On Saturday afternoon, the campus was in a state of nervous anticipationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of what, no one was sure. Rumors circulated that there was going to be another gathering that evening. Rumor became reality. As we stood on the commons, waiting for something to happen, someone near me, looking over at the ROTC building, got the idea to burn it down. That sounded like fun. There was a motorcycle parked nearby, and a couple of us thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gee, you know, we could siphon some gas out of the tank and splatter it all over the building.â&#x20AC;? There was a dumpster next to the ROTC building. Someone else thought we could get the trash in it going with a rag soaked in gasoline from the motorcycle, and then push it into the building to see if that would do the job. I had not been what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call a radicalized student, but in less than 24 hours I was swept up in the political current, concocting the burning of buildings. While we were thinking, others were acting, and the fire department was called out. The crowd tried hard to cut the fire hose they had placed on the field next to the ROTC building. It was pretty tough stuff, but we pulled off some slashes. There was a photographer present. By the look of his camera, he was a professional. He was trying to take pictures of what we were doing when some of the students struggled with him for the camera, got him to the ground, and took it. An older woman saw this and cried out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keep it calm. Please, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keep it calm.â&#x20AC;? I was moved by the pain in her face. I had never experienced such violence before, but it seemed maybe she had. A line of people, the length of the field, held onto the fire hose, trying to keep it from the firefighters as we continued trying to cut it. It was heavy and we were clumsy, so our efforts were ineffectual. The crowd, by now a mob, decided to march downtown, and by â&#x20AC;&#x153;decidedâ&#x20AC;? I mean that they followed whoever had the loudest voice and the most aggressive manner. A fellow I knew, who had literally starved himself to get out of the draft, was leading the crowd downtown, creating a path of destruction as he went. Some looted parking meters. Others threatened cars that were in the wrong place at the wrong time. One, with a family inside, was close enough for me to catch the momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye. She hurriedly locked her door and had her children do the same. The fear on her face startled me. That night I returned to campus and saw that the ROTC building was now in full blaze. Somehow, somebody had had

success in the effort. For several hours, everyone there stared, mesmerized by the fire. When it was nothing more than a pile of burnt rubble, we were herded back to the dorms. A group of us got caught in The Pit, the central area of one of the dorm complexes. Jammed together and fearful of more of the tear gas that had been directed our way that afternoon, we could have succumbed to paranoia. Instead, guitars and drums appeared and we partied. All night long helicopters flew by. They were loud, and their searchlights in the dorm windows kept us awake. We thought we were under siege, but it seemed more like a siege in a toy war. Cowboys and Indiansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this is how we spoke of it.

All of a sudden we were running again, presumably just ahead of the next barrage of gas vapors. But then I heard pinging and something whoosh by my head. I looked to my left and saw a car window shatter. Sunday morning a convoy of trucks and army tanksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tanks!â&#x20AC;&#x201D;moved slowly down the main street of Kent. Now we were calling it the Boy Scout Jamboree, but it was nothing of the sort. It was the National Guard, our citizen soldiers, the ones we call to action during national emergencies. But we were just Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kids. How could this be a national emergency? In fact, while we waited outside of Kent Hall to hear the outcome of the negotiations taking place that afternoon, some of us girls flirted with the Guardsmen. They were from Akron, only 10 miles from Kent. One of them was cute. As I put flowers in the muzzle of his 3

n the evening, a group of us conducted a sit-in at an intersection near the entrance to campus. For what seemed like hours, we waited for an official who, we had been told, would come and talk to us. Then I noticed Guardsmen at the back edges of the crowd, quietly surrounding us. Others noticed it, too. Mayhem again. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d run so much over the weekend that the feeling of being chased became a feeling of being hunted. At one point, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d actually stampeded a Cyclone fence down because it blocked the only way out. Unarmed, the thought of fighting never arose. A rally had been scheduled for Monday, and despite an injunction, it took place. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we expected to come out of it or how we were planning to resolve the situation. I went down to the commons when all of a sudden we were running again, presumably just ahead of the next barrage of gas vapors. But then I heard pinging and something whoosh by my head. I looked to my left and saw a car window shatter. I looked to my right and saw a student fall. I heard someone yell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shooting! Get down!â&#x20AC;? I felt something hit my leg. I dove under a bush. Panic was in the air. Though everyone was crying and calling out to their friends, a strange silence had settled on the whole area. It was then that I wanted to shoot whoever was behind me because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the National Guard was, where Nixon was, where my country was, and I hated them. I wanted to kill and I knew

I could. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had a gun in my hand, I would have been shooting blindly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m certain of it, and that moment stands by itself, separate from all else. Turning, I stared in the direction of the onslaught, but the only thing I could see was the movie screen of my mind. On it was footage of me in third or fourth grade, standing with all of my classmates, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. But now, suddenly, I had been stripped of everything, of all those beliefs that had protected me. I watched one of the four die. Some people were stooping over her. A guy wiped out her mouth, flinging pink and white matter from his hand. Maybe she had vomited, or maybe it was flesh and guts, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure. He tried to give her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. I watched, but it was not a person I was watching. It was a biological organism. It was a body straining hard to breathe, or maybe that was the futile breaths of her rescuer, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure. He lifted his head and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone.â&#x20AC;? My first thought was that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d fainted. Then I understood she was dead. In a daze, I also watched as a friend of mine, Scott, was taken away on a stretcher. He had been shot in the neck. Those of us left behind after the ambulances drove off tried to have some kind of civil discussion about what to do next, but it was no use. We disbanded. A bulletin went out over a loudspeaker telling everyone to leave. We were to take only as many belongings as we could carry and go home. No one wanted to get shot at again, so orders were peacefully 3!

followed. Cars were packed. My friend Wendy and I got a ride together. Once we got out of town, we hitchhiked the rest of the way to our parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes in New Jersey. That was it for the year at Kent. Campus closed. Exams were sent through the mail.

B

y 1998 I had become a respectable wife, mother, and small business owner. That year my son Austin and I took a road trip across the country, which included a visit to Kent so that I could see the May 4 Memorial and he could see the place so significant in his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. It had been almost 30 years since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been there, and at first nothing looked the same. Then, as my mind adjusted, I began to recognize many of my old haunts. After a nostalgic lunch at Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diner, where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d worked the graveyard shift, we drove up to campus. I had been a part of what happened there, yet I felt a stranger to its memorial. Uncertain of the way, I led my son tentatively along the path leading to the plaza. There were granite tributes to the dead here in Ohio, and daffodils had been planted in remembrance of those lost in Vietnam, one for each of the fallen. The unyielding rock, the yellow blossoms that came to life each springâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; these symbols, together here, linked the student and the soldier in the ideals of their youth. I caught sight of some pamphlets and took one. It included a recounting of the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events so similar to my own recollection that I felt Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been consulted on its writing. Suddenly, studying the pamphletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s map of the site, I did not feel so alone in my pilgrimage. As I arrived at the spot where I stood when the shooting stopped, I looked at the mapâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13 circled letters, A through M, denoting the locations where the nine wounded and four dead had fallen. How close I had been! Now, at the 40-year mark, am I the only one who wonders if black squirrels romp among the 58,175 daffodils on a hill in Kent, Ohio? Can my memories be woven with othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into a cohesive story of innocence, rage, sorrow, and healing? Or are they a heart-shaped balloon, cut loose, drifting, lifting, floating higher and higher into the atmosphere? Someone sees it. She points. The day goes on.

Market Expansion

&

Farmers markets arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just growing in Santa Cruz. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proliferating across the nation and subtly changing the economy wherever theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re found. 0G16@7AB7</E/B3@A>6=B=A0G1C@B7A1/@B73@

AST WEDNESDAY, regulars of the Santa Cruz Downtown Farmers Market wandered into a dazzling feast of new sights and smells. On tree-shaded aisles occupied the previous week by parked cars, the aromas of rotisserie chicken and hot pizza mingled while shave-ice vendors hawked the flavors of the tropics. Next to an array of colorful dishware by master ceramicist Mattie Leeds, the knife sharpener in his thick apron joked with visitors. The strains of bluegrass by Harmony Grits drifted off the new stage, background to the hiss of the Lulu Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s espresso machine and the chatter at information booths and the fishmongerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. And anchoring it all, of course, were three aisles of farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers, the bustling heart of the market. Last week the Santa Cruz Downtown Farmers Market gave itself a 20th birthday gift by launching a longawaited expansion on Earth Day. Now stretching from

Lincoln Street to Cathcart, the vibrant Wednesday afternoon destination for local and regionally harvested organic products has been enlarged by 20 purveyors, live music, valet services for bicycles and for retrieval of purchases, an arts and crafts section and an organic food court. The new section of the market fills the parking lot at Cathcart and Cedar behind the University Town Center and hosts informational booths representing nonprofits such as Slow Food, Seafood Watch, Save our Shores, LifeLab and Ecology Action, to name just a few. And yes, there are expanded restroom facilities and just plain more space in which to move around, hang out and do some serious shopping. For the past nine years Nesh Dhillon has been operations manager for the Santa Cruz Certified Farmers Markets, a job for which he admits that â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep breathing skillsâ&#x20AC;? are a prime requirement. He says the new expansion has been building for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying

to have a diverse shopping experience for the consumer,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so we have new arts and crafts booths, soap vendors, a permanent massage booth and artisan booths selling prepared food like sauerkraut and jams.â&#x20AC;? Two or three new farmstands will also be integrated into the mix, Dhillon says, adding variety to the fruits and vegetables. For would-be locavores, good news comes in the form of several regional producers who are bringing in items not available within our immediate foodshed. Old Creek Ranch, based in Cayucos (near San Luis Obispo), will bring in pasture-raised, hormone-free beef, lamb, goat and pork, as well as citrus fruits and avocados. Massa Organics, based in the Chico area, will offer certified organic brown rice and almonds. And on the prepared foods front, RoliRotiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thomas Odermatt, a third-generation butcher/ chef headquartered in the Bay Area, will be roasting rotisserie chickens on-site and selling them by the half and by the whole along with roasted potatoes. ¨ %

Growing Trend Across the nation, farmers markets have blossomed in every conceivable locale, from Memphis, Tenn. (in 2007 named the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most obese city) to Fairbanks, Alaska (one of its northernmost). These days, markets have star power on their side. Not only does every single chef on the Food Channel make a point of establishing his or her street cred with footage of delighted strolls through farmers markets, but political animals are getting in on the act as well. In September, First Lady Michelle Obama helped push through permits for a farmers market just in front of the White House lawn, smack in the middle of the federal district. The rapid proliferation of farmers markets is staggering. The USDA estimates that in 1994 there were approximately 1,750 farmers markets nationwide. Today there are more than 5,000. That 300 percent increase

means that direct marketing of freshly harvested farm products is not only wildly popular, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming an important source of income for small farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rarely enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most farmers I know are doing more than just farmers markets,â&#x20AC;? says Gail Feenstra, a food systems analyst at UC-Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at other marketing venues that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include quite as much investment in terms of time and gas and so on. But farmers markets continue to grow ,and I think they probably will for a while because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so much demand out there for local food,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way more than it used to be even five years ago.â&#x20AC;? In this area, says Dhillon, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most farmers sell through CSAs, direct to restaurants and at farmers markets, and obviously most profits are made at farmers markets.â&#x20AC;? For that opportunity, market members pay an annual fee. Dhillon says it varies, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually about $130 per year, plus ¨ '

After all, he contends, the market costs the downtown in fees to the city, in parking attendant fees and in taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a free ride,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I, for one, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it should be.â&#x20AC;?

Size Matters Naturally, California was on the cusp of the movement. Markets started popping up around the state 30 years ago. In 1990, Santa Cruz joined the party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we were really on the forefront,â&#x20AC;? says Dhillon. Of the five markets in the SCCFM family, which includes the Westside, Live Oak, Scotts Valley and Felton markets, the Downtown Market is the eldest sibling. Now with 70 vendors, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comparable in size to the two largest markets on the Monterey Bay, the 82member Monterey Farmers Market and the 80-vendor Aptos Farmers Market held Sundays at Cabrillo. Dhillon credits two dynamicsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; pressure from the farming community (Exhibit A being the long waiting list of farms trying to get into the market) and consumers feeling crowdedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for creating last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth spurt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I gotta say,â&#x20AC;? he chuckles, â&#x20AC;&#x153;everybody has been so supportiveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the city, the Chamber of Commerce, the business community, the City Council.â&#x20AC;? Making the expansion all the easier was the fact that the city was already acclimated to having the Wednesday market here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were used to having traffic and parking issues,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so it was a logical move to simply expand and add the next parking lot.â&#x20AC;? Rebecca King of Garden Variety Cheeses, for whom farmers markets are the primary sales outlet, looks forward to having a bigger booth for her handmade sheep cheeses and lamb sausage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about the larger marketâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more customers and more places to sit and eat,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is more appealing to those who are really here to shop.â&#x20AC;? Live Earth Farm owner Tom Broz agrees that the expansion â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a great thing just waiting to happen. The farmers market is really central to Santa Cruz,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we have a large CSA, the farmers market is a great way to bring our food direct to the consumer.â&#x20AC;? For his part, Dhillon is thrilled with the blend of sensory experiences available at the up-sized venue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will finally be a music series, like at the Westside market,â&#x20AC;? he points out. Arts and crafts booths will appear courtesy a pilot arrangement with the Tannery

Arts Center (it will be evaluated at the end of the year). As far as the exuberant hippie fringeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which on the first day of the new farmers market took up position at the parking lot behind Petroglyph, across from Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Dhillon remains philosophical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The patchouli drummers just go with the Santa Cruz scene,â&#x20AC;? he says. As for the future? â&#x20AC;&#x153;To launch into the very top level of national markets, we need to launch into food education,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve begun working with Ecology Action and Slow Food Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just part of a whole wave of exciting events planned for downtown.â&#x20AC;? At its most basic, though, the farmers market is a vibrant part of the local community, and one that defies the usual trends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It speaks volumes that in times where most things are contracting, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually expanding,â&#x20AC;? says Dhillon, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of the success of the farmers markets. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to do this.â&#x20AC;?

LIVE OIL, jams, winesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; we do the whole thing,â&#x20AC;? says Steve Gliessman, proprietor of Condorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hope wines. Having sold his wines at the Westside farmers market for several years, Gliessman says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent fit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can tell our story directly to the consumer, what it means to us as a family,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a relationship, not just a product. People want to know where their food comes from, and here they can get the in-person story.â&#x20AC;? Gliessman, founding director of UCSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agroecology program, believes other winemakers will undoubtedly want to sell their wines at farmers markets too.

What about not being able to taste the wine, I ask? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that the growers themselves be there,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can tell the whole story from field to bottle, and we can talk about the importance of growing organically.â&#x20AC;? Greg Nolten has been selling wines at the Felton farmers market for the past five years, gaining additional visibility for his Zayante Vineyards brand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a lot of tourists in the summer,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and locals see that we grow our own grapesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and they like that.â&#x20AC;? After years of doing the Felton market, Nolten says he feels â&#x20AC;&#x153;a real part of the community.â&#x20AC;&#x153; Winemaker Richard Alfaro, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in talks with Dhillon about plans ¨

for a farmers market wine booth, agrees that the farmers markets are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a great thing for local winegrowers. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely planning on participating in the downtown market,â&#x20AC;? he says. He admits, however, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bummer we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give samples of the wine. In other states they have started allowing samplesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope for the future.â&#x20AC;? Limited hope, as it turns out. In Los Angeles, the main farmers market is served by adjacent beer and wine bars with their own licenses. Last September the state of Maryland allowed the first winery to participate in a farmers market and offer tastes. The process is cumbersome, however, and slow to gain legislative approval. In Washington State a recent initiative came before the legislature to allow a pilot program for winetasting at farmers markets. A target number of wineries would be able to offer limited tastings at markets during the summer months under strict controls, such as size

of samples, amount per customer and a requirement that food be present at the tasting table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of small family-run wineries now in the state, and we wanted to broaden the business setting in which we can operate,â&#x20AC;? says winemaker Marty Clubb, president of the Washington Wine Institute, the wine industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lobbying group in Olympia. Unfortunately the initiative did not get to a vote during the most recent session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was support for the initiative, Clubb tells Santa Cruz Weekly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but there were big budget battles ahead of our bill, and they took precedence. So our initiative fell off the table.â&#x20AC;? Clubb will resubmit the initiative during the next legislative session at the start of 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this will happen,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we have to wait until the next go-round.â&#x20AC;? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to California following Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead and pouring on the flavor at the market. 0

@=;/<13E7B62/<13 AERIAL COLLECTIVEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S stunning spectacle of Cirque du Soleilâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style airborne acrobatics is the first spark to ignite a weeklong explosion of dance throughout downtown Santa Cruz. During Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kickoff event, traffic will be diverted from Pacific Avenue to allow room for three stages and more than a dozen groups dancing 15-minute sets. The sparks will literally fly around 8:30pm in a grand finale of the fire dancers of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nocturnal Sunshine and Friendsâ&#x20AC;? and the glow-inthe-dark hula hoopers of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hoopalights.â&#x20AC;? As part of Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third year celebrating National Dance Week, 15 groups will be spontaneously erupting into dance on sidewalks, streets and other public places as part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dance in Unlikely Placesâ&#x20AC;? program. Keep an eye out for spurts of samba and live drummers from groups like the 30-strong â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dance of Brazilâ&#x20AC;? or impromptu flourishes of ballet by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ballet Wassa Wassa.â&#x20AC;? The contagious dance frenzy is shared with the community in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of the Studio Into the Streetsâ&#x20AC;? program, where pedestrians can dance up a storm with instruction by local dance teachers. Studios in Santa Cruz and across the country will also be opening their doors all week to offer free classes to the public. The last hurrah will blend performance art with aesthetically compatible visual art when National Dance Week groups in Santa Cruz join forces with the First Friday Art Tour on May 7. (Maria Grusauskas) SANTA CRUZ DANCE WEEK starts Thursday, April 29, at 5:15pm at the wall at Lulu Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 1545 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz; three stages between Locust and Water streets host Dancing in the Streets through 9pm. Events continue through Friday, May 7, at various venues around town. For schedule and event locations go to www.downtownsantacruz.com/dance/ndw.htm.

97<2=40:C35@/AA MAY IS BLUEGRASS MONTHâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a time when musicians, record companies and fans all do their part to honor one of the most iconic styles of American music. Established in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s to promote awareness of bluegrass music, it now also serves to kick off bluegrass-related festivities that continue throughout summertime, and is observed the world over by a dedicated community of enthusiasts. The Santa Cruz Bluegrass Fair was conceived as a way to represent Bluegrass Month on a local level, says Mike McKinley, the fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coordinator for the past 24 years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened each year since 1987, which, according to him, makes it the longest-running celebration of Bluegrass Month in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, kids, in the world. The fair is always open to new ideas, and in the past has tried things like incorporating a farmers market. This year there will be food, crafts, raffles and prizes. Of course, there will also be a great lineup of bands like Mountain Drive, the Family Hogwash and longtime participants Harmony Grits. Attendees can expect a great deal of musical variety, from the progressive and jammy sounds of the Down Beets to the more old-timey harmonies of Faux Renwah. (Sean Conwell)

THE SANTA CRUZ BLUEGRASS FAIR takes place Saturday, May 1, noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm at the Duck Pond Stage in San Lorenzo Park, 137 Dakota St., Santa Cruz. Free. (www.scbs.org; 831.459.0908)

Selick, with its tiny locked chambers and prowling sardonic cat, still feels like magic. Tim Burtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alice in Wonderland is more of a fashion show and a forced march. Screenwriter Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast) is sensibly trying to do a Wicked on the famous tale, complete with rivalry between witchy queens: the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the ghostly yet sugary White Queen (Anne Hathaway). The now 19-year-old Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is meant to quest for good in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Underland,â&#x20AC;? a place she misremembered as Wonderland. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a

helpless Burton fan, but the colors here arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t state of the art, and compared to Coralineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solitude and thoughtfulness the finale turns out to be familiar dragon slaying; ultimately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just Alice who has been here before. (RvB) B630/19C>>:/<

110 min.) Sam Worthingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Perseus saves Argos from a large and angry Kraken. A synthespian made completely out of Black Angus beef, Sam Worthington demonstrates his ability to suck every touch of humor in a movie, so that no matter how ridiculous things get no one laughs during his scenes. He passed on the risible coiffures endemic in director Louis Leterrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision of the ancient world, the land of a thousand fright wigs. Hairiest of them all is Liam Neesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zeus, in shiny tinfoil armor last seen in Excaliburâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;glittering 3-D eyesore like a f licker postcard. This glowing apparition stares down his evil brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes): nothing says â&#x20AC;&#x153;tensionâ&#x20AC;? like two furry, heavily mascaraed men giving each other the eye. Your kid will agree that any movie with Medusa in it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a total loss. Her backstory is told by Perseusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guardian angel Io (Gemma Arterton); Arterton provides not only the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too-rare girly-action, but Clashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one nod to the pathos of Ovid. Some respite by Mads Mikkelsen and Jason Flemyng. Bargainmatinee filler, heavily Cecil B. Demillized to make it all about the chastisement of a loving God on his impious people. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen more out of control paganism at a Unitarian potluck. (RvB) 2/B3<756B (PG13; 88 min.) Tina Fey, queen of quirk, teams up with Steve

(Unrated; 158 min.) Stieg Larssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book is the hottest thing going in mysteries right now, and thankfully, director Niels Arden Oplev and screenwriters Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg recognized that more important than any of the hype swirling around the book is the protagonist at its center, Lisbeth Salander. She is the girl with the dragon tattoo, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maybe the best fictional character to come around yet this century. Swedish actress Noomi Rapace is absolutely incredible in her ability to bring Lisbeth to life. She is a force of nature, pure and simple. Lisbeth is hired to dig up dirt on Mikael (Michael Nyqvist) but ends up helping him investigate the disappearance many years ago of Harriet, heiress to a creepy, feuding family

of millionaires. Though it may use the U.S. title, the movie doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy away from the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unrelenting critique of the violence that society allows men to perpetuate against women, and though the scenes with certain unsavory characters may have been cut down in number, they are still surprisingly graphic. Luckily, Lisbeth is womankindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate revenge fantasy come trueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sooner or later, her boots are gonna walk all over absolutely everyone. (SP) 6=BBC0B7;3 ;/167<3 (R; 100

min.) Sublime, but not dainty. Due to a wormhole, observed by a hot tub repairman or a Time Lord or something (Chevy Chase), three idiots (Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and the ever soulful John Cusack) are transported back to their happier past at a ski resort in 1986. Accidentally transported with them is 24-year-old Jacob (the hilarious Clark Duke), a depressed middle-aged-man-intraining whose life may depend on the events of the night to come. Certainly the funniest and grimiest film since The Hangover, but Hot Tub Time Machineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editing is ruthless, almost to the point of resembling a comingattractions reel. Rather than looking like a frenzied mess, however, it is more like there was some brilliant four-hour version that was cut down to a ragged but right shape. Director Steve Pink scripted High Fidelity; Cusack and Corddry do things here that you will still be laughing about 10 years from now: examples being Corddryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violent unplugging of himself from a hospital bed or Cusackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monologue about the day life went wrong for him, a tale as funny as the story in Gremlins about the Santa who ruined Christmas. (RvB) B638=<3A3A (R; 96 min.) A great idea, but it has no real twists or

serious rage in it, and it strains to make the 90-minute mark. David Duchovnyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as ever, wistful, moony and vaguely hornyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is the father of a fake nuclear family dropped into an exclusive yet bland community. There, the only life that goes on takes place around the spa and the golf course. They stealthmarket products to the neighbors, and the locals are left to struggle to pay to â&#x20AC;&#x153;keep up with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joneses.â&#x20AC;? Cast against type, Gary Cole is the tragic sucker next door, married to a venal Mary K.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;style saleswoman; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played by the muchmissed Glenn Headly, who does all the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedic heavy lifting. The product placement director on The Joneses got a serious workout, too, so the cargo-stroking is nonstop even while the film seeks to criticize this epic highend consumerism. Another problem is Demi Moore, once a concrete kitten, now a polyethylene cougar. Watching the emotions inch across her beautifully toned and lifeless face, one wishes they could have reunited Duchovny with Gillian Anderson for a different sort of team-up. Director Derrick Borte makes this luxury community out of the richest parts of suburban Atlanta and Spokane; the pale light and depressing ostentation add to the general bad mood induced by this indie. (RvB) 9719/AA (R; 117

min.) Dave, a homebrewed costumed vigilante (Aaron Johnson), meets up with real professionals in the field: a Batman and Robinâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;esque father-and-daughter team (Nicolas Cage, and the excellent Chloe Moretz, who was the wise little girl in (500) Days of Summer). Entertaining in parts, but director Matthew Vaughn has no feeling for the romance and mystery and vigilante lore: the movie has a

nasty fan-boy quality, a hermetic focus that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything beyond the purpose of beating bad guys bloody. Cage carries the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambiguity deftlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough of a serious comic book reader that he knows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dreadful thing when a father bends his child to revenge. Bloody-minded little girls (thank heaven for them) may like Moritz. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuts to call Kick-Ass the next Watchmen. The slamming violence and the dullard noms de guerre these superheroes pick for themselves show a comic-book tradition at the end of a line. (RvB) :/;7AA7=< (R; 125 min.) Che (Benjamin Bratt) is an S.F. Muni conductor, a hobby mechanic and an excon, single-parenting his son, Jesse ( Jeremy Ray Valdez). What he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know is that Jesse has a secret lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a boyfriend who lives in St. Francis Wood. Cheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outright rage at his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexuality is tempered by the attentions of his lovely new neighbor Lena (Erika Alexander). Any positive representation of Aztlan has to be applauded; the scenes of highly polished lowriders gliding

through the Mission make their own statement of beauty and pride. Bratt is the definition of moviestar gravity: a man doing nothing but thinking about stuff and making it look interesting. The film, then, is a celebration of San Francisco. Problem is, San Francisco may be San Francisco, but it is still a city. So some hard-to-credit idealization mixes uneasily with real, street-level violence. (And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to make a Sundance movie, another to openly filch a scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.) La Mission is a kind of overexemplified view of San Francisco as a city of healing and refuge: a vision of a place where everyone is wounded, and almost everyone heals each other. (RvB) B63:=A3@A (PG-13; 98 min.) A CIA covert ops team is betrayed and left for dead in the Bolivian jungle, then has to battle an unseen enemy. Zoe Saldana, Jason Patric, Idris Elba. =13/<A(G; 100 min.) The dearth of narrative thrust and useful informational tidbits are a downsideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the creatures swimming by are sometimes

identified, sometimes not. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re arranged by cuteness, color and shape rather than by districts of the ocean, as in the sturdy zonal structure of Earth. Bruno Coulais, the rising composer whose work was key to the success of The Secret of Kells and Coraline, is adept with musical scoring: the organ is never too heavy and the harp is never too light. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to miss most of the text; because this is Disney, the anthropomorphic angle is heavy; narrator Pierce Brosnan salutes the ancient wisdom of a sheepshead wrasse, the smoochiness of a walrus and the smiling face of our friend the Great White Shark. Oceansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cuteness is, you know, for the kids; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moments to clutch like a blanket when seeing the bottomless appetites underwater: a horrorsequence of a school of sardines under Scud attack by plummeting cormorants, frigate birds picking off a beachful of baby tortoises as if they were popcorn and a vicious crab/langouste bout thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as bad as any streetfight. (RvB) B63A31@3B=4 93::A (Unrated;

80 min.) Short but

ravishing Irish cartoon about their national treasure, the Book of Kells, an 1,300year-old illuminated manuscript. Young Brendan (voiced by Evan McGuire) is a monk at his uncleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abbey at Kells in ninthcentury Meath. The merciless Viking raiders approach, but Brendan is more interested in the arrival of a fellow artist at the monastery: the aged brother Aidan (Mick Lally), who carries with him the last treasure from his island of Iona: the book which later will be known as the Book of Kells. When Aidan sends the boy out into the wolf-haunted forest to seek pigments, the boy encounters a fairy named Aisling (Christen Mooney). Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stressed here is art as the hope of civilization, representing something more than life.The love of nature also radiates from this movie; directors Tomm Moore, Nora Twomey and the rest of the artists at Cartoon Saloon have indeed made something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful yet never airy-fairy.

Astrology Free Will

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of April 28 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a recipe for salsa published recently, one of the ingredients was misstated, due to an error,â&#x20AC;? said an apology run by a local newspaper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The correct ingredient is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;2 tsp. of cilantroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; instead of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;2 tsp. of cement.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? This is an example of the kind of miscue you should be alert for in your own life during the coming week, Aries. As long as you pay close attention and spot the tiny booboos as they arise, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up dipping your chips into a gritty, gravely mess. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): A little knowledge can be dangerous. I constantly meet people who have boxed themselves into tight spots by misusing their smattering of astrological information. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better example of this than the superstition about Mercury retrograde, which is supposedly a bad time to begin anything new. During one such period last year, an acquaintance of mine decided to delay accepting a dream job offer as editor of a magazine. By the time Mercury returned to normal, the magazine had hired another applicant. I wish Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have known, because I would have told her what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you: Some of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest, most enduring Fortune 500 companies began when Mercury was retrograde, including Disney, Goodyear, and Boeing. The moral of the story: Of all the signs of the zodiac, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important that you Tauruses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about launching new projects during the current Mercury retrograde.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): Would you really prefer it if you had no problems? Do you imagine youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d enjoy life more if everything was pure fun and smoothly easy? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an astrological perspective: People who have an over-abundance of positive aspects in their natal horoscopes often turn out to be lucky but lazy bums who never accomplish much. So I say, be thankful for the complications that are visiting you. I bet they will make a man out of you if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a woman, or a woman out of you if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a man. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re white, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help you get blacker, and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re black, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make you whiter. Catch my drift? As you do your best to solve the knotty riddle, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become better balanced and more versatile than folks who are rarely challenged.

1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important rule for you in the coming week: Keep your eyes fixed on a vision of your shining destiny. If you do, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be unf lappable, indefatigable, and irrepressible. Your luck will be so crazy good itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be almost spooky. Noble deeds you did in the past will finally bring the rewards you deserve. Allies will conspire to assist you, sometimes in ways you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have predicted. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not exaggerating, Cancerian. If you stay focused on the highest prize, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll live a charmed life.

Community Support for Adobe Animal Hospital Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital thanks Adobe Animal Hospital for your support of our community for so many years, and for being a great neighbor to our practice. We wish you all well in your future endeavors. In order to help support the Adobe patient community in this time of need, for the next 3 months* SCVH will offer a free wellness (annual) exam for former Adobe patients. In this way we hope to give these pets the care they need and deserve.

:3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): In 1990, my rock band World Entertainment War played at a San Francisco nightclub on the same bill as the Beatnigs, an assemblage fronted by Michael Franti. Their avantgarde industrial music featured band members rhythmically hitting a steel bar with a power saw and slapping a long chain against a piece of sheet metal hanging from the back wall. Fast-forward to 2009, when Frantiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest band Spearhead released a catchy romantic pop ditty titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Say Hey (I Love You),â&#x20AC;? which reached number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. I predict a comparable development for you in the next six months, Leo: moving from a state of raw, dark, obscure power to a state of bright, refined, accessible power. D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): Mangosteens and rambutans are exotic fruits that grow in faraway places. The mangosteen is creamy and purple, with a peachy citrus taste, while the rambutan is like a big hairy red grape. This is a perfect moment, astrologically speaking, to invite them into your mouth. Likewise, the time is right for you to consider welcoming other colorful, striking, and foreign elements into your life. So maybe consider making friends with a Paraguayan acrobat. Sing Vietnamese folk songs. Read the memoirs of an Iranian exile. Exchange conspiracy theories with an Icelandic fairy. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): A reader named Emory

*Offer extends to former patients of Adobe Animal Hospital and is good through 5/31/2010.

proposes that we add a new meme to the cultural lexicon: interpersonal intellectual orgasm. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how he describes it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It happens when your conversation with another person becomes so intense that nothing else matters except the dialog youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re creating together.

The two of you are so in-tune, so intellectually bonded, that the sensation is almost like making love. For that time, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like that person is in you and you are in that person; you are one because you understand each other so completely.â&#x20AC;? I bring this to your attention, Libra, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a phase of your astrological cycle when the interpersonal intellectual orgasm is far more likely than usual to occur.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Unlike people who cheat on their mates, polyamorists carry on two or more intimate relationships but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lie about it. Their lovers know about each other and have agreed to the arrangement. I applaud those who have the inclination to pull off this tricky work, even though I personally couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t manage it. Handling just a single intense bond takes improbable amounts of my ingenuity. If I were trying to weave my fate together with more than one partner, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any energy left over to write these horoscopes or do anything else. How about you, Scorpio? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a phase when splitting your attention might be tempting, not just in regards to your love life but in other areas, too. Whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing to do, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I do know: You can either go deeper or wider, but not both.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never bear more than one trouble at a time,â&#x20AC;? wrote author and clergyman Edward Everett Hale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people bear three kindsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all they have had, all they have now, and all they expect to have.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good advice for you, Sagittarius. Please just stick to the trouble you have, and drop the other two kinds. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to fill up your beautiful head with extra torment. Besides, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re much more likely to wrestle the current trouble into submission if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not weighted down by unnecessary extras. 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): What excites you? What makes you itch with a longing to be surprised? What fills you to the brim with curiosity and an agitated sense of wonder? You may not know even half of what you could potentially realize about these matters. Have you ever sat down and taken a formal inventory? Have you ever dedicated yourself to figuring out all the things that would inspire you most? Do it sometime soon, please; attend to this glorious task. According to my reading of the omens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime time to do so.

/?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing Margaret Mitchell suffered a broken ankle back in 1925. She got so bored as she lay around the house recuperating that she started writing a book. Eventually it blossomed into the 423,000-word blockbuster Gone With the Wind, which sold 30 million copies and won her the Pulitzer Prize. Judging from your current astrological omens, Aquarius, I suspect that you too may soon be offered an opportunity disguised as a ho-hum problem. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): I was pleased when I discovered a website with a video of quirky songstress Cat Power singing David Bowieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Space Oddity.â&#x20AC;? I love her, I love Bowie, and I love the tune. And yet a wave of disappointment broke over me when I realized, 30 seconds into the performance, that it was actually a car commercial. I felt duped. Appalled. Outraged. Any pleasure Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gotten from the experience was ruined. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be like me, Pisces. You, too, may soon receive a blessing that has some minor annoyance. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overreact like me. Look past the blemish and enjoy the gift.
