Unfair to Hammer

The Bishop Did Know Best

Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hammer: No Passâ&#x20AC;? (Currents, Oct. 31): Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad day in Santa Cruz when the Weekly publishes an attack ad posing as a legitimate article. You first endorsed Eric Hammer (Currents, Oct. 17), then slammed him, leaving him and your readers without time to respond before the election. Is that any way to treat your friends?

I wish to comment on the cover story â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bishop Knows Bestâ&#x20AC;? (Oct. 17). Judith Dushku and Peggie Hayes may think that Mitt Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewpoint of discouraging single moms is only the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wish of the Mormon Church,â&#x20AC;? but single motherhood is an idea made up from women who are actually going against what nature intended in allowing children to have a strong foundation in life. I come from a broken home where my parents divorced. I have never lost the feelings of heartache, bitterness, pain, loss of self-esteem and abandonment that have stayed with me all my life. Those single mothers who feel powerful

MARK FELDMAN Santa Cruz

Eric Hammer and his campaign were contacted repeatedly for the Oct. 31 article, and their responses quoted in the article itself.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Editor

and superior because they raised children on their own often cause their children to have quiet lives of suffering, anger, feelings of incompleteness and loss. There are reasons why people marry and then have children. It is to protect the emotional, physical and mental strength of their children. The family (mother and father included) gives the children this secure foundation to meet the challenges of life. These women, Judith Dushku and Peggie Hayes, are clearly women who have a disdain for men. Men in a marriage play an important and integral part in forming a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solid foundation so they can cope with the harsh realities of life. MICHELE P. Santa Cruz

Extras Wipe Out Congrats to the cast and crew portraying Jayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (and Frostyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) life in Chasing Mavericks. My non-surfer girlfriend really enjoyed the movie along with myself, of course. We were amazed at the footage of Mavericks going off and the quality of the performances by Jonny and Gerry and the rest of the cast. I had one issue with the final product, however. Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take this the wrong way, I am not criticizing the movie. As we all remember last year during filming, pleas went out for local extras to be in various scenes such as at the boardwalk and the famous paddle out event. We spent a lot of time and effort to film the paddle out scene, for example, yet you only really get to see a brief helicopter shot of it as the movies closes. As I was involved as a background artist in the film I am somewhat disappointed that a lot of those who took time off of work and school were excluded in the editing room from being in the final production. Of course thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it goes in the film industry, I suppose. But part of the fun of having a movie shot in a particular locale, besides the well known landmarks, is seeing just ordinary locals appear in the film even for a brief second. LJ OLSON Soquel

Currents SAY ANYTHING Over the course of the Santa Cruz City Council race, CeCe Pinheiro provided some surreal moments.

CeCe Puede!

CeCe Pinheiro provided some truly weird and wacky moments in an otherwise dull council race BY GEORGIA PERRY

E

very election needs its comic relief, and over the last few months, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to trust CeCe Pinheiro to deliver it. The sheer delight of watching her campaign in what was often a downright snoozer of a City Council race came from the thrill of never knowing, at any given forum, when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say something majestically ridiculous. We cannot predict the future, but whether she wins or loses â&#x20AC;Ś um, yesterday, let us now take a moment to honor her relentless weirdness in the race for Santa Cruz City Council. A fourth-generation Santa Cruzan who served on the Santa Cruz City School District Board and formerly

worked as the assistant director of Community Television, Pinheiro scored the endorsement of Hilary Bryant, Mark Stone, the GLBT Alliance and the Santa Cruz Police Officers Association, among others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grandson got me the endorsement of Nemo, Dora, the Lorax and Big Bird,â&#x20AC;? Pinheiro has said. She also claimed the endorsement of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, because the deceased patriots were female. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has fun, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really interesting person and has a great sense of humor,â&#x20AC;? said fellow council candidate Steve Pleich, who says he appreciated the lightheartedness she

brought to the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all answering questions. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all a little nervous, and CeCe has a way of alleviating that.â&#x20AC;? In case you missed any, we present to you now our five favorite CeCe Pinheiro moments from the campaign trail: 0OQ]\(The Ultimate Solution: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have any specific ideas for how to increase citizen participation in city government?â&#x20AC;? CeCe was asked at a September meet-and-greet forum at Kuumbwa Jazz Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bacon!â&#x20AC;? came her staggeringly bizarre response. She then rambled through something about â&#x20AC;&#x153;putting the unity back in community,â&#x20AC;? fessed up that

she sounded too much like a politician and asked the moderator to repeat the question. Before she could get out a legitimate answer, though, her time was up, so she settled for whispering a second haunting â&#x20AC;&#x153;baconnnnnnnâ&#x20AC;? into the microphone. ASOa]\BWQYSbaT]`/ZZ( Poor CeCe was booed at an October forum after expressing her support for the Santa Cruz Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already happening!â&#x20AC;? she sassed back, before steering the conversation to an earlier question about a lack of year-round homeless shelter housing in Santa Cruz, closing with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, if the stadium doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our shelter!â&#x20AC;? 1VSSaS1`OQYS`aO\R >agQVSRSZWQa( According to one source who attended a social hour at the Cruzio Building, CeCe told a group of techy entrepreneurs there that she dropped acid for the first time at 12 years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;.â&#x20AC;? CeCe began to say, before being interrupted by a fellow networker who finished her sentence: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out loud???â&#x20AC;? 6]bEObS`(At a forum hosted by the proponents for Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Measure P, all the candidates were asked what solutions they had for the water shortage. Ceceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reply: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does anybody want to take a shower with me?â&#x20AC;? BOZYb]1VcQY( One of the moderators in a September council forum lamented the immense expense of owning property in Santa Cruz and commuting over the hill for work each day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can you tell me, preferably with some rational and actionable message, why I should not move away from Santa Cruz?â&#x20AC;? he asked. Nothing if not rational and actionable, CeCe responded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly more to life than money, we live in the most beautiful placeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can you tell that to my mortgage lender?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes!â&#x20AC;? she replied enthusiastically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will tell that to your mortgage lender, absolutely. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to meet with anybody, anytime, on any topic.â&#x20AC;? 0

Briefs Phi vs. Psi

Pipe Dream? The thinking goes like this: surely, there must be some way to turn Santa Cruz into Silicon Beach, a free-surfing utopia where budding entrepreneurs ride waves of innovation like Nat Young at Steamers Lane. One idea is free wireless Internet, and it was a popular one this year on the Santa Cruz City Council campaign trail. In September, six out of the eight candidates expressed their support for free Wi-Fi. Only Mayor Don Lane and Pamela Comstock dissented against the idea at the Inside Scoop forum at Kuumbwa Jazz Center. There are a few barriers to citysponsored Wi-Fi, though, according to tech experts, starting with the speed of innovation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technology moves very, very quickly, and government moves at the speed of government,â&#x20AC;? says Peter Koht, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development coordinator. He notes there are also privacy and safety concerns that come into play. Public Wi-Fi hotspots have already flopped in cities like San Francisco, Mountain View, Pasadena Houston, St. Louis and Philadelphia. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up and running in Milpitas, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by no means the norm. Chris Stathis, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief tech officer, says the project would require a massive broadband, something the city has already committed to. But that will take time. Stathis adds people will want constant tech support, well outside the hours the city can offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want their Wi-Fi at 10 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock at night, and they want it on the weekends,â&#x20AC;? he says. Outgoing councilmember Ryan Coonerty has expressed concerns that free Wi-FI would turn stores â&#x20AC;&#x153;into showrooms for Internet companies,â&#x20AC;? and says he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard many people asking for Wi-Fi anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think we have to be careful that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put our businesses into a situation where they are paying sales tax and employing people and thenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;using a city infrastructureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowing people to buy from out state companies that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay sales tax,â&#x20AC;? Coonerty said in a public meeting last year. 0

Whoever came up with the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,â&#x20AC;? it apparently wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the Greeks. Last month, national gay menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fraternity Delta Lambda Phi filed a trademark infringement and unlawful trade suit against Delta Lambda Psi, a gender neutral â&#x20AC;&#x153;frarorityâ&#x20AC;? founded at UCSC in 2005. According to the lawsuit, filed by Portland firm Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, UCSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Delta Lambda Psi chose the name to â&#x20AC;&#x153;deceive the publicâ&#x20AC;? for its gain. Representatives from DL-Phi claim DL-Psi was founded after a group of UCSC students were exposed to their fraternity at a queer conference. Delta Lambda Psi defines itself as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a safe space for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, cisgender, intersex, queer, questioning, and ally membersâ&#x20AC;? and is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first gender neutral fraternity/sorority. It has two locations outside of UCSC: Northeastern Illinois University and the University of Oregon. Delta Lambda Phi, founded in 1986 and using â&#x20AC;&#x153;DLPâ&#x20AC;? as a trademark since 2001, has 30 chapters across the United States and Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After DLP [Delta Lambda Phi] discovered that Delta Lambda Psi was using a name that differed from DLPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DELTA LAMBDA PHI trademark by only a single consonant, and was also using the DLP trademark belonging to Delta Lambda Phi, DLP reached out to Delta Lambda Psi to try to resolve this dispute amicably. Although Delta Lambda Psi responded to initial inquiries, Delta Lambda Psi began delaying and refusing to address the serious harm and actual confusion caused by its infringement of DLPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trademarks,â&#x20AC;? reads Delta Lambda Phiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;DLP would prefer to spend its time and money elsewhere. However, Delta Lambda Psiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to engage actively and cooperatively in resolving this dispute has driven DLP to litigation,â&#x20AC;? the statement continues. But Eric Ball, an associate at Fenwick and West, representing Delta Lambda Psi in the lawsuit, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delta Lambda Psi respects Delta Lambda Phi and the alternative that it provides for gay men. As a gender-neutral frarority, Delta Lambda Psi does not compete with Delta Lambda Phi. Delta Lambda Psi

believes there is no merit to the lawsuit, and hopes that student groups can focus their energies on fostering respect, friendship and community service â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rather than suing each other.â&#x20AC;?

TOO CRUEL FOR SCHOOL Denice Barnes says administrators at Soquel Elementary failed to properly deal with the bullying of her son Quentin.

< =D 3 ; 0 3 @ % !      

Downed by the Schoolyard If Santa Cruz County doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address its bullying problems, experts say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only get worse BY JACOB PIERCE

I

n most ways, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you could call a normal kid.

Quentin Barnes enjoys sports like swimming and playing basketball, and has what his mother Denice Barnes calls a â&#x20AC;&#x153;goofy sense of humor.â&#x20AC;? When the fourth grader grows up, Quentin wants to be part-time professional baseball player and an entomologist. His enthusiasm for biology is already impressive for a nine-year-old. Denice, 43 years old, says her son was â&#x20AC;&#x153;typically a very happy, easygoing, positive kid.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she

was so worried to find Quentin crying and telling her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything wrong. Why do I deserve this?â&#x20AC;? Last year, Quentin, one of a handful of African Americans at his school, became a victim of bullying at Soquel Elementary School. Some of his classmates began playing a game they made up called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quentin Touchâ&#x20AC;? game. Quentin had the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quentin Touch,â&#x20AC;? according to the game. If another student touched him or was touched by him, the other student would get the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quentin Touch.â&#x20AC;? The basic idea comes from

the well-known book and movie series The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, in which kids would play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cheese Touchâ&#x20AC;? and avoid a slice of moldy Swiss cheese on the basketball court. (Paradoxically, the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plot intends to parody the mean-spirited games typically found on American playgrounds, not glorify them.) The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quentin Touchâ&#x20AC;? game lasted two or three months at first, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay in the classroom, Denice says. Her sonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schoolmates played it on the playground. People in other classes joined in.

HELPING HAND A Forum on Nov. 7 at Brook Knoll Elementary aims to help families like the Barnesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coping with bullying. After Quentin found out about the game being played behind his back, he told his third grade teacher. Principal Cata Fitzgerald made the students apologize to him and play a game of tetherball together. Denice says Quentin felt humiliated. Understandably so, says bullying expert Michael Josephson of the Josephson Institute for Youth Ethics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are totally ancient tactics,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forcing the bully to apologize is an absolute ludicrous joke.â&#x20AC;? The bully knows the apology is fake, Josephson adds, and so does the victim, who might even decide not to report an incident next time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea of trivializing itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;say sorry, shake hands and play tetherballâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is baloney,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has never worked and will never work.â&#x20AC;? Fitzgerald ignored repeated requests to be interviewed for this story about Quentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, and Soquel Elementary policies for dealing with bullying.

This year, problems have persisted. Denice says a child chased Quentin around the playground, hitting him and trying to knock him downâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even encouraging other kids to do the same. Quentin defended himself, striking back, and both kids lost their recess. Early last month, Quentin found out his classmates started playing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quentin Touchâ&#x20AC;? again and told his teacher, exactly what the principal had told him to do. According to Denice, the teacher never called her to let her know about the incident. And when Quentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, who lives in Atlanta, called Fitzgeraldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office to ask about it, he says she denied it and said no one had played the game since last year. Denice says Fitzgerald scheduled a training session on bullying, but administrators excluded Quentin and at least one other student â&#x20AC;&#x153;because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to feel uncomfortable.â&#x20AC;? Denice also says administrators

Pushed Around

Getting Worse

Quentin Barnes is not alone. 32 percent of students age 12 to 18 reported being bullied in the 20062007 school year, according to a report from the national Department of Education. And over 70 percent of students play some roll in bullying, whether as a bully, a victim or a witness. According to the Josephson Institute of Ethics, the figures are even higherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;their studies say half of students report being bullied each year. Ron Glass, associate education professor at UC-Santa Cruz, says that in our individualistic society

Young says that with the advent of cyber-bullying online, the issues have only gotten worse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frightening to realize how much bullying had been going on,â&#x20AC;? she says. The New York Times reported in 2010 that one in five middle school students said they had been cyberbullied. In the past two months, there have been three high-profile cases of suicide in the aftermath of cyberbullying, two in Ireland and one in Canada. Earlier this year, 15-year-old Amanda Cummings of New York stepped in front of a bus carrying

have criticized Quentin for not interacting better with other students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a preference to blame things on kids,â&#x20AC;? Denice says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been told several times that Quentin needs to improve his social skills.â&#x20AC;?

with many racial, gender and class distinctions, people with low status look for someone lower down on the social ladder to push around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprising to find bullies in an individualistic culture like ours,â&#x20AC;? Glass says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If kids have low status, they react in assertive ways because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how our culture tells them to be somebody.â&#x20AC;? Bullying expert Nicole Young from Optimal Solutions Consulting in Santa Cruz will be leading a discussion workshop, through First 5 Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Positive Parenting Program about bullying Wednesday Nov. 7. She says people refusing to stand up and address bullying is a serious issue in schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are encouraging bullying by standing by and watching it happen and also not saying anything. To really address bullying, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a lot of work and good communicationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from the kids, the parents, the teachers, the administration.â&#x20AC;? The workshop, which will be at Brook Knoll Elementary in Scotts Valley, will address what to do if oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s child is being bullied, why children bully one another and how to even tell itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening based on important signs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the child is all of a sudden wanting to be more isolated from their peers, that could be a sign,â&#x20AC;? Young says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There could be more obvious signs of more physical bullying if their coming home bruised or hurt or with their belongings missing.â&#x20AC;?

1 1 D O W N E D B Y THE SCHOOL YA RD a suicide note after receiving cruel comments on her Facebook page. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been a number of instances like that recently,â&#x20AC;? Young says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where people feel so alone and so helpless. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart breaking.â&#x20AC;? One of the most famous cases came in 2006, when 50-year-old Lori Drew created a fake MySpace account, which she used to harass 16-year-old Megan Meier. Meier took her life. Drew was indicted in 2008, but acquitted in 2009 because a judge determined the government has no authority to police websitesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; terms of service. Michael Josephson, a father of four, says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get wrapped up in the statistics, but the numbers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what matter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep enough,â&#x20AC;? Josephson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are enough suicides. There are enough people who are torn up emotionally. There are a bunch of kids who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go to school. There are enough examples where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start to stop counting and start fixing.â&#x20AC;?

Vicious Cycle After Quentin Barnesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bullying woes began last year, his mother began to see the clear signs of her son feeling isolated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since this is happening, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very withdrawn. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very sad. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even talk about it without getting emotional,â&#x20AC;? Denice says, a tear running down her face. At five feet and over 100 pounds, Quentin is no munchkin. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the 99th percentile for height. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over a full head taller than nine of the members on his 11-member baseball team. Denice calls him light-skinned â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baby Shaq,â&#x20AC;? after pro basketball behemoth Shaquille Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal, who was reportedly 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;6â&#x20AC;? at 13 years old. Denice worries that if the bullying continues, Quentin will start fighting back more aggressively and keep throwing more punchesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;something heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already threatened to do. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see that coming back to haunt him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want him to not get scholarships or educational opportunities because he hit someone who called him a name,â&#x20AC;? Denice says. Nine years old may sound like an early age to start talking about

someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term educational chances. But she has a lot of faith in Quentin. He gets very good grades, reads at a seventh-grade level, and even started a school reading club. He scores advanced in standardized STAR testing for both English and math.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They are encouraging bullying by standing by and watching it happen and also not saying anything.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nicole Young, Santa Cruz bullying expert And he talks at dizzying speeds of his knowledge of tarantulas, Amazonian fish and his true love, insects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are really cool, have cool designs work in special ways,â&#x20AC;? Quentin says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ants, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really small, but they carry about 90 times their weight!â&#x20AC;? Denice would like have Quentin transferred to a different school, but has been unsuccessful so far, and her family canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford private schooling. When it comes to tough times, Quentin tries to take them one day at a time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horrible,â&#x20AC;? Quentin says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me feel uncomfortable. It makes me not want to go to school at all, but you have to deal with things in life, so I go to school.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being Bullied: A Free Positive Parenting Workshopâ&#x20AC;? will be held Wednesday, Nov. 7 at Brook Knoll Elementary in Scotts Valley, from 5:30-8pm. For more information on bullying resources, visit www. first5scc.org.

All Lined Up Poet at memorial reading is Morton Marcusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; true kindred spirit BY STEVE PALOPOLI

A

rthur Sze never met Morton Marcus. And yet, as Santa Fe poet Sze travels to Santa Cruz this week to appear at the third annual Morton Marcus Memorial Reading at Cabrillo, he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but feel heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honoring a kindred spirit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just that Sze was reading and admiring Marcusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work way back when the Santa Cruz icon was writing in kayak, the groundbreaking literary magazine founded in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s by UCSC professor George Hitchcock. Nor that Sze served as poet laureate of Santa Fe, just as Marcus surely would have in Santa Cruz had the position existed before he died in 2009. (The host of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marcus memorial, Gary Young, was named the first Santa Cruz poet laureate in 2010.) No, what truly links the two poets is a shared philosophy. As Sze puts it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poetry is really for all people.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to work in the community in different ways,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Morton would have appreciated some of the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done.â&#x20AC;? Those things include teaching poetry in New Mexico schools and institutions for the deaf, on Indian reservations and death row. He has taken poetry to the rain forest islands of Alaska, and read in India, China, Paris and London. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to do a kind of outreach with poetry,â&#x20AC;? says Sze, in what may win

for Poetry Understatement of the Year. His long crusade for the art form, along with the body of work he has produced over the last four decades (including eight books of poetry, beginning with 1972â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Willow Wind) led to him being named a Chancellor to the Academy of American Poets in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still feel like a beginner after writing for 40 years,â&#x20AC;? says the American Book Award winner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very blessed. I never could have foreseen any of this.â&#x20AC;? Truth be told, though, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to foresee much of anything, including what his next poem is going to be at any given time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mysterious process for me,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I basically make a mess on the page. After time, it starts to coalesce. I have to lose my way in order to find it.â&#x20AC;? Sze is also known for his skill as a translator, thanks to his unusual collection The Silk Dragon. That desire to expose a global audience to new voices in poetry is something Sze believes he shared with the man heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay tribute to at the reading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a force for poetry,â&#x20AC;? says Sze of Marcus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not just his poetry.â&#x20AC;? .PSUPO.BSDVT.FNPSJBM3FBEJOH Saturday, Nov. 10, 7pm, Cabrillo Samper Recital Hall

PLOWED Playwright Sergei (Alexander Cruz) gets a talking to from Shakespeare (Shona Blumeneau), Moliere (Jacob Elias) and Sophocles (Samson Aufdermaur) in Cabrilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Black Snow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Curb Your Thespianism Cabrilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Black Snowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; satirizes the theater world BY JACOB PIERCE

B

lack Snow is a humorous window into the life of an aspiring novelist and playwright. Paradoxically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a roller coaster of broken dreams and desperation. On a dark and stormy night as Sergei Maksudov contemplates suicide, a man in a dark trench coat shows up to Maksudovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front door to ask for the writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loosely bound manuscript and to publish it. The interaction saves Maksudovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, but not his dignity. When the struggling writer arrives at the publishing company to collect his money, he gets only half. Worse yet, suddenly Maksudov canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to dinner or a party without someone making fun of his atrocious writing and bad grammar. So at least he can find refuge working in theater, because nothing could possibly go wrong while drafting simple plays. Right? Not so simple. There is a lot of love at first. Before Maksudov finishes a draft, the theater publicly compares him to Shakespeare. Actors routinely stop by to say how much they love his unseen masterpiece. (Maksudov also gets his first scathing review before the drama sees the light of day.) Based on a memoir by frustrated

Russian playwright Mikhail Bulgakov, Black Snow pokes fun at the world of art criticism and egomaniacal actors with an insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lens into the theatrical realm. The most obvious comparison would be to Mel Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hit film and musical The Producers. But Black Snowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s satire, although more obscure, is farther reaching. Perhaps a better comparison would be to televisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Office, because Bulgakovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story also targets needless bureaucracy, control freak bosses, yesmen and workplace rivalries. The dysfunctional theater companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much-revered director (Jackson Wolfe) is stout, chauvinistic and hilariousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; imagine Danny DeVito cast as a dramaloving Tony Soprano. Black Snow is a story for people with a stomach for awkward laughs. The plot goes to unexpected places, and if its ending were any less twisted, it would probably betray the disastrous arc of this fatalistic narrative. The moral of this playful storyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if there is one? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write plays. #MBDL4OPX Fri-Sun through Nov. 18 Black Box Theater, Cabrillo College

PAMELA ROSE

VAN DYKE PARKS

TALKDEMONIC

Paying tribute to the women songwriters of the golden age of popular vocals, singer Pamela Rose presents Wild Women of Song, a multimedia celebration that had fans on their feet at the San Francisco and Monterey Jazz Festivals. Described by one reviewer as equal parts concert and history lesson, the show is a retrospective of the lives and careers of game-changing artists including Alberta Hunter, Ida Cox, Peggy Lee and more. Rose, a soulful singer in her own right, has made a name for herself in the Bay Area with her rich, warm voice, playful disposition and extraordinary ability to connect with her audience whether singing jazz, blues or pop. Kuumbwa; $20 adv/$23 door; 7pm. (Cat Johnson)

Van Dyke Parks was born in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;40s to a neurologist, sang for Einstein with the Columbus Boychoir School in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s, arranged â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bare Necessitiesâ&#x20AC;? for Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Jungle Book in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s and started the first audio/visual department at a record company in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s. Since then, he has released a number of solo albums, collaborated with the Beach Boys and penned a series of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books. The man is prolific to say the least, and the legendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first visit to Santa Cruz will likely be as impressive as his history. Kuumbwa; $29.50; 7pm. (Janelle Gleason)

SUBLIME LBC & LONG BEACH REHAB A star-studded event for Sublime fans, Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley brings Sublime LBC and Long Beach Rehab to the stage for a night of exceptional covers and even some original tunes. The cover bands comprise members of Sublime, Bad Brains and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s sensation Smash Mouth, so the sounds stay authentic despite the decades and original members past. While Sublime LBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main goal is to pay tribute to the late Sublime singer Bradley Nowell, Long Beach Rehab takes that remembrance a step further by crafting new music in his honor. Both bands have toured the world, but take a stop tonight in Nowellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s onetime college town. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $15 adv; 9pm. (JG)

Rooted in instrumental hip-hop, the Portlandbased duo Talkdemonic pushes at the dividing line between beats and string music, and left-field sounds. Originally the creation of percussion/synth/production whiz Kevin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, Talkdemonic expanded several years ago to include viola player Lisa Molinaro. Playing what they describe as folktronic-hop, the two create a sweeping, crashing musical universe that balances noise and beauty, bringing to mind Explosions in the Sky, the Dirty Three and the like. Filling out a spectacular bill for the evening is the San Francisco band Extra Classic and producer/rapper Jel, cofounder of the underground hip-hop label Anticon. Crepe Place; $10; 9pm. (CJ)

JOE CRAVEN TRIO Taking the best of traditional American folk, blues and funk and blending it with the sounds of Brazil, Haiti and Ireland among others, Joe Cravenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trio crafts a unique groove filled with jazzy keyboards, eclectic percussion and an impressive collection of strings. Cravenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freestyle spirit makes for some interesting instruments (including pickling jars, credit cards and jawbones) and a positive influence for the young musicians he educates.

CAIRO GANG The original Cairo Gang was a group of British Intelligence agents who were assassinated in Ireland in 1920. This Cairo Gang is the moniker for multiinstrumentalist songwriter Emmett Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo project. Kelly, who has collaborated with numerous artists including Beth Orton and Joan of Arc, is perhaps best known, if somewhat under-appreciated, for his work with Bonnie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Princeâ&#x20AC;?

J BOOG Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multicultural, and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multicultural. Born of Samoan descent, J Boog grew up in Compton and lives in Hawaii. Remarkably, influences from all of those places and more can be heard in his music, which combines reggae with the even breezier island sound, though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearly falling more and more under the spell of Jamaica. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also under the spell of the Bay Area lately, spending a lot of time in NorCal and becoming almost a part of the local community around here. Appropriately then, he performs this show as a benefit for one of our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worthiest causes: Second Harvest Food Bank.

< =D 3 ; 0 3 @ % !      

The rousing, punch-drunk punk rock of Titus Andronicus comes off like the pub-soaked offspring of The Pogues and Against Me. Singer Patrick Stickles leads the band through anthems for literate underachievers, songs of rage and disenfranchisement for the smartest (and drunkest) guy sitting in the bar. While the ground Titus Andronicus covers is familiar, the results feel utterly original, buoyed by arrangements that include unusual elements such as fiddle and the sort of righteous passion that, when wielded by the right set of musicians, can make the oldest punk rock tricks seem new and vital once again. Catalyst; $10 adv/$13 door; 9pm. (Paul M. Davis)

TIME TO SHINE Diamond Ringsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Regan brings his breakout project to the Crepe Place Friday.

Ring of Truth The music of Diamond Rings is a window into John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soul BY STEVE PALOPOLI

hen Diamond Ringsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Yr Songsâ&#x20AC;? single came out in 2009, it stood out from the acres of other up-and-coming indie rock around it. It was more than just a glint of something; Canadian singer/songwriter John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision seemed to arrive fully formed and unstoppable, in two minutes of chugging but sleek guitar rock, with lyrics that clearly sprang directly from his heart to his mouth, with no stops in between. It had an enigmatic power to it, and Diamond Rings itself had a touch of the same. Fans of the song soon discovered that what sounded like a fully formed band was really a one-man project, with the strikingly lanky and perfectly artdesigned Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Regan at its core. His voice had echoes of Bowie, and his severe look drew on rock dress-up gods like Klaus Nomi while still managing to be unlike anything else. The question was: Who is Diamond Rings? For Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Regan, who performs at the Crepe Place Friday, that question only got more complicated while putting together his new album, Free Dimensional, the follow-up to 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Special Affections. Songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Runaway Loveâ&#x20AC;? on the record recapture the guitar magic of â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Yr Songs,â&#x20AC;? while others like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Day and Nightâ&#x20AC;? have a fully electronic club feel to them. The pronounced split can be kind of a risk for an artist seeking

to establish his musical identity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gotten the bulk of the record done, it became pretty clear that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just going to be one kind of sound. I worried about thatâ&#x20AC;Śfor about 48 hours,â&#x20AC;? says Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Regan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I decided I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really care. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m never going to be the type of artist that just does one thing. For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about embracing the feelings and the spirit of the song, and letting that song take me where it wants to go.â&#x20AC;? What it really boils down to, he admits, is that he finds listening to the same thing over and over again â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of boring.â&#x20AC;? Yet there is something unifying about the songs: Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear, concise way of speaking from the heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the goal of all my songs,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about me, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about trying to tap into some sort of collective consciousness, or some collective emotion or feeling that everyone can understand. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned anything in my time in music, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that the way I feel is often not much different from the way everyone else feels, deep down. For me, the big thing on this record was learning to trust that if I say whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on my mind, people are going to get it, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done in a way thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique and fresh.â&#x20AC;?

(Opens Fri at the Nick) SINGINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; IN THE RAIN (1952) By the time AFI released its latest list of 100 greatest American movies in 2007, this was at number five. Wow, really? Yeah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a truly great musical, with Gene Kelly at his peak, but even when it came out, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t considered that big a deal. In that sense, it was an early cult film, building its success and

immortal reputation slowly over the years. (Plays Thu at Scotts Valley) SKYFALL (PG-13; 143 min.) Director Sam Mendes attempts to do for James Bond what Christopher Nolan did for Batman. In terms of big-budget spectacle, at least, early reports are that he has, with Daniel Craig returning to play Bond a third time, 50 years after Sean Connery first portrayed him in Dr. No. (Opens Fri at 41st Ave, Cinema 9, Scotts Valley and Green Valley)

Reviews ALEX CROSS (PG-13; 101 min.) A serial killer (Matthew Fox) faces off in a battle of wits against police detective/ psychologist Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) in this adaptation of a James Patterson novel. ARGO (R; 120 min.) Actors play CIA agents all the time, but CIA agents playing actors? You know Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna love that. So now we have actors playing CIA agents playing actors in this new film based on an actual 1979 event (the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian caper,â&#x20AC;? as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now known) in which operatives pretended to be movie-biz types making a film called Argo, in order to rescue diplomats trapped in Iran. Ben Affleck directs and stars. CHASING MAVERICKS In this reallife Santa Cruz tale, our own legend Jay Moriarty (played by Jonny Weston) forms a unique friendship with Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) on a mission to tackle one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most daunting waves. CLOUD ATLAS During the 1800â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Adam is dying on a ship voyage to California and wonders if he is perhaps being poisoned by Dr. Goose (Tom Hanks) in this complex film with six different storylines. FINDING NEMO 3-D (G; 100 min.) Will he be easier or harder to find in 3-D? Hopefully not harder, because Albert Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nerves are shot as it is. FLIGHT (R) An airline pilot (Denzel Washington) makes an emergency landing to save a plan from crashing, but an investigation reveals a troubling discovery. FUN SIZE Wren just wanted to spend Halloween at a party with her crush. But when her mom (Chelsea Handler) orders her to take her little brother Albert trickor-treating, she loses him. Shenanigans ensue. FRANKENWEENIE (PG; 87 min.) In a bit of a career slump of late, Tim Burton expands his early short about a re-animated dog (which basically got him fired from Disney) into a full-length animated feature. HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA (PG; 91 min.) Adam Sandler and Addy Samberg team up for another movie, but this time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animated and Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the voice of Dracula, so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have to see or hear him. His count runs

a hotel for monsters that is stumbled upon by a human boy. Wackiness ensues. THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS (R; 96 min) Russell Crowe is Jack Knife, an opium-addicted soldier named after his signature weapon, in this action-packed search for fabled Chinese gold. THE MASTER (R; 137 min.) Paul Thomas Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most accomplished film to date tells of the partnership between a shell-shocked Navy vet of 1950 named Freddie (Joaquin Phoenix) and a dapper, bigger-than-life fraud, Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman). PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 (R; 88 min) Those who were bummed that Paranormal Activity 3 provided no insight into what happened to Katie and Hunter (or about anything else, really) may be happy to know that the series is getting back on track, at least story-wise. Original writer-director Orin Peli has long since checked out, but the found-footage song remains the same. Five years after the events of the first two films, another family has to find an excuse to carry cameras around all the time when Katie and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Robbieâ&#x20AC;? move in next door. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER (PG13; 103 min.) I know, I know, it must be a short film. Ha ha. But apparently there are perks to be found in this story of two seniors who take an introverted freshman under their wing. SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS (R; 109 min.) A struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) has just messed with the wrong gangster (Woody Harrelson), by stealing his fluffy Shih Tzu. SILENT HILL: REVELATION Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a revelation: the first Silent Hill movie sucked. Not as bad as, say, Doom, maybe, but still. Five years later, this sequel picks up where the last one left off, and tries to work in more of the mythology from the video game series. SMASHED (R; 85 min.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perfectâ&#x20AC;? alcoholic relationship between husband Aaron Paul and wife Mary Elizabeth Winstead is ruined when wife decides to get sober in this comedy-drama thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven a favorite on the festival circuit. WRECK-IT RALPH (PG) John C. Reilly is the voice of the title character, a videogame villain who longs to be a hero, in this Disney film.

CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY (2009) Though conservatives have been trying to make Michael Moore seem like a joke for the last 20 years, his most recent documentary on the real story behind the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial collapse was as well-received as any of his films, despite the fact that it is the most abstract and complicated in its subject matterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not as much, of course, after being run through Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pop-doc

(Plays Thu at Santa Cruz 9) THE CROW (1994) Perhaps this movie was so popular because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what many people wished Tim Burtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Batman could have been five years earlier. This film couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have existed without Burtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleek goth vision, true, and yet it still felt like a brand-new type of comic-book movieâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;darker, grittier and flat-out shocking in the nihilism of its bad guys (Michael Wincottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance as the worldweary sadist Top Dollar is still

hearty creation, the pizza was slathered with a perfect balance of fresh heirloom tomato sauce and mild, fresh mozzarella ($12). Huge fresh leaves of basil had been strewn on top of the pie, and their pungent minty aroma perfumed the table. We might have added house-made fennel for $4, or anchovies or arugula for $3 more.

hile the rest of you were feasting on sugary candy corn, we spent our traditional Halloween dinner at Avanti. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;oldâ&#x20AC;? Avanti, a.k.a. the new Pizzeria Avanti, where Jeremy Geise, son of owners Paul and Cindy Geise, has grown gracefully into his role as resident host. What a pleasure to be back in one of our favorite dining rooms, especially since it was immediately apparent that very little had been altered. The back bar still sports its blackboard listings of wines. The row of souvenir faience pottery still lines the ceiling. Ella Fitzgerald beams her approval upon the entry dining room. The main changes we saw were good onesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

attractive new, comfortable chairs, and more generous table spacing. Service was excellentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always welcoming to be offered a sample taste of a wine you might like to order. Thanks to a very compelling taste, I ended up toasting All Hallowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve with a glass of inky Nerello Mascalese 2010 from northern Sicily. Edgy with tannins yet ripe enough to romance a garlicky pizza, this robust wine opened beautifully over the course of our dinner ($8, just like every wine by the glass). The new stemless wineglasses add another rustic touch. We shared an antipasti plate offering roasted cauliflower, mushrooms and romesco, surrounded by a trio of salumiâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;outstanding, densely flavored,

earthy coppa, plus thinly shaved prosciutto and a generous portion of sliced salame. Also $8. Our secondi was an evening special salad of baby arugula, highlighting transparent slices of pickled yellow beets, shaves of pickled red onions, avocado and a notable shallot vinaigrette enhanced with lemon zest. An utterly delicious salad for $8, perfect for the two of us to share. With tastebuds revved up, we finished up with one of the house signature 12-inch pizzas. Pizzeria Avantiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specialty involves moderately thin, pliant crust, rather than the paper-thin Roman-style one tends to associate with â&#x20AC;&#x153;designerâ&#x20AC;? pizzas. A

ZAMEEN now provides a food app you can access with your own bare hands. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m referring to the ginormous wraps you can find for $7 at the Zameen Mediterranean Cuisine food truck parked in the Performing Arts parking lot at UCSC weekdays from 11:30am-2:30pm. Whatever you order, you must try some of the wicked good green jalapeĂąo hot sauce. It is both delicious and spicy. Ditto the harissa, but my vote goes to the green sauce JOHNNYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HARBORSIDE is hosting a Winemaker Dinner with Carmel Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joyce Vineyards on Friday Nov. 9. The $75 per person (sans tax & tip) price benefits Cabrillo Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding Culinary Arts program, but more to the point it allows you to feast your way through appetizers of multiple poke creations, spring rolls and pan-seared day boat scallops with uni risotto. Then comes a course of red peppercorn-crusted wild boar loin, followed by dessert of saffron citrus panna cotta. Yeow! All paired with appropriate wines.

Robert Marsh Robert Marsh is a well-known Central Coast wine rep whose portfolio includes the top Santa Cruz Mountains wineries. He spoke to me about breaking into the business, changes in the industry and some of his own favorites. 6]eRWRg]cUSbW\b]eW\SaOZSa- ROBERT MARSH: I got into wine

sales though my bar tending experience at the original Pearl Alley Bistro. I was a budding wine lover, still am for that matter, and this was the place to enjoy a good glass of wine. Wine by glass was not the norm then. For me, Pearl Alley Bistro was a breath of exceedingly fresh air in the wine world. I hung out there, and got a reputation for imbibing the best wines they offered by the glassâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;usually French Burgundy. At the same time, I was trying to secure my Ph.D. at UCSC in political sociology. But after convincing the Pearl Alley owners to hire me part-time to tend their unique wine bar, I said bye-bye to a college teaching career. Fortunately for me, the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s just happened to be the front end of the wine boom taking hold in California. I was able to meet almost everybody who counted in this world, as we would pour their wines and â&#x20AC;&#x153;give them exposure.â&#x20AC;? Pearl Ally for me became a great spot to network; after a while there, I began to feel that I could go on to to the next level of the wine world. G]c¸dSaSS\a][SPWUQVO\USaW\bVSW\Rcab`gRc`W\Ug]c`QO `SS`EVObO`Sa][S]TbVSb`S\Rag]c¸dS\]bWQSR-In the current

era, wine tastes are broadening a bit. There is a movement among wine geeks, the master sommeliers, to push the non-Chardonnay white wine just to prove they know something about wine and warrant their jobs. Amazingly now, rosĂŠ is â&#x20AC;&#x153;in.â&#x20AC;? I personally view this acceptance of rosĂŠ as a big plus. No other wine is as versatile for food pairings, especially at lunch, as this wine. G]c`TOd]`WbSeW\Sa- I love Pinot Noir: California, France and New Zealand. When made right, it is the most sensual wine on the planet. My other favorite wine is red Bordeaux, particularly the Cabernet side such as Pauliac and Margaux. Give me Bordeaux or give me an artisan IPA beer; both are superior food beverages. Finally, my favorite winery in the world is Ridge Vineyards, located right here in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Except for a couple other wineries in California, no other winery is doing so much to bring acceptance to wine as a moderating and life-enhancing beverage. Christina Waters
