›› LETTERS Rack and ruin I’m writing regarding Nikki Silverstein’s “Zero” to the Civic Center for taking down artist Sylvia Cossich-Goodman’s painting of a semi-nude woman [“Hero & Zero,” April 15]. You’ve heard this story before. Your breasts have heard this The controversial image. story before. Our county offices, our local artists’ yearly exhibit. One employee among our quarter-million souls could not bear to be assaulted every day by the twin breasts of a woman painted in happy, slapdash strokes, not nude as the daily newspaper described her—she’s wearing a three-or-four-stroke bikini bottom—and so the county administrator or the director of human resources (I forget which of that pair of artfully named worthies) felt the county should not, could not condone a “hostile workplace environment.” The painting was condemned, nipples banished to the artist’s garage. So, friends, I beg you, in the interest of the public weal: suppress your breasts’ hostility, the assault of all-too-forward nipples. Support a cleavage of the private from the common good. Bill Noble,San Anselmo

We are being covered with “dusting” from military and private jets that stream aluminum and barium salt out of their wings. They have already changed our climate. Mr. Garcia, president of the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), brags that they will control the climate worldwide by 2025. I wish this were a paranoid dream, but the information is readily available from very legitimate sources. Our lovely Marin is losing its blue skies and trees, and I for one will have my young grandchild tested for metal in her body. I wish you would do a piece about this manmade disaster beginning to happen. Lynn Scott,Forest Knolls

Handguns, especially auto/semi-automatic weapons (even when they resemble rifles), are offensive weapons. Their only purposes are war, murder and mayhem. Our police only sport handguns for their defense and convenience, as rifles are bulky and difficult to activate while their charges often easily wield hand weapons (largely because the NRA insists on protecting their “right” to bear them). It’s a matter of degree. A private citizen may not possess a nuclear weapon, a land-toanywhere launching device (or its ammunition), a hand-grenade, or, without permits, any other major explosive. Please, NRA, continue your good efforts to help people defend themselves; also apply your great influence protecting us from being offended by the growing number of thugs who, much due to your influence, can easily obtain small concealable arms for their illicit activities.

CCA: Community Caffeine Aggregation Now that Gov. Brown has committed to a program of renewable energy, maybe we can deep-six the Marin Energy Bureaucracy, with its high-paid executives and no local source of actual energy besides coffee. DavidWeinstock,Fairfax

Not in my back rail yard It’s unfortunate the electorate of Marin was not made fully aware by the pro-SMART campaign of “transit oriented development” included in Measure “Q.” Our efforts to educate the electorate on the massive developments included around SMART stations could not gain support from our elected officials to inform their constituents. Al Boro, Charles McGlashan and Steve Kinsey pushed hard for SMART but never let on as to affordable and Transit Oriented Development housing designated for these stations. Susan Adams sat on the fence while

TODs were being debated with no input. Now we are saddled with legislation from the state and support from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and ABAG that will guarantee thousands of additional units be built within a half mile of these stations. Marin is getting exactly what the pro-SMART electorate voted for, and probably with no bike routes. We said all along this was not about a train, but was about developers getting new development in Marin and bypassing the county process to do so. The biking community and the conservation community of the Marin have been duped. Ron Ford,SantaVenetia

All roads lead to home Housing and transportation—the yin and yang of county planning by Pe te r Se i d m an

W

hen the state Legislature passed two bills aimed at improving the environment, it seemed a laudable goal but a bit abstract for many. Well, the abstract is becoming reality as Marin and the rest of the state look at how those goals influence long-range planning. The first key piece of legislation, AB 32, became law in 2006. It mandates a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020—a 30 percent decrease. The bill also calls for a reduction to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. The mechanisms to achieve those reductions are wide ranging. One vision includes a scenario in which counties, cities and towns would, among other things, promote efficient energy use, encourage workforce housing and push for improved public transit. In 2008, the Legislature took AB 32 one step further down the road to regional planning: SB 375 is part of the Sustainable Communities Strategy. It seeks to coordinate land use and transportation planning. The law requires cities and counties to develop “sustainable strategies.” It pushes for integrating nonmotorized transportation, public transit, walking and transit-oriented development into local agencies’ longrange plans. “Improved planning means cleaner cities, less time stuck in your car and healthier, more sustainable communi-

ties,” said California Air Resources Board chairwoman Mary D. Nichols in a press release explaining SB 375 last autumn. “Cities that choose to develop Sustainable Communities plans that meet these targets have an advantage when it comes to attracting the kinds of vibrant, healthy development that people want.” But it also riles those who stand staunchly for local control over regional planning. To help meet greenhouse-gas-reduction mandates, the air board adopted targets for reducing emissions from passenger vehicles in metropolitan planning areas in the state. In the Bay Area, that’s the purview of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC). The air board is calling for a 7 percent reduction in emissions from passenger vehicles by 2020 and a 15 percent reduction by 2035. Meeting those targets can help a planning organization qualify for funds. Communities now consider housing and transportation as two key pieces of the same puzzle. Whatever happens to one affects the other. The ruckus over affordable housing in Novato may be a precursor to what’s in store when cities and counties start grappling with a planning process that now ties transportation to housing. For the first time, a Regional Transportation Plan to create sustainable 10 >

›› NEWSGRAMS ‘Sun’ tops in ‘lifestyles,’‘A&E coverage For 48 years, our loyal readers and writers have helped make the Pacific Sun Marin’s No. 1 newspaper for lifestyles and entertainment coverage—and the California Newspaper Publishers Association agrees! Only, the CNPA says we’re not only tops in Marin—but in all of California. On April 16 at the Wilshire Grand hotel in Los Angeles, the CNPA honored the Sun with three first-place awards in its 2011 Better Newspapers statewide competition. Competing against all weeklies in California, the Sun was tops in both the Lifestyles Coverage category and the Arts and Entertainment category. We also received first place in the CNPA’s inaugural video category, for weeklies of circulations between 16,000 and 25,000, for our “Reeling in the Years: A Brief History of Marin,” which ran in conjunction with our Sept. 24 “Cornerstones” issue, a salute to a selection of Marin’s most longstanding businesses. (Check it out this week at www.pacificsun.com.) Congratulations, Pacific Sun! Kay Ryan ‘an iconoclast’ says Pulitzers Former U.S. poet laureate Kay Ryan can now add “Pulitzer Prize-winner” to her resume—as the Fairfax resident earned the 2011 prize for poetry for The Best of It: New and Selected Poems. In honoring Ryan with the award, the Pulitzer committee lauded her for “a body of work spanning 45 years, witty, rebellious and yet tender, a treasure trove of an iconoclastic and joyful mind.” Nude ascending The naked painting can come back, say county officials. After defrocking an abstract nude painting from Civic Center walls last week, it was county officials who were left feeling exposed—exposed to legal ramifications for possibly infringing upon the First Amendment rights of San Rafael artist Sylvia Cossich-Goodman. The artist’s semi-nude “Model in the Sun” had been part of a Marin Arts Council exhibit at the Civic Center—or it was until a female employee complained and county officials stripped it from the exhibit, citing their responsibility to keep Marin’s center of county governance from becoming a “hostile work environment” for any employee. After reports about the painting’s removal last week in the Pacific Sun and other local papers, the story went viral—eventually eliciting the ire of the National Coalition Against Censorship, which, together with the First Amendment Project out of Oakland, sent a letter to the county in order to, as spokesman Michael O’Neil put it,“show them the error of their ways.” Among the NCAC’s objections was the argument that a single temporary painting could create a hostile work environment.“Even if you don’t like paintings of naked people it still is not, and cannot be perceived as, the kind of systemic, repeated behavior that creates a hostile work environment and therefore sexual harassment,” says O’Neil. As for free speech violations, O’Neil points out that “As a public space opened to exhibiting artwork, Marin Civic Center has First Amendment obligations to refrain from censoring work based on personal views. The courts say public officials can’t pull strings to get rid of artwork that they personally don’t like. That includes art featuring naked people. That even includes art featuring naked people in a venue where children might see it. The children will be fine. Really.” 10 >

point or another, even if they do better, worse or nothing later on. Bing Crosby sang for 89,000 years and the guy is known for being a nice Catholic boy with a large family who sings “White Christmas” and did a little bit of humor with Bob Hope. But he was also in jail three times for being drunk and disorderly. At the time the Hollywood machinery kept that down, but now it’s popular to print that first... so it depends on the time you’re working in. Jefferson Airplane, Starship and Grateful Dead came along when there was a massive cultural attention to change, so we’re noted more for that. That’s all right. What is it about the music business that puts people through the wringer? You put yourself through the wringer. It’s not the music business. I thought it was.

Oh well this, oh well everything’s awful.” And I was going around blaming everything but me.

Does the music scene seem formatted? It seems like every kid who plays rock just gets a black Les Paul and wants to bend the high strings and grimace. I enjoy all of that stuff. I liked KISS. I also liked the Mutants stomping around on dead fish. I like the English Beat. I like Barbra Streisand. You can’t say Barbra Streisand is no good because she doesn’t sing hip lyrics. That’s not what she’s trying to do. She’s not trying to revolutionize the government; she’s trying to sing a good love song, and she does it well. Kenny Rogers isn’t trying to be Pigpen from the Grateful Dead; he’s trying to be Kenny Rogers and he does that well. When you’re home in Mill Valley do you turn it off? Sure, I do pretty much what everybody else does. I’ll be with my daughter or my husband, or watch television, or read, or play the piano, or whatever. The only thing that’s probably apart from the rest of it is being in a rock and roll band. < APRIL 22 - APRIL 28, 2011 PACIFIC SUN 9

< 8 All roads lead to home communities is moving forward under the mandate of SB 375. The regional plan ultimately sets priorities and funding possibilities for transportation projects in each region of the state. The planning process at the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) and the MTC has been molded to the new state mandate, says county Supervisor Steve Kinsey, who chairs the TAM board and serves on the board at MTC. “We have identified 10 performance measures, and we are going to be evaluating project proposals through this screen of 10 measures.” In a community workshop last month, TAM listened to ideas from residents about what they would like to see in the update of a Regional Transportation Plan, which is refreshed every four years and envisions what the transportation future should hold through 2040. TAM is considering the community input as well as its own deliberations in creating a list of transportation priorities the agency will submit to the MTC next month. MTC will then mull over the list and come up with a set of priorities that will go back to TAM for consideration. Those lists are for local projects that must compete for funding on a regional level. The 10 new performance measures Kinsey mentions refer to the new view of transportation projects as mandated by SB 375. In addition to looking at the project specifics, TAM and MTC must also consider climate protection and adequate housing. “It’s an interesting discussion and a healthy one,” says Kinsey. “The [regional plan] will be different because it’s really focusing on the goals of the sustainable communities strategy through SB 375.” Reducing congestion and vehicle-miles traveled will be priorities in the project selection process, along with emissions reduction. “I think alternative-transportation projects will rank higher,” Kinsey adds, “so the bike-ped folks around here will like that. The transit folks should be pleased. The highway folks should be a little bit nervous.” Kinsey points to how forging a strong connection between transportation and housing in the new planning process will transform the regional plan—and the type of projects that rank high on the to-do list. “I’ve been saying at the MTC over the last three months, that the [Regional Transportation Plan] is not going to be a transportation plan, it’s going to be a housing plan.” That’s because the new Sustainable Communities Strategy requires that the numbers of new housing units needed in an area must be part of a housing-needs assessment as well as the transportation plan. “The initial calculation is that the Bay Area is coming up 900,000 units short over the next planning period,” says Kinsey. “Sixty percent of that housing needs to be in the affordable category.” Of the total number of units needed, only about 10,000 are in Marin. But considering the affordable housing flap in Novato recently, 10 PACIFIC SUN APRIL 22 - APRIL 28, 2011

which mirrors other communities grappling with state housing mandates, the new Sustainable Communities Strategy will do little to calm the concerns of those who fight for more local control. While the new rules affect MTC on the transportation side, on the housing side, the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) will create a plan that draws a correlation between housing and transportation; virtually no one expects the next round of determining housing-needs will be easy in this more complicated process than the one currently debated in Novato and other towns in Marin. Most of Marin’s transportation funds come from state and federal programs. MTC sets funding priorities based on the regional plan criteria, which now include the sustainable communities idea. And Marin has two additional sources of transportation funds: about $20 million a year from the half-cent Measure A sales tax and about $2 million from a vehicle registration fee. When TAM set out to gather public input, its process ensured contributions from minority and disadvantaged communities sometimes left out of planning decisions. Trudy Totty, a consultant who works on outreach programs, helped set up a method to encourage participation from a wide range of interested residents. “I wanted to have outreach to as many people as possible. We did it in a very grassroots way.” That strategy included working phone banks, distributing fliers at transit centers, using online resources and “social media stuff.” The effort worked. The workshop last month was well attended. “We did it more the nonprofit way rather than the corporate way, which is more standard in government,” says Totty. Kinsey says the turnout at the workshop was impressive. “There were about 100 people, and it was the most multicultural event I have seen in a while in Marin, partly because MTC and TAM both contracted with Grassroots Leadership Network to reach out. They did a good job.” Kinsey says the feds are “making a special effort to make sure” that transit agencies and sales tax authorities are seeking participation from disadvantaged communities in their jurisdictions when conducting outreach programs. TAM’s outreach program for the Regional Transportation Plan “illustrate[s] that we made every effort to offer accessibility to the process.” The community input gathered at the workshop included some unique visions. The owner of a new electric-bicycle store in Novato, for example, suggested that electric bikes be included in a proposal to promote electric vehicles. Workshop participants not surprisingly said they would like to see more public transportation. “Public transit will be important in this round of the Regional Transportation Plan update,” says Susan Adams, Marin supervisor and vice president on the ABAG board, “especially because operating funds are

drying up. There seem to be plenty of ways for us to get capital funds to buy buses and build stops and those kinds of things, but there are very limited funds for actually getting the operators to drive your bus around for you.” The ability to buy buses means a lot less when there’s no money to run them. “If you’re building sustainable communities and transit-oriented development, there’s an assumption that you’re actually going to have a public system of transportation that works, that’s efficient.” The difference between the goal and the financial reality doesn’t always meet in the middle. Adams notes that Marin Transit has posted some impressive numbers. The county’s public-transit provider “has demonstrated huge leaps of growth with not a lot of growth in revenue.” Before Measure A passed in 2004, Marin Transit tallied about 1.5 million rides per year. (Some of the money raised through the measure goes to public transit.) “We’re about 3.2 million rides per year now,” says Adams. And that number represents trips that mostly begin and end within the county. The harsh reality of public transit, however, is that all rides require subsidies, no matter what system. And the Marin County Transit District is looking at increasing costs and a declining commitment from the state and the feds to fund pubic transportation. It means Marin Transit might have to dip into emergency reserves in a time of increasing ridership. The financial picture will be the topic of a public meeting May 16 at the Civic Center.

It’s not unusual for regional planning goals to bump into local control issues— as evidenced in Novato over setting the housing needs for the city. It’s also seen in an idea at MTC to consolidate numerous transit agencies in the area. “There’s an idea that New York, Seattle, Boston, Portland, all have one transit agency for the whole metropolitan area and we have 21,” says Kinsey. “The fear of the small [agencies] in particular was that there’s going to be some effort to collapse everybody into a single agency or a few agencies.” Considering political reality, that’s not likely to happen in the near future. But, adds Kinsey, “We may be looking at how to get more efficiency out of the gaps and overlaps” in the current transit infrastructure in the Bay Area. Adams maintains her caution that in the midst of talk about regional planning, the county should guard against losing funds for its projects. “The concern is that we will have a set pot of money, and if MTC and TAM decide that they are going to allocate funds from our county’s program to support other programs [such as backstopping the shortfall for SMART], what doesn’t get done then? The county has 420 miles of roads, and we need hundreds of millions of dollars worth of repairs and upgrades to fix our infrastructure.” And that just covers county roads. < Contact the writer at peter@pseidman.com.

< 8 Newsgrams County officials said their initial instinct was to lean in the direction of employee workplace rights, but after all the press and talk of constitutional violations they’re now leaning the other way, according to Mona Miyasato, chief assistant county administrator. “After further research, we’ve requested the Marin Arts Council contact the artist to reinstall the painting,” says Miyasato, who made the initial call to remove the painting.“I am very sorry for any negative effect it has had on the particular artist or art lovers in Marin.” Deputy County Counsel Renee Brewer describes respecting employees’ rights with First Amendment freedoms of expression as a balancing act. “Upon further review, and in balancing these rights,” says Brewer,“the county of Marin has offered to restore Ms. Sylvia Cossich-Goodman’s painting to the exhibition.”

Boat capsizes outside San Quentin San Quentin tower guards found themselves scouring the grounds outside the prison walls Wednesday night after sighting two adults collapsed on the shoreline at around 1am. According to the Marin County Sheriff’s office, a man and woman in their 40s from Larkspur had washed ashore after their 14-foot motorboat capsized sometime after leaving a dock on Corte Madera Creek at around 10pm. The man had fallen into the bay without a life jacket near San Quentin Point while trying to restart the vessel’s failing engine; the boat capsized as he tried to reboard. The man was unconscious when paramedics arrived at the scene; he was pronounced dead at Marin General Hospital a short while later. Officials said he suffered from hypothermia and cardiac arrest. The woman, who was wearing a life jacket, was treated by hospital staff for exposure. Deputies believe alcohol was involved in the accident. Names of the victims have not been released. The Sheriff-Coroner’s office plans to conduct an autopsy. Novato Democrats ‘stand up’ in affordable housing debate The current debate in Novato over how and where to increase the city’s affordable housing element has thus far focused on issues of aesthetics, NIMBYism, overcrowding and real-orperceived fears of crime. But now it’s getting political. The Novato Democratic Club has officially entered the affordable housing conversation—throwing its support behind a new group called Stand Up for Neighborly Novato, which formed in February with a mis-

sion, according to group members, to shift what has become a heated debate into a more â&#x20AC;&#x153;fact-based, respectful community dialogue.â&#x20AC;? Now, Novatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official local branch of the California Democratic Party says it has â&#x20AC;&#x153;voted overwhelminglyâ&#x20AC;? to stand behind Stand Up. Suzanne Brown Crow, the NDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, says Stand Upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work aligns itself with traditional Democratic values on an environmental level, as well as one of social equality.â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope the result is more reasonably priced housing options for Novato residents and workers,â&#x20AC;? said Brown Crow via a statement to the press. Novatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;housing elementâ&#x20AC;? of its General Plan must be submitted to the state this year. According to state requirements, the city must include 313 units of extremely low- to low-income housing in the plan. Stand Up co-founder Annan Paterson says the group supports letting city planners conduct their research, collect data and come up with a planâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;meanwhile, Stand Up members are on an information campaign throughout the city, introducing residents to folks who live in affordable units and, as Paterson told the Sun last month, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to counter some of the scare tactics and wedge politics that are going on.â&#x20AC;? The group says that Novato already has several examples of affordable housing units that have successfully met state guidelines and â&#x20AC;&#x153;reflect Novatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s characterâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;among them are Meadow Park, the Villas at Hamilton, Mackey Terrace and the Next Key.

RV Sanitary to consider boosting rates, staff The Ross Valley Sanitary District is doing its share to curb the unemployment rate, as district General Manager Brett Richards is floating a plan to hire 11 new permanent employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bringing the total number of employees at RVSD up to 49. The district already this year has added eight pipe workers, an accountant and an administrative assistant. And if the district board approves the hirings, customers may face an 80 percent, on average, rate increase to help pay for the new bloodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about $400 a year for Ross Valley residents, and about $600 a year for Larkspur customers. At a time when many county agencies are tightening their belts, and even downsizing staff, RVSD says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking an aggressive approach to replacing nearly 200 miles of outdated, decades-old pipes. The move is an attempt to stave off costly sewage leaks, such as the pair of sewage spills in December that poured out about 3 million gallons of untreated sewage in Kentfield and Greenbrae. The proposal comes at a time when many county officialsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a 2010 Marin grand jury reportâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are calling for consolidation of Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numerous agencies, not expansion. The Ross Valley Sanitary District has been criticized by some for being the lone holdout in a proposal to consolidate with San Rafael and Corte Madera. Meanwhile, the district continues to rack up legal feesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it recently settled a lawsuit to the tune of $4.75 million to bring an end to a dispute over land in East Larkspur; and it currently has a suit pending against a South Bay construction firm stemming from the December spills. The district board next meets April 20 at 6:45pm at 750 College Ave. in Kentfield.

VSome folks think the royal wedding is the big news this week, but we think Kay Ryan winning the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for poetry trumps all other fanfare. Ryan, a Fairfax resident, teaches at the College of Marin and was the U.S. Poet Laureate from 2008 to 2010. The Pulitzer Prize for poetry, awarded on the recommendation of the Pulitzer Prize Board, is for a distinguished volume of original verse by an American author. Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, The Best of It: New and Selected Poems, was cited by the board as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a body of work spanning 45 years, witty, rebellious and yet tender, a treasure trove of an iconoclastic and joyful mind.â&#x20AC;? Bravo, kudos, mazel tov and congratulations to Marinite and Pulitzer Prize-winner Kay Ryan.

N E E R G GOING PINNIPED SERENADE Seal experts to Marin: Be kind to our fin-footed friends!

This means your chances of stumbling across a tiny, tanglement around it.

And while the experts there basically nursing for the first four to six weeks of life.

Instead, wisely it was nighttime, it wasn’t until the next morning that they call the Marine Mammal Center; a mammal-rescue expert realized the sea lion’s right eye had been blown out from a

gunshot. Their best guess is that a fisherman shot him to keep him away from his catch. “His left eye was still intact, but didn’t appear to be functioning correctly,” says Oswald. Silent Knight (so named due to his unusual quiet dignity in the face of his painful ordeal) did not regain his sight, and could not be released back into the wild even after his rehabilitation. The Marine Mammal Center is in negotiation now with the San Francisco Zoo, which is hoping to create a special exhibit for Silent Knight to live in. Oswald says that nearly 13 percent of the animals rescued in 2010 were injured as a result of human intervention, a category that ranges from downright abuse and harassment of an animal to injuries related to ocean trash entanglement, fishing hooks, boat strikes or effects of oil and tar spills. Being bad stewards of the environment and its creatures is especially unhelpful when things are already tough enough out there for seals of all kinds, says Oswald. Sea lions, for instance, are always struggling to find food. In 2009, 75 percent of the 1,700 rescued marine mammals were sea lions, mostly pups, which went out to forage for food upon weaning, but couldn’t find any. And this is a breed of seal that is opportunistic and will eat whatever fish it can find. “There were huge numbers of these animals, skin and bone, coming into the center, just horrible to see,” says Oswald.

Ainley is particularly interested in figuring out why Adelie penguins are thriving, at a time when similar species appear to be on the decline.

“All of the whales have been removed—from South America to the Antarctic and the Indian Ocean, too,” says Ainley. “The Ross Sea is the last place with an existing food web.” In 2002 Ainley began writing reports to the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) about the exploitation of the Antarctic sea life. “It has taken forever to understand how marine ecosystems work. This is our last chance,” he says of his attempts to protect the Ross Sea. Pressure on the commission has helped turn the tide to designate the Ross

GOING GREEN That touch of minke San Rafael biologist Jonathan Stern is spouting off to save the minke whale by N ik k i Silve r ste in

T

he unassuming man sporting long white hair, a white beard and a single dangling earring looks like a younger, hipper version of Moses on the Mount. He is Jonathan Stern, a marine biologist widely recognized as the world’s leading researcher of minke whales. Studying minke whales for more than 30 years has placed Stern in some interesting positions. He’s intentionally put himself in the middle of the international whaling debate and unintentionally found himself in the ocean surrounded by dozens of dogfish sharks. Through it all, he remains committed to collecting data about the minke, the most abundant and most hunted whale in the world. When Stern was 8 years old, his seafaring father worked on a ship that collided with a whale. Seeing local news coverage of the giant luxury liner disabled by a single mammal, his fascination with whales set in. Stern read everything he could about the animals; however, at the time, most information was based on the killing of whales, such as the number of barrels of oil produced from a carcass. Homegrown in Marin, Stern graduated from Terra Linda High School in 1973. At College of Marin, he took a marine biology class from Al Molina, a popular teacher who greatly influenced him. Prior to his class with Molina, he didn’t realize that studying whales was a viable career option. Currently a biology professor at San Francisco State University, Stern has

When did you start working with marine wildlife? I volunteered at the Marine Mammal Center when it first opened in 1975. They had no money. There was only one truck and it belonged to the director. I once took a sea lion in the back of my car to a vet in Berkeley. Was that an eventful trip? It was unusual. I put a tarp in back of my Audi Fox and put the sea lion in. He was a juvenile, about the size of a big dog. I remember he was very curious and not aggressive. I rolled all the windows down, because it didn’t smell good. When we stopped at a light, the sea lion sort of sat up, put his front flippers on the door and leaned his head out. The woman in the next car looks at the sea lion and looks over at me. “That’s the ugliest dog I’ve ever seen,” she said. How did you go from chauffeuring sea lions to studying minke whales? I started working with the Northeast Pacific Minke Whale Project in the San Juan Islands in 1980. Before that, no one was studying minkes without killing them first. People said we couldn’t do it. I found that to be a challenge. It’s been more than 30 years and I’m still with the project. In 2007, we expanded the project to include the Bay Area.

The small and speedy minke can often be a tough find for Stern.

served as conservation chair for the national board of directors for the American Cetacean Society, co-authored the book Minke Whales, and been featured in National Geographic magazine. When he’s not in his boat searching for minke whales in the waters around Marin, he’s probably strumming his guitar at home in his Terra Linda Eichler.

Why did people think you couldn’t study the minke whale in its natural habitat? Minkes are the smallest and fastest baleen whales. They change direction all the time. We call them slinky, dinky minke. They’ll surface once and you won’t see them again. They don’t have a very visible blow. Minkes make lousy things to look for in the ocean.

Is that why we frequently hear about blue whales and humpbacks, but not so much about minkes? That’s part of it. I think we hear about endangered species more. We have three times as many humpMinke’s best friend. backs as minkes off our coast, two times as many blue whales and more fin whales. Those baleen whales are endangered, but the minke isn’t. Minkes just don’t have as good a press agent as the other whales. Consider a local population of a few dozen whales. If there’s an ecological disaster, oil spill, toxins—it could wipe out the whole population. How many minkes are off our coast? About a couple of dozen. You can see them from shore, at Limantour Beach, Chimney Rock in Point Reyes, Muir Beach. Minkes are whales of the continental shelf and they tend to shy away from deep water. Why do we have so few here? There may be only 600 minkes off the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington combined, with less than a thousand in the entire Northeast Pacific. I think, although the Bay Area has some of the most productive waters, the minkes have to compete with seals, sea lions, birds and humpbacks for their food.

experienced and used to looking for it. Are there days where you can’t find a minke whale? You never know until you go out and look. I spend a ton of time on the ocean and see nothing, but I’m never bored. If I’m by myself, I take notes about sea conditions, birds feeding. There’s always a sense of anticipation. You might see a great white or leatherback turtle. Or, you might see something that no one has ever seen before. What kind of boat do you use? It’s a 22-foot boat named the Eleanor M., after the woman who started the Northeast Pacific Minke Whale Project. Small, fast motorboats are required to study minke whales. Humpbacks, you use a big boat. Do you have to chase down the minkes? I’ve followed them as they swam fast away. I went at the top speed of the boat, 35 knots, and I couldn’t catch up with them. One day, I tried to guess where this whale was going to surface. I turned the motor off and he finally surfaced about two feet from the boat. We both were startled. I screamed and he swam off. I’ve gotten good at predicting where they’re going to be. Some whales I can’t figure out at all. Whale behaviors change due to feeding.

There aren’t many minkes here and Once you find them, what do you do? they’re small and fast.

Hope, local Doctors and a remarkable invention help severe back, neck and disc pain sufferers Special drugless, painless severe back, neck & disc pain consultations being given away free for Marin County, San Francisco & Bay Area residents who qualify…Doctor announces the unconventional protocol patients report helps their severe back, neck & disc pain, but the Doctor and his weary staff under the crush of demand from suffering local Marin County & Bay Area patients may be forced to stop all consultations temporarily Bay Area Residents – Everyone who suffers with severe back, disc or neck pain hates the frustration, limitation and uncertainty that go with it. But worse than that is the frustration and anxiety that comes with trying treatment after treatment and being confronted with the grim reality that you’re facing the prospect of painful spinal injections or worse yet invasive surgery. Well now, the widely known doctor and clinic director at the Marin Center for Spine Pain is giving away his expertise for free to all Marin County, San Francisco and Bay area residents for at least the next 72 hours. The only action readers have to take is calling the Bay Area Severe Back, Disc & Neck Pain Hotline before all of the appointment times are taken. Dr. Seth Labott, DC has taken this radical step in offering his expertise in the form of a no cost no obligation consultation in response to the growing frustrations of Marin County and Bay area severe back, disc and neck pain sufferers. Frustration spawned from doctors that treat them without the respect and or compassion they deserve and frustration resulting from the fear that there just might be “no hope” for a full recovery. On the heels of New Year’s demand for new and improved health and just in time for Spring, here’s an opportunity to see if most of the San Francisco area’s severe back, disc and neck pain sufferers can truly LOVE life again. These free consultations with the doctor are likely to be gone within 72 hours so those who beat the deadline are those most likely to get the direct access they need and want. This doctor and his remarkable severe back, disc and neck pain protocols are being received so well and sufferers are Àocking to his of¿ce because he offers REAL HOPE to long time sufferers who feel they’ve “tried

everything” and still have yet to ¿nd a solution for their severe pain. His following has grown to such a large degree at least in part to the fact that he offers severe pain sufferers REAL options that involve NO DRUGS, NO SURGERY, NO INJECTIONS. And quite possibly, best of all is the fact that his treatment protocols are HIGH TECH and completely PAINLESS! The unique treatment protocols have met with rave reviews; so many rave reviews that it’s almost hard to believe. Well the good news is that this hard working, humble, soft-spoken, incredibly attentive, sensitive and compassionate doctor has created an interesting bind that has forced him to limit the number of free consultations he is able to offer. “We realize how many people are out there that are needlessly suffering and yet I also realize that what sets me apart is the fact that I’m willing to take the time each and every patient needs in order to not only help them get better but also to help them feel heard. I knew those with chronic pain needed our brand of caring…I just underestimated how much and because of the overwhelming response I’ve been forced to limit the number of consultations I can do. Just so I can continue to offer the personal and direct support each of my patients deserves.” This is what Dr. Seth Labott, DC con¿rmed when asked about limiting free consultations to area severe pain sufferers. Dr. Labott also con¿rmed that if you call the Disc & Spine Pain Center Hotline within 72 hours of the publication of this article he would guarantee readers that they’d receive an appointment with him personally. Dr. Labott also said, “We can’t accept all patients, but we bend over backwards for ones we do.”

QDOCTORS RIGHT HERE IN SAN FRANCISCO, TREATING PATIENTS LIKE PEOPLE: Every severe back, neck and disc pain sufferer wants to avoid surgery, save money, avoid becoming disabled and ultimately get back to the normal pain free life they had BEFORE their pain became the most dominant force in their life. The Doctor and staff at the Marin Center for Spine Pain are working near capacity to accommodate all of the Marin County, San Francisco and surrounding area severe back, neck and disc pain sufferers they’ve opened their doors to. The fact that this remarkable doctor has opened his doors at ZERO cost for San Francisco area severe back, disc and neck pain sufferers to discover if they might be helped by these unique, exclusive and non invasive treatment protocols is truly amazing and the appreciation from the community is obvious. Dr. Seth Labott, DC reports he may NEED to stop offering FREE ACCESS because of the overwhelming response, however by calling the Bay Area Severe Back, Disc & Neck Pain Hotline you can STILL get in to see the doctor at no cost…provided appointments are still available. Bay Area Severe Back, Disc & Neck Pain Hotline (415) 389-1145.

The value of your free consultation is over $247 and probably more important than the money you save is the opportunity to sit down with the con¿dence in knowing that relief for your severe back, disc or neck pain is on its WAY. So whether you’ve got pain in your back, herniated disc, slipped disc, bulging

disc, sciatica, numbness, pain in the groin or hip…no matter what treatments have failed you this is your ONE opportunity to possibly END all your pain and frustration and get your life back once and for all. P.S. This offer will expire on Wednesday, April 27th at 6 p.m. Copyright © 2009 CMC, LLC

Even people who almost gave up…even people who thought they’d need a miracle… even people who some may have thought were hopeless cases…have beneÀted “…thank you for saving me from a lifetime of pain and for giving me back my youth.” “Thank you for the renewed lease on life that I have received from the Café of Life and your Spinal Decompression machine. I had suffered from repeated bouts of back spasms over the past 3 years with three debilitating episodes per year each lasting for 3 weeks or more. My career was on the line. As a remodeling contractor I cannot work without a healthy back and each episode was extremely costly to me and my company. After repeated trips to my MD for back pain meds and rehab, I thought I should give chiropractic treatment a try. I came to you in pain and you got me stable and pain free (without drugs!) in less time than I thought possible. I believe it was the spinal decompression machine that made me whole again. An MRI showed 2 herniated discs in my low back, and I thought that my days as a contractor were numbered. Thanks to your spinal decompression machine, I no longer believe that is true. Since completing my treatment, I feel 20 years younger; my back feels solid and strong and I have not had even the slightest tingle of pain. This is astounding since I believed I would never be this vigorous at the work I love again. I sincerely thank you for saving me from a lifetime of pain and for giving me back my youth. I was not ready to give up running, climbing or my career to a stupid back injury. Your spinal decompression therapy ended that pain. I will continue to do whatever I can to let others know of this wonderful new treatment.” ~ Paul H.

“…these treatments have not only changed the way I feel, they have changed the way I think about my future.” “Returning to a healthy, active lifestyle after several years of relentless low back pain and increasing immobility has been life-changing. Spinal decompression has allowed me to be pain free without medication throughout my day—sitting, standing, moving, and even playing with my grandchild. Non-invasive and incredibly comfortable from the Àrst relief-giving pull, these treatments have not only changed the way I feel, they have changed the way I think about my future. Thank you, Dr. Seth at Cafe of Life!” ~Anita F.

Acupuncturist Helps Alzheimer Patient! Testimonial for Dr. Sung Kwan Kim:

arbara Wedell has been a good friend and yoga student for 32 years. She was diagnosed with â&#x20AC;&#x153;B Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven years ago and has gone through a steady decline. I began to feel she hardly knew me. I had to guide her carefully by the arm to her place in the room, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d act confused as to direction and instruction. I began to notice an improvement in December and it continued from week to week. She began to look as though she had some life behind her eyes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a faint gleam of her previous character. Now she was alert and even making mild wisecracks. Even more amazing, when I rang her house to say that I was sick so

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be no class, she was solicitous and said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give Gene the message. I suggested that she write it down but she said, no, she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget. Her previous memory span had been less than a minute. Nervous that she might have forgotten to deliver the message, I rang again to talk to Gene, but he told me she had remembered perfectly! Gene told me about this wonderful Korean acupuncturist who had been treating her during her recovery. Everyone else in the class began to remark on the huge differences in Barbaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior and comprehension and was as thrilled as I was.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Gini Savage

Dr. Kim studied Western and Eastern medicine in Korea and has a U.S. Ph.D. He had a serious brain hemorrhage three and a half years ago, and cured himself. Since then, he has become particularly interested in brain injuries. For further information contact Gene Wedell at 415-453-7911.

ith a rocky economy, taxes due earlier this month and a wallet thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consequently slimmer than usual, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be nice if you could catch a break? Spring is right around the corner and as we get excited about adding lighter colors and fun patterns into our wardrobe, most of us are still sensitive when it comes to spending. Stores, aware of consumerspending habits, have been aggressive in trying to get you to come in by offering sales every other week. While the sales may be enticing, I have an even better solution to stretching that dollar: consignment-store shopping. You may think of a consignment store as a dusty secondhand store where your aged auntiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; clothing went to rest. Time for a reality check. Consignment shops are one of the best places to ďŹ nd a true deal. The clothing there is usually worn but, only slightly worn, leaving it in reusable condition. For instance, that beautiful green cashmere sweater you love at the department store costs $150. At a consignment store a similar sweater from last season in a slightly different shade of green will cost anywhere from $48-$60. With that steep savings, you could be adding new spring items to your closet without feeling the pinch. To point out the amazing savings youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll encounter, I visited a pair of local consignment shops in search of great deals. First stop was Sax in San Anselmo. This boutique may be small in size but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge on designer

fashions. With such a limited area to work with, owner Jen Hansen is very selective in her inventory, guaranteeing you get the ďŹ nest. Right as you walk in youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll immediately see a wall of shoes to die for with designer names youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re familiar with: Manolo Blahnik, Stuart Weitzman and Robert Clergerie to name a few. My eye caught a particular pair of shoes designed by Calleen Cordero. I had never heard of the name before so I asked Hansen about them. She told me they were from a designer in Los Angeles who handcrafts all her shoes, purses and accessories. The leather was beautiful and the studded detail is deďŹ nitely â&#x20AC;&#x153;inâ&#x20AC;? right now. These shoes retail for $400 and Sax has them priced at $110, and they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever been worn! Above the shoes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a gorgeous selection of handbags, perfect for the person who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stomach retail handbag prices in department stores. A tapestry Gucci bag was begging to be handled. Though this bag was a bit too eccentric for me, I was curious about the cost. The original retail was $1,425 and the Sax price was $425â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a savings of $1,000! Another great deal to discover is in the jeans department. Jeans can be so expensive, so let someone else pay the original retail price. I found a cute pair of Current/Elliott skinny jeans priced at $85, a bit less expensive than the retail price of $220, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cut! Pair those jeans with a gorgeous cashmere Vince sweater (retail $240) available here for $75 and you have a complete outďŹ t for less than it would cost for just one of those items if paying retail. Another steal was a summery Robert Rodri-

guez dress with the price tags still on (retail $1,030) priced at $350. So if you are looking for the latest boutique fashions and want to ďŹ nd exceptional deals, this is the place you should be visiting regularlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;new inventory gets put out every day, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out! The other consignment store I visited was What Poppy Wants on Magnolia in Larkspur. As you walk into this store you might feel as though youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stepping into the closet of someone who saved everything she wore through every decade of her life. From faux fur jackets to vintage beaded tops, boas and boots galore, this is the place to ďŹ nd something that will not only steal the show, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been seen on anyone else. Are you a lover of vintage? Come on down! Entering, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be greeted by a serious collection of cowboy boots. Whether you prefer yours in chocolate brown, caramel, turquoise or pink, this shop has the boot for you. A nice pair of cowboy boots can cost anywhere from $300 and upward, but here youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ nd them priced around $80. Once I got past the boots I spotted a gorgeous vintage black-and-pink lace dress with beaded detail. This dress would make you think back to the days when you liked dressing up like a princess or perhaps imagined being a passenger on the Titanic (one of the survivors, no doubt). In another corner of the store was a group of alligators... shoes and purses, that is. With all the savings and the great ďŹ nds on barely worn clothing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost a crime not to shop at consignment stores. The only downside is that you might fall in love with a dress or a shoe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not your size. You need the self-control to

rememberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when buying new or usedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that just because you love it, if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t also ďŹ t properly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to leave it for someone else. After shopping in these stores you may be inspired to go home, cull the gently worn clothes that are in your own closet and march down to a consignment store and resell them. Most consignment stores work in the same way. You can bring your clothing to the store (call ahead, as some stores only take clothing on certain days or by appointment) and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look through your items and decide which items they think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to sell. Stores usually take current piecesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;fashions from within the last two to three years that are in great conditionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or vintage if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their specialty. They then display the clothing in the store for two to three months. Once your items have been sold theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay you 50 percent of what it was sold for. If you do some consignment store investigating, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon discover the ones you like best. Then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to you to become a regular. My signature handbag, the one I wear the most, came from a consignment store. I probably would have bought it at full price had I seen it in a regular store, but it was all the sweeter to ďŹ nd it at a fraction of the cost. Just remember though, all sales are ďŹ nal. So shop these stores when you have the luxury of time and can hunt until you ďŹ nd something you love. < Brenda Kinsel is a fashion and image consultant based in Marin.

very Wednesday night we have to remember to put the milk bottles out on the porch. About 9 or 10pm we hear the loud â&#x20AC;&#x153;vroomâ&#x20AC;? of the milkmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck as it pulls in the driveway. With headlamp in place, he comes up on the porch and deposits a crate of full milk bottles, taking away the empties when he leaves. The glass bottles clink in a way that reminds me of my childhood. Back then, my family also had a front porch. It was like a little room, with a door that closed and glass windows on three sides. There was a built-in cabinet hanging on one wall with several compartments. The large compartment held all our mittens and hats for the cold winters in New Jersey and the small compartment was where the milkman put our milk twice a week. That milkman came at 4 in the morning. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what kind of truck he drove but I know it was a truck of some sort because he ran over the wheel of my bike one time and bent it permanently. The milk had a cap of cream under the foil lid and my siblings and I would ďŹ ght for who would get the creamy portion on their cereal in the morning. For the most part, milkmen went the way of rotary phone and dinosaurs, descending into extinction. However, in my adult life Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really needed a milkman. My family drinks lots of milk and we were always running out of it at the most inconvenient times. I found myself going to the store often during the week just to get milk and ending up with way more than that, thereby spending money unnecessarily.

Friends told me about the Marin Sonoma Milkman, aka Ron La Mariana. Affectionately called Mr. Moo, he delivers fresh milk (and many other goodies) to porches in Sonoma and Marin, bringing back a bit of bygone days. The milk is some of the best aroundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Straus Family Creameryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic cow juice. Straus is recognized as the ďŹ rst organic dairy west of the Mississippi. The creamery has been in operation since 1941 but went organic in 1994. Many others followed suit, including Clover Stornetta, an operation that gathers both organic and conventional milk from several West Marin family dairy operations. Marin ranks 15th out of 43 California counties in milk production, both organic and conventional. There are approximately 27 dairies in Marin and, though this hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a good year proďŹ tability-wise for local creameries, their heritage is long and strong. Now that I have a more consistent, fresh and wholesome milk supply, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing around with some recipes. The pork dish is based on the classic preparation from Bologna. The loin is a tricky cut to cook because it can easily become dry, but braising it in milk renders the meat succulent and tender. The milkshake is a great way to showcase the fresh strawberries that are popping up in markets right now. We are so lucky to have organic milk produced by family farms right here in Marin, and have our own milkman named Mr. Moo to bring it home. --------------------------------------------

Pork Loin Braised in Milk Yields 4-6 servings 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 pounds boneless pork loin, tied, with some fat on the outside 3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed with the side of a knife 1 large sprig fresh sage or at least 3 leaves 2-3/4 cups fresh, organic milk (see note) Salt and pepper

Season the pork loin with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil over medium high in a small Dutch ovenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with a lidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is just large enough to hold the pork. Add pork and brown well on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Add sage and garlic and saute brieďŹ&#x201A;y until fragrant. Add milk, stirring to dislodge any browned bits on the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil, and then turn heat to low. Taste and season the milk mixture with salt and freshly ground pepper. Set the lid on the pot so that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slightly ajar and allow pork to cook slowly, about 1 hour, basting and turning the roast frequently, until the internal temper-

Honk if you’re horny Pervy serial caller worse than we thought—he’s also a car salesman... by N ik k i Silve r ste in

A

few weeks ago I wrote a column about a man who was calling my home and knew my name. After the article ran, three women contacted me to share that they had also received phone calls from “David,” a man with a British accent claiming to be a photographer in town to do a shoot for Manolo Blahnik. His conversations degenerate from there, the gist of which indicates he has a foot fetish. It seems David’s a frequent dialer. Perverse, though not diverse, he used the same shtick with all of us. Whatever works, I guess. A few troubling questions repeatedly surfaced in the e-mails between the other women and me. How did he find us? Why did he choose us? Who is he? We attempted to determine if we had anything in common. A bank, gym or dog walker? Nothing clicked. If there are four, there are more. My thoughts became preoccupied with ways to uncover his identity. (Clearly, I have too much time on my hands.) Last week, I entered a few of the keywords used by David into Google. Nothing. I added a few significant phrases, and voila, a site pops up where women are writing about his freaky phone calls. I read each comment carefully. Oh yeah, this is definitely the guy. Surprisingly, David sometimes neglects to block his number, allowing at least one woman to see it on her caller ID. This is too easy. Could I actually have his phone number? I pull up whitepages.com, click the reverse directory and enter the 10 digits. A man belongs to the number, only his name isn’t David and his last name is rather unusual. (To keep it simple, I’ll still refer to him as David.) I enter his name and city of residence into Google and get a hit. More than a dozen years ago, he provided a quote in a newspaper article indicating he’s a car salesman in San Francisco. Figures. I’ve never been in that San Francisco dealership; however, I write copy for a few auto dealers. Maybe David now works for one of my clients. A few keystrokes provide the answer. He sells cars at a Marin dealership that I used to work with. The dealer’s website displays his photo, which I scrutinize. Though I don’t recall meeting him, this can’t be mere coincidence. I call an acquaintance in the sales department there and confirm that David is indeed British and our paths crossed during my tenure. Gotcha. I reach out to the three women and find

that only one has a connection to the dealership. Well, I haven’t answered all our questions, but I aim to. I’m going for a test drive. My girlfriend Melissa, a former model, seems like the right person to accompany me. She has very nice feet. I explain our mission and she agrees to follow me into battle. The dealer’s receptionist confirms that David is working today. Wearing our most flattering strappy sandals to show off our fresh pedicures, Melissa and I walk onto the lot. Within seconds, a salesman approaches us. Not him. Apparently, our pervert is helping someone else, so we say we’ll wait—as long as it takes. To occupy our time, Melissa and I review our strategy. My name is now Julia, I wear huge sunglasses and I speak with the Southern accent I worked so hard to overcome years ago. If we have to show a driver’s license, it will be Melissa’s. David will have plenty of time to learn who I am once we get him on a test drive. Anticipation builds. We’ll toy with him before busting him. We practice while waiting. “Your voice sounds familiar,” Melissa says. “This car is so luxurious,” I declare. “I feel like I should be wearing Manolo Blahniks.” “Have you noticed all these bugs crawling around?” asks Melissa. “Shall I squash them?” Oh, how he’ll squirm. Then we’ll tell him we know who he is. Just thinking about his discomfort makes me feel better. I am taking control. Hearing my phone ring would no longer be cause for anxiety. Finally, David greets us. He’s handsome, much better looking than his photo. I recognize his voice immediately, yet it’s difficult to reconcile the twisted caller with this mild man in front of me. His smile is soft and nice. Honestly, he’s charming. While he goes inside to fetch some keys, Melissa and I agree we never expected him to be nice. When David returns, we make an excuse and leave without a test drive. Hours later, we kick ourselves for acting wimpy. We kind of understand David now. Confronting someone in person is difficult. Hiding behind the phone is easy. We plan to go back, only this time we’ll swig some liquid courage first. Nah, maybe we’ll just call him. < Email nikki_silverstein@yahoo.com

The talented Germanborn guitarist, who has hosted a similar showcase at the Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco over the past decade, has hosted several high-profile players including Henry Kaiser, a longtime collaborator of Celtic-rock guitar god Richard Thompson. But Gerken’s also showcased the talents of such local players as Todd Boston, Matthew Montfort (of Ancient Future) and Doug Adamz, as well as such Bay

Area players as Adam Traum (son of Bob Dylan sideman Happy Traum), Patrick Landeza, Steve Baughman, Giacomo Fiore, Mokai and Alexis Harte, among others. “I began looking for a place to host a guitar night shortly after I moved to Marin [from San Francisco] about four years ago,” says Gerken, a Fairfax resident. “I really like having an outlet to present acoustic guitar players in a comfortable setting. I like helping other players out with a gig, but it’s also really nice when players who may not otherwise know each other end up creating an evening of really diverse music. Some of the players I book are total professionals, while others don’t perform much, so every month is different. “The focus is on instrumental fingerstyle guitar, but it’s not limited to that,” he adds. “The only thing for certain is that each night is going to feature really great guitar playing in an intimate environment.” Random Notes: Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir and special guests will join the Marin Symphony Saturday, May 7, for a once-in-a-lifetime benefit concert that’s being billed as First Fusion.

BEST BET The future of blenders is in Marinwood! For those not busily cleaning creeks and picking up discarded rubbish in parks this Earth Day (because, like good citizens, you’ve already done that, right?), the Marinwood Community Farmers Market is your best bet for a fantastically fun, multipurpose visit. Celebrating its first big year slinging locally grown, organic edibles, the market is hosting an EARTH DAY FESTIVAL to make it official. With live music from San Francisco’s all lady, ukulele-playing trio the Paper Dolls The Paper Dolls would be wise to avoid the ‘papermaking blender’ at this weekend’s event. strumming and strutting their self-proclaimed raggedy glam stuff, your market experience is sure to be lively and unique—to say the least. Also gracing eardrums at the festival are Marin’s own Miracle Mule and the Las Gallinas Valley Sanitary District Non-Marching Band. On hand, too: Miller Creek School’s Bicycle Powered Paper Making Blender. How cool is that? The festivities begin at 9am, Saturday, April 23. Marinwood Community Farmers Market 101 Marinwood Ave., San Rafael. Free. 415/419-6331—Dani Burlison

ViDEO Behold a spirit Author-philosopher Alan Watts has charmed three generations of listeners into deeper understandings of themselves with his unique blend of humor, scholarship and enthusiasm for the byways of Eastern thought. The late-’60s hippies who sat in on his Sausalito houseboat talks gave way in the ‘80s and ‘90s to legions of earnest young men (many in science) who grew up on the Pacifica rebroadcasts Alan Watts, right, with publisher Steve McNamara and coland appreciated Watts’ earthy umnist Dr. Hip, at a Pacific Sun beach party in Stinson, 1969. spiritualism, with its canny and rigorous awareness of the limits of Western thought. Now, thanks to YouTube, there’s A Conversation With Myself, a 30-minute tea and talk filmed on the verdant slopes of Mt. Tamalpais in 1971—and what a showcase it is for Watts’ amazing gift of gab. Finally, Internet fame has brought him the worldwide audience he deserves. As director David Grieve pans the camera languorously over miles of rolling oat fields and oak-blanketed hillside, Watts’ emotion is palpable: “It’s astonishing... all this, only 20 or 30 minutes from the heart of San Francisco.” His call for a new environmentalism based on a real-world understanding of our connectedness to nature, delivered in that mellifluous Brit voice, could not be more timely. Converts, cultists and the similarly inclined are encouraged to visit alanwattspodcast. com, run by his son Mark, for archived talks.—Richard Gould

Public Notices Continued from Page 37

Week of April 21-April 27, 2011

ARIES (March 20 - April 19) The ego-boosting Sun has left your sign, just as humble Neptune has entered the sector of your chart ruling the subconscious. Instead of focusing on how you look on the outside, you are being pulled to look inward—this may be a strange sensation for the proud Ram. We know what a great hunter you are, but don’t let your competitive spirit spoil the Easter egg hunt for the kids. TAURUS (April 20 - May 19) The flashy Sun in your sign wants you to put on your best party clothes and go have a good time. With your imagination on overdrive, you may have some interesting ideas as to what constitutes “party clothes.” Meantime, you are likely to be uncertain about your life objectives as your ideals shift and change. Though feeling altruistic, you may resist the idea of spending all your time on nonprofit activities—due to (ahem) the lack of profit... GEMINI (May 20 - June 20) Nebulous Neptune in the career house can certainly bring a bit of vagueness when trying to decide how to proceed with your professional goals. Should you stay on an old path or forge a new one? Neptune brings a calling to either artistic or healing pursuits. Those of you working in more pragmatic fields (like finance or air traffic control) may be dreaming of a way out. Please limit the dreaming to when you’re not actually on the job... CANCER (June 21 - July 21) The quest for enlightenment is moving up higher on your list of priorities. Being the most practical of the water signs, you typically wouldn’t think of taking time off work to attend a consciousness-expanding seminar—until now. It is, in fact, a great time to find something or someone to believe in, as long as you can tell the difference between a true mentor and a fraudulent guru. LEO (July 22 - August 22) The entry of ethereal Neptune into your house of mystery, intimacy and sharing can be fascinating—and confusing. In the next several months your grasp on reality is weak in these areas. Did you really just see the spirit of your dead ancestor in your kitchen or was it a trick of light? Is your lover offering true devotion or deception? Should you really skip the pre-nup agreement or listen to your attorney? VIRGO (August 23 - September 21) As an earth sign, you are capable of being pragmatic. But when it comes to romantic love, your common sense is often missing in action— especially in the coming months, as Neptune, planet of illusion and delusion, occupies your relationship house. “Too good to be true” should be taken seriously. The playful Sun in your travel house is suggesting a trip ASAP. It’s springtime—if you are going to be a fool for love, it may as well be in Paris. LIBRA (September 22 - October 22) Your ruler (peaceful Venus) has joined the raucous crowd in the feisty sign of Aries. There is no escaping the high-energy competition that is coming your way. May as well dig out your tennis racket, softball mitt, racing bike and/or skateboard. “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” is likely to be the best response. In other news, your sex life is beginning to heat up. Yet another way to enjoy all that fired up energy... SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) In these tough times, it is difficult to consider taking a risk with the status quo—be it a regular paycheck or a monthly allotment from a trust fund or the government. However, it would be wrong to completely ignore the innovative ideas you are having. You are encouraged to explore your options for making changes to the way you function on a daily basis. Meanwhile, don’t forget about expressing your creativity. It IS Easter egg painting time. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20) After years of dealing with the unexpected in your home and family life, unpredictable Uranus finally moved on. Neptune has now moved in. Because Neptune operates in a subtler manner, you probably won’t have, for example, a piece of a satellite drop from the sky into your attic. You may, however, discover your roof has developed a slow leak or find your unemployed cousin has moved into your basement. It’s always something... CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 18) When Neptune influences the way one thinks, there is no longer a black or white vision of the world. There are many shades of gray— along with a rainbow of other colors, most especially rose. That down-to-earth logic that defines the Capricorn persona is not so much gone as simply watered down. Advice: For the next several months, give your intuition at least as much credit for knowing what to do as your intellect. AQUARIUS (January 19 - February 17) While fantasizing about being wealthy can be fun, it unfortunately doesn’t translate into fiscal reality. For the next several months, you must try to keep a firm grip on your actual financial situation. What do you really need to spend and what are you spending simply because it feels good? Meanwhile, your mind is moving a mile a minute while trying to reinvent your world. If ever you needed to learn to meditate, it’s now. PISCES (February 18 - March 19) A bit of tranquility returns to your life as the Sun occupies the sensual sign of Taurus while your ruler (enchanting Neptune) has entered your sign in order to bring, well, if not spiritual salvation, then at least an increase in soothing sensitivity. Meantime, your imagination is on a four-month high. This likely means the most artistic Easter eggs in town and/or the most unusual bunny costume in the county.

›› ADViCE GODDESS® by Amy Alko n

Q:

I’ve been married for 10 years. I’m 43, well-educated, financially well-off, and fit. My husband and I are wonderful friends, and I love him dearly. However, for reasons he won’t tell me, he decided eight years ago that he was no longer interested in sex. He says it’s “too much work.” He refuses to discuss it further. Also, for work reasons, we live apart. So, I have taken lovers. My husband doesn’t like this, but I pay all his expenses so he can live his dream life, so he doesn’t complain much. Four years ago, I moved to be with a man I got involved with, but the relationship felt more like a bridge than a destination, so I went back to my husband. Now, I love a man who wants to marry me, but I fear that ALL relationships degrade into roommate situations. I do fantasize that there’s one perfect soulmate for me, and with him, I’ll be able to commit. For now, I guess staying married helps me keep up appearances that I’m stable and normal while I hold on to the fairy tale that marriage is a forever relationship.—Compartmentalizing

A:

I must have missed that fairy tale—the one where the couple get married and go off to live happily ever after in the house with the white picket fence and the 2.5 boyfriends. Two years into your marriage, your husband took early retirement from sex, deeming it “too much work.” Well, sure, it takes some elbow grease, but it isn’t exactly picking lettuce in the hot sun for $3 an hour. Although he refuses to even discuss this any further, you keep him on staff—as your vice president of The Illusion of Safety and Security. Keeping him on your payroll allows you to play both sides of the street— married and taken and single and available. Single and available allows you your flingy fun. Still being married allows you to stay in himbo limbo—avoiding anything more emotionally risky or stressful than retreating to your couch to wait for your mythical soulmate to fall into your life like a meteorite. The truth is, there are probably various men who are compatible with you in important ways, but there is no such thing as a soulmate—no one perfect partner whose mere presence in your life will dry up all your problems like a big tube of Clearasil. No matter how compatible two people are, things will never be as hot long term as they were at the start, but they’re the unhottest for those who think a great relationship will just happen to them. Those are the people who wait until the urge strikes to hug or kiss their partner. Bad idea. Just do it—several times daily. And make a pact that you’ll keep having sex regularly—even when one of you doesn’t totally feel like it. Sex researcher Rosemary Basson found that arousal is “triggerable,” just start making out, and you’ll get turned on and get into it. Ultimately, you have to fill a marriage with loving and sexual acts, and love and sex should continue—assuming you’re with somebody whose idea of sex in marriage isn’t sending his spouse out to bars to score it off somebody else.

Q:

My girlfriend of four years is a wonderful person I still love. And, yes, I messed up and feel terrible about it. She wanted to get married and have children, and I realized I didn’t. She not only dumped me, she’s calling me horrible (and untrue) things, like a liar and a fake—weeks after telling me what a great person I am and how deeply she loves me.—Mud

A:

There’s a good chance your girlfriend spent a substantial part of your four years together waiting for you to pop the question, and not the one that goes “So, did you get all of your stuff out of my place?” Not every woman wants The Royal Wedding and a bunch of babies, but a whole lot do, especially when they’re bumping up against 30, and that shouldn’t be exotic cultural knowledge for any guy. It would’ve been nice if you’d been speedier in figuring out that you weren’t up for the husband thing. But, assuming you didn’t promise you’d marry her while crossing your fingers behind your back, it isn’t like you committed some sort of relationship fraud. Ultimately, it was up to your girlfriend to let you know that the stakes were marriage or bust. You can regret hurting her, but maybe take solace in no longer being with a woman who loves you so deeply and thinks so highly of you that she wants nothing less than to spend the rest of her life with you, you lying fake. <
