01XVVTaFPa How can the world be at peace if we are against ourselves?

By Cheyenne ChefĂŠ

H

our boyfriend forgot to call. Your feelings are hurt. Your husband didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t load the dishwasher correctly. He left his dirty clothes on the f loor. He left the toilet seat up. He never calls when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late. He always interrupts you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so annoying. You have to talk. You have to go to therapy. You want to be heard. You might break up. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger war out there. There are babies starving, fathers dying, mothers crying. There are prisons overf lowing, boys joining gangs, doctors pushing drugs, plastic filling the oceans. Mustangs are slaughtered for dog food. Dogs are killing people. Whales are becoming extinct. Nobody knows what to do. Go buy a new BMW, have an affair â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cause good sex will make it all right. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all right. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all right. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger war out there. There are criminals running the show, parents telling their kids to â&#x20AC;&#x153;just say no,â&#x20AC;? hypocrites in politics, big business killing the little guys, leaders telling lies, GMOs and pesticides. Little girls are cutting themselves while America is busy watching its weight, watching the news, watching Dancing with the Stars. Your mother-in-law is a witch. Your sister is a drama queen. Your tween wants a piercing. Your boss is a jerk. Your jeans are too tight. Some idiot cut you off in traffic. Your rage monster surfaces. You ordered your steak well done. It was pink. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger war out there. Women are being stoned. Tibet is not free. Speech is not free. Racism is rampant. People think an eye for an eye is a viable solution. Rain forests are cleared for cattle. Oil is saturating the ocean. The sky is filled with chem trails. Children are being stolen, sold and raped. And you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle commitment to a woman who adores you. You want her. You need space. You love her. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid of abandonment.

You trust her. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid of divorce. Afraid of being a statistic. Afraid of being like your parents. Put it in perspective. All your battles are elective. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not willing to fight your wannabe war. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger war out there. And where does this gigantic war start? Right inside each and every one of us. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. In each and every one of us. I know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking. Oh no, not me. I believe in peace and love and freedom. I buy organic food. I ride my bike to work. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much easier to point the finger, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much easier to look outside ourselves and blame someone out there: the Republicans, the red necks, the racists; the hippies, the hookers, the hobos. If you judge them, you judge yourself. If you hate them, you hate yourself. If you resent them, you resent yourself. How can the world be at peace if we are against ourselves? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger war out there. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an inside job. I only know because I have this war in myself. I have the fear, the judgment, the petty arguments, the haunted past. Help me. Heal yourself. Heal your family. Which will heal your community, your country, the world. Stop the war within to end the war out there. Break down your walls. Open your heart. Bust your ego. Be vulnerable. Be grateful. Be still. Say thank you. Say I love you, even if you may not hear it back. Keep your word. Lay down your weapons. Lay it on the line for peace. Lay it on the line for me. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger war out there.

SANTA ROSA STORE ONLY

Bust your ego. Be vulnerable. Be grateful. Be still.

H4B>=?A>? ( On Nov. 2, we go to the polls to vote on a number of issues. Among them is Proposition 19, which will legalize marijuana, its recreational use and its production. The good aspect of this legislation means that incarceration for three-time offenders would end. The bad news is that the sale of marijuana is still illegal under the federal Controlled Substances Act. The argument for the passage of Prop. 19 is very compelling. The amount of money saved in feeding, clothing and indicting three-time offenders would make a difference in the local and state budgets. Passing the resolution does not imply that nonusers will rush to become users. It probably will lower crime rates in states bordering Mexico and lower the need for additional officers to search areas for marijuana plants.

It probably will do less harm to the general public than drivers that partake of alcohol. The lives of many who cross the borders between Texas and Mexico will not be at the mercy of drug dealers, cartel lords who do not hesitate to kidnap and murder travelers when drug sales donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfy the drug lords. I urge a yes vote on Prop. 19.

B>14A8=6=D<14AB I was fortunate enough to be stopped at a Petaluma Police Department sobriety checkpoint recently. It caught me by surprise, as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never encountered such a traffic stop. The police officer who checked my driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license

asked a few questions, which I answered honestly. He quickly tested my eye reactions and before waving me on, handed me a postcard with the title â&#x20AC;&#x153;DUIâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Can You Pay the Price?â&#x20AC;? It was a shock to see the costs in print; up to as much as $13,500 in financial cost, besides other â&#x20AC;&#x153;costsâ&#x20AC;? that are even more critical to oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Those few minutes gave me new insights that will make me a better, more aware driver, and certainly will help me, as I hope it will others, choose not to drink if driving. I thank these enforcement officers with helping to educate the public while limiting the number of impaired drivers on the road. To others, such as Kendall-Jackson, for making breath-analyzers available for voluntary self-testing, I congratulate you. May other companies, businesses and organizations follow your example. It was an eye-opening, one could even say sobering, experience.

1>>>=10AAH If I had been working like mad in 2008 to get Barack Obama elected, I would not work for the midterm elections. GuantĂĄnamo is still here. Rendition is still here. There is the saying that no torture should take place; I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the mechanism to ensure that thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case. The withdrawal from Iraq has left some 50,000 remaining. We have stepped up and escalated the war in Afghanistan. I think all of this is very contrary to the kind of thing that Obama was exuding during his campaign, including the nuclear point. What kind of thing is this, to get rid of old-fashioned weapons with the Russians and then argue for $180 billion to modernize the nukesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;$100 billion for the weapons carriers, $80 billion for new warheads? What kind of nuclear-free world is this? He should have had the decency, when Norway made the mistake of giving him the Nobel Peace Prize, of saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I graciously, gratefully decline. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earned it yet. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come back when possibly I have earned it.â&#x20AC;? He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that, and dispensed with the prize money in a disgraceful way.

=>024?C0==D4BCA>0<>A Roselandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Cinco de Mayo celebration has brought the neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vibrant culture into the spotlight, but still not into the city limits.

2Xch^U3aTP\b

A quarter century after its annexation was first proposed, Roseland remains a county island smack amid a city. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the holdup? By Gabe Meline

;

aura Martin awoke from the loud crash at 3am. At first, she thought it was an explosion. She ran from the bedroom and saw that a drunk driver had barreled through her front fence, through her yard and smashed into her car, slamming it against the side of the house. She called 911. Martin gave her address, McMinn Avenue, and was asked by dispatch if she lived in the city or the county. County, she said, and was transferred to the Sonoma County Sheriff. Was the car on the sidewalk? they asked. Because the front yard is county and the sidewalk is city. She was transferred

to Santa Rosa Police. They looked at her address: right inside the county line. Transferred her back to county. And so forth. For 15 minutes. Half an hour later, officers finally arrived, but it was too late. The driver had long since driven away. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car was totaled. She was beside herself, a schoolteacher with a young son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really scary,â&#x20AC;? she says, still flustered by the runaround. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We moved not too much longer after that.â&#x20AC;?

;

ook at a map of the city limits of Santa Rosa, and down in the southwestern corner thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a giant hole. The city limits extend entirely around and beyond this pocket of land, creating an island of

county jurisdiction with about 6,000 residents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been made an official part of the city of Santa Rosa, even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an established community for over a hundred years, has a healthy businesses district and is just one mile away from downtown and city hall. This is Roselandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;home to the highest concentrated population of Latino residents in the city, although â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the cityâ&#x20AC;? is a misnomer. The residents of Roseland donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to vote in city elections. They lack parks, libraries, pools, community centers and other amenities the city provides. They are connected to city water and sewer services, but public works infrastructure for their roads and sidewalks is passed back % -

and forth between the county and the city, as is the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law enforcement, which, as Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story illustrates, results in a jumbled, often confused combination of Santa Rosa police, county sheriff and highway patrol. Some see race as a factor in why Santa Rosa has treated Roseland like a bastard child, so far failing to offer it the respect of annexation. Welcoming the neighborhood into the city limits is not just the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duty to the area, they say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moral duty. By annexing Roseland and thus disproving the notion that it is systematically shutting out its Latino community, its poor families and others too often accorded second-class treatment, Santa Rosa will emerge a stronger, prouder city. And yet annexing Roseland, which is now in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general plan, has become a story of missed opportunity. The city areas surrounding Roseland were annexed largely because of revenue generated from development, which, as any local construction worker can attest, no longer exists in the current economy. Some residents who had previously worked with the city on annexation have lost interest or faith, or both, in the numbing bureaucratic process. And in the meantime, Roseland has been getting along without what some see as the condescending air of governmental oversight. Will Roseland ever be a part of the city of Santa Rosa? If so, it will take years and lots of money. Even then, it could be protested and put to the residents for a vote. While the entire annexation project is on a recessionborn backburner, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth asking if residents really want it and how the city can ever find a way to actually embrace Roseland as its own.

Not Pointing Fingers â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you what,â&#x20AC;? says Efren Carrillo, sitting at a table outside the Delicias Elenitas taco truck in Roseland, interrupted often by old friends and well-wishers from the neighborhood, â&#x20AC;&#x153;both the city and the county share some blame and share responsibility for having an area that has become increasingly urbanized not annexed.â&#x20AC;? As the Fifth District county supervisor, Carrillo, 29, has been pushing hard for annexation, in part because he grew up in Roseland and knows how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been underserved in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fixing this roadâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;he gestures to Sebastopol Road, the once virtually undriveable main artery of Roselandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the biggest improvement here since 1984, when we went into redevelopment. For an area to be in redevelopment for so long, and yet this is all weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to show for it, there is some sense of injustice there.â&#x20AC;? That sense of injustice parlays into comments, widely repeated regarding Roselandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exclusion from city limits, which accuse Santa Rosa of out-and-out racism. Carrilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard them before and strongly disagrees, although he admits the city should have made a plan to annex Roseland during its rabid annexation of the revenuegenerating land surrounding Roseland in the 1990s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think that folks failed to recognize this area as a priority area,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t point fingers, because that does us no good.â&#x20AC;? Carrillo mentions plans for the area, including an extensive project to finance and build mixed-use housing with an outdoor plaza and a cultural center on Roselandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large, abandoned strip mall, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the biggest potentials for economic development in the county or, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annexed, the city.â&#x20AC;?

city and county are accomplishing together, and laments the distorted perception most of the rest of Santa Rosa has about his old neighborhood. Carrillo gets up from the table. Residents keep recognizing him, calling out to him in Spanish while he gets into his car. It’s Sept. 15, the eve of Mexico’s bicentennial celebration of independence, and he’s headed to a party in San Francisco. Before leaving Roseland, though, he drives around the block to revisit his childhood home, the one-bedroom duplex he grew up in, on Sunset Avenue. In front of this place, with a broken fence and trash in the yard, the memories come flooding back. With a family of five already, it was tough when Carrillo’s grandfather had to move in. Space outside was another concern, since Roseland has a staggering lack of park land. Carrillo stares across the street that used to serve as his front yard. “See that kid?” Carrillo asks, waving to a boy kicking a ball in the asphalt parking lot of a graffititagged apartment building. “That’s his ball field, right there.”

What’s Going On A strong push for annexation began seven years ago, after the closure of the Albertson’s on Sebastopol Road. The empty supermarket has since towered over an empty parking lot, a looming, boarded-up reminder of the neighborhood’s neglect, causing the city and county to finally look at the possibilities of formulating a plan. Or, in the parlance of government, to formulate a plan to have a plan of finding an approach to move forward with bridging the gaps of developing a method for crunching the numbers of annexation. The city and county’s first step had been to look at how much revenue the area makes (in property taxes, sales taxes, utility taxes, motor vehicle taxes and more) versus how much expense the area requires (fire, police and roads, mostly). Roseland costs money and is viewed, at least on paper, as an economic burden. In 2005, studies conducted by out-of-town consultants determined the amount of Roseland’s cost to the city and county over a projected 10year period; the city estimated a $2.4 million annual cost, while the county estimated a $1.3 million annual cost. The majority of that $1.1 million annual discrepancy, which is still holding up proceedings, was the cost of law enforcement, which the county calculated as costing $613,034 less than the city’s estimate. “Our feeling is that when the police are already serving the residents around these islands, the added cost is marginal,” says deputy county administrator Lori Norton. “It’s not like you’re having to add a whole new beat or set of services.” This gap caused the city and county to jointly hire an additional out-of-town consultant to not simply run the numbers again but to develop a standard of methodology toward running the numbers again. It is costing the city and county $35,000. When that report comes back, yet another out-of-town consultant will be hired. And after that? “Once the city and county identify what the costs are, and we agree, or agree to disagree, then we’ll have to have some kind of a plan,” says Chuck Regalia, director of community development for Santa Rosa, illustrating the lengthy process. “And that plan might be? I don’t know

what it is,” he adds. “My sense is I can’t imagine where we would get the money to hire more officers at this point. So maybe it’s a timing thing. It’s a plan as to when that can happen. There’s a whole process—we’d probably have to do an environmental impact report, there would be a pre-zoning. That’s just the normal annexation process that usually takes a year.” At that point, it would only take 25 percent of registered voters in Roseland to protest annexation and put it up for a vote. Regalia says he’s attended several community meetings, “and it wasn’t clear to me that people wanted to annex.”

‘Nobody recognizes that the highest concentration of locally owned businesses is on Sebastopol Road.’ —Magdalena Ridley Carrillo resolutely says residents “absolutely” want annexation, and would be amazed if it was successfully protested. (An oft-cited poll from the 1990s showed that residents were at that time against annexation, but not only was it conducted before surrounding development arose, it’s also rumored to have been canvassed and massaged by an anti-annexation contingent.) Perhaps the city should conduct a current preliminary poll before advancing with expensive annexation plans, but that would cost money. Though it’s easy to mock the slow pace of governmental progress, it’s a simple fact that Santa Rosa is severely neckdeep in economic molasses. Its city budget has already been drastically cut, with the general fund projected to be a further $8 million short next year. Unless the city can simultaneously annex revenue-generating areas of the county, such as the Friedman’s Home Improvement site on Santa Rosa Avenue, then bringing in Roseland would be yet another strain on a city budget that’s barely hanging on by a thread. Both Norton and Carrillo confirm that Friedman’s is the county’s primary source of sales tax, but acknowledge that the county would be willing to look at other sources of revenue after potentially trading Friedman’s for Roseland. Such a trade would be made complicated, Regalia explains, by the multitude of mobile homes along Santa Rosa Avenue which the city would be required to annex in order to access Friedman’s sales taxes. The city and county have different rules for mobile homes. Residents require public services. Ideally, the city would skip the mobile homes and just take Friedman’s, but, he says, “you can’t go out and just annex Friedman’s as an island.” And yet it’s perfectly OK to create &%

a county island within city limits? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well . . . yes,â&#x20AC;? Regalia says plainly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, we did.â&#x20AC;?

Losing Faith â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve annexed all the areas around Roseland,â&#x20AC;? says Magdalena Ridley, sitting in Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Courthouse Square, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and gotten commercial and tax revenue from developing the fields I remember as a kid, and the Corby auto row and all the shopping centers that people from Roseland shop at along Stony Point Road. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of the city, and we, somehow, are considered separate from that. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get credit for that revenue. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seen as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;islands,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; as if we landed here from somewhere else. We created the opportunities for all these areas to be developed.â&#x20AC;? Ridley, 29, an outreach coordinator at LandPaths Bayer Farm on West Avenue, is a lifelong Roseland resident and one of its most passionate defenders. She has been asking Public Works for a crosswalk in front of her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, Sheppard Elementary, for over a year. Proud of her communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolve, dismayed at its neglect, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been involved with the annexation process, listening to the numbers game continually put forth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it stalls in these endless, stupid meetings where they talk about the same thing over and over,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying consultants to tell them what the price differential is going to be! Stop wasting all that money. Just annex it already and deal with it.â&#x20AC;? But with annexation would come changes. Many Roseland residents keep goats and chickens, and city ordinances currently prohibit keeping livestock in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard. Taco trucks and chicharrĂłn carts are a staple in the neighborhood, but city ordinance severely limits them. (The owners of at least two popular taco trucks in Roseland say that they are opposed to annexation because of the restraints on hours of operation.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of car clubs in their neighborhood,â&#x20AC;? says Ridley, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and a lot of people who work on their own car in their front yard, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue, too.â&#x20AC;? Carrillo assures that certain land uses could be grandfathered in with annexation, while Regalia notes that the zoning code could possibly be altered citywide to allow residents to keep a certain number of backyard animals. However, Regalia says enacting similar city code changes regarding taco trucks, street food carts and pop-up vendors is unlikely, meaning that such staples of the Roseland neighborhood would be threatened. Taco trucks would be required to stay mobile, only selling in one location for 30 minutes at a time, and reports of enforced closing times within city limits range from 5pm to 6pm, according to truck owners. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longstanding fixation on new development also worries Ridley, since sales tax is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary source of revenue for public services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the city comes in and makes this place as brand-new and fixed-up as anywhere else, where is the community going to go?â&#x20AC;? she asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find it so fascinating that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this entire culture in Sonoma County of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go Local,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but nobody recognizes that the highest concentration of locally

owned businesses is on Sebastopol Road. Those businesses need to be protected.â&#x20AC;?

Business as Usual One such business is Wescottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auto Wrecking, whose purpose was singled out in a 2007 urban vision plan report for Sebastopol Road, prepared by yet another out-of-town consultant. The report cites uses in the area that are â&#x20AC;&#x153;incompatible and no longer desirable (such as auto wrecking yards),â&#x20AC;? but this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alarm owner Bob Wescott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to the garbage men,â&#x20AC;? he sighs, having heard it all before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone wants you to pick it up, but no one wants you to put it down.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If Roseland was smart, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be its own incorporated area.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Dave Puccetti Wescottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrecking yard has been on Sebastopol Road since 1948, and he raises an eye at the same planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insistence on environmental sustainability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How much environment are we saving by selling all this used stuff ?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re recycling here.â&#x20AC;? Ironically, the original 1984 redevelopment plan for Sebastopol Road rued the corridorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small parcel sizes, since it recommended that â&#x20AC;&#x153;strip commercial facilities be encouraged to develop and expand.â&#x20AC;? Some 26 years later, the new urban vision plan specifically urges to â&#x20AC;&#x153;avoid â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;strip mallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; type development,â&#x20AC;? much to the relief of Jose Rodriguez, owner of Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taqueria on Sebastopol Road. (Rodriguez was pleased when in 2008 a proposed Wal-Mart near his business was blocked in court.) Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently moved from city land to county land. As a business owner, Rodriguez recognized little difference and would prefer Roseland to stay as county land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have roots in this area,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Latinos, we like to stay in the same part of the city. Roseland would be OK without the city.â&#x20AC;? Dave Puccetti, owner of the popular secondhand store Fattyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Threads, agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanna annex it,â&#x20AC;? he cautions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine on its own. If Roseland was smart, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be its own incorporated area.â&#x20AC;? Puccettiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shop is a bustling hub of neighborhood residents, none of whom seem interested in annexation when asked. From Puccettiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of view, the city has stalled annexation for so long that their priorities are evident, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust the city to take care of Roseland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The general thing,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is that the city has turned from being an agent for the people into a revenuegenerating service for themselves.â&#x20AC;?

Looking Ahead Roseland is not the only county pocket in the city of Santa Rosa; in fact, there are many, including the largely Latino and relatively poor Santa Ana subdivision south of South Park, a rural neighborhood across from G&G

Supermarket on College Avenue near Link Lane, and large portions of Montecito Drive in the wealthy Montecito Heights area. But since 2006, when the annual Cinco de Mayo celebration began filling the Albertsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking lot with shoulder-to-shoulder revelers, there has been increased awareness about Roselandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-class status outside the city limits and, news reports of crime notwithstanding, its vibrant culture. Celebrating that culture rather than impacting it is a priority, and one sure thing are the positive intentions officials say they have for Roseland. Norton calls annexation â&#x20AC;&#x153;good government,â&#x20AC;? Regalia calls annexation with the proper services a â&#x20AC;&#x153;moral obligation,â&#x20AC;? and Carrillo refers to Roseland as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a jewel of the county.â&#x20AC;? If current plans continue, it will be made even more of a jewel, with the awaited transformation of the old Albertsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s site into a mixed-use housing center, an openair plaza and an â&#x20AC;&#x153;international village and marketplaceâ&#x20AC;? that reflects the pride residents have for their neighborhood. This year, a preliminary proposal was submitted by Mission Housing, an affordable-housing developer based in the heart of San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Latino-heavy Mission district, including 88 low-income rental units and 50,000 square feet of groundfloor commercial space, including a plaza for farmers markets and events. Kathleen Kane, executive director of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Development Commission, calls it â&#x20AC;&#x153;certainly our highest priority at the moment,â&#x20AC;? having just dedicated $3.74 million in redevelopment funds toward the purchase of the property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am confident that a mixed-use project will get built there. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guess at this point what it will look like or on what time frame.â&#x20AC;? Asha Safai from Mission Housing

presented the project to a community meeting at Roseland Elementary earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The issues that were raised are very valid issues,â&#x20AC;? he says, citing parking and plaza size. He says the project is in revisions and if all runs smoothly, could be open, at least in stages, by 2012. And if the adjoining property owner is amenable to the county and Mission Housingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outreach to partner and redevelop the eastern side of the shopping center as well, an even larger plaza center could be built in the heart of Roseland. What would that mean? Closure of the popular Dollar Tree store, for one. Hopes of the Continental Lanes bowling alley ever reopening dashed. And depending on the adjoining ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance, possible relocation of Roseland Barber Shop, Tarasco Market and Taqueria El Farolito. Which all adds up to what most see as an acceptable tradeoff and what a few see as too drastic a makeover. But until it is finally built, a dispiriting legacy of the missed opportunities of Roseland becoming a part of the Santa Rosa city limits is those who have had their faith strained by the long, tedious process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hate to say it, because as a resident I should be rooting for annexation,â&#x20AC;? Ridley says, still waiting for a crosswalk in front of her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but given the response to communities by most government agencies, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that I would be happy with annexation. I think I would be really sad. Because I would fear it would mean the beginning of the end of our neighborhood. Because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like a lot of concern for the neighborhood has been put into this whole process.â&#x20AC;? She hesitates to say it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been all about money,â&#x20AC;? she sighs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;right from the beginning.â&#x20AC;?

Napa joins Marin and Sonoma with drop-off sites for old meds By Juliane Poirier

6

eorge Washington had no idea when he crossed the Delaware that one day there would be concentrations of chemicals in the water sufficient to create a new American bass. Swimming in that river now is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;intersexâ&#x20AC;? fish, whose males carry the eggs. Weird. I wonder what those same chemicals and hormones in the water do to people. About 40 million Americans drink water contaminated by trace amounts of chemicals, from anti-seizure meds to psychotropics. Whether it gets passed first through someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urinary tract or poured into the sink or toilet, meds get into the water we will be drinking later. I used to presume that anything that went down the drain or into the sewer pipe from my house underwent a thorough scrubbing at the treatment plant and came out as good as new. But traditional wastewater-treatment facilities were designed to filter solid wastes, not narcotics. The most sophisticated watertreatment facility is not capable of removing all traces of drugs from the water, because many of the chemical compounds donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break down during the treatment process. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t despair. Just in time to help protect local waters comes the first National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day this Saturday, Sept. 25, and Napa has recently gone from zero to boasting three convenient drop-off sites. Thanks and congratulations to those who rallied to provide this service: Leadership Napa Valley, Clinic Ole, County of Napa Sanitation District and Santen, a Japanbased global pharmaceutical corporation with offices in Napa. And hats off to the grassroots volunteer organization Napa Valley Can Do for providing drivers to get the drugs to Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility on a weekly schedule. These movers and shakers know that keeping drugs out of the water is critical. But what they and others undertaking similar tasks in Sonoma and Marin counties have achieved is only a stop gap. And so is National Prescription TakeBack Day. Why? Because right now we are taking the meds back from the waterways and disposing of them as part of the total community waste burden. We pay for this. But hopefully, the burden of taking back will soon be where it should be, on the shoulders of the pharmaceutical companies, who, if we make it law, will be obliged to facilitate the disposal of the prescription medications properly and not in our landfills. They will pay. The outcome all

over the country will be safer water and more money in the town coffers. It will also mean no more drugs in the landfill. In Napa last year, I was instructed to put my unused pharmaceuticals in coffee grounds and throw them in the trash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that means they go to the landfill,â&#x20AC;? I protested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They leach out into the water table.â&#x20AC;? My complaint was met with silence. Europe and Canada are ahead of us in regulating pharmaceutical manufacturers. But in the United States, corporations are still not legally responsible for the end result of their products. Proper disposal of medications is very costly and should not be the burden of communities. Right now it is. So the best we can do is our part to keep the stuff out of the water and try to avoid getting poisoned or creating transsexual bass in our rivers. National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a step in the right direction, and I applaud everyone who made it happen. While awaiting true take-back legislation, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grab our old meds and participate!

$$ The authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal pickle jar, made with the litigable addition of (gasp!) water.

0A8;4E0DG

1Xc^UP?XRZ[T Promise you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sue me if I tell you how to make a really great jar of yum By Ari LeVaux

C

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference, with regard to pickle making, between what I would tell you and what I should tell you. The dichotomy is born of liability issues related to food safety. What I should tell you is what wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me sued, even if it means you get soggy pickles. What I probably shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention is what I do in the privacy of my own home, where the occasional rule is carefully bent in service of crispy pickles. The pickles in question are a mix of carrots and peppers. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been making, sharing, gifting and trading them for so long that in my food-hood theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re often referred to simply as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ari-style pickles.â&#x20AC;? These pickles are not only a cornerstone of my diet, they represent a year-round umbilical cord to summer. I use them strategically to complement the flavor of each mouthful; they add spice, acidity and local terroir, and are perfect for pairing with rich, fatty foods. In a procedure I call co-munching, I take a bite of the meal and chase it with a nibble of pickle to adjust the acid

and spice. Co-munching with pickled peppers is like adding a dash of hot sauce and a sip of wine to your meal. Like an aboriginal hunter utilizing every bit of his kill, I use the entire contents of my pickle jar. Once that jar is emptied of its veggies, I use the vinegar in salad dressing and make mustard from the vinegar-soaked mustard seeds at the bottom of the jar. I make roughly a hundred quarts of pickles every season. That may seem excessive, but a dinner party can wipe out a whole jar in a single night. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give some away and trade a bunch, too. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m left with a jar per week for normal consumption, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in good shape. I used to cut my carrots into long spears and leave the peppers whole, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found that I can get more stuff into the jars if I slice both carrots and peppers into rounds about half an inch thick. JalapeĂąos are the ultimate pepper for pickling with carrots, but other spicy, thick-fleshed species work too, such as Louisiana, Arledge and seĂąoritas. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unfamiliar with canning, or with

any of the canning terms that follow, read the directions that come with the Mason jar lids. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need a big kettle and some rubberized jar tongs for pulling the finished jars from the water. All of your equipment and your work environment should be kept clean, and your Mason jars, lids and rings should be sterilized before anything goes in them. Again, the lids will come with instructions on how to do this. Add a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon each of yellow and brown mustard seeds to the bottom of each quart jar. To make Mexicanstyle peppers and carrots, aka escabeche, add a tablespoon or sprig or two of oregano as well. Pack your washed and sliced peppers and carrots into jars as tightly and space-efficiently as possible. Be sure to leave a one-inch â&#x20AC;&#x153;headspaceâ&#x20AC;? between the veggies and the top of the jar. When the jars are packed, place the sterilized lids on them to keep out the invisible rain of microscopic riffraff. If you follow the USDA guide to canning, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see the agency recommends a brine of pure vinegar, rather than vinegar mixed with &+ THE BOHEMIAN

water. This will increase the acid content and further reduce the risk of spoilage but makes the pickles too vinegary for my taste. If you follow this road, consider increasing your sugar content. My brine is a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water, with the vinegar portion being equal parts cider and white wine vinegar. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying you should try this at home. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just sayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Heat your brine and add sugar to taste, a little at a time until it softens the edge of the brine but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually taste sweet. I use about half a cup of sugar for each gallon of my non-USDA-compliant brine.

If the lid is bulging or has lost its seal, toss the contents. Period.

When the brine reaches a boil, I turn the heat off and pour it into my packed jars. I pour it slowly so the hot liquid doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crack the glass jars, and cover the veggies with half an inch of brine so that another half-inch of headspace remains. Wipe the rims to remove any errant mustard seeds or oregano leaves, and then screw on the lids and rings. With canning tongs, place the hot jars into a kettle of boiling water deep enough to cover the jars by at least an inch. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to do this right away so the jars are still warm from the hot brine you just added when they enter the water. Once the water in the kettle returns to a boil, I let the jars process for five minutes and then remove them. The USDA says to put your veggies in the brine pot before you boil it, so they cook in the brine before going into jars. After packing and sealing the jars, according to the agency, you should then process for 15 minutes (unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at sea level, in which case 10 minutes is enough). After all of that cooking, your carrots will be soft enough to sip through a straw. But at least you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sue me for that. I feel comfortable taking on the extra risk of undercooking and under-vinegaring my pickles because I rely on home canningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important rule of all: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat from any jar that has lost its seal or whose lid does not display the telltale concavity that indicates a vacuum in the jar. If the lid is bulging or has lost its seal, toss the contents. Period. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that simple. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever bend this rule. After removing your jars from the water, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be serenaded by a jazz concert of pings as the lids seal, one by one. This music will be followed by a year-long encore of lipsmacking as you and your friends co-munch your way through summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleasures. So sue me.

24;41A0C8=6 BD3B n October 1810, Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King Ludwig married and decided to close the ceremony with horse races. Unbeknownst to Ludwig, he and the citizens of Munich had started an undying tradition. Each year, the celebration grew, and by 1818 it included rides and beer stands. By 1896, the rides multiplied and the beer stands had expanded into beer tents. Proud to hold up the mantle, the North Bay keeps that stalwart beerdrinking tradition alive.

I

Eager to begin its celebration, Iron Springs Pub (765-A Center Blvd. Fairfax; 415.485.1005) kicks off a month of festivities on Sept. 23 with a German-inspired menu. Along with the themed menu for the night, Iron Springs Pub will release its 2010 Oktoberfest ale. Silverado Brewing Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (3020 St. Helena Hwy., St. Helena; 707.967.9876) annual party starts Sept. 28 with a dinner featuring bockwurst, bratwurst, German potato salad and braised cabbage for $15. The Karl Lebherz Band perform and 10 percent of the proďŹ ts will go to charity. There will also be a brewerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner on Sept. 30 pairing a ďŹ ve-course German dinner with a selection of Silverado beers. Tickets for this dinner cost $45 and space is limited. German lunch and dinner specials will be offered daily through Oct. 3. Big Oktoberfest Bash is back for its third year in a row. Hosted by the Sonoma County Museum, this event features beer and food from 12 area vendors, a rafďŹ&#x201A;e, live bluegrass music and beer-making demonstrations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have more wineries on board this year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still doing a beer tasting, but we have more wineries to cater to the nonbeer drinkers out there,â&#x20AC;? says SCM staffer Sarah-Jane Wiseman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to get around 600 people this year. The more the merrier!â&#x20AC;? The fundraiser begins at 6pm on Friday, Oct. 8, at the Flamingo Hotel (2777 Fourth St., Santa Rosa; 707.579.1500). Tickets are $40 and proceeds beneďŹ t the Sonoma County and Charles M. Schulz museums.

?8=>C=>8A 5>A0;8CC;4 <>A4 ood news for fans of this popular grape, Pinot Noir priced $15 to $30 shows more reliable, varietal character for only a few bucks more than the selections from our last tasting (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swirl,â&#x20AC;? June 16). Better news yet, â&#x20AC;&#x153;suggested retailâ&#x20AC;? is just that. This week, we looked for widely available North Coast Pinot that offers the best value for a Jackson, plus or minus change. Blind-tasted and rated on a scale of 1 to 5.

G

Robert Mondavi 2008 Napa Valley, Carneros Pinto Noir ($27) From tea rose, mineral oil, dried rosemary and cherry aromas through typically varietal ďŹ&#x201A;avors of strawberry and cherry trending toward cranberry, this soft, fruity wine ďŹ nished ďŹ rmly and averaged out as the overall most satisfying choice. Rating: 3.75. Buena Vista Carneros 2006 Carneros Pinot Noir ($25) Candied aromas of açaĂ­ berry, strawberry jam, allspice, milk chocolate; jellied cherry and strawberry on the palate. For some, a little heat on the ďŹ nish, but nothing serious. Rating: 3.5. Gloria Ferrer 2006 Carneros Estate Pinot Noir ($22) Again with the strawberry conserves, this medium-light wine was also thought redolent of brandy, wet hay and vanilla, but the long, lingering ďŹ nish was the clincher. Rating: 3.3. Angeline 2009 California Pinot Noir ($16) Deephued but bright and agreeable, wet hay over cherry, raspberry and dried cherry. A chalky, dry ďŹ nish. Rating: 3.15. Clos du Bois 2008 North Coast Pinot Noir ($15) Medium-dark, stingy aromas of violet, cherry and grape jelly, forest ďŹ&#x201A;oor, sage. Dried cherry ďŹ&#x201A;avors leaves sour cherry and plum on the palate. Rating: 3. Pedroncelli 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($18) Oak, brown spice and vanilla-cherry cola with a slightly syrupy mouth-feel. Our impressions were split between â&#x20AC;&#x153;really interestingâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;too heavy.â&#x20AC;? Raspberry, cherry cola and carob made this stand apart from its Carneros brethren. Rating: 3. Waterstone 2007 Carneros Pinot Noir ($22) This light, bright-hued wine had aromas of cinnamon, raisin and dried cherry, and maybe a little too much heat. Rating: 2.5. Toad Hollow 2007 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($18) Was it oak and moss, Grappa and pine sap, or Band-Aid aromas that undermined this gentlemanly herptileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s otherwise sound hooch? Still, dried raspberry and dried cherry with decent acidity and astringency. Rating: 2.5. Clos du Bois Sonoma Coast Reserve Pinot Noir ($26) Initial aromas of hay, barnyard or overripe banana, with indeterminate dark ďŹ&#x201A;avors, this seems designed primarily with color and structure in mind. Not as immediately appealing as this wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Coast Pinot. Score: 2.15.

BC0=3D?10B4 Matthew Gollub uses jazz patterns to give kids a fun, rhythmic literary foundation.

1dVb1^^VXT3^f] Matthew Gollub promises to raise a joyful noise at the SC Book Fest By Sara Jane Pohlman

F

hen authors are asked to read an excerpt from their recent works, most require little more than a microphone or a chair. Not so for Matthew Gollub. He needs an entire ensemble to express the musicality and rhythm of his most recent book, Jazz Fly 2: The Jungle Pachanga ($17.95; Tortuga Press). Fortunately, there is plenty of room where most of Gollubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gigs take place: in elementary school auditoriums. Jazz Fly 2 is set in a South American jungle and tells the story of a band of insect musicians making their way to a party in a termite nest. The story introduces several percussion instruments, like bongos, congas and maracas, as well as Spanish vocabulary and short phrases. In Spanish, pachanga means â&#x20AC;&#x153;dance party,â&#x20AC;? a definition Gollub takes to heart when performing the book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before I get going on a story like this, I kind of familiarize the audience with certain words and I explain that the chants in this book are one part Spanish and one part jazz,â&#x20AC;? Gollub says. Gollub will be on hand at the Sonoma County Book Festival with a number of his

musician friends to perform his book, as will be Karen Hanke, who illustrated both books in the Jazz Fly series. He will be featured in the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner along with Lewis Buzbee (Stienbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ghost) and Camille Picott (Raggedy Chan). The festival began 11 years ago with a group of book-loving people looking for an outlet to celebrate literature. Since then, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grown into the largest book festival in the North Bay. This year will see a full day of book signings, prose and poetry readings and authors waiting to be met, including Alta If land (Elegy for a Fabulous World), Yiyun Li (The Vagrants), Abraham Verghese (Cutting for Stone) and others. Outside of the festival, Gollub enjoys giving extended school presentations for the opportunity they provide to perform for an educated audience. Students and teachers spend weeks before an assembly reading Gollubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books in class and at the library, arming themselves with knowledge of his history and bibliography to get the most out of the encounter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a school scenario, everybody knows each other, so things are a little bit looser than in a public environment,â&#x20AC;? he says. In return, Gollub gets the most out of his audiences with continuous interaction.

He entreats children to repeat and chant certain lines to tell the story along with him. Volunteers in the form of teachers are brought onstage to act out characters while he keeps a rhythm on drums. Students are known to burst with laughter at the sight of their authority figures following orders instead of giving them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids are used to being told what to do all the time, so for them itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really rich to see their teachers being told what to do,â&#x20AC;? he says. Setting stories to music is not so much a creative process as it is an expression of the way Gollub thinks. For him, reading and writing are inextricably bound to rhythm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got rhythms going in my head as I write,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reading, I am sounding things out and pondering the cadence of different words, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m paying attention to plosive consonants like p and k versus soft consonants like l and v.â&#x20AC;? The Santa Rosa resident considers himself f luent in four languages: English, Spanish, Japanese and jazz. He draws inspiration for his books from the many trips heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken to Japan, Mexico and South America since he was a teen. The engaging stories become a vehicle to introduce multilingual vocabulary and encourage literacy among children '' THE BOHEMIAN

who might not otherwise be exposed to it. Gollub estimates that just over 50 percent of American families read to their kids and believes passionately that this is not enough. For Gollub, parents are responsible for modeling literacy by reading magazines or newspapers, or even going to the library or bookstore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m convinced if kids are being read to at home, if they live in an environment where reading customs are observed, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be in much better shape,â&#x20AC;? he says. Among lower socioeconomic families, Gollub says that parents often have to be assured that sitting down with a child and reading is valuable, even if the adultâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own literacy skills are low. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even enforcing in the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind which way the pages turn is important. The point is to teach children to value books,â&#x20AC;? Gollub says. His ideal society is one in which children have more options, and he is adamant that an increase in childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literacy is a major step along that path. Gollubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one nonfiction title is Give the Gift! 10 Fulfilling Ways to Raise a Lifetime Reader ($15.95; Tortuga Press), which was selected as a 2007 USA Book News award finalist in the parenting category alongside massive educational tomes. It gives tips and tricks for parents to instill literacy customs in their families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to chuckle when it came out,â&#x20AC;? Gollub says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went head to head with 400-page, fine-print books, and this is a 32page picture book for parents. It basically looks like comics. I thought it was great that educators saw the value of it.â&#x20AC;? Along with authors, the book festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner will feature Paws for Reading buddy dogs to lend a nonjudgmental ear to early readers, a Laura Ingalls Wilder impersonator and face painting. Because the festival is a free event, the only paid employee is festival director Melissa Kelley. Around two dozen volunteers work to plan the festival, but it takes 50 to make it happen on the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our volunteers are fantastic,â&#x20AC;? Kelley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many have done this for years.â&#x20AC;? The Literary Arts Guild provides the main backing for the event, and local businesses and individual sponsors fill in the gaps. The Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition offers free valet bike parking, while the Downtown Merchants Association is sponsoring a sidewalk sale as well as live music on Fourth Street. The organizers are looking to attract book lovers, but they are also reaching out to those who may not be so enamored with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want anyone whose lives would be enriched by books. I think that covers everybody,â&#x20AC;? Kelley says.

Though constructed from familiar theatrical elements, and filled with stories and characters borrowed from Spanish literature and African mythology, the resulting three-play mashup is almost certainly unlike anything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen onstage before. Alternately lyrical, lovely, coarse, crude, heartbreaking, magical and wonderfully weird, McCraneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is energized by countless uniquely inventive decisions, employing rhythmic breath percussion, semiritualistic staging of scenes, unapologetically spiritual images and characters who speak their own stage directions to powerful and sometimes hilarious effect (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enter Shangoâ&#x20AC;?; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elegba moansâ&#x20AC;?; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama Moja sighs, finally giving in to the little fuckerâ&#x20AC;?). Over the last few years, McCraney, who will turn 30 in October, has become a serious international sensation, winning awards and commissions around the world. He is a member of the D Projects Theater Company in Miami and Steppenwolf in Chicago, and in 2008, at the age of 27, was playwright-in-residence with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In a first-time-ever collaboration between three award-winning theater groupsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Marin Theatre Company, Magic Theatre and A.C.T.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; McCraneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full trilogy is being staged over the next several weeks, giving Bay Area audiences a rare opportunity to catch the playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fully realized vision. First out of the gate is In the Red and Brown Water, running through Oct. 3 at MTC and directed by Ryan Rilette. On a deceptively

simple set, a square platform at the center of a bare stage, nine actors stomp, clap, sigh, breathe, laugh, singâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and watch, as McCraneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bittersweet story unfolds in what he poetically describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the distant present.â&#x20AC;? Oya (played with gradually evaporating dignity by Lakisha May) lives with her mother in a housing project in the fictional Louisiana town of San Pere. Known for her speed as a high school track runner, Oya dreams of escape from the poverty and low expectations that define her community. Fate has other plans for Oya, as we guess when her childhood friend Elegba (a mesmerizing Jared McNeill) recounts a haunting dream in which he is baptized in red and brown waterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;brown from the river mud, red from Oyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bloodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as the young woman floats by to the music of skeletal â&#x20AC;&#x153;bone people.â&#x20AC;? When her mother (Nicol Foster) grows ill, Oya is forced to make a decision that forever changes the course of her life, threatening to doom her to a fate as someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, mistress or mother. It is Oyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing desire to have a child of her ownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with McCraney borrowing elements of Lorcaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yermaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that sets up the primary conflicts of the play. The entire cast is excellent, fulfilling the demanding requirements of the script with energy, passion and physical grace. The fusion of McCraneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision, director Riletteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensitive staging and the actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; commitment, adds up to an experience that is wholly one-ofa-kind, from the first ominous breath to the beautiful and devastating final images. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In the Red and Brown Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday through Oct. 10 at the Marin Theatre Company, 397 Miller Ave., Mill Valley.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mademoiselle Chambonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shows marriageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mortar By Richard von Busack

8

n visualizing a sense of the livelong day of work, and in providing details of life in towns thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never be confused with Paris, director StĂŠphane BrizĂŠ has made a first-rate romance in Mademoiselle Chambon. The film is based on a 2001 novel by the French writer Ă&#x2030;ric Holder. Without any false nationalism, this is insistently a French tale: weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shown a woman who works at an industrial printer making informational pamphlets about France; her husband and the unmarried woman who intrigues him are posed standing in front of a wall-sized map of the country in a school classroom. At the end, we hear a song that epitomizes what people think of as typically French music, a tune by the one-named chanteuse Barbara titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Septembre (Quel Joli Temps).â&#x20AC;? Somewhere in a small city along the Toulon-Paris train line, we see a no-longeryoung construction worker, Jean (Vincent Lindon), demolishing a house, and we see his wife, Anne-Marie (Aure Atika), at her assembly line. Later, the two join up with their son, picnicking as he tries to puzzle out a tricky grammar question from a school assignment. At a show-and-tell day at his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, Jean is asked to explain his work to a classroom of eager kids. The camera focuses on the intense elementary school teacher, the rootless and 40-ish mademoiselle Veronique Chambon (the ever poised Sandrine Kiberlain) â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and we see it, a coup de foudre: sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fallen in love. It takes somewhat longer for Jean to get it, after Chambon hires him to repair the windows of her flat. While there, Jean notes her violin and coaxes her to play a song for him. Without telling us outright, BrizĂŠ suggests why thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something missing in the teacher. The loneliness thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hollowed her out is likely connected to some dashed hopes of being a classical violinist. Music

brings Jean and Veronique together across their social divide, as they sit side by side on an iron daybed. The movie is as balanced as a good argument. BrizĂŠ pays all respects to Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage and home. Anne-Marie is a good mom, a trim, pretty woman without pretense and with a sense of humor, seen in the evening beating her son at the card game Uno while eating Nutella out of a jar with a spoon. BrizĂŠ contrasts this domesticity with the hard work thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s required to maintain it: the bricks laid, the swings of a sledgehammer against a wall. Like many in the construction business, Jean does it because his father (Jean-Marc Thibault) did it. One of Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasks is tending to the old man, who is too beaten by age and labor to wash his own feet. Meanwhile, he and Anne-Marie prepare for the fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming 80th birthday, who celebrates this anniversary by buying himself a coffin. Jean and his father linger in the tatty display room of the funeral home, apparently lined with bedspreads and bed sheets. Finally, the old man points one out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that the box we buried your mother in?â&#x20AC;? Amid this suggestion of impending death, of possibilities slipping away, BrizĂŠ seems to falter at the end of the film. But he makes us feel the temptation and terror of an affair. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much tension in a final scene at the railway station that there might as well be a bomb ticking in it. BrizĂŠ says that he made an infinitely sentimental film despite his hatred of sentimentality. Mademoiselle Chambon is a tragedy too sad to weep at (though the song by Barbara may push you over the edge). The complexities and depths give this film a vigor that belies the lightweight-sounding story. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mademoiselle Chambonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Sept. 24, at the Smith Rafael Film Center, 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. 415.454.1222.

Unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got tickets to see the pennantracing Giants play that day, there is no understandable reason for missing out on the fantastic Third Annual 2010 Great West End & Railroad Square Handcar Regatta & Exposition of Mechanical & Artistic Wonders, otherwise known as the Handcar Regatta. For the uninitiated, the Regatta is the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foremost cultural hodgepodge of all things wildly imaginative, including but hardly limited to art, music, costume, magic, vaudeville, marching bands and sculpture. The Regattaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raison dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ĂŞtre is ostensibly the foot- and hand-powered vehicles of all crazy design barreling down the railroad tracks, but the carnival atmosphere surrounding the races is worth the price of admission alone. Oh, you hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard? Yes, the Regatta is charging admission this year. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the great thing: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only $1. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss it on Sunday, Sept. 26, at Depot Park. Railroad Square, Santa Rosa. 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. $1. www.handcar-regatta.com.

Over 50 years ago, the pun-toting jazzman Mose Allison first laid out his cerebral troubles in a song called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost Mind.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you could be so kind / To help me find my mind,â&#x20AC;? he deadpanned in trademark bluesy inf lection, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to thank you in advance.â&#x20AC;? Now 82, the wry pianist and singer appears to have finally unearthed his elusive treasure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Brainâ&#x20AC;? opens his most recent album, The Way of the World, and in copping the form and melody of â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Babe,â&#x20AC;? a hit for Little Walter, he sings, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My brain is always ticking, my brain / Long as I am alive and kicking.â&#x20AC;? The album is recorded with an organic, warm tone and is another success for his new home, Anti-Records, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve regenerated the careers of Merle Haggard, Bettye LaVette, Rocky Erickson and Mavis Staples. Allison is always on the road, playing with pick-up bands in each city, and he plays an afternoon show on Sunday, Sept. 26, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 4pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$30. 707.226.7372.

As the son of novelist Larry McMurtry, the terrifically somber guitarist and singer James McMurtry has a rich DNA when it comes to words. From the poignant vignette of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chocataw Bingoâ&#x20AC;? to the stunning recession rant of â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Make It Here,â&#x20AC;? McMurtry captures details to paint an often bleak portrait of life in America. (An early album was titled Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d You Hide the Body.) McMurtry headlines this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EarleFest, an annual concert presented by the Earle Baum Center for the Blind, but causing an equal amount of excitement is the presence on the bill of Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women. With a crackerjack all-female band including fiddler Laurie Lewis and dobro and steel-guitar master Cindy Cashdollar, who played on Bob Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Time Out of Mind album, Alvin is in especially fine form. The Belleville Outfit, St. Peterbilt, Tone Bent and Three at Last open on Saturday, Sept. 25, at he Earle Baum Center. 4539 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa. Noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;7pm. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.523.3222.

Famed Irish author Eoin Colfer has penned nine books in the celebrated Artemis Fowl series. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completed three standalone novels. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even taken up Douglas Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hitchhikerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guide to the Galaxy duties, writing a sixth novel in the series. With over 9 million Artemis Fowl books sold and with the original Artemis Fowl still No. 7 on the New York Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bestseller list, Colfer is basically another J. K. Rowling. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just released Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex, and to celebrate he brings his tales on the road with a show called Artemis Rocks. Yes, Colfer will be singing and rocking live and onstage between videos, onstage interviews and audience Q&As. Even Artemis himself is promised to be there when Colfer dazzles the kids on Sunday, Sept. 26, at Osher Marin Jewish Community Center. 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael. Noon. $27; includes signed book. 415.927.0960.

Edgar Meyer on the rare and overlooked beauty of the double bass sing an unscientific study of the classical performing world, there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t many double bassists performing solo pieces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bass is not the most natural classical solo instrument,â&#x20AC;? Edgar Meyer, one of the presentday exceptions and a master of the double bass, tells me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, it is a relatively unexposed voice, and therefore can reveal unexpected pleasures. Also, in recent years, partially because of close miking in recordings and amplification, partially because of gradual advances in the general listenability of bass playing, and also the leadership of some significant creative forces on the instrument in the second half of the 20th century, more people are becoming aware of that voice. However, when the heart of the classical repertoire was written, the bass wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thought of at all as a solo instrument, probably with good reason. Lack of great repertoire is the biggest obstacle.â&#x20AC;? Lack of repertoire is also the reason Meyer chose in 2000 to record Bachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Unaccompanied Cello Suites on the double bass, a mammoth undertaking of technique. As one of the few able to bridge the requisite gap between dexterous physicality and tonal quality in solo bass pieces, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bass concerto,â&#x20AC;? Meyer says knowingly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;will of course live or die based on the successful execution of these tasks.â&#x20AC;? This weekend, Meyer performs one of the few existing concertos for double bass, Giovanni Bottesiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Concerto for String Bass no. 2 in B Minor, and chances are that no greater display of artistry will be occurring at the same time within a hundred-mile radius. Easily the present dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular virtuoso of the instrument due to his crossover collaborations with James Taylor, Alison Krauss and Chris Thile, Meyer promises that classical music is still his â&#x20AC;&#x153;home base,â&#x20AC;? lauds Bottesini as writing for the bass â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a way that only a remarkable player could have conceivedâ&#x20AC;? and cites Mozart, Bach and Beethoven as his heroes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However,â&#x20AC;? he adds, unable to overlook the role of the upright bass in jazz, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do have hundreds of other musical heroes, and some of them are nonclassical bass players. My father played me a record of Ray Brown when I was a young child and told me that that is how you play the bass. He was right. I could make a list of 50 bass players that have had an impact on me, living and dead, but I am glad that Ron Carter is still alive.â&#x20AC;?

A three-person band stays on its game by staying on the road By Anna Schuessler

sk Pete Bernhard why the Devil Makes Three have been on an eightyear streak, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the trioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to leave town every now and then. Known for razorsharp, witty lyrics and a punkgrass country sound, the band has found that sometimes a simple change in location is the best way to keep it fresh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps to tour in new places; I think that keeps it kind of fun,â&#x20AC;? says Bernhard. Together with guitarist Cooper McBean and upright bassist Lucia Turino, the Devil Makes Three have made sure to keep it fun for their listeners as well. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound, which often includes a banjo or fiddle, is less defined by a genre and more defined by the reaction it elicits from those who come to see the group perform. And it seems like the band hardly has to encourage any sort of reaction from its fansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when the three are playing, bodies are moving. Between the true-to-life character sketches that Bernhard incorporates into his lyrics and the pulsing rhythms that rock their concert venues, the Devil Makes Three attract a crowd that spans all age brackets. Bernhard attributes the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to hold a younger audience to its upbeat tempo and rock-show atmosphere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put on a fun live show,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play a lot of fast songs, [and] the environment of our show is kind of like a punk show.â&#x20AC;?

Bernhard may classify the style in which the band performs, but characterizing the Devil Makes Threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genre is another story. Blogs and fans laud the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound as the perfect combination of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gypsy-folk, pirate-camp and whiskey whoreâ&#x20AC;? or a â&#x20AC;&#x153;blend of bluegrass, primitive country music, folk, rockabilly, Piedmont blues, ragtime and a hint of punk.â&#x20AC;? Which may be why the frontman is reluctant to say exactly to which musical genre his band pledges its allegiance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to not be grouped. I think it makes people more interested in seeing us,â&#x20AC;? he says. So far, defying the confines of any category has worked well for the group, which also enjoys the small-scale pleasures of a realistic tour schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sort of a do-it-yourself kind of band, [and] we have a small record label, so we get to decide when we want to play and when we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to play,â&#x20AC;? Bernhard says. Wary of the 200plus gig tours that result in many a bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burnout, the singer says the group is able to continue churning out feet-stomping tunes by keeping its yearly schedule to no more than a hundred performances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a lot when you think of it in months, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too much,â&#x20AC;? he says. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough that the Devil Makes Three are leaving towns all the time, though. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just hope itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for good.

<0BB8E40CC02:

Is there anything Margaret Cho canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do? argaret Cho is everywhere. Over on the Lifetime channel, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing the wry sidekick to the thingirl-trapped-by-an-angel-in-a-fat-womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-body also known as Drop Dead Diva. On basic cable, she joins Bristol Palin, Florence Henderson, Michael Bolton, that Jersey Shore dude and several other oddly brave celebs for Dancing with the Stars. On disc, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just released a comedy song album, Cho Dependent, that finds her paired with everyone from swoon sisters Tegan and Sara to dope comic Tommy Chong to fine-art musician Andrew Bird in a series of silly spoof songs that send up every genre from rap to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dead!â&#x20AC;? teen-jerkers of the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s. And onstage, she brings her standup act through the North Bay as part of a new three-month tour, landing in Napa on Sept. 26. Cho was just on the road last year for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beautiful,â&#x20AC;? a standup routine based on the strangeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if you live in L.A., at leastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;premise that deciding one is beautiful is plenty good enough, even if not everyone agrees with you. This year, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to other familiar topics, talking about her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including her beleaguered motherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and riffing on what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to live in Peachtree, Ga., where Drop Dead Diva is filmed, for half of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really about being super-progressive and living in a community that is not,â&#x20AC;? Cho says, speaking by phone from her L.A. home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That community is the capital of the Southern tea party, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really different.â&#x20AC;? Cho, who proudly claims to be able to pick up a dollar bill with her butt, shimmy through a burlesque routine and fake it through a belly dance number, never really learned to dance. While she allows that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very proud of her new standup show, on this afternoon at least, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most loquacious about her Dancing with the Stars gig. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always want to lead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to not want to lead and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very feminist problem,â&#x20AC;? she says of ballroom dancing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a strong woman, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very difficult to relinquish control. It takes another kind of a power to be able to relinquish that control because you actually arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t relinquishing. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually manning the other side. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just really fascinating, the gender roles break down and yet at the same time you see how powerful you really are. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really profound.â&#x20AC;? But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled into thinking that Cho has gone all philosophical on us. When asked during a recent CNN interview if she was inspired by Madonnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitar playing to grab her own axe for Cho Dependent, the comic deadpanned: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw her pick up a guitar and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How hard could it be if that bitch can do it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Margaret Cho keeps it real on Sunday, Sept. 26, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$60. 707.259.0123. Gretchen Giles

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fat Pigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Travels with My Auntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; premiere pair of highly acclaimed plays open this weekend at two different theater companies, and though separated thematically by decades, each show examines the power of public opinion on personal choices, blending hard truths with a sense of fierce, funny invention. Travels with My Aunt, adapted by Scottish playwright Giles Havergal from Graham Greeneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved novel, traces the emotional de-frosting of Henry (Benjamin Privitt, above), a stiff British banker, as his life is stirred and shaken by the arrival of his life-loving Aunt Augusta. Her very existenceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not to mention her various illegal activities and exotic love lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;force Henry into a new view of the world, and of himself. The play, directed by Ken Ruta, begins a month-long run at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cinnabar Theater, which this season is adding a number of clever discount programs designed to reach out to new audiences (see below). Meanwhile, Sonoma County Repertory Theater presents Neil LaButteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much-talked-about comedy-drama Fat Pig, about the relationship between Tom, a handsome young executive, and Helen, the attractive, plus-sized woman he falls for. Directed by Susannah Martin, the play has been praised for its unflinching realism and compassion, as Tom finds himself caught between his own feelings and peer-pressure taunts of his friends and co-workers. The show opens this weekend, with discounted previews beginning Wednesday. Travels with My Aunt runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 25Oct. 17, at Cinnabar Theater, 3333 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. Friday-Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. $25. Discounts: $15 for people under 30; $22 for seniors; $10 for teens aged 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;19 on Friday, Oct. 8. 707.763.8920. Fat Pig runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, Sept. 22-Oct. 24 at Sonoma County Repertory Theater, 104 N. Main St., Sebastopol. 8pm. $25. Discounts: Two pay-what-youcan nights on Thursday, Oct 14 and 21; $20 seniors and students; $15 preview seats on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 22 and 23. 707.823.0177.
