5>DA<>=C7B0F0H â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coastal Conundrumâ&#x20AC;? (Aug. 26) by Alastair Bland contains a statement for which we request a correction. It states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, for one, has made promises to help with placing demarcation buoys along the [MLPA] reservesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boundaries and with aerial patrols, but their promises have fallen short of reality.â&#x20AC;? This is incorrect. The effective date for Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MLPA sites is Jan. 1, 2010â&#x20AC;&#x201D;four months away. The Farallones

marine sanctuary has already issued a Request for Proposals for placement of demarcation buoys around closure areas. This work is scheduled for completion well before the effective date. The Farallones sanctuary has also been coordinating with the California Dept. of Fish and Game and U.S. Coast Guard in developing an enforcement plan, including air patrols, for the North-Central coast MLPA sites. An enforcement technical advisory committee was established to develop an enforcement plan, including overflights. Our sanctuary has developed a flight guide for pilots. The sanctuary is also assisting the state to educate the public through boater guides and on the net, with signage and exhibits. We are frankly puzzled how any of this could be construed as having â&#x20AC;&#x153;fallen shortâ&#x20AC;? of promises.

0A18CA0AH0CCA81DC8>=. I was interviewed several times by writer Alastair Bland for his recent Marine Life Protection Act story. It was clear that Mr. Bland wanted to write about

this ocean restoration effort from the perspective of an extractive abalone diver. Twice, he tried to attribute statements to me about the possibility that protecting key areas of the coast could shift abalone catch effort and â&#x20AC;&#x153;hammerâ&#x20AC;? nearby intertidal areas, resulting in an eventual lowering of catch limits. Each time I clarified that this was not my belief. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Alastair had arbitrarily assigned me an attributed opinion on transfer of abalone catch pressure that I had specifically told him was not my position. Your writer is certainly welcome to express his personal opinions about the health of our coast, and free to criticize those from all walks of life who spent hundreds of hours in an open public process trying to come up with a fair and equitable way to restore damage done here by too many people taking too much from the ocean. The Bohemian has a responsibility, however, to assign such opinion pieces to its editorial page and to keep erroneous attributions by its writers to a minimum.

A8270A3270AC4A E804<08;

Alastair Bland has reviewed the complaints issued since our story ran and assures us that his transcripts are true and correct. We stand by the story as he reported it.

1A40:8=6C74CADBC Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m suspicious of the motives of the anonymous â&#x20AC;&#x153;trust attorneyâ&#x20AC;? who called your publication to question the competence of trustees of the Doyle Trust (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deep Doyle,â&#x20AC;? Sept. 9). Exchange Bank, arguably the only bank in the entire world for which it can be said that the majority stockholder is a charitable trustâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Doyle Trustâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has been the target of takeover attempts for decades. The first hurdle, which no one has yet succeeded in jumping, although several have made the attempt, is breaking the Doyle Trust. How interesting that an anonymous attorney now questions the handling of that trust, the sole asset of which is Exchange Bank stock. If the Doyle Trust were forced to diversify, something very sinister might happen: the bank could be vulnerable to takeover by outside interests at a time when its stock price is low because of the economic crisis. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess whether Doyle Scholarships would ever again be issued if the bank were sold. Sonoma County is so fortunate that Exchange Bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder, Frank Doyle, had the foresight to structure the trust in the way he did. Exchange Bank will again declare dividends, and SRJC students will again benefit from the Doyle Scholarships.

B44=C74;867C Santa Rosa Public Works director Rick Moshier leads a unique energy-saving program that casts light on unnecessary spending for streetlights.

3PaZ]Tbb^]cWT4SVT^UC^f] Why Santa Rosa public works director Rick Moshier is on a campaign to turn off the lights By Gabe Meline

8

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that Rick Moshier hates streetlights. Several years ago, just for fun, he made a construction-paper collage of a nighttime street scene, with tall lamps shining brightly on the empty streets, and won a ribbon for it at the county fair; now it hangs prominently on the wall of his office as the director of Public Works with the city of Santa Rosa. But Moshier, who has worked for the city for 28 years, does hate waste. To that end, he has recently implemented a radical cost-cutting program that will turn off more than half of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10,000 streetlights for good, with even more lights placed on timers, set to go dark nightly between midnight and 5:30am. The first

phase in the junior college area has already been completed, and in the next two years, Moshier says, the lights-out program will cover every neighborhood in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The energy bill for the streetlights is a big numberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $800,000 per year,â&#x20AC;? Moshier explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the city over the years would have budget stress, I would be told to cut my budget. But that was a number we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut. It was just there.â&#x20AC;? Instead, Moshier, who recently saw the public works budget cut by 23 percent, was forced to ignore potholes and reduce maintenance on storm drains, not to mention having to lay off the people who would normally perform those jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was getting pretty severe,â&#x20AC;? he says. Moshier estimates that turning off streetlights can cut that energy bill in half,

down to $400,000 or more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the goal,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than the goalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we committed to do.

The lights will stay on for highdensity areas such as Fourth Street, at all intersections and crosswalks, beneath the Third Street underpass and along the Prince Memorial Greenway, and public feedback may dictate further areas stay illuminated. Due to a recent car break-in on Carrillo Street, the decision was made to leave one light on in the middle of blocks longer than 600 feet long. Though budget cuts and energy savings have swept the nation, no &'

Protecting wilderness, budget cuts notwithstanding, is a priority By Stephen Altschuler

8

was fortunate to spend some days in Lake Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Snow Mountain Wilderness a couple of months ago with a group of backpacking buddies. It does a body and mind good to be in the wild, soaking in all that nature offers. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the key: though nature offers her gifts, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to us to receive them with gratitude and reverence. Amid all our guffaws, cut-ups, caterwauling, intemperate jocularity and addled conversation, invariably one of us would pause, look around and comment upon the salience of the surrounding mountains, the diversity of flora, the dance of a fence lizard or the trill of a darting Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuthatch. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I love most about this fine group of outdoorsmen. We can be off on an inviolate destination, as men are wont to have, but suddenly someone sees a delicate and lovely f lower, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all down on our knees admiring and photographing it. In one moment, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re snorting over the ignominious release of intestinal f latulence, and in the next weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re discussing the pleasures of Chopin and Bach. We like our gin and Irish whiskey, our coffee and smoke, but also savor a good green tea and a heady, fair-trade dark chocolate, fresh blueberries and a plump English banger. One of our guys brought a kite, and was happy and carefree as a 12-year-old while flying it at 7,000 feet. He also argued the finer points of economic socialism around the fire, while the next day I and another of our blokes got into a heated debate over the IsraeliPalestinian impasse, verbally punching and counterpunching but ending with a good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bona fide California hug. If only the Jews and Arabs could do the same: agree to disagree, and then live and let live. The area where we were is considered one of the best-preserved ecological spots in California, and that sightings of bear, wildcat and rattlesnakes are not uncommon. Two in our group did see, and almost stepped on, two rattlesnakes, but the rest of us were content, quite content, with wildflowers, birds and lizards, the names of which we are still searching for. I slept upon fir and pine

boughs beneath my tent since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d forgotten my sleeping pad in the car, the memory lapse possibly the result of a concussion after smacking my head on a tree branch a few weeks before while hiking in Berkeley. Bet you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know hiking is a contact sport. We met a widely diverse bunch of people on and near the trail as well. The quality of a wilderness area depends ultimately on the people who visit and support it. People express themselves and their feelings about a place by where they spend their time and how they behave in those places. I did not see one piece of litter on any part of the wilderness we visited, and we went all the way to the top. We met a 40-member Boy Scout troop from Pleasanton hiking in single file, as quiet as the mountain itself. We met a father and his four children taking a night hike, looking like a string of firef lies with their headlamps showing the way. We met a group of teens from the inner city, blacks and whites together, politely answering our greetings. We expected worse, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there occasionally, but the people we came across were courteous, polite and friendly. That kind of consciousness protects not only the physical geography of a place, but its spiritual geography as well. As California struggles with its economy, the governor line-item-vetoes possibly a hundred state parks into closure. A nickel rise in the gasoline tax, or a dime added to a pack of cigarettes would save them, indeed would save the soul of a state that considers closing these antidotes to modern life. But even without those mild measures, people care for and protect places like Snow Mountain. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s give them further chances to shine, and find ways to keep the parks open.

other city in the country is turning off such a large percentage of its streetlights, which are traditionally considered to equal public safety. National outlets such as USA Today and Fox News have been calling Moshierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, asking why a city would turn off its streetlights. He instead chooses to ask why so many were turned on in the first place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The statistics and the research that the police department has done find that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a correlation between more light and more safety,â&#x20AC;? Moshier says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something we evolved into. At first glance, it makes common sense, having more light; it resonates. We just incrementally got used to more and more light, and we came to expect it.â&#x20AC;? Moshier cites a handbook that all cities receive with suggested standards for lighting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say that you should only have so much variation from the darkest point to the lightest point, and that you should have some light everywhere,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you add it all up, man, you have to put in a lot of light! â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need it in most locations.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not surprising that the 50-year-old handbook, written and distributed by General Electric, aggressively encourages the use of lights. Moshier thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an outdated thought process developed for larger cities like San Francisco by an industry association that stood to profit from more lighting, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply been allowed to run for too long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fifty years later,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all concerned about greenhouse gases and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all concerned about money, and you look around for what you can do about those things, and this is one of the fairly big and, I think, relatively painless solutions.â&#x20AC;? Nearby cities have taken notice. Nader Mansourian, assistant director of Public Works in San Rafael, has certainly wrestled with his own budget cuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had layoffs and we had early retirements. We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do any more pavement repairs. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just fix the potholes, unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an overlay job,â&#x20AC;? he says, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never considered turning off any of San Rafaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4,400 lights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would imagine we would save $5,000 to $6,000 a month,â&#x20AC;? he estimates, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and for that much money, I would rather have the safety.â&#x20AC;? In his time at the Public Works department, Moshier has worked directly on the restoration of Santa Rosa Creek, the Prince Memorial Greenway, bike lanes on Mendocino Avenue and Montgomery Drive, smart-technology traffic signal software and hybrid city buses. Many in his department ride bikes to work, one employee coming from as far as Novato. Turning off streetlights fulfills that same environmental need, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to do all the small things, everything we can do about greenhouse gas, to even have a prayer of being on track,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping, and we think that this is something the community will accept. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect everyone to like it, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect everyone to be a proponent of this. We hope for peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patience, and I hope people can acknowledge that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking on a difficult task for the right reasons and have a little understanding that this is a worthwhile thing to be working on.â&#x20AC;?

Litigation backup over greenhouse-gas emissions at the big, fat Narrows By Juliane Poirier

Âş

F

henever you build or widen a road,â&#x20AC;? says my Caltrans informant Joe Doe (not his real name), â&#x20AC;&#x153;it fills up and gets congested.â&#x20AC;? I ask how long the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road experts have known this fact and gone ahead building and widening anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been known for a long time, actually,â&#x20AC;? Doe, whose 30plus agency years include both the maintenance and engineering departments at Caltrans, explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fact that dates clear back to when the Romans built roads for chariots.â&#x20AC;? If predictable road capacity failure predates the planned widening of the MarinSonoma Narrows by 2,500 years, then perhaps David Schonbrunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selfdescribed effort to move Caltrans â&#x20AC;&#x153;into the present centuryâ&#x20AC;? may be timely. Head of the Transportation Solutions Defense and Education Fund in San Rafael, Schonbrunn filed a lawsuit on Aug. 26 against Caltrans for an inadequate environmental impact report. An EIR is supposed to take into account the pressures a planned project will have on the environment; Schonbrunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group claims that the EIR for widening the Marin-Sonoma Narrows did not study the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate-change impacts. It is estimated that Caltransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; $745 million proposal to add 16 miles of high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes between Novato and Petaluma will increase greenhouse gas emissions by 27 percent. But the EIR allegedly does not contain an analysis of the impacts that will result from that increase. In the context of climate-protective legislation, including AB 32, which calls to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, critics think Caltrans might have left something out. According to Schonbrunn, in the 1990s the Sonoma-Marin Multimodal Land Use and Transportation Study (often referred to more simply as the Calthorpe Study) resolved that more lanes were not the answer to traffic problems, and did not recommend widening the highway but instead installing a train system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Caltrans EIR lied on this point when it said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no inconsistency between the

Calthorpe study and this project,â&#x20AC;? Schonbrunn charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors went to approve the transportation plan that came out of the study, it was going to be the train and HOV lanes except in the Narrows, but then paving contractor Ghilotti sent a mess of his workers to the hearing with big signs saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Three Lanes All the Way.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So this project arose not as a result of any analytic study but purely motivated by self-interests. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that.â&#x20AC;? Sonoma County Transportation Authority director Suzanne Smith says the project was the outcome of a public vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When two-thirds of voters approved Measure M in 2004,â&#x20AC;? Smith says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they approved a package of transportation projects. And last year Sonoma and Marin voters approved the Smart Train.â&#x20AC;? As to whether adding extra lanes in the Narrows is a good idea, Smith responds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very committed to doing this project, and I think the public expects it to be delivered.â&#x20AC;? Smith defends the EIR for the project, explaining that it is a joint effort of her agency, Caltrans and the transportation authority of Marin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel strongly that the document meets all the requirements of the [California Environmental Quality Act].â&#x20AC;? Because other courts have determined that it is a required analysis, Schonbrunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit aims to get Caltrans to release its greenhouse gas (GHG) emission-analysis protocol and apply it to this project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a case of statewide significance with enormous policy implications,â&#x20AC;? Schonbrunn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caltrans lost a case in Sacramento with exactly the same fact pattern. Now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over a year late in fulfilling their commitment to issue a greenhouse-gas emissions-analysis protocol, which is part of their climate-action program. Building highways is a major factor in increasing GHG emissions, and yet Caltrans wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t acknowledge this.â&#x20AC;? If more roads bring more congestion, and more congestion brings more greenhouse gas, and more greenhouse gas raise the planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s temperature, it does seem obviousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;vote or no voteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that continued road expansion will not solve either our travel or climate problems. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no Caltrans engineer, but having driven the Marin-Sonoma Narrows since Gov. Brown was dating Linda Ronstadt, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve observed that the Romans were right: expand the roads and you expand the traffic.

BX]V[TBX__X]ž New trend in single-hop brewing brings several varieties to life By Alastair Bland

C

hey come in complex blends, aromatic potpourris redolent of grapefruit, guava, pine sap and cat peeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and beer just wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the same without them. But when it comes to hops, even dedicated drinkers are unlikely to know the names of most individual varieties, of which there are dozens commonly used in beer, and fewer still understand the precise qualities that differentiate one hop from another. But much the way that varietal wines emerged from the Bordeaux-, Burgundy-, Rhone and Chianti-style blends of traditional winemaking, many brewers are experimenting with beers that feature just one hop variety, rather than the usual blend of three or four, and this relatively new trend bodes to put the names and virtues of varietal hops squarely on the map. Often on tap at Healdsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bear Republic Brewing Company is an ale called Rebellion, which sports the Chinook hop, identifiable by

its striking pine-needle essence. The most recent incarnation of Rebellion, though, is just the latest version of the exact same beer, a strong pale ale first brewed in 2006, that the brewpub periodically reproduces using the same yeast and malt recipe but flavored at each go-around with a different hop. Rebellion has previously been flavored with Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, Columbus and Amarillo hops, the latter wellliked for its powerful grapefruit nose.

eter Hackett of Stumptown Brewery in Guerneville first began making his Rat Bastard Pale Ale in 2001, also using 100 percent Amarillo hops. Hackett, who has seen an increased interest in hops among his customers, says single-hop beers provide an educational experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These beers provide people with a solid understanding of exactly what each hop does to a beer,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eventually, it makes you a better beer drinker.â&#x20AC;? Other brewers feel that hops are best blended.

Larry Sidor of Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Ore., for one, says that single-hop beers â&#x20AC;&#x153;rarely cut it as beers you want to package.â&#x20AC;? Still, he brews several small batches each year for brewpub patrons. But Bear Republicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewer Peter Kruger notes that the purpose of blending is to round off edges and camouflage idiosyncrasies, and to him the idea almost verges on boring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nature of blending is to homogenize something and create a well-rounded product, but when you use a single grape or hop, you get more personality and angular flavor.â&#x20AC;? Other hops have their own particular virtues, though Sierra Nevadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewer Steve Dresler says that a fine line separates potent perfection from olfactory overkill. For example, the Simcoe emits a fine smell of grapefruit. A pinch too much, though, and you get cat urine. The East Kent Golding, a British variety, smells like cedar on the better end and fishiness on the other. Czech Saaz is a strong, spicy hop, but if used out of balance it smells like vinegar. The Columbus hop smells remarkably like marijuana, a point not lost on &, THE BOHEMIAN

the production team at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, Colo., whose Hog Heaven barley wine is brewed with a heavy dosage of 100 percent Columbus and, according to brewmaster Adam Avery, â&#x20AC;&#x153;reeks of ganja.â&#x20AC;? The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production manager, Steve Breezley, notes that it â&#x20AC;&#x153;smells like a dime-bagâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;exactly the effect the brewers were seeking. But brewing a staple beer with just one hop can backfire if a price spike or a poor harvest renders the hop abruptly unavailable. Marin Brewing Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arne Johnson, for one, used to make his Tiburon Blonde with Czech Saaz hops. Then came the much-lamented shortage of 2007, and the hopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price escalated by several hundred percent. He was forced to rewrite the recipe and now blends Czech Saaz with the more readily available Sterling hop for the same, though slightly different, beer. The same global hop shortage rewrote the recipe for Stumptownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rat Bastard Pale Ale, which Hackett has since blended with Summit hops, though he intends to resume the one-hop original recipe as prices stabilize. The 2007 hop crisis similarly put an end to Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brewing Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual single-hop beer festival, held at the San Leandro brewpub from 2005 to 2007. Each participating brewery made a basic pale ale flavored with the same hop. Warrior was the starring variety in 2005, Summit in 2006 and Bravo in 2007. Lagunitas Brewing Company has also had to adjust to shortfalls in rare hop production. Lagunitas once bittered many of its beers with the Eroica hop. Then the Washington farmers who grew the variety announced plans to replace it with other more popular types. That season, Lagunitas promptly bought up every last bale of Eroica and brewed a single-hop pale ale as a tribute beer eulogizing the flower. Ron Lindenbusch, who co-manages the Petaluma brewery, still keeps several bottles of Eroica Ale in his office, capsules containing the last existing traces of the Eroica hop essence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Eroica, we put that hop to the grave,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. Or did they really? According to John Henning, genetic researcher and hop specialist with the USDA, five Eroica plants still exist deep within the rows of tangled vines in the USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corvallis, Ore., hop collection. There, 400 permanent varieties grow, while on satellite nurseries nearby, as many as 10,000 experimental breeds are ever fluxing in and out of existence as breeders dabble with new hybrids and crosses, ever seeking to isolate desirable traits and create potentially profitable hop breeds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But not all hops smell like roses,â&#x20AC;? Henning reminds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes they smell like skunk.â&#x20AC;? Those varieties get tossed, but Henning says there is at least one hop on the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; so newly created that it has no nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; which smells strongly of chocolate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to be a keeper. Not all breweries care about aroma, and

one of the leading forces in the commercial extinction of many hop breeds is the escalating demand for alpha acid extract, a sticky saplike reduction made from any of several extremely bitter hops. Extract is favored by the big brewers as a cheap means of bittering beer, while many craft brewers disdain hop extract as an insult to the artistry of making beer. Yet the overpowering demand for the refined syrup has driven farmers to gradually exchange aromatic character for sheer bitterness.

Many craft brewers disdain hop extract as an insult to the artistry of making beer. In 1980, the bitterest hop of all was the Cluster hop, which contained between 6 and 9 percent alpha acid content. Today, other varieties have been edged by breeders well into the double digits, with some â&#x20AC;&#x153;superhigh alphaâ&#x20AC;? types, like Apollo, Bravo, Tomahawk, Zeus and Millennium, running 16 to 20 percent. By comparison, Czech Saaz contains just 2 percent alpha acid, and in an industry where alpha acids equal profits, few farmers still grow such mild aromatic varieties. Craft brewersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; demand for rare breeds, however, could keep many varieties from slipping over the brink, and the single-hop beer trend could fuel that demand. At Russian River Brewing Company, brewer Vinnie Cilurzo regularly remakes Hop 2 It Ale with the same malt makeup but a new hop each time. The beer most recently appeared on draft featuring Sterling hops, sometimes described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;spicyâ&#x20AC;? variety. Marin Brewing Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dirty Blonde pale ale also features pure Sterling. And from Denmark, Mikkeller is rolling out a series of IPAs, each highlighting a hop of its own. The Mikkeller Cascade IPA smells and tastes mildly citric and vegetal. By comparison, the Nelson Sauvin IPA is much fruitier, with a brilliant taste of ruby red grapefruit over a heavy, dull bitterness. These beers and others in this unique IPA series are periodically available at Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bottle Barn. The Chinook Rebellion should be flowing again soon at Bear Republic, where brewer Kruger believes hop varieties may someday become as well-known as varietal wines. Stumptown Breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hackett also believes that consumer interest in varietal hops will lend extra â&#x20AC;&#x153;credibilityâ&#x20AC;? to the art and industry of brewing. Whether names like Zlatan, Fuggle or Hallertau Mittelfrueh will ever flow from the tongue as freely as do our most popular varietal grapes remains to be seen, but in the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewpubs, beer drinkers are already talking. If we learned how to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;GewĂźrztraminer,â&#x20AC;? perhaps anything is possible. THE BOHEMIAN

Such was the exuberance of Sheila Lukins, co-author of that seminal tome (with Julee Rosso) that sold 2.5 million copies and spawned a range of careers that now runs from really good local restaurants popping up all over American to, well, Rachel Ray. Sheila, who died Aug. 31 at a young 66, was a tiny spitďŹ re with a sprawling apartment at the legendary Dakota in Manhattan. She inhabited the sort of pivotal cultural position most recently exempliďŹ ed by the frustratingly appealing ďŹ lm Julie & Julia. She was a modern gal, for her time, with an intense desire to have meaning, a voice in the culture and the acknowledgements to go with it. Like Julia and unlike Julie, she had meansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including a couple of husbands with cashâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and imagination. She had passion, a strong work ethic and a vivid imagination. And like so many of that time, she loved to play. You could see it in her recipes and in the fanciful doodles with which she painstakingly adorned nearly every page. Her recipes had strong colors and bold ďŹ&#x201A;avors. They mixed cultures before the term fusion even became a whisper. In fact, some of it really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or go togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but all of it was tasty and fresh and conďŹ dent. And so very American. Sheila was a caterer when Rosso, a marketing director and client, suggested they join forces and provide the sorts of meals, at home or ofďŹ ce, that those fast-paced and highcompetition times required. This was before New York City had really good food in reasonably affordable restaurants. When I landed in Manhattan, from San Francisco, in 1982, the only place I could ďŹ nd perfectly fresh, simply grilled ďŹ sh with a crisp, perfect salad for lunch was at the Grill Room at the Four Seasons Restaurant, for about $160 for two. It was a city that considered a â&#x20AC;&#x153;regular coffeeâ&#x20AC;? something thin, burnt, in a blue and white paper cup, with two sugars and milk. The women had considered calling their new enterprise the Blue Onion, but New York Times food writer Florence Fabricant, then writing for New York Magazine, suggested that these girls formed a sort of Silver Palate and a name, a business and a tsunami of cultural inďŹ&#x201A;uences was born. The Silver Palate shop, just 152 square feet on the Upper West Side, embodied every basic principle of a specialty food store weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to expect. It offered an edited collection of what we might need that night or over the weekend, for our small urban families or as a hostess gift for a Hamptons weekend. They made and bottled or canned their own condiments, sauces, dressings and rubs. Sheila got some of that recognition she so craved. The 25th anniversary of their bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publication was met with celebration and praise. They got inducted into the coveted Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Who of Food and Beverage in America by the James Beard Foundation, and Sheila ended up as the food editor of Parade magazine, inserted weekly into millions of Sunday papers across the country. The spirit of those times and the new ingredients they broughtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;arugula, pesto, sundried tomatoes, couscous, tiny French lentils, all sorts of olives with their original pitsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is ever with us and under our belts in a way that post-adolescence, approaching adulthood hopes to achieve. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affection and sentiment, amusement at our own folly and deep appreciation for the learning and sheer experience Sheila and her generation of food-loving pals simply loved to share.

;8@D83;>E4 0??;4B ccasionally, Bohemian staff are allowed to leave the hellish constancy of our computers, merrily don our media-whore hats, and gallop out into the actual world. Such was the case last week when we were the plusone guest to a friend attending a luncheon at Chalk Hill Winery as part of the Sonoma Wine Country Weekend. Seated in the impossibly high-ceilinged pavilion room overlooking co-proprietor Peggy Furthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dressage barn, we were treated to a nearly perfect four-course meal by Chalk Hill executive chef Didier Ageorges. The mild summer afternoon meal commenced with simply the best gazpacho this gazpacho-guzzler has ever daintily guzzled. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bathe in it. Chef Didierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tip is to use orange cherry tomatoes. Their subtle taste and gorgeous color make this a deďŹ ning cool soup.

sherry vinegar 1 c. extra virgin olive oil

Toss tomatoes with cucumber, red and green pepper, onion, and garlic in a large bowl. Working in batches, purĂŠe the mixture in a blender or food processor. Season to taste with salt, pepper and sherry vinegar. The amounts needed will vary, depending on your tomatoes and your taste. Refrigerate overnight. The next day, remove the gazpacho from the refrigerator 45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;60 minutes before serving, so it will be cool but not cold (to avoid the olive oil congealing). Strain the soup and stir in 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil for a luxurious texture. The soup may require additional seasoning when chilled, so taste again and add salt, pepper or vinegar as needed, prior to serving. To make the basil oil: purĂŠe basil with 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt in the blender. Serve the soup in chilled bowls drizzled with basil oil.

I8=C>?80 eems like weekend wine events come to Dry Creek Valley more often than quarterly taxes; they’re certainly more welcome. Most enjoin thousands of participants to drive down picturesque, winding roads and veer off to the winery of their momentary whim. In the midst of a mad-busy crush, that might not be a pretty sight. This new festival presents a fix in the form of an old-fashioned, outdoor wine harvest fest, dedicated to the valley’s superstar juice, Zinfandel.

S

Over a hundred years ago, Italian and other immigrant farmers staked their claims on the narrow valley and rolling benchlands above Dry Creek, and planted the go-to grape of the time. The juicy, fruity grape had enough backbone—often augmented with a hodgepodge of other grapes—to make a reliable everyday red. Through grape gluts and long, dry years, enough stubborn farmers and their sturdy old vines stuck it out—50 years ago, the smart money planted prunes—to make Dry Creek Valley and Zinfandel inseparable. Even today, brand-new vineyards are often seen trained to one stake, with no wires, just like their granddaddies. The first annual Zintopia pays tribute to this heritage. More than 30 local, family-owned wineries will pour their brambly, peppery product. Billed as a “plein air extravaganza,” the outdoor big-tent event will be held by Lake Sonoma, and features live music (blues, natch), a food and local products marketplace, a grape stomp and something educational called Zin-Smart.

“Kudos to the owner, Mrs. Mona Dhar, and her brother and co-owner Sumeer Karihaloo, who manages the restaurant, for giving the North Bay its finest Indian restaurant, and to Chef Uddab for his ability to create Indian food that

transcends the ordinary” Jeff Cox – Press Democrat

707.538.3367 52 Mission Circle, Santa Rosa (at Hwy 12 & Mission Blvd.)

Marketplace goodies will cost extra, but admission includes a generous food pairing prepared by Park Avenue Catering: pesto goat cheese pizza with summer vegetables, Black Angus beef sliders and grilled panzanella bread salad for the veggie Zinfans, and California sea bass grilled in fig leaves paired with Sauvignon Blanc. Yes, Zinfandel may be the people’s wine, but you can’t please all the people all the time, so the busy winegrowers of Dry Creek have slipped in a sampling of their other, unusual varietals, including that suspiciously Zin-like old Italian doppelganger, Primitivo. Vice versa, the old farmers might have said. Zintopia is slated for Saturday, Sept. 19, from 2pm to 7pm at Lake Sonoma, Warm Springs Recreation Area, 3333 Skaggs Spring Road. $75. 707.433.3031.

?4H<0A8= E8=4H0A3B es, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine in Marin; that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve established. Where to ďŹ nd it is now less of a big question than a little adventure. Exiting Petaluma via D Street, there are no vineyards to show the way. The Petaluma-Point Reyes Road winds through oak woodlands nestled in between cow-studded hills, as blanched and golden as Schlosskranz cheese rind. South of the Marin French Cheese Co., past sagging 19th-century farmhouses that mightnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have had a coat of paint since the mid-20th, colorfully clad cyclists optimistically spin their cranks up long, steep grades. Turning west, we drop down into Olema Valley, where cow country meets conifer forest.

Jonathan and Susan Pey may be the most outgoing ambassadors for Marin County wine, yet in tiny Olema their tasting room is but a foothold in the historic Olema Inn. The ďŹ ve-room inn, dating from 1876, has a full restaurant and an orchard patio thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a popular wedding venue. Winetasting may be hosted by innkeeper John Wiltshire, who manifests the combination of genial hospitality and wry realism beďŹ tting an English publican. He knows the wines, and notes are helpfully provided on placemats, with one glass for each taste. Untiring label-creators, the Peys have a different moniker for nearly every wine, saving the Pey-Marin designation for Riesling and Pinot that they farm in northern Marin. Opening with fruity pineapple and nectarine aromas, the 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shell Moundâ&#x20AC;? Riesling ($24) tastes instead like lemon-lime with a note of stone-dust, and ďŹ nishes as lean and dry as all getout, cutting across the palate like a cool razor and refreshing as a blast of sea breeze (fustian winespeak, but all true). If the 2006 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trois Fillesâ&#x20AC;? Pinot Noir ($39) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the standout, it could be that the other wines share its core qualitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;enticing aromatics coupled with a bright, clean ďŹ nish. This medium-bodied, clear Pinot, with cranberry and wild berry fruit accented with brown spice, ďŹ nishes with lithe acidity. The 2006 Mount Tamalpais Merlot ($28) shows raspberry, blackberry fruit with just a background echo of vegetal, black-olive Merlot-ness for complexity, an appealing claret thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silky, dry but not sticky. The 2007 Spicerack â&#x20AC;&#x153;Punchdownâ&#x20AC;? Sonoma Coast Syrah ($25) appears to be an opaque, purple monster: dark, spicy aromas of black licorice and cracked pepper waft up; ripe ďŹ&#x201A;avors of licorice, black cherry and olallieberry wash over the palate, take a bow, and make the most mannerly and continental exit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big, luscious paper tiger of a Syrah that does not leave the palate heavy and dry, but refreshed and ready. Folks, this is what Sonoma Syrah can be. Across these disparate varietals, Pey-Marin wines adhere to a common theme. Some would say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terroir. Bah! It may as well be the hand of the winemakers, honing in on wines that score bigâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at the dinner table. Later, we found our way over the hills to a restaurant in nearby Fairfax. The service was friendly and the ďŹ let was OK, but the wine list was crumbs. Sure could have used some seasoningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from the spicerack. Pey-Marin at the Olema Inn, 10000 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Olema. Open daily from noon to 4pm. $12 fee. 415.663.9559.

2P]]PQXb2P]]PQXi What happens when marijuana comes out of the closet, works as a medicine and joins the chamber of commerce? By Daniel Hirsch

?

eace in Medicine Healing Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices resemble the working space of any similar sized nonprofit organization. Stacks of paperwork sit atop desks nestled into small cubicles, boxes of tax documents fill up shelves, computer monitors hum, a rolled-up yoga mat rests in a corner. However, next to the water cooler are more iconoclastic office-place accoutrements: a gleaming, black device sits next to a small, glass dish of the pale green, fragrant herb that goes by many names. At Peace in Medicine, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pot, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not weed, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dope, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not ganja. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medicine. To many, the Sebastopol center represents the new, exciting face of the evolving medical cannabis movement. Peace in Medicine (PIM) prides itself on its clinical, professional approach to dispensing the drug and providing a range of health services to its patients, including acupuncture, massage, yoga and classes in

herbal medication. It has bent over backward to maintain good relations with neighbors and to follow both California law and Sebastopol city ordinances. An active member of the chamber of commerce, the dispensary has contributed funding to the local community center and the Kiwanis Club alike. However, like the entire movement itself, the cannabis dispensary must perform a delicate dance in obeying the often contradictory and confusing regulations that directly violate federal law. While its guests cannot medicate on the premises, it does allow employees, who also must be patients, according to the law, to use that gleaming, black device next to the water cooler during breaks. (A vaporizer, this device essentially superheats the dried buds so that their active ingredient, THC, boils off into a fine, thin mist.) Peace in Medicine also straddles two conflicting cultures. While the constantly repeated motto of the clinic is to bring cannabis â&#x20AC;&#x153;out of the shadows and into the lightâ&#x20AC;? of the mainstream, it also clings to its drug-centric

countercultural roots. Though it proudly participated in Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Apple Blossom Festival, riding a float alongside those of local vineyards and plumbing companies alike, the dispensary also celebrated the birthday of Jerry Garcia, a man who died of a drug overdose, with 15 percent off all edible cannabis products. Over the past decade, the cannabis industry has seen tremendous growth, and appears to be on the brink of even more. However, that growth is marked by contradictions, conflict, confusion and rapid change blooming as fast as the cash crop that fuels it all.

Obamajuana â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dispensaries are on the cutting edge of social movement,â&#x20AC;? journalist and author Martin Lee says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very dynamic social movement, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won.â&#x20AC;? That social movement and industry has expanded in the past decade, and may be entering a brand-new era of acceptance and profitability.

with doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation to posses and cultivate marijuana, the cannabis industry has steadily and rapidly grown. Nearly 500 clubs, dispensaries and cannabis clinics have popped up around the state while operating in an ambiguous legal status. Each county has different regulations and cities have their own ordinances, all the while marijuana possession remains illegal under federal law. However, as California faces unprecedented financial duress, the discussion about a more widespread legalization of medicinal marijuana and its benefit to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy has grown increasingly pronounced. This year, numerous developments have pushed increased legalization forward. State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, proposed a bill that would place a $50 levy on every ounce of marijuana sold in California. A study done by the California State Board of Equalization found that with around 16 million ounces of marijuana consumed a year and 8.6 million pounds grown, if passed the bill could bring $1.4 billion in revenue for the state. In June, State Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, proposed a Senate joint resolution calling for an end to federal raids on California dispensaries. A landslide Oakland city vote in July passed an increased dispensary tax. Estimates suggest that this could bring in $294,000 to the city in its first year. Recently, three different advocacy groups have filed legalization initiatives to potentially appear on the 2010 general election ballot. One has already entered circulation for signatures. For many in the industry, perhaps the first real turning point came on Nov. 4, 2008. In March of this year, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder made a statement, which according to Lee, â&#x20AC;&#x153;would never have happened in the Bush administration.â&#x20AC;? Holder announced the federal government would not prosecute dispensaries operating within state law. Though Obama himself has said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support legalization, many in the industry see his election as a beacon of things to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medical cannabis is very young,â&#x20AC;? PIM founder and executive director Robert Jacob says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say it passed in 1996, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been oppressed until November 2008 when Obama came into office. So when you look at the medical cannabis industry, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just beginning.â&#x20AC;?

Budding Prospects Located at Gravenstein Station, the same plaza that houses the Sebastopol Inn and Coffee Catz, PIMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facility reaches a level of respectability one might not expect from an establishment that distributes a substance still categorized as a Schedule 1 drug by the DEA, alongside heroin and mescaline. Newly built, with a large front porch and creamcolored siding, the healing center looks altogether suburban. But already serving over 5,000 patients in just two years of existence, the center is more than ordinary. In February of 2007, when Jacob heard

that the Sebastopol City Council might be on the threshold of passing an ordinance allowing for nonprofit dispensaries to open up shop, he stepped into action. He gathered 18 close friends and began to write a usepermit proposal. When the city ordinance passed a few days after that first meeting, the group launched letter-writing campaigns, raised $180,000 in funds from the local community and made PIM a reality. It opened its doors that October. Only 32, Jacob speaks with the shrewd confidence of a seasoned businessman and healthcare professional with a penetrating look in his one seeing eye (he is blind in the other due to a severe head trauma from his adolescence). With a winning boyishness, he also has a tendency to gesture unpredictably while speaking of the mission of PIM. He explains that his friends and patients were â&#x20AC;&#x153;all living in the darkness of their homes. Society had mandated that they live in their caves of West County, because who they are and what they do is bad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you come into Peace in Medicine, you can feel good about your experience,â&#x20AC;? he continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about coming in and having some choice and being treated like a patient and being provided with customer service and an experience that is honorable and respectable.â&#x20AC;? A broad-smiling and broad-shouldered man in a black PIM polo shirt greets guests on the healing centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plant-festooned front porch. He examines driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licenses and announces through his headset to other similarly bulky men inside that everything checks out. Jacob insists that these men are not security, but rather concierges, hosts or â&#x20AC;&#x153;community liaisons.â&#x20AC;? Inside, PIM looks like any medical clinic with a New Age bentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all avocadogreen walls and bamboo floorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but with a highly distinctive herbal aroma. A front desk clerk inspects a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ID once more and pulls up his file on the computer. A photo of his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license, an ailment description, history and a scanned image of the original recommending letter all show up on the screen. Even though a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s verbal recommendation is legally enough for acquiring medical cannabis, PIM sticks to a strict protocol of written letters only and confirmation phone calls to the recommending doctor, who can suggest cannabis for patients with anything ranging from AIDS to insomnia. After a wait, the patient gets buzzed into the adjacent dispensary room by a pair of towering community liaisons. On one side of the small, bright room, a glistening glass display counter showcases jars of marijuana buds, an array of condensed cannabis (called hash and kief) in small plastic cubes, smoking and vaporizing devices, cannabis brownies, cookies, lollipops, tinctures, transdermal creams, oils, butters and cough drops. On the other side of the room, lush, brilliant green plants rustle gently on shelves across an entire wall. For anyone who has only seen marijuana plants on film, seeing this wall of fragrant, full blooms is a bit like seeing a movie star in the flesh or touching an actual bar of gold. But for the patients and


professionals who fill PIM, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another day in the clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;marijuana blandly on display and perfectly normal. The amount of people for whom this is true is impressive and growing. On a regular afternoon, the dozen or so chairs that line the waiting room are filled with patients. Hundreds of PIM patients also make their livelihood growing and selling plants from home gardens. The dispensary has such high demand that it has recently received the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stamp of approval to open up another location.

Sebasterdam? As part of its expansion, PIM just recently became the North Bay campus of Oaksterdam University. Founded in Oakland in 2007, Oaksterdam (a portmanteau of Oakland and Amsterdam) is the first college to teach the horticulture, history, cooking, business and legal issues of cannabis. In August, PIM employees taught Oaksterdamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weekend seminar to a completely full classroom of some 30 students eager to become the next generation of cannabis entrepreneurs and advocates. Jacob talks of the new Oaksterdam venture with transparent excitement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about empowering our citizens,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about who we are already and not denying that, and letting people come into the light and feel good about themselves.â&#x20AC;? In addition to being a university, Oaksterdam also refers to a specific nineblock section of Oakland populated by cannabis dispensaries, cafes and gift shops, the mascot of which is a skunk on the nod with partially shut eyelids. The North Bay will have to wait and see whether that sluggish skunk and the marijuana tourism trade of Oaksterdam comes to Sebastopol.

Fighting the Feds Not all dispensaries are created equal. Unlike the careful, image-conscious atmosphere at PIM, whose logo favors a lotus flower over a marijuana leaf and whose PR rep advises against using terms like â&#x20AC;&#x153;weedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;getting high,â&#x20AC;? the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t added a new coat of paint to its tiny office space in years and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adverse to tacking up glossy pot-porn posters of extreme cannabis close-ups with glistening THC crystals. If Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peace in Medicine is the new, fresh face of the cannabis movement, Lynette Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana (MAMM) is the slightly aged, veteran one. The Fairfax clinic is the longest standing dispensary in California and the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I signed up for this license in 1996, I thought I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this pot thing forever. Pretty soon, it will be in Walgreenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and whatnot,â&#x20AC;? Shaw says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still hassling us about it all.â&#x20AC;? Shaw worked in the Cannabis Buyers Club, the very first medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco founded in 1994 by trail-blazing cannabis advocates Denis Peron and Dr. Todd Mikuriya, co-authors of Prop. 215. Throughout the early 1990s, Shaw

appeared frequently on cable news speaking of the medical benefits of marijuana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was the straight, white, sound-byte girl,â&#x20AC;? Shaw says.â&#x20AC;&#x153;That nice girl with all the sick people.â&#x20AC;? Shaw became a campaign manager in the original effort to pass Prop. 215 and headed the Marin County office, a tiny suite in a business plaza in Fairfax. When the police raided Peronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s San Francisco dispensary, hundreds of ailing patients came looking to Shaw for help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went and got a pound of pot, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it started,â&#x20AC;? she says of founding her thenillegal club. When 215 passed, Shaw actually got help from the current Fairfax chief of police in drafting up a use permit to make MAMM legal. Shaw has been able to operate and serve her patients for 13 years without interruption, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the federal government hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tried to stop her. Unlike PIM, which has had no federal interference in its business, MAMM has been in federal civil litigation for nearly 12 years. Shaw has appeared in federal court 43 times to defend her right to do business under incredulous Clinton and Bush administrations and a repeatedly dismissive Supreme Court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pay $66,000 in legal fees to fight the Feds,â&#x20AC;? Shaw says of her annual outlay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, the Obama administration wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come after us, and we can finally paint the walls of the club.â&#x20AC;?

High Costs Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle demonstrates the difficulty of operating under the historically confusing liminal space of federalism. Though Attorney General Holder did promise an end to federal raids on California dispensaries, President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drug czar Gil Kerlikowske has claimed that marijuana â&#x20AC;&#x153;has no medical benefit.â&#x20AC;? As recently as this Sept. 11, the DEA raided 14 dispensaries in San Diego and arrested nearly two dozen people alleging that the supposedly medical facilities were actually operated by drug cartels. For dispensaries and patients, a change in the law would be a very welcome thing. Contradictory laws between counties and towns, arbitrary regulations and the high costs of operating a business illegal in the eyes of the federal government plague dispensary owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a dispensary, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying so much, everything costs more,â&#x20AC;? Jacob says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our insurance premiums are way high, and we always get dropped and have to get a new one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a never-ending cycle.â&#x20AC;? Both MAMM and PIM have several attorneys and financial advisers with whom they consult about even the smallest minutiae. For example, when filing taxes, PIM canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deduct any payroll time for the actual selling of cannabis. Employees who work behind the dispensary counter have to calculate how much of their day is spent consulting with patients and how much is spent actually handling money. Law officers, too, frankly admit to frustrations with the current ambiguities of the law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say that laws are much easier to enforce when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re black-and-white. Leaving them vague only makes them hard

:]^fcWT;Pfš<PhQT

In California, possessing 28.5 grams of marijuana or less without a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation is a misdemeanor and could lead to a $100 fine; more could mean a $500 penalty or jail time. For medical marijuana, with a valid doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation, every countyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and some citiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has different limits for possession and cultivation. However, these are not legally binding and act as minimums or guidelines for immunity from prosecution. For more information and updates on marijuana legal guidelines visit:www.norml.org or www.safeaccessnow.org. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quick guide to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (currently) legal with a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical marijuana recommendation: Sonoma Law enforcement follows the Safe Access Guidelines as recommended by the Sonoma Alliance for Medical Marijuana, and ratified by the cities of Santa Rosa and Sebastopol. Possession: Up to three pounds of dried cannabis or conversion per year. Cultivation: No more than a hundred square feet of garden canopy, with a maximum yield of 30 plants. Number of known dispensaries: Five. Guerneville, Santa Rosa and Sebastopol. Marin Possession: Six mature plants or 12 immature plants and eight ounces of bud. (A statewide guideline.) Number of known dispensaries: Seven. Corte Madera, Fairfax, Marin, Novato and Sausalito.

Napa Possession: Six mature plants or 12 immature plants and eight ounces of bud. (A statewide guideline.) Number of known dispensaries: One in Napa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;D.H.

to enforce,â&#x20AC;? Sgt. Stuart Baker of the Fairfax Police Department says. Dispensaries that operate as growing collectives, as both PIM and MAMM do, buy all their cannabis from patients. This can mean that dispensaries have little control over the price of goods and the practice of the actual cannabis cultivation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way for us to regulate anything,â&#x20AC;? Jacob says, adding that PIM does send out products for regular mold testing. Currently, former Sebastopol mayor Craig Litwin has been working on language for a law that would permit the operation of a large-scale nursery in the city. Jacob, with whom Litwin has been in consultation, believes a nursery ordinance could allow for increased transparency, safety and regulation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think other cities are already moving in this direction, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a logical thing to do,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re regulating retail side of cannabis, we should regulate cultivation.â&#x20AC;? Sebastopol Chief of Police Jeffrey Weaver remains skeptical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen armed-marijuana-rip-off after armed-marijuana-rip-off. If they know where marijuana is growing, people will try to rip them off,â&#x20AC;? Weaver says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As chief of police, I have to object.â&#x20AC;? Peace in Medicine and local law enforcement have maintained remarkably good relations. Weaver describes the dispensaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security system as â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly awesome.â&#x20AC;? When asked about the police, Jacob declares, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can

quote me saying how wonderful they are.â&#x20AC;? The two men are in frequent email contact. However, their relationship is not without its tensions and difference of opinion. When asked about an attempted robbery at PIM in May, Jacob bristles a bit, then smiles and declares that media love to point at the one sore point of the dispensaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. He explains that the May incident was part of a crime spree and that PIMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cameras were the only ones to catch footage of the perpetrators and their vehicle. For Jacob, the worst thing that happened before the alarm system sounded was when the perpetrators threw a planter through a window. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They got away with nothing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the safest place. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones who got the assailants caught, where nobody else got them,â&#x20AC;? Jacob says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing was taken. We caught the suspects. We should really talk about how safe and wonderful dispensaries are.â&#x20AC;? Weaver has an altogether bleaker perspective on the event. He describes the shotgun handled by the assailant as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly menacing thing,â&#x20AC;? something out of the Terminator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know for certain that if there was a Peace in Medicine staffer there, they would have been held up at gun point or worse,â&#x20AC;? he says. Weaver explains that his officers were at a traffic stop at the other end of town and missed the fleeing perpetrators by just a few minutes, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;if they were not delayed, our officers would have had a shoot-out.â&#x20AC;?

In Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion, more openness and increased legalization would only curb violence, not intensify it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eleven thousand people were murdered in Mexico over illegal drugs this year,â&#x20AC;? she charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they had a license to grow marijuana, maybe that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;?

In her illustrious career as an advocate and dispensary owner, Shaw has received her fair share of death threats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Needless to say, I have an alarm on my front law now,â&#x20AC;? she says drily. When she first acquired her license to dispense cannabis legally, growers operating huge, illegal farms in Mendocino County feared that legalization could bring down the cost of the product and challenge their business, and duly sent all sorts of intimidations Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. That threat of violence has since ebbed, but within the cannabis community, what their industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future will look like and who will be included to profit is still hotly debated. The three cannabis-related ballot initiatives currently working their way through the California Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office demonstrate the lack of clear consensus on how best to reform and develop existing laws. The California Legalize, Regulate, and Tax Marijuana Initiative, the first to be released into circulation by the attorney general on Sept. 9, may be the most far-reaching of the three. The initiative, proposed by a group called the California Cannabis Initiative, would repeal all state laws prohibiting marijuana for anyone over 21, and would therefore be taxed and handled similarly to alcohol. Additionally, it would expunge all prior marijuana-related convictions and potentially reduce the prison population drastically. The initiative has less than 150 days to collect 433,971 signatures if it will appear on the ballot in Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 general election. The other two initiatives still await release into circulation and have somewhat different tactics toward legalization. The Common Sense Act also repeals marijuana laws, gives the legislature a year to pass tax regulations but puts more pressure on the state to work with the federal government to end the national prohibition. Finally, the Regulate, Control and Tax Act, co-authored by Oaksterdam University founder Richard Lee, would also treat the sale, possession and cultivation of marijuana much like alcohol. However, this initiative would leave it up to individual cities and counties to decide if they want to indeed regulate and tax the drug. Some bloggers have raised concern that the preponderance of cannabis initiatives might divide support and risk failure for any of the three. But for Richard Lee, the more, the merrier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more people working on initiatives, the more attention it brings to process, the more cannabis prohibition should be appealed,â&#x20AC;? Lee says.

Even though he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decided on which initiative to support, Jacob hopes that any increased taxation of cannabis will come with some additional benefit to his patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oakland has a 1.8 sales tax, but they also have an office of medical cannabis,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fully in support of a tax because it supports the local community, but I also believe that patients whom youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taxing should get something in return.â&#x20AC;? Besides disagreement about the specifics of increased legalization, growing acceptance and facility in doing â&#x20AC;&#x153;cannabusinessâ&#x20AC;? has raised some unease among certain growers and dispensary owners over competition. Chief Weaver of Sebastopol received a surprising phone call after he publicly expressed concern about large-scale nurseries. A man who had converted his garage into a small home nursery was calling the chief to say thanks. If the town approved a large-scale commercial grower, this man and hundreds of growers like him would be out of business. In Oakland, some dispensaries have opposed granting permits to new cannabis operations, fearing the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s openness might challenge existing businesses financial stability. Besides a rumored boycott of one such new-permit-protesting dispensary, no death threats have been reported.

Is It Medicine? On Highway 101 in Rohnert Park, a huge billboard looms above the freeway that reads in gigantic yellow and green letters â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medical Marijuana Evaluations.â&#x20AC;? When calling the phone number printed on the billboard, a cheerful, and somewhat forceful, womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice answers plainly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medical Marijuana.â&#x20AC;? At $95 and in 30 minutes, this particular establishment offers one of the fastest and cheapest evaluations for marijuana recommendations. Its receptionist insists that you book a time soon because they do fill up fast. Of all facets of the cannabis industry, the facility with which most patients receive recommendations raises the most eyebrows. One of the sticking points for many who feel ambivalent about medical marijuana is that it seems like anyone can get a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation for just about anything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My belief is the majority of people who are using medical marijuana are not truly objectively in need of marijuana at all,â&#x20AC;? Chief Weaver says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just using it medically for cover from the law.â&#x20AC;? Spending an hour in Peace in Medicine, one can observe a whole range of patients seeking cannabis, many of whom would appear to give the police chief â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suspicions some credence. In the dispensary, a heavy-set middle-aged man with a cane peers into the glass display cases right alongside two tan, young women in shorts and flip-flops and a whole slew of â&#x20AC;&#x153;able-bodied young men.â&#x20AC;? This last classification of patients frequently gets thrown up as evidence of the posturing surrounding medical marijuana. In response to arguments like these, Jacob rolls his eyes in exasperation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have one 21-year-old patient whose parents were killed in a car accident and

suffers from PTSD. Before he was using medical cannabis, he was on Xanax and Klonopin and Reperitol and about 18 different pharmaceuticals,â&#x20AC;? Jacob says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;able-bodied young men.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Though its medical value remains somewhat contested, the amount of scientific research on cannabis currently underway provides the movement a sturdy fount of potential evidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an explosive area of scientific research, every week there about 50 journal articles that come out, â&#x20AC;&#x153; journalist Martin Lee says. He explains that the endocannabinoid system in our brain, which relates to memory, pain and appetite and may respond uniquely to the THC found in marijuana and lead to a wide variety of useful discoveries. Determining the actual medicinal values and particular applications of cannabis may prove a central role in deciding its ultimate legal status and if it will eventually stock the shelves of drugstores or supermarkets. In its current broad use as an aid to everyone from cancer patients to people with mild insomnia, cannabis does challenge traditional ideas about medicine. However, it does what at its core all medicine should do: it helps people. Before she owned a cannabis dispensary, Lynette Shaw was on welfare and recovering from severe spousal abuse, including permanent neck injuries from strangulation. Anorexic and wracked with depression, Shaw attempted suicide at the age of 24. She survived and had the luck of meeting medical marijuanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earliest proponents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I had marijuana, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the terrible nightmares,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I had regular access, all of a sudden my symptoms abated. I stopped being suicidal and stopped being anorexic.â&#x20AC;? At PIM, Jacob also sees legal marijuana as a means of reaching out to the disenfranchised and marginalized, because he, too, was once there. At 17, Jacob lived in San Francisco homeless shelters until he got work at a health clinic for street youth. From there, he worked at needle-exchange clinics and centers for gay and lesbian youth. For him, working with cannabis patients connects directly to that early work with those marginalized groups. He still sees people who feel a tremendous amount of shameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;patients who live in fear of their neighbors finding out they use cannabis. Fighting some of the residual stigma of marijuana use is central to PIMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission, which explains much of its carefulness with language and self-image. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What inspires me is empowering people,â&#x20AC;? Jacob says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to allow people to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am a medical cannabis patients, I want to be recognized.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? One such cannabis patient, a frizzy-whitehaired woman named Hazel, knows well the empowering nature of the drug. Standing in the waiting room of the MAMM, she proclaimed proudly without being asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a cancer survivor. All us old broads are here for cancer. This place is fabulous!â&#x20AC;? Clutching a small paper bag of shake, Hazel marched out the door into the sunny Marin County afternoon with plans to get real high. She was going to hike up a mountain.

5X[\5[XVWcb Napa Sonoma Wine Country Film Festival screens the new and the famous By Gretchen Giles

t was just the kind of deeply dull day that sometimes sparks inspiration. Petaluma filmmaker Mike Dacko was bored at work, naturally enough listening to Jethro Tullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moths,â&#x20AC;? musing that the light that draws the insects is the light that kills the insects. A model-maker who spent seven years in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;collegeâ&#x20AC;? that an immersion at LucasArts provides, Dacko zoned out to Ian Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trippy flute and began to envision a film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to use moths, because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough personality,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so I began to imagine this waxy form and these creatures that go on this journey where they are both self less and selfish.â&#x20AC;? Lightheaded, the resulting story, is a five-minute animated film that follows the life cycle of creatures on a wax planet who are activated when a comet hits the surface and they come brief ly to life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These creatures are satisfied with how they start out in life, dancing around the f lame, but eventually they want more,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to discover what else there is in life, and the curiosity draws them out. Of course, the more chances you take, the more danger you

can find yourself in, and they had to figure out what their purpose was and how to achieve their goal which was to create another species of their own.â&#x20AC;? Indie faves Thievery Corporation kindly provided the soundtrack, but the rest of the budget, Dacko says, was meted out in sheer time. All told, it took Dacko 10 years to create. Such individual effort begins to pay off when Lightheaded is screened at the opening night gala of the Napa Sonoma Wine Country Film Festival, running at various indoor and outdoor venues Sept. 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 in Sonoma County and Sept. 24â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27 in Napa County. With a strong emphasis on ecological programming and social issues, the NSWCFF also highlights such other North Bay residents as Pascal Destandau and Eric Smith, two former executives who gave it all up to start Pugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leap, a Healdsburg goat operation specializing in artisanal cheese. They are profiled in Leap of Faith, screening Sept. 19 in Kenwood. Glen Ellen producers April and Glenn Bucksbaum present their documentary on the challenges and pleasures of creating the Marine Life Protection Act in A Sheltered Sea: Southern Passage, screening in Sonoma on Sept. 20.

Other highlights include Michael Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capitalism: A Love Story (Sept. 20) and painter-turned-director Peter Greenawayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first installment of the series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nine Classical Paintings Revisited,â&#x20AC;? this one an explication of Rembrandtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Night Watch called Rembrandt Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Accuse (also Sept. 20). This is Dackoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third film festival, Lightheaded having been recently screened in Rhode Island and Petaluma. His decade of labor is finally returning its fruit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;without a boxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; marketing,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone who has a film without a box can submit it to festivals, and then you wait patiently by the email. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the part thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of addictive, because once you start getting accepted, you want more. Promoting it is the best part; you get to participate and meet other directors.â&#x20AC;? But he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cleared and dusted the awards mantle yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Dacko says simply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;have any delusions of grandeur.â&#x20AC;? The Napa Sonoma Wine Country Film Fest runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 17 and 24â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27. For details, go to www.wcff.us.

The Rep teams with Conrad Bishop to bring â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tempestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to detailed life By David Templeton

ccording to director Conrad Bishop, his â&#x20AC;&#x153;professional connectionâ&#x20AC;? to Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tempest has become more than just professional. After working for over a year on an innovative puppet-driven interpretation of the fantasyisland favorite, Bishop admits that The Tempest has officially become an obsession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was never that interested in The Tempest,â&#x20AC;? he explains, taking a short break from rehearsing at his Sebastopol studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only Shakespeare Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve directed up until now is Macbeth, a show we did for many, many years, but when I started thinking about The Tempest, I realized that the challenge would be working out a real and true ending that involves forgiveness, rebirth and resurrection. When the Sonoma County Repertory Theatre suggested co-producing a version of The Tempest well over a year ago, it restarted that whole thought process. In 40 years of theater, this is the most time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever spent on a project.â&#x20AC;? The Tempest, which opens a five-week run at the Rep starting this weekend, is both typical and atypical for Bishop, whose Independent Eye troupe has built a reputation for innovative and visually stunning

adaptations of classical stories and myths. With this uniquely eye-popping take on Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story, Bishop is collaborating with the Repâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dependable stable of actors, most of whom (Dan Saski, Benjamin Stowe) have never worked with puppets to such an advanced degree. Adding to the challenge, Bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style of performance requires the actors to be masked, forcing them to express through subtle movements the range of emotions they traditionally convey through facial expression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The style we use,â&#x20AC;? Bishop explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;employs characters with heads that are life-size and bodies at three-quarter size. The actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand goes into the head, so the actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrist becomes the neck. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very visceral style, in terms of gesture and movement, and it demands that the actors learn a whole new kind of physicality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finding that relationship between movement and gesture,â&#x20AC;? he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a very complicated thing for some actors. The puppet is dead if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not moving, so for the actor, finding out how much movement is essential is vital.â&#x20AC;? Bishop says that the Rep actors have demonstrated a particularly strong aptitude for this hyperdetailed brand of puppet manipulation. Having worked with first-timers often, Bishop is proud of how far the actors have come in such a relatively short time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some actors never find the channel through to the immense power of the puppet,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but everyone seems to be really enjoying it. This kind of advanced, full-body puppetry forces you to embrace an intense simplicity of movement. I believe they will all discover that this process has made them even better actors.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the performances at the Rep, The Tempest will tour several local high schools, an effort made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Another fascinating side project to the development of the show is the online blog (Bishop calls it his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Survival Logâ&#x20AC;?) that chronicles his own thoughts and artistic evolution throughout the process of bringing The Tempest to life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thought for years about trying to chronicle my projects in some way,â&#x20AC;? he remarks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to tell with electrons the story of how we make a show. With The Tempest, the blog has been very useful in forcing me to think about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going through my mind. I often start writing, and I think nothing much has been on my mind, but then I learn, after a few minutes, that I have, in fact, had quite a lot on my mind. Blogging has been very interesting and incredibly valuable. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve discovered that, aside from the self-expression it makes possible, blogging is, at its heart, a process of intense forced objectivity. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a magical thing for an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m creating a show about magic and wonder.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Tempestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct. 18 at Sonoma County Repertory Theater, 104 N.

7^[h^a2aPih

A foreigner gets caught between dangerous men and her own feelings in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Richard von Busack

;

orna (Arta Dobroshi), the heroine of Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silence, seems to be an average, poor young girl in urban Belgium, a part-time employee at a dry-cleaning plant. But Lorna is Albanian, not Belgian, and she has married a citizen for money, sponsored in this citizenship racket by dangerous Russians who have further plans for her. Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband is a shambling addict named Claudy (JĂŠrĂŠmie Renier), a perennially junk-sick blonde scarecrow who is unable to clean up. She treats Claudy like a messy and disliked child. The marriage is in the final days, since her citizenship will be official soon. Complicating matters further, Lorna has a boyfriend waiting for her married life to end. Once she has her citizenship, Lorna decides the best way out of the marriage is to get an automatic divorce, under the law that grants one to a battered wife. But if Claudy canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control his habit, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not violent; he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring himself to hit her, even if she tells him to do it. He cares for Lorna, his wife in name only. Reacting to his emotional turmoil, Lorna makes an impulsive gesture. She tries everything she knows to save Claudy from his drugs, at the risk of dooming herself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to announce that the new Dardenne brothers offering is a major film, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a goodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sometimes damned goodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;story, based on an authentic-sounding criminal scam that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made it into the movies before. Telling it, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne violate their previous furtiveness and subtlety, those qualities that made them by miles the most interesting filmmakers alive when charting the troubling demands of a Christian ethos.

In an interview, co-director Luc says that Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silence is about â&#x20AC;&#x153;a religious believer of sorts, even if God is dead.â&#x20AC;? That the theme can be made just this explicit is the problem. People who say this kind of thing donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe God is dead. And they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw much of a bone to those who never thought God was alive in the first place. One wonders if the Dardennes (The Son, The Promise) are taken by the Romanian New Wave, or if Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silence might be a kind of answer movie to 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days. Dobroshi, a Kosovar actress with a long string of film and theater credits, does a terrific job of holding this film together; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just remoteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and silentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;enough to make us almost believe Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turnaround. Ideally, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have it both ways. The Christian viewers could feel that they were seeing a miraculous softening of a hard heart. The more worldly viewers could feel that they were watching a tale of how kindness is a virtue only the well-fed can afford. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always best in a film to never be able to tell whether a person is holy or crazy. A way we ought to be able to see Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silence is this: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a girl who cracks under the strain of a dangerous scam, and who manifests this crackup by acts of compassion. But the film teeters into behavior we have to take on faith because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absurd: a sudden sacrifice, a sudden conversion to belief in the sanctity of all life (even unborn life). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sharp turn this movie canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite execute, and it means that for the first time the Dardennes can be accused of melodrama. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lornaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Silenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Sept. 18, at the Rialto Cinemas Lakeside, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

I Need Your Skull

Erosion Explosion

If the latest Indiana Jones movie is to be believed, ancient crystal skulls have the ability to summon aliens, stir up crazy amounts of huge fire ants and cause an enormous sinkhole. But what do we really know about these dubious artifacts? To answer the question, DaEl Walker, director of the Crystal Awareness Institute, prefers decidedly unscientific methodologies, using â&#x20AC;&#x153;meditation, prayer, chanting, light, color, music, incense and other stimulations to open up the skulls to release their information.â&#x20AC;? Walker leads a three-part series on â&#x20AC;&#x153;ancientâ&#x20AC;? crystal skulls, beginning with 1927, the year the famed Mitchell-Hedges skull was discovered, and moving into modern-day crystal skulls â&#x20AC;&#x153;activated and charged by the ancient ones.â&#x20AC;? Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was goofy fun, but Walker is dead serious when he leads a daylong seminar on Sunday, Sept. 20, at the Marin Center. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;4:15pm. $15 per session; $35 all day. 415.499.6800.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to talk about the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental decline, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another much more impressive experience viewing it first-hand. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Changing Earth: Photographersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Call to Actionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; showcases photographers whose work chronicles on film the slow erosion of our planet, including Daniel Beltra (photographer of the series Amazon: Forest at Risk), Camille Seaman (Melting Awayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;The Last Iceberg), John Trotter (No Agua, No Vida: The Thirsty Colorado River Delta), Benjamin Drummond (Facing Climate Change: Global Change, Local People) and others. Sponsored by Blue Earth, an organization committed to raising public awareness of our environment through photography, and the Ansel Adams Gallery, Changing Earth collects breathtaking images of deserts, rivers, wildlife and rainforests to tell the story of where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re headed. A sparkling wine reception takes place on Saturday, Sept. 19, at Mumm Napa Winery. 8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford. 6:30pm. Free. 707.967.7700.

Flicking Clint Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rough ride, this music business. The first time Australian native Clint Crighton came to L.A., he was mugged. The second time, the singersongwriter apparently came prepared, and actually stabbed his attacker in self-defense. Crightonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiences with California have been better as of late, what with recording his latest album with Bob Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old violinist Scarlet Rivera and winning over a sold-out crowd opening for Sheryl Crow in Santa Rosa earlier this month. Outside in the lobby, he sold 176 copies of his CD at the merch table, so he must be doing something right, owing in part to his tenacious spiritâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he cut a management deal after sneaking in backstage at a Toto concert to meet his hero, Steve Lukather. Before making a big splash at the Sheryl Crow show, Crighton booked a small coffeehouse show, and expect it to be full for his KZST-friendly serenades of love, family and friendship on Thursday, Sept. 17, at Aroma Roasters. 95 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8pm. Free. 707.576.7765.

Strong Persuader The 1980s are the undisputable heyday of MTV, with videos both revered for their vision (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thrillerâ&#x20AC;?), their concept (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bastards of Youngâ&#x20AC;?) and for their lovable cheesiness (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gonna Stop Us Nowâ&#x20AC;?). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to remember that some artists didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about MTV, and Robert Cray is one such musician. Witness â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smoking Gun,â&#x20AC;? a video that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decide what it wants to be. Cray appears in some frames on a soundstage, lip-synching his song with lighting and a sharp purple blazer, while interspersed are grainy, subtitled amateur shots from blues festivals, recording sessions and front porches. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit Cray, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always intentionally given his music and image a smooth patina, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reminder that the best way to see the Grammy-winning blues revivalist is live and in person, on Monday, Sept. 21, at the Mystic Theatre. 21 Petaluma Blvd. N, Petaluma. 8pm. $35. 707.765.2121.

The Avett Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new album t was the exact revelation that music festivals are designed to provide. The Avett Brothers, about whom Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d known next to nothing, took the stage at last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Outside Lands festival in Golden Gate Park and proceeded to blow my mind, song by song, brain cell by brain cell. Banging away on banjo, standup bass and guitar, singing the most locked-in-step mountain harmonies since the Louvin Brothers and working a kickdrum and hi-hat with their feet, they completely overtook me. They were â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thunder Road,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Death or Gloryâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foggy Mountain Topâ&#x20AC;? all wrapped in one passionate, gritty, stringbreaking performance of sweat and heart. The Avett Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new album, I and Love and You, out this week, is produced by Rick Rubin, who is famous for capturing on tape the true, unadorned performances of artists from Johnny Cash to Slayer. The record certainly has a warm, being-in-the-same-room atmosphere that Rubin has always easily created, but the live energy is gone. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem with I and Love and You, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that the Avetts themselves were too cautiously prepared; no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picky in front of thousands, but perfectionism thrives in front of a foam-core studio sound bafďŹ&#x201A;e. In the recording business, this is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-production,â&#x20AC;? the task of poring over rough demos, rearranging choruses and making everything sound nice before recording. Preproduction is essentially editing before the editor gets a hold of things, and Rubin, the famously nonediting editor, would likely have counseled against it. That said, nighttimes spent in studio apartments with cheap beer and broken pencils now have a new soundtrack. Comprising almost entirely slow, pensive songs, I and Love and You swings from lonesome to hopeful and back again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Perfect Spaceâ&#x20AC;? imagines a house-clearing of drunk hangers-on in exchange for â&#x20AC;&#x153;friends that I can trust, that love me for the man Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become, not the man I was,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;January Weddingâ&#x20AC;? is a simple, literary explanation for matrimony: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound too insane when I say there is darkness all around us,â&#x20AC;? sings Scott Avett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel weak, but I do need sometimes for her to protect me and re-connect me to the beauty that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m missing.â&#x20AC;? On record, the song is a candle, lit in honor of those who ďŹ ll our brittle cracks, made for the moments when we wind down together. Onstage, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unruly as hell.

=^a\P[ FWX\bh The Meat Puppetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; secret mainstream pop side

By Karl Byrn

F

hatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a name? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the Meat Puppets, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less than people think. For the general public and diehard fans alike, the very name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meat Puppetsâ&#x20AC;? suggests something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s askew and absurd, certainly demented, perhaps even grotesquely extreme. The Phoenix, Ariz., trio indeed earned their status as subculture icons during alternarockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s heyday, exploding from an un-hip regional market as psychedelicized â&#x20AC;&#x153;cowpunkâ&#x20AC;? roots weirdoes; they were essentially hardcore desert stoner nerds covering Johnny Cash and speeding up â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tumbling Tumbleweeds.â&#x20AC;? But the arc of their career and music reveals the Meat Puppets, who play Sept. 20 at the Hopmonk Tavern, as much more mainstream. After releasing the acclaimed and inf luential classics Meat Puppets II and Up on the Sun on the storied indie label SST in 1984 and 1985, the Puppets cruised until catching the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s post-Nirvana wave of indie bands signing to major labels, scoring their biggest hit, the 1994 album Too High to Die and its burly dude-rock single â&#x20AC;&#x153;Backwater.â&#x20AC;? Acclaim soared for the band when Kurt Cobain picked three songs from Meat

Puppets II to perform on Nirvanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MTV Unplugged in New York, but the Puppets dissolved soon thereafter. In predictable rock tradition, guitarist Curt Kirkwood attempted to reform the group with new members, and later pursued inconsequential side projects. His brother, bassist Cris Kirkwood, also followed a predictable rock-star path, trudging his way through drug tragedies and scuff les with the law. But the Kirkwood brothers have endured, albeit with clichĂŠd touches; in true Spinal Tap fashion, their current reunion tour even features a new drummer. For a 30-year-old rock band, this story is pretty normal. Likewise, beneath the surface, the Meat Puppetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quirky music is deceptively straightforward. Their art has never been excessively hardcore or abjectly Dadaist, but has instead carried a more familiar, gentle Magical Mystery Tour poprock charm, and those charms abound on their new 2009 disc Sewn Together, their second reunion disc following 2007â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scrappier Rise to Your Knees. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a chugging rock crunch on cuts like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blanket of Weedsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;S.K.A.,â&#x20AC;? with tracks often running out in warmly layered, mildly psychedelic drones. The sharp banjo riff that propels the train-track rhythm of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Not Youâ&#x20AC;? is unusual but clear. The silly whistling ditty â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Monkey and the Snakeâ&#x20AC;? moves effortlessly from the sublime to the ridiculous in a mere two verses, noting first the profundity that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it takes a while to never understandâ&#x20AC;? and then goofing that â&#x20AC;&#x153;now the monkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singing in a band.â&#x20AC;? Better yet, the Puppetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; signature twists on folk-rock and country-rock lead to sweet, mature moments of indelible pop songwriting. Sincerely thoughtful ref lections rise above any dabbling in absurdity on the sober piano ballad â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smoke,â&#x20AC;? as the band bemusedly states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the good times are for hire / But not by anyone . . . I know thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stars in the sky / But smoke has made it hard to see tonight.â&#x20AC;? The title track is lilting, melodic, chiming folk-rock worthy of Buffalo Springfield or the Byrds, while the simple, shuff ling singalong love song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Mountainâ&#x20AC;? sounds like a shoulda-been Steve Miller hit. Are the Meat Puppets really earnest hit-makers whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hiding their mainstream talents all these years? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Mountainâ&#x20AC;? would have been a hit for any artist in the pre-punk, pre-hip-hop â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s era of Top 40 radio, and yet the Meat Puppets are products of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s underground era, when cutting-edge rock bands didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be part of the mainstream. The name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meat Puppetsâ&#x20AC;? itself may have been the best act of rebellion the Arizona punks could muster, their one flagrant smokescreen sent to convince the underground that they were hardcore freaks. But after three decades of cool, childlike folk-rock, the smokescreen is gone, finally revealing instead a band with a pure and pleasing pop heart. The Meat Puppets bring their whimsical normalcy to headline with the Dead Confederate, a dark, brittle roots guitar band from Athens, Ga., and Ume, a modern rock trio with a pumping gothdance edge, on Sunday, Sept. 20, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 707.829.7300.

From the Book Fest to the Poetry Fest to the readings to the releases he Sonoma County Book Festival enters its 10th year proud to trumpet that reading (and even publishing) have received exaggerated reports of demise. Attracting thousands of lit lovers to downtown Santa Rosa each year, the Book Festival features panel discussions, author readings, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events and a really great marketplace that showcases self-published works, small presses, cool zines and a vibrant word-positive culture. This year, look for Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly Mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dale Dougherty, the editor and publisher of the innovative DIY culture mag Make, to discuss the wildly successful Maker Faire and other elements of take-it-back culture at the Sonoma County Library. Also inside will be historian and emeritus Press Democrat columnist Gaye LeBaron, mom-memoirists Izzy Rose and Tasha Blaine as well as novelists Gerald Rosen (Cold Eye, Warm Heart) and Bart Schneider (Man in the Blizzard), who is shown above. In Courthouse Square, poets take the day and there will be a storyteller installed at the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tent. Saturday, Sept. 19, from 10am to 4pm, downtown Santa Rosa. Free. www.socobookfest.org. On Sunday, Sept. 20, travel to Petaluma to get more poetry on, as the Petaluma Poetry Walk commences at 10am at the arts center and moves to various venues throughout the downtown area. Obvious high points are Greg Sarris reading at the Apple Box at 1pm and Bill Berkson at Copperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books at 3pm. The surprising pleasures are yours to divine. The day ends with fiveminute plays at the Aqus Cafe at the Foundry Wharf from 6pm. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all free. Call 707.762.0563 for details. The fall publishing season is kind of crazy-hot this year, with everyone from A. S. Byatt to Nick Hornby to Margaret Atwood to Jon Krakauer releasing new works as if people will actually, you know, purchase and read them. Copperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is preparing for the inky deluge by hosting a Hot Books Preview Night on Thursday, Sept. 24, for the public to meet with sales reps from five different publishing houses to get the straight smooth pitch on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best use of your $24.99 this season. 140 Kentucky St., Petaluma. 7pm to 9pm. Free. 707.762.0563. Copperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has also opened its Classics and Monsters mash-up writing contest in which poor Jane Austen will find her brilliant and subtle character studies regularly denuded by giant sea squid and the like. You know who you are. See details at www.copperfieldsbooks.com. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Miss: Novelist Nicholson Baker reading from his latest, The Anthologist (Sept. 16 at 7pm), and poet Kim Addonizio with her new Lucifer at the Starlite: Poems (Sept. 22 at 7pm), both at Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. Free. 415.927.0960.

ACNVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michelle Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last Open Studios an, are we going to miss Michelle Williams. By â&#x20AC;&#x153;we,â&#x20AC;? I refer to every artist and art lover in the Napa Valley, as well as those who think that there should be more to do in the Napa area than just put stuff in your mouth. The executive director of the Arts Council Napa Valley (ACNV) for the past five years, Williams has just announced her resignation in order to take the executive director spot at the Cultural Council of Santa Cruz. Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gain is our loss, though the North Bay has had an excellent half-decade run of Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; business-like intelligence. She has brought health insurance to ACNV members, introduced an art-inthe-schools program, initiated the Commission Arts and Culture and launched an artist registry as well as revitalizing the area with an economic-impact study relating the arts to the economy. And these are just a few of her accomplishments. Making the ACNV an umbrella organization overseeing the disparate art-related nonprofits in the valley, Williams has brought the annual Open Studios eventâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this year slated for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 and 26â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27â&#x20AC;&#x201D;screaming into the 21st century by instituting a juried entrance system, overseeing exhibition and artist studio spaces and by encouraging a higher level of work for the program. As part of her ongoing commitment to reminding civic leaders that art has a rightful spot in the economy, she is this year canvassing not only artists but Open Studio visitors to discover how much bounty is indeed brought into the county when one travels to Napa, stays overnight, inevitably chooses to eat and tours the studios. Unlike the Arts Council of Sonoma County, which tracks to the penny the amount spent and the number of visitors streaming through their ARTrails open studios event, this is just the second year that Napa has tried to suss the figures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to demonstrate the economic impact of the arts,â&#x20AC;? Williams says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to have this information to make the case to our civic leaders.â&#x20AC;? William leaves her post on Sept. 30, assuredly having made her case. Arts Council Napa Valley present a self-guided, fine-art discovery tour featuring 88 talented artists in their own studios, Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 and 26â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27, from 10am to 5pm.

Meet Jill • Cat of the Week

Place your pet related ad here today! Call 707.527.1200

Don’t let this black mustache fool you, because this sweet and loving cat is all lady! Jill got off to a rough start in life and lost part of her rear right leg when she was a kitten. At just two years old Jill has a lot of love left to give and is waiting for a snuggle bug to take her home. To learn more about adopting Jill or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 126pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org The Adoption Center is open 7 days a week from 12PM - 6PM and is located at 5345 Highway 12 West, Santa Rosa (just 5 miles west of Hwy 101 @ Llano Rd) www.sonomahumane.org

Meet Tiki • Cat of the Week

Meet Lucy • Dog of the Week

This wistful little munchkin is gorgeous, with beautiful coloring and sweet green eyes. She's soft as silk to pet and very loving and affectionate, once she's been properly introduced to you. Her momma brought her up properly with good manners and respect for her elders! www.sonomahumane.org. To learn more about adopting Tiki or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 126pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org

This young girl has the luscious brown eyebrows of a Rottweiler but may have a bit of hound in her background. At just one year old, Lucy is a bit shy and would prefer not to share your attention with another dog. She loves to play but you won’t have to start training for a marathon to keep her busy. You’ll love Lucy! To learn more about adopting Lucy or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 12-6pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org
