How to choose the best self-storage facility

How much space? First, figure out how much space you are going to need. A mini-storage unit can tightly packed to save you money. Consider using boxes and shelving for a good fit.

Is it in a good location? Picking a storage center in Paso Robles makes it convenient if you live here. But also consider the location of the available unit in the facility. Make sure you can easily get your car, van, pick-up, or even semi-truck to the front of the roll-top door, if necessary.

Cost of the storage unit? – Prices for self-storage units in Paso Robles vary. The best way to compare pricing is to do the math and figure out how much it will cost you per square foot. Example: If a 5’x10′ foot unit rents for $50 per month, then you are renting 50-square-feet for $1 per-square-foot. Now compare that price to other storage centers that meet your needs. Remember to ask about discounts or a free first month’s rent.

How long will you need it? Plan ahead for how long you will need to store your stuff. You may be able to get discounts for agreeing to stay a year. It’s usually cheaper than renting the space on a month-to-month basis.

What are the access hours? – Ask about the facilities’ business hours and whether you’ll have access to your storage space after hours.

Is security good? – Look for self-storage centers that have some security features like working cameras and onsite management. If they don’t then expect to pay a little less. Mars Mega Storage in Paso Robles has one of the most secure facilities in North San Luis Obispo County.

Are you covered by insurance? – Many mini storage companies sell extra insurance for your goods. Check first with your homeowners or renters insurance to see if it covers household goods outside of your home.

RocknRobles-pizza-600x430New pizzeria with beer and wine bar opening this summer

A new pizza parlor, Rock’n’Robles Pizza, will be part of the growing Oak Hill Center at Lake Nacimiento. Adjacent to the Oak Hill Market, Rock’n’Robles Pizza will serve the Heritage Ranch community and surrounding area.

“Milt Souza who’s the owner of the Oak Hill Center and the Oak Hill Market has really changed our way of life out here. He set out to serve our community… we just wanted to be a part of that idea!” says Patty Sieveke of Rock’n’Robles Pizza, who along with fellow owner Bill Kauker is preparing for the opening of the restaurant which is tentatively scheduled to open its doors early summer. “We really set out to create a gathering place for the community… a place for everyone to come together,” Ms. Sieveke said.

The parlor will serve handmade pizzas, appetizers, salads, Panini sandwiches and other options, to pair with local craft and larger production beers available on tap and by the bottle. The parlor will also feature local wines of the region and beyond, served by the glass and bottle. Pizza delivery to the local area is also planned.

The parlor will have televised sports on multiple screens at the bar and in the dining area, as well as outside under the outdoor covered patio. It is also set to have an outdoor country porch stage that will showcase local and traveling musicians. The restaurant was designed by Keith Hall of Parallel Design Studios in San Luis Obispo.

“Thanks to Wieman Construction and everyone who’s had a hand in making Rock’n’Robles come together, really soon we’ll be serving up some great pizza and drinks in an incredibly cool, comfortable, and fun environment,” said Kauker.

They are looking to hire all positions: experienced Cooks, bartenders, hosts, servers, bus persons, dishwashers, and delivery drivers. Candidates are encouraged to go to to download an employment application.

A former Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputy living in Heritage Ranch was arraigned recently in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court for the robbery of a Cambria bank. 70-year-old Bruce Franklin Valentine’s bail was set at $250,000.

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended the bank robbery suspect at his Paso Robles home on Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Detectives with the sheriff’s office and investigators with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s office served a search warrant at a home in the 4700 block of Egret Lane in Heritage Ranch outside of Paso Robles where they arrested him.

Valentine was taken into custody at 8:50 a.m. without incident and transported to the County Jail. Valentine became a suspect as detectives followed up on leads gained during the initial investigation of the robbery. The investigation is continuing.

Pumpkin farm near Heritage Ranch

Pumpkin Farm Opens in Paso RoblesLost-Dutchmans-Mine

Bring the kids out and stroll through the giant Paso Robles pumpkin patch at the new Granny’s Garden at San Marcos Ranch, just north of Paso Robles.

Owner Carolyn Davis hosted a grand opening celebration at the beginning of October.

The family fun includes a corn maze, a straw maze for young kids, the haunted lost Dutchman’s mine, and lots of crazy critters, including an emu, Jacob sheep, draft horses and long horned cattle.

The lost Dutchman, a crusty old miner, will be giving rides on his burro for the little ones.

“Granny’s Gardens” at the ranch has a large assortment of exotic pumpkins, squashes and gourds. Many of them are delicious to eat and they all make great decorations for the holidays.Pumpkins

With agricultural tourism flourishing in San Luis Obispo County, Davis thought this would be the perfect time to open a new attraction in the county.

“We are very excited about the grand opening,” Davis said. “I think kids are really going to enjoy all the activities we have planned for the weekends. Be sure to come see us!”

The ranch will be open from 10 a.m. to dusk everyday through Thanksgiving.

The pumpkin farm is located just a few miles north of downtown Paso Robles. Take Highway 101 north to the San Marcos Road exit. Drive one mile west to 775 San Marcos Road. For more information, call (805) 467-3315.
