Rhapsodies Left for Dead

After a spate of hit-and-runs, local cyclists grasp for solutions BY SANDRA LUPIEN


everal fatal and near-fatal hit-and-runs have made headlines almost constantly in Sonoma County this summer, causing the community to ask hard questions and seek elusive solutions.

A popular question is the one about whether it’s safe to ride a bicycle on Sonoma County roads. My best reply is “Yes—mostly.” To put our fears into context, it helps to know that 45 percent of bicycle crashes are solo falls. Seventeen percent involve another bicycle, 8 percent are with animals and 4 percent with parked cars. Only 18 percent involve a moving car; in those cases, it’s the bicyclist’s fault about half the time. That leaves a bicyclist a 9 percent chance of becoming the victim of an unavoidable crash with an automobile. In those rare cases, the stakes are clearly higher for the bicyclist. But the real issue isn’t car vs. bike. Automobiles are transportation tools, but every tool is a weapon—sometimes deadly—if you’re unfit to use it. This week’s deadly hit-and-run on Lakeville Highway reminds us that our cars don’t always protect us from unsafe drivers. So we arrive at our next question: How do we keep unfit drivers off the road? Which raises even more questions. Can we do better than simply requiring people over 70 to renew their driver’s license in person? When will our culture insist upon taking away the keys from friends and family members who can no longer drive safely? What if our tolerance for driving under the influence was closer to zero? How can we make sure that everyone who’s driving is licensed? California health code requires that physicians report individuals with medical conditions that make it unsafe for them to drive. How can we enforce this rule? How can we ensure that people with a suspended license don’t drive? If our transit system really worked, would it help to keep suspended/unfit/unlicensed/impaired drivers off the road? Will we ever view driving as a privilege that comes with great responsibility, rather than an entitlement? Now for our last question: What causes someone to hurt another person and leave him for dead? I ask and ask again, but find no answer that fits.

Catching ‘Thieves’

I sure enjoyed your resident tourist guide to film locations (“Where Was It Filmed?,” April 18). Of special interest was the film Thieves Highway (1949). My father, a commission salesman, worked at Drum and Washington streets in San Francisco, where many of the scenes took place, in the old produce district. He stated that since filming was early in the mornings, many scenes were interrupted by earlymorning workers’ catcalls. When actor Richard Conte arrived with a truckload of apples and was quoted a price per box on them, some onlooker in the crowd yelled, “You better take it—they aren’t worth $2 a box!” Of course director Jules Dassin yelled, “Cut!” When the Italian actress Valentina Cortesa, playing a street worker, arrived, the workers, mostly Italian, yelled, whistled and made comments in Italian, much to the delight of the onlookers. Jules Dassin later refilmed these scenes, before the workers could get to work. Jackie Oakie, one of the actors, would talk to many of the workers while they were in the cafe. When the interior scene between Lee J. Cobb and Richard Conte was filmed in an upstart produce business office, they removed the frosted glass for better viewing. This was at Sunrise Produce across from my father’s employment at Jacobs, Malcolm & Burtt.


Sad Transit I have just returned to the North Bay from a year submerged in the smoggy, urban, desert landscape of Cairo. When I returned last week to the place I have called my proper home for well over a decade, I was in for a rude awakening. Perhaps absence makes the heart grow fonder and I idealized the North Bay while wading in Cairo’s trash-ridden

streets, dodging cats in 90 degree weather and wondering if the protesters in Tahrir Square were being shot at with live or rubber bullets today.

Americans, or at least we Marin- and Sonoma-ites, don’t like to share. My car, my health insurance, my food. This manifests itself most especially in our public transportation system. The United States in general spends an appallingly small amount of our GDP on transportation infrastructure. As gas prices rise, people are starting to ask questions about oil lobbies and funding sources, but perhaps in addition to this, we should also be questioning our mentalities and ourselves. How can an area as affluent, as beautiful, as blessed as this have let itself get to the point where we have all the sharing capacity of a cranky three-year-old in a sandbox? The public transportation system we have in place right now in Marin and Sonoma county is not bad, it’s broken. The price of a one-way trip on your bus system today costs slightly more than the gas it would take to power your average sedan the same distance, in twice the time, and likely includes you walking over 30 minutes since the coverage is so stunted. Routes are not clearly marked, and they’re changed nearly every season. Unless you just don’t have a car and must submit yourself to the mercy of the transit gods, it is up to people to choose to share to keep this system alive. And when it’s more time-effective, cost-effective and germ-effective to take your own ride, why would you ever want to? The truth is, we just don’t like sharing with strangers. If we did, this likely would never have developed into the issue it is. If the mark of a developed, advanced, stable culture is how people get around from place to place, then the question I’m asking myself lately is how this place got so great. Or do I just need to rethink my pride?

Inhumane Foie Great article (“Opportunity Quacks,” June 27), love the way in which Holly Abrahams utilizes parody in the great tradition of Swift and Twain, in order to underscore the absolute brutality involved in producing foie gras. If the quality of the meat is dictated by how poorly the animal was treated in life, then we, as a civilized country, need to outlaw said meat. Bravo to Ms. Abrahams for calling attention to the greed which sustains such an inhumane practice. Ironic that we call such cuisine “delicate” when the creation of such is anything but.

SPAWNED Gov. Brown’s proposal to send more water to Southern California threatens the resurgent salmon population.

Delta Blues

Can salmon survive California’s ‘Peripheral Canal’? BY ALASTAIR BLAND


hinook salmon are abundant this year in one of the best seasons in local fishing memory, with sport and commercial fishermen reeling in easy boatloads of the most prized food and game fish on the Pacific Coast.

Still, a local conservation group warns that all this could change

if state officials in Sacramento, now plotting the near future of California’s water-development infrastructure, approve and build a large canal intended to deliver Sacramento River water to Southern California. The project has been tentatively called the “Peripheral Canal” for decades since state voters rejected a proposal to build such a conveyance structure in 1982. Opponents of the canal say the

project would remove so much water from the Sacramento River that it would make the estuary habitat of the Delta, where juvenile salmon spend their first six months of life, incapable of supporting certain native fishes. But now, the “Peripheral Canal” plan is back on the drawing board of state government officials, including Gov. Jerry Brown—and the Golden Gate Salmon Association, based

in Petaluma, wants to see the project halted before it destroys one of the West Coast’s largest runs of Chinook salmon. “These are critical times, in the next year or two, for what the Bay-Delta and its salmon will look like for the rest of our lives,” says Victor Gonella, founder and president of the Golden Gate Salmon Association. “It’s a rare time. We’re sitting here while our future is shaping up.” Chinook salmon spawn in many watersheds along the West Coast, as far north as Alaska’s Yukon River. The Sacramento River is the southernmost stronghold of the species, but its salmon runs have seen a rollercoaster ride in the last decade between record high and record low levels. Experts largely agree that water conditions, including flow rates of the river and Delta, where baby salmon spend their first months of life, have a direct effect on salmon abundance. State and federal records show a long-term average spawning return of the fall-run Chinook, the most historically abundant of the Sacramento’s four distinct runs of salmon, to be between 300,000 and 400,000 fish. But 2009’s record low of 39,000 spawners came after water-pumping rates from the Delta jumped by 20 percent, to all-time high levels, from 2003 to 2006. Fishermen fear that the proposed canal is likely to cause an overall decrease in water-flow rates, causing a decline in salmon numbers. “[Gov.] Brown needs to scrap the ‘Peripheral Canal’ until further notice,” says Mike Hudson, a commercial fisherman in Oakland. Hudson says the current fishing is as good as it has been in at least five years, but adds that he isn’t confident about the future. “Along the entire West Coast we have managed to stop overfishing. Now, if we could only stop overfarming we’d have it made.” Peter Moyle, a fisheries biologist at UC Davis, says that the current system for water removal from the Sacramento River, which involves

salmon numbers. Jon RosenďŹ eld, a conservation biologist at the Bay Institute in Novato, says that in spite of the Chinook salmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardiness, the Sacramento River has been so severely altered from its natural state by dam-building and water diversions that it can no longer support self-sustaining runs of salmon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What [salmon] require is pretty simple,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sufficient cold water must ďŹ&#x201A;ow unimpeded from the mountains to the ocean during the appropriate season. The fact that salmon populations are declining dramatically throughout the Central Valley indicates how badly our thirst for water has overtaxed the capacity of our rivers to support wild salmon populations.â&#x20AC;? Gov. Brown has told reporters that the canal, which is now being designed as part of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and which could be in operation within several years, will cost $15 billion. But others have second-guessed the governor and believe the water-conveyance project could cost state voters as much as $50 billion or more. Other critics have made the case that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peripheral Canalâ&#x20AC;? could be illegal. In 1992, the Central Valley Project Improvement Act was passed, requiring that the federal government, in words from the Fish and Wildlife Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, â&#x20AC;&#x153;protect, restore, and enhance ďŹ sh, wildlife, and associated habitats in the Central Valley and Trinity River basins of California.â&#x20AC;? Conservationists say this law has been continuously broken for 20 years, and that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peripheral Canalâ&#x20AC;? will only further deteriorate the habitat of the Sacramento Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s native ďŹ sh. Gonella asserts that people must not be deceived by the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great salmon ďŹ shing into believing the ďŹ shery is healthy and stable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a great year, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting a great year next year,â&#x20AC;? Gonella says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get this right, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game over. The salmon will be gone.â&#x20AC;?

Heeeereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jerry Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget the moment, during an undergraduate class, when the instructor drew a graph on the board representing capitalismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inevitable decline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an unsustainable system,â&#x20AC;? he told us, â&#x20AC;&#x153;one that is completely dependent on limitless resources on a planet that will eventually run out of resources to offer.â&#x20AC;? I realized right then, with grim clarity, that capitalism is not an inďŹ nite system and that someday, probably sooner than later, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to ďŹ&#x201A;atline. Bolinas-based social critic Jerry Mander has taken on this reality and more in his latest book. Once called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;patriarchâ&#x20AC;? of the anti-globalization movement by the New York Times, Mander has written The Capitalism Papers: Fatal Flaws in an Obsolete System, in which he argues against capitalism and the unsolvable environmental and social problems inherent in an anti-democratic, morality-bereft system that promotes permanent war as a key economic strategy. In 1977, Mander published the bestselling book Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television, which explained, among other things, that television makes people more prone to falling under autocratic control. A former advertising executive, and current board chair of the International Forum on Globalization, Jerry Mander speaks about his latest book on Saturday, July 7, at Point Reyes Presbyterian Church in an event sponsored by Point Reyes Bookstore. 11445 Shoreline Hwy., Point Reyes Station. 7:30pm. Free. 415.663.1542. Mander also appears Monday, July 23, at the Sonoma Community Center. 276 E. Napa St., Sonoma. 7:30pm. 707.939.2973.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Leilani Clark

two giant pumps in the Delta, reverses the entire ďŹ&#x201A;ow of the estuary system when the pumps are operating at full force. This phenomenon confuses young salmon trying to migrate out to sea, Moyle says. Many become lost or stranded in sloughs, where they make easy pickings for predators. Others are sucked directly into the pumps and killed. Moyle says the canal, which would draw water from a location far upstream of the Delta, could be beneďŹ cial for the Delta habitat since the reverse ďŹ&#x201A;ow effect would no longer occur. But he says that a healthy salmon population requires a minimum amount of water ďŹ&#x201A;owing through the Delta and out to sea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A conveyance in any form will be positive from a native ďŹ sh perspective only if it is connected to no net increase in diversion [of water],â&#x20AC;? Moyle says. What makes Gonella at the Golden Gate Salmon Association nervous is that current plans for the canalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction include a 15,000-cubic-foot-per-second capacity, enough to virtually suck the Sacramento River dry. Gonella wants to see that capacity reduced, or see a guarantee written into the plans for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peripheral Canalâ&#x20AC;? that assures that recipients of the water could never turn the ďŹ&#x201A;ow up to full. The current surge in salmon abundance seems to come partly in response to a federal law that took effect three years ago that limits how much water can be removed from the Sacramento River Delta during the winter and spring months, when juveniles of the protected spring- and winterrun salmon are present in the Delta. The fall-run, which is not a listed species, has seen beneďŹ ts from these water-restriction laws. Still, habitat conditions in the Delta are generally so poor that baby salmon born in the Sacramentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tributaries must be transported by the millions in trucks and released into the bay, downstream of the Delta and its dangerous water pumps. This trucking program, however, may be downsized due to state budget cutsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which could be a disaster for

ee advocates like to say that bees are responsible for one in every three bites of food we eat. Still in decline from colony collapse disorder, bees are further threatened by the agricultural pesticide clothianidin. The pesticide, made by German agrochemical giant Bayer, has been identiďŹ ed as one of â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple, interacting causes at play in colony collapse disorder,â&#x20AC;? and immune system damage is a key factor, according to the Pesticide Action Network of North America (PANNA). The May 2011 Journal of Invertebrate Pathology reports that the pathogen Nosema ceranae is present in seven out of 10 bees in U.S. hives, but that fewer than half of infected bees die from the parasite. Mortality occurs when the infected bees are exposed to sublethal doses

of neonicotinoid pesticides, such as the ubiquitous clothianidin. Bee colonies in the U.S. declined by more than one-third last year. The Environmental Protection Agency, charged with removing from the marketplace any chemical that poses a threat to health or nature, has the opportunity this week to rule against clothianidinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but it may not. If the EPA takes no action this week, clothianidin may not come up for review again until 2018. In that time, says PANNA, the chemical may do incalculable damage to bees. Public input is needed. Paul Towers, media director of PANNA, tells the Bohemian that the body of scientiďŹ c evidence suggests that clothianidin poses a signiďŹ cant threat to bees, and the EPA should have banned it by now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Under the federal pesticide act, anything that poses an imminent harm to health or to the environment must be pulled from circulation by regulators,â&#x20AC;? explains Powers. But the EPA has not taken action to remove clothianidin, because, Powers says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bayer has distorted the science. The Bayer lobbyists are pressing for approval of chemicals that cause colony collapse disorder.â&#x20AC;? In February, PANNA and the Center for Food along with 30 beekeepers ďŹ led a legal petition to the EPA urging it to act. The agency still has not acted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now,â&#x20AC;? says Powers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to everyday folks to put pressure on the EPA to cut through corporate misinformationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;folks like you and me who want to continue to eat almonds and apples and other delicious food.â&#x20AC;? The Sonoma County Beekeepers Association says 556 bees visited 2 million ďŹ&#x201A;owers to make that pound of honey in your kitchen. Bees have been here 30 million years. Will the EPA, under pressure from Bayer, wipe out all of that sweetness and evolution for fear and greed, respectively? For more, see

HAIL ALE Monica Genetti and Dennis Eskert unwind with lighter pints at the Napa Valley Brewing Company.

Summer Sippers Put down that crummy Corona and get with these low-ABV craft beers for summertime BY KEN WEAVER


hile one of the recent trends in craft beer has been toward bigger, bolder and more potent renditions (imperial pale lager, anyone?), the summer months pair most appropriately with a refreshing, lower alcohol pint. Sipping from a goblet of 12 percent imperial

stout with the mid-July sun beating down might feel badass, but one’s head will generally present a pretty convincing counterargument the next morning. (We’ve conducted extensive studies.) Somewhere, in some godforsaken backwater region of the country untouched by craft beer, warm weather implies a shift from 30-packs of industrial lager to 30-packs of “lite” industrial

lager. Not much of a migration. But this is the North Bay, arguably the most vibrant brewing region in northern California, itself the birthplace of the modern craft-beer movement. If we have anything, it’s reasonably priced, artfully crafted and locally produced summer-beer choices. So step away from the Corona. And cellar those imperial stouts until it starts raining again. We’ve got beers far, far better. To focus this roundup of summer-appropriate beers in

North Bay, we’ve limited ourselves to those brews weighing in under 5 percent ABV. The vast majority of craft beers land above the 5 percent line, and those often tend to be the brews that draw the most attention. But under 5 percent is an entirely different ballgame, where one finds the focus shifted to things like Pilsners, English-style bitters, Kölsch-style hybrids, a plethora of wheat beers, blonde ales and (good) pale lagers. It’s also where one can better distinguish the artists from the amateurs. As increased alcohol levels tend to parallel both increased hop bitterness and malt sweetness (generally speaking), brewing flaws have nowhere to hide here. We rounded up three North Bay breweries offering a particularly broad selection of sub–5 percent beers, as well as a couple other local favorites that fluidly argue bigger isn’t necessarily better. First stop was Bear Republic Brewing Co. in Healdsburg, best known for its citrusy Racer 5 IPA (7 percent). While their bottled lineup of standard releases starts at 5.4 percent and rapidly heads up in alcohol from there, Bear’s draft-only offerings at the pub itself are impressively geared toward summer imbibing. Just a few paces from the Plaza in central Healdsburg, surrounded by wine bars and boutique hotels, their quiet back patio keeps tucked away from the traffic. Bear Republic’s Double Aught (4.2 percent) pilsner was the lightest of the group, modestly hopped for a pils and lightly effervescent, while El Oso (4.5 percent) amber lager showed fruitiness, Vienna-like malt character and a lasting toastiness on the finish. Speed Bump (4.6 percent) “American red ale” was darker and fruitier than El Oso, but similarly toasty and balanced. All were well-rendered and worth a sample, but Wine Country wheat (4.5 percent) seemed the most successful on the board. A German-style hefeweizen, the hazy pint offered up notes of caramelized bananas, soft cloves

to really understand the dedication that goes into that chalkboard of beers at Russian River Brewing Company in downtown Santa Rosa is to make acquaintance with the lightest offerings near its very top. On the Belgian-style side of the board, Redemption (4.8 percent) blonde ale offers up a bready and peppery yeast character coupled with additional notes of vanilla and honey. Available in bottles and on draft, an interesting comparison is to sample the two versions side by side; the latter’s tasty, but the Redemption takes on extra layers due to undergoing an additional fermentation from being bottled with active yeast. The new, limited-release Noble Experiment saison blonde (4.6 percent) is similar, though shifted toward pepper and citrusy notes. For year-round offerings like O.V.L. stout (4.15 percent) and Aud Blonde (4.5 percent), the final results of these beers were achieved over multiple iterations: brewing batches at a somewhat higher ABV than they are now and then slowly adjusting the grain bills and recipes to dial things in. O.V.L. stout offers layers of milk chocolate and the suggestion of smoked meat, while Aud Blonde is phenomenal in its current rendering: crackery malts, spicy hops, brilliantly crisp. If you can find a seat on the patio, a pitcher of the blonde pairs perfectly with warm weather. While space restraints necessitate trimming out some perfectly deserving sub–5 percent beers from other breweries, it’s hard to imagine a summer-beer article that doesn’t include Brian Hunt’s Moonlight Brewing Co. The lord of local lagers, the brewer who brought you both Death and Taxes, his Reality Czeck-Style pils (4.8 percent) is simply a worldclass pilsner: toasty, packed with mineral hop bitterness, and wholly refreshing. Summer wouldn’t be the same without it. Ken Weaver is a writer and editor based in Santa Rosa whose book ‘The Northern California Craft Beer Guide’ with photographer Anneliese Schmidt is out this summer from Cameron + Company.

and white pepper, almost entirely courtesy of an assertive yeast strain. It finishes slightly dry and crisp. (Bear Republic’s Nor Cal (4.5 percent) “California bitter” is likely on tap by now, too.) Heading toward St. Helena and Napa is the Calistoga Inn, home to Napa Valley Brewing Company. Brewmaster Brad Smisloff gets to showcase his brews in one of the North Bay’s most scenic brewpubs, which—in addition to an indoor bar and restaurant, plus outdoor white-tablecloth seating—features a shaded beer garden past the back bar. A horseshoe court, Adirondack chairs, strung lights, and woodchip-covered ground suggest a sophisticated adult playground. And half their tap list, which included two seasonals, consisted of sub–5 percent beers. Both their American wheat ale (4.4 percent) and Czech–style pilsner (4.8 percent) are yearround house beers. The former was especially fruity, with light huskiness from the wheat and a peach-like core, while the pilsner poured brilliantly clear and golden, with floral hop character and light notes of butterscotch rounding out the mouthfeel. But Napa Valley’s seasonal Kölsch (4.4 percent) stood out as the favorite: a hint of sweetness with spicy, noble-hop notes and a toasty end. The Kölsch style originally hails from Köln, Germany, and, perhaps even more so than many of these lighter styles, is particularly challenging to brew well. A hybrid offering, it essentially strikes a delicate balance between ale and lager brewing, requiring careful yeast management, and many American renditions tend to be overly fruity and coarsely sweet. Since we’re here, Iron Springs Pub and Brewery in Fairfax makes a fantastic rendition, Kent Lake Kölsch-style ale (4.5 percent). Available on tap and in bottles, it exhibits restrained fruitiness and pilsner-malt sweetness, with a soft edging of mineral-tinged hops—an archetype of summer beer. Our last major destination for summertime sipping is far better known for its heftiest brews: Pliny the Younger, Pliny the Elder, Damnation, Consecration . . . But

Pizzando opens in its permanent location at 301 Healdsburg Ave., in the space formerly occupied by Cafe Newsstand, in August, and until then will appear every other Wednesday in Spoonbar’s back dining room, the restaurant inside the h2h hotel. The popup plan gives diners a sneak preview of the restaurant and allows the cooks to work out the kinks in the menu, which will include dishes like grilled romaine hearts, wood-fired pizza and fried whole chicken with vinegar and aleppo peppers. The menu is to be served family-style, in a tasting format that’s $32 for three courses with two choices for each course.

Inglenook Vineyard What’s new is what’s old at Napa legend BY JAMES KNIGHT


full-page puff-piece in the leading San Francisco paper tells an all-too-familiar story: a wealthy San Francisco entrepreneur with time on his hands buys a vineyard in Rutherford, vowing to make wines that rival the best of France. Yawn. He plants Cabernet Sauvignon and builds a state-of-the-art winery, where gently crushed grapes are fermented on natural yeasts. We’ve heard it. He says the best wines are made in the vineyard, nourished from a mammoth compost pile. Uh-huh. There’s not much too add to this, except this article’s publication date in the Sunday Examiner: April 6, 1890.

Sea captain Gustave Niebaum may have been long of beard, but he was no simple old salt: fluent in five languages, with a taste for Bordeaux, he savvily exploited the business boom of his day, first charting the coast of Alaska and then establishing a trading company. In 1879, he was worth $10 million. Hoping to scout out a French chateau during his honeymoon, he found that his new wife did not have sea legs, and settled for Napa. After his death, and particularly after Prohibition, family members continued to establish the Inglenook reputation; the 1941 Cabernet Sauvignon was named among the top 10 wines of the 20th century. Just ahead of the fine wine boom, however, the family sold the winery and its respected name, which successive conglomerates traded on to sell bottom-shelf Central Valley wine. If you’re a wine drinker who hasn’t been drawing Social Security for a good few years, this is the Inglenook that you know. But here’s where the story gets weird—or cinematic, if you will. In the early 1970s, a young film director based in San Francisco placed a bid on the original Niebaum residence, and lost. Several years later, after the buyers lost a fight with the county over their proposed housing development and the director scored a box office hit, he got it. After further success, he purchased the winery and added his name to it. But this wasn’t enough for a director whose historical epics and obsessive attention to detail are legendary, until, recently, he bought back the Inglenook label to supersede his own. So what’s new at Inglenook? Very little. The iconic stone building, robed in green vines, appears exactly as it did in 1890. The Cabernet made here may rival some of best of France. But the landscaping has weathered some changes. Out front, visitors may stroll in a small replica of the Paris park where owner Francis Ford Coppola spent afternoons with writer Mario Puzo, discussing the upcoming film version of The Godfather. Inglenook Vineyard, 1991 St. Helena Hwy., Rutherford. Open daily 10am to 5pm. Reservations for tour and tasting ($50) strongly recommended; none required for wine bistro and exhibits. 707.968.1161.

The Navy’s expanded sonar testing operations add to the underwater cacophony for sensitive marine life BY JULIANE POIRIER


hale songs traveled from the ocean to the pop charts in 1970, when folk singer Judy Collins recorded an old whaling song, “Farewell to Tarwathie,” accompanied by haunting humpback vocalizations. The song, over 150 years old, mourns that no bird “can sing to the whale.” Alas, ’tis still true. Although technology has invaded the seas with countless sounds, it is far from a serenade down there. Humans’ ocean noise, like an audio harpoon, can cause panic and dysfunction in marine mammals, occasionally to the point of death.

Concerned citizens want that sound turned down, and in an ongoing fight to keep sea mammals alive, they’re even willing to take on the Navy. The U.S. Navy is increasing its Pacific training activities in waters from Mendocino to well beyond Puget Sound. To operate in this area, known as the Northwest Training Range Complex, the Navy is required to obtain training permits every five years, and the most recently issued permit has triggered public outrage over what some consider insufficient protection of marine mammals. In January, a lawsuit was filed by Earthjustice, representing a coalition of native tribes and environmental groups, against the National Marine Fisheries Service under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. The lawsuit calls for the NMFS to “mitigate anticipated harm to marine mammals and biologically critical areas within the training range that stretches from Northern California to the Canadian border.” Trainings allow the Navy to test weapons, use sonar, sink vessels, track aircraft and release toxins. Though it is possible for whales and other mammals to escape a physical threat, they have a harder time escaping noise, including sonar. Active sonar can

18 Ocean of Noise ( 17 affect marine mammals, and the Navy is required to mitigate these impacts. The question is whether the Navy is doing its utmost to protect wildlife while still carrying out its core mission. Critics say no.

Not ‘Red October’ “I think people don’t realize that when the Navy says, ‘We’re going to preserve and protect [sea life],’ they aren’t going to,” says Rosalind Peterson, a Mendocino activist opposing the Navy’s Northwest Training Range permit. “If they had to do effective protections,” Peterson adds, “they would not be able to do the type of testing they want to do.” Peterson claims the Navy is expanding its testing territory, taking more marine life and dumping more toxins in the ocean. Mark Natsunaga, representing the U.S. Navy Hawaii-Pacific Fleet, denies these claims. “Geographically, we are not adding area but increasing activities,” Natsunaga tells the Bohemian. “Submarine warfare is different now than what people saw in Red October, because submarine technology has changed. Diesel electric submarines can be very quiet if running submerged on battery power, and are quieter than a fan on your home computer.” Submarine warfare was once carried out at short range, when submarines were noisier and had to get closer to the ship to sink it. Now the lethal range is longer and the subs are much harder to detect, so detection skills of naval personnel must advance—using midfrequency active sonar. Public concerns about sonar harming marine mammals dates back over a decade, when the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, part of UC San Diego, used sonar in long-term research to measure core ocean temperatures (the speed of underwater sound travel alters with temperature). A Scripps report from 1995 states that the low frequency sound emitted by some marine mammals—which

enables them to navigate, communicate and feed—could be upset by human-issued sonar. The effects on these marine mammals, according to the report, “may range from no impact to subtle changes in behavior, temporal behavior disturbance of avoidance or important feeding or calving areas, deafness, and possible death.” The Navy’s Northwest permit claims no animal deaths are expected from sonar, but marine scientist Fred Felleman disagrees. Felleman, Northwest consultant to plaintiff organization Friends of the Earth, says midrange sonar can deafen a whale. “A deaf whale is a dead whale,” says Felleman. “And noise is not even included in the [NOAA and NMFS] definition of critical habitat for marine mammals.” A 2003 video by the Center for Whale Research in Washington’s San Juan Islands shows a pod of whales during a sonar blast from a Navy vessel. A siren sound is heard as 20 killer whales appear as if in panic, speeding erratically back and forth toward the water’s edge, away from the sound. That sound can have a negative impact on mammals is universally known, says Felleman, but how to mitigate it is not. “Sound can cause anything from a mild disturbance to distress,” explains Felleman. “And midfrequency sonar can cause tissue damage.” Sounds can also create such a severe panic in marine mammals, according to Felleman, that they could surface too fast and get the bends. “Marine mammals have been around 30 million years or so and are uniquely evolved to live in the ocean,” says Felleman. “The Navy was not required to get permits until recently when they were sued by the [Natural Resources Defense Council]. They intentionally expose animals to sound rather than using hydrophones to listen and track animals noninvasively.”

No Part Off-Limits Brandon Southall, a researcher for the Institute of Marine Sciences at UC Santa Cruz and former director of the NOAA Fisheries acoustics program, leads an ongoing research project on the impacts of man-made sound, including sonar, on marine mammals, funded in part by the U.S. Navy. “The Navy pays for a significant amount of marine mammal research in the world,” says Southall. “Not all results have been beneficial to the Navy, but they still get published because of the scientific process.” According to Southall, sonar is only a part of the invasive noise throughout the ocean, including the NOAAdesignated marine mammal sanctuaries. “Only a small percentage of those areas are ‘no take’ areas; that is, where no fish can be taken and no ships pass through,” explains Southall. When the Navy operates in confined spaces that resemble underwater canyons, they now take extra precautions, according to Southall. “Evidence suggests that these kinds of conditions are risk factors,” says Southall. “When sonar is used in these areas, marine mammals respond in a strong way, because sound bounces back and forth and the animals can’t locate where it’s coming from.” Southall insists that “there is a lot more sound coming from everyday, ordinary ships than from active sonar.” The loudest Navy sonar, reported in nonclassified documents, is 235 decibels. But while the Navy is held to public scrutiny in the permit process, commerce is not. Any business can operate ships emitting 190 decibels with no sound regulation, and ships run constantly back and forth across the oceans. Additionally, noise made by air

‘A deaf whale is a dead whale.’

guns used in oil exploration can be heard across the entire Atlantic. The InterTribal Sinkyone Wilderness Council, a body of 10 coastal tribes, opposes the Navy’s latest permit and is a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Council representative Hawk Rosales explains that Navy activities interfere with “ways of life . . . along their ancestral coastline and marine waters,” including their relations to other species, such as whales. “We filed the case because the NMFS wasn’t doing its job to protect marine mammals from Navy training exercises,” says Earthjustice attorney Steve Mashuda. “What we are dealing with here is a training range the size of California where there is no part off-limits to the Navy. We recognize that the Navy needs to train someplace,” says Mashuda, “but they need to train in places that have the least potential to harm marine mammals. We have asked for the permits to be sent back to the agency with more protections as soon as possible. Right now the only mitigation they have is to post people with binoculars.” Mashuda claims the binocular sighting technique misses certain species, including whales that don’t spout and sperm whales, which can dive for up to 35 minutes. “If they’re underwater half an hour and you’re looking for 15 minutes, you’re going to miss them,” says Mashuda.

In the Crow’s Nest Peterson’s website displays a biting cartoon of a ship with a captain calling up to the crow’s nest, “Ahoy! Any marine mammals in sight?” The lookout, unable to see all the whales, dolphins, sea turtles and porpoise swimming underwater, calls back, “No sightings today, sir!” Copy below the captions claims the Navy uses a “17th-century lookout method to locate marine mammals and other sea life before detonating bombs and using sonar.” But the Navy says these critiques are inaccurate and insulting to their highly trained personnel. “Mitigations are more than just binoculars on the deck,”

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No Cause to Worryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The $20 million a year the Navy spends on marine mammal research funds both military and nonmilitary scientists, including researchers at Scripps, Woods Hole in Massachusetts, and Cascadia. Some of this science helps the Navy estimate how many marine mammals might be affected by its operations. For the Hawaii-Southern California area, the number of possible exposures during a year is estimated at 2.8 million; this is not the number of animals, but the number of exposures to sound. Some individual animals may be exposed more than once to sound that the NMFS dubs â&#x20AC;&#x153;level B harassment.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The emphasis is on the use of the term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;potential impact,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Johnson, explaining there are no mortalities expected from sonar, and that the modeling used does

not factor in the mitigations such as powering down the sonar, which is done at under 1,000 yards, or turning off the sonar, which is done at under 200 yards. But the numbers have people upset. Organizers in Mendocino and Humboldt counties, protesters in Oregon and politicians including Sen. Dianne Feinstein and congressmen Mike Thompson and Henry Waxman have demanded better protections for marine mammals. These demands delayed, but did not stop, the permits. Residents of the North Coast â&#x20AC;&#x153;have no cause to worry,â&#x20AC;? explains Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very little Navy activity occurs off the coasts of Humboldt and Mendocino. Most training is in Southern California, where ships group and deploy as teams.â&#x20AC;? The northern waters are mainly for transit to more concentrated activities at Puget Sound, where typically a small number of sonar-equipped ships are ported. In Mendocino and Humboldt waters, according to Johnson, passing Navy ships travel â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite a ways offshore to avoid shipping lanes, usually beyond the line of sight.â&#x20AC;? As these ships are in transit, there is occasional sonar training. How that sonar will impact North Coast marine mammals appears uncertain, given the relative lack of data. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only so much we know about marine mammals,â&#x20AC;? says Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But research by the Navy and outside organizations is continuing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenging to do the studies on wild animals, because they move.â&#x20AC;? As part of ongoing research, the Navy recorded over 10,000 hours of passive acoustic dataâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;human noise and animal vocalizationsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;over the past year, from two bottom-mounted buoys off the coast of Washington. These data will be analyzed at Scripps. Non-Navy researchers who want a network of hydrophones for less invasive study claim the Navy blocks collaborative efforts in the name of national securityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and that trumps environmental protections. But animal advocates push on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too much noise in the oceans now,â&#x20AC;? says Marcie Keever, of Friends of the Earth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And these animals canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover their ears.â&#x20AC;?

says Natsunaga. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who characterize it that way are giving short shrift to Navy lookouts, who are trained using protocols developed by the NMFS. People need to credit the Navy for caring about whales, too. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of our environmental stewardship. The ocean is where we work and live. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not wantonly going out there and sonifying the ocean.â&#x20AC;? Natsunaga explains that the Navy uses passive sonar listening in addition to binocular sightings to check for the presence of marine mammals before engaging in an operation. Passive sonar does not send out sound, but merely receives it. When marine mammals are sighted or heard, the submarine powers down and sonar is shut off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visual observations from ships are one of the few things you can use,â&#x20AC;? says Chip Johnson, a marine scientist for the Navy stationed in San Diego. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passive acoustic systems are also used but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always give you a rangeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work unless the marine mammal is vocalizing.

That’s right, Lyle Lovett, I’m not from Texas. But why mess with Texas? Californians are ranked happier than Texans, probably because our state’s prettier and smarter; the California Floristic Province is one of the most ecologically important regions in the world, and we’ve got more top-ranked universities than any other state. Sure, our government’s a mess, but why pride yourself on low Texas taxes when you’ve got one of the highest poverty rates in the country and rank among the least healthy? I’m sure, someday, our states will settle their differences over dinner at a taqueria. Still, Lyle Lovett, California wants you anyway.

It’s Tour de France time again, with Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen excitedly announcing the sprints at the end of each stage. The San Rafael Twilight Criterium, once called cycling’s answer to NASCAR, takes the intensity of those sprinting Tour de France finishes and lengthens it to an entire event. Hundreds of cyclists whir through downtown San Rafael at 40 miles per hour; the crowd drinks beer and waves cowbells at this big bike party, more festival than race in the downtime between heats. Then, the sun sets; likely with a higher crash rate, the races continue into the early night. Put the fun between your legs on Saturday, July 7, in downtown San Rafael. Fourth and Fifth streets, between A and D streets. 2–8pm. Free. No phone.

WE REACHED FOR THE STARS Jeff Daniels plays an Edward Murrowâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;type throwback in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Newsroom.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Steamed Anchor Everybody in the broadcast booth is het-up about the state of politics in Aaron Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Newsroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY SHONA SANZGIRI


or fans of Aaron Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s punchy, ham-ďŹ sted moralizing, Sunday, June 24, was a return to church. The writer debuted his new HBO drama, The Newsroom, steeling up the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already formidable rotation with a show about an idealistic newsman who wants to

make an honest wife out of cable news. In the space of one clumsy pilot episode, however, this was a dull axe to grind, bookending a potentially clever parody with indulgent dialogue and wistful histrionics for an America that never was. Where the show lands, it does so because Sorkin abuses a famous political maxim: Speak not at all softly, carry the biggest stick and

then club everyone to death with it as you make grandstanding value judgments. Jeff Daniels carries the stick as Will McAvoy, a surly anchor undergoing a transformation from milquetoast everyman to impassioned soothsayer. Following a slightly unhinged tirade made during an unusually engaging media panel, McAvoy and his team of crusaders at the Atlantic Cable News network

try to ďŹ&#x201A;ip the script of TV news overnight. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that easy. Network president and resident lush Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston) tells him as much: â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 10 minutes ago? We did the news well. You know how? We just decided to.â&#x20AC;? McAvoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new show is helmed by executive producer and onetime ďŹ&#x201A;ing Mackenzie MacHale, played with a skittish give and take by Emily Mortimer. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also young rogue producer Jim Harper (John Gallagher Jr.), a determined muss of bedhead and cunning who proves his mettle with little provocation. We hope to learn something about the two anonymous black characters, one of whom is â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart enoughâ&#x20AC;? to challenge Obama. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the problem of Slumdog Millionaireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dev Patel. The networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone blogger, he responds to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neal Sampatâ&#x20AC;? and occasionally to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Punjab,â&#x20AC;? which is a place in India and not, contrary to popular opinion, a name. To be fair, Patel is Punjabi! But still. The point is clear: McAvoy is one callous buzzard, concerned with â&#x20AC;&#x153;just the facts,â&#x20AC;? except when he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a burden also carried by the viewer. The show is so tantalizingly manipulative and dishonest that despite betraying the philosophical axis of its own premise, you stop caring. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to be dismantled by the blitzkrieg of Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dialogue, where characters donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just deal in measly small talk but also unpack monologues full of heightened imperatives and bite. No sound is without a scheme: the very leading lilt of Thomas Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piano, a thoughtful string or two, so much profundity and reďŹ&#x201A;ection and purpose to behold. Hardly a new ploy, ) 22 that. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re holding a

candle for high truth, let go and bask in the ďŹ&#x201A;ames. The pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plot unravels with fury. While MacHale plays to McAvoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroic, pained ego with Don Quixote references, Harper and Sampat alight on breaking news: an oil spill off the coast of Louisianaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the infamous Deepwater Horizon explosion of 2010. The disaster presents a opportunity for McAvoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;finest hour,â&#x20AC;? and where crickets once chirped, the studioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now full of movement and mayday appeals. They tie things up with a pristine bow, which means that thanks to not one but two family sources, Harper secures the story, positioning McAvoy as less like Jay Leno, more like Walter Cronkite. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back, baby! And he ďŹ nally remembers his assistantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, an unhinged blonde by the name of Margaret (Alison Pill, whose role as Zelda Fitzgerald in Woody Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Midnight in Paris proves sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capable of total wish fulďŹ llment). The hero rides off on his horse/donkey. For all of this, Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been skewered by (surprise) the media in a way that he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for a show like The West Wing or the doomsday prophecy that was 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Social Network. The Newsroom is as

overwrought and mythological, but instead of aiming his slingshot of morality at cold-blooded politicos or internet entrepreneurs, Sorkin is taking a weird slant on the news media, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already got enough people to do that (though they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t). This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the skeptical take of Paddy Chayefskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Network either, a ďŹ lm Sorkin is aware of but clearly not interested in remaking. The question isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is this show about?â&#x20AC;? though thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is this show about?â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and if you temporarily ignore the obviousness of seeing Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name hang a shade brighter than the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title, you can see the other chance for humor. In speaking with the New York Times, Keith Olbermann, the former sportsman turned progressive crank, humbly submitted himself as person of interest. It seems plausible given â&#x20AC;&#x153;Newsroomâ&#x20AC;? and its similarity to an earlier Sorkin show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sports Night.â&#x20AC;? Still, I suspect that Will McAvoy is reminiscent of a lot of people, and maybe a handful of them have something to do with the news. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cynic, but also a sentimentalist. He is an idea. He exists for more than our, or Aaron Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, ego. He exists to entertain. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Newsroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; airs Sundays at 10pm on HBO.

between Spreckels Performing Arts Center and Main Stage West. Packed with sharp writing and meaty roles, the production, directed by Keith Baker, features Miller as Eleanor of Aquitaine, the real-life wife and political sparring partner of Henry (played by Barry Martin). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eleanor is a badass,â&#x20AC;? remarks Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very passionate. She loves deeply and ďŹ ercely, and she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand being pitied.â&#x20AC;? In the play, as in real life, Eleanor has been imprisoned by Henry, who lets her out only once or twice a year. Set during Christmas Court, the action of the story revolves largely around the question of who will follow Henry to the throne. Vying for the position are Henry and Eleanorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three sonsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Richard, aka â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Lionheartâ&#x20AC;? (James Gagarin), Geoffrey (Grant Tambellini) and John (Lukas Thompson). Complicating matters is the manipulative presence of Alais (Ivy Miller), betrothed to Richard, but having a big, steamy affair with Henry. And in the midst of all this family drama, Eleanor arrives home for the holidays, with just 24 hours to accomplish a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of plotting and planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eleanor,â&#x20AC;? says Miller, â&#x20AC;&#x153;loves nothing more than she loves Henry. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been imprisoned by him for 10 years, so when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s let out, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like everything sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been holding in for the whole year comes outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all the love, all the anger, the resentment, the desire for revenge and the optimistic hope that Henry will somehow take her back, will bring her home at last.â&#x20AC;? Though Eleanor has some of the juiciest lines ever written for an actress, Miller believes the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best line belongs to Henry. At the end of the play, weary and exhausted, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could have conquered all of Europe, except that I had women in my life.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that,â&#x20AC;? says Miller, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a great line.â&#x20AC;?

PRONTO PenĂŠlope Cruz plays an accidental wife in Woodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Italian romp.

Cruz Control

Woody Allen travels from pleasant Paris to crumbling Rome BY RICHARD VON BUSACK


uge helpings of Roman vistas, including a 360degree shot of the Piazza del Popolo, are served up in Woody Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest ďŹ lm, To Rome with Love. Also served up are jokes older than Tacitus. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sprawling, multipart tale; Allen was evidently thinking Boccaccio, or at least Boccaccio â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70. PenĂŠlope Cruz plays a gold-hearted hooker interfering with a bewildered newlywed couple, Antonio (Alessandro Tiberi) and his very pretty and shy wife, Milly (Alessandra Mastronardi). Cruz concludes her utter conquest of Sophia Lorenism by getting a retro hairstyle, speaking Italian and wearing a skintight crimson dress. Unfortunately, this rare sight is introduced with the immemorial â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surprise! You have won a free prostitute!â&#x20AC;? farce. In a different triangle, Ellen Page plays a ďŹ&#x201A;ighty actress visiting a couple, Jack and Sally (Jesse Eisenberg and a squandered Greta Gerwig). Here, Page looks even more like a directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless construct than she did in Juno. As an unasked-for mentor, Alec Baldwin materializes to warn Jack about all those irresponsible triďŹ&#x201A;ing dames who listen to BartĂłk and pretend to read Yeats. (Take Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word for it, such girls are still roaming loose, wreaking havoc.) Allen himself plays a retiree going to Rome with his wife (Judy Davis, another rare sight); his time-tested chicken-liveredness begins on the Alitalia ďŹ&#x201A;ight (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turbulence, my favorite!â&#x20AC;?). And Roberto Benigni stars in a pay-off free snippet about the price of fame. And if one despairs at the Neil Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;esque lines in the ďŹ lm, one admires Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staging of gags, as in the story of an opera singer who can only perform under specialized conditions. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unignorable overlay of fogeyism here, however. Who goes to Rome and murmurs, as Baldwin does, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All these old ruins depress meâ&#x20AC;?? Two separate characters complain of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ozymandias melancholiaâ&#x20AC;? as they get in the way of the scenery. Ozymandias indeediusâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s falling apart here, Rome or Woody Allen?

Come Together Bill Frisell reimagines John Lennon BY HOLLY ABRAHAMS



feel so lucky. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe I get to do all of this stuff.â&#x20AC;? This â&#x20AC;&#x153;stuff,â&#x20AC;? as Bill Frisellâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the American jazz guitarist and composerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;terms it, is touring the world with his latest album, All We Are Saying. Released in September of last year, the 17-song acoustic collection features John Lennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beloved songs, half of which belong to his time with the Beatles. Frisell brings the tour to the Napa Valley Opera House on July 8. Never having recorded an album comprising solely cover songs, Frisell says the project was â&#x20AC;&#x153;put before him.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strange how this album came about,â&#x20AC;? he

says on the phone from a tour stop in Montreal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a way, it seems like an obvious thing to do, because that music has had a huge impact on me. I was 12 years old when I saw the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, just when I was getting ďŹ red up about the guitar. It really changed my life in the biggest way.â&#x20AC;? Known for his creative and expert use of guitar pedals, Frisellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretations are ridden with musical effects. Frisell stays true to his signature ethereal style by creating cinematic versions of the popular tunes; every song on the album is a fresh reimagining, and while sweet, a sense of longing underscores each track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In My Lifeâ&#x20AC;? is slowed down to sweet, forlorn effect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come Togetherâ&#x20AC;? is more bluesy, making it a deďŹ nite departure from the original. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother,â&#x20AC;? a signature Lennon song, also takes a turn down the blues path to become more melancholy than the original. The albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give Peace a Chance,â&#x20AC;? ties loosely to the original upbeat ditty, but ďŹ nds its own spiritual sound. Although Frisell is highly accomplishedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he has over 40 albums to his nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not done learning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The music has been around me my whole life, but in another way I feel like I am just beginning to get deeper into it. Every night there has been something more to uncover with this music.â&#x20AC;? In fact, All We Are Saying could be just the beginning of a series of Lennon-inspired albums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many John Lennon songs, we could easily do one or two more albums of just that music,â&#x20AC;? Frisell says, preferring to savor this moment instead of plan for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am usually doing a hundred different things at the same time, but this is one moment when I can focus on one project, and it feels really good.â&#x20AC;?

Art Honeymoon

Calistoga’s ECHO Gallery The typical honeymoon means lounging on Costa Rican beaches, simmering in onsens in Japan or relaxing at Niagara Falls. So how are artist-entrepreneurs Ann Trinca and J Kirk Feiereisen spending their postnuptial time together? Opening a gallery, of course. In downtown Calistoga, the Napa couple are transforming the old 4,000-squarefoot Silverado Pharmacy building into an alternative art space named ECHO, or “Every-Creative-Hand-Occupied.” “The focus will be a lot of local artists,” says Trinca, marketing and events manager at di Rosa Preserve. ECHO, she adds, is intended to be a space that will be “flexible, adaptable and responsive to its users.” Currently, ECHO is hosting its first exhibition, “Bright Moments,” titled in honor of a wedding poem written for them by Dominic Triglia (itself inspired by Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s “Bright Moments”). The show includes work from such local artists as Kristin Farr, Nancy Willis and Oscar Aguilar Olea. “We want to strengthen the evolving artistic community in the Napa Valley. We have a vision of a salon-style environment where everyone is welcome to look, listen and be heard,” says Feiereisen, who also owns Yo el Rey Roasting in Calistoga. Be there for a grand opening, with live music by Comfort Slacks, on Friday, July 6, at ECHO Gallery. 1348-A Lincoln Ave., Calistoga. 7pm. Free. 707.812.2201. —Catherine Zaw

For the week of July 4

ARIES (March 21–April 19) Members of the Nevada Republican Party have concocted a bizarre version of family values. A large majority of them are opposed to gay marriage and yet are all in favor of legal brothels. Their wacky approach to morality is as weird as that of the family values crowd in Texas, which thinks it’s wrong to teach adolescents about birth control, even though withholding this information this has led to a high rate of teen pregnancies. My question is, why do we let people with screwed-up priorities claim to be the prime caretakers of “family values”? In accordance with the astrological omens, I urge you to reject the conventional wisdom as you clarify what that term means to you. It’s an excellent time to deepen and strengthen your moral foundation. TAURUS (April 20–May 20) There’s a term for people who have the ardor of a nymphomaniac in their efforts to gather useful information: infomaniac. That’s exactly what I think you should be in the coming week. You need data and evidence, and you need them in abundance. What you don’t know would definitely hurt you, so make sure you find out everything you need to know. Be as thorough as a spy, as relentless as a muckraking journalist and as curious as a child. (P.S.: See if you can set aside as many of your strong opinions and emotional biases as possible. Otherwise they might distort your quest for the raw truth. Your word of power is empirical.)

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) Of all the signs of the zodiac, you’re the best at discovering short cuts. No one is more talented than you at the art of avoiding boredom. And you could teach a master course in how to weasel out of strenuous work without looking like a weasel. None of those virtues will come in handy during the coming week, however. The way I see it, you should concentrate very hard on not skipping any steps. You should follow the rules, stick to the plan and dedicate yourself to the basics. Finish what you start, please! (Sorry about this grind-it-out advice. I’m just reporting what the planetary omens are telling me.) CANCER (June 21–July 22) The epic breadth of your imagination is legendary. Is there anyone else who can wander around the world without ever once leaving your home? Is there anyone else who can reincarnate twice in the span of few weeks without having to go through the hassle of actually dying? And yet now and then there do come times when your fantasies should be set aside so that you may soak up the teachings that flow your way when you physically venture outside of your comfort zone. Now is such a moment, my fellow Cancerian. Please don’t take a merely virtual break in the action. Get yourself away from it all, even if it’s only to the marvelous diversion or magic sanctuary on the other side of town.

LEO (July 23–August 22) In Norse mythology, Fenrir was a big bad wolf that the gods were eager to keep tied up. In the beginning, they tried to do it with metal chains, but the beast broke free. Then they commissioned the dwarves to weave a shackle out of six impossible things: a bear’s sinews, a bird’s spit, a fish’s breath, a mountain’s root, a woman’s beard and the sound a cat’s paws made as it walked. This magic fetter was no thicker than a silk ribbon, but it worked very well. Fenrir couldn’t escape from it. I invite you to take inspiration from this story, Leo. As you deal with your current dilemma, don’t try to fight strength with strength. Instead, use art, craft, subtlety and even trickery. I doubt you’ll need to gather as many as six impossible things. Three will probably be enough. Two might even work fine. VIRGO (August 23–September 22) This is a time when your personal actions will have more power than usual to affect the world around you. The ripples you set in motion could ultimately touch people you don’t even know and transform situations you’re not part of. That’s a lot of responsibility! I suggest, therefore, that you be on your best behavior. Not necessarily your mildest, most polite behavior, mind you. Rather, be brave, impeccable, full of integrity, and a little wild. LIBRA (September 23–October 22) Goldfish that are confined in small aquariums stay small. Those

that spend their lives in ponds get much bigger. What can we conclude from these facts? The size and growth rate of goldfish are directly related to their environment. I’d like to suggest that a similar principle will apply to you Librans in the next 10 months. If you want to take maximum advantage of your potential, you will be wise to put yourself in spacious situations that encourage you to expand. For an extra boost, surround yourself with broad-minded, uninhibited people who have worked hard to heal their wounds.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

Over the years, you’ve explored some pretty exotic, even strange ideas about what characterizes a good time. In the coming days, I’m guessing you will add to your colorful tradition with some rather unprecedented variations on the definition of “pleasure” and “happiness.” I don’t mean to imply that this is a problem. Not at all. To paraphrase the Wiccan credo, as long as it harms no one (including yourself), anything goes.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) There come times in your life when you have a sacred duty to be open to interesting tangents and creative diversions, times when it makes sense to wander around aimlessly with wonder in your eyes and be alert for unexpected clues that grab your attention. But this is not one of those times, in my opinion. Rather, you really do need to stay focused on what you promised yourself you would concentrate on. The temptation may be high to send out sprays of arrows at several different targets. But I hope that instead you stick to one target and take careful aim with your best shots.

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) I’ve been meditating on a certain need that you have been neglecting, Capricorn—a need that has been chronically underestimated, belittled or ignored, by both you and others. I am hoping that this achy longing will soon be receiving some of your smart attention and tender care. One good way to get the process started is simply to acknowledge its validity and importance. Doing so will reveal a secret that will help you attend to your special need with just the right touch. AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Due to the pressure-packed influences currently coming to bear on your destiny, you have Official Cosmic Permission to fling three dishes against the wall (but no more than three). If you so choose, you also have clearance to hurl rocks in the direction of heaven, throw darts at photos of your nemeses and cram a coconut cream pie into your own face. Please understand, however, that taking actions like these should be just the initial phase of your master plan for the week. In the next phase, you should capitalize on all the energy you’ve made available for yourself through purgative acts like the ones I mentioned. Capitalize how? For starters, you could dream and scheme about how you will liberate yourself from things that make you angry and frustrated. PISCES (February 19–March 20)

Check to see if you’re having any of the following symptoms: (1) sudden eruptions of gratitude; (2) a declining fascination with conflict; (3) seemingly irrational urges that lead you to interesting discoveries; (4) yearnings to peer more deeply into the eyes of people you care about; (5) a mounting inability to tolerate boring influences that resist transformation; or (6) an increasing knack for recognizing and receiving the love that’s available to you. If you’re experiencing at least three of the six symptoms, you are certifiably in close alignment with the cosmic flow and should keep doing what you’ve been doing. If none of these symptoms have been sweeping through you, get yourself adjusted.
