2>0;5D4;BC745867C With regard to Juliane Poirierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column about Bank of American and coal-fired generators in Peru (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Bank on It,â&#x20AC;? Green Zone, July 29), I would like to suggest that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disgustingly elitist for people who enjoy every possible convenience and who take for granted a cheap, reliable supply of electricity to impose their supposedly enlightened views upon the citizens of one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Like it or not, coal-fired plants are, and will be for some time to come, the least expensive means of generating power. As things presently stand, many of Peruâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poor live entirely without electricity. And large parts of the country are being deforested to provide cooking fuel. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very well for Kyle Thiermann to insist on green electricity in his own backyard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrogant for a cosseted student from one of the wealthiest communities on the planet to demand that the poor of Peru forego low-cost generation of electricity in order to conform to his own preferences.

Perhaps Mr. Thiermann should spend less time surfing and more time living, as I have, among the poorest people of South America. I can assure him that they would welcome any method which would heat and light their homes and relieve them of the necessity to forage for hours each day in order to collect wood and dried grasses to fire their ovens.

that they did not want this coal power plant developed. Further, Kurtzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim is incorrect that coal power is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;least expensive means of generating power.â&#x20AC;? In fact, no economy in the world can presently pay for the external costs associated with coal-fire power plants including, in the case of Los Robles, the destruction of the fishing industry upon which the Chileans presently depend.

:4=:DACI

B0=A0504;

Juliane Poirier responds: I appreciate Mr. Kurtzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns about the lack of electricity available to the poor in Peru and the deforestation caused by foraging for wood fuels. However, I do not agree that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;poorest people of South America,â&#x20AC;? as Mr. Kurtz claims, would â&#x20AC;&#x153;welcome any method which would heat and light their homes.â&#x20AC;? South America is the birthplace of Gaviotas, the first successful sustainable community in the Americas, built without Bank of America loans and without input from the United States. In the video created by Thiermann, Chileans (whose lives would be directly impacted by Los Robles coal power plant) voiced in their native Spanish

F>A:4ABD=8C4 In response to Marty Bennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generation Debtâ&#x20AC;? (Open Mic, July 22), let me begin by saying I support the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to join unions and make it harder for employers to retaliate against employees who choose to exercise their fundamental rights on the job. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keep in mind that the United States is the only industrial country with such a bureaucratic and patently undemocratic process for joining a union. No wonder so few workers join and thus have fewer benefits, lower wages and less voice on the job. However, I would like to add another layer to this important debate. As a young worker and former union organizer, I am aware of the importance of organizing on the job. However, it is historically inaccurate to assert that workers will win their rights through legislation and the goodwill of our elected representatives. We sometimes forget that FDR did not pass proworker legislation out of the kindness of his heart, but because millions of workers were militantly resisting exploitation by going on strike and facing death daily. FDR knew that if he did not allow some concessions, then capitalism would surely fall. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also keep in mind that the biggest gains that workers made came at a time when unions were illegal. It is an unfortunate reality that unions today are not only weak because of undemocratic labor law, but because the undemocratic and authoritarian nature of those very same unions. Too many times have I heard workers complain about their union not listening to them, not fighting for them. Regardless of the future of EFCA, workers in this country will never rise above poverty if they are not strong, conscious and willing to fight.

102:BC>AH Dude. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all methane all the time in these pages, just two quick weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of gaseous wonder. This oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty startling in its innovation, actually.

Rot and manure may become Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest energy source By Alastair Bland

C

he most valuable direct byproduct of a Sonoma County heifer may be milk, but another worthy resource that exits the lower quarters of local dairy cowsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not to mention most other farm animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;goes completely untapped: methane. Now, however, the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) is making plans to build an anaerobic digesting facility at one of several possible locations in Sonoma County to capture the emissions that waft from manure and other decaying organic matter and put it to productive use. Such operations, scarcely present in California, more so in such states as Vermont and already commonplace through much of Europe, consist of silo-like tanks where

rotting waste stews for 10 to 30 days as bacteria break down the organic matter, generating methane as a byproduct. The gas may be piped either directly for onsite use or to generators for transmission of electricity onto the public grid. Greenhouse gas contributions are simultaneously curtailed. According to Cordel Stillman, SCWA capital projects manager, dairies will likely serve as the primary source of feedstock for a county-operated digester system. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy industry of 27,000 cows produces almost 500,000 tons of manure each year, and removing this waste in adherence to state manure-handling laws has proven expensive and even crippling to many small farms. Many have sold their animals to Central Valley farmers or otherwise folded, and whereas 200 dairies

operated in Sonoma County in 1999, just 81 remain.

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hard for small family dairies to survive the regulatory manure-handling laws, and if they can work with us, it may help them be able to stay in Sonoma County,â&#x20AC;? Stillman says. According to Stillman, a single giant digester built at a central location would be ideal for processing manure from multiple sources with feedstock also likely to be trucked in from county food processing facilities as well as wineries, which generate over 43,000 tons of grape waste and expired yeast each year. Possible locations for an anaerobic digester system include the Sonoma Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laguna Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Airport %.

Treatment Plant, the Central Landfill north of Petaluma or at a conveniently located dairy farm yet to be decided upon. Building the structure might cost $1.5 million to $3 million, says Stillman, and $200,000 from a California Energy Commission grant has been secured to help fund construction. The rest of the money will likely derive from the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own future energy sales, says Stillman, who expects a digester to be operating within three years. Though highly undeveloped in the United States, methane harvesting via anaerobic digesters is an old technology. In 19th-century Europe, sewer gas served to light street lamps. In WW II, German tractors ran on methane. Today, Europe leads the world in anaerobic methane production, and in Germany alone, 3,000 facilities have appeared in the past decade. In the United States, meanwhile, only 200 exist. Most such American facilities operate on dairies, several on hog ranches and a handful on beef farms. Mark Moser, agricultural engineer with Resources Conservation Management, a consulting firm hired by the SCWA to help assess the economic viability of a local anaerobic digester, says that the United States experienced a push for anaerobic digesters some 20 years ago before big-business influence on lawmakers erected legal hurdles that effectively prevented small operations from producing their own electricity and selling it back to the grid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only way for most dairies to pay for [onsite digesters] was by producing and selling electricity, so they made laws prohibiting [small private companies] from selling any electricity,â&#x20AC;? Moser explains. The interest in the technology thereafter flickered and largely died, says Moser, and only in recent years has progressive lawmaking lifted the barriers to small-scale electricity production. Nearly any biodegradable material, bar wood, will serve aptly in a digester, and for several years in Eastern Europe, many methane harvesters began utilizing freshly harvested corn as feedstock, resulting in the same problem that has tarnished the reputation of the ethanol industry in America: severe misallocation of land use and edible resources. However, European lawmakers quickly amended electricityproduction incentive policies to prevent any rewards or rebates from going to those who fed human- or animal-grade food to their digesters. Today, most European anaerobic digesters run on inedible waste matter. In Sonoma County, digesters would have a ready supply of waste feedstock, though precisely which cows will provide the manure, which wineries will provide the lees and what other industries will offer their own compostables for a county methane-production factory is not yet known, though Stillman says that Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate, for one, has expressed interest in providing feedstock. Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy herds are almost certain to play a substantial role. County-directed research into wind, wave and other renewable energies, as well as methane, is underway as the SCWA pursues a goal of going carbon neutralâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sequestering as much carbon from the environment as it emitsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by 2050. The water agency currently uses more energy than any other entity in the county, but if its plans carry through, it could become one of the cleanest.

Can we keep our state parks open? By Michele Luna

F

ell, now we know what we face. The governor has cut an additional $6.2 million from the state parks budget, bringing the total to $14.2 million for the 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2010 fiscal year. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count the three furlough days that state park employees are required to take each month and the potential revenue losses with park closures. This is devastating news for our parks statewide. We can expect to see the potential closing of more than a hundred state parks after Labor Day unless local communities can attract financial sponsors to help keep them open. Seasonal and midweek closures will also be considered. The governor has put the responsibility on the people of California to keep our parks open through public-private partnerships. With the economy affecting so many people, we need our parks. Day use attendance is at record-breaking levels, and our campgrounds are full because people are using our parks more than ever. State parks provide an affordable vacation for most Californians. Where will they go to recreate with their families during these trying economic times? Our local rural communities will suffer with the loss of tourism dollars. Russian River District State Parks attract close to 5 million visitors a year. That represents an inf lux of millions of dollars into our local economy. How will struggling local businesses survive? How many more small business owners will be forced to close their doors at the end of summer? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now up to us locally to come up with a strategy to keep Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, Austin Creek State Recreation Area, Sonoma Coast State Park, Fort Ross State Historic Park and Salt Point State Park open in the Russian River District. Funding is needed to keep our facilities open, including the office of the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods and our visitor centers. Our parks need our help

in order to maintain essential services like water, sewage, electricity and trash pickup, to name just a few. Park visitors have suggested fee increases, an idea which we need to be receptive to and ready for. Many of our parks are free for walk-in visitors. We hope that locals who use our parks daily for exercise and to walk their dogs will find a way to give back either by way of a monetary donation or by volunteering their time. Fees benefit the state park system statewide. Donations to the Stewards and volunteer support for our special events, like the Bodega Seafood, Art and Wine Festival and the Old Grove Festival, will directly benefit our local state parks. Either way, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take all of us contributing to keep our parks open. The more life support we can provide, the greater opportunity there will be to reduce the number of parks that will close. If you are someone who thinks you can help bring significant financial support to our parks, please contact me. We will be convening a working group of people to move us forward with this effort as soon as possible. If you are able to contribute even a modest amount, we will put your donations to good use specifically to keep our local parks open. Initially, we see this as a two-year project, after which we are hopeful that we can f loat a successful ballot measure that provides a sustainable funding source for our state park system into the future. The time is now to create a positive legacy for our grandchildren, so they will not lose the chance to visit a state park and learn about the fragile natural and cultural resources that need our stewardship into the future!

With the economy affecting so many people, we need our parks.

5PXa<PaZTcEP[dTb All Good Earthlings party down in Fairfax

By Juliane Poirier

Âş

H

ou wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find us listed on the New York Stock Exchange, nor are we going to open a store in neighborhoods all over the planet.â&#x20AC;? This anticorporate website claim by the Good Earth Natural Foods store in Fairfax can be trusted, since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s managed to remain a neighborhood grocery ever since the Summer of Love. The 40-year anniversary celebration on Aug. 15 marks the success of an organic grocery business that since 1969 has remained planted firmly in the community. Like the planet for which it is named, there is only one. After examining the foundations of a charming food paradise that has refused to replicate itself, my guess is that Good Earth missed the opportunity to achieve world dominanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s- and Starbucks-styleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for a number of reasons, not the least of which was that it had a more important calling: to help create and expand the organic food trade in California. Can a neighborhood grocery store really do that? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look at the store here as the history of the organic-food trade,â&#x20AC;? says owner Mark Squire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen it all.â&#x20AC;? At age 17, Squire started working at the store when it was just a few months old. Five years later, he copurchased the place, which is now an almost exclusively organic food store run under the leadership of four working owners with the assistance of about a hundred employees. But back when Squire was a teen learning the grocery trade in a small Fairfax store, organic food was a freak thing, not even close to popular. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was here before there was organic law,â&#x20AC;? Squire says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there were only a few organic farmers scattered throughout California. When we started, people thought we were crazies, and there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a whole lot of customers for organics. So we immediately went into a dual mission of providing organic foods and educating the public about them.â&#x20AC;? Squire adds humorously, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was young and idealistic and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a whole lot of income.â&#x20AC;? Squireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idealism was grounded in part in Rachel Carsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silent Spring, which had opened the door to a post-pesticide era, still just emerging in the late 1960s and early

1970s. Carson remains a hero to Squire who, believing we need to build a new food system, joined the California Certification of Organic Farmers board in the 1980s and helped shape what would become the organic farming standards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spent a lot of time in rooms debating how long it takes for a strawberry to be considered organic,â&#x20AC;? Squire explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If soil is kept organic for three years and you plant a seed, then what grows from the seed can be accepted as organic. But strawberries are grown from starts. At what point is the strawberry produced from a start considered organic? People mistakenly think that organic standards are straightforward. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the level of detail involved, nor the fact that the standards we set for California were never meant to be static. The process is complex and constantly evolving. Sometimes it was arbitrary where the line was set, but a line had to be drawn.â&#x20AC;? Now that organic foods are a big part of the California scene, Squire might rest on a produce crate and congratulate himself on a job well done. But he claims there is always â&#x20AC;&#x153;another level of work to be done to maintain food purities.â&#x20AC;? This includes stopping the use of genetically modified organisms. Squire serves on the board of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Non-GMO Project, developing a verification system through which manufacturers who eliminate GMOs can get market credit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent the last few years developing the standard for that,â&#x20AC;? Squire says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This October, we plan to roll it out.â&#x20AC;? Next week, he will be rolling out the carpet for guests at his storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40th anniversary party. Will he stay in the business? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty happy doing what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing here,â&#x20AC;? Squire says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be involved in food for as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making a difference.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be involved in food for as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making a difference.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

BTRaTc2^^ZXT<P] Made-to-order cookies satisfy the sweet tooths of those in the know By Jackie Johansen

1

ehind a Sebastopol building, I walk up the plant-lined ramp and knock on a screen door. Glenn Zix steps out of the shadows. There is a warm fatherly smile on his face, and he greets me with an enthusiastic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hello!â&#x20AC;? Immediately, I feel like I am with a family friend. The former businessman is dressed casually in jeans and a comfortable-looking blue shirt; he is relaxed and merrily leads the way into the kitchen. Inside, there are three ovens with a large stainless-steel cooking surface in the middle of the room. Pots and pans hang from the ceiling, and the large windows on the south wall let in pleasant and comfortable light. While Zix bakes original and unique goods, this is no cookie-cutter operation. He sells his cookies on an individual basis. When he receives an order, which can be done either by phone or through his website, he finds a professional kitchen to borrow, bakes in it and meets the customer at an agreed upon location, such as a

coffee shop or a parking lot, with his goodies. Not always a doughman, Zix spent most of his life in the business world as a CFO for a software company. In late 2001, the company was sold, and Zix took the chance to do something new. Per-order sweets may not be the first thing that a software pro might choose, but Zix explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always baked. I would have to give my mother credit for starting me. She is a baker, also known as the fudge queen.â&#x20AC;? He merely followed his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footsteps to the mixing bowl. In order to fine-tune his culinary skills, Zix enrolled in the pastry baking program at Santa Rosa Junior College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to the window at six in the morning,â&#x20AC;? he says, remembering shouting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will you let me in and come bake?!â&#x20AC;? They did. Zixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cookies are innovative and unique. Confections such as lavender mint, mojito with rum chocolate ganache, bay leaf plum tomato, plummed rose geranium, rosemary lemon butters, and blue cheese and walnut cookies are among his creations. Reflecting on his craft, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things come to me, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know from where.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that Zix pays attention. Last summer it was ice cream that interested him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in the East Bay a lot,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a couple ice cream stores, and they have odd ice creams like basil ice cream. While looking up at menu, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gosh, I could bake bay in something.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The tomatoes were so sweet this past year, I dehydrated a bunch of them, so I chopped them up and put them in some butter cream, and it was good.â&#x20AC;? Zix kept playing with ingredients and shared them with friends and family. Eventually, he marketed his cookies locally. He says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first, I sold them at the marketsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Fiesta, Pacificâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I did cookie tastings there, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfying. You just go in, and there are a bunch of cookies and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have personal contact with people, which is really the part that I like.â&#x20AC;? After receiving positive feedback, Zix was encouraged to keep baking and also to look for his niche in the cookie world. He found it. Selling his treats at the farmers market, where his cookies always sell out, and on an individual basis. All of these confections are made with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, &+ THE BOHEMIAN

including chocolate from Guittard Chocolate Company, a San Francisco staple since 1868. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have very, very good chocolateâ&#x20AC;? he says.) The fruit he uses comes from the farmers market when available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have an oatmeal plum cookie. I take plums from the market and I dry them into leather, chop them up and put them into oatmeal cookies, then you get local fruitâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and it is not a raisinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is tart, a really nice combination.â&#x20AC;? His cookies are especially popular around the holidays. When he gets very busy, he has neighborhood kids come help him watch timers and bake, thus getting them involved in the kitchen and away from the television.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My baking is all real high-tech with lots of love in it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Working in a borrowed kitchen is a bit difficult, yet the space allows him to crank out up to 9,000 cookies at a time during the holiday season. However, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, if I get to the place where I can be busier, I will just buy a little space and make it my own.â&#x20AC;? His ideal kitchen, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would be casual, the espresso machine would be out and people could come in and chit-chat.â&#x20AC;? This family and community man takes his baking seriously. All his ingredients are weighed, his equipment is perfectly calibrated, and he has tested his recipes over and over again before settling on the perfect version of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My baking is all real high-tech with lots of love in it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you can taste the difference, so whether I am in a rental kitchen or in my own kitchen, it turns out great.â&#x20AC;? Zix has recently expanded his offerings to pie crusts after a friend encouraged him to sell them. He uses a recipe that he has spent time and care in perfecting using all organic flour, organic vegetable shortening and local butter. All his shells are hand-rolled and, like his cookies, are made to order. Zix reflects on who he was as a business man and who he is now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baking is a way for me to grow parts of myself that I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the chance to do,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People see a certain side of ourselves and others do not, so it is neat to bring other parts of my personality out.â&#x20AC;? Zix smiles widely and hands me a white box. In it is a selection of beautiful cookies delicately wrapped in clear plastic with handwritten gold labels saying what kind they are. He says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baking for people is the part that I really enjoy.â&#x20AC;?

F8=48= 2>=C4GC he vibrant redwood and Pinot Gris greens of the Russian River Valley are the embodiment of health and vitality of the wine country. From this land come rich Burgundies, Pinots and crisp Chardonnays. It is the environment and the care of the land that makes these wines possible, and it is the winemakers and their personalities that make them special.

The 14th annual Wine to Glass weekend takes place Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Aug. 14â&#x20AC;&#x201C;16, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where great food, vintners, cyclists, come together to share real-life experience,â&#x20AC;? says Lee Hodo of the Russian River Valley Winegrowers. This is the opportunity to connect to this beautiful place we call home and learn how wine is made, about the earth it comes from and the people who develop it. Each year, approximately 900 people attend this event, picking and choosing how they want to participate. Among numerous other activities, on Friday there is the chance to cycle through the valley with Lee Martinelli Jr. and Dan GoldďŹ eld of Martinelli and Dutton-GoldďŹ eld wineries; on Saturday, kayak down the Russian River while learning how the river and fog affects grapes. Later in the evening, the Sip â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cinema event at MacMurray Ranch takes place where Kate MacMurray, daughter of actor Fred MacMurray, discusses her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection to wine and cinema while opening up her doors of the ranch for a personal tour and tasting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a private, unique and intimate opportunity,â&#x20AC;? says Gallo winery rep Kelly Conrad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus, the view of the valley is great.â&#x20AC;? Saturday is the Hog in Fog event, where the vibe aims for everyone to be family. This is the time to relax and make new friends. Over 50 wines will be poured while growers are at the grill serving up pulled pork, tri-tip, sides and apple pie, putting a friendly and familiar face on our neighborhood winemakers that could not be achieved from a casual tour. On Sunday, the wine weekend overlaps with the Sonoma County Air Show where tasting will be held as planes whiz overhead and while salt expert Kristopher Schalwitz of Dean & DeLuca gives a presentation on the distinct ďŹ&#x201A;avors of artisan salts and how they can be paired with wines and food. The slogan of the Russian River Valley Winegrowersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Grape to Glass Weekend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live Like a Local,â&#x20AC;? is exactly what these wine-ďŹ lled days are all about. The weekend is a reminder that wine, as Hodo says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;begins in the dirt.â&#x20AC;? Grape to Glass ďŹ&#x201A;ows Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Aug. 14â&#x20AC;&#x201C;16, throughout the Russian River Valley. $35â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$535. 707.521.2535.

;>20E>A4BADB f youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever bitten into an heirloom tomato purchased at a roadside farm stand, picked not too long before that, you know that eating the pale, plasticwrapped varietals at the megamart just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same. Now, thanks to the Sonoma County GoLocal Cooperative, you can gobble up that tomato like an apple and earn points at the same time.

I

As part of the month-long Eat Local Challenge promoting the bounty of Sonoma County and the beneďŹ ts of eating locally, the GoLocal Cooperative invites community members to sign up on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website to pledge to eat locally for the month of August. Every time participants report that they buy produce at local farmers market, eat at a locally owned restaurant, plant a garden or even read about food issues, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get points.

8]ZoE^ZggZ

According to Cooperative events coordinator Julie Montgomery, the point system is a means of providing a structure for participants to change their habits. Though there are no prizes for the highest point winner, Montgomery says that the results of eating locally itself produces huge rewards.

To further its educational mission and provide another venue for point seekers, the GoLocal Cooperative is teaming up with county restaurants to hold screenings of, you guessed it, food ďŹ lms. On Aug. 17, Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bistro 29 serves a three-course meal as well as a chilling look at genetically modiďŹ ed produce in the documentary The Future of Food ($40). On Aug. 19, the Union Hotel in Santa Rosa will present Fresh, a look at new ways to feed communities, and hearty Italian family-style platters ($20). Another food doc and ďŹ&#x201A;avorful feast will greet guests at Sassafras on Aug. 22 when The Real Dirt on Farmer John is paired with local modern American cuisine ($35).

C7><0B 64>A64 4BC0C4B he story so far: When Russian River Pinot pioneer Davis Bynum hung up the hose clamp for the last time and retired, he sold his eponymous wine brand to the Kleins, owners of Rodney Strong, leaving the actual, bricks-and-mortar estate to be acquired by the Bakers, formerly of Toronto. Both parties vowed to continue the winemakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40-year legacy, yet this still begs the question: Who is Thomas George? The wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thirty-something president, yet to make a name for himself in these parts, named the enterprise in honor of his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given names.

Meanwhile, back at the tasting room: If the nose is redolent of fresh varnish, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look for it on the aroma wheelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the wine. The gutted and revamped facility is still in the throes of construction. The winding, treeshaded drive up to the winery is quaint and packed with contractorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; trucks. Caves were being ground out of the shale hillside, concrete mixed, bottles clanked down the bottling line, while inside the tasting room, the din grew louder. Now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on the record as saying that Monday is the kick-back, relaxed localsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; day on the tasting trail, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unsurprising that the very next time I go out, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;l different. The attractive space features a long, stained concrete bar, video screens ďŹ&#x201A;ashing vineyard views in brilliant RGB, and unfortunate acoustics. My cohort, on a rosĂŠ kick, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but note another patronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booming approval of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rich, fruityâ&#x20AC;? rosĂŠ. The unlikely cuvĂŠe of loose juice from the bottom of the picking bins was nice enough, but we did not, so to speak, echo his assessment. Our host, perfunctory but professional, could have used some help behind the bar. Although served ice-cold, the 2007 Russian River Valley Chardonnay ($32) showed a typical nose of popcorn with real butter, slices of baked apple and pineapple, and stayed lively in the mouth with moderate acidity. The 2007 RRV Pinot Noir ($38) showed candy-coated forest ďŹ&#x201A;oor and black cherries roasted on thyme sprigs, coffee and marshmallow; cherry-brambleberry ďŹ&#x201A;avors lingered on a long, sweet ďŹ nish. With aromas of cocoa, coffee and toast, the lush, soft, atypical 2007 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel ($34) lubricated the palate with glycerin and juicy, chewy cherries, topped with chocolate, raspberry and a note of jalapeĂąo jelly. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009. For a peek at the good works done and things to come, try visiting on a weekend. Or for the real action, try the middle of crush.

ATSdRTATdbTATb_^]S Is the eco-art trend a mere fad or a sturdy critique thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here to stay? By Gretchen Giles

:

atie Kurtz is really worried. She has good reason to be. So do the rest of us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Polar bears are eating other polar bears!â&#x20AC;? she exclaims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never happened before.â&#x20AC;? It is detestable to have to literally spell it out, but polar bears of course are eating other polar bears not because they have suddenly developed a heady taste for cannibalism, but because the ice that has supported their species for the millennia is thinning, melting and disappearing. And when our most â&#x20AC;&#x153;charismaticâ&#x20AC;? animals are threatened with extinction and we still do almost nothing to save them, the ground is disappearing beneath our own feet as well. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no small topic that has brought Kurtz out to a coffee shop in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission district on an unseasonably mild, even for S.F., August day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the polar bears, the hurricanes, the triple-digit temperatures recorded last month in Seattle. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s global warming, climate change and environmental

destruction. While scientists, politicians, corporate heads and Al Gore discuss it, Kurtz believes that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job to comment upon it. To that end, Kurtz proposes a whole new realm of critical theory through which to evaluate and interpret modern art, dubbing it â&#x20AC;&#x153;visual ecocriticism.â&#x20AC;? Already an accepted practice in literary circles, eco-criticism questions how nature and the environment are depicted in both artworks and the media; analyzes artâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even that which wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t create with, say, climate change in mindâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; through the prism of global concerns; questions the role of class, gender, race and sexuality in an environmental context; encourages artists to engage with activists in their work; and even examines the â&#x20AC;&#x153;footprintâ&#x20AC;? of the artwork: the sustainability of the materials used, their toxicity, their possible longevity in the atmosphere. Marin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Headlands Center for the Arts has organized a panel on the topic slated for Aug. 16. Joining Kurtz are photographer Barry Underwood, sculptor and painter Christel

Dillbohner and sculptor Christine Lee. Adding tension to the event is that Headlands program director Jessica Brier chose the artists, not Kurtz, and two of them donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t identify themselves as ecoartists in the slightest. While Lee uses cast-off wooden shims and abandoned phone books in her constructions, Dillbohner and Underwood just kind of do their thing, she by massing painted paper cones in palpable formation and painting mysterious encaustic landscapes, he by illuminating pristine outdoor environments with lavishly unnatural light. Each reflects the outside world but both are unwilling for a new mantle to be placed upon them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barry was interesting because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good fit, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m interested in how a panel discussion that actually puts artists in the same room who disagree and come at this from different angles might work,â&#x20AC;? Brier says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christel has really taken Katie to task on very specific points and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be pigeon-holed by this definition.â&#x20AC;? Certainly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural for a person who makes his or her living through creative ') THE BOHEMIAN

pursuits to shy away from neat slots and tidy summations. Proposing a whole new critical theory is fairly bold, particularly for a new MFA graduate, which Kurtz is, recently receiving her degree from the California College of the Arts. But what really begins to emerge from discussion with several art makers and professionals is where eco-artâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Big Green (as in money) of the Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;actually finds a foothold. And furthermore, is it an enduring trend that will mark this century or merely a short-term panicked fad?

B

tanding in the side gallery of the San Jose Institute for Contemporary Art last week, Dillbohner oversees the installation of her newest one-person exhibit, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice Floe.â&#x20AC;? A native of Cologne, Germany, she instructs the young man assisting her in a softly accented voice as he creates shadows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see myself as an environmental artist,â&#x20AC;? she explains, taking a break from the installation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see myself more as a human being in the world, and there are many things that we have to consider, including personal history and collective understanding. The human being in this world is in a certain phase.â&#x20AC;? That Dillbohner is not an â&#x20AC;&#x153;eco-artistâ&#x20AC;? by her own definition does not imply that she is unaware of greenhouse gas emissions and the plight of the polar bear. For â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice Floe,â&#x20AC;? she has filled the SJICAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gallery with some 1,500 paper filters, cones ordinarily purchased at paint stores, which she sees as an apt metaphor for the corpus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started using the filter as a symbol for the human body,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We take things in and filter them out, the residue gives us energy, and, in many ways, this is the basis for making decisions, for having a life, for taking action.â&#x20AC;? Dillbohner became interested in the far north for much the same reasons that Admiral Peary might have: its still, mute beauty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had been reading a lot of explorers, naturalists and writers about the arctic,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really intrigued by the idea that the people who came over the Bering Strait stayed. Why? It must be so amazing there that they simply stopped.â&#x20AC;? Dillbohner is not prone to pat answers, preferring to ask questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does global warming even mean?â&#x20AC;? she asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel incompetent to deal with the reality of it. As people, we have to take the power back and think about what we can do on a small scale that spreads out into the collective. Is there a future? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. We can only think as individuals.â&#x20AC;? Barry Underwood considers his photography to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;theater,â&#x20AC;? explaining that when he takes his lights and camera out into the wilderness, he is â&#x20AC;&#x153;underlining nature,â&#x20AC;? highlighting and drawing attention to glories that might otherwise go overlooked. In many ways, his startling use of neon under the roots of trees or illuminated blobs glowing red on a lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface call to mind those satisfying moments when one is outside and the light hits the trees or spots a cloud in a way that makes the hiker stop short.

Headlands Center, where he is an artist in residence, Underwood says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of heightening or falsifying the documentation of photography, it speaks within that vernacular, that subjective documentation.â&#x20AC;? In other words, photographer Barry Underwood is interested in photographyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not eco-art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that you have to be aware of things that are around you,â&#x20AC;? he explains, reminding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;that there are things out there to be photographed; you just have to be open to them and observant to them.â&#x20AC;? He allows, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I would play into the realm of visual eco-criticism.â&#x20AC;? Sculptor Ned Kahn doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flinch at the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;eco-artistâ&#x20AC;? or the idea of visual ecocriticism. This MacArthur Foundation â&#x20AC;&#x153;geniusâ&#x20AC;? fellow works with physics, allowing unseen phenomena to activate his work, creating vortices that water whirls rapidly through, hanging metal discs that are flirted with by the wind and so on. Speaking by phone from his Sebastopol studio, Kahn says flatly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that in light of the current climate change, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-optional not do useful things.â&#x20AC;? As his career has flourished, Kahn has become increasingly involved with architects in solving problems for green building projects, recently working on a $24 billion resort in Singaporeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a country with daily precipitation and no reservoirsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to collect rainwater on the roof and circulate it through the complex in an artful and sustainable way. Being Ned Kahn means knowing a lot of scientists, and that often means knowing more than he might like. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a friend whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing physicist, and he goes around giving this lecture that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hope,â&#x20AC;? Kahn says with a short laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order for climate change to be reversed, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to completely retool all the economies of the world, and it would have to happen now. It would require such a massive redoing of society and the way we all live that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just no way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen. After hearing his two-hour lecture, you just want to go out and kill yourself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the flip side of it,â&#x20AC;? he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sort of intrigued with the whole idea that nature was never controllable in the first place, and that nature always has been and is a changing thing and the weird way that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of this dance. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve altered it but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve altered it. You can depressed about it or you can get intrigued about it. For my own sanity, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to be intrigued about it.â&#x20AC;? Arizona artist Matthew Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bestknown piece may be his own farm. Selling off his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holdings lot by lot to suburban sprawl outside of Phoenix, Moore finally aped the mess by obtaining blueprints to the newest housing subdivision adjacent to his property and planting his own fields exactly to its specifications. Black rye outlined the asphalt streets; red rye, the rooftops. Moore is nothing if not pragmatic; come harvest time, he simply disked it, as all farmers must. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently working on a Rube Goldbergâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;esque conveyor belt for the city of Pasadena that is placed in a long-vacant lot and shoots out lettuce starts at regular intervals onto the street through the lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chain-link fence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overdone and elaborate

and ridiculous, which is how I feel about the conventional agricultural system,â&#x20AC;? Moore, who grows both conventional and organic produce, explains by phone from his Arizona home. Moore doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to identify himself as an eco-artist, one whose work can readily withstand the rigors of a new critical theory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that, at this point, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in the eco-art game, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re completely naĂŻve,â&#x20AC;? he says. But it does raise its own set of questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done things where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used materials I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have, like mylar to evoke water in the desert,â&#x20AC;? he admits, listing the rhetoric that accompanies: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the message strong enough to require using that material? Are there any biodegradable materials that could have been used instead? If so, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cost of those materials? In a purely material consideration, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even conceptually thinking about what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying with the materials you use. I think that you can go on and on and on.â&#x20AC;? Ultimately, Moore worries that eco-art, even with its own fancy new theory, could be nothing more than a fad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The art world is a very fickle thing,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always the worry that this will go away or that people will be tired of it, like the overtly political work of the 1980s. People really reacted horribly to that. Any sort of artwork now has to be very subtle. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give people answers. The more successful work now is asking questions. Then your work can function across disciplines.â&#x20AC;? Sam Bower oversees the online GreenMuseum.org, a virtual kunsthalle that operates out of Corte Madera but serves the world. With no physical presence, the Green Museum already saves on footprint. Bowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too concerned about eco-art and its accompanying critical theory being flashin-the-pan ideas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that our challenge in a larger sense is to direct the culture to find ways of drawing a larger, deeper, shift towards sustainability,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it will involve some aspects that are faddish and short-lived and others that are much deeper and more profound.â&#x20AC;? Bower encourages the dialogue to go beyond those with opposable thumbs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to begin to look at art from a nonhuman perspective,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fundamentally, if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really talking about things that are supposed to help the earth, we need to look at art that the worms and the watershed would appreciate,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really see the ultimate challenge for this century is to begin to look beyond the concept of what art is and do beautiful, elegant art in ways that is culturally rich and delicious.â&#x20AC;? Moore, who describes his farming practices as placing him in both the devil and angel camps, gets the last word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art is about naming things, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a long stretch of not being able to name anything,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what your work is called as long as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moving us all forward.â&#x20AC;?

1X[X]VdP[?d__Tcb^]FWTT[b The Imaginist Theatre Collective takes it to the streets Story and photos by Daniel Hirsch

B

quinting under the hot July sun, Jenine Alexander inspects Sergio Zavalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike as he circles along Sebastopol Avenue in Santa Rosa. The thick stack of 10-foot-long pieces of lumber strapped to the back of his bike wobble in his wake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How does it feel?â&#x20AC;? she asks him in Spanish, her second language, his first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bien, bien,â&#x20AC;? he responds, pedaling past. Alexander, an actress and animator who once quit her job working in Cyprus to join the Cyclo Circus for a bicycle journey through Russia to Indonesia, waves Zavala over so they can tighten the bungee cords holding his cargo in place. Zavala is no stranger to epic journeysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;three years ago he traveled by river raft from his home near Mexico City to enter the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and pulls his bike over to consult. Inside the Quonset-hut-turned-performancespace that Zavala and Alexander stand next to, others are at work: two college-aged girls cut human silhouettes out of cardboard; a seasoned actor with an air of an old Vaudevillian practices flute; a married couple debate in Spanish how to best attach a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike seat; a musician tunes

his guitar; two small children eat fruit snacks; and a pair of artistic directors scramble around, a bit harried, sweaty but remaining positive. This is the Imaginist Theatre Collective, and today is a very big day. On this particular Sunday afternoon, they will give the second performance of their original production Art Is Medicine / El Arte Es Medicina, a bilingual, free, all-ages, traveling puppet show. Before they can perform, they have to get to the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance space at Howarth Park which, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re transporting a multitiered marionette stage, dozens of puppets, a heap of props, two young children, a bunch of sound equipment and large papier-mâchĂŠ masks is no easy featâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to travel exclusively by bike. But for the Imaginists, whose very name implies implausibility, the impossible challenges of process and journey are what matter most. Headed by cofounders Amy Pinto and Brent Lindsay, the Imaginists originated at the North Carolina School for the Arts in the early 1990s as an experimental theater ensemble named Knights of Indulgence Theater United States (KITUS) that performed original works in the woods of Winston-Salem. Pinto and Lindsay, along with fellow ensemble members, closely read the works of avant-garde theorist Jerzy

Grotowski as well as modeling themselves on the communal structure of the Bread and Puppet Theater. The group eventually crossed the country to Truckee but dissolved by 2000. Lindsay and Pinto, life partners as well as creative ones, relocated to Sonoma County, where Lindsay grew up. In search of recreating the artistic community they had so thrived on with KITUS, they began anew, forming the Imaginist Theatre Collective in 2001. Since then, the Imaginists have moved into a performance space on Sebastopol Avenue in Santa Rosa and now perform a full season of works. The collective consists of three distinct facets: Project 104, a professional company that performs original, experimental works as well as established classics; two youth ensembles composed of local children and teenagers; and an annual community-based project that casts nonprofessional community members in original works. This latter project has captivated Pinto and Lindsay most recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last three of four years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been really wanting to integrate and make it a multicultural institution as well,â&#x20AC;?

Urinetown or whatever, but something that is really connecting to the larger community, and responding to it, that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a part of it.â&#x20AC;? Since relocating to Sonoma County and having a child, Pinto and Lindsay had observed a sharp split between the white and Latino communities and wanted to create a performance that addressed this divide by casting actors from both communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody was always saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never do it,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Lindsay says of trying to successfully reach out to Latinos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried it hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;we heard that time and time again.â&#x20AC;? Though they struggled at first to put together a diverse enough ensemble, the Imaginistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2007 bilingual production, The Divide / La DivisiĂłn, on the theme of crossing borders, excited a whole population who normally donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to theater. With half the cast Spanish-speaking, La DivisiĂłn, part of Performance Sonoma, got a lot of attention from the local Latino press. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ah! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re invited to something,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Lindsay quotes the general response of the Latino community who showed up in droves to sold-out performances of the Imaginists production. Their latest project, Art Is Medicine, is in an extension of that initial collaboration between communities. Inspired by the poetry of Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca and Gabriel GarcĂ­a MĂĄrquezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short story â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Man with Enormous Wings,â&#x20AC;? it casts a diverse and bilingual group of actors: trained ones from Project 104, former youth ensemble students and community members who were originally involved in La DivisiĂłn. But unlike all previous shows, this one is mobile. Earlier this year, when the Imaginists received a CASH Grant from Theater Bay Area, they pondered what to do with the money, until Project 104 company member Jenine Alexander suggested doing a traveling show on bikes like the Cyclo Circus. Lindsay and Pinto loved the concept and were able to put together a small fleet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea is that every summer weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do a touring show,â&#x20AC;? Pinto says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to respond to your community, you invite community in. But you also have to go to your community. Why should they always come to us?â&#x20AC;? The going out part can be a bit tricky. As the company prepares to disembark for its Howarth Park performance, Lindsay walks through the space cluttered with puppets and bike tools grumbling to himself: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kinks! Kinks! Kinks!â&#x20AC;? Last time they rode out, some of the bikes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have brakes, an omission to be corrected this time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been building bikes in one half of the space, and the show in the other half,â&#x20AC;? Lindsay says. Since this is only the second performance and the first real time riding with the whole company, there is obviously a lot that still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been worked out. Certain puppets donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet have hands because the papiermâchĂŠ didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dry fast enough. Company members Maria and Mario Solano are bringing their three-year-old daughter, Jimena, along for the first time and are

having difficulty attaching a child seat to Marioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike. Former youth ensemble member Alejandra Villagomez has only ridden a bike a handful of times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned how to ride a bike for this show,â&#x20AC;? Villagomez says with some pride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident about the show, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m nervous about the bike ride.â&#x20AC;? Pinto has been searching for an extra helmet for Villagomez for several minutes. In addition to Villagomezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novice bike-riding skills and some missing puppet hands, Pinto has more to worry about this morning. Because some of the rotating cast members couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here today, they are a little low on people to perform. She and Lindsay had to scramble to pay for a permit and book a time at Howarth Park. And so far, everything is running late. Ever positive, when asked if she feels ready for the day, Pinto responds with a laugh, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready for anything. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m even ready to get kicked out of the park.â&#x20AC;? At around 2:30pm, the company has tightened their bungee cords, found helmets for all parties and are ready to take off, about 30 minutes later than Pinto anticipated. Dressed in all white and each carrying a small load, bike trailer or child, the 12 riders are a sight to behold as they round the corner of Sebastopol and A Street. However, within only a minute a two they need to stop. Alexanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike, a huge, red frame modeled after Dutch postal bikes and specially commissioned from local artist Todd Barricklow, has a problem with its chain. With some wire and intuition, Alexander fixes her bike, and the Imaginists take off. Traveling under the midday sun along Sonoma Avenue, the mobile company gets more than a few stares. People in their front

lawns stop what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and watch as the row of bikers pass. The Imaginists keep their formation pretty well. Much to everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delight, Villagomez rides smoothly, upright and like a pro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so great to show people how much can be carried by bike,â&#x20AC;? Alexander says pedaling confidently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m carrying this huge set, and can easily wave to passing cars.â&#x20AC;? By 3:15, the Imaginists arrive at the park a bit tired and overheated, but there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t time to rest. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a show to do. They find a space in the shade by a large cluster of picnickers and get to work unloading their bikes and building a stage. Within the hour, a puppet stage rises above the lawn and a small crowd has formed. Company members Eliot Fintushel and Sergio Zavala act as barkers calling â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come to the show!â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Venga al show!â&#x20AC;? The performance that follows is not without, in Lindsayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;kinksâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; children from the audience come up onstage to play with props, airplanes fly above drowning out actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; voices, there are a few dropped lines and moments of confusionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; but nonetheless the performance draws people in and keeps them watching. Like the eclectic group of actors themselves, the audience is young, old, Spanish- and Englishspeaking and ready to engage with story, color, music and a unique journey. The Imaginists will be riding their bicycles to various parks and fairs all summer. Most shows are free with a suggested donation. Aug. 14 at 6pm, Bayer Farms.

Crossing two off the Shakespeare life list, plus more By David Templeton

C

here is a great line in the movie Pretty Woman where Edward has escorted Vivian to her first opera and says to her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People either love opera or they hate it. If they love it, they will always love it. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, they may learn to appreciate it, but it will never become part of their soul.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how some of us feel about Shakespeare. From the best-known to the least-known, the works of William Shakespeare have a way of hooking certain peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;myself among themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and keeping them for life. Most of us keep a running record of the Shakespeare plays we have seen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like our Shakespeare life list, and fans will often talk about their life lists in terms of those plays they have yet to see. Of the Bardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 36 plays, the popular ones are usually the first to be crossed off. As of last weekend, during my annual summertime pilgrimage to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, I was able to check off two more plays from my own list, leaving me with three to see before I die: Henry IV, Part Two, Timon of Athens and Two Noble Kinsmen. For now, I remain grateful that OSF has finally offered Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well That Ends Well and Henry VIII. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get to those later. Of the 11 shows launched by OSF during its nine-month-long 2009 season, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve reviewed Dead Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cell Phone, Death and the Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Horseman (no longer playing), Macbeth and The Music Man (both running through Nov. 1).

Among the other bounteous offerings presented this year, two others rounded out the quartet of shows I experienced last weekend. The Servant of Two Masters, originally written by Carlo Goldoni in 1753, is a popular Italian comedy that seems to return to favor every decade or so. In the OSFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Monty Pythonesque reworking of this farce, the text is dropped into a metaphorical food processor and poured out as a hilarious, anachronistic concoction that would baffle Goldoni but will delight anyone who thinks bad puns, silly faces, gross-out violence and fart jokes are funny (guilty as charged). In what will certainly go down as the least high-brow show ever staged at OSF, Servant is directed by Tracy Young and played by a cast of whirling, twirling comic maniacs who try to tell Goldoniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story but are beset by budget setbacks. In a rare bit of comedic self-reference, the actors inform the audience early on that their director has been fired, their props have been borrowed from other shows currently playing at the festival and that they are at the mercy of random power outages approved by management as a cost-saving measure (cue blackout, the first of many, all beautifully timed). And with that, they proceed with the story of Truffaldino (Mark Bedard), a very hungry professional servant who, in his quest for a good square meal in Vienna, ends up working for two masters: Federigo Rasponi, who is actually Rasponiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Beatrice (Kate Mulligan), in disguise, and Florindo (Elijah Alexander), Beatriceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost love. The whole

pantheon of commedia dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; arte characters are trotted out and fooled around with. The result is a slight but hilarious departure for OSF, and a smart move, as evidenced by the full houses drawn to the show by the good word of mouth. Equivocation (running through Oct. 31) is a world premiere by playwright Bill Cain. A brilliant and intoxicating historical â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatif-er,â&#x20AC;? the play examines the relationships between William Shakespeare (a first-rate Anthony Heald), his overlooked daughter Judith (Christine Albright), and the actors who made up his theater company, the Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Men. The story follows Shakespeare (here called Shagspeare, one of many historical alternatives to the Bardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name), as he is forced by King Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; right-hand man Sir Robert Cecil (Jonathan Haugen) to write a piece of propaganda about the recently foiled Gunpowder Plot, in which a band of Catholics may or may not have tried to blow up Parliament. As Shag attempts to dig into the real story behind the plot, he finds his conscience awakening, and sets out, against his fellow actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wishes, to write a play that will tell the truth, whether they all hang for it or not. Gorgeously written, meticulously directed by OSF artistic director Bill Rauch, this is easily the best show of the season. As gripping as a thriller, as eye-opening as the best of satires, it also packs a huge emotional wallop, affirming what it is about Shakespeare that has captured the souls of so many. Which brings us to the two seldomseen works. Henry VII (playing through Oct. 9 on the outdoor Elizabethan stage) first appeared in 1613 and is believed to have been co-authored with John Fletcher, after Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official retirement a year or two before. This visually grand but textually dense drama, directed with grandeur and pomp by John Sipes, reveals exactly why this play is so seldom performed. Though very well acted, with strong performances by Elijah Alexander as the waff ling King Henry, Anthony Heald as the manipulative Cardinal Wolsey and the great Vilma Shiva as Katherine, Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiery first but not last queen, the play is primarily interesting for the historical detail. Though there is little in the way of battles, and the plot is carried solely on a wave of words, Henry VIII describes the moment when England split with the Catholic church. The vibrant cast and sumptuous costumes save the show from tedium, but will probably appeal mainly to those who seek the novelty of viewing so rare an offering. Ironically, Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well That Ends Well (playing through Nov. 1) is so rarely performed because of its ending, in which things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really end so well, after all. The miraculous thing about this shimmering, sweet-hearted production, staged in OSFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intimate New Theater, is the way director Amanda Dehnert has transformed the play into something altogether new, with an ending that is memorably touching, and actually makes sense. That Dehnert has accomplished this by adding additional voiceover narration (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once upon a time in a faraway land . . .â&#x20AC;?) and has wholly invented a new character to tie the show together, might offend some purists, but as Vivian might say in Pretty Woman, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Screw â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em.â&#x20AC;?

efore Viggo Mortensen appeared as Aragorn, the Lord of the Rings eye-candy for all mothers in the theater, and before Liev Schreiber showed up in Wolverine with claws, they both shared the screen with Diane Lane in a steamy f lick set in the steamiest of times: 1969. Walk on the Moon, an updated Lady Chatterleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lover mixed with a little rock music and chutzpah, follows Pearl Kantrowitz, a frustratedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;although one might guess that being married to Liev Schreiber and his abs wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that terribleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;wife and mother from Brooklyn who finds herself having an affair with a charming hippie (Mortensen) during her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacation in the Catskills. Yes, ladies, Viggo Mortensen is totally ripped. And young and tan.

But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than acid trips, first dates with Mary Jane and a blushworthy scene in a waterfall going on in this look at the dynamics of a specific year in history. Sebastopol resident and Moon screenwriter Pamela Gray explains that Pearlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affair and reawakening all coincide with the thentumultuous state of the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was fascinated by the conjunction of that historical moment with a family being in the geographical vicinity of one of those revolutionary experiences, in this case Woodstock,â&#x20AC;? Gray says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time, it was the world of that Jewish bungalow colony community that was stuck in the 1950s.â&#x20AC;? In one of the best scenes of the film, a few wayward hippies are spotted stark naked and bathing in the recreational lake on the campgrounds. All the respectable parents break into a

sprint to retrieve their gaping and giggling children from the nowcontaminated water, while the hippies give a few dazed smiles and peace signs before leaving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a very volatile summer where there were different kinds of boundaries being crossed for the first time,â&#x20AC;? Gray remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walking on the moon, a festival like Woodstock, even the Kennedy Chappaquiddick scandals were new for that period. There was this sense of the world turning on its axis in a different way.â&#x20AC;? Inspiration for the plot came directly from Grayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past; she describes spending identical summers with her family as a teenager, experiencing the shifts and changes in the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent every summer at places like those until I was 16,â&#x20AC;? Gray recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember watching hippies walk to Woodstock through the chain link fence. I had that memory for my entire adult lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two worlds happening simultaneously.â&#x20AC;? The Rialto Lakeside Cinemas originally screened the film 10 years ago as part of the Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival. Gray says she contacted proprietor Ky Boyd about the 10-year anniversary of the film, and the two decided the timing was just right; 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first steps on the moon, and Taking Woodstock, a new film that takes a comic, star-studded look at the staging of the raucous musicfest, is also due to appear at the Rialto at the end of August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it would be a great pairing with Taking Woodstock, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a contemporary movie dealing with the same experiences I dealt with,â&#x20AC;? Gray says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ky is going to have a conversation with me after the film, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk about that summer, some of the behind-the-scenes stuff and the history of the film.â&#x20AC;? Walk on the Moon scored a spot on Entertainment Weeklyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;50 Sexiest Movies Ever,â&#x20AC;? coming in at No. 9. Whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due to a focus on the sexually charged atmosphere of the time or just Diane Lane covered in body paint, swaying along with the masses at Woodstock, is hard to say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth celebrating what it means to look back on those events,â&#x20AC;? Gray says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the kind of marketing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available to indie films today when it came out, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance for people to see it again.â&#x20AC;?

Relive history and check out Diane Laneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brooklyn accent in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Walk on the Moonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Wednesday, Aug. 19, at the Rialto, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. One screening only, 7:15pm. $7â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$10. 707.525.4840.

played for years with the Grateful Dead, wrote songs for Bonnie Raitt and Don Henley, and is now even penning a Broadway musical featuring a song about Donald Trump called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Don of Dons.â&#x20AC;?

Presidential Phunk Dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;James Brown of Africaâ&#x20AC;? by The Oakland Post, Victor Sila, of Sila and the Afrofunk Experience, certainly knows how to get down, feel good and sound good doing it. A few parts Fela Kuti, a few parts George Clinton, a whole heap of soul Ă  la the venerable Mr. Brown, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got Sila, a Kenyan ex-pat living in San Francisco. Silaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second release with the Afrofunk Experience, Black President, celebrates the inauguration of his fellow Kenyan-American with irresistibly danceable grooves, up-tempo, polyrhythmic jams and the well-placed socially conscious lyric or two. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to make you want to get on up. Sila and the Afrofunk Experience will be packing the dance f loor on Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9:30pm. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$13. 707.829.7300.

Aussie, Aussie, Audrey The cultures at the rural fringes of the former British Empire have a strangely similar feel. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit of West Texas in the ethos and attitude of the Australian Outback, places marked by grilled meat and cowboys scoping the vast desolate frontier, and a little bit of Appalachia in the formidable Aussie twang. With that said, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weirdly right about the songs of Audrey Auld, an Australian singersongwriter with roots just as deep in Tasmania as they are in Nashville. Auld likes to call her work â&#x20AC;&#x153;music with the dirt left on,â&#x20AC;? but that dirt doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just include brown dust-bowl or red outback; it also includes California coastal soilâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she lived in Marin County for several years. Her mellow Americana melodies and playful songwriting spans all these diverse corners of the globe, referencing eating Vegemite right alongside doing yoga in Stinson. Auld will be channeling

Joan Baez, Tammy Wynette and Mad Max on Saturday, Aug. 15, at the intimate Studio E in Sebastopol which, as if to add to the geographic confusion, requires purchased tickets to obtain the address. 8pm. $25. 707.542.7143.

Quadruple Threat In the pantheon of dark musical comedies, there are few faces as memorable as the elastic, pale, grinning visage of Joel Greyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master of ceremonies in the 1972 film version of Cabaret. His performance as the Brechtian emcee of the Kit Kat Club dazzled, disturbed and earned Grey an Academy Award. Grey has also won four Tony Awards and starred in a little Broadway smash hit called Wicked. But what his high-Cnote-belting fans may not know is that Grey is also an accomplished photographer. His images frequently zoom in close to oft-unexamined surfaces. In his most recent collection, Grey continues to look at things in a new way by

specifically capturing low quality images on a camera phone. This week, the North Bay gets Grey showing off all his various skills. On Friday, Aug. 14, he presents his collection 1.3: Images from My Phone at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960. The next night, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be performing with a full orchestra on Saturday, Aug. 15, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $85â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$135. 415.383.9600.

Bruce Almighty There are lots of formidable, tough-as-nails baddies named Bruce out there: Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Lee, Bruce Willis and Bruce â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Batmanâ&#x20AC;? Wayne among many. But none of them dare compare when it comes to playing the pleasant jazz-bluegrass-country-jam-band piano stylings of the one and only Bruce Hornsby. A three-time Grammy award winner, Hornsby has had a career spanning decades and genres. He

If you ever find yourself soaring through a vast void as timeless planets implode on themselves, releasing wispy clouds of beautiful luminous gases, and you are faced with the meaning of your own small existence among the infinite, expanding universe, Kronos Quartet is the music you want to be listening to. The San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based string quartet has been making heartbreaking, spellbinding and mind-blowing experimental classical music since 1973. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve collaborated with the likes of Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, David Bowie, Tom Waits and Bjork. Having composed the soundtrack of intense films like Requiem for a Dream, Kronos often tackle difficult subject matter through their work (their newest album Floodplain takes the barren and damaged landscapes of f lood zones as its central inspiration). But the much-acclaimed quartet also isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adverse to a little summer fun. They are performing at a lawn barbecue this week. Eat some ribs and ponder existence to Kronos Quartet on Sunday, Aug. 16, at the Rancho Nicasio. 1 Old Rancheria Road, Nicasio. 3pm. $25. 415.662.2219.

THE BOHEMIAN

Summer Music Festival offers diverse treasures ometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find a musical event that the whole family can enjoy. Sure, Mom canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough of Handel, and Dad loves to hear Celtic harp, but what about cousin Larry and his infatuation with ancient Japanese drumming? And what do you do with Aunt Mildred who only listens to something called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goth swingâ&#x20AC;?? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even mention your sister-in-lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fixation with all things Patsy Cline. Well, this year at the 20th Petaluma Summer Music Festival thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for the whole darn crew. Truly. The festival hosts a 50-piece Italian orchestra playing opera as well as Stevie Wonder classics; Celtic harpist Chris Caswell (above); the Taiko Ren drum ensemble; LaďŹ bi and Friends ďŹ&#x201A;amenco troupe; a 250th birthday party for Handel; jazz singer Kim Nalley; a toe-tapping performance by Goth swing group Lee Press-On and the Nails; and performances of Always . . . Patsy Cline, a musical revue of the country queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest hits. This wild cornucopia of musical genres springs forth from the creative team at Cinnabar Theater who have organized the festival for the last 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ideas come from all over the place!â&#x20AC;? Cinnabar artistic director Elly Lichtenstein says about the festival lineup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our board members has been bugging me for years to get Taiko drummers. So this year, we got them. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very selďŹ sh people,â&#x20AC;? she laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gift to ourselves by way of giving it to the community.â&#x20AC;? To further sweeten the selďŹ sh/altruistic musical gift, the festival steps outside the conďŹ nes of Cinnabarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance space and presents works in a variety of Petaluma locales. Taiko drums will bellow through the Goltermann Gardens, Celtic harp will resonate ethereally at the Petaluma Historic Museum, and the musicians playing Handelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Water Music will do so on barge ďŹ&#x201A;oating along the Petaluma River. This sounds all well and good for Mom, Dad, Cousin Larry, Aunt Mildred, and your weird sister-in-law, but what do we do with Grandpa Pete who thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pirate? The festival eagerly includes the Great Petaluma Treasure Hunt, which will provide clues to participants leading all over town. With diverse venues, eclectic performances and a treasure hunt, Lichtenstein explains that â&#x20AC;&#x153;this festival is about rediscovering Petaluma as a unique place to be.â&#x20AC;? Bring the whole clan to ďŹ nd that out when the Petaluma Summer Music Festival runs Aug. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept.13 at various locations. Freeâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;$40. For a complete schedule and ticket information, visit www.cinnabartheater.org or call 707.763.8920. Daniel Hirsch

Healdsburg Guitar Fest draws an avid crowd

SOL MAN â&#x20AC;˘ TRUE VALUE HARDWARE END OF THE RAINBOW

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the oldest original event of its type,â&#x20AC;? says director Chris Herrod of the Healdsburg Guitar Festival. Slated for Aug. 14â&#x20AC;&#x201C;16, the festival showcases the works of 100 of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest luthiers. In turn, guitarists from all over the world will share their music and teach workshops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a truly international event, with guitar builders traveling from six continents,â&#x20AC;? Herrod says. From the top-of-the-line guitars and merchandise to workshops to highly skilled luthiers and numerous concerts, the festival has something for every guitar enthusiast at every skill levelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and even something for those who are not quite the enthusiast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have people who go to the event who are not particularly into guitars who have an amazing experience,â&#x20AC;? Herrod assures. The performances alone make the festival worth attending. Beginning at 10:30am each day, workshops will cover just about everything. For those looking to tap into their inner rock star, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Acoustic Hendrix: How to Play Rock Music on Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar.â&#x20AC;? If something a little softer is in mind, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ChordsFirst Approach for Jazz Guitar.â&#x20AC;? Beyond genre, the workshops assist in performance, navigating the fingerboard, alternative tuning, guitar as vocal accompaniment and more guitar topics than one could imagine would fit into a three-day festival.

Healdsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Tom Ribbecke will be in attendance again this year, showing off his beautiful craftsmanship. A regular at the festival who has made guitars for the pop star Seal, Ribbecke remains a huge presence, even extending his workshops to those coming from abroad in preparation for the event. Ribbecke used to be a guitarist himself, but interviewed years ago in these pages he revealed a change of heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a six-week gig down in San Jose over Christmas, and on Christmas Eveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;during my fifth week of doing this four nights a weekâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I was looking out over the audience, and it was a piano bar, and some guy threw up his gin and tonic on my feet,â&#x20AC;? he remembered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, who are you going to see in a bar on Christmas Eve except the most dysfunctional? It was like the Star Wars bar scene. I looked at those people and I looked at myself and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to stop this. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting too old for this particular environment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Ribbecke never hung up the guitar, though, devoting his life to the craft of building them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heaven, it looks just like the Healdsburg Guitar Festival,â&#x20AC;? jested guitar buyer Henry Lowenstein in Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best luthiers get together to talk, play and show the best of what they have to offer the public.â&#x20AC;? Lowenstein forgets that these luthiers are from all over the world, giving a much broader view of what this festival will bring. Guitar makers will be holding a sale and exhibition, showcasing the highest quality guitars and equipment, both for purchase and for admiration. Specialists in steel, archtop, classical and electric guitars will all be on site, ready to speak to the craftsmanship of their instruments. But when workshops and beautiful guitars become too much, it just might be time to kick back and take a listen. For this, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still ample opportunity. Each of the three days, there will be performances from 11:30am to 5:30pm at both the Merlo Theater and in the more intimate Carston Cabaret. While the sets may be short, the list of artists is long. From jazz to country, from classical to rock, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an artist on the itinerary to meet everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical desires. On Saturday, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Italian poet of the acoustic guitar,â&#x20AC;? Franco Morone headlines the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grand finale, playing his fresh reinterpretations of traditional pieces as well as his original musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;poetry.â&#x20AC;? Opening for Morone will be Tim Thompson, who won first place last year at the International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition in Winfield, Kan. Thompson has television and movie soundtrack credits under his belt and has also provided accompaniment for country singer Crystal Gayle, sister to country great Loretta Lynn. Come share the love of a craft that lives on and continues to thrive, setting the musical backdrop for life. Festival director Chris Herrod encourages all to go and â&#x20AC;&#x153;expect to be dazzled by amazing musicianship.â&#x20AC;? The Healdsburg Guitar Festival runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday, Aug. 14â&#x20AC;&#x201C;16, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $12 per day; $22 whole festival. Workshops, $35; concert, $15. 707.546.3600.

Barbara Boxer grinds some fictional axes hat do our elected representatives do with their spare timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if they have any? Sen. Barbara Boxer writes novels; her second, Blind Trust, co-written by Mary-Rose Hayes, is political payback sort of masquerading as a Washington, D.C., thriller. Heroine Ellen Fischer Lind is a California senator (write about what you know) presiding over confirmation hearings for the new secretary of Homeland Security, an old Republican nemesis named Carl Satcher. Suddenly, Ellen is sucker-punched by a leak claiming that she and her husband have abused their blind trust; more scandalous revelations about her trusted aide follow. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind these scurrilous attacks? Clearly, Boxer has more than a few axes that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sbeen dying to sharpen. The biggest target is one Sam Slaughter, an odious right-wing talk-show host, whose program, The Slaughterhouse, is really a clearing-house for unsubstantiated attacks on wellmeaning Democrats. He is â&#x20AC;&#x153;mean-spirited, inaccurate, provocative, disgusting.â&#x20AC;? Take that, Rush. Luckily, after some transparent plot turns, a semblance of decency is restoredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;because, dammit, liberals need fairy tales, too. The writing is serviceable, although occasionally veering toward parody: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listen,â&#x20AC;? says Ellenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s politico husband, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ever since I saw you across that room, fighting for your childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill with every nerve in your body, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve loved you and wanted you and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand the thought of losing you.â&#x20AC;? So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not exactly a bodice-ripper; maybe budget-ripper is closer to the mark. Boxer appears for a booksigning event on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at 7pm at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. Free. 415.927.0960.

This lovely gray kitty has quickly become one of the cat cuddler's favorites – He loves to have you sweet talk him and he plays coy before he completely surrenders and rolls over for all the attention you want to give him – you did have the rest of the day available, didn't you? And all this from a stray! To learn more about adopting Dexter or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 126pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org.

I’m a sweetheart of a dog, a 6-year old Scottish Deerhound mix, good with kids and eager to please. To learn more about adopting Annie or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 126pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org
