D=2>=B834A43Âź>HBC4A½. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recently gone out on the diving boardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; aloneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to sing the praises of the Bohemianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editorial courage re supporting investigative journalism. Ouch! The thin, under-investigated oyster story by Daniel Hirsch (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consider the Oyster,â&#x20AC;? July 15) is my embarrassment. Hirschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;investigationâ&#x20AC;? got him as far as Fred Smith, the good-looking, charming, paid employee of the West Marin Environmental Action Committee. Smith is besotted with the zealots, and the fact that they pay him is determined to kick out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;commercialâ&#x20AC;? biz in the Point Reyes seashore, i.e., Drakes Bay Oyster Company. Smith overlooked completely the fact that the zealots enthusiastically support tourism in the wilderness. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come on down to Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay for summer fun!â&#x20AC;?) Hirsch swallowed hook line and sinker the aerialphotos propaganda, shown to him no doubt by the talkative petitioner, that appear to be devastating

the eel grass. Hello! That narrow channel is the track taken by all small craft to go around the oyster beds. Furthermore, the eel grass has doubled over the years. Oysters do not pollute, Mr. Hirsch. In fact, there are projects nationwide that introduce oysters in order to clean water. You should have at least talked to Kevin Lunny, the owner of the oyster farm, being the good reporter you are. He is easily accessible. Why are you so eager to believe the zealots? Why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you asking questions that include: Is this a land grab? Will structures be built to house â&#x20AC;&#x153;wildernessâ&#x20AC;? visitors in the future? Please visit the oyster farm and see for yourself the low impact, hands-on, Slow Food, environmentally fabulous biz it is. The year-round tourists absolutely adore the oyster farm. Duh!

9>70==0;H=27 20I034A>

Daniel Hirsch responds: Thanks so much for your impassioned response to my article. The environmental

impact of oysters at Drakes Estero is certainly a complicated issue, and you are correct in pointing out (as my article also does) the long history of disputed and refuted scientific claims. I would have loved to talk with Kevin Lunny about his farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practices, but after repeated phone calls to his office, I got word that he had left town for Tahoe and never did return my calls. Given this paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history of positive coverage of Mr. Lunny and his business, we let this omission slide for press time. Additionally, I only had the opportunity to speak with Fred Smith over the phoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if we had known Mr. Smith was as charming and as good-looking as you claim, he probably would have been on the cover.

5D==H8=B867C5D;ÂźFA4C27½ Regarding David Templetonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wretch Like Meâ&#x20AC;? (July 15): It was long. (Maybe too long for a publication?) But I liked it very much. Very insightful. Very funny. Good points made. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see a performance. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there are things that one doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick up from the printed page. I had a similar experience, having been a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus freakâ&#x20AC;? in college and gradually becoming a rational atheist. So I identified with much of what was said. I thank you for having the chutzpah to publish it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many fundamentalists read the Bohemian, but if any do, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get some flak. And thanks to David T. for having the chutzpah to write and perform it.

It has been most interesting having Pegasus Theater performing in the sanctuary of the Guerneville Community Church (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nomad Company,â&#x20AC;? July 8). For one who is a member of that church, it is amazing to me how Pegasus has been able to transform our sanctuary into a playhouse and then put the altar and cross hanging over it back so we can have Sunday service. The walls of the church are hung with black curtains and the pews are screwed around, but other than that we feel quite normal. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen Driving Miss Daisy, you still have a few days left, and then you really should come to church on Sunday to see the transformation. Congratulations to Pegasus!

Plans to harness the oceanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power raise questions from biologists, surfers and even philosophers. After all, can you own the sea? By Alastair Bland

ust off the Sonoma County coast, floating fleets of wave-powered generators could soon begin bolstering the local grid with clean electricity, if the plans of the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) go smoothly. In April, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) accepted the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit application for launching an experimental wave energy project at three marine sites between Jenner and Sea Ranch. The next step for the agency is to submit an environmental impact report, and if FERC approves the final proposal, hundreds of marine generators could become part of the near-shore seascape in as little three years. But SCWA, which is pursuing a goal of

going carbon-neutral by 2050, is likely to see opposition to the renewable energy project, modeled loosely after wave farms off the coasts of Scotland and Portugal. Already, fishermen are questioning how navigation and ocean access might be impacted near or within the wave arrays which will each occupy swaths of sea as large as 20 square miles and between one-half and three miles from shore, and others have raised concerns about how the generators could impact the marine ecosystem and wildlife. Likely, there will be no access. At the Farallon Institute, president and research scientist Bill Sydeman believes the subsurface cables, noise and electromagnetic fields associated with the wave arrays could be problematic for migrating gray whales, perhaps steering them off their migration routes or even causing collisions. Above the water,

navigational warning lights on the generators may attract or otherwise disturb birds, he says. Cordel Stillman, SCWA capital projects manager, says the county is preparing an environmental impact report that will address all concerns. Many parties have objected to the wave energy plan for reasons which may or may not eventually prove to be valid concerns, says Stillman. The wave energy farms are likely to be restricted zones for boaters, and members of the local fishing fleet have mixed feelings. Zeke Grader, director of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association, says the fishing industry has a pointed interest in seeing alternative energy sources begin to replace the power that currently comes from â&#x20AC;&#x153;fish-killing dams,â&#x20AC;? which have impacted the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salmon runs in %-

particular. The wave farms, however, could displace fishermen from favored fishing grounds and force them to take circuitous routes, making travel time longer and perhaps more dangerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said no to offshore oil and gas drilling in California, and that was the right thing to do,â&#x20AC;? Grader says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have to see if we can generate wave energy while protecting access to fishing and without creating navigational hazards.â&#x20AC;? Experts have estimated that the generators will absorb between three and 15 percent of the power in passing waves, producing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;wave shadowâ&#x20AC;? in the lee of the generators. These wave shadows will span outward behind each apparatus, dispersing and diluting the reduction in wave power across a broad length of shoreline. With hundreds or thousands of generators contributing to the effect, however, the energy reduction of the breakers could be substantial. This, says John Largier, a professor of oceanography at UC Davis and a researcher at the Bodega Marine Lab, will affect the mechanics and the biology of the surf zone, perhaps especially so along beaches or in other depositional environments, like muddy-bottomed estuaries or river mouths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ecosystems really need waves,â&#x20AC;? Largier says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barnacles, for example, that are high in the surf zone might dry out on the rocks if that splashing effect is reduced just a little. Just a slight change could tip the balance.â&#x20AC;? Many North Coast rivers, like the Russian, remain closed by a sand berm for much of the year. Migrating salmonids require periodic breaches of the barrier to enter and exit these river systems, but in the absence of heavy waves, a river mouth could potentially remain closed during a crucial migration time. But of all the groups with an interest in seeing Pacific swells touch bottom and break on the shore, surfers may have the greatest personal investment and most substantial reason to fear the effects of the wave farms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wave arrays that they establish and where they put them could block the south swell and diminish wave size,â&#x20AC;? says Mike Frey, chairperson of the Sonoma County chapter of Surfrider, a California-based nonprofit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our somewhat selfish standpoint, but cutting down on wave height and speed could really diminish the experience [of surfing]. A 10 percent reduction of strength might not seem like much, but it could make the difference between a place being surfable or not.â&#x20AC;? Frey and other surfers also wonder how the generators may inadvertently excite great white sharks, known by researchers to respond behaviorally to electromagnetic activity in the water. But even as the conversation of the pros and cons gains volume, wave power technology remains in its early infancy and no one yet knows how exactly the wave arrays will work. Several dozen companies are currently vying for the contract to produce the still very hypothetical generators, but four types of machines show particular promise. One, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;oscillating water column device,â&#x20AC;? features a cylinder that fills with water as each wave passes, forcing air through a turbine. Another model, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;attenuator,â&#x20AC;? is an elongated series of multi-segmented buoys that float on the surface parallel to the path of the waves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Point absorbersâ&#x20AC;? float on the surface and absorb wave energy regardless of

the direction of origin. And â&#x20AC;&#x153;overtopping devicesâ&#x20AC;? float facing oncoming waves, which pour into an open basin as each swell crests, forcing internal turbines into motion. Richard Charter, a government-relations consultant with Defenders of Wildlife, has spent three decades fighting offshore-oildrilling interests and believes firmly in the need for alternative energies, but he says that the corrosive power of saltwater is sure to be a tremendous challenge toward establishing successful wave farms. Even the waves themselves could overwhelm the generators, damaging them or ripping them from place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can this technology survive our worst winter storms?â&#x20AC;? Charter asks, recalling watching a 90-foot breaker explode over a Sonoma County cliff in early 1982 and wash an occupied sedan into a field upslope. A so-called wave rush has surged over Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Coast in recent years as such corporations as Chevron and PG&E have applied for permits to build wave farms off Humboldt and Mendocino counties. Sonoma County leaders, meanwhile, have watched this encroachment of big businesses onto coastal waters and decided that if anyone would apply for a permit to build wave generators off the Sonoma Coast, the county itself would do so. Thus, SCWA quickly stepped up to apply for a permit in December, 2007. Three months later, FERC rejected the application, which had asked for permission to develop the entire coast of Sonoma County. The agency returned to the drawing board and drafted a smaller-scale plan, isolating three sites between Jenner and Sea Ranch on which to attempt the wave farms. Submitted in February, this application was accepted in April and the preliminary permits approved this month. The zoning and privatizing of the ocean for industrial purposes has resulted in a new concept called â&#x20AC;&#x153;marine spatial planning,â&#x20AC;? in which authorities, coastal residents, fishermen and other stakeholders must decide what areas are appropriate for marine industries. Commercial fisherman Mark Neugebauer doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it one bit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody should own the open ocean,â&#x20AC;? says Neugebauer, who once lived in Bodega Bay but now operates out of Fort Bragg. Here, PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently proposed wave array threatened to occupy one of the best and safest Dungeness crab fishing grounds in the region, though plans for the project have desisted in the last six months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to close the water for the wave farms, maybe theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just going to try and close it next for the oil companies,â&#x20AC;? Neugebauer. The government is not particularly keen on fueling wave energy research, as seen recently when federal stimulus money was diverted to other renewable technology development, leaving wave energy planners in search of private venture capital. That, too, is scarce, says Charter, as the slumping economy drags its feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a mortgage on a house now, just try convincing someone to lend you money for an experimental eggbeater floating on the ocean.â&#x20AC;? Stillman says SCWA will pursue the project with caution. A series of public discussions and scientific investigations are sure to take place as project managers and coastal stakeholders weigh the pros and the cons of anchoring colonies of wave generators to the seafloor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If things go smoothly, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re three years away from a pilot project,â&#x20AC;? Stillman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pan out environmentally or commercially, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll drop it like a hot rock.â&#x20AC;?

By Richard Holober

aliforniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;cuts onlyâ&#x20AC;? budget deal is a horror. Doors will slam shut next year on 35,000 applicants to the California State University system. UC Regents previously cut 2009 freshman enrollments by 10 percent. Both university systems have approved 20 percent tuition and fee hikes since the start of 2009 that will squeeze more students out of higher education. Another $4 billion in new cuts to kindergarten through communitycollege education mean overcrowded classrooms, fewer teachers and tens of thousands of youths denied college entrance and jobtraining programs. Deep new cuts to health services will stop hundreds of thousands of poor children from obtaining health insurance. Many thousands of lowincome, frail, elderly and disabled persons will suffer reductions to in-home support programs. Local government services will reel from billions the state â&#x20AC;&#x153;borrowsâ&#x20AC;? from local property and transportation tax revenues. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe headlines that proclaim this a budget that everyone hates. Big oil and other profitable corporations made out like bandits. The budget deal leaves intact $2.5 billion in new tax breaks for the biggest corporations that were silently slipped into budget packages approved in 2008 and 2009. These tax cuts do nothing to encourage any worthwhile goals such as job creation. They are handouts, plain and simple, that politicians granted to business giants at the same time they were raising taxes on working Californians. The budget deal doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tax oil extracted in California. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the third biggest oilproducing state and the only one that fails to tax oil drilling. ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron and Occidental Petroleum are Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominant oil producers. They reported record combined profits of $95 billion in 2008, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay a penny to the state for the privilege of pumping oil from the ground. Instead, the budget deal gives big oil another win. Forty years after a massive oil spill off the Santa Barbara coast launched the modern environmental movement, the budget reopens that area to new offshore oil leases.

The two-thirds budget and tax adoption rules made a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cuts onlyâ&#x20AC;? budget inevitable. But acknowledging this sad truth does not answer the question of what went wrong. Republican lawmakers in Sacramento havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wavered in their devotion to cutting government services and deregulating business, even after voters delivered Republicans a devastating repudiation last November. The two-thirds rule gave the dwindling Republican minority a short-term tactical advantage in crisis budget talks, which they exploited. The minute Democratic leaders sequestered themselves into Gov. Schwarzeneggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;smoking tentâ&#x20AC;? to negotiate the closeddoor deal, the majority party and its progressive allies lost. Democrats will now produce the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of votes for a punitive budget. Republicans will likely offer up the handful of votes needed to enact the budget. Democrats will own this budget and Republicans will be free to disavow it. We are now a full year into crisis budget deals and do-overs. As the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy continues to worsen, budget assumptions will unravel yet again. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised to see a new round of midyear cuts before 2010. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolve now that crafting the best smoking-tent deal cannot substitute for a strategy in the next round of budget cuts. It will take a unified campaign by labor and progressive community-based constituencies, mobilizing around values that resonate with voters, to put us back on offense. The November 2008 realignment of American politics makes this a fight we can win. It is time to prepare for the long war to win budget and tax fairness that we can no longer avoid.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe headlines that proclaim this a budget that everyone hates. Big oil and other profitable corporations made out like bandits.

3^]½c1P]Z^]8c How B of A and other megalenders back coal to foul the world

By Juliane Poirier

used to wonder what really good surfers thought aboutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I mean, besides sharks. Now, after watching and watching again his brilliant YouTube video, I have a good idea about what at least one wave rider is thinking: letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alter global finance together. With sun-bleached hair and faded T-shirt, this tanned teenager says to the camera, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My name is Kyle Thiermann, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a surfer from Santa Cruz. And recently I went on one of the best trips of my life, to ConstituciĂłn, Chile.â&#x20AC;? Bam. Scene change to South America, downbeat to Chilean music and we dive under the surface of his purpose-driven vacation to see the stunning landscape and hear the charged voices of Chilean men and women who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a coal power plant built on their coastline any more than we would want one at China Camp or Goat Rock. Who is funding it? In part, Bank of America customers including those in Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties. Bank of America and Citigroup have long been funders of coal power; one bank-funded developer has even been implicated in the alleged murder of Colombian coal miners attempting to unionize. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disturbing to learn what your paycheck or your savings can do without your permission. A freshman majoring in green business, Thiermann explains in his video how B of A, using the combined funds from customersupplied deposits, loans money to coal corporations that develop plants around the world. Rainforest Action Network reports that the 150 new coal-fired power plants in development in the United States alone will â&#x20AC;&#x153;emit an estimated 600 million tons of greenhouse gases every yearâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;negate, in just 10 days of operation, Home Depotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to curb climate change by funding the planting of 300,000 trees across the country; negate, in just one month, Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investment of a half billion dollars to reduce the energy consumption and GHG emissions of their buildings by 20 percent over the next seven years; and negate, in just eight months, Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently passed legislation that would cut GHG emissions in new cars by

25 percent and SUVS by 18 percent starting in 2009.â&#x20AC;? The Rainforest Action Network has targeted the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest banks in an attempt to stop the funding of more coal power plants and to start funding alternative energy projects instead. In a phone interview, Thiermann explains that his video was a student project through Gaia University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been interested in banking before, but I got the idea when I learned that the only thing that might stop the [Los Robles] coal plant from going forward was if they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get funding from a bank,â&#x20AC;? Thiermann says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our dollars doing that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy for everyone to stop funding the problem and start funding healthy projects. All we have to do is put our money into local banks that fund local projects.â&#x20AC;? To accomplish his goal of educating the public about banking practices, Thiermann wrote a successful grant to the Carter Foundation, allowing him to take his surf board along with photographer Ryan Craig to Chile for interviews and some spectacular surfing on some of the best waves in the world. These same waves will be fouled along with the fishing industry if the Los Robles coal-plant is built. Presently, due to protests and activism, coal plant developer AES Gener has placed the Los Robles plant temporarily on hold because, yes, there appears to be a problem with funding. (In 2008, AESâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; utilities revenues in South America were over $6 billion.) Since his video was posted on July 7, Thiermann calculates the money moved from big banks to local ones amounts to about $350,000, and is growing. That number will jump into the millions, Thiermann says, when a Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based clothing company, Livity Outernational, moves its account from Bank of America to the San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based New Resources Bank. The owner of the company called Thiermann after seeing the video. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has a bank account,â&#x20AC;? Thiermann says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the easiest and most powerful tools we have to affect change in our community as well as worldwide.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disturbing to learn what your paycheck or your savings can do without your permission.

5a^VB^]V El Coqui cooks up a little bit of Puerto Rico in Sonoma County By Daniel Hirsch

C

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tiny species of tree frog that sings a song familiar to anyone who knows Puerto Rico, anyone who has phoned a relative at night and heard its familiar chirp in the background, evoking memories of and homesickness for that small Caribbean island: coqui, coqui, coqui. Named after the frog and its call, El Coqui is also Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only Puerto Rican restaurant, and since its opening last month, it seems to be working the same sort of magic as does the famed amphibian for which it is named. Those who know the frogâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are flocking to the restaurant in droves. El Coqui has been averaging about 300 customers a day and has seen lines out the door and around the corner. Sonoma County is not known for its large Puerto Rican community. But to the relative surprise of El Coquiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-owners Christina Jackson and Jacqueline Roman, a Puerto Rican community has been thriving, albeit quietly, in the North Bay.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before we started this, I would have said that there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many Puerto Ricans here,â&#x20AC;? Jackson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But as a result of doing this, Puerto Ricans are coming out of the woodwork for us.â&#x20AC;? Leaning over the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bar one Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a â&#x20AC;&#x153;slow nightâ&#x20AC;? that had every table full by 8pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jackson and Roman surveyed their new venture and the crowd of enthusiastic clientele. Around the room, customers worked away at large plates of garlicky fried plantains, tangy avocado salads and savory portions of meat. The mood was as lively as the salsa music that hummed softly from the stereo and the orange and green walls dotted with images of Celia Cruz, Ricky Martin, tropical beaches and a large Puerto Rican flag. El Coqui serves up classic island dishes like simple plates of white rice with fried eggs, stewed black beans and Spanish olives; thincut pork chips and plantain in all its authentic island varieties: mofongo, refried green plantain mashed with garlic; tostones, fried green plantain patties; maduros, sweet ripe fried plantain; and

canoas, whole sweet plantains fried, split down the middle and stuffed with seasoned beef and cheese. Puerto Rican food uniquely mixes the f lavors of all the various cultures that have inf luenced the island: Taino and Arawak Amerindians, Spanish, African and North American. Though not Puerto Rican herself, Jackson (who jokes that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Irishricanâ&#x20AC;?) points to a man seated at the head of a table of eight and remembers when she and Roman were first moving in and needed to rent a truck. When they told the man working the rental desk about the opening of El Coqui, he looked at them incredulously and responded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Puerto Rican, too!â&#x20AC;? The truck rental employee was not alone in excited identification with the new restaurant. When a local food blog reported their opening, Jackson and Roman received over 80 supportive posts on their MySpace page. Drivers honked by their Mendocino Avenue location while it was still under renovation, shouting, &+ THE BOHEMIAN

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hurry up and open!â&#x20AC;? When they handed out fliers at the Santa Rosa farmers market, they had dozens of people come up to them enthralled at the prospects of a Puerto Rican restaurant in Santa Rosa, because finally they could have the kind of food they used to eat at their family homes in San Juan or Brooklyn. For first-time restaurant owners Jackson and Roman, this was like music as sweet as the coquiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want this place to be like going to your grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a business,â&#x20AC;? Roman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want customers to feel like whatever they need, they can have.â&#x20AC;? At the very least, El Coquiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food will taste like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, because almost all the recipes come from Romanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own grandmother. Roman, a Queens native (and still a Yankees fan; a team decal sticks to the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back wall) grew up immersed in her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural traditions, spending summers with her grandmother in Puerto Rico. With her 16 brothers and sisters, she soaked up all the practical knowledge her grandmother had to offerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;everything from how to use a machete for picking coffee beans to old-school tricks for achieving the perfect ratio of water to rice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t measure my food; I do everything by eye,â&#x20AC;? Roman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just comes naturally to me.â&#x20AC;? Roman moved from New York to work at San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base. She ordered food for seven mess halls, feeding around 8,000 troops a day. After Pendleton, she sold produce, owned a furniture store, worked as a linen wholesaler and found her way to Rohnert Park. Selling linens and produce, Roman was often in contact with Sonoma County restaurants. From closely watching how restaurants operated, she began to wonder about committing herself fully to something she had done naturally since the age of nine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why is there not a Puerto Rican restaurant in Sonoma County?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So something crawled up my back and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you do it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I started talking to my mom about it and she kept saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do it. Do it. Do it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Roman also talked to her longtime friend Jackson about the financial implications of opening up a restaurant. Jackson, a manager at Bank of America in Santa Rosa, knew all too well the harsh realities of the restaurant business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will laugh at you if you walk into a bank saying you want to open a restaurant. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a loan. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 98 percent failure rate,â&#x20AC;? Jackson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some aspects, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really scary to do something in these times, but from another perspective, it provides an opportunity. We believed in the vision, and Jackieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking is fabulous and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a natural-born entertainer.â&#x20AC;? With commercial lease values dropping and failing restaurants selling off equipment for low prices, Roman and Jackson were able to afford all the initial startup costs without

seeking additional investors. Suddenly, their vision seemed feasible. However, it was not without challenges, least of which was the death of Romanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother to cancer just prior to El Coquiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was supposed to be here with us, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hard,â&#x20AC;? she says. Roman proudly explains that her mother, Carmen Rosa Medina, used to sing with the young Tito Puente at El Teatro PuertorriqueĂąo and points to two smiling framed portraits of her on either side of the restaurant. There were also the infinite logistical challenges and unexpected costs that come with opening any new restaurant. Roman and Jackson had no hint of the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overwhelming popularity. They had planned to do several soft openings with just family and friends, but Jackson says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as soon as people saw the lights on, they were lining up outside.â&#x20AC;? Unprepared for this onslaught, Roman and Jackson scrambled to get more staff and rework their own hours. It has been an exhausting endeavor, and Jackson still works full-time at the bank. Furthermore, in trying to stay as authentically Puerto Rican as possible, El Coqui requires many difficult-to-find ingredients and spices. With the largerthan-anticipated customer f low in their opening weeks, Roman and Jackson faced some daunting situations. However, what they also could not have predicted was the incredible support of the local Puerto Rican community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had many Puerto Rican people who have stepped up to help us,â&#x20AC;? Jackson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because they literally say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to see you succeed, how can we help, let us go to Oakland for you, let us go to Hayward for you. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go get the special this or special that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Without the support of the people who really stepped up to help us, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be.â&#x20AC;? Ismael Rivera, a Santa Rosa resident born in Puerto Rico, is one such community member. He makes the hot sauce for El Coqui while his wife makes their desserts. For Rivera, El Coqui has filled up a much longedfor absence: the flavors of his birthplace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been waiting for it for a long time,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as you walk in, you feel different, better.â&#x20AC;? As the Monday-night crowd wanes, Roman and Jackie wave at customers, turn up the music and instruct the waitstaff in the very precise way you should eat your plantain with meat. A group of young women by the bar tell the owners that they plan to make El Coqui a weekly tradition. When Roman asks them how the food was, they respond, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Como siempre.â&#x20AC;? As in: like always. Like they always eat plantains mashed with garlic, like they always enjoy meat cooked in a rich medley of spices, like just how grandma always used to make it in Miami, New York or San Juan. El Coqui Puerto Rican Cuisine, 400 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. Lunch and dinner daily. 707.542.8868.

7>C3>60??;4?84>7<H good oldfashioned cooking competition is perfect for the long afternoons of summer. They are ďŹ lled with great food, people sharing their specialties and are usually for a good cause. Featured ingredients such as strawberries, tomatoes or hot sauce might pop to mindâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but hot dogs? Yep, hot dogs are the key ingredient at a local competition, and they will be grilled, sautĂŠed, maybe even mashed and served with gravy or paired with ďŹ ne vanilla-bean ice cream or wine. Frankly, the possibilities for weenies are endless.

Last year alone, meat-hungry Americans ate 20 million hot dogs, so for hot dog loverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Aug. 9 is a big day. The third annual Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nai Israel Jewish Center Kosher Cook-Off Competition looks outside the bun and serves up hot dogs in unexpected ways. Hot dogs, a staple of barbecue and kosher cuisine, â&#x20AC;&#x153;could not be a more fun main ingredientâ&#x20AC;? says Glenn Laurie of the Jewish Center.

The last competition, in 2007, was such a success that the dogs have returned. Teams of center members have an hour and a half to make an appetizer, entrĂŠe and dessert all featuring the key ingredient while attendees sit back enjoy the show that will be emceed by Gina Romeo of Giacomoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ristorante and Pizzeria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have ďŹ rm buns in order to come to this cook-off,â&#x20AC;? Laurie jokes. These arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s franks and beans or weenies in mac and cheese recipes, but rather the competition entries have upped the hotdog-fanciness ante. The 2007 judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice included kosher Sonoma sun-dried tomato marmalade with grilled kosher hot dogs and mango sorbet surprise. Surprise=hotdogs? Yes! And then there are peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice winners, hot dog paella, kosher hot dog unstuffed cabbage and Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kosher hot dog apple pie. Whodda thunk?

Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, next to Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar, has long been a favorite of diners savvy enough to know that, despite the unlikely setting of a dark room connected to an even darker pub, there was some good food to be had here. Yes, it was a little complicated. The Pat in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barâ&#x20AC;? was actually owner Richard Hines, who served casual breakfast and lunch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chef Patrickâ&#x20AC;? is Patrick Wong, who was leasing space from Hines to offer more upscale dinner service, and he was only open several nights a week, with often random hours. At the new Chef Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Wong continues with his familiar classic recipes, but in a brighter, quieter, more sophisticated setting. White tablecloths are a nice touch, though the prices remain reasonable (the menu changes frequently, yet a recent visit found the highest price dish to be ďŹ let mignon in Sonoma Merlot sauce with mashed potatoes and vegetables for $25.95). Most everything else stays comfortably below $13.95 and $21.95 for entrĂŠes. While Wong is Vietnamese, his background as a San Francisco caterer and hotel chef trained him in French and Italian cooking. And so he sends out delicious but approachable dishes like porc champignon, poulet de onion conďŹ t, prawn risotto and herb-crusted lamb chops in mint Bordelaise sauce. Seared ahi is expertly rare, teamed with artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes, and drunken prawns are particularly good, sautĂŠed and ďŹ nished with cognac. Things get much more relaxed at lunch, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a choice of a salad or sandwich, such as ďŹ eld greens in Champagne vinaigrette, roast beef with garlic remoulade on French bread, or prosciutto and dry salame with brie on French bread. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been craving a pastrami sandwich, this oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winner, layered with basil remoulade and tomato on rye (though be sure to request Swiss instead of the American cheese it comes with). The hours still seem to be being worked outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a week ago Chef Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was open only for weekends, but this week, the hostess promised service for lunch and dinner every day except Wednesday. Your best bet? Call ahead. Chef Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. 16337 Main St., Guerneville. 707.869.9161.

C8=10A= E8=4H0A3B es. Like the similarly candid Ernieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tin Bar (Swirl â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Spit, Dec. 6, 2006), Tin Barn is situated in a metal shed. This shed is some several magnitudes larger, the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sign plate hidden away in the midst of still more sheds, as remote and nowheresville as it gets in Sonoma. North of the Sonoma Skypark, east of the water treatment plant, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picturesque, for sureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking motion picture: the deserted industrial park, the sunbaked asphalt canyons and long, looming warehouses that go on for a half a day could easily backdrop a rendezvous scene involving fast cars and contraband freight. I only lacked for teardrop sunglasses.

Y

The thing about warehouse wineries is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really all about the wine, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no line. Inside Tin Barn, the theme is continued with a nicely styled, bright tasting area accented with corrugated metal rooďŹ ng. In the cellar, I found the manager, cradling a small dog, leading an informative tour, but mindful that there was naught but tanks and barrels to see in the tidy warehouse, I ducked into the tasting room to beat the crowd. Wine club members were already bellying up to the bar, and soon the tour group spilled in. The surprisingly busy little place ďŹ lled with an ensemble cast, including detached young urbanites and friendly older win- club types, but the plucky staff managed to keep my glass in the rotation. The crisp and pleasant 2006 Sauvignon Blanc ($18) had a narrow pine resin aroma with a shade of tropical and Jolly Rancher with just a sliver of oakâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;boding well for the just-released 2008. The 2007 Pinot Noir ($34) was seasoned with coriander and allspice, and fresh raspberry with dried herbs, jelly and plum skin on a silky road to a dry ďŹ nish. Odd hints of horse tail and violets introduced the 2004 Sonoma Coast Syrah Coryelle Fields Vineyard ($28), followed by jelly Danish, dark toasted oak and gym locker; in short, a ďŹ ne Syrah with varietal interest. The clean, conserve aroma and high notes of red fruit and grape jelly make the 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Blend ($34) a simply enjoyable claret style quaff. Alert: Eighth Street wineries hosts its annual open house on Saturday, Aug. 8. Tin Barn and neighboring warehouse dwellers Parmelee-Hill, Enkidu, Anaba, Three Sticks, MacRostie, Ty Caton and Talisman will roll up their doors for library tastings, new releases and barrel tastings. While some of these boutique operations have off-site tasting, others are not otherwise open to the public. Admission includes logo wine glass; BYO tear drop sunglasses. Tickets ($20) available at MacRostie Winery, 21481 Eighth St. E., Sonoma. 707.996.4480. Tin Barn Vineyards, 21692 Eighth St. E., Ste. 340, Sonoma. Open Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, 11am to 4pm. Tasting fee $6. 707.938.5430.

HP_BcPab Midsummer musings in praise of little dogs By Kelly Luker

F

eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard it all before: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is that a dog or a rat?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, a punt dog!â&#x20AC;? Or the highly original, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you get a real dog?â&#x20AC;? As far as membership in that sector of society still safe to belittle, we who own smaller canine breeds rate right up there with rednecks and the obese. Stereotypes abound, both for us and our pint-sized pals. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re airhead heiresses with a Shih Tzu parked in our Gucci bag or post-menopausal women whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve restocked their empty nests with furry surrogates.

And oh, how they mock those poor dogs not quite tall enough to drink out of the toilet bowl. If a movie needs a punchline, a throwaway visual joke, bring in the Chihuahua. Or a bow-bedecked papillon. Bantamweights really do need their own Al Sharpton to do a little barking on their behalf. Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to dispel a few of those tired old myths about us and our â&#x20AC;&#x153;kids,â&#x20AC;? as so many of you are convinced we call them. Myth #1: Little dogs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count as dogs. Oh yeah? Tell it to the American Kennel Club, which yearly ranks the most popular breeds. Almost half of the 10 top breeds to cycle up and down AKCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list for the past several years would

barely clear your average Labradorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chubby thighs. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking Yorkies, dachshunds, poodles, Shih Tzus, miniature schnauzers, Pomeranians and Chihuahuas. As long as a burgeoning population of humans continue to cram themselves into ever-smaller living conditions, the little ones will eventually loom over the bigger lunks. Myth #2: Tiny dogs bark more than big dogs. Not really; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just more grating. Those tiny vocal chords make for a higher pitched yap. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to communicate the same thing as German shepherds or rottweilers. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re anxious, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lonely or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really appreciate it if you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all up in their grill.

One sounds like a very large man asking if you want a piece of him; the other comes across like a kindergarten bully. Myth #3: They snap and bite more often than the larger dogs. Big dogs that bite will hurt people. They quickly change their behavior or end up on death row at the local shelter. Tiny jaws, however, rarely do much more than nip and annoy. Some of their less responsible guardians write it off as a small downside of a small dog. It’s true that your typical Chihuahua will not joyfully run up to slobber all over you like its bigger relatives. You, too, would be a little nervous if everyone you met were as tall as a six-story building. Additionally, most canines were originally bred to do some type of chore: bring down lions, retrieve birds, round up sheep. A Chihuahua was bred specifically for one job: companionship. That would be companion—singular, not plural. Myth #4: The smaller they are, the harder they are to housebreak. Yes, but it has nothing to do with bladder or brain size. Like their stealth-pooping, they just get away with it easier. Discovering where a Great Dane dropped its load is a lot easier than spotting droppings smaller than your pinkie. Trainers and dog behaviorists agree that the best way to housebreak a puppy is to catch it in the act and quickly carry it outdoors while pouring on the praise. A youthful St. Bernard tends to make itself known as it prepares to squat, while a toy breed in its puppyhood can easily disappear behind a moderate-size potted plant. Also, it’s easier to forgive a creature that leaves Jimmy Dean breakfast links versus a steaming mini-Everest. Myth #5: Only women and gay men leash themselves to dogs with balls the size of kibble. As a middle-aged broad who tools around town with a car load of tiny yappy dogs, I’ll be the first to admit that I fit quite snugly into this general preconception. So I would like to bestow the Golden Milk-Bone Award to Mickey Rourke, who attended this year’s Academy Awards with a picture of his recently deceased Chihuahua, Loki, worn as a pendant around his neck. Showing further class, Rourke thanked all his Chihuahuas, past and present, when he won the Golden Globes for his turn in The Wrestler. He spoke for the legions of big, hunky men who don’t think twice about a toy breed or two wrapped in their musclebound biceps. It takes a real man to love a lapdog. A confident man, a fella comfortable with his sexuality. When hip-hop culture starts to

venerate Pomeranians instead of pitbulls in videos, on T-shirts and in lyrics, we may grudgingly trust there actually is something inside of those baggy crotches they so love to grab. Myth #6: We like our little dogs better than humans. Oh, right. That one’s true. Myth #7: We think they’re children. Finally, it’s time to address this misguided assumption that our tiny charges take the place of children we wished we had. There are plenty who prefer a small creature that takes up to four years to housebreak. Many more have committed themselves to young companions who scream “I want,” f ling food or collapse in a sobbing heap each time they are taken for a walk in public. When our Pekingese reaches the human equivalent of 14 years old, we do not worry about drug abuse, gang affiliations, morbid adolescent poetry or wonder what they do on the internet hour after hour. Our “kids” set us back about $80–$100 for a six-week school session, not 15 grand a semester. We do not fear they’ll lose their job and move back in with us. They never left. We don’t begrudge you and your muscle dogs (unless you’re Michael Vick, of course). We’d just like a little respect. Think of us as dedicated environmentalists, just trying to leave an ever smaller paw print on the planet.

BWPZTH^da6a^^eTCWP]V Local dance company K Plus and the Electrolytes have arrivedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you know, almost By Cassandra Landry

?

erforming with a local dance company can be like volunteering at the food shelter, performing in a third-grade recital and busking on some big city street, all at the same time. The pay is nonexistent, the only people in the audience seem to be Mom and Dad, and venues are hard to come by. At the end of the day, there better be a good, strong passion behind the dance. New dance company K Plus and the Electrolytes have the passion part down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole intention with it from the very beginning has been to have it be a nonprofit organization,â&#x20AC;? group founder Kaci Tipton says as she settles into a wrought-iron chair outside Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market in Sebastopol. She has a small build but radiates a punch of energy; half of her face is hidden behind pink sunglasses and the other half is taken up by a huge smile. She rifles through her fuzzy, stuffedanimal purse and triumphantly comes up with a K Plus and the Electrolytes button. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The company is kind of a product to generate awareness and money to bring food and medicine to people around the world and in our community,â&#x20AC;? she continues. The group has been making the

performance rounds this summer with appearances at the Harmony Festival and activism benefits all over the county. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Audiences are giving us great feedback,â&#x20AC;? Tipton says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have so much fun, and we just bring this buzz of energy wherever we go.â&#x20AC;? The Electrolytes evoke a feeling not unlike one might have felt while watching the San Francisco Mime Troupe during the 1960s: artistic talent wrapped up in a circuslike package with an activist f lair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely fit in our own kind of box in the dance community,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more like a circus. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just dancing for the sake of dancing. We want to travel around the world and perform at orphanages and just spread joy.â&#x20AC;? The dance scene in the North Bay, much like other small-town artistic centers, is constantly subject to abandonment; many talented dancers often pack up and move to L.A. or San Francisco where companies are more successful and there are monthly checks. Tipton agrees that by staying in the area, the Electrolytes are trying to do their part for the arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of taking it slow for now. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really blow up huge quite yet,â&#x20AC;? she adds, mentioning her busy schedule as a reason for

the restraint. Tipton is a 33-year-old nursing student at the Santa Rosa Junior College with her own healing practice, Full Spectrum Healing Arts. Though she is immersed in Western medicine, she says her interests lie more toward the Eastern practice of Ayurveda. Not unsurprisingly, this fusion of West meets East can also be found in her dance; she has spent time with a Bollywood dance troupe and several contemporary companies over the years. After a semester without dance, she decided to take matters into her own hands rather than seek out a company that would fit her schedule. She passed around f lyers, and the first rehearsal for K Plus and the Electrolytes was held in September of 2008. When asked to define the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style, Tipton grins and says that she has been considering how to explain it for a while. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the question,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so hard to do. We need to come up with a new word for it. We have elements of every dance Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done in my life.â&#x20AC;? Since Tipton has danced for about 25 years, this includes a host of inf luences: Bollywood to jazz, contemporary modern to hip-hop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to describe it as risquĂŠ hilarity. That

doesn’t scream dance troupe, but it’s a good way to describe what we do,” she says. “We’re very burlesque, and we do onstage costume changes and that kind of thing. You name it, we’ve probably got in there somewhere.” Company member Bryce Williams has danced alongside Tipton on and off since their involvement with local dance troupe Grassroots Movement in 2005. Although the group has since dispersed, Williams joined forces with Tipton with the creation of the Electrolytes. “Dancing in the troop has been a total blast,” Williams says. “Kaci choreographs from the heart and soul of a funky jazzy rainbow with tap shoes and Adidas track shorts. The troupe is nothing short of a wild collection of personalities.” Funky jazzy rainbow, indeed. The current cast of members stands at about 11, but f luctuates, explains Tipton, and throughout the changing numbers she says a group of six dancers have formed the core of the group, including three men who play horns when they’re not playing horndogs. “We have all been great friends and artists together for a long time,” Williams says. “It shows in the pieces we have created.” One feature that makes the Electrolytes so intriguing is the difference in skill and technical level among company members. Traditionally, a dance company strives for uniform talent, making the pieces more consistent, but Tipton says the lack of conformity is part of what makes the troupe unique. Area dancer Allison Frenzel says, “My experience with the Electrolytes has been quite different than my experience working in other performance-based dance companies. The dancers learn at their own pace, and there is no competitive energy or judgment. That’s a refreshing mentality in the dance world.” After the initial round of performances last fall and this spring, audience members contacted Tipton vying for an opportunity to perform with the group. “It started off as being very inclusive,” Tipton admits, “but now that we’re getting better, I’m not really letting people in who don’t have any dance experience, because we’re evolving so quickly.” She says the members are getting stronger with each rehearsal and becoming a more cohesive unit. But where, deep in the mind of the choreographer with the heart and soul of a funky jazzy rainbow, did the group’s unique moniker come from? “Electrolytes are keys to life. We would die without them,” Tipton says. “K plus is an electrolyte—it’s potassium in its normal state, and it’s one of the most important electrolytes we need. So it’s not like I’m different from the electrolytes; I am an electrolyte.” She adds with a giggle, “The dancers are coming up with their own electrolyte names now, it’s cute. Chloe-ride, PhosphoRayRay, Foxy Dioxy—rehearsals are a blast. We laugh a lot, and we dance our asses off.”

C7A403B Political satirist Will Durst ties it all together.

;^]V 5^a\5d] Standup guy Will Durst moves to sit-down humor

By David Templeton

fter nearly a decade of making fun of George W. Bush, political satirist Will Durst has had to go cold turkey from the big Dubya. This hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been easy, since the previous president was a goldmine of inspiration for a comic known for his politically astute, tonguetangling debunkings of clueless buffoonery in high office. In the process of de-Bushing his routine, Durst has also been shifting the way the act is structured, dabbling in new forms of performance that are bringing him a new army of fansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and critical praise. After a successful run of his one-man show The AllAmerican Sport of Bipartisan Bashingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with a stint off-Broadway and a bestselling book of the same nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Durst is now ready with a new one-man show, The Lieutenant Governor from the State of Confusion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different from my standup act in that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longer,â&#x20AC;? laughs Durst, reached by phone as he travels from one South Bay comedy gig to another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still mostly jokes, of course. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be any cathartic release at the end. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about, you know, my horrible childhood or manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inhumanity to man or anything like that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly political jokes held together with a carefully constructed thread.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad thing, telling jokes. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good thread. The thread is trying to find humor in semihumorless times. I discover that uncertain times call for uncertain leaders. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thread of my show.â&#x20AC;? Durst will be testing out his new solo piece for the first time in front of an audience at a special event this weekend in Petaluma. As part of Cinnabar Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent emergence as the spot of choice for comedians to hone new material before taking it on the road, Durst is launching the 70-minute Lieutenant Governor from the State of Confusion this Friday and Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cinnabarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great theater,â&#x20AC;? says Durst, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a great place to test out new material. Who knew Petaluma would become the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incubator for new comedy?â&#x20AC;? The two Petaluma performances will be Durstâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm-up, before taking the show to Washington, D.C., for a month of performances in our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capitol. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love D.C.â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a company town, and I speak the company business. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping to take the city by storm. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to end up with a permanent theater space, maybe one in D.C. and one in San Francisco, where I could just run this show for monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or years. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always new material I can work into the show. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve constructed it so I can drop in bits and pieces from whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been happening in the news that day. This show will be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;as topical as the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlines,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; as they say.â&#x20AC;? Now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a taste of the oneman-show format, Durst is growing quite comfortable with the whole structure of the comedic solo performance piece. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-form standup, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I think of this format,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can take my time. It means I can develop things further, do more character work. And it also means I get to perform in theaters instead of clubs. In theaters, people come to listen to words. The difference between this format and the standup format is that, while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still telling jokes, now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m telling jokes to smart people sitting in comfy chairs instead of drunks sitting on bar stools.â&#x20AC;? Durst promises that audiences will still get plenty of the kind of barbed one-liners and laser-sharp insight heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become famous for, tackling all the newsworthy individuals and topics that pop up in the news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of Congress stuff, some healthcare stuff and a lot of looking forward to 2012. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even some Sarah Palin stuff. The good thing about Sarah Palin is she refuses to go away.â&#x20AC;? There may even be a few jokes about the new president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obama is tough,â&#x20AC;? Durst admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to make jokes about Obama. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to even see Obama, because the halo around him is still too bright. But by saying that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make fun of him, I end up making fun of him. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, like, my hook. It works very, very well.â&#x20AC;? Will Durstâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Lieutenant Governor from the State of Confusionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, July 31â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 1 at Cinnabar Theater, 3333 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$30. 707.763.8920.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In the Loopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shows Downing Street and the White House going to war By Richard von Busack

H

ou canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make this stuff up, and writer-director Armando Iannucci didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to. In the Loop has Iannucci, a well-known figure in British television comedy, doing a scathing sort-of version of the dawn of the Iraq War. Its subject is the forecasting of a war of choice in an unnamed country, based on info from a single dubious informant. A high-ranking member of the U.S. presidential staff rushes to war and is opposed behind the scenes by a celebrated army officer. James Gandolfiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lt. Gen. George Miller is a slobbier, more wrathful version of Colin Powell, profane but nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fool. Mimi Kennedy plays Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best ally, Karen Clarke, a career State Department diplomat with dandruffy hair and teeth that seem to be disintegrating during the middle of a crisis. Gandolfini and Clarke are In the Loopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moral center, the only two people who operate with good will. We want to follow them through this sonata of collapsing spines and raving, swearing political careerists, but Iannucci often just wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let us. Chief among the abusers is the White House warmonger, the Rumsfeldian Linton Barwick (David Rasche), a pious

creep who keeps a live hand grenade on his desk. Clarke and the state department try to find out his hidden scheme. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, the British PMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press secretary Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) keeps up both fact-finding and fulmination. Tucker is a Scots telephone screamer whose favorite task is calling in underlings to his office for â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bollockingâ&#x20AC;? (a disciplinary session). Tuckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two favorite bollockees: Simon Foster (Tom Hollander), a minor MP from an inglorious district, and Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tousled, Ron Weasleyâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like aide Toby Wright (Chris Addison). Foster is meant to be a chair-warmer at the U.S./ U.K. diplomatic meetings. Unfortunately, the MP grabs unwarranted attention by blurting something out to the press. His words either state or do not state the Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to partner with America in its upcoming war. Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s later attempt to restate his misstatement is a fine macramĂŠ of words, far too tangled to reknit here. The lines have something to do with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;mountain of conf lictâ&#x20AC;? that cannot be anticipated by the speeding aircraft of destiny, a mountain that cannot be predicted, only climbed. Certainly, this diplomatic obfuscation is inspired by Rumsfeldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;known unknownsâ&#x20AC;? speech, but it is even more slippery. Thus, these hangdog wooly Brits brave D.C., a den of arrogance and suckling policy wonks: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should still be at school, having your head shoved down a toilet,â&#x20AC;? Tucker snarls at one kid. In the Loop is a relentless festival of wit. When Foster has to go back to the boondocks to meet with his constituentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;from the White House to the shite houseâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plagued by a stubborn yokel (Steve Coogan, Iannucciâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner from his days with the Alan Partridge show). An instructive lesson in the difference between the parliamentary system and whatever it is exactly that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got here in the way of government, this film assures us that international affairs can be hijacked by a man obsessed with the broken retaining wall of his council estate. Coogan, wearing a wool hat and an air of blocked grievance, is a delight. So is Gandolfini, with his croaking, supersized wrath. His ogreish grimace, as he watches the vile Tucker try to out-macho him, is a serious threat in a film full of empty ones. At first it seems that Gandolfini has never been so good in a movie, and then it becomes clear that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because In the Loop is so very much like TV. It all must have looked great on paper. The scathing verbiage is a gusher. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that the talk is too fast to comprehend (though some will find it so), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that it might have been better focused through the smaller screen. A movie needs so much more than cold wit. In the Loop is a case of smartness outsmarting itself. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duration keeps you helplessly laughing, but it sends you home with a cold, dismal feeling.

The End of Love Madeleine Peyrouxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1996 debut album, Dreamland, arrived at a curious time in New York, when Grand Royal magazine and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion ruled the scene. A quiet, whimsical collection of standards including covers of Patsy Cline and Edith Piaf, Peyrouxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration with downtown jazz luminaries James Carter, Cyrus Chestnut and Marc Ribot failed to make a massive splash, instead hovering in cult status for eight long years. Fast-forward to the postâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Norah Jones New York landscape, and Peyroux has all of a sudden received gales of attention, especially for her album of enduring classics Careless Love. She brings her voice, hued strongly with Billie Holiday, and her astonishingly demure stage presence to town on Wednesday, Aug. 5, to the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$70. 707.546.3600.

Ooo Baby Baby Where would we be without Smokey Robinson? Can any one of us imagine life without â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tracks of My Tears,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Second That Emotionâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Really Got a Hold on Me?â&#x20AC;? Just how much more lousy would music be without â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since I Lost My Babyâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shop Aroundâ&#x20AC;?? Or even â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cruisinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being with Youâ&#x20AC;?? I could fill this entire page with Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributions to American music. The fantastic thing is that unlike so many other living legends, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in possession of a great voice. A consummate performer who tours with a full orchestra and conductor, Robinson deserves every accolade placed at his feet. If you can only afford to attend one concert this summer, make it Smokey Robinson on Saturday, Aug. 1, at Robert Mondavi Winery. 7801 St. Helena Hwy., Oakville. 7pm. $95â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$125. 707.226.7372.

San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s psychedelic surf-guitar group the Mermen have been awfully quiet since the 2000 release of The Amazing California Health and Happiness Road Show, although as far as notes to end on, that recording is in the upper range of

Mississippi Boy If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the slow but sure power of the independent music industry, Paul Thornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record label, Perpetual Obscurity, might actually be fitting. But as it is, Thorn, a Tupelo, Miss. native, is far too talented to be contained by the usual languish. Since hanging up his gloves as a professional boxer, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been noticed by everyone from Mark Knopf ler to Bonnie Raitt (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told her that the next time she went out on tour,â&#x20AC;? Thorn joked recently, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick me as her opening act, she and her dog would surely burn in hellâ&#x20AC;?). A born storyteller with an endearingly halted drawl, Thorn is a pleasure to watch live; the setting is perfect for his tales of the dry South when he appears at a barbecue on the lawn on Sunday, Aug. 2, at Rancho Nicasio. Town Square, Nicasio. 4pm. $22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 415.662.2219.

Kiss Your Television As a founding member of the Reduced Shakespeare Co. and co-creating force behind the smash stage hit The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Jess Winfield knows a thing or two about brevity in the face of a short attention span. So it comes as no surprise that he appears in Santa Rosa with a lecture entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why TV Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Evil: What Writers Can Learn from Television, Film and Theater.â&#x20AC;? The 22-minute sitcom in which life catastrophes are presented, navigated and overcome will no doubt be covered, but with the virtual demise of the sitcom, the real question is what writers could possibly hope to learn from the glut of so-called unscripted reality competition shows that clog the cable lines. Find out when Winfield appears with the Redwood Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Club on Sunday, Aug. 2, at Copperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books. 2316 Montgomery Drive, Santa Rosa. 3pm. $5. 707.578.8938.

Kaleidoscopic Freakout

incredible. Drenched in atmosphere, melody and tone, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everything that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to mind when one thinks of â&#x20AC;&#x153;psychedelic surf guitarâ&#x20AC;? (it sounds almost nothing like Man or Astro-Man? or Los Straitjackets). In the recordingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wake, the Mermen have been riding on a wave of live shows, many of which are recorded and archived by the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rabid fan base and posted online. But who wants to listen to Quicktime mp3s when the Mermen themselves are playing this weekend? To wit: on Friday, July 31, at the Mystic Theatre. 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 9pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.765.2121.

Metal gods rock out for historical preservation he Marin History Museum offers visitors a tremendous glimpse into the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s venerable past with an expansive collection of artifacts and ephemera, with everything from sepia-toned vintage postcards advertising the rail line of Muir Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; glory days to galvanized tin milk buckets from the bygone dairy farms of San Anselmo, and exhibits on such notable natives as arctic explorer Louise Boyd, New Deal photographer Dorothea Lange, notorious lumber baron Robert Dollar and many more. Soon to be added to this august list of Mariners: James, Kirk, Robert and Lars. Or, more simply, Metallica. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. Metallica. The thrash-metal, multiplatinum, group-therapyseeking, Napster-busting, leather-pants-wearing soon-tobe Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and lords of rock will be performing in September as part of a fundraiser for the Marin History Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marin Rocks.â&#x20AC;? The exhibit will celebrate the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich tradition of hosting such music icons as the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Big Brother, Jefferson Airplane and, yes, those bad-boy shredders themselves. Why are these heavy-metal, some-kind-of-monster men playing a beneďŹ t show for a county history museum? Well, besides being hard-as-nails-aggressivethrash mavens, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also dads. According to museum chief curator Dawn Laurant, band members and Marin residents Lars Ulrich and James HetďŹ eld are actively engaged local citizens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are very rooted in the community and into raising children here,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They liked the idea of combining history with workshops and classes to connect generations and keep the Marin community alive.â&#x20AC;? In developing this exhibit, the museum developed ties with many musicians, but Metallica was the ďŹ rst to clear a spot on their world tour for the beneďŹ t concert. The band has its own rich history in Marin. They recorded their 1997 Reload at the Plant Studio in Sausalito and have their own â&#x20AC;&#x153;HQâ&#x20AC;? recording studio in San Rafael. Since the announcement of the upcoming show went up on Metallicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, the museum has popped onto the radar of thousands of metal-heads worldwide, even receiving enthusiastic phone calls from Germany. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to say how thrilled we are that Metallica is giving us this beneďŹ t. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this without the support of local musicians,â&#x20AC;? Laurant says. A bit of head-banger herself, she rather uncontrollably adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yay! I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for the concert!â&#x20AC;? Hold onto your sepia-toned vintage postcards, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be wild when tickets go on sale Aug. 1; they are going to go faster than Lars can decimate his 15-piece kit. The masters of metal will turn the amps up to 11 on Sept. 11 at the Marin Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Veterans Memorial Auditorium. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. Ticket prices start at $100. 415.499.6800. Daniel Hirsch

5[^^ScWT BcaTTcb The Renegade Art Revival a Critical Mass for horns

By Gabe Meline

0

aron Milligan-Green is the dreadlocked drummer for a joyous band of troubadours called the Jungle Love Orchestra, who either create culture and community or foist their noise on an unsuspecting publicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;depending whom you ask. The average person on the street seems to have no complaint with Milligan-Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ramshackle sounds, but to the Santa Rosa Police Department, music performed on the street is a citable offense. For some time, he was asked to move along by police. Then he actually got a ticket simply for playing music with a friend in Railroad Squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Depot Park. So heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a plan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a plan that relies on the participation of as many people as possible who believe that street music should be free and legal and not confined to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;free speechâ&#x20AC;? zone. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling it the Renegade Art Revival, and the concept is simple: flood the streets with so many honking and squawking and singing and tweeting and banging and marching and twanging musicians and dancers and cyclists and costumed marchers and artists that the police couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possibly issue tickets to everyone. Think of it as a Critical Mass for horns. Guerrilla concerts downtownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on street

Take a scenic drive for a unique dining experience

Dinner and a Show corners, in the post office, on rooftops, in tunnels, at Courthouse Squareâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have long been a fixture of underground music in Santa Rosa. The Renegade Art Revival aims to bring that energy aboveground and in plain sight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two things I hope to accomplish,â&#x20AC;? Milligan-Green declares between bites of a BLT at the Third Street Aleworks, where his seven-piece street band often plays in a nearby courtyard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One is really just to show the general public at large that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with having this kind of spontaneous activity, this free expression going on in our public places. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a community vs. commerce mentality, which we have currently. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recognize the fact that community complements commerce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other reason,â&#x20AC;? he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is that those laws have been in place for so long now, people are genuinely intimidated to come out and do any of this in public. Not because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scared of the punitive measures that they might faceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so self-conscious because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anybody else out there doing it.â&#x20AC;? The police departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just upholding the letter of the law, an assertion that falsely assumes that laws are not elastic. When Milligan-Green and his seven-piece band break into a version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Haitian Fight Songâ&#x20AC;? on the downtown streets, the police could easily let it slide. Instead, they issue a ticket, citing the law. Milligan-Green has the ordinance memorizedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Section 17-16.090, the one titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Drums and Other Instrumentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and has collected 2,500 signatures to overturn it, even digging up the city council meeting minutes from 1972 to discover how it was voted in. He connected with Vicky Kumpfer, the former director of the Arts District in Santa Rosa, who held a series of meetings with downtown leaders. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful that the ordinance will eventually be overturned, but one of the initial ideas in those meetingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; to have an â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK to playâ&#x20AC;? area downtownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; rubbed him and others the wrong way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea of having to post up a sign that says youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a designated city of Santa Rosa street performerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kinda like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wait a second. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an employee. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to rep you guys,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like, by doing that, the city essentially is taking all the credit for it. Like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re granting you permission to be out here playing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not your own will; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowing you to be out here, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna have this sign showing everyone that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowing you to be out here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The Renegade Art Revival, MilliganGreen says, is in defiance of that flawed concept: that a citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music and expression should be confined to a designated zone in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to set an example,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a protest, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an angry, riotous protest. No, this is a celebration. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming out and celebrating creativity and celebrating community. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the idea. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the attitude we want to cultivate.â&#x20AC;? The Renegade Art Revival makes a raucous noise on Saturday, Aug. 8, at Railroad Square in Santa Rosa at noon. Meet with instruments, bikes, costumes, toys and other assorted props; participants will walk toward Courthouse Square and disperse around the streets throughout the afternoon.

AN EVENING WITH

DA10=06A>

THE MERMEN

Former â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bohemianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; columnist raises a book ack when she started her weekly â&#x20AC;&#x153;Revâ&#x20AC;? column about alternative transportation for us in 2003, Novella Carpenter had already planted a garden in the abandoned vacant lot adjacent to her rented West Oakland apartment. Some Rev readers might remember that she and her boyfriend, Bill, were early devotees of biofuels, but what Novella never mentioned in Rev was her odyssey into urban farming under the lee of the thundering I-980. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as well that she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give all that good stuff away in a mere column, creating Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer (Penguin; $25.95) instead. Given a prestigious starred review from Publishers Weekly, Farm City details Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventures learning how to farm on the hard-scrabble pack of a filthy inner city lot. She appears Aug. 2 at Readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Books. Starting with veggies, Carpenter gradually grew to raise chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits, goats and even pigs in her backyard. Talking by phone from Los Angeles while on tour, she says that her landlord frankly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written a bestselling book about her experience farming his land. When Bill accompanies her on tour, the two ask their downstairs neighbors to take care of the animals and plants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of them is from Cuba,â&#x20AC;? she explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and so milking the goats is totally normal. As a young man, he told me that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trained to do guerrilla warfare and gardening. Milking in the morning and target practice later in the day.â&#x20AC;? While critics are unanimous in their praise of Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wit and writing, many have remarked upon her tendency to name, pet, groom and love up her animals before butchering them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never be apologetic for that,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Naming my animals and killing them is more of a philosophical thing than anything else. I think that people are hypocrites if they eat meat but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t acknowledge where it came from; do they live in some cloudlike static childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be righteous, but if people are offended, let â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em be.â&#x20AC;? Teaming up with City Slicker Farms founder Willow Rosenthal, Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next book is already at the publisher. Tentatively titled The Essential Urban Farmer, this follow-up will be a how-to guide for those who would like to follow in Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soiled footsteps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the book that I wish that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had,â&#x20AC;? she says. Carpenter is not immune to the irony of her success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The timing is impeccable,â&#x20AC;? she says with a rueful chuckle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recession really causes people to question what they spend their money on. Our food system is broken, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always hoping that someone will fix it. But there is no one. After a while, you have to realize that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to fix things. And after a while,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really empowering.â&#x20AC;? Novella Carpenter reads from and discusses Farm City at Readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Books on Sunday, Aug. 2, at 4pm. 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. Free. 707.939.1779. Gretchen Giles

Activist Cindy Sheehan has her life goal firm and her answer, finally indy Sheehan, a 2005 Nobel Peace Prize nominee and recipient of dozens of peace awards worldwide, will visit Occidental on July 31 to greet the public on the street and attend an informal reception at Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cafe, followed by an interview on Occidentalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radio station, KOWS 107.3-FM. Sheehan is coming to Occidental, she said during a recent telephone interview, to raise money for community radio, of which she is a supporter, and also to collect book orders to help finance her Myth America Tour. In her latest book, Myth America: 10 Greatest Myths of the Robber Class and the Case for Revolution, she calls for people to peacefully cast off oppression and demand peace, justice and economic equality. Sheehan, whose life as she knew it ended on April 4, 2004, upon the death of her 24-year-old son in Iraq, grabbed headlines in 2005 by helping found Gold Star Families for Peace, an anti-war organization providing support for families of soldiers killed in Iraq. Her encampment near George W. Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranch in Crawford, Texas, drew hundreds of people, including Congress members, activists and entertainment celebrities. There, Sheehan demanded an audience with Bush and an explanation of the reasons why her son and thousands of others were sent to Iraq to die. Five years later, she confronts the question and sees the answer as unfortunately simple: â&#x20AC;&#x153;For empire and corporate profit.â&#x20AC;? Sheehan admits that she is â&#x20AC;&#x153;very pessimisticâ&#x20AC;? about the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because the peace movement has stood down since the Obama administration. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not moral or ethical to stand down because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Democrat in office.â&#x20AC;? Sheehan has been arrested a dozen times at demonstrations. In 2007, she traveled to Cuba, calling for closure of U.S. military bases in Guantanamo. A year later she ran for the House of Representatives in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eighth Congressional District, finishing second to Nancy Pelosi in a field of seven with 16 percent of the vote. Not being a representative hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put Sheehan off course. She has her lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. Of her dedication to activism, she now simply says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my occupation, the thing I do.â&#x20AC;? Cindy Sheehan appears at the Occidental farmers market on Friday, July 31, at 4pm. A reception at Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cafe follows at 6pm. Downtown Occidental, Bohemian Highway. Free.

;8E4F>A:

Have artists Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth got a space for you? ationally regarded young artists Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth run a funky artists space in San Francisco dubbed Compound 21 that has enough hipster cred to have warranted breathless magazine articles detailing how they store their bikes and share their kitchen. Now Sonoma County gets a bit of that cred without much of the breathless wonder as Diaz Hope and Roth prepare to open their new art spaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;named Compound Double Down because they refinanced the city spot to buy it out in the hills between Graton and Occidentalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to an artmaking public. Diaz Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work comments on the woozy Prozacpositive bent of modern society through photographs and installations that heavily rely on actual pill capsules to deliver information (as with Night, above). Among her projects, Roth carves stunningly expensive representations of dog skulls, replete with Swarovski crystals, to reflect our cultural obsession with that which is small, furry and neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to college. Together they have some six live/work spaces at the Double Down as well as three straightforward studios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for people who are actively making their art a good majority of the time,â&#x20AC;? Diaz Hope says by phone while in town picking up building materials. (Cell reception is not necessarily included.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of studios are already rented,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a composer in one, a sculptor in another; we have three studios available and they go between $400 and $750; the live/work, $850 to $1200.â&#x20AC;? While Diaz Hope and Roth curate the artists who share their SF compound, their goal in the North Bay is to help working artists growâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, the goal would be to have a residency of one to three months out here, giving people a sort of intense body-ofwork time before a show or while working on a concept,â&#x20AC;? Diaz Hope says. For information, contact Diaz Hope at andy@andydiazhope.com.

For six decades more than $76 million from the Frank P. Doyle Trust provided scholarships to over 120,000 Santa Rosa Junior College students. With the temporary loss of the Doyle Scholarship in 2008, many students who deserve awards will not receive scholarships. Until the Doyle Scholarship is restored, the help of the Sonoma County community is badly needed. Join with members of our community to create SRJC scholarships.

Raven launches Hollywood and Wine concept s theater ticket prices have risen, so has the sumptuousness of the movie-house experience. But perhaps no in-the-dark innovations can compare to what the Raven Theater in Healdsburg is planning. Remodeling two small screening auditoriums, Raven owner Dan Tocchini is revamping part of his house to welcome Hollywood and Wine, a new concept in drinking in films that greatly involves, well, drinking. Partnering up with area vintners, Tocchini has installed real leather recliners with arm rests that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t merely hold a cup; they are indented to keep glass wine tumblers in check and have room for small plates which might hold the house-made panini, fresh flat breads and various crostini that moviegoers may sip and nosh their way through during first-run features. Each month will highlight a different vintner in the house, pairing his or her wines with the Hollywood and Wine cafe, a small kitchen housed in the theater itself. One auditorium will seat 120; the other, 60. Ticket prices for films screened in these special rooms will be $12.75, just three dollars above the regular price, but only those proving to be 21 or older will be admitted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are only seven of these in California,â&#x20AC;? Tocchini says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and most of them are beer pubs. We thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have a theater in wine country, why not try it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Tocchini, who has owned the Raven for some five years and also owns the Airport, Roxy and Third Street cinemas, has visited similar film-and-wine houses in Australia and Los Angeles, and plans to allow patrons not only to purchase their tickets online, but choose their seats there as well, hoping to show a seating chart on his website by the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. Hollywood and Wine opens on Aug. 7 with a screening of the new Meryl Streep (above) and Amy Adam vehicle, Julie and Julia, which follows chef Julia Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career as juxtaposed with blogger Julie Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiment in making every recipe from Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; famed Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Tocchini says that he plans to mix the programming up, offering wide-release films as well as screening art films more ordinarily seen at the Rialto or Rafael Film Center. As for folks who recline, tippling comfortably in the dark and begin perhaps to feel amorous, or who get actually drunk or who might accidentally break things, Tocchini is cautiously sanguine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know yet what the ABC [Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control] will require,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the license, but they always want things that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the problems will be until we open.â&#x20AC;? But this seasoned businessman isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too worried. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every week,â&#x20AC;? he assures, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re practicing.â&#x20AC;? Hollywood and Wine at the Raven Film Center opens on Friday, Aug. 7, with Julie and Julia. 415 Center St., Healdsburg. 707.433.6335. 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.

Meet Melissa • Cat of the Week

Meet Karma • Dog of the Week

I’m taking it easy on my own personal couch but I’d much rather be sleeping next to you on YOUR couch! I’m just a teensy bit shy but oh-so-loving and I can be the best couch potato you’ve ever seen, just waiting for lots of love and attention. To learn more about adopting Melissa or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 12-6pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org.

I believe in Karma – does that mean I believe in myself? I should: I’m sweet and loving and just a little sad that no one has adopted me yet. I’m going to be much happier in a home with people who love me. Then my sad face will be a happy one! To learn more about adopting Karma or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 12-6pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org

The Adoption Center is open 7 days a week from 12PM - 6PM and is located at 5345 Highway 12 West, Santa Rosa (just 5 miles west of Hwy 101 @ Llano Rd) www.sonomahumane.org
