Help keep open spaces open

ecreation officials throughout San Luis Obispo County are asking residents to adhere to social distancing guidelines when enjoying outdoor spaces to avoid the closure of open spaces and trails. SLO Parks and Recreation Department Director Greg Avakian told New Times, the department “knows both the physical and mental wellness of our community is to be outside and moving” as well as enjoying the fresh the air. “The closures of all of our facilities for safety that include the playground, the slides, and those kinds of things. We are trying to do everything we can to maintain our availability for our open space trails,” Avakian said. To keep visitors safe, the department is implementing directional signage on trails to keep hikers on one track—and avoid run-ins with people going in the opposite direction. There is also educational signage at all trailheads on the importance of maintaining 6 feet from one another. “We’re even incorporating park ambassadors at our neighborhood parks to try to help educate people on social distancing,” he said. The department is doing everything possible to inform the community through social media, signage, and increased staff presence to ensure their safety. “Because if our community can’t adhere to these ordinances then we will have to follow what our colleagues have done at the Pismo Preserve and Los Angeles County,” he said. “We’re trying to do everything possible to avoid that, but it takes our community to also play their role.” LA County closed its trail system to the public because it was too difficult for the large influx of trail users to maintain social distancing, and something similar happened with the Pismo Preserve. After monitoring visitor use over the weekend of March 21 and 22, The Land

PHOTO COURTESY OF SLO PARKS AND RECREACTION INSTAGRAM Conservancy of SLO County announced on March 23 that it had closed the Pismo Preserve until further notice. Executive Director Kaila Dettman told New Times that the conservancy has been working with the city of Pismo Beach to monitor visitor use at the preserve, which opened to the public for the first time in January. Dettman said she drove through the parking lot of the Pismo Preserve a couple of times March 22. It was packed. “The bottom line is it’s a really popular place. The single-track trails in many locations are pretty narrow, and it can be hard for people to pass each other without coming near each other,” she said. She said there was a lot of congestion in the parking lot, people coming and going, and using the restroom facilities. “Even though most people were trying to abide by social distancing, it’s hard to do,” she said. The decision was not made lightly, Dettman said, and the organization is ENJOYING THE OUTDOORS Visitors can still very sad to close the preserve. enjoy open spaces and trails for the time being, as long “But we believe that we have a as they maintain a 6-foot distance from others. responsibility to help slow or stop the spread [of COVID-19] so we’re trying to weekend, which made it impossible for the public to do our part to do that.

Pismo prepares for major tourism-related losses

At a special meeting on March 23, Pismo Beach City Council unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the city to use up to $3 million of its $5.4 million general fund reserve to support city operations and cash flow needs in fiscal years 2020 and 2021. The city also passed an urgency ordinance delaying the penalties and interest fees associated with late transient occupancy taxes and lodging business improvement district assessments. The ordinance effectively gives struggling hotels and other lodging businesses until Aug. 31 to pay fees that are due to the city on March 31 and April 30. Hotels across the nation and state are taking serious hits. More than 125,000 hotel jobs have been lost in California because of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release from the American Hotel and Lodging Association. The association estimates that another roughly 414,000 jobs that support the hotel industry indirectly have also been lost. In the press release, Pismo Beach-based hotelier and American Hotel and Lodging Association member Vijay Patel said it’s been a difficult time for all hoteliers, but especially those operating small, locally owned hotels. Mayor Waage said a good chunk of Pismo’s lodging businesses are locally owned small businesses. They have fixed costs and bills and loans to pay, Waage said, and it won’t be good for Pismo if any of them go out of business. He

The coronavirus-related shelter at home is taking its toll on everyone in SLO County, but things are looking especially bleak for coastal towns that rely heavily on tourism revenue for funding—revenue that is currently non-existent. Pismo Beach is already preparing for the worst. About 45 percent of Pismo’s $24 million annual general fund comes from transient occupancy taxes alone, according to a city staff report, taxes charged to tourists renting rooms in hotels, inns, and other lodging facilities in town. With non-essential businesses closed down and travel restricted, Pismo is expecting to take a major financial hit. “The hotels are essentially empty,” Pismo Mayor Ed Waage told New Times. Restaurants and bars are limited to take-out, most wineries and retail stores are closed, and Waage said those closures trickle out and add up to fewer revenues from permits, sales taxes, lodging business improvement district assessments, and other fees that Pismo leans on for funding. Although Pismo Beach is in comfortable position financially right now, Waage said there are concerns about how long the COVID-19 shutdowns will last and what kinds of long-term economic impacts they’ll have. In a staff report, city staff anticipate losses of up to $3 million to $4 million this fiscal year.

Diablo Canyon on-site workforce ‘greatly reduced’

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, PG&E has asked all but essential employees at Diablo Canyon Power Plant to work from home, as the utility takes unprecedented measures to try to protect the safe and reliable operation of California’s last remaining nuclear power plant throughout the crisis. Suzanne Hosn, a PG&E spokesperson, told New Times that PG&E activated its emergency operations center in response to COVID-19 and is now implementing a “holistic pandemic response plan” at the Diablo Canyon Power Plant. A core component of that plan is to limit the plant’s on-site workforce to only essential operations, maintenance, and security employees, in an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread. “We’ve implemented a number of protective actions at the power plant to protect the health and safety of our workforce and ensure the safe and reliable operation and maintenance of the units,” Hosn said by phone on March 24. “We’re safely operating the plant and we have the staffing that we need. It’s a greatly reduced number, but we’re at required staffing.” Another COVID-19 protection measure involves rotating shifts at the plant in separate groups, so that in the event one worker tests positive for the virus and compromises team members, a different group can safely step in. “A variety of scenarios have been prepared” with respect to the progression of COVID-19 and its impacts, Hosn added. PG&E had an existing pandemic response plan before COVID-19, but it’s now being updated to meet the demands of the current situation. “Those plans, with the potential thresholds for implementation, are being very thoughtfully developed,” Hosn said, “and it’s important to understand that those are being developed with input from our regulators.” The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the federal agency that licenses and oversees the operation of nuclear power plants, said on its website that it’s “communicating regularly with nuclear plants to discuss current activities and future plans” in light of COVID-19. Resident inspectors at the NRC are continuing to make periodic visits to the plant sites and are also remotely monitoring plant data systems and other activities. “The NRC will require plants to shut down if they cannot appropriately staff their facilities,” the website states. Hosn said that PG&E has been in “continuous contact” with the NRC about the status of Diablo Canyon and its emergency plans, and is also cooperating with any requests for information from the California Public Utilities Commission. “Their oversight continues,” she said. With Diablo Canyon powering nearly 10 percent of the entire state’s electrical grid, the nuclear plant is an essential operation that PG&E hopes goes uninterrupted by the pandemic. “We are committed to providing safe and reliable energy and ensuring business continuity in these really challenging times,” Hosn said. —Peter Johnson

Cal Poly admissions process changes

Currently Cal Poly’s spring quarter classes have been moved to online instruction, some students living on-campus have moved back to their permanent residences, and graduation ceremonies have been postponed. Prospective students waiting on their acceptance emails for this fall won’t be able to get a glimpse of university life in-person, a result of safety precautions taken amid COVID-19. University spokesperson Matt Lazier told New Times the university is developing a host of opportunities for future Mustangs to further explore Cal Poly from the safety of their homes. “While in-person versions of campus tours, info sessions, and open house have been suspended, we plan to offer each of these and more as a virtual experiences,” Lazier said. He advised interested students to visit the Cal Poly website as it will be updated with a variety of virtual experiences soon. Students who are still weighing their options when deciding which university to commit to, should check the Cal Poly website for their specific deadline. Application deadlines are set by the individual degree programs and can vary significantly. Nationally, the deadline for students to submit their acceptance is May 1. The nonprofit Admissions Community Cultivating Equity & Peace Today (ACCEPT) has tracked about 200 schools throughout the United States that have committed to shifting that deadline to June 1 to give students and families more times. Cal Poly isn’t on the list, but some degree programs already have a June 1 deadline. Lazier said in terms of their admissions and acceptance timeline there hasn’t been a change. The university plans to complete its selection process by April 1. “In addition, we will continue to work with admitted students to provide them the information they need in order to make an informed decision about attending Cal Poly. We also recognize that this pandemic has created a very fluid environment,” he said. “As the situation continues to unfold, we will be conscious of areas where flexibility is necessary.” Currently, the admissions team for the university is working remotely. Lazier said if parents or students have questions, he encourages them to email the office at admissions@calpoly.edu and staff will assist them. The university is committed to working with K-12 and community college partners to understand their limitations and needs as well. Cal Poly’s priority filing date for financial aid was March 2 but the university changed its process by continuing to make the aid available to students. Lazier said the university continues to award financial aid as current and admitted students and families complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) and California Dream Applications. Financial aid for the 2020-21school year is based on student and family income from 2018. Lazier said for anyone who has experienced a significant reduction of that

income in 2020 can submit a change-ofincome request. Each university has its own unique policy for reviewing the specific requests. Cal Poly, he said, begins accepting those requests in mid-June so that staff can see a full six-month picture of current and anticipated resources for the year. “If a student is attending or considering other colleges or universities, they should check the website of the institution or contact that financial aid office to find out what will be needed and when,” Lazier said. Cal Poly’s financial aid office staff is still working remotely and remains available to parents and students via email. —Karen Garcia

Avila Golf Resort license delayed again

A county hearing regarding the Avila Beach Golf Resort’s application for an entertainment license was once again postponed on March 24, this time because of coronavirus-related hits to the business. At a meeting on March 24, the SLO County Board of Supervisors voted to push a hearing on the resort’s application for a temporary commercial outdoor entertainment license to May 12. The hearing was initially scheduled for December 2019, but it was delayed after confusion over whether the resort would first need approval from the California Coastal Commission. The license—it would allow the resort to host up to 12 one-day events with up to 3,000 attendees and five multi-day events with up to 5,000 attendees each year—has been controversial among Avila Beach residents who worry about traffic congestion and noise caused by big events. But co-owner Rob Rossi said the license isn’t the resort’s main concern right now. “I mean our focus is totally on trying to get through to the other side of this,” Rossi told New Times. “This” being the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced non-essential businesses of all kinds to cancel events, significantly reduce operations, or close down entirely. At the Avila Beach Golf Resort, outdoor concerts, festivals, and weddings have been rescheduled or canceled. Hotel rooms and restaurants are empty, and while golf was still allowed as of March 24, Rossi said it’s not looking good for that activity either. Nearly 300 employees associated with the golf resort were furloughed or laid off within the last few weeks, Rossi said. There are some other issues with the entertainment license process that Rossi said he needs more time to work through, too. But right now, he said he’s not even sure what his business will look like come May. “I think it’s going to be a real challenge to reopen and re-create momentum after this,” Rossi said. —Kasey Bubnash

More than half of San Luis Obispo County’s child care centers have closed their doors in the wake of COVID-19, according to the CAPSLO Child Care Resource Connection, leaving essential service workers searching for options and child care providers scrambling to provide solutions. “We’ve seen a real drop in the number of programs that are open,” CAPSLO Children Services Manager Shana Paulson told New Times on March 25. Due to the shelter-at-home orders and concerns about how to operate day cares safely, Paulson said the number of open child care centers in SLO County plummeted from 111 to 48. Close to 30 home-based centers also closed. Those that remain open have less capacity and fewer staff members in order to maintain social distancing. Nearly all after-school programs closed as well. As families and child care providers confront this new reality, Paulson said her agency and the community are working together to devise new options and solutions—with a focus on helping the essential service workers who are on the frontlines of battling COVID-19. “It’s time for real innovation and community,” Paulson said. “People are ready to start rebuilding and building something different for this time.” SLO County created an “emergency child care” webpage at readyslo.org that allows essential workers—first responders, health care professionals, and emergency county personnel in water, trash, road maintenance, and custodial divisions—to sign up for child care. It also enables child care businesses and professionals to go to the website and sign up to offer their services. The county says it will use the web platform to help essential service workers find child care in the community. “We’re generally working with child care providers that are already in existence in the community and trying to place the children of first responders in their facilities as able,” said Michelle Shoresman, a public information officer with the SLO County Health Agency. But SLO County is also looking to help expand the options that are available. At a March 24 press briefing, SLO County Office of Education Superintendent James Brescia said his office plans to open an emergency child care facility starting the week of March 30. Further details weren’t available at press time. “We anticipate mobilizing our first emergency child care center for first responders next week, and will scale services as requested by the Office of Emergency Services,” Brescia said on March 24. CAPSLO’s Paulson added that officials are also in touch with other business owners who have expressed interest in opening their facilities as potential day care center locations. “What’s been great is that everyone’s working together to create these choices,” she said. As clearer public health guidelines emerge that instruct child care providers on how to safely operate their centers during the pandemic, Paulson is hopeful that some of the providers that closed their doors will reopen soon. “We’ll be getting those [materials] out not only to the programs but to the families,” she said. ∆ —Peter Johnson1

G

reg Holt, executive chef and owner of Big Sky Cafe, said even though he can’t have dine-in customers he’s still busy running his restaurant. Holt’s restaurant and many others throughout San Luis Obispo County were subject to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order of reducing their occupancy by half in an effort to enforce social distancing. The governor suggested that eateries provide curbside food service, delivery, and pick-up. To ensure his staff and customers are practicing safe measures—including social distancing, washing hands, keeping the entire restaurant clean—Big Sky customers can call in their order for pickup or delivery. When the customer arrives, an employee takes the food outside to the customer. As a “thank you for the support,” customers that order take-out automatically receive a 15 percent discount on their meal. Holt also started creating family meal packages. For $50, a family can take home a quart of gumbo yaya, Rutiz Farms papas bravas and crispy cauliflower, green salad, cornbread, and salsa verde dipping sauce. “Maybe they’ll have food for a couple of days and they can stay home longer,” he said. Holt isn’t worried about his business; he’s worried about his employees and his responsibility to continue taking care of his customers. Given the current situation, he’s had to reduce his entire staff to minimum wage. “I’m responsible for the 40 employees I have and they mean a lot to me. I’m in there working with them, right next to them, and we’re doing this together,” Holt said. Uplifting businesses and connecting them with the community has always been the role of the SLO Downtown Association, CEO Bettina Swigger said. She said the association has had to

switch gears as San Luis Obispo observes the shelter-at-home executive order. Sixty percent of the association’s time was spent planning and executing largescale events, she said, but it won’t be doing that for the foreseeable future. The team is now putting all their resources into marketing and communications to tell a business’ story and keep the community connected with them.

Most vulnerable SLO County secures motels and trailers for homeless as nonprofits call for donations amid COVID-19 crisis

W

hile California residents have been ordered to stay at home to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), that’s simply not an option for the thousands of people throughout the state who are living without homes in the first place. The homeless are among the most vulnerable populations to COVID-19, and as their need for shelter, sanitation, and services becomes even more critical, service providers throughout San Luis Obispo County are working to adapt to historically challenging circumstances. “We are trying to respond. We don’t have all the answers, and we don’t have all the supplies,” said Janna Nichols, executive director of the Five Cities Homeless Coalition (5CHC), which serves South County. “We’re trying as a community to rise to this challenge as best we can.” Shelters and warming centers—from the El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) in Atascadero, to 40 Prado in SLO, to the LifePoint Church warming center in Grover Beach—are slammed and operating under new protocols that include mandatory temperature checks, an increased focus on hygiene and sanitation, and social distancing. “We’re doing everything we can,” said Grace McIntosh, deputy director of the Community Action Partnership of SLO County (CAPSLO), which operates the 40 Prado shelter in SLO. “We are trying to do our best in terms of keeping things sanitary and clean.” But they’re lacking the necessary supplies to effectively do so. There’s a widespread shortage of protective gear, like N-95 masks and gloves, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, thermometer covers, food, sleeping bags, volunteers, and money. Local homeless nonprofits will need the community’s support to successfully navigate this pandemic, leaders said. “If you’re hoarding at home, even if you’re not hoarding and you can spare it, you’ve got to share,” Nichols said.

“Virtually every service provider for the homeless is in the same situation. We’re going to be woefully short.” While there had not been a case of COVID-19 identified in the SLO County homeless population as of press time, state and county leaders are preparing for that event. On March 19, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced $150 million in emergency state funds to assist counties with protecting the homeless from COVID-19. SLO County received $500,000 of that aid on March 20, and it’s since entered into contracts to receive four trailers and gain access to four local motels. Those shelter resources will be used to help quarantine homeless individuals who are exhibiting symptoms and need to be tested for the virus. Combined, the four motels deliver 155 beds and are located in each region of the county—north, south, central, and coast. The homeless nonprofits, like 5CHC, will be responsible for referring clients to the motels, with the goal of separating those with COVID-19 symptoms from those without symptoms, according to county officials. “We’re still figuring this all out,” Nichols, of 5CHC, explained. “We’ve been asked [by the county] if we have volunteers who are available to check on people [in the motels] remotely via telephone. We’ve been asked if we could deliver meals. We’ve been asked if we could provide hygiene products. … We’ve said yes to all of these.” The four trailers secured by the county are split between ECHO and 40 Prado. Set up outside the two nonprofits’ facilities, the trailers will allow them to isolate individuals who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms and need further medical evaluation. 40 Prado is benefitting from its partnership with the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, whose medical staff is already on-site and able to conduct evaluations and collect samples for COVID-19 testing, according to

REINFORCEMENTS San Luis Obispo County recently acquired four trailers to help quarantine individuals at homeless shelters who have symptoms of COVID-19. Two are at the El Camino Homeless Organization in Atascadero.

CAPSLO’s McIntosh. Two individuals at 40 Prado had been tested for COVID-19 as of March 23 and both results came back negative. “It is probably the single most important thing right now,” McIntosh said of CAPSLO’s partnership with Community Health Centers. In addition to setting up a system that can handle symptomatic homeless individuals, service providers are also scrambling to identify shelter options for the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. In South County, 5CHC and SLO County Parks have collaborated to open 10 campground sites to serve as a safe parking and sleeping area for “our most vulnerable folks,” Nichols said. “We’re obviously very concerned about those who have underlying medical conditions,” she said. Another important component of the campgrounds is their access to restrooms, Nichols said, which has been a major problem for the homeless made much worse by the COVID-19 public facility closures. In Atascadero, ECHO CEO Wendy Lewis said that the nonprofit has expanded its public shower program in the wake of COVID-19. It’s now open every weekday, Monday through Friday, from 3 to 5 p.m. ECHO has gone to great lengths to address sanitation and social distancing in its programs, Lewis said, setting up cone markers at 6 feet apart and mandating health checks and extra

handwashing. Its public meal program is now “to-go” (except for residential clients). “So far, nobody has had any symptoms,” Lewis said on March 23, “so that’s been a silver lining.” Lewis noted that she is concerned about the homeless community in Paso Robles, since the northernmost city lacks a shelter or even a warming center to open during rainy and cold weather. ECHO, which recently expanded some services to Paso Robles, is exploring options to increase shelter there during the COVID-19 crisis. “We’re working very closely with the city and the county and the state to try to find places for people to go in that area as well,” Lewis said. “Those folks who are unhoused really are lacking vital lifesaving resources.” Paso Cares, a Paso-based nonprofit that serves free dinners to the homeless across from the fairgrounds, will continue its meal program, but in a to-go fashion. “They can’t hang out there,” Paso Cares’ Treasurer Jack Philips said. “It’s too bad because one of the big socialization things is for them to hang out together. They’re very alone.” All nonprofits serving the homeless during this pandemic need the community’s support—through donations, supplies, and/or volunteers. To find the most up-to-date information about what’s needed most, visit 5chc.org, echoshelter. org, and capslo.org/40prado. “We are in this together,” Nichols said. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

t Sleeping Tiger Fitness and Martial Arts, it’s not unusual for workout classes to involve partner work and up-close-and-personal combat training. “So when the social distancing regulations came out,” owner Nathan Zimmerman told New Times, “it made things a little bit difficult.” Zimmerman, like so many other business owners, is being forced to adapt to a society filled with consumers who are staying in. With a statewide “shelter at home” officially in effect, nonessential businesses are shuttered and Californians are being encouraged to stay home as much as possible—all in the name of slowing the spread of COVID-19. Many organizations, Sleeping Tiger Fitness included, have to figure out new ways to connect with consumers and bring revenue in. That’s where Kick-it Points comes in. Kick-it Points is a free, SLO-based app that’s been around since 2018. Before the coronavirus pandemic broke out, Kick-it Points allowed businesses to award coupons and deals to residents for completing certain social activities in the real world. Businesses choose what activities they want to encourage and the deals they want to offer, and those show up on an interactive map inside the app. You can click on different points of interest, such as Mother’s Tavern, where you can you can get a dollar off any draft beer if you take a stroll downtown. Zimmerman joined Kick-it Points last summer. He loved the idea of encouraging people to get out in their communities, while also incentivizing them to try out new businesses that they might not usually consider. At Sleeping Tiger Fitness, Zimmerman offered free T-shirts to members who completed certain activities through Kickit Points and a free week of classes to nonmembers. But now the whole Kick-it Points mission—socializing—is irrelevant because of COVID-19. So its team is adapting, too. Kick-it points is now allowing businesses to offer coupons and deals to users who complete social distancing activities, like doing an athome workout or going on a walk alone. Now through Kick-it Points, Sleeping Tiger Fitness is offering a 40 percent discount on all its online fitness classes, which Zimmerman just recently launched because of coronavirus. “It allows us to reach people from a distance,” Zimmerman said. “I think it’s really important, especially with everything locked down, that people find ways to stay active, and keep interacting, and keep supporting each other.” When public officials started cracking down on social distancing a few weeks ago, it left a lot of business owners with little choice but to change their business models in some way, according to Brett Foreman, the founder of Kick-it Points. And with things changing so quickly, customers don’t really know which businesses are open, partly open, or completely closed. Kick-it is an easy way for businesses to let their customers know that they’re up and running, Foreman said, while also offering discounts and deals at a time when a lot of community

members are struggling financially. Kick-it Points is partnered with about 150 businesses right now, and while Foreman said most of those are in San Luis Obispo, he’s accepting businesses from Cambria to Santa Maria. The coronavirus coupon redemption model is running essentially on the honor system. Customers will be able to set their own goals, and once they’ve completed the activities, they can use coupons at a business of their choice. What’s most important right now to Foreman is keeping customers and businesses in contact, while also keeping the community safe. “We’re kind of like a connective tissue in the city where if you want to support a local business, if you just go through the platform it’s an easy way to see what businesses are out there and what deals they’re offering,” Foreman told New Times. “As a business, it’s a free solution right now.”

Commentary

BY SHARON JONES

GOP duality A little time in quarantine led me to respond to ‘Oh, those stoopid conservatives!’

I

would like to respond to “pissy” attorney John Donegan’s opinion piece concerning his difficulty reconciling what he calls the liberals’ two caricatures of the Trump voters and conservatives in general: the deplorables and the 1 percent oligarchs (“Oh, those stoopid conservatives!” March 12). He writes that they are rarely mentioned at the same time, seemingly because few oligarchs live in shabby trailers in Appalachia. I am going to attempt to address this. And based on his definition of an “educated” person, I think I can, even though I learned my simple math in a public grade school, graduated debt free from a state college, and spent my spring breaks visiting family and friends in my hometown ... not the Caribbean. From a position in the middle, without a strong emotional attachment to either the conservative or liberal philosophy, one can reconcile the Trump voters’ duality. Trump voters I know don’t label themselves as conservatives and liberals. They don’t think of all the Trump voters as knuckle-dragging conservatives. If they give them a political label other than “Trumpers,” it is Republicans; after all Trump ran as a Republican, and the GOP machinery supports him. Let’s face it, the GOP body has two arms. The right arm consists of conservatives,

HODIN

whose grasping hand is the 1 percent clutching more and more of the economic pie. The remainder of the right arm is the rank-and-file who Donegan correctly believes the liberals see as intelligent, lawabiding, self-supporting taxpayers who don’t need to be cared for by the government. Historically, both parts of this right arm shared many conservative principles: small government, state rights, balanced budget, free trade, a strong military. However, more recently, it seems to have dwindled down to the shared economic view focusing on lower tax rates and more tax loopholes. Their mantra, of trickle-down economics—a rising tide that lifts all boats; pull yourself up by the boot straps—is being chanted more and more frequently while standing on the backs of others. When the conservative arm suffered a big time defeat with Barry Goldwater, who lost his bid for president in 1964, they knew they had to expand the ranks of the GOP. They focused on a culture war to do so, thus building up the other arm, the cultural arm, of the GOP. The civil rights movement and the Great Society brought the Dixiecrats on board. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley launched the war by loosening his police force on the hippies and anti-war activists, followed shortly by the National Guard shooting of Kent State student protestors. Roe v. Wade stirred up the anti-abortion sentiments. Women’s liberation let loose cries of “FemiNazis.” Gay pride fueled more prejudice and caused foot dragging on the treatment for HIV. Sept. 11, 2001, brought out the Muslim haters. Increased gun violence in the streets and schools strengthen the influence of the NRA and its supporters.

All of these movements added cultural war soldiers to the second arm of the GOP. And then, in 2008, just when we faced the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, a black man was elected to the White House! OMG, the conservative senators threw a hissy fit, McConnell declared not to cooperate, and they sat on their hands for eight years. This is the GOP that Donald Trump found in 2016, adding his strain of narcissism to the mix, making it more acceptable for the bedsheets, torches, and swastikas to come out from the bushes. He appealed to and brought on board a sector of the electorate whose economic situation was precarious: cost of living increasing, wages stagnating, and job security decreasing. He was cheered by people who felt ignored, put upon, beat down, and treated unfairly by the existing system. Trump promised to be their savior and they believed him. The liberals don’t view all Trump voters as mouth-breathing dimwits. They understand why many Trumpers would choose a populist leader, but why Trump? This is what the liberals don’t get. To them, he is the most obvious con man and crook who has come down the pike in decades. This might be where the liberals contemptuous tone of voice arises. Strangers, maybe, but how could their own family and friends be taken in by this man? What are they getting out of this? If what they want is to stick their collective thumb in the eye of the government or wave their middle finger at the establishment, he does it. If they want someone to crap all over the norms and traditions of political life, he does that, too. Trump delivers the rhetoric to gain the support of cultural soldiers but provides little substance in return. Can’t they see this? Don’t they realize that all the economic goodies have been handed over to the

conservative right arm of the GOP body? Thus, the duality of the GOP. The rich and self-supporting party conservatives recruited soldiers of all stripes for their culture war. Donald Trump, the billionaire, con man, and perpetual liar, created a canteen where he could entertain the troops. He added Kool-Aid to the menu, placed neon flashing lights on the walls and on the roof. This way he can distract people both inside and out. I could do hit a job on the libs/ Dems too, but Donegan has done this already. Instead, if he is a man with truly conservative beliefs, not just a cultural recruit, I’d suggest he encourage his fellow travelers to start their own conservative movement. They may not be as politically strong but they might be more politically honest. Maybe even be a role model for the real liberals. ∆ Sharon Jones is self-quarantined with too much time on her hands.

We still need public access to government meetings

Much attention is rightly being given, in our current crisis, to damage to the economy and how interrupted livelihoods might be restored or mitigated. What has gotten almost no attention, and needs it, is damage to our constitutional rights, and a much-needed conversation LETTERS continued page 13


Opinion LETTERS from page 12

on how to ensure their restoration when medically possible. The right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances slipped away in an instant with no apparent notice. I understand the overriding need to prohibit all gatherings at this time, but, knowing that for virtually every political and social advance in our nation’s history the exercise of this right has been central to its struggle for success, I watch in vain for assertions of its value and of the need to plan for its restoration. We may, indeed, face an ambiguous period during which the danger of the currently rampaging virus will fade, but not disappear. Where is the balance point between epidemiological risk and the risk of losing our liberty? Where is the line between needed precaution and convenient pretext? We need to be having these conversations! A corollary loss has been our ability to participate in the decisions of local governments and state bodies, as guaranteed by the Brown Act and the Bagley Keene Act, now that physical attendance at, and participation in, their meetings is impossible. Some bodies, such as our SLO County Board of Supervisors, are making attempts, however juryrigged and untested, to provide some semblance of customary public process, for which I am grateful. Others, such as the CSU Board of Trustees, with a meeting next Tuesday, have yet to provide any way for the public to participate—a lack that could become a major concern if, as indicated by Peter Johnson’s story “Town-gown 2035” (March 19), the Cal Poly Administration is dead set on ramming through, at the CSU Board’s subsequent May meeting, a Master Plan that will straitjacket the campus’s future in a pre-crisis mold at a time when every assumption about the future of the system needs to be rethought. What is the plan for full recovery of the Brown Act and the Bagley Keene Act? What is the plan for full recovery of the right of the people to peaceably assemble? There will be no plan unless the people assert the value of these rights! Let the conversation begin! Eric Greening Atascadero

A little tranquility

I want to send sincere thanks and kudos to Trader Joe’s in Templeton for being an island of tranquility in this nightmare. Shopping there this afternoon was an enjoyable, peaceful experience. They have the courage to limit the amount of items customers can buy, thus ensuring full shelves, and they are also limiting the number of people in the store at one time, protecting both their employees and their customers. But most of all, as usual, everyone was helpful and friendly and cheerful—a real bonus these days! So thank you, Trader Joe’s, for proving businesses can be caring and careful at the same time.

As opposed to the White House, which has chosen to be quite deceitful about the realities of our virus crisis.

Policital repurcussions

On March 15, 2020, the Santa Maria Times published a column by Andy Caldwell who deliberately understated the effect of the COVID-19 virus on the American public. The Republican candidate for the 24th Congressional District followed a long list of conservative lawmakers who have been gaslighting the public for weeks regarding the coronavirus. It started weeks ago when the president, at a rally in South Carolina, called the global pandemic a “Democrat” hoax. In an interview with CNBC on Jan. 22, Trump claimed his administration had the coronavirus outbreak in the United States “Totally under control.” Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn tweeted a photo of him drinking a Corona Extra at what appeared to be an empty bar. California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes encouraged people to dine out even though health experts were urging social distancing. These are only a few examples of Republican politicians making light of the situation, not to mention Fox News, conservative talk radio, and other rightwing media lying to America. In an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted from March 11 through 13, only 40 percent of self-described Republicans believed the worst is yet to come. Only 30 percent of Republicans planned to stop large gatherings. Only 23 percent of Republicans were going to cancel or reschedule travel plans. The coronavirus does not discriminate. If every American does not take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously, we will never get this outbreak under control. Our response to this crisis will determine whether the nation plunges into another depression rather than a recession We need a representative in Washington who is focused on solving problems and bringing people together during a reallife national emergency. The last thing our country needs is another Republican congressman delaying the response by burying their heads in the sand because of political ramifications! Jose Luis Castellanos Santa Maria

Buy Restaurant Bonds and Support Small Businesses in SLO County! Purchasing gift cards from our local businesses can help stimulate the economy now.

W

ith capacity limitations imposed and now with orders that restaurants can only serve takeout or delivery, our county’s restaurant industry has been among the hardest hit by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. People are being encouraged to stay home and away from crowds and public dining rooms, some restaurants and cafes have already been forced to dial back hours in response to the decrease in business, while others have shut down entirely. With restaurants facing an uncertain immediate future, one way local diners can support their favorite restaurants is by purchasing gift cards - or what some are calling “Restaurant Bonds” - similar to “war bonds” during WWI and II. Whether given as a gift or kept for future meals, gift cards can act as a microloan to restaurants to provide much-needed immediate cash. Many restaurants sell gift cards online, allowing customers to offer their support without having to leave home. There has never been a more important time to support our neighborhood’s culinary scene. Restaurants are emptying out and small business owners are seeing up to an 80% drop-off in customers. Restaurants already work off razor-thin profit margins, but the COVID-19 pandemic is a test like no other. For now, the best thing our friends and neighbors in the community can do to help is to order takeout or buy gift cards to ensure at least some income during this difficult time. If this trend continues, many of our beloved businesses will suffer greatly but we have the opportunity to help. Buy gift cards (Restaurant Bonds). Restaurants collect gift card revenue as soon as the card is purchased, then mark it as redeemed once the user applies it to a bill. If you are in a position to buy a gift card and sit on it for a while, you will be helping your local favorite get through a tough time. Opt for carryout or delivery. Many restaurants are opting for curbside pickup or have pick-up areas where you can dash in, get your food and leave. Please show your support. Let’s do this together. Restuarants can add their business to our online SLO County Food to Go directory by visiting our website.

him in German, “Hospital, FAST!” As my unit was preparing to join a convoy heading to the field, I began receiving reports about her condition and status such as, “Captain Fonzi, your wife is at the gate,” only to discover that she was already at the hospital. The alert was soon canceled, just another drill designed to cause Army spouses lost sleep. I connected with my wife just in time at the delivery room, handing an orderly my rifle and web gear as I donned a hospital gown, quickly entering the room just in time to see the lady doc field a great catch as my second daughter was born. The Cold War almost became a very hot war that October with international affairs already tense. American Rangers parachuted on to Point Salinas airfield in Grenada, encountering anti-aircraft fire so heavy that they elected to go in low, under 600 feet for the jump. Reserve parachutes would not be able to deploy in time if their main chute failed, so they left them behind, relying solely upon their main chute. Terrorists in Lebanon also blew up the Marine barracks in a suicide attack, killing 242 Marines, while also attacking the American and French embassies. Finally, that October, the Soviets nearly launched a nuclear attack on Europe, their aging leadership misreading a communications exercise for a nuclear strike on their homeland. In 1987, the stock market crashed, terrifying millions of investors and forcing my cousin’s son to re-open his hot dog stand on New York streets after he lost his stock-broker job. He eventually recovered, but the event left emotional scars on a generation that had never experienced such an event. Today’s events make one yearn for the “stability” of times past. We’re facing a pandemic of fear, a falling stock market with Main Street in jeopardy, and a disrupted distribution system for essentials, like toilet paper. The “just-

iven the events of the last few weeks, I find myself looking back to those “good old days.” For instance, in elementary school, it seemed that there was always a classmate wearing braces on their legs, a legacy of polio before the vaccine became widespread and mandatory. I also remember really cool TV commercials with cowboys riding the range and lighting up their Marlboro cigarette after a hard day’s work. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized that men in their 40s didn’t have to have a retching cough and eject phlegm out of the car window as did my father (a two-pack-a-day man). Card parties my mom attended (with kids exiled to the basement to play with Lionel Trains) had a smoke cloud that reached down to the height of a card table, which held all the good stuff, like chips, dip, etc. Learning to “low-crawl” to that table without being asphyxiated became a childhood skill as important as skipping rocks over a pond. Yes, such fond memories … the Marlboro Man died of cancer sometime in the ’70s or ’80s, and my dad quit smoking cold turkey when his doctor told him he had a choice: Quit smoking or get his personal affairs in order. Of course there were many other fond memories. We were an Air Force family with my dad frequently off to faraway places: He worked a lot in research and development, and in those days, long-range endurance flights for heavy bombers were the norm. Once, he went to work in the morning and returned in late evening, handing me a few stones for my rock collection from his brief stop in Greenland. Then there was the Cold War, which placed nuclear-armed bombers on “ready alert” on a runway about a mile from our home. Nobody dug bomb shelters in our community during the civil defense craze as it was pointless; we lived at groundzero, and, in a nuclear war, it would all be over very quickly.

In October 1983, I was a company commander in Germany. On a cold, dark morning, an alert ordered me to immediately report to my unit. Tremors from tanks rumbling down the cobblestone streets shook the building. Combat units began deploying to their assigned defense positions, expecting an imminent attack from the Soviet Union. The bad guys had about 50,000 tanks forward-deployed across Eastern Europe along with thousands of tactical and strategic nuclear weapons. Our job was to dissuade them by ensuring that our response would make such an attack a very bad idea. That morning, my wife, expecting our third child, naturally went into labor and terrified a German taxi driver as she told

Our energy independence is also threatened by a Saudi-Russian price feud which has the Saudis dumping oil on the market, crashing our shale-oil industry as oil prices collapse. Don’t cheer too much as high prices and gas shortages may follow. Every generation faces crisis and survives somewhat battered.

The Shredder

Slow your roll C OVID-19 Insanity Syndrome has arrived, and it’s not pretty. If you see a mother and child walking together, you don’t need to call the SLO County Public Health Department and report it to Public Health Director Penny Borenstein. Calm down. People who live together are allowed to take a walk next to one another. Borenstein’s plate is full—there’s no room for your judgy, irrational paranoia. If people inadvertently enter your 6-foot social distancing bubble, you don’t need to curse them out. You won’t instantly and automatically contract the novel coronavirus. Your attitude actually makes you immune to COVID-19. (Just kidding. You definitely have it now, asshat. Karma, baby.) If you see nurses wearing scrubs in public, you don’t need to scowl at them like they’re plague carriers trying to French kiss your newborn baby. They need to be able to buy gas and groceries too, and they’re working their asses off to help people. Plus, they’re probably more sanitized than you! Chill out. Speaking of groceries, if your checker touches her face and just keeps on checking your groceries, don’t go berserk, especially since you’re about to punch your PIN into a keypad that’s been touched by the filthy butt scratcher who used it right before you. Wipe down your goods and wash your hands when you get

home, and don’t touch your … too late. You touched your face. You’re definitely doomed. The point is there’s a difference between vigilance and vigilantism. Use your common sense, which doesn’t seem to be as common as we once thought. On the other hand, if you see people purposely flouting the county’s public health orders—for instance, your methcooking neighbors hosting a naked kegger or someone walking door-to-door having coughing fits on doorknobs—the county has now set up an Enforcement Hotline at (805) 788-2222 (operating Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., because who would break the rules after hours or on the weekend, amirite?). Technically, the hotline seems to be focused more on businesses than individuals. “We want everyone to voluntarily comply with executive orders, but if a local business refuses to comply, we will take action,” SLO County Emergency Services Director Wade Horton said on the County Public Health Department website. “We do not want to do that. We need to work together as a community to slow the spread of this disease.” Non-essential businesses that refuse to comply can receive a $1,000 fine and up to six months in jail. Hmm. Should I keep working and keep the money flowing

and a roof overhead or take a free six-month vacation complete with three hots and a cot? Tough decision. “We hope local businesses will do what’s right for our community and follow our orders to protect public health,” Horton added. The newly opened Pismo Preserve hoped that hikers would also follow social distancing orders but instead it got shut down after multiple complaints of people congregating in the parking lot and near the bathroom area. What part of social distancing don’t you get? Come on, people! Get it together! “Oh, but we’re healthy hikers so we won’t get the plague,” said people who will totally get the plague if they keep this shit up. Also, thanks, selfish jerks. Now I’ll have to wait until after the apocalypse to hike the preserve. Hopefully I’ll still be alive, being a small office appliance and all. Neither COVID-19 nor I care if you’re young; you’re not safe either. LA Mayor Eric Garcetti told the LA Times, “It’s coming. The peak is not here yet. The peak will be bad. People will lose their lives.” The article went on to explain that someone under 18 might have died of COVID-19 in LA County. Did you hear that, parents? I know your kids are bored. I know you’ve given up limiting their screen time. I know your children are already at risk of death because you

want to murder the little brats. Even so, keep them away from their peers. Let them play Fortnite with their friends remotely. Introduce them to the joys of spin the bottle via Zoom. Virtual teenage shenanigans are the least of your worries right now. I know for some people all these directives seem like overkill. It doesn’t help when our orange Commander and Thief, Donald J. Trump, frequently downplays the severity of the situation or contradicts his health experts, some of whom have damaged their sight from rolling their eyes at tRump’s inanities, most recently his desire to have the U.S. “opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” which—in case you’ve lost track of what day it is—is just about two weeks away. Health experts have made it abundantly clear that to slow the disease and not overwhelm our health care system, we’ll need to shelter in place for months, not weeks. Trumplethinskin is more worried about the economy than people dying, as is Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who said grandparents would be willing to die to save the economy for their grandchildren. Really, Dan? You first. I have an idea. Stay inside when possible. Social distance. Wash your hands. Make your kids read more. Try not to die (except Dan). ∆

hat do you do when your income stream comes to a grinding halt, but you have all kinds of time on your hands? Well, if you’re a musician, you do what musicians do all the time— proverbial woodshedding, which in the case of New Times Music Award winner Dante Marsh and The Vibe Setters was already in the works. They’ve been preparing their video entry for NPR’s 2020 Tiny Desk Concert, which you can view on YouTube. The video for their song “Above Me” is pretty simple—the four band members are set up in a sunroom with green hills and the ocean in the background, and they’re playing the song live. It’s pretty amazing, and it’d be so cool to see a local band get exposure from NPR’s excellent series. “We finished and released the video for NPR’s Tiny Desk,” executive producer Ryan Orr explained, “and now we’re planning on going into the studio with Dante and the band in the coming weeks and we’re really excited about the future of this band.” Orr also runs SLO Brew Rock. “I had to cancel all concerts through May and am hoping summertime isn’t completely out of the question, too,” he added. “We will be ready to jump back in quick once the dust settles, that’s for sure!” I’m with ya! Can’t wait until live shows are safe to proceed again!

Somnium is still coming!

“Since Record Store Day has been postponed, we’re pushing up our record release date to Wednesday, April 1, in hopes of providing some at-home entertainment for people during the quarantine situation,” Joe Schwab of SLO Town alt-rockers Four Day Beard said. Somnium is a follow-up to their debut self-titled album “with digital distribution on major streaming platforms as well as CD and a limited pressing on vinyl,” Schwab explained. A snazzy blue vinyl, you can preorder it on their website, fourdabeard.com! They’d planned to release the album and do a live in-store performance at Boo Boo Records on Saturday, June 20, for Record Store Day, but instead they decided to speed the music into your locked-down lives, describing the album as “a nocturnal dreamscape of overdriven swirling guitars juxtaposed with soft, sweet, and sometimes smoky deep vocals.” A few singles are available to check out online, and they’re hooky little nuggets! They describe their first single, “Chasing Birds,” as “a brooding requiem of connection, love, and mortality.” It’s got some great harmony vocals.

‘ABOVE ME’ Dante Marsh and his band The Vibe Setters recently released the video they made to enter NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series. See it on YouTube.

“Somnium represents a new chapter for us in many ways,” the band said in press materials. “While it isn’t a complete departure from our last album, the sound has definitely evolved, covering new sonic territory. Our new lineup is solid, and we’ve settled in nicely as a three piece.”

Broke but happy

“I want to share what’s going on in my world as a musician and technician,” Tyson Leonard of EDM act Tropo emailed me. “Things started falling apart two weeks ago and by last Thursday, March 12, my whole world was canceled: several festivals, two tours, and a music cruise. “I immediately began to brainstorm on what to do and how to adapt,” he continued. “Nothing was coming to me at first, so I began to get my music gear and studio space organized. I set up my studio in a way that made it obvious I wasn’t going anywhere for a while. Right away I was inspired to write music.” Songs Leonard had started but abandoned immediately “came to life,” he said. The violinist, who first found acclaim in the local band Rain Fur Rent, connected with other musicians “to get the ball rolling on remote collaborations.” Now he hopes to have a new album—all recorded remotely with other musicians— ready to release by the end of April. I’ll keep you informed! “Another opportunity that came to mind is live-stream performance,” Leonard said. “I’ve been seeing several friends give this a shot and successfully fill their virtual Vimeo tip jar!

excited that I too am about to launch my own virtual concert series.” He’s also been mastering other musicians’ recordings at his home studio, so if you’re a musician in need of such services, connect through his Facebook page—facebook.com/tropo.musik—where he’ll also be offering a live-stream performance on Saturday, March 28, at 7:30 p.m. If you’re digging the sound, Leonard’s virtual tip jar can be found at venmo.com under tropo_musica and paypal.me/tropo. “In conclusion,” Leonard said, “I’m broke, but happy. I am hopeful for our future. Stay safe y’all.”

It’s three days of camping, music, yoga, and soaking in the natural 100-degree hot spring. Hawley says he’s “still hoping for the

Spring Soak,” but for now he’s been “digging into unfinished songs.” “So far I’ve finished about five that just needed a little more time and attention,” Hawley explained. “I’ve done two Facebook Live broadcasts, and I’ve gotten back into running since the yoga studios I go to are closed.” He plans to do another live set on Instagram this Friday, March 27, at 3 p.m., available at instragram.com/ christopherhawleyrollers/. I recommend you draw a bath, take a soak, and listen to this Hawley roller! Stay safe, everybody!

Paso teacher offers free art lessons, safety tips through YouTube

Stormy Capalare, a Virginia Peterson Elementary School teacher, is currently offering free art lessons through her YouTube account. The series is titled Art with Me and includes 26 videos (ideally to last 26 days, with one lesson per day). The videos cover simple, in-home art lessons and activities. Other videos on Capalare’s channel cover health and safety recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), proactive measures from the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, and general hygiene tips for children and adults. One video, for example, uses visual examples to illustrate how fast germs can spread (using glitter and lotion as an analogy). Capalare hopes to use these kinds of demonstrations to keep children informed in an engaging way. In other videos, Capalare discusses respecting our resources as well, including tips on water and paper-towel usage. To find Capalare’s channel or for more info, search for Stormy Capalare on YouTube.

SLO Rep cancels all productions through mid-May

In adherence with COVID19 mitigation measures and recommendations from the CDC, all San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre (SLO Rep) performances have been canceled through May 11. The SLO Rep board and staff made the difficult decision to cancel its productions of The Laramie Project and Mr. Burns: A Post-electric Play (presented by Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Readings). The company’s Academy of Creative Theatre spring classes and spring break camp have also been canceled. However, SLO Rep’s production of Every Brilliant Thing has been postponed rather than canceled, and is currently rescheduled to open May 12. Given the rapidly evolving situation, tickets for the show will not be available for purchase until the end of March, at the earliest, according to SLO Rep. Those who already hold tickets to the aforementioned canceled or postponed productions will be contacted by SLO Rep staff regarding their refund options. For more details, call (805) 781-3889 or visit slorep.org.

Coast to attend Cuesta College and later transferred to Cal Poly. She has called SLO home for more than 30 years, and since her college days she’s been a climate change activist and community organizer, before she was elected to the office she’s held since 2016. Though sing-alongs aren’t part of Harmon’s job description as mayor, they’ve been a part of her life longer than she’s been in office. And she has every intention of continuing her online show—helping preschoolers burn off energy by singing and dancing to classic children’s songs—until the end of the shelter-in-place order, she said. “I’m streaming it live to let people know I’m here for you in this moment,” Harmon said. “It’s a very stressful time. I want to honor that, but I also want to recognize how people are stepping up. Look how much love is really coming to the surface.” ∆ Arts Writer Rebecca Howes is wiggling her waggles away.

PARTNERS? Sarah Breedlove, aka Madam C.J. Walker (Octavia Spencer), is married to Charles James Walker (Blair Underwood) and begins to build her black hair care empire, but as time progresses, their marriage becomes strained, in Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J.

She soon discovers “hosts” are second-class citizens, and in a parallel storyline, we’re introduced to a new character, Caleb Nichols (Aaron Paul), a construction worker and former soldier, who’s also a petty criminal. The first episode is mostly a setup for what’s to come. Dolores is on a mission to find who’s really running Westworld behind the scenes. In the second season—and you should really see seasons 1 and 2 before jumping into 3 or you’ll be totally lost, and yes, the cost of an HBO Now subscription is worth it—we discover the sneaky element of the park was “decoding” the paying guests, so those in control behind the scenes could replace these rich and powerful people with androids under their control. It’s hard to know where this season’s heading, but judging from the first two, it’ll be a wild ride. (68 min. episodes) ∆ —Glen

D. Rockefeller (Frank Moore), at the time the wealthiest man in America. Blair Underwood is great as the put-upon Charles James Walker, Sarah’s third husband, as is former SNL star Garrett Morris as Walker’s wise father Cleophus. It’s an interesting story given enough space to breathe life into this little known (at least to me) part of history. I did find slightly off-putting an ongoing fantasy element interjected into the episodes meant to illustrate some of Sarah’s demons, but if you’re cooped up at home, this is definitely worth your time. Anna I too found the fantasy element a bit odd. It just didn’t seem to fit with the style of the rest of the series. Perhaps it didn’t come to life as much on screen as it did on the page. Lelia’s a loving but somewhat foolish best friend to her mom, but nevertheless her biggest supporter. Their dynamic works, and while Sarah is at times frustrated by Lelia’s flighty nature and not so thought-out choice in a husband, her love for her daughter is palpable. Sarah’s a strong woman who’s very much finished with taking crap from anyone, her husband included. She takes herself seriously and expects others to as well. It’s both uplifting and frustrating, but definitely worth a viewing. Now that almost all of us will be homebound, there will be plenty of time to catch up on all the new streaming content. Make sure Self Made makes it on your queue. ∆ Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and freelancer Anna Starkey write Split Screen. Glen compiles streaming listings. Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

TV-MA fate becomes intertwined with the Warrens— Where’s it showing? Hulu poor single mom Mia (Kerry Washington) and teenage daughter, Pearl (Lexi Underwood). It’s a story of race and class, but also a mystery. The miniseries opens as the Richardsons’ beautiful home burning to the ground, with most people suspecting the Richardsons’ rebellious and troubled daughter, Izzy (Megan Scott). However, there’s something off about Mia, an artist who moves around constantly, forcing her daughter, Pearl, to start over again at every stop. Pearl befriends Elena’s youngest son, Moody (Gavin Lewis), but pines for her older son, Trip (Jordan Elsess). Clearly something somewhere goes wrong, and I, for one, look forward to the series unfolding and the mystery being laid bare. ∆ —Glen

Small farms keep going

SLO County farms are coping as restaurants close and social distancing is changing everything

I

t’s awfully quiet outside. But SLO County farmers have not stopped the plows. Checking in with our local food growers, many reported a huge increase in CSA boxes, meat boxes, and farm stand sales. Others—producers of luxury food items like organic olive oil—found their online and storefront food traffic came to a halt. Local growers are making the necessary adjustments during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you think about it, farmers are always reinventing themselves—they either have the weather on their side, or not. Jerry Rutiz, owner of Rutiz Family Farms in Arroyo Grande, said it’s been chaotic since the shelter-in-place orders began. He said he sells 95 percent of his organic produce through his food stand on The Pike, serving mostly people who live within a 5-mile radius. He sells to a handful of restaurants such as Ember, Spoon Trade, and Apple Farm, and runs a Friday pickup for CSA box subscribers, which has become more popular recently, especially with seniors.

Farmers’ markets in SLO County

On March 19, the state issued an executive order telling all Californians to shelter at home, meaning only essential government functions will continue, while essential businesses, such as farmers’ markets, are encouraged to remain open. However, as of March 13, SLO downtown farmers’ market has been canceled until April. Market organizers ask the public to practice social distancing, let the farmers get your product for you, and stay home if you are sick. Here are the locations and hours of the farmers’ markets near you: • Baywood/Los Osos: Mondays from 2 to 4:30 p.m. (2nd and Santa Maria Streets by the Bay) • Paso Robles: Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon (Spring and 12th Street) • San Luis Obispo Farm Supply: Tuesdays from 3 to 6 p.m. (resumed March 24) (224 Tank Farm Road) • Arroyo Grande: Wednesdays from 8:30 to11 a.m. (Smart & Final parking lot) • Atascadero: Wednesdays from 3 to 6 p.m. (Sunken Gardens) • Morro Bay: Thursdays from 2 to 4:30 p.m. (Spencer’s parking lot) • Avila Beach: Fridays from 4 to 8 p.m. (starts April 15) • Cambria: Fridays from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. (Main Street) • Cayucos: Fridays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (resumes in Summer) • San Luis Obispo: Saturdays from 8 to 10:45 a.m. (Madonna and Dalidio) • Arroyo Grande: Saturday from noon to 2:30 p.m. (Olohan Alley) • Morro Bay: Saturdays from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. (Main Street and Elena) • Templeton: Saturdays from 9 to 12:30 p.m. (Town Park, 6th and Crocker streets) • Paso Robles: Saturdays from 9 to 1 p.m. (Downtown City Park, Spring Street and 12th) For up-to-date information on the markets, visit their Facebook pages; their websites: slocountyfarmers.org, readyslo.org, pinterest.com/slocorarmers; and Instagram pages: @northcountyfarmersmarkets and @farmersmarketsofslo.

“People seemed like they were buying lots of stuff,” Rutiz said about the week of March 16. In addition to his produce, people can also buy See Canyon fruit, bakery bread, and locally ranched beef, chicken, and pork at his stand. To keep cross contamination from happening, Rutiz said he eliminated selfservice, placing all his produce behind a table. One of his staff, in gloves, was taking orders and packing the veggies in a box for the customer, while the money station was manned by another staff person. Rutiz has always only taken cash or check, but he cut the coins out of the equation when he heard that coins carry more germs than bills. Rutiz said his biggest worry right now is health. The 63-year-old farmer said he checks in with his staff regularly to see if they are feeling OK. “If they’re at a point when they start getting sick … we will stop. We can’t do anything … and if that time comes, then there’s nothing that we can do,” he said. Rutiz mentioned one of his blueberry partners had to stop delivering because his workers had to stay home with their kids, who need supervision at home due to school closures. At Talley Farms in Arroyo Grande, Box Program Manager Andrea Chavez has been seeing a spike in the number of customers who signed up for their farm box program. She said last week that people are still signing up. “We’re seeing a big increase in older customers wanting boxes delivered to their home versus picking up at one of our 70 pick up locations,” Chavez said. “The wholesale side of our farm is business as usual, with some of our older office employees working from home. Our sales to food service accounts are slower, but sales to our retail accounts are strong.” Chavez said their packing crew started at 6 a.m. rather than 6:30 a.m., and they’ve been using more trucks to make home deliveries. Some of their pickup locations have changed, as gyms and other businesses close, so customers are being notified by email. Chavez said people are buying their produce all at once right now, noting that grocery store produce shelves are light in supplies as more people are cooking at home and “perhaps realizing they need to eat healthier.” Tessa Varia—daughter of Antonio Varia, beloved chef and owner of Buona Tavola Restaurant and Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats—said that as of March 18, their handcrafted salami emporium in Atascadero would stay open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “It’s slowed down quite a bit, but we’ve changed it,” said Varia calmly. “We’re still making sure that we’re out there.”

FARM TOURS CEASE For the foreseeable future, local ag operations will not be holding farm tours, like the one pictured at The Groves at 41. The North County olive oil farm is one of the Central Coast ag producers that have lost business due to COVID-19.

Varia said the shop will still sell freshmade pasta, olive oil, Varia’s amazing jarred sauces, frozen sausages and cured meats, cheese, and fresh focaccia. Rancher Will Woolley of Templeton Beef, said his operation was “off the rails, crazy busy” amid the state and county coronavirus mandates. They have a good supply of ground beef, but you’ll need to call in your order rather than use the online portal. Woolley still will deliver the beef boxes all over SLO County, but instead of one pack per customer, it’s 10 pounds of beef at a time. Bautista Family Farms decided to go with the flow, opening up a grab-and-go pre-made produce box from their stand in Arroyo Grande. Each box, $20, can be picked up Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 to 11 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon. Bee Wench Farm in Shandon sold out of pasture-raised chicken the week of March 16. As soon as Sarah Worley posted her inventory online, she sold out in less than an hour. She urges everyone to check the online inventory for deliveries of eggs, meat, and bone broth. SLO Veg founder Rachael Hill said she’s been super slammed. “Our business has seen a huge influx in

new sign-ups in the past three days.” Hill’s delivery service of Central Coast grown harvests has always been an online service that delivers directly to customers. But some farm businesses have come to a grinding halt. Karen Tallent, president and farmer of The Groves on 41 in Templeton, was just granted a farm stand permit last month. Because of coronavirus cautions, they haven’t been able to open for olive oil tasting and tours. Though they’re accepting online orders and some locals are picking up drive-thru style, Tallent said their small farm tourism is “certainly suffering, so re-orders are pretty scant right now.” “We’re a bit of a luxury product,” Tallent said. “Seems by the looks of the grocery stores, people are more interested in toilet paper, sanitizers, and canned food.” But despite the challenges, Tallent said, “We are deeply grateful for the sensibility and manners exhibited by folks out running their necessary errands.” Δ Flavor writer Beth Giuffre is supporting her local farmers right now.

CITY OF GROVER BEACH Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain To: All interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals This is to give notice that the City of Grover Beach has determined that a portion of the following proposed action under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is located in a 100-year floodplain and the City of Grover Beach will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action in the floodplain and the potential impacts on the floodplain from the proposed action, as required by Executive Order 11988, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Floodplains. The proposed waterlines project is an infrastructure project that proposes to replace/ reconstruct existing aged and deficient underground waterlines in a number of locations throughout the City of Grover Beach, including those serving residences on Mono Court and Owens Court, both of which are located in a Special Flood Hazard Area per FEMA maps in Flood Zone AE. While approximately 300 feet of waterlines are proposed to be replaced, approximately 100 feet are located in the regulatory floodway. The area of within the regulatory floodway is approximately 5300 square feet, or 0.12 acres.

The proposed project will reconstruct the roadways after replacing/reconstructing the waterlines underneath to their pre-construction elevations in order to restore and maintain existing floodplain values. Measures will be implemented to ensure that wetlands located behind the homes on each Court will not be impacted by construction activities. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites outside of the floodplain, alternative methods to serve the same project purpose, and methods to minimize and mitigate impacts. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Written comments must be received by the City of Grover Beach at the following address on or before April 10, 2020: City of Grover Beach, 154 S. 8th Street, Grover Beach, CA 93433, Attention: Janet Reese, Associate Planner. Comments may also be submitted via email at jreese@ groverbeach.org. A full description of the project may be reviewed at the bulletin board at the above address and online at https://www. groverbeach.org/394/2020-CDBG-Funding. Date: March 26, 2020

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (805) 543-7088 or visit this internet web site www.eloandata.com, using the file number assigned to this case 42034. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Date: 2/26/2020. All American Foreclosure Service, 1363 Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 (805) 543-7088.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Tell jokes to humorists. Be extra kind to kind people. Sing songs to the birds. Change the way you change. Freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Your oracle comes from Aries poet Octavio Paz: “The path the ancestors cleared is overgrown, unused. The other path, smooth and broad, is crowded with travelers. It goes nowhere. There’s a third path: mine. Before me, no one. Behind me, no one. Alone, I find my way.” APRIL FOOL! Although the passage by Octavio Paz is mostly accurate for your destiny during the rest of 2020, it’s off-kilter in one way: It’s too ponderously serious and melodramatic. You should find a way to carry out its advice with meditative grace and effervescent calm.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): About 2,000 years ago, a Roman woman named Sulpicia wrote six short love poems—a total of 40 lines—that are still being analyzed and discussed by literary scholars today. I bring her to your attention because I think that in the next four weeks you, too, could generate a small burst of beauty that will still be appreciated 2,000 years from now. APRIL FOOL! I lied about the “small” part. The burst of beauty you create in the immediate future could actually be quite large, as well as enduring.

TAURUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): French poet Louis Aragon (1897-1982) was an influential novelist and a pioneer of surrealistic poetry. Much of his writing had a lyrical quality, and many of his poems were set to music. He also had a belligerent streak. Before the publication of one of his books, he announced that he would thrash any writer who dared to review it in print. Success! There were no critical reviews at all. I recommend his approach to you in the coming weeks. Make it impossible for anyone to criticize you. APRIL FOOL! I lied. I would never suggest that you use violence to accomplish your aims. And besides that, the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to solicit feedback of all varieties, even the critical kind.

(April 20-May 20): A century ago, fiery writer Maxim Gorky and hard-ass Taurus politician Vladimir Lenin were listening to a Beethoven sonata together. “I can’t listen to music too often,” Lenin told his companion. “It affects your nerves, makes you want to say stupid, nice things.” This is crucial advice for you to heed in the coming weeks, Taurus. You need to be as smart and tough as possible, so don’t you dare listen to music. APRIL FOOL! Lenin was half-mistaken, and I half-lied. The fact is, music makes you smarter and nicer, and those will be key assets for you to cultivate in the coming weeks. So yes, do listen to a lot of music.

SCORPIO

GEMINI

SAGITTARIUS

(May 21-June 20): By the time he was 55 years old, Gemini author Thomas Hardy had written 18 novels and many poems. His stuff was good enough to win him two separate nominations for a Nobel Prize in Literature. But during the last 32-plus years of his life, he never wrote another novel. According to one theory, it was because he was discouraged by the negative reviews he got for his last novel. I suspect you may be at a similar juncture in your life, Gemini. Maybe it’s time to give up on a beloved activity that hasn’t garnered the level of success you’d hoped for. APRIL FOOL! The truth is, it is most definitely NOT time to lose hope and faith. Don’t be like Hardy. Rededicate yourself to your passionate quests.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I hesitate to be so blunt, but it’s my duty to report the facts. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you should have as many orgasms as possible in the next 15 days. You need to tap into the transformative psychological power that’s available through monumental eruptions of pleasure and releases of tension. (P.S. Spiritual orgasms will be just as effective as physical orgasms.) APRIL FOOL! What I just said is true, but I left out an important component of your assignment: Be loving and responsible as you pursue your joyous climaxes, never manipulative or exploitative or insensitive.

CAPRICORN

CANCER

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Ancient Greek orator Demosthenes was renowned for his skill at delivering powerful, charismatic speeches. While he was still learning his craft, he resorted to extreme measures to improve. For example, there was a time when he shaved just half of his head. It made him ashamed to go out in public, forcing him to spend all his time indoors practicing his speeches. Would you consider a similar strategy right now? APRIL FOOL! I was just messing with you. It’s true that the coming weeks will be a good time to minimize your socializing and devote yourself to hard work in behalf of a beloved dream. But shaving half your head isn’t the best way to accomplish that.

(June 21-July 22): Cancerian theologian John Wesley (1703– 1791) was a Christian who embodied the liberal values that Christ actually taught. He advocated for the abolition of slavery, prison reform, the ordination of women priests, and a vegetarian diet. He gave away a lot of his money and administered many charities. To accomplish his life’s work, he traveled 250,000 miles on horseback and preached 40,000 sermons. Let’s make him your role model for the coming weeks. Be inspired by his life as you vividly express your care and compassion. APRIL FOOL! I lied a little bit. Although most of what I just recommended is a good idea, the part about traveling long distances, either on horseback or by other means, is not.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The neurotic but talented French novelist Marcel Proust observed, “Everything vital in the world comes from neurotics. They alone have founded religions and composed our masterpieces.” With that in mind, and in accordance with current astrological omens, I urge you to cultivate your own neurotic qualities in their extreme forms of expression during the coming weeks. You’re due for some major creative breakthroughs. APRIL FOOL! I was kidding. The fact is, you can generate creative breakthroughs in the coming weeks by being poised and composed—not extra neurotic.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo author Leon Edel wrote a fivevolume biography of renowned author Henry James. In the course of his research, he read 15,000 letters that were written by James. He came to have a profound familiarity with the great man. In accordance with current astrological omens, I recommend that you choose a worthy character about whom you will become equally knowledgeable. APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. It’s true that now is an excellent time to deepen your understanding of people you care about. But don’t get as obsessed as Edel!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to tell as many lies as possible if doing so helps you get what you want. I hereby authorize you to engage in massive deceptions, misrepresentations, and manipulative messages as you seek to impose your will on every flow of events. APRIL FOOL! I lied. In fact, everything I just said was the exact opposite of your actual horoscope, which is as follows: You have a sacred duty to tell more of the truth than you have ever been able to tell before. As you dig deeper to discover more and more of what’s essential for you to understand and express, dedicate your efforts to the goal of gliding along with the most beautiful and interesting flow you can find.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Fifteen minutes before the Big Bang occurred, where was the matter that now constitutes your body and my body? And if, as seems to be true, the Big Bang was the beginning of time, what time was it 15 minutes earlier? Questions like these are crucial for you to ponder in the next two weeks. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The questions I articulated should in fact be very low priority for you. In the immediate future, you’ll be wise to be as concrete and specific and pragmatic as you can possibly be. Focus on up-close personal questions that you can actually solve, not abstract, unsolvable riddles. ∆
