Rhapsodies After the Storm Snapshots of Hurricane Sandy in Far Rockaway BY JONAH RASKIN

I

went to New York last weekend to perform a wedding ceremony, and while I was there I figured I might as well go to one of the areas hardest hit by hurricane Sandy, the Far Rockaways. I’d been there in the summer, and I have a dear friend who lives there. When he went there to work, I went with him. We drove into the war zone from Manhattan, traffic snarled, troops wearing the colors of camouflage, an army of dump trucks, New York police directing drivers around mounds of refuse, gnarled fences, dead electrical wires down in the street, a sense of suspense hanging overhead. At least the old sun warmed the polyglot neighbors sharing food and hope. The disaster brought out the saints, the criminals and city bureaucrats imposing rules on ornery citizens perched on the edge of the city working with volunteers to redeem their homes. Here are some of the images in my head: the rosebush blighted in my friend Paul’s front yard, the garden soil sogged with oil and salt from the sea, the sound of a solitary bird singing in a bare tree, the air filled with the stench of garbage, a stray cat walking along the top of a sagging brick wall. In the gutted basement, drywall removed, Paul salvaged family heirlooms: his great grandfather’s record of military service in the Spanish American War and the water-soaked score for “Melodic Rag” in Eubie Blake’s own hand, and I wondered what rag Blake might play for the ravaged Far Rockaways on this Sunday. We ambled along the mud-covered street to the sea, past the wrecked cars ready for the junkyard, past desolate houses, nearly everything broken that was built by humans. Past tattered American flags fluttering in the breeze, past two women wearing face masks against the stench and contamination, and on a wall these words handwritten: “We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken.” I took nothing away with me, but it was a part of me now, inside forever. Jonah Raskin grew up on Long Island, N.Y. He lives in Santa Rosa. Open Mic is a weekly op/ed feature in the Bohemian. We welcome your contribution.

Beyond the Hootenanny

Local Is Lovely

You made an excellent decision when you chose to shine a Boho Award spotlight on Josh Windmiller of North Bay Hootenanny (“Honoring the Arts,” Nov. 7). For years, Josh has unflaggingly nurtured the folk-Americana community in Sonoma County, creating a vibrant scene where new artists can matriculate from open mics to headline slots at the Mystic Theatre and into radio airplay.

Local food systems all over the United States face challenges and threats. Organic farmers in Sonoma County have to compete with commercial superstores, economic incentives that favor big business and consumers who are misinformed on what is local and good for the environment. This means there’s a constant price difference between commercial produce and local organic produce.

Not only is Josh a tireless booster of great local music and roots culture, but he is an abundantly productive artist in his own right. He is the creative force behind the Crux, who in 2012 released a full-length CD, played dozens of gigs large and small—including a tour of the Northwest—and were voted Best Americana Band by readers of this august journal. Lastly, I was privileged to work closely with Josh on This Train: A Woody Guthrie 100th Birthday Jubilee, which attracted thousands of folks to Railroad Square this summer to take in headliner Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and a dozen local artists. I’ve worked with a lot of people over the years on a lot of big projects, but working with Josh was a rare pleasure and privilege. His commitment to the music and the experience is uncompromising; his drive, determination, and sheer hard work are a marvel to behold, and still, somehow, he remains unfailingly thoughtful, upbeat and kind. Simply put, Josh is a treasure, and we’re lucky to have him. Thanks for giving him his due in your pages.

DALE GEIST Kenwood

Thanks for writing, Dale! While we’re on the subject, now’s a good time to mention that the photo of Josh in last week’s paper was shot by Brian Howlett.—The Ed.

Local farms aren’t getting any help from the government and have to deal with small business taxes that make their business just that much harder to keep afloat. Shoppers are tricked by milliondollar ad campaigns into buying food at the “local” Walmart, drawing business away from the local economy. But people here in Sonoma County are starting to get the picture. They are appreciating and purchasing more local grass-fed beef and dairy. Local restaurants create seasonal menus that correspond with the local harvests so they can buy from organic farms yearround, and some restaurants even have their own farms! Not to mention the growing sizes of farmers markets. According to Michael Shuman’s paper “The Competitiveness of Local Living Economies,” “Local ownership in business pumps up the multiplier effect of every local dollar spent, which increases local income, wealth, jobs, taxes, charitable contributions, economic development, tourism, and entrepreneurship.” Every time we spend that extra dollar to buy something grown or raised local, we are boosting our economy and our own health. Keep it up, Sonoma County!

be his war on hunger and malnutrition.

Now, after 35 years of studies linking meat consumption with elevated risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and other killer diseases, the MyPlate icon, representing the USDA’s current dietary guidelines for Americans, recommends vegetables, fruits and grains, but never mentions meat and shunts dairy off to one side. It all started with one brave senator from South Dakota.

In 1977, McGovern’s Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs published dietary goals for the United States. It marked the first time that a U.S. government document recommended reduced meat consumption. The meat industry forced the abolition of the committee, voted McGovern out of office, and warned bureaucrats never to challenge meat consumption again.

Paper

Hayden’s World Fifty years ago, Students for a Democratic Society released the Port Huron Statement. As one of the first American student activist movements of the ’60s, the group’s manifesto declared racism and Cold War alienation to be the two biggest issues facing Americans and humanity. Tom Hayden, later known as Mr. Jane Fonda in some circles, was the manifesto’s main author. The former California state legislator continues to work as both a chronicler and participant in activist movements. Hayden speaks on “Participatory Democracy: From Port Huron and Occupy Wall Street—What’s Next?” in an event sponsored by the Praxis Peace Institute and the Dominican green MBA program on Thursday, Nov. 15, at Dominican University. 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael. 7:30pm. $20. 707.939.2973.

Savio’s Legacy BIGGEST FANS Though Sonoma County has natural resources for local energy, it may have to buy from an outside company.

Glow Local Sonoma County’s public power agency considers energy source options BY RACHEL DOVEY

A

s towns across Sonoma County consider breaking with PG&E and forming Sonoma Clean Power, the energy sources that would light and warm local homes—as well as the company that would supply them—are still unknown. Last year, Sonoma County’s water agency began studying the

feasibility of creating a Community Choice Aggregation, or CCA, in which local governments would buy power from a supplier of their choice and sell it to residents in their jurisdiction. Since AB 117 was passed in 2002, Marin and recently San Francisco have formed CCAs, using PG&E’s lines while purchasing energy elsewhere. Consumers living in the area Marin Clean Energy supplies are given the chance to opt out and

stay with PG&E, and San Francisco is planning a similar policy for its fledgling organization. But although the two CCAs supply an energy mix generated partly from renewable sources to their customers, both have faced scrutiny for trading one gas and electric giant with a dubious environmental record for another: Shell. Marin Clean Energy signed a five-year contract with Shell Energy North America in February of 2010, and San ) 10

As the leader of the Free Speech movement at U.C. Berkeley, Mario Savio left an indelible mark on the school’s history of activism. “There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part,” spoke Savio on the steps of Sproul Hall in 1964. “And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels . . . upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop!” Savio spent the last years of his life teaching at Sonoma State University, and recently, donors funded the establishment of the Mario Savio Speakers’ Corner on the northwest corner of Stevenson Quad at SSU. A dedication honoring the free speech leader’s life takes place on Thursday, Nov. 15, in Stevenson Quad at SSU. 1801 East Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. Noon. Free.—Leilani Clark

Francisco’s board of supervisors approved a four-and-a-half-year contract between the same power leviathan and CleanPowerSF in September. Marin activist and publisher of Solar Times Sandy LeonVest has been one of the most vocal North Bay critics of this alliance with the multinational corporation. “SENA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, a dues-paying member of the democracy-busting American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and one of the world’s worst polluters and human rights abusers,” she wrote in a recent edition of her newsletter. In an article last year, the Bohemian examined Sonoma County’s landscape and concluded that between the coast, the geysers and the thriving agricultural community, this region’s CCA could be different. California’s Renewable Energy Secure Communities thought the same thing in 2009, when it awarded the water agency a $1 million grant to research geothermal heat-pump technology and treated wastewater, solar voltaic and wind power generation. Whether or not other counties are able to truly go local for their heat and electricity, it’s a real possibility for Sonoma. According to Sonoma County Water Agency deputy chief engineer Cordel Stillman, the agency’s board of directors has set the goal of locally generating onethird of the county’s total power, or 120 megawatts at peak, by 2030, if a local CCA continues to go forward. Local advocacy nonprofit Climate Protection Campaign is on the steering committee of Sonoma Clean Power, and according to its website, it would like to see over half of Sonoma’s power gleaned from local sources. “We want to get local power as soon as possible and we think there is potential to get much more locally, but it will take a lot of effort between here and there,” says the campaign’s communications director Brad Heavner. The CCA, which is currently being pitched to local governments around Sonoma County, has to be stable

financially to even get to that 2030 date, he points out. Sonoma’s power agency would likely require each household to pay between $4 and $10 more each month over the next 20 years, according to the water agency’s feasibility study (though Paul Fenn, who wrote the 2002 law permitting CCAs, believes a zerorate increase is possible). There’s a risk that if too many people opt out of the CCA, it will have to sell its excess power and take a loss, the study concludes. Part of the financial picture will include the company chosen to supply Sonoma Clean Power’s energy, and if it comes up with a competitive price, that company could be Shell, according to Stillman. “What is going to be palatable for the consumer, that’s going to be a big concern for us,” he says. Nine potential suppliers, including Consolidated Edison, Calpine and Goldman-Sachs, have been interviewed by the agency, Stillman wrote in an email, adding that the agency has yet to receive formal proposals and supplier price ranges. According to Charles Sheehan, communications spokesperson for CleanPowerSF, the new agency ended up choosing Shell partly because of its green portfolio, which includes state-certified renewable energy generated from solar panels and wind turbines, and partly because “it’s a credit-worthy institution. They could make credit assurances to the city so it wouldn’t be put at financial risk.” “The less we can rely on long-term contracts, the better,” says Heaver, speaking about a potential liaison with the same oil company. “But right now it’s all about the numbers.” However Sonoma County’s CCA could bridge the gap between PG&E and locally sourced power, Heaver feels confident that it will happen. While he says there haven’t been any guarantees yet that geysers, wind and solar will be the future of Sonoma’s CCA, he says the job creation that could come with building plants and turbines is important to the steering committee and the Sonoma County Water Agency’s board. “We have an entity that is very concerned about local power,” he says.

Talking Turkey Right-to-Know campaign goes to Washington

BY JULIANE POIRIER

I

t’s commonplace for cause-related groups to issue talking points before Thanksgiving, so when people confront their backwards-thinking Uncle Bill or uninformed Aunt Jennifer over dinner, they can have pertinent facts at hand with which to pitch their cause.

I typically advise against political discussions with relatives who don’t share your values; best to keep the peace in families. However, I make a small exception this year on behalf of a nonpartisan issue: the defeat of Proposition 37 via a huge corporate misinformation campaign. Proposition 37 sought to require labeling of foods containing genetically engineered ingredients. In the effort to give citizens the right to know what is in their food, those advocating on behalf of the populace raised $9.2 million (full disclosure: I helped others raise some of that money) and many spent uncounted hours volunteering. Those threatened by Proposition 37 didn’t need to go out and raise the money—they simply wrote checks

totaling $46 million and bought a lot of television time. Monsanto handed over $8 million to block our right to know. Dupont, Dow, Pepsi, Coke and Kraft all gave $2 million or more each. The list was exclusively corporate donations. The Grocery Manufacturers Association gave over $2 million; their members include ConAgra, Coca Cola, Starbucks, Target and hundreds of manufacturers. The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) also includes the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, so when you talk to your relatives about how important it is to know what’s in your food, let them know that the misinformation commercials were paid for in part by a prison system several states away. To the other relatives, mention that on the GMA membership roll is a North Bay business called the Perfect Puree of Napa Valley. Locally based food companies that do not belong to the GMA supported Proposition 37, including Amy’s Kitchen, located in Petaluma. Donors supporting the right-to-know campaign included individuals—thank you Kent Whealy ($1 million), Ali Partovi ($289,000) and Mark Squire ($258,000). Donors also included Dr. Bronner’s and Lundberg Farms. Most funding that supported our right to know came from California; most funding to defeat it came from out of state. Help your relatives understand that to follow the money is to discover the motives for a campaign. It is naive to think that fair information is going to come from the corporation whose engineered foods would have to be labeled. Corporations profiting from GE ingredients did not want you to vote for Proposition 37. But it’s not over. You can sign the Right-toKnow petition to the FDA seeking a federal labeling law. Go to justlabelit.org, and take a stand for the will of the people over giant corporate money.


’SHROOM UNION Phil Lesh helps chef Chris Fernandez with musroom prep in Terrapin’s kitchen.

Back in Terrapin Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads more than just a Deadhead’s paradise BY JESSICA DUR TAYLOR

T

he Grateful Dead were always more than just a band. Together with their fans, they created a lifestyle, a philosophy and, mostly, a community. So it only makes sense that Terrapin Crossroads, the new restaurant owned by bassist Phil Lesh and his wife, Jill, is much more than a place to assuage your hunger.

On a sizable chunk of land jutting placidly onto the San

Rafael Canal, Terrapin Crossroads encompasses a music venue, bar/ taproom, outdoor patio, dining room, huge kitchen, upstairs living room, family room and even a private marina for those customers who prefer to sail in. No wonder the folks who work there refer to it as “the campus.” It happens to be Day of the Dead when I visit the campus, which is not far from the Grateful Dead’s longtime recording studio where albums like Shakedown Street and Built to Last were produced. Though the building (formerly the Seafood Peddler) echoes with the

memory of a much earlier time, the mood is celebratory, both an homage to and promise of life lived large. The Grate Room, which is being acoustically remastered and upgraded into what director of operations Brian Reccow calls “a world-class music venue,” will reopen on Nov. 29 with a show featuring (who else?) Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and Jackie Greene. “It was good before,” Reccow tells me, eyes shining, “but now it’ll be phenomenal.” Like the Dead, Terrapin Crossroads appeals to a multi-

generational crowd. A carpeted dining nook aptly called “the family room” has leather couches and a shelf of toys and games to keep the kiddies entertained. After all, this is the kind of place where you linger, whether on a tall black barstool listening to the free Sunday brunch band in the shade of the soon-to-be-tented patio, or tucked into a cozy booth in the dining room with its wellworn baby grand, fireplace and porthole-style windows. Covering the reclaimed-wood walls are framed photos of Phil and his friends—Jerry before the beard, Dylan before he found Jesus. Truly upscale is the second floor living room, whose color palette is all muted blues, grays and creams with bright splashes of pink and orange. Diners can enjoy livestreamed shows on a flat-screen TV from the often sold-out Grate Room or peruse the bookshelf’s eclectic collection of hardcovers on everything from the Sistine Chapel to Chez Panisse. At the culinary helm is chef Chris Fernandez, formerly the executive chef at Sausalito’s Poggio, recognized in 2004 by Esquire magazine as one of the best new restaurants in the country. Fernandez takes pride in what he describes as “hyperseasonal and local gastro-pub food that is accessible to lots of different people.” In the drying rack of his kitchen, slices of bright orange persimmons await their fate on the cheese plate. The cuisine is as vast and varied as the Grateful Dead’s discography. A charcuterie platter ($14) and rib-eye steak ($28) share the menu with a grilled cheese sandwich ($12) and mushroom risotto ($17). There are also woodfired pizzas ($11–$14), a fun-to-read cocktail menu (Satan’s Whiskers, anyone?), and plenty of local beer and wine. This is a place designed to make people happy. As Reccow says, “Terrapin Crossroads is Phil’s opportunity to give back to a community that has embraced him for so many years.” Terrapin Crossroads, 100 Yacht Club Drive, San Rafael. 415.524.2773.

Brazilians are sexy bunch, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no arguing that fact. Could it be their diet of mostly lean meat and bread made with lowcarb tapioca flour? Brazilian cheese bread is a delicious and healthy snack, breakfast or side dish, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least one company bringing it to the masses in Sonoma County. The Cosmic Cookie Jar specializes in gluten-free baked goods, one of which happens to be pao de queijo (pronounced â&#x20AC;&#x153;pow dah kay-zhooâ&#x20AC;?). Literally translated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;bread of cheeseâ&#x20AC;? from Portuguese, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made from oil, water, milk (or soy milk), salt, tapioca flour, garlic, Parmesan cheese and eggs. The dough turns out like cottage cheese but bakes up into light, spongy, rich bread balls that explode with flavor without feeling too heavy. The bakery has other flavors, like pesto, hot pepper, gorgonzola, curry and sundried tomato. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure that anyone mixes in the flavors the way that we do,â&#x20AC;? says Olga Jones, who makes up half of the Cosmic Cookie Jar team with husband, Craig. In Brazil, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sometimes stuffed with Catupiry (a brand of cream cheese), guava paste or dulce de leche, all but negating their healthy aspects. If America is going to catch on to these tasty balls, cream cheese and dulce de leche can only help. Cosmic Cookie Jar can be found at farmers markets around Sonoma County and online at www.thecosmiccookiejar.com. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nicolas Grizzle

Timber Crest Farms

Olabisi & Trahan Wineries In the fancy

Formerly of Lytton Springs Road, Peterson Winery has relocated to Timber Crest, where they pour on weekends right at the cellar door. Also on hand is Papapietro-Perry and the six Family Wineries of Dry Creek. Dashe Cellars crafts

heart of downtown Napa, a low-budget “cellar” where wines are shelved, with clever economy, in stacks of wood pallets; vibes are laid-back and real. Carneros Chardonnay and fruity but firm and focused Cab and Merlot from Suisin Valley,

By appointment, Monday through Friday, weekends when available. $25. 707.963.2636.

Truchard Vineyards (WC) No matter how attentive you are to the directions, no matter how much you study the quaint, hand-drawn map found online, no matter how vigilantly you watch the street addresses numerically climb along Old Sonoma Road, you will inevitably miss Truchard Vineyards. What follows is a three-point turn on a blind, two-lane road, with a single thought in your head: “This wine had better be worth the insurance deductible.” But with Cabernet this good, it is. 3234 Old Sonoma Road, Napa. By appointment. 707.253.7153.

Uncorked at Oxbow Across from the Public Market, this remodeled house in Napa’s historic “Little Italy” is a casual and unaffected joint.

t 97 years young, Corrick’s is the last place one would expect to go changing things up. That’s what shoppers treasure about the place. For generations of Santa Rosans, Corrick’s has been the go-to destination for graduation fountain pens, wedding invitations, real cards that one sends with a stamp, the odd 25-cent manila envelope. The value of the friendly, need I say hometown service, amounts to much more than nostalgic whimsy. So the recent inclusion of a winetasting room was a real eyebrow-raiser. Really? How much convincing did it take to open their aisles of fine china and crystal to the world of winetasting yahoos? None at all, beams co-owner Keven Brown. He says he couldn’t be happier. Brown always thought that Corrick’s matched the selection of wine paraphernalia seen in better tasting rooms; they just didn’t have the wine. So he sent the china and silverware on a hike across the floor, and enlisted Ken and Melissa Moholt-Siebert to open their first tasting room. Their product, Brown says, is a nice fit with the arts and crafts that he features from local artisans like Nichibei Potters, represented in galleries nationwide. Also represented nationwide, Ancient Oak ramped up to 8,000 cases in just six years. Ken’s grandfather planted Pinot Noir at the home ranch on Old Redwood Highway 18 years ago. “This is more than a hobby for us,” says Melissa, who formerly worked in neuroscience in Portland, Oregon, although Ken hops off the tractor now and then to pick up his architecture career. Until now, it was near impossible to open a tasting room in Santa Rosa’s downtown, while its visitors center found that nearly half of visitors were looking for local winetasting opportunities. City council wised up. The code was amended to state that tasting rooms are allowed “by right,” which basically means less red tape, more red wine. Ancient Oak’s 2009 Siebert Ranch Pinot Noir ($35) has a savory, marjoram aroma, fine tannin and cherry fruit. No doubt, as Melissa says, it’s a great foil with lamb (their estate vineyard is maintained with a resident flock of Corriedales). But the 2010 Russian River Valley, Pagnano Vineyard Zinfandel ($32) is the jewel here, packed with luscious boysenberry fruit. The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon ($32) hails from an Alexander Valley vineyard developed by the late architect John Carl Warnecke. With chocolate cordial aromas and soft tannins, here’s a Cab to enjoy now. Or decant in one of Corrick’s fine selection of crystal displayed just outside the “no wine beyond this point” sign. Step carefully. Ancient Oak Cellars, 637 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. Open Monday– Saturday, 11am–5pm. $10 tasting fee. 707.536.1546.

Holiday Shenanigans

The South A Street neighborhood in Santa Rosa is a great place to spend an afternoon, what with its blend of coffee shops, restaurants and art galleries, but when Winterblast kicks off every November, the street really comes alive. In addition to the annual sofa parade (yes, it’s a parade of sofas, just like it sounds), the annual street party offers open galleries, live music, a kids zone, street performers, coffee, beer and local food vendors. It’s the perfect opportunity to break out the hot toddies and celebrate community. Winterblast takes over A Street on Saturday, Nov. 17, in the SOFA district. Sebastopol Avenue at A Street, Santa Rosa. 5–8pm. Free. 707.695.1011.

Real Writing Writers dream about the day that their novel is finally published, gracing the shelves of bookstores and miraculously ending up as an Oprah’s book club pick. But what about all the work that goes on before that joyous day? In a talk titled “My Long, Slippery, UphillBoth-Ways Path to Publication,” acclaimed Sebastopol author Seré Prince Halverson will share the 25-year, two-marriage, four-kid, two-agent, three-novel-long journey that lead to the publication of The Underside of Joy by Dutton. Part of the monthly writers forum series hosted by Marlene Cullen, the talk offers a chance to get real about writing fiction. Seré Prince Halverson talks about her writing journey on Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Petaluma Community Center. 320 N. McDowell Blvd., Petaluma. 7pm. $15. 707.762.6279.

Sweet as Honey Before Sade hit the scene, there was another chanteuse in town by the name of Angélique Kidjo. The West African singer is in a class of her own, with a voice and presence that could move mountains. Logozo, Kidjo’s first album, was released in 1992 to huge success and reached No. 1 on the Billboard World Music chart. The Benin-born superstar has since split her time between music and activism for organizations like UNICEF, Oxfam and Africa for Women’s Rights. Her song lyrics span four languages, Fon, French, Yoruba (the native language of Nigeria) and English, all sung with an intoxicatingly smooth, honey-toned wonder. Angélique Kidjo plays on Friday, Nov. 16, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 8pm. $35–$45. 707.226.7372.

African Brew Certain bands simply need to be seen live. Yemen Blues, a band anchored in the forceful, gorgeous singing of frontman Ravid Kahalani, falls into this category, without a doubt. With a blend of Yemeni, Jewish and African traditions, the global band takes the idea of fusion to an entire new level. Kahalani sang Yemenite chants as a child, but as he grew older he began to explore West African music, jazz and funk. The result is a danceable, percussive brew, built around an orchestra of sounds from a menagerie of instruments, both Western and African. Yemen Blues plays on Sunday, Nov. 18, at the Osher Marin JCC’s Kanbar Center. 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 7:30pm. $30–$40. 415.444.8000. —Leilani Clark

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;JEALOUSY OR GUILT (THE TALE OF GENJI)â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Roberto Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large retrospective includes 60 works.

A Different World Roberto Chavez retrospective at SRJC explores unlikely career from East Los Angeles artist BY LEILANI CLARK

F

or most kids growing up in postdepression, World War IIâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;era East Los Angeles, becoming a professional artist wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of my friends went into the service and ended up in menial jobs,â&#x20AC;? says Roberto Chavez, born in the Maravilla area of East L.A. in 1932. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the younger kids in the

neighborhood ended up in prison or strung out on dope. The medium of art helped me to see other possibilities.â&#x20AC;? Against the odds, Sanchez became a life-long teacher and painter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an accomplishment that Chavez might never have seen if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gone the way of most of the other kids from his hometown, a once diverse, working-class neighborhood with a large Mexican-American

population. From Nov. 15 through Dec. 13, the Robert F. Agrella Gallery at SRJC features the ďŹ rstever Chavez retrospective, an exhibit comprising 60 works. Encouraged by his family and teachers from early on, Chavez took art classes in high school and went to Los Angeles Community College before transferring to UCLA, where he received a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in art. It was a path that took him into teaching, a profession that Chavez practiced for over 40 years; it led

him from the halls of East Los Angeles Community College, where he helped found one of the ďŹ rst Mexican-American studies departments in the country in 1969, to teaching in juvenile halls and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prisons across Southern and Central California. He retired to a tucked-away corner of southern Arizona two years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luckily, I was able to make a living doing something I really believed in, which is that art can be an inďŹ&#x201A;uence of change for people,â&#x20AC;? says Chavez, who also spent 10 years in Fort Bragg in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had myself as proof.â&#x20AC;? Like his childhood home, with its mix of Jewish, Mexican, Armenian, Italian, Russian and Japanese populations, Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art takes hybrid forms. Formed from a hodgepodge of inďŹ&#x201A;uencesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from European abstract expressionists to Mexican artists JosĂŠ Clemente Orozco and RuďŹ no Tamayoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work plays at the intersection of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joy and pain, capturing the simpler moments (a mother sitting peacefully in a chair, a still life with fruit) along with war scenes of naked, bloody bodies. Paintings like Belsen Landscape from 1957 have a dark claustrophobia in the vein of Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch. Considering that both the Mexican and Jewish populations came to Los Angeles to escape violenceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for Jews it was persecution in Eastern Europe, and for Mexicans (including Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own family) the danger caused by the Mexican revolutionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the subject of war isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprising. Later works, like Late Summer, a light-ďŹ lled watercolor painted in 2007, linger in the world of texture and space rather than human struggle. In another nod to European art, ) 26 Chavez writes in a

book complementing the new retrospective that it was an exhibit of Renoirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ&#x201A;ower paintings that he viewed as a young artist which opened his eyes to the mediumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possibilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helped me to see the potential of paint,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They seemed to be not pictures of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, but rather paint that was alive on the surface of the canvas that created patterns, patterns that conveyed the forms of the ďŹ&#x201A;owers to the eye. I wanted to make paintings that had that kind of magical energy.â&#x20AC;? In 1961, Chavez began to exhibit his work at the then-new Ceeje Gallery in Los Angeles. Located on La Cienega, the gallery specialized in the expressionist and dramatic work of ďŹ gurative painters, many known for pushing the margins in a city that was focused on abstract, streamlined art. Over the years, Chavez had both solo and group shows at the adventurous art space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was aware that we were an odd lot that started that gallery,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were also aware that there were different things going on elsewhere in the city.â&#x20AC;? From 1961 to 1970, the gallery offered an alternative to other Los Angeles galleries, which tended toward a rehash of the New York art scene, explains Chavez. The compulsion to be true to his own vision and creative impulse, without paying much, if any, attention to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercially successful, is a vein that continues to run through Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work even as he enters his eighth decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kind of art that I do and that I teach, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a big place for it in the world today,â&#x20AC;? he says, when asked what advice heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give young artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all commercial and celebrity, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all bullshit. Follow your heart and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look for rewards. Do it because you want to do it.â&#x20AC;?

Holiday Spotlight Rodents, circuses and ghosts for the season BY DAVID TEMPLETON

any local theater companies are serving up a spicy blend of holiday shows this season, from new twists on old classics to originals, some of which capture the holiday spirit of magic and wonder without actually being about the holidays.

On Thanksgiving weekend, two original shows open in Santa Rosa, both designed as audiencedazzling Events with a capital E. The Imaginists Theatre Collective presents â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Ratcatcher,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a world premiere musical featuring brand-new music written and performed by local roots band the Crux. Based on The Pied Piper of Hamlin, The Ratcatcher (Nov. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 16) mixes a fairy-

Stage

tale/town-hall-meeting vibe with that of an off-kilter cabaret show. Given the escalating reputation of the Imaginists as unpredictable creators of genre-defying works, and the local following enjoyed by the Crux, this should be quite an experience. The same can be said for Actors Basementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slightly wacky and innovative production of Merlyn Q. Sellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Circus Actsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 2). Set backstage in a ďŹ&#x201A;ea-bitten circus, the play is written as six distinct acts, each featuring different dysfunctional members of the troupe who deal with personal and professional crises. Alternately funny and bittersweet, the show will be performed at the Glaser Center in two separate performance spaces called â&#x20AC;&#x153;rings.â&#x20AC;? Audience members will choose whether to begin with ring one or ring two, changing their experience of the show as each ring gets the story in a slightly different order. The beloved Christmas fable â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Wonderful Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; materializes in two different versions. At Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marin Theatre Company, the story of poor beleaguered George Bailey and his guardian angel appears as a live â&#x20AC;&#x153;radio playâ&#x20AC;? in a bouncy adaptation by Joe Landry (Nov. 27â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 16). At Sixth Street Playhouse, George Bailey may still be depressed, but he sings his heart out in an original musical version (Nov. 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 23). Created by Marcy Telles, Craig A. Miller and Janis Dunson Wilson, the show features some truly catchy and heartwarming tunes, underscoring Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s path from despair to redemption. Out in Rio Nido, Pegasus Theater Company brings us a twist on another holiday classic. In â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jacob Marleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 23), written by Tom Mula, the familiar tale is retold from the point of view of poor shackled Marley, the onetime business partner (now dead as a doornail) of crotchety old Ebenezer Scrooge. Finally, though not technically a holiday tale, the Santa Rosa Junior College theater department presents Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suitably magical family musical â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beauty and the Beastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 8). It is, after all, the season for magic.

teven Spielberg’s Lincoln, by far the most intelligent of the director’s historical films, has as its backdrop the passing of the 13th Amendment. This otherwise first-rate film doesn’t quite make the circumstances clear; it doesn’t explain that the Emancipation Proclamation might have been considered a wartime emergency measure or that it could have been struck down after the war ended. But Tony Kushner’s wily script counters Spielberg’s instincts to Capra-ize this history. In Lincoln, portrayed with sterling wit and nobility by Daniel DayLewis, we have the reliable pleasure of watching a charismatic, covert man who won’t tell us what it is that’s dearest to him. Visible right from the beginning is not just an uncommon man, but a very strange one. And certainly an unhappy one. It’s a story of Lincoln as an outwardly serene manipulator; you can see the mask of the weary saint, herding lame-duck congressmen and using his agents to cajole, bribe and threaten. Lincoln observes the tension between a man haunted by four years of carnage, sleeplessness and grieving, with Sally Field as his proud, unbalanced wife. (She’s as weird as he is, really.) The film traffics in moments one didn’t know about, such as the irony of the location of Lincoln’s son Tad (Gulliver McGrath) when he heard the bad news about his father. Hal Holbrook lives large as the vast and elderly kingmaker Preston Blair, but he’s eclipsed by Tommy Lee Jones’ soon to be Oscarwinning Thaddeus Stephens. The performance involves an askew wig and a dog-headed cane (Jones keeps mulling over the carved head, like a jester gazing sadly at his coxcomb). He has grounds for biliousness: a stern radical courted by the milksop mainstreamers, he’s ultimately made to take one for the team. Lincoln is so bewilderingly good, it makes up for occasional, crowdpleasing banal points. And it overcomes the gulf of time, which makes it so hard for people of today to understand the most remarkable man this nation ever produced. ‘Lincoln’ opens in wide release on Friday, Nov. 16.

yesteryear, returns with Victims Family, Coffee & Donuts, the Louies, Edaline, Punch the Clown and others at the Phoenix Theater (Dec. 22), while over at the Last Day Saloon, California rock juggernaut Trapt ďŹ&#x201A;ow the juices and chime the power chords (Nov. 27). Members of the Grateful Dead are all over the December concert calendar, as Phil Lesh plays with Warren Haynes, John ScoďŹ eld and John Medeski (Nov. 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 2), and then with the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friendsâ&#x20AC;? quintet (Dec. 6â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 9) at his harbor venue Terrapin Crossroads. All shows are steep, but selling out, at $150. Likewise, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $125â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$175 to see Bob Weir and Jackie Greene at 142 Throckmorton (Dec. 6), but remember, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beneďŹ t. And Mickey Hart wins the former Dead egalitarian award, playing with his space-communicating band at the Uptown Theater for $35 (Nov. 29). National treasure John Prine plays the Wells Fargo Center (Dec. 5) while Iris Dement, heartache personiďŹ ed, returns to the Mystic Theatre (Nov. 29). Human power drill Dick Dale returns to the Mystic for the 536th time (Dec. 6), while newcomer J. D. McPherson rollicks through a week later (Dec. 11). In other Americana bookings, the Wells Fargo Center hosts Dwight Yoakam (Dec. 15), the Napa Valley Opera House has the Punch Brothers, featuring Nickel Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Thile (Nov. 29), the Uptown gives a victory lap to Glen Campbell (Nov. 30), 19 Broadway lights up with Tea Leaf Green (Dec. 21), and the Raven Theater fools around with Elvin Bishop (Nov. 24).

New Kingsolver novel takes on climate change In her long career as a novelist and nonfiction writer, Barbara Kingsolver has never turned her pen away from humanity’s dark turmoil. Her devastating and beautiful 1998 novel The Poisonwood Bible tells the story of a missionary family that moves from Georgia to the Belgian Congo. Like its ancestor, The Heart of Darkness, the book winds a tale around the emotional and psychological violence inherent when religious fervor knocks skulls with colonialism and its discontents. (It also contains one of the more horrific scenes involving a snake ever to be committed to the page.) Leon Trotsky, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera play major roles in the Virginia-based writer’s 2009 novel The Lacuna, a book that challenges expectations about how a narrator should be and how a story should be told. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, aka climate change’s debutante ball, Kingsolver’s latest book couldn’t be timelier. Set in Appalachia, Flight Behavior takes as its foundation the impact of global concerns on a rural community. Weather extremes, clearcutting, cyclical rural poverty and a forested valley alight “in a cold orange flame” all combine to make what promises to be one of the best books of 2012. Barbara Kingsolver appears on Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 7pm. $25; $45. 707.546.3600.—Leilani Clark

ARIES (March 21–April 19) In old Christian and Islamic lore, the dove was a symbol of the holy spirit. The bird was considered so pure and sacred that the devil, who was an expert shapeshifter, could not take on its form. The dove had a different meaning in other traditions, however. Among the ancient Greeks, it had a special relationship with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. In Rome, its eggs were regarded as aphrodisiacs. Drawing on all these meanings, I’m nominating the dove to be your power animal in the coming week. You will have an excellent chance to intensify your connection with divine truths through the power of love and eros—and vice versa. TAURUS (April 20–May 20) Your next assignment is to deepen and refine your relationship with your temptations. That doesn’t mean you should shed all caution and simply give in to them. Rather, I’m suggesting you escape the bind that makes you feel like you have to either ruthlessly repress your complicated longings or else thoroughly express them. Is there an in-between position you can find? A way you can appreciate the mysterious gift that the temptations confer and not be miserably obsessed by them? A perspective in which you’re neither tormented by guilt nor driven to compromise your integrity?

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) You’re a bit like a professional jet pilot who is operating the pirate ship ride at an amusement park. You have resemblances to a top chef who’s shopping for gourmet ingredients in a seedy convenience store. In other words, Gemini, you may feel slightly off-kilter or dispossessed, even though you have a lot going for you. Here’s the best possible thing you could do while you wait for the fates to show you how to make a correction: Make it your intention to feel centered, poised and at peace exactly as you are right now. CANCER (June 21–July 22)

Contrary to conventional wisdom, there is currently enough food available to feed everyone on the planet. The problem is, it’s not distributed efficiently. Some people get far more food than they need, and even waste a lot of it, while less fortunate folks go hungry. I invite you to think about whether you might have a metaphorically comparable situation in your own life, Cancerian. Is there a part of your psyche that’s well-nurtured but a different part that receives meager shares of love and support? Are you overstuffed in one way but starved in another? The coming weeks would be an excellent time to correct such an imbalance. (More on food: tinyurl. com/HungryWorld.)

LEO (July 23–August 22) This horoscope is not an advertisement for ceremonial shovels. I am receiving no payment from a ceremonial shovel company for suggesting that you procure a customized engraved gold digging tool for your own personal use. And I will feel fine if you don’t actually get a real one, but instead merely imagine yourself wielding a pretend version. The fact is, Leo, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do a groundbreaking ritual: to dig up the first scoop of metaphorical dirt in the place where you will build your future dream house, masterpiece or labor of love.

VIRGO (August 23–September 22)

I don’t think you’re fully aware of the game you’ve been immersed in. You may even be in denial that you’re playing it. If I’m right about this, please make it a priority to acknowledge what’s going on and identify the exact nature of the game. You can’t afford to be innocent about the subterranean forces that are in motion. It’s especially important not to be too nice and polite to see the complicated truth. Please note: there’s no need to be a cynical shark—that would be as inappropriate a response as being a sweet little lamb. But you should definitely activate your jungle senses.

LIBRA (September 23–October 22) On Reddit. com, someone asked members of the community the following: What is your best unanswerable question? Among the more serious offerings were “What is love?”, “What is magic?”, “Why is there something as opposed to nothing?” and “What is the meaning of life?” Then there were more avant-garde possibilities:

“Where do squirrels go during hurricanes?”, “Could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that he himself could not eat it?” and “If I asked you to sleep with me, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?” After evaluating the current astrological omens, Libra, I urge you to pose your own best riddle—a query that will provide maximum stimulation as you meditate on it during the next four months.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

An environmental organization in New Zealand found that the local fishing industry wastes about 70 percent of its haul. In contrast, Iceland manages to use 96 percent of every fish caught. For example, New Zealand companies throw away most of the liver, roe and heads of the fish, while Iceland has come up with ways to take advantage of all that stuff. Judging from your current astrological omens, Scorpio, I conclude that it’s crucial for you to take your cue from Iceland rather than New Zealand in the coming weeks. Be inventive, efficient and thorough in harnessing the power of all your raw materials.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) “They will say you are on the wrong road,” said poet Antonio Porchia, “if it is your own.” I suspect you may have to deal with wrong-headed badgering like that in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. In fact, you could experience a surge of discouraging words and bad advice that tries to shoo you away from the path with heart. Some of the push may come from enemies, some from friends or loved ones and some from deluded little voices in your own head. I hope you won’t be demoralized by the onslaught but will instead respond like a brave hero who uses adversity as a motivating force. CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) I’m sure you’ve got thousands of practical details to attend to. Your schedule may be as busy as it has been in months. But I hope you will find time to do what I consider essential to your well-being, and that is to wander and wonder. In fact, let’s make that your motto: to wander and wonder. Even if it’s just for a few stolen moments between your serious appointments, allow yourself to meander off into the unknown and marvel at all the curious things you find. Be on the lookout for high strangeness that thrills your imagination, for exotic pleasures that titillate your lust for novelty and for fertile chaos that blows your mind in all the right ways. AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) James Joyce was a great novelist but not much of a fighter. He picked a more imposing and athletic buddy to go drinking with, though: Ernest Hemingway. If the two men encountered any alcohol-induced trouble, Joyce would slink behind his friend and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway, deal with him!” I don’t anticipate that you’ll be in the vicinity of any bar scuffles in the coming week, Aquarius. But I do think you would benefit from having a potent and persuasive ally on your side. It’s time to add some heft and clout to your arsenal of resources. PISCES (February 19–March 20) Is it possible that you have been too receptive and empathetic for your own good lately? I mean, I love how attuned you are to the ebb and flow of subtle energies—it’s one of your most winsome and powerful qualities—but I fear you may be going too far. As heroic as it might seem to be the most sensitive and responsive person in a 10-mile radius, I’d rather see you work on being more self-contained right now. That’s why, for a limited time only, I’m recommending that you turn the full force of your touchy-feely solicitude on yourself.
