;^fCTRWFaTRZ A minor domestic blip conjures visions of a less privileged future

By Marc Polonsky

8

was curled up on my couch one evening last month reading a book about peak oil and climate change and the inevitable lower-energy-consumption future that awaits us all. I got up to boil some water for tea and found that there was barely the thinnest imaginable thread of water running from my kitchen faucet. It would have taken 30 minutes or more to fill the tea kettle. I checked the bathroom sink and tub. Same thing. I called my neighbors to find out if the problem was widespread. Camp Meeker has had water issues in the past. But this time, I quickly learned, it was just my house. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shower that night. I like to go to bed feeling clean. Stress and disorientation woke me after five hours of fitful sleep. A few hours later, I started calling plumbers. One came over at 11, found a leak near my water meter and fixed it. By 2 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock, my water supply and pressures were back to normal. I felt relievedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a little spoiled. I had just read that having electric service is the equivalent of having 50 slaves furiously pedaling away on stationary bicycles to generate my energy all day and night. Water from the tap doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just f low out by force of gravity; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pumped from somewhere, with electrical energy. In the days before home electricity and modern plumbingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a fairly short time ago in human historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;people had to fetch water from wells and streams. Going outside of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home to obtain water was a fact of life, not a horrendous inconvenience. In fact, to have only to step outside oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door and fill water buckets from something as astonishing as a spigot would have been viewed as a miraculous, incomprehensible luxury. Yet I had found it intolerable. Why? It was not so unpleasant to get a little wet in the rain and then come in and dry off. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even worried that I might catch a cold. But I was afraid that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the time. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live with this disruption of my routine. Or so I felt. I was also aware, based on what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been reading, that things may get a lot more inconvenient for all of us, and even the days of water spigots may be (forgive the pun) tapped out in our lifetimes. What if limitless electricity and endless

conveniences go extinct? I have few practical skills. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve scarcely even weeded a garden, much less dug a well. In the back of my mind, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve long imagined that the down slope of peak energy consumption may look something like Maoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cultural Revolution, and that soft intellectual types like me will require â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-educationâ&#x20AC;? and be forced into some sort of land-based indentured servitude. I imagine wielding a shovel or a pick all day, and shivering in the cold at nightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;my just desserts for a life of privilege. So there it is: guilt. Another hidden ghost that makes going without running water for less than a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the thought of a power-down worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;intolerable. In his The Transition Handbook, author Rob Hopkins points out that humanity ascended the oil slope with enormous creativity and inventiveness. Cheap energy has made incredible things possible, from computers and air conditioning to stereo speakers and airplanes to bombs and leaf blowers. But these are products not just of fossil fuels, but also of human brilliance and innovation. So, Hopkins suggests, humanity now has an opportunity to apply commensurate creativity and brilliance on the down slope. Hopkins offers visions of locally based, interconnected economies, new forms of community life, interdependence, transportation, communication, conservation. Much of this has already been put into practice, in model transition towns around the world. But transitioning to a world of severely curtailed conveniences is not merely a practical matter. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering what types of spiritual, social and psychological technologies the human genius will need to cultivate as we slide down the energy slope. For example, on the day that my water was not running, if I had possessed the skillâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the â&#x20AC;&#x153;consciousness technology,â&#x20AC;? if you willâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to experience every moment as sacred and vibrant, I doubt Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have been so unsettled. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping that human technologies of the heart can calm and supersede our fears, our insularity, and even our desperation when it comes to that.

Having electric service is the equivalent of having 50 slaves furiously pedaling away on stationary bicycles to generate my energy all day and night.

3>F=78;;B8=24 '&" I enjoyed Ronald Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peak Everythingâ&#x20AC;? (May 5). But his conclusionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;while the production of physical supplies of resources may peak, there is no sign that human creativity is about to peakâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;is open to debate. In my 2007 book, coincidentally titled Peak Everything (which Bailey fails to mention), I cite a peer-reviewed study by physicist Jonathan Huebner showing that the rate of invention of significantly new and different technologies peaked in 1873 and has been declining since then. If Huebner is right, it is unlikely that humanity will be able to innovate its way out of the population and resource bottleneck we have entered. Our best hope is to reduce both our numbers and our consumption rates. Fortunately there are ways to do this that could preserve whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best about usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;our culture, science, compassion.

But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely miss that safe exit if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re frantically pursuing techno-fixes, stomping on the gas pedal as we go.

14CA0H43 As progressive Democrats and advocates and activists for peace and social justice, we are saddened to know that our one-time heroine, Lynn Woolsey, would make such a terribly wrong-minded decision to support war-hawk Congresswoman Jane Harman (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue Dog Blues,â&#x20AC;? Open Mic, May 5). What are progressive Democrats so afraid of ? How can they desert the core values of the Progressive Caucus and betray their constituents? This is exactly what the people who

Stephan Passalacqua has been reaching out to the community in partnership with volunteers to get the word out about the growing problem of elder abuse. There have been several very successful Elder Protection Summit seminars at different locations in Sonoma County. The seminars bring information to seniors and caregivers about protecting the rights of seniors and preventing both financial and physical abuse of elders. Mr. Passalacqua has shown that he values input from the community, and is committed to fighting the problem of elder abuse and protecting the rights of seniors. Outreach to the community and the desire and ability to work with the community are always important. In the present climate of budget cuts and subsequent staff reductions, it seems more important than ever. District Attorney Passalacqua has worked well with the senior community. He deserves to be re-elected.

Perhaps the author of this story (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Wines,â&#x20AC;? April 28) should have educated himself on alcohol labeling laws prior to writing this article. A winery with wines under 14 percent alcohol by volume must merely state on the label an alcohol level within 1.5 percent of the exact figure. Thus, in the 1970s, many wineries simply printed 12.5 percent, giving them the 1.5 percent leeway to go up to 14 or down to 11. Wines over 14 percent must adhere to the same rule, but must state a figure above 14 percent; i.e. a wine with 15 percent alcohol must state at least 14 percent but could say up to 16.5 percent. Utilizing labels as a way of determining average alcohols during a specific time period is a flawed method.

While Proposition 17 touts discounts, large surcharges also loom By Morgan Carvajal

?

roposition 17, the Continuous Coverage Auto Insurance Discount Act, sounds too good to be true. It indeed might be. This act allows consumers to qualify for a continuous coverage discount while still shopping around for the lowest rate, promoting competition in the free market. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the hitch? Like Proposition 16, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entirely backed by one company, in this case, Mercury Insurance. For some, this sends up red flags. According to Mike Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arelli, executive director of Alliance of Insurance Agents and Brokers and an advocate for Prop. 17, Mercury Insurance is supporting and funding Prop. 17 because it gives them the opportunity to offer consumers a better deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ninety-five percent of customers who go to

Mercury stay with Mercury,â&#x20AC;? says Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arelli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a fierce competitor, and they want to give the consumer what they want: choice and competition.â&#x20AC;? Relying on key words like â&#x20AC;&#x153;money-saving,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;lower rates,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;competitionâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;choice,â&#x20AC;? the argument in favor of Prop. 17 sounds convincing but, as written, leaves out some important information. Prop. 17 is not entirely about the discounts. This legislation has long-term effects that can be described by a few key words like â&#x20AC;&#x153;surcharges,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;financial penaltiesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;coverage history.â&#x20AC;? The allure of Prop. 17 is that consumers who choose to switch insurers can keep their continuous coverage discount and take it with them, saving up to $250 a year. At first glance, Prop. 17 doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound so bad. It promises added protections, including a 90-day grace period if drivers lapse on their car insurance payments. Under current law,

if drivers qualify for the continuous coverage discount, meaning they have maintained the same insurer for at least 12 months beyond their initial policy term, and then switch insurers, they cannot take that discount with them to a new company. Such a discount is made portable with Prop. 17. As Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arelli, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for me to understand how in good faith someone can oppose this.â&#x20AC;? Opponents argue that supporters have misled voters using language about discounts and money savings in their initiative, but that Prop. 17 is not about discounts. Doug Heller, the executive director of Consumer Watchdog, encourages voters to ask themselves when the last time a big insurance company spent millions to help consumers save money? The answer is simple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Insurance companies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put things on the ballot that are going to help the consumer; they do &(

things to help themselves,â&#x20AC;? Heller charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prop. 17 is entirely backed by Mercury Insurance, and changes the law to favor big insurance companies.â&#x20AC;? If passed, insurance companies would be permitted to ask a consumer for proof of auto insurance for the last five years without any lapse over 90 days, even if he or she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been driving during that time. If the consumer canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prove coverage, an automatic penalty of up to $1,000 could be added to the premium. Penalties based on coverage history were made illegal in 1988 by voters as a discriminatory practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Mercury] has taken a consumer protection in California law, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re attempting to throw it out using confusing language about discounts,â&#x20AC;? Heller says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prop. 17 isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about the discounts; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about getting rid of the consumer protection. College students who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a car, soldiers who live on base and people who lost their job or had to cut costs are all going to be forced to pay this surcharge when they reinstate their coverage.â&#x20AC;? Because of the $1,000 penalty, it can be assumed that the amount of uninsured drivers on the road will increase, costing everyone more money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the wake of recession, millions have stopped driving temporarily to cut their costs of auto insurance,â&#x20AC;? Heller says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this time and in this economy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be much more difficult for people to get back into the insurance market if they have to face a $1,000 penalty.â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arelli defends the proposition, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The opponents are using fear-mongering scare tactics. The fact is that between 1996 and 2002 the rate of uninsured drivers dropped from 28.6 to 13.1 percent because California allowed companies to provide drivers with this discount.â&#x20AC;? Prop. 17 supporters say the current law restricts drivers from shopping around for auto insurance and limits competition in the free market. It is estimated that 82 percent of California drivers currently qualify for the continuous coverage discounts and tend to stay with their insurance company to maintain their discount. The portable continuous coverage discount would help drivers maintain this discount while switching carriers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mercury Insurance supports Prop. 17 because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re investing in their growth,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arelli says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only way their going to grow is if they help the consumer.â&#x20AC;? Heller points out hidden loopholes in the Prop. 17 protections that make this a bad choice for consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The protections that are promised in 17 are misleading,â&#x20AC;? says Heller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A combined 90 days over a five-year period is not protection, no matter what way you look at it.â&#x20AC;? Opponents see Prop. 17 as a way to make insurance companies less accountable while giving them the ability to raise premiums and add penalties. As June 8 draws near, supporters are hunkering down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ballot box is the purest form of democracy,â&#x20AC;? says Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arelli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ballot box is you and I.â&#x20AC;? For his part, Heller says that the most important thing for the voters to consider when they go to the polls is to remember that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the damage Prop. 17 would do is amplified by the bad economy.â&#x20AC;?

hat familiar old bank building, curving sensually around the corner of East Washington and Petaluma Boulevard in downtown Petaluma is a far cry from being a beacon of green design. The bright, sugar-cube Roman façade rises to incredible heights for a one-story building, and must be hell to heat. But for the past year this commercial castoff with 30-foot ceilings has embraced a new purpose that fits perfectly with the original aims of the Sonoma County National Bank it once housed: wealth accumulation. Only now, the treasured currency is seeds. Not just any seeds, but those of food plants that predate the self-enthronement of grocers and bio-engineers to decree for us what kind of tomato will be on the table. Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, the Midwestern company that opened a retail outlet in the 1920sera bank building last year, has in just about four seasons brought back, placed in Amish-made retail racks, and made available to Bay Area gardeners a treasury of color, form and taste missing from mainstream markets for so long that some of us didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know it still existed. Sure, we can buy the same seeds online, but there is something powerful in this retail presence, something symbolically ingenious. Walking into the seed bank for the first time, I was struck by the way in which the old buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s details support the new business; at the transition zone between sidewalk and interior, the compressed-oval foyer is, oddly enough, shaped like a seed. And the extravagant ceiling height, intended originally to inspire reverence for the banking business, now helps emphasize sunshine and inspires a lofty confidence in the safekeeping of genetic wealth. These recycled architectural statements fit the new paradigm of seed-wealth banking, precisely what 29-year-old owner Jere Gettle is about; his plan for preserving genetic wealth is to distribute it as far and wide as he can, both online and via this retail outlet aptly situated in the navel of the pure-food movement. And many folks in the movement, out there tilling the soil in their yards or in planters on their

apartment decks, know that this new trend is essentially a grassroots (or, say, zucchiniand basil-roots) political movement that begins in the backyard and triumphs at the dining room. From the unadulterated little bundles of DNA known as seeds come our past and our futureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;where the bland-tasting, grocery-store tomato breaks loose and emerges in its natural gloryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tiny, mid-sized and giant gems ranging from lime-green and orange-yellow to pink and violet with as much variety in taste as well. I admired 179 varieties of tomatoes in the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seed catalogue, a glossy guide that celebrates the garden success of customers as far away as Mr. Kelesoglu in Istanbul and as close as Petaluma Bounty Farm, less than a mile from the seed bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People come here from all over the world,â&#x20AC;? said Gwen Kilchherr, the staff horticulturalist I met on my visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had visitors from every state in the country and from every country youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever heard of and some youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of.â&#x20AC;? Kilchherr has been with the seed bank since it opened last June. When I point to the hand-painted advertising on the 20-foot window glass, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of date.â&#x20AC;? The sign claims more than 1,275 varieties of vegetables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have 1,450 now,â&#x20AC;? Kilchherr says. Something tells me that this seed man, Gettle, must be getting on the nerves of the bio-engineering people and their lawyers. If only he werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so damn successful, they could ignore him and the pure-food movement that continues to grow. Baker Creek is reportedly supplying schools, orphanages and prisons with seeds, about $100,000 worth this year, making Gettle something of a Johnny Food-Seed figure, emerging at the eleventh hour to oppose the Frankenfood industry head-on. Monsanto is busy narrowing options, promoting monoculture and controlling ownership of engineered plants, while Gettle is busy spreading safer and cheaper options, expanding biodiversity and encouraging gardeners to save their seeds. His Petaluma retail presence gives an old bank new purpose; like a seed, it houses future growth for a more precious form of wealth.

CA0B7C0;: We asked Alastair to report on the Gu trash phenom, perhaps in regard to pros littering with support crews cleaning up, but he turned in this rant instead. OK with us.

4f8cžb6d When did athletes stop eating actual food? By Alastair Bland

F

hen every 100-calorie morsel of sustenance for the athlete comes in the form of processed goop contained in a disposable foil packet, we know that the cycling industry has completely traded cleanliness and efficiency for slick, processed, artificial imitations of the same. But is it anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business what another eats? In fact, it is, for when a cloned Lycra nerd throws his gel wrappers on the public pavement, it becomes everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen a cyclist in the act of such littering, but I suspect the culprits responsible for the endless road waste we see on popular cycling routes are the same roadies who leave their spent tubes on the ground. I can imagine them, panting up a moderate grade with candy wrappers dangling over their chins. Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mt. Tamalpais, a favored route strewn generously with energy-food wrappers. Though this route is a degree less challenging than many like to imagine, these weekend warriors suck their calories from a foil package of syrup and fancy they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the distant summit without it. They glance backward to see that the coast is clear, suck out the last drops, and flick their foil to the road.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt the attraction that others feel toward these processed foods, so I called Jim Keene, co-owner of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nor Cal Bike Sport and sister store the Bike Peddler to discuss. Keene says that energy gels represent advances in nutritional science that have helped lead to improved athletic performance since the 1980s, when he raced frequently and often relied for fuel on archaic products like bananas, grapes and water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of racers just blew it back then, totally hit the wall if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat right,â&#x20AC;? Keene remembers. Today, by contrast, formulated nutrition (which I once innocently believed only the very young or very old needed) has reduced risk of anemia, muscle cramping and of long-distance riders burning into their own body tissues for energy. But fresh air still blows through the high summits of cycling superstardom. Mountain biking superstar Gary Fisher prefers to eat â&#x20AC;&#x153;real food,â&#x20AC;? as he calls those things that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come in foil wrappers. Such items, he says, have delivered him from start to finish in uncounted races and rides since the 1960s. A meatloaf sandwich comes to mind as a favored road food, says Fisher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat Gu or gel, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just sugar and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good for you,â&#x20AC;? he told me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like drinking Coca-Cola. You can find all the minerals and nutrients you need in real foods.â&#x20AC;?

And Fisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts on those who litter the roads with their candy wrappers? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys are in way too big a hurry.â&#x20AC;? Legend says that Geronimo could walk 40 miles through the scorching desert carrying a mouthful of water, spit it out at the end, and walk home. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never tried that, but I did ride a double century (200-mile bike race) several years ago with a package of Clif Shot Energy Gel in my pocket, and I resisted all urge to eat it. Actually, there was no urge. Zero. I ate dried figs, bananas and nuts that day, and I did well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve since pedaled thousands of miles more, and the rejected package of goop still sits on my desk, testimony to its uselessness in a world of wonderful fruits, breads and beer. On the back of the package, instructions recommend that athletes eat a packet before exercise, two to three per hour during exercise and one within 30 minutes after exercise. Had I followed such guiding principles during my 218-mile ride, I would have eaten about two pounds of gel. The cycling industry would like us to believe that factory-made goop is more convenient, sexier and generally better than real food. Many have bought into the scheme, yet in this world of carbon, Spandex and maltodextrin, a few Luddites still ride. Some of us even stop to make sandwiches. THE BOHEMIAN

?;>CC8=6 ?;0=C8=6 had the pleasure and the privilege of visiting the White House garden early this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a longtime pal is a chef thereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and it got me thinking: How can we turn powerful imagery into delicious, real life? How can this tiny plot, which produced a thousand pounds of food in its ďŹ rst short season, really help put good food on American tables every day?

I

An answer came to me through the controversy brewing in and around Santa Rosa. Two groups are very publicly working to develop farm market buildings. One has toiled away for a decade to create something unique in Railroad Square; the other arrived, checkbook in hand, hoping to quickly build on the local fairgrounds. The talk is that there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be enough top-quality vendors to ďŹ ll all of the stalls. I say, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grow us some farmers! As the White House and school gardens all over the U.S. show, we can inspire and engage, we can grow, gather, cook and feed. Now all we need is to invest some time and cash in showing how those productive plots of earth can be organized for learning something beyond the precious lessons of taste and science, nutrition and foodways. We need to teach kids how simple methods developed worldwide over many millennia can organize their efforts into proďŹ table, small farming. And the time is now. Small farms, many minority owned, are one part of our pained economy that seems to be (forgive me) growing. And why not? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better or more valuable than fresh, delicious food? In a period of signiďŹ cant recalibration (read: the phony, bloated economy ďŹ nally popped and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back to reality), we tend to refocus on the blessed basics. After the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;87 crash, everyone wanted roast chicken and mashed potatoes. After 9-11, everyone wanted sushi to feel clean, clear and strong. Now, in the latter skid of the Great Recession, we want our own gardens, our own farms, our own farmers. So letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take the lead from Mrs. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden and carry it further still. Just as sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kicked off her anti-obesity ďŹ ght from between those leafy greens, so too can we promote the kind of hard work and good results that local family farming can dish up. Come to a spring garden celebration at Guerneville School on Saturday, May 15, with farmers Ariel Dillon, Jeff Russell and Nathan Boone, chef Mateo Granados, Redwood Hill Farms cheese tasting and food from Boon. 12:30pm to 2:30pm. 14630 Armstrong Woods Road, Guerneville. $5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.869.2864.

IH<>;>6HžB I4=8C7 he North Bay is a bottomless fount of subcultures, from carburetor enthusiasts to alpaca farmers to home bookbinding groupsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and now, fermenters, as evidenced by last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runaway success of the Freestone Fermentation Festival. A celebration of all things curdled, pickled, leavened and brewed, the festival attracted hundreds jockeying for the subtle perfection of that perfectly tangy ďŹ&#x201A;avor at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural gathering, and another Sonoma County subculture was ofďŹ cially born.

T

Wine being a product of fermentation thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already sufďŹ ciently celebrated around these parts, the Freestone Fest focuses on nonalcoholic fermentation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more to it,â&#x20AC;? says Michael Stusser, festival founder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fermentation was really at the foundation of the food preservation system before refrigeration came along. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deďŹ nitely an art.â&#x20AC;? On the grounds of the Salmon Creek Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about halfway between Freestone proper and Occidentalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the spot to try locally made breads, cheese, kimchi, pickles and sauerkraut. On the rise in Sonoma County is kombucha, a brewed tea given a certain amount of zip from a white, foamy â&#x20AC;&#x153;motherâ&#x20AC;? cake, and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never tried nato, a Japanese soybean dish, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in for a surprise. Admits Stusser: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an acquired taste dish.â&#x20AC;?

IdbbnĂ&#x2030;hLd`

Throughout the day, speakers will enlighten on sugars and microorganisms, while how-to classes on kimchi, sauerkraut and kombucha are sure to turn your kitchen into a science lab for the next several weeks. Music comes courtesy of the Mighty Chiplings, Jennifer Tucker, the Dream Farmers, the Hubbub Club and more, and, for the exhausted fermenter, there are even enzyme foot baths.

C 6 E 6

The real fun, naturally, is talking with the fermenters themselves about their process. Exhibitors include Redwood Hill Farm, Grindstone Bakery, LonjeviTea Kombucha, Cultured Pickle Shop, Alexander Valley Gourmet and many, many more, including Freestoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Wild Flour Bread and Osmosis Day Spa. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all happening on Saturday, May 15, at Salmon Creek School, 1935 Bohemian Hwy., two miles north of Freestone. Noon-5pm. Mention the Bohemian for special $15 ticket price at the door. www.freestonefermentationfestival.com. Gabe Meline

70AC5>A3 50<8;H F8=4AH â&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say that Hartford was tucked away amid a little pocket of vineyard on a road less traveled if there was any way to tuck away this ambitiously sized facility. Hatched by a sparkling wine venture in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, it was subsequently acquired by Jackson Family Wines. With Don and Jennifer Hartford at the helm, it is indeed part of the family: Jenny is the daughter of wine magnate Jess Jackson. Hartfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role is to produce coolclimate, limited-release wines in the classic Sonoma-style Burgundian suite: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Russian River Valley Zinfandel. Perfect lawns, sunshine and the shade of sycamores reward the taster who opts out of the small tasting room bar. The patio is nominally reserved, but the genuinely hospitable hospitality staff will work it out if one calls ahead.

I

Bearing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hartford Courtâ&#x20AC;? label, the Chardonnays are pretty typicalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is to say, typically reďŹ ned exemplars of this region. All the elements of barrelfermented Chardonnay are here in elegant distillate. Leather and oak take a back seat to subtle toffee and toast notes in the 2007 Four Hearts Russian River Valley Chardonnay ($40), with Meyer lemon and caramel that goes on and on. Made â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the style that Jennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister Laura likes,â&#x20AC;? the 2007 Lauraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RRV Chardonnay ($65) has the aroma of cake and subdued, balanced ďŹ&#x201A;avors. Richer reminiscences of butter cookies characterize the 2007 Seascape ($65) and 2008 Stone CĂ´te ($60), which takes its cookies over a core of Asian pear. Triple-sorting the grapes and then some assures the 2007 Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ($45) clean, dark plum aromas, while allspice, dried mushrooms and dark, indeterminate fruit saturate the 2007 Far Coast Pinotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ($70) voluptuous, silky body. Old vine Zinfandel from the cool Fulton area is bottled under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hartfordâ&#x20AC;? label, including 2007 RRV Zinfandel ($35), packed with bright cherry and vanilla, and ďŹ ne, chalky tannin that carries the ďŹ&#x201A;avors all the way to the ďŹ nish. The more intense 2007 Highwire Zinfandel ($55) is imbued with spice, sage, marjoram and deep brambleberry ďŹ&#x201A;avors. Up for release next week: Hartfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RosĂŠ of Pinot Noir. If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the pale, rosewater hue, this rosĂŠ could be mistaken for Sauvignon Blanc, with its sharpedged explosion of guava and assorted tropical fruits. It may be a road less traveled out to Hartford, but it sure makes all the difference. Hartford Family Winery, 8075 Martinelli Road, Forestville. Open daily from 10am to 4:30pm. Tasting fees vary. 707.887.8010.

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I can finish. I need a nap,â&#x20AC;? I panted over my cell phone, my dorky white shoe still clipped into the bike pedal, a gust of wind blowing against me as I stood on Vine Hill Road in western Sonoma County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, you can totally do it,â&#x20AC;? replied my teenage daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t puke, because that would be hella gross.â&#x20AC;? I was choking back tears, embarrassed to admit that I may possibly fail. A complete newcomer to the road cycling scene, I was only 35 miles into a 100-mile bike ride with 2,499 other cyclists in the Santa Rosa Cycling Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wine County Century. I had never before spun my wheels farther than 50 miles of mostly mild hills and had struggled furiously on nearly every ride. How was I going to finish this? I had no idea. My daughter was just handing the phone to my boyfriend so he could come pick me up when swarms of brightly colored spandex-clad men flew past with shouts of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Car back!â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;On your

left!â&#x20AC;? I decided that I had to keep on keeping on. After all, I had made it to the first rest stop after 25 miles, including a decent climb up Graton Road with what I later learned were mostly deflated tires. The rest of the day, I told myself after my tires were full, should be smooth sailing. I hung up the phone and pushed onward.

t had all started on a drizzly, shitty morning last fall. As the days grew cold and short, I was fleeing another failed relationship and recovering from a bout of swine flu. I was mopey, underweight and discouraged from a year of emotional and physical sucker-punches involving my health, more than one suicide and a ridiculously stressful job as a social worker. I peeled myself off of my living room floor, where I had spent the last few weeks wrapped in fleece blankets, hacking my lungs out and assuaging my loss of self-worth with Wes Anderson flicks. I forced myself to stop in for a chai at my neighborhood cafe on my way to another doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointment, hoping Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d run into someone who

could cheer me up. I sat, poorly postured and depleted in a plastic chair while the drizzle outside turned to rain and tore the last leaves from the trees along the train tracks. Everything sucked. I was a miserable, sniveling wreck. My friend Chris Wells, an always upbeat Midwestern ball of sunshine, arrived by bike, grinning from under his rain slicker. He pulled up a seat next to me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, man!â&#x20AC;? he blurted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look so great.â&#x20AC;? Desperately fishing for encouragement, I explained that I had to set some sort of tangible physical and mental goal for myself in order to avoid sliding into a winter of solitary doom. I also told him how badly I wanted to start cycling again. I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how or when to start. My days were full of single-parenting my two daughters and trying to make a living as a depressed freelance writer. An avid cyclist, Chris sipped his coffee and encouraged me to train for a local â&#x20AC;&#x153;grasshopperâ&#x20AC;? ride in the early spring.

ike most challenges I am presented with, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly start riding with ease or grace. I appointed family friend Jim Keene as my personal trainer. He outlined a plan and encouraged me to first focus on the amount of time I would spend on my bike instead of the actual mileage I might cover. This, he assured me, would increase my confidence and get me comfortable dealing with the often crazy traffic on Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backroads. He suggested 10 hours a week, which seemed doable, until I took into consideration life as a single mom and the approaching winter months. I knew that those weekly 10 hours would surely drop to zero and the healthy diet he recommended would rapidly transition to beer and happy-hour fondue. My mountain bike had been stolen, and all I had to train on was a salvaged single-speed. I needed a bike. Jim brought me to his shop for a custom fit. The store was generous enough to loan me the fanciest and most delicate of road bikes for my first few months of training. I clumsily maneuvered through the shop, concealing my face from the array of cute customers and their perfect sinewy legs as Jim shouted across the shop, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need something smaller! Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got short legs and a long torso!â&#x20AC;? Next came my fit, where I tried handling the brakes of the Specialized Tarmac with what Jim termed my â&#x20AC;&#x153;smaller than average handsâ&#x20AC;? and repeatedly practiced clipping in and out of the pedals with my new cycling shoes. I jumped and tumbled into my training with naivetĂŠ about my own strength and lung capacity. Starting off in the dead of winter, some may argue, was the stupidest thing I could have ever done. Yet I knew there would be fewer riders out, less cars swerving from vineyard to vineyard with wine pumping through their veins and more opportunities to discreetly cry over bleeding lungs that had just recovered from the H1N1 virus. A friend gifted me with hand-me-down gear and I stocked up on winter layers before my first bone-chilling rides. I even lined the inside of my shoes with some beaver fur that a friend had brought home from Alaska. I was a warrior against the elements. I was ready to rumble. I forced friends with decades of riding experience to tolerate my muscle atrophy and self-diagnosed emphysema as I whined and whimpered my way through foggy roads behind them. I coughed and hacked for hours and though I mostly expected severe leg cramps and a sore neck, I discovered that my fear-powered clenching of the handle bars was the worst of it.

I pathetically struggled from Santa Rosa to Glen Ellen in 40 degree weather while my riding partners happily chatted and checked their iPhones. I lost count of the times I had to keep from vomiting. Yet every week, I set sail with riding partners or alone, learning the lessons of chafing and bug-eating. I also enjoyed the alone time, though I felt plenty of motherly guilt for ditching my children, though I actually didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ditch them as often as I would have liked. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rush home after depositing my kids at school, fill my water bottles and stretch my shiny spandex pants up only to have the school call, asking me to pick up a sick kid. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d justify my annoyance and determination to get on that bike by remembering that the example of trying new things would empower them to someday do the same. I attempted to fill my lost riding time by borrowing indoor rollers, which sent me flailing across my living room and crashing into walls. I tucked the rollers away and waited for stomach flus to pass and sunnier days to knock at the door. Without the bike, I realized, I would surely sit still in isolation, demons surrounding my mind like Kerouacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bat-filled cabin in Big Sur. Without the movement and temporary escape the bike allows, no wind could blow through my helmet and remove the cobweb-covered madness that looms there.

nd on May 1, there I was, determined to finish those 100 miles in any way I could, teetering between delirium and rush. By mile 50, I had lost count of the hills I had walked rather than ridden my bike up, thinking only of the cookies that would greet me at the next rest stop. I had trained with an obscene amount of candy in the bike seat bag where I should have kept a spare tire, because food was what had truly kept me going. Over the course of three monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; training, I had gained 10 pounds from burgers, milkshakes and beer (including a beer milkshake!), rewards for not giving up when things became more challenging than I believed I deserved. I took every opportunity I could to stuff my face. I reached the second rest stop puffing through horrible leg cramps and envious of the ease with which male cyclists can urinate while riding. I felt sure that this would be my last stop. I stretched out on the dusty lot near Wohler Bridge and prayed that my legs would not buckle and lock into place. I roamed from piles of cookies to trays of bananas, gulping down a sport drink while cramming M&Ms into my mouth. As riders with more muscular frames than mine surrendered bikes and hopped into the support wagons that lined the road, I once again considered calling it a day. After all, I had just made it 50 miles! I could pat myself on the back and head home to see my kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;once, of course, I finished the pile of carbs I had just started. Then, the craziest inner voice spoke up and refused to let me quit.

C

he next leg of the ride, which would end with lunch at Lake Sonoma, kicked me in the gut. The urge to puke grew as I struggled against strong winds, my mind


racing and swinging between memories of excruciating childbirth and thoughts of exhilarating sex as riders around me grunted, moaned and sighed in a chorus of sound effects that could have been taken as easily from a hospital room as a porn set. I began fantasizing about shacking up with Alberto Contador (mostly because I like the idea of shouting “Contador!” during sex) and remembering the soul-shaking spazz-out of labor. My mind swirled around Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind” while sex fantasies and painful birth memories helped my numb legs to stubbornly continue to walk and ride—toward more food. Shadows on the pavement revealed a never-ending trail of potholes that may or may not have been hallucinations. I prepared myself for the possibility that I might actually vomit over the flirty guys who suggested I draft behind them. I called my kids and support crew for more encouragement as the delirium grew. Apparently, I was “bonking” from not eating enough, burning calories like draft cards in the ’60s. At the 70-mile mark, I ate again and set out, 30 miles left to ride, the ruthless wind finally at my back. I next arrived and quickly departed the Alexander Valley School after a gulp of icecold soda, heading toward the notorious Chalk Hill Road. “If you did Graton Road this morning,” assured a cyclist from Sebastopol who was finishing up his 200k ride, “Chalk Hill will be easy. It’s much shorter.” I felt a rush of confidence that was so foreign to me that I was convinced that some New Agey magic was being sent by my West County friends dancing around their May Pole. I charged forward and began to climb the mildest hill I had faced so far. “This is nothing!” I thought to myself. Then, around another corner after a brief decline, the real Chalk Hill climb loomed ahead of me, a monster grade. “Fuck meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” I shouted, not noticing the grinning man sneaking up on my left.

omewhere in those last miles, I stopped doubting myself. As I descended my last hill, I remembered the early years of motherhood when every single day felt like a goddamned 100-mile bike ride. Of course in those days, the luxury of a daylong ride, complete with an array of snacks and support crews, was not even an option. Much as the challenges of parenting throw us daily curveballs, leading us to question our decisions, our strength and our ability to push on through the rough times, this epic ride ended with a sigh of relief, a newfound sense of my inner badass and an unyielding love for the fun, the pain and the utter thrill of cruising through hills, valleys and forests on two wheels with a few thousand others who were presumably riding with the same exhilaration I was experiencing. As I pulled into the finish line, the cell phone in my jersey pouch began beeping. “You’re a rad mama! I am proud of you!” read the text from my teen. She was right. I am a rad mama. For the first time in years, I was proud of myself, too. And I really needed a nap.

Strange and wonderful, normal and informative things to know about this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour By Gabe Meline

aliforniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Victory When the Tour of California was rescheduled for May, many thought it might lose big-name riders to the Giro dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Italia, a Grand Tour event taking place simultaneously May 8â&#x20AC;&#x201C;30. But when deciding between the races, most of cyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legends opted for the Golden State. The Giro has some great cycling talent, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, Mark Cavendish, George Hincapie, Fabian Cancellara, Chris Horner, Andy Schleck or Tom Boonenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;because we do. The Stage Two Route Rather than coming through Marin County and up Highway 1 to Coleman Valley Road, as in years past, the tour this year arrives from its morning start in Davis through Napa County. After crossing Monticello Dam, the route goes up through Spanish Flat on the west side of Lake Berryessa, through Pope Valley and Angwin and into the outskirts of St. Helena on the Silverado Trail. A right turn over the Oakville Grade put riders on Trinity Road into downtown Glen Ellen, then down Warm Springs and Bennett Valley road, rushing into downtown Santa Rosa at approximately 3pm to 3:40pm. Where to Watch The peloton will only complete one lap through downtown Santa Rosa, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bound to be a lot of aggressive action. Getting a good spot to watch is more important than ever. Courthouse Square itself is an action spot with opportunities to jump from Fourth Street to Third Street, though crowds are thick around the finish line. The mall parking structure on Seventh and B provides good birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-eye viewing, and to witness the circuitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sharpest, scariest left turn, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the corner of Ninth and Wilson. Just past the raceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, the Third Street

THE BOHEMIAN



garage always fills up, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously a great spot to watch a thrilling finish if you get there early. Outside of Town Many diehard fans will be out at the Oakville Grade and Trinity Grade between Napa and Sonoma counties. Racers will pass much more slowly, and key separations are sure to occur on these two back-to-back King of the Mountain climbs. Other key KOM climbs in Napa County occur just west of the Monticello Dam and on Howell Mountain Road between Pope Valley and Angwin. For an authentic backroad experience, with cold beer and hot egg rolls while the race goes by, the Turtle Rock bar at Sage Canyon and Pope Valley Roads is a good choice. Shake Hands with Lance Team vehicles will be parked in the parking lot at Third and E streets, across from the library. After

the race, head there to catch a glimpse of the riders at their teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trailers. After last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finish, hometown hero Levi Leipheimer talked to fans and reporters while team director Johan Bruyneel chatted nearby. Lance Armstrong stayed inside the trailer, but before hopping into a black SUV with Leipheimer, he graced one lucky young kid with a handshake. For bike nerds, this is also the spot to get up close to the best gear in the world as the riderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cycles are being loaded onto the team trucks. Last year, a group of people crowded around just to touch and take photos of Armstrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike. The Afterparties Oodles of racers, announcers and bike-world celebs trickle into local restaurants and bars once the podium kissing is over. Downtown watering holes like the Russian River Brewing Co., Ausielloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Third Street Aleworks are usually shoulder-to-shoulder, while some of the smaller bars, like Stout Bros., are taken over by official race parties. After the obstacle bike race with elected officials in Courthouse Square, Bike Monkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lagunitas-fueled bracket racing contest kicks into fixed gear at Fourth and D until 8pm. Stalking Bobke Race announcers Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen are guests at a $175 Bicycles for Humanity charity dinner at Jack and Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on May 16, but Bob Roll, the wacky commentator whose wild hand gestures and surreal analogies have earned him Yogi Berra status in the cycling world, will be on the street in Santa Rosa interviewing cyclists for the Versus network. Roll is a cutup, a card and a crowd favorite; last year he shaved his head for charity and left a thin stripe of fur for the rest of his on-air day. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason any cycling fanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife actually watches the Tour de France, so expect a fan gallery following his gapped teeth, bald head and weird witticisms in Santa Rosa. The Granfondo Effect Last year, local pro and three-time Amgen winner Levi Leipheimer knew that budget woes were forcing the city of Santa Rosa to consider dropping out as a host city for the Tour, which costs the city upwards of $175,000 annually in services to host. Leipheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solution was the King Ridge GranFondo, a highly successful 103-mile fundraising ride on King Ridge Road which raised $60,000 to keep the Tour in Santa Rosa. The 2010 GranFondo ride is already sold-out, but the shorter 65-mile MedioFondo and 30-mile PiccoloFondo rides still have a scant few spaces. Register for the Oct. 9 fundraiser at www.levisgranfondo.com.

0?XTRT^U6^S½b0bb For a paltry $300, North Bay residents can buy a piece of late bike guru Sheldon Brown, or at least a piece of a bike that was once very, very close to him. Brown (1944â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2008) was considered by many bike tinkerers and bike nerds to be the source for the most obscure and arcane information about bike mechanics, through his website SheldonBrown.com. A May 2 Craigslist ad offers buyers the chance to own a rare â&#x20AC;&#x153;esoteric bike gem with great history,â&#x20AC;? once owned by Brown. What could it be? A wrench gripped by Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capable hand? A water bottle that touched his wise lips? Is that creepy? Yes. But probably not as disturbing as the actual relic up for sale: a Brooks saddle. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a highquality leather bike seat, the kind that ordinarily retails new for less than $100 but which had presumably been molded into the shape of Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own godly ass and baptized in his sweet, saintly ball sweat. Only $300. Skeptics, calling for proof of ownership, need not send for a DNA test, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause the saddle comes with a letter of authenticity from Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow. The seatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please no low balling,â&#x20AC;? the ad warns. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Kylie Mendonca

onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blink or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss itâ&#x20AC;? is the phrase on cycling fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lips around Santa Rosa this week. Except theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about the peloton. Instead, everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rubbing their eyes at the overnight transformation of the Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based BMC Racing Team. Founded in part by Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gavin Chilcott and Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charlie Livermore in 2006, BMC has undergone a restructuring of management, an inf lux of capital and a rush of incredible signings. Suddenly, BMC has gone from being the little racing team that could to the formidable racing team that will. U.S. National Road Race champion George Hincapie is on the team. Reigning UCI World Road Race champion Cadel Evans is on the team. And one week after receiving a coveted invitation to the Giro dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Italia, BMC earned the most desired invitation in cycling: an official berth to ride in the Tour de France. How did this all happen? Having Jim Ochowicz as the new president of BMC canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt. Ochowicz is a Cycling Hall of Famer and a road-race legend who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Olympics. He founded the 7-Eleven racing team in 1981, which became the first-ever U.S. team to be invited to the Tour de France, in 1986. He is, in a word, a godfather of American cycling.

Ochowicz, speaking last week by phone, says BMCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transformation is no accident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gavin and the smaller group, which started as a continental team and grew to be a pro continental team, expanded into what it is today through a concentrated effort about a year ago to move forward the timeline, potentially, on our ultimate objectives,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which, at the start of the project, was to get to the Tour de France. Which is what everybody says, right? But saying you want to do it and making it happen are two different things.â&#x20AC;? As a pro continental team, BMC was a wild card for Italy and France. But with last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster-building, which along with Hincapie and Evans included contracts with former road race champion Allesandro Ballan, team Astanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steve Morabito and Tour de France stage winners Marcus Burghart and Karsten Kroon, the deck was stacked in BMCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve reached our goals at least in terms of invitations,â&#x20AC;? Ochowicz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have to show our colors in the race and continue to earn our spots.â&#x20AC;? Though Cadel Evans is currently riding the Giro dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Italia as a favorite to win, BMC still has a strong roster for the Tour of California. George Hincapie will return. At age 36, Hincapie remains competitive, with three stage wins in recent Tours of California. He also serves as a mentor to younger riders on the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He communicates with them, and not just at the dinner table, or breakfast table,â&#x20AC;? Ochowicz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mentorship there does a lot for their confidence and their performance.â&#x20AC;? In this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour of California, those younger cyclists are also going to be riding alongside someone Ochowicz has a long history with: Lance Armstrong, who rode for Ochowicz on team Motorola. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time Lance is in a raceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;particularly in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for the other riders, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great experience to be able to race against the best bike racer in the world,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you were a professional basketball player and got to play against Michael Jordan, I mean, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something you tell your grandkids, right? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a once-in a-lifetime opportunity, particularly since Lance had already retired and came back,â&#x20AC;? adds Ochowicz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure how long heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to race. I know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s racing this year. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about next year, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to him, but you know, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be racing five years from now.â&#x20AC;? Still headquartered in Santa Rosa, and with Chilcott still on as team manager (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gavin knows all the terrain, knows all the climbs, knows all the roads,â&#x20AC;? Ochowicz praises), team BMC is entering a new era. And despite big moves in the cycling world, Sonoma County remains the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;a mecca for cycling,â&#x20AC;? says Ochowiczâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with the Tour of California a key event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to one day be coming back to the 25th anniversary of the Tour of California,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on their way to doing that.â&#x20AC;?

Pedal Pushinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; We all know that May 13 is Bike-to-Work Day, but how many of us actually ditch the car keys and strap on the helmet? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier than you think,â&#x20AC;? encourages Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 Bike Commuter of the Year Geoffrey Skinner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest hurdle is getting out the door.â&#x20AC;? Skinner, who commutes daily from Sebastopol to work at the Santa Rosa Central Library, is right, of course. With energizer stations set up all over Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties, dusting off and hopping on the old Schwinn is not only easy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to get warmed up for watching the Tour of California. Who knowsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you might even make a habit of it! Give it a shot on Thursday, May 13. www.youcanbikethere.com.

Sibling Revelry Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine a time when only a small handful of channels made up the television landscape, but in 1967, there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hundreds of networks dedicated to every political view under the sun, which makes the Smothers Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sly political commentary during national tumult all the more brave. David Bianculliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent 400page book Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; covers in excellent detail the Smothers Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; subtle infiltration of network television and, ultimately, the clashes with CBS that led to their firing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a definitive and often nostalgic guide to the hurdles Tom and Dick Smothers faced. In a rare performance, the pioneers in topical comedy appear on Friday, May 14, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $40â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$50. 707.546.3600.

where even the lanes are waxed, the waxed paint-jobs and waxed pompadours will be fired up with the sounds of the B-Stars, Kit and the Branded Men and the wonderfully named Blue Diamond Fillups. In the lot, a f leet of classic pre-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;72 cars will be on display for endless under-the-hood conversations, and the vinyl selections of DJ Vida Lee keep things hoppinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; between bands. Bring the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-agesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for a rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; good time on Saturday, May 15, at Napa Bowl. 494 Soscol Ave., Napa. 1pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. $10. 707.224.8331.

Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, Linda Ronstadt, Joe Cocker, R.E.M. and Willie Nelson. Webbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genius can be heard on Isaac Hayesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; version of his â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the Time I Get to Phoenix,â&#x20AC;? which Frank Sinatra called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the greatest torch song ever written,â&#x20AC;? and on the sprawling, creative and bizarre Richard Harris concept album The Yard Went on Forever. He performs on Saturday, May 15, at the Napa Valley Opera House, 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. 707.226.7372.

Cult Legend Like Burt Bacharach, the Oklahoma-born songwriter Jimmy Webb is an AM-radio legend, penning hits such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;MacArthur Park,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wichita Linemanâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up, Up and Away.â&#x20AC;? Unlike Bacharach, he hardly gets his due anymore. Courageously splitting away from commercial endeavors in the 1970s transformed Webb into something of a cult figure whose fans include

Glamour Grind Most dance clubs strive for f lashiness in their names, but looking at the greatsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Fabric, the Hacienda, Pacha, Studio 54â&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that simpler is better. Party: Sixth and Wilson has a similarly plain, descriptive title, and could well just be the dance event of the season. In an effort to completely transform the inside of the normally staid brick North Bay Film & Art Collective, the event producers are bringing in â&#x20AC;&#x153;live plants of all shapes and sizes, mylar and other plastics, glass globes, sound loops and video montagesâ&#x20AC;? for an experience the promoters are promising will â&#x20AC;&#x153;immerse the partygoer.â&#x20AC;? With DJs from Detroit and San Francisco, expect to sweat up a frenzy at Party: Sixth and Wilson on Saturday, May 15, at the North Bay Film and Art Collective, 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 9pm. $12; 21 and over. www.myspace.com/northbayfac.

?46643 Kaki King has graduated from tapping and hammering with her latest album.

@dTT] :X]V

Kaki King keeps conquering new horizons By Leilani Clark

7

igh off the energy of a successful European tour, a stage-igniting performance on Jimmy Fallon and heading toward a performance at the Catâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cradle in North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which, according to afternoon tweets, will feature a guest appearance by John Darnielle of the Mountain Goatsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Kaki King is moving at light speed toward rock-god status. Well, OK. Maybe more like tour-van speed. Actually, since King was voted one of Rolling Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guitar Godsâ&#x20AC;? in 2006â&#x20AC;&#x201D;the only woman to make the listâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technically already arrived. Next stop, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? King stops by the Mystic Theatre on May 20 in support of her latest album, Junior, which teems with vibrant, angsty pop songs, punctuated by epic washes of guitar and layered vocal choruses. From the blazing opening track â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Betrayerâ&#x20AC;? to instrumental songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Nerves That Committed Suicide,â&#x20AC;? the album rises and plummets from quiet intensity to towering energy. Tight guitar melodies build to anthemic bridges, the kind that get stuck in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head for daysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like versions of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tom Sawyerâ&#x20AC;? for a new millennium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a huge fan of Rush. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so cool to hear that,â&#x20AC;? says King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That big, epic, delayed sound. Even on [2006â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] Until We Felt Red

THE BOHEMIAN



I did a song called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that had a lot of that vibe to it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of anthemic songs. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a running trend in my records for quite some time.â&#x20AC;? The release of Junior marks a new phase in Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to musicianship. This is the first time she has recorded an album, as well as toured, with other band members. Previously, the 30-year-old has played all instruments herself and worked with producers to craft ideas into songs. Lush, driving songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gay Sons of Lesbian Mothers,â&#x20AC;? a sparkling instrumental track off Until We Felt Redâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;produced by John McEntire (Tortoise, Stereolab)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;have resulted from these sessions. For this latest effort, King recruited multi-instrumentalist Dan Brantigan and drummer Jordan Perlson to help in the songwriting process. King came into practices with rough song sketches, and her band mates helped flesh them out. The result, King says, is an album with rawer intensity and few overdubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We already had a basic palette to work from, as opposed to creating everything from scratch, and that was a lot easier for me, as opposed to other records where I was scared off by that process,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a much more basic album than anything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done in the past, which is why I named it Junior.â&#x20AC;? In another switch, the fiercely independent musician has moved away from the finger-tapping and slapping guitar percussion that she has been lauded for in the past, although fans will be happy to know that, during live performances, she still delves into the fretboard tricks that first brought her attention. King gets bristly when asked whether anyone has expressed disappointment in her move toward more conventional styles of playing and away from tapping and hammering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of five records, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only written about six songs that incorporate that technique,â&#x20AC;? she schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe 10 percent have anything to do with that style. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating. Sure it was important to my career in the beginning, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been three records since that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had anything to do with that. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still trying to convince journalists to open up their minds and go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, maybe sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not some one-trick pony.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? But when asked about her gear, Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; who was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2007 for her contributions to the Into the Wild soundtrackâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;loosens up, happily describing a litany of pedals used for live performancesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Boss DD3, octave, tremolo, volume pedal for swells, loop stationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the shockingly versatile tiny guitar with which she took the stage for the recent Fallon performance. With a laugh, King describes the instrument as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad-ass-motherfucker ukulele.â&#x20AC;? Onstage, King is a petite woman with a tiny guitar, but her sound is massiveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;augmented now by Brantiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thick, MIDI-controlled bass. Playing as a three-piece has clearly excited King with additional possibilities, and seems to have opened up horizons previously impossible to achieve playing as a solo artist. With a new band, King is a consummate musician on the road to legendhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even when traveling along at tour-van speed. Kaki King performs Thursday, May 20, at the Mystic Theatre. 21 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$18. 707.765.2121.

a Mission is a simple story of the rough-hewn Che (Benjamin Bratt), a Muni conductor and ex-con whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 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 rage at his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexuality is tempered by the attentions of his lovely new neighbor, Lena (Erika Alexander). Director Peter Bratt and brother Benjamin have been San Franciscans and movie fans all their lives. In a recent interview, Benjamin told the Bohemian that Peter had created â&#x20AC;&#x153;a metaphorical low-rider cruiseâ&#x20AC;? through the Mission to match Cheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happens sets him on a spiritual journey to get in touch with the divine feminine principle,â&#x20AC;? Peter adds. Benjamin comments, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to make Che one of those heroes we have come to revere in cinema, compelling and attractive in that kick-ass way of taking care of business, [but] what really makes him tick? What we discover is that for Che itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love, not just for his son but for his community.â&#x20AC;? The problems of making La Mission included a small ($2.5 million) budget and a film industry that believed that releasing Brokeback Mountain meant never having to deal with gay hatred again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then came Proposition 8,â&#x20AC;? Peter says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Latinos and other minorities turned out to vote against gay marriage in record numbers. When we started working on this film, with homeboys and lowriders alike, we ran into homophobia.â&#x20AC;? The film is a celebration of San Francisco. Problem is, San Francisco is still a city. 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. La Mission opens on Friday, May 14, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840. Richard von Busack

?;0H8=6F8C710;;B

The Rep kicks off a new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Reducedâ&#x20AC;? show irst, the stats. According to Reed Martin and Austin Tichenorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the writing and performing team behind the (abridged) series including shows about the Bible and William Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there have been 3,477.3 different sports, in nine distinct categories, since the beginning of human history. In their newest show, The Complete World of Sports (abridged), opening this weekend, Martin and Tichenor do for baseball, basketball and sepak takraw (a torturous Southeast Asian form of volleyball), what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already done for Moses and Hamlet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun to do, and presumably is a lot of fun to watch,â&#x20AC;? says actor Ben Stowe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been wild working with all of these guys, developing this weird new comedy. It is a comedy, right?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope so,â&#x20AC;? Martin nods, eyes widening in mock panic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trick with our shows,â&#x20AC;? Tichenor adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for the actors, is to play it as if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not funny. If they act like they know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not funny. If they act as if everything they say is dead seriousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hilarious.â&#x20AC;? The fledgling show features Stowe, along with Chad Yarish and Dodds Delzell (above, in that order). Martin and Tichenor are directing, taking advantage of a rare opportunity to develop a new script without also starring in it. In August, Martin and Tichenor, stepping in as performers this time, will take Sports on the road under the auspices of their legendary comedy/theater group, the Reduced Shakespeare Company. As always, Tichenor and Martin have packed the script with tricky wordplay and acrobatic puns. There are the usual assortment of broad physical gags too: a slow motion, instant replay of a rock-paper-scissors game. A bit about menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s synchronized swimming. A demonstration of the first sport ever played: Neanderthal-in-the-Middle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great about this show,â&#x20AC;? Delzell remarks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is that, as an audience member, just like in the Bible show or the Shakespeare show, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to know anything about the subject matter to enjoy it. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a sports fanatic to get this show. In fact, even if you hate sports, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy it. You might even like it more if you do hate sports.â&#x20AC;? The Complete World of Sports (abridged) runs May 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 13, at the Sonoma County Repertory Theater. Thursday-Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. 104 N. Main St., Sebastopol. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.823.0177.
