About $6,000 built the Temple of the People in Halcyon, which was completed in 1924. Almost 100 years later, the temple is on its sixth guardian-in-chief, has 300 members around the world from several religious denominations, and is still guided by the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” In this first installment of a two-part series, Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal from the Sun’s sister paper, New Times, speaks with the guardian-in-chief to understand more about the Theosophical Society and learn about its origins [8].
In addition, you can read about a Central Coast oil pipeline that’s being decommissioned [4]; an Orcutt resident and AI-generated theater [28]; and the new rooftop restaurant in Pismo Beach [32].
