(News, Feb. 10), a larger issue looms right before our eyes about the positive work we hope to expect from labor organizations and their members. First, if they can work together on negotiating pension-fund divestment or investment in corporations in objectionable countries, why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all of these unions collaborate together to get us more democracy and jobs right here in California and help the United States to get rid of minority rule in our legislature and in the U.S. Senate? Second, if they can work together, why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they scale up investment right here at home in our communities to grow green- and clean-tech energy businesses and energy-efficiency businesses to create more jobs? Since the Steelworkers Union merged with Trumka in Europe, why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they invest in

those businesses right here at home? (In this regard, see also the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cleveland Modelâ&#x20AC;? as well.) Not only is union money going to despicable foreign countries, but it is also going right through Wall Street, which caused our economic disaster and destroyed our local jobs. Shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t labor collaborate and invest in community banks that invest locally right here at home, and gain a return on investment that truly creates a seven-fold multiplier effect in our communities for money spent locally? And finally, why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t union money be leveraged to attract government and stimulus dollars? That would rebuild our local infrastructure and put money back into our schools and cities for basic services and education, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see investigation into these possibilities and ongoing efforts toward these ends.

Entertainment programs are a big part of our mission to enrich, educate and entertain. For three decades, your nonprofit center has hosted some of the biggest names in show business, as well as some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest performing artists in music, dance, theater, comedy and speaker events. With the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programming team now under the leadership of Anita Wiglesworth, an eight-year booking veteran at the center, the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment remains steadfast to present outstanding arts, family, education, and entertainment programs. Recently our programming team confirmed three exciting new bookings: Pat Benatar, Indigo Girls and Barenaked Ladies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to note that these concerts and all others are made possible only through community donations. Revenue from ticket sales provides only half of the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating needs. Members, donors and sponsors provide the rest. In short, the viability of the center lies in the hands of the community it servesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as it has for the last 28 years. We intend to continue as the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier performing arts presenter for the next 28 years and beyond, and we need the support of everyone in our community to do so. The more you give in support of the arts, the more we can provide.

Is prison privatization the way to solve Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget woes? By Leilani Clark

>

vercrowding, violence and substandard healthcare along with dwindling access to rehabilitation are just a sampling of the issues currently plaguing California prisons. In January 2010, during his final State of the State speech, Gov. Schwarzenegger set forth a proposal to privatize Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prisons as a way of repairing the system, arguing that privatization would free up â&#x20AC;&#x153;billions of dollars that could go back into higher education.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that the governor employed the rhetorical trick of intimately connecting two hot-button issues. A 32 percent fee hike, approved in fall 2009 by the UC Board of Regents, and mandatory furlough days for faculty at schools like Sonoma State University have led to rousing discontent

among students and faculty. There is no doubt that something must be done about the failure of both education and the prisons, but is turning to privatization the best way to solve the budget crisis? According to figures released by the California Postsecondary Education Commission, last year the state spent 10 percent of the general fund on corrections and a little under 6 percent on higher education, a stark contrast to 1970, when only 3 percent of the general fund went to corrections and 14 percent to higher education. In August 2009, a panel of three federal judges ordered that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prison population be reduced by more than 40,000 over the next two years, a ruling driven by constitutional violations resulting from overcrowding as prisons bulge to nearly twice their 80,000 capacity. With these figures in mind, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that

California has entered into a prison crisis of unprecedented proportions. Privatization proponents argue that contracting out to corrections businesses like Cornell Companies and the GEO Group (which runs facilities formerly owned by controversy-laden Wackenhut) is a smart way for states to save money while maintaining public safety. At the same time, organizations like the Washington, D.C.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Sentencing Project that work to promote reforms in sentencing law and practice while promoting alternatives to incarceration believe that states should be taking a hard look at why the overcrowding is happening before farming out prisoners to the corrections industry. Louise Grant, vice-president of marketing and communications at the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the largest â&#x20AC;&#x153;private corrections %-

management providerâ&#x20AC;? in the country, asserts that there are many benefits to public-private partnerships, including cost savings and improved services to inmates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because we are a business, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the depth of red tape that government often does in the procurement process,â&#x20AC;? says Grant, on the phone from the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tennessee headquarters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can build [prisons] quickly because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built a lot of them. Over the last 10 years, we might be building a prison every year.â&#x20AC;? The modern private-prison industry in United States first emerged in 1984 when CCA was awarded a contract to take over a facility in Hamilton County, Tenn., marking the first time the government had handed over the operations of a jail to a private contractor. Corrections Corporation has grown exponentially since the 1980s, now managing facilities in 20 states, according to Grant. California has been contracting with CCA since 2006, when the state sent 1,000 inmates to five out-of-state facilities. The value of those contracts has risen from $23 million to almost $197 million annually, with potential earnings of $700 million over the course of several yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this without any competitive bidding, and after the company made their single largest campaign contribution of $100,000 to a failed budget-reform package pushed by Gov. Schwarzenegger. Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, D-South Gate, chair of the Assembly Committee on Accountability and Administrative Review, has called for hearings focusing on the contract with CCA in the coming months. Grant says that states like New Mexico, where 40 percent of the prison population is housed in for-profit facilities, turn to private corrections providers mainly as a way to save precious budget dollars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most figures show that the average cost per inmate per day in California is $130. Our costs are about $63 a day,â&#x20AC;? she says. Grant explains that CCA keeps costs down by offering salaries competitive with the local marketplace rather than offering a standard salary across the state to a mainly nonunionized staff. She also cites building cost, saying that while it might cost the state $200 million and three years to build a prison, CCA can complete the same task for $100 million in about 12 months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Healthy competition is what has made America such a great country,â&#x20AC;? asserts Grant in an echo of a quote from Schwarzeneggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State of the State speech in which he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;competition and choice are always good.â&#x20AC;? Grant continues: â&#x20AC;&#x153;States have found [these partnerships] to be beneficial, because it makes their own publicly operated system more competitive, more efficient, work smarter and work harder.â&#x20AC;? While initial costs for building private prisons may be cheaper when the contract is first signed, the evidence is mixed on whether the companies are actually able to fulfill that pledge. As with any building project, the expense can end up being higher than expected at the outset. Another concern is the high staff turnover and security issues that have arisen at some prisons. Data collected by the Texas Senate Criminal Justice Committee documented the rate of

correctional officer turnover at Texasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven private prisons (not necessarily owned by CCA) as 90 percent in 2008, compared to 24 percent at the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public prisons. The Bureau of Justice Assistance reported that private facilities experienced 49 percent more assaults on staff and 65 percent more inmate-on-inmate assaults than public facilities. Without adequate accountability mechanisms in place, even the low-security prisoners that tend to be housed in private prisons can fall prey to violence at the hands of corrections officers and each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the problem is that private prison companies are not unionized, so the staff tend to be less well-paid, less well-trained and to have lower entrance requirements,â&#x20AC;? says Sharon Dolovich, a UCLA law professor specializing in the law, policy and theory of prisons and punishment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest concern for me is the quality and conditions of confinement. It intuitively makes sense that if you are trying to make a profit then you are going to want to run the facility for less than the contract price. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just standard operating procedure. The state will only contract with you if you can do it for less,â&#x20AC;? Dolovich says. According to studies by Grassroots Leadership, a nonprofit that would like to see the abolition of for-profit prisons, the inherent profit-motive leads to a negative effect on everything from the quality of the staff to the food and healthcare provided. In testimony presented at the Commission on Safety and Abuse in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prisons on November 2005, Dolovich argued that there are troublesome aspects of private prisons, mainly revolving around inadequate accountability mechanisms and allowing private corrections companies to inf luence sentencing policy. Corrections Corporation and Wackenhut have historically been major contributors to the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative and privatization-friendly public policy organization that helped develop and successfully implement the â&#x20AC;&#x153;truth in sentencingâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;three strikesâ&#x20AC;? laws across the country. A CCA vice-president actually served as co-chair of the Criminal Task Justice Force, which drafted so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough on crimeâ&#x20AC;? legislation in at least one state. But Dolovich says that the real issue is the way incarceration is practiced by both public agencies and private providers. She argues that too much energy is spent trying to identify the differences between public and private, when in fact there are all kinds of failures in both systems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When push comes to shove, it seems to me, given the obstacles to running safe and humane prisons, we should be more concerned with identifying how to fix the public prisons than trying to farm them out to another provider who has the same kinds of problems and obstacles to running adequate facilities, and in some cases has more obstacles because they are trying to make a profit.â&#x20AC;? Others who are working to challenge current assumptions about the prison system agree. Jonathan Simon, co-chair of the Berkeley Center for Criminal Justice and author of Governing Through Crime: How the War on Crime Transformed American Democracy and Created a Culture of Fear, says that while the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal

to privatize prisons was more of a show of â&#x20AC;&#x153;rhetorical pizzazzâ&#x20AC;? than anything substantive, it still brings up important issues for taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Californians really have to think about is, should the goal be to make prison as cheap as possible or to reduce the scale of our imprisonment, which is mammoth by historic measures,â&#x20AC;? Simon says by phone from Berkeley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The governor seems to proceed as if the only way to deal with that is to try to make prisons as cheap as possible, rather than talking about whether public safety is really being advanced by such a heavy usage of prisons.â&#x20AC;? While Simon does give credit to the governor for trying to take steps toward solving the prison crisis and for bringing attention to the connection to higher education funding, he thinks a closer look should be taken at the sentencing laws that have lead to the overcrowding in the first place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The governor got our attention on the relationship between higher education and prisons. Those issues havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been put together enough,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That resolve to actually do something about the prison system so that we can spend the money where we know it is better spent needs to have follow-through. I hope citizens will stay tuned and maybe press the next governor to be a little more serious.â&#x20AC;? Groups like the Sentencing Project insist that policy makers should be looking at the inevitable effect of tough sentencing laws passed in the 1990s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at who is in California correctional facilities, how long they are serving their sentences, what policies can be applied to affect the number of people who are incarcerated and the amount of time they are serving,â&#x20AC;? says Nicole Porter, state advocacy coordinator for the Sentencing Project. In California, the infamous â&#x20AC;&#x153;three strikesâ&#x20AC;? bill set into motion legislature that can potentially send people to long prison sentences for minor infractions. For example, Leandro Andrade was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 50 years for stealing $153 worth of videotapes from two Kmart stores. With previous convictions for a residential burglary and drug possession, and since the videotapes were stolen from two different stores, the crime counted as two separate third strikes, resulting in a half-century sentence for what amounts to shoplifting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only Andrade and prisoners with similar stories who suffer; the average cost to house an inmate in California is $49,000 a year, or $134 a day, most of which is paid for with taxpayer money. For this reason, many insist that the California State Legislature should seriously consider looking out of the box when it comes to the prison crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that privatization is the ultimate solution,â&#x20AC;? Porter says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make sure that public safety is maintained, but there are an awful lot of people serving prison sentences in California, not necessarily because Californians tend to be more violent and dangerous than in other parts of the country. As the state continues to explore ways to cut costs, we continue to think that sentencing reform and looking at ways to ease the prison population will be beneficial to helping the state address its budget problems.â&#x20AC;?

Will the future of reading affect the future of writing? By Daedalus Howell

ames Joyce, it is said, became so disgruntled while drafting his first novel that he threw it on the fire. His girlfriend rescued the work-in-progress from the flames, and the subsequent rewrite became A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Such acts of literary self-immolation and redemption could only occur in our once-analog world, when the permanence of erasure moved only as fast as fire. These days, the irreversible deletion of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is a mere keystroke away. That said, it seems would-be authors are more apt to hit the â&#x20AC;&#x153;publishâ&#x20AC;? key on their blogs than the â&#x20AC;&#x153;deleteâ&#x20AC;? key on their magnum opus. Future literary historians will decide whether this has been a positive trend for the world of letters. Of the 100 millionâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;plus blogs in existence, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear how many purport to be literature, let alone how many actually are. Nevertheless, entire industries have arisen to support the notion oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blog could be a book, turning aspirants into authors with a click and credit cardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least for now. Print-on-demand services like San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Blurb will print the next Joyce a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blog Bookâ&#x20AC;? for a percentage of that bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sale to the author or his readers, in as many or as few copies as desired. Blurb has even automated the process with a program that â&#x20AC;&#x153;slurpsâ&#x20AC;? a blogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s content from its online habituĂŠ and excretes it in the shape of a book when ordered online. Likewise, online retail juggernaut Amazon provides a similar service, CreateSpace, an on-demand clearinghouse for everything DIY, from books to DVDs. It is a micro-mogulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mecca for the manufacture of media. Now print-on-demand might prove to be a transitional technology the same way DVDs are giving way to digital downloads. Amazon claims 35 percent of its book sales are downloads for its Kindle â&#x20AC;&#x153;wireless reading device.â&#x20AC;? In March, cult brand Apple will overshoot the electronic book fray with the iPad, which aggregates print, video and music enjoyment into a single, sexy device. Be assured, publishers and independent authors alike are readying their wares for Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest game-changer, which is an overgrown iPhone sans telephony. But who

wants to take a call while in the thrall of a warm, glowing piece of technology anyway? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a vibrator for the mind, and a throng of independent content producers hopes to get you off. In the olden days of digital reading, circa 2000, premium content was scarce. Beyond being deskbound, the only texts available seemed to be classics poached from the public domain, Joyce included. Occasional experiments in electronic-book marketing came and went, with business ebooks and white papers seeming most prevalent. The transformation of print-to-pixel was a trickle with publishers wary or unsure of the medium, though pixelto-print releases were garnering wider appeal and stoking dreams of digital discovery for thousands of would-be authors (blog-borne Julie/Julia is a popular example). Publisher HarperCollins even created Authonomy, an online authors community from which it occasionally cherrypicks and publishes material vetted by the crowd. Now, however, it seems a new type of author is poised to emerge, one tailored to the new medium literally at hand, whose work will bypass traditional publishers and appear in the iTunes store, forsaking the bookshelf entirely. Pictures in printed books must have once been a noveltyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;moving pictures embedded in the text of your iPad is an inevitability, not to mention audio, threedimensional maps, animated sidebars and other electronic illuminations. How will this amplify or diminish storytelling as we know it? A fear is that mutant transmedia hybrids might obviate established forms or at least leave them marginalized in the market in which a bestseller and killer app are one and the same. What seems most uncertain is whether how we read will affect how we write. This will have to be determined in the field, for not even a visionary such as Joyce could have anticipated someone cuddling up with his words â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the silence their dark fire kindled the dusk into a tawny glowâ&#x20AC;? from the glow of a tawny Kindle.

Who wants to take a call while in the thrall of a warm, glowing piece of technology anyway? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a vibrator for the mind.

eginning this month, PG&E smart meters are planned for deployment on every home and business in Sonoma County. Lampposts, buildings and telephone poles will host the wireless repeater infrastructure to serve the new wireless PG&E smart meters. The Utility Reform Network (TURN), a statewide 15,000-member coalition, says the new PG&E smart meters are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a dumb idea.â&#x20AC;? Customers, they say, are paying for this, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no return on their investment. They, along with state Sen. Dean Florez, D-Shafter, are calling for an investigation and a moratorium on the new meters. In Florezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bakersfield district, where smart meters are already in place, residents have complained of skyrocketing utility bills and have filed a class-action lawsuit against PG&E. Medical and science journalist Blake Levitt echoes TURNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position, arguing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smart grids are a spectacularly dumb idea. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonder that so many genuinely smart people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that. In our headlong rush toward anything green, we might just be doing far more harm than good. This writer has yet to find a single person who, once given the details of what smart grids entail, thinks this is smart in any way.â&#x20AC;? Cindy Sage, co-editor of the Bioinitiative Report writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why put billions into new wireless technologies that are already recognized to come with a health price-tag . . . whenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; yesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as a nation our number one imperative is to reduce out-of-control health care costs.â&#x20AC;? Smart meters emit radio frequency (RF)/ microwave radiation throughout the day and night. Two independent professionals measured smart meters and found they emit RF signals once or more every minute, on a random basis. In Sebastopol alone, this would amount to over 6 million new signals a day, not including signals from the repeater system. These wireless signals penetrate walls and buildings, and are reradiated throughout homes and businesses by electrical wiring, metal plumbing, gas lines, metal fences, etc. This is electrosmog! The Bioinitiative Report, which is recognized by the European Parliament, the European Environment Agency, the Breast Cancer Fund and others, scientifically documents evidence of health effects at RF exposure levels far below the FCC safety standards, including DNA breaks, free radical production, cell stress, premature aging, memory loss, learning impairment, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbance, reduction in melatonin secretion and cancers. The exponential increase in the use

of wireless technologies presents serious public health risks. Children, pregnant women, seniors, those with medical implants and compromised immune systems are most vulnerable. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Toxicology Program are currently studying RF. The intention of the 13-country, $30 million WHO Interphone study was to determine whether or not RF was a carcinogen. The updated results of this study found significantly increased risk of a glioma, a deadly brain tumor. Brain cancer is now the leading cancer death in children in the United States. At a recent city council meeting in Sebastopol, a PG&E representative stated that the smart grid is environmentally sustainable, and its goal is to help consumers reduce their carbon footprint. The entire concept of the smart grid rests on the unfettered use of RF throughout our homes and businesses. All appliances will be retrofitted with antennas, or consumers will need to purchase new â&#x20AC;&#x153;smartâ&#x20AC;? appliances, plus an interior meter to monitor usage. The federal government has given $3.4 billion in stimulus funds for building out the smart grid! How much additional energy will it take to power all these new RF transmissions? Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it smarter to leave appliances unplugged? Cindy Sage writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consumers may decide not to allow power transmitters inside their homes. Neither the federal government nor the states can force families to do so. What if consumers reject this system? Is it then true that this smart grid system will fail in its purpose? Why then would the federal government subsidize a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;failed programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;?â&#x20AC;? Based in Sebastopol, the EMF Safety Network has collected over 1,000 signatures on its petition calling for public hearings and a moratorium on the PG&E smart meters. Join us in calling for all cities and Sonoma County to impose an immediate moratorium on Smart Meters.

Hewlett Packard takes a stand for global social justice in e-waste

By Juliane Poirier

7

ewlett Packardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value just skyrocketed. Not in that myopic measuring tool known as the stock market, but in the realm of social justice. Last week HP banned the dumping of toxic electronic waste on developing countries. When it comes to e-waste, more than just monetary costs are hidden. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say I had placed a tracking device on the old monitor I dutifully took to the electronics waste recycling drop-off place a few years ago. My, was I feeling proud at the time. What a good citizen! Had I been able to follow my obsolete monitor, I would have discovered it was sold to the highest bidder, a black market trash broker in China. Most likely that monitor was made in China (all Apple electronics are). If so, it already had a large carbon footprint. Now it would be shipped more than 7,000 miles back, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say about four hours north of Hong Kong, and dumped in the now-poisoned outdoors with all the other stuff people like me mistakenly felt so good about recycling. There, impoverished Chinese root through mounds of discard, tearing apart old electronics to find those precious metal bits that can be resold by the thug refuse broker. When I saw the 2008 films that the CBS 60 Minutes crew shot on a visit to that particular electronics dump, I had visions of Danteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inferno, complete with the blackand tangerine-colored smoke issuing from an alchemical process used centuries before that piece of literature was published. And the gray river beside the dump conjured uncannily the River Styx. So much for literary allusion. This is U.S- exported capitalism at work in China. This scavenging pays more than farming did for these unfortunate workers, up to $8 a day. According to research posted by the Electronics TakeBack Coalition (www.electronicstakeback.com), the â&#x20AC;&#x153;horrific working conditions plus weak labor standards in China and many of the other developing countries where e-waste is sent, mean that women and children are often directly exposed to lead and other hazardous materials.â&#x20AC;?

The Coalition reports that in Guangdong Province, over 100,000 immigrants are employed at an electronics dump whose contents are sourced almost entirely from North America. There, workers routinely practice harmful tasks, reportedly including â&#x20AC;&#x153;bashing open cathode ray tubes with hammers, exposing the toxic phosphor dust inside; cooking circuit boards in woks over open fires to melt the lead solder, breathing in toxic lead fumes; burning wires in open piles to melt away the plastics (to get at the copper inside); burning the plastic casings, creating dioxins and furansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;some of the most poisonous fumes you can breathe; throwing the unwanted (but very hazardous) leaded glass into former irrigation ditches; and dumping pure acids and dissolved heavy metals directly into their rivers.â&#x20AC;? Did my old monitor get hammered open and the several pounds of lead inside it contribute to the early death of some child? Did it contribute to poisoning a water source used by the poor? The Natural Resources Defense Council, among the organizations fighting the export of e-waste, claims that seven out of 10 children in that electronics dump in southern China have too much lead in their blood. Countries importing the most electronics waste are China, India and Pakistan. Now back to HPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s admirable new stance. What exactly does it mean for this corporation to ban the export of electronics waste? It means HP has taken the not-yet lucrative lead in doing something that the law is not requiring it to do but that advocacy groups have been urging e-manufacturers to do for years: to take responsibility for the entire life-cycle of the products they make and sell. A spokesperson for the Coalition suggests that Congress pass legislation modeled on HPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new policy. While we wait for the glacial movement of Congress, HP meanwhile will be slowing the tide of toxins to other countries, keeping in this country some of the 130 thousand computers discarded every day, and the 100 million cell phones discarded every year. If we have to look at our accumulated e-waste, we might better expose how e-waste impacts the balance of social justice worldwide.

Hewlett Packard has taken the not-yet lucrative lead in doing something that the law is not requiring it to do.

The first annual Sonoma County Restaurant Week shines and dines

S

ome 80 area restaurants offer prix fixe menus during the first annual Sonoma County Restaurant Week, slated for Feb. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;28. For that week, participating restaurants have designed special three-course menus priced at $19, $29 or $39 before tax, tip and beverages have been sorted. All of the Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza Shack outlets, for example, are participating at the $19 level. Starkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steakhouse and Oyster Rockefellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are in at the $29 category; and John Ash, Zazu and Syrah are among those signed in at the $39 slot. (See the complete list of participants on p22.) A partnership between the Sonoma County Economic Development Board, local restaurateurs and such media outlets as that which you now hold proudly in your hands, SCRW is an attempt to blow a big sweet raspberry at the Great Recession by making it even more affordable to visit local kitchens. Below, we profile four places, one each in the $19 and $29 category, and two in the $39 slot. Menus and details are available online at www. sonomacountyrestaurantweek.org to make planning easier.

<82704;0<B;4A

hen Jil Hale and her husband, Geoffrey, decided to open a restaurant in Healdsburg in 2004, it was mostly because they needed a place to go. Nothing in town at the time was open later than 9pm. There was nowhere a diner could simply have a cocktail and a small plate while her companion enjoyed a large fullservice meal, and no place where the two of them could return to hang out with the dog over the newspaper and a bun on a sunny Sunday morning. No place to fall in the door unannounced at 8:30pm with nine friends. At least not all in the same restaurant. And so, while certainly a labor of love, their Barndiva Restaurant is also a pragmatic choice. It gave the family, which soon included son Lukka, now 32, as events manager, the kind of establishment they were all used to visiting in Europe, where they had lived for almost two decades. Over the last six years, Barndiva has naturally evolved andâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as an aesthetic, a concept and a community engineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it has certainly grown. Jil and Lukka, who are the most visible members of the operation, chose Healdsburg for its proximity to the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Italian-style ranch in Philo, which they say was originally planted with nearly everything a household would need to be self-sustaining. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never,â&#x20AC;? Jil stresses, â&#x20AC;&#x153;had to live off of the farm.â&#x20AC;? Instead, the family has supported itself through design and architecture and photography and writing pursuits, all of which are in full f lower in the signature barn structure they built to house the restaurant, replete with an upstairs apartment over the dining room and an objets shop, Artists & Farmers, next door. They have established their own four-suite boutique hostelry, Healdsburg Modern Cottages, across the town plaza. And everything comes close to full circle with their co-founding of Fork & Shovel, a cooperative

Little Italy In the land of American Italian dining, Cafe Citti is the real deal

L

ots of restaurants are long on pretension and short on good food, but Cafe Citti is just the opposite. Visitors order their porcini-stuffed raviolis and kalamata-olive-topped pizza at the counter and find their own seats. For chef-owner Luca Citti, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing counterintuitive about fancy food in a casual setting. Though never formally trained in cooking, Citti possesses an intuitive sense of taste that seems innate; like the French, the Portuguese and the Spanish, the Italians consider fresh, delicious food their birthright. Originally from Tuscany, Citti aims to please his inner Italian in his approach to cooking and serving food. He offers a kind of food that is largely absent from the American palate in this postâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Olive Garden era. His dishes are as rich in vegetables as they are in carbs, the raviolis are the size of

a fist and the sauces are light, rather than overpowering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had Italian people [come in] who are on vacation, and it makes me happy when they tell me this is good, that this is their first time eating decent Italian food in a month,â&#x20AC;? Citti says, noting how similar Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate and rolling hills are to his native Lucca. On a recent Wednesday night, Citti, freshly back from a mushroom-foraging trip and wearing a baseball cap, chats affably with a table of regulars. Nearby, four women share a thickly frosted birthday cake. They linger, laughing and talking, long after their leftovers have been boxed up. These women, Citti says, have been coming here since the restaurant opened 20 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen people die of old age, and their wife is still coming and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell me what happened. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad, not because I lost a customer, but because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like losing a part

organization devoted to matching farmers up with the restaurateurs who will use their products in the highest volume for the best prices on a regular, count-on-it basis, an idea that seems like a natural fit but has turned out to be more complicated than anyone might have imagined. Termed an â&#x20AC;&#x153;internet grange,â&#x20AC;? Fork & Shovel matches producers with purveyors outside of the pricey farmers market system, allowing chefs to reserve, say, the amount of chiogga beets they need from a farmer when that harvest is ready, and allowing the farmer the relief of knowing that each bunch of beets will be sold. And it reflects the original intent of Barndiva, a name that Jil says was prompted by language itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you think of a diva, what do you think of ?â&#x20AC;? she asks rhetorically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You think of opera, of course, and of movies. We wanted to celebrate the farmers and producers and real people of our community. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re divas to us.â&#x20AC;? Early on, Jil and Lukka realized that if the restaurant were to stay solvent, it would have to repose in a crucial place in the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart. While tourists abound in the summer, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support a year-round operation. Plus, tourists rarely become your friends. With Jil running an innovative cocktail program and Lukka increasingly involved in the weddings and catered parties that fill the Barndivaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacious gardens from May to November, it became clear that even with a local customer base and a devotion to the area food shed, what the restaurant needed was a solid cooking team. Former French Laundry alumnus Ryan Fancher took over as chef de cuisine last year, returning to the North Bay after opening Thomas Kellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acclaimed New York City outpost, Per Se. Pastry chef Tracy Mattson is formerly of Cyrus. The team is professional and innovative and dedicated to local tastes, offering a casual familystyle meal each Wednesday that begins at 5:30pm and ends when the â&#x20AC;&#x153;food runs out.â&#x20AC;? Fancher has recently started a pasta program on Sunday nights that features an enormous bowl of hand-made noodles sauced with whatever is freshest for just $15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud that Ryan is here,â&#x20AC;? Jil says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we wanted it to be about Barndiva. Alice Waters rarely cooked at Chez Panisse. We want it to be about art, music, food and drink, and dining.â&#x20AC;? The idea is family, the idea is local, the idea is sustainabilityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both for the planet and for the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes,â&#x20AC;? Jil says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the things that we do in life donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come from our hearts. But this,â&#x20AC;? she turns to smile at son Lukka, â&#x20AC;&#x153;does.â&#x20AC;?

of the cafe,â&#x20AC;? Citti explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They treat me like family. I like that.â&#x20AC;? Originally a pastry chef, Citti opened his doors in 1990, serving traditional Italian-style breakfasts, which, like continental breakfasts, are heavy on fruit and baked goods. The cafe met with so much local success that the gradual expansion of the menu and hours to include lunch and dinner seemed an obvious next step. The menu is written on white boards because it changes daily to keep up with the seasons. Behind the counter and cash register, the kitchen is small, but bustling. A crackling fireplace invites guests in on chilly winter evenings, while a villa-inspired patio ushers them out into the summer sun for lunch. In European tradition, portions are on the small side, but satisfyingly rich and reasonably priced. Cafe Citti advertises itself as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;trattoria.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no satisfying English equivalent for this word, falling somewhere between restaurant and deli. Over the years, Cittiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking earned the sort of word-of-mouth cred that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bought. In Kenwood, on Highway 12, with its unassuming white façade and modest white sign, this local favorite almost seems to be hiding in plain sight. Instead of devoting excessive time and money to flashy stylings, Citti has focused intently on the food. He makes nearly all the ingredients himself, from prosciutto to the mozzarella. A rack of his salami is down to the last couple links. A moist chocolate cake stands to be sliced. In the back garden, black cabbage, grown from seeds brought from Italy, is almost ready to be made into zuppa alla frantoiana. Citti explains that if he could, he would probably be happy working for free. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to believe him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest challenge are the long hours,â&#x20AC;? he says thoughtfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really a challenge because I enjoy it. I always did. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy when people come and say this is like my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or better.â&#x20AC;? Cafe Citti is in the $19 prix fixe category for Sonoma County Restaurant Week. 9047 Sonoma Hwy. (Highway 12), Kenwood. 707.833.2690. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Rose McMackin &)

The Good Life Forestvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mosaic Restaurant a patchwork of culinary creativity ost kids who grow up in Forestville get the hell out of town as soon as they can. But Tai Olesky, the chef-owner of his hometownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mosaic Restaurant, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand why anyone would want to leave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been all over the world, and I personally think that this is the best place,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a small, podunk town; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last of the special towns. There is no Burger King here. I appreciate that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not homogenized.â&#x20AC;? Growing up, Olesky used to eat with his family at Chez Marie, a low-slung building on the short strip of his hometownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main street thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been a restaurant since 1958. When Olesky was 28 years old and an executive chef at the Hilton, his golden opportunity knocked. The owners of the old restaurant wanted to sell, and Olesky jumped in. Four and a half years later, lounging in a Western shirt and jeans on one of the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leather couches, Olesky, with longtime sous chef Michael Adams, has turned the modest, awningless storefront into a highly rated creative outlet for his culinary imagination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just getting better at what I do, since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m self-taught,â&#x20AC;? he says, sipping a day-off glass of Champagne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learn as I go. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lifelong craft.â&#x20AC;? The front door at Mosaicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the name plays on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ferraris to flip-flopsâ&#x20AC;? feel of the Russian River area, as well as Oleskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amalgamation of food philosophiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;opens immediately into a softly lit dining room, a quaint couch-and-coffee-table wine lounge and a large outdoor patio complete with a fire pit and giant Japanese maple and redwood trees. Dishes range from California cuisine with a world-fusion twist to unique house specialties. Be sure to ask for the locally grown mushroom special, an in-the-know secret thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on the printed menu: mushrooms, oil, shallots, Madeira, cream and herbs on toasted bread never tasted so good. A chicken sandwich with avocado aioli, bacon and sweet peppers redefines comfort food, but by press time might be replaced with something new. Olesky changes the menu seasonally, but one signature item stays. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried occasionally to retire the coffee-encrusted filet mignon with chocolate Cabernet demi-glace, but to no avail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were seriously upset,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. With a half-acre farm in Healdsburg and a one-acre farm at his house, just around the corner from Mosaic, Olesky sources as much as he can on his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have 200 varietals of tomatoes already sprouted right now,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have chickens; all the scrap from the restaurant feeds the chickens. We get their eggs for our house-made pastas and desserts. We do everything from scratch.â&#x20AC;? Owning a restaurant comes with the usual stresses, Olesky acknowledges, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the occasional charge that Mosaic is gentrifying Forestville that really chaps his hometown hide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not trying to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;change the faceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of Forestville,â&#x20AC;? he sighs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could I? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from here! This is for the community. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be pretentious or from somewhere else to make it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;better.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not better; it belongs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re no better than Carrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drive-In or the Forestville Club. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of place here, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a true community. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be right now.â&#x20AC;? Still an avid world traveler (Paris and Germany in the last year, the Superbowl in the last week), Olesky jokes that he â&#x20AC;&#x153;might be comfortableâ&#x20AC;? living in the south of France or northern Italy, but he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet found a spot on earth with more world-class farms and wineries within a 10-mile radius than Forestville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food and wine are my passion, my life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I live for,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I eat out, I love to forage, fish, go out to the coast. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m mostly a student of life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a pretty simple guy. I love all of West County, through and through. I really do. You either get it or you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. This is the good life. Forestville, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Good Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the motto here. I have to agree with that.â&#x20AC;?

ocated at the heart of downtown Petaluma, Risibisi offers authentic Italian dishes and an intimate dining atmosphere. Coming here can feel like being transported to a small northern Italian town, full of romance and brilliance. Since September 2006, Risibisi has offered high-quality service and a high-quality product for a reasonable price. Restaurant owner Marco Palmiere has a vision for culture, tradition and dining. Palmiere grew up in Trieste, just outside of Venice, Italy, and has a passion for dining and the fast-paced restaurant business, striving to create a cultural experience for customers. After living in California for nearly 20 years, he decided that Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy-going and approachable community made the area right for their restaurant vision. Serving local, organic foods and offering an alternative healthy way to dine has made Risibisi successful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The toughest thing about this business is finding the right person with the proper passion and attitude,â&#x20AC;? Palmiere says. Jacob Gamba, general manager and wine director, picks the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine collection, keeping his palate lively by tasting in Italy each year. The collection of over 300 wines is kept in a climate-controlled cellar, and is divided between 70 percent Italian and 30 percent Californian wines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to have a role in helping the community get to know Italian wines,â&#x20AC;? Palmiere says. Chef Giuliana Valesi, who grew up in Tuscany, has been on board at the restaurant for a year. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven her culinary talent with a crowd-pleasing menu inspired by the nearby coast and made up of seafood specialties. Seafood still comes second to the restaurant favorite risotto, a staple dish for Italian cuisine, and the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake, â&#x20AC;&#x153;risibisi,â&#x20AC;? a peas and rice comfort food of the area. Valesi also prepares all of the desserts in-house and has full reign over the menu. Palmiere is looking to expand and open another restaurant by 2011, as well as launch and become competitive in the catering market this year. In order to stay on top in the business, restaurant employees are taught to ask themselves, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would we be a successful restaurant in Italy?â&#x20AC;? Palmiere refers to Italians as the masters of the Slow Food movement, as sitting down and eating healthy food with friends is part of the culture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you find good people everything falls into place.â&#x20AC;? Risibisi is in the $39 prix fixe category for Sonoma County Restaurant Week. 154 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 707.776.7600. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Morgan Carvajal

C864AC0;4B ccording to ancient Chinese legend, the New Year came to be celebrated after an elderly man tricked a Nianâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a ďŹ erce beast and creature capable of swallowing several people in one biteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; into disappearing. Other New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditions see the celebration as a desire to observe the end of winter and fertility of spring. Today, the Chinese New Year is traditionally a 14-day celebration that is spent with family and marked by gift-giving.

Meet the Merchants Dylan and Tobe Sheldon: A Micro-Winery Love Story Come visit Dylan and Tobe in West Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smallest tasting room located in the Old Southern Pacific Rail Caboose in Gravenstein Station. Enter into our warm inviting tresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hip little den of hedonism to sip tasty wines, view work by local artists, tell stories, make friends and experience the difference a micro-winery makes. Winemaking grass roots style: After a whirlwind romance and a world tour of winemaking, the dream began. Sleeping on the floor of an abandoned winery, with only a borrowed basket press, purple feet and a passion for the ancient art of winemaking the 2003 vintage was born. We continue to craft unfiltered wines of elegance and character, with honesty and respect to the land, its people and the intricate dance of ushering grapes into wine. We invite you to celebrate this journey with us Thursday through Sunday Noon to 4:00p.m. or call and schedule a private tasting!

The Chinese calendar is a combination of the solar and lunar calendar, which explains why the holiday falls on a different date each year. This year, the ofďŹ cial Chinese New Year fell on Feb. 14, and rings in the Year of the Tiger. The Chinese New Year celebrations have their origins under the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.E.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;C.E. 25) rule. These ancient end-of-harvest celebrations included offering thanks to gods for good harvests and promises for a good crop in the following year. Varied festivals celebrated worships, superstitions and sacriďŹ ces. There are several stories about the origins of the 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac, but the essence of the story is that a higher being called on all animals to represent each month in the Chinese calendar, the ďŹ rst 12 to arrive were chosen. The Year of the Tiger represents the birth years of 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 and 2010. If born in a tiger year, one could have the characteristics of a shorttempered, adventurous, sensitive or emotional being.

Entrance is by donation only, and Mystic owners Ken Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell and his daughter Shennon really hope to be able to ship a big large swadge of cash off to the deserving people of Haiti soon. To learn more or to donate, go to www.restaurantshelpinghaiti.com. Mystic Theatre, 23 Petaluma Blvd. S., Petaluma. 707.765.2121. All of this dining for a good cause continues its bubble as the Napa Valley Opera House League sponsors its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dinner Is Servedâ&#x20AC;? beneďŹ t on Thursday, Feb. 25, to raise funds for the opera house. Like Sonoma County Restaurant Week (see Feature, p12), area restaurants have devised special prix ďŹ xe menus at set rates, beginning at the giddy ether of the French Laundry ($500 per diner) and drifting down to rates more acceptable to mere mortals as with La Toque ($200), Etoile ($150), Go Fish ($100) and Annalien ($75), among others. Prix ďŹ xe includes tax, tip and corkage and directly beneďŹ ts the good work of the Napa Valley Opera House. To learn more, go to www.nvoh.org/dis.

902: C>=HžB shen-faced and runnynosed is no way to be when considering the organoleptic evaluation of the vinous spirit, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;winetastingâ&#x20AC;? for yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;all in the cheap seats. Wineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charm lies in subtle scents, wafts of wood smoke, high notes softly sung from the spice rack. When the nasal cavity (disquietingly morbid, to call by name) is advertising no vacancy on a Monday evening in the offseason, wines good and lesser are reduced to unďŹ&#x201A;atteringly astringent grape juice.

Reminds me of one long winter in Oregon, when a freak ďŹ&#x201A;u laid me very low. When I at last untangled myself from the death-grip of that peculiar bug and cautiously renewed ties with old friends and solid foods, I found that the experience had, oddly enough, left me with a temporary inability to enjoy beer. Confused and distraught, I turned to the spirit world for answers. My roommate introduced me to a friend named Jim, who would proffer me great solace in the dark, rainy nights. Mr. Beam, thank you for being my angel. Since then, of course, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touched the stuff (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lie, but forgive me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bit under the weather). What say a few drams of whiskey to put me back in shape? With the rough-and-ready denomination â&#x20AC;&#x153;whiskey bar,â&#x20AC;? Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jack and Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is already one year old this week. Taking the former Ristorante Capri space and adding the adjacent shop as the bar, the exposedbrick walled ensemble is a suitably atmospheric â&#x20AC;&#x153;old townâ&#x20AC;? watering hole with stamped-tin-type ceiling. Otherwise, the decor is utilitarian/modern in browns and olive green, but most importantly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a straightforward and classy enough bar that it seems in no imminent danger of alienating everyone over 25 with a DJ dance party anytime soon. The choice spot is one upholstered booth, in the very back. Jack and Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offers tasting ďŹ&#x201A;ights, to get better acquainted with a few of their quickening selection of 170 bourbons and whiskeys. The bourbon ďŹ&#x201A;ight ($14) arrived with its own placemat, helpfully labeled with three hooch selections. First up, the Woodford Reserve had an intense, vaporous sherry aroma that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hint at the gunpowder-like ďŹ nish; thanks to a woozy weekend of NetďŹ&#x201A;ix, the ďŹ nal scene of Fight Club provided the perfect image. While the Eagle Rare 10-year beneďŹ ted from warm caramel and ligneous love notes of sweet oak, the Blantons bested the bunch with a charred air of campďŹ re pit the morning after, offering the kind of smooth, sweet ďŹ nish that makes the bones sing. The Irish whiskey ďŹ&#x201A;ight ($15) featured a Tyrconnell with the most unusual distinctive aroma of bay leaf, oak and citrus; a smooth Powers; and a Bushmillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Black Bush, which was a charcoal-scented, stout dram that reputedly paired well with the generous baked brie appetizer ($7). Done with ďŹ re water, coughing already into my elbow, I moved to a house cocktail, mint julep. Where else can I get a real mint julepâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;served in a pewter cupâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;without a roll of the eyes, a consultation of a dusty bartenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guide? Should one have a thirst for wine and the sound health to enjoy it, the list contains a really appealing selection at fair pricesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about double of winery retail, with a special local sparkling only plus-$15. Alas, there are always 160 more whiskeys and bourbons to sample, should my taste for wine take another turn for the worseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;although I do not hope to turn again.

BdQeTabXeT9^h Author T. C. Boyle on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wild Child,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; reprobates and yahoos By Gretchen Giles

C

. C. Boyle has a way of shaking things up in the North Bay without really trying. When the novelist, short story writer and UCSC professor came through town in 2003, it was to promote his locally contentious novel Drop City, partly set in a fictionalized amalgam of Wheeler and Morningstar ranches up in the wilds outside Occidental. Hazed then for loosely pulling together truth and tale, Boyle shrugged and underscored that he makes stuff up for a living. If his fiction comes perilously close to fact, so be it. Preparing to come through on Feb. 20 to support Wild Child, his new collection of short stories, Boyle finds himself again in the angry glare, this time somewhat surprisingly for his 1995 novel The Tortilla Curtain. A richly envisioned retelling of The Grapes of Wrath, Curtain juxtaposes the life of a politically correct Southern Californian couple against the tragic arc of an immigrant Mexican couple. In addition to natural disasters and plain old human foolishness, the text contains swear words and a rape. The book is currently on the Santa Rosa high school curriculum, and a parent has tried unsuccessfully to have the novel removed from the required reading list, causing many letters to the editor and much renewed discussion over the pluses and minuses of censorship. Boyle is wearily used to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the teachers wrote to me, and I wrote a

letter of support,â&#x20AC;? he explains by phone from a book tour stopover in Denver, Colo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The educators should be the ones picking the books, not a single yahoo parent. This is a knee-jerk reaction among parents who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand what the book means, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re acting from their own fears and prejudices.â&#x20AC;? Fear, prejudice, natural disasters and plain old human foolishness are among the recurring themes for this prolific author, a writer who has come to define Southern Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tight fight with nature (he lives in Santa Barbara), as well as one who illuminates such historical figures as Frank Lloyd Wright (The Women), Alfred Kinsey (The Inner Circle) and Dr. John Henry Kellogg (The Road to Wellville). His new collection, Wild Child, revisits the loose funky male voice that is a Boyle trademark, and in the title story, a restating of the so-called wild boy of Aveyron, looks at the tension between man and earth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It reminds me of that time when we were kids and mom was reading the Grimm stories to us at bedtime, and children were always being taken out and left in the woods, and, of course, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they were all starving to death and they had to get rid of them,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a scar on his throat, someone had tried to put him out of his misery, and so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one who grew up without acculturation and language. What is the distinction between us and the animals? We have language. But he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have language. So what makes him human?â&#x20AC;? But it is with the voice of the male

reprobateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the dude who tries to grow pot in Budding Prospects or the three buddies in the story â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greasy Lakeâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;where Boyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narrative ease is paramount. In the new story â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lie,â&#x20AC;? a young father who simply wants to go to the movies instead of to work tells an increasingly tall set of whoppers to his boss until he commits the final prevaricatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crime. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it like for Boyle to inhabit that slackerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a delicious feeling to coming up with stuff like that,â&#x20AC;? he chuckles, adding that he never knows where a story is going, not even a novel, until he gets there. Moreover, Boyle is that rare breed of author who enjoys touring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love to perform. I love to turn people on,â&#x20AC;? he enthuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Literature is something that should be alive, and I love to share that with kids, like the kids in Santa Rosa who read my stuff as an assignment instead of getting any of the subversive joy of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can intellectualize it forever and go to the university and the critics and all the theorists, but after all is said and done, it is an entertainment. What that yahoo woman said about Tortilla Curtain is secondary. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to entertain you, even if it horrifies you. We all have to try to address the world in our own way, and any work of art helps to make you feel something.â&#x20AC;? T. C. Boyle reads from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wild Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Dance Palace. 503 B St., Pt. Reyes Station. 7pm. $10. 415.663.1542.

Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lucky Penny takes over the Opera House

By David Templeton

C

he historic Napa Valley Opera House could be said to have it all: gorgeous 130-year-old architecture, an illustrious and colorful history, a multimilliondollar renovation and a strong reputation as the reigning destination for music and comedy in the Napa Valley. The one thing the opera house hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had since it reopened in 2003 is its own resident theater company. That is about to change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we first started thinking of launching our own theater company,â&#x20AC;? says Barry Martin of Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lucky Penny Productions, â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of our dreams was to someday call the Opera House our home, but we figured that would be three to five years down the road.â&#x20AC;? This week, after a couple of shows staged in various Napa locations, Lucky Penny launches its first full season at the Opera House, with Neil LaButeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incendiary battle-of-the-sexes comedy The Shape of Things. Directed by Martin, the show has just five performances and is driven by a creative online marketing campaign (anchored by a tasty video â&#x20AC;&#x153;trailerâ&#x20AC;? featuring the cast delivering some of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more delicious lines). Expectations are high for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get-to-know-you show at the Opera House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are incredibly fortunate,â&#x20AC;? says Martin, a community outreach coordinator for the city of Napa and a one-time Napa Valley radio station manager with a lifelong affinity for all kinds of theater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our first show at Lucky Penny established us as a company that sells out its shows,â&#x20AC;? he says, referring to 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twoweek production of Sam Bobrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s romantic comedy Baggage, performed inside the Napa Wine Trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s station. The show drew great word-of-mouth buzz and established Lucky Penny (named for a song from the movie

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We intend to be the next big thing in Napa.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Opera House is a busy place,â&#x20AC;? Martin laughs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so there was no way we were going to be able to do traditional three-weekend runs of our shows. We know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to do one-week runs of four or five days in a row.â&#x20AC;? Usually, in the case of those traditional multiweek runs, a theatrical show is expected to start off slow, and then build its audience through positive buzz and print and internet reviews. With just five consecutive performances, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a luxury that Martin and Bartolucci will not have. Fortunately, Lucky Pennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation having been established with their first two shows, the cast and crew are gambling that the new shows will build up enough moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; before the shows even open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt that The Shape of Things is a fairly well-known play,â&#x20AC;? Martin says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively new,â&#x20AC;? he adds of the 2001 play, made into a film directed by LaBute, starring Paul Rudd, Rachel Weisz and Gretchen Mol, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it has a strong following among young people. What we are hoping for is to find a way, with the shows we do, to satisfy the tried-and-true theater audience while also attracting younger audiences who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t routinely consider theater as one of their entertainment options.â&#x20AC;? The Shape of Things tells the story of three art-school students whose lives are changed when one of them becomes romantically linked to another student who sets out to perform a complete makeover on him. How much should a person be willing to change for the woman of his dreams? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the question at the heart of LaButeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play, and with dialogue that is both wicked and hilarious, LaBute has established himself as one of the most entertaining provocateurs in the business. In setting to challenge local audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of what theater is, Martin hopes to build an eclectic, pan-generational audience for future productions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say that we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t content to do the same things everyone else is doing,â&#x20AC;? Martin laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By being different, we intend to become the next big thing in Napa.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Shape of Thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Feb. 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;21 at the Napa Valley Opera House, 1030 Main St., Napa. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. $25. 707.226.7372.

THE BOHEMIAN



C

he 2010 collection of Oscarnominated short films, currently making the swift rounds of movie theaters before the Academy Awards broadcast on March 7, is its usual mixture of the magnificent and the mundane, the illuminating and the irritating. Those who f lock annually to the Oscar Shorts screening will find this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s familiar chasm wider than ever. Suburban parents bringing their children to see A Matter of Loaf and Death, the latest in the delightful Wallace & Gromit series, for instance, might be dismayed that more than half of the other short films nominated contain horrible beatings, illicit drugs, pointless shootings or untimely deaths. This is not surprising, as the very format of the short film limits the average filmmaker in extremity. In just 10 to 20 minutes, they aim for grand revelations on the human condition, a sharp whack of realism that in its brevity can carry an impact but risks coming off as unrealistic and didactic. A touch of this condition taints Kavi, an earnest 19-minute snapshot of child slavery in India that was made as a fundraising calling card for a longer film. Kavi is a young boy who sleeps on the barracks floor of an adobe brick plant, toils all day in the hot sun and dreams of attending school and playing cricket with other boys. Jailed and abused by the foreman, Kaviâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

eventual redemption is a feel-good ending to a serious issue of Third World child labor, thus making it a favorite to win the Oscar. Choosing what to reveal and when to reveal it is another dominant element of the short-film format, and in this The Door and Miracle Fish succeed. Suspense in The Door reigns from the get-go, as we see a family evacuating their home, unable to bring any belongings with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little did we know that the items we smuggled were time bombs,â&#x20AC;? says the narrator, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not until the final credits that we discover exactly why. Miracle Fish is even more effective in its structure. An Australian schoolboy who refuses to kiss his cigarette-smoking welfare mom goodbye in the morning is subject to taunts by bullies and resorts to lying about the fabulous presents heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten for his birthday. After a nap in the nurseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, he wakes up to a fantasy world where the school is abandoned; he eats free candy bars, rides a skateboard down the hall and doodles on chalkboards. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end is among this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most powerful surprises. Looking for a break to buy popcorn or powder your nose? The New Tenants is a gigantic dollop of pain, with a terrible script, no exact premise, thin, unsympathetic characters and endless blather. Skip this antagonizing exercise in forced edginess and return to the auditorium for Instead of Abracadabra, a charming, funny portrait of a klutzy budding magician with an eye patch who accidentally stabs his own mother in an illusion gone awry. With his Napoleon Dynamiteâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;esque designs on his attractive next-door neighbor and a humorously morbid magic act, the film is the lone, welcome comedy in the live-action collection. Animated shorts have their own clichĂŠsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a nonsensical torrential whirlwind of eye-popping, over-the-top animation is a common curse. Thankfully, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offerings are bereft of adrenaline-overdosed CGI anarchy, with the exception of Granny Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Grimmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sleeping Beauty, a typical nightmarish bedtime story that grinds on the senses like old brake pads. Chaos reigns supreme in Logorama, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chaos with a point. A nonstop comment on corporate dominance, Logorama cleverly creates an alternate Los Angeles made entirely from a dizzying landscape of corporate logos. Two filthy-talking Michelin men chase Ronald McDonald, with Colonel Sanders, the Jolly Green Giant, the Pillsbury Dough Boy and Mr. Peanut in tow. A Starbucks coffee falls on the ground and splats into the Nickelodeon logo. Buildings represented by the Bear Stearns, AIG and Freddie Mac logos crumble in an earthquake. Fun, fun, fun. The Antonio Banderasâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;produced Lady and the Reaper is a swift romp on doctors and death, and Wallace & Gromitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matter of Loaf and Death plays on all of the classic, entertaining tropes of its franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Wallace as the oblivious romantic, Gromit as the hapless sidekick. Finally, French Roast manages to be both a biting caricature of class and a comment on so-called victimless crimes at the same time, with a wonderful twist ending. The Oscar Nominated Short Films open on Friday, Feb. 19, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas (551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa; 707.525.4840) and the Smith Rafael Film Center (1118 Fourth St., San Rafael; 415.454.1222).

Day of Remembrance

ProtegĂŠs

On Feb. 19, 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing the relocation of Japanese Americans from their homes and into internment camps. The episode remains a black spot on American history, and especially so in Sonoma County, where anti-Chinese sentiment from the previous century had not yet abated (a banner over the intersection of Fourth and Mendocino in 1886 notoriously proclaimed â&#x20AC;&#x153;THE CHINESE MUST GO. WE MEAN STRICTLY BUSINESSâ&#x20AC;?). The Santa Rosa Symphony this weekend commemorates the disinterred of Sonoma County with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cause and Consequence: Music in Remembrance of the Japanese American Internment,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a program of chamber pieces by Japanese composers, drumming by Sonoma County Taiko and a discussion between Press Democrat reporter emeritus and local treasure Gaye LeBaron and Marie Sugiyama, a survivor of the Amache Camp in Colorado on Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Jackson Theater. 4400 Day School Place, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$32. 707.546.8742.

Every famous artist, singer or writer, it seems, eventually discovers an underexposed talent along the career trail. Mos Def opened his show in San Francisco last week lipsynching along to Georgia Anne Muldrow, and several years ago, Leonard Cohen made a stab at promoting Anjani, a young singer to whose album he produced and lent his name. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no major surprise that Amy Tan, author of 1989â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakout Joy Luck Club, should bring her recent discovery to Mill Valley this weekend: Pascal Toussaint, a young cabaret singer from Paris with one of those absolutely incredible voices that never broke at puberty. Comparisons to Jimmy Scott arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite proper, as Toussaintâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phrasing is dramatically clipped, but no less moving. Tan appears in conversation with Jane Granahl, founder of S.F.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Litquake, to talk about luck, talent and the great breakthrough, while Toussaint makes his American stage debut on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre (where Dana Carvey showed up out of the blue last week!). 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley. 7:30pm. $16â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 415.383.9600.

The 71-year-old organist and singer best known for his 1960s role in the Doors has since kept a sharp eye on the underground, first by producing the great L.A. punk band X and now, taking up residency in the Napa Valley, by appearing in a recent video shoot for Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indie sensations Body or Brain. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much the coolest thing in the world, but his involvement doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there. As a judge at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Battle of the Bands at the Napa Valley Opera House, Manzarek showered praise on Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bestdressed dudes the Subtones, calling them â&#x20AC;&#x153;a great dual-guitar rock band with a rockidol frontman and catchy songs.â&#x20AC;? And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. The Subtones recall the heyday of the Jam or, strangely enough, the Undertones, with the upbeat, Strokes-by-way-of-JoeJackson â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Time,â&#x20AC;? and even channel some of Jim Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s psychedelic drone on â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Other Feeling.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve helped build the new Napa scene, and they play with the Gees and Apples Atlas on Thursday, Feb. 18, at Bilcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. 1234 Third St., Napa. 7pm. Free. 707.226.7506.

How often do we get the chance to see a world-class band that plays some of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stages in a small club, on our lunch break, for free? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what happens this Thursday when the funky groove-jam band A.L.O. stop in for a free noontime concert sponsored by the KRSH 95.9-FM at Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hopmonk Tavern. Recent bookings for A.L.O. include the majestic Fox Theater in Oakland, the Roseland Theatre in Portland, the Showbox in Seattle, the Troubadour in Hollywood and the Fillmore in San Francisco. What the heck are they doing playing Hopmonk? Chalk it up to the folks at the Krush, who deserve a big hand for bringing to town, over the years, everyone from Donovan Frankenreiter to James Hunter in their free noontime concert series. How about the Arcade Fire? Or My Morning Jacket? Ah, well, a guy can dream. In the meantime, A.L.O. play for free on Thursday, Feb. 18, at Hopmonk Tavern, 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. Noon. Free. 707.829.7300.

A Musical Journey from Danteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Divine Comedy

Saturday, February 27th â&#x20AC;˘ 8pm

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Godfather of Austin Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; W. C. Clark plays I-10 Music Series tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just music only. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anybody wrongâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell a lie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something to listen to, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all,â&#x20AC;? says 70-year-old guitarist W. C. Clark, discussing his Texas blues/Memphis soul sound by phone from Austin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mix it up and read the crowd and see where they are, and go in that direction.â&#x20AC;? Clark and his band of over 30 years, the Blues Revue, visit Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Last Day Saloon on Feb. 19, part of KRSH DJ Bill Bowkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new I-10 Music Series, titled, Bowker says, after â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Southern route that goes from L.A. to Florida.â&#x20AC;? Southern music will be presented monthly at various locales, along with drink specials ($2 PBRs, $3 bourbon) and food deals ($5 for a plate of soul food). Born in Austin in 1939, Clark escorted his grandmother to and from church as a boy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was around all that choir singing,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but there were always guys, off on the side, playing the blues somewhere, and I was with both of them.â&#x20AC;? As a teenager, he was exposed to a vibrant Austin blues scene at clubs such as the Victory Grill and Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playhouse, where he joined people like B. B. King, Freddy King, Bobby Bland and James Brown onstage whenever they passed through town. After touring the southern â&#x20AC;&#x153;chitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; circuitâ&#x20AC;? with Joe Tex, Clark returned to Austin and hooked up with Jimmie Vaughanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band, Texas Storm, his ďŹ rst experience with a mixed-race band. Clifford Antone opened his club there, where, Clark says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;blues musicians could be free. I was one of the oldest players around Austin and still am. Any musician who could play, who came from out of town, I would put them in my band.â&#x20AC;? Clark is hailed as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godfather of Austin Blues,â&#x20AC;? a role he says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoyed. Like his father, Clark was a mechanic by trade. Stevie Ray Vaughan frequented the auto shop, eventually convincing Clark to quit and play bass for his new band, Triple Threat. This four-year collaboration included co-writing credit for the hit song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cold Shot.â&#x20AC;? Other highlights of Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career include four Blues Music Awards, an international blues award in France, and several appearances on Austin City Limits. Though he later recorded for major blues labels like Black Top and Alligator, Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst self-produced and written album didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come until 1986. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were having so much fun,â&#x20AC;? he explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and not thinking so much about expanding over the world.â&#x20AC;? W. C. Clark expands over our world with Bill Noteman and the Rockets on Friday, Feb. 19, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8:30pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$18. 707.545.2343.

G^dC^YdGdVY]djhZ THE BOHEMIAN

eenagers turn 18 and get tattoos, but bands like Medeski, Martin & Wood turn 18 and get box sets. A badge of honor for any band, but especially for one as risk-taking and exploratory as the avant-soul-jazz trio, Radiolarians isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your ordinary box set repackage job. The set features five CDs, two LPs and a DVD of material recorded over the last few years, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as vibrant and alive as MM&W were when they burst on the scene in the 1990s. For the band, the premise was simple: write a set of music, play the hell out of it on tour, and get home and record it while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-oiled. Radiolarians is a limited set sold on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current West Coast tour, which hits the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma on Feb. 23. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an 18-and-over show, which means that those in their late teens learning how to play piano, organ, bass or drums can witness three masters of their game. From the early soul-jazz grooves of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early records to a more improvised approach on their Blue Note output, MM&W have never been short of an inspirationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with a backbeat you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose. Rooted in the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jazz leanings is a need to commingle nightly onstage, and MM&Wâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turned stale, primarily because each member is rabid about side projects. Keyboardist John Medeski has been recently playing with guitar maniac Marc Ribot and a slew of Russian musicians; drummer Billy Martin is conducting a forum on drummers-as-leaders next month; and bassist Chris Wood plays and sings folksy bluegrass with his brother in the Wood Brothers. After each dalliance, their union is stronger and richer than ever. See for yourself when Medeski, Martin & Wood return on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the Mystic Theatre, 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$32. 707.765.2121. Gabe Meline

THE BOHEMIAN



By Bruce Robinson

<

ost songwriters are hardpressed to explain where their music comes from. Ray Wylie Hubbard once summed it up as an equation: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inspiration and craft plus time and effort minus fear and doubt, multiplied by purpose equals song.â&#x20AC;? That summation appeared in his comments about the songs of his 2001 release, Eternal and Lowdown, but it could be applied just as accurately to his newest CD, a powerful, stripped-down set with the unwieldy title A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There Is No C). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still believe that,â&#x20AC;? he affirms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Removing your fear and doubtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is so important, because then you have the freedom to find that inner creativity to write about whatever you want to.â&#x20AC;? For Hubbard, a seasoned practitioner, that compositional urge can be triggered by anything from a tornado he experienced as a child to the simple satisfaction of beating on a pan with a stick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, I can drive by a snake farm and write a song,â&#x20AC;? he laughs, referring to the title song of his previous record, Snake Farm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I can find inspiration. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all around, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re conscious of itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just look around

and see something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting,â&#x20AC;? he continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So yeah, I can write a song about pretty much anythingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;wasp nests, opium, the Four Horsemen. This album kinda proves it, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it?â&#x20AC;? With a song devoted to each of those subjects, A. Enlightenment readily confirms that assessment, while applying spare, sometimes strongly percussive musical settings to his plainspoken observations. The feral rhythms of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pots and Pansâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoop and Hollarâ&#x20AC;? evoke the primal field workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chants recorded by musical anthropologist Alan Lomax some 70 years ago, while songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Down Home Country Blues,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drunken Poetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dreamâ&#x20AC;? and the title track ride on surging, full-band treatments. At the same time, the arid emptiness of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opiumâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypseâ&#x20AC;? seems rooted in the dustbowl plains where Hubbard grew up, steeped also in the rich imagery and musical traditions of the Southern church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite understand what was going on at the time, but I could see the power of it,â&#x20AC;? he reflects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So it still stays with me.â&#x20AC;? Now 65, Hubbard says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been making music ever since â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made that decision back in my 20s that I was going to hang my life on this old guitar,â&#x20AC;? he says. But for a long time, his only claim to fame as a writer was a rowdy half-joke popularized by Jerry Jeff Walker. Hubbardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up Against the Wall, Redneck Motherâ&#x20AC;? became his musical albatross. For years after it appeared on Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakthrough Viva Terlinuga record, he elaborates, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go into a club and people would say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redneck Mother,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d play it. Then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another song I wrote,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redneck Motherâ&#x20AC;? again.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since made peace with the old tune. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now today, it fits in my arsenal very well, because I have all these other songs. I enjoy it now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good card to have in your hand, a trump card.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only thing he sees differently these days, two decades into what could be characterized as the second act in his biography. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, the first act was a really bad Tennessee Williams play,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Either that or Paradise Lost, I suppose. Up until I turned 41. On my 41st birthday, I got clean and sober. The second act, the last 20 years, has been a really good act.â&#x20AC;? Hubbard attributes his turnaround to the dual circumstances of hitting â&#x20AC;&#x153;emotional, mental, physical and spiritual bottom,â&#x20AC;? and the timely intercession of fellow Texas musician Stevie Ray Vaughn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stevie was the first guy Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen who had gotten sober but still had an incredible edge to him,â&#x20AC;? Ray recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had all the fun I could stand and it was time to change my thinking. Try to have that psychic change that they talk about. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, I probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I have the tools today to play the game in a positive way,â&#x20AC;? he continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a quote from my wife: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The days that I can keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, I have really good days.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I try to do.â&#x20AC;? Ray Wylie Hubbard plays with Mary Gauthier on Friday, Feb. 26, at the Sebastopol Community Center. 390 Morris St., Sebastopol. 8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$30. 707.829.7067.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Black / Jew Dialoguesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; challenges racial bias arry Jay Tish and Ron Jones were two actors who booked themselves into the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before they even had a script. They did, however, have an idea. Namely, that the black and Jewish communities, once united by exile and persecution, had grown increasingly apart since the 1970s. How could they convey the need to repair that growing rift? And while they were at it, address the need to heal all people while sparking a serious discussion? But, you know, have it be funny too? The bar was set high, and after writing furiously in a hotel room for three days straight, the duo emerged with â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Black / Jew Dialogues,â&#x20AC;? a series of sketch-vignettes that explore prejudice and bias head-on. The show was an instant hit, and for the last four years Tish and Jones have been criss-crossing the country performing what Jones calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;an American cultural discussion about the changing face of who we are.â&#x20AC;? Using comedy to cover a timeline from the Pharaohs in Egypt to gangsta rap, Jones remains resolutely serious about the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people hear that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about race in America, they freak out,â&#x20AC;? he says on the phone between East Coast tour stops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They see King Kong knocking over buildings and kicking over cars, and everyone is terrified that the very idea that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have this conversation is going to destroy us all. But we say this in the show, everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dirty here in America, everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stepping on somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neck, just like at some point, someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been stepping on your neck.â&#x20AC;? The show itself, featuring over-the-top stereotypes laid bare for all their lunacy, lasts about an hour. What happens afterward is the insisted-upon discussion time, where Jones and Tish moderate a frank, open discussion about peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prejudices. This discussion sometimes lasts longer than the show itself, and Jones says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned an enormous amount about people by just listening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing that resonates very strongly in me is that a lot of the fear, angst and concerns that people have across the country are pretty uniform,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same thing coming from all corners in the country. People are worried about getting theirs, so to speak. People hate the idea that somebody is getting something for nothing.â&#x20AC;? Be a part of the laughter and discussion at â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Black / Jew Dialoguesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Thursday, Feb. 18, at Warren Auditorium, Sonoma State University, 1801 E. Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. 7pm. $5; SSU students, free. 707.664.2382.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Blood into Wineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; documents Toolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maynard James Keenanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winemaking lood into Wine is a documentary about Maynard James Keenan, the singer from Tool, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, and his experiment making wine from the limestone and volcanic ash-riddled soil in Jerome, Ariz., where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hung his hat since 1995. Rock stars making wine is not a new concept, but Keenan has a refreshing obliviousness combined with a down-to-earth passion throughout a film thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long on vineyards and short on such songs as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prison Sexâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stinkfistâ&#x20AC;? that helped define Keenan to his many fans. As he says to the camera, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out here digging in the dirt. No dogcollared, eyeliner chicks allowed.â&#x20AC;? Keenan and his partner Eric Glomski, pictured above, spend much of the film debunking myths about Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dry climate and barren soil, and successfully convincing writers from Vinography and Wine Spectator that their crazy experiment in the desert is worthwhile. In one of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most moving scenes, Keenan breaks down talking about his mother, who lived as an invalid for 29 years before passing away in 2003; later, when the Spectatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James Suckling tastes the wine named for her, opens his eyes wide and approvingly exclaims â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finally!,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard not to share in the emotional victory. Familiar passages on the winemaking process will bore most Sonoma County residents; this is a documentary for the Tool fans who lined up at Whole Foods markets last year to have their bottles of Keenanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caduceus label signed in person. Much of it comes off as an advertisement for them while being a critique of the snooty wine world (â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a Wal-Mart-y palate, you have a Wal-Mart palate,â&#x20AC;? Keenan says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine. You have to trust what you like.â&#x20AC;?). References to The Royal Tenenbaums and tipsy talk with actress Milla Jojovich and comedian Patton Oswalt, who offers Keenan offbeat marketing tips, enforces the left-field approach. Whether or not Tool fans will embrace the documentary is dependent on how far theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been willing to follow Keenan thus far. Perpetually uncomfortable with fame, the singer uses a recurring fake talk show and a blatantly staged reality-show pitch in the film to underscore his unease. One thing rises above these gimmicks, though, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keenanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honest, no-bullshit passion. He says it best when discussing what Tool fans can get out of his new career: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll discover a world that has more to do with wine and art and cuisine,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;than with short-tempered rock stars.â&#x20AC;? Blood into Wine screens on Friday, Feb. 19 at 7pm and Sunday, Feb. 21 at 4pm. Raven Film Center. 415 Center St., Healdsburg. 707.522.0330. Gabe Meline

Preservation forums seek to goose some intellectual life into the valley ny time something happens in Napa beyond merely putting stuff in your mouth, we at the Bohemian get all happy and girlish. And indeed, the formerly vacant valley is increasingly showing signs of cultural life, making us preternaturally happy and girlishâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, at least some of the time. And so it is with the four-part Preservation Napa Valley forums that begin on Thursday, Feb. 18, and stretch through next November. Inviting community members to gather to discuss the past and future of the Napa Valley, Preservation Napa begins with a night devoted to monocropping, that tourist-positive earthanomaly that begins and ends with hundreds of acres of self-pollinating vineyards and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave much room for actual food production, let alone bees, owls, birds and other former valley denizens. Drawing together vintners, ranchers, a state parks representative and Napa County Agriculture Commissioner Dave Whitmer, this initial meeting is scheduled for the comfy confines of the Silverado Brewing Co. (which, no fear, will provide stuff to put in your mouth). The May 6 forum looks at the city of Napa as it transforms from a sleepy blue-collar village to a worldclass dining destination with the revamping of the riverfront area. July 15 wonders whither Pope Valley, seeing it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;blank canvasâ&#x20AC;? for smart development, and the final Nov. 4 forum looks at the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agricultural heritage through the prism of its current transformation. Heady stuff, all, and entirely worthy of putting into oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy and sometimes girlish brain. Preservation Napa kicks off on Thursday, Feb. 18, at the Silverado Brewing Co., 3020 St. Helena Hwy., St. Helena. 6pm. Free. 707.258.9286 or www.preservationnapavalley.org. Gretchen Giles

Missed Connections AMAZON KINDLE Hello, I met you Friday June 27 at the Russian River Brewing Company on Fourth St. in Santa Rosa. She may be a computer programmer from St. Helena Hospital and watched on this day 3 movies back to back in the theater on Fourth St. in the town of Santa Rosa The Love Guru by Mike Meyers, Wall-E and another film. And she sipped a little beer and read from her Amazon kindle. I would like to get in touch with this girl and ask her to edit my book. She is a perfect candidate for my book. Hope to hear from you.

TOUGH TIMES THINKING STAYING POSITIVE IN A NEGATIVE WORLD

 3ECOND ST 3UITE  3AN 2AFAEL s 9/'! s WWWSANRAFAELYOGACOM We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change because we see the lightâ&#x20AC;Śwe change because we feel the heat. So what are you waiting for? 2010 is your time to change your body, change your life! The Bikram beginning practice is suitable for beginners and advanced yogis appealing to both men and women of all fitness levels.

With local Author & Speaker Steven Campbell 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm Mary Agatha Furth Center, Windsor CA

Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa  7ILSON 3TREET 3ANTA 2OSA s 9/'! s WWWBIKRAMOFSANTAROSACOM

5:30 pm to 6:00 pm ~ Registration & Light Appetizers 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm ~ Workshop 8:30 pm ~ Q&A and Author book signing

Bikram's Yoga system will reshape and heal your body while it relieves stress and tension. The Bikram Method of Hatha Yoga is a demanding series of 26 postures, done in a heated room and meant to be performed in the given order, to the best of one's ability. A principle of the class is that one can learn to steadily make new demands of oneself, to work harder, deeper, yet calmer.

All proceeds go to the The Drug Abuse Alternatives Center Perinatal Day Treatment Program Helping Mothers Saving Babies Suggested donation ~ $25 per person

(Regular price $75 per person for this Workshop) Sonoma County resident Steven Campbell has spent the past 20+ years studying how the brain works. This past spring, he released his third book, Making Your Mind Magnificent: Flourishing at Any Age. He now leads a series of workshops and presentations throughout California based on the concepts in his book. Stevenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work can be boiled down to this simple, yet oh-so-hard-to-change idea: The Brain accepts what we tell it without question! Once we learn how to change the way we think (the emphasis of Stevenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workshop), we will literally change our lives in that very instant! Steven is a volunteer at DAAC, hosting on-going educational programs at the Perinatal and Turning Point Residential Programs
