Just a Thought

By Bob Chute

Summer is here and we’ll be hoping

for rain...only seems fair since

we didn’t receive our usual allotment

during what was supposed to

be Winter and Spring, wouldn’t you

agree? Paso Robles seasonal rainfall

total as of March 24, 2014 was only

4.99,” far below our average of 14.33,”

Nacimiento Lake is just 22% of capacity

when it is normally at 62% this

time of the year. Meanwhile, please

watch your water usage and be oh so

very careful working outdoors, everything

is so dry and the potential for

wildfires is very real.

I love Summers in Paso! Barbecues,

Concerts in the Park (starting Friday,

June 20) plus other events downtown

presented by Main Street. The Vina

Robles Amphitheatre rolls into it’s

second year of concerts and we’ve already

signed up for three of them! Our

many wineries always offer an array of

awesome things to do! Plus, we’ll have

4th of July Fireworks over the Park as

part of our continuing City’s 125th

Anniversary Celebration (story, pg.

18), and the California Mid State Fair

is just around the corner, running July

16 to 27 this year.

We have a line-up of several interesting

stories for you this month...

Chris Weygandt Alba continues her

Historical series on page 24, this time

Spotlighting the 1887 Revolution in

Paso - End of Frontier Town; Grace

Pucci, celebrates four young ladies

on page 12 achieving Girl Scouting’s

Highest Honor -

The Gold Award,

the equivalent of

the Boy Scout’s

Eagle Badge. With Father’s Day on

Sunday, June 15, Val Poalillo writes

a fun story about her father-in-law

Charles Poalillo and all he’s accomplished

in his incredible life (pg. 20);

plus much more.

There’s a lot of activity on the business

front as well with SMITH MO-

TORGROUP opening at 2nd and

Spring (pg. 50); plans are underway

for the Pine Street Promenade and

potential Paso Robles Center for the

Performing Arts, by local developers

Brett Van Steenwhy and Debbie

Lorenz. Plus, we introduce a new column

The Voice of the Visitor Center

by Karyl Lammers explaining their

expanded role within the remodeled

Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce

building on Park Street downtown.

So, put your feet up and enjoy.

Personal: We’ll be attending

son-in-law Bradley Lear’s graduation

party this month...he recently

completed his Master’s Degree at

Santa Clara University...awesome!

Should be a fun

time...major congrats

to Brad and

Brad & Kelly

to daughter, Kelly,

for supporting him

and holding down the home front

through the years of night school and

seemingly endless homework!

My Bicentennial Baby Boy, Benjamin,

turns 38 on June 2...is that

possible? Here’s a great photo of him

with his wife, Alissa, during a getaway

they had recently

in Siesta Key, Florida.

They reside in

A successful WWW6

We sure had fun with

the Estrella Warbirds and

Woodland Auto Display

WWW6 last month. Another

great turnout, in cars

and visitors to the Museums

Open Houses and

Car Show.

Special Guest, 3-Time

Indianapolis 500 Winner Bobby Unser,

was a hoot at his Meet and Greet the

night before at Le Vigne Winery. I

did a Q&A with him that was a blast,

then the audience members were

able to ask him a bunch of questions

that he graciously answered, spun

between his great stories. This was a

new feature this year...I hope they

keep it for WWW7 and beyond. I

wonder which superstar Dick Woodland

will land for 2015!

Unser signed a ton of autographs

that night and also during the Saturday

event, plus he helped Dick

select the winner of his prestigious

Woodland Auto Display Choice

of Show Perpetual Trophy...congratulations

to Larry Lundin (car

pictured).

Fun times were had by all and a

million thanks to all the volunteers

that made it possible...take a bow,

a job well done!

EDUCATION & YOUTH

By Grace Pucci

Paso Robles is a community

where people help one another.

When there is a need, Paso

Roblans step forward and meet

that need, and that trait of

selflessness runs right through to

its young people. In that spirit,

please meet four young ladies

who have made a real impact

on our town through their

Gold Award Projects with Girl

Scout Troop 40028. They are

Brittney Ellart, Claire Verzin,

Zoe Zepp and Sydney Throop.

The Gold Award is akin to

the Boy Scouts Eagle Scout

Award and is the highest

honor a Girl Scout can attain.

The projects are designed

to build skills in leadership,

organization, overcoming obstacles,

inspiring others, and

most importantly to encourage

proactive participation within

their community. Each of

these four young women selected

projects which challenged

both their perception of themselves

and their ability to respond

to a need they had discovered in their hometown.

They wanted to give back to a community

that had supported them through their

years in the Girl Scouts.

For her project, Brittney Ellart chose to

paint and refurbish the interior of the main

room at the El Paso de Robles Grange Hall

555. Brittney had been in 4-H for seven

years and her group had used the Grange as

their primary meeting place. While attending

those meetings Brittney noticed how the

Hall was in need of sprucing up. She decided

some painting and patching would help bring

the Hall up to date so it could remain an

important meeting place for generations to

come. So on a very warm late summer weekend,

a group of intrepid volunteers gathered

together by Brittney, showed up with paint,

brushes, sanders, hammers and nails, and set

to work at her direction. Several days later the

hall was freshly painted, the stage was refurbished

and the Grange logo was hand-painted

onto the back wall, new crown moldings and

a chair rail were installed and two shadow

boxes were revived and Grange memorabilia

was placed inside. Working with

Lester Rougeot, funds were raised for the

supplies through a pancake breakfast at the

Grange.

Canyon Creek is a low-income housing

development that provides a city-run after

school Youth Educational Exchange Program

(YEEP) at its community center. The

program offers a healthy after-school snack,

and requires completion of homework before

the students go home in the late afternoon.

However there were no organized activities

Highest Honor:

and Co-Leader June Ellart.

for the young people once their homework

was complete. Claire Verzin wanted to fill that

gap - so for her Gold Award Project she assisted

the older children in developing a play

that would bring all the different age groups

together to create the final project. Claire

helped the students write the play, but it was

based entirely on their own ideas. Students

at every age level worked collectively to rehearse,

build the sets, and make costumes

with the goal of presenting the play to family

members at the end of the school year. Claire

sought out donated supplies for set materials

and costumes. Her goal was to provide the

participants with a sense of accomplishment

and give them the confidence to successfully

strike out in new directions, taking on projects

they might otherwise not attempt. When

the successful “Girls Choice Awards” was

finally performed family and friends were not

only entertained but proud and impressed

by what these young students had managed

to accomplish.

For many years, Zoe Zepp who was on the

water polo and swim teams at Paso Robles

High School, and had participated in sport

activities at the Paso Robles Community

Pool. She noticed that the team room at the

pool needed refurbishing so for her Gold

Award Project she planned to give the room

a freshening up, by repainting all of the walls

and adding a bulletin board. Zoe understood

that the pool received no funding for maintenance

so she decided to take on the project

that would eventually benefit everyone

who used the pool. With the help of Randy

Stinchfield, Zoe learned how to construct

the bulletin board, Lowes donated

all of the supplies, and with the

help of her parents and friends

she was able to paint the team

room and provide it with a brand

new, very large bulletin board.

Zoe hoped that by improving

the facility the city leaders might

be convinced, in a time of scarce

funds, that there was real community

interest in the pool and it

should remain open.

At Paso Robles High School

the storage space for costumes

used by drama students was chaotic

and dirty. Throughout her

high school years, Sydney Throop

had participated in drama activities

at the school including costuming,

stage manager and even

acting in productions. Costumes

being such an integral part of each

production, Sydney understood

that the manner in which they

were stored was not the best

method for safely preserving

them for future use. For her Gold

Award Project, Sydney and her

volunteers removed all the costumes

from the old area, cleaned

it up, and then created a new, clean, organized

storage space within the new theater facility

at the high school. With donations from

Lowes, she installed shelves and bins in the

“costume hall” to safely hold all the costumes.

She went through everything and determined

what to keep and what had to go,

then organized and labeled the bins and

shelves so everything was easily accessible and

simple to find.

These projects involved a great deal of planning

and execution and through it all each

of these girls remained on the honor roll at

school and continued to participate in their

regular extracurricular activities.

And there was one final generous action

taken by the girls as they closed this chapter in

their young lives. Each year as the girls raised

money for their troop through yard sales, and

the sales of cookies, they managed to put a

little aside for one last Girl Scout adventure.

When everyone sat down to determine what

to do with the money...a trip to Disneyland,

river rafting, etc., the decision was made by

these dedicated Scouts to make a donation

to further benefit their town. So a check for

$1,000 was presented to the Paso Robles Rec

Department to be used toward the planned

children’s playground in the downtown city

park. Ultimately, the community was the beneficiary

of these projects, but in retrospect,

each of these young women gained valuable

insights into themselves and discovered they

possess strengths that will serve them as they

move into the next chapter of their lives and

continue to make their community a better

place to live.

Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation – The Spirit of ‘I Can!’

By Millie Drum

Since Vicki Lee became Executive

Director two years ago, the pace

at PRYAF has “stepped up!” In addition

to running the nonprofit that

offers 47 classes with 500 slots for

students, coordinating live performances,

supervising staff and volunteers

and community outreach, Vicki

takes time to give every student and

parent the personal attention that

truly makes PRYAF a second home

for many families.

Vicki adds, “The kids respect

us and we teach them the spirit of

‘I can!’ Our teachers have heart.

Vickie Lee with 2 members

dents that tutor the younger kids

with their homework. I’ve had kids

walk from the high school to get

here in time for their classes.”

When asked what makes her

role at PRYAF so rewarding, Vicki

Amanda Gonzales has been here

since day one. She’s watching her

first student that came to her at 5

years old graduate from high school

this year! To watch what goes on

here is amazing. We have older stureplied,

“It happened just recently

when some kids in band class wrote

their own songs. I was asked to sit in

on the class and heard how PRYAF

and Donna Berg’s dream changed

their lives. Of course I cried knowing

they understand why PRYAF

was put here. The kids learn respect

and take someone new under their

wing. In two years I’ve seen little

girls turn into young ladies.”

Paso High Bearcat coaches & players lead annual camp to raise funds

Girls’ basketball camp set for June 16-19

Aspiring girl basketball players

from throughout San Luis Obispo

County are invited to participate in

a one-of-a-kind skills camp, led by

two local basketball luminaries, June

16-19 from 9 a.m.-Noon. The camp

will include hands-on help from 12

players-turned-coaches from the

Paso Robles High School’s varsity

girls’ basketball team as well as the

Bearcat coaching staff.

Heidi Wittstrom Sill, PRHS varsity

coach, former three-year All-

League player for the Bearcats and

former Division 1 basketball team

captain with Cal Poly, will lead the

camp. She will be joined by Scott

Larson, a local legend for his service

as the school’s boys’ basketball coach

for 32 years. Larson is known as a

“shooting guru” with a focus on fundamentals,

repetition and execution.

“With the help of our varsity basketball

players, we are going to have

one instructor for every five or six

girls,” Wittstrom Sill said. “The high

level of personal hands-on instruction

is what makes this camp different. We

will emphasize the fun of the game,

but every girl will also walk away with

new-found skills and confidence.”

The camp will consist of a combination

of small station drills, full

court games, team drills and group

lectures designed to advance player

knowledge of the game and will provide

a total of 12 hours of personal

instruction and is open to 4th through

9th graders of all skill levels.

Charles and Joyce at the

Academy Awards April 2,

1974, at the Dorothy

Chandler Pavilion,

Los Angeles.

M

any of you know my

father-in-law, Charles

Poalillo, as a grape grower,

professional winemaker and

winery owner. Or perhaps he

was your Realtor. Or from

Wines & Steins, or Exchange

Club or maybe he “shot”

your wedding; and because

of these things, you also call

him “friend.” Two things I

know for sure about Charles

A. Poalillo is that he loves

photography, wine, and most

of all his friends and family!

Charles’ love for photography

began around age

16 when his Uncle Paul,

“who knew lots about almost

everything,” built a dark room in their basement

and taught Charles how to process negatives. This left

a lasting impression.

Charles moved from Connecticut to the Los Angeles

area in 1945, with his parents and two sisters, just before

his senior year in high school. There is still a hint of

the east coast in his speech. Was that hard for him?

“Nope,” he says as he throws up his hands and shrugs

his shoulders in his classic Italian way; “No, not really.

My parents needed to move; so we moved!”

Fortunately for Charles, he registered at Fremont High

School on S. San Pedro St.; which offered a photography

class from Clarence A. Bach; founder of the first

photo-journalism course in the United States. Many of

Bach’s students went on to be photographers for “the war,”

LIFE magazine & Sports Illustrated. Charles was soon

in charge of taking pictures for the school newspaper and

taking movies of football games for the coaches. Charles

was one of three top students academically that year and

he gave a speech at his graduation.

Bach recommended Charles, now 19 years old, to

the Los Angeles Daily News, which launched his professional

photographic career. His starting pay was

making $31 per week! Memorably, January 15, 1947,

during the first weeks of Charles working for the newspaper,

while running the telephoto machine, Charles saw

the soon to be published photos of the gruesome Black

Dahlia murder. The story later became the subject of a

Hollywood movie.

Charles and Joyce: The early

days of wine making.

Charles learning to ski in Sun Valley,

Idaho with the local ski bunnies!

Charles Poalillo shooting an

original selfie with fellow

reporter circa 1954.

It’s 1963 and Charles is

using a Nikon 35mm.

“As a general assignment photographer,

I shot society teas to forest fires,

sports events to homicides...sometimes

all in the same day!” Charles explains with

his wide smile.

Later Charles transferred to the Sun

Valley News Bureau covering events at

the ski resort. The previous cameraman

had broken his leg skiing while working

on an assignment. Charles was told by his

boss in Los Angeles not to ski at the new

job; to which he replied, “No problem! I

don’t know how!” When Charles reported

for duty in Idaho, the chief photographer

asked him if he knew how to ski? It turns

out you have to ski to do the job. “So I

learned how to ski and I loved it!”`

It was during the newspaper days that

Charles met Joyce; in 1952. Charles says

he wooed Joyce by taking her out on

assignments and sometimes including

her in the shots. Married April 10,

1954, Joyce and Charles led a storybook

life. Many of you know what an amazing

partnership that was.

In 1955, Charles founded Vanguard

Photography, in Hollywood, CA. He specialized

in public relations and publicity

photos. Charlie proudly tells, “I covered

seven presidents; from Truman to Reagan!”

He also was a core photographer

at twenty-four Academy Awards; many

times with wife, Joyce, by his side, helping

to keep him organized. Later, the three

children, Susan, Andy (my husband) and

Richard (passed in 2004), each had an opportunity

to write the names of the award

winners and presenters. Charles, being

a great dad, made sure they each had a

photo with their favorite star that year!

Charles often found a way to blend

family with business. Joyce and the three

children were always in view of his lens.

For a few years Charles was a cruise

photographer; so the family would take

cruises together.

FATHER’S DAY from page 20

Once Charles got a gig to cover a car at

the Baja 500 and other races and events,

so he and Andy headed south to cover the

event. As fate would have it, the race car

they were covering broke down very early

on. “That’s life!” says Charlie.

The volumes of photos, especially the

wonderful black and whites of family and

famous people, are found throughout the

Willow Creek home. When you ask Charlie

about all the famous people he met and

all the wonderful events he covered he says,

”I was never star struck. Nope. They were

just like everybody else. It was my job to

take their picture and I was good at it.”

In 1973, after many years of

picking Paso Robles grapes and

making garage wine with friends

in the San Fernando Valley;

Charles presented the idea to

Joyce to purchase the 121-acre

Casteel Ranch, and move to Paso

Robles...to which she immediately

agreed! Charlie calls this decision

“Life Improving.”

Joyce and Charlie later sold

the ranch and the photography

business and purchased the

Willow Creek property in 1979.

Charles and colleagues covering

football at the Coliseum. Notice the

jackets and ties!

Charles ran the Daily News

Mobile Telephoto Unit.

Numerous family and friends helped

plant the vineyard, assisted with almost

thirty harvests, created countless gallons of

wine and created many wonderful memories.

Joyce and Charlie opened Poalillo

Vineyards in 1995; which is now owned and

operated by daughter Susan and son-in-law,

After the passing of his beloved Joyce

Willow Creek home. To support Charlie,

now 85 years old, Andy and I have moved

in with him, so he can stay in the place

into a career; and then do it

again and again.

1887

Two Simultaneous Incidents Triggered HISTORIC Repercussions

In 1887, a revolution exploded in the dirt streets of Paso

Robles The events of that year marked the end of a frontier

town and sparked a great celebration.

Citizens and visitors from far and wide streamed into the

village to commemorate the occasion, and the new Masonic

Lodge threw the party of the century.

FIRST STEEL BRIDGE

The new steel bridge over the Salinas River revolutionized

the town when it opened in 1887. Commerce and traffic

had year-round access on the important trade route

between the community and the east plains.

Courtesy Eighteen Ninety House

(

Those who witnessed and documented the events –

the town’s first newspaper, the recordkeepers of the Paso

Robles Masonic Lodge – saw the future spinning toward

them. Their artifacts let us view, through their eyes,

what happened 127 years ago.

It started with a bridge and a building.

COMMENT - BRIDGING THE SALINAS

“A new civilization is crossing from the past to the present.

The success of the Roman empire was due as much to its road

and bridge builders as to its armed legions...abundant facilities

for transportation form the basis of civil stability as well as afford

means for the extension of commerce.”

Paso Robles Leader 1887

The New Bridge

With railway connections to San Francisco and the world

beyond, El Paso de Robles Springs was now subdivided,

mapped, and sprouting like an acorn. So were the farms and

homesteads on the plains east of the little valley.

Wagon teams and carriages rumbled up and down the streets

of the business district, north, south, east, and west... until the

Salinas River woke up from its underground nap in the winter,

full of rain and raging through the valley.

In the dry season, traffic rode freely east and west, on a riverbed

track strewn with straw. But there was no bridge for a team to

cross a flooded channel, so east/west commerce stopped when

the rain started, as it did routinely every year. The Salinas River

was an impediment to progress.

Progress was remarkable to Daniel and James Blackburn. They

had stood on this spot when it offered only water and rough shelter

on a trail in the big emptiness of California, 20 years earlier.

“Progress” in 1857 was the periodic stagecoach, ferrying the

hopeful in search of their fortunes.

Daniel Blackburn had been more fortunate than most in the

’49 Gold Rush. A few months in the gold fields, with thousands

Paso Robles Celebrates 125 Years

by Chris Weygandt Alba

(

EYEWITNESS - The first newspaper PASO ROBLES

LEADER arrived in town in 1886 and documented the circumstances,

incidents, and repercussions of 1887. Publisher Horace

Wright shared weekly insights and personal opinions too.

The Principals

Paso Robles hit milestone 1887 at a gallop. This was the

year of speed.

Action packed the pages of the LEADER newspaper every

week. New facilities and new merchandise. Construction

projects. A scarcity of lumber and carpenters. A news flash from

the brickmakers: One million bricks,

sold for hotel! Adding more kilns!

That’s when the civilized world’s

oldest civic organization called Daniel

Blackburn with a mission: This

rambunctious town really needs a

Masonic Lodge. People are moving

in all different directions, and Masons

will pull this town together.

Masons were builders, men with

Thaddeus Sherman,

Master Mason

ideas. They had shaped America.

They were presidents (George Washington)

and visionaries (Ben Franklin),

explorers (Merriweather Lewis) and social reformers (Mark

Twain). The Masonic fraternity was centuries old and regarded

as ethical men who benefitted their communities.

(

PREDICTION - IMPACT ON FUTURE

“THEIR MERITORIOUS PUBLIC SERVICE will make tens of

thousands of fertile acres a source of profit to Templeton and

Paso Robles...give the park frontage a genuine metropolitan air.”

Paso Robles Leader 1887

The Blackburns were naturals at this sort of work, and living

in the vicinity was Master Mason Thaddeus Sherman, who was

qualified to establish a Lodge. Events spun like a newsreel.

March: 15 men decide to form a Masonic Lodge.

April: Formal meeting, elect Mr. Sherman to obtain official

status for the Paso Robles Masonic Lodge.

April - May: Daniel Blackburn owns a prime lot on 12th

Street and determines he will build a spectacular Masonic Hall.

Bridge progresses satisfactorily.

June 6, 1887: Paso Robles Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons,

is now official. First project: REVOLUTION!

(

PREDICTION - IMPACT ON FUTURE

“THE OLDEST SETTLERS in this section will live to see here a

transformation beyond their wildest expectations.”

Paso Robles Leader 1887

of men who had nothing but hope, proved that shrewd men made

fortunes by supplying human needs. He had parlayed his grubstake

into food, more precious than gold.

That bought the shelter on the stagecoach track and 26,000

acres. There were needs here too. The Blackburn brothers started

building.

Next thing you know, you got yourself a busy town. Horsepowered

traffic jams. Hungry for more carpenters, more lumber,

more bricks, more infrastructure!

Now you have a major east/west trade route to expansion,

but it’s impassable in the winter. Now you need a steel bridge.

The Blackburn Bros. & James partnership took matters

into their own hands. They ordered a bridge and funded it

themselves.

(

PREDICTION - IMPACT ON FUTURE

“EXPECT the greatest influx of settlers in search of permanent

residence...acres in fruit and vines...a revolution in land values...

The name of Paso Robles will become a household word.”

Paso Robles Leader 1887

y Chris Weygandt Alba

June 1887

I

n a single year, pioneers had

transformed a 30-year-old outpost

in the wilderness into a civilized

society. Multitudes poured into the

town square from every direction

to welcome the great occasion.

LANDMARK BUILDING

WHEN 1887 DAWNED, there was

no city and no city government. There was

no majestic spa resort on the town square,

famous with the rich and sickly. There was

no majestic anything. The largest things in

the landscape were the oak trees.

The village numbered 500 citizens, give

or take, and reported 100 structures in the

settlement. A person could stand at the corner

of 11th and Spring and see practically

all of them.

There was still a watering hole at the

stagecoach stop 20 years ago. Now the dirt

streets in the business district were dotted

with wood-frame storefronts and unfinished

planks.

A hamlet hammered together with lumber

and nails witnessed the sudden appearance

of the “Adams Block” with astonishment

in 1887. “A rare combination of beauty and

artistic taste” transformed the town square

like an impeccable suit on man who has

trudged through a wilderness.

The first metropolitan enterprise ever

built in the Pass of the Oaks, the Adams

building dominated the intersection of 12th

and Spring. As it rose in the spring, the

new weekly PASO ROBLES LEADER

avidly charted the progress of “the greatest

center of attraction in town.”

The Great Wonder on 12th & Spring: The Adams Block and Masonic Hall.

The sophisticated Adams Block was

metropolitan but totally homegrown – built

with the brick, lime, and stone of Paso

Robles. It had inventive arches, cathedralglass

transoms, even the latest pipes installed

for the future arrival of gas. Plus the first

cement sidewalks outside of San Luis

Obispo.

As crews finished the interior in June, the

LEADER declared the Adams Block was

even bigger that it appeared: It was the forerunner

of a genuine metropolis. Big projects

had lined up.

In fact, one already broke ground beside

the Adams itself. The new Masonic Hall,

Town square, 1870s

built by Mason member Daniel Blackburn,

would mysteriously, swiftly, merge into the

Adams Block and double the magnificence.

The laying of Masonic cornerstone on

June 24 kicked off the biggest Jubilee the

town had ever seen. The news spread from

San Luis Obispo to San Francisco before

the ink was dry on the official charter of

the new Masonic Lodge of Paso Robles.

The Masons invited one and all to their

celebration of the century, saluting three

momentous milestones: Spectacular edifice

in the town square! Distinguished civic

organization! Revolutionary steel bridge to

the world beyond! Leave your pocketbooks

at home.

They had done the astonishing in 1887,

and they did it together – all 500-some

citizens and countless visitors, all the settlers

nearby, and the Blackburn-James partnership

that had invested in the town of

Paso Robles.

They gave thanks together on June 24, In

the year of our Lord 1887, a salute to feats

achieved by HAMMER and PLOW,

FOOD and THREAD, cornerstone by

cornerstone.

PHOTOS OF JUNE 24, 1887

Business district draws multitudes to

Paso Robles, charms countless visitors.

On a hot Friday afternoon, celebrants and

conveyances packed the dirt streets in the

town square, as the historic moment began

at 2 p.m.

With stirring band anthems and ceremonial

speeches, the jubilant parade processed

on foot, from the laying of the Masonic Hall

cornerstone, down to the Blackburn Bros.

& James bridge, across the river to Mr.

James Blackburn’s al fresco barbecue, back

up to the square, and thence to dance long

into evening.

The town’s newspaper records a diverse

group of citizens that summer. Some new

arrivals pitched tents on the streets and

moved in. Some parties ordered 48,000 fruit

and ornamental trees to plant in the coming

season. Others had eggs to sell to the merchant

who paid the highest prices.

Visitors waited for builders to make homes.

Builders were stymied by shortages of carpenters,

lumber and brick. Property owners

would see some dramatic leaps on their

assessment notices in a few weeks.

A stonemason had experimented with the

“cream-colored rock of a chalky nature” handed

over by Mr. Adams, and he cut the local

rock into the first keystone that would anchor

the window arches of the Adams Block.

A True Story

Market Feeds a Town,

Grows a City!

No one paid a nickel for the first steel

bridge, the first urban structure, or the town

celebration, except 15 Masons who provided

supplies. But every man, woman, and child

had contributed to the fund – every time they

went to the town square for life’s necessities.

Everyone needed a tool, a book, a playground,

a meeting of minds. Or provided

a service. Had valuable skills. Ordered new

crops. Discovered uses for limestone. Craved

luxury items and entertainment.

All those transactions put money in the

town treasury of the era – the bank accounts

of the civic leaders who financed the enterprises,

and invested in more sophisticated

facilities.

Hence: A thriving marketplace. A civic

group to benefit the community. A dependable

bridge to the world beyond.

Bridges and Buildings

(127 Years Later)

Engines of every variety have driven

Paso Robles across one frontier after

another. Wheat. Drought. Health spa.

World War. Almonds. Depression. Global

War. Expansion. Wine. Disaster. Recovery.

Industries have boomed and faded as

the town forged through everything from

homesteads to urban renewal. But the forces

of 1887 are still at work in the heart of the

city. The town square is still the source of essential

supplies – to meet the higher needs of

humanity for relationships and enrichment.

1887 HISTORY from page 27

The National Trust for Historic Preservation

helps the Paso Robles Main Street

program care for the marketplace. Frontier

town squares are fragile things in modern

society, where big boxes on the outskirts

supply the basic needs.

The Main Street answer is... Bridges and

Buildings. Same as 1887. Build connections

between people, and lay cornerstones

for the future.

The bridge and the building are long

gone, one in a flood and one to a wrecking

ball. But Paso Robles is still a robust town

on the frontier.

With bridges to the world beyond.

PASO PEOPLE

AT THE LIBRARY

The Library Hosted a Great Peep Show

By Chuck Desmond

Hey Chuck, did you make a

typo up there in the title?

Nope, read on! The Library

at El Paso de Robles is

a happenin’ place these days.

Library Manager Karen

Christiansen has added two

important staff to the roster:

Heather Stephenson and Leslie Gomes.

The ladies are kickin’ it up a notch!

The middle of April was National

Library Week and as part of the celebration,

Heather started the 1st ever

(for Paso anyway) Peeps Diorama Contest.

Peeps are those little marshmallows

that come as sugary figurines.

Thus, the challenge was to create the most

exciting diorama made from them and

have a 4-level contest of children, teens,

adults and library staff.

Each diorama had to be

based on a book that the

contestant had read and

all the characters had to be

from peeps.

Over 50 entries were

One of the dioramas

Wendi Dam-Mikkelsen

and Annika

submitted during the four

weeks open-date and over

five hundred and fifty ballots

were then cast! This got to be a really

popular event! Dioramas were awash in

color and creativity. They ranged from hysterical

to serious and were extremely creative

in how a book title was transformed

into marshmallow-peep entries. The various

puns on the word “peeps” was just as

ingenious and the list just

kept growing. Each one

based on a book title was

more funny than the one

before. “A Tale of Peeps

in Two Cities” is a great

example.

First, second and third

place winners in each category

were chosen and on

May 7, in the Children’s Reading

Room, the prizes were handed out.

Sponsors Jamba Juice, Park Century

Cinemas and Powell’s Sweet Shoppe

donated the prizes. Of course each prize

package included a good helping of peeps

for good measure. A crate full of

them was donated by the Peeps’

makers in Pennsylvania.

Wendi Dam-Mikkelsen, an

energetic mom, won first

place in the adult division

and her daughter, Annika,

won first place in the children’s

arena. Sisters, Daniela

and Rosie Singleton

(with a little help from mom, Carol,)

teamed up to take one of the third

place awards and Haelee Rochez

pulled off a solid second place.

Leslie Gomes, the newest

addition to the Library crew

jumped in headlong and she

won the Staff Award with her

entry.

Heather, at the awards ceremony,

said “We couldn’t be more

Karen Christiansen, library

manager; Suzanne Robitaille,

Volunteer coordinator;

Heather Stephenson.

Haelee Rochez

A few of the winners

thrilled with the enthusiasm and support

that the community showed us. It was great

to watch young and old alike, viewing the

entries and then casting their votes. Peeple

( yep, one of the many puns) are already

planning for next year!”

The Summer Reading Program

officially kicks off on

June 16 and runs through

August 23. For children, tweens,

teens and adults, this is an easy

way to do something exceptional

with the family over the

Summer. Not only that, but

with a fabulously well-stocked

library, there are a zillion

books to choose from. Catch

up on those tomes you’ve

been waiting to get to but even more importantly,

get the children to read, read,

read. Reading opens all the nooks and

crevices in the brain and every

single study shows that children

who read and read a lot, do far

better at everything that life

throws their way. Take advantage

of the opportunity to grow

closer as a family!

Reading logs and activities

based on a “Science Theme”

are the focus this year. At each reading

level, prizes will be awarded at the end of

the session.

The Library is on the ground floor at

1000 Spring St. and is open Monday to Friday

10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday

from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Have

some questions? Call Heather

Stephenson at 237-3870. Maybe

you’d like to be a volunteer?

Call Suzanne Robitaille at the

same number.

Event Set for Friday, June 6 One Day. One Dollar.

One Big Challenge to Feed the Hungry

Hunger Awareness Day is a

celebration of giving, and an affirmation

of the power of doing

something together, all at once.

With every gift - small and large

– we witness an outpouring of

compassion in the form of dollars

that are multiplied by a factor

of ten into nutritious food. As

communities endure continuing

economic challenges, feeding

hungry people with nutritious food is a daunting

task. This year, more than ever, the Food Bank

Coalition of San Luis Obispo County is counting

on Hunger Awareness Day to help as many

as 44,000 residents overcome the increased challenge

to feed their families.

Hunger Awareness Day 2014 is set for Friday,

June 6, and the Food Bank is aiming for a campaign

goal of $125,000. This will help to meet the

ever growing demand for food assistance in our

county. Carl Hansen, Chief Executive Officer,

said, “We recently heard in the news that San Luis

Obispo County was voted as the most desirable

place to work in the country. However, 15% of

our county’s population is unemployed or has a

job that does not offer benefits or wages to provide

adequately for their family. Hunger Awareness

Day is an opportunity for those of us who

enjoy our jobs to make the lives of those struggling

much better. We encourage you to help in

this effort with a donation, small or large.

“For those who are struggling to provide enough

food for their families, food insecurity is a reality and

has many negative consequences, those of which

affect children most severely. Information about

the impact of hunger released by Feeding America

shows that insufficient nutrition puts children at

risk for illness and weakens their immune system.

In San Luis Obispo County, children make up 40%

of those served by the Food Bank. This information

helps bring light to why we chose to adopt a formal

nutrition policy in 2013, focusing our efforts into

providing food that contributes to the health of

families in need. One aspect of this is that last year

nearly half of the 6 million pounds of food we distributed

was fresh produce. Additionally 200,000

pounds of that produce was gleaned from local

farms, farmer’s markets, and back yard gardens.

“With our resources for free and low-cost

food, we can stretch $1 into $10 worth of food.”

Local Churches join together for common worship and praise

Breaking Down Barriers

By Bill Hawk

On Sunday morning June 8th at

10:30 a.m. something that likely has

never happened before will take place

in our beautiful downtown city park.

Rather than meeting in their own

locations, over 15 Christian churches

all from different denominations will

come together on a Sunday morning

as one church. This event, sponsored

by the Paso Robles Ministerial Association

is a celebration of the common

essential truths of Christian

churches and a celebration of God’s

blessings on our city in this 125th year.

The organizers felt it was appropriate

to hold such an event on “Pentecost”

Sunday, 50 days after Easter, the day

Christian churches remember what

some call “the birthday of the church”

as recorded in Acts 2.

“We can celebrate our unity and

still appreciate our diversity” says one

of the local pastors. He referred to

the “Mere Christianity” as opposed

to the “My Christianity” that C.S.

Lewis wrote about when he said

that we can respect the social necessity

and value of differing Christian

traditions but celebrate our commonality

in Christ as opposed to our

distinctives. He went on to quote

Augustine as saying “In essentials,

unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all

things, charity.”

For the past several years, there

have been growing signs of unity,

charity and connections between

various Christian churches in Paso

Robles. Numerous churches serve

together to staff Loaves and Fishes

and Christ’s kitchen. Every January,

a Week of Unity gathers Christians

(both Protestant and Catholic) who

earlier this year gathered at seven

different churches. Recently, the

National Day of Prayer was organized

by the ministerial association

and was supported and led by various

local congregations.

“Far from a spirit of competition,

local pastors in the association have

a spirit of appreciation and care for

one another, sharing with and regularly

praying for one another and for

the fruitfulness of each other’s ministry,”

said Pastor Dan Katches.

The service on June 8th will include

leaders from every church

involved with a wide range of music

and liturgy. A community choir

will lead part of the worship and the

association has asked Pastor Don

Smith to bring the message.

Surplus computers

acquired by PRHS

Several months ago Board Member

Bausch made a connection

between the District and surplus

computers and

monitors that

were available

from the Social

Security Administration,”

stated

Dr. Kathleen

McNamara, Superintendent

of Schools, PRFUSD.

“The cost of this technology is the

cost of picking up machines, delivering

them to the Tech Center,

and imaging them with District

software.”

A trip was made by Carl Behmer

and crew to the Roseville area.

The equipment included 198 computers,

215 monitors and miscellaneous

peripherals. The cost to rent

a truck, food & lodging for staff on

the trip, gas, etc. was approximately

$1,000. The approximate value

of the equipment, as used-three

years old, is $60,250. If the District

were to buy this many computers/

monitors it would likely cost near

$200,000.

“Thank you Board Member

Bausch for this valuable connection

and to staff who took a break

from their busy schedules to make

the trip,” added Superintendent

McNamara.

ROUND TOWN

Symphony of the Vines Fundraiser Concert

By Heather Young

Symphony of the Vines has

finished its fourth season and will

host its third annual fundraiser,

“The Pops Spectacular” at Halter

Ranch, 8910 Adelaida Road in

Paso Robles, on Sunday, June 8 at

3 p.m.

The chamber orchestra was

founded by Dr. Gregory Magie,

who is also the conductor, as well as

a pianist and horn player, in 2010.

He said he started the symphony

because he saw a need in the North

County for a professional classical

symphony. The mission of the

symphony is “to engage and enrich

the audience with music and artistry

of the highest caliber.”

The 25 musicians, who range in

age from 16 to 65 and all live in the

county, are paid and rehearse four

times for each concert and one to

three hours a day on their own.

Though the musicians are paid,

the symphony is a nonprofit and

operates on donations and its yearly

fundraiser.

The fundraiser at Halter Ranch

will include G.F. Handel’s “Water

Music,” and J.S. Bach’s “Double

Violin Concerto.” Magie described

the music as classic, “comfortable.”

Last year’s event, Magie said, had

75 people in attendance and raised

$10,000 for the symphony. Since

new wave of cell phone fraudsters

on the move, as I recently discovered:

“Hello? Hello? HELLO?”

“Yes, is this Bruce?”

Resisting the urge to say, ‘who

the h**l wants to know?’ I embark

on a boring lecture about how

the federal Do-Not-Call registry

makes the telemarketer guilty of

a federal crime. They usually hang

up right then.

If I’m quick enough to catch

the telltale delay when I pick up,

I’ll play an intercept message that

goes, “Telecom in New Zealand advises

that the number you have called

either has changed, or is no longer

obtainable. Please call your international

directory service.” A website,

has a collection of similar

the event is held in a barn at the

winery, Magie said it is a better

concert to bring children to

because they can play in the yard

when they can’t sit still any longer.

“Any age is good, but it is a classical

concert, though it is not a

formal, sit-down concert,” Magie

said.

Tickets for the fundraiser are

$40 each, and sponsorship tables

are $200. Tickets are available from

County Perspective

Matt’s Music in Templeton or Boo

Boo Records in San Luis Obispo,

or by calling 235-0687. To become

a sponsor, contact Steve Martin at

296-2487.

“It’s basically to help with our

costs for the next season,” Magie

said. “Musicians are paid – for this

event the musicians are donating

their time.”

sures are down. 177 homeowners

weren’t able to keep up with their

mortgages in the first quarter of

2014, but that’s a sizeable 38%

drop, compared to the 1st quarter

of 2013.

Interestingly, despite being the

6th least affordable housing market

in California – only 24% of us

can afford a home here – the rate

of foreclosure, locally, is among the

lowest in the state.

with Jon Robertson, Marin

Alsop, Gunther Schuller, Gustav

Meier and Neil Varon, and

choral conducting with Donald

Neuen. Magie was director of the

Pasadena Lyric Opera Chorus,

Walnut Creek Presbyterian Church

Choir, and is currently the Chancel

Choir at First Presbyterian in San

Luis Obispo.

With the small orchestra, the

musicians are heard more – for

most instruments there is only

one musician – and must be more

precise because they are so exposed,

which, Magie said, makes the symphony

enjoyable to listen to and

so unique. There is one other symphony

– the SLO Symphony – in

the county.

In addition to the concert, there

will be a 50/50 drawing and silent

and live auctions.

“This is a major fundraiser for

Symphony of the Vines,” Board of

Director Steve Martin said. “It’s an

opportunity to learn more about

Symphony of the Vines. It’s a

group is just superb.”

sages, if you’re interested.

Homes Up: Phones are definitely

ringing in Realtors’ offices.

We knew county house prices were

closing in on record high median

prices after two years of consistent

climb, but now, sales numbers

are up as well. That kind of trend

generally indicates a sustained

housing market.

After taking a price tumble

during the recession, median

home prices in San Luis Obispo

County haven’t yet eclipsed December’s

peak of $475,000, but

at $450,000, they aren’t far away.

Prices took a steep drop in January

to just $400,000, meaning volatility

was still stalking the housing

market, but sales rose by 248 units

or 2.5% in February, according to

the California Realtor’s Association

(CRA).

Some good news; foreclonot

pass constitutional muster.

Opponents say it gives excessive

voting power to larger landowners,

who could theoretically deprive

small property owners of

adequate groundwater. The Sierra

Club wrote to Achadjian, advocating

a one-person, one-vote water

district.

“As few as 35 of the largest landowners

could sweep the 11,000

registered voters...who depend on

wells for all of their water needs,

and they would have no appreciable

vote in the matter,” wrote Jennifer

Clary, Sierra Club clean water

action program associate. “One

vote per acre essentially disenfranchises

the residential population

and tells them that their votes do

not matter.”

Achadjian didn’t immediately

respond to the letter, but most officials

who have addressed the tiered

vote system in AB 2485, see the

bill as a non-starter.

Relay for Life of Paso Robles set for June 21 and 22

One Day, One Night, One Community – ONE FIGHT

By Millie Drum

The American Cancer Society Relay

for Life brings the entire community

together to join the fight against

cancer. It’s a day filled with fellowship,

festivities and yes...fun. It’s a day

when people you know and those you

don’t team up to raise public awareness

about cancer in their own community

and raise funds to find a cure.

The Paso Robles Relay is just a small

part of the worldwide effort to find

a cure for cancer with the theme

“Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back!”

The 24 Hour Relay for Life of Paso

Robles is June 21 and 22 at the Paso

Robles Event Center.

Team Spirit!

To participate in Relay for Life, start

a team, join a team or simply make a

donation, visit the website to register a

team or join a team that needs walkers.

On the day of Relay, team members

take turns walking the track for

24 hours making sure a team member

is present at all times; symbolizing

that cancer never sleeps. Registering

on line gives team the opportunity to

fundraise in the virtual world of the

internet. With each team member

given a home page with their personal

message, the outreach to friends, family,

neighbors and business associates

is far-reaching; easily touching thousands

of people who want to give to

the fight against cancer.

Celebration and Inspiration!

Calling all cancer survivors and

caregivers! Please join Relay for Life

for the first laps in your honor; a testimony

to the fact that so many people

today are surviving cancer. It’s an opportunity

to be honored, applauded

and connect with a community of

survivors and caregivers. You’ll enjoy

a shift in consciousness and calm reflection.

The candle lit bags that line

the track side-by-side to symbolize

someone special who we have lost or

a brave survivor that has been touched

by cancer. By purchasing a Luminaria,

you can honor a memory and celebrate

Summer fun continues in Templeton and

long-time county resident heads Chamber

By Heather Young

In addition to numerous

events and celebrations happening

in Templeton this

summer, it marks the end

of Sarah Maggelet’s first six

months as executive director

of the Templeton Chamber of

Commerce. She was hired in

mid-November as the organization’s

second paid staff member, replacing

Berdette Robison.

Until a year and a half ago, Maggelet

said, the chamber was run by

all volunteers. Because the chamber

was run by volunteers, who were also

small business owners themselves, the

chamber mostly put on events. Now,

the chamber, under Maggelet’s direction,

is able to offer more programs.

Maggelet, a native of the county,

and her husband moved to

Templeton in 2005. Her involvement

started then. Their business, Applynx.

com, built the chamber’s website, and

Maggelet has been a volunteer in a

multitude of facets.

“This is my home, so I’m really

passionate about helping the small

Sarah Maggelet

businesses,” Maggelet said.

Maggelet grew up in

Morro Bay and San Luis

Obispo and graduated from

Mission Preparatory in SLO.

She earned her Master’s in

Business Administration from

Cal Poly in 2001.

Because the job at the

chamber is only part-time,

Maggelet continues to work with her

husband.

Maggelet is looking to grow the

chamber’s membership from its current

size of 270 so that it includes the

majority of Templeton businesses.

She sees holes in the membership,

such as there are few, if any, medical

or tourism industry members. Additionally,

she has started programs

such as an attorney being available

for an hour to answer questions from

members and a social media program

that will be held on Friday, August 22

from noon to 1 p.m.

Pinot & Paella Festival

While Maggelet will be adding

an education and outreach elements

to the chamber, events will go on.

ROUND TOWN

PERSPECTIVE from page 38

At the heart of the water district

debate has been whether the

ninety or so landowners who control

nearly two-thirds of the Paso Robles

groundwater basin area, should be

able to outmuscle far more numerous

smaller residential property owners,

many of whom have had wells run

dry during the extended drought.

One-person, one-vote advocates wag

their fingers at Paso Robles Agricultural

Alliance for Groundwater Solutions,

(PRAAGS), a group made

up of many large vineyards and vintners,

although they stop short of accusing

them of improper influence.

Intertie: As the drought worsens,

county public works engineers

are rushing to complete the

blueprints for an extension of the

Nacimiento pipeline that would

provide emergency water to Morro

Bay and government facilities along

Highway 1.

The roughly $3 million intertie

project would bring surplus water

from Lake Nacimiento to Santa

Margarita lake, with a short extension

to feed Chorro Reservoir outside

the California Men’s Colony

near San Luis Obispo, eventually

linking all to the state water project.

The whole notion that such a

project would create a more reliable

water delivery system, twists on the

fine thread of an assumption there

would actually be surplus water in

Lake Nacimiento. The lake currently

sits at less than 24% of capacity, and

continues to decline.

Okay, let’s see: Monterey

County has dibs on some Lake

Nacimiento water, so will the proposed

Paso Robles Basin Water

district, the city of Paso Robles, rural

growers and residential customers.

Now San Luis Obispo wants a

slice of the shrinking pie. Everyone,

it seems, has been promised

Nacimiento water. What could possibly

go wrong?

Bioblech: Actually biosolids, a

term for the heavier...erm...constituents

of sewage, was again discussed

by San Luis Obispo County supervisors.

We touched on this earlier, then

carefully washed our hands, because

wastewater agencies want permission

to spread their leftovers on ag land.

In theory, this shouldn’t be a big do

– deal, excuse me – as any gardener

who maintains a composting bin

knows; plants love biosolids because

they produce luscious, happy crops.

So why the big fuss? County board

members are concerned about too

much of a good thing, if that’s the

right descriptor. The 2004 interim

ordinance they renewed is probably

the longest running interim ordinance

on record, stalled from permanence

by an expensive environmental

impact report no one wants

to pay for.

There are various ways to take

care of this unwanted byproduct

of wastewater treatment, including

cogeneration, which is a polite word

for burning. Neither that idea, nor

the stench it would produce are going

to fly with county residents, so

the interim ordinance allows limited

application of 1,500 cubic yards

CHAMBER from page 42

Department from 7 to 9:30 a.m.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for

children 10 and younger, and may be

purchased in advance at the Templeton

Community Services District office,

Templeton Farmers’ Market, or from

any Templeton firefighter, or at the

door on July 4. Only 800 breakfasts

will be sold, so purchasing tickets early

is recommended.

The parade, sponsored by the

Templeton Kiwanis Club, begins

at 10 a.m. and will run along Main

Street, ending at the Templeton

in a 12-month period.

If you plan to add more than

five cubic yards, you’ll need to tell

the health department, presumably

so they can measure and test

it; trust me, you don’t want to draw

the short straw for that job. Garden

store manure bags are exempt from

the ordinance, even though they

contain essentially the same sort of

biosolids.

The next time a telemarketer calls

and asks for Bruce, I’m going to say,

“Sorry, this is Herb Schmerdtz and

unfortunately, Bruce is deceased.

He died when a telemarketing call

triggered a heart attack.”

Hoofbeat

By Dorothy

Rogers

Celebrating the completion of 33 years

of Hoofbeat this month, we prepare for

the coming years together.

It’s time for Kid’s Camps and get-aways.

Whether half days, full days or over

night for several days, each has a specialty

set in a family atmosphere. The experience

and life skills can impart confidence and

create memories to share for decades.

Run for the Roses

“California Chrome” is the first

California bred, raised and trained

Thoroughbred since 1962 to win the

prestigious Kentucky Derby. It was a

happy birthday for Steve Coburn and

his wife, Carolyn of Coalinga and

partner Perry Martin of Nevada as

jockey Victor Espinosa and “California

Chrome” crossed the finish line.

The team showed the “old guard” that

non-royalty can live a dream. They

bested 18 horses in two minutes and

three seconds by a decisive one and

three quarters lengths as seen on the

new giant screen at the track.

The dam of “California Chrome”

was bought for $8,000 and the stud

fee was only $2,500. Quite a good investment!

Once he was tested in a few

races, the owners were offered $6.5

million for 51 per

cent ownership. They

turned it down to follow

their dream and

headed east to blue

grass country. The

“mom and pop” enterprise

includes the

oldest winning trainer

Art Sherman (77)

with his first trained

horse in Louisville.

By the time this issue

is out, the Preakness

will have been

decided and the Belmont

will be ready for

the young horses to

vie for that title.

For those who really

love racing, I wish that mature

horses would be raced, rather than

youngsters. More than 160 years ago,

the “Black Swan,” an Australian Thoroughbred

mare, was imported. It was a

tremendous undertaking for the time.

A small jockey and lightweight racing

saddle came with her. Sepulveda’s unbeaten

California horse from Hispanic

bloodlines, “Sarco” was saddled with

a full, heavy stock saddle and grown

rider. When the “Black Swan” crossed

the finish line to win fortunes, cattle

and horse herds and ranchos, lives and

the equine industry forever changed.

look at a Thoroughbred, the great race

48 Paso Robles Magazine, June 2014


By Dorothy Rogers

It isn’t easy to find a way to live your

dream, but the Lord makes a way where there

appears to be none. His life’s journey has taken

many turns from a boy raised on a family

farm in Washington training dogs and horses

wanting only to be a cowboy to finding fun in

each day in Paso Robles.

Working together with his lovely wife Elissa,

the couple have established a home ranch here.

New aspects to the cowboy’s life include serving

others through sharing music for retirement

home residents plus Elissa’s experienced

and untiring work with Hospice.

As a contract cowboy, Gary Williams is confident

and experienced while remaining humble.

He takes pride in his working McNab dogs,

Quarter Horses and his ability to get a job done

– especially when hired to gather and transport

cattle in challenging terrain like the steep slopes

and ridges of the Santa Lucia coastal range.

McNabs are not found just anywhere. Gary

has been breeding them since the early 1970‘s.

He wanted an athletic, tough dog with tight

feet (without the web to hold foxtails and burrs),

enough “bite” necessary to control wild cattle

at the head or the heels and with short, slick

hair able to tolerate our Central Coast climate.

Gary sought out McNabs in both black

and red that meet his working crew needs.

In Gary Williams’ eyes,

‘Every day is an adventure’

Happy 125th Anniversary Paso

- from Doc and his gang

Contract cowboy Gary Williams and his canine crew

prior to heading out to gather the coastal range.

His McNab breeding program has become

much sought after. The dogs are not used to

drive the cattle. Gary employs the dogs to get

ahead of the cattle and hold them until he

gives direction.

One might think a pack of working dogs

would not function in a home, but the Williams’

dogs each knows his place and are friendly to

dog folks. Purebred puppies are available periodically.

He sells dogs started on cattle or fully

trained and stands both red and black males

to outside females. Gary also fills a need with

obedience training for those who have a variety

of dogs in need of a basic education to become

good citizens and knowledgeable owners.

Golden

Collar

Teresa Coffey

Owner

His golden Palomino, “Nugget,” is substantial

with bone, feet, withers and manners. Gary

has trained and re-educated many horses and

outside horses over the years. Often that also

requires training the owners for success, too.

The skills Gary has developed during his

time as a cowboy, a roper, a mounted Deputy

Sheriff, a ranch manager, father, foster parent,

AI technician, running his own cattle and as

an outfitter all have prepared him as an organized

steward and a thoughtful teacher. He

finally sat down long enough to record short

stories, lessons and observations compiled to

share with others. The stories are evidence of

the real deal, but give one pause to reflect or

grin. This book becomes a testimony to those

who love what they do and won’t give up.

Gary will tell you that the Lord has rescued him

more than once. He lives as a blessed person.

Visit with Gary and get your copy of Lessons

From the Range autographed. Perhaps pick

up one for a graduate or for Father’s Day.

Don’t miss the book signing June 14 at the Pioneer

Museum on Riverside from 2 to 4 p.m.

Books are in stock at Farm Supply, Templeton

Feed, Bucket ‘O Books, White Horse Tack and

Veterinary Supply and the Pioneer Museum.

As Gary and Elissa follow the future trail set

before them, they experience new adventures

everyday with a smile.

BUSINESS

SMITH MOTORGROUP opens in Paso Robles

By Bob Chute

Hmmm, this is NOT your typical

dealership. Is this a car dealer,

a used car lot, a candy store or a

toy store for adults?

Eye candy to be sure. Ian

Smith, of SMITH MOTOR-

GROUP, offers an incredible collection

of new and used cars in a

wide price range from sedans and

convertibles, to sports cars and

SUVs, both foreign

and domestic, as well

as exotic supercars.

Seriously, Paso

Robles has not seen

anything like this

before.

The new store is

family owned and

operated, overseen by

father and son, Brent

and Ian Smith, and managed

by Ian’s lifelong friend, Casey

Guenther. The Smiths recently

opened their newest location at

201 Spring Street in downtown

Paso Robles, at the corner of 2nd

and Spring in Paso Robles and

are planning a Grand Opening

on Father’s Day (appropriate!)

Weekend, June 14 and 15.

You simply must stop by.

In addition to their fantastic

selection of quality preowned vehicles,

Smith offers a collection

BUSINESS

Local retailer unveils new name, look as it celebrates 60 years

Idler’s has thrived when

most family-owned businesses

struggle. After 16 presidential

terms, close to as many

periods of economic struggle, increased competition

from big-box and e-commerce retailers

and shifting demographics, Idler’s celebrates its

60th anniversary as a top competitor on the

Central Coast and has rebranded as Idler’s Home.

Current Idler’s patriarch, Don Idler, credits the

company’s resilience and longevity to a strong

family culture, great service and low prices.

Started in 1954 by W.C. “Bud” Idler, Don’s dad,

the company is still a family affair, involving son

Bryan, daughter Jennifer, Jennifer’s husband Matt

Farrell and lifelong friend Keith Rodgers.

Looking ahead, the company now positions

itself for future growth with a new brand: Idler’s

Home – more of what you want for your home.

Idler’s Home has expanded its traditionally appliance-focused

showrooms to include three

additional departments: a sleep center with top

mattress brands, a full cabinetry and kitchen

design center and an outdoor living department

featuring spas and barbeques.

Shawn Smith, Idler’s store manager and buyer,

said, “Don and his family care about each employee.

We feel like part of the family. And we’re trained

Local residents continue to

invest in Downtown Paso

Local developers Brett Van Steenwyk and Debbie

Lorenz, owners of the Acorn Clock Tower

Building and other downtown properties, have submitted

plans to the city of Paso Robles as the Pine

Street Promenade LLC for a vibrant master- planned

public square with artisian marketplace, boutique

hotel, offices, retail and entertainment components

adjacent to the city’s historic town square park.

As residents committed to the city of Paso

Robles, Van Steenwyk and Lorenz saw an opportunity

in developing the former Hayward Lumber Yard

into a city landmark that will provide a commercial

and pedestrian connection between the AMTRAK

station with its adjacent retail and entertainment venues,

and the central business district surrounding the

downtown park area of Paso Robles.

mentioned that many of Idler’s

employees stay for an average of

ten years or longer, making the

environment even more family-like.

That commitment to people drives Idler’s commitment

to low prices.

“With our national buying group, BrandSource,

we can be ultra-competitive with big-box stores

like Home Depot and Sears,” Bryan Idler said.

“If they do have a better price, we will match it.

It’s not just a policy; it’s a philosophy.”

“The rebranding better represents what the

company has become,” said Don, “but Idler’s

After a chance meeting with Casey Biggs (Paso

class performing arts center, Van Steenwyk and Lorenz

became excited by the concept of including such a

center as a potential part of the project.

They directed the project’s civil engineer Mike

Orthopedic Specialty

Associates

Serving the needs of their patients

along the Central Coast for

more than 20 years, Dr. Kowall and

Dr. Mooney would like to extend

deep gratitude and appreciation to

all of their patients and referring

doctors for putting trust and confidence

in their abilities and their

practice at Orthopedic Specialty

Associates.

“We just can’t thank the community

enough for the support we

have received over the years,” Dr.

Kowall says. “We are

truly grateful.”

The doctors met while

completing their Sports

Medicine Fellowship,

focusing on knee and

shoulder surgery, at The

Orthopedic Specialty

Hospital. Both are California natives

– Dr. Kowall attended medical

school at Northwestern University

while Dr. Mooney attended medical

They are committed to remaining

served as Chief of Staff at Twin

Organic Farms Juice Bar

& Bless Your Heart

Specialty Baking

When talking with local business

owners Steve Dagnall and Rose Hawthorne,

one can’t help but think that

their businesses – Organic Farms

Juice Bar and Bless Your Heart Specialty

Baking – are located side-byside

for a reason. Both have stories of

survival, have overcome health challenges,

and love to share their healthy

lifestyle and food with others.

Rose is well-known in the local community

for her gluten-free, naturallysweetened

and low glycemic Bless

Your Heart baked goods; most of her

products are vegan or dairy-free. Her

passion for creating recipes that not

only taste good, but are also healthy,

stems from her own diagnosis of adult

diabetes. Along with her daughter Olivia

and granddaughter Grace, she can be

found in the kitchen mixing and baking

delicious and healthy foods such as

breads, crackers, energy bars, granola,

cupcakes, cookies and muffins for legions

of loyal customers.

Dr. Carmelo Plateroti and Dr.

Aracely Plateroti, owners of The Plateroti

Center in Atascadero, had long

desired to open up a juice bar. They

met Steve Dagnall when he needed

some medical advice during his recovery

from malignant melanoma; that led

to some cleansing, detox, and juicing.

With a background in restaurant and

food service, Steve and the Platerotis

“What we do is most gratifying

when somebody comes in and says

that their life has been changed because

of the fact that they are able to

walk better or throw a ball around

with their kids,” Dr. Kowall says.

Both doctors rave about their office

staff – they receive positive

feedback daily from

their patients and

other medical professionals.

“We have a trusted

and valued staff,”

Dr. Mooney says,

adding, “they are dependable,

precise and they treat our

patients very well.”

Avid exercise enthusiasts, they

have completed several marathons,

triathlons and bicycle races. Most

recently, Dr. Mooney completed

the Lava Man triathlon in Hawaii

and Dr. Kowall completed the

Wild Flower triathlon locally. They

also have been team physicians

since 1997 at Paso Robles and

Dr. Kowall and Dr. Mooney

decided to embark on their new business

adventure about a year ago.

“Steve came by one day to talk to

us about what he was going to be doing

and that he may open in San Luis.

I said, ‘what about this place right here

with me?’ Well, we both decided it was

perfect,” Rose says.

Now, as co-founders and owners

of the Organic Farms Juice Bar, Steve

and the Platerotis have struck a chord

with local health-conscious individuals.

They take pride in offering nutritional

Acai Bowls with toppings such as hemp

seeds, bee pollen, goji berries and

to talk about the Renovation and

help us move forward. Work began

Local Scouts keep the Flags Flying!

By Millie Drum

When the city needed help to prepare

the new city flag for the 125th anniversary

celebration, local scouts teamed

up again to show their patriotism and

honor the spirit of being a scout. Joseph

Fairchild dedicated his Eagle project to

the task of decorating the downtown,

coordinated the color guard for the

125th celebration in the park and led the

Pledge of Allegiance.

Over the years, downtown construction

projects have caused the removal of many

flag holders. Daniel Callahan dedicated

his Eagle project to work

with the city on the design

and placement of new flag

holder, obtained the funding,

and with the help of

his troop mates installed the

flag holders.

If you’ve wondered how

the American flags appear

in our community every

holiday, the Boy Scouts

from Troop 60 lead the

Flags deposited in just 3

days at the corner of 13th

and Paso Robles Street.

effort to place flags on the city streets and

the Niblick Bridge. With assistance from

the Brownies and Daisies from Girl Scout

troops and the Civil Air Patrol Cadets,

flags are also placed on the graves of veteran’s

on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day.

Stars for the USS Ronald

Reagan

With David Kudija’s faithful dedication

to honor our soldier’s service to our

country, his project, Stars for our Troops,

is growing since the metal depository

was installed on the corner of 13th and

Paso Robles Street, thanks to the local

Elks Lodge. The response

has been incredible; allowing

David to further his commitment

to salvage the stars from

discarded American flags, then

honoring them with a proper

retirement. Earlier this year,

David delivered 5,000 stars in

one shipment for the entire

crew of the aircraft carrier USS

Ronald Reagan. Contact David

at starsforourtroops@gmail.com.

Above: Boy Scouts Thomas

Sclimenti and Tom von Dohlen

also put flags on the graves of

veterans for Memorial Day and

Veterans Day.

the holders to the workforce.

Dale Zeulner - Proud to be an American!

Washington D.C. to celebrate his 89th

birthday. Dale received his American flag

and certificate in the mail which came as

quite a pleasant surprise. The honor that

is coordinated by Congressman Kevin

McCarthy couldn’t have come at a better

time! Dale’s had some health challenges,

so the things he cherishes most are carrying

him through; his faith, family, friends,

community and the love for his country.

Dale is a true American; symbolizing the

strength, unity and inspiration that keeps

him spry and optimistic in his 89th year!

As I’ve learned about his life through

my writing, we have a special bond...Dale
