<8B@D>C43. When I talked to your reporter Alastair Bland, I asked him not to misrepresent my comments (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coastal Conundrum,â&#x20AC;? Aug. 26). I am disappointed to say that he has not only misrepresented my point of view, but seemingly had his mind made up about how the story would be written before he talked to me. This is the same criticism that I gave him about the Marine Life Protection Act process. Being an abalone diver himself and having one of his favorite places closed by the MLPA inf luenced the â&#x20AC;&#x153;spinâ&#x20AC;? on his story and caused him to not offer factual, nonbiased reporting. Two facts that were misrepresented in his story concerning my comments are when he inferred that â&#x20AC;&#x153;2XA would have prohibited abalone diving in the waters just steps away from [my] Sea Ranch vacation home.â&#x20AC;? I do not own a Sea Ranch vacation home or any other home at Sea Ranch. In the very next paragraph, Alastair has a quotation that makes it sound like a quote from me. I did not give that quote, even though I did criticize the process by which the IPA was arrived at. I did not know the outcome â&#x20AC;&#x153;once Gustafson was gone.â&#x20AC;? I did not

know why she left or who would be appointed in her place. However, once Benninghoven was appointed, the outcome was more obvious to me. Alastair also conveniently forgot to report that the actual area closed by the IPA (in the Salt Point/ Stewarts Point/Sea Ranch area) only included the northern one mile of Salt Point State Park and that the other six to seven miles of closed area, at Stewarts Point, is all private property and therefore inaccessible by the public from the land. It is only access by boat or kayak, which excludes most divers. Sea Ranch, on the other hand, has six public access points and a public bluff-top trail. Another glaring omission is the fact that people diving at Sea Ranch often bring their families, rent houses there and shop in our local stores, bringing in a tremendous amount of revenue to the local economy (likely much more than people diving at Salt Point Park). In fact, according to DFG records, there are more abalones taken from Sea Ranch than Salt Point State Park, indicating that Sea Ranchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usage is higher than that at Salt Point. Why would anyone prefer the closure of an area more heavily used compared to an area (mostly Stewarts Point) which is private property, and far less used,

unless that person owned the property, had a boat or had his favorite diving spot at the north end of Salt Point Park? This kind of biased reporting only serves to make me more skeptical of special interestsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even newspapers.

Alastair Bland responds: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m disappointed and concerned that you feel one of the quotes I attributed to you is inaccurate, but I quite vividly remember the statement, and it appears in my careful notes. I also must point out that the story as I wrote it was not an editorial reflecting my opinions but was, rather, told to me by almost a dozen other people. Among them, the majority gave a very negative opinion of Sea Ranch and its public diving access. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re absolutely right that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about the six-mile Richardson property that the IPA closes, which 2XA would have left open and which offers no public access from the highway, but I felt that including another geographical concept in this story would have made the issue even more technical and confusing than it already may have been for the average reader. Lastly, when I referred to your vacation home, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that you own the place, just that you vacation there.

?0ACH>5540A) This is in response to Michael Zebulonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s verbose screed explaining why he and his fellow travelers are so apoplectic that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even talk about healthcare reform (Letters, Aug. 26). Resentment has been building since Inauguration Day, eh, Mike? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called losing the election. Your party, the Party of Fear, lost. Imagine our dismay when the Party of Fear, led by a fraudulent president, pretended to have a mandate to take us into not one but two pointless wars at a cost of between $2 trillion and $3 trillion. I feel your pain. (Although it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come as too great a surprise that Obama is doing what he said he would do during the campaign.) Why would we think the Republicans would be behind these ravers? Sending out fundraising letters saying that Republicans might be denied healthcare under the Obama plan or that Medicare recipients would lose their benefits is reasonable dialogue, no? In fact, this is healthcare for everyone, even people like you. When it passes, you might want to stop in and have that blood pressure checked.

An investigation into trust-fund management, the persistence of polite politics and the annoying habits of anonymous sources By Daniel Hirsch

eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on the cover of the Press Democrat 10 times now,â&#x20AC;? Exchange Bank chairman William Reinking says with apparent exasperation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tired of it, and the community is tired of it.â&#x20AC;? Reinking, who came out of semiretirement last year to help the troubled bank, refers to the yearlong story of Exchange Bank and its major stockholder, the Doyle Trust, which has provided millions of dollars in scholarships to Santa Rosa Junior College for the past 60 years. Last September, when the bank announced it was unable to pay dividends to its shareholders due to bad real estate loans,

the charitable trust and the scholarship were thrown into jeopardy. To make up the shortfall, the SRJC launched the Bridging the Doyle campaign, a valiant $200,000 fundraising effort to aid students unable to receive traditional Doyle Scholarships for the 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2010 academic year. Exchange Bank has since returned to profitability, announcing $2.4 million for the 2009 second quarter. Assuredly, the community has likely grown tired of banking dramas, national and local alike. There might not be much more to say. Then one quiet Tuesday morning, the phone rang. On the line, a man identified himself as a concerned citizen and practicing trust attorney. He wanted to share some

professional opinions. In order not to implicate other members of his practice, he remained anonymous, refusing to tell us his name. He called the Bohemian office number only once and provided no contact information. Instead, he asked for this reporterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cell phone number. Attempts to return his calls connected only to a deactivated voice mailbox. He also had an irritating habit of hanging up in midsentence and calling on the weekend. Given the somewhat cloak-and-danger nature of the whole thing, he earned the alias â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deep Doyle.â&#x20AC;? Taking tips from anonymous sources is no small thing for any publication. However, the Doyle Scholarship has enabled nearly three generations of students to & %

go to college, about 115,000 receiving some $76 million over the years. The program has established SRJC as one of the premier community colleges in the nation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pride of an entire community and certainly the touchstone for the bank, yet its existence remains under threat, and payments for Exchange Bank shareholders are still suspended indefinitely. The stakes are certainly high. We decided to listen to what Deep Doyle had to say. With each call, he made more sense and raised a few good points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a charitable trust. The primary duty is to protect the beneficiary. One could argue in this case itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not providing that protection,â&#x20AC;? Deep Doyle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has a higher fiduciary duty to the scholarship than it does to anything else.â&#x20AC;? Frank P. Doyle, founder of Exchange Bank, established the Doyle Trust upon his death in 1948. He left 50.39 percent of his controlling interest of the bank in a perpetual trust, with the purpose of funding the scholarship program as well as Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Doyle Park. The trust remains the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest shareholder and is managed by three members of the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors. According to Deep Doyle, those trustees have the highest responsibility to protecting the recipients of the trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding. Unlike a typical private stock portfolio, the Doyle Trust is not diversified with many different types of assets. It owns only stock in Exchange Bank and was originally established to operate that way. Deep Doyle argued that if that clause of the founding trust declaration were challenged under a law called the Uniform Prudent Investor Act (UPIA), a court could rule that the trust needs to diversify its portfolio. Diversification could mean increased protection from future economic crises affecting the bank. If the bank were unable to pay dividends in the future, the trust could theoretically get revenue from other sources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trust document written 60 years ago. You have a responsibility to uphold good standards of prudent investment of today,â&#x20AC;? Deep Doyle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No prudent investor would recommend holding only one type of stock.â&#x20AC;? The UPIA explicitly requires portfolio diversification for the sound financial management of a trust. Essentially, to best aid a trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beneficiary, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put all your eggs in one basket. To examine Deep Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims, we consulted several local trust attorneys, who generally agreed on our informantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reading of the UPIA, but differed on its potential application. Though she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say anything definitive without seeing the actual trust declaration, MaryClare Lawrence of Santa Rosa firm Conner, Lawrence & Rodney explained that â&#x20AC;&#x153;there are some things more important than the prudent investment standard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to give them anything,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence says of Frank P. Doyle and SRJC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But he did, and he gets to put the terms on it. When we come right down to it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still Mr. Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money.â&#x20AC;? Representatives of the trust affirm the inflexibility and legitimacy of its founderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original framework. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Doyle Trust is a specific purpose trust,â&#x20AC;? Doyle Trust attorney Kim Marois

says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trust mandates the holding of [Exchange Bank] stockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the continual holding of that stock. There are other trusts like it.â&#x20AC;? Despite its status as a charitable nonprofit, for Marois and the trust she represents, Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specific wish to establish a solely Exchange Bank stock portfolio is a definite and firm provision to maintain local ownership of the bank. Reinking, on behalf of the bank, agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the filing, and the court approved it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of trusts that do have just one stock, some have been successful and some havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t posed a problem.â&#x20AC;? For 59 of 60 years of its existence, the undiversified portfolio of the trust hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a problem. Of course, when the bank stopped paying dividends this year, the trust lost its sole source of funding. When asked whether SRJC had considered challenging the provisions of the trust that binds it from diversification, college president Dr. Robert Agrella replied with an unyielding and resounding no. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going down a path Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m choosing not even to respond to,â&#x20AC;? Agrella said when asked about potential challenges to the trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial management. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had no discussions about doing what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re suggesting we do.â&#x20AC;? Agrella also stated that the SRJC Doyle Scholarship Fund is currently unrepresented by any trust attorney. As the major beneficiary of a multimillion dollar trust, this seems somewhat unusual. The collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general faith in the financial institution and its main shareholder is simply based on their strong past relationship. To local attorney Lawrence, the amicable tone of the circumstances surrounding the trust reflects the general good nature of Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the neat things about this county is you can find high-level business deals still taken care of politely,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and that people in this county tend to give each other the benefit of the doubt.â&#x20AC;? The SRJCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of student financial services Kris Shear is certainly willing to give the bank and the trust that benefit saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lack of dividends was part of a much larger economic event that was unpredictable. We do anticipate those dividends returning.â&#x20AC;? That assurance comes with some amount of faith and trust. Though Exchange Bank has returned to profitability and its leadership stays optimistic that it will eventually be able to pay dividends, the fact remains that nobody knows when. The robustness of the trust and its beneficiary still wait in financial limbo. Perhaps the Doyle free ride has ended. Agrella is aggressively optimistic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been rewarded in the past and will continue to be rewarded by them,â&#x20AC;? he says. After all, bad times are hardly new. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frank P. Doyle was well aware of adverse economic times when he signed his will,â&#x20AC;? Marois reminds, explaining that during the Great Depression, which is â&#x20AC;&#x153;spoken of in the same breath as our current Great Recession,â&#x20AC;? Exchange Bank suspended dividends to stockholders for nearly 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing is forever,â&#x20AC;? Reinking says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anything that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve planned. Nor did anybody else. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done for this community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people felt that they weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re entitled to it, but, you know, it was free money.â&#x20AC;?

How corporations have immigration policy right where they want it By Jason Schwartz

0

s Americans are losing their mediocre, fairly crappy-paying jobs left and right (the U.S. Department of Labor reports 247,000 jobs lost in July alone), the choices they find laid out before them are getting ever slimmer. High-priced spin doctors can try to paint a sunny, happy face on the economic climate, but the real outlook is grim, and getting grimmer. Job training sounds great, but that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always the case. Too often, trainingprogram participants emerge hundreds or thousands of dollars lighter with an irrelevant skill set and a paper certificate. Some training is actually just recruitment for a corporation whose goal is to pay the lowest wages it can. Here, a trainee gets the skills necessary for a low-paying, shortlived job, if he is lucky. There are a lot of people in line for that very same job, and many are willing to do it even cheaper. Consider a common scenario many businesses face: the domestic price of raw material for a given item is often greater than the finished imported productâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price. This illustrates a striking trade imbalance, outsourced and perpetuated by the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading corporations. These are the same corporations who lobby for, and succeed in passing, every piece of legislation they need to facilitate their business agendas. But wait, what about the big boom in clean- and green-tech markets? Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there emerging, sustainable business models that need many new workers? According to the Fortune 500, the top five revenue growth industries in the United States in 2008 were oil and gas, mining and crude oil, petroleum refining, engineering and construction, with pipelines ranking No. 1. So thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the national focus, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the money is, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what dictates policy. After all, business dictates policy like the chicken and the egg. Nothing has a chance at legislation without a well-funded lobby behind it. In existing government process, monetary support is the only real factor effecting policy. This monetary support doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come from voting; it comes from corporations whose profits primarily depend on bleeding the American consumer, and

secondarily bleeding anyone who has any blood left to bleed. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;customersâ&#x20AC;? are actually targets and victims. This is how policy in America is dictated, and it is not a democratic process. The downward pressure on wages is real and not temporary. The number of people looking for work is not going down, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going up. The populations of California, the United States and the world are growing, not shrinking. The fact is that simple economic principles like supply and demand are as real as our need for water and oxygen, and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away. This means that as long as there are more workers than work, wages will continue to fall. This is great news if you are in the top percent of the corporate class. Most corporations require a steady stream of cheap labor to maintain existing revenues, and cheap labor can be the antidote for a corporation hemorrhaging cash, assets and total value. For some, cheap labor is the difference between operating a business vs. closing up shop. A steady stream of cheap labor can also be essential in negotiations, like when a labor pool begins to realize that wages wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay for the costs of living. Representatives for labor will start making demands, and vocally unhappy workers are bad publicity. So make way for a new batch of labor, dying for a chance at low wages. Indeed, workers can age and get injured, and both conditions are terrible for profit margins. Lowered production simply will not stack up when the beans get counted. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to see how the lack of an immigration policy directly puts money into corporate coffers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also easy to see how that money finds its way into government via the lobby systemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;certainly no secret. And if anybody still really believes that their single individual vote has an influence, go ask your leading lobbyist how much your vote is worth to him. Be prepared to listen to a hearty laugh.

Business dictates policy like the chicken and the egg.

Ken Wells follows the money when supes move to sell citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights By Juliane Poirier

F

hy should anyone stop Sonoma County supervisors from selling a smelly dump for a few fragrant million in garbage royalties? Because the sale removes policy control from citizens and sells it to a corporation. I asked sustainability consultant Ken Wells, who managed Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s integrated waste from 1992 to 2008, to explain the sale of Mecham Road landfill and its satellite drop-off points to Republic Services of Phoenix, an Arizona-based company. Turns out this proposed deal, up for a vote on Sept. 29, is a stinker. Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed sale brings in a corporation that determines fees for garbage service, how recycling is done and the degree to which waste reduction occurs. It places Sonoma County ratepayers, and the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wastereduction goals, at the mercy of a corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news and bad news,â&#x20AC;? Wells explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good news is that Republic is offering the county and the cities a place to take our garbage for the next 20 years. The sales pitch from the county is that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about what your rates are going to be for those 20 years either, and that when the landfill reaches capacity, the hefty expense and logistics of capping it off, known as closure liability, will be taken care of by Republic.â&#x20AC;? In exchange, the county is offering Republic ownership of the waste system, including drop-off sites (called transfer stations) at Guerneville, Annapolis, Healdsburg and Sonoma, plus the management of the landfill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The economics of this deal is what the county hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been telling us,â&#x20AC;? Wells says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have not been talking about the assets.â&#x20AC;? The first asset is called flow control; all the cities and the unincorporated areas have the authority to tell the haulers where to take the trash. Altogether, this flow control is worth about $30 million annually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can get loans based on that income,â&#x20AC;? Wells explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the deal is that the cities are supposed to sign a contract to guarantee Republic this flow of

$30 million per year gross for 20 years.â&#x20AC;? The second asset is county income. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For garbage delivered to the landfill,â&#x20AC;? Wells says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the county gets $9 per ton. One other part of the deal that is causing everyone a lot of heartburn is called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;put or pay.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Republic wants to insure a minimum profit, so 70 percent of our base year is paid for whether we produce it or not. If we drop to 60 percent, we pay 70 percent. It looks like Republic will get a minimum guaranteed profit of $100 million in the first 20 years, maybe sooner, if they can collect garbage from out of the county.â&#x20AC;? How could Republic make all those millions putting trash in our closed landfill? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are actually 9 million cubic yards of capacity at the landfill, which would serve the county easily for the next 20 years,â&#x20AC;? Wells says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only reason weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not putting more garbage in the landfill is that the Regional Water Quality Control Board has restricted expansion permits. If Republic can convince the RWQCB to reopen Mecham Road, they can make an overlap of $600 million if they can fill it up at $100 per ton.â&#x20AC;? Wells says the RWQCB used the leaky liner as an excuse to shut down Mecham Road largely because the county was not able to develop a working relationship with the board or to gain the trust and cooperation of the cities.â&#x20AC;? There is a win-win alternative to what the supervisors are proposing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of selling, the county and the cities could band together and create a joint powers agency with shared control and ownership of waste assets and liabilities. And this agency already exists,â&#x20AC;? Wells says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Sonoma County Waste Management Agency with city-county memberships and the ideal location for this responsibility. This agency can retain our f low-control assets, from which we can get the loans for the liabilities and expansion of the landfill. We would contract out the services to private operators but retain control of the policies.â&#x20AC;? Policy-making belongs to the people, Wells warns, and should never be sold.

>]cWT1^X[ Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tea Fountain aims to grind beans to dust By David Sason

8

n downtown Mill Valley, the locals are serious about their bodies and what they put in them, from the joggers beneath the shadow of the great Mt. Tam to the throngs of Whole Foods devotees. No wonder that further down Miller Avenue, in between a bike shop and a boutique, sits Tea Fountain, the longstanding Marin store offering literally hundreds of affordable loose gourmet and artisan teas from around the world, and dozens of accessories for any purchase. One might think the Tea Fountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s posh, new highend location would better suit its connoisseur clientele than its longtime Northgate Mall spot, but owner Rover Benecke couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disagree more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing against coffee drinkers, but tea people in general are sophisticated to begin with,â&#x20AC;? he says with a smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when we moved here, we brought all of our regular customers with us, some from as far away as Palo Alto.â&#x20AC;? Much more than just a favorable alternative to coffee, tea has been on the rise on the West

Coast over the past decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up and down the coast, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now as much tea consumed as on the East Coast and Canada,â&#x20AC;? says Benecke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, with the information now available through the internet, peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes are suddenly opened to a beverage thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around for 200 years.â&#x20AC;? While still a youthful and sprightly middleaged man, Benecke has already spent about 40 years in the tea business. Born and raised in Hamburg, Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the largest tea harbor in the world since the spice trade routesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Benecke began his lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work as a young consumer with precocious taste buds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was about 19 years old and I discovered Darjeeling teas, which are the Champagne of teas,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find new ones, since I was living in the right city I contacted wholesalers and got into buying tea wholesale in small amounts, only one or two different teas at a time.â&#x20AC;? Beneckeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence among sellers was so constant that a business proposition was inevitable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was 24, one of the

wholesalers said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, young man, if I give you a hundred teas of your choice, now that you know teas, and you start paying me back for this stock half a year from now, would you open a tea business?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was January 1975, and in April I had my own tea business, my first retail store.â&#x20AC;? After a decade and a half as an international tea broker, Benecke fell in love with Marin during a trip to the Zen Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green Gulch Farm. Before too long, the new transplant found more than just a spiritual niche to be filled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really places where you could buy quality teas,â&#x20AC;? says Benecke, who currently lives in Sausalito. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually it was combined with coffee and spices, and then all of a sudden, specialty stores started. I thought it was a nice time to start the retail business again.â&#x20AC;? With the new millennium came Tea Fountain, but the new venture could never be effective as a f ly-by-night operation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are all kinds of tea businesses opening, and some of them are already closing, because &, THE BOHEMIAN

it is a serious business,â&#x20AC;? Benecke says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tea business, just like the wine connoisseur business, is very particular. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just open it up and put a hundred different wines in the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to really know about it. â&#x20AC;? Further complicating the industry is the fact that tea metamorphoses even more rapidly than wine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teas are like little children in kindergarten: you think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got them under control, then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new season and you have new crops, and the blends you have designed all of a sudden donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit anymore,â&#x20AC;? Benecke chuckles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taste the same, the character changes based on climate, elevation.â&#x20AC;? This is where Beneckeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expert palate comes into play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get samples of different estates to find the ones that you really like, because you know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be different than it was last year,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With some teas, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even different than it was the last season, just three or four months ago.â&#x20AC;? The fleeting nature of all delectable tea behooves customers to act promptly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, we have a very good crop of the 2009 Castleton Estate, DJ 2, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only about 220 pounds available on the world market,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two days ago we received 20 percent of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the world market. So people buy larger amountsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one pound, two, three, four. Just as with a certain harvest of wine, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just get one case, you get four cases and put it in your wine cellar.â&#x20AC;? The current roster includes the popular Summer in the City, #49, a popular base for hot or iced tea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What makes it a great iced tea is that the tea base doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn cloudy when you hit it with ice,â&#x20AC;? Benecke says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a new herbal tea that people started to like called the Sherwood Forest.â&#x20AC;? The work certainly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop when the tea is shipped from Asia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since we import it ourselves, every six to eight weeks a ton of tea has to be distributed, packaged into different sizes, because we do wholesale to other tea vendors, hotels and restaurants, and even make special blends for spas,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The week is all about tea and then quality controlâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and we have more than 300 different teas.â&#x20AC;? Despite his lack of formal horticulture training, there are few in the world as educated on the subject as Benecke. His four decades of hands-on experience began in the European laboratories for testing, grading and pricing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a much sought-after trainer and consultant for restaurants and manufacturers around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A company comes up with a porcelain teapot with a fancy design, and I say it will never work because the spout is too high and the moment you tilt it, it will come out of the lid before it comes out of the spout,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have the feeling that most of the tea accessories are designed by coffee drinkers.â&#x20AC;? Though a thorough businessman, Benecke often offers his singular services pro bono. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be another job, industrial consulting, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get paid for this,â&#x20AC;?

he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My payoff is once the product is ready, then I have a tea accessory that I can purchase and offer on the market, along with some teas.â&#x20AC;? Beneckeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generosity extends directly to retail customers as well, and has gained him a reputation as a welcoming, inclusive educator. Aside from the hefty free samples of specialty teas, a discussion of proper storage is itself a fascinating discovery.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The tea business, just like the wine connoisseur business, is very particular.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The perfect temperature to store tea is about 68 to 70 degrees, and if you store them right, you age them as well as you do certain wines,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our basic advice is that every tea should be stored below stove-top level, where the temperature doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go up and down as often or as drastically. People put spices on top of the stove, and three months later every spice is dead.â&#x20AC;? Refinement without exclusivity seems to have aided Beneckeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more education you can give in an easy way without trying to sell anything to the customer, the more they obviously trust you and the more theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested to find out more,â&#x20AC;? he asserts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And once they get to this kind of grade of good tea, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way back.â&#x20AC;? Despite a few wisecracks here and there, Benecke is not opposed to drinking coffee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have three to four cups a year because I like the smell, especially espresso,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, we have a few customers who are coffee connoisseurs, and they roast their own coffee and say after two days you cannot use it anymore.â&#x20AC;? The conversation, of course, returns to his true love, this time about the false myths about high caffeine concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The caffeine in coffee triggers your cardio system, but tea has theine, which triggers your central nervous system and makes your brain fire on a more efficient level,â&#x20AC;? Benecke says excitedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have kids, and a medical condition doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prohibit this, give them a cup of tea in the morning and fire up their brain.â&#x20AC;? He chuckles but maintains strong eye contact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly,â&#x20AC;? he says. Like he said earlier, the tea business is a serious business.

740;8=65>>3B aughter may be the best medicine, but healthy food is the best form of healing. Since 2006, the Ceres Community Project has been committed to this idea of food as part of the cycle of renewal from illness. The project is named for Ceres, the Roman goddess of grain. As a symbol of motherhood, she represents the source of nourishment for the community.

L

Keeping in line with this philosophy, the nonproďŹ t organization teaches teens from over 17 schools throughout Sonoma County to prepare meals each week for individuals who endure such life-threatening illnesses as cancer, heart disease or multiple sclerosis. Volunteers appropriately dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;delivery angelsâ&#x20AC;? then distribute the wholesome meals to the familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes. By the end of this year, the Ceres Community Project will have provided a total of some 45,000 meals to residents suffering from health issues since the project began. As the executive director of the project, Cathryn Couch believes the organization is a continual process of learning, teaching and giving back to those in need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about what we can accomplish when we pull our resources,â&#x20AC;? says Couch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids [involved] in the project know that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cooking for people whose lives are on the line. There is a profound lesson there for kids in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world to understand that link between food and health.â&#x20AC;? Committed not only to the well-being of its clients, the project solely utilizes organic food to support local farmers and ecosystems. No empty calories or sugar are found in the mealsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;only fresh, nutrient-rich food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with cancer have a lot of toxins in their body from various treatments like chemotherapy,â&#x20AC;? Couch says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It changes their taste buds and without solid nutrition people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have what they need in order to rebuild and heal.

All but hidden behind acres of self-storage and light industry in northwest Santa Rosa, Copain Custom Crush provides a home to the landless, and the low overhead that makes 600-case brands economically feasible for new generation winemakers like Suzanne Hagins. Hagins left the South Carolina restaurant scene in 1998 for harvest in Burgundy; her lilting Charleston drawl hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t left her yet. Sold on Pinot Noir, she worked in Russian River and Anderson Valley cellars before launching tiny Lutea. Grapes are sourced from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards, a subtly but emphatically stated principle thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming less crunchy by the day, and her wine is made here. The single-clone 2007 Los Carneros Pinot Noir ($35) has a ďŹ&#x201A;oral nose of violet with leather overtones, fresh plum ďŹ&#x201A;avor and is eminently table-friendly (these balanced wines exhibit their diverting charm in between meals, too). With an aroma of pretty red fruit, the 2007 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($35) also shows a complex, vegetable-bouillon take on the genre. Delicious red cherry, plum ďŹ&#x201A;avors lead to a ďŹ ne ďŹ nish. Hagins laughs that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pegged as â&#x20AC;&#x153;that girl who makes the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;feminine Pinot,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? by way of introducing her 2007 Four Barrel Pinot Noir ($40). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smoky and masculine, for sure, full of blueberry and black cherry with notes of herb and menthol, but bookended by rounded tannin, it ultimately ďŹ nishes satin-smooth. Haginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Horse & Plow is a team effort with her husband, and encompasses other organically farmed varietals. The 2008 Grenache ($25), with an irrepressible nose of wild raspberry and cedar that jumps from the glass, shows the varietal at its fragrant, soft and quaffable best. While Jack the dog surely wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind more visitors if they threw him a bung, Lutea wines can more easily be found on one of several dozen local restaurant wine lists. There must be something about Lutea, if only the evocative, feminine name after all, that initially interests diners; after that, they can scarcely be disappointed. Lutea Pinot Noir, 707.592.0568.

FT[R^\Tc^=Tf1^WT\XP Your home to wealth, prosperity and serfdom for the 21st century By P. Joseph Potocki We are the modern equivalent of the ancient citystates of Athens and Sparta. California has the ideas of Athens and the power of Sparta. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger California is like an artificial limb the rest of the country doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really need. You can quote me on that. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Saul Bellow

?

erhaps Schwarzenegger and Bellow divined whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now painfully clear to everyone: Arnieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s California is HumptyDumpty, the Hindenburg and some kind of sociopolitical Holocaust all rolled up into one overstuffed exploding burrito. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ungovernable, near criminally impotent and outdated mess. Remedying Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woes requires draconian cutbacks to essential services and infrastructure. Anyway, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we are told, grand illusions to Athens and Sparta notwithstanding. Others insist the fix lies with

the Feds, and that the U.S. Treasury needs to bail California out at the begrudging consent of Congress. But another, still largely muted scenario is slowly gaining traction. Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two megaregions, the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California, may fulfill the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s histrionic vision in an entirely unintended fashion. They well may reinvent themselves as the Athens and the Sparta of an emerging city-state-dominated worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d leave California to do so.

Little Big â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Un To be fair, California never was truly governable. Long before it housed one of every 200 souls alive on the planet today, California was a mulligan stew of incompatibly brutal self-interests. The discovery of gold instantly transformed California from a sleepy backwater frontier into a madcap magnet for the wildest, freest, most antisocial and avaricious individuals each corner of the world could ever want to say good riddance to. And so it remains today. Just

as a powerful economic elite began to emerge, divergent regional and personal interests were already hip-deep in state secessionist conspiracies, duels to the death and all manner of off-color connivery. Things have always been bad here, but Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ungovernability has only plummeted from terrible then, to untenable today. California remains the most populous, least represented state in the union. Politically speaking, consider this: Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House Congressional delegation outnumbers those of 21 states combined, yet California has but two senators representing it in the upper chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;exactly as many as Wyoming, a state with a quarter of a million fewer people than reside in the 47 square miles of San Francisco. These 21 mostly red states send filibuster numbers to the U.S. Senate. A lot of the legislation they chloroform could benefit both California and the Bay Area. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the stream of federal tax revenues heading to D.C., dwarfing what California receives in return. But no matter the unfair taxes and machinations of the U.S. Senate, the bottom line is this: weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just too damn big to be a mere '+ THE BOHEMIAN

state. Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population equals Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, with Ireland thrown in for good measure. Tally up the populations of 57 sovereign nations, and their combined sum total is less than that of our state. In fact, Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population exceeds that ofâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;count â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em!â&#x20AC;&#x201D;189 nations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often said that were it a sovereign country, Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy would rank it anywhere from the fifth to the eighth largest in the world, depending on where France is on any given day. Impressive as that is, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fraction of the story. In fact, were our Bay Area a nation, it would rank as number 18. So, what if an inertia-bound California should break into pieces? In a 2007 international report titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rise of the Mega-Region,â&#x20AC;? researchers from the United States, Canada and Sweden found that rampant globalization eliminates the traditional need to rely upon oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nation-state for economic markets, supports and protections, thereby making even dominant nations like the United States open to sovereign fragmentation. Subsequently, once jealously guarded national borders fade to dim recollections of pretranscorporate yesteryears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Capital can now be allocated freely around the globe,â&#x20AC;? they write, â&#x20AC;&#x153;seeking maximum returns wherever they may be. Even labor, particularly highly creative and productive labor, can be reallocated globally in a way that would once have been impractical.â&#x20AC;? The report ranks â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nor-Calâ&#x20AC;? 14th in worldwide economic muscle. Their Nor-Cal includes the sweet center of the Central Valley, shotgun-wedded to the entire Bay Area. But Nor-Cal sounds more like a diet beverage than a region, and the San Francisco Bay Area is as worn a label as California itself, so henceforth weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give our mega-region a spiffy new sobriquet. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call it New Bohemia.

Megalopolises Sean Randolph is the president of the Bay Area Council, a partnership of business, labor, government and higher education. Randolph points out that New Bohemiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enormous lead in worldwide venture capital is almost eight times per capita that of second place Singapore, while surpassing New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 times over. The Bay Area Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own nine-county version of New Bohemia contains the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest concentration of leading research universities, matched with an equally high concentration of topflight national, corporate and independent laboratories. In addition to that, it leads the nation in Top 10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;ranked engineering, law, business and medicine graduate programs. New Bohemia doubles the U.S. average in economic productivity, and boasts the highest per capita economy in the entire world. There are 40 could-be sovereign megalopolises worldwide, the prerequisite being each generate at least $100 billion in annual revenues. These city-state-like units, which make up just 18 percent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population, produce fully two-thirds of its global economic activity and nearly 85 percent of its technological and scientific innovations.

The suggestion is, of course, that each of these 40 megaregions is poised to evolve into 21st-century city-states. The logic is that citystates, being far more economically focused, compact and efficient, will inevitably replace nation-states and empires, like the United States and the former Soviet Union. These megaregions are described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;integrated sets of cities and their surrounding suburban hinterlands across which labor and capital can be reallocated at very low cost.â&#x20AC;?

Fiefdoms, Etc. Envision a stateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or even a sovereign nationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;extending from the Monterey Peninsula up through Sonoma County, east to the Altamont pass and west to the Pacific. This New Bohemia is an 8-millionperson-, 11-county Bay Area contado formed from the outlying suburbs, exurbs and rural hinterlands which supply the urban Bay Area core with talent, resources and materiel. This New Bohemia still has a population larger than nine states and the District of Columbia combined. While these nine states make up well over one quarter of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land-mass, this New Bohemia is a megaregion and a sovereign city-state. Its fortunes have increasingly little to do with whatever remains of California, and even less to do with the former United States of America. Lest we paint an inordinately appealing picture, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consider downsides to citystatedom. First, megaregion city-states risk transforming into Medieval-like fiefdoms dominated by economic elites. As did the Medicis control the Republic of Florence and the Borgias, Venice, New Bohemian billionaires would concentrate and consolidate power within a much smaller, far more malleable geographic and governmental unit than ever before. Their power base would no longer be diluted by the demands of an American imperium. Freed of empire, their enhanced powers could be severely leveraged, advantaging the interests of the transcontinental corporations these elites control. In other words, emerging city-states, brilliantly promising as high-tech incubators, innovators and cross-discipline dynamos, may serve primarily to enhance the powers and fortunes of the already too rich and too mighty. The March 2008 issue of Forbes magazine listed 47 billionaires who call the Bay Area home. A Forbes article titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greediest Citiesâ&#x20AC;? places the real estate that would become New Bohemia at the very pinnacle of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greed heap. According to Forbes, the San Francisco Bay Area has the â&#x20AC;&#x153;highest concentration of the super-wealthy relative to other locationsâ&#x20AC;? in the entire nation. This wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be so bad were it not for an ever-growing disparity in wealth and incomes. A report published this past June by the California Budget Project details just how severe the inequities have become. The report recounts state figures placing Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal income at close to $65 billion between the years 2006 and 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A full 30 percent of AGI (adjusted gross income) gains went to the top 1 percent of taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? according to the report.

Crunching numbers even finer, it concludes, “This means that the top 1 percent of taxpayers received 25 times their proportionate share of AGI in 2007, while middle-income taxpayers received half of their proportionate share of income.” Author Paul Starobin confirms suspicions of enhanced class warfare should city-states ascend. In his new book After America: Narratives for the Next Global Age, Starobin seems to view these matters through a social Darwinian lens when he writes, “There would be tremendous opportunities for global elites—for architects, artists, business executives, university presidents, political leaders, global-health specialists and others who tend to live in big cities and who already are starting to think of themselves as a superclass.” And for those who don’t pretend to the superclass? One frightening prospect is that an updated medievalism would advance itself, with accelerating wealth and opportunities proffered to the elite superclass, and neo-serfdom pressed upon the masses. All this could be dressed up in fashionable propagandistic apparel and trotted out with great fanfare by elitecontrolled media whores. Think Roman bread and circuses. One can envision, particularly here in the relatively progressive Bay Area, that by resurrecting the ancient custom of noblesse oblige plebes would feast on generous crumbs swept from their lordship’s table. These might come in the form of universal single-payer healthcare, free higher education, the right to marry whomsoever one chooses, repealing drug prohibitions—hell, they might go so far as to guarantee food on every table and a roof over every head. Such gifts do, of course, come with price tags, though they be shilled as free of charge. Underlying such programs would be a pragmatic rationale having little to do with munificence. These programs would, in fact, be designed with a demand for higher purpose. In order that it may flourish, New Bohemia will require at the very least a steady trickle of educated immigrant minds and fit, disciplined bodies. New Bohemia will, after all, be competing with scores of worldwide city-states in the global marketplace. The more generous and enlightened the ruling class portrays itself, the better it is for business. What better way to attract talent than to guarantee unlimited educational opportunities and a comfortable domestic existence? As any mafia don would say, “Don’t take it personally. It’s just good business.” As long as the plebes stay out of meaningful political discourse, the facade of prosperity will obscure the underlying reality: that denizens of such a construct remain happy serfs, entirely at the mercy of their corporate masters.

Secede! This nation’s history is rife with secessionist movements, from the comical down to the tragedy of the Civil War. Political economist Gar Alperovitz, writing a New York Times op-ed in 2007 asserts that “the United States is almost certainly

too big to be a meaningful democracy.” Moreover, Alperovitz writes, “Sooner or later, a profound, probably regional, decentralization of the federal system may be all but inevitable.” A Zogby poll taken last year showed more than one in five Americans believe that “any state or region has the right to peaceably secede and become an independent republic.” Even New Bohemia has its antecedent. Evidence the 1846 Bear Flag Republic. William B. Ide, the singularly sober and duly elected president of the soon-to-be-aborted republic, did nonetheless manage to put pen to paper before U.S. forces marched into the town of Sonoma. Ide proclaimed “that a government to be prosperous and happifying in its tendency must originate with its people who are friendly to its existence.” Hardly Shakespeare, but Ide’s sentiment makes perfect sense. While we Americans tend to believe our nation is imperishable, more than half the 200-plus nations in existence today formed as breakaways following WW II. Perhaps we are unique, but in those many cases governments indisputably failed to “happify” their people. Some claim the same is already happening here. While ideas lead to struggles, and struggles to new nations, many more do not. Ecotopia, a country comprising Northern California, Oregon and Washington, was a lucid and wonder-filled 1970s countercultural pipe dream drawn from an Ernest Callenbach novel of the same name. Another, the declared state of Jefferson, straddles Northern California and Southern Oregon. In contrast to Ecotopia’s ultragreen philosophy, Jefferson would secede largely because the two states refuse to mine local copper deposits. Jeffersonians claim this “gross neglect by California and Oregon deprives us of necessary roads to bring out the copper ore.” In an article published in the San Francisco Chronicle back in 2003, former Wall Street Journal writer and New York Times columnist G. Pascal Zachary addressed the issue of a New Bohemia forthrightly. “We, the people of the Bay Area,” he writes, “need to leave the United States.” It is Zachary’s fanciful belief that New Bohemians are being held back against our will by an alien civilization. His remedy is to “require cultural and social selfdetermination.” Zachary concludes his piece with hope-filled insight regarding national defense and security. “The United States would surely insist on a demilitarized Bay Nation, but such a condition would gladly be accepted by our people.”

s for now, many questions need to be answered. How long can we afford to keep California on its fiscal respirator? Do we just let the burrito explode and see how many counties stick to the wall? Does California devolve into a cluster of autonomous regions, or does it instead seek its sovereign independence? Or is the last best solution to consolidate California’s powerhouse megaregions and break off our own New Bohemia from both state and union, turning our gaze westward, reassuming our birthright as Mistress of the Pacific, our backs against an old dream that became a noble experiment once called America?

F

eary, perhaps, of trying to oppress fickle, headstrong teenage girls, the fashion industry has apparently moved on to an easier target: dudes. In recent weeks, the New York Times, Time magazine, ABC News and various other media outlets have all featured enthusiastic coverage of mirdles. They eliminate inches in seconds, the coverage advises. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re surprisingly comfortable. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re flying off the shelves at trend-setting retailers. What, you may be asking, is a mirdle? A mirdle is a male girdle, a constrictive garment designed to streamline a fashion-conscious manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem areasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his too-generous love handles, his silhouette-ruining belly. Mirdle manufacturers obviously never refer to their products as mirdles, because girdles

The makers of the RipT Fusion mirdle call their garment a â&#x20AC;&#x153;classic menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undershirt injected with steroids.â&#x20AC;? So if you were thinking that mirdles sound a little girly, well, relax, tough guy. Mirdles are totally masculine. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not girdles. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re T-shirts with very, very firm handshakes. The high-performance, steroid-injected verbiage is needed, one suspects, because waif like metrosexuals who have no trouble slipping into their junkie-fit skinny jeans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need mirdles.

Miller Draft with their bros as they watch the game on ESPN but still want to look good in their striped shirts when they hit the clubs at night in search of fresh f lesh. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ironic, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? For years, Madison Avenue has been bombarding impressionable young lunkheads with an incredibly limiting and destructive view of masculinity. To express your essential maleness, Madison Avenue insists, you must eat triple cheeseburgers laden with enough strips of bacon to reconstruct an entire pig, and spend hours perfecting the art of beating up tiny cartoon adversaries or pretending to dunk on Shaq. To affirm your male autonomy, you must choose 12-packs of bland American beer over hot and compliant blondes whenever such decisions present themselves. But despite your beer-swilling, burger-eating, videogame-playing lifestyle, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take refuge in shapeless dad jeans or sacklike Tommy Bahama camp shirts.

You’ve got to look good in fitted polos and stretch twill chinos. Thus, the recent proliferation of torso-enhancing undershirts, one-piece body trimmers, waist eliminators, highcompression singlets and extreme chestconcealer tanks. The makers of mirdles position their products as revolutionary, liberating devices: finally, men get to take advantage of the constrictive, fat-binding garments that women have been using to present an idealized image of themselves for centuries!

But will today’s dudes really fall for such rhetoric? Forty years ago, in the autumn of 1968, the members of a group called New York Radical Women protested at the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City by dumping sacrificial girdles, padded bras and high heels into a “freedom” trash can. “No more girdles, no more pain, no more trying to hold the fat in vain!” they chanted as they shed themselves of the “instruments of torture” that enslaved them to “ludicrous beauty standards.” Like the members of the New York Radical Women, men have traditionally associated underwear with cultural as well as physical constriction. The laid-back iconoclast who lives life outside the dictates of society typically favors boxers over briefs. The most autonomous, most empowered choice is to go without underwear entirely, i.e., to “free-ball” or “go commando.” Several generations ago, most men decided that even soft cotton undershirts were somehow cramping their style, and today the planet’s archetypal dude’s dude, actor and semi-nudist Matthew McConaughey, has repeatedly demonstrated that it is possible to survive for weeks at a time, in virtually any setting, without any torsoencumbering garment whatsoever. And yet at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, at least, men are reportedly lining up to pay as much as $119 a pop for an Equmen Core Precision™ T-shirt. This seems like an awful lot to pay for an undershirt—especially a clingy, emotionally manipulative undershirt that squeezes itself around your stomach and intestines like a hungry boa constrictor and claims to support you while sucking the life out of your self-esteem. But whoever said that men were rational creatures?

Dale Wassermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last play to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Premiereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Ross Valley Players By David Templeton

?

laywright Dale Wasserman, in an interview given not long before his death at age 94 last December, was asked if the act of writing ever gave him satisfaction. His answer was no. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since I work in the dramatic field,â&#x20AC;? Wasserman explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;my satisfaction does not come from the writing at all. It comes from seeing the production of what I have written. After that, I go away and forget all about it.â&#x20AC;? With this typically frank remark, the curmudgeonly Wassermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death becomes particularly tragic, as it means he never had the satisfaction of seeing his final work brought to the stage. Titled Premiere, the wittily comic play will receive its own premiere this weekend, as the Ross Valley Players become the first company outside of Wassermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home state of Arizona to produce the show. Wasserman is best known for his stage adaptation of Ken Keseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s One Flew Over the Cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest and the musical Man of La Mancha, adapted from Cervantesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Don Quixote. The former has been translated into over 40 languages and is considered one of the most enduring modern dramas to hit

the stage, and the latter, with numerous awards including a 1966 Tony for Best Musical, ran for 2,328 performances in its initial Broadway run, and has been playing on some stage, somewhere in the world, ever since. Sadly, the newspaper obituaries only cited these two plays as the playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic legacy, omitting the dozens of screenplays, television scripts, plays and musicals that also bear his name. A voracious reader with an enormous sense of curiosity and wonder about the world around him, Wasserman never stopped writing, though none of his lessfamous works made the same impression on the world as Cuckoo and La Mancha. This clearly annoyed the man, as evidenced by his comment on his own website (www. dalewasserman.com): â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is customary for an author to list all his credits. I do not intend to do so. It would not only remind me of my age but also of my failures. It is well known, I think, that I wrote Man of La Mancha and the stage version of One Flew Over the Cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest, two plays which have spread like pandemics. But lately I feel more like their midwife than their creator. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather call attention to the new and recent works which are yowling for attention, including some not yet seen on any stage.â&#x20AC;? Among these is Premiere, the story of a scholarly playwright best known for his comedies, struggling for recognition as a serious writer, who pens a Shakespeareemulating manuscript titled The Tragedy of Alcibiades. In an act of desperation, he presents it as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lostâ&#x20AC;? play by Shakespeare himself. His hope: to exploit the playful fraud to call attention to his own playwriting genius. When Alcibiades is pronounced to be authentic by a hoard of experts, however, the playwright finds himself unable to convince anyone that he is the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real author. Premiere, directed for RVP by Robert Wilson, was brought to the venerable 80-year-old company by the playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s niece, Abby Wasserman, a journalist and author who lives in Mill Valley. It is probable that Dale Wasserman identified strongly with his respectcraving playwright protagonist, though the self-educated, one-time rail-riding hobo was famous for eschewing the opinions of others, refusing to attend award ceremonies and energetically fighting with collaborators. Wasserman always saw himself as an outsider, and his life and legacy ref lect that view. As he remarked in the aforementioned interview (which can be viewed in its entirety on Wassermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website): â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of my plays deal with the outsider, the social reject, the rebel. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the last one to say that no one must do this, that, or the other. Every rule can be broken. I know, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve broken all of them.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Premiereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct.11.

Jimmy Page has most to reveal in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It Might Get Loudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Richard von Busack

B

ome will remember the Blind Faith incident: the supergroup that gets together and can only play a halfremembered Buddy Holly song. The trio of Jack White, the Edge and Jimmy Page got together for a summit meeting in a studio for It Might Get Loud, Davis Guggenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine documentary paean to the electric guitar. What happens is not really more than a sum of its parts, though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gratifying to see three such first-rate guitarists stumbling over the tricky chords of the Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Weightâ&#x20AC;? just like all of us campfire jammers. Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) tells the backstory of these three musicians. White was born to an enormous Catholic family in a tough part of Detroit. He was a drummer-turned-guitarist, scavenging and salvaging instruments while taking up the upholstererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trade. The success of his band, the White Stripes, revived punk, roots and blues among listeners who had never heard anything rougher than a synthesizer. At a farm in Tennessee, White demonstrates how to make a one-string electrical instrument, a variation on the blues diddley bow; he screws in a pickup and uses it to rattle the countryside. In British country-home splendor, the now white-haired Page shows us how to play the mandolin riff from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Battle of Evermoreâ&#x20AC;? and takes us on a tour of the stairwell where â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stairway to Heavenâ&#x20AC;? was recorded. And in Dublin, the Edge displays the tall cart loaded with effects pedals that help him inundate stadiums and bring together multitudes. Of the three, Page seems the most eclectic and the one most willing to divulge

his process. (Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate to watch a documentary about three people and decide that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing that the film isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sinking ship with one life preserver aboard.) We see him as young prodigy who bridges the era of British skiffle and todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heavy metal and as a hard-working London session musician whose guitar is in the mix of John Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goldfinger.â&#x20AC;? Guggenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contrast of three different stylesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;roots blues, city blues and postâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Brian Eno stadium rockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is absolutely instructive, and the subjects are forthcoming, appealing and modest, though White is more of a mystery man. He plays for us his recording of an a cappella Son House track, his favorite song in the world. Of the three, White seems to have formed himself from a study of models. This means nothing to the younger fan; to the older fan, that kind of serious homage sends you back to the music of long-dead originals. White is the kind of powerhouse who plays so hard that his fingers bleed, which we see happen during one session with the Raconteurs. The Edgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own seriousness goes without sayingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a member of uniquely sobersided U2. Page more than any of these three has preserved his sense of playfulness now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in old age. Lastly, this movie could have used a woman in itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe Corin Tucker or Carrie Brownstein? Rory Block? Bonnie Raitt? The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triumvirate implies that the big show is all about the men. Some female guitar god might have brought this all-star summit meeting up to the next level. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It Might Get Loudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Sept. 11, at the Rialto Cinemas Lakeside, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

Weir Here Quick: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to make a Sean Lennon / Vincent Gallo double bill even stranger? At the Red Devil Lounge last month, none other than Bob Weir answered the question by hopping onstage and jamming with John Lennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son (Gallo had meandered offstage earlier in the night). Seemingly at ease in any configuration, the Grateful Dead alumnus joins up this weekend with bassist Rob Wasserman, drummer Jay Lane and special guest guitarist Jackie Greene for a to-die-for supergroup theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re calling Scaring the Children. The three titans team together to benefit San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nonprofit Blue Bear School of Music, and with such an ominous name, expect the music to be as exploratory as side six of Europe â&#x20AC;&#x2122;72. It gets out there on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 142 Throckmorton. 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley. 8pm. $50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$100. 415.383.9600.

East Bay Grease Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen Tower of Power five times with almost as many different singers over the years, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always felt really sorry for whoeverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on vocal duties. After all, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to live up to Lenny Williams, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary vocalist who laid it down on â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Is Hip?,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Very Hard to Goâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soul Vaccination.â&#x20AC;? Now age 64, Williams, whose 1970s slow jam â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause I Love Youâ&#x20AC;? is still one of the best make-out songs to ever come out of the Bay Area, makes only sporadic appearances. Those wondering â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where is he now?â&#x20AC;? will have their answer when Williams headlines the American Canyon Community Music Festival.

Consorcio Jazz, Leroy Rodrigues and the Bay Area Blues Band warm things up for the love-song belter on Saturday, Sept. 12, at Main Street Park. 5050 Main St., American Canyon. Noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. Free. 707.319.4773.

Himalayan Delight If your first introduction to Nepal was the family hi-fi playing Cat Stevensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; f lute-f luff song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Katmandu,â&#x20AC;? with lines like â&#x20AC;&#x153;The morning lake drinks up the sky,â&#x20AC;? youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re forgiven for not attending the Katmandu Festival this weekend. But for those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve regularly visited one of the many great Nepalese restaurants in the area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great news that Sonoma County has such a large Sherpa population it can host a full food, music and culture festival named after Nepalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Filled with naan, curry, chutney and mushrooms, the cuisine of Nepal is a treat that smaller cities donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the luxury of eating very often, and with exotic dance and live music as side orders to the tandoori oven, Sonoma is the place to be. Finish it all up with some mango ice cream on Saturday, Sept. 12, at Depot Park. 270 First St. W., Sonoma. 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm. Free. 707.538.7023.

Jumpinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Good Time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll reveal a little-known secret for all you new parents out there. Trying to keep your baby occupied? Looking for a way to stop the screaming? The solution, whispered about among formerly frazzled parents in the know, is Buckwheat Zydeco. All youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta do is hook up the Johnny Jump-Up, throw on Buckwheatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zydeco Party, and hours will pass blissfully as the kid goes crazy to the lively, rhythmic music. Buckwheat Zydeco is part of a rare group of accordion players with Grammy nominations, and he brought the classic Cajun sound to a wider audience than ever during the 1980s. Now 61, his latest album, Lay Your Burden Down, shows heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still got it. Leave the screaming children with the babysitter when he appears on Saturday, Sept. 12, at the Lincoln Theater (100 California Drive, Yountville; 8pm; $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35; 707.944.1300) and on Sunday, Sept. 13, at Rancho Nicasio (Town Square, Nicasio; 4pm; $20; 415.662.2219).

C746A40C2>E4AD?

How long can a novelty band disguise their actual talent? f basic, primitive, old-school rock with a novelty kick is a bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling card, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bound to make the same music over and over. Such repetition can be a plus; the Ramones did it, but rather than being boring, they changed history and became beloved icons of enduring critical and popular culture, and AC/DC scored a platinum hit in 2008 with Black Ice, effectively the same record theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made for 30 years. But for roots-rock acts, which by their nature are revisiting rather than inventing, the trap of sounding the same is a tough hurdle. Clearing that bar with fresh energy is part of the goal of Yep Roc Records, a roots-Americana label whose roster includes such luminaries as Dave Alvin, Bob Mould and Rodney Crowell. When a double bill of garage-rocking Yep Roc acts hits Santa Rosa this Wednesday with rockabilly cultfaves Southern Culture on the Skids and surf weirdos Los Straitjackets, odds are in favor of some fresh variations from the norm. Both bands released intriguing cover discs in 2007 that reinvented each actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retro shake-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;-twang into a more speciďŹ c subcultural sound. For Chapel Hill, N.C.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;based SCOTS, whose 25-year career has sounded like a neon-painted funny car burning doughnuts on a dirt track, the covers disc Countrypolitan Favorites transformed their greasy-groovy white-trash schtick into focused yet eclectic country-rock. Bassist Mary Huff delivers a sincere version of Lynn Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pop hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rose Garden,â&#x20AC;? while the band roughs up rock gems like the Kinksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muswell Hillbilly,â&#x20AC;? the Byrdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have You Seen Her Faceâ&#x20AC;? and the Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Jackâ&#x20AC;? (complete with banjo!). In the biggest departure from familiar rockabilly corn, SCOTS turn T. Rexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Gasâ&#x20AC;? into a pool of languid atmospherics. Los Straitjackets (above), an instrumental surf guitar quartet whose members left Nashville studio work to perform as cartoon characters in Mexican wrestling masks, similarly enhanced their schtick with their recent covers disc Rock en EspaĂąol, Vol 1. Here, the accomplished instrumentalists move the garage to the barrio, with Spanish vocals on well-known oldies like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hang on Sloopy,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bony Maronyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Thing.â&#x20AC;? Their 2009 disc The Further Adventures of Los Straightjackets is a return to more compelling surfguitar purity, but their covers disc, like that of their swampy tour mates, shows that rock primitives can still ďŹ nd new ways to be novel. Southern Culture on the Skids and Los Straightjackets break their retro-rock mold on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth Street, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$18. 707.545.5876.

THE BOHEMIAN



BCA44CB>558A4

San Rafaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great American Blues & BBQ Festival tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harlem in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, and a diminutive 24year-old singer with the tongue-twisting birth name of Umpeylia Marsema Balinton gets the offer of her life: to share a bill at the famed Apollo Theater with Ike and Tina Turner and James Brown. At the end of the show, the offer is upped tenfold when the Godfather of Soul himself approaches and asks her to join his tour. Add a staff songwriting position at Chess Records, duets with Etta James and a number of hit singles under her own name, and such was the early whirlwind for Sugar Pie DeSanto. Having settled in the Bay Area and released a number of satisfying albums sinceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not to mention becoming a DJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep-funk icon for her heavy-hitting 45 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Git Backâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the award-winning DeSanto appears with headliner Charlie Musselwhite and Austin De Lone at the fourth annual, free, Great American Blues & Barbecue Festival, which brings grease and char, both culinary and musical, to downtown San Rafael. Ten BBQ vendors will compete in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;King of the Queâ&#x20AC;? contest, antique and handmade musical instruments will be for sale and, of course, there will be beer galore to cool down the waning days in the extended summer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all happening Saturday, Sept. 12, on Fourth Street between Lootens Avenue and B Street in downtown San Rafael. 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. Free. 415.383.3470.

Janiva Magnessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blues salvation By Robert Feuer

0

fter hitchhiking through Minneapolis one winter night, Janiva Magness, underage at the time, huddled in a dark corner of a club listening to classic blues artist Otis Rush, trying to avoid getting carded. That night she found the blues, she says, during a dinner-time interview before a recent nightclub show in Santa Rosa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otis played as if his life depended on it. Not one note was bullshit. There was a completely desperate, absolute intensity. I knew, whatever it was, I needed more of it.â&#x20AC;? The better part of a lifetime later, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely gotten more of it. Magness returns to the area Sept. 13 as part of the Russian River Blues Festival, singing with Tommy Castroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blues is about a common personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience,â&#x20AC;? she says, grasping for words that have become more important than her salmon dinner growing cold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about struggling, getting through, coming out on the other side, then celebrating that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the greatest joy, the deepest heartache, the deepest tragedy.â&#x20AC;? Heartache and tragedy defined Magnessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; early life. As a teenager, she lost both her parents to suicide, spent time in 12 foster homes, traveled from city to city living on the streets and gave up a baby daughter to adoption.

Hand-Crafted But she did have music. She spent her youth â&#x20AC;&#x153;listening to whatever I could get tuned in on my little AM transistor radio,â&#x20AC;? she says. Her father, also a singer, had a large music collection. Magness sang in a gospel choir. Later, she played small clubs, searching for a style that would work for her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to find my way,â&#x20AC;? she says. While interning in a recording studio, she recorded background vocals. In the 1980s, she moved to Phoenix, Ariz., and with the help of Bob Tate, formerly Sam Cookeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical director, she formed her first band, Janiva Magness and the Mojomatics. After 20 years of traveling in a small bus, doing 200 shows a year, Magness has reached blues stardom. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won three Blues Music Awards for Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year, in 2006, 2007 and 2009. This year, she added to her mantle the B. B. King Entertainer of the Year award. She can now afford the luxury of airplane travel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all been as glorious as you might imagine,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and five times harder.â&#x20AC;? Onstage, Magness has a tender sensuality combined with the charm and wit of a darkhaired Marilyn Monroe. Her stage chatter is up-close and personal, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always moving, dancing and grinning, and she constantly seems to be having more fun than the enthusiastic audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You better give people a show. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you dare waste their time and hard-earned money,â&#x20AC;? Magness says. During some shows, she uses spoons to play a sheet metal washboard hanging from her neck with cups for her breasts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for the novelty of it,â&#x20AC;? she says. Officials confiscated it when she once boarded a plane in Casablanca. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were afraid of itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they thought it was a bomb.â&#x20AC;? Magness joined the Bluesapalooza tour of Iraq in 2008, the first blues festival to go into an active war zone. Wearing a helmet and flak jacket onstage, she occasionally fled for shelter, bombs going off nearby and the ground shaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was scared,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but when those kids told me how it made them forget where they were for two hours, I knew it was the right thing to do. The U.S. military trains them as machines. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anyone in greater need of a break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My job is about human connection,â&#x20AC;? Magness continues. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved in the Blues in Schools program, offering students unplugged performances where she discusses blues history, answers questions, and jams with the kids. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a National Spokesperson for Casey Family Programs, promoting National Foster Care Month. Her latest album, What Love Will Do, is dedicated to children at riskâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; something she certainly knows aboutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and her message to them is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up, keep moving forward,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear much about the success stories. Do I live in that place every day? Not anymore.â&#x20AC;? Far from that rainy night in Minneapolis with Otis Rush, Magnessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home base has been Los Angeles since 1986, and she muses about her life, her eyes sparkling with passion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I drop dead tonight,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it would all have been enough.â&#x20AC;? Janiva Magness appears with the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue, Dr. John, the Neville Brothers, Otis Taylor and others at the Russian River Blues Festival on Sunday, Sept. 13, at Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beach. First and Church St., Guerneville. 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. $45. 707.869.1595.

SRJC art exhibit shines light on Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indigenous farmworkers e have stereotypes about farmworkers here. We see Mexico as one homogeneous place,â&#x20AC;? says award-winning journalist and documentary photographer David Bacon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there is just as much diversity in Mexico as there is here in the United States. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonder we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand more about the country that lives right next to ours.â&#x20AC;? These deep-rooted stereotypes are part of the challenge Bacon faces as an artist: how to convey the issues critical to indigenous farmworkersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not as laborers, but as human beings with a story. Baconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is part of the larger exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living Under the Trees,â&#x20AC;? appearing now through Oct. 10 at the Santa Rosa Junior College Art Gallery. The exhibit is a look into the lives of farmworkers whose workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bearing the fruits of our harvests right here in the North Bay and greater Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is greatly undermined. Baconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candid, emotionally stunning photography captures what Henri Cartier-Bresson once referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;decisive momentâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;recording people and life as they ebb and flow. No frills attached. Yet part of Baconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success in representing indigenous farmworkers through his photographs comes from his background as an activist. His project developed nine years ago when he was a farmworkersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union organizer and began taking photos of a group from Oaxaca, who set up encampments outside Santa Rosa. They had stretched tarps from one tree to another, unable to afford housing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing this in a way to help people win social justice here in the United States,â&#x20AC;? Bacon says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of that means we have to help people in general figure out the social reality of who these immigrants and farmworkers are and the rights they deserve.â&#x20AC;? A full slate of events is planned. On Monday, Sept. 14, at noon in the SRJC Newman Auditorium, Bacon will present his lecture, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living Under the Trees,â&#x20AC;? which speaks to the need for immigration policy reform in California. On Saturday, Sept. 12, from 4pm to 7pm, the SRJC Art Gallery presents a community forum, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living in Sonoma County.â&#x20AC;? On Tuesday, Sept. 15 at noon, the Art Gallery hosts a performance and poetry reading with Ballet Sonatlan and Armando Garcia-Davies, showcasing the ethnic threads of dance and language that preserve Mexican traditions. A celebration of Mexican Independence Day will take place on Sept. 16 at noon in the library quad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without the work of farm laborers, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat,â&#x20AC;? Bacon says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This exhibit is sort of like giving credit to them for the work they do.â&#x20AC;? SRJC, 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. All events, free. 707.527.4298. Tori Masucci

Christo and Jeanne-Claude return to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Running Fenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 33 years later hose who remember Christo and Jeanne-Claudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Running Fence: Sonoma and Marin Counties, 1972â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;76 tend to really remember it. And according to filmmaker Wolfram Hissen, people still see the Running Fence even now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always have people tell me that they think they see it, sometimes when the fog lies low over the hills,â&#x20AC;? he says by phone from his temporary roost at Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flamingo Hotel. Hissen is in town for the fourth time since March, when Christo, Jeanne-Claude and the Smithsonian American Art Museum all agreed to let him make a film about the Running Fence experience. Since then, this German native has been high-tailing it over the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back roads interviewing ranchers and volunteers who helped with the project. He has organized an informal reunion for Christo and Jeanne-Claude to meet with these landowners and helpers on Sept. 12 in the downtown park in Bloomfield. The public is welcome. Hissenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own life was changed by the Running Fence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I went to college 30 years ago, I saw the Mayslesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; film on the Running Fence, and that was such an eye-opener for me that I told myself that either Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make art like that or I would make movies like that,â&#x20AC;? he says. Brothers Albert and David Maysles (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens) have long recorded Christo and Jeanne-Claudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projects. Hissen has been making reportage of Christo and Jeanne-Claudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work since they wrapped Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pont Neuf in 1985 and has just finished working on Along U.S. 50, a documentary chronicling the troubles the artists are having completing their Over the River project in Colorado, in which the Arkansas river is almost wholly roofed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We discovered how many people are violently against it,â&#x20AC;? Hissen says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Environmentalists, yes, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically people who have religious concerns: they think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an insult to the Creator. In English, we have this wonderful word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;create,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking how can artists from New York come and impose their art on this valley that is already a piece of art.â&#x20AC;? Hissenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Running Fence at 33 film will premiere next April at the Smithsonian in conjunction with an exhibit of Running Fence ephemera the institution has just purchased. Hissen says that Smithsonian curators said to him â&#x20AC;&#x153;that they bought the Running Fence exhibit because they believe that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important American artwork in the second half of the 20th century. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no living artists who have reached more people than they have,â&#x20AC;? he continues excitedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no category in which they will fit. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a big problem for art historians who wonder where to put them. But they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be put anywhere! They are just doing what they think is right.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Running Fence at 33â&#x20AC;&#x2122; reception is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12, from 2pm to 5pm. Bloomfield Park, 6700 Bloomfield Road, Bloomfield. Free. For details, contact the Sonoma County Museum, 707.579.1500.
