SLEEPY KNOWS THE WAY ON July 1 I substituted for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sleepyâ&#x20AC;? John Sandidge as host of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please Stand By,â&#x20AC;? his live music show on KPIG-FM (107.5). As he traveled in his RV that week, I fundamentally got to live John Sandidgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life for two hours in the control room called The Pigsty. I dropped into a live radio show that creates magic. Starting at 10am, each half-hour segment starts with the musical acts shuff ling in during the commercial break; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lost in their heads, nervous about performing in front of a huge radio audience. They retune, touch the microphones and retune. Then they look up to see a handful of grinning KPIG broadcasters assuring them that they are all going to have the time of their lives. As Geoff Childers mixes their microphone levels he dryly sails one-liners through the

room with show director Arden Eaton topping each joke. People at KPIG just never really do stop laughing. You can see the bodies of the musicians relax, their eyes light up, they reveal personal secrets and then sing with eyes closed from deep inside. With his partners Arden and Geoff, John Sandidge has created a live radio gem built on his love of old-time radio. And with it he gives us a model for future live radio. As media conglomerates steal every last frequency, John Sandidge has somehow reclaimed two hours of airwaves every week to be used for what they are meant to be used for, for the people to connect and inspire each other. I think John Sandidge figured it out a long time ago: Real music is authentic, real revolution is local. Richard Stockton Santa Cruz

LAZY TOM BEING a wretched drawer, I normally hesitate criticizing any cartoonist, but I must say bravo to the letter from Rachell Summers (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since You Asked,â&#x20AC;? Posts, July 11). In it she complained of the overly wordy and â&#x20AC;&#x153;talking headsâ&#x20AC;? style of â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Modern Worldâ&#x20AC;? by Tom Tomorrow. The installment below her letter made her point, consisting of a character called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Invisible Hand,â&#x20AC;? which seemed to be the same drawing repeated in six panels, with the only variation being in size, and the pupils moved slightly to the side in the first panel. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just plain lazy, but even more tedious is the stripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-note samba of consistently leftist attacks on the evils of capitalism, conservatism and all things non-progressive. This might be a sensitive subject for the paper, but I have to admit how much I miss the cartoons of DeCinzo. He was very unpredictable, often outrageous and a master at puncturing buffoonery on both the left and right. Hopefully he will someday return so readers can once more enjoy his bipartisan pen and ink IEDs.

Moveable Feast Where are the Santa Cruz food trucks?

W

When Fran Graysonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend was looking to sell a shiny chrome truck, Grayson thought it might be time to make the purchase herself and open up a restaurant on wheels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she says. Grayson is walking through the downtown Santa Cruz farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market pulling a cooler of fresh produce sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use in recipes at her Truck Stop, parked on Mission Street next to the Filling Station. She also goes to the Live Oak farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market on Sunday mornings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tremendous amount of work, but it seems like people really like it.â&#x20AC;? Grayson says the food truck scene, with its typically affordable menu items, is a perfect fit for Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which begs the question: why hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it taken off here? Graysonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is one of just a small handful of food trucks in town, most of whichâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like Cruz n Gourmet, Raymondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catering and Babalooâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;go to UCSC

but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make stops in town proper. One answer is population density. The cities where the culinary craze is sweeping hipsters off their vegan-shod feetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;places like Portland and San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tend to be much bigger and denser than Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz Community Farmers Market director Nesh Dillon, who grew up in Portland, thinks food trucks are an excellent way to share and distribute local produce, and he wants to see more of them. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one who thinks the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low urban density has made the Santa Cruz area slow to adapt to the food cart craze, adding the current zoning laws havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helped either. But what about arrangements other than the standard scenario of the food truck rolling through town, Tweeting its next location to hordes of fans? One thinks of the miraculous sights in Austin, for example, where multiple food trucks populate empty lots around town and put out tables and

BY JACOB PIERCE

chairs, providing a real world version of the food court at the mall. Dillon, who helped bring food trucks to the farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s markets (Roli Roti to the downtown market and Low â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Slow to Felton), has his own notions about expanding food trucks to new locations in Santa Cruz. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mum on details. But, he adds, it might not happen anyway without some policy changes from City Hall. The evidence suggests that Santa Cruz hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t caught up with the hipster capitals of the country, food truck regulation-wise. Eric Marlatt of the planning department says because the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any food truck laws, a truck stationed on private propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like Graysonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;falls under the same regulations that apply to fast food. Applicants must apply for a use permit (a process Grayson is currently undergoing), which usually takes about two or three months and includes a public hearing. Food trucks that roam

from one parking spot to another, on the other hand, go through a separate permitting process with the Santa Cruz Police Department.

Farmers market director Nesh Dillon has his own notions about expanding food trucks to new locations. But, he adds, it might not happen without some policy changes from City Hall. Marlatt says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why food cart mania hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taken off in Santa Cruz, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think planning laws are to blame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get many inquiries,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten two or three.â&#x20AC;? On the other hand, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to say it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take off with some creative thinking and a welcoming regulatory atmosphere? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the ordinances are tweaked so that people can start these businesses up, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make it easier,â&#x20AC;? Dillon says. 0

ROAD TO RUIN Santa Cruz County has some real tooth-rattlers.

Price of Pavement 7heWZjWnbeeci

S

SANTA CRUZ County voters might have to decide this November if local roads are worth $10. The per-vehicle registration fee, which will face a vote at the Regional Transportation Commission next month before going on the ballot, would produce an estimated $2.2 million annually and need a two-thirds majority to pass. A preliminary poll showed 69 percent of respondents in favor of itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;right there in the margin of error. Just how bad are the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads? A report from Richmond-based Nichols Consulting Engineers last year rated Santa Cruz Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads the third worst in the state, ahead only of Monterey and Sonoma counties. Especially bad were Santa Cruz Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural roads, which collectively scored just 23 out of a possible 100, putting them solidly in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;failedâ&#x20AC;? category for pavement condition. (The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads scored a 49 overallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a point shy of â&#x20AC;&#x153;at risk,â&#x20AC;? but alas, in the end just â&#x20AC;&#x153;failed.â&#x20AC;?) Some roads scored lower than others. Thompson Avenue, a residential road in Live Oak, scored a 14 out of 100. San Andreas Road in Aptos scored a 27. Soquel Drive, an important mid-county artery running parallel to the Highway 1, scored 56. Steve Wiesner, assistant director of the county public works department, says the measure would provide enough dollars to resurface the roads

BY JACOB PIERCE

and â&#x20AC;&#x153;maintainâ&#x20AC;? their current state, which is the measureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not a total transformation of local roads that would put us on the top of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to get us closer to where we need to be,â&#x20AC;? Wiesner says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every little bit counts.â&#x20AC;? The measure would come at a time when Californians are keeping a closer eye on their bank accounts and when several ballot measures aim to offer solutions to financial woes at the government level. Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballot will also include three statewide tax measures, including a plan from Gov. Jerry Brown to hike sales tax and income taxes for those making more than $250,000 a year. Napa County announced a ballot measure for a half-cent sales tax last week to help fund local roads. Monterey and Sonoma, the only two counties worse than Santa Cruz, according to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, have yet to announce similar tax proposals, but watchful eyes may be on Santa Cruz from the other side of the bay. Debbie Hale, executive director for the Transportation Agency of Monterey County, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think voters in her county would approve a tax or fee increase this year. But she is curious to see how it goes here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see what happens in Santa Cruz, and if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to move forward maybe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look at it next time,â&#x20AC;? Hale says. 0

Vitamin Spree The ABCs of multivitamins

T

THE LAST Wellness column, which was about anemia, ended with the advice to â&#x20AC;&#x153;try a multivitamin and eat more kale.â&#x20AC;? A week spent wandering the aisles of the local health stores and a phone interview with Jerry Garciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former physician convinced me that this easily-dispensed advice is more crucial than everâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but useless if not followed with care. The Harvard School of Public Policy calls multivitamins a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nutrition insurance policy,â&#x20AC;? and according to Dr. Randy Baker of the Soquel-based Pacific Center for Integral Health, this couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more trueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not just for â&#x20AC;&#x153;unhealthyâ&#x20AC;? people, but for everybody. That being said, even the highest quality multivitamin cannot take the place of kale. Ever.

BY MARIA GRUSAUSKAS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely no substitute for a healthy diet,â&#x20AC;? says Baker (who, since youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably wondering, tended the Grateful Dead frontman from 1990 to 1995). The problem is, our kale may not be quite as healthy as we think it is: soil is becoming more and more depleted of nutrients like chromium, selenium and magnesium, and mineral deficiencies are even more common than vitamin deficiencies, says Baker. He adds that the consequences of mineral deficiencies are more grave than simply feeling tired and washed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause virtually any symptom in the world and can increase the risk of heart disease, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like


11  W E L L N E S S      j u l y 1 8 -2 4 , 2 0 1 2      S A N T A C R U Z . C O M

Alzheimers,â&#x20AC;? says Baker, who names magnesium deficiency as the leading mineral deficiency in the United States. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone suffering from magnesium deficiency could go to a doctor and be given an asthma inhaler, drugs for migraines, blood pressure meds, laxatives, muscle relaxants, tranquilizers and sleeping pills when all they really needed was magnesium.â&#x20AC;? In other words, a multivitamin. And when it comes to multivitamins, there are two kinds: the less expensive â&#x20AC;&#x153;isolates,â&#x20AC;? which have been synthetically produced from chemicals in the lab; and the more expensive food-based vitamins, often grown on a yeastbased culture, like Vitamin Code Raw One, which retails for $36.95 for 75 tablets at New Leaf. The number one criticism of multivitamins is that all they do is make expensive, f luorescent urine (vitamins B1 and B2 are the culprits), but many nutritionists think that food-based vitamins are much more available to the body

because they contain naturallyoccurring chemical co-factors that help absorption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of like the isolates have to find a lot of other things in your bloodstream to make them metabolically active, and that can be taxing to your body,â&#x20AC;? says Mary Iliff, an expert in the vitamin aisle of New Leaf Community Markets on the Westside. For multivitamins, Baker recommends food-based Rainbow Light or Source Naturals, both of which are based in Santa Cruz County. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less of a fan of isolates like Centrum or One-a-Day because they contain lower amounts of vitamins in the least expensive forms. Synthetically produced Vitamin E, for example, has been shown to have potential health hazards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You often have to read the fine print. Even if a vitamin says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;all naturalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it may contain synthetic vitamin E,â&#x20AC;? says Baker. (Natural vitamin E appears as â&#x20AC;&#x153;d-alpha tocopheryl,â&#x20AC;? while synthetic vitamin E appears as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dl-alpha tocopheryl.â&#x20AC;?) Baker also highly recommends green superfood powders like Green Vibrance, which retail for $1.45 per single serving packet at the Herb Room and Staff of Life, and climbs to around $65 for a 60-day supply. Complete with spirulina, wheat grass and probiotics, these green powders are highy concentrated, made from juiced and freeze-dried plants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I was going to choose one over the other I might actually recommend the superfood powder over multivitamins,â&#x20AC;? says Baker. And for those who were wondering, Baker did ask Jerry Garcia to take multivitamins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he did take them some of the time,â&#x20AC;? laughs Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe when he followed my advice he did really very well, and unfortunately he did not always follow my advice.â&#x20AC;? 0

Feeling the Love Love Apple Farms is redefining the farm-to-table movement BY STETT HOLBROOK PHOTOGRAPHS BY DAN PULCRANO

Cynthia Sandberg was just a tomato farmer. Well, not just a tomato farmer. Sandberg, a former attorney, had taken gardening classes at Cabrillo College in the early 1990s, and when she tried her hand at tomato growing she discovered she had a green thumbâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and an excess of nearly 300 tomato seedlings one spring. As the story goes, she put the little plants up for sale in her driveway with a sign and an honor system money jar. The seedlings sold quickly and Sandberg had a new business: Love Apple Farms. As her skills as a tomato grower increased, so did her notoriety. Love Apple Farms became a celebrated purveyor of heirloom tomato varietals, a nice little side business. Then she met David Kinch, chef and owner of Manresa in Los Gatos, and things got interesting. Kinch had already made a name for himself with his one-of-a-kind, modernist brand of cuisine, but he was looking for a way to further

distinguish Manresa. Most Bay Area chefs get their vegetables from the same vendors and markets and so end up cooking with the same stuff as each other. Kinch didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to cook with the same stuff. After buying her tomatoes, he approached Sandberg about a grander partnership: would she grow produce exclusively for Manresa, and would she do it biodynamically? Yes and yes. The arrangement with Manresa would add a predictable revenue stream for Sandberg and the attention that comes with being associated with a two-Michelin star restaurant. And Sandberg had already been interested in biodynamic agriculture, a method developed by philosopher Rudolf Steiner in the 1920s that goes beyond organic and utilizes a series of witchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brew â&#x20AC;&#x153;preparationsâ&#x20AC;? to enhance soil and plant vitality. The potager, or kitchen garden,

was a relatively new concept on the American restaurant scene when Kinch and Sandberg began their partnership in 2006, but it has since grown in popularity. While a number of chefs have embraced the farm-to-table movement, few have integrated their cooking with a single farm as deeply as Kinch has. And few farmers are as responsive to the needs of a chef as Sandberg and her crew. Sandberg, a tall woman with long, light brown hair and a sufferno-fool gaze, harvests crops like tomatoes, eggplant and carrots for Kinch, but also flowers, seedpods and roots, parts of plants not commercially available. She looks for rare and esoteric vegetables Kinch might like such as orach, a spinachlike plant; Cape gooseberry and chrysanthemum greens, a rare carrottasting leaf from East Asia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always finding weirdo stuff,â&#x20AC;? she said as she watered plants in the


15 C O V E R S T O R Y    j u l y 1 8 -2 4 , 2 0 1 2      S A N T A C R U Z . C O M

greenhouse on a blistering hot day last week. Sandberg has given herself fully to her partnership with Kinch, going so far as to cover her swimming pool with vegetable beds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a level of commitment I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting,â&#x20AC;? says Kinch. After three years in Ben Lomond, Love Apple Farms moved across Highway 17 two and a half years ago to a sunnier, 22-acre property that was formerly the Smothers Brothers winery. This spring Sandberg and her business partner Daniel Maxfield leased an adjacent 58-acre parcel where they raise livestock and have erected a trailer parklike encampment for apprentices. Meanwhile, Manresa recently completed a remodel of its own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re growing together,â&#x20AC;? says Kinch. Love Apple Farms is also constructing a charcuterie locker where Kinch will make cured meats

from the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare breed Gloucester Old Spot pigs, all of whom forage about the farm for acorns and grubs and eat spent grain from Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Uncommon Brewers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a little community in the woods all geared toward the production of high-quality food. Because Manresa is an expensive restaurant where the tasting menu goes for $175, Sandberg sometimes gets criticism that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing food for the 1 percent, that Love Apple Farms is elitist. She scoffs. While she says she still struggles financially, the farm is 100 percent self-supportingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; no grants, no public money. And while Manresa does serve some pricey food, she says the restaurant is a small business that supports its staff but also purveyors, linen supply companies and other service providers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The roots go deep and the tendrils ¨ $

4/@;4@3A1=Celebrity chef dinners, like this one with 2008 Esquire Chef of the Year Dominique Crenn, are a regular part of summer at the farm. far and wide,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a definite good.â&#x20AC;? But Sandbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Love Apple Farm has grown into something more than the source for Manresaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vegetables. It is a culinary and gardening education center that attracts more than 1,000 students each year for classes in cheesemaking, pickling and gopher control. Her spring tomato seedling sale has become the largest of its kind in America. Pim Techamuanvivit, celebrity food blogger Chez Pim and Kinchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime partner, teaches an ongoing series of classes. The farm also hosts a rotating crew of college student apprentices who learn every aspect of farming, cooking and marketing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re training the next generation of farmers,â&#x20AC;? Sandberg says proudly. Love Apple Farmsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stunning setting on 80 acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains off Vine Hill Road also attract a growing

number of big name chefs like San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dominique Crenn and Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ludo Lefebvre. They come to support what Love Apple Farms is doing and catch a little of Kinch and Sandbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magic dust. There is nothing quite like it in America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really gracious to us because they appreciate our mission,â&#x20AC;? she says. Sandberg and Maxfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream is to one day create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;farm universityâ&#x20AC;? on the farm, a twoyear program where students can immerse themselves in food production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even imagine Love Apple Farms 20 years ago,â&#x20AC;? says Sandberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has just grown organically.â&#x20AC;? Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say whether Sandberg is the farmer behind the chef or whether Kinch is the chef behind the farmer. Given their symbiotic relationship, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it should be. 0

The Waters Advocate Our resident food and wine expert finally gives it up: her top 10 Santa Cruz Mountains wines BY CHRISTINA WATERS

1

BIRICHINO 2011 VIN GRIS Everything I love about pink wines in an elegantly-labeled bottle, made by local oeno-shamans Alex Krause and John Locke. A sprightly rosÊ, this lovely creation of grenache, cinsault, mourvèdre and a splash of vermentino was fermented in stainless steel for a crisp, dry finish. Rhônesque to the bones, it offers hints of nectarine and strawberry within its attenuated, Giacomettiesque length. At 13 percent alcohol it refreshes the palate and invites that second glass. And at around $13 a bottle, it suggests frequent trysts with summer barbecues.

2

WINDY OAKS TERRA NARRO 2009 SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS PINOT NOIR Utterly elegant, yet loaded with complex flavors and aromas, this disarming wine drinks like its more expensive cousins from the Corralitos winery. At 13.9 percent, it is just about a perfect pinot, delivering dark cherries, sassafras, iron, bay and even the suspicion of warm linen. Yet throughout there

Huge Patio Sports on HD TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

is a sturdy tannin backbone and endless mineral finish. A perfectly nuanced showcase for Jim Schultzeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distinctive touch. We adore this with wild salmon. $27.

3

SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAIN VINEYARD GRENACHE 2010 Santa Cruz Mountain winemaker Jeff Emery just always nails grenache, and this beauty is now my go-to exemplar of the endlessly likable grape. At 14 percent it is a mediumweight, versatile creation loaded with spice and a core of ripe raspberries. It offers geraniums in its tangy center and a long, long finish whispering of salt and cinnamon. Not many $16 bottles can do as much.

GHOSTWRITER WOODRUFF FAMILY VINEYARD PINOT NOIR 2010 Wunderkind winemaker Kenny Likitprakong works sorcery with the grapes from his sources in the Santa Cruz Mountains near Aptos. And this particular example is ¨ &

17 F O O D & W I N E a liquid journey through remarkable flavor and aroma landscapes, running a medium-light 13.2 percent alcohol and worth every bit of its $45 price tag. Likitprakong teases focused coils of oregano and cinnamon into moments somehow both delicate and striking. This Ghostwriter creation is admittedly more an experience than a food partner, but it definitely romances everything weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve matched it with.

5/6

TWO OF RANDALL GRAHMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S WINES compete for my favorite white wine this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the ethereal and citrus-kissed Bonny Doon Vineyard AlbariĂąo 2011 and the appealingly complex Bonny Doon Vineyard Le Cigare Blanc 2010. The newly released AlbariĂąo is hugely versatile in terms of being able to sit down with entrees, salty snacks and pungent cheeses. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loaded with briny freshness, probably thanks to its 13.2 percent alcohol. Inside it holds the secrets of nectarine and kumquat and many other crisp, elemental mysteries. Yet it remains satiny, rounded and effortless to drink. $18. The Cigare Blanc 2010 is a sumptuous creation, as much a poem to the RhĂ´ne as its creator can conjure. Quince, pears, un peu de lilac and a barely perceptible topnote of wild fennel are here captured. Mineral-driven, this wine adores roast chicken and seafoods of every stripe. The remarkable alchemistry between the 55 percent roussanne and the 45 percent grenache blanc gives it the signature gravitas of its Châteauneufdu-Pape cousins. It is a big league white for a mere $26, and we have loved every iteration of it since the dawn of Doon.

7

BEAUREGARD LOST WEEKEND 2010 SEMILLON/ SAUVIGNON BLANC BLEND Winemaker Ryan Beauregard has made gonzo blending make palate sense with this marriage of oenological cousins that cries out for consumption. Named for the original Bonny Doon roadhouse that has become Beauregard Vineyardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tasting room, the Lost Weekend is filled with steely apricots, flinty melon, even apples and strawberries.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finished in stainless steel for a clean sail through lovely flavor notes. Those who, like me, are not fans of the big oaky finale, will find this the white wine of summer. $18.

8

VINE HILL CHARDONNAYS Even though I know that Vine Hill is famed for its pinot noirs, nonetheless the chardonnays made by winemaker Sal Godinez always win me over. And for my chardonnay aficionado fans, I always try to keep a few bottles on hand like the 2008 Vine Hill Chardonnay, big and luscious at 14.4 percent alcohol and frontloaded with grapefruit and hints of grassy hilltops, yet shaped into a rounded mouthful at the end. This is a superbly restrained California-style chard: supple, voluptuous and highly likeable. Especially for $24.

9

RIDGE THREE VALLEYS ZINFANDEL 2009 The alwaysreliable Ridge Vineyards, at the northern boundary of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation, creates vintage after vintage of inventive zinfandel blends bearing the Three Valleys label. The darling of restaurateurs, this is a go-to wine for any dinner involving big carnivore and pasta flavors. We like the 2009 version, in which zinfandel is joined with mataro, carignane and petite sirah and crafted into an orgy of black fruit, cassis and a backhand of oak. For $24, this is a wine I use to impress out-of-town guests.

10

MOUNT EDEN VINEYARDS ESTATE PINOT NOIR For superspecial occasions, I have been known to treat myself and my favorite other with an Estate Pinot Noir from Mount Eden Vineyards, above Saratoga. The specialty of this highly renowned house is silky, elegant, quintessential pinots, and the 2009 is archetypal. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good enough for Robert Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 93 points, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good enough for me. A refined 13.5 percent alcohol drives an impressive core of blueberries, spices and a hint of earth, anise and leaves. So balanced you want to just sit there and kneel before it, this is one of the top wines of its generation. Go ahead and shell out the $52â&#x20AC;&#x201D;live a little! 0

Culinary Changes News of the dining scene Passing Clouds Once upon a time there was Sea Cloud, a dreamy, waterfront restaurant and saloon that helped us all ride the wave of the economic Happy Hour several decades ago. And then there was Clouds, Lou and Kristi Cavigliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gift to downtown diners and cocktail fans. Wow, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe that Clouds has been with us for almost two decades, but it has, and the proprietors have decided on a major sea change. A new mural will replace Linde Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abstract paintings. And a California Cajun menu will replace the world fusion comfort food list. Can you say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sazerac?â&#x20AC;? Closing this week, Clouds will morph into Louieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cajun Kitchen and Bourbon Bar. Look for changes toward the affordable, more casual end of the spectrum. But Lou admits that the makeover is inspired by â&#x20AC;&#x153;the wild side of the Big Easy.â&#x20AC;? Fried chicken, barbecue ribs and brisket, po boys, gumbo and umpteen oyster specialties. Diehards are hoping that the outrageous chicken waffle combo stays on the menu. The bar will showcase artisanal American bourbons and rye whiskeys along with the old Clouds martini specials. Louie told me that he is aiming to be open with the new Louieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cajun Kitchen for the first Friday in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to show off the new mural,â&#x20AC;? he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which will be a mind blower!â&#x20AC;?

Cedar Street Brewing Company 411 Brewmeister Dan Satterthwaite emails to tell me that fundraising continues to move forward for what will become the first local brewery in Santa Cruz focusing on continental lager-style beers. Satterthwaite looks forward to plying us with Viennese lager, beechwood smoked Schwarzbier and Bavarian Hefeweizen, as well as a few American versions of classic IPA, Porter and Stout ales. The Cedar Street biergarten-in-progress plans to offer a menu of California brewery foods created by Satterthwaiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner Jon DeHarpporte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stay tuned for future developments,â&#x20AC;? he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We anticipate being open in the summer of 2013.â&#x20AC;? 0

The Tommy Club BY LILY STOICHEFF

I

ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S 10AM and Thomas Hickenbottom, one of the founding fathers of Santa Cruz surfing, is showcasing lattices of berries and fruit trees laden with the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bounty in the Eden he has helped to create around his Westside home. Breathing deeply, he presses the stoma that has replaced the vocal chords he lost to cancer and whispers excitedly about the fundraiser being held in his honor on Saturday, July 21. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a great party, a real celebration of life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so humbled at the love and support the community and my friends have shown,â&#x20AC;? says Hickenbottom, each word purposefully articulated. The energy 64-year-old Hickenbottom seems to radiate has been valiantly won. He was diagnosed with head and neck cancer in 2007, and since then has undergone multiple surgeries, radiation and radio chemo at the VA hospital in Palo Alto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At one point, they were blasting my neck with radiation for hours at a time. It was one of the most frightening and painful experiences of my life,â&#x20AC;? says Hickenbottom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I was a medic during the war in Vietnam!â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately, the cancer metastasized to his lungs. The future was looking bleak when, in a stroke of serendipity, his wife, Susan Allison, got a recommendation. The host of a health-based radio show, Allison was interviewing one of her medical guests

when the person insisted they consider new, cutting-edge treatments being practiced by Dr. James Forsythe in Reno. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like the universe had intervened. We knew we had to give it a try,â&#x20AC;? says Allison. Hickenbottom underwent three weeks of treatments with Forsythe. The treatments were tailored to his specific needs based on DNA analysis and concentrated on strengthening his depleted immune system by targeting deficiencies in his blood. There was also low-dose chemo and homeopathic therapies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding, the difference the treatments made,â&#x20AC;? Hickenbottom insists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eradicated the cancer completely, they have at least vastly improved the length and quality of my life.â&#x20AC;? The one drawback is the cost. Hickenbottom and his family paid tens of thousands of dollars for the treatments up front, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the added maintenance of 30 pills a day, including oral chemo. He will also have to return to the clinic every three months for additional treatments. In order to offset the costs of his battle, Hickenbottom, a fourthgeneration Santa Cruz native, novelist and former pro surfer, decided to ask the community for help. The answer came back loud and clear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I got the call from Tom, it was a no-brainer,â&#x20AC;? explains Kim Stoner, a friend of Hickenbottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since they were young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of guy who youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d drop everything to help.â&#x20AC;? The former manager of the Cocoanut Grove, Stoner is a member of the 11person committee of friends helping to plan the fundraiser. Another member and longtime friend of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hickoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? Paula Mahoney, puts it this way: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tommyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been

Santa Cruz responds to a surf icon in need

BEACH BOY FOREVER Former pro surfer and novelist Thomas Hickenbottom and his wife, Susan Allison, near their Westside home there for his friends and his community. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a giver his whole life. Now everyone finally has a chance to give back.â&#x20AC;? Legendary surf- and skateboard artist Jim Phillips designed the poster for the event in his iconic style. It includes a classic Bob Richardson photo of Hickenbottom in his pro surfing heyday and incorporates a stack of surf club and surfboard logos that Hickenbottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been involved with over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to add a cartoon of a stoked Tommy running to the beach with his famous â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Candy Stripeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; surfboard, hoping to convey the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that Tommy always radiates,â&#x20AC;? says Phillips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, Tommy has always been the gentleman of surfing in Santa Cruz ... whether sharing a wave or giving you the T-shirt off his back, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always admired his evenness and good nature.â&#x20AC;? Hulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Island Grill, CafĂŠ Brazil, Pono Hawaiian Grill and Gildaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant are providing sumptuous fare, and guests will enjoy live music from

local bands Ribsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nickel, Jerry Best & Eddie James and Barbara Gerry & Ken Arconti. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be live and silent auctions. If all goes well organizers hope to raise at least $40,000. Hickenbottom canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain his excitement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the event of the summer!â&#x20AC;? He lowers his head with sincerity when he describes how humbled he is by the support he has received. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During this fight, there are times when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at my lowest,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also gone through such an emotional awakening. Even though I may not be healthy physically, spiritually and mentally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt better.â&#x20AC;?

GREAT WHITE

We hear about the blues and desert blues and rhythm & blues, but Greek blues? Not so much. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very real thing. Technically called rebetika, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a style of music that originated in the Greek underworld at the turn of the last century. String-driven, with themes that center on heartbreak, death, jail, love, drugs and exile, it does sound, topically anyway, a lot like the blues. Except in Greek. Pasatempo, a Seattlebased rebetika band, brings the soulful, lively music, played with traditional instruments (think bouzouki, baglama, accordion and acoustic bass), as well as other Balkan folk styles, to town on Thursday for a foot-stomping good time. Don Quixotes; $12 adv/$15 door; 7:30pm. (Cat Johnson)

L.A.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;based hair metal band Great White may have peaked in the late 1980s, but it continued to ride the hard rock wave longer than many of its contemporaries, due in large part to the strength of its stage show. And the rockers, despite a few stops and starts, are still shredding with hair flying, a brand-new album and newfound energy. While best known for its anthemic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Bitten, Twice Shy,â&#x20AC;? Great White did have some other hits (Remember â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock Me,â&#x20AC;? Save Your Loveâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Angel Songâ&#x20AC;?? No? Neither do I), keeping them on the safe side of the one-hit-wonder line. The latest Great White incarnation features Terry Ilous on frontman duties, replacing longtime vocalist Jack Russell, who parted ways with the band in 2011. Beach Boardwalk; Free; 6:30 & 8:30pm.

Zimbabwean artist Oliver Mtukudziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to confronting injustice in defiance of Robert Mugabeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repressive regime throughout his 35-year career has made him an international icon. His unique sound, nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tuku musicâ&#x20AC;? by his fans, combines traditional African instruments like mbira and marimba with soulful and energetic acoustic guitar. Mtukudziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrics, which notably rely on innuendo, reflect his philosophy that one must communicate figuratively if one is to be understood universally. Part entertainer and part educator, Mtukudzi is a powerful musician with a message. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $18 adv/$20 door; 9pm. (Lily Stoicheff)

Born and bred in Ben Lomond, Jamie and Kellen Coffis first debuted their boot-tapping folk rock on KPIGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please Stand Byâ&#x20AC;? radio show.

AUDREY AULD Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much of a stretch to think that there could be a connection between growing up in Tasmania with no TV or radio and having a natural sense for playing Americana music, and Audrey Auld is proof that there is one. An Australian-born singer songwriter with numerous Americana accolades, a string of well-received albums and the respect of such roots heavyweights as Fred Eaglesmith, Jimmy LaFave and Nina Gerber, Auld masterfully balances both dark and uplifting themes with a playful stage presence, a whipsmart sense of humor and an appreciation of down-home living, wherever it may be. Backstage Lounge; $20; 8pm. (CJ)

His dynamic and imaginative compositions and covers of everything from classical masterpieces to modern pop hits have earned him critical acclaim while fellow musicians clamor to collaborate with him. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his innovative two-hand tapping guitar-playing technique, which allows him to play both melody and chords simultaneously, that has solidified Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place as a true virtuoso.

MIDNITE Hailing from St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, brothers Ron and Vaughn Benjamin strive for a sense of honest simplicity and universal brotherhood in their music. Resting on a foundation of Rastafarian conviction and raw musical talent, their earthy rootsreggae is bound by Vaughnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chanting, edgy vocals, refined by Ronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exquisite production and enhanced by a beatheavy band. Midnite breaks and remakes cultural roots reggae into a unique and modern experience rooted in tradition with a vibe that pierces straight to the heart. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $30 adv; 9pm.

WHERE YOU LIVE It is said that you are what you eat. That may be true although walking carrot sticks, hummus masses or saladettes have not been observed of late. There are a lot of beefy people around though. If this is true then you are where you live, as well. One normally spends the greater part of 24 hours at home. Here we are nourished physically, mentally, in our retreat center. Home is where the heart is and the heart is the home. (And whatever you eat in it.) When preparing a house to sell, before listing it, the sellers are given lists. Paint this—remove that—change this—weed— clean—stage—curb appeal. When the work is done, sellers say that now they love their home and why didn't they do this ages ago? Why? Why not? They took the time to do it, they must have had the time before. More and more, we seem to be busier and busier which can become a convenient excuse. Have you noticed that when you really want something you arrange and find the time to make it happen. You will always find the time for your true heartʼs desire. Look around your home. Really look. What do you see? This is you. That couch. That kitchen, those plates. Everything is a reflection of your personality. Being content in your space is of upmost importance for your welfare. Be good to yourself and to your home. Take care of both, lighten up, buy some artwork, colorful paint, freshen the place. We all need to do this periodically. If you donʼt like your home, and it has not worked for you, throw off your chains, move to a different spot. Donʼt stay stuck, change can be interesting. If you happen to need a new place or want to adventure out into the investment arena, I have the perfect opportunity for you, I guarantee it.
