Remembering Rev. James E. Coffee, who left us too soon

By Lenita Marie Johnson They say he had a good song. I heard he had a sound. And then he read my letters and read each one out loud. He was tellinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; my whole life with his words . . . â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Roberta Flack

B

ome of us seem to hang around Sonoma County once we land here. It could be the weather, the wine or the country leading to the Pacific. The black folks Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met and those of other hues certainly seem to. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt in my mind that Rev. James E. Coffee had something to do with why most of us chose to stay, whether we officially became members of his Community Baptist Church or not. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that the sudden death of Rev. Coffee, which seemed to have rocked the community and folks across the globe, is headline news. It became official Sunday. The new interim pastor at CBC is Rev. Lee Turner. Many knew he was being trained and groomed for a time we all hoped would not come so soon. Rev. Coffee took me under his parental arm when I landed in Sonoma County. The unexpected news of his death hit me like a tidal wave. One of our leaders who at times seemed larger than life is gone. His death was almost too personal, leaving the community in despair. At Rev. Coffeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral on April 12, I met Robert Dunlap, a Dallas CPA who lived in Santa Rosa years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I heard the news, I had to be here to say goodbye to my friend,â&#x20AC;? Dunlap said. He shared that, as the grandson of a Baptist preacher, the CBC felt like home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough losing this great man, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do my best to support the new leader, as everyone should.â&#x20AC;? It was no secret at CBC or among the members of the countless associations that Rev. Coffee participated in that he was in ill health. Yet he always seemed to bounce back. He was resilient, which gave us strength to weather the storms of our own lives. Watching Rev. Coffee reminded me of what I learned as a child: When bad things happen, you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep on keepinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on. This time he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bounce back. Pastor Coffee led the CBC when Sal Rosano was a relatively new police chief. Now retired, Rosano said recently, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were having skirmishes with groups of black youth in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s. Race relations between police and youth nationwide were coming to a head. Everyone knew it. I was looking for help and one day Jim Coffee called me. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Looks like you need some help. What can I do?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He invited me to

sit in the pulpit and talk. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel it was my place in the pulpit,â&#x20AC;? Rosano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We managed to keep something of a lid on it. It would not have happened without Jim. He was a uniter and a great guy. I miss him.â&#x20AC;? The stories are too many. The usual suspects were at the ceremonies celebrating Rev. Coffeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life during the memorial weekend â&#x20AC;&#x153;to send him homeâ&#x20AC;? and support his wife, Vivian Coffee, and the CBC. Married since 1954, they were high school sweethearts in the East Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was popular with the girls, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay him much attention. Oh, he was good-looking, smart, an athlete. But I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t into sharing with anyone.â&#x20AC;? Mrs. Coffee told me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to learn to do that much later.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost my best friend,â&#x20AC;? Carole Ellis said while I helped her up to the front of the church to look at him one last time on Monday. Past principal at Cook and Ursuline, former SRJC Trustee and CBC Trustee, she, like so many others, could barely keep her composure. It was a quiet beginning when a small group of black men were invited by Pastor Coffee to breakfast meetings at the CBC. Attorney Anthony Wheeldin, past president of what would become the 100 Black Men of Sonoma County, remembers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a man who tried to bring heaven down to earth. Just treat people better was his motto. There was no hype about Rev. Coffee.â&#x20AC;? It was at one of the 100 Black Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual dinners that Chief Rosano got his first taste of what life for black folks can be like in Santa Rosa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a very formal event,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife and I were the only white folks in what seemed like a sea of wonderful, good-looking black people. We were uncomfortable and sure as heck felt â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;different,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; yet they were so darn welcoming. We had a great time.â&#x20AC;? I am reminded during conversations I have every day, far too many to share right now, of the impact Rev. Coffee had in the lives of so many. I would ride my bike to Howarth Park when I came here to play tennis and stop at the CBC. His door was always open. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d smile and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lenita Marie Johnson, sit down and tell me whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening.â&#x20AC;? I felt like the center of the universe. So many in this community and beyond the man or woman on the street to the so-called power players have so graciously insisted on telling me about the man Rev. Coffee. He was a people person, and I miss him, too. Lenita Marie Johnson is a writer, broadcast journalist with a background that includes law and wine who misses being on the tennis court.

C74<>A0;02C8>= In response to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morality Mathâ&#x20AC;? (March 24): Though the morality of pursuing a longer life is shown in Davis and Blackfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calculations, one must ask why people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t content to better the life they have, no matter how short it is? Malthusian visions of an overpopulated earth without the necessary resources every human needs to survive surpasses the desire to live longer. Foundations raise money for countries without plentiful resources. In contrast, I write this sitting at my kitchen table eating food from the refrigerator. As an American, pursuing a longer life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem so far-fetched; many of our needs as a nation are met. But the same cannot be said for other nations. So where is the morality when I choose to prolong my life and take up resources that others who have not been able to experience a full life due to their lack of resources? The moral action is not to prolong our lives, but to help those in need. Living longer is tempting, but selfishly

robbing others of limited natural resources is not worth the temptation, and is immoral.

=D<14AB60<4 In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morality Math,â&#x20AC;? philosopher John Davis â&#x20AC;&#x153;assumes a population of 100 will contain 31 Free Choicers, who take both the treatments and reproduce; 19 Forced Choicers who take the treatments and do not reproduce; and 50 Forced Choicers who refuse the treatments and choose to reproduce. The numbers reflect his own rough intuitions.â&#x20AC;? This is an interesting academic exercise in philosophy, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not math. These numbers have no basis in facts. Bioethicist Peter Singer â&#x20AC;&#x153;assumes that people have an average happiness of 5 out of a possible 10 during the first 75 years.â&#x20AC;? Again, where do these numbers come from? Are you 6 happy for the first 37.5 years and 4 happy for the last 37.5 years, or vice versa? Are

you 6 happy if you are born with a rich trust fund and 4 happy if you are a single working mom? Good math cannot be made from fanciful numbers. Morality and math actually have little to do with these life-extension treatments. Ultimately, this will come down to commerce. Will someone make lifeextension treatments? Yes, if someone will buy them. Will someone buy them? Yes.

H>DA7403;8=474A4 It is standard journalistic policy to set the headline of each letter to the editor to stand as a quick identifier of its message. So I must say that I find it curious that from time to time you diverge from that practiceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly when you print your occasional, token opposition letter. In those instances, you choose as a headline a remark intended as an editorial rebuttalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; instead of an objective summationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of the letterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actual text. You may find such shtiklakh clever, but the net effect is to cast doubt on the sincerity of your intentions in airing differing perspectives. The most recent example of this bit of disingenuousness is the title you assigned to the Eric Artman letter of March 31. The letter writer challenged the familiar leftward assumption that further binding of the people to government will generate a more compassionate social order. You may disagree with the letterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thesis, but that is Artmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view. However, your headline, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet Medicare Is a Huge Success,â&#x20AC;? does not summarize the letterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s textâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as would normally be the case with other letters you runâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but instead negates and tries to discredit it. Foul. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather not print the letter, that is your option as editor and publisher. If you do choose to run it, however, honesty calls for letting it speak for itself, without playing cutesy rebuttal games with your titling. If you fear that your own opinion might be otherwise misconstrued (fat chance, that), you can always write an editorialâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;up front. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mess with somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter. The policy is cheap, and you can do better.

SSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first annual Babaylan Conference helps FilipinoAmericans reverse cultural amnesia By David Sason

8

n Northern California, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shortage of Filipino Americans. (I am one of them myself.) But while boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao is certainly guaranteed ample space in the history books, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge chunk of Filipino culture thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in danger of being lost forever. Avoiding this fate is the mission of the International Babaylan Conference, slated for April 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18 at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are very many of us that have never even heard the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;babaylan,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Leny Strobel, associate professor of American multicultural studies at Sonoma State, and also the conference director and founder of the Center for Babaylan Studies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[By

attending the festival] you would understand what the babaylan tradition is, the practice, the concept, its primary meaning and its contemporary meaning in modern times.â&#x20AC;? The babaylan in an indigenous healer or shaman figure in traditional Filipino culture. Also known as catalonan, ma-aram, mombaki, man-nawac, beliyan, baylan and by many other names in different indigenous languages, this figure plays a central ingredient in every community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The babaylan is a person gifted to heal the spirit and the body, a woman who serves the community through her role as a folk therapist, wisdom-keeper and philosopherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one who provides stability to the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social structure,â&#x20AC;? Strobel says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She can access the spirit realm and has vast knowledge of healing therapies.â&#x20AC;?

Much like the indigenous tribes native to America, followers of the babaylan tradition were nearly destroyed by the onset of colonialism. When the Spanish arrived in the 1500s, these women were labeled as pagan and even satanic brujas (witches) by the friars of the Catholic faith that still dominates the spiritual landscape of the Philippines today. An expected identity shift followed suit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colonial mentality took its hold,â&#x20AC;? Strobel says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many educated Philippine people began to look down on their indigenous culture, and strived to be less and less native and more and more Western, like their colonizers.â&#x20AC;?

other guest â&#x20AC;&#x153;culture bearersâ&#x20AC;? who want to be immersed in the ways of their preEuropean-colonized ancestors. Artist and scholar Katrin de Guia will speak about the indigenous psychology concepts of kapwa, a Tagalog word denoting the concepts of both â&#x20AC;&#x153;self â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;others.â&#x20AC;? This type of interconnectedness seems a progressive concept, especially in the face of growing religious extremism, but Strobel reminds otherwise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This different worldview is not new; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that is very old,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indigenous spirituality was never separate; all is sacred. It is only with the development of modern identities that this split between secular and sacred came to be.â&#x20AC;? Likeminded individuals are allies, unwittingly or not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Van Jones calls this the need for a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reverence movement,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Strobel says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But regardless of what the contemporary movements in the U.S. might call it, indigenous peoples have always known and kept this knowledge in their cultural genes and memory.â&#x20AC;? Also appearing is Virgil Apostol, who is an Ilocano ablon healer. His speech will explore indigenous Babaylan healing techniques in relation to standard Western medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kind of knowledge that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had has always been scientific,â&#x20AC;? Strobel says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The literature being done by anthropologists and scientists is proving that shamanic knowledge is scientific and totally relevant to today.â&#x20AC;? Strobel first learned of babaylan endurance on a 2008 trip to the international Kapwa 2 Conference, whose theme that year was the relevance of the indigenous in the age of globalization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The conference was the catalyst of many years of questing for an integral answer to the question of how Filipinos in the diaspora can reclaim a connection to the homeland that is beneficial to the communities one is part of,â&#x20AC;? Strobel remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met babaylans, oralists, chanters, scholars, indigenous leaders, artists, culture bearers who, against the tide of globalizing forces, maintain their indigenous worldview and practices with so much integrity, creativity, strength and conviction. That was all I needed to be convinced that I was on the right path.â&#x20AC;? While the conference provides an important service to Filipino Americans, Strobel insists that the lessons of the babaylan are meant for everyone. With so many modern-day challenges, these teachings come just in time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Filipino value of kapwa [the self in the other] is always inclusive,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are extending our historical lens from 500 years of modernity to 10,000 years of how we have lived on the planet, changed its landscape and created the problems we have now. We hope that it will encourage participants to become more reflective of how we can face the crisis of our time.â&#x20AC;?

Napa stands against GEOs just in time to plant a sustainable food system By Juliane Poirier

C

he clear stand against genetically engineered organisms (GEOs) in Napa County is a boost to the future of safe food (oh, and wine) in the valley of the grapes. Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stakeholder message comes from the Napa Valley Farm Bureau, the Napa Valley Vintners Association, the Napa Valley Grapegrowers Association and a citizen group called Preserving the Integrity of Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Agriculture. It took almost three years of studying the issue together before the group finally agreed to apply the cautionary principle. Their statement, issued without fanfare on Nov. 30, 2009, declares: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until a clear and independent assessment of the risks and/or benefits to consumers and the environment associated with the exposure to or the consumption of genetically engineered products can be reached and a satisfactory regulatory framework is in place, we believe that there should be no GEO usage in Napa County.â&#x20AC;? I am cheering this development for many reasons, including my own hopes that Napa will make room around the vines for some cabbages and tomato plants of the non-GEO variety. History shows that Napa is a landuse trendsetter in the agricultural world. Politically speaking, Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect pairing is not food and wine but agriculture and aff luence. Farming elsewhere is typically not as profitable nor as glamorous and keenly observed as where well-tended vineyards provide the ideal backdrop to Tuscanyinspired McMansions. Here, where farmable land is scarce and très cher, stakeholderdriven stewardship models were developed decades ago and are now in use around the country. If Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land-use leadership in the past is any indication, chances are good that other farming communities may follow suit with efforts to ban GEOs. Such a movement is long overdue. Napa and the rest of the country lag far behind Europe, which has led the way for years with laws curbing and/or banning so-called Franken-foods and Franken-wines produced from lab-altered plant materials. Exceptions in California include Marin, Mendocino and Santa Cruz counties, which passed bans

on GEOs. Sonoma tried and failed to pass a ban five years ago, and Lake County has a disappointingly weak â&#x20AC;&#x153;registrationâ&#x20AC;? process for commercial crops but not a ban. Without a ban, there is no real regulation of GEOs, which represent a Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box already opened, since they were on the market before impacts of genetically altered crops were studied. With scant research data, humans and animals are at risk from direct ingestion of GEO plant materials and from the spread of GEOs to wild plant life via gene f low and cross-breeding. Genetically engineered grapevines, designed to resist Pierceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and vineyard pests, are expected to arrive on the market within this decade. Of more concern are genetically modified yeasts, which encourage stable fermentation and affect the f lavor of wines; these are already on the shelves in bottles of wine any of us might have sipped at a party lately. Weak EPA regulations place the burden of proof of safety upon the bioengineering corporations, so there are no protections for the public or nearby plants. Monsanto has been laughing all the way to the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;first forcing GE materials on farmers, and then when the inevitable pollen drift leading to gene f low occurred, suing farmers whose crops were infected with trademarked genetic material. California had to pass AB 541 in 2008 to protect farmers from those insult-to-injury lawsuits. Yes, Napa has been slow to take a stand, but the stakeholder statement opens the doors to a voter ban in the future. And if Napa bans GEOsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially if enough locals brag about it to the almost 5 million tourists each year who find Napa alluring enough to visit and admireâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;then farming communities elsewhere might spot a trend and follow it. I hope they do. Meanwhile, Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agricultural commissioner is inviting â&#x20AC;&#x153;anyone with a vision to expand agricultural diversity and create greater access to the entire Napa communityâ&#x20AC;? to a discussion of a local, sustainable food system. Talk beginsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;over wine and food, of courseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on April 28 at the first annual Napa Local Food Forum.

CX__X]VBRP[Tb Fish farms and sea lice are among salmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many problems By Alastair Bland

8

n late January, Target Corporation announced its firm intentions to remove all farmed salmon from its shelves by the end of 2010. Fresh, frozen and smoked salmon will be phased out first, while its farmed salmon sushi may remain available until late in the year, according to statements issued by the mega-retailer. Wild Alaskan salmon will replace the farmed product as the giant retailer aims to improve its support of sustainable seafood. The production of farmed salmon, say biologists, fishermen and academics, is a leading cause of dwindling wild salmon populations across the Northern Hemisphere. Salmon farms can generate thick outbreaks of sea lice, natural marine parasites that do not harm most adult fish but can kill juvenile salmon if assailed in large numbers. Scientists in Europe and Canada have documented close correlations between the presence of salmon farms and declines in local wild salmon. Coastal British Columbia has seen large reductions in wild salmon abundance, especially around the northern end of Vancouver

Island, a region heavily used by salmon farming companies. For Kenny Belov, Targetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision comes as a sign of great hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is fantastic,â&#x20AC;? says Belov, who owns Fish restaurant in Sausalito, where farmed salmon has never been served. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see a huge corporation take the first step and lead the way, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make a difference.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Still, the salmon-farming industry remains a powerful lobby. In 2008, British Columbia produced 73,260 metric tons of aquatic food. Americans consumed some 80 percent of it. This hunger is devastating Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wild salmon, says Dr. Daniel Pauly, who has no doubt that salmon farms have destroyed many populations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The science has been done, and the jury is in,â&#x20AC;? says the professor of fisheries at the University of British Columbia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sea lice are one of the biggest problems these fish face.â&#x20AC;? In the Broughton Archipelago at the north end of Vancouver Island, wild pink salmon numbers have plummeted since the salmonfarming industry first arrived in the region in the 1980s. With sea lice named as the probable cause, scientist Marty Krkosek published a paper in the December 2007 issue of Science in which

he calculated that pink salmon throughout the Broughton islands would be extinct by 2016 at the current rate of decline. Krkosekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dire report set wheels in motion. At the urging of activists and researchers, Marine Harvest Canada, a major farmed-salmon producer, agreed in 2009 to harvest three of its facilities unusually early, prior to the time that newly hatched pink salmon pass through the region as they exit their streams of birth. The firm heavily treated a fourth major farm with Slice, a widely used antiâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;sea lice agent, and the efforts were successful; a tremendous surge of outmigrating juvenile pink salmon passed through the region unaffected by sea lice in the spring of 2009. Pink salmon return to freshwater to spawn after just one year at sea, says Dr. Craig Orr, executive director of Watershed Watch Salmon Society, an NGO in Vancouver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With any luck, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a big run in 2010,â&#x20AC;? he says. Orr cautions that the use of Slice to knock down sea-lice numbers should be considered an emergency measure only. In Europe and Eastern Canada, sea lice have developed resistance to the product, and the chemicalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effects on wild crustaceans are not yet understood. &) THE BOHEMIAN

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see using chemicals to treat for lice as a good long-term solution,â&#x20AC;? Orr says. Factors other than small parasites may be at play in the collapse of what was until recently one of the largest runs of salmon in the world, the Fraser River sockeye. The 2009 return amounted to one-tenth of what the Canadian federal government had predicted and about 5 percent of the 20 million fish that historically returned to spawn in the river. Experts cite global warming, less productive ocean waters, overfishing and predation by native marine mammals as possible causes of the crash, but salmon farms top the list of probable culprits. Stan Proboszcz, a fisheries biologist with Watershed Watch, believes that bacterial diseases, as well as lice, produced by salmon farms may be imperiling wild sockeyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the fish farms arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helping us in determining this,â&#x20AC;? Proboszcz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish we knew if the farms have had any disease outbreaks. That would help, but transparency is a big problem. Farms wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t report diseases.â&#x20AC;? The Fraser River disaster spurred the gathering of a scientific think tank in December 2009, during which meeting the group suggested to Fisheries and Oceans Canada that the federal agency experimentally fallow all fish farms near the mouth of the Fraser for one year. The federal government has also ordered its own formal inquiry into causes of the crash of the sockeye, whose 2009 returns were the smallest in five decades. When â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scottish farmed salmon,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;organic farmed salmonâ&#x20AC;? or something of the sort appears on a restaurant menu, sustainablefishery experts suggest asking whether the fish was raised by the Scottish company Loch Duart, a farm revered by many world-class restaurants for producing organic, artisanal, natural and healthy salmon. But when we asked a few tough questions of CleanFish Alliance, a San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based seafood distributor that formally represents Loch Duart, no one was willing to talk. Specifically, we asked whether the esteemed Scottish fish farm utilizes coloring agents or sea-lice treatments in its feed, and the conversation, which had been progressing rapidly and enthusiastically via phone and email, ended abruptly. We made multiple efforts to resume the dialogue, to no avail. The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, however, was able to provide some helpful information. Turns out that Loch Duart utilizes the same standard chemical treatments applied by most other salmon farms, including consistent use of parasite treatments Slice, Panacur and Excis. CleanFishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reluctance to discuss whether or not Loch Duart uses the popular coloring agents astaxanthin and canthaxanthin suggests, wellâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;99 percent of all farmed salmon would be as gray as the Scottish winter sky if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t artificially colored. Belov would like to see the local restaurant community take action for sustainable fishing, but he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t holding his breath. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chefs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to say no to that customer who comes in and asks, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my salmon?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Nonperishables, canned vegetables, pasta, beans, peanut butterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;kitchen staples that can be given to the ill, the homeless, the poor. The SuperFood Drive applauds our efforts, but reminds that when altruistically shopping, one can do better than white ďŹ&#x201A;our, high fructose corn syrup and other empty calorie carriers. When altruistically shopping, perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to think as you do when shopping for family: whole grains, nutritious beans, real fruit juice, brown riceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;healthy foods.

The brainchild of Ruthi Solari, SuperFood Drive strives to educate those poised to give to choose quinoa instead of white rice, dried blueberries instead of syrup-packed pineapple, black beans instead of their refried brethren. Based in San Diego, Solari comes to the North Bay on April 16 for a fundraiser for her new nonproďŹ t that beneďŹ ts the Redwood Empire Food Bank and features a four-course meal and screening of the documentary Food, Inc. This event is private, but SuperFood Drive looks to host regular events in the coming months. www.superfooddrive.com.

4H4>5C74 C>03 n account of the rainy weather, inattention, sheer laziness, whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d failed to spray herbicide this winter, so a-weed-whacking I went. As green stalks of grass and weeds shredded into a ďŹ ne spray of cellulose, I spied a wriggling, glistening spot on the ground. A large toad, crouched in a shallow depression, had escaped a most unpleasant end by merely half an inch. So sorry, Mr. Toad, I said as I scooped him up and, after a brief photo shoot, brought him to an undisturbed marshy area. I promise that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roundupâ&#x20AC;? on schedule next time.

O

Ah, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the rub. Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsantoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular herbicide, is toxic to aquatic organisms. While it works by interrupting a biosynthetic pathway that plants have and animals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, glyphosate is more than controversial. When I call the ofďŹ ce of the Sonoma County Agricultural Commissioner to ask advice on its use, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m simply told, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We go by the label.â&#x20AC;? Which label (roughly) says: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spray it on water, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cool. As a venerable viticultural instructor once crowed reassuringlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and inaccuratelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to our class, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hell, you can practically drink the stuff!â&#x20AC;? Virginia Lambrix, biodynamic consultant at TruettHurst Winery, is not so sanguine about Roundupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unknown-unknowns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does mechanical weed-whacking and cultivation, mowing, cost more with respect to both time and fossil fuels?â&#x20AC;? she asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes. But at least I have a better idea as to the consequencesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a decapitated toad or sliced earthwormâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;than with the chemical approach.â&#x20AC;? If I could ask an anthropomorphized Mr. Toad, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure my soft-hearted self-interest and his would harmonize. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Put down that noisy thing, my good fellow. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d much rather, er, take my chances with that weed-be-gone spritzer of yours than face the string. Besides, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother with an old, bare patch of ground, anyway.â&#x20AC;? But for Lambrix, that lifeless dirt is the problem, starting a cycle of dependence on chemical fertilizers and fungicides that replace the effects of beneďŹ cial microorganisms. We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to look at their eyes. One way or the other, I guess that for all the boasting on slick brochures about how lightly a winery treads on the earth, the making of good red wine is not a bloodless business. Apropos of nothing but the name, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taste Toad Hollow Vineyardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eye of the Toadâ&#x20AC;? Dry Pinot Noir RosĂŠ (for which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told â&#x20AC;&#x153;no toads were harmedâ&#x20AC;?). Sourced from a sustainably farmed Carneros vineyard, this rosĂŠ has aromas of rose blossom and guava, and while bone-dry, has a satisfying weight on the palate. At only 11 percent alcohol, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt too much; but a few glasses put me in pleasant repose, at a comfortable distance from unhappy memories of Mr. Vole. Oh, let us not even speak of Mr. Vole. Toad Hollowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current release is the 2009 Dry Pinot Noir RosĂŠ ($8.99). Toad Hollow, 409-A Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. 707.431.8667. Truett-Hurst Winery, 5610 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. 707.433.9545.

have two f lavors of brain cells here,â&#x20AC;? says Julie Mangada, a postdoctoral fellow at Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Buck Institute, as she carries over two petri dishes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re called neuronal stem cells or NSBs, which are baby brain cells.â&#x20AC;? We are standing in the Buckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zeng Lab beside a microscope. The petri dishes Mangada has brought out of a refrigerator contain the primary thing the lab has been working on: embryonic stem cells that are turning into brain cells. The first set of baby brain cells Mangada shows me are six weeks old. Under the microscope, they look like triangular blobs with one or two of the trailing veinlike connectors we associate with brain cells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we already have some renegade cells that are differentiating here,â&#x20AC;? Mangada says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The triangular guys, each one is a cell. And then you

can see here,â&#x20AC;? she points to one of the veinlike connectors, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this guy is kind of stretching his arms and legs to bridge this cavern. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking for neighboring cells that he can form synaptic connections with.â&#x20AC;? Next, she shows me brain cells that have been developing for four months. There are millions of them by now, so many that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get the microscope to focus on them all. Most of the cells are reaching out with the same trailing connectors, called axons and dendrites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see this dense fibrous network throughout here?â&#x20AC;? Mangada asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These little cells are actually forming processes and trying to make connections with all their neighbors.â&#x20AC;? Getting stem cells to change like this, a process called differentiation, is complex. Behind us is another refrigerator filled with bottles of amino acids, proteins and other solutions that postdoctoral fellows like Mangada have been feeding the petri dishes every day. Most of the

stem cells will end up as dopamine-producing neurons that can be used in research for Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. A patient with Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slowly loses muscle coordination because of a depletion of dopamine in the brain, which helps with fluidity of movement. If scientists could get good at developing dopaminergic neurons from stem cells, they might be able to transplant them into the brain of a Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patient, replace the unhealthy cells and cure the disease. This is the kind of potential stem-cell research promises. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder, then, that the Buck Institute will soon be breaking ground on a $41 million building devoted entirely to the study of stem cells. In 2008, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) awarded Buck a $20.5 million grant for the building. Buck had planned to match the grant by 2009, but the recession slowed things down. Now, '' THE BOHEMIAN

however, the funding is back on track, and construction starts June 1. The new building will be 66,000 square feet and include $1.9 million in equipment. It is the third of five buildings planned for the Buck Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Novato campus, which was designed by architect I. M. Pei, who also did the pyramid for the Louvre Museum in Paris. In addition to current stem-cell work, the new building will allow Buck to expand into research related to the aging process or aging-related diseases such as Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Huntingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and even cancer.

At first glance, stem cells seem inconsistent with Buckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission to fight aging. After all, the existing research building on the campus is devoted to looking at the life cycles of such short-lived creatures as gnats, yeast and worms, and applying that information to human beings. Stem cells, by contrast, are embroiled in a political controversy that pits where they come from against their life-saving possibilities. But stem cells are also the origins of human development. They can turn into any cell in the body, and from them come all our organs and, in fact, the body itself. Studying this is key to understanding how the body develops and why it stops developing as we age. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you take skin cells, they will undergo a process [that] is kind of like aging, and then they will die,â&#x20AC;? says Xianmin Zeng. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But embryonic stem cells do not die. So my view of life when you use this to study aging is, if you look at something that does not age, then maybe you can find some clue to the scientific basis of why aging is happening.â&#x20AC;? Zeng, originally from China, is developing the stem-cells program with David Greenberg, a vice president and professor at Buck who co-wrote the proposal for the CIRM grant. The building will be an expansion of the Zeng Lab, which she started in 2005 when she came to Buck. Previously, Zeng worked at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where, among other things, she helped derive a variant of one of the federally approved embryonic stem-cell lines. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt that Zeng loves stem cells, particularly stem cells that come from an embryo. While she enjoys developing brain cells for Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research and drug testing (another advantage of stem cells is that they create an alternative to animal testing because you can put the drug directly on human cells instead of another species), it is really the science that draws her in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, there is the basic biology,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just to look at how cells from a stem cell become neurons, there is a lot of the process to look at. And which genes regulate this process is also interesting. That is my basic interest, developmental biology.â&#x20AC;?

Once scientists understand how stem cells work, they will have a clear picture of how to manipulate them, which can lead to new therapeutic potential. But for now, some things about stem cells are still a mystery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully understand how stem cells go from primitive cells and turn into other types of cells,â&#x20AC;? Greenberg says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand parts of it, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand what makes one stem cell turn into a brain cell and what makes another turn into a blood cell.â&#x20AC;?

The Buck Institute will soon be breaking ground on a $41 million building devoted entirely to the study of stem cells. As part of this quest for learning, the new building will also train students on stemcell research. Buck is one of six designated training centers for growing stem-cell colonies in California, which is one of the reasons postdoctoral fellows like Mangada have an opportunity to learn while doing the work of the lab. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the people who do the research in the lab are postdocs, which is kind of like finishing school for Ph.D.s,â&#x20AC;? says Mangada, a Petaluma native who did her postdoctoral work at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so great here is that you just learn. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the whole purpose and point of it. You study and expand your repertoire of technical skills.â&#x20AC;? This December, Buck received an additional $1.6 million grant from CIRM for its research-training program, which will allow it in part to hire six more postdocs or medical students this summer.

The Problem with Embryos Buckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stem-cell research will use all three types of stem cells: adult, embryo and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). Adult stem cells are found in organs and are only capable of producing cells for that organ. For example, a bone-marrow stem cell can produce all of the 40 different types of cells in peripheral blood, which is what provides your body with a new supply of blood when you need it. Scientists have been working

with adult stem cells for years. The first bone-marrow transplantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is when unhealthy bone-marrow stem cells are replaced with healthy onesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;happened in 1968. But adult stem cells are hard to isolate and purify, and there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many of them. Enter embryonic stem cells. These cells, which come from a human embryo, are much more versatile because they can be manipulated to grow any cell in the body. They could provide scientists with as many of whatever kind of cells they need, which opens up an array of possibilities. Induced pluripotent stem cells are adult cells, such as skin cells, that have been altered in the lab to look and act like embryonic stem cells. This breakthrough, first done with human cells in 2007, could end the debate over stem-cell research, because iPSCs do not require the use of an embryo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in the infancy of the iPSC cells, but the potential is huge,â&#x20AC;? says Zeng. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If [you need] a stem-cell transplant, you can get the cells from your own body. That means your immune system would not reject the cells. In the medical field, it would be a huge plus,

because the patient wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need immunal suppression. If you suppress the immune system, you are subject to a lot of infections and other diseases.â&#x20AC;? But iPSCs are only three years old. At this point, it takes many attempts to get even a few adult cells to revert to the embryonic state, which means that the production of iPSCs is inefficient and expensive. Also, there are problems with shutting off the genes that prompt the cells to revert. Two genes in particular stop cell division, which is one of the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defenses against cancer. That means that tissue derived through iPSCs could be pre-cancerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re loaded with mutations,â&#x20AC;? says Judy Campisi, a professor on genome maintenance, aging and cancer at Buck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These genesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; job is to make sure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have runaway proliferation of mutated genomes. So, if you want to improve the efficiency of the iPSC, you can kill those genes, but then you give rise to these stem cells that are pre-cancerous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a tension between getting good healthy stem cells that are not cancerous and getting the efficiency up to make iPSCs work.â&#x20AC;?

Why Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Not a Baby For the time being, embryonic stem cells have the best potential for research. Many opponents of stem-cell research believe that embryonic stem cells come from aborted fetuses. That is not true. Embryonic stem cells come from in vitro fertilization centers. When two people try to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization, the doctor often creates more embryos than will be implanted into the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uterus. The couple can then pay to store the embryos for use at a later date. If they decide not to store them, they have the option of donating the embryos to medical science, which can then go to stem-cell research. If not, the embryos are discarded. The term â&#x20AC;&#x153;embryoâ&#x20AC;? here refers to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hollow microscopic ball of cells called the blastocyst,â&#x20AC;? according to the NIH. The blastocyst is between five to eight days old. An aborted fetus could not be used for embryonic stem-cell research; by the time a woman knew she was pregnant, the fetus would already be too developed to be useful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The confusion comes from the definition of embryo,â&#x20AC;? says Erik Forsberg, executive director of WiCell Research Institute, which has provided NIH-approved stem-cell lines to facilities like the Buck Institute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is confusing to people new to the field, because people call fetuses embryos. These embryonic stem cells are typically pre-implant embryos that are seven to eight days old. They are less than 1,000 cells, smaller than a head of a pin.â&#x20AC;? Still, some opponents believe that life begins as soon as a sperm fertilizes an egg, and this belief has informed public policy. In August 2001, President Bush drew what is referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bush lineâ&#x20AC;? by saying that no federal funding could be used for new stem-cell lines developed after that date. If scientists wanted to receive federal funding, they had to use one of the 21 embryonic stem-cell lines previously approved by the government. These lines came from all over the world, including Sweden, Israel, San Francisco and WiCell in Wisconsin. The Bush line made everything complicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was confusion about whether the same equipment could be used,â&#x20AC;? says Greenberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you buy a microscope with a fed grant, could you look at stem cells under it that were not NIH approved? The implication was that you had to duplicate a lot of thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;equipment, even buildings. CIRM took a lot of that away.â&#x20AC;? In 2004, California voters passed Proposition 71, which created CIRM to distribute $3 billion in funding to stem-cell research. The Buck Institute would not have the new building without Prop. 71. In fact, given the complexities and lack of reliable funding, the institute might not have even looked into studying stem cells at all.

Incidentally, while President Obama is friendlier to stem cells, government change is slow. The NIH is setting up new guidelines, but in the meantime, federal funding for stem-cell research remains difficult.

Cancer & Stem Cells Perhaps because of its location in Marin County, which has one of the highest breast-cancer rates in the country, the Buck Institute may look into the relationship between stem cells and cancer. New information suggests that stem cells may play a role in why cancer sometimes comes back.

An aborted fetus could not be used for embryonic stem-cell research; by the time a woman knew she was pregnant, the fetus would already be too developed to be useful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have a tumor mass, and you can apply radiotherapy or chemotherapy or even surgery on the tumor,â&#x20AC;? Campisi says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will usually kill off the tumor cells for some period of time. A big problem in cancer therapy is that after a period of time, the cancer comes back. The question is, why? The idea is that for at least some cancers, there is a stem cell that is slowly replicated, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not very susceptible to chemotherapy.â&#x20AC;? While radiation and chemotherapy are killing the cancerous cells, the stem cell is lying dormant. After awhile, it starts slowly cycling and renews itself, dividing so that there are new cancer cells and new stem cells. But the extent the stem cell plays here is still unclear. For one thing, cancerous stem cells have only been identified in certain types of tumors. For another, scientists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much new tumors are fueled by stem cells and how much they are caused by mutation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questions like these that make stem-cell research complicated. On one hand, stem cells may give us new clues to longstanding scourges like cancer, but on the other hand, they carry new complexities to be addressed. Which is exactly why we need to study them, says Campisi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning more and more,â&#x20AC;? she says carefully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a little bit optimistic. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get there eventually.â&#x20AC;?

>eTaU[^fX]V5X[\ The only problem with this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SIFF is finding the time to see them all By David Templeton

:

evin McNeely has been watching movies for months. Hundreds and hundreds of movies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a while there, I kind of went cross-eyed, watching so many films,â&#x20AC;? laughs McNeely, who is the director of this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sonoma International Film Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately, I love it. Watching films is such a rare opportunity to see the world through the eyes of all these filmmakers, to see what they see, to learn what they believe in and to hear their stories.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the fabulous annual filmic fiesta, which runs April 15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18, marks the 13th go-round for the homegrown festival. Formerly the Sonoma Valley Film Festival, it was last year gilded with the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;International,â&#x20AC;? in part to identify its status, carefully cultivated over the last several years, as a prime destination festival. Last year, McNeelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s served as the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board chair for many seasonsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;took over the reins from 2009 director Louisa Percudani. Admitting that last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival was a bit wobbly and unfocused, McNeely is proud of the changes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ushered in for 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been involved with the festival since nearly day one,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I

feel very, very committed toâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or maybe I should be committed. I feel like this festival is a beautiful ship that was foundering and needed to be righted. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now got a wonderfully cohesive team that has been working hard at doing just that. This is going to be a very special festival.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 74 films were selected from a combination of more than 600 outside submissions and from trips to large film festivals. With several venues operating within walking distance of downtown Sonoma, McNeely and company have put extra emphasis on world premieres this year (18 of them are scheduled), also slotting in a number of high-profile documentaries. In fact, for the first time, the festival will blast off with a documentary on opening night. That film, Coals to Newcastle, follows the cult-favorite U.K. band the New Mastersounds on their 2007 trip to post-Katrina New Orleans. The New Mastersounds will make an appearance with the film, and will play the after-party as well. Other notable films include Thursday and Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Outsourced, a romantic comedy about a Seattle call center that is outsourced to India; The Singularity Is Near, a mind-expanding documentary by scientist Raymond Kurzweil, who co-created the synthesizer; and The Joneses, a dark comedy about middle-class neighbors who turn out to be more than they appear, starring

Lauren Hutton, Demi Moore and David Duchovny. Hutton is the focus of Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tribute, which is hosted by Robin Williams. With the exception of two films, every movie screened this year will be accompanied by one of the filmmakers or actors in that film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a goal,â&#x20AC;? McNeely says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never come this close to doing it with every film we are showing. So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very special, and will make attending these screenings a lot more fun and interesting for everyone.â&#x20AC;? Among the new attractions this year is a space at the Vintage House, which will be devoted solely to short films, and a screening area at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, where art-themed movies will be screened once a day, with special events accompanying them. Another big new addition is the Back Lot, a massive plaza tent that will be decked out as a deluxe living room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect the Back Lot to be a very lively place,â&#x20AC;? McNeely says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big topic of discussion, I think, is going to be, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Which films do we see?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be an easy choice.

THE BOHEMIAN



hen pondering the theatrical works of Jean-Baptiste Molière, one tends to forget that the prolific Frenchmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays were not always 350 years old. Despite the hoary titles (The Misanthrope, The Imaginary Invalid, The School for Wives), despite the rhyming verse and mysterious 17th-century references, Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays were once the hot new thing in town. Consider, for example, Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic farce Tartuffe, which just opened at the Sixth Street Playhouse with a vibrantly funny production directed by Sheri Lee Miller. In the play, a pious man of God is revealed to be a conniving sexual reprobate and avaricious hypocrite. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost shocking how â&#x20AC;&#x153;moderndayâ&#x20AC;? that scenario seems. Tartuffe (played with smoldering, confident devilry by Keith Baker) was a penniless priest until taken in by gullible landowner Orgon (Eric Thompson). Though ruling the household with over-the-top, sin-hating strictness, Tartuffeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hypocrisy is obvious to nearly everyone in Orgonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house: his desirable wife, Elmire (Jenifer CotĂŠ), who knows sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caught Tartuffeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lascivious eye; Orgonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready-to-rumble son, Damis (Freddie Lambert), and headstrong daughter, Marianne (Kendall Carroll); his wise older brother, Cleante (John Craven); and especially Dorine, the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delightfully opinionated maid (Mary Gannon Graham). When Orgon sets out to marry Marianne to Tartuffe, the family concocts a plan to unmask the unholy holy man, with increasingly alarming consequences. Tartuffe is no fool, and is one step ahead of everyone, right up to the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasty last-minute twist. Emboldened by a smart, lively

translation by Richard Wilbur, the cast has great fun with Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famously comic language. In this production, the cast uses the rhyme to comic effect, rather than allowing the rhyme to use them. Miller (director of 2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Death of a Salesman) has proven herself a master at breathing new life into familiar works, and she brilliantly captures the anti-establishment essence of Tartuffe by integrating coyly smart-ass anachronisms (including an inspired use of Marvin Gayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Get It Onâ&#x20AC;?). Baker, as Tartuffe, avoids the common pitfall of trying too hard to make the central villain understandably, forgivably human. For the play to work, Tartuffe must be enjoyably funny, but for the ending to work, he must also be convincingly hateful. Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bravely subtle performance accomplishes this by maintaining a steady consistency of character. We know he is a villain from the moment he appears (his entrance underscored strains of the famous Psycho shower music), but it is Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bemused menace that makes the character frightening when he needs to be. That Baker even makes Tartuffe a menacing presence when standing in the all-but-altogether, is further testament to his abilities as an actor. Enhanced even further by an eye-candy set, John Connole and Pamela Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opulent, clever costumes (ranging from gorgeous gowns and epauletted leather vests to a certain ballsy employment of thong underwear), this Tartuffe is no mere museum piece. Thanks to Miller and her able cast, this is a comedy that is 100 percent vital and alive. Even after 350 years, it can still pack a pleasing punch. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tartuffeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through May 2 at the Sixth Street Playhouse. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday at 2pm. 52 W. Sixth St., Santa Rosa. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$28. 707.523.4185.

Art heroes and villains collide in Banksyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Exitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Richard von Busack

7

ooded like a terrorist, hiding in the cavelike shadows of his studio, his face obscured, his voice digitally scrambled, the mysterious English street artist Banksy narrates a twisted tale of fine art in Exit Through the Gift Shop. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tale you might want to drop everything to hear. The documentaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actual subject isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the elusive graffitist Bansky, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Scarlet Pimpernel of art,â&#x20AC;? as one of his journalist fans called him. Instead, Bansky narrates a parable about the career of a boutique owner named Thierry Guetta. Guetta is a friendly, muttonchopped, French-born Los Angeles boutique owner whose video documentation of a covert scene led, eventually, to Guettaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own dreadful macking on the same. The Frenchman was certainly in the right place at the right time. He recorded the bombers, taggers and zappers of the oughties: his own cousin, the pop-mosaic artist â&#x20AC;&#x153;Space Invader,â&#x20AC;? and Shepard Fairey, artist of the best-known image of President Obama. And there were other late-night crawlers and shinnyiers, painting and postering the vacant zones of L.A., New York, London, New Orleans and Paris. Thierry and Bansky follow the most recent artists in this scene, whose modern digital printers allow a perfection of line and repetition of image that the pioneering 1980s punk-saboteurs could only dream about. But just as the visuals became more perfect, so did modes of police surveillance. Banksyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art has soul as well as easily accessible political content. He takes on well-guarded subjects of oppression, from the British pound note to the Israeli security wall. The best scene in this movie may be the brief interview with a cloth-coated, middleaged English woman, as humble as a button. A journalist stops her as she leaves the scene

of Banksyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest art crime: a mutilated red London telephone booth. The half-smiling lady murmurs to the interviewer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very happy with British Telecom.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I work in a legal gray area,â&#x20AC;? Banksy says. Could the Pimpernel have said it any better? He even takes on Disneyland to make a little public memorial to the tortured at Guantanamo. The piece, quickly discovered, is the peak of the GuettaBansky partnership, as Banksyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ingenuity is documented by a never bolder Guetta. Apprehended, Guetta, also known now as Mr. Brainwash, stands up to the Magic Dictatorshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interrogators like a brave 1940s movie Gaul baff ling the Gestapo. Is Exit Through the Gift Shop a tale of fine art? The subject here is the story of any and all self-publicists: Nicholas Sparks, Sarah Palin, this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yodeler on American Idolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;anyone who can shove their egos into the agora. It figures. Mr. Brainwashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;artâ&#x20AC;? is used to adorn the collected recordings of that certain mega-diva who has been called (by David Thomson) â&#x20AC;&#x153;an advertisement for advertisement.â&#x20AC;? What a gulf of distance between that portrait of M â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a and a Banksy-decorated railroad viaduct: a poster with the simple, block-lettered words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another Crap Advert.â&#x20AC;? Exit Through the Gift Shop is about anonymous craftsmanship eclipsed by the sun-gun of self-publicity, of lonely late-night vigils and illegal attacks on consensus reality, elbowed aside by hucksterism on a Dalilevel scale. Inevitably, hype, pandering and foolishness replaced the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacred tools of silence, exile and cunning.

Blue in Greene No longer the young blues wunderkind from Sacramento, Jackie Greene is now all grown up with the weighty title â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Prince of Americanaâ&#x20AC;? conferred upon his black-haired head by none other than the New York Times. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nowhere more evident than on his latest album Giving Up the Ghost, which finds Greene easing his old-before-its-time voice into casual songs buoyed by members from Los Lobos and Elvis Costelloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band. With a star turn in Phil Leshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band and a night playing Rolling Stones songs with Govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Mule, Greene positions himself as a valuable young torchbearer of the baby-boomer f lameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;unique enough to sound his own voice, familiar enough to cause a few jolts of pride in the enduring appeal of Americana music. He plays on Saturday, April 17, at the Mystic Theatre. 21 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 9pm. $22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.765.2121.

Canja Rave are often referred to as the White Stripes of Brazil, and not without reason. Singer-guitarist Chris Kochenborger and his musical and romantic interest, drummer Paula Nozzari, whip up an unapologetically loud, bombastic sound thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more Detroit beat than tropical heat. But if Kochenborgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitar solos on songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Xerife de Xangri-lĂĄâ&#x20AC;? sound eerily similar to Jack White songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Smell a Rat,â&#x20AC;? one need look no further than White Stripesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; producer Jim Diamond, who helmed Canja Raveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest album, Badango. On a tour of America partially funded by the Brazilian governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ministerio de Cultura, Canja Rave have finally been getting some overdue stateside attention after a head-turning set at SXSW earlier this year. They return to Santa Rosa for two separate shows with locals HugeLarge this weekend on Saturday, April 17, at the Toad in the Hole (116 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 9:30pm; $5; 707.544.8623) and Sunday, April 18, at the Last Record Store (1899 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 2pm; Free; 707.525.1963).

Mini-Jazz Fest The great tenor saxophone player Bill Barron, who recorded throughout the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, always had one major stipulation in his recording deal: that his little brother Kenny would always be his piano player. The elder Barron died in 1989, but Kenny Barron has since made quite a name for himself as one of modern jazzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most lyrical pianists. Barron comes to Napa this weekend with the angular violinist Regina Carter, the Sinatra-esque vocalist Kurt Elling and Diana Krallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s righthand guitar man Russell Malone in the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour. All four players are adaptable to nearly any setting, and an evening in Napa should bring light, enjoyable fare for even the most casual jazz fan. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect wild out-there jazz excursionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promo video features the Romberg-Hammerstein standard â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I Grow Too Old to Dreamâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;when the Monterey Jazz Festival touring group plays Saturday, April 17, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $40â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$45. 707.226.7372.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conscious party people, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to party, say yeah!â&#x20AC;? So chants Prezident Brown, the Jamaican DJ and singer who returns to the States this weekend for another in a string of excellent reggae bookings at 19 Broadway. (Who does their booking now? Chris Blackwell?) Brown caught our attention at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reggae Rising festival with his more relaxed take on dancehall, and his latest album continues in that same varied bag. With songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Easy Does Itâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled,â&#x20AC;? Brown offers solace, while tracks like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghetto Youthâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Own Rebelâ&#x20AC;? tilt at social awareness. A genuine feel for the music is Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace in the hole, a feel that came from studying under famous reggae producer Jack Ruby and performing on those huge, unwieldy mobile sound systems built in the 1970s that now live mostly on college studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; T-shirts instead of in the streets. Come hang with the real deal when Prezident Brown lights it up in a joint appearance with the legendary Wailing Souls on Friday, April 16, at 19 Broadway Niteclub. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 9pm. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 415.459.1091.

THE BOHEMIAN

The U.K.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mad Professor still twisting minds n the post-Portishead trip-hop roulette of the midâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, with record labels scrambling for anything remotely blunted and British, Neil Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number finally came up. After over a decade of groundbreaking dub production in the United Kingdom that went largely unnoticed outside of reggae circles and the famously prescient BBC DJ John Peel, the dub clinician known as Mad Professor got a call that would change his career path permanently. A humble band from Bristol named Massive Attack had a successful sophomore album, Protection, and was Mad Professor by chance interested in remixing it for a proper release? The resulting full-length No Protection is still Mad Professorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-known work, and it sticks as something both very cohesive and unrepresentative in his discography. Deep and spacey with heavy bass, the dub reworking renders No Protection a mine of surprising detail. This is what dub remixes are forâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to zero in on one sound, extract its impact through effects, and send it to the forefront of the cerebral cortex. While Sandinista! introduced an â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s generation to dub, No Protection instructed and intoxicated their children. And yet Mad Professor doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong on the triphop stage, if there even is such a thing anymore. An astute disciple of Lee â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scratchâ&#x20AC;? Perry, he belongs either in a dark club twisting knobs or a dank studio twisting a spliff, not messing around with passing fads. This weekend, now 55 years old, he makes a guest stop at Monday Night Edutainment with Chukki Starr and Gappy Ranks, and no dub fan in the North Bay should be caught anywhere else that night. Warm yourself up for Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4/20 festivities when Mad Professor plays on Monday, April 19, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9pm. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.829.7300.

3>2CA8=40=32>E4=0=CB Truthliveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Patienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pays off with a stellar debut

t seems like only yesterday that Evan Phillips was DJing local joints like the Inn of the Beginning and Cloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ice Creamery, but in actuality, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a full decade between those early nightclub excursions and this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of his first proper debut album, Patience. And though the MC, DJ and producer known as Truthlive has since started the successful label Interdependent Media with fellow Santa Rosan Domenic Del Beneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;releasing acclaimed albums by Kâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;naan, Tanya Morgan and Finaleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Patience shows that Truthliveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first love, and deeprooted talent, is on the mic. Produced entirely by red-hot Dr. Dre cohort Jake One, Patience oozes with haunting beats and blurbs of bass; elsewhere, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glockenspiel, tambourine and scratchy horn samples to ďŹ ll out the mix. Yet Truthliveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrical prowess is what steals the show here, and anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever cynically naysayed the idea of a truly great hip-hop album from Santa Rosa is about to get a threeegg omelette on his face. Truthlive is smart and aware without falling into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;socially consciousâ&#x20AC;? hip-hop trap; on â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Do You,â&#x20AC;? he likens big business to phony rappers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corporations run the nation,â&#x20AC;? he spits, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Selling violence, fear, sex and degradation / Money makinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, takinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives, fakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, frontinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; all the time / Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change the whole design, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a monster with these rhymes.â&#x20AC;? Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finale, who blazed up year-end lists last year with A Pipe Dream and a Promise, guests on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catalyst for Change,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bush Yearsâ&#x20AC;? manages to evoke those lousy eight years in a timeless fashion. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one essential track to download, though, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nature of Man,â&#x20AC;? an epic piano-driven closer into which Truthlive puts his entire mission in a nonstop collision of the personal and the political. It sits ďŹ rmly in the Top 5 Greatest Rap Songs from Santa Rosa, and is easily the No. 1 Greatest Rap Song Recorded Behind the 440 Club. Truthlive celebrates the release of Patience with Amp Live and Zumbi from Zion-I, Donwill from Tanya Morgan, Moe Green and the Park on Friday, April 16, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 9pm. $10 advance tickets come with free 45; $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15 at the door. 707.545.2343.

Reissue of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;White Bread Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; showcases Victims Familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longevity By Leilani Clark

8

n 1990, as the first Bush era and its â&#x20AC;&#x153;thousand points of lightâ&#x20AC;? kicked into full force, Mordam Records released White Bread Blues, the third album by the now-legendary Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;bred band Victims Family. Guitarist and singer Ralph Spightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viciously rubbery riffs were flooded with bursts of punk-rock fuzz. Larry Boothroydâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frenetic bass was funk-tinged without crossing the line into the slap-happy cheesiness of other groups of that era. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say that Tim Solyan could have written the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;March to the beat of your own drummer.â&#x20AC;? He followed no rules, and we fansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we liked it that way. White Bread Blues was always the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular album, and this month marks the 20th-anniversary edition, released on Saint Rose Records. The extensive liner notes feature recollections by everyone from Steve Albini to Les Claypool, alongside color replicas of flyers from shows all over the Bay Area. The album itself comes on pristine, blue-marbled vinyl, and with a complete remastering of the original recordings, it has never sounded or looked better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The remastering really brings the production out. It originally sounded a little bit choked, but now it sounds more open,â&#x20AC;? says Spight by phone from his Berkeley home. The band had wanted to revive the out-of-print

record for a while, but it was at the urging of Gerry Stumbaugh, owner of Saint Rose Records, that the plan actually came to fruition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had these really pure motives about it,â&#x20AC;? Spight says, describing how Stumbaugh approached them as someone who had been influenced heavily by their sound. Plans are in place to reissue the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first album Voltage and Violets, as well as their second, Things I Hate to Admit. The latter might prove to be a more difficult endeavor, since the master tapes may have been lost to historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; possibly ending up in a dumpster after the Los Angeles pressing plant used by Mordam closed downâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but Spight is optimistic that the record will find its way into the light. While the new and improved sound of the album is impressive, what truly stands out on rediscovering White Bread Blues is the prescience of the politically charged lyrics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Supermarket Nitemareâ&#x20AC;? castigates the fake foods lining grocery store aisles, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ungowaâ&#x20AC;? rails against â&#x20AC;&#x153;billboard mazesâ&#x20AC;? and the cluelessness of people caught up in a world mediated by television. Spight says that he made a conscious choice to write about issues that would remain relevant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always kind of amazed at how timely certain things remain,â&#x20AC;? Spight says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhat by design. I realized early on, in tackling political subject matter, that the album was going to be out for a long time.â&#x20AC;? While some might find it sad that, if anything, the world has gotten more apathetic and topsy-turvy since the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original release, and that while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bloated Housewivesâ&#x20AC;? may not, as the song proclaims, rule the world anymoreâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the desperate and real ones doâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Spight doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily see it this way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some things improve, and other things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to keep talking about politics in lyrics and put it out there. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be screaming about it if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t depressing, but you can be depressed about it or you can do something about it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing about getting olderâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel as powerless about those things. I know people can make a difference. Fundamentally, human nature doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. But you can draw attention to it when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selfish.â&#x20AC;? Aside from being a delight for fans of Victims Family, the reissue inspired the band to reunite after a hiatus. While they are playing a few shows (including a short European tour), Solyanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule as a drum tech for Sheryl Crow and the Beastie Boys, Spightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work with Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine and Boothroydâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to the band Triclops! does not allow for a return to the intensive touring and recording schedule of previous Victims Family iterations. While plans are in store for new material, right now their philosophy is just â&#x20AC;&#x153;to see what happens.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gets weird when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a band for a long time. By the time we got to the point where Victims Family was all we did, we were so burned out that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand it anymore,â&#x20AC;? Spight says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a kind of challenge to stay in touch with how passionate we feel about the music that we play and all the things that you get into a band for. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to get back to a point of remembering why we got into it and what we love about it.â&#x20AC;? The 20th Anniversary Edition of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;White Bread Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is available at www.saintroserecords.com.

Moore, 90, publishes his first poetry collection s the modernist Anglo-American poet T. S. Eliot noted in his shape-shifting poem The Waste Land, â&#x20AC;&#x153;April is the cruelest month.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also National Poetry Month, and has been since 1996. Poetry, of course, knows no national boundaries, and can be found everywhere in the world, but few places in the world are more devoted to the art than Northern California. Sometimes it seems that everyone here is a poet, or wants to be one, and that everyone is writing the Great American Poem. Moreover, almost every county and every self-respecting city and burg has a poet laureate. Perhaps the most noteworthy poet to read this month is Richard O. Moore, who just turned 90, and whose first book of poems, Writing the Silences ($19.95), has just been published by the University of California Press. Born in Ohio, Moore has spent almost all of his life in Northern California. For most of his life, Moore never cared about publishing his work. If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for poet Brenda Hillman, who edited Writing the Silences with the assistance of Paul Ebenkamp, the volume would not exist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The original manuscript of my poems was about 200 pages,â&#x20AC;? Moore says at his tiny apartment in Mill Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We edited it down to about half the size. Brenda made the book possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A poem should call for the kind of scrutiny that a lawyer would give to a complex legal brief,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want readers and listeners to take my poetry seriously.â&#x20AC;? Brenda Hillman certainly did. So does her husband Robert Hass, the former U.S. poet laureate, who was persuaded to become a poet in part by Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classy TV documentaries about American poets. Richard Moore reads from Writing the Silences on Saturday April 17, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Boulevard, Corte Madera. Poets Raphael Block, Fred Ostrander and Barbara Ras join him. 2pm. Free. 415.927.0960. Jonah Raskin

profile Based in the beautiful North Bay wine country, the Bohemian is steeped in tradition but is by no means stodgy. Its name pays homage to the literary movement that figured prominently in cultural development north of the Golden Gate in the years following the California gold rush. The journalists, poets and novelists loosely identified as bohemians preferred art, literature and political discourse to the aggressive material culture of their day. Successor movements with bohemian flavorenvironmentalism, the Beats and hippies, the sexual revolution, California cuisine and cyberculture—were similarly catalyzed by their synergy with this important area. Bohemian readers like to stay current with the area's culinary and wine culture, keep tabs on the music and art scenes and gain perspective on the changes transforming the area. No one embodies the North Bay spirit better than the Bohemian, a favorite of smart, independentminded readers for more than three decades.

National Awards given by the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies Arcadia 2009 Special Section Arcadia 2008 Special Section Best of the North Bay 2007 Special Section Food Writing 2006, 2007, 2008 Music Criticism 2004, 2005

In 2009, North Bay Bohemian editor Gretchen Giles was chosen to join 11 other U.S. journalists in the first International Arts Journalism Institute in the Visual Arts sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. State Department, held at American University in Washington, D.C.
