AFTER 30 years of watching our great country fall into political decay, I wonder if our leaders will ever learn? I guess they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I left the Democratic Party and joined the Progressives. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m supporting Rocky Anderson for the next President of the United States! When I heard him speak a few weeks ago, I knew this was the man who could turn this country around. I urge you to please check out his website, VoteRocky.org. I believe he could very well be the next FDR. Richard Whitney Santa Cruz County

And for those reasons, I appreciate the truths of this article. The truth is that Occupy Santa Cruz is not representative of the 99 percent of us. The truth is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same tiny group of anarchists who make all the headlines and attend all the protests but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t represent the beliefs of my community. Fewer than two dozen, if that. A splinter group in the larger picture that is the Santa Cruz Community. No more numerous or significant than the Quakers or fundamentalist Hassidics or Wiccans. Louder and more eager for publicity, perhaps; but absolutely no larger or more representative of Santa Cruz. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for Brad wearing his topcoat and joyously hopscotching while Frey quotes

legal precedents; if those are their ideals and beliefs and how they wish to express them, then more power to them. But please, stop insulting my intelligence with your protestations and claims that your represent the majority of us. Not truth. And stop taking credit for representing me and my 99 percent colleagues. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll speak for myself, and thank you not to. Chris Kaster

The Biggest Problem The 180/180 Campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bold move on chronic homelessness

M

BY GEORGIA PERRY

MONICA Martinez, executive director of the Homeless Services Center, is not using her time efficiently. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committing an entire morning to Walter (not his real name), a very skinny homeless man with a bushy beard, leathery skin and a mumbly way of talking. She is taking him to the local Department of Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Affairs office to get him signed up for benefits, hopefully including a housing voucher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entitled to veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; benefits but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not receiving a dollar from them. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never even gotten registered, because nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walked him through the

process. You know what?â&#x20AC;? Martinez lowers her voice, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the executive director of this organization. The last thing I should be doing is taking a homeless guy to the VA. This is not a best practice.â&#x20AC;? And then she does something very odd for a person speaking about chronic, debilitating homelessnessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she smiles. She smiles because she believes she knows how to end homelessness, once and for all. She smiles because, in the long run, she believes what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing with Walter is very much a best practice. Martinez cares deeply about homeless people, yes, but it becomes clear from talking to her that what she loves most is solving problems.

Martinezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background is in something called Permanent Supportive Housing, which she describes breathlessly as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ultimate solution.â&#x20AC;? It is a model for solving the problem of homelessness, and it is the backbone of a national grassroots effort called the 100,000 Homes Campaign. With this model, homeless individuals are put into housingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;literally, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an apartment, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a key,â&#x20AC;? no questions askedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and wrapped in any and all supportive services they may need for the rest of their lives until they die, hopefully with dignity and indoors. The national campaign aims to find permanent housing for 100,000

chronically homeless Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning people who have suffered long-term or repeated homelessness coupled with a disabilityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by July 2014. So far, the campaign has housed over 17,000 people. It has outposts in 130 communities, including Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and San Jose. This May, Santa Cruz joined the campaign and committed to house 180 homeless individuals in our community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re helping 180 individuals do a 180 in their lives,â&#x20AC;? explains campaign project manager Philip Kramer, a fit, affable man who got into this kind of work after over a decade spent in ad sales in New York City left him emotionally unfulfilled. Last month about 100 volunteers kicked off the program by venturing out into homeless campsites at 4 in the morning and conducting a â&#x20AC;&#x153;vulnerability index.â&#x20AC;? They asked more than 300 homeless people what medical conditions they had, how long they had been homeless and other questions in order to determine who the 180 most vulnerable are. To qualify as vulnerable, a person had to have been homeless for at least six months (though the average length of time homeless for the most vulnerable was eight years) and have at least one of the following conditions: liver disease, end-stage kidney disease, HIV/AIDS, over 60 years old, history of cold weather injuries, three or more Emergency Department visits in the past three months, three or more hospital visits in the past year, or trimorbidityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a combination of mental health, substance abuse and chronic medical problems. The team identified 155 people who met the criteria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re vulnerable to dying on the streets,â&#x20AC;? says Kramer. In a twisted way, these â&#x20AC;&#x153;most vulnerableâ&#x20AC;? are also who the winners areâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;those who will potentially receive housing through the campaign. 3&

The Neediest Now that these people are identified, Project 180/180 has moved into its next phaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;trying to get them into permanent housing. To do this, the campaign is asking for a very big favor from the Housing Authority of Santa Cruz County. Project 180 is asking for the Housing Authority to set aside two Section 8 vouchers each month to this chronically homeless population. Ken Cole, director of the Housing Authority, says there are currently 15,000 families on the waiting list for Section 8 housing. Fifteen thousand, he repeats. Now take into account that only 40-50 vouchers are up for grabs each month. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so many families that Cole says the average wait time to get into a unit is four to five years. So many people are on the list that the Housing Authority had to stop accepting new applicants last year. Kramer, Martinez and company want not only to add 180 new names to the closed list, they want to bump them to the front of the list (at a rate of two per month) to guarantee these people housing above everyone else on the list who, by the way, is struggling tooâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Section 8 is. This puts Cole and the Housing Authority in quite a situation. Martinez and Kramer, of course make sense. They cite relentlessly the homelessness census taken by

Watsonville-based Applied Survey Research, which found that the average age of death on the streets is 49 years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this was happening to any other population weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d stop dead in our tracks and go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wait a minute, something is wrong,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Kramer. Still, to ask to have these people skip the five-years-long line, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge. The list in Santa Cruz County has always operated on a first-come, first-served basis. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dying of cancer? Sorry, you have to wait. No, really. Cole has literally had people die of cancer while waiting on that list. He has disabled people on his wait list, he has elderly people on his list, he has plenty of people on his list who are at-risk. So really, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraspecial, extra-needy about the 180? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different about a homeless guy like Walter and the guy on Coleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list dying of cancer? Well, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one really big difference: The guy with cancer is paying his own medical bills.

Doing the Math Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the deal: This population, the chronically homelessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is really expensive to a community. They get arrested all the time because sleeping on the streets is illegal; they take ambulance rides to the emergency room (â&#x20AC;&#x153;An ambulance ride in Santa Cruz County is $1,000. Straight up,â&#x20AC;? says Kramer); when they go to the hospital they stay for three or five days instead of the one day a person

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about these guys, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re spending a lot of money keeping them outside, so we should care,â&#x20AC;? says Jennifer Loving, executive director of Destination Home, one of several organizations involved in the Santa Clara County arm of the 100,000 Homes campaign. Martinez says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have chronically homeless people in our community. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to exist. We have two options. Option A is to apply a smart, evidence-based solution that saves money and saves lives. Option B is to say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to do anything. And by doing nothing we are saying by default that the hospital, the emergency room, the jails and our police officers are going to be the default social workers for these people. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re investing the dollars either way.â&#x20AC;? Cole says the Housing Authority will make a recommendation on whether or not to give Project 180/180 the two vouchers a month at their next meeting on July 25. He says he is supportive of Project 180 in general but hesitant to open the can of worms that could, and likely would, come with changing the first-come first-served structure the Section 8 list operates with now. How many other groups would come knocking on their door, seeking special consideration too? Kramer says that the group of 180 alone deserves preference because, until now, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been overlooked, underrepresented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at Walter!â&#x20AC;? chimes in Martinez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in line. Walter doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his paperwork all neatly filled out. And if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do something Walter will be dead next year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know [Project 180 is] very eager,â&#x20AC;? says Cole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re researching it.â&#x20AC;?

with a house stays, since the hospital has nowhere to release them while they recover. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow their prescriptions, so a couple months later theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back at the hospital again with the same infection. Martinez says that out of the group of â&#x20AC;&#x153;vulnerableâ&#x20AC;? homeless they have identified so far, 37 of those are â&#x20AC;&#x153;highly vulnerable,â&#x20AC;? and together that group of 37 has visited the ER almost 70 times in the last six months. The average cost of a hospital admission is $8,500. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost $600,000. Housing this specific, chronically homeless population frees up money and time to devote to the rest of the homeless population, Martinez argues. There are about 2,700 homeless in the county. A lot of them only needs things like meals, job training and a deposit check, and then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back on their feet. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reasoning behind Project 180/180 and the Permanent Supportive Housing modelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this small population thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sucking up most of the resources. Deal with them, and everyone else in the system can start getting the hand up that they need and be on their way. Last month, a study came out of Los Angeles analyzing the Permanent Supportive Housing model as it was used on Project 50â&#x20AC;&#x201D;an effort to house 50 chronically homeless individuals in the Skid Row section of Los Angeles. The study found that between 2008 and 2010, the housing program cost L.A. County $3.045 million but generated $3.284 million in estimated cost savings, mostly from fewer incarceration and medical costs. This, the proponents of Permanent Supportive Housing argue, is proof that housing chronically homeless individuals and providing them with the supportive services they need is actually cheaper than leaving them on the streets. UCSC economics professor David Kaun was gracious enough to look at these results for the Weekly, and had this to say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;These results are ridiculous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so obvious itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad.â&#x20AC;? More than 60 studies have been done nationwide on the Permanent Supportive Housing model, and they all come up with results like this L.A. studyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no-brainer money savings.

Cats Suffer in Silence They are among the toughest most stubborn creatures on the earth. They usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let on that they have a problem.  This makes it difficult for us to know when they are sick or injured.  As cats age they are more likely to develop chronic illness. Due to the slow progression of such illnesses, the changes are extremely small and barely noticeable from one day to . cat doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain the next.  The and maybe she just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t jump as high as she used to.  Maybe he is eating a little less, or more, or urinating more, or drinking more.  These are only some tell tale signs of a problem, there are many others.  Cancer, Osteoarthritis, Chronic Kidney disease, Hyperthyroidism, Dental disease, and many more maladies can be insidious in onset.  You may not notice the early signs.  Many times I see cats with caring and attentive humans that had no idea they had a problem or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how bad it was. Since cats wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about their problems, regular evaluations once to twice a year are essential. If you think your cat may be sick, he is and worse than you think.  Get him evaluated quickly because if it is something serious, the sooner we start treatment, the better the chances are for recovery.

There are plenty of obvious questions a skeptic could ask about this program. Are we really going to move drug addicts who have been chronically homeless for 20 years into apartment buildings next to unsuspecting community members? Kramer says they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask about the criminal backgrounds of the homeless they surveyed, and he stumbles a bit over an explanation for why not: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like it wasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this really was meant to be a health survey.â&#x20AC;?

(The answer is yes, we are providing that.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;The population weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with is so ill that if you listed the top 10 things that they needed today, a job would not be one of them,â&#x20AC;? says Martinez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They need to get the infection in their foot figured out, they have a broken tooth, they have a warrant for their arrest for, like, not paying a citation from 1981, they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slept in three days. We really need to rebuild these human beings before we can expect them to get a job.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea behind Permanent Supportive Housing is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permanent. This is very likely the place these people will stay for the rest of their lives,â&#x20AC;? says Kramer. Martinez says Project 180/180 is relying on community volunteers to act as some sort of advocate (she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet thought of a name for that role) for the individuals, visiting regularly and helping them figure out grocery shopping and basic grooming, maybe encourage them to go to substance abuse counseling. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confident community members will step up, as the project scored more than 100 volunteers for registry week in May. But registry week was a commitment of a few hoursâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking volunteers to commit

1'

to the rest of a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tall order, especially if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about people who are so sick they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a key in a lock and turn it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more glaring question the studiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all of them over shortterm periods and conducted in the last 10 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;fail to answer: Is this actually a cost savings in the long term? If the program is so successful that Walter lives to the ripe old age of 75, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that change the economic calculus? Maybe so. But economics professor Kaun says our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of spending money is already so messed up, something needs to be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always best to try and avoid the problem than to try and deal with it afterwards,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way we deal with the homeless is the same idiotic way we deal with, quote, the prison population. Putting people in prison is so much more expensive than providing services and so forth, where a lot of these people could get help. The health system is the same. We pay 10 times as much to let people get sick and then cure them.â&#x20AC;? Analicia Cube, founder of Take Back Santa Cruz, says she supports the program, and especially supports Martinez (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t she awesome?â&#x20AC;?). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have to put faith and hope that this is going to pan out correctly and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be abused,â&#x20AC;? Cube says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What other choice do we have? We can sit idle where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been for fear of movement or we can go forward with some of these creative new ideas and hope for the best.â&#x20AC;? Martinez is confident that no hope is necessaryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this program will work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Permanent Supportive Housing works. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the national solution to homelessness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to end homelessness.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do something differently, Walter will be dead next year. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living a very hard life. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chronic alcoholic. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been homeless for 23 years. He broke his shoulder last year because he crashed his bike while riding over the railroad tracks drunk. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a mess. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve created these systems he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t navigate. So as a result heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still living out there ready to die, and being very expensive, to be crass.â&#x20AC;? 0

BRIEFS

Study Brakes The environmental impact report for the Santa Cruz YZhVa^cVi^dceaVci, originally due September 2011, has been delayed a second time. Now city staff has given up on estimating specific months and instead started ballparking seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying fall of 2012,â&#x20AC;? desal program coordinator =Z^Y^ AjX`ZcWVX] says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complicated, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to meet that.â&#x20AC;? Luckenbach says turnover in the water department staff and time spent on other planning projects contributed to the delays. Staffers are largely looking at three considerations in the draft EIR for the $115 million project. First of all, they are trying to determine the best location and design for the seawater intake valves. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also looking at the impacts of disposing of post-desal brineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which will be mixed with treated sewage water and pumped to seaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and at energy consumption. HdfjZa8gZZ`LViZg9^hig^Xi, which will use the plant over 90 percent of the time, and the HVciV8gjo8^in 8djcX^a, which aims to cut the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon emissions 30 percent by 2020, both want the desal plant to be carbon neutral. (Some of the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon impact would be offset with buying carbon credits.) After the draft comes out, it will enter a period of public comment. After the 60- to 90-day comment period, staff will respond individually to each comment in the EIRâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which Luckenbach says is already two or three inches thick, or about 500 pagesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in addition to supporting documents. And it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be getting any shorter, either. Luckenbach is anticipating a lot of comments on the draft EIR. So is EVja<gVio of G^\]iidKdiZ dc9ZhVa. Gratz expects desal watchers from all over the country to scour the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a battle, and it will be a big opportunity for local and national questions and comment,â&#x20AC;? Gratz says. Barring any setbacks, Luckenbach hopes staff, along with Soquel Creek Water District, will spend six months responding to comments and finish the report by fall 2013, well before an election on the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fate, which could be held as early as June 2014.

As a child, I went through an anemic phase, a very tired time punctuated by my mother chasing me around the house with a dropper of metallic drops to squirt on my tongue. I was 4. This explains the wave of horror I felt some weeks ago when, after examining my tongue, my ayurvedic doctor stated matterof-factly: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, yeah, you are anemic, my friend.â&#x20AC;? Chomping copious amounts of iron-rich beets and kale, per her orders, I began to feel a bit more energetic, and also to obsess. I found that food writer Molly Wizenberg

has also been recently diagnosed with anemia, which, she wrote in her blog, â&#x20AC;&#x153;at least partly explained why I had nearly dozed off at a stoplight a couple of times and once cried when I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a kitchen drawer to open.â&#x20AC;? Wait. So iron deficiency could also be the culprit of my inexplicable bouts of unprovoked frustration? And should I be consuming â&#x20AC;&#x153;the good, grass-fed kindâ&#x20AC;? of beef that Wizenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doctor prescribed her? And most terrifyingly, was it time to seek the dreaded iron drops of my youth?

My research tirade would not be calmed until the voice of Dr. Priya Chakravarthi sang to me a few days ago from her office in Palo Alto, where she works as a hematologist and oncologist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anemia is really a symptom,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Chakravarthi corrected me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because the causes can be very different and varied.â&#x20AC;? Red blood cells should typically circulate for 90-120 days, but often break down much faster in anemics. Deficiency in iron or in B12 are two of the most common causes of anemia, especially for premenopausal women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our bodies are actually quite efficient in holding on to iron, so unless thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prolonged durations of poor production or prolonged duration of increased bleeding, we

do not lose iron easily,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But women, being prone to having monthly bleeding, can become iron deficient, and unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identified they may live with anemia for a very long time.â&#x20AC;? Though the body may be able to adapt to some degree of anemia, many women Dr. Chakravarthi sees donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize just how bad they were feeling until they begin taking iron supplements. This especially occurs in women with â&#x20AC;&#x153;dysfunctional uterine bleeding,â&#x20AC;? a hellish-sounding condition in which women have their menses for two weeks at a time. So what about crying at a stuck kitchen drawer? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There may certainly be mood disturbances in association with extreme fatigue,â&#x20AC;? replies Dr. Chakravarthi. Shortness of breath, inability to exercise, pallor of the tongue and whites of the eyes and â&#x20AC;&#x153;picaâ&#x20AC;? (the curious condition of craving crunchy substances, and perhaps an evolutionary reaction to low iron) are other symptoms of anemia. A full blood test is the best way to gauge the level and causes of anemia, but those without health insurance may have to play more of a trial-anderror game with the supplement aisle of our local pharmacy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically when somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deficient of iron you would need often 50-100mg of elemental iron,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Chakravarthi, who warns that packages may be misleading in the amount of elemental iron they actually contain. More severe cases should probably go for the drops. As for that medium rare lamb chop that I recently dreamed about: â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be able to eat that much red meat to the extent that it could actually replenish iron sources [in moderate to extreme cases of anemia] is probably not going to be healthy from many other standpoints,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Chakravarthi. In other words, try a multivitamin and eat more kale.0

Fans have called Be Not Content â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s memoir ever.â&#x20AC;? And cyberpunk author Rudy Rucker says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody ever wrote about the psychedelic revolution as well as William Craddock.â&#x20AC;? Broader examination will now determine whether popular acclaim rises to those enthusiastic appraisals, now that author Rucker has reissued the longtime Santa Cruzanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel, 42 years after its initial publication. Be Not Content is certainly one of the genreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most authentic examples, more an autobiographical, insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey than Tom Wolfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playful, entertaining 1968 new journalistic masterpiece, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Craddockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was less a curious spectacle than selfdiscovery laced with conflict, pathos and style characteristic of psychedelic inward exploration and alienation. I got to know Craddock a bit when he ran a classic motorcycle shop on the west side of Santa Cruz in 1981 with Pat Simmons of the ¨ $

Tall and Zen-like, Craddock at 34 wore a skull earring and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind a recent college grad badgering him with silly questions about a writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turning 30 was a trip,â&#x20AC;? he told me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was ludicrous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just ridiculous to be alive at that old age.â&#x20AC;? He told me he grew up middle class in Los Gatos and rode with a San Jose outlaw club, the Night Riders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good lads. Misunderstood was all,â&#x20AC;? he deadpanned. There was little to suggest that the relaxed and easygoing guy behind the cash register at the motorcycle shop would be rediscovered 30 years later by a major author and hailed as one of the most important voices of a pivotal era. Simmons closed the shop and moved away from Santa Cruz a few years later. The Craddocks bought a home in Soquel and lived in the Santa Cruz area until his death in 2004, at 57. Teresa works weekends at an art glass store on the coast and gave Rucker the green light to publish the new edition, which has a photograph she took of him in the early 1980s in Oaxaca on the cover. (A colorized version appears on this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;He got better looking as he got older,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy that Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting the recognition he certainly deserves,â&#x20AC;? Simmons wrote in an email this week, when he heard of Be Not Contentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A great guy, and a talented, creative writer.â&#x20AC;? Simmons says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s read another unpublished Craddock manuscript and thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even stronger than his published works.

Chapter Four

We Will Attain New Realms by William J. Craddock [The setting is Boulder Creek.] Larry parked the car in front of a little elf-like hidden mountain cabin surrounded by a small herd of beatup VWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, panel trucks, dented Fords and Chevies. I climbed out and stood in the yard, hearing unreal drifting music and crowd-sound. The tworoom cabin was so full of people that I hesitated at the door, thinking that, if one more person stepped inside, the structure would rip out at the seams, leaving an untidy pile of rubble and many angry strangers pointing accusing fingers in my direction. But Ted said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cumon in, Abel,â&#x20AC;? holding the door open for me, so I took a deep breath and crossed the threshold. The cabin miraculously remained intact, and the door banged shut behind me as I stepped over and around stretched-out bodies, trying to avoid tramping people while I peered through the smoky dark. A single blue lamp lit the room. Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s then new album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;another sideâ&#x20AC;? was filling the heavy air with sound as it turned thirty-three and a third times per minute on an unseen stereo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all just a dream, babe / a vacuum, a scheme, babe . . .â&#x20AC;? sang Dylan in his rasping, nasal, thirsty, suffering and perfect voice. Like an idiot I froze and did a big, low, gulping â&#x20AC;&#x153;uuh,â&#x20AC;? hearing what he was saying for the first time. I mean, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d listened to Dylan before. I owned his albums and sat in front of record players while his words banged against my head. I even told people how much I liked Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; what a great â&#x20AC;&#x153;folk-singerâ&#x20AC;? he was. But this time, frozen to the floor, mouth hanging open, I heard Dylan, and apologized to his genius for never having listened. A gigantic brass water pipe, containing nearly two lids of smoldering weed, stood on its dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paw supports between two fantastic men. One wore a handlebar mustache with the ends waxed sharpâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;round, rimless glasses on the


17 eyebrows when he saw me, walked over and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well yes indeed. Abel. Abel Egregore, I do believe. You meet the least likely. Mmmhmmm.â&#x20AC;? With my eyes all over the lovely black girl, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hullo . . . uh, Curt, and . . . â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her nameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeri,â&#x20AC;? said Curt, putting his arm around her waist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes. Mmmmhmm.â&#x20AC;? Ted told Curt that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d taken acid, indicating, I suspected, that I could now be spoken to on a different level. I hoped to prove worthy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ah!â&#x20AC;? said Curt, extending his left arm as Jeri wandered off silently. He let his arm fall to his side, empty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome to the Land of the Damned.â&#x20AC;? He showed me his teeth, covered them, and walked away. The room seemed to go quieter. I thought I heard the sound of uncomfortable body-shifts. Paranoid visions of elaborate deceptions elbowed for center stage. I turned to Ted, suddenly suspicious. He read my eyes and shrugged the message off with, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Curtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spaced behind negative energy tonight. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decided to play the anti-Christ. Ignore it, man. Forget it.â&#x20AC;? He guided me around the room, introducing me to what seemed to be an endless number of beautiful and strange people all full of smiles and glad hellos. Somebody, maybe several somebodies were singing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream . . . â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow!â&#x20AC;? I groaned, hearing it heavy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s . . . wow.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153; . . . merrily, merrily, merrily,

merrily. Life is but a dream. Yes life is but a dream. Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream . . .â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ted, I never heard that before. I mean, I heard it, but I never heard it. You know? Everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s . . . â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, man. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really all that big. Dig?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sure got a lot of thinkin to do. I feel like . . . I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just been . . . ah, shit, I wish I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so stoned so I could talk to you. Except . . . if I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so stoned, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be talking to you. I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been blind. Yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;know? I feel like I oughta be thanking everyone. God, this must really sound stupid to you. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talkin about.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think maybe you do. Just let it all go, man.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanna make a fool of myself, man. I feel so good, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll blow it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all fools. If you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a fool, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already one step up. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dig some people,â&#x20AC;? and Ted steered me around the cabin again, telling me names that slipped right on through, showing me faces that merged into a smiling montage. The night was all joyous discoveries, many of which brought me almost to the point of tears, to laughter and astonished wows regularly. Whole new horizons. I felt humble and honored to be in a room with and listening to such enlightened powers. I felt in flash after flash that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been so high before, never so aware and neverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least not since a long, long halfremembered time agoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;so hopeful and happy. One of the few faults Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d found with weed was the fact that it was hard to be violent while you were behind it. In

This was before the promo-men leapt on the letters of the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and discovered that it could be painted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;psychedelicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and sold for money

the bike clubs, we called it being yellowfucked, and you had to counteract the feeling with plenty of wine, or else you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to fight or even bug anybody, which is dangerous when the people around you do. Now, talking (or rather listeningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I said very little) to these new-found friends, I came to the realization that this was not the fault of weed, but the fault of fighting. Nobody wanted to fight. The talk was of loveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a word Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been ashamed to say aloudâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and of enlightenment, which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d read about and thought about abstractly, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think â&#x20AC;&#x153;real peopleâ&#x20AC;? discussed. There was talk of change and of a peaceful, world-wide revolution of all-powerful understanding and love. The talk was of love, all the more exciting and beautiful because it seemed honest. This was shortly before the mass media and the merchants and promo-men leapt on the printed letters of the word and discovered that it could be painted â&#x20AC;&#x153;psychedelicâ&#x20AC;? and sold in brilliantly colored plastics for some money. The talk was of love, and it ripped my mind time and time again to realize that it had been said by so many prophets from the beginning of consciousness, and no one wanted to listen. Now someone was listening, and we swore (I, silently) that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never stop listening and never forget. It was all so simple. No obstacles that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crumble under the bright light of the truth of love. I watched and listened and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My God . . . it might just happen!â&#x20AC;? and fell asleep in the first, gray glow of dawn on the crowded floor of the quiet cabin, in between Ted and a heart-pulling little eighteen-year-old chick who told me that the name, Abel, was very important. Her name was Julia Cain and she inspired dreams. Long dreams of brave, reverent, clear-eyed Neo-American Indians, standing on wind-blown high mountain sides, watching the godless, blind-worm, white, sprawling civilization vomit and cough itself to death in the garbage-pit valleys below. Waiting for the world to begin. It will be beautiful. It will be real this time.0 @cQYS`]\1`ORR]QY¨ &

very tip of his nose like Ben Franklin. He looked to be about twenty-four. The other had long, light brown hair and a huge whiskbroom mustache that drooped almost to his chin. They sat Buddha-like on crossed legs, facing each other, engaged in serious dope smoking and conversation. Blue haze and paisleys everywhere. All signs pointing straight or crooked to very high Up. I felt that the whole thing was being staged for my benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will attain new realms,â&#x20AC;? said the whiskbroom Buddha. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be the first stumbling mortals to break through on holy hemp. I can feel the ole Void pulling for us.â&#x20AC;? He took an incredible pull on the pipe and passed the mouthpiece with a grand flourish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I rejoice at your coming death, Baxtor,â&#x20AC;? said his companion. Taking the mouthpiece once more, Baxter nodded, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will miss your doomed, but pleasant, Carlgame, Carl.â&#x20AC;? Exhaling, Carl said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not from the Final All of the Void, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;True,â&#x20AC;? replied Baxtor, rocking happily with his hands on his knees.

My attention was so totally ensnared by these two stoned sages and their (in the state I was in) temptingly meaningful, frustratingly obscure conversation, that Ted was shaking my shoulder and saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You all right, man? Hey, you okay?â&#x20AC;? before I even realized heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been talking to me. I smiled and pointed to the pair on either side of the hookah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy wise men. Listen. Wow.â&#x20AC;? Ted smiled back and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baxtor and Carl. This is Carlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabin. Carl . . . Baxtor . . . this is Abel.â&#x20AC;? Carl extended his hand, and I took it. Baxtor extended the hookahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouthpiece, and I took that. Beyond high now.

Death of Hippie Hope BY RUDY RUCKER Billy Craddock was born July 16, 1946, and grew up in Los Gatos, the son of William and Camille Craddock. The family was well-off, with William Sr. an executive. As a teenager, Billy said he expected to die at 22, but that he wanted to be a Hells Angel and a published author by the time he was 21. At 19 he joined the outlaw Night Riders motorcycle club of San Jose for a few years. He finished writing his classic psychedelic novel three months after turning 21. Be Not Content reads as if written by a mature professional. Be Not Content appeared in a Doubleday Projections edition in 1970. In a note written for Gale Contemporary Authors, he reported, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doubleday tentatively accepted Be Not Content in 1968. While waiting for the anticipated wild joy of actual publication I wrote a second and much longer novel entitled Backtrack, which followed the first bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main characters through the disillusioning reentry years immediately after the winter of 1967 and the death of hippie-hope. This grand opus was rejected after due consideration.â&#x20AC;? Craddock finished the first draft of Be Not Content in September, 1967, and two months later he married Carole Anne Bronzich for a year and a half. In 1972, Doubleday published Craddockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downbeat Twilight Candelabra, a novel involving Satanism and a murder. In 1975 he married for the second time, to Teresa Lynne Thorne, a native of San Jose. Billy wrote a somewhat autobiographical California novel, The Fading Grass. For whatever reason it was deemed unpublishable. Finally, in 1976, aged 30, Billy wrote one more novel, A Passage of Shadows, and that one also failed to sell. At this point he abandoned his career as a novelist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the publishing that matters,â&#x20AC;? Billy would gamely tell Teresa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the writing.â&#x20AC;? I got my first copy of Be Not Content in 1972, shortly after taking a job as an assistant professor at a small college in upstate New York. I quickly began to idolize Craddock. I had my own memories of the psychedelic

revolution, and when reading Be Not Content I feltâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes. This is the way it was. This guy got it right.â&#x20AC;? I wrote Craddock a fan letter. Billy wrote a friendly note back, saying he was happy to know someone was reading him â&#x20AC;&#x153;over on the other side of the island.â&#x20AC;? In 1986, when I moved to Los Gatos, I learned that Craddock had grown up in my new town. Years went by. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d lent out my original copy of Be Not Content without getting it back, and in 2003 I decided I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live without it any longer. I bought a used copy online for the exorbitant price of $140. I had some hope of meeting Billy Craddock. But then it was too late. A fan whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bought Craddockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old motorcycle emailed that Billy had died on March 16, 2004. I went to the library to look up his obit. I pulled open a huge flat metal drawer of microfilm boxes. My hand reached in and plucked out the box with Billyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obit. I went to the microfilm reader, the same big clunky kind of machine as ever, and ground forward past March 16, 2004. I was looking for a big article, but it was just a little tiny thing on March 20, with a picture of Billy looking tired and sad, his eyes hidden in dark sockets, the obit written by, I think, his widow Teresa. How little recognition my hero received. This year, I went ahead and made an agreement with Teresa Craddock that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d republish Be Not Content myself. I feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very important book that needs to be remembered. A key point that he makes is that taking psychedelic trips was never, or at least not for very long, fun, in the usual sense of the word. There were three problematic areas: freak-outs, seeing God and coming down. My friend Nick Herbert of Boulder Creek, an aging hippie writer himself, puts it like this: Be Not Content is a littleappreciated masterpiece. Craddock truly captures the idealistic intensity of those days when we all felt that enlightenment, wisdom, telepathy, alien contact and/or Childhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End was so close you could almost smell it. Where anything seemed possible and every encounter felt like it could be the door to another world. Where did all that wildness go? 0

Het-up over politics in Aaron Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Newsroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY SHONA SANZGIRI

F

FOR FANS of Aaron Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s punchy, ham-fisted 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 proved a dull axe to grind, bookending a potentially clever parody with indulgent dialogue and wistful histrionics for an America that never was. Jeff Daniels is 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 flip 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 fling Mackenzie MacHale (Emily Mortimer). Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a young

B6/B¸AB63E/G7BE/AJeff Daniels gets that old-time newscaster religion. 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 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 pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plot unravels with fury. While MacHale plays to McAvoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroic, pained ego with references to Don Quixote, 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 an opportunity, and where crickets once chirped, the studio now bustles. They tie things up with a bow: thanks to not one but two family sources, Harper secures the story, positioning McAvoy as less like Jay Leno, more like Walter Cronkite. 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 The Social Network. 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;? 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.

5=4=C@B6/<2>/@BG Saying the old Fourth of July celebration at Seabright Beach resembled World War III would be an understatement. It was more like several world wars all happening at the same time on a small sandy strip of coastline. From a distant vantage point on the Santa Cruz Wharf, it was like a huge, highly choreographed showâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a façade that disappeared the closer you got to the Seabright battlefield. In recent years, Santa Cruz police have started checking peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bags as they entered the beach to make sure they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carrying any alcohol, explosives and other ingredients for a good time. To their credit, officers are seeing to it that people leave the beach with all their limbs intact and fingers still on their hands. The beachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seagulls, sea lions and fish probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind the enforcement change either.

FANTASMA VOYAGE Grupo Fantasma takes a break from backing Prince to pack the dance ďŹ&#x201A;oor at Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley.

WEDNESDAY | 7/4

FRIDAY | 7/6

FRIDAY | 7/6

MATES OF STATE

GRUPO FANTASMA

THE JACKA

Founded in 1997, husband-and-wife band Mates of State is one of the longer-running acts in the indie-rock world. Known for minimal, keyboarddriven instrumentation, interwoven melodies and upbeat song-stylings, Jason Hammel and Kori Gardner have a knack for creating dense and textured songs using just a handful of instruments. The latest album, Mountaintops, demonstrates the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s range and evolution, balancing rollicking, energetic tunes with introspective, minor-key numbers that offer a glimpse into Mates of Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s darker side. Catalyst; $15 adv/$18 door; 9pm. (Cat Johnson)

Ten-piece funk extravaganza Grupo Fantasma are masters of Latin groove. This band, which regularly backs Prince and often performs at his afterparty jam sessions, recently earned a Grammy for its album El Existential. Famous for exuberant live shows, Grupo Fantasmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fresh, energetic beats seamlessly blend Anglo, Afro and Latin sounds for a fusion that defies classification and demands movement. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $12 adv/$15 door; 9pm. (Lily Stoicheff)

A name like the Jacka might bring to mind a blending appliance youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see hawked on a late-night infomercial, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing tacky or cheap about this NorCal rapper. A graduate of Mac Dre and Too $hortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow-roll pimp school, the former Mob Figaz member from Pittsburg (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s East Bay, not PA) has built an underground empire over the past decade, hustling solo records like The Jack Artist and Tear Gas with the drive and ambition of a hungry upstart. Sharing the bill is fellow Bay Area rapper Husalah. Catalyst; $23 adv/$28 door; 9pm. (Paul M. Davis)


23

MOUNTAIN PALOOZA Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosts a night of highenergy metal-tinged punk featuring some of the most explosive rockers in the area. Groove-laced rockers Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holding? headline and are joined by alternative four-piece metal group the Devil Himself, action-packed blues-rock combo SSPX, gritty metal and funk fury Planet Plow and groovers Oatmeal Cookie. A raffle, tattoo contest and inevitable sweat-drenched mosh pit complete the evening. Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s; $10; 8pm. (LS)

SATURDAY | 7/7

TOMMY CASTRO Tommy Castro began his career just over the hill in San Jose and the Bay Area, where he fine-tuned his bluesy R&B sound before joining the Warner Bros.-backed band the Dynatones. Since then, Castro has gone his own way, fusing electric, Chicago and West Coast blues with rock & roll and soul music to create an engaging live show. Described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most dangerous man in the bluesâ&#x20AC;? after sweeping the

2010 Blues Music Awards, Castro has mastered the ability to turn the oldtime genre into modern, funky gold. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $20 adv/$25 door; 9pm. (LS)

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;M LISTENING PenĂŠlope Cruz as Anna lends an ear to Flavio Parentiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michelangelo in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To Rome With Love,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; opening Friday. Sam (Jared Gilman) head off to the wilderness of the fictional New England island of New Penzance. They are sought by a sad constable (Bruce Willis) and an intrepid â&#x20AC;&#x153;Khaki Scoutsâ&#x20AC;? leader (Edward Norton). Gilman and Hayward demonstrate flawless precociousness, but the conceit is uneven. Sometimes the film is like Our Gang, as in a Boy Scout camp of kids acting like adults. Sometimes, it is as ooky as Bugsy Malone. Director Wes Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toy showboat is keeled with adult regret, particularly the drinkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sorrows embodied by Bill Murray as Suzyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. The coolness and preciousness keep a glass barrier up as thick as a store window. (RvB)

PEOPLE LIKE US (PG-13; 114 min) The morally obtuse Sam Harper receives $150,000 from his late father, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for him: heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructed to deliver it to a mysterious address in Los Angeles to a downand-out half-sister heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never met in desperate

need of family. Michelle Pfeiffer and Elizabeth Banks co-star. (LS)

PROMETHEUS (R; 124 min) In the distant future, two powers compete for the solar systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural resources. After discovering what may be a clue to humanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s origins, a team of explorers heads to a dark corner of the universe hoping to find a new home for human civilization. Instead, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the human race. (LS) ROCK OF AGES (PG-13; 123 min) Repetitive, would-be fist-pumper celebrating the hair-band era. It concerns 1987 rock stars and fans at Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bourbon Clubâ&#x20AC;? (i.e., the by-then-irrelevant Whiskey-a-Go-Go). Hard to feel much tenderness for the too-cute-to-live Diego Boneta (as the climbing bar-back) and Julianne Hough (as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the small town girl livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in her lonely worldâ&#x20AC;?). Some relief by Tom Cruise hamming it (and baring his hams) as the stoned â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stacey

Jaxxâ&#x20AC;? (i.e. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nicki Sixxâ&#x20AC;?); Alec Baldwin as the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner; and Paul Giamatti as a sleazy promoter. Despite the legion of painfully contorted pole dancers, whose routines are chopped for the PG13 rating, Malin Akerman boasts the most female chemicals in the picture, playing a star-struck Rolling Stone reporter. Based on a Broadway musical, it features a refried set of moldy oldies already shilled beyond recognition by Extended Stay Hotel commercials and the Bill Clinton presidential campaign. (RvB)

SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED (R; 94 min.) Three cynical Seattle magazine employees investigate a classified ad placed by a paranoid supermarket clerk looking for a companion in time travel. From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine, this heartfelt tale goes places viewers might not expect. (JP) SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD

(R; 109 min) An asteroid is on a fatal collision course to destroy Earth in three weeks. After his wife flees in panic, Dodge (Steve Carell) embarks on a road trip in search of his high school sweetheart. His neighbor (Keira Knightley) tags along in search of her family. (LS)

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (PG-13; 127 min) In this dark twist on a fairy tale, the evil queen (Charlize Theron) learns she must eat the heart of her stepdaughter, the beautiful Snow White (Kristen Stewart), if she is to conquer the kingdom and remain forever the Fairest of Them All. But the Huntsman chosen to kill the princess tips the scales by choosing to mentor her in the art of war. (LS) TED (R; 106 min) In the directorial debut of Seth MacFarlane, a young boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish for his teddy bear to come to life is granted. Ted remains his friend into his adult years, when Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to embrace adulthood is encumbered

by Tedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slovenly ways. With Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. (LS)

THATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MY BOY (R; 114 min) While still in his early teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), and raised him until he turned 18. After years of estrangement, Donny is thousands of dollars in debt and turns to his nowwealthy son on the eve of his wedding, hoping to make amends and avoid jail time. (LS) YOUR SISTERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SISTER (R; 90 min.) Iris (Emily Blunt) sends her friend Jack (Marc Duplass) to her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabin to recover from a crisis. When he finds Irisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) already there, funny things happen. Directed by Lynn Shelton (Humpday). (TH)

GLUTEN-FREE GOODNESS The aromas of fresh-baked cookies filling

this shop are almost too good to be possible. Always ahead of the curve with home-baked attitude in gourmet packaging, Pacific Cookie Company won our hearts and taste buds 30 years ago, thanks to founders Larry and Shelly Pearson, and has stayed fresh ever since. Especially fresh thanks to the latest brainstorm by company VP Cara Pearson. Having ousted transfats almost a decade ago, Pearson dreamed of offering gluten-free cookies that would magically meet the high standards of her cookie dynasty. Glutenfree products are popping up everywhere. Yet if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried some of the packaged products, then you know that most versions of â&#x20AC;&#x153;gluten-freeâ&#x20AC;? are also â&#x20AC;&#x153;flavor-free.â&#x20AC;? And gloppy, pasty and tough. Well, that was then. But now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the luscious partnership between the local gluten-free artisans of Red House Bakery and Pacific Cookie Company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been wanting to do this for a long time,â&#x20AC;? says Pearson. But the cookie companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing kitchen facility was too wheat-flour-based to offer gluten-free comfort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to find a dedicated gluten-free bakery that met our high standards of quality.â&#x20AC;? Pearsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, company CEO Larry Pearson, had noticed some gluten-free pastries over at New Leaf Marketâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is where I first sampled Red House Bakeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celestial orange pound cake. One thing led to another, and pretty soon Red House founder Anna Hayes started experimenting with recipes for a light, delicious cookie that was acceptable to Pacific Cookie Company, and also gluten-free. Ta da! From what I sampled last week, Hayesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; outstandingly decadent results will charm every cookie lover with taste buds. The Snickerdoodle is loaded with the exact eggy, vanilla and cinnamon flavor signature required of a true Snickerdoodle. But the new gluten-free Chocolate Chip with Sea Salt was the one that stole my heart. Generously laced with Guittard chocolate chips, these cookies offered the right amount of resistance to the teethâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that teasing that all great cookies do before they surrender into a voluptuous satiny finish. A hint of saltiness helped balance the rest of the ingredients. And even if you absolutely adore gluten, these two new stars in the Pacific Cookie Company galaxy will win you over. These new products mark a smart partnership between two local purveyors who both pay ultrapicky attention to detail, to taste, texture and ingredients like organic brown rice flour and organic coconut palm sugar. Betcha canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat just one. 0 AS\RbW^aOP]cbT]]ReW\SO\RRW\W\URWaQ]dS`WSab]1V`WabW\OEObS`a ObfbW\O.Q`chW]Q][@SORVS`PZ]UObVbb^(QV`WabW\OeObS`aQ][
