I have a degree in ethnic studies from Humboldt State University. I believe that the mock article on Buju Banton is nothing more than slander (â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Hate, One Fear,â&#x20AC;? Dec. 2). He is an individual and his music is religious. Why not be critical of those who belong to a Christian church and speak out against homosexuality? I am not homophobic myself, but I respect that not everybody shares my beliefs. I love reggae music. Why not highlight the conscious, Godloving music that Buju writes? There is a lot of good that could have been written about, but the author chose to label it hate. Only one paragraph talks about the religion of Rastafarianism. This article targeted uneducated readers, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s racist.

A well-done if sad story about the decline of a music that was long about human rights, spirituality and positivity. For nearly two decades, I was privileged to be a journalist, volunteer and then staff member backstage at Reggae on the River in Humboldt County. It was a warm, exciting place to be. But when â&#x20AC;&#x153;dancehallâ&#x20AC;? artists began to show up, the entire vibration changed for the worse. Beyond the homophobia your piece explores, there was rampant sexism, hard drug use and general thuggery. Perhaps most ironic was the racist disdain â&#x20AC;&#x153;singersâ&#x20AC;? such as Capleton and Bounty Killer would express towards their own (white) fans; it was clear that, should such fans ever venture into the Jamaican strongholds of dancehall â&#x20AC;&#x153;culture,â&#x20AC;? theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d likely regret it. Thus, like many longtime lovers of true roots reggae, I lament the downfall of the music in generalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but, it must be added, the Boonville Sierra Nevada Music Festival does keep the faith

<0GG5A843A827 ?4C0;D<0

Rastafarianism arose from Judaism and Christianity, as Buju himself could probably confirm were he not currently locked up in Florida on suspicion of purchasing massive amounts of cocaine from a DEA officer. Oh, wheel of karmaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;turn and turn!

each June with mostly wonderful lineups of positive music.

BD2770=3HC8?B Rather then commiserate about the difficulty of opening clamshell packaging or trying to engage legislators to solve another of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little problems, why not use the occasion to adapt and enjoy life in a creative way? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shell Shock,â&#x20AC;? Dec. 9.) If these difficult-to-open packages are a challenge to common household tools and common dexterity, why not purchase a good set of heavy-duty scissors or maybe a rotary Dremel tool equipped with a saw blade? Then one can hone oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual abilities by performing the opening operation without damage to oneself or the items inside. The more of a test this may be, the more it becomes a rewarding learning experience. Personally, I find using a propane torch with pinpoint accuracy to burn through the packaging extremely gratifying. Be sure to do this outdoors, the fumes may be noxious, and be fire safe, which adds another degree of difficulty and some more challenging enjoyment.

This is how bad things happen to good people: A â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? on Proposition 8 meant â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Gay Marriage.â&#x20AC;? A â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? on Prop. 8 meant â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please Marry Early and Often!â&#x20AC;? Lots of non-Mormon voters had trouble figuring it out. We memorized itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for a while. And so it was that we were busily editing reader Joe Arcangeliniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dec. 9 letter (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Murder Musicâ&#x20AC;?) and felt assured that a no on Prop. 8 meant â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Second-Class Citizens!â&#x20AC;? and so used the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;defeat.â&#x20AC;? Mr. Arcangelini rushes to correct. A week or so later, so do we. And furthermore . . . Richard von Busack actually reads this paper, laden as it is with his film reviews. He stoutly retorts that The Imaginairum of Dr. Parnassus support-site staffer Theresa Shell is wrong about him being wrong (Letters, Dec. 2). He writes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The novelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title is The Circus of Dr. Lao, and I hardly suggested Heath Ledger starred in that 1960whatever-it-was movie. Heckola!â&#x20AC;? Heckola, indeed.

;8CC;46DHCAH Michael Carnacchi, a Sebastopol custom boot maker who owns the Apple Cobbler, is representing himself against the government and Citibank.

A Sebastopol boot maker takes on Citibank and the U.S. government over the legalities of credit card debt By Suzanne Daly

>

n a warm October morning, Michael Carnacchi stands respectfully in the Sonoma County Civil Court as his case, Carnacchi v. Citibank, is called. A boot maker by trade, on this day he sports a black suit and tie, and his hair is neatly kept back into a waist-length ponytail. The presiding judge, the Honorable Mark Tansil, also wears black as he sits behind an imposing desk decorated with a tiny pumpkin. A uniformed deputy sits nearby, watching the proceedings attentively. Carnacchi is petitioning to change his civil suit to a federal case. The judge asks him if he has a lawyer and when

told â&#x20AC;&#x153;no,â&#x20AC;? asks if Carnacchi is a lawyer or has ever studied law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m representing myself, your honor,â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi replies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent thousands of hours studying the subject.â&#x20AC;? Judge Tansil smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thousands of hours?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, your honor,â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi replies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thousands of hours?â&#x20AC;? the judge repeats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, hundreds of hours,â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi admits, to smiles all around. In representing himself, Michael Carnacchi must have a sense of humor, the ability to adapt quickly and an obsession for his cause. His case is one of many that are repeatedly reported in the daily papersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; credit card debt and credit card companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

egregious mismanagement of their clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accounts. But his case differs dramatically in one major aspect: Carnacchi is actively fighting these injustices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Michael is pushing a big boulder up a steep hill,â&#x20AC;? says Alan Cone, a civil practice attorney who finds Carnacchiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case fascinating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bright as hell, reads tons and prepares his documents well. He has passion, intelligence and a supportable, ingenious argument. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defending himself in court, which is incredibly difficult to do.â&#x20AC;? And whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every indication that he might actually have a case. For five years, Carnacchi had a faultless record with his Citibank credit card &%

account. He had a perfect payment history and was never late with his minimum monthly payment of $213 on a balance of $14,233.54. In December â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07, however, his payment was four days late. When Carnacchiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s January â&#x20AC;&#x2122;08 statement arrived, it showed a new balance almost $600 higher than December had, totaling $14,851.03. Most shockingly, his minimum monthly payment had been increased by 575 percent to $1,224.52 per month, and his interest rate went from 2.99 to 31.24 percent. He called Citibank, and citing his previous unsullied record, asked them to reverse the charges. He was refused and told that the interest rate could not be adjusted. When Carnacchi pointed out that increasing it was an adjustment, the representative answered that they could increase it but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decrease it. After a multitude of phone calls trying to negotiate an affordable payment plan, Carnacchi told Citibank that he would make no further payments until they reversed the rates and charges. Three months later, his monthly payment had increased to $3,132.12, almost 15 times the amount of his original payments. He contacted a lawyer, and together they concluded that his options were to declare himself insolvent or fight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could declare bankruptcy and still keep my business and walk away clean with a brand-new start, but I see an injustice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening to thousands of people,â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need to fight first before I just lie down and take the easy road. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost me almost everything I have because it takes so much of my time. But if I end up losing, at least I can say I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go down without a fight.â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi started exploring the very core of U.S. law, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. A section of the Eighth Amendment prohibits the federal government from imposing excessive fines, and this clause caught his interest. He noted the connection between the U.S. Treasury purchasing $45 billion of preferred stock in Citigroup and using it as collateral for the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bailout money. Citibank accepted the bailout under the Trouble Assets Relief Program, and the sale of the stock effectively made the federal government part owner of the bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 575 percent increase in my payments and the fact that the bank made it impossible for me to recover by denying me a workable payment program is a penalty grossly disproportionate to my misdeed,â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an obvious violation of the Eighth Amendment.â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi cites a second argument against the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lending practices, the Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organizations, or RICO, Act. The RICO Act was initially enacted to stop Mafia racketeering, but has spread widely through the courts by applying to other forms of corrupt moneylending practices. The RICO Act states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;a debt incurred in connection with lending money with a usurious rate at least twice the rate of the interest owed is against the law.â&#x20AC;? Citibank is headquartered in South Dakota where 15 percent interest is the highest allowed by law. In charging Carnacchi 31.24 percent interest, Citibank is dunning him over twice the allotted interest rate and, he reasons, is therefore as unlawful as a mobster.

Carnacchi has yet to reach an agreement with Citibank, which has since sold the debt at pennies on the dollar to LVNV Funding LLC, a debt buyer. LVNV is now seeking almost $20,000 from Carnacchi plus penalties and fees. The collection agency has threatened to post a sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keeper, a government employed enforcement officer, at his shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door and, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for months, if necessary,â&#x20AC;? seize all the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; income.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The 575 percent increase in my payments and the fact that the bank made it impossible for me to recover is an obvious violation of the Eighth Amendment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; While fully acknowledging that he borrowed money from the bank and that he is not trying to avoid payment, Carnacchi maintains his stance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I am fighting is the ability of the bank to add all these excessive fines to the point that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible for me to recover my good standing with them and for me to pay them back,â&#x20AC;? he says. Carnacchi counted almost 2,000 collection law-firm cases filed in 77 days on the Sonoma County court website alone, and notes that most go to default. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening is appalling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong morally, socially and financially,â&#x20AC;? attorney Cone declares. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basic grievance is a flesh-and-blood example shared by thousands of people. This represents an event worth talking about.â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi wants to publicize his case in hopes that others in the same financial position recognize that by banding together and filing a class-action lawsuit, changes can be made to banksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; control of moneylending practices and, ultimately, peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives. A new credit card act goes into effect in January 2010, but it is of little help to Carnacchi, since it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a cap on interest rates. There is a series of hurdles to overcome, even for lawyers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am struck by the depth of Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research and impressed that he referred back to the Bill of Rights,â&#x20AC;? Cone says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a passion, and it will rub off. You can see the fire in his eyes.â&#x20AC;? Carnacchi has said that some people think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy for attempting to take on the government and the banking business, likening it to David taking on two Goliaths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;crazy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Cone says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but even if it applies, what difference does it make? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the first crazy man to try something of merit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a toughie and, crazy or not, I really feel for him. All the people who are less crazy and are having the same experience donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel empowered to do anything about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right guy at the right place at the right time.â&#x20AC;?

Have yourself a merry John Moss Christmas By John Moss

n these financially strained times, it is important to make a holiday plan. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like me, you have a number of responsibilities: family, friends, work, gifts, parties. Times are tough and funds are limited, but if you follow each of my simple holiday steps, I guarantee you will be f lush come January. Family Admittedly the toughest nut, but if you start early, a little seed-planting can go a long way. I like to begin the holidays by really offending the relatives at Thanksgiving. Usually, I get drunk and say embarrassing and offensive things like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christ, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten fatâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember when _____ used to be at the table? Too bad your anger problem drove him away.â&#x20AC;? These insults serve two purposes. One, to offend the relatives who might be thinking about inviting you to Christmas, and two, to make your wife embarrassed to be with you (which comes in handy later). Remember, Thanksgiving is the time to relive all that childhood ugliness with the original cast. As far as your own kids go, being the offensive relative and picking fights with their mom casts them in the role of pleaser, something they will never outgrow. And when it comes to Christmas gifts, their expectations will be small. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gee Dad, thanks for the pencil.â&#x20AC;? Also, ramping up the drinking problem will help them understand that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to go anywhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Dad, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go see Wicked in San Francisco! Renting a movie for home would be great.â&#x20AC;? The wife is a little tougher to manipulate, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like me, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already established a pattern of false promises and disappointments. Gift certificates for building projects work great. Retile the bathroom, install new cabinets, build a writing studioâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; these are all perfect â&#x20AC;&#x153;giftsâ&#x20AC;? because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually have to do anything. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also smart to give gifts that are really for yourself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask for a new snowboard, but I got it in a larger size so I can use it when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not.â&#x20AC;? And always remember to include a really hot negligee under the tree. It tends to work sort of the same way. Friends Gifts for friends can really break the bank, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to. This year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m giving the Recession Basket to all my friends: used wicker containers from the thrift store filled with a bottle of Two Buck Chuck, a gift certificate for some false promise (see above), a box of saltines, a can of squeeze cheese and a Snickers bar. Five bucks can go a long way if

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re careful. Again, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like me, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been offending your friends for years, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be shocked to get anything at all. Work If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky enough to have a job, congrats. The perfect gift for that office party gift exchange? One word: re-gift. Most of us have a stash of weird shit weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve saved because the items are too crappy to be returned for anything decent but tough to throw away because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re new. The office Christmas party is also a great place to really let your freak flag fly. Go a little insane the Friday before the holidays, and by the time you get back to work, most people will have forgotten your shenanigans. I always like flashing my train tattoo, which rides a rail across my left butt cheek (long story). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen a party get weirder or end faster than when someone drops trou and shows his hairy ass to strangers. Gifts Still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find that special something for Uncle Gene? Nothing says holiday joy like handmade crafts. Since I always seem to have a number of empty wine bottles around the house, craftwork is easy. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beach in a Bottleâ&#x20AC;? (fill with sand, draw ocean scene on label) or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spa in a Bottleâ&#x20AC;? (fill with liquid detergent, draw bathtub and flowers on label). My favorite, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jenkumâ&#x201E;˘ in a Bottle,â&#x20AC;? is a gift that will never be forgotten. Guaranteed. Parties First, never host a party. Why shell out for anyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booze? Second, when attending other peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parties, always front-load at home and arrive by yourself. If it looks like the wife is actually planning to go, I prefer the surefire method: â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say women gain an average of seven to 10 pounds during the holidays.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the bait, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be flying solo. When you arrive, the hostess will see youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drunk and alone and not expect much from you. Plus, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll provide some necessary scandal and drama, which all parties need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But who will drive John home? Do you think he and Kathy are divorcing? Is there anything we can do?â&#x20AC;? This time of year is tough, but with the right plan and a completely irresponsible attitude, you too can survive unscathed. Good luck and happy holidays.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen a party get weirder or end faster than when someone drops trou.

A short guide for more meaning, less stuff By Juliane Poirier

1

ehold, I bring glad tidings (and fewer Glad garbage bags) for the holidays, especially for those of us who have mixed feelings about the whole crazy business. For instance, we all know that every year many of us get stressed out between Thanksgiving and Christmas and buy things for good or weird reasons, including guilt, collectively sending off about 20 billion cards, letters and packages and handing over about $30 billion to U.S. department stores alone. Not many mention the empty or sad feeling that comes when the stuffbuying and getting doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn out to be all that much fun. One of the upsides to the downturn this year is how the pressure to consume has lessened. The good news is that the unwritten holiday regulations are changing, and being part of the change is ecologically responsible and socially sophisticated. It takes some daring to break into a new tradition of giving. Here are some ideas members of the creative minority suggest. Give Justice Make sure all those holiday chocolates and coffee are fair-trade. Shop at local crafts sales that benefit nonprofits in your community. Buy art from artists who live in your own town, especially those adults labeled with disabilities, whose artistic depth and expression is often remarkable. Invest in a farm animal for someone you may never meet and give it in the name of a loved one (www.heifer. org). Donate in loved oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name toward housing a family in the Bay Area (www.

habitatgsf.org) or New Orleans (www.habitat-nola.org). Give to the Earth Buy imaginative gifts and cool, old decorations at thrift stores. Get lots of artistically unmatching plates, cups and silverware at thrift stores and garage sales so every one of your green parties is a celebration of things not going to the landfill. Decorate with LED lights to save energy. Skip the Mylar and make paper chains with construction paper and f lour-andwater glue. Wrap gifts in newspaper and fabric scraps. Recycle old wrapping paper. Refuse to purchase any item that comes with lots of packaging or with toxic elements. Protect small children by avoiding the purchase of plastic toys. Give of Yourself Make gifts rather than buy them. Stack someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firewood. Fold origami cranes to give good luck. Knit a scarf. Say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love you.â&#x20AC;? Pot some herbs. Deliver a singing telegram. Twist-roll some fire starters out of newspaper. Write a love letter by hand. Bake cookies. Pen a poem. Offer to bathe, comb and dry the pet of a person who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to it. Sew a quilt. Paint a picture. Assemble a memory book. Wash a car for someone whose back is out. Make jams. Issue favor-granting coupons for kindnesses including cooking, cleaning, petsitting, errands, and play-time. Read aloud to someone. Take homemade bread to a neighbor you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet met. Give to Yourself Last but not least, unAmerican as it sounds, aim to be content with what you already have. Happy holidays.

One of the upsides to the downturn this year is how the pressure to consume has lessened. It takes some daring to break into a new tradition of giving.

2WP\_Tab^]cWT7P[UB_[daVT In which â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bohemianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; staff did loyally gather to waste most of one afternoon simply drinking Champagneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for you, dear readers, for you By James Knight

C

he holidays are traditionally a time to open our homes and our hearts, but mostly, our wallets. In short, they are a time to throw money like confetti at $100 bottles of Champagne. When we party like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2009, however, we need not be reminded of expensive bubbles and their attendant consequences. So while we trade down, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to stoop grimly to the bottom shelf, to apologize to the hostess for lugging a paper bagcovered Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to the soirĂŠe. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;go wild. Abstemiously wild. Recently we sampled 15 locally produced sparkling wines under $25. A bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dozen Bohemian staffers and associates, having been dragged from their desks with no trifling effort, gathered to drink Champagne on a slow Thursday afternoon, and did their level best. Wines were tasted blind and scored on a scale of 1 to 5. Rankings are accurate to one decimal; stars have been rounded to the nearest half-point.

1. Korbel Brut ($11.99) ++++ To much general surprise, our top-scoring wine is among the most ubiquitous, a nationwide standby a staggering 750,000 cases strong. While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing particularly outstanding about this California Champagne, nor were there any complaints. Korbel has been in the bubbly biz since 1890, and presumably has gleaned a thing or two about consumer tastes during the century. Mediumgold, with a modest aroma of straw and taste of dehydrated apple, this dry sparkler leaves an agreeable sweetness lingering only after the brisk finish. 2. Mumm CuvĂŠe M ($20) ++++ With a light effervescence that rises fast to the roof of the mouth, a balanced finish and a hint of vintage aromas (one taster noted simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;cupcakeâ&#x20AC;?), this cuvĂŠe was well-received. 3. J CuvĂŠe 20 Brut NV ($20) ++++ With aromas of lemon zest and crackers, and a fine

mousse, the J scored well with the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; garnering only one inexplicable â&#x20AC;&#x153;yuck.â&#x20AC;? 4. Korbel Brut RosĂŠ ($11.99) ++++ Notes of cream and strawberry make this slightly sweet rosĂŠ appealing. 5. Korbel Brut Organic ($15.99) ++++ Noted for its lively bubbles, mineral aromas and clean finish, this is among Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only certified organic sparkling wines; friendly to the palate and benign to the earth, although one tasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notes growl gluttonously, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could guzzle this.â&#x20AC;? 6. Korbel Chardonnay California Champagne ($11.99) ++++ Pine, moss and overall woodsy aromas were claimed for this one, with gin appletini flavors. 7. Domaine Chandon Extra Dry Riche ($22) +++ A sweet, floral aroma was universally ascribed to this alluring sparkling, undoubtedly due to the addition of the muscat grape. &+ THE BOHEMIAN

8. Mumm Brut Prestige ($20) +++ Its abrupt finish drew controversy: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No romance,â&#x20AC;? said one taster, while another complained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The door closes on its way out.â&#x20AC;? At least this otherwise well-liked, finebubbled brut doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit you on the ass, too. 9. Schramsberg Mirabelle ($23) +++ One taster thought of Sauternes; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also reminiscent of Schramsbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world-famous Blanc de Blancs, only more heavy-handed on the fermented apple, golden raisin character. Fine bubbles, and hints of lees, but Mirabelle lost points with the antisweetness contingent.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Reminds me of stealing AndrĂŠ from my parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cupboard!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 10. Toad Hollow Amplexus ($15.99) +++ Tasted last, Amplexus was generally wellregarded as a decent, smooth sparkling, and inspired this cryptic note: â&#x20AC;&#x153;One-night stand, no going back.â&#x20AC;? 11. Toad Hollow RisquĂŠ ($13.99) +++ Owes its ranking to a schism, its sweet, applecider taste much-loved by some; others were indifferent. Turning the Martinelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto its head, RisquĂŠ offers the taste of sparkling apple ciderâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when a little alcohol is desired. Notable for its whimsically sexy label (if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re into frogs) and low, 6 percent alcohol that ensures you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kiss any real frogs. 12. Korbel Natural ($15.99) +++ Aromas of soot and charcoal, a steely-apple taste undermined this otherwise sound sparkler. Garnered just one â&#x20AC;&#x153;yummy.â&#x20AC;? 13. Domaine Chandon RosĂŠ ($22) ++ Initially pleasant, with yeasty, strawberry aromas, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undermined by a bitter finish. 14. Domaine Chandon Brut Classic ($22) ++ Austere, with a whiff of sulfur offset by hints of citrus and apple; not wellreceived overall. 15. Domaine Chandon Blanc de Noirs ($22) ++ With the caveat that it was the first taste of the session, it was found to be somewhat flat, with cooked fruit, and inspired one participant to reminisce, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reminds me of stealing AndrĂŠ from my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cupboard!â&#x20AC;? A vintage memory, to be sure, but fresh and effortlessly recalledâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an object lesson in bubblyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power to make memories.

>33Bž=žB>3B very restaurant planning to stay open on Christmas day or Christmas Eve plans a special menu for such special times. Rocker Oysterfellers out in Valley Ford, however, is fairly secure in its singular status as a restaurant offering a New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style â&#x20AC;&#x153;Revillonâ&#x20AC;? repast for the holiday. Traditional to the Big Easy, revillonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which means â&#x20AC;&#x153;waking,â&#x20AC;? denoting that revelers stay up late to fully feastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is connected to the Catholic tradition of midnight mass and features luxury foods too expensive or rich to eat ordinarily. The Revillon Dinner at Oysterfellers is no exception, a three-course meal with two seatings at 5:30pm or 7:30pm that features creamed winter kale with baked eggs and trufďŹ&#x201A;e oil, a prime rib of pork and Scharffen Berger chocolate baked Alaska among its prix-ďŹ xe offerings. Dinner is $60 per person and should be reserved. Joyeux noĂŤl! 14415 Hwy. 1, Valley Ford. 707.876.1983.

As the Napa revitalization continues with the expansion of the riverfront area and new life in the West End District, new businesses also bloom. Case in point is the Norman Rose Tavern, set to open Dec. 28 at 1401 First St. The newest venture of Michael and Christina Gyetvan, who own the Azzurro Pizzeria and Enoteca, the Norman Rose will be a comfortable fall-in-the-door spot featuring sustainable local comfort food at sustainable prices for local eaters. Featuring a patio, two bars and artisanal rootbeer on tap, the tavern starts with dinner service only, planning to expand to lunch in mid-January. From the ever-evolving We Love Clark Wolf Files, we rush to note that our favorite international restaurant consultant and Bohemian contributor has gosh darn branded himself, entering into a collaboration with the good ladies of Cowgirl Creamery to introduce â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clark Wolfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American Cheese Collections.â&#x20AC;? The author of American Cheeses, The Best Regional, Artisan and Farmhouse Cheeses, published last year, Clark has a full slate of lactic loves, none of them involving vegetable oil or the sufďŹ x â&#x20AC;&#x153;-food.â&#x20AC;? Stop by the creamery in Pt. Reyes Station (inside Tomales Bay foods) or go online at www.cowgirlcreamery.com to ďŹ nd a â&#x20AC;&#x153;collectionâ&#x20AC;? chosen by the ďŹ ne Mr. Wolf.

F>A;3F8=4 F41 oes it take Twitter and Facebook to effectively sell wine today?

D

Yes, said magnates of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine industry, when they met in Sausalito on Nov. 17 for the New Generation Vintners and Growers convention. The meeting addressed several challenges and topics relevant to winemakers and marketers, including Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evolving wine styles, eco-friendly growing and how the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older vintners can smoothly pass the torch without the next generation bungling things up. At a discussion panel titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hip and Trendy Marketing,â&#x20AC;? reps from four wineries discussed tactics for seducing the newest demographic of drinkers: those barely legal millennials who are shamelessly hooked on the web. The favored tool, it seemed, for reaching this money-spilling crowd is social networking. Cheryl Murphy Durzy, vice-president of Clos La Chance Winery, says her staff spends about three hours each week making announcements via Facebook. Durzy says the internet is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;core componentâ&#x20AC;? of marketing today, and those wineries that neglect to maintain an account are behind the times. Wine blogger Thea Dwelle, who, as the Wine Brat, has produced an astounding 80,000 tweets about adult beverages, was in attendance, sending out some 15 tweets while the hip and trendy discussion proceeded. Veteran journalist Steve Heimoff of Wine Enthusiast, meanwhile, ďŹ&#x201A;aunted a dashing old-school style with his trademark rustic pen and a crinkly pad of paper. He broke from his notes just once to ask the panel if, through this incorrigible focus on social media marketing, we might expect to see wineries succeed based on a slick web presence rather than on their winesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quality. The panel answered in consensus that there is plenty of room for both making good wine and frolicking on the web after hours. Durzy elaborated for me later, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost every winery has a website and still makes good wine or bad wine, so whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the difference if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on Facebook?â&#x20AC;? But by making yourselves so socially available via Facebook, I asked Durzy, might winemakers be compromising their mystique? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So few of us are celebrities, anyway,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and what people want are winemakers who are relatable. People want that personal connection.â&#x20AC;? Irony of the Information Age, that connection comes through computer screens. But at least one thing will never ďŹ&#x201A;ow through cyberspace: wine itself. In the end, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always have to actually drink it.

BdRRTTSX]VPcBP]cP Can a skinny, middle-aged Jewish man achieve fulfillment as a Rent-A-Claus? By Robert Sward

0

buxom, aspiring female Santa Claus in a quilted down jacket swaggers out of room C-1 in the Civic Center where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m next in line for my â&#x20AC;&#x153;RentA-Santaâ&#x20AC;? interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ho ho ho,â&#x20AC;? she says over her shoulder, giving me an unnerving sidelong glance, a sort of knowing sneer tinged with holiday spirit. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warring with me for the job of Santa Claus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ho ho ho yourself,â&#x20AC;? I answer, wondering what I, at age six, would have made of a bigbreasted female Santa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you Santa Claus?â&#x20AC;? I might have asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Ms. Santa Claus. Mr. Santa Claus is home making dinner.â&#x20AC;? My own children will be away this Christmas visiting relatives. I want to be Santa because I know how much Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be missing them. I want

to be Santa so I can give love and gifts to other children. If I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t personally give these things to my own children, I can at least try to give them to other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children. The truth is, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the loneliest man in town and I want to be Santa Claus so I can distract myself, so I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel so much pain. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t practiced my â&#x20AC;&#x153;ho-ho-hos,â&#x20AC;? but plan to wing it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ho ho hoâ&#x20AC;? from the diaphragm, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ho ho hoâ&#x20AC;? from the heart. I wanna be Santa. My qualifications? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Jewish. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a teacher, Fulbright scholar, Guggenheim fellow and the author of 14 books. I have a beard. But mostly, for 53 years I have wanted to participate not as an envious Christmas outsider, but as a wholehearted insider. What better way than to become the plump, white-bearded, old man himself ? My shortcomings? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tall and skinny. I am a neurotic ectomorph. I have a lean, hungry look about me, sad hazel eyes and a slightly hooked nose.

But I do have a white beard of my own, though tinged with wiry black hairs. I like children. That is, most children. Not all. The little boy down the street who applied red enamel paint to my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boston terrier puppy will be lucky to get a lump of coal this Christmas.

C

he door to room C-1 at the Civic Center opens and the Santa Claus personnel officer invites me inside. We shake hands. She introduces me to her assistant. The two interviewers sit at one end of a mahogany conference table and I sit at the other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What wonderful weather weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having,â&#x20AC;? volunteers the female interviewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not at all like Christmas. This is going to be my first Christmas in five years without snow,â&#x20AC;? I stammer, violating my promise to myself not to ramble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Robert, to start off would you give us a sample of your â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ho ho hoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;?â&#x20AC;? (% THE BOHEMIAN

I take a deep breath and summon up all the jolliness I can muster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ho ho ho!â&#x20AC;? I roar. They nod approvingly and make notes on their lined yellow pads. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling more at ease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are the names of Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reindeer?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Comet. Dancer. Prancer. Blitzen. Rudolph . . . Hmmm.â&#x20AC;? An un-Santa-like expletive follows. I get only four out of eight correct. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m failing. What the hell am I doing here? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know the names of eight stinking reindeer. Again, they make notes on their lined yellow pads. This reminds me of visits to my therapist. I begin to sweat. I want the job and they know I want the job and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to get it and they know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to give it to me. The humiliation of it all. I passed my orals for an MA degree, I taught at Cornell University, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get hired as Santa Claus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Vixen, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen,â&#x20AC;? the woman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudolph doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really count. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a latecomer.â&#x20AC;? Next question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What would you say if you had a kid sitting in your lap and he pulled off your beard?â&#x20AC;? asks the assistant Santa Claus personnel officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d try to control myself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say something like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;See, I have a real beard, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s white and black because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m young. And I wear an all white beard over my own beard so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look older than I really am. People expect Santa Claus to have an allwhite beard. But now you know the truth. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m younger than people think.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? What a ridiculous answer. To my surprise, the two nod approvingly. Again, they make notes on their pads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do you want to be Santa Claus?â&#x20AC;? the assistant asks. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re wondering if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a child molester or a drug addict. They obviously donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a Santa Claus whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to arrive at some holiday office party too ripped to climb out of the sleigh. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just a straight, conventional citizen. A writer. A professor. Solid and stuffy. I tell them about my children and how much I miss them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What will you say if children ask how come they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get what they wanted last Christmas?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say that Santa Claus loves them and that he gives children what he thinks they need most. That he has many children to give things toâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;children in all parts of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and that some years he runs out of presents before heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finished. But that he tries to make up for it the next year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, but remember Santa Claus never makes promises,â&#x20AC;? says the male Santa Claus recruiter, hiding behind his hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also you may be asked to appear in some unusual ways.â&#x20AC;? Like a Rent-A-Santa-Stripper who must drag along a bag of toys while somehow jumping naked out of a cake?

To my relief, he explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, our Santa Claus was met at the end of a deserted mountain road with a horse-drawn wagon filled with hay. You want to be prepared for anything.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Santa Claus does not use drugs and he does not accept drinks,â&#x20AC;? the female personnel officer warns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No liquor. No drugs.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if Santa is invited to stay for dinner?â&#x20AC;? I ask, hoping at some point along the way the old guy will be asked to sit down with some generous family to feast in style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santa Claus does not accept dinner invitations.â&#x20AC;?

Santa does not smoke cigarettes, because his uniform is flammable . . . Right. I should have known. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept anything. But how in Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is Santa going to fatten himself up if you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feed him? Feeling depressed, I cross my thin arms and look down at my skinny legs. The interview ends with them asking me to make up a story. My imagination fails me. I can think of nothing to say. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written a novel, poems, short stories, magazine articles, and I sit at the mahogany conference table with nothing to say. I bomb. I need a drink. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, well, thank you, Robert. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call you Thursday or Friday of next week.â&#x20AC;? Both Thursday and Friday pass with no call from Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personnel officers. So this would-be St. Nick sweats it out over the weekend. On Monday, he can stand it no longer. Can he subject himself to further mortification? He must know whether or not heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made it. He does what they asked him not to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Robert Sward?â&#x20AC;? says the voice at the other end of the line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Santa Claus!â&#x20AC;?

ired as a Rent-A-Santa Claus, I immediately begin wondering if there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been some mistake. Me? Santa Claus? Surely there must be a hundred aspiring Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there better qualified than I. Oversized professional actors with droll little mouths and noses like cherries. Accomplished, 300-pound right jolly old elves. Reindeer ranchers whose round bellies shook when they laughed like bowlfuls of jelly. The truth is, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m scared. Having gotten the job, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m up to it. Think of the responsibility. Sinterklaas, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Santa Claus is a supernatural being who brings happiness and knows the names, addresses and dreams of every child on earth. Who knows the good ones from the bad and who loves


both equally. Who has unconditional love for everyone, even noisy, runny-nosed, sneezy children who whine and cry and pull his beard. Yes, this Santa Claus worries about being too thin and believes there is nothing more obscene than the sight of some undernourished Father Christmas moving about with obvious pillows inside his oversized red polyester suit. Better no Santa at all than an unconvincing, self-conscious, tacky Santa with skinny legs. My girlfriend—delighted, by the way, to be dating Santa Claus—tells me that, if everything goes well, I will not merely put on the cheap suit and fake white beard and “play” Santa, but I will become Santa, just as good method actors and actresses become the parts they play. She promises to help me with the logistics of costume and makeup. Maybe there’s something kind of sexy about Santa after all. Still, I ask myself, what would my parents think? A nice Jewish boy, bar mitzvahed, educated, the works—what’s he doing, our son, the crazy teacher, age 53, in a red suit trimmed with rabbit fur promising Barbie and Ken and GI Joe to gentiles? Flying through the air like a peddler in a magic sleigh, a bundle of toys he had flung on his back, and he’s giving them away, Gertrude. He’s giving them away! And worse, what if, even after boning up on their names, I confuse or forget some of my reindeer? Cutie, Blitzen, Bagel and Vixen. Donder, Dasher, Schwartzkopf and Prancer. It’s like some New York law firm. I buy a copy of Clement C. Moore’s The Night Before Christmas, a facsimile of the original 1848 edition, and write down reindeer names in my Day Timer appointment book for reference and study. I go to the downtown library and read everything I can on Christmas. I begin to notice that when I talk to myself, I address myself as Santa. I try not to let it bother me.

anta’s friend tells him he’ll make a great Santa. They say that Santa’s “Ho ho ho” is just bravado. That that’s not the real Santa Claus. That Santa is a private, loving, soft-spoken actually fairly sexy guy, who doesn’t go to parties very much—only at New Year’s—and that, when he does, doesn’t stay very long because he’s always working on his next novel. With that encouragement, Santa goes to the Rent-A office to pick up his new suit and beard and his instructions. He also has to sign a contract. Of course there is a set of rules, some already made clear, to learn: 1. No alcohol, drugs, no smoking. Santa Claus does not smoke cigarettes, because his uniform is flammable and he wants to set a good example for children and not go up in flames or die an agonizing death from cancer. 2. Santa Claus does not accept cookies or cake to put into his big red velour bag “for the reindeer.” 3. Santa is not a surrealist. He tells stories about sharing. He tells stories that have an appropriate moral message. Santa, in short,

follows tradition. More Charles Dickens than Richard Brautigan. 4. Santa arrives at his gigs on time and already in uniform. He does not need to first go to the bathroom to “change” where he may be seen by children.

Cutie, Blitzen, Bagel and Vixen. Donder, Dasher, Schwartzkopf and Prancer. It’s like some New York law firm.

anta spends a sleepless night and, at dawn, takes a shower and trims his beard. Two hours before he is due at the community center, Santa does some yoga exercises: the sun salutation, the pose of the holly wreath. Then he meditates. Next, Santa lays out his clothes and begins to dress. He imagines himself a toreador preparing for what Hemingway calls “the moment of truth.” Santa puts on his blue fleece-lined sweat pants and shirt, to which his girlfriend pins four pillows—front, back, both sides. Then he pulls on his red velour pants and socks. He borrows a pair of Girlfriend Claus’ red socks (one size fits all) to pull on over his own. He pulls on his high rubber boots with the white fur. She sews jingle bells onto his boots. When he is at last ready, Girlfriend Claus begins to weep. She has helped create Santa, a fantasy from her childhood, and has done so in the privacy of her own home. Here he is, as real as any Santa she has known. Only this is her own Santa, seated on her sofa. He is as moved as Girlfriend Claus. He feels himself to be transformed. “I am the happiest man in the world,” Santa says, seated in GFC’s car on his way to the local community center. Suddenly he hears children screaming and yelling, “Santa! Look, there’s Santa Claus.” A mother stops in the middle of the street, risking her own life and the life of her child to gasp, “It’s Santa! Mickey, there’s Santa!” Traffic-stopping Santa waves and waves and shouts over and over, “Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.” Impulsively, he improvises. “Happy Hanukkah, too!”

:

ate Eilertsen meets her visitor at the entrance and holds out a welcoming hand before turning on her heel and leading a tour of the Sonoma Valley Museum of Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new exhibit, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life of Making.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a show,â&#x20AC;? she explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on my whole life.â&#x20AC;? Curating an exhibitâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this is Eilertsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural in her new role as SVMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive directorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;does not literally take a lifetime, and the comment seems offhand, the exact sort of casual thing one might say to add pizzazz. But after Eilertsen has led the visitor through the airy museum, she sits down. Her father, she says, is a retired 84-year-old pastor living in Minnesota. Her voice takes a sad tone when she speaks of him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just given up,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting to die. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the opposite of these people.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;These peopleâ&#x20AC;? are the exhibitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stars, 91-yearold metal worker June Schwarcz, 79-year-old ceramicist Jim Melchert and 83-year-old fiber artist Kay Sekimachi, whose vibrant work well into the September of their years illuminates the idea of art as a catalyst for longevity. The exhibit examines whether, when human beings discover what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good at, passionate about and able to better master on a daily basis, they have a

preternatural ability to live longer, healthier lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life of Makingâ&#x20AC;? is laid out around this inspiration, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that Eilertsen clearly wishes her own father could possess. While the show wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be seen by Eilertsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, it flows from her sympathetic championing of perseverance. Schwarcz, the oldest of the three artists in the show, walks slowly every morning down to her studio to work with enamels from the Sausalito home sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lived in since 1959; in the exhibitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s video installation, she quips, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I resent things that keep me from working.â&#x20AC;? Some of Schwarczâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early, architectureinspired enamels are on display, with rigid lines on f lat panels, but she eventually burst open the enamel-making process. Her newer pieces are beautiful bulbous vessels, loosely resembling cubic graduation caps, hatchet blades or sagging jeans. Small bubbles like tree sap frozen in time hang at the edges in very dynamic colors that shine ever more brilliant on the piecesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interiors. The Oakland-based Melchert is the bestknown of the three artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he served as visual arts programming director at the NEA, among other thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and his conceptual pieces are concerned with the natural imperfections in ceramics. Broken tiles are toyed with, their cracks becoming tree branches and their leftover ends, in the case of the square, bold, Density Squared,

can be jumbled together in a busy, metropolitan relief map. Snapped electrical coils from Melchertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kiln have burned the ceramic, creating work normally headed to the dumpster transformed and celebrated instead as centerpieces. Sekimachiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woven, hanging pieces may be the only overt reference to the winding down of life in the show. Casting long, lovely shadows on the museum floor, the ghostly, abstract hourglass figures wear flowing manes of telling white hair. Her earlier work, also, is on display, underscoring how age has opened Sekimachi up to fresh possibilities. An adjoining room allows visitors the chance to interact with much of the same material used in the show, and Eilertsen speculates the exhibit will reach both the young and the old. Still, with work so vibrant coming from Schwarcz, Melchert and Sekimachi, the issue of age fades to the background in favor of passion and inspiration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just curious about what keeps people healthy, and strong,â&#x20AC;? Eilertsen says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This show could have been done with young people, too, and had the same idea. But having them as old as they are, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to understand that value.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Life of Makingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs through March 14, 2010, at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, 551 Broadway, Sonoma. Museum hours are Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm. $5; Sundays, free. 707.939.7862.

Woody Harrelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Messengerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brings back the best of Wayne

By Richard von Busack

F

oody Harrelson may be the John Wayne our war in Iraq deserves. If Harrelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest, The Messenger, seems to run off the rails, it may be the kind of movie that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intended to be on the rails in the first place. Made in the shadow of Hal Ashbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1973 film The Last Detail, The Messenger has a profane streak. Like that movie, it features a pair of soldiers on a sort of liberty leaveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unsupervised and frequently on the road. Harrelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capt. Stone is a Casualty Notification Officer, one of the pair of soldiers who turn up on doorsteps to regret to inform. He seems self-assured (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an easy-going Southern girl-chaser) and he feels thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a system behind what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do not touch the NOK [next of kin].â&#x20AC;? Stone has enough of a sense of humor to put â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Funeral Marchâ&#x20AC;? on his ringtone. Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new partner, Sgt. Montgomery (Ben Foster), is a simmering, tattooed fan of punk rock; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scarred from the war and is boiling with his own contempt for the civilians around him.

The horror of this assignment seems realistic. The Messenger has inside details about what needs to be done, such as the importance of getting to the fateful doorstep before the blogs or the newspapers. And the two-man team keep the pity for themselves and not for the survivors. The first people we see informedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the pregnant fiancĂŠe and the mother of the killed-in-Iraq soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;blow up, howling in horror. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that being such a messenger is a job for which there is no real preparation. But we start to see celebrity actors playing the bereaved: Steve Buscemi as a spitting, furious father; Samantha Morton, plumped and cushiony, with hair swept back to look like late-period Ann-Margret. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous deathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-head irony starts to grow a little domestic. About the third time I heard Ben Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting for this film praised, I went back for a second look at The Messenger and felt the same way I had the first time. Certainly this is Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best work; he does exemplary listening and reacting. Other critics have singled Foster out, but I feel that the reason why this is one of the few Iraq war movies to stick around is because of Harrelson. Harrelson is the repository of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humor. Note the way he curls his lip to suppress a smile when recalling the time he told a survivor that her grandson was â&#x20AC;&#x153;no longer with us,â&#x20AC;? and the old lady thought it meant heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d defected to the terrorists. Coming out of this and talking about Foster is like coming out of The Last Detail and talking about Randy Quaid instead of Jack Nicholson. Audiences today are distrustful of juicy, savory work; they prefer heavy-lifters (literally the case, as when we watch Montgomery bench-press weights), and they never seem to notice how much acting is on the nose. Despite recent cartoony work in schlock films, Harrelson seems on the verge of something great. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already an assured movie star, and The Messenger is proof that he is much more than that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (John) Wayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world he inhabits: heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a seasoned soldier too cracked by his own experience to fit into the life of a civilian. Writer-turned-director Oren Moverman did the research, and the slang sounds right; the soldiers use the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jodyâ&#x20AC;? to describe the guy who stayed behind and helped himself to your girlfriend. But he also uses ideas and symbols that could have been done without. The first shot of Sgt. Montgomery, putting drops in his wounded eye, all but screams, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This man cannot weep,â&#x20AC;? just like his line â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to be offering any hugsâ&#x20AC;? indicates that of course he will be. Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Montgomery sits solid as Harrelson judges him with the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst line: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another lost child looking for a family.â&#x20AC;? The last third seems particularly shook upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a little drinking and fighting, a little bonding, this way to the hopeful ending. The locations, in New Jerseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aluminum-siding belt, give the story realism, and Mortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sober acting seems delicate and appropriately shell-shocked. But inside The Messenger is a much harsher and bigger film, and Harrelson might have shown the way to it. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Messengerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; starts on Friday, Dec. 18, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

Hicksville

The Rock

Cool Out

Gay for a Day

Do you travel religiously to Christmas Jug Band performances, only to be let down by the absence of your main man? Do you wear out your copy of Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Money?, pining for the actual thing, live and in person? Do you desperately watch on constant repeat the McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercial from the 1970s that features said main man and actual thing, Dan Hicks? (YouTube â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very old Big Mac 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercialâ&#x20AC;?; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at :09!) Well, your chance for a guaranteed appearance by Mr. CountrySwing Christmas is here, as Hicks himself brings his Christmas show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holidaze in Hicksville,â&#x20AC;? live and onstage. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sleighed by Hicksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; original tunes like â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Main Man Santa,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Yule Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Christmas Card.â&#x20AC;? Pile on a preshow dinner of Big Macs, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be looking like Santa soon enough yourself ! Hicks hos and hos and hos on Friday, Dec. 18, at the Raven Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. 707.433.6335.

In one short verse of the All City party track â&#x20AC;&#x153;San Francisco Anthem,â&#x20AC;? the 32-year-old Baghdad-by-the-Bay rapper San Quinn manages to shout out Hunters Point, Hayes Valley, Candlestick Park, Twin Peaks, Barry Bonds, the Fillmore District, Jerry Rice and the Golden Gate Bridge. Add a sample from Scott McKenzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Going to San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;? in the background, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a Bay jam. All things Ess Eff come easy to Quinn, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also recorded songs such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bay Luv,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Northern California,â&#x20AC;? and named an entire album, The Rock, after Alcatraz. Unmistakable on the mic with a low, gruff timbre, Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s destined to be one of the survivors of Bay Area rap; he was in the game before it was big, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be here if it ever dies down. He performs with DJ Amen on Friday, Dec. 18, at 19 Broadway. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 9pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 415.459.1091.

With all the focus on the 40th anniversary of Woodstock this summer, most stayed away from the imminent shadow of Altamont, an event with possibly more cultural significance but absolutely zero celebration. The story by now is familiar: more than 300,000 rock fans trekked to see the free concert by the Rolling Stones, only to witness the deteriorating situation with a security force supplied by the beer-fueled Hellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angels, who stabbed a man, Meredith Hunter, high on meth and brandishing a revolver, in front of the stage during the Stonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; set. As Hunter died, so did the hippie dream; the paradigm shift is examined in Ethan Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timely new book â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Let It Bleed: The Rolling Stones, Altamont, and the End of the Sixties.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Russell reads from the book, and discusses what we in the Bay Area like to forget, on Thursday, Dec. 17, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.

With no official â&#x20AC;&#x153;gayâ&#x20AC;? bar in Napa County, a group of fun-loving philanthropists have come up with a dahling idea: the Napa Guerrilla Gay Bar. Floating from location to location, the group announces a night, sets up a DJ, busts out the food before cutting a mean rug to some saucy tunes. The money goes to good causes, and for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Around,â&#x20AC;? their holiday party this weekend, the causes couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be better. Half the dough goes to Napa Valley Shelter Project, a homeless services organization, and the other half goes to the Napa Valley Food Bank. Reads their website: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gay or straight, male or female, single or coupled, owner of a cat or a dog, a Raider fan or a 49er fan, wearer of boxer or briefs, a coffee or tea or Coke or Pepsi drinker. EVERYONE is welcome.â&#x20AC;? Get down on Sunday, Dec. 20, at the Centre CafĂŠ. 388 Devlin Road, Napa. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. From 3pm to 8pm. 707.603.3260.

THE BOHEMIAN



<>E8=ž0=3B70:8=ž Venues, bookers, rumors, etc.

ith the imminent reopening next year of the recently restored art deco Uptown Theater in Napa comes the news that Sheila Groves, longtime booker at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mystic Theatre, will leave the Mystic to fill the new managerial position at the 1,000-seat Uptown. Groves has been booking the Mystic for over 15 years, helping to build it into one of Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest venues; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certain to do the same over in the valley for the Uptown. In Grovesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; absence, owner Ken Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell and his daughter Shennon Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell will take over bookings and promotion at the Mystic, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt that artist loyalty and the venueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent sound will help keep its live music alive and well. Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 142 Throckmorton Theatre, a victim of hard times threatened earlier this year with possible closure, has received a pledge from an anonymous donor (weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking Robin Williams, but no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saying) to match up to $50,000 in donations for the old vaudeville house-turned-community nonproďŹ t arts theater. Those wishing to donate to keep the doors open should do so before Dec. 31â&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the matching-funds deal expiresâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by calling 415.383.9611 or by visiting www.142throckmortontheatre.com. Rumors continue to swirl about Emmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spaghetti Shack in Sonoma, a city that a certain well-equipped West County venue owner had originally set his eyes on to open a venue. The Old World atmosphere, the large back patio beer garden and the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent aggressive campaign to get a live music permit from the city all add up to the perfect spot for a second location, though no one will comment. A sign on the door notes that, right at the height of the holiday shopping season, Emmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will be closed all next week. Hmmm . . . Finally, in sad news, employees of Cotatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Backdoor Disc learned this week that the long-running record store will close its doors for good after the end of this month. The storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parent company, Value Music Concepts Inc., is also closing several other stores around the country. Inventory will be on sale through the end of the year and up to the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal days in January. Gabe Meline

ob Schneider is just not a one-band man. In addition to performing under his own name, the Austinbased singer, songwriter and band leader also fronts a pair of very different hometown ensembles, the Scabs and the Texas Bluegrass Massacre. And, with infrequent exceptions, each group plays a separate set of Schneiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually what happens with every project is Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a song or a couple songs that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite fit in the other thing that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing,â&#x20AC;? Schneider explains by phone from the Texas capital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what happened with the Scabsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I was playing in the band called the Ugly Americans, and I had written some songs with a friend of mine that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite fit in that band, so I started the Scabs so that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have an outlet to play those songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I started playing solo when I wrote some mellow songs that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit into the Scabs, so I started a solo band project. I did the Texas Bluegrass Massacre because I had some friends who were great bluegrass players and I just wanted to play music with them. So I started doing that.â&#x20AC;?

THE BOHEMIAN



Even in his solo projects, such as the recently released Lovely Creatures CD, Schneiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wide-ranging musicality covers considerable stylistic ground, from the leisurely groove of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Realness of Space,â&#x20AC;? though bittersweet pop melodies like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bringdown,â&#x20AC;? to the endearingly cheesy vocal chorus that decorates the amusingly verbose â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your Head Holds Gold, Your Heart Holds Diamonds.â&#x20AC;? His new record also features the irresistible Latin rhythms of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bombonanzaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tarantula,â&#x20AC;? two longtime staples of his live shows given hot-blooded, extra-brass-and percussion treatments, in part to dress them up for those who already know the songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a record like this comes out, my fans have already heard the music,â&#x20AC;? Schneider explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I record all my shows live and make them available for sale at the end of the night. So a lot of the songs that are on that record, my fans have live versions from when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve toured through that part of the country and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard the songs and are familiar with them already.â&#x20AC;? Bootlegging his own shows also enables Schneider to showcase the output of his prolific pen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I only get to tour the county maybe twice a year, so in that span of time between recordsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two to three yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have written a lot of songs that will never get recorded on a record. So when people come to the shows, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a brandnew record every time.â&#x20AC;? The actual new record, just his third studio set joining Lonelyland (2001) and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Good Now (2005), wound up featuring a connective theme that Schneider insists was entirely inadvertent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we had recorded the songs and put the record together, I looked at it and realized the common thread was that they were all love songs in one regard or another. Some unrequited, some are requited love songs, just different phases in love relationships. But that was just a coincidence.â&#x20AC;? Often Schneiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs are detailed miniatures, capturing a mood or moment and running with it, as in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bicycle vs. Car,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slower Dearâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trash.â&#x20AC;? Other times it seems that the music can scarcely contain an upwelling of words and freely associated thoughts, such as the aforementioned â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your Head Holds Goldâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet),â&#x20AC;? the track from Lovely Creatures currently drawing the most radio play. To at least some degree, that disparate output is a result of Schneiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restless creative urges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always drawn my whole life, and I love making stuff,â&#x20AC;? he adds, animatedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a continuation of that with my songs. I just like putting some words together and putting some music in and recording it. I just do that all the time.â&#x20AC;? Still, Schneider leaves room to introduce those new songs that constantly keep appearing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole drive is just to create somethingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;anything,â&#x20AC;? he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to write a lot of stuff doing that. Then later I try to figure out if this is a song I can play live or is this a song I may have to start another band for.â&#x20AC;?

F>A3?;0H

The wily Mr. Wiley goes to Washington hat has William T. Wiley wrought? Or more appropriately what hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he wrought? In a stellar career that began when he was in high school in the 1950s, and has spanned six decades, there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an art form that Wiley hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plied. A long-time resident of West Marin, and an ex-professor at UC Davis, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painted, sculpted, composed music and performed it, written poetry and recorded it, and made movies, too. Time and again heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brought all the arts together in explosive works that take on the world and often turn it upside down. Wileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art has also always poked fun at narrow-minded American politics and shrill politicians. Unafraid to take on Washington, D.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powers-that-be, Wiley has satirized whatever party happens to be in power. A colossal exhibition of his work opened Oct. 2 in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and runs through Jan. 24, 2010. In the spring the exhibition travels to the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, opening on March 17, 2010, and closing June 20. For art lovers who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t travel to Washington, or refuse to wait for Wileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work to arrive in Berkeley, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the elegant new book, Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s It All Means: William T. Wiley in Retrospective (University of California Press; $39.95). With provocative essays by outstanding scholars, Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s It All Mean includes work from every period of a career that has continually reinvented itself. Indeed, Wiley has had as many different periods as Picasso. If there is one single, living American artist whose name can be spoken without apology in the same breathe as Picassoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, it might be Wileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s It All Means illuminates his artistic genius. The volume also shows that virtuoso critics such as Joann Moser, John Yau and John G. Hanhardt have, like the public at large, often been puzzled by Wileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enigmatic paintings and sculptures that deconstruct, reconstruct and critique themselves. Wiley has always painted against interpretation. He has also always invited viewers to look closely at his work, and to hunt for hidden signs and symbols. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s It All Means shows how playful he can beâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially in pieces like Sold Yours Return and Mr. Unnatural Eyes the Ape Run Ledgeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and how masterful a punster he has been. With a name like Wiley you might expect heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be wily, and indeed heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as wily as he is witty and worldly.

Missed Connections AMAZON KINDLE Hello, I met you Friday June 27 at the Russian River Brewing Company on Fourth St. in Santa Rosa. She may be a computer programmer from St. Helena Hospital and watched on this day 3 movies back to back in the theater on Fourth St. in the town of Santa Rosa The Love Guru by Mike Meyers, Wall-E and another film. And she sipped a little beer and read from her Amazon kindle. I would like to get in touch with this girl and ask her to edit my book. She is a perfect candidate for my book. Hope to hear from you. Phil. 274972

Meet Six • Kitty of the Week HI, I'M SIX – you can guess where the name comes from, with my cute six toes! Some say my ancestors date back to the Hemingway cats all the way from Key West. In addition to possessing whimsically soft tabby markings, I am very loving, tender, and always up for a snuggle. Definitely stop in and meet Six - her tender little heart will tiptoe into yours in no time at all. To learn more about adopting Six or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us or check us out online. 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 Koby • Doggie of the Week

Meet Spencer • Bunny of the Week

HI, I'M KOBY and I'm cute as the dickens with lots and lots and lots of love to give! But don't let my good looks fool you, I'm a real dog's dog – no cats allowed! I'm full of energy: that's my 1 year old Chihuahua/terrier mix coming out. I need someone to be my pack leader! To learn more about adopting Koby or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us or check us out online.

MEET SPENCER One look and you are smitten. True to his silver marten breed Spencer is beautiful to look at and wonderful to live with. He examines his surroundings like a detective: methodical, no running hither and thither, just a quiet, calm exploration of all the perimeters with a constant up on the hind legs looking for the better view. To learn more about adopting Squiggy or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us or check us out online.
