<0=C74H>=<8B0=3AHš0608= The Bohemian published a cartoon by Jaime Crespo that depicted a seriously injured Tiger Woods with a golf club bent over his head (Feature, Dec. 30, 2009). His word balloon read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gee, honey, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re [sic] swing has really improved!â&#x20AC;? Please advise Mr. Crespo that assaulting a spouse with a golf club to the skull is not only felony domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, but attempted murder as well. And there is no excuse for domestic violenceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;regardless of the gender of the victim or the perpetrator. This cartoon should have been rejected by the editor, especially since three Sonoma County men were recently murdered by their intimate partners. Surely, if the genders were reversed, the cartoon would have never seen the light of day. The root of this double standard is misandry, the sexist counterpart of misogyny. Because we live in a gynocentric society, misogyny is considered unacceptable and closely monitored. Even though

?A>3D2C8>=<0=064A

misandry is visible to anyone, it is not visible to most as a problem. Misandry is usually excused (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Men are jerksâ&#x20AC;?), trivialized (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take it like a manâ&#x20AC;?) or rationalized (â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had it coming,â&#x20AC;? e.g., Tiger Woods).

9>4<0=C74H

and that we all still have First Amendment rights and are free to exercise them, but there are times where you just come off sounding like a whiner. Sincerely, Jaime â&#x20AC;&#x153;9 Ironâ&#x20AC;? Crespo

?4C0;D<0

Jaime Crespo responds: I am quite inclined to agree with you that domestic violence is indeed a serious issue for either gender. I live in Marin County and therefore knew nothing of the three men who were violently attacked by their partners. Saying domestic violence is great and funny was not the point of that particular panel in that strip. I must point out that the strip was satirical and that panel had less to do with Tiger Woods and his domestic problems (which I personally couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a damn about) and more to do with our fascination with celebrity lives above the truly more serious conditions such as the abuse of power, the abuse of the environment, war(s), unemployment, youth violence, et al., that plague us. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great that you read the North Bay Bohemian

14CC4A08AC7A>D67=D:4B The U.S. was criticized for having no climate law enacted before sending its delegation to the recent Copenhagen summit. The climate bill pending in Congress includes massive federally backed loans to the nuclear industry to build more reactors. The Congressional Budget Office has determined that the risk of default on the loans is well above 50 percent. The nuclear industry cannot find private sector financing for its planned reactors. As reported by Mother Jones magazine, the industry is pushing for a bill provision to create an office within the Department of Energy (DOE) that would have authority to award loan guarantees without congressional review. Senators Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, are sponsoring such legislation. Congress so far has given the DOE authority to distribute $18.5 billion in loan guarantees for more nuclear facilities. Recent estimates put the cost of building one reactor as high as $12 billion. The nuclear industry wants at least $100 billion in loan guarantees. We taxpayers are about to subsidize the nuclear power industry, if the pending climate bill passes.

Speaking to you as one sports fan to another, your count is 2 and 0. Your first strike was a swing and a miss in Afghanistan; a naif and clumsy lurch at a pitch so far out of the strike zone that you should have recognized it as a lost cause. A rookie mistake. Your second was a called strike in Copenhagen. You simply stood there while the opportunity whizzed by you, as you tried to remember what your corporate batting coaches told you to do. Your team (the Pachyderms) are all standing in the dugout waiting to see what you will do with the next one. One more major blunder, and you will be out of thereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no great loss, but what about the game?

60C4F0H For Stefan R., OxyContin did in fact lead to heroin.

>_Xd\FPa

The FDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belated move to rein in rampant abuse of OxyContin By Curtis Cartier

2

old, sweaty and nauseous, Stefan R. burst into the pale-green bathroom stall of the movie theater menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room to spend his first experience with OxyContin face down in a public toilet. The sickly green paint of the stall, he says, seemed appropriate given the state he found himself in after taking 80 milligrams of one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strongest pharmaceuticals. The only problem was, he liked it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved it, actually,â&#x20AC;? says the stocky, bespectacled 25-year-old over a cup of black coffee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My pupils were the size of pinpricks, and I was covered in sweat and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop throwing up, but it felt good. I felt good.â&#x20AC;? Typically prescribed for people in chronic and excruciating painâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;cancer patients, the terminally illâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;OxyContin (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oxyâ&#x20AC;? for

oxycodone, a common narcotic painkiller, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Continâ&#x20AC;? for continual, as in a continual steady dosage) is one of the most frequently prescribed brand-name painkillers in the country, with 1.4 million prescriptions written in 2006. The pills contain a huge amount of active narcotic but are coated in a time-release shell that spreads that dosage over about 12 hours. What Stefan, who asked that his last name not be used, had learned about OxyContin 15 minutes before sprinting into the bathroom stall was the same thing millions of others have learned: remove the outer shell, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got something akin to pure, lab-grade heroin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heroin is the most insidious drug out there, and a lot of kids arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to cross that line,â&#x20AC;? Stefan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pills, thoughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can get those anywhere. Everyone takes pills, so kids are more inclined to experiment with those.â&#x20AC;?

That day in the cinemaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bathroom was eight years ago. What followed for Stefan was a six-year addiction, first to pills, then to street heroin, methamphetamines and crack cocaine. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for his life to spiral out of control. Selling drugs, burglarizing homes and businesses, stealing from friends and family and shoplifting to support his $800-per-week habit, Stefan bottomed out in 2007 with an extended stay in jail, his second incarceration in as many weeks and his third overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just went out and hustled every day to try and get enough cash to get pills and, later, heroin,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was disgusting.â&#x20AC;?

deaths linked to drugs of its kind, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now taking the unprecedented step of issuing safety guidelines for an entire class of drug. Last February, the FDA wrote letters to 16 producers of extended-release opiate medications, including Purdue, asking them to come up with plans to curb abuse of the drugs. On Dec. 4, those same drug makers met with FDA officials in Baltimore for an update on their efforts. Officials now say they hope concrete guidelines for extended release opiates like OxyContin, including abuseresistant capsules and educational campaigns, will be in place by spring 2010. Though the FDA is just now taking steps to address OxyContinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential for abuse, problems surrounding the drug have existed for more than a decade. Dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hillbilly Heroinâ&#x20AC;? shortly after its release in 1996, the drug became popular in places like West Virginia and Kentucky, where users stole or traded the pills from disabled friends and family members and used them for a quick high. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long, however, before abuse of the drug moved out of the backwaters and into the mainstream, saturating the streets of East Coast cities and eventually moving west. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember hearing about it being in New York and places like that, then suddenly it was everywhere around here,â&#x20AC;? Stefan recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course I was curious. I wanted to get my hands on some.â&#x20AC;? At the time, Purdue had mounted a massive and, it was later proven, misleading advertising campaign aimed at doctors that claimed OxyContin had little potential for abuse and was far less dangerous than other narcotic painkillers. In 2007, after a federal investigation, Purdue executives pleaded guilty to felony charges of deceptive marketing and the company paid $634.5 million in damages for what the U.S. Justice Department described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest prescription drug failures.â&#x20AC;? The case ended not long after a federal survey found that 5.2 million Americans reported using prescription pain drugs like OxyContin inappropriately. Highprofile cases like conservative radio host Rush Limbaughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s admitted addiction to OxyContin in 2003 and the deaths of actor Heath Ledger in 2008 and Adam Goldstein (aka DJ AD) this year, both of which involved OxyContin, have led to a public outcry for more regulations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our attempt to try and ensure that the benefits of the products outweigh their risks,â&#x20AC;? said John Jenkins, director of the FDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of New Drugs, during a press conference after the Baltimore meeting last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By their design, these drugs have a large amount of opioids, and if used incorrectlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like OxyContin, where crushing the tablets and chewing them can lead to the release of all the opioidsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it can lead to serious safety concerns.â&#x20AC;?

Slippery Slope California is experiencing a fast rise in heroin addiction. Opiate-related deaths have shot up 30 percent since last year, as cheap, low-grade heroin has flooded the streets through drug-dealing gangs like the SureĂąos. Like Stefan, dozens of current and recovering addicts interviewed for this story say that their opiate addictions began with

pills like Vicodin (which combines an opiate called hydrocodone with acetaminophen), Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) and OxyContin before moving to street heroin. Stefan puts the number at roughly two-thirds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say about 70 percent of the people I met in treatment for heroin started out on pills like Oxy,â&#x20AC;? he says. Current estimates of OxyContin-related deaths range from several hundred to several thousand, and have not been published officially since 2002, when the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency completed a study that found 146 deaths â&#x20AC;&#x153;directlyâ&#x20AC;? caused by OxyContin and 318 more that were â&#x20AC;&#x153;likelyâ&#x20AC;? caused by the drug. Just last month, however, the Canadian Medical Association Journal published a study which showed that oxycodone-related deaths have risen 500 percent in the province of Ontario since 2000, when OxyContin was introduced to the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public health system.

Breaking the Habit Stefan didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get clean on his own. He had help from counselors, friends and, most importantly, he says, from his mother, Judith. A self-admitted â&#x20AC;&#x153;enablerâ&#x20AC;? during the early stages of her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s addiction, Judith says the hardest and most pivotal moment in helping her son was the day she kicked him out of her house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In ways, I was always trying to fix it. I was the mom, I put his Band-Aids on when he fell, and I thought I could fix his addiction too,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to break myself of that habit and learn to say no.â&#x20AC;? Judith, who asked that her last name not be used, found help for her own sake through the treatment group Nar-Anon, which focuses on helping nonaddicts deal with the addiction of a loved one. Other addicts look to get help at methadone clinics, where a steady supply of drugs are given to an addict before eventually being tapered off. Others, however, take a more holistic approach, and Dr. Richard Gracer of Gracer Medical Group is leading a new wave of addiction treatment that combines natural detox methods with advanced, synthetic opiate medications like Buprenorphine, which blocks the effects of opiates. He blames the FDA for not working fast enough to regulate dangerous opiates like OxyContin and says pain pills are often the earliest building blocks of addiction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oxycodone is often a starter drug, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very dangerous,â&#x20AC;? Gracer says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People get started usually by getting prescribed the drug for back pain, or sometimes they have had operations, or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kids who raid Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medicine cabinet. Pretty soon they have to take more and more to even feel normal. By the time we see them, their life is on hold, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through rehab a couple times, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stolen from their parents, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had enough.â&#x20AC;? Stefan, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now finishing his junior college exams and plans to go on to study psychopharmacology at UC Berkeley, is one of the lucky ones. He spends his days going to 12-step meetings and sharing his story with anyone who will listen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of all the people I knew personally that did Oxy, every one of them is now on heroin,â&#x20AC;? he says, stubbing out a Camel Wide on the sidewalk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, I was just a normal guy. I came from a loving, supportive family, but I still got caught up in it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can happen to anyone.â&#x20AC;?

How the library persevered a young motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sanity and enriched her life By Danielle McElwee Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Note: This Open Mic essay was written in response to Leilani Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dec. 23 news story on Sonoma County library closures.

F

hen I found out I was pregnant, I was terrified. Not knowing many other women who were pregnant or had young children, I was bereft of first-hand accounts and information about what was normal and what was to be expected. Panicking, I went to my local bookstore and filled my arms with volumes on pregnancy and babies, books I could not afford. I put the books back feeling defeated. Then I got smart and headed straight to my local public library. I found the same books there that I had at the bookstore, and a few more. Hooray! Ecstatic, I headed home with a ton of free information to help me with my pregnancy. Once a month, I dutifully returned the old books and checked out new ones in a frenzy of information absorption on pregnancy and caring for a baby. (I admit, I got a library rush and became obsessed for a time.) After my daughter was born, I continued to go to the library, getting books on childrearing and parenting, even finding my way to the fiction section for some leisurely reading. Yet I still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have close friends who could tell me the things the books couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. There was no one who could give a knowing nod when I complained about my failure at getting the baby to sleep or the overwhelming feeling of responsibility over a tiny human being, and no other babies I could see crying or fussing or peeing all over themselves and their mother, frustrating her to tears. And then I saw the flier for story time at the library. From the time my daughter was five months old up until she began preschool, we went to story time at the library most weeks. We would walk to the library for story time, where we would listen and sing and play. I would look across the room at the other mothers who had the same dark circles under their eyes that I had from lack of sleep, the same lost look in their eyes because we were all winginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it on how to take care of our babies.

When story time ended, the library allowed us to stay and chat for a while. I was finally able to make friends with women who had babies, too, and who were just as starved as I was to have someone to talk to before we all went insane. I forged many strong and therapeutic bonds with the women I met at the library, and made some lifelong friends for my daughter and myself. My daughter has had access to scores of books over the years thanks to the library, books our low-income family would not have been able to purchase for her otherwise. Because of this free service, I have been able to instill a love of reading in her. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all. We get science books, cookbooks, arts and crafts books, Spanish language books, books on nutrition. For the adults, there are classic and modern novels, biographies and books on the history of Sonoma County. We also check out DVDs on brain science, the Gold Rush or the evils of the credit card industry. Even if we had the means to buy our daughter a ton of books, they would eventually find their way into a landfill when she outgrew them. By checking books out and then returning them to share with others, we are contributing to reducing waste. The libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental! The library is a fine place. Ask around. The benefits to the community are immeasurable and, hey, we live in the community, right? If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to your local branch latelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and no one has, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been closed for the winter holidaysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;now is a good time to go. Check out a novel, find a book on carpentry, surf the net, enjoy the indoor heating, get some books on tape for a long drive, look at an almanac and find Minorca. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there at your library, my library, our library. When you get home, go to www.sonoma.lib.ca.us and hit that â&#x20AC;&#x153;donateâ&#x20AC;? button so that you can help keep our community in good shape and keep the library open.

By checking books out and then returning them to share with others, we are contributing to reducing waste. The libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental!

oncerned over polls suggesting a possible rise in climate contrarians, the Sonoma County Climate Protection Campaign recommends an article by John Rennie, editor-in-chief of Scientific American. Using exerpts from Rennieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longer article, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seven Answers to Climate Contrarian Nonsenseâ&#x20AC;? (Scientific American, Nov. 30, 2009), I have contrived a five-answer version, introducing Joe Bob, the Climate Contrarian. Here it is, with apologies to John Rennie and Scientific American. Joe Bob: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all this about cars and coal plants increasing the CO2 in the atmosphere? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very little of the stuff to begin with, and most of it was shot up by volcanoes! Rennie: Human activities account for 30 billion tons of CO2 annually. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 130 times more than volcanoes produce. Although CO2 makes up only 0.04 percent of the atmosphere, that small number says nothing about its significance in climate dynamics. Carbon dioxide absorbs radiation and acts as a greenhouse gas. Fossil-fuel burning and deforestation are the primary reasons that CO2 levels have risen 35 percent since 1832, from 284 parts per million (ppm) to 388 ppmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a remarkable jump to the highest levels seen in millions of years. Joe Bob: Dude, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sun! Look at Mars. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heating up, too! Rennie: In defiance of the naysayers who want to chalk the recent warming up to natural cycles, there is insufficient evidence that enough extra solar energy is reaching our planet to account for the observed rise in global temperatures. The increase in human inf luence on climate exceeds that of any solar variation. Joe Bob: You guys hide the truth about global warming by locking away data! Rennie: It is virtually impossible to disprove accusations of giant global conspiracies to those already convinced of them. (Can anyone prove that the Freemasons and the Roswell aliens arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involved,

too?) Let it therefore be noted that the magnitude of this hypothetical conspiracy would need to encompass many thousands of uncontroversial publications and respected scientists from around the world, stretching back through Arrhenius and Tyndall for almost 150 years. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carbon Dioxide and Climate,â&#x20AC;? by Gilbert N. Plass, for example, was published in Scientific American in July 1959.) Joe Bob: You climate guys are making stuff up just to get money! Rennie: If climate scientists are angling for more money by hyping fears of climate change, they are not doing so very effectively. According to a 2006 Government Accountability Office study, between 1993 and 2004, U.S. federal spending on climate change rose from $3.3 billion to $5.1 billionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a 55 percent increase. (Total federal nondefense spending on research in 2004 exceeded $50 billion.) However, the research share of that money fell from 56 percent to 39 percent; most of it went to energy conservation projects and other technology programs. Climatologistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding therefore stayed almost flat while others, including those in industry, benefited handsomely. Surely, the Freemasons could do better than that. Joe Bob: Why caps on carbon? Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t technology fix it? Rennie: Technological innovations in energy efficiency, conservation and production are exactly what caps or levies on CO2 are meant to encourage. The relevant question is whether it is prudent for civilization to defer curbing or reducing its CO2 output before such technologies are ready and can be deployed at the needed scale. The most common conclusion is no. All in all, counting on future technological developments to solve climate change rather than engaging with the problem straightforwardly by all available means, including regulatory ones, seems like the height of irresponsibility. But then again, responsible action on climate change is what the contrarians seem most interested in denying.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is insufficient evidence that enough extra solar energy is reaching our planet to account for the observed rise in global temperatures. The increase in human influence on climate exceeds that of any solar variation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

1^cc[T1[dTb Recycling wine bottles takes on a whole new meaning when the flasks are simply cleaned, sterilized and reused. A new company hopes that your blue bin wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever be the same By Alastair Bland

bout a year ago, Bruce Stephens shot out of bed at midnight, woke up his alarmed wife and voiced his greatest heartache of the hour: Why, he lamented, did America lack a system of commercial-scale wine-bottle reuse? His abrupt epiphany was not quite a spontaneous one, for bottles were already on his mind. Earlier that day, Stephens, a Sonoma home winemaker, had learned with great frustration that a 500-bottle deal had fallen through on his supplierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. With a barrel of backyard Cab ready to be bottledâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and with empty 750s by the thousands dwelling in streetside recycling bins all over town, destined for industrial melting kilnsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Stephensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; frustration was only equaled by his optimism. For although he saw a resource

terribly wasted, the problem had a very simple fix: reuse, sterilize and redistribute empty wine bottles. Since his midnight awakening, Stephens has conducted extensive research into the glass, recycling and wine industries. He has learned that seven out of 10 wine bottles in the United States ends life in a landfill; that nearly every nation besides the U.S. has a large-scale bottle collection and reuse system in place; that in the European Union, the average wine bottle is used eight times before its life cycle endsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;quite possibly in an America landfill; that 60 percent of a wine bottleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon footprint comes from melting, molding and making the glass bottle. Stephens discovered, as well, that that several bottle redistribution companies have tried but failed in the United States due to technological inadequacies of their era, problems that have since been overcome. After deciding that a

bottle wash-and-reuse system was a viable business idea, Stephens partnered with two other entrepreneurs, drafted a business plan and secured a facility in Stockton. Now, the trio is scheduled to launch into business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This sounds terrible to some people, but we need to follow the Europeans,â&#x20AC;? Stephens says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are way ahead of us in things like reusing bottles. But it makes sense, and all weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do is make sense.â&#x20AC;? Plus, he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge percentage of wineries that want to be greener. Every one [of them] will be our customer.â&#x20AC;? The company has a no-nonsense nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wine Bottle Recyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the goal is to collect and redistribute 3 million to 5 million casesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of used wine bottles each year by sometime in 2010. The three-man partnership includes Napa County supervisor Bill Dodd and one Chris Ronson, who helped '% THE BOHEMIAN

operate a short-lived bottle-washing plant in the late 1990s called Evergreen, still wellremembered by many wineries. The three have lined up prospective clients for Wine Bottle Recycling and have already furnished a retired Del Monte fruit-canning plant of 92,000 square feet with the advanced machinery needed to make the plan work. Essential is a new computerized optical sorting machine that can distinguish between the hundreds of bottle molds in use today. Just down the conveyor line is the washing machine, capable of processing and de-labeling over 70,000 wine bottles per hour. As ambitious, innovative and indemand as it may be, Wine Bottle Recyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan is simultaneously modest; by year five, Stephens hopes theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be recirculating just 1 percentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;perhaps 2 percentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine bottles back into use. Americans, after all, drink a whole lot of wine and toss away a whole lot of bottles. Stephens can live with the former; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the latter that keeps him up at night.

Recycling Not the Answer As he wheels his blue bin to the street curb each Monday morning, Stephens bows his head in embarrassment. Though many Americans believe this weekly ritual to be a meaningful act in helping to mitigate a plague of environmental issues, including landfill inundation and climate change, Stephens knows otherwise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staggering how dirty the bottle industry is,â&#x20AC;? says Stephens, who co-owns an overseas recycled plastic neoprene manufacturer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public has to be aware of what the glass industry has been doing. Getting us all to recycle and think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saving the world is just duping the public.â&#x20AC;? Considering the energy required to melt glass, the broken bottles that wind up being swept into the trash are major strikes against the business of recycling glass. Ronson, whom Stephens first approached last fall as a consultant, also says that recycling is hardly different than buying new bottles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recycling is not a solution to anything,â&#x20AC;? says Ronson, who lives in Modesto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does recycling accomplish? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still melting material at extremely high temperatures and remolding it. All youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing is taking silica sand from the earth. Whoopee.â&#x20AC;? Today, many wineries know the business sense in taking â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? measures and in letting customers know about it. The use of old bottles will likely become a selling point for many wineries, but in the 1990s, Ronson recalls, most producers wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think of buying reused glass unless it was cheaper than new glass. Thus, Ronsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endeavor with Evergreen in Stockton was barely viable at first, but as the green movement accelerated, the future of reusing bottles grew brighter. In the late 1990s, however, the wine industry killed it by introducing label adhesives that resisted all but the most arduous bodily efforts to remove them from the bottles.

Sorting and cleaning were easy, but by 1999 the crew in the Stockton facility regularly had to drop other tasks to use razor blades and scrape labels from the bottles. Evergreen continued to wash dusty bottle batches for immediate winery use, but the delabeling of old bottles was finished. Today, Wine Bottle Recycling has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;proprietary machineâ&#x20AC;? that will delabel the bottles, Ronson says. Another recent bottle-collecting and washing service, Encore, lasted until 2004, then collapsed. The hitch: sorting the bottles. Zac Robinson, owner of Husch Vineyards, an Anderson Valley winery, received used and washed wine bottles from Encore until its final days. Robinson broke off his contract with the used bottle supplier because the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardware failed to properly sort the glassware. Every fifth or sixth bottle, he says, wound up with a bubble under its label due to miniscule size differences in the bottles that came jingling down the conveyor belt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These were millimeter differences,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottles were identical to the naked eye but our label machine was programmed for one size, and it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put labels cleanly on bottles that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly the same. It was a hard decision for us, but we had to quit.â&#x20AC;?

Breaking the Molds In the wine industry, in which more than 2,000 companies in California alone strive for uniqueness in a relatively homogenous industry, there now exist roughly 400 bottle molds in the 750 ml category. Each differs slightly from the other in minute differences of height, width, glass thickness, nozzle length, punt indentation, color, and many more parameters. Not a task for naked eyes, bottle sorting can even foil machines, and Encoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mechanical apparatus failed in an industry drowning in bottle styles. Frey Vineyards, the largest organic winery in the nation, also quit the used-and-washed bottle game two decades ago, as its supplier proved incapable of delivering identical bottles in a batch. That was in the 1980s, but things have changed. At Wine Bottle Recycling, the facial recognition software that will sort the bottles as they roll past on a conveyor is virtually flawless. Anyway, the 400 styles of bottles are not likely to appear regularly in the laser sights of the apparatus, as just 20 styles make up 80 percent of bottles in use, Stephens says. Frey Vineyards, which has expressed interest in purchasing from Wine Bottle Recycling, may be a particularly easy customer; the company fills almost 1 million bottles of wine each year in just three bottle molds. Stephens feels that wineries that custom engrave their bottles, making them useless for a grassroots company gearing up to reuse bottles, are providing a disservice to the system already in place in Europe and which he hopes to launch in America. Such bottles will not be welcomed at the dropoff â&#x20AC;&#x153;bottle shacksâ&#x20AC;? that Ronson, Dodd and Stephens plan to establish around Northern California. At these locations, wine bottle donators will be rewarded with a cash refund.

AH0=4;H

=42:½=½=42: Once you start looking at bottles, it becomes apparent how many shapes and sizes they come in, making standardizing their reuse that much harder.

In turn, Stephens says, Wine Bottle Recycling will price their bottles as competitively as possible, 20 to 50 percent cheaper than new glass, he promisesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and cleaner. A priority in the plan is to develop a system of only sterilizing a batch of bottles the day before shipment to the winery. Major bottle suppliers today may store batches of bottles in warehouses for months before delivery to clients. These bottles may have developed â&#x20AC;&#x153;bottle bloom,â&#x20AC;? a condition in which silica dust emerges from the glass and clouds the surface. Many times wineries must rewash their new bottles before use as the filmy substance can alter the ph of wine and perhaps even cause so-called cork taint, Stephens says.

Ready & Willing Michael Mondavi is ready and waiting for Wine Bottle Recycling to open up for business. No stranger to filling used bottles with his wine, he purchased glass bottles from a collecting and sterilizing company called Calglass in the 1960s and 1970s. Chipped bottles regularly slipped past the inspectors, however, and different bottle molds frequently wound up on the same belt receiving the same vintage of wine from the filler. Today, Mondavi, who produces six labels in a dozen bottle molds with Folio Fine Wine Partners, believes such problems are things of the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, the sophistication of European bottle-reuse equipment is tremendous, and the automation is terrific. If that service becomes available in California,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;put me first on the list.â&#x20AC;? Mondavi is also eager to return to doing business with a smaller, more flexible bottle supplier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Bruce is proposing

to do will be a wonderful thing for the smaller wineries,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otherwise, little producers like us are slaves to the big glass companies, because when they pull their bottles from the kiln, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to buy them. If they say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a run of 750 Burgundy green bottles in July and the next batch wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be until May, you might have no choice, and if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy the bottles then, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll charge you for storage.â&#x20AC;? Wine Bottle Recycling will face some limitations. With just one facility expected to be online at launch time, the service will depend on bottles that never left the state of California; bottles of Napa Cab shipped to Manhattan will not likely make their way back when empty to the Stockton bottle processor. Stephens admits it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re depending for now on bottles from locally consumed wine.â&#x20AC;? He hopes to engage event centers, restaurants and tasting rooms in a bottle delivery or pickup system. Gaining the interest of customers, though, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a problem, says Stephens. Husch, Folio, Frey and even such giants as Kendall-Jackson, Parducci and Sutter Home are firmly interest in purchasing sterilized bottles when Wine Bottle Recycling opens for business, and all signs are pointing to success for the Stephens and his partners, especially as the price of re-melted, re-molded glass rises steadily with energy prices. But until the day he makes his first bottle delivery, Monday mornings will be a trying time for Stephens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely embarrassing to take your blue bin to the curb and up and down the street everyone else is doing the same and everyone thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing a great thing for the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when, really, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not happening.â&#x20AC;? Not yet, anyway. THE BOHEMIAN

A4BC0DA0=C A4B>;DC8>=B hifting gears toward a more sustainable, enlightened food service is perceived as costly (to restaurants, not the environment), but data show that restaurants moving toward more environmentally sound business practices reap ďŹ nancial rewards. According to the Green Restaurant Association, a nonproďŹ t organization that certiďŹ es restaurants that adopt environmentally sound business practices, 80 percent of Americans identify themselves as environmentally concerned. A dedicated sector of these 80 percent are driving a 20 percent annual growth in the $11 billion organic food industry, in part by seeking out green restaurants. Why not get a piece of that?

S

Here is a short list of what restaurants can do to clean up their environmental footprint. The list focuses on things that are visible to the customer, i.e. food choices and packaging. Of course, energy-efďŹ cient appliances and use of nontoxic chemicals is commendable as well, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re harder to evaluate since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not visible to the average diner. Use compostable and / or recyclable plates For years restaurants had few options other than styrofoam and plastic plates and utensils, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changed. There are scores of companies (some local, like Worldcentric. org) that make functional to-go and in-house plates and utensils that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit in landďŹ lls for a thousand years.

=ZVaYhWjg\7Vg<g^aa

Better yet, give a discount if people bring own stuff One of my New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions is to bring my own containers to pack up my leftovers. If restaurants encouraged customers to do the same with a small discount, they could save on the cost of their own packaging because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use less.

AV=VX^ZcYV

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve imperiled species This seems kind of obvious, right? Since domesticated animals arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imperiled (at last not with extinction), weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mainly talking about seafood. BlueďŹ n tuna, Chilean sea bass, grouper, Atlantic swordďŹ sh and too many other species need to remain in the ocean, not on your plate. Consult the Monterey Bay Aquariumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SeafoodWatch.org for guidelines. They even have an iPhone app.

No factory-farmed meat This is a huge one. Commodity meat produced in cruel, environmentally damaging conditions is the norm. A restaurant that really wants to show its commitment to doing the right thing, should have eliminating industrially raised meat at the top of the list.

IgjXA^c]

Serve seasonal and local produce Produce in season tastes better, costs less, supports local growers and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be air-freighted from Chile. Does anyone really like winter tomatoes anyway?

How about serving less meat? While estimates vary, the production and distribution of industrial meat contribute between 18 and 51 percent of climate-warming gasses. We need to eat less of it.

Humanely raised food Just as organic produce is certiďŹ ed as such, so too is there third-party certiďŹ cation for humanely raised food. CertiďŹ edHumane.org is one of the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders. Serve organic food While not all organically raised food is equal, and some food that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t certiďŹ ed organic but is grown without chemical is just as good, seeking out certiďŹ ed organic products is a good place to start and tell customers you care about food quality and the health of the planet.

WEDDING EXPO Dear Friends, As producer of The Wedding Expo at the Wells Fargo Center, I want to thank you for taking a look at this Bride Guide. Its purpose is to introduce you to some of the finest wedding vendors in the Wine Country. It is also a guide to the most exciting wedding event in the North Bay (beside your own wedding, of course!).

As

you peruse the pages, you will notice the usual housekeeping items: a map of the Wedding Expo, a listing of exhibitors, and other important details including our many prize giveaways. I invite you to enjoy the editorial pieces by some of the show’s sponsors, leaders in the wedding industry who offer valuable insight. I also invite you to visit WineCountryBride.com - our show brings in about 1500 people, and a visit to the website will prepare you to make the most of your time at The Wedding Expo. At WineCountryBride.com, you can pre-register for a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes and buy discounted tickets online. When you arrive at the show, you’ll have a smooth, quick entry and get right in to begin your wedding planning. The Wedding Expo is an excellent opportunity to make key planning decisions. With over a hundred top local wedding professionals under one roof, many will be offering exclusive discounts and promotions. I would encourage you to consider booking at the show or shortly thereafter, as our vendors are in high demand and book quickly. In addition to being a wedding planning resource, The Wedding Expo is a great event- with wine tasting, an ongoing fashion centers, and major prize giveaways- who says the planning can’t be enjoyable? I look forward to seeing you at the Wedding Expo- stop by my booth to say hello. I’m happy to be a resource for your wine country wedding, and would love to work with you on your event. Thank you for your interest in my show, and best wishes for your wedding!

The Wedding Coordinator A bride and groom (and sometimes their families) play the role of host at a wedding. This is a substantial task, made more complicated by the duties of overseeing the event. Enter the Wedding Coordinator.

Planner

Coordinator

A wedding coordinator’s job often starts with the planning phase. A wedding planner can make your wedding thoroughly memorable to your guests by assuring that they are comfortable and cared for throughout the festivities. A good coordinator brings each couple’s vision to life, making the wedding a reflection of who they are. Your coordinator should have an eye for style and décor. As the planning progresses, you can rely on your coordinator’s expertise to foresee potential pitfalls and difficulties (and avoid them in the planning stage!)

During your wedding, your coordinator becomes your operations manager, freeing you to play the gracious host or hostess, and enjoy your wedding with your guests. Look for a coordinator that is pleasant and professional -- calm, cool and collected at all times. In addition to being the point person and chief problem-solver, your coordinator captains your team of vendors. Effective interaction with vendors ensures that those working your wedding are taken care of, which allows them to do their best work.

Organizer

This is what Cirkl Productions is all about -- taking on the responsibility of overseeing your wedding, so you can enjoy your wedding with friends and family. Our reputation is based on inventive planning and seamless execution. We work closely with each client from start to finish, ensuring a realization of your vision and an enjoyable experience.

Much of the work that goes into a wedding involves organization. From preparing a comprehensive timeline to sequencing vendor arrivals for maximum efficiency, a coordinator provides the framework that gives a polished feel to your wedding. Your coordinator provides perspective: keeping in mind the big picture while taking care of the smallest details. They can help you prioritize your budget -- assuring that the things that are important to you are given adequate consideration.

Eco-Friendly Wedding

-------------------------------Start creating the world that you want to share with your life partner and the healthier, more beautiful world that you'd like to raise your children in by creating an ecologically sound wedding celebration. Here are some hints to get you started:

LOCATION * Have the ceremony and reception at the same location, or at least near to each other to avoid having your guests drive between the two.

INVITATIONS * Buy 100% PCW recycled invitations that are processed without chlorine. Encourage guests to recycle their invitations, or have seeds embedded in the paper so that guests can plant the invitations and enjoy the flowers that grow from them. * Use a reply postcard (no envelope) and forgo the inner envelopes-you'll save paper and money. * Choose a small simple design, or a self-mailer-again, less paper! * Create a website with details about your wedding-directions, hotels, other weekend events, to avoid having to print this information out for everyone. (OR, only print cards with this information for family and friends without Internet access.)

WEDDING DRESS * Learn how you can donate your wedding dress for charity at www.idofoundation.org.

FLOWERS * Use potted plants in place of cut flowers for centerpieces. These can then be given as gifts or enjoyed in your home.

FOOD and DISHES * Find a caterer who will provide vegetarian and organic entrees. * If you are having an outdoor wedding, or will be having casual rehearsal dinner/weekend events for your guests, consider one of the following: 1. Renting real glasses, dishes, and cloth napkins, to avoid using disposable plates, etc. 2. Using biodegradable, compostable dishes and flatware made from cornstarch, sugar cane, or tropical leaves.

Go to the largest bridal store in your area before you make your mind up on a style...wear your most alluring undergarments because you'll be spending a lot of time showing them off to a perfect stranger...make sure you have a lot of time and then try EVERYTHING on! It's amazing how the dress you just didn't think of is often the one that looks best on you. Every time you find a dress that might possibly be "the one" take a Polaroid of it. Be sure to order your dress at least six months before your wedding date. Most dress companies have a 4 month turn around and most wedding dresses will also need some kind of alterations. Ordering your dress early in the planning process will make the whole process smooth and enjoyable, This is one of the most important purchases you'll ever make! Another important note: when choosing your dess, be sure that it matches the style of your wedding. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be wearing a 1940â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hollywood glamor gown when your wedding is a backyard barbeque!

ivory cloths with white overlays, for example; and have a white wedding cake with white rolled fondant frosting and accented with ivory sugar blossoms. Final touches: waiters dressed in tuxedos with white jackets (hello, James Bond), and, of course, a white limousine.

embrace color..... Develop a visually stunning scene using monochromatic color, whether blue, violet, or kiwi green. Consider setting up different sizes and shapes of tables (circular, square, rectangular) and use different textures or designs for the fabrics (pin-stripe fabrics on round tables and tiny polka-dot covers on square ones). Although your color palette will remain the same, each tabletop will render a distinct personality.

set your tables apart.... Who says the tables must sport uniform arrangements? Think of your spread of tables as a garden, each row or corner with its own identity. Place some of your chosen blooms in tall opaque vases, float other flowers in short bowls, use others in clear vases filled with rocks and water. Accent the shorter centerpieces with tall taper candles and the taller ones with shorter votives or tea lights.

make it intimate.... If you've chosen a huge reception space to accommodate your massive family, make it more intimate by adding lounge furniture. If you can't bring in couches and plush chairs to create a sitting area, try seating only four people to a table instead of eight to ten, or drape the walls and ceilings with rich velvety fabrics to close in the space.

902DII8 50<8;H E8=4H0A3B he free association the name of this winery inspires is so predictableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;redwood decks, California sunsets and two conveniently placed glasses of wineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that the mere mention of it to people unfamiliar with this two-year-old winery is met with incredulity, even offense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But how can they? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so . . .â&#x20AC;?

T

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so Italian, is what it is. Relax, have a Pinot Grigio and take in this story. Before the warm water jets that we all know and our lower backs love, there was a real family that, after a brief career in aviation manufacturing, was already growing grapes in the 1930s. The Jacuzzis then made wine ďŹ lters, well pumps and an initially mundane therapeutic water pump that became a household name and sold in the 1970s for a tidy sum. Wine drinkers already know them by their other family name, having operating Cline Cellars across the road for 26 years. While Cline is a rambling collection of old farm buildings, Jacuzzi is a brand-new replica villa with tour bus parking. Stone terraces beckon wouldbe brides from above, while below, a few historic Jacuzzi pumps loiter in an alcove on the way to the rest rooms. Holding down Catholic piety in the courtyard, old St. Francis ministers to a dove and a broken alligator, while cellar visitors are greeted by a barrel-chested Bacchus erupting from a marble pillar, his buxom female associate popping out from the other side to pair him. Dual tasting rooms offer both wine and oily goods from the Olive Press, as tchotchke-choked as can be, but the bar is well-staffed with a cadre of older gentlemen and women. Our man was the quintessential wine host: personable, professional and just a little puckish. Jacuzziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winemaker also reports to Cline, but the wine styles couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more different. Jacuzzi is all Italian varietals, Merlot and Cab being now honorary members. The 2008 Paicines Arneis ($22) could swap for Sauvignon Blanc, with ripe fruit skin, uncut pineapple and white raisin aromas. The 2008 Carneros, Giliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vernaccia ($22) had that uncommonly balanced, weighty but clean sensation of mineral water. The 2006 Sonoma Valley Aleatico ($20), an enticing red variation of Muscat Canelli, had ďŹ&#x201A;oral, muscat aromas that have no other fruit corollary, ďŹ nishing ďŹ ne and dry. A lighter style of a sometimes tarry wine, the 2007 Carneros Nebbiolo ($28) had nuances of toasted nut and cranberry astringency, while the 2007 Mendocino County Barbera ($25) displayed Petite Sirah-like paint, tar, licorice with a wide, dry palate of rubbery tannin. Even the 2006 Rosso di Sette Fratelli, Carneros Merlot ($20), in an old-fashioned fat-bottomed ďŹ&#x201A;ask, shares the same Italian styleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nearly every red is medium bodied, with a touch of bright cranberry-cherry, varnished-pomegranate fruit, astringent in that distinctly Chianti-like, appealing but food-dependent, fashion. These are wines surely made for that hot tub of the old schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a great, steaming bowl of linguini and marinara. Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, 24724 Arnold Drive, Sonoma. Open Daily 10am to 5:30pm. No fee for most tastings; $1 reserves. 707.931.7575.

CWT?PhžbcWTCWX]V North Bay theater companies struggle to weather the Great Recession with grace By David Templeton

C

he thing about actors is that they are, in many cases, pretty good at acting. Having perfected the art of artifice, they have a knack for putting happy faces on situations that are, beneath the makeup and masks, not so happy. With such skills in their toolbox of tricks, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder that so many North Bay theater companies, when asked on the record to describe the current economic downturn and how it is affecting their particular theater company, appear to view the recession as nothing more than a bothersome annoyance, an economic itch to be scratched away with a little patience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned about the current economic situation, certainly,â&#x20AC;? says Scott Phillips of Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sonoma County Repertory Theatre, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we are being cautiousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing anything differently. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really affected us all that much. In fact, where some other theater companies are pulling back, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for ways to do even more, in terms of outreach and education.â&#x20AC;? In the Repâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, this optimism is probably warranted. The Rep has earned a reputation for being lean and mean, fiscally speaking, and for the last several years has been successfully courting major grants from the NEA and other sources. So Phillipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; calmly defiant â&#x20AC;&#x153;What recession?â&#x20AC;? attitude is most likely the real deal. Meanwhile, across the rest of the North Bay,

everyone from actors to tech people to unemployed artistic directors are murmuring in hushed tones, describing the landscape of North Bay theater in dire, Judgment Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like terms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a terrible time for theater, in terms of the economic outlook,â&#x20AC;? says John Moran, founder of the North Bay Theater Group, an alliance of theater companies stretching from Marin to Willits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some are doing better than others, but the arts are always the first to be hit in times of recession, and beneath the brave words and assurances that everything is fine, most of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater companies are in a bit of a panic. Pacific Alliance Stage Company is gone, others look to be on the brink of closing shop, and everyone is looking around to see whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next.â&#x20AC;? So which is it, inconvenience or apocalypse? As is usually the case, the truth lies somewhere in between. There is no doubt that the economy has delivered some devastating casualties over the last few months. As Moran stated, the Pacific Alliance Stage Company, long a staple of the North Bay Theater scene, is no more, cut from the city budget of Rohnert Park earlier this year. As painful as this was, Mary McDougal, Spreckels Performing Arts Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager for many years, has found a way to keep the center open, forming partnerships with a number of small theater companies so that Spreckels will continue to have a season of plays. The recent hit The Santaland Diaries, which played to sell-out crowds and was held over for several additional

performances, is an example of the creative efforts theater people will go to keep on keeping on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have worked hard,â&#x20AC;? McDougal says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to continue presenting wonderful, quality shows and exceptional performance art, we are just doing it within a very tight budget.â&#x20AC;? In Marin, the beloved 142 Throckmorton Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;home to a thriving series of new play workshops, musical and comedy events, and community theater productionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;went public in October as being so financially strapped it might be facing closure in 2010. Fortunately, in midDecember, an anonymous donor stepped in with a pledge of up to $50,000 in matching funds, and the move inspired hundreds of donations from across the Bay Area. As of Dec. 1, the fundraising effort exceeded hopes, and management plans to use the donated funds to shore up the nonprofitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial foundation. For a while there, though, things looked bleak for Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most-unique cultural destination. Beyond the North Bay, the news is equally worrisome. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magic Theatre announced last year that it was more than half a million in debt, saved, for the time being, by a last-ditch effort early in 2009. Elsewhere, rumors of layoffs and shortened seasons blend with reports of diminished attendance and an almost universal reduction in grant money and foundation support. In Santa Rosa, there have been rumors for months that Sixth Street Playhouse (% THE BOHEMIAN

has been wrestling with crippling income shortages, that some staff positions had been eliminated, and that executive director Elizabeth Craven was about to be put on temporary furlough. While a number of sources have repeated these details off the record, leadership of Sixth Street has described things in rosier terms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are being prudent with our budget, as would be expected during a nationwide economic turndown such as the one the country is experiencing at the moment,â&#x20AC;? writes managing director Cheryl Itamura in response to a request of confirmation of recent personnel changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are being creative in our efforts to acquire in-kind donations wherever possible and have additional fundraising events in the works. We have also expanded the number and types of volunteer and internship opportunities we offer to include costume shop and production interns and more administrative and behind-the-scenes volunteer opportunities.â&#x20AC;? Itamura points to recent successes such as the massive audience turn-out (1,100 tickets sold) for a fundraising revival of the hit show Always Patsy Cline, featuring Mary Gannon Graham and Liz Jahren, at the Wells Fargo Center, and the surprise hit Ham for the Holidays, which added shows to keep up with demand for tickets. But outright gifts are significantly down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are being a little more cautious about assigning a portion of their income to donations,â&#x20AC;? she writes. As to the staff changes, Itamura confirms that the deck has been shuffled at Sixth Street, assuring the rumormongers that Craven is still with the company, now in the role of artistic director, making the artistic and education-related decisions while Itamura, bolstered by an enhanced crew of volunteers, has taken on the day-to-day details of finance, marketing, development and production. Craven, in fact, is currently at work directing the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway, hoping to strike the same chord the company hit earlier with the Patsy Cline show. Whether fair or not, any time a nonprofit quietly makes personnel changes, there are people who smell panic, so most local theater companies have done everything they can to avoid changing or eliminating staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year was very strong, box-office-wise, so we narrowly avoided layoffs or staff cuts, despite record low donations from individual contributors,â&#x20AC;? says Ryan Rilette, producing director of the Marin Theatre Company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, going into it, we knew we would be having one of the worst years ever, in terms of donations and foundation support, so we made cuts, mostly ones that patrons wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see.â&#x20AC;? Marin Theatre Company eliminated its 403B match for employees and shaved off one show from its previous six-show season. The popular Words and Music program was also cut, and the annual patron contribution that made the program possible was moved in the general fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a year when a lot of theaters were hit

THE BOHEMIAN



very hard, we ended last year in the black,â&#x20AC;? Rilette says proudly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we did that without laying anyone off.â&#x20AC;? Rilette, who before coming to MTC ran the Southern Rep Theatre Company in New Orleans and kept it going after Hurricane Katrina, knows a things or two about operating a theater during a catastrophe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let a moment of crisis change your mission,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In New Orleans after Katrina, and here at MTC when the recession was looming, we had to ask ourselves which programs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit our core mission. We cut back, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done well so far, all things considered, so we really are optimistic about the future.â&#x20AC;? In fact, MTC plans to put the sixth show back in the lineup for its 2010â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2011 season. Meanwhile, as box office sales seem to be holding steady for most medium-sized companies, the big question is when the charitable foundations will start giving grants to the arts again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are experiencing what everyone else is,â&#x20AC;? says Elly Lichenstein, executive director of Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cinnabar Theater, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we are all hurting because, as a rule, theater companies all rely on foundation support, and when an economy is hit hard, the foundations all pull back.â&#x20AC;? According to Lichenstein, audience attendance is down only slightly at Cinnabar (a recent run of the opera La Bohème saw 95 percent of its expected attendance), but with ticket sales only providing a portion of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall operating funds, strong box office is not enough to keep the stage lights on. Where the company has been hurt the hardest is in dwindling support from major outside sponsorships, grants and other donations, but also in the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrated youth programs, which have thrived on a combination of paid tuitions and donations made toward funding scholarships. This fall, for the first time ever, Cinnabar was forced to cancel a class because there were no paid tuitions at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an enormous need for scholarships,â&#x20AC;? says Lichenstein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids learn by doing, and theater mainly becomes a part of a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culture when they have the opportunity to do it. If kids arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to do theater, we end up with generations of young people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have theater as part of their culture.â&#x20AC;? According to Lichenstein, the best way to survive in a bad economy is to tackle the challenges head on. In Cinnabarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, they hired Juliet Pokorny as the new marketing and development director, to aggressively seek out whatever foundation support there might be, and to bring back grants by, in Lichensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;telling the story of Cinnabarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance to its community.â&#x20AC;? The ultimate goal, Lichenstein believes, is to do more than simply make it through the current economic malaise. The goal must be to strengthen Cinnabarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position, economically, so that it lasts well into the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the outgoing generation,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My job is to make sure that what I leave here is viable enough to continue to the next generation. When I pass the reins, I want to know that Cinnabar is going to be around for a long time. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we are juggling to make certain of. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I worry about.â&#x20AC;?

Colin Firth is magnificent in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Single Man,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; suffering a grief that dare not say its name By Richard von Busack

0

handy winner of the award for Most Improved of 2009 is Colin Firth, whose title role in A Single Man is a model of frosty yet sensitive acting. The directorial debut by haute couture designer Tom Ford is beautiful, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of beauty thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to feel anything about. Ford is working from Christopher Isherwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel, essential reading in the gay canon. But Ford directs as if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filming a classic; the material doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any room to take on a life of its own. Firth plays professor George Falconer, an Englishman in Los Angeles in the early 1960s, when the Brits were still novelty in that city. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bereaved figure; being in the closet, he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t permitted to show his sorrow after the death of his long-time male lover in an automobile accident. (In flashbacks, we see the lover, played by Matthew Goode.) This single manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secret is known only to his friend Charlotte, called Charlie (Julianne Moore), also a former flame, one who has never quite gotten over George. Falconer has another secret, though: he is putting his affairs in order with the plan of committing suicide that night. During the course of one long day, people reach out to him, offering themselves. These include Charlie, who has a standing date with George for cocktails, and Kenny (Nicholas Hoult), a handsome, persistent college student in a white-pink cashmere sweater. George also encounters a stranger, a Spanish actor (or perhaps a rent-a-Romeo) named Carlos, played by Jon Kortajarena. Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nostalgia factor is strongest during the passages where Kenny is trying to push his way

through Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resistance. This uncertain romance is classic movie stuff: attraction plus resistance with an element of danger. Certainly, Firth looks like a man of the era in question. His George resembles George Reeves, the actor who played Superman on 1950s television. Firth has just that kind of attractive remoteness. His English control is contrasted with the riotous French Provençale-on-mescaline dĂŠcor of Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, inhabited by Moore in hopped-up hair, and triple-decker earrings; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a woman living on Tanqueray and goldfiltered pink Shermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cigarettes. Moore practically mainlined her eye-shadow to get that zonked 1960s look. Her Charlie recreates one of those dance sequences that were popular in art movies of the era, those moments where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not supposed to be sure if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching a welloff white woman twisting and shouting or if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to be watching a metaphor for the breakdown of society. The sight of Moore reminds us of the great suspense of those passages in The Hours, dealing with her character Laura Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imminent suicide. Despite the opera on A Single Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soundtrack, it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be less operatic: nothing seems like a matter of life and death. Ford is good with the placement of actors on a set; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tableau-maker. The art direction is all in order, but the classicmovie looks of the film just add to the air of beautifully appointed early 1960s soap opera. The fine clothes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the men. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Single Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Jan. 8, at the Rialto Cinemas Lakeside, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

The Hills Are Alive As the glut of New Age f lyers still populating county bulletin boards affirms, achieving spiritual unity with the entire human existence can cost thousands of dollars to various â&#x20AC;&#x153;life coachesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;cosmic advisers.â&#x20AC;? Even so, the task raises a few questions. How can one comfortably sustain oneness with all persons? Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it, like, start to fade, and require more â&#x20AC;&#x153;consultationâ&#x20AC;? fees? Is that wrinkly bald person wrapped in a sarong at the bottom of the f lyer with a PO box really the avatar of Brahman? Or should I just go to the Sing-Along â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sound of Musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; instead? Why, yes! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do-Re-Mi,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sixteen Going on Seventeen,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Climb Evâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ry Mountainâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;these are the stones on the path to true brotherly and sisterly peace. Coming together in celebration of harmony! Applying our own individual voices to collectively give lift to universal truths! For only $12! These are a few of my favorite things! Lift up every voice and sing the Julie Andrews classic with your fellow man on Saturday, Jan. 9, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 7pm. $12. 707.226.7372.

Every creative garden has its unheralded tender. You know the typeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the all-knowing, humble mentor who is happy to watch the seeds grow, spread and blossom. Jules Broussard is that silent professor for the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jazz scene, a man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walked countless future saxophonists through the ropes and opened up worlds of improvisation based on his experience with Alice Coltrane, Carlos Santana and Ray Charles. On his most recent album, With Strings Attached, Broussard revisits the songs that inspired him as a young player, composed by a jazz ancestry that includes Arnett Cobb, Duke Ellington, Sidney Bechet and Benny Carter. Broussard has been holding down the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second Sundaysâ&#x20AC;? jazz series at 19 Broadway lately, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a welcome residency. Hear the Bay Area legend on Sunday, Jan. 8, at the 19 Broadway Niteclub. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 5pm to 8pm. Free. 415.459.1091.

Brian Regan is the antiâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;George Carlin. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say any of the seven words you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say on television, he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak in antagonized tones, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t criticize the government, religion or the status quo. In fact, the status quo is Reganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeding ground; his most famous skits revolve around doctors, food labels, Little League, telephones and, of course, f lying. Having now starred in two of his own Comedy Central specials, Regan brings his everyman form of clean humor to the lily-white crowds of wine country this weekend in a show that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause nervous wincing while sitting next to the kids. If your family outings usually mean driving the Suburban to Costco for a $1.50 pizza and soda dinner combo and renting Ishtar from Blockbuster, then Reganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your comedian. Laugh it up on Saturday, Jan. 9, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $39.50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$43.50. 707.546.3600.

So there I was, watching the rebroadcast of the community access channelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coverage of the Handcar Regatta. The cameras cut to the porch stage, where two guys strummed and sang in perfect harmony, and one after another, the songs were damn good. How could I have missed them? Well, the Easy Leaves, until now, have been easy to miss. They play on street corners or at small cafes, mostly in western Sonoma County. Their self-titled album should change all that; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best local releases in a long while. Bassist Kevin Carducci and guitarist Sage Fifield have a natural rapport, eased by the recording sessions in the Sierra Nevada foothills, where fueled by bacon, eggs, coffee and whiskey, the Leaves laid to tape a down-home collection of excellently written songs that fit somewhere between Jim Kweskin and the Devil Makes Three. Throw on your overalls and help them celebrate its release on Friday, Jan. 8, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $8. 707.829.7300.

Johnny Downer, 1972â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2009, remembered with all-day celebration and tribute n Dec. 4 while vacationing in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, beloved local guitarist Johnny Downer died unexpectedly at age 37 from a heart attack. The outpouring of grief from the local music community has been immense, and the official tribute to Downerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and talent this Saturday at the Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol should prove to be an overflow-capacity reminiscence to a man for whom everybody, it seems, reserved a lot of love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was like a shooting star, or a comet,â&#x20AC;? says Tim Sawyer, who played with Downer for the past nine years in the band Free Peoples. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of those rare things that touched a lot of folksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives, and everyone saw it while it was happening, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it go by so fast.â&#x20AC;? Sawyer says that Downer was changing his strings when he died, and was found with his guitar in his hands. Free Peoples, winners of the 2008 NORBAY award for Best Country/Americana Band, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t readily be classiďŹ ed as such; reggae, psychedelia, jazz and afro-beat all ďŹ nd a place in the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous experimentation. Downerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fearless spirit loomed large over the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creativity, Sawyer says of his fellow bandmate, in â&#x20AC;&#x153;his willingness to give every song a chance, and to experiment with every little scenario about the songâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;melodically, rhythmically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing about Johnny is that, almost to a fault, he accepted everybody for who they were,â&#x20AC;? Sawyer continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would run an open mic one night or heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be jamming with homeless people under a bridge another night. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hang out with the most interesting folks, and Johnny would ďŹ nd something inside of them that was really cool, and bring it to your attention. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he touched so many peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;because there was no judgment on his part.â&#x20AC;? Free Peoples will carry on as a band, but ďŹ lling Downerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes for this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration is no small feat; it takes ďŹ ve or six different guitarists, it turns out, to effectively recreate Downerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insatiable openmindedness for variety. Downerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family is traveling up from Southern California to attend, and they should not be surprised in the slightest to witness the immense love for their son in Sonoma County. Sawyer promises, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to make it as uplifting as possibleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the way Johnny Downer would want it.â&#x20AC;? Free Peoples, the Jug Dealers, the Tony Brucco Band, Radioactive, Ali Weiss, David T. Carter, David Gans, Jennifer Faust, Chris Bramble and many more pay tribute to Downer on Saturday, Jan. 9, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 3pm to 2am. $10 suggested donation; all ages. 707.829.7300.

ey, MySpace. Thanks for coming to chat with me. I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sensed something is up, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right. I think maybe we should take some time off from each other. Really. I need my space. Oh, sorryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;did you take that the wrong way? I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to be mean. But lately Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been feeling that I am not getting out of this relationship what I put into it. We spend a lot of time together, you know? And I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sense that you understand anything much about me as a person besides the surface stuff, like the movies I watch and what music I like and that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an Aries. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re, like, not connecting on a deeper level. It was so fun at first, yes. The possibilities were endless, and I was a bit giddy. You were always around to keep me entertained when no one else was there, and I love how you and I could sit together for hours, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always be something new, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never run out of people you thought I might like to meet. But then all of those loser friends of yours came around, and they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave me alone. Like, how can anyone know so many crappy bands or slutty girls named Kaylee and Mayghan? And the cool famous musicians you introduced me to only cared about jamming my bulletin box with messages wanting me to be on their street team. So maybe I thought that you were something you were not. What? No, that Facebook thing was just a casual flirtation, I swear. All I did was create a profile that one time I got back from the bar and was restlessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;truly! I forgot my password the next day! I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been back since! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be jealous. To be honest, I have had fantasies wondering what it might be like to be with Facebook. My friends keep telling me youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not good enough, that Facebook will treat me better. There are more people my age

there, after all. The more time I spend with you, the older you make me feel, with those dumb videos I never want to watch, or ads for bunny rabbit emoticons and heartthemed pimped profiles. Do you think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 13? Because I am not. Is that what you want? A 13-year-old? Sorry. That was harsh. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a week since we saw each other, and I miss you, especially when I have a deadline to meet or when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late and I finish off a bottle of wine. And I like blogging with you, though I suspect you lie to me about how many hits Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had. Like once I put up a new blog post and like two seconds later you told me three people had already looked at it. Dude, is that even possible? Do you think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m some kind of schmuck? Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a grown woman, and I still care about you. Remember when we first got together? I do, but not very well, because I was drunkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I thought we were going to be a one-night stand, ha ha! And look how long weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been seeing each other. I had no idea how intense it would get. And I have to be blunt here: the intensity is gone. I come to you for comfort, and a little bit out of habit. So maybe if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come around for a month or so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a serious look at what life without you is like. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just . . . everyone you have around you is so superficial. What? I am, too? Oh, fine. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m outta here! No, not to Facebook! What? No, not to Twitter, either. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know what the hell that is. You make me feel old, remember? Watch me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go out and meet a real person out on the street the way they used to back in olden times. Or Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll write some goddamn letter to a true human friend. Yeah, letters, you know what those are? Prolly not, you uncultured imbecile! Fine, be that way. I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take me back in a second. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause you will, right? Right?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youth in Revoltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; an obscenely genial Frenchified tickler nce, I got called a pseudo-intellectual by a person who pronounced it â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweedo-intellectual.â&#x20AC;? Youth in Revolt is a date movie for all of us cinematic sweedoes, people who brandish copies of La Strada in pathetic hope of cred. Here, a bullying high school kid sees Michael Ceraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nicholas Twisp carrying a DVD of the Fellini. He snorts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do tampons come with that? For your vagina?â&#x20AC;? However else its chips fall, Youth in Revoltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing is very ticklish. Considering its retro qualities, Dobie Gillis and Lord Love a Duck are long-ago models of what director Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl) has in line here. Fourteen-year-old Nick Twisp (Cera) is a virgin in the leafier part of Oakland, and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand it. His momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend of the day (Zach Galifianakis) has to leave town suddenly after one of his scams goes wrong. He, Nick and the mom in question (Jean Smart, a cougarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cougar) go vacationing at Restless Axles, a sad trailer park by a lake. There, Nick meets a girl whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too good to be real: Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday), kept under lock and key by her parents, the kind of religious fanatics who have â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock of Agesâ&#x20AC;? as their doorbell music. Nick determines to get next to her at all costs, even if it means creating the identity of â&#x20AC;&#x153;François Dillinger,â&#x20AC;? a kind of Big Lots version of the breezy heel Belmondo played in Breathless. Small-scale mayhem follows in Françoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wake. This reign of minor terror backfires, since Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest boyfriend is an officer with the Oakland PD. Based on Sonoma County author C. D. Payneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selfpublished novel that used to be plugged in The Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classified ads, Youth in Revolt invokes numerous local sites, from Ukiah to Santa Cruz (though for budget reasons, the movie was shot in Louisiana and Michigan). Animated interludes by Peter Sluszka keep the tone light, and the writing is so crisp, one ignores the incidents of dead air and the jokes that fail to build. Youth in Revolt sports good turns by Steve Buscemi and Adhir Kalyan (for once, the Indian-immigrantas-suave-Ronald-Colman rather than malapropismspouting-Hindoo). Fred Willard has a fine â&#x20AC;&#x2122;shroomaddled scene studying the nap of a shag carpet, and Justin Long plays a debonair but dangerous stoner. Despite a nod to computers at the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning, this is a film that carries out its scheme of rebel cool against a background of vinyl LPs, French New Wave references, pay telephones and a thinly veiled version of the book The Joy of Sex. Is Youth in Revolt a movie thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be set vaguely in the past, without any historical references, or is this a vision of non-internet cool thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll define a generation? As Nick says, when asked whether the director of Tokyo Story was Ozu or Mizoguchi, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who can say?â&#x20AC;? Youth in Revolt is in wide release on Friday, Jan. 8.

Top 10 bestselling books of 2009 opperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books staffer Vicki DeArmon recently sent out a list of its storesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2009 bestsellers ranging from Santa Rosa to Napa to Petaluma to Sebastopol; Calistoga sales were not compiled at press time. The top three of the top four of the top 10 come as little surprise to anyone paying the smallest whit of attention; one Stephenie Meyer (above) had what some authors might term a fairly good year. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the rundown: 1. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer (Oh, Vampire, my Vampire: kiss me / donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kiss me. Fiction) 2. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Shaffer (This book club staple uses letters to trace lives during Nazi occupation. Surprisingly, Amazonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bots say that those who bought this book also bought most everything else on this list save the vampire crap. Fiction.) 3. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer (Oh, Vampire, my Vampire: bite me / donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bite me. Fiction.) 4. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (Are we the only ones who remember that repressed teenaged sexuality in Splendor in the Grass landed Natalie Woodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character directly in the loony bin? Fiction.) 5. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (With the original title translated as Men Who Hate Women, this posthumously published crime thriller is setâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;absolutely!â&#x20AC;&#x201D;in Sweden. Fiction.) 6. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson (Teach a girl and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll teach a community, particularly in Afghanistan. Nonfiction.) 7. Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout (2009 Pulitzer Prize winner follows a gruff middle-aged school teacher. Fiction.) 8. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown (More da Vinciâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style madness. Total, absolute, complete fiction.) 9. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery (French crossover hit that the New York Times sniffily describes as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;accessible book that flatters readers with its intellectual veneer.â&#x20AC;? To heck with them. Fiction.) 10. Shack by William Young (Guy-meets-God. In person. God! Fiction.) Gretchen Giles

HI, I'M MISTY and I'm just as cute as can be! I've got the best of my Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix background and at only 4 years old, I've got a lifetime of love to share with you!

To learn more about adopting Misty or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us or check us out online.

MEET WALDO! Looks like he's doing semaphore with those ears, doesn't he? We think he's just begging for someone to love him and take home for the New Year. This lovely, even-tempered, and oh-so-cuddly 1 year old Shorthair is a real beauty....come and learn what joy a house rabbit can bring into your life!
