Paso Robles won’t purchase former state prison property

F

FILE PHOTO BY DYLAN HONEA-BAUMANN

ollowing intensive negotiations with the state, Paso Robles officials have decided against purchasing the 137 acres that houses the now-shuttered Estrella Juvenile Correctional Facility—property that the city long held hopes for acquiring and leasing to homeless service providers and other organizations. The surplus property on Airport Boulevard was made available to Paso Robles by the state—but at a $4.8 million price tag and with various terms and conditions that made the acquisition a significant financial risk, City Manager Tom Frutchey told New Times. For instance, under the terms of a sale, the city would not be allowed to lease any part of the land to private entities, only to government agencies and nonprofit organizations that provide public services. Paso leaders determined that the costs and conditions made it unlikely that they could take on the land without depending on support from the city general fund—a red line for City Council members. The City Council last discussed the sale during closed session at a Nov. 20 meeting. “The council decided if we’re going to do this, we don’t want to put any city services at risk,”

Frutchey said, explaining that the council wanted a “financially standalone operation.” “The risk was just too high,” he said. With the deal falling through, the state Department of General Services will now market its property to private entities for another six months, and then ask for bids. Looking forward, Paso is hopeful that it can strike a partnership with a private developer to acquire the land and lease at least a portion of it for community services. None of the same restrictions on the land that apply to the city would apply to a private entity. “We’ve had conversations with several people,” Frutchey said, declining to share UP FOR SALE The 137-acre property that houses specifics. “The state is very receptive to us the former Estrella Juvenile Correctional Facility in Paso Robles is up for sale to private developers. The city of working in partnership with developers.” Paso declined to purchase it due to financial concerns. Facing a homelessness crisis, the former Estrella site was thought to be great condition, which the city determined an ideal location for much-needed shelter and during an in-depth evaluation of the facility in rehabilitation services in North County. In preparation for a sale. The state has maintained addition, farmworker housing, sports facilities, the facility as part of a “warm shutdown” since educational uses, and commercial developments it closed in 2008—at a $750,000 annual cost to were also proposed on the land.

foundation’s board. She said that the center’s Women and Infants Mobile Health Unit (a clinic on wheels), a drive to give students onsite experience, and the ability to provide free health services was something that the nonprofit could get behind. “It’s a wonderful and educational opportunity that these students have the chance to not only work alongside practitioners, nurses, and physicians assistants but also with various patient populations all around the county,” Phelan said. She said that the Center for Heath Research learned that there is a lack of access to women’s and prenatal health care in North Santa Barbara County and beyond. “It’s not unique to the county. The state as a whole has about 24 to 27 percent of woman with either late or no access to care,” Phelan said. The mobile unit will provide services at eight sites in Santa Maria on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays and at two locations in Guadalupe on Mondays and Thursdays—with no appointment necessary. Phelan said the reason for providing so many service locations is to ensure that uninsured families and migrant workers will have convenient access to health care. Patients will be able to receive care in English, Spanish, and Mixtec languages. “Students will learn by doing with observation and administering health assessments, referrals, and co-leading a lot of these programs,” Phelan said. According to a press release, patients will also have the option to participate in sponsored research aimed at improving maternal and child health through Cal Poly’s Center for Health Research. The customized mobile unit, a repurposed RV, includes a fully furnished exam room and a counseling area. If a patient needs a service that is not

Investigators seek more information on murder suspect

Carlo Alberto Fuentes Flores has officially been charged with murder, but investigators are still asking the public to come forward with more information about the 42-year-old Paso Robles man. Flores was arrested on Dec. 18 in connection with the death of Nancy Colleen Woodrum, a 62-year-old hair salon and Airbnb operator from Paso Robles, and charged with her murder by the SLO County District Attorney’s Office on Dec. 20. But just one day after those charges were filed, the SLO County Sherriff’s Office released a statement asking anyone who’d had contact with Flores to contact them. Woodrum was reported missing on May 5, sparking an investigation and months-long search to find her. Flores, who Woodrum hired to paint the deck of her home in the week leading up to her disappearance, was eventually identified as a suspect and reportedly lead investigators to Woodrum’s body on Dec. 18 following an interview with Sheriff’s Office detectives. Woodrum’s body was found in a remote area in the eastern part of the county near Highway 58. The Sheriff’s Office didn’t say whether Flores confessed to killing Woodrum. NEWS continued page 7

As part of the investigation, SLO County Sheriff Ian Parkinson said that detectives were able to recover DNA evidence that was later matched to Flores. At a Dec. 19 press conference, Parkinson said that the investigation would likely continue even after Flores was arrested and charged. “The efforts of collecting evidence are still under way, … and there’s probably many more hours of investigative work to be done in preparation for presenting this case in trial,” he said.

Coast Unified appoints interim assistant superintendent

Two months after Coast Unified School District’s superintendent resigned, the school board appointed an interim assistant superintendent during its Dec. 13 meeting and reported positive fiscal health—for now. Board President Samuel Shalhoub told New Times in an email that the board unanimously appointed Kyle Martin to act as interim assistant superintendent. Martin is the current principal for Santa Lucia Middle School and will continue to fulfill his duties at the school along with the responsibilities of the position. Shalhoub said the board decided on Martin for the job because the community suggested his name through district-wide listening sessions. “Kyle Martin emerged as a person that many trust and respect, a person who was consistently suggested would be a good fit to serve in an enhanced leadership role beyond principal of Santa Lucia Middle School,” he said. “This input provided the board with a clear direction to pursue, and so we developed a way for Mr. Martin to assume an interim superintendent role.” Martin will be in the position between Jan. 3 and June 30, 2019. Shalhoub said that the district currently doesn’t have either a superintendent or an interim superintendent, but the board is planning to explore the possibilities of filling the interim superintendent position in January. “I am however in discussion with a potential candidate, and there will be public consideration of the candidate and any agreement to be made during our January 2019 regular session meeting,” he said. During the district’s listening sessions, Shalhoub said, a considerable number of people suggested that the board hire a person with experience as a superintendent who also had expertise in human resources and budget development. “The board feels it is a worthwhile effort to appoint a person with these qualities, hence our unique approach of creating the two aforementioned interim positions,” he said. This process comes after 97 percent of teachers signed a letter of no confidence in the district’s former superintendent, Victoria Schumacher, in June. Three months after that, Schumacher announced her resignation—her term is slated to end on Jan. 2, 2019. She will be placed on medical leave, using her remaining sick leave from Jan. 3 through the 30. Schumacher will receive a lump sum severance payment equal to three months of salary and health benefits.

VIEWER DISCRETION During the Dec. 13 meeting, the district also released its first interim budget report for the July 1 to Oct. 31, 2018 fiscal period. According to a staff report, the reserve for economic uncertainty is estimated at $1.4 million, an 11 percent reserve, for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Coast Unified is required to maintain a minimum 4 percent reserve. Using the district’s current budget assumptions, the reserve is projected to be at 6.23 percent by 2020-21. The reserve will continue to drop, the report states, as the district honors the memorandum of understanding with Cayucos Elementary School District and San Luis Coast Unified School District—a process for Cayucos students and funds to transfer to San Luis Coast Unified schools. Shalhoub said that through the work of the district’s financial analysis committee, it is developing an approach to the budget that will support students’ needs, sustain and develop programs, and provide for long-term sustainability overall. “We will be analyzing the efficacy of our decisions, continuing to listen, and developing a strategy to permanently fill one or both superintendent positions depending on need and input,” he said. “There is a lot of hope and goodwill in our community, and I look forward to nurturing that positivity so that will grow throughout the New Year and beyond.” —Karen Garcia

Salinas River bank shored up to protect Paso wells

It took more than 10,000 tons of boulders and $738,000 of city funds, but a critical Paso Robles water wellfield is now purportedly safe from an eroding Salinas River bank. Paso officials said they recently completed work on the emergency Salinas River bank stabilization project, launched in June 2018. Heavy rains during March 2018 ripped 30 feet of sediment off an eroding section of the river wall, diverting the flow of water dangerously close to the city’s adjacent Thunderbird Wellfield, which pumps half of the city’s water supply. “One more rain and we lose a well,” Paso Water Resources Manager Chris Alakel told New Times in June. The city obtained emergency permits from state and federal environmental agencies to shore up the bank, located near the Firestone Walker Brewery, with boulders. Alakel said the city contracted with a Tulare County-based quarry to produce and deliver the thousands of tons of granite rock. “The most difficult part was getting the material,” he said. “There were often times we were waiting for material. It was a lot of rock to truck in.” After the boulders were positioned, workers covered them with soil and loose straw and planted native seeds for trees and shrubbery to grow back, as required to mitigate environmental impacts. “What we’re left with now is the environmental restoration, which will be ongoing for the next several years,” Alakel said.

Alakel’s confident that the boulders will hold the bank strong for years to come and protect the city’s wells. Paso ratepayers may have to pay extra for it, though. With $737,000 spent on the project thus far, out of reserve funds, city officials have indicated that higher water rates could be one consequence of the crisis. —Peter Johnson

SLO residents still have time to sign up for Covered California

SLO County residents have until Jan. 15 to sign up for health care through the state’s Covered California marketplace. Covered California extended its open enrollment period past Dec.15. Individuals who signed up by Dec. 21 will be able to begin coverage on Jan 1. Those who sign up by Jan. 15 will have coverage starting on Feb. 1. While the number of local residents who signed up during the open enrollment period is not yet available, data from the SLO County Health Agency’s Public Health Department showed that a total of 12,310 people in SLO County received health insurance through Covered California as of September. That number is slightly lower than enrollment in the county for the same time the previous year, which was 12,470. Covered California was created under the auspices of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While the ACA weathered attempted repeal and replace efforts by a Republican majority in the House and Senate in 2017, a tax bill passed later that year included language that eliminated the law’s individual mandate, which required most individuals to have a minimum level of health insurance or face fines. While the mandate is still in place for 2018, it will end in 2019, meaning that those who opt not to get insurance this year won’t be facing fines next year. “A big question going into this season was whether people would continue to sign up without the pressure of the individual mandate,” Tara Kennon, communications coordinator for the SLO County Health Agency, wrote in an email response to questions from New Times. “Anecdotally, our navigators have told me that people they work with are renewing their coverage even without the mandate.” The county’s health care navigator team who, Kennon said, is a group of experts that help residents with everything from answering questions about their health insurance to assisting them with finding doctors and other services. “Right now, they’re doing a lot to help people find discounted health insurance through Covered California,” Kennon wrote.

oices took to the streets, city halls, county chambers, and the internet (but we aren’t going to go there!) this year as the election took off and national politics hit home. It wasn’t a quiet year—and maybe that’s a good thing. The more voices the merrier, right? Residents and candidates debated local issues such as housing, water, cannabis, public safety services, oil, and wastewater. Activists took to the streets to protest racism on Cal Poly’s campus, deaths in the county jail, and sexual assaults. Yes, it is the end of the year already, and it did go by so fast. But now’s your chance to put up your feet and take a look back at all we went through together before 2018 turns into a pumpkin. —Camillia Lanham

ELECTION 2018

Harmon trumps Gurnee for SLO mayor

“I am done pretending that this is a real discussion about which progressive is the real progressive,” Heidi Harmon told SLO Progressive Club members as her election opponent, T. Keith Gurnee, stood next to her. “Because there is only one progressive up here tonight, and I think you all know who that is.” Harmon’s admonishment of Gurnee at a July 26 progressives’ forum, followed by the “mic drop heard ’round SLO,” kicked off a tense, bitter fight for SLO’s mayorship that wouldn’t stop until FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM election night. Gurnee, a City Council member in the ’70s, promised to save the city from overdevelopment, intrusive bike paths, and liberal policies. Incumbent Harmon doubled down on her environmentally ambitious net-zero platform and emphasis on social and economic inclusivity. With Harmon’s more than 30-percentage-point victory, voters made THUMPING San Luis Obispo mayoral candidate T. Keith Gurnee reacts to election night results that showed their choice of visions incumbent Heidi Harmon en route to a landslide re-election clear. —Peter Johnson victory.

Arroyo Grande gets a new council

Arroyo Grande saw a major shift in the make up of its City Council as a result of the November elections. Sitting Councilmember Caren Ray ousted embattled twoterm Mayor Jim Hill. In addition, councilmembers Tim Brown and Barbara Harmon declined to run for re-election. Newcomers Jimmy Paulding, who ran and lost a race for 4th District Supervisor in June, and Keith Storton, a retired SLO Police Department captain, beat out a crowded field of candidates to win spots on the council. As their first order of business, the council plans to fill the vacant seat left by Ray’s election to mayor by appointment in early January. —Chris McGuinness

Paulding falls short against Supervisor Compton

Fresh-faced Arroyo Grande native Jimmy Paulding gave incumbent Supervisor Lynn Compton a run for her money in the race for SLO County’s 4th District Board of Supervisors seat, but the 32-year-old ultimately fell short by a mere 60 votes. The campaign was intense, with Paulding criticizing Compton’s votes, temperament, FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM motives, and campaign donors, and Compton characterizing Paulding as privileged and a “kid.” A critical swing vote on the politically split Board of Supervisors was at stake. Compton sought to maintain the threemember conservative majority; Paulding aimed to tip the board in a progressive direction. As a result, big money flowed into the race and the candidates collectively raised nearly $1 million RE-ELECTED San Luis Obispo County 4th District for their campaigns. Supervisor Lynn Compton narrowly won re-election in a —Peter contentious race against challenger Jimmy Paulding in June.

Cash rolls in for Measure G fight

Oil companies spent more than $8 million to fight a ballot measure that would have banned fracking and new oil and gas wells in the unincorporated areas of San Luis Obispo County. Measure G qualified for the November ballot after receiving more than 20,000 signatures earlier this year. The No on Measure G campaign said that should the measure pass, it would shut down all current and future oil production in the county, a claim that the Yes on Measure G campaign denied. Yes on G raised $242,000 in cash and in-kind donations, but campaign co-chair Charles Varni told New Times that the campaign didn’t have enough resources to adequately battle the unprecedented amount of money raised by the opposition. Measure G lost by 7 percent of the vote or almost 9,000 votes. “This really wasn’t an exercise in democracy. This was never a level playing field,” Varni said. —Camillia

CANNABIS ROLL OUT

SLO city readies for business

The central hub of the county took its sweet time enacting regulations to introduce a legal cannabis market in the community, retaining its blanket ban on pot for much of 2018 as officials also slogged through an overhaul of citywide zoning. But by year’s end, the City Council passed a freshly minted ordinance that positions SLO as one of the more canna-liberal municipalities on the Central Coast—in spite of annual fees that will run up to $95,000 per business. Stay tuned in 2019 for three brick-and-mortar stores opening, as well as new delivery, manufacturing, testing, and indoor cultivation operations. —Peter

Grover Beach dispensaries open

In 2018, Grover Beach took a major step toward becoming one of most cannabis-friendly cities in SLO County. In the lead up to 2018, the city approved allowing commercial cannabis businesses in the city, including growing, manufacturing, distribution, mobile delivery, and brick-and-mortar retail operations. In total, the city permitted four medical and recreational dispensaries to operate within the city limits. The first of those, 805 Beach Breaks, opened in May, quickly

followed by a second shop, Natural Healing Center. The city welcomed both businesses with open arms, even sending officials to participate in ribbon-cutting ceremonies to mark the occasion. With more commercial cannabis businesses set to come online in 2019, the city has already gotten a glimpse of the potential economic impact of the new industry. In the first quarter of 2018, the city raked in $120,000 from its commercial cannabis tax. —Chris

County struggles with permits and enforcement

SLO County wrestled with implementing its own cannabis regulations this year—which many called tediously convoluted and overly restrictive. Permit applications piled up at understaffed county offices while enforcement officials chased down hundreds of illegal grows in the California Valley. By year’s end, the county had issued just a handful of cannabis permits, but levied close to $1 million in fines to illegal operations. Dozens of applicants are still awaiting hearings, while fewer than half of the county’s roughly 160 eligible cultivators have submitted

UNRAVELING HATE SPEECH Students at Cal Poly protested hate speech incidents at the end of the 2017-18 school year and called for the university’s president to do more.

Upheaval on campus

On April 7, a photo of a Cal Poly Lamdba Chi Alpha fraternity member in blackface circulated on social media, sparking local and national media coverage. The incident reignited long-standing concerns over incidents s, of racial insensitivity and a lack of diversity on campus. In the weeks that followed, the university placed all of Greek Life on interim suspension. Along with the blackface controversy, other incidents involving fraternities—including racially charged and insensitive events, sexual assaults, hazings, an alcohol-related lia death, and violations of the university’s code of conduct

,

regarding hosting social events—led to the university’s decision. On May 4, Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong announced another blackface photo that was shared with a private group of fraternity members on Snapchat. Both blackface incidents as well as reports from other fraternities and sororities were turned over to the California Attorney General’s Office for investigation. On Oct. 2 Armstrong released a campus-wide email stating that the First Amendment protected the students who were involved in the racially charged incidents. —Karen Garcia

DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING

A debate over affordability

. The San Luis Obispo County Board of ter Supervisors closed out the year by passing a new way to fund affordable housing OM in the county. A coalition of affordable housing advocates, developers, and the business community helped bridge the divide between the conservative and liberal sides of the board—a divide that led to years of decision-making stagnation about the county’s affordable housing program. A three-year pilot program is expected to raise between $2 million and $4 million each year for the county’s affordable housing fund. In the city of San Luis Obispo, the debate over what kind of development should be allowed in the city rages on. With at least 68 commercial projects larger than 5,000 square feet in the city’s planning pipeline this year, the conversation over building was a large part of 2018’s City Council and mayoral election campaigns. City character n

sparred off with a need for housing in the wake of new housing laws passed by the state Legislature in 2017 aimed at building more housing units that will help alleviate the state’s housing and homeless crises—both of which are affecting the city and county. Residents argued over building heights, subdivisions, what constitutes affordable housing, and how building affordable units into projects should affect developers. As the argument over housing and commercial development continued, cities across the county declared homeless shelter crises in preparation for the incoming inclement winter weather and the long-anticipated $5.2-million homeless services center opened on Prado Road in SLO. The 20,000 square foot building known as 40 Prado is meant to combine the services offered at the Prado Day Center and Maxine Lewis Shelter, as well as provide other services such as medicine, counseling, childcare, and career resources. —Camillia

The death of SLO County Jail inmate Andrew Holland may have occurred in 2017, but the controversy and outrage surrounding his death continued to have an impact on policy and politics in SLO County well into 2018. In March, the SLO Tribune released portions of video surveillance footage of Holland’s death, which occurred after the schizophrenic was strapped into a restraint chair for nearly two days, sparking public outcry and protest against SLO County Sheriff Ian Parkinson. Holland’s death became a major issue in the race between Parkinson and his challenger, former SLO police officer and local private investigator Greg Clayton, in the June primary elections. Clayton had the support of the Holland family, which donated thousands of dollars into his campaign. Parkinson’s supporters responded by flooding his campaign coffers as well. Parkinson got re-elected and pledged to continue working with the county to implement reforms at the jail. Those included building a new medical clinic, hiring a jail chief medical officer, and more recently, outsourcing medical, dental, and mental health services at the jail to private correctional health contractor Wellpath. The jail remains under investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice. —Chris

SEXUAL ASSAULT REMAINS A CONCERN

#MeToo hits home

Tackling the issue of sexual assault and rape remained a challenge in SLO County in 2018. In March, a New Times investigation found that despite recording more reported rapes than any other law enforcement agency in the county, only a handful of the SLO Police Department’s investigations resulted in felony criminal charges being filed in SLO County Superior Court. The story raised questions about whether local law enforcement was doing enough to address such crimes. The county also experienced a highprofile sexual assault and rape case. The criminal case against Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez, an Uber driver accused of raping young female passengers, remains ongoing. It prompted 35th District Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-SLO) to introduce a bill that strengthened background checks for

rideshare drivers. The bill was signed into law in September. Controversy surrounding the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in late September once again brought the issue to the forefront in SLO County. Women’s March SLO organized a rally during the confirmation hearings and collected stories of sexual assault and harassment from local women. RISE, a local nonprofit organization that provides services and support for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, reported that calls to its sexual assault hotline increased by 322 percent from the previous year. There is little chance that issue will disappear in 2019. RISE announced that it plans to roll out a new sexual violence prevention program called “Close to Homes” in the city of SLO beginning in February. —Chris COVER continued page 10

Immigration and school shootings spark local protests SLO County residents young and old gathered in 2018 to organize and participate in protests over hotly debated national issues. In March, hundreds of high school students in SLO County participated in a national walkout to protest gun violence. The walkout was organized in the wake of a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The walkouts occurred at high school campuses in SLO, Arroyo Grande, Morro Bay, Nipomo, and others. In June, a crowd of about 1,500 people gathered in front of the SLO County Courthouse before marching through downtown SLO to protest the separation of undocumented immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.’s southern border by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcing (ICE). At the rally, speakers called on ICE and the administration of President Donald Trump to end the policy and reunite the more than 2,000 children taken from their parents. The rally was part of a nation-wide protest against the policy, which the administration later rescinded. —Chris FILE PHOTO BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

DRILL? In March, the U.S. Department of Interior approved an application to activate oil wells on the Carrizo Plain National Monument (pictured) that had been previously set for restoration. The agency is also studying swaths of public lands on the Central Coast for fracking, sparking concern from locals.

Fed’s eye oil and gas development on the Central Coast

In August, New Times reported how the U.S. Department of Interior was examining expansive swaths of public lands in SLO County, including landmarks like Morro Rock, as potential fracking sites in an environmental study. The news kicked off a frenzy on the Central Coast (Santa Barbara and Ventura counties were also included), and members of the public wound up submitting more than 8,000 individual comments to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) about the study. The BLM has not issued a new oil or gas lease on California public lands in more than five years, but community members are concerned about a pivot under the Trump administration. In March, the BLM ok’d jumpstarting an oil well on the Carrizo Plain that was previously set for restoration. —Peter

MORRO BAY

Wastewater project finalized After years of proposed sites, project cost changes, a new city manager and constant communication with the community, the city of Morro Bay finally took a leap forward on its new wastewater reclamation facility on Oct. 23. The council voted to award $67.2 million in a design and construction contract to Filanc/Black & Veatch, a San Diego firm. The city’s next hurdle was funding the project, which it successfully locked in after a controversial Proposition 218 vote to hike water and sewer rates. Utility bills for ratepayers could be as low as $168 or as high as $233, with the average customer paying $191. In order to potentially reduce the project’s overall budget, the city is going to apply for loans. But before the city could really rejoice in its accomplishments, the community vocally opposed the results of the Proposition 218 vote. Residents who opposed the city’s water reclamation facility project challenged the city’s refusal to count approximately 1,000 votes in protest of the water and sewer rate hike. The threat of litigation was enough for then City Councilmember, now mayor, John Headding to move to agendize acknowledging the votes without having them count toward the water and sewer rate hike protest. It was what Headding called a first step in the process of trying to reestablish a solid foundation of communication between the city and its residents. —Karen 10 • New Times • December 27, 2018 - January 3, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

SMOLDERING FIRE Reserve firefighters in Templeton complete as much training as full-time firefighters, but with less compensation. Fire departments across the county are struggling to maintain full-time firefighters, reserve programs, and their budgets.

Not enough money

Fire departments throughout San Luis Obispo County faced two big issues this year: retaining reserve firefighters and having enough funding to provide services to their community. The Cayucos Fire Department had been dealing with these issues for four years, but against the community’s wishes, it ultimately had to dissolve and hand its keys over to San Luis Obispo County in December. The department was paid for through a special fire tax of $100 per household on top of property taxes, but it wasn’t enough. The community had an opportunity to raise the tax to $125 in 2016, but voted against it. In the June 5 primary election, the Cambria community rejected Measure A-18, a tax of $62.15 per parcel owner, which would have paid for three full-time firefighters and maintained staffing levels. The Five Cities Fire Authority, which serves Oceano, Arroyo Grande, and Grover Beach, amended its joint powers agreement for fire coverage due to increasing expenses. According to the agreement for the 2018-19 fiscal year, Arroyo Grande will contribute $2.5 million, Grover Beach will pay nearly $1.8 million, and Oceano will put forth $987,362 to fund fire services. In North County, Templeton Fire and Emergency Services provides service between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and only has one fire captain. Its operations are funded by an antiquated property tax that was established when the district formed in 1976. In 2009, Templeton voters rejected a proposed special tax assessment that would have aided in the department’s funding gap. In December of this year, the district directed staff to start the research process for a future special election for a special parcel tax to funds its fire department. —Karen

WATER

(Ground)water remains front of mind

Drought conditions may have improved in 2018, but water (and the lack of it) remained a high priority for residents and local governments throughout the year. Farmers and communities over the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin came together (and at times clashed) over the writing of a basin sustainability plan, a document that must be submitted to the state by 2020, according to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). In FILE PHOTO BY PETER JOHNSON March, SLO County supervisors denied the Estrella-El PomarCreston Water District a chance to participate in the plan. Meanwhile, stakeholders over the SLO and Cuyama Valley basins also formed groundwater agencies and boards to tackle SGMA’s requirements. In October, a five-year-old North County water rights court case wrapped up: a Bay Area jury SUSTAINABILITY Hydrologist Derrik Williams briefs a roomful of Creston landowners about issued a mixed-bag ruling that acknowledged the right of the city the region’s groundwater conditions in October. Stakeholders across the Paso Robles Groundwater of Paso Robles, the county, and Basin began discussing a 20-year sustainability plan the San Miguel and Templeton for the aquifer in 2018. community services districts to purvey groundwater during a drought—but potentially curtailed that right. A coalition of private landowners and farmers sued the public agencies in 2013, bemoaning overpumping and overregulating. In the communities of Adelaida and west Templeton, landowners also sounded the groundwater alarms. With water use regulated over the Paso basin, Adelaida residents decried an influx of vineyard development and deep well drilling. County supervisors promised to look at policy solutions in 2019. Residents and vacationers at Lake Nacimiento feuded with Monterey County this year over its rapid water release schedule, out of the reservoir and into the Salinas River. Stay tuned in the New Year for a lawsuit that the lake community promises to file in response. ∆ —Peter New Times editorial staffers are excited for 2019, but we’re not sure what it will bring.

Fun therapy N ot every horse is ideal for equestrian therapy. No one knows this better than Melanie Williams-Mahan, executive director for the Atascadero-based Partners in Equestrian Therapy (PET). Since 1994, the nonprofit has run programs for children and adults with disabilities as well as for military veterans. “They have to be able to deal with a lot of different things,” Williams-Mahan told New Times. “They have to be very calm and patient and stable.” For the last seven years, one horse has stood out in particular among PETS’ stable, a 17-year-old quarter horse named Chief Four Socks. Williams-Mahan affectionately described Chief as the organization’s “go-to” horse; known for his quirky, kind, and unflappable personality. “Nothing scares him, and he is very calm and patient,” she said. “He is a little bit of a clown and will do anything to help a rider who is feeling anxious or scared feel better.” Chief apparently has a fun sense of humor, too, and will play jokes to amuse his riders, such as stealing the hats off people’s heads. Williams-Mahan also said that riding Chief means never having to worry about him going too fast either, especially when he senses that a rider is uncomfortable or off balance. “He’s really one of the funniest horses we’ve had,” she said. “He’s perfect for out riders.” But lately Chief has been having health problems after being diagnosed with internal pigeon fever, better known as dryland distemper. After being out PHOTO BY COURTSEY OF PET

of commission for a time, Chief is on the mend and Williams-Mahan said PET is now trying to raise money to help cover the costs of his ongoing treatment and medication. PET’s program is based on the methodology and certificates offered through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship. Programs like the one offered by PET are helpful for individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as those with emotional, learning, language, sensory, and emotional impairments. The organization also added a riding program for veterans in 2013. Those who want to help Chief Four Socks can donate to the organization, which is funded mostly through donations, by going to the PET website at petslo.com and clicking the Paypal link.

A special holiday greeting Dems are determined to persecute Donald Trump at any cost

I

t’s becoming abundantly clear that Democrats are not willing to accept the choice of the 60 million who voted for Donald Trump. Instead, they’re bent on persecuting him, his family, his friends, his associates until such time as he’s run out of office by impeachment, resignation, or the next election. And they threaten that it won’t end there as they’ll pursue him after he once again becomes a private citizen using the investigative force of government to ensure that the rest of his life is a living hell, one court date after another, until such time as he passes from this world. And it won’t be long until the same forces will pursue his adult children, his business empire, and his brand. Why not? They supported him, they carry his name, they’re rich, and they didn’t really earn it on their own. Their wealth is not really theirs. They didn’t create that business empire. It belongs to the people, the hard working men and women who toil with little to show for their effort. No, The Donald is the culprit and his children deserve to be punished for the sins of the father. From my vantage point, that seems to be the plan.

HODIN

But have the Democrats really thought this through? Do they really believe that they—using the force of government to crucify Donald Trump, his family, and friends, then to work to remove him from office in any manner possible—will be allowed to proceed without consequence? I certainly don’t think so.

will be cause for rebuke. Remove him, his family, and his name from the annals of contemporary thought and speech and move this country to what it deserves to be, a Democratic Socialist nation. So any pro-life, pro-America, pro-gun, pro-rule of law outsider with the gall to run and win the presidency, now knows

Many Democrats believe that this nation was founded on the oppression of the less fortunate, the less educated, the needy, and the less connected and that the only remedy is revolution. It can either be slow and painful as we’re seeing now or quick and effective by achieving their goals through force. And what better way to begin such a revolution than to get Trump supporters to start it. So what I see coming is investigation on top of investigation in an effort to make it impossible for President Trump to govern.

Letters A Trumpian version of Christian charity

It must take courage for someone to speak out against the injustices of political correctness and civility, for a bold civic leader to stand up against the cruel shackles of the separation of church and state, and for a true hero to stand up for the affluent white victims of the homeless crisis. Al and Atascadero City Councilmember Roberta Fonzi’s mutual display of modern Christian values, at Christmas, is truly a remarkable sight to behold and I feel it my duty to honor them publicly with their own version of truth. Don’t give a second thought to the young Jewish or Islamic child getting mercilessly abused by their Christian classmates not yet taught the virtues of tolerance, diversity, and non-conformity. Don’t give a second thought to the addict being denied rehabilitation or shelter, because they should simply be left to die, be incarcerated for profit, or be banished to the next town. The real reason—in Al’s own words—that Atascadero is unwilling to fund the seasonal access to the armory: The shelter does not fit with their vision of “economic viability” for Atascadero (“Why the Armory is a bad idea for a shelter,” Dec. 6) and they don’t like to cast their Christian gaze on homeless people in their city, whom they’d prefer be moved a few “miles down the road” and out of sight from civic and religious leaders.

Demand action from Congress

During 2018, global greenhouse gas emissions continued to increase and the resulting climate disruption losses were devastating. These extreme losses occurred in many places. In California, drought-driven wildfires resulted in scores of deaths, staggering personal financial loss, and significant economic injury to businesses. Climate refugees, previously only in distant countries, now include U.S. citizens in Northern California and asylum-seekers at our southern border. However, next year offers some real hope. Congress could pass the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Congress could also implement a “Green New Deal” to tackle global warming and poverty by providing economic opportunities for disadvantaged and marginalized Americans as we transition to renewable energy. Doing neither will lead to greater and greater climate disruption losses. Doing both will greatly reduce U.S. fossil fuel emissions over the next decade. During 2018, climate scientists have repeatedly warned us that we are, literally, running out of time in which to make the required emissions reduction. Therefore, before it is too late, we can and must demand congressional action in 2019, which will significantly reduce our national greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Sharon Rippner San Luis Obispo

Going back farther, I see myself and 1,400 other activists occupying the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant site in New Hampshire in 1977. Pledged to non-violence, members of the Clamshell Alliance were highly organized into small pods of support groups. We set up a camp village on the site until we were arrested. During our two weeks of incarceration, we made all decisions by consensus. What came out of our disparate actions? Nothing immediately tangible. We didn’t stop Seabrook, and in the two years since

Trump became president, his administration has embarked on a litany of outrages that imperil our democratic institutions, the rule of law, our voting rights, racial and economic justice, our environment, our planet. No wonder we can’t breathe. However, both Seabrook and the Women’s March were glorious, empowering, visionary actions that grew out of human imagination. We made history, and we affirmed the power of our resourcefulness to change destiny and plant the seeds of change. Essayist Rebecca Solnit wrote, “The true impact of activism may not be felt for a generation. That alone is reason to fight, rather than surrender to despair.” Let me tell you about a stirring moment of hope and imagination. While we were held in an armory in New Hampshire, the authorities enacted stricter and stricter rules to demoralize the protesters and encourage us to bail out. At one point, the commander announced that all the men in our support groups would be transferred to regular jail cells. But he was foiled by the brilliance of Elizabeth Boardman, a Quaker activist, who must have been in her 60s at the time. When the guards arrived holding billy clubs and in full riot gear to cart away the men, they confronted all the prisoners arranged in two concentric circles, women standing on the outside, arm-in-arm, and

men seated on the inside. Piled in the middle were everyone’s shoes. Boardman then calmly announced that if the guards attempted to forcibly break into the circles, the prisoners were going to take off all their clothes, lie down, and go limp. Yep, everyone had agreed to this by consensus. So what happened? Without female guards to physically handle hundreds of naked women, which would violate prisoner rights, the commander conceded the decision. I am not suggesting that resistance goes better naked, despite the fact that it was a near-naked Indian lawyer named Gandhi who liberated the Asian subcontinent using the imaginative tactics of non-violence. Who inspired Gandhi? The courageous British suffragettes battling for the right to vote. In 1906, a group of women occupied the British Parliament, refused to pay their fines, and went to jail. Who did Gandhi inspire? Martin Luther King, who passed the technique of nonviolent social change to the civil rights movement in the U.S. and to the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. As Solnit said, “Ideas are contagious, emotions are contagious, hope is contagious, courage is contagious.” Hope opens the door to possibility, to alternatives. Because she inhabited hope Boardman imagined an alternative to a damaging authoritative edict. Oh, and the Clamshell Alliance helped

to inspire our own sister organization here on the Central Coast, the Abalone Alliance. Together, these groups woke citizens around the country to the dangers of nuclear power—and helped to cancel more than 100 planned nuclear projects. And what about the Women’s March and those pink pussyhats? Trump’s anti-women comments caught on the Access Hollywood tape were re-imagined by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman, who jumped on plans for a global women’s march the day after the Trump inauguration. They published their idea on social media and posted a design for hats. “It’s reappropriating the word ‘pussy’ in a positive way,” Zweiman said. With hope buoyed by ingenuity, the Women’s March—purportedly the largest single-day protest in U.S. history— became a sea of pink that highlighted women’s rights, immigration reform, health care reform, reproductive rights, the environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, workers’ rights, and tolerance. In its wake in the recent midterm elections, 102 women were elected to the U.S. House and 14 to the Senate. The number of women running for office shattered records. So, breathe, friends, and remember hope. I’ll see you at the Women’s March SLO on Jan. 19. Wear your pussyhat. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action.

Opinion

The Shredder

What’s your status?

I

wonder what 2018 would have been like if Donald Trump wasn’t our president. There probably wouldn’t have been so many protests in downtown SLO or on Cal Poly’s campus. Race and gender issues may not have gotten the attention they deserved. The local environmental community probably wouldn’t have pulled together to “fight” against imagined offshore drilling and the threat of seeing oil wells on certain special pieces of federal land in SLO County. County and city elections might not have been so fraught. The insults thrown back and forth between sides certainly wouldn’t have been nearly as entertaining or depressing. And nonprofits advocating for liberal causes have probably never raised so much money based solely on the president’s stances against the causes they fight for. Panic on both sides of the political spectrum put the electorate into perpetual fight or flight mode, which is stressful and not great for your health. Ask my mechanic. I was told to stop grinding my gears so much at night. But people were involved. They spoke up and showed that they cared about issues. SLO County residents woke up to the heady issues happening at home, taking angst over the national clusterfuck and turning it into fuel for trying to change things in their community. The attempt to oust SLO County Sheriff Ian Parkinson from office may

have worked if his opponents could have fielded a better candidate than Greg Clayton, whose main claim to fame (other than being a retired SLO city police officer) was that he wasn’t Parkinson. Activists actually paraded into the SLO County Board of Supervisors Chambers with a man on a stretcher symbolizing Andrew Holland, a schizophrenic inmate who died in custody after being tied down to a restraint chair for almost two full days in 2017. The activists refused to leave, and just stood at the front of the chambers with green signs that asked for Parkinson’s resignation. Supervisor John Peschong, the chair of the board, was so flustered he almost couldn’t speak! It was a beautiful thing perpetuated by something terrible, and yet Parkinson weathered the storm, promising changes amid an investigation into jail deaths (there have been 13 since he took over in 2011) by the FBI, scrutiny from local news media and the public, and being caught in a tailspin of half-truths. We really couldn’t find anyone better to run against him than Clayton?? WTF SLO County? We need to do better. And the guy who ran against Parkinson’s BFF for life, SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow? Also a crappy candidate. It’s so obvious that Dow’s track record is shady at best. He favors law enforcement, treats Parkinson like he walks on water, didn’t hold anyone accountable in the wake of the Holland death, fudges up white-collar crime cases, and can’t

seem to prosecute perpetrators of sexual misconduct and/or assault unless it’s so obvious he doesn’t have a choice (and, I’m not pointing fingers at all here, especially if it’s a police officer with the Paso Robles Police Department)! Dow’s challenger in the 2018 election was a guy who had his first name legally changed to Judge! Judge Mike Cummins. Seriously? Come on! Meanwhile, oil companies such as Chevron and Sentinel Peak Resources pumped more than $8 million greenbacks into a fight over Measure G, which would have banned fracking and new oil and gas wells in the unincorporated areas of the county. Unprecedented and obnoxiously stupid show-offs. That’s about $28 per county resident, which is more than all the county level candidates put together raised to run in the June primary— between $5 and $6 per resident, if you were wondering (damn cheapskates). Everyone was calling everyone a liar either way, no matter how much money was spent per county resident, but No on Measure G spent about $888 per vote it got against the measure. Was it worth it? I hope so, because that cash might not work the next time around. This historically red county is turning purplish. Although a lot of residents are

simply sick of either party, the number of registered Dems overtook Republicans for the first time. With more than 98,000 registered voters in the county as of Nov. 7, 2018 (the day after the election), about 35,000 were registered as Democrats, 31,000 as Republicans, and 25,000 were decline to state. And the next generation of lively voters came out of the 18-year-old starting gate with verve and anger. Students from local high schools streamed out of classrooms after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, angry about the shit they have to put up with—the fear on top of teenage angst that a shooter will open fire on their campus. The anger that elected officials don’t seem to care enough to actually change anything about it. The audacity that some adults have to say, “That’s the way it is, schools need to have more security and guns on campus.” Students at Cal Poly fought back against hate, putting the school in the national spotlight over racially charged incidents that could be blamed on ignorance, but shouldn’t have happened. The protest openly questioned the leadership of President Jeffrey Armstrong, who has marched with students against racism in past years. Questioning leadership and challenging the status quo is at the root of democracy. And I, for one, am thankful that our president has given us the opportunity to question his idiocy and the trickle down that followed. ∆ The Shredder is always challenging your skills at shredder@newtimesslo.com.

DANCE OFF Play some craps and dance to the lively horn(y) sounds of Brass Mash on New Year’s Eve at the SLO Brew Rock Event Center.

Merry and happy Yes, New Year’s Eve is on a Monday night, but you can still party close to home

I

don’t know about you guys, but I have to work on Monday, Dec. 31, so I’m not leaving town this year for New Year’s Eve. Yes, that’s definitely a sad face emoji—the one with blue waterfalls of tears streaming down both sides of its unhappy yellow face. There are plenty of shows to hit up in town this year if you don’t feel like sitting on your couch and watching that ball in New York drop through your television. Even if it is in HD, it’s just not the same as being there in the big city, being crushed by thousands of people behind one of the gated off streets, smelling urine, and freezing your ass off while the too drunk person next you struggles to stand up straight.

Lucky for you, the weather’s much nicer here, and you don’t have to spend a bunch of money on flights to celebrate. You can catch an Uber or Lyft to somewhere close and then fall asleep in your own bed after the final countdown takes us into 2019. Maybe you wanted to move on over to the other side of the pond to connect with this country’s British heritage. The English Beat headlines at the Fremont Theater on Monday, Dec. 31 (8 p.m., 16-and-older, $22.50 to $45 at eventbrite. com and Boo Boo Records). It all started on a weird and wild weekend in March 1979, when The Beat played their first concert in Birmingham, England. With a message of love and unity, The Beat’s part in the British ska movement is

dance floor bumping (21-and-older, $30 at slobrew.com), so head to the craft store for feathers, fake flowers, and plaster and get that hot glue gun plugged in. You’re going to need a mask for this one. A funky trip back a few decades could also be sweet. Bell bottoms, loud shirts, and butterfly collars with big hair and possibly some neon sequins and platform pumps should do you right if you head to The Siren in Morro Bay on Monday, Dec. 31, where the Humbolt-based super funk group Diggin’ Dirt will help you groove your way into 2019 (doors at 8 p.m., 21-and-over, $25 at ticketfly.com or Boo Boo Records). Not far back in time enough for you? Step back one more decade with Unifinished Business and guest vocalist Roy Henry as they play a ’60s

Rock’n’Soul New Year’s Eve Bash at the SLO Embassy Suites on Monday, Dec. 31. All tickets include a buffet dinner with cash bar service and special overnight hotel rates (doors at 6 p.m., dinner buffet at 7 to 8:15, music from 9 to 12:15 a.m.; $85 to $95 at my805tix.com).

Before Mötley Crüe, one band was already pummeling their instruments in rock joints across the nation. In the 1970s, when members of Y&T were sweating all over stages, they didn’t know what would come in the future when hard rock bands like RATT and Metallica would light up the charts. Born in Oakland as Yesterday and Today, the band shorted their name to Y&T in the ’80s. Three greatest hits collections and 18 albums later, Y&T has sold more than four million albums since 1974, and the band’s most recent single, “I’m Coming Home,” has roughly 1.5 million views on YouTube, according to press materials. “Prepare to have your face melted” as Y&T plays The Fremont on Friday, Dec. 28 (doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m., 16-and-older, $25 at Boo Boo Records or eventbrite.com). San Diego’s Abraham Laguna—the artist also known as Ookay—will bump

the Fremont Theater on Sunday, Dec. 30, with his house music and trap-style productions (doors at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m., 16-and-older, $24 on eventbrite.com or Boo Boo Records). Ookay began producing electronic dance tracks in his early 20s under the name Leisure. Ookay’s 2016 hit “Thief” reached No. 27 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart and earned millions of digital streams. In May 2018, the artist released his first full-length album, Wow! Cool Album! Charlie McNeal takes over The Siren on Friday, Dec. 28, with The

Creston Line opening (doors at 7:30 p.m., 21-and-over, $10 to $12 at Boo Boo Records and ticketfly.com). McNeal’s debut single, “A Little Less Coke (And A Lot More Whiskey),” is just a taste of what he offered on his first full-length EP Remember the Time, which he released in 2016. He released his sophomore album in 2018, Runaway Train, before he turned 18. Despite his age, McNeal sings fullthroated country songs about heartbreak and despair. Burning James and the Funky Flames’ subgroup, Burning, Bad & Cool, bring funk

But she also knows there’s a space in between those opposing emotions, one that can hopefully be filled with mutual understanding. It’s what led Reitner-Cameron, who is the founder of both (iii) Design and The Bunker SLO, a shared creative space, to participate in and guest curate the Common Ground 2019 art exhibit, which is currently on display at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles. The show invites viewers to see how artists are engaging with the current political landscape, representing their beliefs and anxieties through their original work, all the while striving to find common ground as a nation and as people. Common Ground 2019 features about 40 pieces done in glass, sculpture, found objects, 3-D art, interactive works, acrylics, and oil paintings by local artists like Lena Rushing, Mark Bryan, and Robbie Conal. “It’s very diverse,” Reitner-Cameron said. The San Luis Obispo artist has made both rage-fueled art and creative works to soothe her soul. Around the time President Donald Trump was elected, Reitner-Cameron was busy working on creating the former. Her painting done on wood panels, So It Goes, features a blond underwear-clad woman on a stage surrounded by the bodies of dead women, lying in a circle around her feet on the ground. “Since that time I’ve been doing more mellow art—calm and peaceful—but I wanted to bring it [So It Goes] back because, as a woman, I do feel disposable,” Reitner-Cameron said. “When I was younger, especially, I felt not heard. And as the parent of a 17-year-old girl, I want people to understand that it’s still very real.” The message resonated further for Reitner-Cameron as she followed the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to Congress in September about being sexually assaulted in 1982 by Brett Kavanaugh, who Trump nominated to the Supreme Court this year. In spite of her testimony, Kavanaugh’s appointment continued, undeterred by allegations of sexual assault. “It’s still very applicable,” Reitner-Cameron said. “It still seems like there’s a level of anxiety and fear that’s still very present. I’m hoping that come January, when there are more women in Congress, more women who are active, that change is coming for women, people of color, and LGBTQ people.” These days, Reitner-Cameron is busy crafting more calming work, mainly simplified, modern landscapes and cityscapes, many of which are inspired by her frequent trips to Wyoming. “It really chills me out,” she said. Reitner-Cameron hopes that the Common Ground 2019 show will offer viewers a chance to see a different perspective and connect with a piece that reflects their own feelings about our currently tumultuous and divisive existence. “Artists I think deal with things differently than other normal people,” Reitner-Cameron said. “I’m visual and I’m an empath. When I feel things, I really feel things; it’s achy. Someone may be able to look at one of these paintings and think, ‘That’s how I feel.’ That’s all I want.” Δ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley is taking deep breaths. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

M

ichael Kincade, the San Luis Obispo County poet behind Positively American, knows a thing or two about the national culture and values. Which is why after the 2016 presidential election, he was dismayed to notice that a lack of respect between people was becoming the norm. And thus, an idea was born: to write a children’s book in poetic verse where the message of tolerance might reach the younger generation. Kincade and local illustrator Steve Kalar sat down with New Times to discuss their new book, Different Is The Same.

R

ob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Pirates of the Caribbean: One Stranger Tides, Into the Woods) directs this sequel to the 1964 classic about a magical nanny who helps two neglected children reconnect with their father. This time around, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) returns to the Banks family children who are now adults. Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) lives with his three children— Anabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh), Georgie (Joel Dawson)—and their housekeeper, Ellen (Julie Walters), in the same house on Cherry Tree Lane. With encouragement by Michael’s sister, Jane (Emily Mortimer), and the help of lamplighter, Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), Mary helps the new set of Banks children find the joy in life. (130 min.)

There are a lot of spectacular song and dance sequences, my favorite being a big number with a troupe of lamplighters riding bikes and dancing to “Trip a Little Light Fantastic,” one of 10 terrific original songs in the film written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Color me surprised and impressed! Anna I’m so incredibly happy that this film did its predecessor justice and brought its own flair to the big screen as well. Poppins is an iconic character, and I can’t help but picture Julie Andrews when I hear the name, but Emily Blunt is just as charming and perfectly posed as the practically-perfect-in-every-way nanny. Equally iconic is Dick Van Dyke’s chimney sweep character Bert, taken over in Mary Poppins Returns by Miranda’s Jack, a sweet and silly tagalong to all of the adventures Poppins and the Banks children embark on. The soundtrack is really dynamic, from big and bold to quiet and tender; the songs had me laughing then tearful from one minute to the next. I was a bit nervous about this one as the

Glen I’m happy to report that this sequel—54 years after the original!—is just as wonderful and magical as the first one. Rob Marshall and company have truly done the original justice. The story, the music, the acting, the cinematography, the special effects, and the direction are all superb! With his beloved wife dead and his finances in a shambles, Michael Banks is adrift. The cupboard is nearly bare, and his house is being foreclosed on by the same bank he works for, which his father helped found. If a family ever needed a magical nanny, this one does. The film focuses on the Banks children learning important lessons about using their imaginations, accepting loss, and being brave. Meanwhile, in an effort to save his house, Michael and his sister, Jane, frantically search for a missing stock certificate while the bank president, William “Weatherall” Wilkins (Colin Firth), pays Michael and Jane lip service about wanting to help them but is actually conniving behind INCREDULOUS The Banks children—(left to right) John their backs to steal (Nathanael Saleh), Anabel (Pixie Davies), and Georgie (Joel their family home.

original Mary Poppins is near and dear to me. I watched it pretty obsessively as a child (and, honestly, as a stoned teenager—those animation scenes are crazy!). I trusted Blunt to be spectacular in all she does, and she doesn’t disappoint. Magic is in the air, and when Mary Poppins comes to call you know things are going to work out just fine, and once again it does. I’ll be re-watching this one. It was too much fun to view just once. Glen I thought Blunt was perfect, and she’s got a lovely voice to boot. She certainly takes cues from Julie Andrews’ performance. After all, it’s supposed to be the same character. I was also wowed by Miranda, who I only know of from his Broadway musical, Hamilton. I can see from his résumé that he’s done a few films and a lot of TV, but this role is definitely his star turn. He adopts a cockney accent and sings and dances his way into the hearts of the Banks children as well as spinster Jane Banks. Meryl Streep pops up for a great cameo as Cousin Topsy, who teaches the kids to see life from more than one angle. I also loved the lastminute cameo by the original’s costar, Van Dyke, who might be 93-years-old but can still dance and sing and shoot twinkles out of his eyes. The alwayswelcome Angela Lansbury also shows up at the end as the Balloon Lady. This film is a nostalgia-fest for parents and an introduction to a new world of wonder

for kids. If I had some little ones, I’d take them straight to the theater to see this film and then straight to the record store to buy the soundtrack. Mary Poppins Returns is an instant classic! Anna The cameos were a lot of fun. I always appreciate a “kids” movie that pulls off being genuinely enjoyable for adults too, and this one hits that sweet spot dead on. At no point was I bored— the sensory feast for the eyes and ears flew by and left me both satisfied and wanting more. One of the animated scenes was particularly fun. The children and Poppins venture into the world of a cracked bowl after a mishap to help the painted characters repair the damage. What follows is a raucous ride, an overthe-top cabaret, and a nasty wolf whose wily ways teach the Banks children the truth behind the phrase, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” From the out-of-thisworld colors, to the nostalgic similarities to the prior film, it all just works. I loved Streep’s character, Topsy, as well, and the musical number that accompanies the scene is fantastic. This movie is just a ton of fun—showy yet sentimental, sweet, and silly. Get to the theater and bring the kids along—this one is meant for everyone! ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Christian Rivers (Minutes Past Midnight) directs Hera Hilmar as Hester Shaw, a mysterious woman living on a mobile industrial city seeking revenge for her murdered mother. Co-producers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh bring Philip Reeve’s young adult novel, Mortal Engines, to life—set in a distant future where mobile cities hunt smaller towns and dismantle those they catch for raw materials. What this film lacks in intertwining storylines it makes up for in action-packed and in-your-face sequences. Don’t let the Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and King Kong) name across the top of the movie poster fool you—this film lacks his magic touch and the fluid storytelling that we see in his previous work. As most futuristic stories begin, a narrator recounts the story of the earth and how “the ancients” destroyed it in only 60 minutes with destructive technology. In case you were wondering, the ancients are the present population—yeah, you heard me, you reading this review are part of the ancients’ population. Anyway, in order to survive with whatever resources are left, cities and towns have been built on top of engines so they can freely roam the muddy terrain in constant search. Cities that are obviously inhabited by the upper class prey on smaller towns and literally swallow them up and search them for scrap technology to continue leading their somewhat successful lives. It’s very Hunger Games-esque, as the screen closes in on London’s population, cheering and applauding as their city swallows up a town. The town they’re rummaging through for goods contains Hester Shaw, a runaway seeking bloody revenge on the city’s lead engineer, Thaddeus Valentine (Hugo Weaving), who murdered her mother. Seeking the opportunity, she stabs Thaddeus once but is stopped by one of the city’s historians, Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan). Tom was a huge believer in Thaddeus and his work until he started to question

Pick

whether Thaddeus had harmed Hester’s mother, so Thaddeus pushes Tom down the city’s garbage shoot and out into the deserted world. Tom’s left in the mud to fend for himself and to make sense of who Thaddeus really is and what he’s done to others in order to get to the top. He’s left with the company of Hester, whose no-nonsense, lone-wolf vibe isn’t so easy to deal with. Turns out Hester is so angsty because of her troubled upbringing. After her mother’s death, a robot with superpowers raised her, but that’s a whole psychological can of worms. There are a couple more side stories within this film that I think take away from the issue at hand. Thaddeus is building something powered by old, dangerous pieces of technology that could eliminate other people. I guess he wants to be a dictator of sorts. So there’s that, mixed with a rebellion population (very Star Wars) that lives in a city in the sky, a love story with Hester, a sanctuary village, and a crazy robot who once was a human. It’s a lot of little stories meshed into one, and it’s not done very well. It feels like we’re just getting to know one character ... and then wait a second, here’s a clumsy plot twist. It’s just kind of a corny movie with all the bells and whistles of a Jackson film. The action scenes are epic, like when the deranged robot chases Hester and Tom, or an airplane fighting scene, with explosions and all that good stuff. Also, thumbs up for having a diverse and almost entirely unknown cast except for Weaving and an unrecognizable Stephen Lang—he’s the crazy robot guy. I have to say a lot of strong roles in the film were played by women, which is something I’m all for. This is Hilmar’s first leading role, but you might recognize her from The Romanoffs or Anna Karenina. Overall the film is fun to see in theaters but don’t expect much in terms of storyline.

THE MULE

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino) directs this crime thriller screenplay by Sam Dolnick, based on the New York Times Magazine article “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” by Nick Schenk. Eastwood takes on the role of Earl Stone, a horticulturist and World War II vet who’s caught in Michigan running $3 million worth of Mexican cartel cocaine. After a quick read of the New York Times Magazine article upon which this film is based, it’s pretty clear that instead of focusing—as the article does—on whether or not Earl Stone was a crafty insider or a doddering old man taken advantage of by the cartel, this film is more

Pick

interested in inventing Earl’s estrangement from his family. Earl wants to be the center of attention, and he’s seen as a star of the daylily growers association and well liked at the local VFW hall, rather than feeling like a failure as a husband and father at home. He misses anniversaries, birthdays, weddings—you name it—and his ex-wife Mary (Dianne Wiest) and daughter Iris (real life daughter Alison Eastwood) hate him for it. About the only family member who’s not yet fed up with his selfishness is soon-to-bemarried granddaughter Ginny (Taissa Farmiga). His horticulture operation, having fallen on hard times thanks to the internet, is out of business, so when he’s recruited to drive a route for the cartel, he accepts, thinking it’ll be a one-time easy money scheme that will help him pay for his granddaughter’s wedding. It is easy money … too easy, and the one-time trip turns into another and another, with increasingly larger loads and fatter paydays. Earl’s a charming, selfish prick, and the film explores—maybe a little too easily and conveniently—how he comes to realize what’s really important in life. It’s not nearly as good as Gran Torino (2008), a similarly themed film, but it certainly washes the bad taste of his last failure—The 15:17 to Paris (2018)—out of my mouth. So, yes, Eastwood has pulled it off again, but it’s a little repetitive of his past work. Like Gran Torino’s cranky, racist, veteran Walt Kowalski, Earl Stone is mostly blind to his own shortcomings. Hispanics are “beaners,” blacks are “negroes,” and women are gleefully objectified. Earl gets away with it all because he’s old, but also because he’s not malignant or malicious about it. He just doesn’t seem to know any better. His law enforcement counterpart is new Chicago bureau DEA Special Agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper), who with his DEA partner (Michael Peña) is zeroing in on the cartel operation because they flipped low-level cartel worker Luis Rocha (Eugene Cordero), who tells them all about this successful new mule, Tata, who’s now driving a new black pickup truck. Yet, even when Tata—aka Earl Stone—is right under the DEA’s noses, his age and amiable nature rules him out as a suspect. Overall, this is an ambling film that occasionally delivers moments of emotional resonance. Eastwood is 88 years old, and the former hunky lead is comfortable in his skin, gifted behind and in front of the camera, and still capable of crafting an entertaining story. The Mule will be remembered as an effective late-career effort from a masterful filmmaker who’s given us classics such as The Outlaw Josey Wales, Pale Rider, Mystic River, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, and American Sniper. For me, his amazing oeuvre is enough to erase his 2012 RNC speech to an empty chair. (117 min.) —Glen Starkey

Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Co-directors Phil Johnson and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia) helm this animated sequel in which Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman) follow a Wi-Fi router in their home arcade, Litwak’s Family Fun Center, to explore a strange new world: the internet. Six years have passed since the events of Wreck-It Ralph, and Ralph and Vanellope are still best friends—close as “peanut butter and bacon,” Ralph says at one point. When Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush, is in danger of being unplugged and scrapped for parts after its steering wheel breaks, the pair seek help in the world of the internet, a realm

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman co-direct this animated action adventure co-written by Phil Lord and co-produced by Christopher Miller (the duo best known for directing The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street). Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) becomes the Spider-Man of his version of reality, then crosses into a parallel universe where he teams with other realities’ Spider-Men and a SpiderWoman to stop a an evil that threatens all realities. Superhero team-ups are most satisfying when the juggling of characters is completely undetectable. The audience shouldn’t be thinking about which character’s turn it is in the spotlight, rather why the characters work so well together. For example, what is it that makes Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Noir (a gritty, 1940s private investigator version of Spider-Man) and John Mulaney’s SpiderHam (an anthropomorphic pig whose secret identity is Peter Porker) such a perfect pair? Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse pulls this off but also picks the right point-of-view to watch the story unfold through: Miles Morales, a teenager who gets spidey powers after being bit by a genetically altered spider while tagging an abandoned subway station. Morales returns to the station later to investigate, only to uncover a plot concocted by crime lord Wilson Fisk—aka Kingpin (voiced by Liev Schreiber)—to collide dimensions in order to access parallel universes, but at a deadly cost. What a time it is to be alive for superhero fans. Live action comic book adaptations have been inarguably

Instead of poor people striking it rich and loading up the truck to move to Beverly Hills, the rich Rose family loses it all and is forced to retreat to their sole remaining asset, a tiny town called Schitt’s Creek, which they’d bought years ago as a joke birthday gift for their son. Patriarch Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) was a video store magnate defrauded by his business manager. His vapid socialite wife, Moira (Catherine O’Hara), was a former soap opera actress who

Animated adaptations of costumed crime fighters aren’t new, in home video and television at least. But the big screen treatment for these “cartoons” (a term that Peter Porker considers derogatory) was a rarity … until this year, if the trend catches on. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse does for Marvel what Teen Titans Go! To The Movies did for DC earlier this year: It takes these characters places that live action couldn’t possibly allow (I could be eating these words in a year or so). Despite the comparison to a quite sillier film, SpiderVerse is surprisingly just as earnest as it is humorous. No matter how many one-liners, knee-slappers, and instances of breaking the fourth wall there are, the stakes feel real. Morales is a full-fledged character we root for and sympathize with all the way through. I’m starting to understand why Spider-Ham found the term “cartoon” so demeaning. (117 min.) —Caleb Wiseblood

With the help of a computer-smart kid, she reinvents herself online and parlays her new identity into a revels in her past. Their pampered adult children—vacant Alexis (Annie Murphy) and pansexual David (Dan Levy, Eugene’s real-life son)—have never had to work a day in their lives. Suddenly they find themselves living in two adjacent rooms in a dingy motel, feeling at odds with their unsophisticated neighbors such as town namesake and mayor Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott); his wife, Jocelyn (Jennifer Robertson); motel manager Stevie (Emily Hampshire); and town veterinarian Ted Mullins (Dustin Milligan). Dan Levy conceived of the premise while watching reality TV, wondering, for instance, what the Kardashians would be like if they suddenly found themselves poor. He enlisted his father, Eugene, who came up with the show’s title, and together they’re the co-creators and executive producers. Overall, the tone

is relentlessly droll, and while I’m loving this show thanks to its brisk 22-minute episodes and clever banter, it definitely doesn’t connect with all viewers and reviewers, many of whom have panned it. I find the interplay between the various characters engaging, and the dynamics among this once wealthy family explore the importance of togetherness and support. Moira and Johnny are a team, but Moira’s pretentiousness often overwhelms Johnny. Alexis and David are frequently at odds, in part because Alexis is completely obtuse. They’re fun to laugh at—rich people getting their just deserts! But you also come to like them because, deep down, they’re decent human beings. Eugene Levy is a comedy pro, having appeared in classics such as Best in Show, American Pie, and A Mighty Wind. His son, Dan, has definitely inherited his father’s comedic timing … and eyebrows! The father and son are pretty fun together. The real standout of the show, however, is O’Hara, who’s costarred with Levy in a number of films. Their chemistry together is amazing, and her subtle facial expressions are remarkable. She’s a terrific actor. Chris Elliott as the bumbling mayor is also good for a lot of laughs. Roland means well, but can’t seem to do much right. Yes, this is broad comedy, but it’s genuinely funny! It’s not, however, especially deep, but if you’re looking for some lighthearted fun, quality acting, zippy storylines, and a character named Roland Schitt (Get it? Roll in shit?), check out Schitt’s Creek. (four seasons, 22 min. episodes.) Δ —Glen Starkey

Flavor FLAVOR from page 38

Sonoma’s staggeringly beautiful Hirsch Vineyards, arguably one of the most famous pinot noir producers in the world. By a stroke of luck, Delmore lands a live-in job at the remote winery, a character in and of itself. There was blood, sweat, carnage, and bee stings (hence the yellow jacket on the cover). There were egos to contend with, weed, wild women, and a whole lot of self-discovery—but you can read it for yourself. The author’s equally vivid and self aware sequel offers up even more behind-the-scenes cellar calamity, dark humor, and pest-dodging (this book comes with a very large spider on the cover, but it could just as well feature a snake). Does Delmore find what he’s seeking in Barossa Valley, Australia, home of the oldest vines in the world? Will he ever get his life together and become a “real winemaker?” If you know Delmore, who has written for Wine Spectator, is

Press materials tease that Delmore’s newest harvest tell-all details something ‘in the vein of MTV’s The Real World or Survivor, where people from all walks of life have to live and work in close quarters for a burst of time.’ national sales manager for Tablas Creek Vineyard, and mans his own oceaninfluenced wine label (aptly named “Delmore”), then you kind of know the answer to that question. None of this is really a spoiler, though as the satisfaction of this and any good memoir comes from thought, not plot. You will get sucked into the juicy confessions, the daily winery struggles, and the twists of fate that pepper the writer’s path toward self-actualization. As with anything in life, the people met along the way are what truly color the story.

Set down under at Two Hands Wines, in what the owner of the winery calls “the great social experiment,” Delmore is chiseled into something akin to a second draft of the winemaker he aims to become. Press materials tease that Delmore’s newest harvest tell-all details something “in the vein of MTV’s The Real World or Survivor, where people from all walks of life have to live and work in close quarters for a burst of time.” I would tend to agree. However, when you add in 14-plus hour workdays, alcohol consumption, and the backbreaking stress of peak harvest into the mix, things get a little more than “real.”

Often, Delmore is reminded that he’s far from home, a reoccurring theme in his work. The reader, too, gets the sense that with each chapter, the familiar has faded further into the distance. Australia is a big place, so big that motorists who find themselves lost in “the bush” have been known to cut down power lines just to flag down help. A fellow cellarhand warns Delmore, “But then, of course, you have to be careful not to electrocute yourself.” Delmore hasn’t just grown closer to becoming the winemaker he always aimed to be; he’s also grown into his own style and voice as a writer.

(March 21-April 19): I suspect that in 2019 you’ll be able to blend a knack for creating more stability with an urge to explore and seek greater freedom. How might this unusual confluence be expressed in practical ways? Maybe you’ll travel to reconnect with your ancestral roots. Or perhaps a faraway ally or influence will help you feel more at home in the world. It’s possible you’ll establish a stronger foundation, which will in turn bolster your courage and inspire you to break free of a limitation. What do you think?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): On the average, a total eclipse of the sun happens every 18 months. And how often is a total solar eclipse visible from a specific location on the planet? Typically, once every 375 years. In 2019, the magic moment will occur on July 2 for people living in Chile and Argentina. But I believe that throughout the coming year, Tauruses all over the world will experience other kinds of rare and wonderful events at a higher rate than usual. Not eclipses, but rather divine interventions, mysterious miracles, catalytic epiphanies, unexpected breakthroughs, and amazing graces. Expect more of the marvelous than you’re accustomed to.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “The world’s full of people who have stopped listening to themselves,” wrote mythologist Joseph Campbell. It’s imperative that you NOT be one of those folks. 2019 should be the Year of Listening Deeply to Yourself. That means being on high alert for your inner inklings, your unconscious longings, and the still, small voice at the heart of your destiny. If you do that, you’ll discover I’m right when I say that you’re smarter than you realize.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Jackson Pollock is regarded as a pioneer in the technique of drip painting, which involves drizzling and splashing paint on canvases that lie on the floor. It made him famous. But the truth is, Pollock got inspired to pursue what became known as his signature style only after he saw an exhibit by the artist Janet Sobel, who was the real pioneer. I bring this to your attention, because I see 2019 as a year when the Janet Sobel-like aspects of your life will get their due. Overdue appreciation will arrive. Credit you have deserved but haven’t fully garnered will finally come your way. You’ll be acknowledged and recognized in surprising ways.

(July 23-Aug. 22): As the crow flies, Wyoming is almost a thousand miles from the Pacific Ocean and more than a thousand miles from the Gulf of Mexico, which is part of the Atlantic Ocean. Now here’s a surprise: in the northwest corner of Wyoming, the North Two Ocean Creek divides into two tributaries, one of which ultimately flows to the Pacific and one that reaches the Gulf. So an enterprising fish could conceivably swim from one ocean to the other via this waterway. I propose that we make North Two Ocean Creek your official metaphor for 2019. It will symbolize the turning point you’ll be at in your life; it will remind you that you’ll have the power to launch an epic journey in one of two directions.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I have come to the conclusion that softening your relationship with perfectionism will be a key assignment in 2019. With this in mind, I offer you observations from wise people who have studied the subject. 1. “The perfect is the enemy of the good.” —Voltaire 2. “Perfection is a stick with which to beat the possible.” — Rebecca Solnit 3. Perfectionism is “the high-end version of fear.” —Elizabeth Gilbert 4. “Nothing is less efficient than perfectionism.” —Elizabeth Gilbert 4. “It’s better to live your own life imperfectly than to imitate someone else’s perfectly.” —Elizabeth Gilbert (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In 1682, Peter Alexeyevich became co-Tsar of Russia. He was 10 years old. His 24-year-old half-sister

Sophia had a hole cut in the back of his side of the dual throne. That way she could sit behind him, out of sight, and whisper guidance as he discussed political matters with allies. I’d love it if you could wangle a comparable arrangement for yourself in 2019. Are there wise confidants or mentors or helpers from whom you could draw continuous counsel? Seek them out.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The body of the violin has two f-shaped holes on either side of the strings. They enable the sound that resonates inside the instrument to be projected outwardly. A thousand years ago, the earliest ancestor of the modern violin had round holes. Later they became halfmoons, then c-shaped, and finally evolved into the f-shape. Why the change? Scientific analysis reveals that the modern form allows more air to be pushed out from inside the instrument, thereby producing a more powerful sound. My analysis of your life in 2019 suggests it will be a time to make an upgrade from your metaphorical equivalent of the c-shaped holes to the f-shaped holes. A small shift like that will enable you to generate more power and resonance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian singer-songwriter Sia has achieved great success, garnering nine Grammy nominations and amassing a $20 million fortune. Among the superstars for whom she has composed hit tunes are Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Flo Rida. But she has also had failures. Top recording artists like Adele and Shakira have commissioned her to write songs for them only to subsequently turn down what she created. In 2016, Sia got sweet revenge. She released an album in which she herself sang many of those rejected songs. It has sold more than 2 million copies. Do you, too, know what it’s like to have your gifts and skills ignored or unused or rebuffed, Sagittarius? If so, the coming months will be an excellent time to express them for your own benefit, as Sia did.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A typical fluffy white cumulus cloud weighs 216,000 pounds. A dark cumulonimbus storm cloud is 106 million pounds, almost 490 times heavier. Why? Because it’s filled with far more water than the white cloud. So which is better, the fluffy cumulus or the stormy cumolonimbus? Neither, of course. We might sometimes prefer the former over the latter because it doesn’t darken the sky as much or cause the inconvenience of rain. But the truth is, the cumulonimbus is a blessing; a substantial source of moisture; a gift to growing things. I mention this because I suspect that for you, 2019 will have more metaphorical resemblances to the cumulonimbus than the cumulus.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A hundred years ago, most astronomers thought there was just one galaxy in the universe: our Milky Way. Other models for the structure of the universe were virtually heretical. But in the 1920s, astronomer Edwin Hubble produced research that proved the existence of many more galaxies. Today the estimate is that there are at least 400 billion. I wonder what currently unimaginable possibilities will be obvious to our ancestors a hundred years from now. Likewise, I wonder what currently unforeseen truths will be fully available to you by the end of 2019. My guess: more than in any other previous year of your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Author Elizabeth Gilbert offers advice for those who long for a closer relationship with the Supreme Being: “Look for God like a man with his head on fire looks for water.” I’ll expand that approach so it applies to you when you’re in quest of any crucial life-enhancing experience. If you genuinely believe that a particular adventure or relationship or transformation is key to your central purpose, it’s not enough to be mildly enthusiastic about it. You really do need to seek your heart’s desire in the way people with their heads on fire look for water. 2019 will be prime time for you to embody this understanding. ∆
