Renowned American environmentalist and writer Bill McKibben, leading efforts to build the first global-scale climate change movement, will discuss the significance of the number 350, the 350.org campaign, and the importance of the upcoming International Day of Climate Action on October 24th. With carbon dioxide levels already exceeding 350 parts per million Bill McKibben is traveling the world to awaken people to the dire threat of global warming. In this special appearance he’ll explain how Sonoma County can join thousands of others to send its own unique message through a countywide day of climate actions on October 24. Presented in partnership with Climate Protection Campaign, Post Carbon Institute, Sierra Club Sonoma Group, Peace & Justice Center of Sonoma County, Network for Spiritual Progressives of Sonoma County

F0C4AH=DAB4AH I have been diving, working and fishing off the Sonoma and Mendocino coasts for many years, and I know how passionate local folks are about our ocean. Still, I was surprised and, frankly, disappointed to read in Alastair Blandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article on the Marine Life Protection Act that some shortsighted people still oppose protections that will maintain, and in some cases restore, the health and productivity of North Coast waters (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coastal Conundrum,â&#x20AC;? Aug. 26). Fishing and abalone diving are integral parts of our regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy and way of life, and that is precisely why we need to keep them sustainable for the long haul. Our population is growing every year, and so is demand for abalone and other ocean plants and animals. But their numbers are going the opposite direction. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen abalone populations dwindle to extinction elsewhere, and we should count ourselves lucky that we can still collect them off the North Coast. If we want to keep it that way, we have to set aside a few key areas, especially the nurseries that help

reseed local waters. Marine protected areas are a smart investment; if we manage them well, we can live off the interest, but we have to be in this for the long haul. As an ab diver, dive master and fisherman, I applaud the local stakeholders who created a commonsense plan to protect our sea life and habitats. Thanks to their hard-fought compromises and the vision of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fish and Game Commission, consumptive users like me can look forward to many seasons of abundance.

0;;A>03B;403C> In its obsession with highway expansion, Caltrans is internally comforted by two monumentally false premises (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heat Rises,â&#x20AC;? Green Zone, Sept. 16). As columnist Julianne Poirier noted, the first is that the Romans were wrong in their belief that traffic expands to keep up with roadway expansion. Over the last 2,500 years, that reality has been demonstrated endlessly. The second is that the gridlock produced in the cities at the ends of the freeway doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. Or as a Caltrans District IV Director once put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not our department.â&#x20AC;?

The article in the recent Bohemian regarding street light blackouts emphasized the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big numberâ&#x20AC;? of $800,000 annual electric cost to run city lights (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Darkness on the Edge of Town,â&#x20AC;? Sept. 16). Simple arithmetic shows the cost per Santa Rosa resident at about 1.7 cents a day. That seems to me to be a minimal expense to provide real safety at night. Is Public Works itself really necessary? Big savings there, I think.

Though his use of heroin over the years is well-known and -publicized, he did not die of an overdose. Heart failure, heart attack, whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not an overdose. Please check the facts before printing. Otherwise, great article!

Hi, Mary (Hi, all the many people who phoned): This was an editing error made by someone old enough to remember the hot August afternoon of Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, by someone old enough to have been listening to the radio like it mattered that day by her grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fairfax pool, by someone old enough to have been amid pouring pure baby oil onto her flesh as a UV enhancement and by someone once young enough to have cried. In other words, Dan Hirsch nearly had to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;Garciaâ&#x20AC;? spelled out phonetically, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t his fault. In other editing oddities, our recent hot! hot! hot! bagel roundup (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hole in One,â&#x20AC;? Sept. 2) drew the usual savage criticism that such deeply investigative pieces are wont to attract. To wit: The California Bagel Deli would like to know why it received a Câ&#x20AC;&#x201C; rating for the quality of its products when the Sonoma Valley Bagel Co., which provides the California Bagel Deli with said products each morning from a location just a few blocks away, received an Aâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the exact same bagel. We suspect that a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heck if we knowâ&#x20AC;? response may be inadequate, our writer blaming the vagaries of taste and tongue and palate. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re old enough to admit that it probably was his fault, but young enough to suggest that baking yer own is certainly one way to go if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to use the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;bagelâ&#x20AC;? in your name.

Levi Leipheimer talks about his favorite training roadâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the ride heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsoring to help keep Santa Rosa on the cycling map By Gabe Meline

;

evi Leipheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;world-class cyclist, three-time Tour of California champion, USA road champion, DauphinĂŠ LibĂŠrĂŠ champion and Santa Rosa resident with four Top 10 finishes in the Tour de Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;still clearly remembers the first time he rode King Ridge Road, in 1996, soon after coming to Sonoma County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was blown away,â&#x20AC;? Leipheimer says on the phone from home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first ride I did in Sonoma County, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had a good taste of our cycling roads before then, but when I did King Ridge Road, I was just

blown away. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that there was this road that went on for hours without any cars or any sight of anyone out there. It was just beautiful. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to really describe what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like.â&#x20AC;? So when the city of Santa Rosa found itself struggling again to raise funds to host the Tour of California for a fifth consecutive year, Leipheimer hatched an idea. Why not host an open-invitation ride, charge a modest entry fee, and donate the majority of the net proceeds to the city for the Tour? With city officials and local cycling leaders, he began planning whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known throughout Europe as a GranFondo, a long-

distance open ride for pros and amateurs alike. Leipheimer, of course, knew just the route to take. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I had the idea to do the GranFondo, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just no question,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to go on King Ridge.â&#x20AC;? On Oct. 3, Levi Leipheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King Ridge GranFondo will bring in 3,500 cyclists from 38 different states, with more from as far away as Guam and England. The effort to keep the Tour of California routed through Santa Rosa will receive 65 percent of the net proceeds, with the remaining 35 percent going to Forget Me Not Farm, an animal-therapy center for at-risk youth. For Leipheimer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really just &&

A young father learns to handle life alone By Rob Loughran

<

y daughter Elisa recently emailed me pictures of her daughter Gillian smiling and ready for her first day of school. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m certain my granddaughter hugged her mom goodbye with fear and excitement and anticipation and walked away into a brand-new world, just as Elisa hugged me some 25 years ago. But I wonder what Elisa did after Gillian disappeared into that swarm of first-day students? She probably choked back, then wiped away, a tear and marveled at how quickly the time had gone: all those natural and sentimental feelings of parenthood. The day I dropped Elisa off for her first day of school I returned, for the first time in my life, to a quiet and empty house. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been raised in the crowded, loud and rollicking house of Irish immigrants. A brother or cousins or neighbors or a priest or aunts and uncles were always sitting and perpetually eating and drinking at our kitchen table. I married young and had five children of my own, the best way, rapid fire, so you can deal with them when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re young and energetic and stupid. But then my wife, Luanne, died of a rare, quick and deadly cancer, and I was now widowed and young and sad and stupid. The eldest was 10 when Luanne died and Elisa was three, and I was busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest waiting tables and wiping noses and helping with homework and driving to soccer games and cooking and trying to finish my first novel. Thank God for that hurricane of confusion. If I had time to deal with the dread and perplexity of facing a life alone with five children, I probably would have given up. But if you have kids, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up. I remember when Elisa was about Gillianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age, she woke me up at 2 in the morning. She stood in front of me in the half-light of the bedroom. Her hair was mussed and her Flintstone pajamas were rumpled. She had been crying. In a voice that barely trembled, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember what mommy looked like.â&#x20AC;? I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say a word. At that moment her grief was irreconcilable. The world had snatched another thing from her: Luanneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face no longer existed as a ready and reliable memory. For Elisa, the time to cry and say goodbye to her mother wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at the official funeral, but in her pajamas on a warm August

night 25 months later. On this night, with Elisa, I did the only thing a father can possibly do in this situation. I made hot chocolate. Elisa was sitting on my lap, drinking her chocolate, when I asked her if she wanted to look at some pictures of her mother. She nodded a silent yes. As I rummaged in the closet for photo albums, I wondered if I was doing the right thing. At times, it had been comforting to look at old pictures and reread poetry I had written Luanne. At other times, it was like picking a scab. But Elisa and I sat down on the kitchen floor, and soonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it would have been sooner, but I spilled my hot chocolateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; pictures were scattered all around us. Elisa latched onto a picture of Luanne holding her older sister Rachel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s me, huh, Dad?â&#x20AC;? I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Ellie, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not.â&#x20AC;? She asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I have this picture?â&#x20AC;? I said yes and she walked to the refrigerator, grabbed a magnet and positioned the picture halfway up the door. She returned, kissed me and hiked off to bed. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter to Elisa that she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the baby in her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arms. There was something in the image: Luanneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes, her hair, the way she held the child that resurrected the spirit and memory of her dead mother. All the kids had their moments like this while dealing with their motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. My moment was Elisaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first day of school. I dropped her off and returned home to a house strewn not only with five childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detritus, but with the overwhelming fact that I was alone. Not suddenly, but finally, the grief had me to itself. Man, it hurt. It hurt beyond pain and tears; it ached to the point of surrender. You can delay grief with activities or chemicals, but you cannot deny it unless you choose not to heal it. Elisaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first day of school was also the first day I faced, and precisely the time I began to mend, the actual and excruciating emotion surrounding the death of the woman I loved.

I was now widowed and young and sad and stupid.

another chance to show off the incredible local cycling roads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, it brings a lot of money, it brings a lot of coverage to our city,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which are very important things. But I think more than anything, what I want to do is try to make Sonoma County and specifically Santa Rosa more cycling-friendly. I want it to be like Portland or Davis. When people speak about Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great cycling towns, I want Santa Rosa to be one of them.â&#x20AC;? Raissa de la Rosa, involved with fundraising for the Tour of California with Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department of economic development, knows that such visibility comes at a price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just a miraculous answer to some of our money woes,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What were the other options? There really werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very many.â&#x20AC;? Hosting the Tour of California 2010 will cost the city up to $180,000, de la Rosa says, and unlike years past, none of that money will be available from the general fund. The private sector, also, is as dry as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever been. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have been scraping it together to the bitter end,â&#x20AC;? de la Rosa says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a really good chance that we were going to pull the plug.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no telling exactly how much the GranFondo will bring to the city, but Leipheimer wants to make it an annual event, and a fast sellout this year raises the possibility of a higher entry fee in years to come. One thing the organizers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want, however, is to raise the cap on the number of riders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While there could have been a much greater revenue stream from allowing more people to register, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focusing our efforts on providing a quality event,â&#x20AC;? says Carlos Perez, editor of Bike Monkey magazine and director of the GranFondo. Perez has even visited volunteer fire departments along the route to discuss the ride and to assuage residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns. Earlier this year, Leipheimer ran a training camp in Sonoma County with his Astana teammates, including Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador, and in addition to Pine Flat and Spring Mountain Roads, he led them to King Ridge. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides being blown away by the scenery,â&#x20AC;? he recalls, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they thought it was pretty tough.â&#x20AC;?) For the GranFondo, he plans to intentionally ride slower to keep pace with the amateur ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to fall back through different groups,â&#x20AC;? he promisesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;although the 103-mile King Ridge route causes Leipheimer to offer a word of caution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a couple of key climbs you think of when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing the loop, but if you focus too much on those, then a road like Seaview becomes deceivingly hard,â&#x20AC;? Leipheimer advises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get past the climb on King Ridge, you climb out of Hauser Bridge, and you get the sense that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just downhill to Jenner. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not the case. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very hard on Seaview, and then you descend down onto Highway 1, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some climbs, and then of course the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna go is up the famous climb for the Tour of California, which is Coleman Valley. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very tough.â&#x20AC;? Levi Leipheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GranFondo is on Saturday, Oct. 3, beginning and ending at Finley Park in Santa Rosa.

5X]SX]VcWT1P[P]RT Can growing a smaller footprint create a larger life?

By Juliane Poirier

ohn Sensenbaugh wanted to reduce his carbon footprint by growing some food. A retired Napa retail business owner, Sensenbaugh was not born with a green thumb. Yet feeling the nudge to eat more locally produced foods, he last year took to vegetable growingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and failed (except in the eyes of the deer that stripped his plants to the roots). So he tried again. This time he outsmarted the cloven-hoofed grazers by adding height to the fence. He even amended the soil. The garden survived, and Sensenbaugh canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop talking about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told myself this year was going to be different. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone since April without having to buy vegetables, except some onions and potatoes,â&#x20AC;? Sensenbaugh says, eyes wide and smiling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pick lettuce almost every night.â&#x20AC;? I detect in his voice the same tones of surprise and pride I hear when my eightyear-old has attempted something new, expecting one outcome and getting several more welcome outcomes in the bargain. Sensenbaugh is delighted to learn that he is not a plant killer, and admits to rookie mistakes like planting radish seeds too close together. Unlike the Napa foodies who garden with a vengeance, or the oldtimers who can garden merely by the smell of the dirt, Sensenbaugh is just a guy with a no-frills vegetable patch, trying to figure out which end of the spade is which. But his experience clearly illustrates some of the ways in which growing vegetables surprisingly adds more to life than salad. Sensenbaugh lives alone. He told me that growing vegetables is something he does by himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s me and my dog,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gardening is basically a solitary activity.â&#x20AC;? Yet beyond the fencing, watering, weeding and what Sensenbaugh calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;playing in the dirt,â&#x20AC;? gardening is not altogether a solo endeavor. In fact, it appears to have drawn new people and experiences into his life. In order to figure out how to garden, Sensenbaugh had to get some help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met

a couple of other people who were going to get gardens going,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kept notes and helped each other get started. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met some people I might not have known otherwise, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten to know my neighbors better.â&#x20AC;? While Sensenbaugh was out weeding one day, he spontaneously called over the fence to his neighbor with an offer of leeks. The neighbor, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been living next door for almost a decade, was happy to receive the leeks and later brought over a hefty load of apricots from his yard as a thank-you. When Sensenbaugh discovered a bumper crop of wild plums from a volunteer tree on his property, he bartered with a friend who owned the right tools for the job, and they spent two days picking and canning about 20 pints of jelly and eight quarts of plums in syrup. They split the takings and gave some to friends. Sensenbaugh has quickly learned the social benefits of sharing his gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gifts. When he went out on a date recently, he brought over vegetables instead of f lowers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The second time I was with her,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I greeted her with corn, tomatoes and blackberries. It was better than a dozen roses.â&#x20AC;? Sensenbaugh has also proudly served his garden greens to the guys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of my male friends came over and I made them corn salad with shredded beets and cucumber and tomatoes,â&#x20AC;? Sensenbaugh says proudly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were duly impressed.â&#x20AC;? Another connection Sensenbaugh has made from gardening is a fresh perspective on a childhood chore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mom had a wonderful garden when I was a kid,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. It was his chore to weed it, so he was not a big fan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I have a lot more admiration and respect for what she did because my garden is about a tenth of what she had,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I plan to make my garden bigger. I want to have a winter garden, too.â&#x20AC;? Sensenbaugh recalls a quote that strikes him as true. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was told thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a balance of time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allotted on earth,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But time spent gardening isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t subtracted from the balance.â&#x20AC;?

John Sensenbaugh is just a guy with a no-frills vegetable patch, trying to figure out which end of the spade is which.

s 39-year-old Binnur Apaydin was being rushed via helicopter to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital last year, she clutched her chest and said to herself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dying, no more time for me.â&#x20AC;? The Turkish immigrant had gone to see her doctor in Petaluma, complaining of chest and neck pain. He diagnosed her as having a heart attack and told Binnur that a helicopter was her best hope. She resisted leaving and said she just wanted to see her husband and daughter, but the doctor put her in the copter. In Santa Rosa, they raced Binnur into the operating room, inserted two stents and saved her life. But months into her recovery, Binnur went into a funk. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much to do, her husband Ozkan Apaydin had lost his job, and, unable to pay their bills, the couple lost both the house they owned in Sacramento and their farm in Turkey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The budget was too tight,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything was upside down.â&#x20AC;? Binnurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doctor

said she needed to get more involved with life, and her brother, Serdar Besir, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come to Petaluma to help the Apaydins open a restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the heart attack, I kept having a dream that tomorrow is my last day,â&#x20AC;? Binnur says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have to do something to bring you back to the real world.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My brother, then working as a chef in New York, said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open a restaurant.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy, too stressful, but as long as the family is together, OK.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the Apaydinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first foray into the restaurant business. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d briefly run Real Gyro in Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stony Point Plaza. But after just six weeks, it closed due to a dispute with the landlord. Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss is Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gain. Real DĂśner opened last March at the corner of Petaluma Boulevard and D Street, serving authentic Turkish food including dĂśner (a lamb, beef or chicken wrap with tomatoes and cucumbers, the Turkish version of a gyro; $8), meaty kebabs ($9), a red-lentil soup ($3.50) and lahmacun ($3.95), a thin pizza layered with ground beef, tomatoes, onions and paprika.

The decor is basic; diners order at the counter, then the food is brought to the table, either inside the restaurant or on the outdoor patio. The long room is enlivened by a big, brass, 250-year-old shoeshine stand thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in the family for generations, a towering hookah and a pair of â&#x20AC;&#x153;evil eyes,â&#x20AC;? a blue Turkish emblem said to ward off malevolent spirits. Two vertical spits slowly turn, one roasting beef and lamb, the other searing chicken. In a rack by the register, Turkish magazines and bags of ground coffee share space with Cheetos, Doritos and Fritos. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bowl of customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; business cards on the counter. Every day, Ozzie, as his friends call him, picks one and gives away a free meal ($10 limit). So, yes, in Petaluma there is such thing as a free lunch. The refrigerated front counter has such raw skewers ready for grilling as the popular Adana lamb kebab. Atop the counter are heaping platters of desserts: baklava, which Ozzie swears originated in Turkey ($3.95); and the irresistible buibul yuvasi ($2.50), a birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nest of &+ THE BOHEMIAN

phyllo dough thinner than angel hair topped with pistachios bits and light syrup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the best in the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we know how to do it; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Turkish dessert,â&#x20AC;? Ozzie says. It sounds boastful, but after one bite of the sumptuous pastry, I heartily concur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sweet is no good for me,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but we broke them down,â&#x20AC;? Ozzie says. Ozzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother-in-law, Serdar Besir, emerges from the kitchen, takes one look at my buibul yuvasi and whisks it away, insisting it has to be hot. He returns after warming it and sets it down with a cup of Turkish coffee ($3.50). Served in little china cups, the coffee evokes memories of Istanbulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cafes, the deep brown brew rich and flavorful with just the right interplay of sweetness and bitterness, with an espressolike caffeine kick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make people happy,â&#x20AC;? Besir says before gesturing toward his brother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But his goal? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to make money.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course,â&#x20AC;? Ozzie laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the manager.â&#x20AC;? Ozzie has worked hard for his success. He left a thriving appliance business in Mersin, Turkey, and brought his wife and only child to the United States. in 2000 because Binnur wanted their daughter to get an American education. Cagsar, then eight, is now going into her senior year at Petaluma High. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has a good report card,â&#x20AC;? Ozzie says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy.â&#x20AC;? Binnur adds that her daughter now wants to be a doctor, so she can â&#x20AC;&#x153;cure my heart.â&#x20AC;? After coming to the States, Ozzie worked in a parking garage, for a shuttle company and then drove a taxi for four years. Showing typical immigrant ingenuity, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d find out when cruise ships were landing, when hotel guests were checking out and when conventions were in town to ensure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always have fares. That hunger has paid off at the restaurant. Real DĂśner has been a hit since its opening

day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the grand opening, we ran a special: buy one dĂśner, get one free. We had a line that stretched an hour and a half. I was shocked.â&#x20AC;? Most Americans know what a gyro is, but many have never heard of dĂśner. The Apaydins chose the name because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Turkish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;American people are so good,â&#x20AC;? Binnur says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They may not know what dĂśner means, but they give us a chance.â&#x20AC;? Despite the recession, the Apaydins are doing well. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not getting rich, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting by, and, most important, Binnurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health is improving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Working in this restaurant is part of the healing,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole family is togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that makes me more strong.â&#x20AC;? A customer comes to pick up a to-go order and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a dollar short. She said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d run to her ATM, but the Apaydins say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, you can pay next time.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of place Real DĂśner isâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the owners act as hosts and make the customers feel like family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have fancy tables or lights,â&#x20AC;? Binnur says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we do have warm friendship and good food.â&#x20AC;? The restaurant is open from 10am to 10pm daily, and the cooking starts around 6am. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bread has to be fresh, the meat has to be right,â&#x20AC;? Binnur says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open a box and put it on a skewer; we have to find the right spices, so we go to San Francisco. We have to find the right organic tomatoes, not just any organic tomatoes, but good ones. I have to smell it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the little details, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes the whole. So, yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard job,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a hard person, and hard things make me more powerful.â&#x20AC;? The intense work started before the restaurant opened in a building that needed an overhaul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fixed the walls, we fixed the ceiling, we put down a new floor. We made a picnic in here and kept working to 1am,â&#x20AC;? Binnur says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fixed this place. And this place has fixed my heart.â&#x20AC;? Real DĂśner, 307 F St. (at Petaluma Boulevard North), Petaluma. 707.765.9555.

?0;<4B4 14=458C ecause life emphatically reveals itself to be utterly unfair at every turn in the road, the talented young chef Thaddeus Palmese is ďŹ ghting cancer. Palmese has been cooking with his cousin Ted Van Doorn and Tedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Heather, ever since 2005, when the pair opened the Starlight Wine Bar & Restaurant in a restored Sebastopol train caboose.

B

To help Palmese with his ever-mounting medical bills (can anyone say â&#x20AC;&#x153;single-payerâ&#x20AC;??) and to rally the community around their adored chef and relative, the Van Doorns host an emergency beneďŹ t for him on Monday, Sept. 28, from 5pm to 8pm. To accommodate a crowd, the Sassafrass restaurant has kindly lent its space to this $25 Creole feast. Live entertainment is planned, and the Van Doorns are accepting all donations for a silent auction. Sassafrass is at 1229 N. Dutton Ave., Santa Rosa. 707.578.7600. Those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend but wish to make a donation can send checks and goodwill to the Starlight, 6761 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol, CA 95472.

5D=F8C764A<0= ermans have a word for everything. Their language gives us names for ideas and feelings so elemental to our lives and way of thinking, but which often elude our paltry English nomenclature. Schadenfreude, Doppelgänger, Weltanschauung and Zeitgeist hold important positions in our lexicon. To add to the list of expressive Germanisms: Bierleichen, literally translating to â&#x20AC;&#x153;beer corpses,â&#x20AC;? people so full of the foamy stuff that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even move.

Besides offering its seasonal Oktoberfest Lager, a week of schnitzel and strudel and a big olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; German pig roast, Silverado Brewing Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oktober Fest â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09 lets its guests party like Rhineland rock stars (e.g., David Hasselhoff) with a night of German club music. This event, including an appearance by the Jager girls and ample techno, caps off a week of events such as a traditional Bavarian Beer Hall night and a ďŹ ve-course Brewerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dinner with Silveradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners and brew masters. Silveradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weeklong fest blitzes Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 29â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct. 4; club night, Oct. 2. Silverado Brewing Co., 3020 St. Helena Hwy., St. Helena. $29.50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$65. 707.967.9876. http://oktoberfestsbc.blogspot.com. Why not get pleasantly besoffen for a cause? The Sonoma County Museum hotly anticipates its Big Oktoberfest Bash II, a fundraiser for the museum with loads of microbrew tasting from the breweries Lagunitas, Russian River, Third Street Ale Works, Moonlight, Marin Brewing Co. and Moylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Live music from indie rockers Crazy Famous, the Spindles and DJ Paul Timberman will keep the already spinning room moving. Monogrammed beer glasses come with tickets for the Bash on Friday, Oct. 9, at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building. 1351 Maple Ave., Santa Rosa. 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$40. 707.579.1500, ext. 13. With loads of sauerkraut, WĂźrstel and Käsespätzle, Napa will be pumping with polka and high sodium levels for the ďŹ rst ever Napa Valley Oktoberfest, a day-long event of music, food and brewskies. Onstage will be the Deutscher Musikverein of San Francisco, the Al Gruber Band and Grass Child. Imported Spaten as well as local favorites like Downtown Brown will be ďŹ&#x201A;owing from the taps on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Napa Valley Expo. 575 Third St., Napa. 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;10pm. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15, free to anyone in full German costume. 707.256.3200. In case our collective cup isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already runningeth over, Barley and Hops Tavernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Second Annual Oktoberfest brings more German food, more German music and way more lederhosen and dirndl-wearing volk. The tavern hosts three nights of special festival menus and extended hours with music by Tami Gosnell and authentic beer steins. Raise that stein and watch out for the dreaded day-after katzenjammer on Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Oct. 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4. Barley and Hops Tavern, 3688 Bohemian Hwy., Occidental. 707.874.9037. Prost!

EXTENSIVE WINE SELECTION

Expect to see loads of beer corpses soon, because October gives us another German word to watch out for: Oktoberfest. The North Bay is hopping with lederhosen-clad goodness. Here are some of der Beste.

Slender is sweetened with ZeroseÂŽ (courtesy of Cargill), otherwise known as the tongue-twisting erythritol, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;natural sweetenerâ&#x20AC;? that the winery assures is easily eliminated by the body. That makes me feel all warm inside already. When the Oscar press release announced the swag bag, wine blogs enjoyed a predictable round of sniggering. But these folks forgot Winetasting Rule No. 1: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knock it until you try it.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here, a most helpful innovation. How did we manage without it? Instead of simply rejoicing and reaching for said consumable, restless and overly ruminative persons might ask, who needs sugar-free wine? Never you mind. This concept ďŹ&#x201A;ies above the noggin yet below the upturned nose, and it aims straight at the waistline.

Slender is billed as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only sugar-free sweet wine. Somehow (through years of diligent research), somewhere (PlainďŹ eld, Ind.), someone (Dr. Charles R.

Such choice placement garnered instant buzz.

alk about begging the question! With Slender wine, the question is not even asked; rather, it is impliedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;occult and unwelcome. But the answer makes a lot of sense, as long as we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think too hard about it: Where are all the sugar-free wines?

So I tried it. The NV Slender White ($10.99) was the clear favorite, with simple fruit-cocktail ďŹ&#x201A;avors of pineapple and guava on a sweet, sweet ďŹ nish. Poured over a mountain of ice in a tumbler, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly tolerable. The NV Slender Blush ($10.99), the color of salmon, with aromas of the leftovers and ďŹ&#x201A;avors of strawberry jam served on a wool sweater left out in the rain, is unfortunate. The end. What with the surplus of quality bulk wine these days, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difďŹ cult to understand the NV Slender Red ($10.99), although the sweetish mĂŠlange of blackberries and peanuts repeatedly run over by forklifts on a cellar ďŹ&#x201A;oor was not entirely unpleasant; with some air, it acquired the somewhat vinous aroma of a DAP addition in fermenting wine, with Superfood notes. Chateau Thomas also makes dry wine from refrigerated grapes shipped in from Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even Carneros Pinot Noir. They have awards, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ ne. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disturbing about the Slender line is its message: This wine will make you thin, like the silhouette woman on the label sashaying toward you like 1980s clip-art decal from the dry cleanerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s window. The premise is as vapid and disingenuous, because the majority of table wines contain negligible sugar to begin with. Detectable sweetness may equal less than four calories, from sugar, per glass. Does that even merit a Weight Watchers point? The calories, of course, are in the alcohol: 100 per glass, give or take. Ultra-ripe, sweet German wines might add 100 more calories per glassâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; but, tut mir leid, Slender is no Trockenbeerenauslese. There might be a place for sugar-free, delicious, lateharvest elixirs, but these donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ ll it. To be fair, I did not taste the bottles blind, wrapped up in a brown paper bag. Perhaps that was a mistake, because the couture would be most beďŹ tting. Chateau Thomas, 6291 Cambridge Way, PlainďŹ eld, Indiana. 317.837.9463. Slender is available in California from www.vinoshipper.com.

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sweltering day in Tracy. Summer behind bars at Deuel Vocational Institution smells like sweat, bleach and old orange peels. Clifford Bair, a white-haired, goateed first-degree murdererâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a liferâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;perches under a barred windowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light and talks about the day 25 years ago in Bodega Bay when he tied up Theresa Aiken and Rose Fomasi with electrical wire and left them to die. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been up for three days drinking and doing speed,â&#x20AC;? says the 64-year-old convict. Remembering his crime against Aiken specifically, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;After I tied her up, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it, but I found her keys in a bowl by the door. I took her car and I left. All I had wanted was to take her car. I remember the detective telling me Miss Aiken had died in the night. I wanted to die, too. I still do.â&#x20AC;? To hear him tell it, many decisions and circumstances led his younger selfâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;strung-out, self-loathing and addicted to methâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to the front

door of the 86-year-old Aiken, known warmly as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother of Bodega Bay,â&#x20AC;? that day in 1984. And since then, many more decisions have been made by inmate Bair and by the state institutions charged with â&#x20AC;&#x153;correcting and rehabilitatingâ&#x20AC;? him. Bair, according to Deuel Vocational Institution (DVI) spokesman Lt. Gilbert Valenzuela, is like a majority of lifers over 40 years old, â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the good ones.â&#x20AC;? Enrolled in classes, active in a prisonbased job, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s padded his rĂŠsumĂŠ for 25 years in hopes of wresting freedom from Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Parole Hearings (BPH). Yet despite his efforts at rehabilitation, he has little chance of becoming a free man. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the board grants parole to fewer than 1 percent of lifers who are eligible, and those that are paroled are usually denied later by the governor. Denying parole to eligible inmates without proving that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shown continued signs of criminal behavior, however, is a direct violation of state law. And at a time when 2.3 million American adults are incarcerated and California is leading the way with 170,000 of them, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

prison system is at a breaking point and many are pushing for major reforms to the parole process thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keeping lifers doing life.

The Rising Tide In America, one in 10 prison inmates is serving a life sentence. In California, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one in five. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come for a handful of different reasons: theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve killed, kidnapped or raped. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve committed treason or sponsored terrorism. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve robbed or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dealt drugs more than twice and copped a â&#x20AC;&#x153;three strikesâ&#x20AC;? life sentence. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve racked up additional charges while incarcerated. They are black, white, Latino, Asian and Native American, though in California, blacks and Latinos make up 68 percent of lifers. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 90 years old or 14 years old, tried as adults. Though many are hardened criminals, for some the difference between a cell door and a white picket fence is nothing more than an angry moment and a weapon. ') THE BOHEMIAN

Santa Cruz County District Attorney Bob Lee has sought life sentences for dozens of criminals. He, like many law enforcement officials, believes â&#x20AC;&#x153;life is life,â&#x20AC;? and that murderers like Bair should not be judged on their decisions in prison but on the ones that got them there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crimes like murder are the most antisocial acts a person can commit,â&#x20AC;? Lee says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be thinking about the criminals who kill and kidnap, but about the victims that will never come back and their families who have to live without their loved ones forever.â&#x20AC;? Lee is far from alone. Californians typically vote in favor of almost every proposed law that imposes tougher sentences for convicts. Just last year, voters passed Proposition 9, which allows the BPH to extend the time a lifer can go between hearings from one year to as many as 15 years. Many a politician has launched a career campaigning on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough on crimeâ&#x20AC;? platform. Many others have lost it when the public sensed softness. Former California governor Gray Davis famously said that the only way a murderer would leave prison on his watch was â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a pine box.â&#x20AC;? He allowed parole for a mere eight convicts during his four years in office. Gov. Schwarzenegger tried to reverse this policy, and in his first year released 72 lifers. After a vicious backlash from victims rights groups, however, he scaled back the releases to about 30 per year. Today, with Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prisons operating at 200 percent capacity and a broken healthcare system killing an inmate a week, the state is facing orders from a federal panel of judges to cut down its inmate population by 4o,000 prisoners over the next two years; the state responded last week by offering to cut 23,000 inmates. The panel went so far as to label the prisons â&#x20AC;&#x153;unconstitutionalâ&#x20AC;? due to negligent healthcare that made conditions â&#x20AC;&#x153;cruel and unusual.â&#x20AC;? It will be low-level violent, nonviolent and drug offenders who will likely benefit most from the orders to cut prison populations. Yet with Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nationtopping 70 percent recidivism rate, most, before long, will end up right back in prison. In contrast, the recidivism rate for lifers who are paroled drops to about 20 percent. Government orders and statistics alone, however, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fix the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broken system. And there are few people, and very few important people, who are willing to go to bat for a convicted criminal, much less a lifer.

In Their Corner Some, however, do stand up for lifers. Daniel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Naneâ&#x20AC;? Alejandrez is one of them. A short, soft-spoken man, usually seen in his trademark dark beret and Locs-style sunglasses, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best known for founding the Latino community outreach group Barrios Unidos. Born to a migrant farmworker family and drafted by the Army to fight in the Vietnam War, Alejandrez came back from combat in 1971 hooked on heroin and to a family deeply entrenched in gangs, drugs and violence. Yet even as he weaned himself

24

09.23.09-09.29.09

from drugs, he began to speak out for peaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; both on the streets and in the prisons. Since Barrios Unidos launched in 1977, Alejandrez has been on hand for some of the most important moments in Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Latino story. Now, along with reaching out to troubled youth, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made the plight of the lifers of DVI, Solano, Vacaville, Soledad, Pleasant Valley and Jamestown one of his causes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want people to see [lifers] as peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;people who made mistakes, but people who can change as well,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many of them have done everything they can to help themselves and rehabilitate. But none of that seems to matter, because the parole boards just say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Great work, but your crime was too severe.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? On this blistering day at DVI, he joins a team of professors, activists, authors and social workers for a class on â&#x20AC;&#x153;transcommunal cooperationâ&#x20AC;? and an organized debate among inmates on the parole priorities of nonviolent drug offenders vs. parole-eligible lifers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the governor was given the power to review decisions made by the parole board, you can see that parole approvals essentially stopped,â&#x20AC;? says inmate Michael DeVries, who, like many long-term inmates, has become a legal expert on issues surrounding his case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a case of ex post facto, which means laws were passed after the fact that I, and a lot of other people I see in this room, committed their crimes. I liken it to a sports analogy of moving the goal post.â&#x20AC;? The debate continues inside the DVI community room for another hour. The lifers, most sporting reading glasses, hold handwritten notes in their hands and speak in the slow, measured cadence of men in their 50s and 60s. The crude tattoos of Virgin Marys, tear drops and number 13s that adorn some of their exposed forearms have faded over time into cloudy blotches of black and navy blue. The researchers jot endlessly in their notebooks, attention rapt on the real-life social experiment playing out before them. The discourse is civil, and no one interrupts or speaks out of turn. Time, as one lifer explains, is something each has in abundance, and patience, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is something you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but learn on a life sentence.â&#x20AC;? The class, nearing the end of its second year, was not an idea hatched in social academia, but by the inmates themselves, a fact that astounds many of the researchers, given the hardened racial lines that exist in every prison in America. As the class ends, however, any thoughts of freedom are dashed as the inmates are herded off, strip-searched and sent back to their cells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Single file,â&#x20AC;? a guard says sternly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know the drill.â&#x20AC;?

Then & Now Nixon was president, disco was the new rage and gas was 40 cents a gallon when Paul Hyde came to prison in 1973. Having killed a shoe-store owner with a stray bullet during a gang-related gunfight in Los Angeles, he was handed a life sentence for first-degree murder. Hyde became eligible for parole in 1980. Since then, despite a relatively clean discipline record and an extensive rehabilitation rĂŠsumĂŠ, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been denied parole 22 times.

THE BOHEMIAN



â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was 19 years old when they told me I was going to prison for life,â&#x20AC;? says Hyde, a tall, clean-cut, 55-year-old African American with a shaky voice and watery eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never get over taking someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, and the man I killed will never come back. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. Now I have 14 trades, I have my [high school] diploma, I have 83 college units. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put myself in every possible program I can, but every time, they just tell me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sorry, but your crime was too bad.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Denying a parole applicant solely on the basis of the original crime, however, is illegal under California law. As mandated by the Dannenberg California Supreme Court decision of 2005, aspects of rehabilitation must weigh into a parole boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. Though not limited to them, the five major factors involved in a parole decision are listed by the BPH as â&#x20AC;&#x153;counseling reports, behavior in prison, vocational and educational accomplishments, involvement in self-help therapy, and parole plans.â&#x20AC;? The 2005 ruling also says that any lifer who is denied parole based on his or her original crime must be proven to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;aggravated factsâ&#x20AC;? beyond the crime that makes him or her a continuing threat to society. Evidence suggests that the stingy approval rates handed down by the BPH are no accident. During Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early days in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s, parole boards were made up of not only prison and law enforcement officials but teachers, doctors and others representing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;community at large.â&#x20AC;? Then, almost every felon received an indeterminate sentence and was released when the parole board deemed he was ready. Now, Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12-person BPH boasts a membership made up entirely of current and former law enforcement officials. All are registered Republicans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fixed game,â&#x20AC;? says Hyde. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get told Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing all the right things, so why am I not suitable for parole?â&#x20AC;? Hyde says he gets by on one thing: hope. Hope that his classes and in-prison work efforts will catch the eye of BPH commissioners. Hope that, if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s released, someone will give him a job. And hope that both he and the family of the man he killed will find resolution in the price heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid behind bars. But the hope that their parole hearings will end in any other way than a flat denial seems far-fetched. For lifers like Hyde, no matter how many steps they take toward rehabilitation, the heinousness of their original crime is always the bottom line in their denial reports.

Life Row Documents provided by inmates and by the California Department of Corrections show that lifers are often denied parole with none of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;aggravated factsâ&#x20AC;? required under the Dannenberg legal precedent. In Bairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, one parole decision transcript thanks him for â&#x20AC;&#x153;a number of self-help programming . . . substance abuse, alternatives to violence, AA, anger management [classes] . . . and a plumbing [and welding] vocational work programs,â&#x20AC;? before it goes on to deny him because

â&#x20AC;&#x153;the prisoner committed the offense in an especially cruel manner.â&#x20AC;? Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case is similar. Documents show dozens of classes taken, certificates earned and jobs maintained. Getting caught with a dagger 20 years ago is a stain on his incustody record, but he hopes the board will overlook it on account of his two decades of good behavior and make his upcoming hearing lucky number 23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came to prison, I had a thirdgrade education. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even run a carwash,â&#x20AC;? Hyde says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I run millions of dollarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of machinery every day in the electrostatic powder coating shop. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m totally employable. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a changed man, and I think I deserve a chance to show it.â&#x20AC;?

month after the organized debate at DVI over who deserves parole, the lifer class is together once again on a slightly cooler dayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this time for a graduation celebration. Chuckles fill the air, smiles abound and hugs are the preferred greeting as the aging inmates receive certificates of completion and feast on cake and shrimp cocktail brought in by Alejandrez and other volunteers. For teachers like John Brown Childs, the completion of the course is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;living example of positive human potential.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liken what I see in these men to a Zen riddle,â&#x20AC;? Childs says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I saw a slave, but then I realized it was actually a person held in slavery.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It means you can look at someone and think you know exactly what they represent, but you have to look at them from a different point of view to really understand who they are and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their hearts.â&#x20AC;? Whether Californians consciously care about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the hearts of their convicts or not, there is no question that they are heavily invested in just that. With $9.8 billion in state funds set aside for the Department of Corrections in the next year, prison spending makes up 10 percent of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, even after $1.2 billion in emergency cuts mandated in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slashed state budget. The mood inside DVI suggests that the inmates feel the change coming as well. Most of them chatter about rumors that friends may be going home or that appeals may be accepted. Alejandrez feels it too. While agreeing with inmates that things may be looking up, he cautions them to stay vigilant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state has got to do something,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finally dug themselves so far down that they have to start climbing back out. I just hope they take a look at guys like these lifers, people who have earned a right to a second chance.â&#x20AC;? As the graduation ceremony ends and eager inmates dutifully collect the frosting dotted paper plates and soda cans into trash bags, prison spokesman Valenzuela takes the microphone to offer a test to the men. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a challenge for you,â&#x20AC;? says the career guard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to see you take the lessons you learned about working together and use them out in the yard.â&#x20AC;? Most of the inmates agree that race relations in the prison yard will likely stay as segregated as they are now. Instead, each hopes he can use the skills in a more exotic location: outside the prison walls.

his hilly Sebastopol neighborhood is just like any other. As a peaceful quiet settles into the afternoon air, a passerby would never suspect that anything out of the ordinary goes on in any of these suburban homes. So naturally the large, metal contraption named The Screaming Vortexâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a Willy Wonkaesque machine with counter-rotating fan bladesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that fills up Andy Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driveway has attracted many curious spectators. Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiancĂŠ, Alexis Bauer, is sweeping the driveway as I pull up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just inside. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be out in a minute,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to clean up a little around here.â&#x20AC;? Graham emerges from the house in blue jeans and a camouf lage T-shirt. Surrounding this thin, soft-spoken man, a creative energy f lows. Graham is an entrepreneur, a go-getter, a schemer. He makes his living as a musician and toolmaker at Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Hydroponics. Fusing these talents together, his life work is spent as inventor with an eye for the mechanical past, representing an era of invention that America has nearly forgotten.

Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation, The Screaming Vortex, which sits stoically spinning in the wind in front of us, is near completion for the upcoming Handcar Regatta, taking place in downtown Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad Square on Sept. 27. The historically infused event, now in its second year, is a compilation of handcar races down the area railroad tracks, live performances and local artistic crafts and curiosities, all wrapped together with a turn-ofthe-century Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair steampunk aesthetic unlike any arts exposition in the North Bay. Last year, Graham took first place at the Regatta for speed with his four-wheeled rail bike. Not two days afterward, he was busy at work on the Vortex, drawing out plans on the computer, gathering the basic dimensions and then letting the design work f low organically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of my first projects that ever combined electric fans and trains,â&#x20AC;? Graham says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really kind of a culmination of all of my favorite things.â&#x20AC;? A self-proclaimed â&#x20AC;&#x153;electric-fan nut,â&#x20AC;? Graham says that besides the anticipation of the Regatta, building the Vortex was mostly an excuse to construct giant fan blades, an odd fascination that began at a young age.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a picture of me in front of the Queen Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s propeller as a kid. Apparently, I had a fit and made my parents pull over to take a picture of me next to it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been attracted to propellers and fans for reasons I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know,â&#x20AC;? he says with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took everything apart when I was a kid, including my brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watch and my auntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s washing machine. I was so young that they thought I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even use tools.â&#x20AC;? His fixation with taking things apart soon developed into a passion for learning to put them back together again. After high school, Graham worked for a high-end bicycle company and learned many different trades in metalworking. Once he became skilled at welding, the ideas began to surge. Using his hands to build things from the ground up sky-rocketed him into the futureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as well as the past. Graham used his winnings from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Regatta to purchase scrap metal for The Screaming Vortex, whose name will become evident once whistles are attached to the ends of the six-winged fan blades, creating a haunting screech as it traverses down the tracks.

he steps inside the machine to demonstrate its function. The Vortex is designed for four people, two facing backward and two facing forward. Each pair will pedal the giant fans, harnessing the power of the wind through human-powered aeropropulsion drive, or HPAPD, an acronym Graham created to coincide with the mythical story of the Vortexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mythical past. As the tall tale goes, Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatgrandfather, James McIntosh Graham, envisioned a future of transportation run on human power, rather than clunky, polluting trains. Graham senior was to have designed the concept for The Screaming Vortex in 1908, and Graham junior says that he â&#x20AC;&#x153;foundâ&#x20AC;? the drawing plans in his greatgrandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toolbox, deciding he would carry out the task his forbearer never did. This embellished fable serves not only to link the Vortex to the past, but nods at the playfulness of the steampunk aesthetic, which represents the turn-of-the-lastcentury curiosity with emerging mechanics, when the future of transportation was exciting and in many ways uncertain. Graham feels that the world today, overly concerned as it is with convenience and reliability, has turned us into a mechanically disposable society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way things are designed now, we even do things like hide nuts and bolts and fasteners,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, a bolt head is a beautiful thing. Nowadays we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even want to see the fact that it was built. We just want to know it exists.â&#x20AC;? Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website for the project, www.screamingvortex.com, calls his invention the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building of a Dream,â&#x20AC;? which he says is a throwback to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fake great-grandfatherâ&#x20AC;? story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think it is kind of your dream to live a life where you can create whacky shit for no reason?â&#x20AC;? Bauer asks, smiling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, definitely. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a double meaning there,â&#x20AC;? Graham replies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This whole thing is really my own dream. Being able to do stuff like this and actually come up with an idea and then be able to stand here looking at is one of the most satisfying things. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cool.â&#x20AC;? The Regattaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto of curiosity and imaginative ingenuity or â&#x20AC;&#x153;playticipation,â&#x20AC;? is something both Graham and Bauer hope will continue into this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Regatta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most exciting things about the Regatta. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all the creative people in one place itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost overwhelming. The people there are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;doers,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Graham says. Standing next to him, nodding her head, Bauer adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really think people need to get out of their hobbit holes and go into the sunshine and have that excitement of seeing things that were built for no damn reason.â&#x20AC;? Spring Maxfield, who cofounded the Regatta with designer Ty Jones, is also quick to stress that keeping the past alive through this event is just as much about keeping Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique art scene alive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sonoma County desperately needs something that represents the

counterculture that is not represented by any of the other public events in the community, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also accessible to everybody even in mainstream community,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m bound to Sonoma County and I love it here. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m raising my kids here. But I was frustrated that this counterculture was not accessible.

As the tall tale goes, Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great-grandfather . . . A lot of my friends were moving away to be in more culturally hip areas, and I thought, why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we manifest it here?â&#x20AC;? With the intention of promoting the philosophy that everyone in each quadrant of society has access to art, the Regatta remains a free event for the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided that we wanted to bring attention to this space in Railroad Square that gets overlooked by the community and create something that was participatory and that people would want to come back to over and over again,â&#x20AC;? Maxfield says. Because of the Regattaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overwhelming popularity last year, with close to 5,000 attendees, Maxfield predicts the numbers to jump to around 7,000 this year, now that word of mouth and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;playticipationâ&#x20AC;? bug has spread. A wide array of vendors, artists, entertainers and veterans from Burning Man are expected to participate, showcasing everything they have to offer. This year the excitement also spreads to racing, with 22 race teams (nine more than last year) utilizing both sets of tracks to battle it out against each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;steampunk-style. Yet for Andy Graham, the Regatta is not all about competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a lifestyle more than anything,â&#x20AC;? Graham says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, building things like this is always a hobby, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a passion. I always need to have a project like this going. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of been part of my whole lifestyle, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you say, Alexis?â&#x20AC;? he asks her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to know when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go camping,â&#x20AC;? she replies in a sarcastic exhale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will,â&#x20AC;? he chuckles. After the Regatta, Graham plans on sawing the Vortex in half, turning it into a pontoon boat and taking some time to f loat down the river in peace. Then heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably start on next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project. The second annual Handcar Regatta in downtown Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad Square takes place on Sunday, Sept. 27, from 11am to 6pm. Live music and performance from 11am. Between Fourth Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Depot Park and Wilson Street. Free. 707.526.5315. www.handcar-regatta.com.

God, painting and service take center stage in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Asher Levâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By David Templeton

or many people of faith, God is a mystery, a divine longing, a sacred path that must be traveled with all of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart and mind. To deny God is damnation. For most serious painters, musicians and writers, the very same things can be said of their art. To those who possess the drive to create, the compulsion is every bit as mysterious, every bit as â&#x20AC;&#x153;divine,â&#x20AC;? as the ancient traditions and sense of community that sustain the faithful and bring meaning to their lives. In the case of the painter-prodigy protagonist of Chaim Potokâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved novel My Name Is Asher Lev, both God and art have claimed his soul. For many artists, this would be ideal, but for a great number of Hassidic Jews, the pursuit of God and art is not merely impossible, it is dangerous. In Aaron Posnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensitive stage adaptation of the novel, now playing in an already extended run at the Marin Theatre Company, Asher (Peter Stadlen) sets up the central conflict of the play with grippingly succinct opening monologue: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My name is Asher Lev. The Asher Lev. The Asher Lev who painted the Brooklyn Crucifixions. Observant Jews do not paint crucifixions. Observant Jews do not paint at all.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Name Is Asher Levâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Oct. 11 at Marin Theatre Company, 397 Miller Ave., Mill Valley.

Potok himself knew the struggle of art against religion. As a young man, raised within a strict but loving community of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Torah Jews,â&#x20AC;? Potok once pursued the life of a painter, even producing a notably scandalous crucifixion. It was as a writer, though, that Potok would make his name, spinning tale after tale of previously hidden Jewish life, regularly tackling the issues of conflict and faith, personal expression and commitment to community that so defined his own life. In The Chosen, perhaps his best-known book, Potok tells of a Hassidic boy drawn to the secular pursuits of academia and psychology. In Asher Lev, his most personal novel, the struggles are even closer to home. With this new stage adaptation, Posner, who also adapted The Chosen a few years back, puts those struggles front and center, creating a play that is as dramatic, intense and entertaining as it is philosophically rich and crammed with juicy insights. Posnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spare and lovely script is mirrored by Melpomene Katakalosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hypnotically simple set: a few simple wooden beams set at perfectly orchestrated angles, ready to tumble should the center of balance be shifted or shaken. As Asher, Stadlen deftly shifts from a child of four, happily sketching everything he sees around him, to a conflicted teenager, to an upand-coming young man, the new toast of New York City. With pages and pages of poetic monologue to deliver, Stadlen never falters, at times channeling the distinct charm and wideeyed vocal clarity of a young Matthew Broderick. Playing all the women, but primarily Asherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Danielle Levin is sensational, giving every line layers of meaning, turning every facial expression into an unguarded confession. Reacting to news that her brother has died, Levinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scream of grief, anger and anguish was so authentic Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised the police didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately raid the theater. Patrick McNulty, playing all of the men in Asherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, is equally strong, especially as Asherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, a hard-working man of faith, devoted to spreading the teaching of his communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rabbi. In other hands, Asherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father might have been a simple, strict-minded tyrant, but as played by McNulty, the inherent decency of the man in never lost. In fact, one of the miracles of the play is the way Asherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents grow in understanding and compassion, even as Asher grows less tolerant and more judgmental of them. The moment where the teenage Asher accuses his father of â&#x20AC;&#x153;aesthetic blindnessâ&#x20AC;? is especially wonderful, since we see how blind Asher has become to his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; desire to truly understand their son. Gorgeously written and strongly acted, My Name Is Asher Lev is a tight, wonderfully complex knot of contradictions, clashes and hard-won compromisesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;right up to the last line. That line, delivered by Asher as a final summation of who he is, where his art has brought him and the impact his choices have had on his family, is an absolute stunnerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; lyrical, truthful and devastating.

The Sonoma County Jewish Film Fest looks to the past for inspiration By Daniel Hirsch

n early scene in Fugitive Pieces, featured as the first film in the Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival, shows its protagonist, Jakob, tenderly holding a manuscript with the weighty title Bearing False Witness: History and Memory. This is a film that deals with the legacy of the Holocaust, but as Jakobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manuscript suggests, it is less about the grisly events of history and more about what it means to remember them. In recent years, considerable cynicism has surrounded any film dealing with the Holocaust. With the tremendous glut of works that draw on the Naziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atrocitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Reader, Defiance, Valkyrie, The Pianist and so onâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and their generally high rate of winning Oscars, the backlash makes some sense. However, director Jeremy Podeswaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fugitive Pieces, based on Anne Michaelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; acclaimed novel of the same name, addresses why we have so many films

that look back at the horrors of the past. For some, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no other choice. Fugitive Pieces jumps around in time and space throughout an entire life. The film begins with Jakob as a boy in Poland witnessing the brutal abduction of his family by Nazi soldiers, and travels with him as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discovered by an archeologist and relocated to Greece and eventually Canada, where he struggles as young writer coping with his early trauma. Through the ref lexive gaze of the adult Jakob, played with terrific composure by English actor Stephen Dillane (Thomas Jefferson in HBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Adams), we see that trying to bear witness to the past often means an inability to live in the present; that loving those we have lost can prevent us from loving those who are right in front of us. Unlike other films that walk similar thematic and historical ground, Fugitive Pieces takes an incredibly delicate and subtle approach to historical tragedy and personal loss. With its quietness and lack of real drama, Fugitive Pieces slipped by without much attention when it was released in 2008, and certainly no nods from Oscar. Maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a film thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less about how people are killed and die, and more about how we should try to live. Fugitive Pieces screens Sept. 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 1. Other entries to the SCJFF also delve into that difficult space of history and remembering. The documentary Waves of Freedom consists of interviews with some of the surviving 27 American volunteers who, in 1947, sailed in a dilapidated ship containing 1,500 Holocaust survivors past a British blockade of Palestine. Waves of Freedom, screening Oct. 6 and 8, also consists of archival footage and interviews with British navy men who were ordered to stop this small mission at all costs. The festival turns its retrospective eye on 1960s London in the coming-of-age drama Wondrous Oblivion. This film tells the story of David Wiseman, a Jewish teenager who more than anything wants to play cricket like a pro. This adolescent dream and his neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homogenous tranquility get disrupted when a Jamaican family moves in next door. Screening Dec. 1 and 3, Wondrous Oblivion takes a complicated and thoughtful look at race, religion, immigrants and, of course, cricket. Other films in the SCJFF include The Debt, a thriller about Rachel Berner, an Israeli agent set to assassinate a former Nazi (Oct. 20 and 22); Refusenik, a documentary about the American grassroots movement to free Soviet Jews (Nov. 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;5); and Blessed Is the Match, which documents the story of Hannah Senesh, a Hungarian Jewish poet, resistance fighter and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Israeli Joan of Arcâ&#x20AC;? (Nov. 10 and 12). For these films, the past hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even begun to pass. The Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival starts its 14th season with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fugitive Piecesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at Rialto Cinemas Lakeside. 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 7:15pm. Season passes are $54â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$66. 707.528.4222. www.jccsoco.org.

A Life in Theater

Great Day for America

At age 79, Stephen Sondheim has seen it all, from commercial successes like Sweeney Todd to underappreciated f lops like Anyone Can Whistle. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in Hollywood, on Broadway, off Broadway, studied under Oscar Hammerstein, collaborated with Richard Rodgers, served as president of the Directors Guild, raked in royalties for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Send in the Clowns,â&#x20AC;? and now, at the end of it all, he rests. And talks. If Sondheim had only written the lyrics to West Side Story, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a household name, but consider Gypsy, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music and the brilliant Assassins, and it all adds up. He is, without a doubt, a Broadway legend, and he appears in a conversation with acclaimed director Peter Stein to display his verbal genius and discuss a distinguished career on Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $49â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$69. 707.546.3600.

Amusing the amnesiac drunks of the world while they slobber Stoufferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinners on themselves in the middle of the night isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea of a great job. But to Craig Ferguson, it caps a long journey from a young punk rocker in Glasgow, Scotland, to construction worker to bouncer to modern dancer, and finally, to taking the place of Craig Kilborn as host of CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Late Late Show. Fergusonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new memoir, American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot, chronicles that journey, with a lot of alcohol and cocaine along the way, but what emerges from the haze is a humble, funny man who very desperately wanted to become an American. He achieved citizenship in 2008, and wears a red, white and blue kilt on the cover of his books and, one would guess, whenever else he can. He appears on Saturday, Sept. 26, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. Noon. Free. 415.927.0960.

Chasinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mason What do you say if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an artist used to playing large places like the Fox Theater in Boulder, the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn or the El Rey theater in Los Angeles when a Santa Rosa radio station asks if you want to play a free show on a one-foot high stage at a downtown brewpub? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Mason Jennings, you say yes. The Minnesota songwriter has just released his seventh album, Blood of Man, and in describing it, he writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wrote about how hard it is to be 34 and be a parent and sane and married and true and positive and yourself and a man and funny and a decent person and a not decent person and human and in love.â&#x20AC;? His appearance continues a tradition of KRSH 95.9-FM bringing artists from Jack Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brushfire Records roster to town for free concerts, and it all goes down on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at the Russian River Brewing Company. 725 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. Noon. 707.545.2337.

Shut Up, Donny Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way of life. Am I wrong? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Big Lebowski,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which screens this week in the small confines of the Cameo Cinema, is fast joining the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls as a lifestyle bible for its most devoted, white-Russian-drinking followers, and the one-screen movie theater may never be the same. As the official Lebowski Fest makes its way across the country this September, Napa Valley duderinos have the chance to abide en masse and recite classic lines together back at the screen, and there are oh-so-many of them. Will bowling balls be rolled down the aisles with nihilists? Will someone have the guts to stand outside the theater with a ghetto blaster, playing the Eagles? Will anyone ever finally find a rug that really ties a room together? Discover greatness when the cult favorite screens on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at Cameo Cinema. 1340 Main St., St. Helena. 8pm. $5. 707.963.9779.

Earle Fest returns for second year with local Americana lineup ith the current economic conditions, we knew we needed something bigger. Music is about as broad-based as you can get,â&#x20AC;? says Phil Swetin, development director for the Earle Baum Center of the Blind. Since 2008, Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only area agency dedicated to serving people with sight loss has focused fundraising efforts around Earle Fest, a music festival billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Celebration of Americana Music.â&#x20AC;? Set for Sept. 26, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Earle Fest offers lower ticket prices and a focus on the North Bay music sceneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wide-ranging talent. All proceeds from the event go to the Earle Baum Center general fund, helping to provide services to those who might not otherwise have access to the rehabilitative resources available through the organization. Those who love good, old-fashioned Americana music will ďŹ nd much to celebrate in the festival offerings. Old Jawbone (above) bring their mandolin and banjoinfused tunes to the small stage, preceded by the teenaged bluegrass of those youth tutored by the late great Chip Dunbar, the Mighty Chiplings. The literate emotional soundscapes of the Trailer Park Rangers opens up the large stage, followed by the Mississippi Delta blues of Johnny Rawls and the Blues Defenders, among such other acts as Houston Jones, the Rhythm Rangers and Solid Air. A deďŹ nitively local affair, Lagunitas will be pouring microbrews, and the Santa Rosa Junior College culinary group plans on offering sandwiches and other fare for a small fee. Swetin hopes to see a repeat of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendees, a sign of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;integratedâ&#x20AC;? community that he says the Earle Baum Center prides itself on cultivating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 10-year-olds. We had 90-year-olds. We had people in the peak of health. We had people with severe disabilities,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody seemed to join together, break bread, listen to music. It really had the feel of community.â&#x20AC;? With a diverse lineup of seasoned musicians alongside young up-and-comers, Swetin believes the event will appeal to a broad range of musical tastes and ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel that we will grow the crowds over the coming years. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see this as an annual tradition in Sonoma County,â&#x20AC;? he says with an optimistic smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an opportunity for it. There is a demand for it.â&#x20AC;? Earle Fest kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Earle Baum Center. 4539 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa. Gates open at noon. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$18; under 10, free. 707.523.3222.

F74A4C74F8;3C78=6B0A4 The stories collected in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gimme Something Better,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; like those of Fangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sam McBride, above, are unflinchingly honest.

New Bay Area punk history chronicles the sound of a new world being born By Gabe Meline

6

imme Something Better has it all: dead dogs, statutory rape, skinhead fights, the origins of the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;emo,â&#x20AC;? promoters accidentally taking acid in jail, M-80s, soup lines, people falling through skylights, people getting torched with flamethrowers, teenagers on meth squatting in empty beer vats, exhumed bodies, laundromats, Ford Pintos, murderers and millionaires. There are also some parts about bands. Destined to go down as the definitive history of Bay Area punk rock, the 500-page tome is excellently presented in oral history form, with first-person tales from hundreds of people both world-famous and virtually unknown. Beginning at the seminal San Francisco venues of Mabuhay Gardens and the On Broadway with the Avengers, the Nuns and Crime, and moving chronologically through the Dead Kennedys, DRI, MDC and Fang before heading via Maximum RocknRoll to the East Bay and 924 Gilman, Operation Ivy, Green Day, Rancid and AFI, Gimme Something Better: The Profound, Progressive, and Occasionally Pointless History of Bay Area Punk from Dead Kennedys to Green Day ($18; Penguin Books) digs beyond the wellknown legends and into the small, everyday personal stories that together created a vibrant, instigative and fascinating scene. Those who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t around will read it and wish they had been; those who were there will only wish that the book was longer. But why now? In a coast-to-coast conference call, authors Silke Tudor in New York City and Jack Boulware in San Francisco explain that they discovered the time was right for people to tell their story with both proper perspective and clarity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It managed to hit at a really good time, when all the

multiple generations of punks had begun to discuss these things among themselves again,â&#x20AC;? Tudor says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Organically, there was already this urge to look back and develop ideas around what happened, and it was happening in small, small pockets.â&#x20AC;? Not that there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plenty of talk as the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most legendary events were happening. Numerous books have covered the Sex Pistolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last show at Winterland. Everyone heard about the show where the Misfits smashed a guitar over a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head. Numerous zines covered the Frankenchrist trial, the beginnings of Lookout Records and Tim Yohannonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crusade against the unpunk music of the world, but Gimme Something Better is full of previously untapped context and color. Who knew, for example, that famed jazz saxophonist Stan Getz once showed up wasted to an Emetics show, played one drunken song with the band, and got a blowjob in the alley afterward? Originally titling the book Journey to the End of the East Bay, Tudor and Boulware set out to write only about 924 Gilman and its bands, both famous and infamous (Isocracy, the Naked Lady Wrestlers and Crimpshrine all have their own chapters). But â&#x20AC;&#x153;as we started interviewing people from the Gilman era,â&#x20AC;? Boulware says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;none of that started in a vacuum.â&#x20AC;? Tudor agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gilman reacted so strongly to other things that had happened to the Bay Area and punk in general,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were strong ideas that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have made sense without context. The goofiness, the rules that had come about were really strongly reacting to things that were happening in San Francisco.â&#x20AC;? By the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of a closed era in Bay Area punk. 924 Gilman is still going strong, and personal anecdotes

from Green Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billie Joe Armstrong and AFIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Davey Havok assert the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance. And yet the big event of the mid â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Green Day becoming hugeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;looms large over all the spray-paint stencils and safety pins, and the sensation of a rarified innocence lost, or sold, very nearly drips off the page. Collecting the interviews in Gimme Something Better was not without is challenges. Key people like David Hayes, John Kiffmeyer, Blake Schwarzenbach and Jake Sayles opted out, and a few, like Victor Hayden, Captain Beefheartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cousin and owner of Alchemy Records, were impossible to find. Still others required a year or more of prodding; the backing by Penguin Books raised the issue of the mainstream publishing company infiltrating the underground, and, Tudor says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went to some Gilman meetings and pled our case.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stress enough the responsibility we felt as we started doing this,â&#x20AC;? says Boulware, adding that four fact checkers read and reread hundreds of stories that are essentially products of peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes chemically stained memories. A chapter about Sam McBride, the singer of Fang who went to prison for murdering his girlfriend, was especially delicate. In the most comprehensive telling of the incident to date, McBride and his friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and enemiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are shockingly honest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were asking people to bear their souls, and bear some darker secrets and experiences that they had,â&#x20AC;? Tudor says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and people were so forthcoming, and so trusting and willing.â&#x20AC;? Hence, the format of the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one long series of interconnected quotesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has the feel of an elders council, and eliminates what Jesse Michaels, in the introduction, calls the â&#x20AC;&#x153;intellectual ownershipâ&#x20AC;? of a scene that rock writers usually know nothing about. Tudor, a former SF Weekly writer, is also a former skinhead, and she at times is hesitant to revisit her younger days in the Bay Area punk scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish that I had been inspired by Hillary Binder when I was a kid, or that I had gravitated to that more creative, resistance side of punk. But I was a furious, wasted, drunk, druggie kid,â&#x20AC;? she admits. (She now works at an anarchist hospitality house in the Lower East Side serving food to the homeless.) However, her perspective guided a selection of important elements of the Bay Area scene that other histories would be quick to dismiss as what the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subtitle calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;pointless.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pointlessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; adjective is something very quintessentially Bay Area, which is incredibly intelligent, intelligent kids or people building elaborate things for not a lot of payoff,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of effort, a lot of thinking, and it ends up being sort of a laugh. The Bay Area does that more than any other punk scene.â&#x20AC;? Boulware, who spent 10 years as a columnist for SF Weekly and cofounded San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Litquake festival, agrees that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for that idea of art for fuckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake in the Bay Area punk sceneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of Schlong covering the entire West Side Story album to a room of 30 people, for exampleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to get its due. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are all excited about computers and food now, but this is still a thriving subculture,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a very progressive, politicized part of the United States.â&#x20AC;? Boulware and Tudor celebrate the release of Gimme Something Better at a series of shows held at both the former On Broadway in San Francisco (Oct. 12) and 924 Gilman in Berkeley (Oct. 17).

Or, SWF seeks SM with clean background check and sense of humor t was the moth floating in my toilet that finally did it. Had my sex life become so arid that all I could attract were bugs that favor ill-kempt closets? After seeing me through yet another winter of sexual discontent, a trusted married friend suggested that I take charge of my love life, that I go where there were guaranteed to be men in search of a date and maybe a mate. She told me to go to a singles party. I arrived at the event, held at a local winery, with a fellow single thirty-something woman, and immediately felt anxious and out of place. The event was flooded with over 60 gorgeous, sharp, middle-aged women and about six or seven men grinning at the flock of ladies around them. After considering our chances of success, we found ourselves firmly planted in the tasting room for the next several hours wondering, yet again, how we would find available, compatible men our age in the small, often murky, malaria-breeding puddle that is the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles scene. In my many moons of solo life, I have kept my eyes inconspicuously peeled at book fairs, cafes, bars, art galleries, music festivals, social justice rallies, weddings, personal ads and even, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll admit it, funerals in hopes of meeting a half-way stable man. I have certainly had some luck, but more often than not, the encounters either crash and burn in a not-so-glorious blaze or blossom into great friendships instead of the passionate romances and dedicated partnerships that I would honestly prefer. Contrary to some of the media reports during National Singles Week, Sept. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;26, the unattached women I know are not desperate, lonely or bitter about being single. Most of us are whip-smart, witty, attractive, independent and completely amazing catches who are simply hoping that at some point weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cross paths with funny, smart and emotionally available men with relatively clean background checks. In addition to the high cost of living, this is one of the challenges of living in the North Bay. National Singles Week provides us with opportunities to get out there and meet the few great men who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already married to our friends. The variety of events include a Single Sangha on Friday, Sept. 25, at Spirit Rock (5000 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Woodacre; 7:30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;10pm; $15; 415.488.0164) and a wine and chocolate tasting along with cave tours sponsored by the Sonoma County Singles Wine Society on Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Kunde Family Estate (9825 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood; noon; $25; 707.833.5501). See you there? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the one wearing mothballs. Dani Burlison

A Fairfax festival with the body, soul and mind in mind hen it comes to health these days, there are a lot of reasons to be hysterical. The virus formerly known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;swine fluâ&#x20AC;? is gearing up for another year of possible pandemic conditions. The New York Times is making us read all that stuff about horribly contaminated drinking water rotting childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth. Things are bad, but if we all take a deep breath, maybe we can chill out and figure out how to live more healthy, happy lives. At least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the idea behind Fairfax Body & Soul, a communitycentric festival that celebrates health and wellness for the both mind and body. Sponsored by the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, Body & Soul aims to be fun for the whole community, with a jump house for the kids and ayurvedic cooking workshops for mom and dad. The festival also hopes to firmly support the health and wellness of the local economy, with free tickets going to anyone who patronizes nearby chamber of commerce businesses. Fairfax has long had a history of supporting health. Rock legends Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead are rumored to have played a rousing softball game at the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Field. Continuing this traditional confluence of wellness and great tunes, the festival includes a lineup of notable mellow folk-rock gems. Fingerpicking guitar maven Walter Strauss, who was once described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a one-man folk show,â&#x20AC;? will share the stage with local acoustic trio Three at Last, the improvisational singer-songwriter Scott Kalechstein and supergroup Fairfax All-star Band, including former members of Big Brother and the Holding Company and the Tom Finch Group. Body & Soul takes a truly holistic approach with the wide-sweeping range of free classes and panel discussion. Throughout the day festival-goers can learn new yoga techniques, tricks to really smooth tai chi, kung fu moves and how to shake it like a Bollywood star. Expert panels will also address numerous pressings health and wellness issues on topics ranging from parenting, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nutrition, womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, genetically modified products and even that scary flu virus. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, with the shade of the redwoods, the opportunities for free massages, the organic wine and the pleasing music, both body and soul will have many more reasons to relax than to be hysterical. Celebrate the whole person on Saturday, Sept. 26, at Peri Park and the Fairfax Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Club. 46 Park St., Fairfax. Noon to 7pm. Freeâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;$5. www.wordoutconsulting.com.

Annual Free Night of Theater opens doors in North Bay ew York City knows how to do live theater, and one thing that Big Apple stages learned several years ago was that giving away free tickets is a great way to lure in first-timer playgoers. Moreover, they soon found the results to be extraordinary. The annual Free Night of Theater not only does a great job of connecting with new demographic groups, but those people, once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tasted the fruit of live performance, are highly likely to return as ticket buyers. A few years back, San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre Bay Area organization teamed up with New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major Theater Publicity Group to test out the whole â&#x20AC;&#x153;free theaterâ&#x20AC;? thing in the Bay Area, with the same results as in New York. For 2009, nearly a hundred Bay Area theaters are participating, but the Free Night of Theater is no longer relegated to just one day, having been spread out over the entire month of October. In the North Bay, six theater companies will be giving away tickets for a total of 10 performances. Participants include Marin Theatre Company, offering free viewings of Chaim Potokâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s My Name Is Asher Lev on Oct. 4, and Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cinnabar Theater, with free tickets for the metaphysical comedy On the Verge, Oct. 8 (above). Ross Valley Players invite folks to see Dale Wassermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literary spook Premiere on Oct. 2, and Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Narrow Way Stage Company is opening the doors for (count â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em) three nights, Oct. 1, 3 and 10, for their new production of Laurence Fishburneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hip-hop drama Riff Raff, performed in the Studio at Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sixth Street Playhouse. In San Rafael, the experimental AlterTheater Ensemble opens its doors for two performances of Brian Thorstensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedic The Horses Oct. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;23. Finally, Sonoma County Repertory Theatre offers Conrad Bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visually stunning, dreamlike staging of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tempest on Oct. 10. But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the trick: tickets must be reserved online through the www.tixbayarea.com website. You must register, and no one may reserve more than one pair of tickets, so choose carefully. All tickets will be made available starting Sept. 30, and are first-come, firstserved. Details on all available productions, including those in San Francisco and beyond, can be found on the site. Mark Sept. 30 as the day when it once again is clear that â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeâ&#x20AC;? is the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;hooray!â&#x20AC;? David Templeton
