Rhapsodies Still Not Smart

Don’t let PG&E charge extra to opt out of smart meters BY DEANNE THOMPSON

N

o sooner had the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) granted people the choice of opting out of the smart meter program than PG&E told its customers they would have to pay an up-front fee and a monthly charge if they chose to. We at Burbank Heights and Orchards in Sebastopol are circulating the following points on a petition. We hope, if you agree with us, that you will let the CPUC know.

We are very concerned about three matters regarding the optout program for PG&E smart meters: opt-out fees, which have been misrepresented as already set-in-stone in letters and phone calls from PG&E; smart meters at multiple-dwelling complexes; and the long overdue need for hearings on the health and safety risks of smart meters. The penalty charges for those of us who choose to opt out are unjust. (In a petition campaign held in August 2010, 83 percent of Burbank Heights residents chose to opt out. Copies of our petitions were sent.) How can we be charged for the removal of smart meters that have never been installed in the first place and for the removal of smart meters installed without our permission? We already pay the base rates that have provided meter readers and other basic services like repairs. We are opposed to the new charges and urge the CPUC to disallow them. The scatter-shot installation of smart meters at multiple dwellings such as Burbank Heights is folly. Here, the meters are together in banks, which constitute a wall of electromagnetic frequency (EMF) fields on each building and are adjacent to someone’s bedroom in each building. Installing smart meters will increase the EMFs throughout the entire complex by an alarming amount. The time has come to look into the health and safety issues related to smart meters, because until these matters have been addressed, we respectfully decline to be made guinea pigs for PG&E’s profit. If you agree with these points, please let the CPUC know at California Public Utilities Commission, 505 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco. Deanne Thompson is a resident of Burbank Heights in Sebastopol.

Major Medicine

Kudos and congratulations for your excellent piece on the state of medical marijuana in Sonoma County (“Smoked Out,” May 2). Everyone we’ve talked to has been enthusiastically supportive. You really got it right in showing the large number of medical-marijuana cases currently in the court system. Sarah, Mary Pat and I are grateful that you researched this complex and difficult topic, and presented it well. Medical-cannabis patients are glad that our message is finally getting out. Sick patients are being arrested and prosecuted, sometimes losing time off work or losing their jobs. Having to face one- to three-year court appearances with attorney fees leads to more stress on already sick patients. And they have lost their medicine. We are looking forward to working with the sheriff and district attorney to solve these issues. Thank you so much from all of us.

Alchemia Love A wonderful article about amazing people and a fantastic program (“Reaching for the Stars,” April 25). Thank you for taking the time to write about something so positive and worthy of public awareness. I think if we could all heed the lessons of Pin Pin and embrace differences, in all their flavors and colors, we would all be in a better, richer, more exciting place.

Shame and Weill Thank you, Shepherd Bliss, for giving voice to my own extremely negative

feelings toward robber baron Sandy Weill, who never should have had his $12 million in greenwashing money accepted by Sonoma State University or anybody in this county (“A Stained Degree,” May 2). And if the powers that be were not above such temptation, they first should have exposed the fetid corpse and stench of the murder he perpetrated on Wall Street and our nation. Beyond all this, had Weill repaid (which of course he did not) every penny that he and his minions stole from investors, mortgage holders and, indeed, America, he never should have then been “honored” by Sonoma State with such a dishonorable doctorate. As to Sonoma State University, “Shame, shame, shame!”

ED COLETTI Santa Rosa

Charter Situation Read the fine print, people, because despite what you’ve heard or read, a charter at Lagunitas School is not a win-win for the district. After looking over the two scenarios proposed by the Lagunitas Waldorf-inspired program’s charter, both budgets are completely unsound at best. Implementation of either would be a detriment to our basic aid district, leaving our other three programs, open classroom, Montessori and middle school, left to suffer. First of all, creating a new school within the district would double our administrative costs (meals, school nurse, custodial, secretarial, bookkeeping, etc.). We simply do not have the money to double up on the resources the charter petition demands. Second of all, if the charter goes through, Lagunitas would be required to pay 100 percent for all out-of-district students coming from other basic aid schools. Because a charter cannot turn away out-of-district students and because the sustainability of the charter relies so heavily on outof-district enrollment, you’re talking about an average $2,000 loss to the district’s overall budget for each basic aid transfer. Take in 20 out-of-district basic-aid students, and that’s $40,000! And that’s just part of the story! The

long and short of it is if the charter goes through, it would put the Lagunitas School District into a $101,000 deďŹ cit by the end of the ďŹ rst year and, even worse, $175,000 by year three when you consider all the cash involved and what the charter is asking from the district.

There is no way Lagunitas can handle such a mind-blowing loss of money and have our other three programs ďŹ&#x201A;ourish, nor can I understand how, after simply looking over the ďŹ nancials, it got this far to begin with. This is not a charter school situation. A charter comes about when a community as a whole wants it, when the quality of the community public school is lacking or substandard. Lagunitas is anything but. I highly encourage as many people who can make it to come to the May 10 meeting at 5:30pm at Lagunitas School to get the facts. Woodacre

Paper THE

GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS Shirlee Zane before a Biker Chicks ride in Sonoma County, where only 25 percent of cyclists are women.

Wheel Zeal

Supervisor Shirlee Zane’s mission to convert bike-curious women into full-fledged ‘biker chicks’ BY LEILANI CLARK

O

n a recent Sunday afternoon, over 30 women ranging in age from mid-20s to mid-60s are gathered at Santa Rosa’s Prince Memorial Greenway with bicycles, helmets and water bottles at the ready. In a quick, pre-ride pep talk, Sonoma County Supervisor Shirlee Zane

declares herself a “BABE,” an acronym, she says with a laugh, that stands for “Born Again Bicycle Enthusiast.” It’s pretty much the opposite of the Amgen Tour, which comes to Santa Rosa on May 13, and where one thing’s guaranteed—you won’t see any women hurtling in the peloton among the blur of muscles, spandex and souped-up boneshakers.

Only 25 percent of cyclists in Sonoma County are women, according to a 2011 Sonoma County Transportation Authority report, and shock at this statistic inspired Zane to reach out to the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition with the concept for “Biker Chicks”—women-only rides that encourage beginners to get on two wheels. “We’re trying to get new women bikers out there” says Zane before

the cyclist take to the Joe Rodota trail and embark on an easy 11mile ride past vineyards and the Santa Rosa Creek, “and address different obstacles that impede women from riding in the first place: the fear of breaking down, the safety issues, being able to navigate cars, whether they’re physically fit or not.” Pam Everson lives in Healdsburg, is in her mid-60s and a desire to get back on a bicycle after many years inspired her to attend the recent Biker Chicks ride to Willowside Road. “I just enjoy the wind in my face and all that I remember from riding when I was a kid,” says Everson, as she prepares to roll out on a borrowed bike. “I grew up in Fresno, and I used to ride my bike to school. We had a lot of freedom and could ride for a long way. It was a big joy.” Scanning the crowd, Everson comments with surprise at how many women close to her own age have shown up. But what’s even more surprising is that so few women ride a bike at all, especially considering that it’s the invention that “did more to emancipate women than anything else in the world,” according to feminist rabblerouser Susan B. Anthony. What’s more, women’s sports historian Sue Macy, author of Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom, says about 19th-century cycling that “for all the practical benefits of the two-wheeler, the fact is that it brought about a cosmic shift in women’s private and public lives.” So why is it that over a hundred years later, women still need special encouragement to get on a bicycle at all? Tina Panza, director of Safe Routes to School, says she believes it comes down to confidence. “Women aren’t really encouraged to take time to develop that confidence,” says Panza. “It’s not really something that’s emphasized and fostered in girls, growing up, or in women— to ride your bike for either transportation or recreation.” Working for the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, Panza says, has helped increase her street skills

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fostered in girls growing up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Since cycling is still seen as a competitive â&#x20AC;&#x153;manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sport,â&#x20AC;? women can be intimidated, says Borba, but training, encouragement, lessons about safety precaution and most importantly, a sense of fun, go far. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many women who already ride or want to start,â&#x20AC;? Borba explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of going out there and enjoying it. We want to keep people safe and show them how fun it is.â&#x20AC;? Zane agrees that a sense of camaraderie, joy and selfconďŹ dence is essential to getting over the initial hump. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a really fun way to get around, get outside, stay in shapeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and anybody can do it,â&#x20AC;? says Zane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just learn a few simple things about how to navigate cars, stoplights, bike lanes and trail etiquette, and you are ďŹ ne, good to go.â&#x20AC;?

On May 12, Sonoma State University will grant an honorary doctorate degree to Sandy Weill, the former Citigroup CEO with a starring role in this centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s global economic collapse. Weill is infamous for lobbying President Clinton to reverse the GlassSteagall Act in 1999. Originally signed into effect by Franklin D. Roosevelt after the Great Depression, the purpose of the act was to ensure a ďŹ rewall between investment banks and commercial banks.

Ho Holistic E y Care Eye

After the reversal, Weillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merger of Citicorp and Travelers Group became legal, netting the â&#x20AC;&#x153;renowned philanthropistâ&#x20AC;? (as described in a recent Press Democrat article) enough money to buy a $31 million Sonoma vineyard estate just as millions of homeowners faced foreclosure because of the banking ďŹ asco. In 2011, Weill donated $12 million to help complete the controversial Green Music Center at SSU, which seems to critics to be the clear reason the struggling university is awarding the degree. But a coalition of professors, students and community members are encouraging the public to show up on graduation day to make their displeasure known through nonviolent, polite and creative protest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a prominent member of the 1% who has done things that are obviously wrong, and yet heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being lauded,â&#x20AC;? says John Bertucci, an SSU graduate and member of the Day of Shame Organizing Coalition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many of the students are suffering under student loans and many, of those loans are from Citigroup. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an out-of-control situation, and the black and whites are so bold in this moment.â&#x20AC;? Organizers have set up a site, www.shameonssu.org, with information on the May 12 protest.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Leilani Clark

and given her courage to navigate on two wheels around town. Janae Borba, an employee at NorCal Bike Sport in Santa Rosa and one of the organizers of the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ride Day on April 28 that brought out 50 participants, says that cycling is on the rise among women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming popular, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sparking a lot of interest,â&#x20AC;? she says. The April 28 ride accommodated different levels, with a shorter, 20mile bike path loop through Sebastopol and a longer 40-mile loop up to Healdsburg and back.

Act Wise Taking backyard action in the 350 Challenge

BY JULIANE POIRIER

do one thing “J ust this weekend,” says

Erin Axelrod. “Register an action, no matter how small or large. It might not seem like much, but working collectively, our individual actions add up.”

Axelrod, organizer of the third annual 350 Home & Garden Challenge, is speaking of action that addresses water conservation, food security and climate change. But it’s fun stuff, because most of this change can be accomplished through yard or patio projects. Last year’s actions numbered 1,044, and included transforming 243 lawns and installing 21 greywater systems. But even planting a window box or stringing up a clothesline makes a difference. Axelrod, programs manager of the Petaluma-based nonprofit Daily Acts, explains that to take the challenge, every county resident decides what she or he can do to reduce water use, help secure the local food supply

(buying locally grown if you can’t grow your own food) and help reduce emissions. One simple action is to pledge to line-dry clothing all summer; a 350 Challenge consultant will even come over for free to help you install and learn to use a clothesline. While individuals are committing to projects, some businesses have been inspired to act, too. Folks at the Petaluma Heath Center are planning a big action, transforming a 4,000-square-foot lawn into an educational garden that will reduce water consumption by tens of thousands of gallons and spare the air from polluting mower fumes, noise and particulate matter of “mow and blow” landscape maintenance. “The Health Center is situated among business parks,” says Axelrod, “so the project presents a ripe opportunity to transition more lawns in that area.” The city of Windsor just transitioned 5,600 square feet of lawn, saving 30,000 gallons of water during May alone. “For those with no lawn to transition, there are other actions,” says Axelrod. “Ask yourself, ‘What is the action available to me?’ If you only have a patio and there is sun, what about line-drying your clothes this summer? Or planting a windowsill herb garden? Even if you don’t have a plot in your home or apartment, you can still do something,” Axelrod explains. “Rather than coming from a perspective of lack and scarcity, our challenge is about positive, inspiring solutions accessible to all of us in the community. What is the project you’ve wanted to get to for months that can make your life a little bit greener?” Home & Garden 350 Challenge is a program of Daily Acts, sponsored by the county’s water agency and department of health services.

MOLLUSK & SPICE HenHouse’s Shane Goepel shucks oysters for a batch of oyster stout.

Welcome to the HenHouse

Small-batch beer brewing in Petaluma with . . . oysters? BY KEN WEAVER

C

rossing a set of railroad tracks and steering into a weathered industrial section of downtown Petaluma, we arrive to find the three brewers of HenHouse Brewing Company hard at work. Their makeshift

brewing space is larger than most startups we’ve seen as of late: tidily organized pallets of boxed bottles, long multi-tiered metal shelves of ingredients. A grain mill sits idly in front of the facility’s door, the only overt exterior sign of brewing. Early on, one of the brewers appears

with a fluffy, ruby-eyed rabbit, the origins of which (still) remain unclear, and then disappears with it just as quickly. There is, in visiting small breweries, often a hint of magic involved. Behind the fringe of a clear, plastic warehouse curtain (the

type one normally expects forklifts to be driving through), Shane Goepel stands over the sink with a large knife and a plastic tray full of oysters, shucking. Scott Goyne monitors the brewing process, moving hoses and stainless steel. Collin McDonnell explains the day’s plan: a two-barrel batch of their standard oyster stout recipe, utilizing just the shells, with 15 to 20 gallons receiving an experimental, exploratory touch: the whole mollusk. Though the concept may sound slightly fishy, it traces its lineage at least a century back, to an era in England when oysters were far more plentiful there, and standard bar food. It remains uncertain whether the first “oyster stouts” were called such due to their ingredients or simply because conventional stouts and porters paired so well with them. The late, much-loved journalist Michael Jackson (the Big Poppa of beer writing) once mentioned, “The earthy intensity of stout is a perfect foil for the gamey brininess of oysters.” Versions of oyster stout today run the gamut, from conventional (often drier) stouts to those brewed with shells to ones using the entire oyster. Jackson encouraged the latter two. In the standard HenHouse Oyster Stout, 40 or so shells are boiled for a half-hour to contribute that aforementioned brininess and a touch of calcium carbonate, which raises the pH of the brew slightly (and is often employed on its own in brewing well-roasted styles, like stouts and porters). In addition to using only Sonoma County oysters, HenHouse also adds sea salt that Goyne handharvests off the Mendocino Coast. The end result, says McDonnell, “smells like an ocean breeze but doesn’t taste like an oyster.” It shows plenty of roasted and chocolaty malt character, and it’s an especially savory rendition at only 4.9 percent. HenHouse Brewing Company is a relatively new addition to the North Bay’s brewing scene, officially launching at ) 14 TAPS in Petaluma in

HenHouse ( 13 late February with a three-beer lineup: the aforementioned oyster stout, a 5.5 percent saison with black pepper and coriander, and a massive Belgian-style golden ale weighing in at 11.7 percent. The launch party at TAPS was elbows-tucked packed with thirsty supporters of the Petaluma startup, and the brewery’s name, a last-minute suggestion by Goepel, seems an ideal fit in a city with a poultry-rich history and an annual event calendar that includes the Butter and Egg Day parade. For the launch party, they fashioned their own tap handles out of recycled chicken coops. While the three partners of HenHouse ultimately share the brewing responsibilities, each brings along his own unique abilities. Goyne is a certified herbalist, with a finetuned knowledge of spices and alternative brewing ingredients. Goepel adds an analytical precision to recipe formulation, in addition to a depth of brewing knowledge. (He’s also quick to note he serves as head keg cleaner, a thankless but highly vital position.) McDonnell works as a professional brewer by day, bringing crucial knowledge of brewery mechanics to the trio. At two barrels per batch (just over 60 gallons), HenHouse is still operating on a small scale, with brewing sessions limited to the weekend hours. They currently distribute to about eight locations; Petaluma Market and TAPS are probably the most reliable spots to track them down locally. Outside of the Petaluma vicinity, they distribute to Ad Hoc in Yountville and Betelnut in San Francisco. When I ask to confirm that they’re self-distributing (typical of small California breweries), Goepel laughs, “Our distributor right now is a Honda Civic.” “We’re at this small stage,” McDonnell acknowledges, “where we don’t want to stay. But the cool thing about it is that we really get to play with a lot of different ideas and a lot of different concepts, and really educate ourselves—and our consumers—about the brewing

process, the brewing science and the brewing art. It’s been a really cool experience.” The number of new breweries opening up across the country has grown exponentially, with the Brewers Association reporting 855 breweries in planning as of November (up from 389 in mid-2010). While the craftbeer industry’s consumer base continues to grow as well, HenHouse is keenly aware that it’s important for them to get to higher ground, and soon. The experimental batch of oyster stout, in fact, is part of that growth process. While shucking 40 oysters over the course of a brew day is one thing (and, as Goepel highlights, “[it also] means we get to eat 40 oysters on brew day”), shucking a few hundred or more remains an entirely different level of labor and supply constraints. The addition of entire oysters may further enhance the aroma, but it may also give the company a bit more flexibility in scaling up the recipe to a larger brewing system. Their atypical core lineup (no IPA?) was a conscious choice, and highlights both how competitive the craft-beer market has become and how highly the HenHouse brewers regard their neighbors. Mentioning nearby breweries like Russian River and Lagunitas, McDonnell notes, “We decided intentionally not to launch with a West Coast hop bomb, because there’s no shortage of options for one of those. And so we did intentionally decide to focus on what we felt were underrepresented styles.” “We chose the oyster stout [because] we live in oyster mecca,” Goyne reflects. “We chose the saison because we love food, and I wanted to incorporate herbs into a beer.” He pauses for a moment. “We chose the golden because it’s so delicious.” Ken Weaver is a beer writer, fiction writer and technical editor based in Santa Rosa. His book ‘The Northern California Craft Beer Guide,’ with photographer Anneliese Schmidt, is due out in June from Cameron + Company.

Black Gold Looking for the richest dark liquid known to man? Drilling in the plains of Texas will not yield results as satisfying as simply heading out to Pt. Reyes Station this weekend. On May 12, Gallery Route One hosts a mole tasting to benefit its Latino Photography Project. Chocolatey-meatyrich stews and sauces from many regions of Mexico will be represented, all prepared by Pt. Reyes locals. If having to move the event to a larger space this year to accommodate the influx of curious culinistas is any indication, it may be wise to arrive early. There’s brown and black mole, red, yellow and even green mole, depending on regional preference. Order mole in a restaurant, and it’s likely to be mole poblano, the well-known brown sauce version. Each version has over 20 ingredients (and doesn’t always contain chocolate). On top of it all, almost every ingredient requires some kind of preparation before adding it to the pot, which takes about two hours to simmer. All of this setup is a good argument to let the masters do the mole cooking and just help out with the tasting part. Taste a ton of mole on Saturday, May 12, at Dance Palace.

Indeed, there was a Dr. Donald Edmeades, a cardiologist from Pasadena who, against local advice, planted grapes in the wilds of Anderson Valley in the 1960s. But when I finally discovered the Edmeades tasting room in the spring of 2012, after an arduous journey on foot disembarking in the parking lot behind the Hotel Healdsburg, I found it all but abandoned, greeted by a solitary stag’s head on the wall. Whoever was once here left only this sign: “Edmeades’ Folly.” Some helpful folk in the adjoining Murphy-Goode tasting room provided the missing pieces to this puzzle. Edmeades was acquired by Jess Jackson in 1988, long after the good doctor had moved to higher pastures in 1972. While the winery first brought attention to the Anderson Valley with its Cabernet Sauvignon, Jackson Family Wines refashioned the brand as a spotlight on Mendocino County Zinfandel, sourcing grapes from some of the most historic vineyards on Mendocino Ridge. Although they’ve tricked out the tasting room with a few rural accoutrements meant to set the Mendo mood—plus a typewriter and encyclopedia set, for the long northern nights, no doubt—it sits dimmed and disused. Edmeades Zins are available at the Murphy Goode bar through the breezeway for another month or two while the whole kit is trucked up to Anderson Valley. But is the giant family of wineries shunting off its poorer relation to the boonies? Never fear: Edmeades is getting its own tasting room in Philo, a burgeoning wine destination in its own right, where the winery operates with a good deal of autonomy and the grape’s natural yeasts run wild and free. For now, enjoy the 2009 Shamrock Vineyard Zinfandel ($31), warm and lively with red cherry fruit, just half a block off the Healdsburg Plaza. From grapevines planted by Italian immigrants back in 1878 and still squeezing the good stuff out of the dust, the 2007 Ciapusci Vineyard Zinfandel ($35) has the fragrance of grapes plus Christmas spice and split redwood, its earthy, boysenberry fruit flavors backed up with a warm drop of maple syrup. At 15.9 percent alcohol, this is what the old-timers might call a sipping Zin. Edmeades Winery, 20 Matheson St., Healdsburg. Open daily 10:30am to 5:30pm. $5 fee, refunded with purchase. 800.994.2454.

The Tour of California returns to Santa Rosa BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

Mica Jennings

W

hat eightlegged creature is born in Santa Rosa and dies in Hollywood seven days later? Why, the Tour of California, of course!

Santa Rosa hosts the first leg of the Amgen Tour of California on Sunday, May 13, beginning at 10:50am on Santa Rosa Avenue at Third Street. Several streets will be closed in advance of the race, which is a good idea considering the critical-mass-like swarm of 136

riders who’ll be vying for the yellow jersey. The tour began in 2006, and Santa Rosa has played a major part almost every year since. After a hiatus from Santa Rosa in last year’s tour, the historic town with a deep cycling history is back as the host of the opening stage of the race. With the prestige the TOC is gaining—many call it America’s premier bike race—Santa Rosa has been getting a reputation

as a cyclist’s paradise. But has it been one all along, and it just took a corporate-sponsored race to bring it to the world’s attention? Before there was the Amgen Tour of California, there was the Coors Classic. Yes, the Rocky Mountain refreshment that is Coors sponsored a bike race, the largest in the country, actually, in the 1980s. This may seem as ironic as a cell phone company sponsoring an automobile race, but Colorado, specifically Boulder, was cycling mecca at the time, and there seems to be a thing with bikes and beer. (New Belgium

Brewery would concur.) The race eventually added a Santa Rosa leg, starting and finishing in downtown, on D Street. There were about 2,000 people on hand to watch the race in 1988, but that was the height of the tour’s expansion. The Coors Classic folded in 1989 when, apparently, the bike-racing population realized that two hours of riding only burned about three beers’ worth of calories. The tour lives on, however, in spirit. Levi’s Granfondo, ) 20 a fundraising ride for the

20 Amgen ( 19 TOC’s Santa Rosa leg and other causes, led by Santa Rosa’s most famous cyclist, Levi Leipheimer, roughly traces the 1988 Coors Classic route. This coming weekend, riders will use polycarbon, molecularly enhanced, feather-light frames and silicon-coated racing jerseys to their advantage in the Amgen Tour of California’s opening leg in Santa Rosa. They’ll ride in a 115.9-mile loop up hills, down the scenic coastline, finishing in front of tens of thousands of cheering fans downtown. The ride will head through Windsor, then south through

picturesque vineyards and into Graton and Occidental. Then it’s north along the Bohemian Highway to Cazadero, where the incline reverses and saltwater sprays slicken the surfaces for speeding cyclists to the twisty incline of Coleman Valley Road, where one can still make out spraypainted declarations of “Cozza Cozza Cozza” on the asphalt from tours past. Chris Horner will defend his Tour of California title against favorites like Tour de France champ Cadel Evans (below), seven-time Lance Armstrong teammate in the Tour de France George Hincapie,

Teams to Watch Omega Pharma-Quick Step Riders: 30 Country: Belgium Stars: Levi Leipheimer (TOC history: First 2007, 2008, 2009; Third 2010; Second 2011), Tony Martin (time-trial world champ) Fact: The average age of riders on this world No. 1-ranked team is 27, but it’s anchored by the 38-yearold, three-time TOC champ Levi Leipheimer.

SpiderTech Powered by C10 Riders: 17 Country: Canada Stars: Steve Bauer Fact: The 2011 King of the Mountain team took first place in six UCI races last year and has made a strong finish at the TOC a primary goal for this year.

BMC Riders: 26 Country: USA (Santa Rosa, Calif.) Stars: Cadel Evans (2011 Tour de France champ), Philippe Gilbert (world-ranked No. 1 rider) Fact: This team is stacked with ringers and headquartered in Santa Rosa, so it’s a good bet the riders are familiar with the route.

GreenEdge Cycling Riders: 30 Country: Australia Stars: Robbie McEwen Fact: This rookie team on the world tour is the first Aussie team to crack top ranks of pro cycling. Veteran rider Robbie McEwen will go for a win in the final race of his career.

No. 1–ranked rider Philippe Gilbert, Matthew Busche, David Zabriskie, Jens Voigt, Tejay van Garderen and others. Leipheimer’s Omega Pharma-Quick-Step Inc. team (try saying that five times fast) is ranked No. 1, but rookie Australian team GreenEdge Cycling, with Luke Durbridge and Robbie McEwen, warrants keeping an eye out for. And after it’s all over? Head to the parking lot on Third and E, across from the post office, where team buses park in wait for competitors at the end of the race. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see and even talk to some of the riders.

Will Levi Race? After hometown hero Levi Leipheimer was struck by a car in Spain last month—a collision which broke his left leg—speculation has run rampant over whether he’ll race in this year’s Tour of California. Obviously, the desire is there; Leipheimer won the TOC three consecutive years in a row, from 2007 to 2009, and has led massive fundraising efforts via his Levi’s Granfondo to keep the Tour in Santa Rosa. But the injury has proven to be more serious than originally hoped, and competing seriously in the entire Tour of California would be a challenge. Here’s what we think: Levi Leipheimer will be at the starting line on Sunday. Consider last month’s 100mile Grasshopper ride through Sonoma, Lake and Napa counties. Leipheimer didn’t just roll along with the group—he smoked the group, even on tough climbing roads like Ida Clayton and Spring Mountain. A ride recap on the Grasshopper blog says it best: “Taking the title of He-Man Super Climber of the Universe was Levi. And he gave us all a whoopin’ with a broken leg—after fixing two flats.” Sure sounds like a guy who’s training to lead the pack over King Ridge Road, doesn’t it? Even if he only completes Stage One and goes home to rest up, Leipheimer’s got way too much history and involvement in this race to watch from the sidelines—and you can bet the cheer from Santa Rosa will be deafening if his name is announced. —Gabe Meline

ike to Work Day is May 10, and what better way to put your pedal where your mouth is? All this talk of cycling is wonderful, but if the United Nations has taught us anything, it’s that talking gets one nowhere without putting one’s foot squarely in one’s pedal strap. Energizer stations will be placed around the North Bay with snacks, goodies and other encouragements

for those who undertake the challenge to ride, not drive, to work. May 10 also sees a Radio Shack-Nissan-Trek meet-andgreet reception at the Trek Bicycle Store (512 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa). Members of the team will be on hand for autographs and to field questions, mingle and sip beer and wine from 5pm to 7pm. Defending Tour of California champion Chris Horner and teammate Jens Voight are confirmed guests, and if others on the team decide to roll along, it could mean seeing Andy Schleck, Fränk Schleck or Fabian

ong, long ago, before the automobile even, cycling was all the rage in Sonoma County. By 1895, there were already three bicycle clubs in the county, just 20 or so years after bikes became readily available to the public. The Empire Wheelmen of Santa Rosa (above) was formed in the 1880s, apparently spending afternoons popping wheelies and racing on a dirt track at the end of McDonald Avenue. Petaluma and Healdsburg took up in the newfangled fad in the 1890s when they formed the Healdsburg Wheelmen and Petaluma Wheelmen, respectively. Did they race wooden velocipedes? Maybe highwheel

bicycles? Were racers’ handlebar moustaches trimmed for maximum aerodynamic velocity? The answer to all of these is, “No. Stop asking stupid questions.” Their bicycles looked fairly similar to those of today, with metal frames. And no one trimmed his moustache in the 1890s. Things were different, though. Healdsburg’s races frowned on riders finishing too fast, going so far as to not invite them back. Some older racers were even given hundreds of yards as a head start. At the end of the race, there was also an acknowledgement for finishing last, for it showed grace, control and agility. Also in the 1890s, a young man

named Fred Wiseman was made the manager of a bicycle shop in Santa Rosa. Wiseman was a terrific cycling competitor, but when the Wright Brothers dazzled the nation with the first flight at Kitty Hawk, his imagination turned to the air in the sky instead of the air inside of rubber tires. Cobbling together design ideas from the Wright Brothers with knowledge (and components) from the bicycle shop, he crafted the first airplane the area had known. Later, in 1911, Wiseman would make history as the pilot of the very first airmail flight—made possible because of bicycling’s prominence in Santa Rosa.—Nicolas Grizzle

You Talk Pretty One Day Cycling, like any other sport, has its own vernacular. For the casual fan, a few definitions might help. The peloton is the pace-setting bunch of riders just behind the leaders and ahead of the stragglers. A domestique is a team member whose dedication is to helping the team leader. There’s one designated “star” on the team, and the job of the other team members is to help him win, for the good of the team. To bonk means a rider’s body is giving out, probably due to lack of caloric intake. And a broom wagon is sort of like the Zamboni of bike racing—it comes out when the action’s done and gives the all-clear to reopen the road.—Nicolas Grizzle

At 78, Warren Arnold still commutes 15 miles by bike BY SUZANNE DALY

KNEE DEEP Warren Arnold is coming up on 6,000 rides.

R

ushing down the road each morning while driving the kids to school, it was hard to miss the Santa Claus– like bicyclist with the red parka and white beard, steadily heading uphill. If he was halfway up Bloomfield Road, we were on time, but if he was near Burnside Road, we were running behind. And if he was at our mailbox, we were really late. Somewhere in the 16 years of seeing our morning timekeeper, we got to know the cyclist as Warren Arnold, sculptor of the marble whales at Doran Beach and creator of Sebastopol’s Sculpture Jam. After 25 years, Arnold continues to faithfully ride the 15-mile, round-trip route from his studio on Lone Pine Road to the crest of English Hill on his silver 21-speed Giant. Although he still resembles Santa, his svelte build distinguishes him from the elf, and belies his age: 78 years old. A recent morning’s trip is number 5,850, and as Arnold pedals to the top, he revels in the beauty of the area. “I’m so slow I can actually count the wildflowers as I go,” he says. “Yesterday, I saw 55 different kinds. With the rain and heat, things are exploding. We live in paradise. It’s great for sightseeing.” Arnold started to ride regularly as rehab for a knee injury, adding

a special “granny” gear to his bike. “It makes the hills so easy that even granny can ride them,” he laughs. “Biking is a non-weight-bearing aerobic exercise, but you’re still moving everything.” It took Arnold a month to reach the top of the hill without stopping, and when he accomplished that a hundred times, he thought he would quit. “I got to know the folks who live at the top and asked if I could have a party on their property,” Arnold says. “I had the party, and my knee is rehabbed, but I haven’t stopped riding. Over the course of time, I’ve gotten to know a lot of people along the route and have watched their kids grow up.” In cold weather Arnold carries three pairs of gloves, preheated in his shirt, swapping them out when his hands chill. But cold weather has been the least of his worries. “I’ve been on the top of Burnside in snow,” he says. “I’ve seen ice falling from the trees. I’ve been there with PG&E, watching power lines blowing in wind so strong it holds you up when you lean into it. I hit black ice once, landed on my head and cracked my helmet open, but I was OK. And I have to be cautious about the cars whizzing past on their way to school. But I’ll still keep riding, so in a year and a half, I’ll hit my next target—6,000 rides!”

Before Sunday’s race, keep your eyes on these Sonoma County roads, where TOC teams are sure to be training. King Ridge The centerpiece of the Tour’s Stage One, the legendary Coors Classic road and the namesake of Levi’s King Ridge Granfondo. Coming back on Meyers Grade offers trainees one of the greatest ocean views available along the Sonoma Coast. Pine Flat Twelve miles of unforgiving climb punctuated by an insanely steep final stretch. Excellent views and sparse traffic make this a dream training road, smack in the middle of Chalk Hill and the geysers. The Geysers From the Jimtown Store, it’s a 30-mile grind into Cloverdale, up and over the mountain. Another remote road, great for training. Spring Mountain n The toughest road in the county, uphill from St. Helena to Santa Rosa. This is the road Levi Leipheimer rode in last month’s Grasshopper ride, beating his fellow riders—even with a recovering left leg and after two flat tires. Skaggs Springs A 35-mile odyssey between the coast and Lake Sonoma that connects to King Ridge. Remote and unforgiving, a tem would have to be serious to train here. Cavedale Nearby Trinity Road was used in the Coors Classic in the 1980s, but close to Trinity—and longer and narrower—is this seven-mile climb, close to Santa Rosa and loved by locals heading into Napa County. Coleman Valley y The ascent from Salmon Creek is sure to be packed with spectators on race day, but keep your eyes peeled in the days leading up to the race—this is a brutal climb that riders are going to want to be familiar with before Sunday.—Gabe Gabe Meline

Easy Rider

Cool Chris

Riding a bike is so easy that there’s a saying specifically about how it’s easy. So why do so many lack the motivation to hop on two wheels and commute? On May 10, motivation arrives in the form of Bike to Work Day, with energizer stations providing coffee, snacks and other bike-related supplies for those who accept the not-very-challenging challenge. In the evening, there are even more pre–Tour of California celebrations all over Santa Rosa, including a free show by Carrie Rodriguez in Santa Rosa’s Courthouse Square and an RSVP-required kickoff party with Levi Leipheimer and the always-awesome Tom Boonen at NorCal BikeSport. Find energizer stations and more info about the day at www.bikesonoma.org, www.marinbike.org and www.napabike.org.

Sometimes in cycling, perseverance pays off. Chris Horner turned pro in 1995, but hit full steam in 2002, when he won overall point standings in the USA Cycling National Racing Calendar. In the following two years, he repeated the feat. Finally, after time on the legendary Astana team dutifully supporting Lance Armstrong and Levi Leipheimer, Horner dominated and won the 2011 Tour of California. This week, the returning champion appears along with fellow Radio Shack-NissanTrek teammate and fan favorite Jens Voigt in Santa Rosa, where fans can ask questions, get autographs and wish Horner luck for a back-to-back win this year. Be there on Thursday, May 10, at the Trek Bicycle Store. 512 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 5–7pm. $20. 707.546.8735.

Market Value

Spruce Deuce

In the summertime, Wednesday nights in Santa Rosa mean Wednesday Night Market, stomping grounds for produce vendors, food booths, crafts tables, giveaways, live music, proselytizing zealots, hundreds of strollers, people you knew in high school, huge turkey legs, DJs handing out flyers, excitable goths, city council candidates, occasional livestock, a winetasting area and so much more. This year, the market starts one week early with live music from the Brothers of Siren, Nothing to Lose and Firegills, but we’ll probably spend our time watching the brewpubs along the street for possible glimpses of pro cyclists downing a post-training pint. Be sure to bring friends on Wednesday, May 9, along Fourth Street in downtown Santa Rosa. 5–8:30pm. Free. 707.524.2123.

From the outside, the Feed Barn is just what it sounds like—a large empty warehouse that used to be a feed store. But for the last two years, it’s been homeaway-from-home to a coterie of artists, makers, tinkerers and musicians, who this week throw open the doors in a spring open house for a showcase of dizzying creativity. Included among the festivities with food provided by chef Mark Malicki is the unveiling of the mighty Spruce Deuce, a large kinetic sculpture designed and built by the masterful David Farish and Skye Barnett. DJs and plenty of beer round out what’s easily the coolest thing happening in Rincon Valley on Saturday, May 12, at the Feed Barn. 55 Middle Rincon Road, Santa Rosa. Free. 4pm–midnight.

Pink, Inc. Shannon Rider goes Broadway in ‘Legally Blonde’ BY DAVID TEMPLETON

I

’m not usually a pink person,” laughs actress Shannon Rider Urquhart, whose fashion palette has always tended away from annoyingly perky Valentine’s Day colors. But over the last several weeks, that’s all changed. “I’ve been pink crazy lately,” she admits, “because Elle Woods, as everyone knows, is pretty much all about pink.” Elle Woods is the central character in Legally Blonde: The Musical, a stage adaptation of the hit movie. Opening this weekend at Spreckels Performing Arts Center, the play, directed by Gene Abravaya, stars Urquhart as the effervescent Elle. A fashioncentered valley girl from L.A., Elle

‘Legally Blonde: The Musical’ runs Friday through Sunday, May 11–20, at Spreckels Performing Arts Center. 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm. $20–$26. 707.588.3400.

uses her natural charm (and a full marching band) to win admission to Harvard Law School, where she hopes to reclaim the love of the Harvard-bound boyfriend who jilted her. Once at Harvard, Elle remains Elle, dressing the way she’s always dressed: stylish, sexy—and pink. “The costumes I get to wear are really fun,” Urquhart says. “They are really high-end, design-wise, but also a little silly because of how pink everything is. In one of my costumes, I look like a huge bottle of Pepto-Bismol!” Best known as the frontwoman for the Shannon Rider Band, Urquhart has done quite a bit of stage work recently, often appearing in biographical dramas about country-western stars. She’s played Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline and Audrey Williams (wife of Hank). She’s also appeared in local productions of Woody Guthrie’s American Song and Rent. But none of the characters she’s portrayed in those shows is anything much like Elle Woods, and the music in Legally Blonde is a whole lot more Broadway than country. “Oh, this is definitely a departure for me,” Urquhart agrees. “Elle is very different from the roles I’ve been cast in. There is a lot of dancing and singing in this show. It’s such a challenge. I’ve been working harder on Legally Blonde than I ever have on a show.” The power of working hard, the importance of defying expectations—that’s a lot of what Legally Blonde is all about, Urquhart has decided. “When you believe in yourself,” she says, “it doesn’t matter what other people think. You just have to go for it. Elle learns that. And as she begins to discover how strong and intelligent she really is, her fashion sense even evolves right alongside her.” But, as Urquhart notes, she never stops liking pink.

f The Avengers starred British pensioners, it would be The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Senior citizens deserve this reward; they’re good and faithful moviegoers. Based on Deborah Moggach’s novel These Foolish Things, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a summit for British thespians as several distinguished elders meet in a story held together by a peeling retirement hotel in Jaipur, a Raj-era ruin.

The old folks have fled the expense of England for retirement in Rajasthan, and they respond to this landscape in different ways. A widow (Judi Dench) gradually blossoms; a married man (Bill Nighy) shows modest enchantment; a wizened gent (Ronald Pickup) expands his randy goatishness; a wife (Penelope Wilton) responds with absolute disgust to the heat and noise and spices and insects and the filth. Some Desi-interest arises in the form of the Marigold Hotel’s hapless manager, Sonny (Dev Patel). Sonny’s avoidance of an arranged marriage provides perfunctory under-60 love interest. Patel is very funny, but he’s funny in what George Orwell described as “the comic babu of the Punch [magazine] tradition.” Sonny, for instance, tells his guests that he understands their agedness: “You have heard the chimes at midnight, and you have grown long in the tooth.” So it goes for Ol Parker’s script, with its shrewd use of the sometimes-maligned expression “one.” “Obviously, one’s read one’s Kipling,” says a traveler, now wise to the ways of India, with its mongooses and cobras. These transplants all describe themselves as “one,” as if they’re not sure if they’re even a one anymore. And the arc careens too high for Maggie Smith—very funny, but plaintive. Here, she plays a terrified Cockney racist who suddenly proves her unlikely superpowers. But watching something impressive, such as the scene of Tom Wilkinson’s Graham sitting in a garden and unfolding on his personal life, I thought, “This is really fine playwriting. Too bad it’s a film.” ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ opens May 11 at Summerfield Cinemas.

Film capsules by Gary Brandt and Richard von Busack.

Y

ou know what the world needs? I mean besides world peace and a ban on GMOs and the return of 960 KABL-AM and for Dick Cheney to spend the rest of his life in jail? The world needs more bike songs, dammit. I mean it. Ask anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;hardcore cyclists, record store geeks, trivia hounds, DJsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to name a song about bikes. There will be a slight pause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bicycle Raceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Queen,â&#x20AC;? theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say, and the conversation will end there. How can there be hundreds of kickass hit songs about cars but none about bikes? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bicycle Raceâ&#x20AC;? wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even a monster hit for Queen; it peaked at number 24 in the States, and served more as an excuse to sing about big asses on girls than as a genuine ode to bikes. It references Jaws and Peter Pan and John Wayne, weirdly. As Queen songs

go, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a standout. As bike songs go, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deserve to be the most-cited answer to the ongoing riddle. Yes, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kraftwerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tour de France.â&#x20AC;? This is supposed to be a bike song, except nobody can understand any of the whispered lyrics buried in the mix. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a concept. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an electrojingle. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Born to Runâ&#x20AC;? of bike songs. And then, sure, there are a ton of other bike songs by bands lesser-known or so obscure that most people have never heard of them. Japanese garage-pop trio Shonen Knife has â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cycling Is Fun.â&#x20AC;? Early Jamaican dancehall singer Early B has â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wheely Wheely.â&#x20AC;? A friend of mine once found a 45 by some Australian singer from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s singing a dippy tune called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bicycle Morning.â&#x20AC;? Oh, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give me â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bicycle Songâ&#x20AC;? by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s utterly unlistenable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bikeâ&#x20AC;? by Pink Floyd may be an interesting example of LSDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effect on Syd Barrett, but no one hearing it is going to strap on their Shimanos and get pumped for a day of riding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broken Bicyclesâ&#x20AC;? by Tom Waits: depressing, sad, not a party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Midnight Bicycle Mysteryâ&#x20AC;? by Deerhoof: just plain strange. No offense to the above artists, many of whom I love, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, all of these songs are useless in the quest for the ultimate bike anthem. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right: we need an anthem. Dear Coldplay or U2â&#x20AC;&#x201D;or, better yet, Arcade Fire, whose fans probably actually ride bikesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;please write a catchy, sing-along, jump-up-and-down, hook-laden summertime jam about the awesomeness of riding bikes. I promise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be embraced by cyclists worldwide faster than Alberto Contador can break away from Andy Schleck with a broken bike chain in the Tour de France. Carrie Rodriguez, whose â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Seven Angels on a Bicycleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is very pretty, yes, but is also about a cyclist who gets hit by a car and dies, plays a free 6pm show on Thursday, May 10, at Courthouse Square in downtown Santa Rosa.

Bursting Pipes Trebuchet explode in four-part harmony No one ever knew they could sing. Their other band, Not to Reason Why, was a well-known atmospheric instrumental outfit, with nary a vibrating vocal cord in the mix. So imagine my surprise when I walked into a show by Trebuchet last year just in time to witness their version of the Magnetic Fields’ “Book of Love.” Not just sung, mind you, but sung in four-part harmony, with an intricate vocal arrangement. Not to Reason Why suddenly became a giant dam holding back a sea of pitch-perfect choral singing, and Trebuchet, with three of that band’s four members, was the small crack. With the Petaluma band’s self-titled debut just released, that crack breaks open entirely. The perfect record to play for any stodgy choral director who’s previously declared war on “modern” music, the LP soars and lilts with reverent, soaring fourpart harmonies (Francis Poulenc would be proud). Ukulele, cello, pedal steel, banjo and mandolin provide the backing, but the result isn’t Americana, exactly. Call it Stephen Sondheim meets the Mountain Goats meets Sons of the Pioneers. Or just call it the most impressive local release of the year so far. Trebuchet play a record release show on Thursday, May 10, at the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. 9pm. $10. 415.621.4455. —Gabe Meline

Amgen Tour Gala

Race for the Prize The Great Russian River Race Returns

The Amgen tour isn’t the only race in town this week. The Great Russian River Race offers contestants the chance to kayak through idyllic Healdsburg dressed in anything from crocks and cammo to face paint and false teeth. Hosted by Russian Riverkeeper, River’s Edge and Sonoma County Regional Parks, this annual tradition encourages wild dress-up; last year’s paddlers sported neon wigs, Viking horns and the full hair-and-makeup getup of Pennywise the Clown. The May 12 event is broken into two competitions, a 15-mile Bridge-to-Bridge Race for advanced boaters and a five-mile Rio Lindo Race. Both end at the Healdsburg Memorial Bridge, where live music, food and picnic blankets will entertain until 5pm. A portion of race proceeds benefit Clean Campus Clean Creeks, a program that educates teens on watershed issues like urban runoff pollution, and Sonoma County Parks to pay for the installation of the Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Dam. With winning categories for men, women, families, standup paddle boarders and “Best Dressed”—and the option to showcase your inner granola or child-eating ghoul—there’s truly something for everyone. Cheer at the finish line of the Great Russian River Race on Saturday, May 12, at Memorial Beach. 13841 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. $6 parking fee at beach. 707.433.1958.—Rachel Dovey

Astrology

FREE WILL BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of May 9

ARIES (March 21–April 19)

In one of your past lives, I think you must have periodically done something like stick your tongue out or thumb your nose at pretentious tyrants—and gotten away with it. At least that’s one explanation for how confident you often are about speaking up when everyone else seems unwilling to point out that the emperor is in fact wearing no clothes. This quality should come in handy during the coming week. It may be totally up to you to reveal the truth about an obvious secret or collective delusion. Can you figure out a way to be relatively tactful as you say what supposedly can’t or shouldn’t be said?

TAURUS (April 20–May 20) Taurus actor Daniel Day Lewis will star as American president Abraham Lincoln in a film to be released later this year. Hollywood insiders report that Lewis basically became Lincoln months before the film was shot and throughout the entire process. Physically, he was a dead ringer for the man he was pretending to be. Even when the cameras weren’t rolling, he spoke in the cadences and accent of his character rather than in his own natural voice. It might be fun for you to try a similar experiment in the coming weeks, Taurus. Fantasize in detail about the person you would ultimately like to become, and then imitate that future version of you.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) The idea of a housewarming party comes from an old British tradition. People who were moving would carry away embers from the fireplace of the home they were leaving and bring them to the fireplace of the new home. I recommend that you borrow this idea and apply it to the transition you’re making. As you migrate toward the future, bring along a symbolic spark of the vitality that has animated the situation you’re transitioning out of.

CANCER (June 21–July 22) My friend Irene has a complicated system for handling her cats’ food needs. The calico, Cleopatra, demands chicken for breakfast and beef stew at night, and all of it absolutely must be served in a pink bowl on the dining room table. Caligula insists on fish stew early and tuna later. He wants it on a black plate placed behind the love seat. Nefertiti refuses everything but gourmet turkey upon waking and beef liver for the evening repast. If it’s not on the basement stairs, she won’t touch it. I’m bringing your attention to this, Cancerian, because I think you could draw inspiration from it. It’s in your interests, at least temporarily, to keep your loved ones and allies happy with a coordinated exactitude that rivals Irene’s. LEO (July 23–August 22) The moon’s pale glow shimmers on your face as you run your fingers through your hair. In your imagination, 90 violins play with sublime fury, rising toward a climax, while the bittersweet yearning in your heart sends warm chills down your spine. You part your lips and open your eyes wide, searching for the words that could change everything. And then suddenly you remember you have to contact the plumber tomorrow and find the right little white lie to appease you-know-who and run out to the store to get that gadget you saw advertised. Cut! Cut! Let’s do this scene again. Take five. It’s possible, my dear, that your tendency to overdramatize is causing you to lose focus. Let’s trim the 90 violins down to 10 and see if maybe that helps.

important teachers—even the ones who taught you the best and helped you the most. You will earn a healthy jolt as you decide what to keep and what to discard from the gifts that beloved authorities have given you.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

What are the most beautiful and evocative songs you know? What are the songs that activate your dormant wisdom and unleash waves of insight about your purpose here on earth and awaken surges of gratitude for the labyrinthine path you have traveled to become the person you are today? Whatever those tunes are, I urge you to gather them all into one playlist and listen to them with full attention while at rest in a comfortable place where you feel perfectly safe. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you need a concentrated dose of the deepest, richest, most healing emotions you can tap into.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) Tourists rarely go to the South American nation of Guyana. That’s mostly because much of it is virgin rain forest and there are few amenities for travelers. In part, it’s also due to the reputation-scarring event that occurred there in 1978, when cult-leader Jim Jones led a mass suicide of his devotees. Last year, after travel writer Jeff Greenwald announced his trip to Guyana, his friends responded with a predictable joke: “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid!”—a reference to the beverage Jones spiked with cyanide before telling his followers to drink up. But Greenwald was glad he went. The lush, tangled magnificence of Guyana was tough to navigate, but a blessing to the senses and a first-class adventure. Be like him, Sagittarius. Consider engaging with a situation that offers challenging gifts. Overcome your biases about a potentially rewarding experience. CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) “You have more freedom than you are using,” says artist Dan Attoe. Allow that taunt to get under your skin and rile you up in the coming days, Capricorn. Let it motivate you to lay claim to all the potential spaciousness and independence and leeway that are just lying around going to waste. According to my understanding of the astrological omens, you have a sacred duty to cultivate more slack as if your dreams depended on it. (They do!)

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18)

If you’ve been tuning in to my horoscopes during the past months, you’re aware that I have been encouraging you to refine and deepen the meaning of home. You know that I have been urging you to get really serious about identifying what kind of environment you need in order to thrive; I’ve been asking you to integrate yourself into a community that brings out the best in you; I’ve been nudging you to create a foundation that will make you strong and sturdy for a long time. Now it’s time to finish up your intensive work on these projects. You’ve got about four more weeks before a new phase of your life’s work will begin.

“We all need a little more courage now and then,” said poet Marvin Bell. “That’s what I need. If you have some to share, I want to know you.” I advise you to adopt his approach in the coming days, Virgo. Proceed on the assumption that what you need most right now is to be braver and bolder. And consider the possibility that a good way to accomplish this goal is by hanging around people who are so intrepid and adventurous that their spirit will rub off on you.

PISCES (February 19–March 20) Is your BS detector in good condition? I hope so, because it’s about to get a workout. Rumors will be swirling and gossip will be flourishing, and you will need to be on high alert in order to distinguish the laughable delusions that have no redeeming value from the entertaining stories that have more than a few grains of truth.
