the parks are closed, but they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily come and spend it in Santa Cruz.â&#x20AC;?

Federal Dollars at Risk But regardless of how serious the economic impacts of park closures will be on Santa Cruz County, they may be downright illegal. The Land and Water Conservation Fund, created by President Lyndon Johnson in 1965, has granted the state of California $286 million to spend on public parks. The fund stipulates, however, that all parks maintained through the use of such federal money must remain open to the public â&#x20AC;&#x153;in perpetuity.â&#x20AC;? Local parks assisted through the fund over the years include Big Basin Redwoods, Portola Redwoods, Castle Rock, Henry Cowell Redwoods and a handful of others. In a June 8 letter to Schwarzenegger, the National Park Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pacific Regional Director John Jarvis warned that

closing state parks funded by the Land and Water Conservation Fund would be a breach of the law and that when the parks reopen, they could lose future federal support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to remind ourselves that protecting a place â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in perpetuityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in perpetuity,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Traci Verardo-Torres, vicepresident of government affairs with the California State Parks Foundation, an organization in Sacramento. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they shut these parks down, the state would be absolutely out of compliance to the agreement that they came to when they took the money.â&#x20AC;? In the Legislature, the issue is about as partisan as issues get, as revealed when the State Park Access Passâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which

would cost state residents just $1.25 per month through to keep all parks operatingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;failed to get the support it needed. Such a fund would generate $363 million every year for California state parks, easily making up for the $143 million general fund dollars which the governor plans to divert from state parks in the next two years. Although Gov. Schwarzenegger â&#x20AC;&#x153;is open to creative measuresâ&#x20AC;? by local governments that could generate revenue to pay for nearby park operations, according to spokeswoman Lisa Page, he has already vowed to veto the State Park Access Pass.

Sloppy Planning Palmer says that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general fund is projected to grow to $101 billion by next year if the budget is not rewritten. A new budget will â&#x20AC;&#x153;hopefullyâ&#x20AC;? be drafted before the end of the month, says Palmer, one that would chop out nearly $20 billion from the general fund, leaving $82 billion. All state park funds will be liquidated. This plan, says Palmer, will leave open 59 parks that either generate their own revenue through on-site concessions or are paid for from special

How this will affect beach access remains uncertain, but in a county where 50 percent of the coast is public state property, the park closures could devastate tourism and recreation. Meanwhile, state parks occupy onefifth of Santa Cruz Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll basically be closing the county,â&#x20AC;? warns Wildera, who adds that the budget cuts ref lect sloppy planning in Sacramento. By contrast, he says, the state park system is extremely well run.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking a well run system and shutting it down because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have their own act togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Sacramento officials] are taking a well-managed system and shutting it down because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have their own act together. The state parks are very efficient. In Santa Cruz County, you have 134 employees managing 20 percent of the land.â&#x20AC;? The current state parks onslaught is not the first such threat. In January 2008, the governor threatened to close 48 state parks for a monetary savings of $13 million. Through an aggressive â&#x20AC;&#x153;save our parks campaign,â&#x20AC;? the California State Parks Foundation averted the proposalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but only temporarily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When this issue came around again, frankly, it was staggering,â&#x20AC;? says Verardo-Torres, who helped lead the campaign against the 2008 attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people need to know and realize that this is a very real proposal.â&#x20AC;? With the State Park Access Pass all but doomed, park advocates are hoping for a surprise budget allotment in the general fund. Otherwise, closures could begin as soon as Septemberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;regardless of legality or economic sense. 0

Methyl Madness Trading one bad strawberry pesticide for another 0G9/B:G<16

I

F GOV. Schwarzenegger caves to political pressure, a new pesticide called methyl iodide could replace methyl bromide as the primary pest-fighter used by strawberry farmers. This might come as some relief to environmentalists whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been pushing the phaseout of the ozone-depleting methyl bromide. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a catch: its would-be replacement is a highly volatile carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent. And activists fear that California will see a replay of the 2007 Bush administration decision to approve methyl iodide before hearing what the scientific community said first. According to activists, the pesticide industry has been pressuring the governor to speed up the approval process so the new pesticide will be available for the next fumigation cycle, which starts in August. Sources expect the governor to make a decision within a few weeks. The fumigant up for approval is Midas, the commercial form of methyl iodide and chloropicrin produced by the company Arysta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are circumventing the scientific process,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Susan Kegley, a consulting chemist for the Pesticide Action Network, explaining that while the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Pesticide Regulation ordinarily runs its own tests before approval, this time the decision might be made before the Scientific Review Panel reviews the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk assessment draft. Kegley says the environmental costs associated with methyl iodide are largely unknown; the EPA has yet to do an environmental study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The effect that methyl iodide has on field mice and birds that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out of the way is yet to be determined,â&#x20AC;? she says. Methyl iodideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health effects are better understoodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not good. The draft of the DPRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk assessment reports in bureaucratese that methyl iodide increases the incidence of cancer, miscarriages and thyroid disease. Kegley, meanwhile, observes that scientists use the utmost care when testing it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Methyl iodide is so toxic that scientists working with it in the laboratory take extreme caution when handling it, using a ventilation hood, gloves and special equipment for transferring it so it does

not escape to the air,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding that workers would breathe 100 times the dose found acceptable by state lawâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and without the protection a lab provides. However, it is not just the fieldworkersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health that is at stake. People in surrounding areas would receive amounts higher than the DPRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptable dose, says Kegley, noting that federal scientists, when they accepted the pesticide, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for the prevailing winds throughout much of California. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did not take into serious consideration the people living downwind of the areas,â&#x20AC;? she says. Finally, even though methyl iodide is placed in the soil, it could leach into the groundwater. To Paul Towers, state director of Pesticide Watch, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a matter of leaping from the frying pan into the fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a society we should collectively be moving toward safer practices. New York has taken the lead and rejected methyl iodide as a pesticide,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In theory, only the applicators are exposed to pesticides. [But] methyl iodide poses even more potential threats than methyl bromide.â&#x20AC;? To most of us, there would be little discernible difference between the strawberry farmers of Santa Cruz County using methyl bromide and methyl iodide. From the road, passers-by would see the same tarps over the fields that are used for methyl bromide fumigation. The two products work in much the same way. Brett Melone, executive director of Agriculture & Land-Based Training Association (ALBA), explains how. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Methyl iodide kills everything in the soil before planting begins,â&#x20AC;? he says, adding that all soil fumigants sterilize the planting area, killing everything from fungi to nematodes. He also says there are safer ways to fight pests and disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about managing the soil,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More to the point, it is entirely unnecessary, as sustainable and organic farming systems are available now. ALBA has trained hundreds of farmers to grow foodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including strawberriesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; without chemicals in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties. Most of the farmers ALBA works with are former farmworkers seeking a healthier environment to grow food.â&#x20AC;? 0

/D/<B5/@23 Daniel Silvernail practices his fencing footwork at the Salle Santa Cruz.

Foil Barons

Good fencers make good neighbors at Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s club for swordplay 0G9/B:G<16

T

HE CLASH of steel and the patter and squeak of athletic shoes fill the Waldorf High School gym. People wearing white and full of energy dance forward and backward, trying to catch their opponents off guard or waiting for the most opportune moment to attack. A beeping sound accompanied by a red or green light on the scoring machine resting on a chair identifies the winner of the point, or touchĂŠ. Fencing has been a big part of my life for a while now, so discovering a club is like joining a new family. Everywhere that I have been I have found a fun, comfortable and all-inclusive group of people. Salle Santa Cruz has been around 20 years and is no exception. Whether actively competing or just there for exercise,

everyone leaps at the opportunity to meet someone new and test her mettle. The club fences only foil and epee (pronounced ay-PAY), which descend from the dueling days of old. People fenced foil to train for duels to the death, so only the torso, where many important bodily functions take place, is a valid target. Epee was the dueling weapon and was used for duels to first blood, so the entire body is fair game, including the mask, fingers and toes. Derived from cavalry fighting on horseback, saberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the event of Mariel Zagunis, the only American to win an Olympic gold in fencingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;involves a slashing weapon and targets only the waist and above. Today, the blades have been modernized and points are scored with electronic equipment. In the cases of foil and epee, a spring-loaded button and

wires tell the scoring box who got a touch. And contrary to the performance of Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride, bouts are fenced forward and backward on a piste, or strip, 2 by 14 meters in size. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was always a fan of the swashbuckling movies,â&#x20AC;? says coach Kevin Osborn with a grin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad used to coach. He taught my friend and me finger fencing and some of the basics. I really started up when I got to Humboldt State.â&#x20AC;? As a different form of meditation, fencing has been a part of his life throughout the 30 years since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about anything else when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fencing,â&#x20AC;? says Osborn, who fenced on the national circuit until a couple of years ago. A couple of months ago the club chipped in to buy new floors for the gym, which is housed in the Garfield Park church on Errett Circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a group effort between the club, church and a couple of group and sports teams that use the same floor space,â&#x20AC;? says Robin Phillips. My first night at the club, he offered me a foil lesson, which I politely declined as I am an avid epeeist. He started fencing at Texas Tech in 1983 when he saw a sign that said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reach out and touchĂŠ someone.â&#x20AC;? Phillips drives up from Monterey two to three times a week to fence at the Waldorf gym. Four fencing strips are painted in green

on the floor, mixed in with the lines for basketball and volleyball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We painted them ourselves,â&#x20AC;? says Paul Mietz Egli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of what is done with the club is done by volunteers.â&#x20AC;? Mietz Egli, who works as a software engineer by day, started fencing five years ago in San Jose and is currently the club president and director of the Boardwalk Open tournament held each April. It attracts over 100 fencers from all over the West Coast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agility and poise,â&#x20AC;? says tango dancer Daniel Silvernail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the crossover between dance and fencing. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m off balance, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have point control.â&#x20AC;? Silvernail started fencing saber on the Cal State Northridge team in 1976. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed an elective, and it looked interesting on the course list,â&#x20AC;? he says bashfully. Although Silvernail took a break from fencing after college, he started back up again five years ago. Architect by day, fencer and tango dancer by night. What is one thing dancers have over fencers? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They smell nicer,â&#x20AC;? laughs Silvernail. After footwork, while Osborn gives lessons to those who ask, the rest of the fencers get ready to bout. The club sets up two electronic scoring machines and fences on two of the four strips at a time. Sometimes students from the UCSC club come down for extra practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to surprise the students when they come down and see a bunch of old guys fencing. We kick the daylights out of them,â&#x20AC;? Bob Bailey says proudly. Bailey started fencing in college 45 years ago to meet girls and was very successfulâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he met his wife at a tournament. Osborn plans to begin group classes again toward the end of August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to start up new adult and juniors classes,â&#x20AC;? he says. What do they have to say about fencing with beginners? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fence everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only way to learn,â&#x20AC;? Mietz Egli says. En garde. Ready. Fence! Someone pressures his opponent gradually toward the end of the strip. If both feet go off the end, his opponent gets a free point so he fights back. Fencing shoes squeak and make an irregular sound pattern on the floorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;changing up footwork. A dull metallic thump sounds as someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tip solidly smacks the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bell guard. A backhand flies out behind for balance with a long, fast lunge. Halt. Touch right. Who knows? The next Inigo Montoya or Mariel Zagunis might be from Salle Santa Cruz. 0

Down by the River

Continued from page 1

along a stretch of the levee parallel to Bridge Street on the southeast side of town. The diesel growl of a John Deere 444H wheel loader alternately grew louder and softer as it prowled down along the riverside, almost out of sight, then back up again, f lattening the bright green grass in its path and ferrying bucket after bucket of dusty furniture to a Dumpster in the River Park parking lot. A team of yellowvested city workers hiked in after it with brooms and garbage cans. From a gravel path frequented by joggers and dog walkers a small gathering of bleary-eyed men watched, their hands and faces tanned dark. One of them, a man in a battered cowboy hat who said his name was Jaime, could speak a little English. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We

never want any problems,â&#x20AC;? he said in a thick accent, the blue smoke from the decimated campsitesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fires still hazing the air behind him. But after eight years of living here, he acknowledged that problems, like your entire house being carted away, happen all the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got a lot of problems,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This life is no life.â&#x20AC;?

A

WEEK earlier, Officer Henry Robles of the Watsonville Police Department climbed aboard a two-seat dieselpowered Kubota utility vehicle and drove the short distance from the Union Street police headquarters to the river levee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here 19 years, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember how many times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done this,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to say exactly when the first migrant worker built a camp on the river, but most people, like Watsonville Police Chief Terry Medina, guess that the encampments started in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s and were at one time temporary camps for indigent migrant workers just arrived from Mexico. But the camps have changed. The little shelters sprang up and, as men and women began staying there year-round, became more numerous and elaborate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of evolved. There used to be more people that worked in agriculture, now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot less,â&#x20AC;? Medina says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know exactly how to explain this. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not like the homeless people in Santa Cruz. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not an in-your-face kind of panhandler. They drink and kind of hang out. They want to be left alone.â&#x20AC;?

But the city figures it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really leave them alone, so a few times a year it dispatches an officer into the camps. This time it was Roblesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; turn. The Kubota rumbled down from the running path and into the 3-feet-high grass, sending birds leaping into the air. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A dead giveaway,â&#x20AC;? said Robles as the vehicle lurched dangerously over the uneven ground, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is these footpaths. See the smoke?â&#x20AC;? Crashing through the brush, the Kubota found its way to the smooth, well-worn footpath leading down into the riverbed. Two men came into view and wheeled their bikes out of the way. Robles killed the engine and stepped out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buenos dĂ­as,â&#x20AC;? he said, and handed each a sheet of paper that read, in English and Spanish, â&#x20AC;&#x153;On March 25,

2009, the city of Watsonville will be removing any and all structures, beds, blankets and any other material that is left behind. Pursuant to Watsonville muni code: 10-2.11 Camping in any park prohibited. 10-2.15 Remaining in park during nighttime hours.â&#x20AC;? The city has increased its levee cleanups from a couple times a year to four times, though the police know full well that new homes will spring back up within weeks of the cleanup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re little worker ants,â&#x20AC;? says Lt. Edward Gluhan. Though the police try to coordinate with the county Homeless Persons Health Project in an effort to get the people into some kind of rehabilitation or housing program, Georgina Ibarra, the client specialist assigned to Watsonville, knows that many either canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a couple things going on down there,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your typical alcoholics. There are people that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find affordable housing and are working. And you have also the gangs that are coming through and beating these people and taking their money, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re forced to stay in the levee because of that.â&#x20AC;? No one is sure how to clear the camps. Some say cut down the trees and pave the river in concrete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great big can of worms from an environmental aspect. Do you remove brush and foliage that has some environmental value to help address the public safety issue?â&#x20AC;? says Lt. Darren Thompson. For now, the city is stuck in the same dance: The people build, the city destroys, the people build again.

R

OBLESâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first camp was made up of two boxy structures, the large one perhaps 10 feet by 15 feet, built on risers up off the muddy riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge, tarps and heavy blankets tied with yellow and blue twine over a frame of thick tree branches. Inside the air was stuffy but warmer than the cool spring breeze outside, and there were large mattresses with sheets and blankets. Robles scattered a few notices inside. A Mexican flag hung in the tree branches over chairs covered in crude gang graffiti. The two men at the entrance told Robles that the rest of the residents were out either looking for work or picking up recyclables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting for fieldwork to start up again,â&#x20AC;? said Robles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I reminded them thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shelter, but they said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full.â&#x20AC;?

Back on the Kobuta, Robles drove back up the path and on to the next camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a pretty typical camp,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More on the clean side than some Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen, really.â&#x20AC;? He visited three more campsites, relatively similar to the first, but each with a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;flowers in vases, makeshift kitchens, clotheslines. They had whole living room sets, couches, folding tables, coffee tables, bicycles, crutches, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toys (â&#x20AC;&#x153;How the heck do they bring everything down here?â&#x20AC;? Robles muttered). They were decorated with images of La Virgen. One little structure made from wooden planks had the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Primero diosâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;God firstâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; written on the walls near a tacked-up centerfold. ¨

1=D 3@ j :3 D3 3 1/;> There was a lot of garbage. Balled-up T-shirts, shattered beer bottles, toilet paper, underwear, condom wrappers, shopping carts pilfered from Safeway, a bucket with a dead fish floating in it. There was also a cornucopia of food sitting in the sun, in milk crates and on tables, some of it marked â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second Harvestâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;canned pork, canned green beans, Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cream of Chicken Soup, Wonder Bread, box macaroni and cheese, Smuckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jam, lemons, orange juice, pinto beans, peanut butter, a Trader Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salad with pomegranate and blue cheese, yellowing broccoli, a wedge of Brie, chili, tostadas, bell peppers, potatoes, onions, Diet Coke, instant coffee, corn tacos, rice. The people in the camps took the notices quietlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this happens every few months, they confirmedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;though one man, ostensibly drunk, railed that he wanted to hear it from a judge. Robles told him he has to enforce city laws, even though he and the levee dwellers know that the houses will grow back in a matter of days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have to make sure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as lavish as they do, like when they bring down the big furniture,â&#x20AC;? said Robles as he prepared to return to the station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It needs to be done. How healthy can it be for a human being to live down there? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not socially acceptable.â&#x20AC;?

A

FEW months later, Fernando Vega, the Watsonville-based outreach worker for Santa Cruz AIDS Project, walked through the grass, now brittle and yellow, to the camps with a canvas tote filled with travel size soaps, shampoos and condoms slung over one shoulder. By this time, the river had shriveled to only about 6 feet wide, crossable by a bridge fashioned out of wood pallets balanced precariously on top of shopping carts, their wheels embedded in the sand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buenas tardes,â&#x20AC;? called Vega, stepping gingerly across. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buenas tardes,â&#x20AC;? someone shouted back. A rooster with brilliant black and white plumage herded a small hen away from him as a half-dozen men and women came into view behind some trees, seated or lounging inside a two bedroom-type casita. Vega is one of the few outsiders they trust. He says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because, like them, when he first came to Watsonville in 1989 he slept here too, for two months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I know the feeling of being cold, of not having anything to eat. I understand.â&#x20AC;? To hear them tell it, Vega translating,

the river life is a perfectly acceptable one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all a family,â&#x20AC;? said 45-year-old Roberto Saldivar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody who lives here feels safe, we share everything. Everyone on the outside is selfish.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I have even one taco, I share it with everyone,â&#x20AC;? said a man who goes by Jorge dressed in neat cowboy attire, a Natural Ice 40-ounce on the ground at the tips of his snakeskin boots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somos puros amigos.â&#x20AC;? True friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying to leave them by themselves,â&#x20AC;? said Vega. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cops come down and take down the whole camp. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to find mattresses and everything.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are probably happier than anyone outside,â&#x20AC;? said Jorge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay bills.â&#x20AC;? A very short, gregarious 38-yearold named Alicia Sanchez Andrade invited us into her shelter, giggling selfconsciously as she tried to tidy up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m embarrassed,â&#x20AC;? she said in a bright but hoarse voice, throwing a blanket over one of the two mattresses inside. She smoothed her bright pink bedspread and

sat. She was petite, her small features made up with heavy black eyeliner and bright red lipstick, doll-like. She wore large hoops earrings and a trendy newsboy cap. Her home was warm, dry and clean. The floors were made of many soft layers of carpet. Sanchez Andrade had hung multiple clocks somehow from the tarp walls. At her bedside was a framed picture of her two married daughters, her 5-month-old granddaughter, pictures of the Virgin and an RCA stereo with a CD player and tape deck, which doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work without an electrical outlet. She even had a kind of guest bedroom adjacent to hers, a sparser tent with a mattress. Sanchez Andrade is the camp cook. Each day she makes enough food for 15 to 20 people. That morning was pork, cheese tortillas and a green salad. She spends her days collecting recyclables, which can net her $15 or 20 dollars per day, then she cooks dinner over an open fire and goes to work at Los Gatitos, a bar on the Monterey County side of the river.

Sanchez Andrade said that after leaving an abusive husband in Mexico, she lived in town with her family but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get along with her mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I wanted to go out, she said donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to be free.â&#x20AC;? She said she began to hang out on the river and decided that a lifestyle free from judgment, where she can drink and go out as much as she wants, is preferable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She likes thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the forest and trees. It reminds her of her hometown, Colima. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how she was raised,â&#x20AC;? translated Vega. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todos los dias, bonitos, todos,â&#x20AC;? she said. Every day is beautiful.

T

HATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S not how Carlos Contreras, a 23-year-old immigrant from MichoacĂĄn in southern Mexico, remembers his year on the river. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At nighttime when everybody would be asleep, I would have time to think about what was happening to me and I would ask myself, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What am I doing ¨

here?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said in Spanish. Pastor Gary Valenzuela translated as the two sat in the offices of Victory Outreach Ministry in Watsonville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then I would think, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. The following day it would start all over again. We drink and drink and drink and use drugs,â&#x20AC;? he said. When asked why he came to the United States four years ago, Contreras flashed a smile showing a couple of teeth tinged gray and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The American dream.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the most part, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a working community,â&#x20AC;? says Patricia Morales, executive director of Pajaro Valley Loaves & Fishes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of those people are working and sending money back home. It makes it very unique.â&#x20AC;? That includes, for instance, Miguel Maravilla, a 49-year-old man who came to Watsonville in 1980. An laconic man with deep lines in his face and a weary limp, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working and sending money back to his father and siblings in Zacatecas, Mexico, as much as $300 a month when the work is good. He said in better times he had a steady job with a contractor in Santa Cruz, but after the boss retired, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find steady

work for a non-English speaker besides intermittent fieldwork. When he makes enough money, he rents a room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard for me to leave,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want a house and a family. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work anywhere if they have a job for me.â&#x20AC;? When he has a job, like the twomonth-long gig that just ended pruning apple trees, Maravilla says he wakes up at 5am, sometimes to his cell phone alarm, sometimes â&#x20AC;&#x153;with my head, thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have to go to work,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? packs some of the campâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakfast for lunch, and comes up from the riverbed to wait for a ride from a friend or from the majordomo, or foreman. Though he said he personally feels safe sleeping on the river, he said his money isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and he keeps it hidden along with anything of value, like his good shoes and clothing, at a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Theft isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only thing faced by the campers, according to homeless services specialist Ibarra, though all the current residents strongly denied having been victimized by gang members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gangs are getting really strong there and are beating people up for money or alcohol or just for the heck of it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also had a white guy posing as a


 j !

A/<B/1@CH1=; july 15-22, 2009 1=D3@AB=@G 

ACUPUNCTURE volunteer for the sheriff. He was ripping clients off of their sleeping bags and bicycles and setting the camps on fire. He was racist, like being a Nazi.â&#x20AC;? In 2007 there were a total of 1,462 calls for service in the levee and in the area between the Pajaro River and Front Street, with 164 total crimes reported, 26 of them actually in the levee. In 2008, there were 144 total crimes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a history of people in those camps being victimized,â&#x20AC;? says Police Chief Medina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People going in and messing with them and stealing their money and beating them up.â&#x20AC;? Contreras quickly discovered the dark side of life on the levee. He arrived in Watsonville intending to work and send money home, but he also had a drinking problem. After getting fired for missing work, Contreras tried to stay with family in Watsonville, but after they threw him out for drinking, he found himself at the levee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would panhandle and steal for the drugs and food and alcohol that he needed,â&#x20AC;? said Pastor Valenzuela, translating for Contreras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[In his group,] they had some individuals who would wake up real early in the morning, like 2, 3 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock in the morning and go collect recyclables. They knew once they gave [Carlos] a fix, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be able to get up and go, and then he would go out and steal and he would probably get a little bit more money than recyclables.â&#x20AC;? Though it was generally frowned upon on the levee to steal, Contreras occupied the lowest rung on the social ladder. He said that while it was true that everyone shared what little they had, if he came back too often with nothing to contribute, the rest of the camp began to turn on him, and he started stealing after his increasingly haggard appearance made him an unsuccessful panhandler. There was a short-lived high point when Contreras was a drug dealer for an outside gang member, until he was caught giving away the cocaine and meth in exchange for favors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a while he had everything, he had people who respected him, he had people that were protecting him, he had a girl over there,â&#x20AC;? said Valenzuela. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only reason they were with him was because he was giving them drugs. When the guy took the drugs [back], nobody was protecting him and they told him to get out.â&#x20AC;? Victory Outreach dispatches a small crew of reformed gang members and drug addicts to the levees nearly every Saturday. Though they only succeed in wooing someone away from the

life maybe once every four months, it worked for Contreras, who said that after the outreach workers sat and prayed with him about a year and a half ago he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop thinking about leaving.

Several men said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too scared to return to the levee. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too dangerous,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said one.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;He remembers leaving the levee and going to look for our church. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember how he got there, but he saw a couple that used to live on the river, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of the church,â&#x20AC;? said Valenzuela. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he lay down and had an epileptic seizure. When he woke up, we took him into the Christian recovery home.â&#x20AC;? Now Contreras is working at an auto body shop and living in a home with other working people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a lot of potential, maybe he could be a pastor down the line,â&#x20AC;? said Valenzuela. On the levee, they still ask outreach workers about him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy he changed his life,â&#x20AC;? said another church member, Alex Leonor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they think regardless, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always going to be that drunk. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way they think.â&#x20AC;?

O

N another visit with SCAP worker Fernando Vega, it was easier to crack the facade of contentment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you happy here?â&#x20AC;? Vega asked the same camp of people. The men considered it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not that happy,â&#x20AC;? answered Saldivar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any other place to go.â&#x20AC;? Someone mentioned Victory Outreach and produced their little green flierâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cristo es la respuesta,â&#x20AC;? it saysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Christ is the answer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to go,â&#x20AC;? blurted 43-year-old Berta Olgin, a bedraggled woman in a tank top, her bra straps falling down as she swigs some kind of clear liquid out of an empty plastic candy jar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept her,â&#x20AC;? translated Vega. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said nobody can help her leave drugs and alcohol.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to go, I want to go,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she ¨

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But he said I was too crazy.â&#x20AC;? Even Sanchez Andrade forgot about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful daysâ&#x20AC;? as soon as Vega began to ask her about her 40-year-old boyfriend Jose, smudging her eyeliner in a sudden flood of tears. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been gone a month, she said, arrested for abusing her and locked up at the Rountree corrections facility in Watsonville. And though she denied it, Vega said, from what he knows, Sanchez Andrade is a sex worker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known her for years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I convinced her to protect herself; she started using condoms.â&#x20AC;? Vega himself said he had his first sexual experiences on the levee, as a homeless 18-yearold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really easy to find sex down there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was a teenager I thought when I had sex it would be like someone special, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that. It was because I needed money.â&#x20AC;? In the last few months, a palpable undercurrent of fear has gripped the encampment. In the yellow grass, halfway between the running path and the river, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a makeshift memorial. The parks department has carefully cut the grass around it. There are bunches of fake flowers, a cross, a flag with the Virgin on it, some candles, and on top of an upside-down water jug someone left a penny and a quarter. This is where 44year-old Jose Maria Barajas was stabbed to death on April 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh,â&#x20AC;? says Major Luis Martinez, director of the Salvation Army. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad story.â&#x20AC;? Martinez was one of the last people to see Barajas, a short hazel-eyed man who kept a black puppy and had a voracious drinking habit, before he was stabbed in the torso and jugular and left bleeding in the grass. He said that Barajas had been living at the Salvation Army, staying sober and working for three or four weeks with his young son Jose Jr., or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joey,â&#x20AC;? before it happened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard [Joeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] dad had been jumped a week before. Gang members jumped him and took $200 dollars from him and he got into a fight with them,â&#x20AC;? said Martinez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Barajas] was all bruised and he kept telling his son, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the end of the story, I got to get even, I got to find them.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? On the day he died, Barajas had his bicycle taken from him. He reported to the police that it was the same person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d stolen his money days before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unknown with an AKA of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;El Diablitoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; took the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gray mountain bike by force near the Laundromat at E. Front St.,â&#x20AC;? reads the police log for that day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That night when they came here, the son was saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid for my dad, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been drinking,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Martinez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It

was a premonition that they may kill him. His son was right.â&#x20AC;? According to Martinez, while Joey stayed behind at the Salvation Army securing a bed for his pregnant teenage girlfriend, Barajas stormed out of the shelter, drunk, to find whoever had robbed him. By the time Joey caught up with him, at about 7:19pm, his father had already been stabbed, according to police. He died at Watsonville Community Hospital.

T

HE MURDER is still fresh in the minds of the homeless in Watsonville, though no one has identified the killer or named â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Diablito.â&#x20AC;? A small group of men at the Salvation Army, skittish and unwilling to give names, said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too scared to return to the levee and have been sleeping in cars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to stay there,â&#x20AC;? said one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too dangerous.â&#x20AC;? Another man on the levee said the police had been questioning them and taking pictures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been scared,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sanchez Andrade, who said Barajas was a longtime friend, began to weep openly when she said her boyfriend is being questioned about the murder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was saying they were both drunk and arguing, but he said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it,â&#x20AC;? said Vega. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She believes him. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s afraid. The cops are going to blame him for something he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do.â&#x20AC;? She said Barajas used to camp with them, often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a good friend, in his way, he was a good man,â&#x20AC;? she said. Sanchez Andrade wiped her face with her palm and produced a handwritten letter sent by her boyfriend. Vega skimmed it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s says he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it,â&#x20AC;? he read. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I love you, wait for me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Sanchez Andrade wiped her face a final time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy,â&#x20AC;? Vega translated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about the future. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll live another day. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy if everybody had a job.â&#x20AC;? Outside the men drank and scraped the needles off cactus pads with the cap from a 40 to make nopales. The sun began its slow decent, still bright and hot, striping the earth with shadows. The camp was nearly empty now and quiet, save for the chirping of birds and hushed trickle of the dwindling river. The fieldworkers would be back soon, and Sanchez Andrade began to busy herself on the flimsy table near the fire pit, her kitchen. Though the black chicken sat nearby under a tree, the rooster was missing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the foxes came here and killed it,â&#x20AC;? one man explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chicken was lucky.â&#x20AC;? 0

3;0@/13/0:3G=C Jimmy Stewart clings to Kim Novak in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vertigo.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Spin Cycle Alfred Hitchcockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s masterpiece, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vertigo,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; retains its vital mystery after 50 years 0G;716/3:A5/<B

R

EWATCHING Vertigo recently, I was struck by how few characters director Alfred Hitchcock needs to create an epic. Only five personsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;plus a few memorable cameosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;really count, and two of them are the same and one disappears halfway through. And yet, the film, which turned 50 last year (it premiered on May 9, 1958), conjures up an entire world: San Francisco, past and present, as animated by one manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless absorption into an object of desire found, then lost, then reinvented. Each time I have seen Vertigo, from the first theatrical rerelease after 10 years of legal limbo to multiple VHS and DVD studies, I have found myself hoovered into Hitchcockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vortex (symbolized by Saul Bassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spinning-galaxy motif in the credits) again. The film is constructed as precisely and as tightly as its protagonistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pursuit of an unattainable phantom. Every shot, every line, every musical cue adds precisely to the whole. The effect can be stiflingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the tightness leaves you breathless for two hours. But Vertigo casts a spell over audiences just as surely as Madeleine Elster does over Scottie Ferguson. The film is worth seeing on the big screen, which is why the Del Marâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midnight screenings should be packed. Vertigo ostensibly resembles a detective

story, as a retired policeman, Ferguson (Jimmy Stewart), suffering from acrophobia, is hired by an old friend to follow the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). The spirit of a tormented ancestor, one Carlotta Valdes, driven mad and robbed of her child by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rich, powerful manâ&#x20AC;? in Gold Rush days, seems to inhabit the wife. On her peregrinations in and around San Francisco, Madeleine visits a portrait of Carlotta at the Palace of the Legion of Fine Art, stands by her grave at Mission Dolores and takes a room at the crumbling McKittrick Hotel that was once Carlottaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. Eventually, the watcher falls for the watched. Scottieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need to possess Madeleine leads him into madness, both psychological and moral. After his vertigo prevents him from saving Madeleine from a fatal fall, the coroner (a brilliant bit of business by Henry Jones) dryly sums up the detectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dilemma: he is technically innocent, but his â&#x20AC;&#x153;weaknessâ&#x20AC;? meant that he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;powerless when he was most needed.â&#x20AC;? Scottie must spend the rest of the film regaining that powerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at the greatest of costs. VERTIGO (1958) plays Friday and Saturday at midnight at the Del Mar Theatre in Santa Cruz.

I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read the Harry Potter books, but I have noticed how around the third film, everyone started to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ooh, this is where it starts to get a lot darker.â&#x20AC;? Which it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, by the way. Then they said the same thing about the fourth film. Then, incredibly, they said the same thing about the fifth film! And what does Roger Ebertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood

Prince say? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This sixth chapter is a darker, more ominous Harry Potter film.â&#x20AC;? Maybe by the seventh film, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just show two hours of a completely black screen, to prove once and for all that Harry Potter is hardcore. (Opens Wed at 41st Ave., Santa Cruz 9, Scotts Valley and Green Valley.) (SP) B636C@B:=193@

(1987) Anytime someone age 13 to 35 badmouths Santa Cruz, all you have to do is remind them you live in the town where Lost Boys was filmed. Amazingly, this always shuts them up. With that in mind, I suggest

we cut the crap and make this the official film of Santa Cruz. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only thing that can finally restore our civic movie pride, after it was (allegedly) snatched away by our own Chamber of Commerce, who persuaded the filmmakers to change the name of the setting to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santa Carlaâ&#x20AC;? because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the whole â&#x20AC;&#x153;murder capital of the worldâ&#x20AC;? thing being dragged up out of Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past again.

134 min.) Francis Ford Coppola makes his directorial comeback bid with this drama about a teenager searching out his missing brother in Buenos Aires. Coppola has summoned all his filmgeek powers here: The black-and-white-withbits-of-color suggests a bookend to Rumble Fish. The widescreen was meant to invoke Kurosawa. He made the cinematographer watch

his favorite film-school movies, like On the Waterfront and La notte. If you look closely enough, you will probably see a kitchen sink. (Opens Fri at the Nick.) (SP) C<;7AB/93<167:2

and deadly practices can be stopped. (RvB)

/E/GE35=(R; 98 min.) Burt (John Krasinski), an alternainsurance broker, and his pregnant mate, the dour, nervous Verona (SNL alum Maya Rudolph) seek a community. Sadly, they learn that America is a beautiful country full of ugly people. The two travel, meeting parents who are too permissive, or not permissive enough, before visiting an idealistic couple with a multiracial von Trappâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; like family in Montreal. Not enough jokes, by a long chalk. Alison Janney, the standout, as a sharp-tongued mom, is only temporary relief from the two leads: the moral and physical center of this movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universe. The writers are San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Eggers and his wife, Vendela Vida, writers who seek the wonder and freshness in aged platitudes about the innocence of children. Director Sam Mendes makes this a Reactionary Road sequel to his last film Revolutionary Road; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sitcom for nesting hipsters with guest appearances by celebrities playing wacky relatives. (RvB) 4==27<1 (PG; 101 min.) The most necessary film of the summer. The outrages of corporate food production are exposed in this fast and infuriating documentary by Robert Kenner. Defying the lawyers, one corporate chicken farmer shows us her wretched, antibioticpacked birds. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industry lobbyist is tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulator, as sure as todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pig is tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bacon. Drooling packed-in steers are fattened with cheap Iowa corn; it breeds E. coli in their guts. The nigh-annual outbreaks of E. coli are seemingly the cost of business, a price paid even by spinach-eating vegetarians. Director Kenner canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be accused of starry-eyed idealism. Food, Inc. reminds that if the United States could make Big Tobacco come to heel, then agribusinessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wasteful

B636/<5=D3@(R;

100 min.) A well-built, good-looking and satisfyingly low comedy with a sturdy silentmovie two-reeler plot and the wit to realize that the Three Stooges format is solid gold. A quartet of Southern California types heads to Vegas for a bachelor party. Cut, eventually, to The Morning After: The groom has vanished, and the three chumps, rendered amnesiac by booze, must search for him. They are: kittywhipped, Larry-like Stu (Ed Helms), confident but wrongheaded Moe-style leader Phil (Bradley Cooper) and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;one-man wolf packâ&#x20AC;? Alan, played by the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standout, Zach Galifianakis, Curlying beautifully. (RvB) 7:=D3G=C03B6 1==>3@ (PG-13; 102

review, page 41. ;GA7AB3@¸A933>3@

(PG-13; 109 min.) Despite the disastrous John Q, writer-director Nick Cassavetes dives back into the healthcare crisis with this story about a young girl (Abigail Breslin from Little Miss Sunshine) who was conceived as a testtube baby to provide organs for her dying sister (Sofia Vassilieva). Her attempt to free herself from her organdonor destiny leaves her mother (Cameron Diaz) in a glass case of emotion. (SP) B63>@=>=A/:

(PG-13; 107 min.) Boss lady Sandra Bullock and underling Ryan Reynolds fake an engagement for the benefit of the family of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bride.â&#x20AC;? Directed by Anne Fletcher. >C0:713<3;73A

(R; 141 min.) Previous takes on the life of John Dillinger had themes like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crime doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

payâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Society is to blame.â&#x20AC;? Michael Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was only a movie.â&#x20AC;? Mann carries out this study of Dillingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career from its middle to its end in darting, little-cam movements. The photography often uses high-def synthetic light: yellowish-white flares of gun bursts and gritty magenta torches burning. Surfaces come to mindâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what this skin-deep film gives you when you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear the dialogue or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell who the new characters are supposed to be. In numberless close-ups, Johnny Depp emphasizes surface, too. Spilling out the capsulized details of his life in three or four lines, Dillinger asks his girl Billie (Marion Cotillard) â&#x20AC;&#x153;What else do you want to know about me?â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to keep us satisfied, too. Who am I? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the guy playing Dillinger, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who. The movie makes the master bank robber a gent, a showman, an ardent monogamous lover; when he takes hostages, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to relieve them of the humdrumness of their lives. But Public Enemies never takes us hostage; it never establishes that link it reaches for, the link between those hard times and ours. (RvB) AB/@B@39(PG-13;

136 min.) Happily, J.J. Abramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; version of the 40-year-old story is a loving refurbishing of an old structure rather than a demolishing. Traditions honored include the green babe (Rachel Nichols) and the red-shirted ensign. As Kirk, Chris Pine himself is the ham this sandwich needs. Zachary Quinto is very poised as Spock, the tragic mulatto of space. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real tension arises in the partnership between Kirk and Spockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two halves of one great leader, calm calculation meeting insane daring. (RvB) AC;;3@6=C@A

(Unrated; 103 min.) American movies are usually about people with one problem; French movies are usually about people with a nexus of problems. In Olivier Assayasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; absorbing and smart new film, the

problems of an extended family illuminate the abstract idea of artistic patrimony. (Previously, it was French cinematic patrimony, in Assayasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best-known film here, Irma Vep). At her 75th birthday party, HĂŠlène (Edith Scob) prepares to divide up her worldly goods among her children. These children are scattered all over the globe and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the wherewithal to keep a luscious summer house going; the place is stuffed with valuable art pieces, too, which will have to be doled out to relatives and museums. HĂŠlène was the longtime companion (perhaps more) of her uncle, a noted postImpressionist; the slightly awkward legacy is puzzled out during the extended mourning session after HĂŠlène drops dead. It takes a perceptive director to remember the physical similarities between the young girl Scob was (in Eyes Without a Face) and Juliette Binoche, here playing HĂŠlèneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, the one who inherited the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic gifts. Mulling over the cultural and financial primacy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s migrated out of France into China and America, Summer Hours makes no recriminations. Assayas is gentle about the harsh edge of time scraping away things

that are traditionally French, leaving behind the pop (mono)culture of superheroes, sneakers and drinking beer from the bottle. At a final house party for the family, he dwells on a trio of charming young modern girls dancing to Les Plastiscinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; terrific punk tune â&#x20AC;&#x153;Loser,â&#x20AC;? as if they were the Three Graces or something.

to finesse that most tiresome quality of movies about serial killers on the rampage. She makes them omniscient, able to take on rooms full of people, to walk unnoticed, etc. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make them supernatural like vampires, you might as well give them fangs. (RvB)

106 min.) Grubby, truculent remake, with John Travolta looking like an old and jaded rent boy as a criminal mastermind hostaging a group of subway riders. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opposed by Walter Garber (Denzel Washington), a lowkey civil servant for the MTA; Washington downplays things until he practically vanishes. On the sidelines are a surprisingly ineffectual (if refreshingly lowvolumed) hostage negotiator, John Turturro, and a butterball New York mayor (James Gandolfini) trying to survive his own scandal. (RvB) C>(PG; 96 min.) During the last Depression, a reject kid named Carl becomes fascinated with that darling of the newsreels, the intrepid dirigible pilot Charles Muntz, who discovered the bones of an immense

(R; 97 min.) (R; 97 min.) Jennifer Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Surveillance is, at times, smart and scary. But its would-be twist endingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;made to please the hardest nihilistsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; moves it into territory that alienates a larger audience that might like the identity games and sometimes funny sadism in the early sections. The action takes place in terrain that seems inherited from Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, David: the bad America in the middle of nowhere. Two FBI agents trail a pair of killers. Agent Anderson (Julie Ormond) and Agent Hallaway (Bill Pullman) query the survivors of a mysterious trauma: Bobbi (Pell James), a druggedout goodtime girl; Jim (French Stewart), a wounded police officer; and a little girl named Stephanie (Ryan Simpkins), traumatized and silent. Lynch tries

bird in South America and was declared a fraud. Fast-forward and Carl (voiced by Ed Asner) is a squareheaded, Spencer Tracy lookalike of 78. When trouble comes, he escapes in the only direction open to himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;straight up, with his battered house as the gondola to thousands of balloons, Unfortunately, a pesky 7-year-old scout, Russell (Jordan Nagai), is clinging to the front porch. The pair land in South America, where they discover a 13-foottall iridescent goonie bird and eventually Muntz himself (Christopher Plummer). Pixar spoils us. The news that Up is one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best films isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really news; Pixar has faith in an audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to feel without being manipulatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes them more than just a studio with an unusually dazzling command of the vocabulary of animation. (RvB) E6/B3D3@E=@9A

(PG-13; 92 min.) Very minor and musty but often funny misanthropy comedy by Woody Allen. Larry David plays Boris, formerly a physics professor, shortlisted for the Nobel Prize (â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all politics, just like any awardâ&#x20AC;?); today, he is retired, a

free-range castigator, teaching chess (brutally) to children and living in a brick-lined vault in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinatown. A waif called Melodie (Evan Rachel Wood) drops into his lap; Melodie takes Borisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprint completelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his rants, his phobias and his dislike of sexâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and marries him. A year afterward, the in-laws arrive for a first visit: Marietta (Patricia Clarkson) believes that she has tracked her runaway daughter down and is outraged to find the girl married to a neurotic man old enough to be her grandfather. Soon thereafter, Mariettaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estranged husband (Ed Begley Jr.) shows up in the apartment. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on a script Allen had in his drawer for several decades, and it often looks it. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often canned corn, give it its props; Allen knows how to make a civilized comedy even when denouncing civilization. (RvB) G3/@=<3 (PG-13; 97 min.) Jack Black and Michael Cera basically play themselves, only in prehistoric times. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to take back Jack, but Michael Cera can just stay there until he gets over that annoying shtick he does in every film. (SP)

I worry that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be lusting for such total control over so much wild sweetness that you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually formulate a foolproof plan to commune with even a pinch of that sweetness.

B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): Cuckoo birds build no nests of their own. Instead, they rely on trickery to raise their young. The female cuckoo lays her eggs in the nest of a host whose eggs are similar in size and color. The host, often a sparrow, cares for the cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eggs as her own, and usually rears the hatchlings until they reach maturity. Does this behavior ring a bell? I suspect that something analogous is unfolding in your world. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m alerting you to the situation so that you will be fully informed as you decide how to proceed. (P.S. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying this is a bad thing; just want you to acknowledge the truth.) 53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): I hate to admit it, but love is not always enough to solve every problem. On some occasions you need love, clever insights, strategic maneuvers and fierce determination. In my astrological opinion, this is one of those times. Take a moment right now to shush the grumbling dialogue you keep having with yourself about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair and what you deserve. Save all that mental energy for the work of fighting like hell for the fair share you deserve. Oh, and while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fighting like hell, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to be as strategic as Gandhi, as loving as Einstein, and as fiercely determined as Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Sarah Silverman combined.

1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): I invite you to write down brief descriptions of the five most pleasurable moments youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever experienced in your life. Let your imagination dwell lovingly on these memories for, say, 20 minutes. And keep them close to the surface of your awareness in the week ahead. If you ever catch yourself slipping into a negative train of thought, interrupt it immediately and compel yourself to fantasize about those Big Five Ecstatic Moments. This exercise will be an excellent way to prime yourself for a New Age of Unhurried Bliss and Gentle Beauty, which I predict is just ahead for you. If you can keep the morose part of your mind quiet, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance you will stir up a new ecstatic experience that will belong near the top of your alltime list. :3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): Welcome to your aromatherapy workshop, Leo. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be using imaginary scents because, frankly, sometimes fantasy yields better results than the real thing. (Especially for you right now; keep that in mind as you deal with other situations in your life.) For your first exercise, imagine the aromas of eucalyptus and vinegar. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll clear your head of static, creating a nice big empty space for your fresh assignment to come pouring in from the future. Next, imagine the fragrance of hot buttered popcorn. It will make you more receptive to the outside help that has been trying and trying and trying to attract your attention. Have you ever taken a new computer out of the box? Remember that smell? Simulate it now. In your subconscious mind, it will awaken the expectation that the next chapter of your life story is about to begin. D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): O ye of little faith: Do ye not understand that the events of mid-July through mid-August of 2009 are but the fruition of seeds ye planted in September, October and November of last year? Do not thank or blame the gods, but only thyself, for the destiny that is upon ye. Now please prepare to assume thy new goodies and perks, O favored one, as well as thy new temptations and headaches, with full knowledge that ye are receiving the exact rewards and responsibilities ye earned many months ago. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): Sometimes this job

of mine grinds me down with a heavy sense of responsibility. Am I doing the right thing by divulging so many cosmic secrets? Do people use my advice in good ways? This week Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m especially tormented. Would it be ethical of me to reveal that you could dig a hot tip out of a wastebasket, or that you could prosper because of someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foolishness? Or how about if I disclosed that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve temporarily

By Rob Brezsny

acquired a dicey edge over a competitor whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previously kicked your butt? And would it be mean of me to suggest that you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share a vast idea with a half-vast person? I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just have to trust that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll show maximum integrity in using all of this inside dope.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): There goes your exaggerated respect for warped chunks of complications. Here comes an opportunity to make a break for bubbly freedom. To take advantage, Scorpio, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to travel much lighter. So please peel off your armor. Wipe that forty-pound sneer of doubt off your face. Bury your broken-down theories by the side of the path, and donate all your unnecessary props to the birds and the bees. Strip down, in other words, to the bare minimum. Where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going all youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need are your good looks and a big fresh attitude.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave me hanging, Sagittarius. What happens next? How could you even imagine youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wrapped the whole thing up? According to my analysis, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got at least one more riddle to solve, one more gift to negotiate, one more scar to wish upon. (Yes, that says â&#x20AC;&#x153;scar,â&#x20AC;? not â&#x20AC;&#x153;star.â&#x20AC;?) To stop pushing for more adventure at this pregnant moment would be a crime against nature and a whole chapter short of a bestseller. Get out there and bring this story home. 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): It makes me famished just to think of you there stewing in your hunger. You almost remind me of a bear thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just awoken from hibernation or a political prisoner whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on a hunger strike. And yet I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a craving for food that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re suffering from. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even an impossible yearning for sex or fame or power or money, either. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starving, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ravenous, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mad for something you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a name forâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;something whose existence you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully understand and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite imagine. But I predict youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll uncover a fuller truth about this thing very soon, and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more than halfway toward gratifying your hunger.

/?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): If I were your daddy, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take you mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;climbing or buy you a three-week intensive class in the foreign tongue of your choice. If I were your president, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give you a Purple Heart for your undercover heroism and make you ambassador to Italy. If I were your therapist, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d send you on a pilgrimage to a sanctuary where everyone means exactly what they say. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m merely your five-minutes-a-week consultant, so all I can really do is say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Escape the cramped quarters of your own mind. Slip away from the corners youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been backed into. Stop telling the convoluted stories youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve concocted to rationalize why you should be afraid. Get out of the loop and escape into the big, fresh places that will rejuvenate your eyes and heart.â&#x20AC;? >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): Long-standing myths are on the verge of mutating. Stories that have remained fixed for years are about to acquire unexpected wrinkles. The effects may be pretty spectacular. I suspect itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the equivalent of Sleeping Beauty waking up from her long sleep without the help of the princeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kiss, or like Little Red Riding Hood devouring the wolf instead of vice versa. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something you can do, Pisces, to ensure that the new versions of the old tales are more empowering than the originals: For the foreseeable future, take on the demeanor and spirit of a noble warrior with high integrity and a f luid sense of humor. 6][Se]`Y(;OYSOUcSaaOP]cbbVS []abW[^]`bO\bPWb]TaSZTY\]eZSRUS g]c¸`SabWZZWU\]`O\bOP]cbBSabWTgOb 4`SSEWZZ/ab`]Z]UgQ][ Go to @3/:/AB@=:=5G1=; to check out Rob Brezsnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Expanded Weekly Audio Horoscopes and Daily Text Message Horoscopes.

Could your car be converted to run on batteries instead of gas? Would it provide the speed and range you need? How hard is it to convert? What does it cost to convert and operate an electric car? These questions and others will be answered in a one-day workshop.The early portion of the talk will cover general information about conversions - cost, performance, environmental issues, etc. Then the speakers will get into the nuts and bolts, from choosing a suitable chassis, stripping it, installing the components and wiring, to charging, maintenance, and driving techniques.
