like that.” But be careful what kind of products you buy, Simons said. Many over-thecounter products have fillers in them that only serve to extend shelf life and have little benefit to consumers. Simons also said products that are older than a year don’t belong on your face—they belong in the trash. “Don’t keep it in your drawer,” she said. “Just get rid of it.” Whether it’s aging or hydration that plagues someone’s skin, one of the most important factors to combating problematic skin issues is perseverance. Develop a plan and stick to it, Davis advised. “If you’re willing to put in the commitment, such as having professional treatments, as well as using professional products and a real rigid regimen at home, you’ll have amazing changes,” Davis said. “You will see the results you’re looking for.” Δ Contact Sun Arts and Lifestyle Writer Rebecca Rose at rrose@ santamariasun.com.

Dieting trends for 2018

BY CHRIS MCGUINNESS

MELTING AWAY THE POUNDS Break out the fresh veggies. A new year means a new wave of diets, some less conventional than others.

I

t’s January, which means many of us who spent 2017 glowering over our beer bellies at the growing number on the bathroom scale are trying to keep our New Year’s resolutions to shed a few pounds and get back in shape. In 2018, dieting trends range from the sensible to the downright bizarre (bugs, anyone?) and have attracted true-blue believers as well as skeptical critics. In the end, it’s up to you to choose what might work for you, so let’s take a look at the buffet of options that claim they’ll keep you away from the actual buffet in the new year.

The DASH Diet

One of the most popular diets continues to be the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, or DASH diet. As its name indicates, DASH has its origins as a diet designed to help battle growing rates of heart- and blood pressure-related conditions. The diet was actually developed through research by the National Institutes of Health with the aim of creating a “flexible and balanced eating plan that helps create a heart-healthy eating style for life.” DASH doesn’t necessarily restrict or mandate any specific foods. Instead, it lays out a series of daily and weekly nutritional goals based on food group types and servings. The popularity of the diet, which touts itself as more of a long-term lifestyle change than a fad or craze, has expanded beyond people looking to manage their high cholesterol or hypertension. In January, U.S. News and World Report ranked DASH as “best overall diet” for the eighth year in a row.

Weight Watchers

An oldie but a goodie, Weight Watchers has been around for more than 50 years and is currently the go-to program for more than 1.1 million active members looking to find their slimmer selves. The company kicked off 2018 by rolling out its newest weight loss plan, called WW Freestyle. The new plan is based on its previous SmartPoints system, which assigned points to various foods and a specific budgeted amount of points participants must stick to in order to meet their weight loss goals. The new system still uses points but now includes a category of more than 200 “zero points” foods and boasts “rollover” points, which can be transferred to another day to keep the program “flexible and livable.” Unlike other diets, however, people looking to participate in Weight Watchers will have to pony up some cash. According to the company’s website, that could run you between $3.07 to $8.46 per week, depending on the type of bells and whistles you want.

The marijuana diet

It wouldn’t be a New Times story if we didn’t mention pot, would it? With recreational marijuana now legal in California, health-conscious stoners across the state will likely be flocking to pick up a copy of author Art Glass’ 2013 book, The Marijuana Diet. Glass claims that that there’s solid science behind the marijuana diet and says his book includes more than 100 testimonials of people who lost between 20 and 100 pounds. “In fact, it might be the best and simplest solution that there is for fast and permanent weight loss,” Glass writes. Based on the book’s chapters, the diet stresses healthy eating, juice and detox cleanses, and some intermittent fasting. The book also includes a handy chapter titled, “How to handle the munchies.” Obviously, this diet doesn’t have any rave reviews from U.S. News and World Report or the stamp of approval from the Mayo Clinic, so dieters beware. The diet has its critics, including those who question the science behind it, but that’s just, like, their opinion, man.

The insect diet

The truly adventurous dieter may want to make 2018 the year they dive headfirst into entomophagy, a fancy term that simply means “eating bugs.” Yes bugs. Worms, crickets, ants, and even larvae and eggs. While the prospect may seem stomach churning to many Americans, some 2 billion people all around the world already include insects as part of their regular diets, according to a 2013 report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. The report states that insects not only have “exceptional nutritional benefits,” but could even be farmed on a mass scale to feed the earth’s growing population and cut down on waste and environmental degradation caused by meat production. While there’s no set bug diet, an American student named Carmen Brantly-Rios spent 30 days in 2015 eating an insect-based diet, which included dishes like “mealworm fried rice,” “bug burgers with cheese,” and “Creole crickets.” Brantly-Rios didn’t say if he lost any weight, but it’s probably safe to assume it’s possible to accomplish if one subbed out Big Macs for bug burgers (hold the cheese just to be safe). While it seems out there and the weight loss potential is iffy, who wouldn’t want to be the first bug diet weight loss success story? Δ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness hasn’t eaten any bugs … yet.

y own daily beauty routine is admittedly minimalistic. Still, I feel a twinge of envy when friends in the LA area talk about the latest hair, makeup, or skin service to hit their neighborhood. San Luis Obispo has a salon on nearly every corner downtown, yet it can take a while for other trending beauty services to trickle into town. Read on to find out about a new way to remove body hair that involves less skin irritation and fewer ingrown hairs, the one-stop shop for a glamorous up-do or Instagram-worthy braid, and how to get your lashes a little longer and your brows perpetually defined.

Sugaring

PHOTO COURTESY OF SLO BLOWOUT BAR

Masha Schroeder, a local aesthetician at the Skin Boutique in SLO, was at a loss for what to do for her friend, whose sensitive skin couldn’t cope with being waxed—it would stay red and inflamed for days afterward. “Every time she would wax, she would have extreme irritation so we were trying to find alternatives,” Schroeder said. That’s how Schroeder came to find sugaring, a hair removal process that uses a sugar paste, typically made of organic sugar, water, and citric acid, that’s used to strip hair from the body. About a year and a half ago, Schroeder offered to try this sugaring method on her friend and the results were like day and night compared to waxing. “It was really amazing,” Schroeder

said, noting that her friend’s skin wasn’t irritated by the sugaring. And when she tried it on herself, Schroeder happily realized it hurt way less than waxing, and her skin wasn’t sensitive for days after. “I thought, ‘Well, I’m never going to wax again,’” Schroeder said. While sugaring can sometimes take longer than waxing, it’s gentler on the skin and easier to clean up. It’s so popular that Schroeder now only does sugaring for hair removal on clients. Rates range from $12 for the upper lip area to $70 for a full Brazilian bikini wax. “For people who want to go more natural and have less sensitivities, that’s the perfect treatment,” Schroeder said.

Dry styling

Who among us hasn’t thought, “I can style my own hair,” and then suddenly you’re the bridesmaid with limp curls before the reception has even started? Yup. That’s where SLO Blowout Bar comes in. The salon that does everything except cuts and color opened up downtown about two years ago and is the first of its kind in the area. Dolly Bhatia said she and her sisters (whom she co-owns the business with) knew a blowout bar would do well in SLO since it’s such a popular wedding destination. “It was something that wasn’t here even though there’s a million salons in SLO, and there’s definitely a need for it,” Bhatia said. According to Bhatia, their services are cheaper and faster than a traditional salon, with clients getting in and out in an hour and paying anywhere from $35 for a blowout to $80 for a more complicated up-do. Bhatia said they also offer braiding and makeup services COOL ’DO SLO Blowout Bar offers services like and will work onsite for blowouts, formal up dos, loose curls, and fancy braids. weddings.

At the moment, Bhatia said their Beach Goddess style, a messy, tousled look; fishtail and Dutch braids; and a basic blowout are all popular styles among clients who come in for anything from weddings, to sorority formals, to a spruce-up for their everyday look. Even if you’re not sure what look you’re going for, Bhatia is confident you’ll walk away looking good. “We’ll recommend something, we’ll show you pictures, but we’ll make sure you leave happy,” she said.

Lash extensions and eyebrow tattoos

While once just making sure you had two eyebrows rather than the dreaded, fuzzy uni-brow was all it took to beautify the hair above your eyes, the world of brow care is now a dramatically more complicated place, with retailers like Sephora devoting an entire rack to various products designed to fill in and line your eyebrows. It’s a lot of time and work. And if you’re not good at drawing, you’re kind of screwed. Kristen Kundrat, owner of Wink Lash + Brow Bar, and busy mom knows all this. That’s why she only has one or two appointments a year to maintain her eyebrows. What sorcery is this? It’s called microblading. PHOTO COURTESY OF WINK LASH + BROW BAR

HEALTH

FILLING IN If shaping and filling in your own brows seems too overwhelming, Wink Lash + Brow Bar offers micro-blading, which lines and fills in the eyebrows with a semi-permanent tattoo.

POUR A LITTLE SUGAR ON ME Masha Schroeder, of The Skin Boutique in SLO, holds a ball of sugar paste that is used to remove body hair in lieu of hot, painful wax.

“It’s a semi-permanent way to alter the shape of your brows,” said Kundrat, who opened SLO’s only salon that focuses just on eyebrows and eyelashes about two years ago. Essentially it’s a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo. A bunch of tiny needles are lined up to look like a blade and pierce the skin with pigment, achieving the look of lining and filling in eyebrows. Kundrat said the effects of microblading last about a year, and most clients will come in once or twice during that time for maintenance. The first appointment costs $250 and touch-ups are $150. Kundrat said the service is for “anyone who just really wants to simplify their morning routine. I’m the mom of two young girls, and it just makes my day so much easier.” Wink Lash + Brow Bar’s other specialty is eyelash extensions, specifically the volume method, which offers clients more options for how full they want their eyelashes to be. They cost $200 for a set and touch-up appointments range from $100 to $120. “You get more plush and dimension and drama,” Kundrat said. “We can potentially double the amount of lashes you have.” Δ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley is ready for a spa weekend at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

athe yourself in milk and honey, scrub yourself with sea salt, and throw some aloe vera and rose water on that pretty face of yours if you want to achieve the beauty of Cleopatra. Rumor has it the Egyptian queen was obsessed with maintaining her youthful skin, creating her own regimens and products with what was available at the time. No preservatives. No chemicals. Just a whole lot of natural (and probably organic) ingredients. Rose, myrrh, frankincense, neroli (orange blossom), sandalwood, almond: These essential oils have been used for centuries to beautify, tighten, tone, and clarify the skin—and they smell good, too. Poppy Rhys, owner of the Morro Baybased beauty company Poppy Products, said she loves it when you can trace a name back to ancient times. She points out helichrysum as an example. Lauded for its restorative and hydrating properties, the little yellow flower that’s native to the Mediterranean also goes by names like “everlasting” and “immortelle.” Rhys named her antiaging serum Immortelle in homage to the flower’s essential oil, which is one of its key ingredients alongside argan, frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh,

lavender, and jasmine essential oils. “These herbs are ancient, holy herbs,” Rhys said. “They’ve been considered as precious as gold for a long time.” Yes, everyone, society’s quest for youth is an ancient tradition that continues today, only the ingredients have changed. And those ingredients don’t necessarily make it to the label of that facial moisturizer you picked up at the drug store. The Food and Drug Administration doesn’t regulate the cosmetics industry, either. So you never really know what you’re putting on your skin—the largest organ on the human body, Rhys noted. That’s one of the reasons Rhys started crafting her own cosmetic concoctions. She’s mixed oils for beauty since she was 15 years old, when she started selling homemade rosewater on the side of the PHOTO BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

road in her hometown of Cayucos. As she got older, she followed her passion into dermatology before eventually studying with an apothecarist in Switzerland and taking the path to becoming an aesthetician, giving facials for a local spa before opening her own place. However, she didn’t like the chemicals she was using to cleanse, exfoliate, and invigorate people’s faces. “When I first started doing facials, I got chemical conjunctivitis in one of my eyes,” she said. “I was doing eight facials a day and seeing what it was doing for skin.” Then, while attending the University of Aesthetics in Los Angeles (and driving down there three days a week with a 1-year-old at home), she started to really understand the chemistry that went into creating a product formula. She purchased a bottle of “organic,” “all natural” shea butter baby lotion for her daughter and looked over the ingredient list, thinking to herself that there was no way that the lotion would have a long shelf life with what was noted on the label. “You look at this ingredient list and think, ‘There’s no way this is stable,’” she said. “It’s like a fantasy ingredient list.” So she called the company and talked them into letting her speak with the chemist, who gave her the name of the

chemical that didn’t make the list. “I was just protective of my first daughter, and I didn’t want to be rubbing this chemical all over her baby skin,” Rhys said. The kitchen became her lab, and she began to mix and match. It took a lot of trial and error, she said, but eventually she pushed out all of the products that were on her spa’s shelves and stocked them with her creations, using them in the facials she gave. Her customers started asking to purchase bottles and take them home. And about three years ago, she switched gears, focusing completely on selling and making Poppy beauty products. She sources as locally, organically, and sustainably as possible, utilizing local community kitchens to make Poppy Youth Serum ($29.95), Immortelle ($35.95), baby lotion ($22.79), baby oil ($10.79), and Crème Lift ($35.95). Rhys said they try it make everything fresh and get it on store shelves within the week. And the ingredient list is definitely not a fantasy.

Artifacts Tell me a love story BY RYAH COOLEY

Once upon a time

Everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s a comedy or a tragedy, learn the art and craft of this human tradition at the Story-Telling Workshop with Jack Davis on Jan. 27. The event will be hosted by Central Coast Comedy Theater as part of the first ever SLO Coast Comedy Festival and held at Ignite Movement Studio in Morro Bay from 10 a.m. to noon. In this workshop, participants will focus on discovering emotions, using descriptive language, and other techniques to bring their stories to life. Tickets are $25 per person. Visit eventbrite.com for tickets and centralcoastcomedytheater. com for more information on festival events.

A lack of faith

What happens when a community is charged with judging one of its own for a nearly impossible-to-prove crime? The SLO Repertory Theatre presents one scenario in its staged reading of New Jerusalem, showing Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. and Feb. 3 at 2 and 7 p.m. Baruch de Spinoza is a young merchant and the heir of Saul Mortera, the chief rabbi of Amsterdam. But Amsterdam’s Sephardic Jews have made a fatal arrangement with the city: They have agreed to police their own community for unorthodox beliefs. When the city accuses Spinoza of atheism, Mortera must summon Baruch to the synagogue to defend himself. Spinoza’s best friend, his sister, and the woman he loves are all drawn into the controversy, a historical event that shook up not only the entire Jewish community of Amsterdam, but changed Spinoza’s and Mortera’s lives—and all of Western thought—irrevocably. Tickets are $15 per person. Visit slorep.org for more information.

Ink and letters

If your own chicken scratch handwriting bears a closer resemblance to a doctor’s hastily written prescription than a work of art, consider attending the Intro to Modern Calligraphy Workshop on Feb 3. Held at The Wedding Space in SLO from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the event will be taught by professional calligrapher Raina Toy-Smith, owner and creative of Fête & Quill. Toy-Smith will introduce participants to the modern calligraphy art form and provide students with top quality materials, detailed handouts, and practice sheets—and lots of fun calligraphy tools and goodies. Tickets are $102.35 per person. Visit the Intro to Modern Calligraphy event page on Facebook for more information. ∆ —Ryah Cooley

First ever Cambria Film Festival focuses on romance in movies

PHOTO COURTESY OF SHILPA KRISHNAN

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY Filmmaker Shilpa Krishnan’s movie, There’s Always Tomorrow, centers on two former lovers who reconnect years later while traveling in Abu Dhabi.

A

lan Fraser knows a thing or two about love. After all he’s listened to and recorded hundreds of couples’ love stories out of an airstream in Cambria over the past few years. The Love Story Project, launched with Alan’s wife, Shari, shares space with the couple’s gift shop, which features all things heart shaped. So it came as no surprise when Fraser, a wedding photographer, writer, and filmmaker familiar with the film festival circuit, started thinking about bringing love stories to the small seaside hamlet of Cambria in a different, bigger way: through a film festival celebrating movies about romance, happily ever afters, and all the foibles that occur on the quest to find true love. “It made a lot of sense,” Fraser said. “It seemed like a great way to bring people to Cambria and give filmmakers a chance to screen a film.” So from Feb. 8 to 11, the weekend before Valentine’s Day, Fraser, in conjunction with partners like the Cambria Center for the Arts, the Pewter Plough Playhouse, and even Hearst Castle, will bring viewers the first ever Cambria Film Festival, featuring classics like Harold and Maude and Going Hollywood alongside contemporary feature-length and short films taking a crack at what it really means to love someone. As far as Fraser knows, this is the only film festival of its kind to focus just on love stories and romantic comedies. It’s a niche, narrow focus, particularly for a genre that is wont to be slammed by film critics. “We sort of created it with the idea of Cambria being a romantic getaway, a place to come and escape,” Fraser said. “So we wanted to work within that notion.” Viewers will be pleased to find that the festival offerings extend beyond the typical “boy meets girl, pursues her relentlessly, and

wears her down” narrative. Take for instance filmmaker Shilpa Krishnan’s film, There’s Always Tomorrow. Set in Abu Dhabi, the premise centers on two former lovers, Anthony and Magda, who reconnect when they run into each other while traveling. But there’s a catch. “As I started to think of stories around two people, a man and woman, I began to wonder what would happen if two ex-lovers meet after a long time,” Krishnan, who is based in Singapore, said via email. “Most films when exploring a similar thread, tend to show either one or both being unhappy with their current partner. But I wanted to explore what could happen if both of them were perfectly happy with their current partners? What if there is no leftover negativity between them? Then how will such a chance meeting work out?” While nobody falls dramatically in or out of love in There’s Always Tomorrow, Krishnan’s

HOMETOWN HERO Upon returning to her hometown, Rose Miller (Tara Samuel, right) sets out to make a movie musical and in doing so falls in love with cameraman James Hansen (Troy Kotsur), and reconnects with her mother and the place where she grew up.

Happily ever after

The Cambria Film Festival will run Feb. 8 to 11 with screenings and events at the Cambria Center for the Arts, the Pewter Plough Playhouse, and Hearst Castle. Prices range from $8 for a single screening to $75 for a festival pass. An opening night reception will be held Feb. 8 at the Cambria Center for the Arts at 6 p.m. (followed by a screening of Harold & Lillian at 7 p.m.) for $15 per person, and a closing champagne gala will be held at Hearst Castle Feb. 11 at 6 p.m. (followed by a screening of Going Hollywood at 7 p.m.) for $25 per person. Visit cambriafilmfestival.com for more information.

twist takes a conventional narrative and gives it depth and nuance. In a similar fashion, Deborah Norman’s film, Wild Prairie Rose, set in the 1950s, takes a woman, Rose Miller, who was only too happy to leave her ho-hum small hometown and lands her right back there. Instead of just finding romantic love, Rose also reconnects with her mother and community as she tries to make her own movie musical in a town that’s lacking a movie theater. “The film is also about learning to communicate through a variety of barriers, some self-imposed, others the result of external obstacles,” Norman, who is currently in Berlin, said via email. “It [love] can come in all shapes between lovers, parents and children, and/or acts of kindness within communities as a whole. Discovering the true meaning of love comes at any point in life. It changes and transforms as we move through life, but for it to manifest in any significant way, one must be willing to listen with their hearts and have open minds.” And regardless of what your relationship status might be this Feb. 14, who doesn’t love a good love story? “It’s a positive thing,” Fraser said. “It’s something that we all have in common. It’s familiar and we all understand it.” ∆ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley’s favorite romantic comedy is When Harry Met Sally. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

n the back left corner of an RV Park in Arroyo Grande stands a hulking, industrial steel box of a building. It doesn’t look like much, but inside, woodworker and sculptor Ben Riddering is toiling away to give discarded scraps of wood a second life. The whirring of a chainsaw fills the air. Wearing a brown leather apron, a trucker hat, and jeans, Riddering stands surrounded by gnarled, twisted, and charred chunks of wood that at first glance looked like they were destined for the UPCYCLING Walnut tree root balls turned fireplace.

FOOT STOMPIN’ FUN Nashville-based American roots duo Smooth Hound Smith plays a free show at Morro Bay’s The Siren on Jan. 25.

Whirlwind

week!

Five days, 15 shows, 33 acts!

P

repare yourselves, live music nuts, because there’s a tsunami of shows descending on SLO County this week. Strap in, pull out your calendar, and let’s take this one day at a time.

Thursday, Jan. 25

You can start your evening with a Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents show at Morro Bay’s The Siren with Smooth Hound Smith (8 p.m.; 21-andolder; free), an Americana roots duo featuring “one-man-band” Zack Smith (guitars/vocals/foot drums/harmonicas/ banjo) and Caitlin Doyle (vocals/ percussion). The Nashville act describes their music as “a varied and unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm and blues. Using primal foot percussion, complex, fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar patterns, warbled harmonicas, tasty harmonies, and a lot of tambourine.” Later that night in SLO’s Frog and Peach, check out Petaluma rock/soul band The Highway Poets (10 p.m.; 21-and-older; free). Listing everyone from the Rolling Stones and Nirvana to the Black Keys and Otis Redding, they strive for a performance mash-up

of contemporary and classic styles. They recently released the new full-length album Chasing Youth.

Friday, Jan. 26

Get your Led Zeppelin fi x when tribute act Led Zepagain plays The Siren (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $20 presale at ticketfly.com or $25 at the door). These guys have been paying homage to Zep for 15 years, and back in 2004, Jimmy Page caught their act, asked to meet the band, posed for photos, and remarked, “It’s amazing how much you sound like us. You must have grown up on this because you were inside the music, and you paid attention to detail in your presentation. I can tell you guys really love the music!” This is as close as you’re going to get to seeing Led Zeppelin live. SLO’s historic Fremont Theater hosts hip-hop artists Joyner Lucas and Dizzy Wright (9 p.m.; $22 general admission or $77 VIP meet-and-greet, at Boo Boo Records and eventbrite. com) on their The 508/Still Movin’ Tour, which also features Marlon Craft opening the show. Lucas garnered

national attention with the verbal gymnastics of 2014’s “Backwords,” followed by his 2015 mixtape, ALONG CAME JOYNER, and its breakthrough single, “Ross Capicchioni.”

Saturday, Jan. 27

You’re going to need clones, a Star Trek transporter, or a time machine to get to everything happening this Saturday. If you want to start early, check out awardwinning singer-songwriter and rocker Kristen Black and her band at The Siren (3 p.m.; free). “We will have some new songs on tap as well!” Black said. Later that night, New Wave ska act The English Beat plays Tooth & Nail Winery (6 p.m.; all ages; $22 presale at ticketfly.com or $25 at the door) with opening act The Trouvillians. Are you excited about this one? If you are, I hope you already bought tickets. It’s sold out. If you need a dose of jazz, the SLO County Jazz Fed will deliver when twotime Grammy-winning saxophonist Ernie Watts and his quartet play SLO’s Unity Concert Hall (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $25 general, $20 Jazz Fed members, and $15

students at brownpapertickets.com and Boo Boo Records). Watts has been featured on more than 500 recordings with folks like Cannonball Adderley, Marvin Gaye, Frank Zappa, and Charlie Haden. He also played in the Johnny Carson band for 20 years. His quartet also features Marc Seales (piano), Bruce Lett (acoustic bass), and Xavier Breaker (drums). You can check out a brand new blues group, the Sugar Blues Band featuring Serena Garcia, playing at D’Anbino’s (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $10 cover). Garcia sings with the power of Big Mama Thornton or Bessie Smith, belting out old-time blues and jazz classics. She’s joined by ace players Ted Waterhouse (guitar), Johnny Johnson (harmonica), Joseph Palmer (bass), and Michael Smothers (drums). I’ve got a good feeling about this new act! Alligator Records recording artist and ripping rocking R&B act Tommy Castro and the Painkillers headline the SLO Blues Society show at the SLO Vets Hall (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $25 at Boo Boo Records, Cheap Thrills, and Paradise Records, or at the door). If you like high-energy blues and roadhouse rock, Castro delivers the goods. His newest album, Stompin’ Ground, is filled with his signature blistering guitar licks, fiery melodies, and gritty vocals. This lean, mean quartet is a powerhouse! Orphan Jon and the Abandoned opens the show. If you’re in the mood for a trip back to the New Wave ’80s, Arroyo Grande’s The Clark Center has a great double bill featuring The Motels and Bow Wow Wow with its original singer, the amazing Annabella (8 p.m.; all ages; $45 to $55 at (805) 489-9444 or clarkcenter. org)! Martha Davis and The Motels are known for classic hits such as “Only the Lonely,” “Suddenly Last Summer,” “Total Control,” “Mission of Mercy,” “Shame,” and “Danger.” Bow Wow Wow, founded by lead singer Annabella Lwin with help from U.K. music impresario Malcolm McLaren, enjoyed the mega hit “I Want Candy,” as well as “Go Wild in the Country” and “Sexy Eiffel Tower.” STARKEY continued page 40 PHOTO COURTESY OF BOW WOW WOW AND ANNABELLA LWIN

The Siren, with the help of Numbskull and Good Medicine, hosts amazing Portland-based gospel, soul, and R&B singer Liz Vice (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $15 presale at ticketfly.com or $20 at the door). “I didn’t think I was going to live past 20 years old,” Vice, who suffered from a kidney-destroying autoimmune disease, recounts in press materials. “Instead of praying that I would be healed, I was just so tired that I would pray for death every day, but every day I woke up, I decided to live that day to the fullest.” You can hear that can-do spirit in her stunning music.

Delightful dysfunction W riter-director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood, The Master, Inherent Vice) reteams with Daniel Day-Lewis in this story of dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock, who with his sister, Cyril (Lesley Manville), runs the posh fashion business the House of Woodcock. Set in 1950s London, Woodcock’s fastidious life is turned upside down by Alma (Vicky Krieps), a willful young woman who becomes his lover and muse. (130 min.)

Glen All the worst human emotions are on display in Phantom Thread, a story about ego, jealousy, manipulation, hostility, and disappointment. Incongruently, it’s also very funny. Reynolds is a selfish, pompous, egoist who believes his artistry excuses his fastidiousness and demanding nature. It’s his way or the highway. His sister, Cyril, understands this, and enables his overbearing and often cold nature to overrun his world. He’s a dressmaker to high society and to European royal families, and his work consumes him. As the film opens, we see the cruel way he dismisses his current muse, who no longer inspires his affections. It doesn’t take him long for another to strike his fancy. After Alma serves him breakfast at a country inn, he quickly sweeps her into his life. She’s rustic, a bit clumsy, and prone to embarrassment, but in her he CLAY FOR MOLDING Alma (Vicky Krieps) becomes muse, lover, and foil to Reynolds Woodcock, upending his carefully controlled life.

Anna Reynolds is clearly used to having Nothing feels rushed, which for some things done his way and to his exacting standards. He has no room for patience or viewers may translate as a slow pace, but I was never bored. Anderson is certainly imperfection in his world. His attraction one of those filmmakers critics adore to Alma is a bit of a puzzle because of because he’s always delivering surprises, that: She’s a little too real to fit into his but some viewers tend to struggle with carefully constructed life, and his sister’s his films, and his Rotten Tomato scores unflinching devotion does nothing but usually reflect that. Critics have awarded stroke his ego. Every relationship in the Phantom Thread a 91 percent rating film is unhealthy, and as you said, no while viewers scored it at 73 percent. I one qualifies as the “good guy.” When have to admit, there’s a late twist here Reynolds falls ill, Alma’s suspicion—that that didn’t quite ring true for me, but the only time he truly needs her over this film is too exquisitely made, too anyone else is when he is incapacitated— fascinating a character study, and too proves true. Munchausen by proxy mesmerizingly well acted for me to be put becomes her way of punishment, either off. It also fits well within the pantheon when she feels he needs to be reminded of of the current women’s movement, taking his humanity or taught a lesson. There’s a swipe at ’50s London patriarchy and also a sizeable age gap between the two, offering two leading ladies—Krieps and Manville—who depict characters every bit as complicated and charismatic as their male counterpart. What Reynolds does to Alma is nothing short of sexual exploitation and domination, but both Alma and Cyril find ways to assert themselves, demonstrating that the softer sex doesn’t necessarily mean weaker. Anderson has now been nominated for six Academy Awards, but he’s never won. Maybe with this film and this year, that will change. Anna Sound plays a big part in the fi lm as well. Reynolds’ annoyance is very connected to the noise around him. The simple act of buttering toast is enough for him to shoot daggers at Alma over the breakfast table and throw a fit. She learns to be silent to avoid his wrath while taking her own turn at revenge.

THE COMMUTER What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Rental Where’s it showing? Stadium 10 It seems like director Jaume Collet-Serra and actor Liam Neeson have a thing going on. First there was Unknown (2011) about a guy whose identity is stolen and he has to thwart an assassination, then there was Non-Stop (2014) about an air marshal thwarting an in-flight extortion scheme, then there was Run All Night (2015) about a mob guy who has to thwart his boss’s attempt to murder his son, and now there’s The Commuter about a supposedly mild-mannered

insurance salesman who has to thwart the assassination of a witness on a train. Yes, Michael MacCauley (Neeson) has a very particular set of skills, but one of them isn’t making The Commuter as good as Taken (2008), which Collet-Serra and Neeson seem to be chasing over and over without success. Sure, The Commuter is a serviceable action thriller, but it never quite reaches Neeson’s best action efforts like Taken or The Grey. It begins by establishing MacCauley as a committed family man who dutifully takes the commuter train in to New York every day to sell insurance out of his office in a big high rise. He’s unexpectedly fired one day. Safely on the train back to the ’burbs, MacCauley meets Joanna (Vera Farmiga), who tells him he can make $100,000 if he can locate a train passenger “who doesn’t belong,” carrying

EXACTING Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), a fastidious London dress designer in the 1950s, uses his unsparing eye to examine his creation.

Cyril is both friend and foe, vastly overprotective of her brother and his fussiness, but also a voice of reason that he will actually listen to. Director Anderson has done a bunch of fi lms that I love—Punch-Drunk Love, The Master, Inherent Vice. The guy has some serious skill at creating fascinating characters and ambiance. Coupled with the cast’s stellar performances, Lewis’ in particular, this slow-burn fi lm had me captivated from start to fi nish. One great thing about a fi lm whose principal character is a dressmaker is you know you’re in for some great costuming. The pretentious and incredibly formal dresses are amazing, stuffy, and heavy, yet with beautiful lines and folds, intended to make the wearer feel beautiful, even in the face of self-doubt and loathing. Reynolds, Cyril, and Alma are all incredibly protective of his work, even demanding a dress back when its wearer got embarrassingly drunk in it. The plot twist toward the end was a bit odd but still had its place and reason in the storyline, and it just added another layer to these odd, complicated characters. Overall, it’s a delicious and rich character study, with dark humor and devilish details woven throughout, and Lewis’ performance should not be missed.

Pick

Darkest Hour drops viewers into one of the tensest, grimmest periods of World War II to illustrate how British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Garry Oldman), orated Britain and its people out of surrendering to and into defiantly fighting Nazi Germany. Essentially a biographical portrait of Churchill, Darkest Hour leans on a phenomenal performance by Oldman to captivate the audience and make us feel the immensity of Europe teetering on the edge of destruction. Set in May of 1940, British Parliament has just ousted Neville Chamberlain as its Prime Minister as Hitler prepares to invade Belgium and Holland. Churchill is begrudgingly appointed as his successor, but fear and doubt still consumes the nation. Churchill assumes the helm with the message to the nation that accepting

defeat isn’t an option. But he faces resistance from many members of Parliament and even members of his own cabinet, who bicker with him to settle a peace treaty with Hitler, as millions of British soldiers’ lives are on the line. It’s Churchill’s commitment to the principles of his country and disdain for the moral atrocities of Nazism that compel him to push back against the momentum of a surrender. That’s what’s thrilling about this movie: the emotional battle between the convenience of giving up versus the profound consequences of that concession. Darkest Hour hits theaters at an appropriate time in history, when similar moral questions and human values are on the line. Churchill’s bluster and bombastic oration did remind me of President Donald MOVIES continued page 43

THE GREATEST SHOWMAN

What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Rental Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Stadium 10, Park, Galaxy First-time director Michael Gracey helms The Greatest Showman, an original, straightto-screen musical inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum (played here by Hugh Jackman) and the formation of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. The film never claims to be wholly factual and only uses the aspects of Barnum’s life that fit into its desired rags-to-riches structure. Overall, The Greatest Showman is a mixed bag full of flawed and fun moments alike. It’s hard to tell how serious it takes itself at times, but the best parts are the unashamedly cheesy ones.

At the Movies Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver). The cast is rounded out with a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as Harding’s impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden. Here’s the gist of the scandal for viewers who may not remember: leading up to the 1994 Olympics, Tonya’s ex-husband Jeff and his friend Shawn Eckhardt (Paul Walter Houser) conspired to hire another guy to hit Harding’s competitor Kerrigan in the back of the knees with a metal pipe. Harding’s involvement in or awareness of this plan varies depending on whose story you believe. Working off a reality that is already pretty out there, I, Tonya presents a dramatic mocku-mentary retelling of these real life events. The screenplay is closely inspired by interviews done with the real people involved in the saga, including Tonya herself. The result is spellbinding. Gillespie and Rogers succeed in not only giving us a peek into Harding’s formative years and mind, they pull the whole dang curtain back on the admittedly messed up world of competitive ice-skating. Robbie brings a fiery intensity to the complex Tonya that will surely land her an Oscar. By the time the credits roll, you may or may not be on Tonya’s side, but odds are you’ll empathize with the self-proclaimed redneck who really never got a fair shake at much in life. The tragic thing about Tonya is I think she could have persevered past the personal stuff in her life, but it was the U.S. Figure Skating Association’s rejection that really got to her. We see a glimmer of hope when a young Tonya falls in love with Jeff, but a few months in he starts beating her. The two eventually marry when Tonya is just 19, setting the stage for Harding to leave Jeff time and time again, even reuniting with her abuser after divorcing him. Upon confronting a judge about her skating scores, Harding is told that she just doesn’t have the wholesome family image the association is looking for. In the smallest, saddest voice, Harding responds with, “Why can’t it just be about the skating?” I want to take a moment to remind everyone that Tonya was the first woman in the U.S. and the

second in the world, to land a triple axel. Girl had skills. But what audiences came for is the sheer madness that unfolds in the second half of the film. After a threat is called into the ice skating rink where Tonya is set to compete, Jeff has the bright idea to send anonymous, threatening letters to Nancy to throw her off her game. Jeff’s BFF/Tonya’s bodyguard Shaun somehow gets involved and takes over, hiring two of his guys. A bad idea turns into an even worse idea, and things spin wildly out of control, but the most unbelievable aspect of this tabloid tale is just how much the story’s villains accomplished, in spite of crippling stupidity. I, Tonya takes someone from popular culture we thought we had the measure of, and throws all of our ideas out the window. (119 min.) —Ryah Cooley

Johnson and Hart bounce off each other perfectly—no I’m not tired of the height difference jokes; it worked out well here. Outlandish Black can hold his own in a scene, and newcomer Gillian hilariously portrays a geeky teenager. I was laughing nonstop throughout the film. (112 min.) —Karen Garcia

LADY BIRD

The historical drama picks up where the first season left off, in the late 1950s. There’s a lot to tackle here, but themes that stick out this season include scandal, Buckingham Palace fighting the tide of change, colonialism, infidelity, and childhood trauma. Ah, royals. They’re just like us. Like many period pieces, The Crown can only go so far story wise, which makes it all the more interesting that a large part of this season chose to focus on the rumor that Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, cheated on Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy). Because the rumors were never fully substantiated, the show can only heavily imply that maybe something was going on. A heartbreakingly confrontational scene in which Foy leaves behind the façade as queen to confront Philip as a wife still leaves it unclear whether Philip flirted with the line or flat out crossed it. At a minimum, you’ll walk away with the impression that young Philip was something of a cad who should have been grateful that Elizabeth ever bothered with him despite his Nazi-ass family. And in season one, while the royal children were merely pudgy props, this season they have actual limbs and lines. Prince Charles (Billy Jenkins) even gets a whole story line about his fraught relationship with his father, Philip. While real life Charles kind of sucks and didn’t deserve Lady Diane at all, this season sheds some light on how he came to be the person he is today. And who could forget the edgy, good time gal, Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby)? After her sister, the queen, refuses to let her marry the love of her life in season one since he was

Chef Giovanni’s divorced, Margaret spends much of season two boozing and sassing it up. It’s interesting to see the repeated theme of the royal family (and fine, society at large, too) treating divorce like a cancer, when in present day, Prince Harry’s soon-to-be wife is divorced herself. Despite her serious “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” vibes and a failed almost engagement to an absolute twat, Margaret manages to find love with someone the palace inevitably digs up some dirt on, leaving Elizabeth once more in the unenviable position of deciding whether to compromise the image of the crown or break her sister’s heart again. While Foy and the rest of the cast have done an impeccable job of embodying real people (some of whom are still alive today), the nature of The Crown jumping decades every few seasons means that season three will have an entirely new cast, so that the characters we’ve come to love can age accordingly without massive amounts of makeup or CGI. The interwebs are abuzz with talk of Olivia Colman reportedl y taking over as Queen Elizabeth II and Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret.

Kay knows if she publishes, The Post may fall to criminal charges. Spielberg is a superlative director, not as showy as some, but great at building tension in the small moments and letting his actors carry the weight of scenes, and what amazing actors! Streep is a revelation, displaying Kay’s internal struggle with the lightest of expressions, yet we know exactly what she’s going through. Hanks plays Bradlee with the brash confidence of someone more committed to journalistic integrity than with keeping his job. As far as The Post is concerned, I see Oscar nominations on the horizon. This is great filmmaking! (116 min.) —Glen Starkey

THE SHAPE OF WATER

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm, Stadium 10, Park, Galaxy Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is a lonely mute who works as a janitor in a high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. For 10 years she’s walked and cleaned the halls of the facility with her friend Zelda (Octavia Spencer), with Zelda doing all of the talking about her hardworking, yet lazy, husband. Men, am I right? Every day Elisa sticks to her routine: take a shower, polish her shoes, make lunch as well as a meal for her neighbor and friend Giles (Richard Jenkins), and then catch the

bus to work. While she can’t say anything, her actions make up for the silence—she also communicates using sign language— and she’s a thoughtful individual. She often spends her time scanning the TV Guide with Giles, a closeted gay man, and watching old films with elaborate tales of love, something both are yearning for. Her life takes a turn when she and Zelda are called into a room to clean up a bloody mess created by “the asset” (Doug Jones), at least that’s what the scientists and government officials are calling it. The asset is a scaled creature from South Africa that now resides in a water tank against its will. Elisa is drawn to the creature, maybe because she too is an outsider in the world that she lives in. She forms a bond with the creature that feels more like love than friendship. But her days of sharing hardboiled eggs for lunch and listening to her vinyl record player are numbered; the very fate of the creature is on the line. The film also has Del Toro’s signature, uniquely horrifying creatures, hence the asset with his scaly body and fish-like eyes. But while he’s a bit scary to look at, he has the emotions and thoughts that any human would. That’s what Elisa is drawn to, especially since they both can’t talk. Elisa takes comfort in this creature because he can’t see that she’s different from other humans. It’s a beautifully told film of finding some sort of compassion in an otherwise mundane world. What I loved about The Shape of Water is that it’s very whimsical. It reminds me of Amelie, a simple individual living an extraordinary life without her knowledge. Hawkins does an amazing job of portraying this shy woman fierce enough to overstep boundaries for a noble cause. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t just a love story, guys; there’s also plenty of action and drama to keep you on your toes. I’ll leave you with this: The end was a splashing twist that I wasn’t predicting at all. (123 min.) —Karen Garcia

Where’s it showing? Galaxy In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, writer/ director Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) continues the Skywalker saga as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force. What’s interesting about the latest chapter in the saga is the connection that Rey (Daisy Ridley) is building with the force. While it’s thought that Luke (Mark Hamil) is the last Jedi needed to save the Rebellion, let’s be real: There are great forces of power within Rey and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Rey seeks Luke not only for his help with the fight against the First Order, the next generation of the Empire, but also for his teachings. There is a strong sense of the Force within her, she just doesn’t know how to harness or understand it. That connection has brought a different kind of communication between her and Kylo Ren. Wherever the two are, they are able to communicate with one another and even see the other’s surroundings. (152 min.) —Karen Garcia

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI

endeavor is complicated by the fact that the so-called Northern Alliance isn’t much of an alliance, and Gen. Dostrum and his warlord counterparts are as likely to fight each other as their shared enemy the Taliban. It’s worth noting, by the way, that in our politically correct world where it’s hard to find an un-offensive and unambiguous movie enemy, the Taliban are the perfect foil. They’re evil, and it’s easy to root for them to get blown to smithereens. Also, unlike most of the best war films, 12 Strong isn’t antiwar. The 12 soldiers are righteous patriots, and the Taliban deserves every headshot and blown-up tank they get. Yes, the film is jingoistic claptrap, but if you want to get your juices flowing and take your mind off all of the U.S.’s many misguided and unnecessary wars, 12 Strong ought to do the trick. It feels like we’re fighting the good fight. The story is rousing for a number of reasons. For one, the U.S. Army wasn’t really prepared to fight in Afghanistan, and soldiers had to order their own cold weather gear from Cabela’s, so these soldiers feel very gung-ho. After they’re airlifted into the war zone, they discover that Gen. Dostrum and his militia are on horseback going up against tanks and missiles. Nelson and his men, most unfamiliar with horses, will have to ride into battle; these guys will adapt to the conditions they encounter. They’re also grossly outnumbered, so they’re badasses. What the Americans do have is the ability to call in precision airstrikes, and they do—a lot of them. What 12 Strong depicts is one of the U.S.’s most amazing and unlikely military victories. The film’s not interested in the larger ramifications of war. In fact, it barely touches on the psychological consequences of combat, and it’s certainly not interested in the pros and cons of American neocolonialism and “nation building.” However, if you want to see some heroic Green Berets get some much-deserved payback for 9/11, strap in and take the ride.

dying,” “And still no arrests?” and “How come, Chief Willoughby?” The writing is impeccably sharp, with searing lines thrown in at the most emotionally potent moments, and yet, there are so many laugh-out-loud moments, too, in this film that deals rather heavily in anger and sorrow. The acting is superb, particularly performances from McDormand, who plays Mildred as hardened and determined to find justice, and Harrelson as the seemingly hick police chief creates so much nuance and depth for his character. And yet, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri requires being OK with swallowing a hefty dose of imaginative realism. (115 min.) —Ryah Cooley

What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Stadium 10, Park, Galaxy Producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down) is known for backing big, bombastic films, but director Nicolai Fuglsig’s 12 Strong isn’t quite as obnoxious as many of Bruckheimer’s previous movies. Instead, this film adaptation of Doug Stanton’s book, Horse Soldiers, about the true story of a Special Forces team that joins Afghanistan’s Northern Alliance in the war against the Taliban, allows viewers to breathe a little between explosions. In fact, it begins rather quietly by establishing the family lives of the various soldiers, especially Capt. Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth) and his second in command Hal Spencer (Michael Shannon). They think their warrior days are behind them, but then 9/11 occurs, and suddenly they find their 12-man squad chosen to be the first American forces set loose in Afghanistan. Most of their squad members are anonymously interchangeable though Michael Peña as Sam Diller and Trevante Rhodes as Ben Milo stand out. Their mission is to join up with local warlord Gen. Dostrum (Navid Negahban), a fierce warrior with a grudge against Taliban leader Mullah Razzan (Numan Acar). Their

When we wake up on Friday for our last full day, we head to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. It was either that or nearby Joshua Tree, but I’d never been up the tram, so what the heck! We pay $5 to park and pony up $29.95 each to ride the tram, which takes us up the mountain to the 14,000-acre Mt. San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness Area. Wow! The tram rotates 360 degrees while it ascends and descends the mountain, and the views are stunning. Every time the tram crosses one of the cable towers, it swings and the tram riders squeal in frightened delight. When we get to the top, it’s about 30 degrees colder than at the base, and I’m glad I brought a sweater and didn’t wear

We check out the views down in the valley—the various desert cities, the wind farm, some blue lagoons—and go to the Lookout Lounge for bloody marys and grab some clam chowder from Pines Café. Hey, don’t judge! We’re on vacation! Later that night, we drive into Palm Springs to meet our dear friend Joanie at Stacy’s, a piano bar in the gay area of town. Singer and pianist Tommy Dodson is tickling the ivories and singing silky smooth covers of R&B hits. Joanie tells us that Stacy’s is the place to start the night but that she’ll end up at the Blackbook or Hunters later. Everyone’s super friendly and apparently I’d make a passable “bear,” which according to Wikipedia is “often a larger, hairier man who projects an image of rugged masculinity.” Mm, rugged! “You’re tearing me apart, Joanie!” I’m driving, so Anna and I finish up our second round and head back to the condo to get some sleep before our drive home. My in-laws arrive at the condo tomorrow for the Palm Springs International Film Festival, so we need to make it spick and span before we leave. On Saturday morning we take another soak, we clean, we leave Anna’s mom a couple of beers in the fridge, and we eat one final Palm Springs meal at a Belgian place called Si Bon, then we hit the road for the long, boring drive home, where we quote The Room and dream of retirement.

It’s a cemetery with nothing but flat markers, which probably makes it easy to mow but it’s pretty hard to find the resting places of the famous. Director Busby Berkeley, Cher hubby Sonny Bono, Howdy Doody creator and puppeteer Velma Wayne Dawson, Gabor sisters’ mom Jolie Gabor, McDonald’s co-founder Maurice “Mac” MacDonald, actor William Powell, and author Frank Scully—among many others—are interred here. We find Francis Albert Sinatra tucked in by his former model and showgirl wife, Barbara, and his mom and dad, Dolly and Anthony Martin. Then we go get lunch.

We’re talking lush white carpets, copious mirrors, and saucy naked lady paintings in the bedrooms. Yeah, we’re posh like that. I won’t bore you with the drive, which is boring, but we arrive, and after stopping for groceries at Gelson’s (OK, we need cold beer, but we get bagels for breakfast too!), we hit the condo, grab our suits and towels, and head to the Jacuzzi. Ah! Let the relaxation begin! The next morning we awake to a spectacular, eye-popping sunrise! Then we do practically nothing. I won’t lie to you. The days go slowly in the Sonoran Desert. We have time to put a puzzle together. I find that whenever we drive somewhere, I have to keep checking my speed … because I’m driving too slow! The place is filled with retirees with no place to go and all day to get there, and it’s easy to drift into the glacial pace. Around lunch we eat at delicious Piero PizzaVino, and later that night we watch The Room, the so-called “Best Worst Movie Ever Made,” which was the subject of James Franco’s recent The Disaster Artist. We laugh our asses off and spend the rest of our vacation quoting the film’s most ridiculous lines. “I did not hit her! I did naaaaught … oh hi, Mark.” “You’re tearing me apart, Lisa!” “I definitely have breast cancer.” On Thursday we’re determined to be more

BY HAYLEY THOMAS CAIN PHOTOS COURTESY OF NOURISH

It’s not diet food!

@flavorslo

Nourish your body on the go (and like it)

M

erriam-Webster’s definition of “nourish” is simple, but totally incomplete: To “nurture,” or “promote the growth of.” Kind of vague, no? Of course, it is what we shine our attention on that will grow, and manifest, in our lives. With this definition in mind, you could either “nourish” good habits or bad. At the start of the New Year, we all have the best intentions for boosting our health and wellness. We promise ourselves so much, yet tend to execute so little. What stands in the way of achieving these lifelong health goals? I’d argue it’s a simple word: “flavor.” Actually, I’d add “creativity” to the mix, too. How many kale salads—as great as that particular kale salad may be—can you eat before you say, “screw it,” and dive head-first into a weeklong pizza bender (the dippingeach-bite-in-Ranch-dressing-kind)? By now, we all know that working out is actually a smaller (yet important) percentage of cultivating a truly healthy lifestyle. Diet—the fuel we put into our bodies day in and day out—tends to help or hinder us most. The folks at Nourish understand this. That’s why this sleek grab-and-go eatery—located in downtown SLO just next door to Granada Hotel and Bistro— is always featuring something new and nourishing in its shiny deli case. “We wanted to make the food fast and accessible. A lot of people want to eat healthy, and they want to do so every day, and they want healthy, delicious food you can get excited about, grab quickly, and go,” Granada General Manager Eva Morales said. Yes, you can easily get your order in and get on with your life. Want to chill longer? Snag a table either in the cozy dining room or head next door and sprawl out on Granada’s swanky outdoor patio. The first thing I noticed upon entering Granada’s newest sister spot? The vibrant colors beaming from behind the glass. Green leafy loveliness; tender whole grains; plump legumes; and choice, fresh carved meats beckoned. Plus, there’s actually bread! Glutenfree and old-school varieties (with all the gluten) too. Nourish has its own take on breakfast and lunch, and it’s not what you might expect from your typical “health food” establishment. That’s because it’s not a health food establishment. A.m. meals include the requisite smoothies (“green,” “immune,” “blueberry coconut”), but breakfast might be as hefty as an egg sandwich with choice of glutenfree or Breaking Bread levain and local farm eggs, house-cured bacon, heirloom tomato, goat cheese, and spicy greens. Oatmeal hounds (that’s me!) must

FAST, FEEL-GOOD FOOD Nourish in downtown SLO is all about health food that doesn’t bore, from the “green eggs and grains bowl” to Moroccan eggs and daily toast topped with rotating seasonal ingredients on artisanal bread. A daily carvery menu also offers braised local proteins, while the signature “nourish bowl” satisfies with lentils, spinach, yams, chutney, spicy sauce, and quinoa.

Not your mom’s healthy meals

Nourish is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The restaurant is located at 1126 Morro St. next to Granada Hotel and Bistro, which offers small plates from 3 to 5 p.m. daily and dinner service from 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 5 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. New Nourish customers can get 20 percent off their first meal through the end of the year. Go to nourishslo.com for more information.

try an already cult fave: Maple quinoa granola, served with organic milk or almond milk, and topped with your preference of fruit, Straus yogurt, or chia pudding. Lunch might be a bowl packed with red lentils, spinach, yams, chutney, spicy sauce, quinoa, and a fried egg; a “daily sandwich” made lovingly with local market produce, house pickles, and roasted meat; or a refreshing noodle salad with shrimp, daikon, Fresno chiles, fresh

herbs, and fish sauce vinaigrette. Morales said the idea for Nourish sprung from a re-tool of Granada’s former lunch offerings. The restaurant found that although dinner and weekend brunch service was popular, a sit-down lunch just wasn’t what most locals were looking for day to day. “Monday through Friday, locals aren’t necessarily looking for a long leisurely lunch. We feel the Nourish concept is more what people are looking for: Grab

breakfast on your way to work. Have a breakfast meeting here before you head to work. Most people don’t have an hour and a half to sit down and eat lunch. We want to fit into your schedule and serve the community,” she added. You might recognize Granada newcomer Chef Roxanne Lapuyade from her former restaurant, Roxanne’s Cafe, which operated behind Smiling Dog Yoga in SLO for six years before closing about a year ago. Her résumé also includes stints as the produce manager for SLO Natural Foods Co-op, an assistant pastry chef at Honeymoon Café in Pismo Beach, and sous chef at Thomas Hill Organics in Paso Robles, where she worked alongside Nourish’s other culinary half, Chef Kenny Bigwood (he helms Granada’s dinner service at the Bistro). Sure, you can still get Roxanne’s Cafe’s famous “Ro-boats”: Romain lettuce topped with citrus cashew spread, mango, avocado, cabbage, and carrots, but the rest of the menu is a collaboration between the two chefs. In this way, it’s about so much more than offering gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and paleo options. It’s about offering up a diversity of food that you’d actually want to eat, again and again.

“We want to offer something for everyone, and we include meat, organic chicken, wild salmon—which can be added to a vegan salad,” Lapuyade said. “We roast all our meats the day of and then use them to create seasonal soups, sandwiches. This food is satisfying, really a combination of flavors.” Partner-in-crime Bigwood brings his own flare, including a classic house habanero carrot hot sauce and a knack for “upping the ante” on umami, funk, and pickled flavors. “I’m the health food person, I like the vegetables—they really get me going,” Lapuyade said. “Kenny is all about using every single part of the ingredient and he loves making cured things and sauces. We really push and pull each other.” Try the broccoli salad, if it’s still available (recipes change as quick as the seasons). This is a perfect example of how health consciousness, a respect for good quality produce, and fearless creativity can make us actually want to nourish those good habits on a regular basis. “When developing the recipe, it was a back and forth. He’d say, ‘Let’s try pickled onions on it,’ and I’d say, ‘It already has sweetness on it, no.’ Then, I’d try it his way, and Eva would try it, and we’d all agree,’” Lapuyade said. Next, Bigwood suggested adding dukka, an Egyptian spice blend loaded with a unique combination of coarsely ground toasted seeds and nuts. Lapuyade, the veggie purist, nearly flipped her lid. Isn’t this how all great artistic duos push the boundary of their art? “I tried it and thought, ‘Wow. That’s a nice crunch,’ ” the chef said with a laugh. “Now, people want to eat it every day.” ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain has been on a weeklong pizza bender. She can be reached at hthoms@newtimesslo.com.

The Petition for Probate requests that CRISTINA ARONSOHN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. 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 6, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept: 9, in Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo, located at 1035 Palm Street, 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.

LegaL Notices 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.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Imagine that you’re still alive in 2090. What’s your life like? Testify at freewillastrology.com.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Anders Haugen competed for the U.S. as a ski jumper in the 1924 Winter Olympics. Although he was an accomplished athlete who had previously set a world record for distance, he won no medals at the games. But wait! Fifty years later, a sports historian discovered that there had a been a scoring mistake back in 1924. In fact, Haugen had done well enough to win the bronze medal. The mistake was rectified, and he finally got his long-postponed award. I foresee a comparable development happening in your life, Aries. Recognition or appreciation you deserved to have received some time ago will finally come your way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In 1899, Sobhuza II became King of Swaziland even though he was less than 5 months old. He kept his job for the next 82 years, and along the way managed to play an important role when his nation gained independence from the colonial rule of the United Kingdom. These days you may feel a bit like Sobhuza did when he was still in diapers, Taurus: not sufficiently prepared or mature for the greater responsibilities that are coming your way. But just as he received competent help in his early years from his uncle and grandmother, I suspect you’ll receive the support you’ll need to ripen.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In my ideal world, dancing and singing wouldn’t be luxuries practiced primarily by professionals. They would be regular occurrences in our daily routines. We’d dance and sing whenever we needed a break from the numbing trance. We’d whirl and hum to pass the time. We would greet each other with an interpretative movement and a little tune. In schools, dance and song would be a standard part of the curriculum—as important as math and history. That’s my utopian dream, Gemini. What’s yours? In accordance with the astrological omens, I urge you to identify the soul medicine you’d love to incorporate into your everyday regimen. Then go ahead and incorporate it! It’s time for you to get more aggressive about creating the world you want to live in.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Psychology pioneer Carl Jung believed that most of our big problems can never be fully solved. And that’s actually a good thing. Working on them keeps us lively, in a state of constant transformation. It ensures we don’t stagnate. I generally agree with Jung’s high opinion of our problems. We should indeed be grateful for the way they impel us to grow. However, I think that’s irrelevant for you right now. Why? Because you have an unprecedented opportunity to solve and graduate from a major long-running problem. So no, don’t be grateful for it. Get rid of it. Say goodbye to it forever.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Between now and March 21, you will be invited, encouraged, and pushed to deepen your understanding of intimate relationships. You will have the chance to learn much, much more about how to create the kind of togetherness that both comforts and inspires you. Will you take advantage of this eight-week opportunity? I hope so. You may imagine that you have more pressing matters to attend to. But the fact is that cultivating your relationship skills would transform you in ways that would best serve those other pressing matters.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In December, mass protests broke out in Mashhad, Iran’s second-largest city. Why? The economy had been gradually worsening. Inflation was slowly but surely exacting a toll. Unemployment was increasing. But one of the immediate triggers for the uprising was a 40 percent hike in the price of eggs. It focused the Iranian people’s collective angst and galvanized a dramatic response. I’m predicting a comparable sequence in your personal future, Virgo. A specific irritant will emerge, motivating you to stop putting up with trends that have been subtly bothering you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the late 1980s, Budweiser used a Bull Terrier to promote its Bud Light beer in commercials. The dog, who became mega-famous, was presented as a rich macho party animal named Spuds MacKenzie. The ad campaign was successful, boosting sales 20 percent. But the truth was that the actor playing Spuds was a female dog whose owners called her Evie. To earn money, the poor creature, who was born under the sign of Libra, was forced to assume a false identity. To honor Evie’s memory, and in alignment with current astrological omens, I urge you human Libras to strip away any layers of false identity you’ve been pressured to acquire. Be your Real Self—to the max.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The giant panda is a bear native to China. In the wild, its diet is 99 percent bamboo. But bamboo is not an energy-rich food, which means the creature has to compensate by consuming 20 to 30 pounds of the stuff every day. Because it’s so busy gathering its sustenance, the panda doesn’t have time to do much socializing. I mention this, Scorpio, because I want to offer up the panda as your anti-power animal for the coming weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you should have a diversified approach to getting your needs met—not just in regards to food, but in every other way as well. Variety is not just the spice of life; it’s the essence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re the star of the “movie” that endlessly unfolds in your imagination. There may be a number of other lead actors and actresses, but few if any have your luster and stature. You also have a supporting cast, as well as a full complement of extras. To generate all the adventure you need, your story needs a lot of dramatis personae. In the coming weeks, I suggest that you be alert for certain minor characters who are primed to start playing a bigger role in your narrative. Consider the possibility of inviting them to say and do more to advance the plot.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Thirty-five miles per hour is typically the highest speed attained by the U.S. Navy’s Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. That’s not very fast. On the other hand, each ship’s engine generates 190 megawatts, enough to provide the energy needs of 140,000 houses, and can go more than 20 years without refueling. If you don’t mind, I’m going to compare you to one of those aircraft carriers during the next four weeks. You may not be moving fast, but you will have maximum stamina and power.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The pawpaw is a tasty fruit that blends the flavors of mango, banana, and melon. But you rarely find it in grocery stores. One reason is that the fruit ripens very fast after being picked. Another is that the pollination process is complicated. In response to these issues, a plant scientist named Neal Peterson has been trying to breed the pawpaw to be more commercially viable. Because of his work, cultivated crops have finally begun showing up at some farmers’ markets. I’d like to see you undertake metaphorically similar labors in 2018, Aquarius. I think you’ll have good luck at developing rough potentials into more mature forms of expression. You’ll have skill at turning unruly raw materials into more useful resources. Now is a great time to begin.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An iceberg is a huge chunk of ice that has cracked away from a glacier and drifted off into the open sea. Only 9 percent of it is visible above the waterline. The underwater part, which is most of the iceberg, is basically invisible. You can’t know much about it just by looking at the top. This is an apt metaphor for life itself. Most everyone and everything we encounter is 91 percent mysterious or hidden or inaccessible to our conscious understanding. That’s the weird news, Pisces. The good news is that during the next three weeks you will have an unprecedented ability to get better acquainted with the other 91 percent of anything or anyone you choose to explore. ∆
