“If all the Coca-Cola ever produced

Rocky Bleier: The Chuck Noll
[Ed. Note, the following is an excerpt
from a story in Sports Illustrated, June
16, 2014. Chuck Noll passed away June
13, 2014. He was the former coach of
the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1969 to
1991 with four Super Bowl wins and
was elected to the Pro Football Hall
of Fame in 1993. Rocky Bleier was a
halfback who played for the Steelers
under Noll from 1971 to 1980.]
Chuck loved teaching moments,
but he wasn’t an orator or a motivator.
Chuck would say, “It’s not my job
to hold your hand. It’s my job to take
motivated people and show them how
to become better.”
I recall a week in 1978, after we had
lost one game and snuck by in the next.
Things just weren’t clicking. By midweek
we needed a jolt from Chuck – a
boot up the **. So he pulled us together
after practice and said: “Let me tell
you a story about two monks who are
on a journey. Some time during their
journey they stop at a clearing, and in
the clearing is a stream, and they stop
at the stream. On the one side of the
stream is a fair maiden trying to cross.
And the first monk, without any hesitation,
crosses that stream, picks up the
fair maiden and carries her across and
sets her down. The two monks carry on
in silence. Sometime later on their
journey they stop at another clearing.
The second monk says to the first, ‘You
picked up that maiden. Do you know
it’s against our beliefs and our religion
to come in contact and touch a person
of the opposite sex?’ The first says,
‘I set her down back there, but you
carried her all the way here.’ ... I’ll see
you guys tomorrow at 10 a.m.”
We broke out of the huddle and
walked back to the locker room and
guys were like, “What the heck did
he just say?” Eventually I figured it
out: Our failures are back there. We

sound and mature landscaping!
GREAT NEWS!! Homes on acreage East of Paso are selling! Three homes that I listed
sold last month and another one is pending. They went quickly because they were clean
and well priced. I have additional buyers who missed out on those opportunities who are
looking for an acre or more in the country. Want to sell? Give me a jingle!
1. First time home buyers want to buy a home under $400,00 on the East side of
Paso Robles in town.
2. Our ranch in Redmond is in escrow and we are moving to the Paso Robles area! My
wife has three horses. We are looking for a nice ranch home on 4+ acres for under a
Million dollars. We would prefer a property with a barn and/or shop, maybe a pool, and
ideally access to trail riding. If your property has some of these amenities, please call
Cheri at 805.610.7010

Cheri know. Privacy a plus. Gated communities are fine.

DON'T build in wiggle room. Offers come
in at close to asking in this market.
3. Get a home inspection done UP FRONT.
Get the skeletons out of your closet before

have problems later.

to pay buyers closing costs.
5. Wage war online. Hire a professional photographer.
Upload phenomenal pictures so
your home has the curb appeal it deserves.
6. Staging is important! I offer 6 hours of

making my clients homes come shining
through to SOLD! Call for your appt. today.

EDUCATION & YOUTH
By Judy Bedell
Here is the top ten list of
ways to win the homework
battle and help your child do
well in school.
1. Schedule homework
time at the same time every
day or night and make it a
part of your family routine.
If your child has after school
care, see if arrangements can
be made to have the homework
completed before pick-up time.
2. Provide a table or desk area for your child
to use as a homework area. The kitchen table
3. Eliminate distractions. That means mom
and dad turn off the TV during homework
time too. This is the single most difficult and
important strategy for improving homework
4. Use a kitchen timer to monitor homework
time. Twenty minutes is plenty for kindergarten
and first grade. Second and third
graders should spend thirty minutes a night
and fourth and fifth graders will need forty-five
minutes per night. If your child finishes
homework before the timer rings, have
them read. Reading is one of the best ways to
improve vocabulary and spelling skills.
5. Allow your child to stand or kneel in a
chair if this is the most comfortable and natural
position for him/her. Remember that
he/she has had to sit in a desk all day already.
Inflatable exercise balls make for a wonderful
seat so your child can wiggle but stay on task.
6. Be available to help your child, but do not
do the work for him/her. Contact your child’s
teacher if the work seems too difficult or the
child is taking more than the recommended
amount of time to finish assignments. Writing
a note to the teacher on the assignment lets
the teacher know that an attempt was made
and that your child needs additional help.
7. Get the names and phone numbers or
email addresses of at least three other families
in the class so you can call them if you have
questions on an assignment or concept that
is on the homework page. This is also a great
way to verify the often heard “But, I don’t
have any homework.”
8. If your child has difficulty focusing, try
playing Mozart on a CD or iPod with a set of
headphones. The soothing music often helps
children focus and provides enough background
noise for those that do not like complete silence.
9. Write notes to the teacher on the homework
sheet if you have questions or comments on
a particular portion. By signing the homework
each night, you will know it has been completed
and can see the progress your child is making.
One easy way to make sure you are checking the
work is to use a calendar to log that you have
seen the completed homework. Working parents
are often busy at night with housework and
personal tasks and can easily overlook checking
the homework unless a system is in place.
10. MAKE SURE
IS IN THE FOLDER
AND THAT IT GOES
TO SCHOOL WITH
YOUR CHILD EACH
MORNING. There is
nothing more frustrating
that spending time
helping your child with a tough assignment
and then finding it on his/her bedroom floor
the next morning after you have taken him/
her to school.
www.pasoschools.org – many teachers maintain
websites which list homework assignments
and/or resources for students and parents.
www.etcportal.org – This is the San Luis
Obispo County Office of Education web-site
and if offers parent resources as well as links to
sites for homework help and research. Most
students in grades 4 – 12 have a log-in that
works from home.
www.edhelper.com - An on-line program
that offers worksheets (and answer keys) for
all grades and subject areas.
www.algebra.com – great site for parents
and students with sample problems and solutions,
lesson videos and on-line homework
You Tube – Need help with 4th and 5th
grade math? Believe it or not, this popular
video site has short clips of teachers doing
lessons for you. Search the type of problem
you need help with then choose from a menu
of possible mini lessons.

EDUCATION & YOUTH
By Chuck Desmond
The El Paso de Robles’ School System has a
great supply of caring and dedicated personnel.
Some are in the forefront and are more publicly
visible. Others are just as dedicated but unfortunately,
rarely do we hear about them. These are the
folks who get up every day and go about making
the total education experience just a little bit better
because they genuinely care.
This is the story about one of them.
Amy Kaneko-Stoneburner is her name. She is
as attached to one of the schools as if her name was
above the front door. To the children at Bauer-Speck
Elementary, she is simply known as Miss Amy. Amy
is first-generation American of Japanese descent. She
was born in San Francisco, grew up there and graduated
from high school just a few blocks away from
After graduation, she entered the dental profession
in a variety of assistant positions. Following
eight years of that, Amy took a position at a safety
glasses company and that’s where she met her future
husband who was a customer and just happened to
live in Paso Robles. They married and by 2000, Amy
was grappling with a substantially slower lifestyle, a
much smaller infrastructure and lots of open space.
Our notorious summer heat was new too – remember,
it can be quite cold in San Francisco in the summer!
She also needed a driver’s license for the first
time (no need of one in SF with all the mass transit)
and was raising two children.
Amy was constantly in and out of the Bauer-Speck
campus with her children. It didn’t take
long for school personnel to notice the 4’10” tall
lady with the wildly outgoing personality and a
smile wide enough to light up the 17th and Vine
intersection. Amy was asked to become an “Art
Docent” which is adults trained to help children
learn art in the classroom. The goal is for the docents
to teach just enough so the students can
swell up with pride when they find their path and
out-perform the docents. The program had been
privately funded and seemed to fit Miss Amy just
fine. For seven years she did that. Then Amy went
“behind the scenes” for seven more years as a coordinator
and now is back in the classroom. That, my
dear readers is a 15 year commitment so far!!
For the folks at Bauer-Speck, that simply wasn’t
enough. “Hey, since you’re here all the time, how
about being a ‘yard duty’ person?” “Okay, I can
do that.” “Well, then why not be a crossing guard
too?” “Okay, I can do that as well.” She had one
day of training and started in 2001 and for seven
years, Amy was a crossing guard at Oak and 17th.
In 2007, she was re assigned to 17th and Vine. That
folks has been 14 years of service and, thank God,
without a single accident! You’ll see Amy and her
partner, Ms. Jan Carlos, starting at 7:15 as three
school buses unload plus guiding those who walk
to school. With her hair that is more than half as
long as her height and with her orange vest on, you
can hear (yes, easily hear!) Amy cheering on the kids
while she checks the intersection with better than
eagle-vision. Somewhere over 700 children attend
the two schools and most of them have to cross a
street. By 8 a.m. all of them are on campus and Amy
is off to the next portion of her school day.
All the food served on campus comes from the
Culinary Academy where Mr. Rod Blackner has
been the manager for many years. The food is delivered
and guess what – Amy is also a Kitchen
Food-Service Worker. Once again, she had said,
“Yes, of course I’ll do that too.” Nutrition (basically
a mid-morning snack with a fancy name) is served
up to all the students and right after that, it’s time to
get the lunches prepared.

Amy Kaneko-Stoneburner at her post.
Lunch is finished at 1:30 p.m. and then Amy
shifts gears again. She now heads to the playground
first at Speck and then across the street to
Bauer. Miss Amy is on yard duty where she keeps
a watchful eye, not only on the children, but on
the perimeter to see if there is anyone who
shouldn’t be there. Safety, safety, safety.
It’s now 2:30 p.m. and school is over for the day.
Out they come – grade school pent-up energy is
ready to burst loose. But first, Amy has to get them
back onto their buses or across the intersections.
With her long hair flying and STOP sign raised
as high as she can reach at the end of a long day,
Amy still has enough ‘gas in her own tank’ to
wave to all the parents who call out her name and
toot the horn.
Amy’s philosophy is that a positive outlook is a
good thing. There are always plenty of opportunities
to “bring ya down” so Amy and her husband, Ralph,
go the extra mile yet again. They focus on the twenty-five
or so Special Education Children. Out of their
own pockets, they buy miniature pumpkins and decorations
at Halloween. Then at Christmas, they bring
in Styrofoam balls and more decorations for the kids
to make ornaments. Easter season brings plastic eggs
with plenty-o-stuff to fill them. Valentines Day is
cookie time. Pretty special, don’tcha think?
Amy has a new boss this year. Karen Grandoli
came from Flamson and is the new Principal at
Bauer-Speck. She probably has plenty on her plate
but I just bet that Miss Amy will step in wherever
she might be asked.
To Amy and all the other unsung heroes in the
school district – THANK YOU for what you do!

2014 California Mid State Fair Junior Livestock Auction
4H and FFA Showmen garner big numbers
By Judy Bedell
Once again San Luis Obispo County businesses,
ranchers and farmers and local community members
rallied to support the California Mid-State
Fair Junior Livestock Auction. After months of
work and a week at the Fair grooming, preparing
and showing their animals, 4H and FFA members
saw their efforts pay off at the auction block.
The 2014 Junior Livestock Auction and the
Replacement Heifer Sale brought in $2,107,910
up from the 2013 figure of $2,100,517.
“Again this year I feel very blessed to finish
with such solid numbers,” said CEO Vivian
Robertson, “It’s a reflection of our community,
filled with so many people who put in many,
many hours of hard work. Our top priority is to
provide a safe and fun environment; I feel that
was accomplished thanks to the tremendous support
of our volunteers and staff.”
If you were intrigued by all the livestock and
would like to participate in raising a pig or lamb,
chicken or steer, goat or rabbit for next year’s Fair,
now is the time to join 4H and FFA. High school
students should contact the Ag Department of
their school and make sure they are enrolled in at
least one agriculturally-related class to participate
in the Future Farmers of America Program.
If your children are younger, consider getting
them started with 4H. There are numerous clubs
located in the north county that can help you
get started. Children as young as five years old
can participate in the Primary Program and start
with rabbits or chickens. Then when they
turn nine they can move to larger animals.
Contact a local leader and they can help
you through the registration process.
The 2015 California Mid-State Fair
will run Wednesday, July 22 through
Sunday, August 2.

The online auction will feature
an array of popular items donated
by businesses from San Francisco to
San Diego! The public will have the
opportunity to place bids online and
compete for items with other Boys &
Girls Club supporters. You will also
have the option to purchase items at
a Win It Now (WIN) price and then
the desired auction item is immediately
yours! 100% of the proceeds
from the event and the auction will
stay with the Boys & Girls Club of
North San Luis Obispo County to
help pay for youth programs.
At the end of the online auction,
items that were not purchased at
a WIN price will then be featured

Each online bidder, not attending the
event, will also have the opportunity

The auction is a great way to support

the school year. Yet, in terms of real
dollars it costs $2,700 per child to
provide them with a year of programs
at the Club. They rely exclusively on

raised remains in our community. The

After careful and robust deliberations,
which included a rigorous
and inclusive selection process
involving school district staff and
members of the community, the
Board of Trustees has announced
the selection of Mr. Chris Williams
to lead the District as the next Superintendent
of Paso Robles Public Schools.
“We are very excited to have Mr. Williams
as our new Superintendent. He is
student centered and has solid leadership
experience,” said Board President
Katy Griffin. “We believe he will be a
great fit for our district and community.”
Williams comes to Paso Schools from
the Central Unified School District after
their parents and teachers of all of the
students. Great job!
The response this year was overwhelming!
The local chapter and
committee are hoping all schools will
participate as enthusiastically in the
fall programs American History and
Christopher Columbus contests.
All High Schools are invited to submit
a senior for the Good Citizen Award
and Scholarship. This is an excellent opportunity
for our children to shine in
their country’s heritage! Teachers, parents

EDUCATION & YOUTH
By Chuck Desmond
The Library has 850 more smiles
“Read to your children. Read with your
children. Teach your children to read and
by your own good example of reading, this
is one more way to open the world to our
youth. Read, Read, Read and then read
some more.” We’ve all heard these and a
hundred more like them but it’s not always
that simple is it? Thank the stars that there
are benefactors who, on their own volition,
step in to help. Let’s set the stage for one
such set of helpers.
The Masons, one of the many fine service
organizations in our area has, for 20
years, been raising funds and then donating
them to Cambria to assist with their reading
programs. Ms. Heather Stephenson, the
Children’s Services Librarian, used to work
in the Cambria schools and she understood
how much the Masons’ support meant. In January
of this year, Heather took her new position at
the Paso library. About the same time, the Masons
merged their Lodges of Cambria and El Paso de
Robles. See where this is going?
Yessir, on July 18th, the Thaddeus Sherman
Masonic Lodge # 196, with a bit of encouragement
from Heather, presented the results of their
decision to support Paso’s young readers with
a grant of $850 to the Paso Robles Museum
Foundation, which is the money raising arm of
our library system.
Gathered in the Children’s Story Room, were
Tom Irwin, the current Master at the Lodge,
Franz Wagner, the past Master and other Masons,
Ms. Sally Marinus, a Foundation Board member,
Karen Christiansen, Paso’s Library Manager and
of course, Heather Stephenson. Rounding out
the audience were City Councilman Steve Martin
and Mayor Duane Picanco along with several
Irwin stated, “One of the Masons’ missions is a
focus on supporting literacy. Across California, over
a million dollars is raised each year to advance literacy
and build parents’ involvement with
their children. A great and ideal goal but it
has to be done locally to support the ability
to purchase books and provide program assistance
that encourages reading. With the new
merger of the two local Lodges, this is a way
to also give back to the Paso Robles community.
Our hope is to keep young readers involved,
engaged and comfortable in visiting
their local library. Rewarding youth who read
through their summer vacation is a further
incentive. If successful, this will set a solid
reading trend for the rest of their lives.”
In specific, this $850 donation presented
to Ms. Marinus is being used for library
needs and to also sponsor The Masons’
Summer Reading Awards. Basically, youth
readers who complete the Fizz, Boom, Read
program at the library will be able to pick
a book of their choosing for the library’s
collection and have their name inside the front
jacket as a symbol of that accomplishment.
Heather and Karen were beaming from ear to
ear. This donation is a great shot in the arm. Paso’s
library is located at 1000 Spring St. and is open
Monday - Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday,
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If it’s been awhile, go on in. I
know you’ll be thrilled at this resource we have in
our home town. If you’d be interested in learning
about volunteering, call Suzanne Robitaille,
volunteer guru-ess at 237-3870.
A big round of thanks to the Masons.

The Paso Robles town square has watched buildings rise
and fall all its life. The latest project invigorated an old
veteran who has seen it all: the historic brick building on the
corner of 12th and Pine streets.
It rose in 1888, when Alexander Stowell bought three lots for
$2,000 and spent $7,000 on a two-story red-brick building to
rival the town’s first architectural wonder, the Adams Block just
up the street. Upstairs, it housed the Alexander Hotel on the
second floor. At street level, customers found an array of shops,
such as a restaurant, hardware store, barbershop, and the town’s
first refrigerated meat market in 1893.
SURVIVOR: On the corner of 12th and Pine, masons in 1888 laid
the foundation of the town’s newest development, the premier
Alexander Hotel. Those brick walls weathered economic crashes,
earthquakes, and major surgery, and still stand today.
Today, the former furniture store is home to multiple merchants
with separate storefronts, including Artisan restaurant,
Firefly Gallery, and the new General Store Paso Robles.
When the building went up in 1888, the proprietors of
El Paso de Robles had development plans that excited others.
Daniel Blackburn’s iconic clocktower at 12th and Park was
just a hole in the ground, stymied by brickmakers feverishly
baking one million new bricks ordered for Drury James’
centerpiece Hotel El Paso de Robles on Spring St. The mapped
streets steadily filled.
Alexander Monteith acquired the building in 1915, renamed
it the Merchantile, and his family members handled its operations
as a coop business for almost 100 years. With the upper
story removed in 1937, the Mercantile was a downtown icon,
boasting hardware, housewares, ready-to-wear, furniture,
confections, and an air-propelled system that transported
customers’ money and orders to the cashier and accountants.
The Fallen Another tourist gem debuted in 1888 right
across the park: this 32-room four-towered bathhouse at 10th
and Spring, enclosing the historic sulfur springs for the biggest
development project in town. The spa resort and bathhouse
went down in history, but the sulfur spring lives on.

Welcome to Paso Robles, where Nature unreliably
giveth (a whopping 42 inches in 1883) and taketh
away (maybe 4 inches in 1898). Pioneer farmers saw this
erratic behavior and decided: “This would be poor country
if it weren’t for next year.” Then they planted hardier crops.
Do you prefer feast or famine? In late January 1914, the
heavens dumped 12 inches of rain on our valley.
Overnight, the Salinas River wiped out the 13th-Street
bridge, the only east/west link we had. During the struggle
to re-connect via boat, horse, cables, and trolley car, the
Great World War erupted, dashing hopes of rebuilding
Lesson learned: Build stout bridges, conserve water, and
pray for rain.
What if the new neighbors specialize in crime?
It happened here 125 years ago near the Huer-Huero
River, to pioneer sheep ranchers Dwight and Mary Reynolds.
When they settled here in the 1870s and welcomed their
first child, Isabel, the national news tracked the
fiery finale of theJesse James - Younger Gang.
The Younger cousins showed up here in the late
1880s, on a ranch just down the road from the
Young, armed and restless, the Dalton brothers
would ride into infamy in Midwestern bank robberies
a few years later, but they left Isabel Reynolds
with sweet memories of the Dalton Gang.
Brother Bill Dalton came to the new city of
Paso Robles to try farming before ending his
days in the Wild Bunch. He testified at his own
train-robbery trial that he provided work to his
Oklahoma brothers Grat, Bob, and Emmett –
deputy U.S. marshals turned to thievery after a
When somebody robbed a Southern Pacific train in the
San Joaquin Valley in 1891, Bob and Emmett vamoosed
but Bill and Grat Dalton were arrested and tried. Newspapers
published the testimonies of Paso and SLO County residents.
Bill was acquitted. Grat was convicted but escaped from a moving
train, found Bob and Emmett, and hustled home to Oklahoma
to rob trains and meet Fate in 1892, on a Kansas street while
robbing two banks. Bill Dalton followed, joining the Wild Bunch
gang for a death by gunfight in a 1894 bank robbery.
Isabel told her granddaughter many years later, when they lived
together on the old Reynolds place, about the
Dalton boys who lived up the road, in the area
that is now Jardine Road. When the brothers
came to visit, she said, they passed right by the
Reynolds ranch, near present-day Highway 46
East and Airport Road.
They would cross the Huer-Huero
River in front of the house, Isabel said, pointing
out the crossing to her granddaughter.
When the five Reynolds children spied the
Dalton boys crossing the river, Isabel said, she
and her brothers ran out to greet them – and
the Dalton Gang handed out candy.

General Election set for November 4
By Bob Chute
The General Municipal Election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014.
Locally, we will decide four year terms for mayor and two city council seats.
Because Steve Martin is running unopposed for mayor, he will be our next
mayor. Martin was in the middle of his four year term as a city councilman and
the newly seated council will decide whether to hold a special election or appoint
a replacement to complete the two remaining years of his term.
Five candidates are competing for two available seats on the Council,
in alphabetical order: Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce Economic
Development Director Pam Avila, Planning Commissioner Steve Gregory,
incumbent Councilman John Hamon, Mayor Duane Picanco and
draftsman Jim Reed.
Councilman Ed Steinbeck is not seeking re-election.
First of all, let me express my heartfelt thank you to each candidate for taking
on the challenge of seeking election - an often thankless task in service
of our residents. Space limitations prevent us from including comments from
every candidate appearing on the ballot. This year we are only carrying
statements from those seeking seats on the Paso Robles City Council…as well
as a brief statement from outgoing Councilman Steinbeck.
The Paso Robles Magazine contacted each candidate and offered publicity
in our September issue with a desire to keep it simple...each candidate was asked
to submit a concise 400 word statement describing “why you feel you are qualified
for this position and why our citizens should vote for you.”
Councilmember Ed Steinbeck released the following
statement relating to the upcoming Council Election:
I am choosing not to run for re-election this year. I need
to spend more time on my real estate business, and the
Council position requires lots of time for reading, study,
contemplation, discussion with constituents and attendance
at meetings and events.
Paso Robles has many things to be proud of, especially how
the City has been able to keep financially stable during the great recession. This
was no small feat, and we still need to be careful with expenditures. But, many
needed public projects have been or are under construction including the
Waste Water Treatment Plant, the Water Treatment Plant and many road
segments. The City has begun to expend the sales tax dollars voted in by
residents, and there is a lot of satisfaction in seeing fresh new streets.
Many thanks to those who have supported me and Linda over the years. It is
truly appreciated. Many thanks to Linda for spending many evenings alone. My
wish for the City is for a Council that takes action always considering what is
in the best interest of the citizens. I encourage whatever future Council may be
elected to study hard, learn the process and listen to others.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Council and look forward to participating
until the election in November.
Steven W. Martin - Candidate for Mayor
Although Steven Martin is running unopposed and is selected
as our Mayor, we are running his statement for our
I am a 40-year resident of Paso Robles currently serving on
the Paso Robles City Council having been elected in 2012. I
also served on the City Council between 1987 and 1996, as
Mayor 1988-1990. My wife and I have raised our family in
Paso Robles and, in addition to my Council service, I also have been active in
many local organizations over the years including Kiwanis, Optimists, Rotary,
the American Cancer Society, The Link and the Symphony of the Vines. I
have been endorsed for the office of Mayor of the City of Paso Robles by local
citizens as well as elected and appointed representatives at the local and state
levels. I have the skills, experience and passion to serve effectively as Mayor.
I have also worked with Main Street and other organizations in neighboring
Atascadero. In 2007 I received that City’s Chamber award for Community
Volunteer of the Year. Opportunities to participate in two cities and at the
County level have given me unique perspectives on how communities can and
should work together.
If Paso Robles is to continue to be successful – a place where its citizens can
live, work and shop – we must aggressively manage our water supplies, actively
retain and recruit new industry to diversify our employment base and continue
to restore the city services sacrificed during the recent recession. We must also
continue to work for government accountability, improved public safety, and expanded
recreational and cultural opportunities.
As your Mayor I will listen, lead and communicate. I will listen to constituents’
input and work to represent their interests to the best of my ability. I will lead by
working with the Council, other government agencies, local organizations and
individuals to frame the goals and objectives of the community and concentrate
on accomplishing them. I will communicate with the community on behalf of
the Council to keep citizens informed on city issues, progress and challenges.
For more information I invite you to visit www.MartinForMayor.org.
You can also find me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.
I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of the City of
Paso Robles. I respectfully ask for your vote. Thank you.
CANDIDATES FOR PASO ROBLES CITY COUNCIL
Pam Avila - City Council Candidate
My name is Pam Avila and I want to represent you on the
Paso Robles City Council! Before I share my qualifications
with you, I’d like to share why I’m running for City Council.
Paso is a very special place – a pretty unique place. People
move here because they want to experience the specialness of
a small town, the sense of community they couldn’t get in the
midst of urban sprawl.
We want a great place to raise our families or settle into retirement. We want
to be able to earn a good living. We want the children of Paso to have the tools
that they’ll need as they become employees, entrepreneurs, parents and the future
leaders of this community.
I believe we are at a crossroads with great challenges ahead. Growth is inevitable.
The primary challenge will be to maintain or enhance our quality of life
while still growing. We need a better Paso, not just a bigger Paso.
“Better” doesn’t just happen by chance. To meet our challenges, we need Paso’s
leadership going forward to be visionary, to have and clearly communicate
a plan and be willing to make hard choices that have you and your family at the
heart of those choices. Most importantly, the leadership must be held accountable
for the results of that plan.
As the first Director of Economic Development for the Paso Chamber, I
work every week to make our business community stronger and more successful.
I don’t just talk the economic development talk, I am walking the
walk. I meet with business owners and executives to better understand their
needs and challenges. I know what’s working and what’s not working for
them. I bring together the resources and create programs that a new or growing
business needs for success.
But I know that Economic Development is only half of the equation that
leads to a better quality of life for you and everyone else in Paso Robles. Community
Development is equally important. And it requires long-term partnerships
and efforts within Paso. I’m actively engaged in those partnerships and efforts.
Why am I qualified? I bring keen business executive experience as well as
entrepreneur and small business owner experience to the position. I’m a proud
University of Michigan alumnus. Most of all, I’m a leader and doer and I’m engaged
in the community! Paso’s future is right in front of us. It is ours to define.
Steve Gregory - City Council Candidate
Paso Robles is a wonderful place to live and work. As a 34
year resident, I am motivated and committed to maintaining
the “Paso Robles lifestyle” we all enjoy. I am dedicated to
balancing our quality of life with the success of our local
businesses and new economic development. My children
were raised here. I have experienced our schools and all activities
that go along with family responsibilities. My business
is here, I’ve volunteered here, made lasting friendships here and I met
my lovely wife Dawn here. I am committed to maintain the “Paso Robles
lifestyle” and that is why I am running for City Council.
When my kids were in preschool, I volunteered in the organization of their
preschool and chaired various grammar school organizations. I worked in
the classrooms and I care about all of our children. I have volunteered with the
26 Paso Robles Magazine, September 2014
Recreation Advisory Committee, youth sports in baseball, basketball and soccer
and coached those teams. At the same time I volunteered with Rotary, Main
Street, Avila Sealife Center, Avila Business Association and other organizations.
Serving as a Planning Commissioner for 5 years, I have served as the Chairman
and currently Vice-Chairman. During my tenure on the Commission I
have been on the Development Review Committee. We review the architectural
and site plans of projects coming into the city weekly. Through our collaboration
on the Commission we have worked diligently to provide the advisory support
the City Council has needed. This leadership experience has provided me with
invaluable skills to be a capable and successful City Councilman.
As a businessman, I have been in the hospitality industry and in local restaurants.
I developed Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort in the Avila Beach area. I
operated Sycamore for more than 20 years while living in Paso Robles. When I
left this company we had over 180 employees and three resorts including Paso
Robles Hot Springs. Strong leadership and management were required in all
aspects of the successful operation of these companies.
I enjoy working with everyone in our community. I have the experience to prepare
for the City Council workload. I know how to involve the community, businesses,
and city staff in moving forward. I am not afraid to express what I feel is right. I vote
with my heart, yet I listen to all sides. I am exceedingly energetic and love to problemsolve.
I am accessible, I do my homework and I am a skilled and experienced leader.
I will work hard to make our town the best place for all of us to live in.

John R. Hamon Jr. - City Council Candidate
Occupation: Businessman / Incumbent Paso Robles City
It has been an honor and privilege to serve my fellow
Roblans as your City Councilman for the past eight years. I
remain strongly committed to getting our community back to
the pre-recession level of services and maintenance. For this
reason I will ask the citizens of Paso Robles for the opportunity to represent you
for another four year term.
I consider my 37 years of knowledge, a financially responsible small business
owner that understands the need to have a conservative approach to using precious
public tax dollars.
As we see the economic down of recent years begin to improve, my goal
continues to bring city services and our public assets that were either reduced
or turned off, back to an acceptable level of service and care.
Council leadership made the fiscally prudent decisions to decrease our
city budget and directed staff to “live within our means.” This has been very
difficult for every Roblan but it had to be done just as every family continues
to do with their own finances.
I am extremely proud of our citizens who supported Council’s leadership
that asked our citizens (and visitors) for an additional ½ cent sales tax which
funded our street upkeep.
This money has already begun working to turn our aging roads back to the level
where they should be maintained. It is for reasons like this show of public support
and ownership that I find myself willing to continue to serve Paso Robles.
As a businessman and past Chamber Board member, I realize a collaborative
relationship with our merchants is critical for a healthy city. Generated revenue
drives the many public services like our police, fire, library and recreational departments.
Roblans expect a safe place to live, work and play; I will continue to
uphold all decisions that keep us protected.
I am proud to be a fourth generation son of the central coast whose ancestry
goes back to the construction of the Cuesta Grade railroad tunnels. My personal
work ethic, volunteer spirit, coupled with a realistic common sense approach to
problem solving has mixed well with my fellow councilmember’s.
Through years of city council experience, I have expanded my knowledge and
history on numerous issues; serious involvement that a councilman must have to
make properly informed decisions. I ask for the honor of your vote of confidence
in allowing me to continue representing you.
Duane Picanco - City Council Candidate
I am proud to have served the people of Paso Robles
as their Mayor for many years! I have enjoyed being the
spokesman for all Roblans and conducting the City
Council meetings. Under my guidance, the Council
has reduced spending in our City in order to create a
positive cash flow! We have begun to restore the Police
Department and the much needed road and facility repairs!
However, after much discussion with my family, I have decided it is time
to have a new voice leading our great City forward! I believe that there are
many partially finished projects that still require the background knowledge
and experience that I posses. I would like to focus my next four years
in a new position as CITY COUNCILMAN for Paso Robles! This will
allow me the dedicated time to work on the completion of these projects
and assist in resolving the ground water basin issues in my position as the
City LAFCO representative. I also want to address the issues of maintenance,
restoration of services and parking.
I raised my children in Paso Robles! I actively volunteer in many organizations
including Lions Club, Youth Baseball, Youth Football, St. Rose Church,
and the County’s LAFCO Board. I always support co-operation between the
City and the Public Schools. I support the many city-wide events we offer by
volunteering my time for events such as cooking beans in the Park for Pioneer
Day for the last 44 consecutive years, and by volunteering and raising funds to
host the annual 4th of July Fireworks.
As the Mayor, I have been a member of the City Council for many years.
I wish to continue one final term of representing the City as a Councilman! I
am asking the People of Paso Robles for their generous continued support by
voting for Duane Picanco for City Council! I look forward to the continued
betterment of Paso Robles! Please reach out to me with your comments or
suggestions at any time by phone or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I represent
you! REAL experience gives REAL knowledge for REAL responsible decisions!
I am here to work with you!
This City is a great place to live and I hope you will support me with your
vote for DUANE PICANCO for CITY COUNCIL! Together, we will make
Paso Robles an even better place to live!!!
Jim Reed - City Council Candidate
I am running for Paso Robles City Council to change the
direction our City is heading.
Now that the campaign season is upon us, the incumbents
will use their typical campaign statements and platitudes
to convince us they have been doing a good job.
We will hear how fiscally responsible they are when, in
fact: hundreds of thousands of dollars were recently wasted
on 21st Street and on matching fund grants for unnecessary projects in our
city. Four times more than necessary was spent on the bathrooms at the
Downtown City Park.
They say they have cut staff to save money, but we are paying more than
$1,120,000 per year in executive salaries. Former city employees are being paid
off due to irresponsible policies and poor supervision. Our roads are finally getting
needed maintenance, but only after we are paying more in sales tax.
The incumbents are going to try to convince us how business-friendly
In fact, my customers constantly tell me of months wasted to get projects approved,
exorbitant fees and ridiculous red tape involved in trying to expand and
improve their businesses. City policies actually stand in the way of businesses
pursuing effective business plans.
The incumbents are going to tell us they listen to us.
However, citizens have asked for Centennial Pool to be open to provide
summer jobs for our youth, swimming lessons for our kids, and a wholesome
place for families to socialize.
Still, the pool is closed.
Citizens want the parks to be run responsibly so our children can have youth
sports programs, but the City requires private citizens to do the maintenance,
and then gouges parents with huge fees to use the parks - which they maintain!
The list just goes on and on!
Today, decisions being made on our behalf are directed by outside influences.
Citizens have been made invisible and irrelevant. Paso Robles is no longer
the family-friendly community with the quality of life that we desire. Our City
Council has lost the mentality that the citizens are the officials and the people
we elect are to work for us.
This needs to change. The values and principles of the citizens must be
I see the need for strong, principled leadership that will actually listen and
represent the views and desires of the citizens.
I ask for your vote.

to do with pickles.
It’s the fastest growing sport in the
country…is like tennis - but different.
Like racquetball - but different. Like
badminton - but different. Like pingpong
- but different. Uses a ball like a
wiffleball - but different. Uses a court
like tennis - but smaller (less running).
Uses a composite paddle.
New players: They’ll have you playing
in 10 minutes and laughing in 15.
Great fun and great exercise. Warning:
You could become addicted!

Results of the 2014 California Mid-State Fair
The California Mid-State Fair

year, with solid numbers
and increases in many areas. For
the fourth consecutive year, over
400,000 people attended the Fair,

to enjoy one of the largest fairs in the
“Again this year I feel very blessed to finish
with such solid numbers,” said Vivian Robertson,
CEO. “It’s a reflection of our community,
filled with so many people who put in many,
many hours of hard work. Our top priority is to
provide a safe and fun environment; I feel that
was accomplished thanks to the tremendous
support of our volunteers and staff.”
“We also tip our hat to the City of Paso
Robles who is celebrating their 125th anniversary,
and to the State Parks of California who
are celebrating their 150th anniversary. It was
an honor to collaborate and showcase these special
celebrations,” said Robertson.
A few of the many highlights from this year’s
California Mid-State Fair include:
• Templeton’s Taylor Mae Lindquist was
crowned Miss CMSF. The 18-year-old attends
Cal Poly and enjoys showing livestock,
making homemade cheese and
playing the flute. 1st runner-up was
Lauren Rodrigues of Paso Robles
and 2nd runner-up was Devin Corea
of Paso Robles.
• Cattlemen & Farmer’s Day was
another rousing success, with Dale
Evenson being named Agriculturalist of the
Year, Ann Cochrane named Cattlewoman of

5th Annual PR Rotary Harvest Marathon set for October 26
The Paso Robles Rotary Club and Paso
Robles High School Athletic Boosters
have announced the merger of the Athletic
Boosters annual Wine Vine Run and the
annual Paso Robles Rotary Harvest Marathon.
The Paso Robles Rotary has long
been committed to the development of
Paso Robles youth, and the Paso Robles
Harvest Marathon is no exception. This
year’s race will take place on Sunday, Oct.
26 at the beautiful Le Vigne Winery, located
in Paso Robles on California’s scenic
Central Coast. You can enjoy breathtaking
views of local vineyards at harvest time as
you run the marathon, half marathon or
All proceeds from the Paso Robles
Harvest Marathon will benefit the Paso
Robles High School Athletic Department.
Our student-athletes compete in
23 sports as a member of the PAC-7
Athletic League. Recent years have seen
significant reductions in funding to the
athletic department. They are currently
forced to maintain their programs with
community support through the PRHS
Athletic Boosters and local organizations
like Paso Robles Rotary. Without the help
of these committed organizations and
parent volunteers each year, the various
athletic programs would not be possible.
The Paso Robles Harvest Marathon and
other events throughout the year will
provide the funding necessary to equip,
coach and transport our student-athletes.
Harvest Marathon: $110 (before September
14, $120 after)
Harvest Half Marathon: $75 (before
September 14, $90 after)
Harvest 5K: $35 (before September
14, $40 after)

Best-kept Secret Revealed!
By Darrell Radford,
Templeton Historical Museum
The Templeton Museum has sometimes been
called the “best-kept secret” in the middle of
downtown Templeton. It is not our desire to
keep it that way, but its little white house, which
is the main part of the museum, sits back from
the street behind a white picket fence and is
slightly hidden by a large corrugated-tin building
next door. We quite often have local residents
walk into the museum and exclaim, “I
never knew this existed!”
This impression needs to change!
Plans for a museum began in 1981, but it
wasn’t until seven years later that the dream of
a museum started to become a reality. That’s
when long-time Templeton residents Al and
Carla Willhoit donated their downtown property
for a museum site. The next gift was the
house, built about 1920, which was donated by
the Templeton Presbyterian Church and moved
to its present location in 1994. Volunteers renovated
the house and made it handicap accessible.
On October 18, 1998, the house was officially
opened to the public.
The front room contains a typical dining room
table, a restored organ from the mid-1800s, a tabletop
display of early Templeton photographs,
and other local memorabilia. The kitchen,
equipped with period furnishings, includes a

Behind the house,
there is an original warehouse from the Southern
Pacific depot in Templeton. The building
was moved onto the property and renovated
through a very generous bequest from the Neil
Willhoit estate in 2004. This building provides a
location for the museum’s 1926 Model T Ford
touring car, a beautiful courting buggy, and
the Templeton Fire Department’s hand-pulled
chemical water cart, as well as other local historical
Although not currently open to visitors, next
door stands the big corrugated building, which
encloses an original blacksmith shop from the
early 1900s. The building was acquired last year
through a generous offer from Bob Tullock,
whose father operated his blacksmith business
there from 1950 until 1996.
At the present time the building is being
used to restore an early Templeton school bus,
a 1933-model Ford, which was purchased new
in 1932. It served for many years as a school
bus, and then it was stripped down and used as

a truck, after which it disappeared.
It was eventually relocated in a field in a dilapidated
condition. It is being restored by a small
group of enthusiasts. If you are interested in
helping on the project, please leave a message at
the museum (805) 434-0807.
Between the house and the former blacksmith
shop, a brick Wall of Honor has been
built to honor those to whom Templeton was
an important part of their life. Both newcomers
and long-time residents may be honored by purchasing
a brick for the wall.
The museum always welcomes new members
(only $15 annually for individuals or $10, if retired),
volunteers to serve as docents (3 hours
per month), and other jobs, such as gardening,
helping with displays, cataloging, etc.
The museum, located at 309 S. Main Street in
downtown Templeton, is open Friday, Saturday
and Sunday from 1 until 4 p.m. Admission is free.
Become involved and help preserve Templeton’s
history. Let’s spread the word so the Museum is
no longer the “best-kept secret” in Templeton.

1941 was a year of significant
changes in San Miguel. World War
II was raging. Camp Roberts had just
been built and was fully active. The
town was crowded with people; the
population had swelled with workers
and their families and then was supplemented
with the military and their
families. This influx brought with it a
lot of business and entrepreneurs envisioning
That year, three major projects
were planned that would change the
look of the town. A park established
in 1890 by the San Miguel Women’s’
Club on the east side of Mission
Street between 14th Street and the
railroad station was razed to make
way for a modern ‘drive-in’ market
and business development. Fencing
was removed and a gazebo bandstand
that had been the scene of many concerts
given by San Miguel bands was
torn down and burned. A tall flagpole,
hand-carved by Howard Negley
out of a large tree from the Lynch
Ranch out in Bee Rock was removed
to a new location.
Meanwhile, two enterprising gentlemen
purchased a Dutch windmill
which had served as a restaurant at
the 1939 World’s Fair and Golden
Gate Exposition on Treasure Island
in San Francisco. They had the
building carefully dismantled with
each piece numbered and shipped
to San Miguel in two railroad cars.
It was reconstructed on the east side
of Mission Street near 11th Street
– approximately where the Community
Services District and Fire
Department now stand. According
to plans announced by project financiers
Wm. Woodfield Jr. & Associates
of San Francisco, the large windmill
was intended to be the first building
in a “block-long recreation center.”
It would be a dance hall and soft
drink, malted milk bar with adjoining
buildings added to house a roller rink,
other foods and amusements.
During this time with the town so
crowded a need had arisen for a local
facility to handle miscreants. To this
end, the county constructed a ‘Town
Hall’ with a small separate jail behind
it at the top of the hill on 13th Street,
across from the Hoffmann house. The
buildings were to be used by justices,
Military Police, as a library and a
place to hold meetings. Dedication
Day in August of that year was a
big holiday for the whole town with
business closing from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
for the event. Some 150 persons attended,
including officials from the
county, Camp Roberts and a large
crowd of townspeople. The old flagpole
salvaged from the downtown
park stood tall next to the new building.
R.W. ‘Bob’ Mann, president of
the Merchants Association, was in
charge of the ceremonies. A new
flag donated by Mrs. J.W. Jones was
presented to the Association by Mrs.
Martha Sopor from the 6th District
Veterans for Foreign Wars Auxiliary
#2814 and accepted by Howard
Negley who related its history.
County officials cautioned that
these buildings were built due to
‘urgent need’ and
the county budget
would not suffice for new constructions
in other parts of the county.
As the year wound to an end, the
planned drive-in market on the park
site and the recreation center around
the windmill were never built. For a
time, the windmill was used as a café
and at some point it was an express
office. In succeeding years it was used
for storage and a garage.
Finally, abandoned, neglected and
dilapidated, it was destroyed by an arson
fire on December 15, 1978. Camp
Roberts was reactivated for training
troops during the Korean War but
afterwards the justice court was closed
and the library expanded to fill the
entire space. Today the San Miguel
Library is as busy as ever but alas, the
historic wooden flagpole is gone.

Back On-board: We’ve told
you here about how amiable the water
bill process has been, that both
small property owners and larger
winegrowers hammered out a water
district formation bill that would

surrounding areas in a managed water
district that can plan for future
needs, including droughts.
But then the bill put on weight
and area supervisor Frank Mecham
Mecham pulled his support of
Katcho Achadjian’s AB 2453 after
changes and compromises added along
the legislative process seemed to build
in the kind of labyrinthine complications
that only the IRS could love.

PERSPECTIVE from page 45
lature that local support for a water
district was far from a slam dunk.
Lawmakers, being the politicians they
are, are reluctant to vote for stuff the
residents in their districts don’t like...
although that principal doesn’t seem
to work at the federal level.
At issue, continues to be voting
power, how large property owners
and small homeowners divvy up the
water board’s voting powers.
Achadjian stepped in to make the
necessary tweaks, including deleting
the useless DNA as AB 2435 wended
its way through Sacramento’s arcana,
and so, on August 5th, Mecham sent
a letter to the board saying he was
now convinced the water board legislation
leadership and voting process
It should be pointed out some of the
other folks who backed out of the bill,
included Pro Water Equity, a group
whose support was seen as critical to
the success of the legislation, are now
back on, as is a group of agricultural
interests called PRAAGS.
The rest of the board of supervisors
had until August 13 to throw their
support, and by inference, the county’s
support for the water district bill. 10%
of local property owners need to sign
the petition to LAFCO, the local
area formation commission, but that
requirement might get waived, under
the latest changes.
Inflated Value? Home prices
took a pretty hefty jump, and although
sales are flattening, assessed values
climbed nearly 6% over a year ago, so
For one thing, because nothing in
Sacramento is ever original, the bill
borrowed language from Fox Canyon’s
water district in Ventura. That
bill had extraneous language that
didn’t fit Paso Robles’ area.
It’s not that Mecham doesn’t want
to be on-board, the Paso Robles district
vice-chair has been vocal about
the need to create a water district, especially
in light of declining groundwater
levels and quality revealed in
a county study late last year. But in
a case of the leash walking the dog,
Mecham’s withdrawal of support
convinced the entire county board of
supervisors to withhold their support.
That sent signals to the state legislook
for commensurate tax hikes.
But why doesn’t 13 limit those
hikes? To answer that, you have to
backtrack to the recession, which
eviscerated home values. As market
prices dropped, so did assessments.
You might look at the latest hikes as,
Except that property assessments
hit a record high; $43.6 billion. That
means property owners will pony up
over $435 million in higher taxes, almost
two thirds of which goes to local
schools. But to be fair to the tax folks,
isn’t it possible that the new assessment
high could also be fueled by recent
construction? Probably. The only
way to really know is to read your next
tax bill. All I’m saying is, get ready to
trim your swag budget.

AR & Co. donates Promotional Services
for PRYAF Annual Fundraising Event
The Paso Robles Youth Arts
Foundation (PRYAF) sets its sights
on a sold-out event for their largest
fundraiser of the year, the 4th Annual
“Dining with the Arts” Dinner
& Auction Fundraiser on October
25, 2014, with the help of a marketing
grant from Paso Robles-based agency
AR & Co. PR & Marketing.
Of the numerous local charity organizations
that applied to AR & Co. PR
& Marketing’s Charity Event Promotion
Program (CEPP), PRYAF
won the 2014 grant program designed
to assist one North County San Luis
Obispo charity per year with the promotion
of an upcoming charitable
event, at no cost to the charity.
“Every year, we look forward to
receiving the CEPP proposals,” says
AR & Co. Founder Angela Robinson,
“but it is always very challenging
to choose the recipient – there are
so many worthy causes in the North
County that we would like to support.”
This year, Robinson says, the
Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation
stood out for its incredible, far-reaching
service of bringing art education
and artistic expression to young people
who might not otherwise have access
to those influences.
“We are very excited to help tell the
story of this important organization
and to invite the local community to
support their cause.”
AR & Co. will donate in-kind services
such as social media marketing,
publicity, direct mail and e-mail consulting,
media buying, sponsorship
outreach, flyer distribution, photography
and more to assist the PRYAF in
reaching its fundraising goals for their
October dinner and auction.
Hunter Ranch Golf Course and
Restaurant is looking to the future
as it celebrates its 20th anniversary
as a world-class golf destination.
Embracing golf ’s environmental
and physical evolution, the newly
renovated fairways will offer an
improved surface and provide a
drought tolerant solution for the
Paso Robles golf course.
Much like crop science and viticulture,
turf scientists continue to
develop resilient varieties that improve
turf grass quality. The Santa
Ana grass (just like crop varieties,
every grass has a unique name), a
Bermuda hybrid, is replacing the
original mix of common Bermuda
and cool season grass. The denser
Santa Ana grass offers greater water

“This change in turf improves
the player’s experience at Hunter
Ranch and adds to the charm
of this challenging course,” said
Hunter Ranch professional Mike
Bremer. “In addition, this surface
is more conducive to our unique
The overplanting project began
in early June and is now
complete. The innovative process
was quicker, more water efficient
and allowed the course to be
“With the help of the CEPP and
the generous assistance and talent of
the AR & Co. team, we look forward
to a record-breaking Dining with
the Arts fundraiser this year,” says
PRYAF Executive Director Vicki
Lee. “This is our organization’s most
important fundraising event, and its
success will enable us to continue
providing classes at no cost in arts
education and resources to the youth
of our community.”
Vicki Lee also explains that by exposing
children to theater, painting,
dance and other art forms, PRYAF
provides a positive means for children
to express themselves, gain
self-esteem and respecting others
which in turn they will carry into
their adult lives and society.
This year’s Dining with the Arts
event, themed “A Star is Born,” will
be held at PRYAF’s headquarters
at 3201 Spring St., Paso Robles,
CA, and will include hors d’oeuvres,
wine, a silent and live auction,
live entertainment from PRYAF’s
students, and a local celebrity-chef
hosted dinner. Tickets cost $80 per
person. To donate to the silent or
live auctions; purchase tickets to the
fundraiser event; or find more information

A special overplanting machine
sprigged and distributed the new
Santa Ana sod. After sprigging, the
fairways were mowed and irrigated
to establish the new grass.
“Our fairway improvement
project achieves two very important
goals: becoming more water
efficient and offering an enhanced
playing experience for our golfers,”
said General Manager John Carson.
“These innovative improvements
position the course as the
touchstone destination for tourists
and locals alike.”

THIS SEMINAR IS FOR EVERYONE
56 Paso Robles Magazine, September 2014
The Voice of the Visitor Center
aaThe Paso Robles
Chamber and Visitor
Center has been busy welcoming
over 3000 visitors in the recent
months, ushering in harvest and
Fall events, completing the Visitor
Center renovation, and gearing up
for the release of our new “Paso
Robles, California” merchandise.
Our visitors come from all over
the world, some for the first time,
others returning to see what they
might have missed. Our locals
are also to thank for their endless
hospitality as family and
friends visited during the spring
and summer months. We find the
many brochures and magazines
about the businesses and region
provide our guests with the proper
information to show-off our
charming area. The first stop for
visitors should be the Paso Robles
Chamber and Visitor Center.
Summer is winding down.
Grape harvest officially kicked off
in early August. The wineries are
in full swing and timing couldn’t be
better to see, first hand, how wine
is made and possibly crush a few
grapes while you are there. Fall will
be ushered in on September 22nd
with a flurry of events celebrating
the local bounty. School starts the
20th of August. The car show has
come and gone. The Ravine Waterpark
is closed for another season.
Football has begun and baseball is
wrapping up. Everyone is ready for
a new season looking forward to
cooler weather, calmer days and a
more settled routine.
This town does not stop with
the change of the seasons. Our
shops, restaurants, wineries, museums,
and businesses remain open
and offer plenty to do all year long.
Events continue through the holiday
season keeping Paso at the
top of the destination list.
VISITOR CENTER VOLUNTEER TEAM
Be part of this elite group of people who will help us here at the
Visitor Center. You will not get bored and for just a few hours a
week you will have the opportunity to share with our many excited
guests this wonderful area and all there is to do and see. We will
provide training on the area, including wineries, bed and breakfasts,
vacation rentals and other points of interest including tours of
these businesses to familiarize you with what they have to offer.
We are looking for friendly people who are familiar with Paso
Robles, those with time and energy to greet our visitors, community
and chamber members. Telephone etiquette is a must as our
phones are busy everyday with inquiries about everything from a
phone number to the name of a particular business. If you are interested,
or want more information contact Karyl Lammers at The
Visitor Center on Sundays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. or Monday thru
Thursday 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The Paso Robles Chamber and
Visitor Center moved to Phase II
of the renovation with the awning,
front door, front trim and signage
being completed. The signage identifies
the Paso Robles Chamber as
the THE VISITOR CENTER
FOR PASO ROBLES. We will be
having our open house this month
to thank everyone for their help
with this project. We have a local
artist creating an oak tree mural in
our Center with the names permanently
applied of those individuals
and businesses who have donated
to this project. This community is
so generous, the tree is our way of
saying thank you and letting everyone
know who made it happen. We
are still accepting donations to help
with Phase II so there is still time to
get your name on the tree.
Watch for our inventory of “Paso
Robles, California” items for sale, we
will carry Tee Shirts, Cheese Boards,
Post Cards and license plate frames
(for which we have a long list) and
more. Come by and check it out if
you need a gift or just want to wear
a Paso Robles Tee Shirt or Cap, we
will have what you want.
The fun & friendly salon that
makes you feel at home.

The El Paso de Robles Area Historical Society
hosted the Pioneer Day Royalty dinner on August
17 at the Paso Robles Inn Ballroom. Our 1st District
Supervisor Frank Mecham welcomed the guests with
his usual heartfelt appreciation for the Pioneer Day
tradition! According to Frank, “This year is a great
125th anniversary for the city. It will be an incredible
Pioneer Day as well. You know, some people make
fun of the hat that I wear for every Pioneer Day.
And I say, ‘I bet you don’t have one of these that says
Paso Robles Mercantile under the brim!”
After being escorted by his grandchildren Daniika,
Ole, Kassandra, and Karalena, Marshal Ole Viborg
was introduced by Tom Madden who complimented
Ole’s dapper Bat Masterson style of a black suit, hat
and red bow tie! While Ole is the first Pioneer Day
Marshal born outside of the United States, Madden
paid tribute to Ole’s love for this country, his contributions
and accomplishments that include the Lions
Club, Boy Scouts, the Jeansville Pump and Roblan
of the Year. Tom added, “Ole has been a trendsetter
all of his life. He mapped his course and paved it.
As a child of immigrants from Denmark, Ole honors
the customs of his homeland by giving to his community.
He loves Pioneer Day and the parade. There’s
not a day that goes by when Ole doesn’t come by the
tractor barn to see how things are going. Ole is as
American as anyone in this room!”
Queen Dottie Reiff was escorted by her husband
Al and great grandson Dylan; followed by her daughters
Mitsie Sewell Smith and Diana Bjorklund. June
Bertoni introduced Dottie; narrating a tribute to her
life with vintage photos of the Abbey, Jardine and Ormonde
families, the Estrella school in 1916, the Hi-Way
Hotel on the corner of 13th and Spring, the Jardine
ranch, handwritten notes and newspaper clippings. Al
and Dottie were married on July 16, 1994. Being a city
dude gone country (with loving persuasion from
Dottie!), Al took to the horses and ranching lifestyle.
Dottie created Reiff Ranch Arabians; lovingly raising
her beauties and riding the back country trails.
With strong roots in ranching, Dottie has been a
member of the Pioneer Day Committee for 8 years.
While she’s rather small in stature, Dottie measures
up to the “best of them” with her mighty strong will
and determination. Her friendships with ranchers,
skilled riders and wagon masters have resulted in
many of the horses, mules, mounted teams, wagons
and buggies that have been featured in past parades.
This year is especially dear to Dottie. She adds, “It is
such an honor to be the Queen on the 125th!”
Paso Robles is the center of the festivities, but Pioneer
Day wouldn’t be complete without the surrounding
areas where many pioneer families settled. These
areas are represented by the Belle and Belle Attendants
who are selected by Karen Roden and Debbie Vandergon.
The 2014 Belle is Abigail Marie Venturini of Willow
Creek. The Belle attendants are Dana Christine
Alpert, Bethel area of Templeton, Alicia Marie Avila of
Lockwood, Katie Anne Kuhnle of Estrella, and Letty
Rae Stockdale of Cholame’s Gillis Canyon.
While our community is always changing; revived
with each new generation, let us not forget that how we
lived 125 years ago still matters. When we respect our
ancestors, we feel rooted; finding ways to cherish our
heritage and assume the honor and responsibility for
keeping the tradition alive.
