<X]^aXchAT_^ac Catalyzing job growth with minority-owned businesses
By David Hinson
he federal government just revealed that private-sector firms created 159,000 new jobs in October. The unemployment rate, however, remains persistently high, at 9.6 percent. Policymakers continue to search for ways to help those looking for work find jobs. The minority business community should be at the center of that conversation. Minority firms have been an engine of job growth for the U.S. economy, outpacing growth within the general business community, for most of the last decade. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people employed at minority-owned businesses jumped 27 percentâ€”from 4.7 million to 5.9 millionâ€” between 2002 and 2007. Job growth for non-minorityowned firms was less than 1 percent during that time. In those five years, the number of minority-owned firms in the U.S. grew 46 percent, to 5.8 million. Meanwhile, the number of firms in the overall economy expanded at less than half that rate. The revenue of minority-owned businesses is also growing much faster than that of nonminority-owned businesses. Between 2002 and 2007, minority-owned firmsâ€™ revenue jumped 56 percent to $1 trillion annually. At nonminority firms, receipts were up just 21 percent, although average gross receipts for nonminority-owned firms remain much larger than those of minority-owned firms. Minority businesses are emerging as leading exporters, too. They exported to 41 countries on six continents between 1992 and 2009. Minority firms are twice as likely to generate sales through exports as nonminority firms. With these figures in mind, thereâ€™s no doubt that minority entrepreneurs will lead the American business communityâ€™s charge to double its exports within the next five years, as the presidentâ€™s National Export Initiative has challenged. Yet while minority-owned businesses are growing at a breakneck pace, disparities continue to exist between minority- and nonminority-owned firms. Only 800,000 of Americaâ€™s nearly 6 million minority firms have more than one employee. The annual revenue for the average minority-owned firm is about $300,000 less than that of a nonminorityowned firm. Closing the entrepreneurial revenue gap between minority- and nonminority-owned businesses based on the
share of the adult minority population could add $2.5 trillion to our nationâ€™s economic output, create 11.8 million more American jobs and unleash the innovation of a longundervalued economic sector. Corporate America can strengthen its efforts to make minority-owned businesses a larger part of its global supply chain, and minority business owners can and should do a better job of embracing aggressive growth models and capitalizing on opportunities for alliances, mergers and strategic partnerships. The most successful minorityowned businesses in this country have embraced aggressive models to join the upper echelons of the American economyâ€”and have created thousands of jobs in the process. Many of the largest blackand Hispanicowned businesses were created through mergers, acquisitions or joint investment projects. For instance, McDonaldâ€™s collaborated with a Hispanic entrepreneur to form Lopez Foods, a top supplier that now generates $500 million annually in revenue. Johnson Controls partnered with a minority management team to create Bridgewater Interiorsâ€”now a billion-dollar company. And more than 20 years ago, Coca-Cola partnered with a minority investment group to create the Philadelphia Coca-Cola Bottling Company. Minority-owned firms donâ€™t have to pursue these growth strategies blindly. The Minority Business Development Agency at the U.S. Department of Commerce supports more than 40 business centers nationwide to help minority-owned firms secure access to capital, contracts and assistance in entering growing foreign markets. As we look for ways to create more jobs, shining a light on the economic potential of the minority business community can significantly benefit the American people and economy. Minority businesses are creating jobs at a rate faster than nonminority owned businesses of similar size and are an increasingly important source of economic opportunity for all Americans.
The minority business community can significantly benefit the American economy.

14CC4A;0C4C70==4E4A I am writing this letter to express my opinion on Proposition 8. I am so disappointed by this selfish proposition and our constitutional rights of voting in the United States. Prop. 8 passed because of some people that complained that same-sex marriage is a sin and should only be between a male and a female. No one had any right to interfere with same-sex marriage or to judge them. There are Christians that are true and loving to God in a nonjudgmental way to accept people the way they are. These types of churches allow other types of people who are different in any lifestyleâ€”if they believe in God or not, or even if they are gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual or trans. Everyone, no matter how they are born or created, has a right to have a marriage, even if it is
a same-sex marriage. If God says â€œdonâ€™t judge your neighbor,â€? then donâ€™t. It is a sin to judge or control other peopleâ€™s lives. This terrible proposition is hypocritical and discriminating. What happened to same-sex marriage that passed fair and square the first time? It passed by law, then was taken away with discriminatory behavior by people who it doesnâ€™t really concern. These people need to focus on their own lives if they are so set in thinking that there is only one type of marriage. They are terribly wrong. If they canâ€™t see it differently, then they are blind. Same-sex marriage is anyoneâ€™s right. Their love is also real. Accept their personal lives as you would your very own.
The recent withdrawal of the diet drug Meridia from all markets is the latest setback in the long and frustrating quest for a pharmaceutical solution to our obesity epidemic. Drug companies have spent millions of dollars on research and development, but none of the diet drugs on the market are considered very effective. Some are even dangerous. Unfortunately, obesity is the number one public health problem in our community and for our nationâ€”one-third of our population is obese. Itâ€™s responsible for heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and other chronic diseases, accounting for millions of premature deaths annually. Causes of obesity include consumption of fatladen meat and dairy products and inadequate exercise. The failure of the drug industry to come up with a quick fix adds emphasis to the diet/exercise solution, which is particularly critical during childhood years, when lifestyle habits become lifelong addictions. We need to adopt some healthy changes to solve this crisis. Letâ€™s start by replacing meat and dairy products in our diet with wholesome grains, vegetables and fruits, and adopt a regular exercise program. We must insist our schools introduce wholesome meal choices for our children, because they are our future.
In our Dec. 29 issue (read: between eggnog and Champagne), the production of A Christmas Carol mentioned in David Templetonâ€™s â€œTop 10 Torn Ticketsâ€? was erroneously credited to the Sixth Street Playhouseâ€”who are great! But who, as is evident in our current and vivid sobriety, never presented any such play in 2010. The honor should have been duly credited to the also-great, big-warm-hug folks at the marvelous Imaginists Theatre Collective. The Bohemian regrets the error.

=>CC7418664BC50=B Interestingly, the opponents to a test run of wind power in Marin are largely environmentalists.
Guess whoâ€™s wound up over wind power in West Marin? By Bruce Robinson
he proposal was for two thin towers, 197 feet tall and 10 inches in diameter at their base, on two remote west Marin ridgelines, a mile and a half apart and northeast of Dillon Beach. With meteorological testing gear, digital transmitters and a small solar panel mounted to each tower, the temporary installations were sought by NextEra Energy Resources to gather data about the potential of the region for wind area production. Permits for the three-year test project were routinely issued by the Marin County Deputy Zoning Administrator on Aug. 26. And a gale of protest promptly erupted. A group of nine people, including leaders of the Marin Audubon Society, the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin and the Marin Conservation League, quickly appealed to the Marin County Planning Commission to rescind the permits.
They charge that the project is in violation of state environmental law and would endanger birds and bats, create a visual blight on the landscape, pose a hazard to rescue helicopters, interfere with radar from the Two Rock Coast Guard station and expose neighboring residents to â€œwind turbine syndrome.â€? Outside of the countyâ€™s standard review process, the wind turbine detractors emphasize two other arguments: that the companies seeking to build them are pocketing huge wads of taxpayer money and then building installations that fail to deliver on promises of â€œgreen energy.â€? NextEra, the company seeking the temporary test project in Marin, is a Florida-based, multibillion dollar corporation that operates dozens of wind farms across North America, including Altamont Pass. â€œThe wind-farm business is an immense folly inf licted on a gullible public by big business, with the collusion of big government,
at enormous expense to the environment, with shockingly little energy benefit,â€? fumed project opponent Christopher Barnes in a guest column published last month in the West Marin Citizen. â€œThe wind-energy companies are thriving because of a new stimulus thatâ€™s been created to provide on the order of $800 million for energy production,â€? elaborates Chips Armstrong, owner of a Petaluma auto repair shop and one of the nine Marin appellants. â€œTheyâ€™re getting several times the subsidies that anything else is gettingâ€”oil, coal, natural gas, geothermal and other forms of energy. Yet they are producing, in California, 1.3 percent of the power demand. And these companies are making hundreds of millions of dollars.â€? â€œThe whole notion that this is somehow a boondoggle, that this is subsidized by government, is absurd,â€? counters Dave Erikson. As a Sebastopol-based â€œlowcarbon energy consultantâ€? and former & %

staff member at the Climate Protection Campaign, Erickson points out that under Californiaâ€™s green energy law, utilities are actually required â€œto buy more renewals, and it has to be at a certain price point. Unless they can build that so that their costs are lower than what they can get on the market, theyâ€™re not going to do it. â€œIt all has to do,â€? he continues, â€œwith electricity being a fungible commodity in California.â€? Erickson theorizes that the Marin Energy Authority might be an eager customer for wind power generated locally within the county. But Armstrong is not persuaded, and further contends that wind power is not green. â€œA lot of the big turbines actually start with electricity,â€? he says. â€œSo you have a carbon footprint thatâ€™s created by putting â€™em in. Then you have a carbon footprint thatâ€™s created by the equipment that has to be there to back â€™em up when they donâ€™t work. So if you do the math, as a lot of people have, thereâ€™s no real savings from the standpoint of a carbon footprint. In fact, it almost could be negative. â€œTo say nothing of the fact that thereâ€™s no net power created, relative to anything else,â€? Armstrong continues. â€œAll 13,000 wind turbines in the state of California can be matched with one 550 megawatt gas generator.â€? â€œThis is extreme nonsense,â€? retorts Dave Erickson. â€œThe bottom line with wind is thereâ€™s no fuel. The fuel is free.â€? â€œWind is a commercially viable source of renewable energy,â€? adds Barry Vesser, deputy director of the Climate Protection Campaign. â€œItâ€™s being deployed all over the world, including many places in the United States, at scale. The vulnerability of wind is its intermittency, but there are ways to deal with that,â€? Vesser says, citing storage and supplementing with other power sources. There are also encouraging developments for the birds, who have been injured and killed by older turbines. A recent legal settlement will require NextEra to replace 2,400 turbines in Altamont Pass â€œwith newer models that are more efficient, generate more power, and are less harmful to eagles, falcons and other birds,â€? according to thenâ€“attorney general Jerry Brown. David Williard, cofounder of Sage Renewables in Inverness, sees the early site of Altamont as the source of much of wind powerâ€™s bad reputation. â€œThey didnâ€™t really know what they were doing when they developed Altamont, but we learned a heck of a lot from the mistakes that they made up there. We just donâ€™t see the issues with bird kills like they did in the â€™80s. But the public perception is that these are just big birdkilling machines, which theyâ€™re really not.â€? Back in San Rafael, the nine opponentsâ€™ appeal was upheld, 5-2 by the Marin Planning Commission, only to be reversed again in mid-December on a 4-0 vote by county supervisors. Bird mortality will be monitored while the towers are in place. And it may all be moot. â€œI seriously have some reservations about whether or not theyâ€™re going to find the wind that they needâ€? to proceed with a largescale wind farm, observes Williard. â€œI doubt that they will.â€?

urging junk from our lives is instinctual at the dawn of a new year. To move forward and embrace change, we naturally let go of items we donâ€™t need and pass them along to othersâ€”especially things that might bring joy to those who have less than we do. But this year there is a fantastically greater payoff to purging certain excess stuff in our livesâ€”namely, cameras (even separate parts such as bodies and lenses) and GPS systems. Our donations of working cameras and GPS units could literally help save lives in developing countries, improve air and water quality, provide ecoemployment, advance biological science, document â€œnewâ€? species and add to the much-needed data supporting herpetological biodiversity. Reptile and Amphibian Ecology International (RAEI) is a nonprofit conservation group collecting donations of household cameras and GPS devices (and a few nonhousehold items, such as snake equipment) that will be put to use in remote areas of Ecuador, Mexico and Cameroon by scientists and trained laypersons doing field work. â€œThis gear is important, because we document biodiversity with cameras,â€? says Paul Hamilton, director of RAEI. â€œWe are a small organization, but a lot of what we do is capacity-building, giving people the tools to work on their own.â€? All biodiversity field work is urgent in these times. But because the frog is an indicator speciesâ€”an equivalent to the canary in the coal mine, whose ability to stay alive indicated the likelihood of survival for the workersâ€”information about frogs and their brethren is particularly critical. Not only can it suggest how long we may survive, but it is the kind of data that can be used by, for and against governments deciding whether or not a natural resource is saved or plundered. Collecting this data is a real challenge, because time is so short, the stakes are so high and funding is so poor. This is where our old technological stuff can really helpâ€”if we send it off to RAIE. Cameras are used to provide the proof of a speciesâ€™ existence and to document the conditions of their ecosystem, which
is the region wherein a species can survive in complex, interconnected relationships. When these areas get simplified by human interference, life-sustaining systems collapse. When rainforests are cleared, for example, entire populations can be wiped out, as can all the species whose existence depended on the forest for survival. The genius of this new donation program is that armed with our old cameras and GPS units, professional and trained field workers will be able to cover far more ground than ever before; they will have the tools they need out in remote areas to get many more ecosystems mapped, measured and documented. An example offered by RAIE is the work done by 37-yearold Carlos Robles, who works as an ecoguide in Ecuador on a preserve where 14 new species of frog have been discovered in the last few years. This preserve, Cerro Pata de Pajaro, is threatened by deforestation by the cattle adjacent to it. The cattle ranchers are â€œencroaching and cutting down forests on the reserve boundariesâ€? and grazing cattle within the boundaries of the park, Robles says, where the herd are literally eating away the forest. So far, proving these claims has been impossible, as itâ€™s his word against the ranchersâ€™â€”unless he can document the damage scientifically using GPS and a camera. What is ingeniously sustainable about RAIEâ€™s donation program is not only the redistribution of American material wealth and the opportunity to inexpensively and rapidly advance biodiversity field work in Ecuador, Mexico and Cameroon, but the engagement of many more nonspecialists in hands-on preservation work. Average people will be empowered and engaged in sustainability work. Quoted by RAIE, Jerry Toth, director of Ecuadorâ€™s tropical Jama Coaque Reserve, says, â€œOne of the most important and untapped resources in this region are the human resources. Training and equipping the people of this region to be field guides and specialists in ecology is not just a nice gestureâ€”itâ€™s a longterm conservation strategy.â€?
Itâ€™s his word against the ranchersâ€™â€”unless he can document the damage scientifically.
Cameras and GPS devices can be sent to RAIE, 3901 W. Calle Don Miguel, Tuscon, Ariz., 85746. www.reptilesandamphibians.org.

>[SF^a[S4g_TaX\T]cPcX^] East meets West in unprecedented Georgian grape cultivation By Alastair Bland
hey came to California by FedEx in September, two dozen grapevine specimens collected on a government fruit-collecting trip to the Republic of Georgia. They will eventually be rooted at the U.S. Department of Agricultureâ€™s tree fruit collection in Winters, Calif., where they may produce their first crop in three yearsâ€”and Kenwood winemaker Richard Kasmier has called dibs on the fruit. Kasmier would likely be the first American to make wine using indigenous Georgian grapes. In fact, these varieties may never have been grown in the New World. They include such unknowns as Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, Khikhvi, Kisi, Kakhuri Mtsvivani and Bideshuriâ€”and in a market dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and other superstars, where would these Georgian obscurities have found elbow room, let alone a fan base? Nowhere, perhaps, except the three acres of Kaz Vineyard and Winery. Here, owner Kasmier
will make space for the vines, he says, and the wines they render will fit in well with the rare and unusual lineup Kasmier already produces. His wines number about a dozen, some of them blends, others 100 percent varietals, and with grapes like Alicante, Lenoir, De Chaunac and Marcel Fos making up the mix. Though Kasmier has dabbled in most of the usual reds and whites of the Californian industry, he has also grown bored with them. â€œI just donâ€™t have interest in competing with all the Cabernets in the Napa Valley, and I donâ€™t find them very interesting to make,â€? says Kasmier, who founded his operation in 1994. â€œEveryone already makes them. Other places are like the McDonaldâ€™s of winemaking, as far as Iâ€™m concerned. They do the normal wines. I do the â€˜Abby Normalâ€™ ones.â€? Kasmier has firm and developing plans to make wines beginning next fall with the Chinese, Indian and African varieties currently growing at the USDAâ€™s fruit cultivar collection in Winters, a site called the Wolfskill Experimental Orchards.
The collection is one of many regional locations of the National Clonal Germplasm Repository system and contains about 7,000 fruit cultivars. Branch cuttings for planting or grafting are provided freely to farmers and other individuals with an interest in growing crops commerciallyâ€” but with just two clones of each cultivar, the Wolfskill orchardâ€™s annual yields can hardly supply a commercial operation. â€œSo Iâ€™m probably going to make a â€˜Chinese blendâ€™ of many varieties, and an â€˜Indian blendâ€™ and an â€˜African blend,â€™â€? Kasmier says. Eventually he will grow the vines himself, identifying the best varieties, eliminating the others and dedicating entire blocs to new and unusual grapesâ€”perhaps even those outside the standard industry species, Vitis vinifera. â€œAs long as it has sugar,â€? he says, â€œIâ€™m interested.â€? As for Kazâ€™s Georgian-style wines, theyâ€™re still a far-flung figment of imagination. Kasmier has done the math: it will be at least three years before he gets his hands on any wood from the newly-collected vines. When he does, he says he can propagate 50 new plants from a &+ THE BOHEMIAN

single mother vine. Three more years would pass before they produced any fruit, and the wine would follow. â€œSo,â€? Kasmier says, â€œweâ€™re talking a decade.â€? Eight hundred of which have passed since winemaking beganâ€”in Georgia, no less. The event, evidenced by shards of clay bearing chemical traces of grapes and wine, was perhaps inevitable, since V. vinifera itself also appears to have originated in or near Georgia approximately 6,000 years before Christ. Since then, the species has diversified into 525 indigenous varieties, according to a paper by grape researcher Teimuraz Glonti with the Georgian Institute of Horticulture, Viticulture and Oenology. In Glontiâ€™s report, presented in June 2010 at the 33rd World Congress of Vine and Wine in Tbilisi, Glonti cites the Bible and the travels of Noah. â€œThe history of Georgian wine includes two big periods: before and after the Flood,â€? Glonti writes. A subsequent quote from the Bibleâ€”â€œAnd Noah began working and created vine . . . and made wineâ€?â€”alludes to Noahâ€™s role in the birth of winemaking. According to Glonti, molecular traces of red wine in scraps of pottery indicate that Georgians were intentionally fermenting grapes prior to the Flood. Then arose the waters, but not before Noah led his expedition through the Lesser Caucasus mountain range in southern Georgia. Here, with a sharp eye toward varietal differentiation (for surely there was no room for accidental duplicate copies onboard his vessel), he collected his germplasm and catalogued his accessions out of reach of the giraffes and the arboreal primates. So the story goes. Noah and his noisy entourage then sat out the Flood on the high slopes of Mount Ararat while the waters uprooted vineyards and temporarily erased the winemaking culture of the Lesser Caucasus. Afterward, according to Glonti, Noah didnâ€™t simply replant his grapevines in the nearest suitable patch of soil; rather, Noah took the effort to return precisely to where he had originally collected the vines, thereby reintroducing them to the land of their birth. Here, they diversified over time into the huge range of genetic variation we see today in Georgian grapes, and whether the f lood in the Bible was real or not, it is almost uncontestable that V. vinifera was born in or very near Georgia. And while the Great Flood would have only stalled the regionâ€™s wine industry for a few seasons, the crash of communism devastated it. During the Soviet era, Georgia was a leading source of the Soviet Unionâ€™s wine. After the Soviet Union crumbled, so did the wine industry, and grape acreage dwindled from 340,000 acres to some 90,000 acres today. Many grape varieties fell mostly off the map during this time of attrition, and as surviving wineries were transferred from government to private ownership, Georgiaâ€™s winemakers found themselves abruptly in the deep end,
treading water in a global wine market dominated by Europe, California and other powers. In the early 1990s, a group of Georgian wine repsâ€”farmers, vintners and investors alikeâ€”paid a visit to the Wine Institute in San Francisco, where they queried communications manager Gladys Horiuchi for tips on gaining a foothold in the American wine market. â€œThey were brand-new to capitalism and were trying to learn how our market worked,â€? Horiuchi says. â€œBut it became clear that their winemaking methods at that time were very antiquated. Their grape-growing techniques were good, but they had such old equipment. It became a very basic learning expedition.â€? Another assembly of Georgian wine repsâ€”again, boots and suitsâ€”returned just this February to the Wine Institute, intent on understanding the workings of Californiaâ€™s thriving wine industry, Horiuchi says. Currently, only a half-dozen wineries in Georgia export wine to America, according to information provided by the Georgian Institute of Horticulture, Viticulture and Oenology, but the effort to expand continues. During the USDAâ€™s 2010 collection excursion, the director of the institute asked the American leading the expedition, USDA geneticist Malli Aradhya, if the USDA could help to establish Georgian grape varieties in the vineyards of California. â€œThe world knows Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot, but nobody knows Georgian varieties,â€? Teimuraz Dekanosidze said at a discussion in his office. Aradhya did not need to be convinced. He and the government branch he works for have long recognized Georgiaâ€™s significance in the history of wine and grapes. â€œWeâ€™ve realized the importance of Georgia in grape research,â€? Aradhya explained to Dekanosidze, who has since been replaced as director by Iason Burdzgla. â€œThere are 8,000 years of history here in domesticated grapes. Where else on earth can you go to more effectively conduct grape research than Georgia?â€? The 25 grape varieties that the National Clonal Germplasm Repository system acquired from Georgia this September are currently beginning a three-year term in quarantine at UC Davis. Genetic analyses could eventually reveal just who these grapes are, where they came from, if they were born before the f lood or after, who their cousins are and what, if any, famed European winegrape superstars owe themselves to the grapes of the Republic of Georgia. In 2013, perhaps, the maturing vines will be tagged with identification collars and rooted in their new home at the Wolfskill Experimental Orchards, amid thousands of fruit trees and many rows of vines, 45 species of grapes in all, 3,000 cultivars, and two copies of each. Itâ€™s Noahâ€™s Ark without the water. And Kasmier in Kenwood, bored bonkers by Cab, Pinot and Merlot, will be waiting for the fruit.

<0:8=6<>=30HB 1A867C his coming Monday marks the ďŹ rst appearance of Munch Mondays in Santa Rosa, where an â€œEat Fleetâ€? of six mobile food trucks and carts will set up shop during lunchtime at the expansive and underused parking lot at Third and E streets across from the downtown post ofďŹ ce. According to Street-Eatz truck owner Jilly Dorman, the Munch Mondays plan is for the ďŹ‚eet to be there every week. Restrictions on trucks in the city of Santa Rosa have caused some food providers to ďŹ‚ock to county land either outside the city limits or in the county pocket of Roseland. Thanks to the support of Raissa de la Rosa at city hall, exceptions have been made in certain downtown areas such as Courthouse Square, Jeju Way and now, the former White House lot on Mondays.
In addition to Dormanâ€™s Street-Eatz truck, which will start serving Banh Mi, a popular Vietnamese sandwich, this Mondayâ€™s lunchtime options include mobile offerings from Chicago Style Hot Dogs, La Texanita, Dim Sum Charlieâ€™s, Karma, and Fork, owned by Sarah Piccolo (above). â€œI really like being part of the audience acceptance of what weâ€™re doing,â€? says Piccolo. â€œThereâ€™s this notion that weâ€™re competing with restaurants, but itâ€™s a different concept, eating out of a truck. Itâ€™s more food on-the-go than sitting down at a restaurant.â€? Forkâ€™s menu will include Dungeness crab sandwiches, Fraâ€™Mani grilled cheese sandwiches with pear compote, soup in a bread bowl and more. Even those hooked on Forkâ€™s delicious grass-fed burgers can hang with their vegetarian friends, noshing on either La Texanitaâ€™s vegetarian burrito or Street-Eatzâ€™ Japanese fried tofu plate. Just get there on timeâ€”before the engines whirr and lunch rolls awayâ€”on Monday, Jan. 10, and each Monday thereafter, at Third and E streets, Santa Rosa. 11:30amâ€“2pm.

;8CC>A08 F8=4B his operation is nothing if not transparent, starting here, in a muddy farmyard in December. Iâ€™m looking through a window set in the midst of a 70-foot compost berm. I see layers of pomace, manure and rotting hay that will be transformed, come spring, into rich compost for the vineyard. Iâ€™m looking, in some ineffable way, at the organic energies that will inform a future vintage of Pinot Noir.
But Ted Lemon isnâ€™t talking wine, just yet. Striding down into the woods, he points out efforts to eradicate invasive Scotch Broom in favor of native trees and undergrowth; a project to reintroduce native bees, even though they donâ€™t directly affect self-pollinating wine grapes; and coyote bushâ€”often thought of as a noxious weedâ€”that feeds the bees in winter. Outside of a barn stocked with horsetail, chamomile and cow horns, while friendly dogs and a curious kitten frolic underfoot, Lemon explains: â€œWe believe that wineries will only be sustainable in the future as wine farms.â€? This means growing 10 acres of hay, but only three of grapes. Lemon is also considering introducing cattle to this 30-acre biodynamic farm, but with as much careful deliberation as he launched Littorai, with several hundred cases, in 1993, purchased the estate in 2003 and recently built a brand-new, hay-bale wineryâ€”all funded by the wine itself. â€œThis is not an indulgence,â€? Lemon is quick to point out. Tastings are held in the winery for interested parties, with no shirts, no hats and no tchotchkes for sale. Lemon was the ďŹ rst American winegrower hired in Burgundy, and itâ€™s no mistake that wines arrow toward to a Burgundian palate, even as the vines are rooted in the Sonoma Coast. With an earthy aroma reminiscent of an oak woodlands walkâ€”without overbearing oakâ€”the 2008 Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay ($60) enchants, and ďŹ nishes with zippy acidity. Aloe and citrus similarly wrap up the 2008 Thieriot Vineyard Chardonnayâ€™s ($60) reverie of bay leaf and sea breeze. With the 2007 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($38), the goal is lean structure and fruit; orange peel, ďŹ‚oral hints of plum leaf and tea ďŹ nish more ďŹ rmly with the plummy, 2007 Cerise Vineyard, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($65), while some of the darker, licorice and glazed fruit characteristics of this areaâ€™s more opulent Pinot may just be glimpsed in the 2006 Haven Vineyard Pinot Noir ($75). No strict idealist, Lemon has no illusions of achieving his ideals overnight. The goal of this wine farm is to move in the direction of a future that today might only be glimpsed through a window darkly, while the wine is brilliant in the glass. Littorai Wines, Sebastopol.

I invite you to enjoy the editorial pieces by some of the show’s sponsors, leaders in the wedding industry who offer valuable insight. I also invite you to visit WineCountryBride.com - our show brings in about 1500 people, and a visit to the website will prepare you to make the most of your time at The Wedding Expo.

I would encourage you to consider booking at the show or shortly thereafter, as our vendors are in high demand and book quickly.

event planning & design ............................................................
The Wedding Coordinator A bride and groom (and sometimes their families) play the role of host at a wedding. This is a substantial task, made more complicated by the duties of overseeing the event. Enter the Wedding Coordinator.
A wedding coordinator’s job often starts with the planning phase. A wedding planner can make your wedding thoroughly memorable to your guests by assuring that they are comfortable and cared for throughout the festivities. A good coordinator brings each couple’s vision to life, making the wedding a reflection of who they are. Your coordinator should have an eye for style and décor. As the planning progresses, you can rely on your coordinator’s expertise to foresee potential pitfalls and difficulties (and avoid them in the planning stage!)
During your wedding, your coordinator becomes your operations manager, freeing you to play the gracious host or hostess, and enjoy your wedding with your guests. Look for a coordinator that is pleasant and professional -- calm, cool and collected at all times. In addition to being the point person and chief problem-solver, your coordinator captains your team of vendors. Effective interaction with vendors ensures that those working your wedding are taken care of, which allows them to do their best work.
Organizer Much of the work that goes into a wedding involves organization. From preparing a comprehensive timeline to sequencing vendor arrivals for maximum efficiency, a coordinator provides the framework that gives a polished feel to your wedding. Your coordinator provides perspective: keeping in mind the big picture while taking care of the smallest details. They can help you prioritize your budget -- assuring that the things that are important to you are given adequate consideration.
This is what Cirkl Productions is all about -- taking on the responsibility of overseeing your wedding, so you can enjoy your wedding with friends and family. Our reputation is based on inventive planning and seamless execution. We work closely with each client from start to finish, ensuring a realization of your vision and an enjoyable experience.

Tips on finding the perfect wedding gown
1. Find the right store Make sure to choose a store that has a very large selection of styles and price ranges. 2. Make an appointment The appointment will insure that you have a consultant ready to work with you right away. You will also have the best customer service. You will Let the fun begin! 3. Use your consultant’s knowledge When you are shopping for your wedding gown make sure to use your consultant’s expertise; they know the inventory very well and they will also know what styles will work with your body type and your wedding style. 4. Color Make sure to try on different colors to find out what works best with your complexion. White is of course the most traditional color for a wedding. If you don’t like the look of white, try diamond white, which is softer or ivory, which is a warmer color. You can also opt for something bold like a sash in a different color or embroidery in an accent color. Popular accent colors right now are blue, black and deep red. Most bridal shops will order their samples in white and ivory so if you are interested in an accent color make sure to ask your consultant to show you which dresses come in the color you are looking for. 5. Style Make sure to have an open mind when shopping for a wedding gown. Try on different styles; you would be surprised how a dress you would not have thought of ends up being absolutely stunning on you! It’s amazing how the dress you just didn’t think of ends up being the one.
6. When to order your wedding gown Make sure to start your wedding gown shopping early, at least six months before your wedding date. Most companies take about three to four months to manufacture special order wedding gowns and you will want to add about a month for alterations (you will probably do an average of three fittings with your seamstress). And of course, giving yourself a large buffer between your dress arrival date and your wedding date will give you the time to react just in case anything is less than perfect. Shopping for your wedding gown will be extremely fun and memorable, so don’t wait to get started. 7. Sizing and Alterations Many brides are surprised to find out that their wedding gown will not be made to their specific measurements. When ordering a dress there are three different measurements that will need to be taken: bust, waist and hip. You may find that you are between two and even three different sizes. From your measurements, your consultant will help you identify the size that will work best for you and the dress style you have chosen, according to the dress designer’s size chart. This is where alterations will play a very large part in making your wedding gown perfect! Because this is a once in a life time event and the dress size you will order may not be a perfect fit, you will want to have alterations done to your dress to insure that it looks absolutely perfect! Make sure that you work with a seamstress that specializes in wedding gown alterations so that the outcome is exactly what you envisioned. You will want your wedding gown to fit you like it was custom made for you. 8. Enjoy the process of finding your wedding gown!

A FREE WEDDING PLANNING RESOURCE The Wine Country Bride Planning Resource Center is a comprehensive planning resource for couples planning their wedding in the Wine Country, and beyond. The resource includes a design and decor showroom, an effective and specific vendor referral service, budget and scheduling guidance, workshops/special events, and much more. You will work one on one with our wedding coaches to organize your thoughts and move your planning forward. And the best part? There is no cost to you! The only thing that we ask is
DECOR IDEAS the vibe of every wedding is dictated by the decor. To achieve an event that reverberates with romance, adorn your space with dozens of red roses and golden ornamentation. For casual elegance, try candles set afloat in pools, flowers floating in fish bowls, and a string quartet playing love ballads.
to classic.... ivory cloths with white overlays, for example; and have a white wedding cake with white rolled fondant frosting and accented with ivory sugar blossoms. Final touches: waiters dressed in tuxedos with white jackets (hello, James Bond), and, of course, a white limousine.
embrace color..... Develop a visually stunning scene using monochromatic color, whether blue, violet, or kiwi green. Consider setting up different sizes and shapes of tables (circular, square, rectangular) and use different textures or designs for the fabrics (pin-stripe fabrics on round tables and tiny polka-dot covers on square ones). Although your color palette will remain the same, each tabletop will render a distinct personality.
set your tables apart.... Who says the tables must sport uniform arrangements? Think of your spread of tables as a garden, each row or corner with its own identity. Place some of your chosen blooms in tall opaque vases, float other flowers in short bowls, use others in clear vases filled with rocks and water. Accent the shorter centerpieces with tall taper candles and the taller ones with shorter votives or tea lights.
make it intimate.... If you've chosen a huge reception space to accommodate your massive family, make it more intimate by adding lounge furniture. If you can't bring in couches and plush chairs to create a sitting area, try seating only four people to a table instead of eight to ten, or drape the walls and ceilings with rich velvety fabrics to close in the space.
that you let us know which of our vendor referrals and resources you end up using, and how they do for you. THE BOTTOM LINE: Planning a wedding can be a full-time job. We make it easy.

6>;34=140A Governor-Elect Jerry Brown in Sacramento in 2009. Getting the state deficit in order wonâ€™t just be tough on Brownâ€”itâ€™ll be tough on all of us.
CWXaSCTa\CW^a^dVWQaTS What can we expect from Jerry Brown this time around? By Tom Hayden
recently asked my friend Angela Oh, defense attorney and Buddhist priest, what she thought about the karma of Jerry Brown. She paused for only a moment. â€œHis karma,â€? she replied, â€œis to inherit the collapse of so many institutions his father built.â€? Infrastructure decay. Traffic congestion and pollution. Water shortages. More prison inmates than state university students. Since Brown rebelled against his fatherâ€™s legacy during his â€œsmall is beautifulâ€? phase, itâ€™s tempting to accept Ohâ€™s analysis. But there are several differences this time. First, the booming revenues of Pat Brownâ€™s era arenâ€™t likely to return anytime soon. The current deficit estimates for California range in the $20 billion to $28 billion range, our debt has doubled in seven years and our credit rating is the worst of the heavily populated states. Jerry Brownâ€™s old prophecy of a coming â€œera of limitsâ€? has come true.
The second difference is that our productive industrial economy has been either outsourced or automated. Brownâ€™s prophecies of globalizationâ€”in which he proposed a â€œNorth American common marketâ€?â€”have proven true as well. Brownâ€™s central pledge to build a more energy-efficient economy with 500,000 green jobs will be incredibly difficult to fund. Furthermore, some of the state crises are Brownâ€™s own responsibility, not the legacy of his father. Brownâ€™s implementation of Proposition 13 by spending the stateâ€™s surplus created an illusion that there was no revenue crisis. And his hard-line anticrime philosophy, beginning with his support for mandatory minimum sentencing in 1975, eventually resulted in a prison gulag of 150,000 inmates costing more tax dollars than the state university system and five times the stateâ€™s budget for the environment and natural resources. Finally, the stateâ€™s financial crisis has been inflamed by Democrats â€œfascinated by supply-side economics,â€? according to a leading analyst of the budget in Sacramento. Two-thirds of the structural
shortfall is due to tax cuts enacted by the State Legislature during the past 15 years, according to the California Budget Project. Recent corporate tax breaks, the source says, were â€œlargely backed by Dâ€™s.â€? In other words: Brownâ€™s party.
o his credit, Brown has been holding televised teach-ins and town meetings on the budget quandary. At a UCLA forum on Dec. 14, his message that there will be deep cuts proposed in his January budget was consistent with his longtime frugality. But he also wants fairness. Remember, Brown has a Catholic sensibility that frowns on privilege and ostentatious strutting. â€œThose who are the most privileged have to leadâ€? in cutting back budgets and perks, he said, noting that he was cutting his own office expenditures by 20 percent. A few minutes later, he upped that figure to 25 percent or more. â€œThere are limits to inequality,â€? he added, because â€œit tears at the social fabric.â€? The language about sacrifice from the top was vintage Brown. His new symbol will have to be something other than the Plymouth, '' THE BOHEMIAN

His choices include the American Chevy Volt for $33,000 with rebates, or the Japanese Nissan Leaf at $25,000. My guess is he goes for Detroit instead of globalization. In early December, I asked Brown spokesman Steve Glazer when we might hear more about his vague campaign promise to â€œnot raise taxes without a vote of the people.â€? Glazer said only that Brownâ€™s current plan is to educate the stakeholders on the true magnitude of the budget crisis and to propose cuts in services in early January. Donâ€™t get ahead of the story, he cautioned.
Californiaâ€™s debt has doubled in seven years, and our credit rating is the worst of the heavily populated states. Jerry Brownâ€™s old prophecy of a coming â€˜era of limitsâ€™ has come true. It was federal military and highway spending and the government-funded invention of the computer that spurred Pat Brownâ€™s era of growth. But the prospects of new federal assistance these days are dim, to say the least. On the contrary, California pays far more to the federal government than it receives. In 2005, the most recent year for which there is data, Californians spent nearly $50 billion in â€œfiscal transfersâ€? to bail out America. The stateâ€™s taxpayers pay $15 billion annually for Afghanistan alone, enough to employ 196,000 elementary-school teachers or equip 5 million households with photovoltaic electricity. Itâ€™s possible that Brown will take to blaming Washingtonâ€™s priorities for Californiaâ€™s ills, but not anytime soon. For now, he wants Californians to see themselves in the mirror. At some point, Brown could launch a populist campaign against the institutionalized greed and avarice that have ripped open $19 billion in annual tax loopholes from a supplicant Legislature. He could hammer the point that these tax breaks take a majority to pass and twothirds to ever close. He could point out that tax breaks have a way of becoming permanent, with no review of whether they create economic benefits. He could call for
reinstatement of the top income tax bracket under Ronald Reagan, which might net $3 billion to $4 billion annually. He could remind Californians that Proposition 13 was meant for homeowners, not as a bonanza for bank-merger con men and acquisitions manipulators. He could fight to lower the voting requirement for passing school and infrastructure bonds to 55 percent. Such a populist agenda might pass the Legislature and win voter approval where needed. Or he could get tough with the universities, demanding greater oversight and educating the public to the lavish sixfigure administrative salaries and perks while students still struggle to find classes small enough in which to be seen and heard, frequently taught by underpaid and unengaged graduate students serving as cheap labor for the professors. He could appoint regents and trustees who see the world from an undergraduate point of view. Instead, heâ€™s likely to agonize only briefly before he decides on more tuition increases, with no provision for their repeal when the economy improves. Green jobs and renewable resources are the area where Brown might reappear as a visionary global leader if he begins to solve the budget problem. He will draw on past models of tougher auto emission standards and Silicon Valleyâ€™s high-tech industry as examples of â€œinvesting in the future.â€? Brown has been derided by Republicans and the media for 30 years for being ahead of the rest of the country on these issues. One hopes that he expands his current teach-in to examine the costs and benefits of an energy-efficient future as part of an alternative economics that stops treating the environment as a giant storehouse. Assuming that the governor genuinely believes his call for â€œshared sacrifice,â€? he will have to reexamine his role in the mind-boggling prison buildup of the past three decades, which began with his ardent advocacy of mandatory minimum sentences and has led to an overcrowding crisis described by federal courts as â€œcruel and unusual punishmentâ€? in violation of the Eighth Amendment. The current prison budget is at least $10 billion and rapidly rising. The number of inmates has risen since the â€™70s from 27,000 to as high as 160,000. In the past two years alone, 112 inmates in California have died due to lack of medical care, according to the federal courts. Thatâ€™s one preventable death every eight days. Then thereâ€™s an inmate suicide rate thatâ€™s twice the national average. How are such deaths tolerable to a governor who opposes the death penalty? And yet it was Jerry Brown arguing in the U.S. Supreme Court last month against reducing overcrowding in state prisons that have been under a state of emergency since 2006. Well, not exactly Jerry Brown per se. Instead, Attorney General Jerry Brown hired a $1,100-an-hour Washington lawyer named Carter Phillips to fight the case for him. And this week it was Jerry Brown, as governorelect, complaining about those intrusive federal judges who â€œwant us to spend more money.â€? Perhaps the governor-elect is like many
politicians who oppose the death penalty on principle, then compensate to appear â€œtoughâ€? by locking up everyone possible. Brown was also stung badly decades ago when three of his very progressive state Supreme Court appointees were thrown out by California voters. Brownâ€™s karma may be to become the defender of a system where hundreds of inmates die from state negligence. The Supreme Court decision will come sometime in the next six months.
he shadows of the past hang heavy over Jerry Brown, but he is capable of reflecting and reinventing. He may mimic the Republicans and assuage the elites for a time, but they did not elect him. Quite the reverse: Californians elected Democratic state officeholders and legislators in a sweep this year, while the opposite was occurring everywhere to the east of this state. It would confirm the futility of politics to millions of voters if Brown and the Democrats abandoned their principles to follow a Republican approach in a state where Republicans were repudiated. Thatâ€™s not to say that Brown will revert to the Democratic past. He needs to escape the limited box where taxes and spending seem the only tools, but even so, he cannot truly measure the quality of our lives. Here is my suggestion: He should develop a California quality-of-life Index. Choose 10 (or 20 or 30) quality-of-life measures that already exist. We know, for example, that California stands dead last in the ratio of librarians to students nationwide. We are 23rd in per-pupil spending on public schoolchildren. We are behind only Louisiana and Texas in rates or total numbers of incarcerated people. Add another few categories and include them in an annual address by the governor. Send the quality-of-life report and recommendations to legislative committees for review and action. This would be a process pushing us toward our chosen ideals. (When I proposed such schemes while I was in the Senate, the proposals were poohpoohed by the Legislative Analystâ€™s Office, who asserted that the comparative quality of life could not be measured.) Itâ€™s time for Jerry Brown to begin making our institutions accountable for our quality of life more than our quantity of things. He might reflect on, and share in some future speech to Californians, these words of Robert Kennedy from 1968: â€œThe gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. It measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country; it measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. And it tells us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans.â€? This article appears courtesy a shared effort of California alt-weeklies.
<0CA8G)A4;>0343 A four-year recording hiatus, an extra guitarist and a fresh approach have reinvigorated the Velvet Teen.
6d]b1^]Tb3TXcXTbP]S1T[[b The Velvet Teen return with â€˜No Starâ€™ By Rachel Dovey
ost of us donâ€™t really have much control in the world,â€? says Judah Nagler, lead singer of Santa Rosa foursome the Velvet Teen. â€œMost of the time, itâ€™s hard to tell whatâ€™s even going on, although WikiLeaks is helping out.â€? Weâ€™re speaking on the phone about the bandâ€™s new four-track EP, No Star, as Nagler ruminates about the mythological figuresâ€” Apollo, Artemis, a demon, a seerâ€”that appear in his lyrics. â€œIn mythology,â€? he says, â€œgods often refer to the people who run the world, or at least have more control over the world.â€? Itâ€™s hard to think about powerlessness in the context of No Star. Despite its short length (just over 14 minutes), the record sweeps cinematically over burning bridges and crashing waves; forests and harvest-ready fields; guns, bones, deities and even Ivan Pavlovâ€™s
infamous bells. Musically, itâ€™s a supernova blast of pounding drums, clashing cymbals, racing guitars, tempo shifts and Naglerâ€™s high voice rising at times to a near-shout. With the EPâ€™s titan-sized sound and imagery, pre-WikiLeaks fallibility is hardly the first thing one notices. While this adrenaline shot could be overwhelming in some hands, No Star is both exhilarating and welcome, partly because itâ€™s the Velvet Teenâ€™s first release in four years. After the band recorded the experimental, distortion-heavy Cum Laude in 2006, manager Jordan Kurlandâ€”whoâ€™d put them on tour with Death Cab for Cutieâ€”waved goodbye. Later that year, bassist Josh Staples took a hiatus to focus on his other band, the New Trust, and former drummer Logan Whitehurst, who had already left the band and been replaced by Casey Deitz, died of brain cancer. Finally, their longtime label Slowdance Records closed its doors. â€œWe worked on some stuff then,â€? Nagler says of the tumultuous time, â€œbut it was hard
to get stuff rolling, hard to get the momentum back.â€? Last year, however, Staples rejoined the band, reinvigorating it as a foursome with the earlier addition of guitarist Matthew Izen. â€œWe wrote a few songs then,â€? Staples says, â€œbut we were never happy with the arrangements.â€? When they were invited to tour Japan in October of this year, they had what he calls a â€œcatalyst.â€? â€œWeâ€™d been to Japan about four times before this last trip,â€? Staples says. â€œSomething about the cinematic quality of our music really appealed to Japanese audiences before, but our music has changed a lot since we first made an album that appealed to Japanese kids.â€? They quickly recorded No Star to sell in Japan on CD, released it digitally in November and will have vinyl copies at this weekâ€™s release show Jan. 7 at the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. Though No Star may sound like a war cry on first listen, it is, at least in part, ') THE BOHEMIAN

a collection about defeat. In â€œFofor,â€? bass riffs and cymbal crashes clang like a battle march, but Nagler subverts the winner/ loser paradigm with his final lines. â€œIf there ever was a time to stand up rather than fall in line,â€? he sings, â€œit is forever, forever will we find this mutiny at home.â€? Ode-toconditioning â€œPavlovian Bellâ€? slyly states, â€œKill your neighbor, lock you away for bad behavior / Kill a million meet heads of state.â€? Though some parts may resemble a declaration of war, thereâ€™s really no tangible enemy in No Starâ€”or perhaps too many to count. â€œI do feel powerless in most situations, in a lot of ways,â€? Nagler says. â€œI was watching No Country For Old Men and this one line really struck me. Itâ€™s when the dude is waiting in the bedroom for the main characterâ€™s wife, and he tosses a coin and tells her to call it, and sheâ€™s like, â€˜No, Iâ€™m not going to call it, Iâ€™m not going to choose,â€™ and he says something like â€˜The coin and myself came here the same way.â€™ That would probably sum it up.â€? Nagler furthers this idea in our interview. â€œI think people with power function with the same rules as us,â€? he says. â€œWe think theyâ€™re born into it, born into better situations and better control over circumstances, but really theyâ€™re subject to the mechanisms that are in place all over the globe as a society generations deep into the industrial age.â€? Itâ€™s hardly a new idea from a band that has skewered the politics of everything from school budgets to the Sundance Film Festival. Their earlier work echoes throughout the new EP in other ways as well; â€œNo Star,â€? the most whimsical and upbeat of the collection, sounds like a distant cousin of â€œCaspian Can Wait.â€? Throughout the tracks, the group adds electronic f lourishes to the ethereal, hookbased melodies prevalent on their first two albums, Out of the Fierce Parade and Elysium. â€œA lot of the EP reminds me of an even combination of the electronic craziness [of Cum Laude] but definitely with some more simple pop arrangements,â€? says Staples. Both Staples and Nagler, however, canâ€™t exactly say what makes No Star the way it is. â€œI donâ€™t really think it was conscious,â€? Staples admits, of any stylistic and lyrical changes and continuities. â€œItâ€™s always just kind of based around what Judahâ€™s writing.â€? Nagler, meanwhile, is just as enigmatic. â€œI always try to be intentionally kind of vague,â€? he says toward the end of our interview. â€œI try to put in as much as I leave out.â€?

AXQQ^]^U7XVWfPh Cinnabarâ€™s â€˜American Songâ€™ presents Woody Guthrieâ€™s wandering heart and soul
By David Templeton
did keep my eyes on youâ€”and I kept my ears open when you came close to me.â€? So said Woody Guthrie, the great American folksinger and songwriter who died of Huntingtonâ€™s disease at the age of 55. Unable to play a guitar for the last 15 years of his life, Guthrie still left behind a legacy of nearly a thousand folk songs, including â€œThis Land Is Your Land,â€? arguably the greatest American folk song ever written. Guthrie, a prolific writer of prose as well as songs, wrote down many of his thoughts on music, songwriting and his own place in history, making clear his belief that every song he ever wrote was borrowed, in part, from the people he met throughout his life. The stories in his songs are the story of America, and the hard-hit lives he described so powerfully were the lives of everyday people, struggling to make their way in a difficult world. Peter Glazerâ€™s inventive, supremely satisfying musical tribute Woody Guthrieâ€™s American Song, now running at the Cinnabar Theater, does not attempt to tell the story of Guthrieâ€™s life. Instead, borrowing bits and pieces of Guthrieâ€™s autobiographical writing and including more than two dozen of Guthrieâ€™s songs (â€œHard Travelinâ€™,â€? â€œDust Storm Disaster,â€? â€œBound for Glory,â€? â€œLudlow Massacreâ€?), Glazer beautifully illustrates the notion that America itself was the co-author of Woody Guthrieâ€™s musical canon. Directed by Beth Craven with a first-rate cast of local all-stars and a first rate onstage band (Chris Rovetti, Tim Sarter, Dave Zirbel), the thread of Guthrieâ€™s narration is passed from actor to actor, further emphasizing the idea that Woody Guthrie and the American people are one and the same.
The play, originally developed 25 years ago in New Hampshire, was revived last year with Glazer directing at the Marin Theatre Company. It was an elegant and pristine production, with its fair share of chills-up-theback moments during some of Guthrieâ€™s more powerful songs. The Cinnabar production, presented by Cravenâ€™s new Musical Heritage Theater company, works better, I think. Aided by Cinnabarâ€™s cozily intimate environment, and also by Mark Robinsonâ€™s impressive, allpurpose barn/boxcar/meeting-house set, this production succeeds by sticking its big open heartâ€”Guthrieâ€™s heart and soulâ€”right out front and center. The superb castâ€”Shannon Rider, Jim Peterson, Mary Gannon Graham and Tyler Costinâ€”is consistently mesmerizing, morphing in and out of various characters as the play traces Guthrieâ€™s travels through the Oklahoma dustbowl, Depression-era tent cities and work camps, pre-war New York City and more. â€œJust let me be known,â€? Guthrie is quoted late in the show, â€œas the man who told you somethinâ€™ you already knew.â€? In Woody Guthrieâ€™s American Song, what emerges is a vision of Guthrie as not just a fine songwriter (and some of these lyrics, presented this way, might just grab you and shake your socks off, they are so good), but mainly as an artist who saw his job as that of a mirror, absorbing and reflecting back the rough-hewn beauty of a country and of a people that he loved right down to his bones.

igel Coleâ€™s Made in Dagenham is a fictionalized account of the equalpay-for-equal-work movement in England. With its thin but shiny layer of nostalgia, it makes strike-prone late 1960s England look more colorful than the dreary Northern California weather outside. Itâ€™s full of robust, sweetly hammy theatrical performances, among which one doesnâ€™t include Bob Hoskinsâ€™ strangely gentle role as a bespectacled labor leader. Itâ€™s hard to resist a film suggesting that the struggle for equal rights is a continuation of the David-and-Goliath aspects of England in World War II. In 1968, at the huge Ford Motors plant in Dagenham, London, a group of some 187 female seamstresses work sewing the auto upholstery. It is a job classified as unskilled labor and performed in a leaky and un-air-conditioned garage; since itâ€™s a torrid May, the workers throw modesty out and work in their bras, keeping an eye out for men invading the building. The shop stewards bring their grievance about the shirtless workers to two different union representatives (the featherbedding Kenneth Cranham and the aforementioned Hoskins); the reps give contradictory advice on how to proceed. The upshot is a womenâ€™s walkout, and the resulting bottleneck paralyzes the Ford plant. The matter arrives on the desk of the labor minister for Prime Minister Harold Wilsonâ€™s government, which is already reeling from the number of strikes hitting Britain. The labor minister is a woman, Barbara Castle (Miranda Richardson), who naturally sympathizes with the female workersâ€™ claims of deserving equal pay, despite the threats phoned in from Ford headquarters in Detroit (Danny Huston literally telephones in his part as the voice of the highest exec there).
Sally Hawkins soulfully underplays Rita, the worker and mom drafted to speak for the strikers whoâ€™s surprised to find herself rising to the role. If you like passing on the idea that Daniel Mays is the next Michael Caine, observe how well Mays plays the neglected husband of Rita the crusader, having to make dinner for the kids and burning the frying pans. Pleasing to the occasional point of bonelessness, this bit of strayed history ends with interviews with the real Dagenham strikers. Cole handles the cast and the subject matter with amiable humor. The period details are seasoning more than the main course, but they are savory: a vintage fashion photography session scored to Trafficâ€™s â€œPaper Sun,â€? for example. And thereâ€™s a quick demonstration of what made the Ford Cortina popularâ€”the way it gave lovers a little bit of privacy. As a chorus to the action, reporters dressed like secret policemen in fedoras and raincoats scurry around, trying to get a handle on the story; they come up with groan-worthy tags like â€œBoadiceas in Hairnetsâ€? and â€œRevlon Revolutionariesâ€?. As we can see from the actual news footage of the strike, Cole underestimates the darkness of late â€™60s England, a tougher yet more idealistic place than we can imagine today. Ultimately, thereâ€™s no denying the filmâ€™s point that the accomplishments by the seamstresses in Dagenham are still useful for the rest of the world. When so much of our cinema is cargo-crazed, one wants to defend a movie that quotes an inarguable line by Karl Marx: â€œSocial progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex.â€? â€˜Made in Dagenhamâ€™ opens Jan. 7 at Summerfield Cinemas in Santa Rosa (551 Summerfield Road; 707.522.0719) and runs through Jan. 6 at CinĂŠArts in Marin in Sausalito (101 Caledonia St.; 4145.331.0255).

The Wisconsin folksinger John McCutcheon may have just missed Bob Dylanâ€™s time in the upper Midwest air of Minnesota, but he certainly sought out Dylanâ€™s sources. Namely, in the 1970s, McCutcheon traveled to the Appalachians to study with Roscoe Holcomb, one of Dylanâ€™s muses, and became so entrenched in folk music that he mastered the hammered dulcimer, the guitar, the banjo, the fiddle and more. Without a doubt, McCutcheonâ€™s most entertaining contribution to our time is his clever song â€œHail to the Chief,â€? based entirely on the misunderestimated â€œgrammarâ€? in the speeches of George W. Bush. Catch him at the marvelous town-square landmark on Monday, Jan. 10, at the Sebastiani Theatre. 476 First St. E., Sonoma. 7:30pm. $22. 707.996.9756.
Adapting Thomas Hardy for the movies can be tough. For every success, like 1996â€™s Jude the Obscure (whatever happened to Christopher Eccleston?), there are other versions like 1979â€™s Tess (at least Roman Polanski knew his subject matter). The British cartoonist Posey Simmonds knew better than to try for the screen, and opted instead to take Hardyâ€™s Far from the Madding Crowd from one printed page to another, basing her comic strip Tamara Drewe in The Guardian on the famous 1874 novel. The result was a success of her own, soon adapted into a graphic novel which now, in an ironic turn of events, has been adapted into a film. The fantastic stone walls of the Jarvis Conservatory in Napa host a one-time screening of â€˜Tamara Dreweâ€™ as part of its art-film series on Saturday, Jan. 8, at the Jarvis Conservatory. 1711 Main St., Napa. 7pm. $10. 707.255.5445.

The British guitarist Adrian Legg is famous, sureâ€”after all, heâ€™s shared the stage with Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and Steve Vai on their huge G3 tour. But versatility may be his biggest asset, both in music and in travel. This week, he plays the showroom at the Crystal Bay Casino in Lake Tahoe just before heading up to Shingle Springs, Calif. (where?), and then dropping in on Marin. Itâ€™s a good guess that heâ€™s in town to check out the Bay Area World Guitar Show at the Marin Center (Saturdayâ€“Sunday, Jan. 8â€“9; 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael; 10am; $15), a huge convention of dealers, players, luthiers and collectors. Heâ€™ll pick up a tour date while heâ€™s at it, dazzling a crowd with his incredible fingerstyle playing on Saturday, Jan. 8, at 142 Throckmorton Theater. 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley. 8pm. $18â€“$21. 415.383.9600.

Local Moves If you were headed to a recital by a local dance school, you might expect numbers set to music by Madonna, Lady Gaga or Daft Punk. But for the Love2Dance studio, which since 2002 has been teaching kids the art of body movinâ€™ in Novato, this year itâ€™s all about the Bay. This weekend sees their annual dance recital presenting choreography strictly backed by the music of the Bay Area, be it Santana, Journey or the big baller himself, E-40. Have you ever wondered what a synchronized routine to Metallica might look like? Wonder no more when the Love2Dance studio presents â€˜Beats of the Bayâ€™ on Saturday, Jan. 8, at the Marin Center. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 6pm. $18â€“$24. 415.499.6800.

All Teeth release â€˜Young Loveâ€™ EP or the North Bay hardcore band All Teeth, who release their Young Love EP this weekend at a blowout show in Santa Rosa, such luxuries as rehearsing weekly are geographically infeasibleâ€”two members live in Ukiah, one lives in Reno, one lives in the East Bay and Michael Bingham, guitarist, lives in Santa Rosa. Basically, All Teeth only practice before they go on tour. Which is as often as humanly possible. The last time I ran into Bingham, he was getting off work at Gaiaâ€™s Garden, a vegetarian restaurant in Santa Rosa, getting ready to hop in a biodiesel van and drive three days straight, without stopping, to Boston. The primary reason for the East Coast tour was Floridaâ€™s version of SXSW, simply called â€œFestâ€? by the thousands who ďŹ‚ock to Gainesville every year. â€œWe played this weird generator show behind a warehouse at two in the morning,â€? says Bingham. â€œThere were 400 people there. It was maybe the coolest show Iâ€™ve ever played in my life.â€? Thatâ€™s saying something, since All Teeth have been on three full U.S. tours and countless regional tours in support of their 2009 debut full-length I Am Losing. Knowing that hitting the road is the way to make it as a band, â€œWeâ€™re gonna tour all year,â€? promises Bingham. This weekendâ€™s record-release show will be the ďŹ rst chance fans have to pick up Young Love, a record pushing a matured sound for All Teeth while pulling no punches. Leadoff track â€œGoodbye Faye Dolan,â€? a reference to Liv Tylerâ€™s character from That Thing You Do, leads into the kick-in-the-gut â€œCaller I.D.,â€? one of the most blistering songs about a phone ever written. Headlining the show is Ceremony, whose 2009 record Rohnert Park put that Sonoma County suburb on the hardcore map, and who Bingham says â€œmade it foreseeable for North Bay bands to take things to a crazy level, as far as hardcore goes.â€? Sabertooth Zombie, Dead to Me, Strike to Survive and Hear the Sirens round out the bill, making it a must-see showcase for the state of hardcore in the North Bay today. Catch the madness on Friday, Jan. 7, at the Arlene Francis Theatre. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 6pm. $8â€“$10. 707.528.3009.

Conlon Nancarrow sweeps in the new year By Gabe Meline
he first record I listened to in the year 2011, upon waking up after a long night of being around food, dancing, drugs, music, drinks, bike rides in the rain, crowded kitchens, hugs from friends, kisses from loved ones, Champagne toasts, Carson Dalyâ€™s terrible jokes, too many texts, unsafe drives and staying up until 4:30am, was Conlon Nancarrowâ€™s Studies for Player Piano. A terrible choice, by most accounts. My usual tradition is to listen to something calming on New Yearâ€™s morning, like Belle & Sebastianâ€™s If Youâ€™re Feeling Sinister. Something familiar from my teenage years, like the Fastbacks, or something longstanding and reassuring, like John Fahey. Nat King Cole. Dylanâ€™s acoustic albums, perhaps, or the Bandâ€™s Music from Big Pink. Anything to flush the chaos of the year away, like the rising waters in the creek near my house that sweep all the moss and mud and sediment downstream. But the hell with it. Itâ€™s 2011. Conlon Nancarrowâ€™s music is disjointed, sketchy and coming from too many directions at once. Itâ€™s the soundtrack to the coming year, with its incessant distractions. Ten years ago, we werenâ€™t updating our statuses every hour. Our lives werenâ€™t consistently
interrupted by calls from our pants pocket. We didnâ€™t have to know about the meme of the hour before it grew stale or the news of the world right as it was happening. We were able to exist in the moment, and to enjoy it, rather than record it. As many of his devout followers have foundâ€”from Pat Metheny and Jason Moran to the Kronos Quartet and Thurston Mooreâ€”listening to Nancarrow isnâ€™t existing in the moment. Itâ€™s being pricked all over oneâ€™s body by needlepoint pins wielded by dehydrated iguanas thousands of times every minute, over and over. Kind of like modern life. Born in 1912 into the age of the player piano, Nancarrow was a communist, a composer, a political activist and, eventually, an expatriate to Mexico City, where he died in 1997. His approach to music making was decidedly backward. Whereas pianists of his day created piano rolls with a mechanism that recorded their real-time playing and punched holes across a paper roll as the keys were struck, Nancarrow went straight for the paper roll with an X-Acto knife and a boundless imagination. This allowed him to prepare piano rolls of ridiculously crowded music, with fast, wild playing impossible to recreate by human hands. Why he chose such disastrously schizophrenic music to make is clear to anyone who listens to it, or attempts to listen to it: he did it because he could. Itâ€™s the sound of possibility magnified. Likewise, we do things now not because we need to but simply because we can. We live in the age of the gizmo. We use GPS systems when we know the way already. We ask our phones questions even though we could ask a human being. We exercise with a controller in our hand and a dongle on the television when the world is right outside our door for the jogging. As for making musicâ€”where to start? Every single vocal track is manipulated, every drum and guitar and keyboard processed by plug-ins and effects. This past decade has seen a revolution in recording, where manipulation isnâ€™t a postproduction convenience but rather the starting point of a track. The quickest glance at the activity on a computer screen in a recording studio during editing these days would blow the average personâ€™s mind. Itâ€™s an approach to making music backward, just like Nancarrow did 60 years ago. If art imitates life, that means weâ€™re largely living backward, too. As I write this, the house is a mess. I have seven tabs open in Firefox. The television is on. My wifeâ€™s iPhone is alerting away. My head hurts. Nancarrow is banging away from the speakers, prattling incessantly, like a class of school kids jumping on the piano keys. And Iâ€™ll tell you. As soon as this record is over, Iâ€™m going out to Armstrong Woods State Park, taking a hike through the centuries-old redwood trees and breathing some fresh, calm air. If Iâ€™m lucky, or if Iâ€™m not too distracted, I might even come home and throw on Music from Big Pink.

The Harlem Globetrotters are cominâ€™ to town o Gilliganâ€™s Island was, like, a super weird show, right? It was never remotely plausible, and never even actually that funny, but totally rad when youâ€™re eight years old, like I was when the showâ€™s writers went completely over the deep end with the bizarrely premised 1981 made-for-TV movie Harlem Globetrotters on Gilliganâ€™s Island. The plot begins when the Globetrotters experience engine trouble as they fly somewhere over the Pacificâ€” probably on their way to one of the 220 cities where the team of wily basketballers have graced the court over the past 85 years. They land on Gilliganâ€™s island, where the seven castaways have returned after finding themselves unable to integrate back into normal society (or apparently find a change of clothes). Their resort is called the Castaways, and all is peachy until an evil corporate raider in a yacht captainâ€™s hat tries to steal away ownership of the island so that he can gain access to a mother lode of valuable ore. The Globetrotters show up just in time to save the Castaways vacation resort by winning a nail-biting basketball gameâ€”narrated by legendary Los Angeles Lakers announcer Chick Hearnâ€” against a team of large grey robots with blockheads, and thus foil all plans for domination of the island by the evil capitalist creeps. Like I said. Not at all remotely plausible. Years after saving the island, the legendary Harlem Globetrotters are still on tourâ€”spinning basketballs on their fingertips, executing unbelievable trick shots and making an appearance Jan. 12 at Santa Rosa Junior College. The 2011 tour is sponsored by a motley group of advertisers including Campbell Soup, Howard Johnson Hotels and the Greyhound Bus Line (a cross-section that hopefully doesnâ€™t paint a portrait of what life on the road is like for a Globetrotter these days). Check out the antics of the Castawayâ€™s conquering heroes during the local stop of their 4 Times the Fun world tour when the Harlem Globetrotters strut their stuff on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at Santa Rosa Junior Collegeâ€™s Haehl Pavilion. 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $27. www.harlemglobetrotters.com.

Real talk on real booze fills Bernard DeVotoâ€™s cleverly crotchety â€˜The Hourâ€™ t was Marlene Dietrich who defined the trouble with the overfussy cocktail: â€œBad for you, and trouble for the bartender.â€? Bernard DeVoto, author of the recently rereprinted The Hour: A Cocktail Manifesto (Tin House Books; $16.95), would have agreed. DeVoto was a noted figure in 20th-century letters; he edited Louis and Clarkâ€™s journals and oversaw the release of that masterpiece of posthumous atheism, Mark Twainâ€™s Letters from the Earth. This knowledge of American history gives weight to the prediction the rum-despising DeVoto made when this book was first published in 1948: â€œIf the Republic ever comes crashing down, the ruin will have been wrought by this lust for sweet drinks.â€? Beneath the eloquence, what DeVoto ultimately pulls for is a well-made martini shaken with lots of ice, or simply â€œa slug of whiskey.â€? Itâ€™s bourbon that DeVoto praises the most highly, and its lighter cousin rye, as American as the Washington monument and far more useful. One feels itâ€™s a patriotic duty to purchase some Makerâ€™s Mark or Bulliet to consume when imbibing DeVotoâ€™s prose about the power of positive drinking: â€œIn England they call for a division, and the ministry falls; in Russia, they shoot a thousand commissars; but in freedomâ€™s land, they recess, speak the hallowed words of Daniel Webster and Henry Clay, and send out for a statesmanâ€™s standby and some soda. Strife ceases, the middle way is found, the bill gets passed, and none shall break our union.â€? If that passage doesnâ€™t drive you to drink, perhaps you share the spirit of the Lemonade Lucys who infest D.C. now: far less bibulous than the old days, but far more fractious. Richard von Busack
