5A8E>;>DB;0FBD8CB. I worked with [managing editor] Bob Swofford from 2006 to 2008 and observed how he acted with others in the newsroom (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two Towers,â&#x20AC;? May 13). I always found him to be professional, fair and a true gentleman. The allegations set forth in the lawsuit seem preposterous to me. I think we all lose when frivolous lawsuits are filed, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what this seems to be.

A8B:C0:4AA41D5543 Re the Press Democrat lawsuit, Leigh Behrens intimidated even the big boys in New York. In Santa Rosa, what she may have lacked in approach, she made up for taking risks, which the PD needed to do.

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;boys clubâ&#x20AC;? didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that, nor were they able to be cutting-edge for their online product. My job in recruiting was eliminated. I loved working for the PD and for the New York Times. I brought new ideas and felt the resistance toward fast change. I felt and saw first-hand the weaknesses the PD has, and how a select few run the joint in advertising, which, in the end, pays all the salaries. And, yes, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spin on a dime to make or correct changes that could relieve those who padded the profit centers for years, especially in recruitment. The deep pockets of the New York Times are no longer. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clubâ&#x20AC;? nor did I kiss anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butt, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got stories and can tell you that Leigh was too cutting-edge, and she was a woman. The news guys just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the heat.

38AC<034<H;D=27 Ari Le Vauxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regulating Dirtâ&#x20AC;? had me sympathizing (May 13). Who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like small family farms, backyard gardens, farmers markets, â&#x20AC;&#x153;your flock of backyard chickens,â&#x20AC;? etc.? After all, writes Le Vaux, our right to grow our own food is â&#x20AC;&#x153;as inalienable as the right to bear arms.â&#x20AC;? Those evil lawmakers better not screw with that right. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna stand guard in my back yard. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take my home-grown turnips when they pry my cold, dead, fingers from them!

>=4F>A3)>D27 I have something to get off my chest with Thomas M. Harrigan, who responded (Letters, May 6) to Tom Marianiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April 22 Open Mic column, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words Fail.â&#x20AC;? Mr. Harrigan, sir, did you even read Marianiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column before you went off half-cocked? Mariani wrote about the Orwellian manipulation of language or â&#x20AC;&#x153;double-speakâ&#x20AC;? that can, and does, unfortunately occur all too often in our society, both in and outside of our penal colonies. Mariani wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t whining about anything. With all due respect, Mr. Harringan, sir, the only whiner I hear is the one standing in your corner. Yes, I called you a whiner, and, as a friend, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to recommend that the next time you blow your stack, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you read the editorial first and compose your thoughts well enough to make an adequate and appropriate response before taking that mad cow rush to get your name in the paper.

A potent algal neurotoxin could threaten Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brown pelicans just as officials move to delist them By Aleta George

F

hen word came to the Central Coast WildRescue center this winter that California brown pelicans were showing up in the mountains or wandering on roads far from the sea, wildlife paramedics set out to find them. They saw dozens of dead ones in the greater Monterey Bay area, said WildRescue founder Rebecca Dmytryk. Those that were still alive acted â&#x20AC;&#x153;down,â&#x20AC;? a term used to describe a bird that is not bright and alert. The 28 surviving pelicans were carefully captured and transported to the International Bird Rescue Research Center in Cordelia at the northern end of San Francisco Bay.

During what came to be known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pelican mortality eventâ&#x20AC;? this winter, at least 500 pelicans were reported dead or debilitated along the West Coast from Astoria, Oregon to Baja California. Some showed signs of disorientation and some were found in odd places, such as a mountain in New Mexico. Many had severe frostbite on their pouches and feet, leading scientists to believe that the cause of the event was likely related to climate change. With unseasonably warm fall weather in the Pacific Northwest, some 5,000 pelicans had lingered at their summer and fall roosting sites in northern Oregon. When a freezing winter storm hit in mid-December, they were forced to migrate in harsh conditions that included 60 mph winds. During the event, scientists, vets and

rehabilitators shared notes and tested the dead birds. San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sea World performed necropsy exams on eight to 10 birds. The U.S. Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Center in Wisconsin tested four. Tests were also run at the California Animal Health and Food Safety Lab at UC Davis and the California Department of Fish and Gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marine Wildlife Lab in Santa Cruz. The birds tested negative for avian influenza and West Nile virus, and though there were a few birds that tested positive for domoic acidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a type of harmful algae bloom that has been the cause of bird and marine mammal mortalities since its discovery in 1991â&#x20AC;&#x201D;but the levels were low. David Jessup, senior wildlife veterinarian for the California Department of Fish and Game, compiled information &&

from pathology reports, transect counts and observations from field biologists and clinicians. What he found was a variety of signs and symptoms that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consistent. The findings led him to state in an interim report that the December storm seems to have been the primary cause of the event, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for all observations or findings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some other causes of illness and death remain unexplained,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. One thing researchers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t test for was saxitoxin, one of the most potent natural toxins known. Saxitoxins are a family of single-celled naturally occurring dinoflagellates that cause paralytic seafood poisoning (PSP) in humans. Maybe they should have run those tests. While the pelicans dive-bombed for fish in Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late Indian summer weather, the entire coast of Oregon was closed to mussel harvesting due to elevated levels of PSP toxins. Is it possible that PSP toxins were a factor in the pelican mortality event? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly possible,â&#x20AC;? says Matt Hunter, shellfish project leader of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but without testing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say.â&#x20AC;?

Saxitoxin Spike Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they test the birds for saxitoxin? For one, as of late February, Jessup wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware of the musselharvesting closure. Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big red-tide event that covered multiple counties like the one California had in 1991. Gregg Langlois, a senior environmental scientist with the California Department of Public Health, had just started his job in 1991 when he witnessed a saxitoxin-laced bloom, or red tide, that covered Marin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay. (Physical discolorations in the water are referred to as blooms, but not all visible blooms are toxic.) There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bloom in Oregon this winter, just mussels with enough toxins in their f lesh to warrant a ban on harvesting. Along the West Coast, PSP toxins are associated with upwelling and can threaten human health and coastal economies. To help keep the public safe, shellfish are tested regularly. In California, shellfish are monitored for neurotoxins year-round, in addition to seasonal quarantines. In Oregon, the Department of Agriculture (ODA) tests razor clams, oysters and mussels for PSP toxins and domoic acid, both of which can cause minor illness and more serious problems leading to death. If the bivalves tested show 20 parts per million for domoic acid or 0.8 parts per million for PSP (80 Îźg/ 100 g), the area is closed to harvesting for a minimum of two weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The closures are not unusual,â&#x20AC;? says Sarah Schwab, a food-safety specialist with the ODA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is unusual is the length of time the beaches were closed to harvesting this fall and winter.â&#x20AC;? The ODA closed the entire coastline of Oregon to mussel harvesting on Oct. 10, 2008, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deem harvesting safe until Jan. 20, 2009, when they reopened the beaches. The highest spike in PSP toxins found was on Nov. 10 in northern Oregon at Silver Point, with 441.4 Îźg/100 g, and at Cape Meares, with 384.6 Îźg/100 g, four to five

times the threshold amount. Both locations are south of the Columbia River and within foraging range of East Sand Island, the largest communal pelican night roost north of the Farallon Islands. The numbers seen in Oregon donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reflect mussels that are particularly â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot,â&#x20AC;? according to Hunter. To put the numbers into perspective, the 1991 PSP red tide seen by Langlois in Marin County topped out at 10,000 Îźg/100 g. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that even relatively low concentrations are dangerous to wildlife. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unknown how sublethal exposure affects a birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a handle on the lethal dose of toxins for birds,â&#x20AC;? Langlois says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a black hole.â&#x20AC;? Paralytic seafood poisoning toxins are known to bioaccumulate in shellfish, like mussels and razor clams, but not necessarily in pelagic fish like sardines and anchovies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally, we think of PSP toxins as showing up in shellfish,â&#x20AC;? says Raphael Kundela, a professor in ocean sciences at UC Santa Cruz, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but many organisms eat phytoplankton, including fish.â&#x20AC;? In an article in the January 2009 issue of Harmful Algae, a group of scientists reported that they found the first evidence of PSP toxins in northern anchovies and Pacific sardines in Monterey Bay and some California coastal regions. Pelicans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat shellfish, but they do eat sardines and anchovies.

A New Threat California brown pelicans are getting ready to fly off the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endangered species list. In early February, the state Fish and Game Commission voted to take them off the list where they have been since 1971. If approved by the Office of Administrative Law, the pelican will be the first endangered species in the state to be delisted due to recovery. Their numbers have now reached 8,500 pairs. As pelicans f ly into the sunset with their eight-foot wingspan, harmful algae blooms are increasing with virility around the world. Scientists arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t certain why, but suspect increased nutrients from agricultural runoff and human waste, changes in the climate and the movement of algae in ballast water. In California, there has been a sea change in the dominant phytoplankton community since 2004, says Kundela. Dinof lagellates are on the rise. Scientists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the reason for this either, he says, but they suspect that with less upwelling and warmer surface water, conditions are selecting for more dinof lagellates. Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waters are changing, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first started 14 years ago, PSP was a summertime event and domoic acid was a cooler water, winter event,â&#x20AC;? says ODAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dawn Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case anymore. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now seeing PSP in the dead of winter.â&#x20AC;? The good news is that the West Coast is well monitored and regulated. As a result, there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a human illness caused by PSP in the last decade. The bad news for pelicans and other seabirds is that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read the posted signs or check their emails for notices of harmful algae blooms. They gulp what they see, and as an indicator species, communicate whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in our oceans.

<PZX]V2PbW6aTT] Why we need a Green New Deal

By Norman Solomon

8

n the Arctic, sea ice is melting. In the United States, houses are foreclosing. And in Washington, the Senate is becoming a real-life Bermuda Triangle for progressive agendas. Proposals for major limits on carbon emissions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting far in the Senate, where the corporate war on the environment has an abundance of powerful allies. As for class war, it continues to rage from the top down. Recently, a dozen Democratic senators teamed up with Republicans to defeat a bill that would have allowed judges to reduce mortgages in bankruptcy courts. President Obama supported that bill. But as the Associated Press reported, he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;facing stiff opposition from banksâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;did little to pressure lawmakersâ&#x20AC;? on behalf of the measure. The Senate â&#x20AC;&#x153;defeated a plan to spare hundreds of thousands of homeowners from foreclosure through bankruptcy.â&#x20AC;? Big-money vultures are circling the Capitol Dome to feast on the latest multibillion-dollar carrion, whether under the heading of â&#x20AC;&#x153;cap and tradeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;healthcare reform.â&#x20AC;? And many billions in profits can be found inside yet another supplemental bill to fund war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Meanwhile, a familiar pattern is unfolding for the most important piece of labor legislation in decades, the Employee Free Choice Act, which would go a long way toward protecting the rights of workers to form unions. Obama says he supports EFCA. But there are no signs that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go all-out for its passage. There are pluses and minuses on Capitol Hill these days. But on big-picture items, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that environmentalists and labor-rights activists are mostly up against the corporate wall, and that wall is not yielding. We need a Green New Deal. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen without a lot more effective grassroots coalitions, strong and sustained enough to change power relations for the long haul. But acculturation in the States often encourages us to think along the lines of solo acts. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the old American story about the solitary Dutch boy who discovers that a dike has sprung a leak. He inserts his finger, hangs in there heroically by himself and saves the town.

But in the real world, individual heroics are a foolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gold when compared to the genuine value of building political movements. The immense obstacles to effective grassroots organizing can be overcome not by lone rangers, but by persistent organizers and coalition-builders. During the last six months, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve participated in a lengthy series of meetings with many other local activists. Across two counties in Northern California, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about to launch a longterm project called the Green New Deal for the North Bay. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a start. But as we begin a round of public forums throughout the region, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the process of developing a grassroots agenda for far-reaching change that will address two key questions. First, how can we create a sustainable green future that includes economic equity and social justice? Second, how can agendas for economic rights and environmental protection become more integrated and more successful? Seventy-five years after the start of the New Deal, and nearly 40 years after the first Earth Day, the need for basic change on behalf of social justice and ecology is clear. But ideas are the easy part. In an era of massive environmental damage and vast economic inequality, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to organize. Green New Deal community meetings are Thursday, May 21, at 6:30pm at the Sonoma Community Center, 276 E. Napa St., Sonoma. Saturday, May 30, at 5pm at the Santa Rosa City Hall, 100 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa. Tuesday, June 2, at 6pm at the Petaluma Library, 100 Fairgrounds Drive, Petaluma. Thursday, June 4, at 6:30pm at the Novato School District Office, 1015 Seventh St., Novato. For details, go to www.greennewdeal.info.

Fighting Frank Luntz for a chance at good public healthcare By Juliane Poirier

northern neighbor of ours many years ago made the crisp distinction between residents of Canada and those of the United States, wryly insisting on similarity. Canadians, he explained, are simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;unarmed Americans with healthcare coverage.â&#x20AC;? Many of us are concerned about our dysfunctional healthcare system, the one institution where one would not expect greed to run ahead of compassionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;unless you live in this country, where we are sadly used to it. But change is on the wind; Obama is taking the first steps toward healthcare reform. And just in time. In a 2008 report by UC Berkeley School of Law professor Jacob Hacker, I found a poetic understatement of our plight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Case for Public Plan Choice in National Health Care Reformâ&#x20AC;? includes these words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Health insurance premiums have skyrocketed, more than doubling from 1999 to 2008, while the scope and generosity of private coverage has plummeted.â&#x20AC;? When I think about what my healthcare insurance provided me when I suffered an emergency hospitalization last year, scope and generosity do not enter my mind. In fact, I now know from experience that Michael Moore was not making this stuff up. Go ahead and watch Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary Sicko to see what kinds of deaths an insured American can expect at the hands of insurance companies that pay employees bonuses for denying patients needed medical procedures. These same companies and their allies are trying to stop Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pubic health insurance plan. In a Huffington Post article, U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley announced, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Republican strategist Dr. Frank Luntz is laying out plans to dismantle any effort to give all Americans access to quality health care. Dr. Luntz, the man who developed language designed to promote preemptive war in Iraq and distract from the severity of global warming, is at it againâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this time with a messaging strategy designed to sink our historic opportunity for health care reform.â&#x20AC;? To stop Luntz, activists are turning to

analysis provided by Hacker and his colleagues at the Center on Health, Economic and Family Security. Drawing from their report, MoveOnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political action team is passing around â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Five Things You Need to Know About Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Public Heath Insurance Option:â&#x20AC;? 1. Choice, choice, choice. If the public health insurance option passes, Americans will be able to choose between their current insurance and a high-quality, government-run plan similar to Medicare. If you like your current care, you can keep it. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can get the public insurance plan. 2. It will be highquality coverage with a choice of doctors. Government-run plans have a track record of innovating to improve quality, because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just focused on short-term profits. And if you choose the public plan, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still get to choose your doctor and hospital. 3. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll all save a bunch of money. The public health insurance option wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to spend money on things like CEO bonuses, shareholder dividends or excessive advertising, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost a lot less. Plus, the private plans will have to lower their rates and provide better value to compete, so people who keep their current insurance will save, too. 4. It will always be there for you and your family. A for-profit insurer can close, move out of the area or just kick you off its insurance rolls. The public health insurance option will always be available to provide you with the health security you need. 5. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a key part of universal healthcare. No longer will sick people, folks in rural communities or low-income Americans be forced to go without coverage. The public health insurance plan will be available and accessible to everyone. And for those struggling to make ends meet, the premiums will be subsidized by the government. While I study yet another bill from the Bay Area hospital where I stayed, for charges my insurance company refuses to pay, I hope that Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pubic health option might succeed. I suspect it might give us a way out of this system where greed diminishes the â&#x20AC;&#x153;scope and generosityâ&#x20AC;? of our medical care.

I now know from experience that Michael Moore was not making this stuff up.

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been more than 70 years since the discovery that reducing the number of calories fed to rats could nearly double their lifespan. In the 1980s, research intensified on the possible life-prolonging properties of reduced caloric intake, and the correlation has held in virtually every corner of the animal kingdom studiedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from singlecelled yeast to worms to insects to miceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that eating less translates into longer life. This research has inspired many people to actively reduce their caloric intake in hopes of living longer, healthier lives. Most prominent among these undereaters is the Calorie Restriction Society (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fewer Calories, More Lifeâ&#x20AC;? is the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto). The CR Society was established in 1994 to provide support and information to those interested in pursuing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;CR lifestyle,â&#x20AC;? as they call it. The website www.calorierestriction.org contains a lot of published research data supporting the benefits of the CR lifestyle, as well as press clippings of CR in the media. But the results of

one recent study are absent. This omission is especially conspicuous given that Calorie Restriction Society members were a focus of the study. The study, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long-Term Effects of Calorie or Protein Restriction on Serum IGF-1 and IGFBP-3 Concentration in Humans,â&#x20AC;? conducted by Luigi Fontana, et al., and published in the journal Aging Cell, investigates the relationship between dietary calories and protein on the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IGF-1 levels. IGF-1, which stands for â&#x20AC;&#x153;insulin-like growth factor 1,â&#x20AC;? is a protein-based hormone. IGF-1 has been shown to promote tumor development, and because of that, and for other reasons too, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widely believed in biomedical research circles that IGF-1 regulation is a key factor in determining the life span of many organisms. Reduced caloric intake in rodents has been shown to cause a dramatic reduction in IGF-1 levels, and this is presumed to play a role in the mechanism by which caloric restriction extends rodent lifespan. But when Fontana and company measured the IGF-1 levels of members of the Calorie Restriction Society, after an average of six years of caloric restriction, they found, to their surprise, IGF-1 levels nearly comparable to those

eating a typical Western diet. This suggests that eating less might not give humans the same lifeprolonging benefits it gives mice. Another dietary group in this study consisted of vegans. As they eat no animal products, vegans tend to eat less protein, while consuming more calories and weighing more, on average, than the calorie restrictors. And while calorie restrictors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show dramatically lower levels of IGF-1, vegans did. The researchers then tweaked the diet of the calorie-restriction group, holding calorie intake low and reducing their protein intake as well. After three weeks, these people showed a dramatic reduction in IGF-1 levels, leading the researchers to conclude that in humans, caloric restriction alone isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to lower IGF-1 levels; it must also be coupled with protein restriction. Interestingly, these results have not made it to CalorieRestriction.org, which continues to promote high levels of protein consumption in the CR diet. Perhaps this blow to the fundamental pillar of the CR Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dogma was more than they cared to acknowledge. Such is the way of cultish behavior. This research also shoots a big hole in '& THE BOHEMIAN

many of the trendy low-carb/high fat/high protein diets like Atkins, the Zone and South Beach. While it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dispute that these diets may indeed help you lose weight, this research does suggest that they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good for you. Kudos to Michael Pollan, whose 2008 book In Defense of Food argues that the healthiest diet consists of smaller portions of high-quality plant-based foods. The bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central creed reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.â&#x20AC;? And while his â&#x20AC;&#x153;eaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manifestoâ&#x20AC;? is supported by the IGF-1 study, Pollan maintains a level of skepticism toward using reductionist science to study diet, a practice he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;nutritionismâ&#x20AC;?: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The widely shared but unexamined assumption [of nutritionism] is that the key to understanding food is indeed the nutrient. Put another way: Foods are essentially the sum of their nutrient parts.â&#x20AC;? While Pollan is by no means anti-science, he argues that nutritionism has sent dietary guidelines on a roller-coaster ride in recent decades, with foods like margarine coming in and out of favor. The deluge of low-fat foods on the market, meanwhile, has done more to increase obesity rates then curb them, because, as we know now, dietary carbohydrates make people gain more weight than fat. Pollan argues that there is an ecology to food that makes it greater than the sum of its parts. It includes where the nutrients are from and what they are consumed with. The first part of his eaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manifesto, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eat food,â&#x20AC;? draws a distinction between industrially produced food and ecologically correct food, with only the latter truly qualifying as food. In the IGF-1 study, there is little mention of where the protein comes from, aside from the obvious fact that the vegans got all of their protein from plants. But the processes by which different proteins are created have different health implications on the eater. Protein from 100 percent grass-fed beef, for example, may be similar to protein from factory-farmed beef, but the factory-farmed beef is fed a diet of grain, which literally creates a different animal. Since cows didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t evolve to eat grain, grain-fed cattle tend to get sick more often and are thus injected with more antibiotics. While I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how these differences might affect IGF-1 levels in the blood of the cow eater, a relationship isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inconceivable. The fact that the IGF-1 study made no attempt to standardize the sources of the proteins in question is a big deal, I believe. Plant protein vs. animal protein; wild meat vs. domestic; free-range vs. confinementâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; these all have major bearing on the ecology of a meal, as would the presence or absence of a nice glass of wine along with it. So while I read with interest the results of studies like this one, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be more interested if the study distinguished between the protein in a Whopper and the protein in a piece of grass-fed beef. Nutritionism might not value the difference between clean, local food and industrially produced food, but I agree with Pollan. It matters. THE BOHEMIAN

5>>3 A424BB8>= edwood Empire Food Bank (REFB), the largest food bank on Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Coast, is running low on food. Contributions that were made last winter are nearly gone, and as more and more families are turning to food pantries because of the recession, the need for donations is imperative, says REFB executive director David Goodman. With Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment rate hovering near 10 percent, the REFB is trying to increase donations by 16 percent. The food bank will be collecting food and cash donations from the public from May to July with a goal to raise $10,000 in cash and receive 30,000 pounds of nonperishable food.

R

These food donations are put directly on the shelves and out to pantries in the North Bay. The recession is affecting us all, yet those without food will be hit the worst if the food banks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t well supplied. Food donations can be made where there are REFB barrels, at such locations as the Santa Rosa Grocery Outlet, all Starbucks, Zone Music in Cotati and the Sonoma Valley YMCA. There will be food barrels at Safeways countywide from July to August. Bags of food can also be dropped off at REFB headquarters.

ooey cheese, spiced meat, fried plantains, and veggies meet in harmony inside a crisp corn cake. This delicacy, called arepas, is the specialty of Pica Pica, a Venezuelan restaurant in Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oxbow Public Market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pica picaâ&#x20AC;? translates to â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little bit of this and a little bit of that,â&#x20AC;? and the restaurant is holding true to its title by offering a little more to customers with its new plans to expand and offer a Latin-style beverage bar. The bar is set to open in August, and folks can quench their thirst with fancy drinks like fruit shakers (blended fruit drinks), sangria and various wine cocktails. There will also be Venezuelan bar food, featuring such refreshing dishes as ceviche. Instead of buying an expensive ďŹ&#x201A;ight to South America this summer, take a short trip to Pica Pica and dine on sweet corn pancakes, yucca fries and empanadas, and delight in the ďŹ&#x201A;avors of another culture right in your backyard. Pica Pica. Oxbow Public Market, 610 First St., Napa. 707.251.3757.

0AC8BC48<?A4BB8>=8BC F8=4AHC0BC8=6BCD38> rtiste is exactly what it sounds like, but what is that, exactly? It may sound, to some readers, like everything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treacly and fatal about winetasting. The marriage of art and wine, wine as art, la and da; the palette of one even more cloying than the palate of the other. I did have preconceptions as I strolled down the stretch of Healdsburg Avenue that segues from bistro-boutiqueybobo to shoe-repair Americana, with barber shops, too. I imagined an antiseptic gallery with track lighting and a terse, upfront mention of the tasting fee, the more prudently to dissuade drifters in faded jeans.

Enjoy the Best Inexpensive Dinner in Napa

Inside, I found the space more decorative, interesting and fun than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d guessed. The decor is stage-set French cafe (mustard walls, blue shutters); the artwork similarly themed. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also interactive: visitors can go to town on easels and sketchbooks scattered throughout, with a liberal supply of paint and pastels. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they mean by â&#x20AC;&#x153;impressionistâ&#x20AC;? winery: the winemaker and owner choose a suitable piece from a portfolio for the wine label, and then, often collaborating with the artist, blend wine that they feel matches the particular palette. Unsurprisingly, the art is pleasantly unchallenging, suitable for the general public. The wines are soft and approachable, not overly lush and sensuousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the labels must be deemed printable by a government agency, after all. With the sensibility of the aesthete, Artiste has chosen to top bottles with thick, wax caps in colors that complement the label art. These wax tops look fetching, sure, and are the scourge of waiters everywhere, inspiring epic struggles. These factors would seem suggest the winesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; primary utility as gifts and collectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pieces, but for those who vanquish the wax, Artiste offers free rewaxing, so that the bottle may be saved. The Bloom RosĂŠ was truly redolent of ďŹ&#x201A;owersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a real, vegetative rose aroma, no less. But it wilted a bit on the palate, and could have used a little more zip. Les Fleurs ($35) is a kitchen-sink white blend dominated by racy GewĂźrztraminer; tropical fruit and white grapefruit make it crisp and lively for summer afternoons. CafĂŠ Noir ($55), inspired by the Bandol region in the south of France but not so rustic as its muse may be, is a soft, vanilla-perfumed Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre blend. Ă&#x2030;levage ($42), impression: Pomerol, is mostly Merlot with a ďŹ&#x201A;avorful but faithfully tart cranberry-plum palate and eminently innocuous tannins. Ah, but what makes any tasting fee worth a sawbuckâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if I may be so vulgarâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is fromage! With each tasting, Artiste presents a â&#x20AC;&#x153;paletteâ&#x20AC;? of dried fruit, olives and cheese including Ewephoria, a nutty, sweet and spicy sheepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk gouda. Impression: fun day date or weekend outing with visiting relatives susceptible to the charms of pastels and wine, or with friends who are not too cool for art school. Artiste, 439 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. Open daily 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5:30pm. $10 fee. 707.433.1920.

Few things are more exciting than catching fast rising artists who are coming into their own. We’ve got a bevy of highly talented players on this program who are forging highly personal approaches to jazz. Debbie Poryes Trio with Bill Douglas and Dave Rokeach. A gifted pianist and respected educator, Poryes took a major step in 2008 with the release of her gorgeous trio CD, A Song In Jazz. While only her second recording under her own name, the album captures a fully realized musician with a keen melodic imagination, supple sense of rhythm and crystalline touch. Guitarist Jason Bodlovich is a North Bay resident has honed an eclectic group sound informed by Gypsy swing, bossa nova and post-bop harmonies. An ambitious composer, Bodlovich is also a savvy bandleader who effectively combines four distinct voices in his band featuring bassist Miles Wick, drummer James Stafford and pianist Noam Lemish. Part of a wave of brilliant Israeli jazz musicians who have invigorated the U.S. jazz scene over the past 15 years, pianist/composer Noam Lemish leads a fierce but lyrical ensemble that features a sterling cast of improvisers. Last fall, he released an impressive debut CD, Yes And, a collaboration featuring George Marsh, focusing on Lemish’s original tunes. The pianist’s current combo showcases some of the best young improvisers on the West Coast, with bassist Miles Wick and drummer Smith Dobson Jr. combining for a powerful rhythm section tandem, while altoist Kasey Knudsen and tenor saxophonist Matt Rothstein provide deft ensemble work and incisive solos.

Palette Art Café | 35 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg (707) 433-2788 | 8pm Dinner served starting at 6:30 pm No Cover Brazilian music continues at the Palette. The venue will serve exotic Brazilian cuisine including an Outdoor BBQ: Rice with coconut milk, Feijoada - Black beans & Sausage, Esfihas - Beef Empanadas, Churrasquiho Barbeque Brazilian style; Beef, Chicken, Sausage and Vegetables, and Panquecas - Vegetarian Dinner Crepes Meal price - $20 with advanced reservations, $25 at the venue Grupo Falso Baiano is a captivating quartet that plays traditional choro, as well as contemporary, jazz-tinged arrangements. It features Zack Pitt-Smith on reeds, Niko Bell on cavaquinho, Brian Moran on seven-string guitar and Los Angeles based percussionist Ami Molinelli.

The 1960s were one of the most exciting periods for jazz in San Francisco, and the Healdsburg Jazz Festival is pleased to present two musical legends whose diverse and wide range of styles defined the eclecticism of the era. Known as jazz’s Renaissance man for combining his careers as renowned psychiatrist and world-class pianist and composer, Denny Zeitlin first gained attention in the mid-60s for his astonishing interplay with bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Jerry Granelli (featured on the recent reissue Denny Zeitlin: The Columbia Studio Trio Sessions). In the 70s, he was at the forefront in exploring electronic music, while in recent decades he’s returned to the piano on acclaimed duo and trio recordings with artists such as Buster Williams and Matt Wilson. Zeitlin is at his most expansive on solo piano outings, taking audiences on thrilling improvisational journeys that he describes as his “most intensely personal” music. One of the most innovative and visionary alto saxophonists in post-bop era, John Handy has been a creative force for half a century. From his work with Charles Mingus in the late 1950s and his star-making triumph at the 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival, through his pioneering world music collaborations with Indian sarod legend Ali Akbar Khan, and his hit 1976 R&B album Hard Work, Handy has blazed a brilliant trail as an improviser, composer, bandleader and educator. Always looking to combine musical elements in surprising ways, Handy’s Melding Pot Ensemble fuses blues and funk, bebop, mambo, and folkloric South American cadences. Featuring Paraguay-born Carlos Reyes on violin and Paraguayan harp, hard swinging pianist David K. Mathews, ace bassist Jeff Chambers, versatile drummer Deszon X. Claiborne, and the supremely soulful jazz singer Kenny Washington, the band is blessed with an abundance of talent, including the rare capability of following Handy in any direction.

Tickets: $25 General; Students and Seniors (65+) $15.00 Tickets will be on sale at the venue on the day of the event. As citizens of a vast, diverse, continent-sized nation, Brazilians are united by several powerfully binding passions: samba, soccer, and Antonio Carlos Jobim. The event is essentially a mini-festival of Brazilian music featuring some of the country’s greatest musicians, with a special focus on the vast treasure trove of tunes written by Jobim, one of the 20th century’s most revered composers. Guitarist Toninho Horta is a gifted improviser who has been a major force since he emerged in the early 1970s as part of Milton Nascimento’s Minas Gerais collective, Clube da Esquina. His influence spread far beyond Brazil during the 1980s when he lived in New York, inspiring American artists such as Pat Metheny. For his Healdsburg performance, Horta brings an extraordinary rhythm section featuring Panamanian-born bass master Santi Debriano, drum innovator Billy Hart, and special guest Airto Moreira, a percussion giant whose career highlights include classic recordings with Miles Davis, a founding stint with Weather Report, and hit albums with his wife, vocalist Flora Purim. Trio da Paz is an all-star New York ensemble uniting three of Brazil’s finest jazz musicians, guitarist Romero Lubambo, bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Duduka Da Fonseca, who have honed a gorgeous repertoire of Brazilian standards and modern jazz tunes. Together and separately, the three musicians have played and recorded with a who’s who of the American and Brazilian jazz scene. On a scene bursting with sumptuously talented singers, Leny Andrade has long stood out in Brazil with her warm, burnished contralto and her lithe, flowing phrasing. A worthy successor to Elis Regina’s throne, Andrade is widely hailed as Brazil’s greatest living jazz singer, a gifted improviser who combines bossa nova’s luscious melodic sensibility with a compelling sense of swing. For her Healdsburg performance, Andrade is joined by Sonoma County jazz pianist Stephanie Ozer. The band includes saxophonist Mary Fettig, bassist Scott Thompson, and Brazilian drummer Celso Alberti. Samba de Raiz, a popular Bay Area group devoted to foundational Brazilian rhythms, features percussionist Jorge Alabe and Niko Bell on cavaquinho, the ancient, ukulele-like four-string instrument that provides the essential pulse and texture to so much Brazilian music. Everyone in the group also contributes vocals, creating a rich, luxuriant sound behind lead singer Ana Carbatti.

With a beguiling blend of Brazilian melodies, Afro-Caribbean grooves, post-bop harmonies and lilting vocals, 24 year old bassist Esperanza Spalding combines the imaginative flights of a serious improviser with the stage presence and musical accessibility of a pop star. At 20, the Portland native became the youngest musician ever hired as an instructor at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, a faculty gig she landed after graduating from the school in 2005.With her infectious bandstand charisma, huge sound and singular sense of time she has already racked up an impressive array of credits, performing and recording with such jazz greats as bassist Stanley Clarke, guitarist Pat Metheny, and saxophonist Joe Lovano. The release of her second, self-named album Esperanza triggered the kind of visibility rarely accorded a jazz musician, including a round of network television performances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Late Show with David Letterman.” For her first Healdsburg performance, Esperanza brings her stylistically flexible touring band featuring Ricardo Vogt on guitar, Leo Genovese on piano and Otis Brown on drums.

Santa Rosa-raised Julian Lage needs no introduction in Healdsburg, as he’s played just about every festival since the beginning. But this year marks a major leap for the dazzling 21 year-old guitarist, who returns from Boston to celebrate his debut recording on EmArcy, Sounding Point. While most musicians are just starting to come into their own at that age, Lage is already a well-traveled professional. Over the past decade he’s gained international attention through tours and recordings with vibraphone great Gary Burton’s Generations Band, for his thrilling duo concerts with pianist Taylor Eigsti and performances with Pat Metheny, David Grisman and Marian McPartland. On his long anticipated debut album, Lage joined forces with a typically diverse array of players, including banjo star Bela Fleck and mandolin maestro Chris Thile of Nickel Creek fame and a host of stellar young players he met back east. The group he is bringing to Healdsburg features saxophonist Ben Roseth, cellist Aristides Rivas, bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer/percussionist Tupac Mantilla, all of whom appear on the new recording. The international ensemble explores Lage’s fascinating compositions, which draw on his vast palette of influences. This Studio Barndiva performance may be one of the last chances to catch this hometown prodigy turned international virtuoso in an intimate setting.

Since his days as the house drummer at Keystone Korner, Eddie Marshall has been the Bay Area’s first-call drummer, the cat to call when heavyweights like Dexter Gordon, Freddie Hubbard, Stan Getz and Bobby Hutcherson worked in town. A dependably inspired accompanist, he never fails to provide tasteful and powerfully swinging rhythmic support. Increasingly stepping forward as a bandleader in his own right, Marshall has developed a repertoire that reflects his capacious musical imagination. His trio features bassist Mike Richmond and pianist Joe Gilman.

Tickets are on sale at the venue on the day of the event. General Outdoor seating on the lawn. Low chairs allowed. Umbrellas permitted along the back fence only. Children 10 and under are free. James Moody is America’s irrepressible ambassador of swing, an NEA Jazz Master whose career stretches back to the advent of bebop when he made his recording debut with Dizzy Gillespie in 1946. A muscular tenor saxophonist and pioneering flutist with a ravishing tone, Moody is also a delightfully effective singer whose vocalese version of his jukebox hit “Moody’s Mood For Love” is a bona fide classic. At 85, he’s an ageless jazz legend playing with as much brawn and wit as ever, a masterly showman and improviser who combines a wicked sense of humor with a profound improvisational concept. In an historic pairing, Moody is joined by the indomitable jazz chanteuse Marlena Shaw. The first female vocalist ever signed by the storied Blue Note label, she’s won a new generation of fans through the widespread sampling of her classic tracks by contemporary R&B and hip hop artists looking for an instant infusion of soul. While Shaw has sung everything from R&B and rock to disco and gospel, her rhythmic sophistication and salty blues feeling unmistakably distinguish her as jazz royalty, a title conferred by giants with whom she’s toured and recorded, such as Ray Brown, Benny Carter, and Joe Williams. Tenor saxophonist/vocalist Richard Howell calls the Bay Area home, but he’s been a leading light on the international scene for decades. A riveting improviser who is also a prolific producer and respected educator, he’s worked and recorded with leading figures in rock, pop, blues and jazz, from Etta James to Chaka Khan and Cecil Taylor to Charlie Haden. His outstanding group features drummer E.W. Wainwright, bassist Gary Brown, pianist Fred Harris and Destiny Muhammed, harp and vocals. Howell’s quintet exemplifies the exuberant cultural heritage and spontaneous creativity of jazz. Balancing tradition and innovation, the band explores accessible melodies and grooves while offering spiritual tribute to the great artists who came before.

Caballero and Hosoi on the high-flying MegaRamp By Gabe Meline

2

hristian Hosoi stood atop the three-story structure, staring down the long, narrow wooden descent. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d dropped in on hundreds of ramps in his life, but this time, on this ramp, was different. His heart pounded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the scariest thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done on a skateboard,â&#x20AC;? he says soberly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But once I did it, it went from the scariest moment in my life to the funnest day of my life.â&#x20AC;? Hosoi and fellow legend Steve Caballero have seen plenty of changes in skateboarding. The most recent is daredevil pro skater Danny Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enormous contribution, the MegaRamp, and the high-speed maneuvers executed on the 63-foot tall, 293-foot long structure boasting a 27-foot quarterpipe. Both Hosoi and Caballero will be judging and riding demos at the Mini-MegaRamp EcoCup skate contest June 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;14 at the Harmony Festival, a contest with a $40,000 purse. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miniâ&#x20AC;? fool you; the suckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge. Skaters blaze down a three-story drop-in, fly over a 20-foot gap and hit an 18-foot quarter pipe at full speed. Hosoi and Caballero first tried it earlier this year, and both describe it as a combination of horror and elation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From how high it is, it looks really skinny,â&#x20AC;? Caballero says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And once you go down, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta jump the gap. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no turning back.â&#x20AC;? Yes, the thrill is huge. So is the danger. In 2007, pro skater Jake Brown bailed out of a 540-degree McTwist on the MegaRamp during the X-Games and fell 45 feet onto the hard ground. Hosoi was there as a judge, and immediately got on his knees to pray that Brown would survive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really, we all thought he died,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he ended up standing up and walking off and holding his hands up, I was like, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. For the people

there, it was so death-defying. Seeing him walking off the ramp blew everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind.â&#x20AC;? Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his slam is considered the worst wipeout in skateboarding historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is alive and well and will perform at the Eco-Cup in Santa Rosa, as will fellow pros Bob Burnquist, Omar Hassan, Pierre Luc Gagnon, Lincoln Ueda, Andy MacDonald and Adam Taylor. The MegaRamp and its mini sibling have their share of critics who denigrate the offshoot phenomenon as being too gimmicky and not â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? skateboarding. Their squawking increased when Way used the MegaRamp to famously jump the Great Wall of China in 2005, a trick right out of the Evel Knievel handbook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people who are pretty much gonna hate on anything they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand,â&#x20AC;? Caballero says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As for me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another avenue to be creative and push skateboarding to the next level. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what skateboarders are always trying to do and achieve. With the MegaRamp, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done. So for anybody to bag on it and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not skateboarding,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty ignorant towards whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on.â&#x20AC;? Hosoi agrees, and stresses that the MegaRamp canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fully experienced by watching online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that you have to see live,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your heart stops, and you really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just amazed by it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what people wantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;people are looking to be amazed. That type of energy and excitement keeps people alive. People tend to wanna go out and live a little. It pushes them to try hard as well and to really be somebody.â&#x20AC;? The Eco-Cup Mini-MegaRamp Contest and Rail Jam goes down June 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;14 at the Harmony Festival, Sonoma County Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. Free with $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$40 day admission to festival; ages sevenâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;12 only $10. www.harmonyfestival.com.

THE BOHEMIAN



Like skateboarders today, Steve Caballero and Christian Hosoi grew up around skateparks. But back in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, there were scant few of them around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t free, either,â&#x20AC;? explains Caballero. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a real privilege to actually go skate a skatepark,â&#x20AC;? adds Hosoi, whose dad once managed the Marina Del Rey skatepark when Hosoi was only 10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like a dream for us kids, like an amusement park.â&#x20AC;? During the 1980s, insurance issues closed most skateparks, but skating refused to die; from â&#x20AC;&#x2122;85 to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;89, it became more popular than it had ever been. The push to build skateparks resurged, and in 1998, California designated skateboarding a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hazardous recreational activity,â&#x20AC;? virtually eliminating all municipal liability. Skatepark construction exploded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think right now is the best time in skateboarding because of all the different places available,â&#x20AC;? Caballero says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had so many skateparks in the history of skateboarding. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insane. And they keep building them! More and more! Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not stopping!â&#x20AC;? The North Bay is home to some of the best skateparks around; most stay open from dawn to dusk, and most require helmets or pads, although enforcement varies. Healdsburg The Carson Warner Memorial Skatepark features a shallow, 4-foot, Ushaped miniramp with good coping and big, loose transitionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for beginnersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is connected via a spine to 6-foot, clover-style carving bowls. Nearly half the park is taken up by a great street area, with quarter pipes, hips, rails and a large funbox. The parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s layout makes for interesting combinations. 1300 Grove St. Napa This 16-year-old park, small and out-of-date, has a short snake run, an extremely tight bowl with no coping, a metal quarter pipe and a small street area. Yajome and Clinton streets. Novato Sometimes the simpler designs are the best. This park features large, expansive bowls, connected together with smooth concrete, plenty of hips and fast coping. Lots of open space and deep, seven-foot transitions are great for fast runs. With rails, stairsteps and street area. 1200 Hamilton Parkway. Petaluma Its humps, banks, volcano, three- and six-foot bowls and long rails are good for beginners. 900 E. Washington St. (Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skatepark is eclipsed by newer public parks nearby, and by Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ramp Rats, a privately owned indoor park of mostly wooden ramps for BMX and skateboards at 1004 Lakeville St.; $5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15 admission fees.) San Rafael The huge McInnis Skateparkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which cost over $1.6 millionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;features a washboard bowl with various heights of mini halfpipes; a cloverleaf bowl with three small, tight pools; a key-shaped bowl with a volcano-shaped middle; and a nice 7-foot-to11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;foot-deep peanut pool. 350 Smith Ranch Road. Santa Rosa The North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest skateparkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and pro skater Tony Trujilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stomping groundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is still dear to the hearts of old-schoolers. A long snake run that gets deeper and deeper into a large bowl is the main attraction, providing endless combinations with a Zen-like flow; a funbox, stairset, curb and rail are here too. Locals still talk about the day that Tony Hawk stopped in for a session in 1995. 1725 Fulton Road. Sebastopol A gem with a perfect mini bowl; a huge banked street area with large funbox; a deep, hipped halfpipe-style bowl with cradle extension; and a smooth, perfectly transitioned deep pool with vert. In Sebastapudlian fashion, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outfitted with a living-roof tool shed, a flow-form water sculpture, a bio-infiltration area for managing storm water and several community garden plots. Great for all skill levels. Any graffiti, the park closes for a week! 6700 Laguna Park Way. Sonoma This older skatepark has held up over the years, with a shallow bowl connected to a three deeper bowls and numerous banks, quarter pipes, rails, a funbox and a stairset.

stride a giant white stallion, the rider comes charging down the lane at full canter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Allez! Allez!â&#x20AC;? he shouts, spurring the horse on. His long mane of white hair streams behind him, and his mirror-polished armor glints in the sunlight. Sir Guillaume du Perche, better known as Sir William, expertly catches a three-inch golden ring with the tip of his lance while riding by, and smiles at his success. Dismounting from his trusty steed, Rohan, Sir William cuts a dashing figure in his brown linen tunic, tall leather boots and neatly trimmed beard. His transition from mosquito-abatement worker to stately knight is complete. While attending a Renaissance fair a few years ago, county employee William Hamersky was intrigued by a vendor selling swords. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked one up and had the unique sensation that I had done this before,â&#x20AC;? he says. The sword was far more expensive than

he expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put it downâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and ended up buying it.â&#x20AC;? He found a school in San Jose where he studied sword fighting, learning to use the long sword, dagger and rapier. He trained for several years in jousting, skillat-arms games and European martial arts, which include wrestling and hand-to-hand combat, especially important for self-defense and fighting in war. Gradually, William Hamersky became Sir Guillaume du Perche, Sir William for short. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jousting originated in the Middle Ages as practice for warfare,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Skill-atarms games, such as ring spearing, running the quintain, archery and spear throwing, were part of the training.â&#x20AC;? Eventually, tournaments comprising these activities were held, and knights from different countries competed for prizes. The highlight of a tournament was jousting. Initially using only a shield and helmet for protection, two knights would ride toward their opponent, trying to knock him off his horse. Their lances weighed between 10 and 40 pounds, and were 10 to 14 feet long. In addition to being used for war training, jousting was an alternative means for settling disputes. By the 14th century, knights wore full metal armor, often weighing 90 pounds or more. The weight of man, armor and weaponry necessitated horses bred for strength and speed. Accordingly, Sir Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steed is a 2,000-pound, 17.3-handshigh Percheron, a French working breed. True to his heritage, Rohan is trained to respond to commands in French. A gentle giant, Rohan has learned to tolerate the noise of the armor and to be comfortable with weapons, such as spears and lances, that extend beyond his head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to build up ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; confidence,â&#x20AC;? Sir William says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about relationshipsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and horse work is one phase.â&#x20AC;? After moving to Sebastopol two years ago, Sir William bought five acres and built a jousting list, a court outfitted with the equipment needed to practice knightly arts on horseback. He exhibits his skills at Renaissance fairs and other outdoor events, but his real passion lies in teaching. He starts students practicing archery and throwing spears while walking, until their competence increases enough to use a shield and lance and work on horseback. A balsa wood tip is used on the lance so that it shatters on contact, avoiding injury. Sir William stresses that safety is paramount. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I teach my students how to safely hold the lance and not drop it,â&#x20AC;? he says. Students also learn to ride without reins because their hands are holding weapons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My students are usually women in their 50s or young boys of 12,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a good horse person, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter your age.â&#x20AC;? Proving Sir Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point, fiftysomething student Diane Warner arrives for her lesson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always doing things that are out of the box,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Renaissance is an era that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always dreamed about, and to actually participate is like a dream come true. Sir William is a great teacher.â&#x20AC;? Contact Sir William and his warhorse, Rohan, for lessons or demonstrations at Full Tilt Farm, 2864 Bloomfield Road, Sebastopol. 707.827.3855.

rom the parking lot of San Quentin State Prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s East Gate complex, visitors have a sweeping view of the coastline that evokes Camelot as much as Quentin. In the distance loom the green, rolling pastures of the coastline, visible over the parapets that crown San Quentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walls; below them, the giant double doors of the prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entranceway dominate its facade. The calm, scenic and politically liberal Marin County of present day seems an odd place for a prison, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had one since 1852, when San Quentin became Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first. Between the East Gate side and the prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighboring complex, West Block, San Quentin covers 432 acres and houses over 5,300 prisoners, though it is designed to hold just over 3,000, making it one of the largest prisons in the United States. Among the buildings that make up the East Gate complex, the tallest one in the very middle is death row, home to Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most notorious convicts and the only place in the state where male inmates are executed. Just across the way from the black, hulking building that houses death row there is a baseball field. At San Quentin, where both baseball and softball are playedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the only California prison to have either, or even a field for that matterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great pastoral game has been placed within metal confines. If the prison is a dark spot on the coastline of Marin, the ball field is a glint within. The prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double doors were propped open on a recent clear, warm Sunday, visiting day, as clergymen and family members of inmates filed in for an hour of

face time with the incarcerated. Among the visitors, too, was our local softball team, the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers, there to play an afternoon game against the San Quentin Giants, an all-prisoner team that is part of San Quentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baseball program dating back to the 1920s. In 1994, the program began allowing games against teams visiting from outside the prison. Though this would be my first trip to San Quentin, our team had its own mini-history there: two games played last year, one won and one lost. Those who had played spoke highly of the experience, although a friend warned me to expect a lot of heckling, along with certain oddities that could be distracting: sunbathers in the outfield, for example, and the occasional rodent. This trip, however, proved to be slightly less frenzied, owing mostly to the fallout from a reported race riot that had transpired days earlier. Every black and Latino inmate had been on an indefinite lockdown since that time, and the recreation yardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population was significantly scaled back. What visitors to San Quentin experience is a tamed-down version of the yard anyway; inmates with any disciplinary history at the prison canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play baseball or softball, nor are they allowed anywhere outside when visitors are present. Although one gregarious inmate passing behind our dugout before the game said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be â&#x20AC;&#x153;heckling like a motherfuckerâ&#x20AC;? after his plea for sunflower seeds went unanswered (such charity is expressly forbidden), his threat proved empty. Even by nonprison standards, the game that ensued was a quiet one. Good-natured smalltalk and sportsmanship dominated the ))

on-field discussion, and spectators who gathered behind the backstop and in certain deep corners of the outfield were, according to teammates whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d played here before, both diminished in number and uncharacteristically restrained. The shirtless umpire, an inmate, called a fair game, drawing only minimal flak from San Quentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things I really like about [the baseball program] is that prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really easy to make real friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you always think somebody wants something from you,â&#x20AC;? said Chris â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stretchâ&#x20AC;? Rich, one of the onlookers behind the backstop. Rich, who pitched in college, has played on the prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baseball team for seven years and is among the approximately 75 percent of its players who are serving life sentences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With baseball, it draws together people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and races,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baseball brings people together. You can take that out into society and make something positive out of that. A lot of people in here committed horrific crimesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be that person.â&#x20AC;? While more than one inmate described the baseball field as a sort of refuge from prison life, to a visitor its place within a larger system is continuously felt. The field is wedged inside the surrounding walls with everything else; its boundaries ill-defined, and parts of the outfield are shared with joggers, loiterers and gamers, who play cards and chess on a table thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affixed to the ground in right-center. There were no sunbathers on this trip, but upright passersby abounded, including an intermittent flock of Canadian geese. Next to the field, a doubles match unfolded on the tennis court, alongside full-court basketball game and a solitary boxer on the punching bag. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a new guy, huh?â&#x20AC;? said the first inmate I approached, and before I ever said a word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You got that look on your face like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at San Quentin.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? This was Key Lam, an outfielder who plays both baseball and softball at the prison. Lam, whose baseball career was cut short when he entered the prison system at age 20, is one of the prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most talented players. On this day, the muscular Lam hit two of the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three out-of-the-park homers (our third baseman hit the other), both opposite field shots that cleared the same bungalow, part of the improvised fence in a park whose design clearly required some imagination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the furthest thing from prison life,â&#x20AC;? Lam said. In the end, Lamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make up for San Quentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing starters, whose absence may have given our team a distinct advantage. While the two games our team played last year were reportedly very close, we would win this contest handily: 27â&#x20AC;&#x201C;15. Although, to be fair, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unofficial score, because the game didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly end. In the bottom of the seventh, which would have been the last inning due to the approaching time limit, the Giants loaded the bases with no outs. The next batter hit a laser that took its first bounce into the ear of our

shortstop, whose blood painted the ground at his position. With their precious time outside the walls winding down, the prisoners collectively decided to call the game, and some went over to check on their bloodied opponent. An ambulance arrived minutes later, unloading technicians who were also inmates (its lowest security level occupants, who stay not inside the prison but in parts of San Quentin Village); our player was cleaned up, bandaged and transported to the parking lot, where the rest of us reunited with him. As the ambulance drove off, we were left with about 10 minutes to mingle. Prison life has never had a very good reputation, and a couple hours of baseball a week wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to change that too much. But the players with whom I spoke were overflowing with gratitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel fortunate to have you guys come in and playâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for taking time out of your day on a Sunday afternoon, when you could be doing a lot better things,â&#x20AC;? said Ron Dalton, although nothing could have been further from the truth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without you guys coming in here, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the ability to play.â&#x20AC;? Dalton, the Giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hefty first baseman and clean-up hitter, had good words for the prison generally. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been diagnosed with stage three lymphoma while serving time at Solano State Prison, where the medical help was shoddy. He got a transfer to San Quentin some months after the diagnosis and underwent chemotherapy there, noting that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now in his fifth year of â&#x20AC;&#x153;full remission.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get the kind of medical attention [at other prisons] that I got here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;San Quentin saved my life.â&#x20AC;? Dalton (who is serving a sentence of 14 years to life but has a parole hearing later this year, about which he was optimistic) said he was on the verge of becoming certified as a drug and alcohol counselor, and that various programs at San Quentin, including a college degree program (the only one in the California prison system), have helped him make changes, as have Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous, group counseling and baseball. All of it, he said, added up to the hope that redemption is attainable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I want to do is make my past as fully right as possible,â&#x20AC;? Dalton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given back to the community what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken. This is part of my path.â&#x20AC;? For Dalton and others, it seemed, the experience of playing was humanizing. Inmates repeatedly talked about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;honorâ&#x20AC;? (as one put it) of interacting with the outside world, for which the games provided a setting that was itself evocative of the world outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a lot of other [prisons], and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let nobody come near you. People up here seem to care about you,â&#x20AC;? said player Shawn Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like medicine,â&#x20AC;? added Pat Aronson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You come out here and feel better. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dregs of societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the way they look at us. For people to come in here and to be treated with respect, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honor.â&#x20AC;? Of course, the reprieve is short-lived. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got about an hour to shower and get cleaned up,â&#x20AC;? said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junkyard Broadway,â&#x20AC;? as he and the other players packed up their gear following the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then, back to our cells.â&#x20AC;?

ad your fill of golf, softball, 10Ks and bike racing? Indeed, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re almost a decade into the 21st century, and even the most extreme sports are beginning to feel a little mossy. So how about some new sporting challenges aimed at taking advantage of the quirks, characteristics and attributes unique to our own North Bay? After all, true Bohos are, by definition, a superior, innovative and daredevil lot. So hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short compendium of sports designed specifically for these North Bay environs. Abaleavealone Diving Simple rules, no risk of death. Egg White Skid Ever run like hell, sliding as far as could be on solid ice or down a retro â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s Slip â&#x20AC;&#x2122;N Slide? The Egg White Skid simply substitutes Chickaluma organic grain-fed,

free-range, cage-free egg whites for ice or running water. Find-the-Republican Kinda like hide-andseek, with a twist. Bleeding heart, investigative and search-and-rescue teams compete, racing throughout the North Bay attempting to locate a living, breathing Republican. Once one is found, lucky team members must convince said person to admit to his or her party affiliation. First team to return to the starting point with a signed affidavit attesting to Republican Party membership wins tickets to Cincinnatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creation Museum and a security-guided tour of Diebold Corporate headquarters in Canton, Ohio. Find-theRepublican is an exhaustively challenging game that can be played year-round, the exception being those three weeks each midsummer when thousands of Grand Old Partiers invade the Russian River, making this game just too damn easy. Hoeup-Down Contestants hoe 100-yard rows of Burbank potatoes, all while clogging to live Cloverdale fiddlers. First to complete his row is spared the embarrassment of accepting any prize. SebastaBall Also known as biodynamic baseball. Gravenstein apples sub for hardballs. Each team fields a pitcher, a catcher and as many batters as it so chooses. Runs are scored each time a batter makes contact, thus eliminating both fielding and base running. Following nine innings of play, all resultant debris gets scooped up and pressed into post game refreshments. Sewering A noncompetitive sport for spelunkers lacking nearby natural cave options. Trust Fund Triathlon An especially popular Marin County event. First, select lucky spermers pit Beemers, Jags and Ferraris in the Daimler Demolition Derby. Next, contestants navigate their chauffeurs to a favored jeweler, rare collectables dealer, preciously nuanced boutique or ponzi broker in order to purchase what judges determine to be the single most egregious waste of $1 million. The triathlonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final leg has entrants cutting rugs and sipping 1979 Krug Clos du Mesnil at a black-tie marathon affair at Belvedereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s San Francisco Yacht Club. The grand prize winner is assigned an actual purpose in life, along with the handy pamphlet â&#x20AC;&#x153;101 Pithy Responses to the Question: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s That You Do for a Living?â&#x20AC;? Way-Far-Out Hippie Toss Friends gather around a stout psychedelic blanket on any North Coast beach. Volunteer hippie reclines in the center of a blanket. Following a group meditation and sacramental ingestations, friends â&#x20AC;&#x153;omâ&#x20AC;? loudly, laugh, chortle and pitch the volunteer stoner up toward the heavens. Everyone wins at this game, as officiated by Peter Coyote and judged by Wavy Gravy. A few other up-and-coming neo-Bohemian sports include fog chasing, surf ball, vegetable sprinting, E-walking, tug-of-class-war, tourist trapping, salmon spotting and the unusual and oft forgotten sport of quake surfing. And finally, no list of neo-Bohemian sporting opportunities would be complete without giving a nod to our regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature competitive event, SoNaMaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annual Oyster Slog, in which challengers slog through an Olympic-sized pool brimful of shucked Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay oysters. First contestant to reach the far end gets to shower first.

Parkour Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen the first 20 minutes of Casino Royale has seen Parkourâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or, at least, the Hollywood version of Parkour. Like the love child of Nadia Comaneci and Chuck Norris, Parkour is a highly skilled, gymnastic practice of navigating urban obstacles, involving jumps, flips, limber maneuvers and a whole lot of upper-body strength. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also catching on in the Bay Area like wildfire, with two organizations, San Francisco Parkour and Bay Area Parkour, offering training sessions and monthly â&#x20AC;&#x153;jams.â&#x20AC;? But what is Parkour? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two different angles on it,â&#x20AC;? explains Andres de la Rosa, a Parkour trainer at Crossfit Marin gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the most common definitions is traveling through your environment in the most efficient way possible, from point A to point B, using just the powers of the human body. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a way of selfexpression, a philosophy on being strong and developing swiftness and agility and coordination through movement.â&#x20AC;? Those practicing Parkour, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;freerunning,â&#x20AC;? will see a set of stairs and think: why walk down them when I can drop over the banister onto the ground

below? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a concrete wall and think, why walk around it when I can run up its face and vault over it? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a gap between rooftops and think, why use the sidewalk when I can make the jump and land with a roll? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important, de la Rosa stresses, is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t also see an onlooker and think, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna show off by trying something crazy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parkour can be dangerous if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done too rationally without using enough patience and good judgment,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet if you do the progressions directly and take your time, and weigh the risks and the rewards so you can steadily improve without getting injured, then it can be done safely and it can be very rewarding. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selfconfidence that develops, there are ways of meeting challenges. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a step-bystep methodology of not just overcoming obstacles that are physical but also of tackling problems and overcoming obstacles that present themselves in your own life.â&#x20AC;? Santa Rosa Parkour enthusiast Brett Robert has watched the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly jams attract more and more participants in the last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parkour is growing because it requires no equipment, is incredibly fun and because the community around it is so positive and open,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friends that I train with are incredible athletes and nice people. The art traces its history to France in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, where its founders were inf luenced by French kinesiologist Georges Hebert and his invocation â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ĂŞtre fort pour ĂŞtre utile,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which translates as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;be strong in order to be useful.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Parkour isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just for teens and young adults; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 50-year-old Parkour enthusiast at Crossfit Marin whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mastered large jumps and wall flips, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a SWAT officer in his 30s from the East Bay who uses Parkour in real-life applications. Those interested in Parkour can audit a training class for free on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday at Crossfit Marin, 412 Tamal Plaza, Corte Madera. 415.250.9710.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;G.M.

Kiteboarding Imagine being at the beach in Northern California. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say Dillon Beach in Marin, or Salmon Creek in Sonoma County. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no fog, just a steady on-shore breeze blowing 15 knots or more. The sun feels warm, the water a chilling 48 degrees, home to sneaker waves and great white sharks. Now envision flying a kite, a two-handed kite with two 75- to 100-foot lines attached to each end of a steering bar. A harness aids stability and control, and prevents a person from flying away, because this kite is a little different from the colorful octopi and dragons in the sky nearby. This kite has 15 to 60 feet of surface area, large enough to tow a car, let alone a human being. Muster up the upper-body strength and hold tight to the bar as a bystander down the beach launches the kite for you. Maintain control as the wind catches and fills it like a sail. Add a small surfboard, but keep it manageable. Change it to a kiteboard and add

some waves. Any size will do. Now, keeping control of the kite, bend over and pick up the board which is strategically placed close by, walk into the water, set the kiteboard down, and quickly! Kiteboarding requires intense concentration to do two things well simultaneously but independentlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;riding a board and flying a kiteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both powered by forces that can easily get out of control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people can learn how to kiteboard without preliminary experience surfing or windsurfing,â&#x20AC;? says Jeff Broffman, a local physician and kiter of five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sport where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to take lessons to get started so there are no critical errors. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been surfing almost 45 years, but it took six to 12 months for me to feel relatively adept on a kiteboard because coastal conditions vary so much around here.â&#x20AC;? The network of North Bay kiteboarders has grown from just three to some 25 athletes over the last five years. But unlike surfers, kiteboarders roam over a huge area of the ocean where they can avoid crowds. And there are other advantages, according to Broffman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One has a greater sense of freedom,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like waterskiing or wakeboarding behind a boat, but without the boat. People can go wherever they want to. Kiters can go faster than windsurfers. The kite is more adaptable and the equipment is much lighter. You can fly 30 feet in the air and do flips. And lastly,â&#x20AC;? he laughs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it puts less strain on oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging body.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.D.

Wingsuit Flying We see ourselves as omnipotent, but the one thing we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do is throw our bodies into the air and stay there. From Icarus to Richard Branson, we keep trying to attain what comes so easily to our feathered friends. In the 1930s, â&#x20AC;&#x153;birdmenâ&#x20AC;? tried to soar in the sky with wings made of whale bone and canvas; 72 of the 75 daredevils fatally crashed. Nowadays, these wings are made from nylon, and the adrenaline junkies who wear them are sometimes called â&#x20AC;&#x153;flying squirrels.â&#x20AC;? As these thrill-seekers jump off cliffs or out of planes with their arms and legs spread like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a belly flop, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see the resemblance to an awkward squirrel careening through the trees. The technical name for the sport is â&#x20AC;&#x153;wingsuit flyingâ&#x20AC;? and it is a variation of BASE jumping, an extreme sport involving jumping from buildings or cliffs with a parachute strapped on. Wingsuits, nylon body gear with wings sewn on the arms and between the lower legs, are worn with parachute equipment. Wingsuits give the effect of flying with a slow freefall of 30 mph and a horizontal soar of 75 mph. Flyers can do aerial maneuvers in the sky until they pull the parachute. To watch the wingsuiters skim the sides of mountains or float serenely over green pastures gives one a sense of the absolute freedom and rush of excitement they must feel. Youtube features people flying so close to the strikingly majestic Alps that they could grab a blade of grass, and the shots of wingsuiters circling the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil can make your stomach drop. Obviously, this sport isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the weak of

heart, and takes practice. Flyers are supposed to have 200 skydiving jumps under their belt before they fly a wingsuit for the first time. Even though wingsuit flying is much safer than what the birdmen killed themselves for in the 1930s, there is still huge risk involved. People still make fatal mistakes, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes it an extreme sport. People wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it if it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get their heart pounding and their palms sweating. Perhaps it is something ingrained in our DNA.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;H.S.

Underwater Hockey Their sleek, powerful bodies swim quickly through the turquoise twilight, fins cutting and thrashing the water as they dive for their elusive prey. Bubbles froth as heads break the surface, and then disappear again, seeking to hit their target. The swarm swims with a chaotic focus until a dulled thunk! is heard, and all action slows to a halt. Although this scene might resemble a shark feeding frenzy to the uninformed, what onlookers are actually witnessing is an intensely physical game of underwater hockey. A breath-holding sport developed in England in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s by divers who wanted to stay in shape during the winter off-season, UWH is now played by a couple dozen swimmers at Ives Pool in Sebastopol. Twice a week, a group ranging in age from their 20s to 50s gather for an excellent workout that improves their wind and stamina, and will see them through the next abalone season. Currently, all the players are men, and some members have played on the national and U.S. world teams. There are no tryouts. Anyone can play regardless of sex, age, conditioning or skill level, but a player should know how to swim! The black or white hockey stick, which is made of wood or heavy plastic, is about a foot long, and resembles a plastic cooking spatula that has melted out of shape, leaving a short, nubby foot that makes contact with the puck. The lead puck, covered in brightly colored, super-smooth plastic for easy sliding on the pool floor weighs a kilo (2.2 pounds). The edges have a tackier plastic applied so the stick has a little grip. The full length of the pool is used to play, with goals at each end. Brian Tucker, a local UWH group organizer, has been playing since his teens and has coached the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s USA Underwater Hockey team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an anaerobic sportâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t breathe,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to control your breath to handle the puck.â&#x20AC;? Positions are dynamic and goalies are nonexistent. Passes range from three to six feet, again, not so easy considering the resistance the water adds to movement. Shots at the upper chest and head are forbidden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of us who have been playing a long time have had stitches once or twice from being kicked or hit in the head by the puck,â&#x20AC;? Tucker chuckles. His tone grows more serious as he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nationwide, there have been three heart attacks and no drownings. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good record for a sport thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around almost 60 years.â&#x20AC;? Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Ives Pool, 7400 Willow St., Sebastopol. 707.823.2251 or 707.579.1870.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.D.

Summer movie pairings split good ideas By Richard von Busack

C

he summer movie market includes about 10 sequels. It would be hard labor to do the exact math, but two of them represent the battle of the dieoffs: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Final Destination: Death Tripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;H2â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Halloween 2, Aug. 28). The conjunction is all part of 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peculiar doppelgänger effect. First, we had Liev Schreiber re-creating his part as the bloodthirsty brother from Defiance in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;X-Men Origins: Wolverine.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then we were served a double order of Spocks in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Star Trekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (both of which are summer movies, even if they opened weeks in advance of June 21 or even the traditional Memorial Day weekend, all part of summerseason creep in the industry). If we were applying one of those irritating Facebook polls to this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films, it would answer the question â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Shakespeare play are you?â&#x20AC;? with â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of those lesser mistaken-identity comedies with twins.â&#x20AC;? Two toy-related movies seem to be doubles. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 7) tries to sell strangely Transformer-like super soldiers in a market already anchored by the loftily titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Transformers: Revenge of the Fallenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 24). This spot is as good a place as any to mention â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Terminator Salvationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (May 21), directed by McG, who has never made a good film in his life. Consider Terminator Salvation mentioned. Will Ferrell doubles up twice. He has a small part in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 14) as a salesmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salesman, and he also stars in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Land of the Lostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 5), the first of what threatens to become an inevitable chain of Sid and Marty Krofft cinematizations. Even better than a double is a triple helping of wacky dinosaurs: the aforementioned Land of the Lost as well as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 1) and the dino skeleton in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (May 22).

THE BOHEMIAN



â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Time Travelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 14) has steadily resisted adaptation, but now Audrey Niffeneggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story is ready to go. Eric Bana plays the beaming-out, unstuck-in-time husband, Rachel McAdams is the left-behind wife, and the entirety will, we hope, be more like Portrait of Jennie than a bad episode of Time Tunnel. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;(500) Days of Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 17) is also a story of random-access romance, with Zooey Deschanel teamed up with one of the best young actors around, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Under Judd Apatowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction, Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen play bosom buddies in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Funny Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 31) in what looks like a yuksterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of Brianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Song, with Sandler dying offstage while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killing onstage. On a more deliberately serious note, repeat offender Nick Cassavetesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 26) has him topping his heart-transplant-on-mysleeve movie John Q. Sofia Vassilieva, in bald leukemia wig, has a sister (Abigail Breslin) who gets literally and physically sick of being her sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bone-marrow donor. Even Nora Ephronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Julie & Juliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 7) teams Meryl Streepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Julia Child with a reporter (Amy Adams) who has an obsession with the renowned chef. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Life in Ruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 5), the comeback vehicle for Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), flaunts Greek scenery in a story of a professor turned tour guide. Unfortunately, the Hawaiian tour guides in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Perfect Getawayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 14) arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t self-deprecating women of a certain age but, rather, serial killers. The one truly hard-to-resist double order this summer is a one-two punch of krautbashing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BrĂźnoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 10) has Sacha Baron Cohen as a faunlike and flamboyant Austrian fashion reporter, romping through the world in his sportswear. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Inglourious Basterdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 21), designed to drive proofreaders mad, might just be funnier in coming-attraction form than it will be as a whole movie. But this long-promised piece of Quentin Tarantino Dirty Dozen pastiche looks good/ridiculous. As a Southern commanding officer in the Big

War, Brad Pitt demands 100 Nazi scalps each from each and every one of his commandos. And the film includes that scene every World War II movie needs but usually doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have: Hitler flipping out and screaming, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nein! Nein!â&#x20AC;? as he receives news of the Yank killsquadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rampage. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Princeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 15) promises the usual magic, spells and private-school mischief, with Jim Broadbent as Horace Slughorn. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 12) is Tony Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retake on a subwayheist movie of the grimy 1970s. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Public Enemiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 1) is Michael Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) vs. Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) gangster movie. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shortsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 7) is a Robert Rodriguez fantasy about the transformation of a boring Black Falls, Texas, town by a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imagination. It is indebted maybe to Jerome Bixby Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short story â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Good Life,â&#x20AC;? only this time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be cute instead of horrifying. The new Woody Allen film, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatever Worksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 19), has an indistinct title, just like his career worst Anything Else. Still, Larry David shows up as Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrogate curmudgeon. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Hurt Lockerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 10) is Kathryn Bigelowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study of the Iraq War bomb-disposal units. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All Good Thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 24) features Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst in a detective story by Andrew Jarecki (Capturing the Friedmans). Chris Columbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I Love You, Beth Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 10) is a teen comedy about a class valedictorianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s date with the hottest girl in school (Hayden Panettiere). â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They Came from Upstairsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 31) was once titled Aliens in the Attic, which says it all. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;District 9,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; an expansion of the short story â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alive in Joburg,â&#x20AC;? is the South Africanâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;set smart version of Alien Nation (Aug. 14). Among the animated features, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;G-Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 24) presents a team of guinea-pig secret agents, but the previews look like an unsettling mix of early aughties slang (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off the hook!â&#x20AC;?) with reference to 1960s secret-agent movies. Expect your kid, if you have one, to ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dad, what does â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the free worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mean?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x153; Far more soulful is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ponyoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 14), Pixarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Lasseter bringing in the English version of Hiyao Miyazakiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ponyo on the Cliff with the story of a humanoid goldfish. Ever since reading John Douganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book The Who Sell Out, I have been amazed that no one has made a movie about Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mid1960s bout with pirate radio. Until now. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Boat That Rockedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 28) stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as a laid-back yank DJ; Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral) directs. Like Radio London itself, it has a highly successful sound. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 7) is by the Dardennes brothers, the tremendous Belgian neorealists who made The Son and Rosetta. Surrounded by a summer chock-full of robots blowing up, the Dardennesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; moral seriousness and intelligence are only going to look better. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Proposalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 19) has a Meet the Parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style outline, but Sandra Bullockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timing looks sharper than in her last few outings; also, Ryan Reynolds seems to be picking up his cues well in this screwball comedy about a green-card marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Imagine Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 12) has Eddie Murphy rebranding himself as kid-friendly (ketchup on the pancakesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;precious!). The NoĂŤl Cowardâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based farrago â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Easy Virtueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (May 29) looks like that bad little theater comedy you suddenly find yourself in, with people too big and old to move, sitting between you and the exit.

Just Like Magic

Eight-String Wonder

Ă&#x20AC; la FlambĂŠ

Blues Broads

Not content to stay within their viticultural environs after last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover story, the Napa trio Body or Brain bring their highkicking, energetic indie pop over the hill for Sonoma County to see what all the Napa fuss is about. They bring along with them Serf and James, a falsetto-driven group strong on acoustic jangle and funky backbeat, which proves that Napa isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all distortion and noise. Of note also is Jonny Andrew, a 19-year-old songwriter who performs his romantic reassurances under the name hellotherelittleone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woot! Liz and Me Are Space Piratesâ&#x20AC;? is the name of one of his songs, and he already has one of the best EP cover shots of the year. With Decent Criminal and Go Time, check out a slew of new bands on Friday, May 22, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 E. Washington St., Petaluma. 8pm. $8. 707.762.3565.

It seems like just yesterday when record-store sections for Charlie Hunter only had a few Blue Note albums. The Berkeley guitar phenomenon has over two dozen albums out now, becoming more prolific as the years roll by. His latest, Baboon Strength, is the first that Hunter has selfreleased, and it has a freedom of melodic spirit separate from jazzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s esotericaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a song dedicated to Karen Carpenter. Hunter hits the North Bay twice in the upcoming week: on Thursday, May 21, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre (142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 415.383.9600), and on Sunday, May 24, at the Hopmonk Tavern (230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8:30pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 707.829.7300).

While firefighters spend their time on the clock putting out f lames, this weekend brings two separate events involving firefighters making things hot, hot, hotâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and keeping them glowing for hours on end with community barbecues. In Jenner, the local volunteer firefighters go head to head in an all-out chili cook-off and salsa contest, complete with barbecued oysters, local brews, a dunk tank and more on Sunday, May 24, at the Jenner Community Center (10398 Hwy. 1, Jenner. Noon. Freeâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; $10. 707.865.2771). In Marin, the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department hosts its annual beach barbecue with dancing, music, a raff le, merchandise and tons of juicy, hot, grilled meat. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be checking coolers, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to sneak in booze; alcohol will be for sale at the event on Sunday, May 24, at Muir Beach (Near Coastal Trail, Marin. 12pm. $20 per car. 415.384.0683).

Summertime swelter meets sassy belters when an all-star lineup of blues women take the outdoor lawn stage for a backyard barbecue this weekend. From her early years in Mother Earth up to her recent solo work, Tracy Nelson is a force to be reckoned with, and no one is likely to forget the deep roots that run in Carlene Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood as the descendant of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous country-music family. Dorothy Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s star turn in the Edwin Hawkins Singersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh Happy Dayâ&#x20AC;? may have been the Texas singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-known moment, although 1971â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seductive funk killer â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rainâ&#x20AC;? is probably the hottest thing sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever recorded, and Annie Sampson and Angela Strehli round out the supergroup. Dave Gonzalezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stone River Boys open while the horseshoe pits clang away on Sunday, May 24, at Rancho Nicasio. Town Square, Nicasio. 4pm. $20. 415.662.2219.

Getting older with Joe Cocker moment of clarity hit me this week. While putting my thoughts together for this pick, a couple of incidents stopped me in my tracks. I had just put a movie in my DVD player and was sitting back with a box of Junior Mints when a tooth fell out of my head! Popped right out. The whole thing, roots and all. It was a molar, and it was already dead as I had a root canal 20 years ago, so there was no blood, no painâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but still! I am at a certain age (my friend Roy calls us the Sonic Boomers) where things begin to go south. I then recalled that the ďŹ rst time I saw Joe Cocker perform. It was 40 years ago! How could that be? I was just a pup, in early high school, and my friends and I arrived at the Kansas City Memorial Auditorium on a snowy December evening for a great triple bill: Fleetwood Mac (the original band, with Peter Green) was the opener, Jethro Tull up next and rounding out the marquee, Cocker. Because of the weather, and it being a school night so close to Christmas, the crowd was small. In fact, the emcee invited all of us in the balcony to come down to the front of the house to ďŹ ll it up. We had just settled into our sweet new seats when the acid kicked in. The sonic beats of Fleetwood Mac had heavy emphasis on the rhythm section, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull dressed like a resident of Sherwood Forest, swirling across the stage, the sound of his ďŹ&#x201A;ute bouncing off the walls around us. And then there was Cocker. A white man with a voice like Ray Charles, his face grimacing to reach every note, his body writhing, not in rhythm with the music, but to its own almost spastic glory. From Woodstock to Mad Dogs and Englishmen (one of the best live albums of all time), Joe is still out there getting it done. As am I. Getting old can be a bitch, but it beats the alternative. A wonderful array of artists are in town for Sonoma Jazz+, minus the jazz, and a tooth. Cocker performs with Kebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Friday, May 22, at the Field of Dreams, 151 First St. W., Sonoma. 6:30pm. $54â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$104.

The Flatlanders roll three fine songwriters into one band By Bruce Robinson

8

f there was such a thing as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;supergroupâ&#x20AC;? of west Texas singersongwriters, the Flatlanders would have to be it. Between them, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock have written hundreds of songs and released more than 40 albums, often featuring one anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs, among them such modern country classics as Gilmoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dallas,â&#x20AC;? Elyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honky Tonk Masqueradeâ&#x20AC;? and Hancockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;West Texas Waltz.â&#x20AC;? All three hail from Lubbock, where music was a common bond as far back as seventh grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all were affected by everything we were hearing at the timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;things coming in over the horizon on the border radio, all the old blues guys,â&#x20AC;? Hancock recounts thoughtfully by phone from his Texas home near Terlingua. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just opened up really infinite possibilities for music.â&#x20AC;? Their very first recordings, featuring just Gilmore and Ely, were legendarily initiated by Buddy Hollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, but those tapes promptly disappeared. The 1972 debut album from all three Flatlanders fared little better; it was released only as an 8-track tape by a minor southern label, with a limited vinyl pressing in England. (It was eventually reissued on CD in 1990.)

After that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we all kinda lost heart about the music business and all took off on separate paths,â&#x20AC;? Hancock recalls, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we still stayed pretty much in touch.â&#x20AC;? Fast-forward three decades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was around 2000 that the Robert Redford folks got in touch with us through Joe and were wondering if the Flatlanders could do a song for that Horse Whisperer movie,â&#x20AC;? Hancock says. They could, they did, and that was just the beginning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We sat down and wrote three songs and had such a good time doinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it that we got together in another few months and wrote another batch of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, and just kept writinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? Hancock continues, warming to the tale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somewhere along about that same time we did a performance in Central Park in New York. Actually, we were booked in there as three separate acts and we did a little jam session at the end and they called it the big reunion of the Flatlanders,â&#x20AC;? he chuckles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Suddenly, we started getting some calls for pretty good bookings around the country, so we decided to put a tour together.â&#x20AC;? The reception was rapturous, and an album, Now Again, soon followed. A second new recording, Wheels of Fortune, appeared just two years later, in 2004, and the trio has just released their third new team effort, Hills and Valleys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This last album, I think the character of the songs was a pretty deep felt reflection of the times weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going through,â&#x20AC;? Hancock muses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homeland Refugee,â&#x20AC;? the powerful opening track, offers unsentimental scenes of defeated families returning to their roots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joe describes it as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a reverse migration, from California to the dust bowl,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Hancock offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kinda like stepping into somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living conditions, somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all had to come back to the dust bowl from California, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit of ourselves in that song, too. Sometime weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d strike it rich, find gold in them thar hills, and sometimes we had to come back empty-handed.â&#x20AC;? Like most of the Flatlandersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; material, the new songs are the product of a three-way collaboration that remains slightly mysterious even to its participants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bring in rhythms and ideas and things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve collected from our travels and when we get back together. Some people have called it the process of osmosisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it just sort of bubbles through,â&#x20AC;? Hancock marvels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the ways in which you can write songs, I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably tried a pretty good percentage of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em.â&#x20AC;? Regardless of the actual process, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really tryinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to do is uncover those songs, to discover what the songs want to do,â&#x20AC;? he continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always noticed that the real job of the artist is to get out of the way of the art. Of course youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to use what knowledge youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accumulated of the craft, the practical side of puttinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; together songs. But the real thing about the song that comes through is . . .â&#x20AC;? Hancock trails off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a lot of theories about songwriting, and frankly I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe any of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em,â&#x20AC;? he concludes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even the ones Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come up with.â&#x20AC;? The Flatlanders fire up the grill for a Memorial Day backyard barbecue on Monday, May 25, at the Rancho Nicasio, Town Square, Nicasio. 4pm. $32â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. 415.662.2219.
