EDITOR LETTER

Dear readers, Lacustrine [luh-kuhs-trin] (adj) means “of or relating to a lake” and was the Dictionary.com word of the day on May 24. Lacustrine appeared in my inbox like one of life’s tiny, deniable miracles. Isn’t it weird that happened? Lacustrine could either be claimed as kismet or written off as coincidence. Lately, I’ve chosen the former. Like Mom telling us before she died that she would break the first plate at my brother T.J.’s wedding, and Robby, my son, breaking it. Or how my Aunt Shue—my fairy godmother and the woman Mom dubbed her “eyes on the ground”—came for my MFA graduation, booked the Davenport Grand, and was greeted by stained glass giraffes (Mom’s animal). I like to see these occurrences as constellations: patterns in the sky I use to find my way. Even though connecting the dots to form the Big Dipper is an arbitrary choice, the stars are real enough. Lacustrine is a technical term for geologists and biologists—lacustrine sediment, for example. But language is flexible, and I’m doing some repurposing because this word found its way to me while I was grappling with the idea of home. The night before, I had returned from my Aunt Shue’s home in New Berlin, a city on the border of Milwaukee. I was there for the weekend for my cousin Bug’s graduation from Marquette University; my Aunt Kitty (Bug’s mom) was throwing a vaccinated-only gathering. For the first time in over a year and a half, I saw my loud, loving, eccentric family. I was experiencing the whiplash of spending a little less than two days in the Midwest when this word appeared in my inbox. I prefer Merriam Webster’s definition: “of, relating to, formed in, living in, or growing in lakes.” Other forms include lacustral (adj), and even lacustrian (n)—“lake-dweller.” The word is derived from Latin: lacus, meaning lake. I belong to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where I spent summers with my big, crazy Catholic family my entire childhood. Having “tea parties” with cousins at the lake bottom, ripping tufts of seaweed on our way to the surface, gasping for air. Floating on my back, eyes closed. Noodle fights on the rickety raft. Mom teaching me to dive off the pier, how I belly flopped dozens of times until I got it,

12

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

when she put her arm underneath my stomach so I would have no choice but to jump headfirst, over her arm. Hearing the warbled sounds of my loud family while underwater. Once underwater, all lakes are the same, or in the very least, I convince myself of this. Find a lake; return home. Pretend when I surface that I’ll see one of their faces. Pretend I’ll see her. Homes are places, people, and yes, even things. Like the “sister bracelet” Aunt Shue gave me before I left. Mom is the oldest of seven (crazy Catholic family), with just one brother. Aunt Shue had been holding onto Mom’s because she had lost her own in Amsterdam. She wanted to wear Mom’s for a while, but the intention had always been to pass it on to me. I think Aunt Shue could tell I needed to carry something back to Spokane. I have many objects that connect me to Mom, but this also connects me to the wild group known as the Dhein women. I couldn’t possibly calculate how much of my mom is these women—how talking to them is the closest I come to talking to her. And I think I connect them to her; I imagine that’s why I’m even allowed to wear the bracelet. When I arrived at Spokane International Sunday evening, the security guard asked me if Spokane is home. I told him yes because it was the simplest answer, and true. Spokane is the place I’m raising my children. Of course it’s home. “Welcome back,” he said. The longer, more complex answer is that part of me exists always in those endless summer days because I know that’s where Mom is, too. Home is something I take with me: “of, relating to, formed in, living in, or growing in lakes.”

Liberation:

Celebrating Juneteenth

J

by Malisea “Lisa” Gardner

uneteenth is a holiday that celebrates the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. Specifically, June 19, 1865 was the date Union soldiers, led by Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas, with news the war had ended and the enslaved were now free—two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation— which became official January 1, 1863.

SPOKANE RISING


FIRST LOOK/juneteenth

The time has come for all Americans to celebrate the great significance of when news of the Confederacy's defeat reached all and true freedom prevailed. So, what does it mean? Beyond liberating slaves from the hardships of building America for 400 years, Juneteenth marks the day our country opened itself to the true possibility of freedom for all. While Fourth of July is widely celebrated by most Americans as Independence Day, what did that mean for those who were considered three-fifths of a man? As the great African American leader, Frederick Douglass said at his “What to the Slave Is Fourth of July?” speech on July 5, 1852, “The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity, and independence, bequeathed by your fathers, is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought light and healing to you, has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth [of] July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”  At the time, independence was celebrated for a country whose citizens were free, but for descendants of Africa, it was not until June 19, 1865 that liberty, prosperity, and real independence were truly attainable. From 1865 on, the celebration of Juneteenth has primarily been celebrated by Black Americans—our own “Independence Day” to rejoice in freedom, celebrate with great food, wear the best attire (shedding the rags of slavery), and remember those families torn apart or murdered during slavery.  However, unlike Independence Day, it is not celebrated by the country in unity. The time has come for all Americans to celebrate the great significance of when news of the Confederacy's defeat reached all and true freedom prevailed. Until recent times, history books only focused on President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation 18

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

Proclamation, giving very little, if any, recognition of Juneteenth—extracting from history the executive orders passed down to the last slaveowners in Texas in 1865. The country does not celebrate this freedom; instead, it was almost forgotten—until now. As we progress as a country, we push for recognition and inclusion, and in many states, Juneteenth is a recognized holiday. On April 9, Gov. Jay Inslee signed into legislation that Juneteenth will become a state-recognized holiday in Washington.     While physical slavery ended, there is still the emotional labor that continues to bind many African Americans even in the present day. As a country, we will always honor Independence Day, remember the horror of 9/11, and celebrate our veterans who served and currently protect our country; however, we must also uplift a holiday that signifies the true freedom of all people in the United States.  While the road has been long with the reconstruction period, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Movement, and decades of mass incarceration, it is time that all Americans take a sincere step in racial healing by joining Black Americans in the celebration of Juneteenth. By choosing to celebrate the last place in the South that freedom touched, celebrating Juneteenth as a country shows true progress, true solidarity, and true unity in these United States: total liberation.

lilacslemons

created by Vince Bozzi

by Paul Shields

It was with a heavy heart that I accepted the Bozzi Media family’s kind invite to write this month’s Lilacs & Lemons. Emily and Vince were family to Brianna and I. We shared their love of life, nature, and adventure, as well as a love of sustainable business in balance with our environment. Vince was my best man at our September commitment ceremony. We loved hiking, music, Best of Broadway shows with the rest of “Wiley’s Raiders,” the Spokane Symphony, and Northern Quest concerts. We had planned to go to Spain this May. Most of all, we could shed our cloaks of business and meet on the boat for heart-to-heart conversation, music, food, and occasionally…brandy and a cigar. Their loss left a huge hole in the community and a bigger one in our hearts. We would often discuss this column on the boat and come up with likely targets of both Lilacs and Lemons. Vince neither shied from controversy, nor pulled punches. In that spirit, I follow his blazed trail. LEMONS to area developers who feel they are being “blackmailed” by the City of Spokane building department responsibly reviewing applications. Perhaps this is because of a growing realization that developers need to start contributing more to infrastructure needs that accompany their projects before getting permits. For too long, area governments and officials have had pretty round heels, approving projects without looking at infrastructure accountability. For years that responsibility has landed on the taxpayers’ shoulders. Tossing out disingenuous claims of how the development will “improve our quality of life” no longer passes muster. Just look at skyrocketing rent, housing costs, property taxes, and appraisals, or the never-ending overcrowding of schools with the accompanying bond issues. Look at the traffic on inadequate infrastructure that has drivers gritting their teeth during daily commutes, or even minor errands. These issues all put the claims of “improved quality of life” to the test. Those who profit the most from these projects must be willing to shoulder more of the financial and planning burden to ensure real “quality of life” is not adversely impacted for so many struggling residents.

20

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

LEMONS AND A RASPBERRY to people who claim that those who have the aforementioned concerns are somehow against “change” or “progress” or lacking in vision. Perhaps those who want to go on conducting old school business are really the people afraid of change? More and more citizens are realizing that unbridled, poorly regulated development is no longer economically viable for them individually, nor is it environmentally and economically sound for the region. Most residents want responsible, sustainable growth that enhances our region, not a few bottom lines. More importantly, those citizens realize our land and resources are fragile, finite, and our “quality of life” can be destroyed. They want real change. LILACS to the permitting department for battling COVID-19 and advocating developer responsibility during these times of runaway growth that at times seems to be metastatic. I would also include lilacs to emerging citizens groups and activists who are embracing use of the word sustainability and are gearing up to help define a paradigm that will help our region grow at a pace that benefits all, not just developers and wellheeled transplants.

LILACS to Mayor Nadine Woodward for her entreaties to Gov. Jay Inslee to halt on pushing us back to Phase 2. He apparently listened, and at this time of writing, she secured at least two additional weeks for the metrics to reflect our vaccination numbers. Thanks for taking a stand, Mayor! Here’s hoping this global cloud is dissipating. LEMONS to Spokane Prosecutor Larry Haskell, Spokane Police Chief Craig Meidl, and Spokane Sherriff Ozzie Knezovich for their myopic efforts to gut the Spokane Regional Law & Justice Council from twenty to thirteen people. Now more than ever, it is important to have extensive and diverse citizen voices and representation in all matters of law enforcement, especially in these times where law enforcement is under the microscope. Transparency, not obfuscation, is the way the nation is moving. Trying to buck that movement will only backfire…loudly. Born in Coeur d’Alene three generations deep, Paul Shields has been in business for himself for fifty years. He has owned a bar, the ad agency Madison West, as well as Wild Designs, which has designed and built custom lighting, furniture, and accents for the last twenty-five years.

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

now she’s  taking it

skin deep


Susan Webber used to be scared. Not of needles, or pain or blood— of permanency. Of artwork living on someone until they no longer

do. But sometimes, life has a funny way of showing creatives their passion is in the right spot. They’re just not using the right tools. And sometimes, the catalyst that gets the ball rolling down the proper pike is disease. Like the Stage 3 kind, which ravaged the cells of Susan’s breasts (in a spin of irony, as she was a lactation consultant in another life), taking with it flesh and blood and protein and the mass used to feed her three kids. What it left was an instrument. One with motors, spikes, and ink. Lots of ink. “After coming out of chemo, that year I reassessed everything in my life,” says Susan, who’s been in remission for nearly two years after undergoing a mastectomy. “When I was faced with my mortality, and pulled through all that, I kind of decided to live a little fuller and go for things in life. That was my big push to change things up.” To some, that means buying a motorcycle. Or joining a spin class. For Susan, that meant tattooing. And not as a side hustle—full time, fully fledged tattooing. There’s only one problem: she’d never held a tattoo gun before, let alone used one. But easy enough right? After all, the hard part was over. For decades, the forty-three-year-old artist has been honing her craft and zeroing in on a style that she delicately describes as “black work and fine-line detail.” Visit her room in the back of The Missing Piece Tattoo on Sprague Avenue

in downtown Spokane, and you’ll instantly understand how words just can’t quite capture what’s really going on in art. The small room is covered floor to ceiling in drawing after drawing. There are no windows here, but these drawings show more than glass ever could. One is of a woman, bound in rope, her hair made of stars. She’s drawn onto the page of a book, the narrator a woman who’s lamenting marrying a man. Her father convinced her she could be “anything but happy if I married the man I loved.” On a cabinet, a drawing of a naked woman hugging a cactus. Near it, a woman’s head is a bouquet of flowers. Opposite that, on a wall, a woman spreads her arms, showing the world she’s been hiding the wings of a butterfly. They’re her wings. She could be dancing or standing still. That part is up to us. Indeed, in much of Susan’s art, women and mothers are front and center. It’s no surprise then, at this moment, surrounded by art and away from the outside world, a woman is seated in her chair, enduring a tattoo of roller-skating legs on her upper right arm. “It’s not my first tattoo,” says Natalie Veenhouwer, who met Susan through family. “But it is my first from Susan. I love it.” Zack Woods, who’s owned The Missing Piece since 2006, says Susan’s style and mastery of her art translated perfectly into tattooing. A rarity, too, since many tattoo artists first pick up a tattoo gun long before they’ve completely honed their artistic expression. Susan merely opted to do the reverse. “I just had to teach her the medium of how to work on skin. She’s super brave and was ready to take challenges on,” Zack says. “She already came with a client list that wanted her work. Which is really helpful for a tattoo artist. You need practice and Many time to work your craft. She was off to the races.” Zack raised the idea while tattooing her himself. tattoo Since that first conversation many years ago, he says artists first he became more engrossed in her work. And so has Spokane. pick up a tattoo Because odds are, if you’ve walked or driven gun long before anywhere in the city, you’ve digested it too. Last year, Susan and artist Shelby Allison they’ve completely painted a mural on the boarded-up Nike store honed their artistic downtown, which had its front doors smashed as a broken city protested alongside the rest of expression. Susan the nation in the name of George Floyd and Black merely opted to do Lives Matter. And in May 2019, Susan—alongside Shelby— the reverse. began work on an enormous mural of Mother Nature, bringing life and color to a drab, beige train overpass wall. The massive artwork quickly generated buzz and praise, before Spokane’s more “proper” side poked through, leading to a story on KHQ News that warned “don’t be alarmed, there’s much more to be done on new downtown mural” that “might look like it could turn into a pair of nude women.” “We’re not everybody’s cup of tea,” Susan said to the Spokesman-Review shortly after. It turns out, that’s not exactly true. Since beginning her tattoo career full time just over two years ago, Susan has had a constant influx of regular and new customers. In fact, she’s booked well into the fall. She still paints murals. She still does woodworking. She still makes jewelry. She’s busy, and she’s still raising three humans. Her mark on Spokane may have already felt permanent, especially to those looking. But now, in our collective dermal layers, it couldn’t be truer. At least until the ink runs dry. “When I held a tattoo machine for the first time I was like, ‘Oh, all my playing around with different types of art, this was it,’” Susan says. “This is what I want to do. Forever.” JUNE 2021 / BOZZIMEDIA.com

Bring small-scale agritourism to rural

GLENROSE

The rural character of Glenrose may seem like a strange geographic oddity, but it serves an important function in our urban landscape. The Glenrose area in southeast Spokane has long been among the city’s most underappreciated gems. Beyond valuable close-in rural farmland, the area offers significant natural beauty, including miles and miles of hiking and mountain biking trails in the Dishman Hills and Iller Creek Conservation Areas. As someone who grew up in the area before these networks were particularly well-developed, I was blown away when I recently hiked one of the trails and found a well-maintained network with a small parking lot, restrooms, and a recently updated trail map. The system easily competes with many of our local state parks in quality and scale. The rural character of Glenrose may seem like a geographic oddity, but it serves an important function in our urban landscape. Most importantly, it provides a valuable habitat for wildlife, from deer and marmots to birds and moose. Believe it or not, some farming still takes place here. And in cities across the country, the “rural-urban interface” is a critical area in terms of wildfire prevention and the fight against urban sprawl. 24

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

Anthony Gill is an economic development professional, graduate student, and founder of Spokane Rising, an urbanist blog focused on ways to make our city a better place to live.

Case in point: for the past several years, the Glenrose Association, which primarily represents homeowners in the area, has been mired in lawsuits and legal filings over a proposed sports complex planned for the former Morning Star Boys' Ranch property near 37th and Glenrose. Indeed, a sports complex probably isn’t a fit for an area with such a rural character, but residents and neighbors in the area should look to our other rural fringes—and those in other cities—for opportunities to grow a captive audience of advocates and preservationists. For example, could parts of Glenrose be conducive to small-scale urban agriculture like in Greenbluff? Instead of full-on U-Pick apple orchards as a seasonal tourist destination, I picture small-scale berry farms, farm-fresh eggs, maybe a pumpkin patch or Christmas tree farm, and microbreweries in barns. These types of uses would generate far less traffic than a sports complex, respect the rural nature of the area, and contribute to our local food ecosystem without violating the spirit of our growth management rules. What about wine? On the other side of the state, Woodinville has established itself as a wine-tasting destination, with hundreds of tasting rooms and winemaking operations. Could Glenrose offer something similar to the Spokane area? It already has one winery—Winescape Winery—and has the benefit of a natural environment which could probably support an actual vineyard. Even just a few more small tasting rooms or minor winemaking operations would be a big draw for connoisseurs—but not big enough to tax the rural street grid. The boundary between urban and rural has always been a topic of significant consternation and environmental concern. But if Glenrose residents and property owners took just a couple of actions to cement its status as an agricultural area, even on a small scale, the neighborhood could develop a set of advocates beyond its own boundaries and preserve its special identity for years to come.

A

dell Whitehead has made a living serving people. When a regular at the MLK Food Bank became ill from COVID-19 and could no longer retrieve food packages, Adell loaded her car with two weeks’ of food and household items. She delivered them to the family’s doorstep on her own time, including a few chocolates for the family’s young daughter. “Being of service is humbling,” Adell says. “This is where the magic is, right here—it just touches my soul. Providing is what’s meaningful to me.”

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

Before Adell joined the Martin Luther King Jr. Family Outreach Center a few years ago, she worked a corporate job for nearly three decades. Something stirred inside Adell during a work trip to the Philippines, and as she boarded the plane returning to Spokane, she knew change was coming. Adell, originally from California, says she questioned her worldview following this trip. People in the Philippines approached life differently; family and helping one another took precedence over individual gain or success. “That really struck me because I was like, ‘Wait a minute, that’s the way it should be,’” she says. “That’s what makes you a person: How are you living? Are you trying to knock people down to get to the top, or are you reaching down to bring others with you when you get to the top?” Adell no longer argues mundane concerns like who will be taking out the trash, instead focusing her energy on helping others and understanding her effect on them. A year after she returned to Spokane, Adell was laid off. After a period of reflection, she decided to enroll in the Whitworth University's accelerated-format organizational management course in the evenings, all while working a temporary job to pay the bills. Circumstances aligned for Adell when she applied for the MLK Center position after it


reopened in 2018. Located in the East Central Neighborhood— one of the most ethnically diverse areas of the city—the center provides social services and resources to community members. Once hired, the first thing Adell did was reopen the food bank. It had been closed during the holidays, which tend to be the most brutal months for people facing food insecurity, she says. The previous managers had closed everything down, cutting people off from important resources, she says. As the Family Service Support manager, she reopened the Senior Program, WIC, and SNAP offices. The food bank has proved vital in ensuring people have access to food year-round. Access to community resources is essential—especially during the pandemic—when food insecurity rates have nearly doubled. “We’re here not only for our Black community but for all communities," Adell says. "Hunger has no color." The center serves many homeless individuals, and it’s crucial that they receive food they can consume if they don’t have a way to cook it and don’t have cooking utensils or access to tools like can openers—things most people take for granted, she says. “I don’t assume anymore,” Adell says. “I can’t afford to.” Adell says the center’s food bank serves about 400 families every month, which can amount to 1,800 people. Adell makes sure to connect people with the resources they need, whether it's food, information, or help navigating the health or employment

system. “I’m in a position where I can give those resources,” she says. “We can help people who are low-income or have no income while treating them with dignity and respect, letting them know they matter no matter what situation they’re in.” A lot of the work in the food bank revolves around addressing and minimizing the stigma associated with receiving food assistance, she says. Currently, the staff provides boxes full of food they anticipate families will need. However, before the pandemic caused operational changes for community safety, the food bank was laid out to look like a grocery store; people could pick out exactly what they wanted and needed. Adell says they’ll go back to that model as soon as the pandemic is over.

Adell is the type of advocate who works behind the scenes, says Karen Herford, a close friend of Adell’s. She takes the time to get to know the people who go to the center and tailor her approach to their specific needs.   “Serving people is natural for her,” Karen says. “She really enjoys making sure people are taken care of, and it makes her

happy to see others happy, and she doesn't need that accolade.” Adell is like a “little butterfly,” always all over the board helping people in any way she can, whether it’s at the center, in church, or anywhere else, Karen says. If Adell isn’t helping ‘The Golden Girls’—a group of elderly church ladies— she’s taking water to the pastor or keeping an eye on the kids, Herford adds, and no one ever has to ask her to do it. “She doesn’t let her emotions get the best of her—she’s consistent,” Herford says. “The Adell you see today is the same one you’ll see in ten years, and the Adell you see at nine a.m. is the same one you’re gonna see at seven p.m.” Although Adell is as “tough as nails,” Karen says she worries about her friend sometimes because some people readily take advantage of people who have a giving nature. “It's like, everybody's always pulling at them to get their needs met and giving people like Adell are not one to say, ‘Well excuse me, I need my needs met first.’ She's just gonna keep pushing to help everybody else,” Karen says, which is why she pushes her to take time for herself, too. Adell says she learned to stand up for herself at a very young age. She grew up as an only child to her single mother, who always pushed her to be involved in her community and learn from others, she says. As a fourth-generation descendant from slaves, Adell says the wisdom her elders have imparted to her is priceless. “I was always learning from them how to navigate the world as a woman of color and how to stand up for myself,” she says. “So that has always stayed with me.” She tenderly recalls the prominent family gatherings

surrounded by the wisest of people, especially her grandmother, who worked cleaning houses and taught Adell to remain humble and never fall victim to arrogance. “It’s not always the certificate that proves who you are; it’s the work that you do,” Adell says. Even now, though, Adell still struggles to make herself heard, which can be a difficult feat for women and particularly women of color, she says, whose knowledge is taken advantage of. “But I don’t stop talking,” she says. “We need to encourage women to not stop talking, don’t stop doing what you know you can do.”   Roaschel Everette-Wheeler has known Adell for twentythree years and is continually inspired by her longtime friend, whom she considers a sister. “Adell’s a ray of sunshine,” she says. “She’s the kind of person that truly just envelops you.” Roaschel adds that Adell’s commitment to the community comes as no surprise; she’s always making sure everyone around her has what they need. She’s the type of person to get up and do something for someone when she notices they need help. Even amid trying to care for her mother, who’s facing some health issues, she’s managed to continue to make sure people have access to food and other resources at the center and has taken the initiative to get people to vaccination sites, Roaschel says. “She has a heart of gold, truly, and she’s so genuine,” she says. “Adell shares everything she has, including her time, even when she’s mentally and physically worn down—she gives it.”

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (novel) I was excited to read Little Fires Everywhere after reading Ng’s debut novel, Everything I Never Told You. While I’m personally a bigger fan of the former, Little Fires Everywhere is a quick, snappy, dramatic novel with plenty of elements to keep you entertained. The Richardson family lives a quiet, stable life in Shaker Heights, Ohio. That is, until Mia Warren and her daughter, Pearl, come to live in their home, bringing a troublesome past along with them, and threatening the status quo of the Richardson family and the entire neighborhood community. It’s an engaging read that will have you quickly flipping the pages to see what plays out for both families (and the other background families). In Little Fires Everywhere, the mini-series (adapted by Hulu), Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington bring these characters to life in a series that sticks well to the novel’s plot and premise, and both the novel and the series have won a lot of acclaim.

WHEN FRIENDS WHO AREN’T THAT INTO READING ask me for book suggestions, sometimes I recommend books that have film or television

adaptations, giving them the choice of where to start. Personally, I always read the book first, but I know there are a few folks out there who like to start with screens. I’m finding more and more adaptations as we blur the media lines between writing and acting. It’s exciting to watch words come to life, to see if the casting of characters is how you imagined them, and see what creative liberties directors and screenwriters chose in their adaptation. Below is a list of some of my personal recommendations of books and their onscreen counterparts.

We The Animals by Justin Torres (novel) We The Animals is Torres’ debut novel. It is written in very short snippets or vignettes that feel almost like short stories. We The Animals tells the tale of three brothers growing up in New York, loosely based off of the author’s own life and experiences throughout childhood. The children are Puerto Rican and white, and go through the motions of what it means to grow up biracial. The youngest brother, who is unnamed, is the protagonist. He eventually distances himself from his family, seemingly as he begins to explore his own sexual identity that his family does not support. The film version of We The Animals first debuted at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. This tale of the complications of love and family and growing up is often compared to films like Moonlight and Tree of Life, which explore similar themes. It is intimate and devastating, much like the book. During production, the actors playing the children and the parents lived together to really foster a sense of family—to nail down the emotions Torres captures in his book.

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (memoir) I burned through this memoir fast. Walls writes of her troubling childhood, of addiction and family trauma—of a charismatic father who could turn cruel at the flip of the switch, battered by years of alcoholism, and a mother who felt removed from motherhood and domesticity. The dynamic of their parents forced Walls and her siblings to learn how to fend for themselves and provide each other the love that was hard to come by from their parents. Fighting their way from Nevada to New York, The Glass Castle follows the Walls children into adulthood. The film, released in 2017, stars Brie Larsen as Jeannette Walls, with Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson playing the enigmatic parents. The film unravels the story of the Walls mainly through flashbacks. As so much time was spent with the actors and directors studying Walls and her family, the acting feels genuine, authentic, and true to the memoir. The biggest critique of the film is the attempt to humanize and empathize with the parents, who are to most, unforgivable, even in the end. JUNE 2021 / BOZZIMEDIA.com

poetry by Derek Annis

Breaking Here I am again, on the flooded streets in the neighborhood of gray houses. Wind has torn the roofs away, lifted children into trees with branches bare, twisted and splintered like bones. Water fills my boots. Look, there goes Lisa, floating by in her blue Geo Metro, turning the wheel to no avail, brake lights flashing like Christmas. There’s no stopping her. I don’t try. The top floor of my house is engulfed in flame. I save what I can, but can’t find my signed books or any of the kittens. The sky is orange with an absence of birds. Smoke sings to my eyes. The old man across the street retrieves his collection of antique typewriters, the keys torn off and strewn across the lawn below the rising water, and look, there go all his letters, right down the storm drain. I walk up the block to join Justin and his murdering father and the rotting top half of his mother on their porch to drink whisky from tippy cups. Justin’s the same as he always was: eleven years old and perfectly comfy in the cold, watching broken bits of his home go under. We toast my burning house, take turns jumping from the steps just for the splash. Derek Annis is the author of Neighborhood of Gray Houses (Lost Horse Press), the associate director of Willow Springs Books, and the manager of Lynx House Press’ Blue Lynx Prize for Poetry. Their poems have appeared in The Account, Colorado Review, Epiphany, The Gettysburg Review, The Missouri Review Online, Poet Lore, Spillway, and Third Coast, among others. 36

Bobby Enslow, Indaba owner

A Coffee Roaster's

58

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

by Kate Vanskike photos by Luke Kenneally

W

ith coffee start-up company Indaba, Bobby Enslow had the dream of creating community in the economically challenged West Central neighborhood despite no experience either roasting coffee or running a business. And yet, he succeeded—achieving awards, receiving recognition, and continuously adding to his list of retail locations. An inspiring tale, but one that’s been told. Indaba’s story runs deeper than that.


A Path to Healing

“I get really emotional when I talk about it,” says Mary Kay McCollum. She’s speaking of her experience of sexual assault by a fellow Naval officer, whose abuse back in the ’80s left her terrified and isolated for years. But the statement is also true of recalling the first time she walked into the Broadway Indaba location in 2015. This was the year McCollum attended a retreat for veterans to tackle their trauma, where she thankfully met a journalist who helped her secure payment for the suffering caused by a member of the military. After more than three decades of silence, the pain of processing was unbelievably hard, compounded by telling her story to secure disability pay for the years she was unable to work. McCollum was suicidal, and when she entered the coffee shop, she told the owner just that. “When I first talked about PTSD, I was terrified. But Bobby was just so encouraging and supportive,” McCollum says. “His compassion really affected me. He got me on the path to healing. I started writing and talking about it.” Bobby was instrumental in her progress, she says. Every time she returned to Indaba, he remembered her name and asked how she was doing. Six years later, McCollum continues her healing through photography, her relationship with Jesus, and encouraging other women to find their voice. She still finds comfort in good coffee from Spokane roasters, including Indaba. Her favorite is a whole milk latte with no added flavor, so she can savor the coffee. “’Love people, love coffee’,” she quotes the Indaba motto. “That isn’t just something to hang on the wall. [Bobby] really does it.”

Dignity Restored

Phil Hocking, a computer technician

The people—and their stories— are what set Bobby apart from other aspiring business leaders. Meet Mary Kay McCollum, a Navy veteran; Phil Hocking, a computer technician; and Hannah Hicks, a rising business leader. Seemingly on disparate paths yet sharing the same testimony: Indaba’s slogan—Love people, love coffee—is more than pretty words. Bobby lives by it.

As a child, Phillip Hocking had symptoms indicative of autism spectrum disorders that weren’t widely understood at the time, and, without treatment, he suffered from a lack of social skills and friends. After his parents acquired a PC and internet service in 1994, he found a place to belong through computer technology Once, networks. Phillip dropped out of school and I walked in and pursued tech success, and when he was crying and said, scored, he began whittling away his ‘Bobby, could you just earnings on drugs and alcohol. He was good at what he did, but as addiction pray for me, man?’ And took control, he began smoking meth he did. And it was really in the bathroom at work. No longer employable, he became homeless. impactful,despite my For five years, Hocking lived on the mental health issues streets. A church near the Broadway Indaba coffee shop had been operating a and living in active shelter, and when it closed in the mornings, addiction. Hocking made his way across the street where Bobby was still learning to run his first business and not yet making a profit. JUNE 2021 / BOZZIMEDIA.com

Mary Kay McCollum, a Navy veteran

Between that prayer and reading Brené Brown’s “The Power of Vulnerability,” Phillip found an ability to recognize his self-worth. He began helping others, caring for a friend’s family while a member was incarcerated, delivering food and toilet paper to addicts on the street. In 2015, Phillip stopped his drug use, secured a job, and began paying for his coffee. Today, he oversees tech services at Excelsior Wellness Center. “Things that once led to HR involvement or loss of employment now aren’t issues. I don’t have to pretend that I don’t have autism or social issues. My behavioral health is no longer a barrier to my success,” Phillip says. “I’m a homeowner, I’m married, I have a kid. And I have a future.” Phillip is a coffee snob by admission, and proud to say he spends quite a bit of money on coffee. His favorite Indaba drink is the Natatorium—a vanilla caramel latte with cinnamon. “He’s serious about ‘love people, love coffee,’” Phillip says of Bobby. “He was amid his start-up, and dealing with the pressures of someone like me there was a risk. But he put his Christian principles above a business principle. It’s pretty indicative of who the man is.”

Creating a Future

When I first talked about PTSD, I was terrified. But Bobby was just so encouraging and supportive. His compassion really affected me. He got me on the path to healing. I started writing and talking about it. “I basically lived there,” Phillip says. “I was bipolar and having public freak-outs in the shop, and Bobby never asked me to leave.” Bobby gave him day-old cookies and let him wash dishes to earn his coffee. He even played chess with Phillip, establishing a weekly tradition they maintained until pandemic restrictions. “Once, I walked in and was crying and said, ‘Bobby, could you just pray for me, man?’ And he did. And it was really impactful,” Phillip says, “despite my mental health issues and living in active addiction.” 60

Hannah Hicks and her siblings grew up in West Central before the Kendall Yards development was a reality. They were bored high schoolers when Indaba opened in 2009; they hung out at the intriguing new Broadway shop. All the time. “We would trick Bobby into giving us free lattes,” says Hannah. But it was no trick. Bobby turned that “free” coffee into a dishwashing job. One day, Hannah was talking about what to do after school. Bobby had been considering an internship program to teach technical coffee skills to support the growth of specialty roasters in Spokane, and approached Hicks with the opportunity. “I became Bobby’s first intern, spending twenty hours a week learning from him,” Hannah says. After she gained work experience at another business, Enslow


Dr. Kevin A. King DDS PS Dr. Samuel King DDS

asked her to manage the Broadway location, and then another Indaba shop. “Bobby was so intentional about giving me opportunity and really trusting me with it. He sent me to barista camp for certifications; he was constantly investing in me,” she says. Hannah felt she was an active part of Enslow’s dream to create community. She and everyone else on his team were inspired to be family to their regular customers. Just over three years ago, Hicks moved to New York City, where she had multiple job offers and selected one with a local coffee company where she started off as the manager of its busiest location in Manhattan. “I don’t think anything could have prepared me like having worked for Bobby,” she says. “He inspired me to lead people in a way that’s focused on them.” An ambitious young woman in a major metropolitan area, Hannah dreamed big. She applied to Columbia University and was accepted, in part, she says, to Enslow’s impact and recommendation. She became an operations manager, then a senior manager for quality overseeing a business in six cities. “At every stage, Bobby has supported me,” Hannah says. “Yes, he taught me technical skill, but also about business and leadership. And to think it started with washing dishes.” Today, residing in the Big Apple and studying sociology at Columbia, Hannah says she lives off simple drip coffee. She’s still enjoying her favorite blends from Indaba, shipped to her regularly from Spokane, where the people-first motto is alive and well. “It simply blows my mind,” is all Bobby can say. “My little shop in West Central is making a difference.” Learn more about Enslow’s team and their weekly practice of cupping in this month’s “For the Love of Coffee” column, page 122.

Retail therapy all about the hunt

F

or me, retail therapy isn’t just shopping—it’s a treasure hunt. Seeking out that perfect item to finish a look or stumbling across an item that calls to you. Doing this while spending time with someone special—be it my mom, sister, daughter, or close friend—fills my soul. Later on, those pieces serve as a special reminder of time spent. I was routine cleaning when we recently opened our lake cabin for the season. Amid my task, I looked up to see the beautiful bronze fish I picked up when my mom and I were shopping at a secondhand store. We were having a girls’ weekend in Portland, and the ladies convinced me I couldn’t let the fish get away. Now, every time I look at that piece, I remember that day with my mom. Little did I know just how much the memory of that day would mean to me later… and incidentally, she was right; I have not seen anything like it since. Jacki Reed and I have been exercising this muscle together for years. Now, it consists of ordering lunch, pouring a glass of wine, and shopping our own store, Savvy Home. The process remains the same—we chat about our families, houses, and business. Recently, I picked up a few pillows, a throw blanket, and a rustic wooden tray. But the crowning was a rustic teak bunching table from a favorite vendor. Anyone can order up a room full of items and put them together from a picture; the true essence of creating your own space is the unique treasure you stumble upon while spending time with those you love.

really like a home that feels comfortable,” says Jessica Davis, sitting in the great room of her charming Spokane Valley renovation. “I love a home that feels inviting.” Those feelings pervade the fivebedroom, five-bath home situated on a serene property located in earshot of Arbor Crest winery. It’s always been a remarkable location, but in the recent past the home itself has been completely transformed. It was first purchased about a decade ago by Jessica’s husband, Mike, when he was a bachelor. As time went on, they thought about what they’d like to see it become, making a mental list of priorities.

The renovation more than doubled the home’s square footage and took care of all of the musts on their list, which included a laundry room near the primary suite, a bedroom for each of the couple’s three children—eight-year-old Charlie, six-year-old Beau, and two-and-a-half-year-old Avery—and an ADA guest suite 86

for out-of-town visitors. The couple hired Rippy Homes as the contractor; Jessica was the interior designer and Mike was the project’s electrical contractor. Rippy was ideal to work with, Jessica says. “You truly can get as custom as you want with them.” The renovation involved taking out all of the interior walls,

In the primary suite, the bed is centered on a feature wall of soft green shiplap.

Chiropractic care can lead to improved mobility and pain-free workouts

M

ost of us have been counting down the days until we can enjoy being outside again. With gym closures, we haven’t been able to keep up with our regular workout routine and working at home and bingewatching television has put our bodies into all kinds of torturous positions. Jumping up and going for a jog or bike ride—or even doing a little gardening— can lead to injuries if we don’t first prepare our bodies to perform at their fullest. According to Mike Valente, from Valente Chiropractic, if the body is not prepared for the sudden increase in activity, one can develop strains and sprains that involve soft tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. As a former athlete, Valente knows the importance of stretching exercises, whether before a workout or just to get your blood flowing in the morning. Stretching can help lower the risk of injury and improve your overall wellbeing.

Without being prepared, even an easygoing workout can lead to fatigue and soreness in the following days. It’s common to accumulate aches and pains, especially as you get older, but they don’t have to be permanent. As Valente points out, when the joints of the spine are not moving as they should, it can cause pain in other parts of the body. Unfortunately, by the time the pain presents itself, the damage has already been done. “The way you get nutrients into your joints and discs and pump out toxins is through movement,” Valente says. “We have massage therapists that loosen up soft tissue, and then I work on the spinal structure to get joints moving properly.” Utilizing early chiropractic care should be a regular addition to your fitness regimen. A skilled chiropractor like Valente, with more than twenty years experience, can advise you on how to properly move and stretch so that you are less likely to injure yourself. Valente takes a whole-body approach which can not only relieve that so called pain in the neck (or back), but also help alleviate debilitating conditions such as vertigo and plantar fasciitis (irritation of the arch of the foot due to excessive strain). “I ask patients to let me make four or five adjustments, so I can address their specific needs, and then have them come in monthly for maintenance,” Valente says. “The catastrophes that cause pain and mobility issues rarely occur if you get adjusted before the symptoms present themselves.”

Some general considerations for at-home workouts: 1. Warm up and dynamically stretch prior to starting a workout, making sure your body is adequately prepared for exercise helps reduce injury and soreness. 2. Choose movements that make sense for your body, activity level, and available equipment and space, but aim to choose movements that work multiple musclegroups and a combination of cardio and strength. 3. Get creative—safely—with your equipment. a) Plastic milk jugs filled with water, bags of kitty litter, your toddler, or a backpack filled with books can be used as weights if you don’t own a kettlebell or dumbbells. b) A park bench or sturdy chair can be used to step or hop up onto. 4. Write down your planned workout before you start. Grab a piece of scratch paper and jot down each movement and your chosen workout length. 5. YouTube is a great resource for finding videos of correct form for movements that you’re unsure about or want to review. 6. Respect your body’s cues! a) Give yourself rest breaks. b) If a movement doesn’t feel good today, switch it out for something that better suits what your body needs.

Equipment Needed

Examples

● Scratch paper or white board to write out your plan ● Clock or timer  ● Yoga mat (optional, but nice for any floor movements)

The Process 1. Identify five movements (order them in a way that makes transitioning between them easy). 2. Set your timer for seventeen minutes. a) Minute one: movement one b) Minute two: movement two c) Minute three: movement three d) Minute four: movement four e) Minute five: movement five f) Minute six: rest g) Repeat a-f twice

2: Grab Your Weights • Minute one: kettlebell/dumbbell swings • Minute two: lunges • Minute three: shoulder press • Minute four: squats • Minute five: burpees Challenge: hold onto your weights for minute two and four. 3: Box/Bench Fun • Minute one: step-ups • Minute two: tricep dips • Minute three: sit-ups • Minute four: mountain climbers • Minute five: toe-taps to the top or side of the bench

Welcome back to elementary school PE! Start standing, then drop into a low squat position with your hands on the ground, inside your feet. Jump your feet back into a plank position.

Grilling season is here, and with world travel still off the table for the time being, you

can bring the world to your grill with the one the Philippines' favorite street foods, BBQ Pork Skewers. What is Filipino food? With over 7,000 islands and 300+ years of Spanish influence, that’s a hard thing to nail down. Even popular dishes, like pancit and lumpia, have different renditions depending on the source. Filipino flavor is salty, sour, garlic, black pepper heavy, and slightly sweet and extra saucy—and these skewers hit every note. The skewers surprisingly easy to create after a quick trip to an Asian grocery store (Lieng and Phane Oriental Market off of Sprague in the valley have everything you need).

Filipino Flavors Explained Banana Ketchup It’s exactly what it sounds like—ketchup made from bananas. As weird as that sounds, it’s a great substitute for tomato ketchup. A bit sweeter and much less acidic, banana ketchup works wonderfully for marinades, dipping sauce, and even on a hotdog. Coconut Vinegar This slightly cloudy vinegar is the base to adobo and dipping sauces because it has a lower acidity level

than white vinegar, with a touch of earthy sweetness derived from the unsweetened coconut. Calamansi Juice These little citruses are green on the outside and orange on the inside, with a taste similar to a Meyer lemon. It’s often used as a finishing flavor similar to limes on a taco, but with a sweet acidity that balances the salty, fatty greatness from grilled meats. You can find it frozen or in a delicious drink.


Filipino BBQ pork skewers with sawawan dipping sauce Yield: six servings Pork marinade • 3 lbs pork shoulder, cubed in oneinch cuts, ready to skewer • 3 cloves of garlic, minced • 1/2 cup soy sauce • 1/4 cup calamansi juice (fresh or frozen) or substitute fresh lemon juice • 1/2 cup banana ketchup   • 8 oz lemon lime soda • 1/2 cup brown sugar • 1 tsp salt • 1 tsp black pepper • 12 to 14 pieces bamboo skewers pre-soaked for twenty minutes  

BBQ sauce

• ½ cup banana ketchup • ¼ cup soy sauce  • 1 tbsp sugar  

Sawawan dipping sauce • 1 cup coconut vinegar/ Filipino vinegar   • 1/2 large red onion, small diced/ minced  • 3 cloves garlic, minced  • 1 tbsp black peppercorn • 1 serrano chili, sliced • 1/2 habanero pepper, seeded (optional)  • 1 tbsp sugar • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Pork 1. In a large bowl or plastic resealable bag make the marinade by adding everything and mixing it well. Cover or seal and marinate a minimum of three hours but best if you marinate overnight. 2. If using bamboo skewers, soak for thirty minutes before skewering the pork, discarding the marinade once all pork is skewered. 3. In a small bowl, mix together the BBQ sauce and have ready

with a grilling brush before heading out to the grill (you can also bake these until cooked 2/3 of the way through before finishing under the broiler when it comes time to brush the BBQ sauce on to mimic that tacky goodness you’d get from the grill). 4. Preheat your grill so it’s a nice medium-high temperature (I use charcoal) and grease your grill before setting the skewers down. Don’t walk away because with all the sugar in the marinade, it has a bigger chance of burning. 5. Flip, making sure each side gets great grill marks until 2/3 way cooked or internal temp at about 100 degrees. Brush the BBQ sauce and continue to turn and brush until every bit of the pork is covered and the internal temp reaches 145 degrees. Pull off the grill and serve family-style with sawawan dipping sauce and garlic rice.

Sawawan dipping sauce Add everything into a bowl or jar and refrigerate at least overnight. This sauce is best made a few days in advance, but if you make it at the same time as the marinade, it’ll be perfect. Less spicy: Since I have kiddos who are not huge fans of spice, I remove the seeds from the peppers, and I leave the habanero halved in the sauce. More heat: If you want it with more of a kick, keep the seeds, mince the peppers, crush the black pepper, and add another serrano and/or another half of the habanero. JUNE 2021 / BOZZIMEDIA.com

Spring in the Inland Northwest Rolls by LINC Foods | The Local Inland Northwest Cooperative lincfoods.com

Fresh spring rolls use rice paper to draw together the flavors of vegetables, herbs, rice noodles, and dipping sauce. With a nod to traditional Vietnamese spring rolls made with lettuce and shrimp, these Spring in the Inland Northwest Rolls pack in the array of fresh produce available from local farms during this season of sprouting and blooming. Construct and roll up their crisp and bright ingredients with friends or as an activity with kids! Switch up the flavors in these rolls with other in-season produce from farmers’ markets, farm stands, or the online LINC Market (lincfoods.com). Try green onions, basil, cilantro, mint, cabbage, or lettuce. Add slices of jalapeño for a touch of heat. We included edible flowers for an extra layer of beauty.

Spring Roll Ingredients: 1 package of organic tofu, pressed 1 tbsp cornstarch 1 tbsp olive oil ½ package of rice noodles 1 tsp sesame oil 1 cucumber from Elithorp Farm 3 small carrots from Courage to Grow Farms

120

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

3 radishes from Vinegar Flats Farm 3 salad turnips from Peak of Abundance Farm 1 lime ½ package of radish microgreens from Full Bushel Farm 9-12 sheets of rice paper (spring roll wrappers)

Peanut Sauce Ingredients: 1 garlic scape from Channing Farm (we used 1 garlic clove) ½ cup peanut butter 2 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp rice vinegar 2 tbsp honey from Greenbluff Honey Farm 2 tbsp water 1 tbsp sesame oil ¼ tsp ginger powder


Process: 1. Heat the oven and a baking sheet to 425 degrees. Slice the tofu into long strips, roughly half an inch wide. Sprinkle with corn starch, mixing to ensure the tofu strips are covered. Drizzle olive oil on the hot baking sheet and spread out tofu so the pieces aren’t touching each other. Cook for half an hour or until golden brown, flipping the tofu halfway through. 2. Meanwhile, prepare the rice noodles according to package directions. Rinse under cold water and drizzle with sesame oil. 3. Slice the cucumber and carrots into long matchsticks and the radishes and turnips into thin slices. Quarter the lime. 4. Finely chop the garlic scape and whisk together the peanut sauce ingredients. 5. Warm roughly one inch of water in a wide pan. Dip a sheet of rice paper into the warm water until covered, for just a few seconds. Place the damp rice paper on a tea towel and begin placing the veggies, microgreens, tofu, peanut sauce, a squeeze of lime, and rice noodles in the center of the paper. 6. Fold in the right and left sides of the rice paper so they overlap and stick together in the center. Fold over the top and bottom edges to enclose the roll. 7. Repeat steps 5 and 6, using up the spring roll ingredients. Eat fresh with additional peanut sauce and lime!

The Camaraderie of Cupping Around the perimeter of the wooden table were ten plastic cups, each with a

number noted on a white piece of paper. In the center, a couple of water cups with spoons, and five shot glasses, one for each of us who would join in cupping. It’s a weekly occurrence for the Indaba roasting staff, and I was invited to partake. As we chatted, owner Bobby Enslow ground beans from ten distinct coffee varieties, and placed a sampling into the ten cups. We rounded the table slowly, each of us inhaling deeply, picking up specific characteristics, then moving on until we’d filled our nostrils with the aromas of each cup. The crew, of course, was prolific in identifying the slightest trace of fruit or a scent affiliated with a country of origin. “Pomegranate,” said Sarah Wellenbrock. “Raspberry La Croix,” said Josh Adrian. On and on they went. Cedar. Fajitas. Raisin. Beef broth. Nougat. Kombucha. Cocoa Puffs. A novice, I was ashamed that a writer who loves coffee struggled to find better adjectives than “mild” and “bold” in my head. It was a proud moment when I said, “I’m picking up hints of alcohol in #2” and Josh later validated it, explaining that #2 was Rwandan coffee from fermented beans. After two more rounds for tasting, I jotted in my notebook, numbers three, four, six, eight, and ten as favorites. When Bobby revealed the names of each coffee in our blind test, it was no surprise, these were Sumatra, High Drive, Bowl & Pitcher, and Lilac City—selections I’d bought from Indaba off and on for a few years.

The Science of Coffee

Today it’s easy to find videos demonstrating virtually every method and aspect of coffee service. But they were slim in 2009 when Bobby was starting his business, so he learned from industry leaders in the Pacific Northwest—like DOMA, a Post Falls wholesaler, and Stumptown Roasters in Portland. He also purchased a service from Facsimile, which provides blind samples for experimental purposes. Everything about coffee production is an experiment, he says. You learn which cups hold a consistent temperature, what percentage of coffee to extract for its full potential, the time a specific selection should roast and on what setting. You test the moisture and color, not just with the eye but with digital scans that provide precise analysis.

Bobby says, “You have to be humble. You’ll never know it all. Just learn to enjoy it.” The complexity is why he fell in love with coffee. “I love the academic part—the constant learning.” He supports ongoing education for staff members, too. Everyone who wants to roast must complete a related certification from Barista Hustle, and then any additional certifications they wish to pursue on their own will yield them a pay raise. From my brief experience with the cupping team, it was clear that the learning was not the only perk (pun intended). “What I love most about cupping is our team collaboration in perfecting our quality control,” says Sarah. We’re always trying to determine how our coffee could be better, and in the process, it’s elevating our team.” That synergy was apparent. Josh, perched on a stool, had the clipboard and a detailed chart for scoring ten attributes of each sample, from aroma, texture, and flavor, to acidity, sweetness, and aftertaste. Sarah and Crystal Walton called out their observations at each stage and Josh handled the scoring.

A Shift in Focus

Bobby built the same humility he first embraced in learning the science into his motto and business philosophy. In the first decade, “Simply Great Coffee” reflected his passion for quality. But entering the next era, Bobby wanted to focus on the reason he opened his first shop in the economically challenged West Central neighborhood: he cared about creating and fostering community. The new Indaba motto—now plastered on mugs, posters, and stickers—is “Love People, Love Coffee.” And Bobby only hires team members who understand that putting people first is non-negotiable, no matter how great a person’s coffee-making knowledge and skills are. A few Indaba customers have shared their very personal stories of the ways a humble little coffee shop on West Broadway changed their lives. (See “A Coffee Roaster’s Lifegiving Motto,” on page 58.)

GONE WITH THE SCHWINN

YEAH. YEAH. This isn’t Craigslist. I realize

that. On the other hand… Today only, I’m accepting offers on the flashy red ten-speed bicycle that I bought in 1979. (Make your bids by emailing dougclarksville@gmail.com. Payment in gold, firearms, or cryptocurrency accepted.) Don’t turn up your nose at the advanced age of my two-wheeled steed. Or the paucity of gears. My bike is a Schwinn Paramount, a handbuilt P-13 Road Racer that was top of the line in its day.

128

BOZZIMEDIA.com / JUNE 2021

I know. Modern bicycles now come with gobs of gears, comfy seat cushions, and latte makers, for all I know. Think of my bike as classic cool, like the Mustang GT that Steve McQueen terrorized San Francisco in Bullitt. In near-mint condition, my twenty-threepound Paramount still runs like a fleeing felon. And trust me when I say that I would never consider parting with such a personal precious keepsake if the damn thing hadn’t tried TO MURDER ME! My bad for getting caught up in all the “let’s go biking” hoo-haw sweeping postpandemic America.

I’ll regale you momentarily with my neardeath experience. But first, saddle up for a time trek some forty years and 6,000-odd pizzas into the past. I was a mean, lean cycling geek back then. I lived to bike, rode 100-mile “century” rides and devoured biking magazines for the latest on derailleur adjustment. My pal Bubby Frank and I once pedaled all the way from Coeur d’Alene to Troy, Mont. In one day! But all that doesn’t explain how an underpaid newspaper editor with a family could come up with 900 bucks for a bicycle. (Not to be overly nostalgic, but that’s $3,283.60 in the deflated dough of today.) Weirdly enough, I must give credit to my former Print Overlord: Duane B. Hagadone, the bazillionaire hospitality, real estate and media mogul who died last April at age eighty-eight. I worked at the Dewey-owned Coeur d’Alene Press for seven years, beginning as sports editor in 1976. Then I wormed my way up the Weasel Ladder to become managing editor. Until the spring of 1983, that is, when I migrated thirty-five-miles west to write three columns a week for my hometown paper, The Spokesman-Review. But getting back to 1979, this was a windfall year thanks to the Hagadoneowned (and now defunct) Elizabeth Daily Journal. Upset over a plethora of issues long-forgotten, disgruntled staffers took a strike vote and hit the bricks. Hagadone responded by sending minions from his other rags to keep New Jersey’s oldest newspaper operating. I know what you’re thinking. And the answer is NO. Clarksville did NOT go to New Jersey as a lowly “Scab.” I was already an editor. In that case, “Management Goon” is the correct insult in defamatory labor parlance. I could write several columns about my role as interim police reporter for a strikehobbled newspaper. Take the story I unearthed during one of my daily scavenges through the police

blotter. It centered around some so-called priest who had apparently been giving erotic communion to a married parishioner. Upon finding out, the jilted spouse stormed the church in an enraged state. Huge mistake. The priest reportedly grabbed a kindling hatchet and chopped hubby into bloody tinder. I’ll admit I was pretty jacked when I returned to the Journal newsroom with visions of garish New York Post-style banner headlines dancing through my mind. (“Carousing Cleric Cuffed for Holy Hatchet Job!”) I excitedly told City Editor “Buddy D” about the salacious tale I intended to spin. And I’ll never forget those six words of wisdom he imparted. “We don’t write about The Church.” Welcome to Joisey! The good news is that my Goon Time came with double-pay. I ordered the Paramount and I’ll never forget the moment this red-and-chrome vision arrived. Didn’t know it at the time, but this was one of the last Paramounts to come out of the iconic Chicago Schwinn factory before labor woes and business blunders sent the famous brand into a tailspin. Getting my dream gig in Spokane put a crimp my biking. I was always too busy chasing down the next yarn, arranging interviews, and writing for deadline after deadline after... Rode the Paramount to work a few times. Then it went into storage. And the decades rolled by. Until the other day, when I became inspired by current events. “Cycling appears to have become the outdoors activity of choice for many Americans amid nationwide shutdowns from the coronavirus pandemic, as evidenced by the surge in bike sales in recent months,” stated a CBS report. With everybody wasting away in Quarantinaville, bikes started becoming as scarce as early Covid Charmin rolls. “Basic adult bicycles, known in the industry as ‘leisure’ bicycles,” the report continued, “have seen double and tripledigit sales increases…”

I discovered this when I hauled my Paramount to a bike shop to get its agedeflated tires refilled. Which quashed my idea to buy a more sedate, ass-friendly cruiser style of bike. Explaining that I hadn’t been on my Paramount since the early 1990’s, I asked Bike Shop Guy if he could give me any insight before I got back on the saddle. “Well, it’s kinda like riding a bike,” he said dryly. “Once you learn, you …” Okay. I deserved that. So, back home I slipped on my stiff-soled cycle shoes, strapped on my red helmet, and set off to reacquaint myself with Old Red. Delusion. It really is the strongest drug. Looking back, it probably wasn’t the brightest idea to take my reunion ride on a country highway during rush hour. Or without my clip-on rearview mirror, which I couldn’t locate. But I was too lost in my memories to worry about the pluses of having actual hindsight on the mechanized doom that would be speeding up my backside. After all, I told myself, I was once a competent cyclist. So what if Clinton was president at the time? And so what if I’ve grown old and fat and now pedal with two fake implanted knees? How much difference could it be? Quite a bit, I quickly realized. Working from the fog of memory, I pushed the bike forward while sliding my left foot into the toe clip at the same time swinging my right leg over the high seat post and down onto the other pedal. The trick, which takes practice, is to smoothly insert the right foot into the other toe clip with a quick spin of the pedal. Which, of course, didn’t happen. While I managed to reach the other pedal, I couldn’t insert my shoe. Kept spinning and missing and spinning and missing. Meanwhile, the bike took off coasting downhill at an ever-increasing speed. Hmm. The highway was apparently on a slight slope, which, of course, I hadn’t bothered to notice. So, picture me going downhill faster and faster while trying to A. flip my right shoe

into the toe clip and B. stay as upright as possible while gripping the top of the highly uncomfortable drop-style handlebars, which are made for younger, thinner riders. Oh, did I mention the wobble? Turns out, you actually can forget how to ride a bike. At least one with skinny high-pressure tires. It was like all those years with it never existed as I wobbled along like a six-year-old’s first ride sans training wheels. The sheer terror I experienced took my mind off the scrotal discomfort caused by the narrow leather Brooks saddle. Scrotal Discomfort, now that I mention it, would be a great name for a punk band. Don’t Fall. Don’t Fall. Don’t Fall. Those two words became my internal mantra as I tried to keep my bike as close to the white shoulder line as possible. I can only imagine the conversations going on in the trucks, cars, and school buses that “whooshed” past me. “Oh, look at the poor man.” “Think he’s having a stroke?” “Do his caretakers know he’s escaped?” My goal now was not to ride the bike. My goal was to not wobble into traffic and become grill du jour. At 37th and Glenrose, I managed to, well, the word “dismount” is too reminiscent of an Olympic pommel horse event. My exit was more like your drunk brother-in-law stumbling off a porch. But I managed to stay semi-upright and avoid the humiliation of possibly becoming a meme. Waiting for the traffic to subside, I walked my bike across Glenrose to try again on a quieter side street. The fact that you loyal readers have made it this far should tell you that I didn’t die, which I’m counting as a moral victory. Four similarly inept dismounts and one long walk/roll up a hill led me to a park bench, just two miles from my front door. “Bring the truck,” I gasped when my lovely wife, Sherry, answered her iPhone. “I think my bike racing days are over.” JUNE 2021 / BOZZIMEDIA.com
