OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE After reading this week’s cover story, GT’s managing editor Maria Grusauskas texted me this about Patti Maxine: “There are so few female lap steel guitarists that I actually can’t find many living. I’m sure there are, but when you google players, it’s almost entirely men in the results. It just makes her that much cooler that she’s been in such a male-dominated space.” I love this observation, and I also kind of love the fact that it doesn’t even come up in Aaron Carnes’ cover story about Maxine this week. She’s such a force unto herself, such a widely recognized treasure of the local music scene, that it seems strange to talk about her in the context

of anything but her own unique personality, presence and talent. And yet, it’s worth noting that as a lap steel player whose popularity seems to only be increasing in her 70s, she is defying a lot of music norms, not only in terms of gender, but also the age bias that so many women in music have spoken out about. One other note: after Carnes wrote this story (and after our photographer Keana Parker took the photos for it), Maxine cut her famously striking hair. It is, however, no less striking. Also this week, we got an interesting inquiry from Boulder Creek’s Jim Balkanloo, who’s kicking off an ultra-grassroots campaign called #NoAmazonAugust in an attempt to get everyone thinking about shopping local. Can you go without Prime for a month? Read the story in our news section, and let us know what you think of this antiAmazon push.

Re: “Current Location” (GT, 7/25 ): If the goal of the article on Keri Waters and Buoy was to show how tech startups are taking root in Santa Cruz, then bravo, the article hit its point. But what I didn’t get were any specifics about the value this company adds; it feels like another random “what if … ?” tech startup with little real-world added value. The Santa Cruz Water District should be monitoring water usage and giving good options to limit our local consumption as well as rectifying leaks. I’m not sure about the incentive for paying $205.88 a year (+ a minimum $299 installation fee) to monitor my water by smart phone, when I can get a monthly total usage from municipal utilities. I note also that “personally” taking “an interest in related data privacy and security groups” does not mean your data won’t be for sale on the digital marketplace—data that, to my knowledge, isn’t regularly sold by our SCWD.

a wonderful picture of a happy dog above five facts about the park. Unfortunately, only two of those facts are correct. Yes, there are nine off-leash dog areas in Santa Cruz, but no, there is no oceanside view of the harbor from the dog park. It’s close by and easy to reach, but is separate and not visible. The water fountains onsite might be distinguished by a single spigot. Fountains (plural), no. I would also think twice about human consumption. There are three or four buckets that usually get filled on a frequent or not basis that give the dogs their hydration. The area is fenced in and is safe for the dogs. Lastly, don’t forget your poop bag! Usually the boxes containing bags are empty because too many people forget their poop bags! That results in too much poop not being picked up at the dog park. That’s a common element that is not so widely advertised. —XPRO

The 12th Annual Breastfeeding Health Fair and Walk is happening at 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 10. The rally will include family activities, a live DJ, community resource booths, healthy snacks, raffles, and free T-shirts. The walk starts at 5 p.m. In hosting the event, Community Bridges Women, Infants & Children (WIC) aims to build support for breastfeeding in the community. WIC wants to establish breastfeeding as normal and preferred.

Sunday, July 29 marked the dedication of the John Keith Solar System at the Resource Center for Nonviolence (RCNV). Locals gathered for a celebration of Keith, a former photographer for the Independent who also helped start the monthly Phoenix newspaper. Keith, a solar activist and innovator, died of Alzheimer’s at age 66. More than 120 people donated to the solar fund, with several pitching in to help with installations as well.

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of August 1 ARIES Mar21–Apr19 I predict that August will be a Golden Age for you. That’s mostly very good. Golden opportunities will arise, and you’ll come into possession of lead that can be transmuted into gold. But it’s also important to be prudent about your dealings with gold. Consider the fable of the golden goose. The bird’s owner grew impatient because it laid only one gold egg per day; he foolishly slaughtered his prize animal to get all the gold immediately. That didn’t work out well. Or consider the fact that to the ancient Aztecs, the word teocuitlatl referred to gold, even though its literally translation was “excrement of the gods.” Moral of the story: If handled with care and integrity, gold can be a blessing.

TAURUS Apr20–May20 Taurus socialite Stephen Tennant (1906-1987) was such an interesting luminary that three major novelists created fictional characters modeled after him. As a boy, when he was asked what he’d like to be when he grew up, he replied, “I want to be a great beauty.” I’d love to hear those words spill out of your mouth, Taurus. What? You say you’re already all grown up? I doubt it. In my opinion, you’ve still got a lot of stretching and expansion and transformation to accomplish during the coming decades. So yes: I hope you can find it in your wild heart to proclaim, “When I grow up, I want to be a great beauty.” (P.S. Your ability to become increasingly beautiful will be at a peak during the next fourteen months.)

GEMINI May21–June20 “Manage with bread and butter until God sends the honey,” advises a Moroccan proverb. Let’s analyze how this advice might apply to you. First thing I want to know is, have you been managing well with bread and butter? Have you refrained from whining about your simple provisions, resting content and grateful? If you haven’t, I doubt that any honey will arrive, ether from God or any other source. But if you have been celebrating your modest gifts, feeling free of greed and displeasure, then I expect at least some honey will show up soon.

AUGUST 1-7, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

CANCER Jun21–Jul22

massages, nine hours of sleep per night, and a steady stream of soulful conversations? No. Not really. In the coming days, life will be a good ride for you even if you fail to procure those indulgences. But here are further questions and answers: Do you deserve the orchids, elixirs, and the rest? My answer is yes, definitely. And would the arrival of these delights spur you to come up with imaginative solutions to your top two riddles? I’m pretty sure it would. So I conclude this horoscope by recommending that you do indeed arrange to revel in your equivalent of the delights I named.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 “Don’t try to steer the river,” writes Deepak Chopra. Most of the time, I agree with that idea. It’s arrogant to think that we have the power to control the forces of nature or the flow of destiny or the song of creation. Our goal should be to get an intuitive read on the crazy-making miracle of life, and adapt ourselves ingeniously to its ever-shifting patterns and rhythms. But wait! Set aside everything I just said. An exception to the usual rule has arrived. Sometimes, when your personal power is extra flexible and robust—like now, for you—you may indeed be able to steer the river a bit.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 “Dear Astrologer: Recently I’ve been weirdly obsessed with wondering how to increase my levels of generosity and compassion. Not just because I know it’s the right thing to do, but also because I know it will make me healthy and honest and unflappable. Do you have any sage advice? -Ambitious Sagittarius.” Dear Ambitious: I’ve noticed that many Sagittarians are feeling an unprecedented curiosity about how to enhance their lives by boosting the benevolence they express. Here’s a tip from astrologer Chani Nicholas: “Source your sense of self from your integrity in every interaction.” Here’s another tip from Anais Nin: “The worse the state of the world grows, the more intensely I try for inner perfection and power. I fight for a small world of humanity and tenderness.”

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19

Don’t worry your beautiful head about praying to the gods of luck and fate. I’ll take care of that for you. Your job is to propitiate the gods of fluid discipline and hard but smart work. To win the favor of these divine helpers, act on the assumption that you now have the power and the right to ask for more of their assistance than you have before. Proceed with the understanding that they are willing to provide you with the stamina, persistence, and attention to detail you will need to accomplish your next breakthrough.

Time does not necessarily heal all wounds. If you wait around passively, hoping that the mere passage of months will magically fix your twists and smooth out your tweaks, you’re shirking your responsibility. The truth is, you need to be fully engaged in the process. You’ve got to feel deeply and think hard about how to diminish your pain, and then take practical action when your wisdom shows you what will actually work. Now is an excellent time to upgrade your commitment to this sacred quest.

LE0 Jul23–Aug22

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18

“Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present at all.” A character named Julia says that in Evelyn Waugh’s novel Brideshead Revisited. I bring it to your attention as an inspiring irritant, as a prod to get you motivated. I hope it will mobilize you to rise up and refuse to allow your past and your future to press so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present. It’s a favorable time for you to fully claim the glory of being right here, right now.

The questions you’ve been asking aren’t bad or wrong. But they’re not exactly relevant or helpful, either. That’s why the answers you’ve been receiving aren’t of maximum use. Try these questions instead. 1. What experience or information would you need to heal your divided sense of loyalty? 2. How can you attract an influence that would motivate you to make changes you can’t quite accomplish under your own power? 3. Can you ignore or even dismiss the 95 percent of your fear that’s imaginary so you’ll be able to focus on the five percent that’s truly worth meditating on? 4. If I assured you that you have the intelligence to beautify an ugly part of your world, how would you begin?

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 I’m not an ascetic who believes all our valuable lessons emerge from suffering. Nor am I a pop-nihilist who sneers at pretty flowers, smiling children, and sunny days. On the contrary: I’m devoted to the hypothesis that life is usually at least 51 percent wonderful. But I dance the rain dance when there’s an emotional drought in my personal life, and I dance the pain dance when it’s time to deal with difficulties I’ve ignored. How about you, Virgo? I suspect that now is one of those times when you need to have compassionate heart-to-heart conversations with your fears, struggles, and aches.

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22 Do you absolutely need orchids, sweet elixirs, dark chocolate, alluring new music, dances on soft grass, sensual

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 A scuffle you’ve been waging turns out to be the wrong scuffle. It has distracted you from giving your full attention to a more winnable and worthwhile tussle. My advice? Don’t waste energy feeling remorse about the energy you’ve wasted. In fact, be grateful for the training you’ve received. The skills you’ve been honing while wrestling with the misleading complication will serve you well when you switch your focus to the more important issue. So are you ready to shift gears? Start mobilizing your crusade to engage with the more winnable and worthwhile tussle.

WELLNESS

EVERYTHING IS SPINE Science is increasingly able to quantify the importance of good posture.

Body Talk How a sea change in posture can change your world BY HUGH MCCORMICK high EQ make $29,000 more annually than their lower-EQ counterparts. These are folks who are keenly aware of the role that unspoken signals have in communication. Over the last few weeks, I’ve embarked on an ambitious quest for body language redemption, and have decided to become vigilant in monitoring and improving how I move through the world. As the CEO of 6seconds.org, a sort of next-gen online finishing school devoted to the development of emotional intelligence, 52-yearold Josh Freedman of Corralitos has spent more than two decades researching EQ and instructing others on the power of nonverbal

communication, including a bevy of Fortune 500 firms like FedEX, Siemens, Lenovo, and even the Navy. “Body language is one of the great ways of communicating what’s really going on inside of us,” Freedman says. “We are interpreting constantly. And we communicate a multitude of emotional messages with our body language.” For instance, successful people tend to lean in to conversations, tilting their heads ever-so-slightly to signal engagement, comfort, trust, and interest. According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, the award-winning author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, leaning in shows the person speaking they have your complete

very time I visit my debutante mother, she yanks at my neck and tells me “shoulders back, stand up straight.” This is sort of embarrassing for a 36 year old. And posture isn’t the only problem with my nonverbal communication skills—being able to read social cues and respond appropriately with my own body language, also known as emotional intelligence (EQ), is something I just never had. But for those who struggle with the same issues, it may be in our best interest to pick up some skills: A recent study conducted by TalentSmart (with more than 1 million participants) found that people with

attention and focus. Posture is key. (Thanks, mom). Until recently, I had no clue that poor posture can read as a sign of disrespect, signaling boredom. Maintaining proper posture is a conscious choice—one that promotes engagement and respect from both ends of a conversation. Standing up straight with your shoulders back is the ultimate power position, according to Bradberry. Because the brain equates power with the amount of space you take up, slouching, which compresses your form, projects weakness, insecurity and discomfort. As the so-called windows to your soul, the eyes can be an important power (or weakness) in nonverbal communication. Sustained eye contact communicates confidence, power, leadership, and intelligence, while avoiding eye contact communicates a lack of interest, or worse, that you’re not being trustworthy. Bradberry recommends keeping a deep and level gaze while making an important or complicated point, and definitely not to look down. Most people hold eye contact longer when they’re listening than when they’re talking, and seven to 10 seconds is the average recommended length of eye contact, says Bradberry. I am not sure how one can really keep track of this without counting one-Mississippis in their head (distracting), but eye contact any longer than this can be perceived as aggressive or domineering. Breaking eye contact by looking to the side shows confidence while looking down signals submission. Luckily, emotional intelligence and body language experts agree that these are things that can be learned and improved with practice. I’ve spent the past two weeks trying to reverse decades of body language blunders. It’s been slow going, and I often find myself slipping into my old, slumped ways—but finding myself there sets off a chain reaction: chin up, shoulders back, tall spine, float the head up. And here’s how I know that transforming the way I’m perceived in the world is entirely possible: Even my mom has cast an eyebrow raise of approval.

NEWS WELL RECEIVED Soquel Creek Water District’s draft EIR is out on recycled water, as regional talks continue

AUGUST 1-7, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

BY JACOB PIERCE

12

Bruce Daniels, board chair for the Soquel Creek Water District, remembers feeling “very surprised” five years ago this month. That’s when he got a late-night heads-up about a big change afoot in regional water planning. The next day, on the morning of Aug. 19, 2013, then-Mayor Hilary Bryant and City Manager Martín Bernal jointly announced their intention to pull the plug on a planned desalination facility—one on which the city had collaborated with Soquel Creek Water District—for more than a decade. This, of course, was not about pulling one over on the over-stressed mid-county water district or its drying groundwater basin underneath. There were real environmental and political questions about the proposed desal plant, a facility likely slated for Santa Cruz’s Westside, and whether or not it could have passed on the ballot the following year, given the growing swell of opposition from the activist group Desal Alternatives. Still, the decision left the two districts in very different places. Santa Cruz has significant water shortage issues, to be sure—namely a small reservoir and the demands of increased water flows for fish habitat during the dry seasons. But due south, the problems are more immediate for the city’s neighbors. The Soquel Creek district’s over-stressed Purisima Aquifer faces threats of creeping seawater intrusion. City water customers, on the other hand barely rely on groundwater. Daniels was acutely aware of the district’s quickly dwindling resources. “The biggest thing was we lost time,” Daniels says. “The big difference between us and them is that the city can have this terrible drought and try to get people to reduce water, but once it passes and it rains again, everyone’s OK. Over here, if we have a problem, we get saltwater intrusion, and the wells are ruined. We have a risky situation that the city just doesn’t have.” For Soquel Creek’s next chapter, Daniels says that district leaders can’t wait around for anyone else, and so as they plot their way out of a water crisis, they’re doing it with the assumption that they can’t fully trust anyone but themselves. >16

tree and careening over a nearby hill. Paramedics pronounced her and Hunsperger dead on the scene. Her best friend and another man in the car survived with treatable injuries. Though the crash remains under investigation, the coroner’s toxicology report showed that he had 11 nanograms of delta-9tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in his system. Had Hunsperger been driving in Colorado, that would have put him over twice the legal limit for that particular cannabinoid, perhaps the drug’s most common and also most psychoactive ingredient. What should not be overlooked is that lab results also showed that Hunsperger died with more than twice the legal limit

for alcohol in his bloodstream as well. When pot became fully legal for recreational use in California at the beginning of the year, law firms and law enforcement stepped up warnings about stoned driving. Signs like “Drive High, Get a DUI” along freeways warned about the consequences of getting busted behind the wheel while under the influence. But unlike Colorado, California does not yet have a definite maximum THC level, so policing marijuana-induced driving under the influence (DUI) charges has proved challenging. “It is the officer’s interpretation of the situation based on their training to determine whether a >14

NEWS HIGH WAY PATROL <12 person is too intoxicated to drive,” says Santa Cruz County California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesperson Trista Drake. “Hopefully, we will have something like Colorado. We have been slow to catch up so far.” Officer training, Drake says, includes programs on both enforcement of impaired driving and recognizing various substances, each of which includes identifying if someone is high. And the state legislature will soon fund a UC San Diego study to look at the effects of cannabis on driving. One of the problems with using THC to draw a hard line, however, is that cannabis affects different users differently. Medical cannabis patients,

for example, may have a tolerance that is far beyond that of recreational users—and not be impaired regardless of how much THC is built up in their bloodstream, where it can remain for weeks after use. In general, Sorrentino says she’s concerned that, absent a standard for intoxication, the legal penalties for driving while stoned will fail to reflect the seriousness of the crime. “We want justice served,” Sorrentino says. “We want justice for Isabelle.” Because it’s still early in weed’s post-prohibition era, regional law enforcement officials have been unable to confirm to what extent such fears are warranted. CHP’s San Jose branch has been tracking the number of marijuana-related DUIs, but the office has yet to draw any

conclusions about whether stoned driving has gone up there. While DUI related arrests in Santa Cruz County are on the rise, compared to last year (with a total of 615 for the first six months), Drake says incidents of cannabis-specific DUIs in Santa Cruz County haven’t increased. Local cannabis attorney Ben Rice isn’t surprised by that fact, adding that cannabis-specific DUIs are “pretty darn rare” in his experience. “Cannabis is so different from alcohol. Users are more relaxed, and they mostly become more careful, and it makes them slow down, not speed up,” says Rice, who doesn’t think law enforcement should test for THC, because he doesn’t think there’s a cutand-dry catchall threshold that would work for everyone. >18

NEWS BRIEFS CART CHOICES When Boulder Creek’s Jim Balkanloo was growing up in Ohio, there was no question who the bad guy was in the world of big business. It was Walmart, the big box store eating up entire city blocks of retail. Walmart undercut the prices of local community stores, and underpaid its workers. Balkanloo, 36, will be the first to admit that Walmart hasn’t changed, per se. He argues, though, that the world around it has. Balkanloo will go so far as to say that, in the year 2018, with the rise of amazon. com, Walmart isn’t looking nearly as bad—at least locals have historically been able to secure steady jobs there that are down the street from their homes—with maybe even some healthcare in the deal. When it comes to Amazon, those jobs aren’t available in most communities, Balkanloo says. The openings may be at a depot in Arizona, or somewhere in Washington state. “It’s an odd world we live in, where shopping at Walmart

is the morally and ethically superior choice to amazon. com,” muses Balkanloo, who commutes to a job in Soquel. “It’s just where we’re at right now,” explains Balkanloo, who prioritizes shopping at businesses that are actually locally owned. He feels something must be done. His big idea: What if everyone decided not to shop on Amazon for the whole month of August? And that’s how Balkanloo came up with the slogan #NoAmazonAugust. But getting any momentum for it may be easier said than done. Balkanloo has begun to realize that his biggest challenge is that he isn’t on social media. He admits that he isn’t even sure how hashtags work, even though he jokingly throws them into text messages with his friends. To get the word out about his new campaign, Balkanloo has emailed more than a hundred people in the past week—newspaper reporters, editors, podcasters, elected officials, social justice advocates, economic analysts. He even halffacetiously hand-wrote a letter to

President Donald Trump and dropped it in the mail. He figures that if he can just get one or two semi-big celebrities to join in the cause on Gonzalez or Facebook, that could start enough of a snowball effect to convince a few big-time investors to sell off a few Amazon shares, maybe enough so that their stocks take a dip on Wall Street. His dream scenario would be that the company, which is lead by the richest man in the modern era, would even see a net loss for the month of August. That would be no small task, given that the company has recently reported profits 12 times greater than a year prior, according to the Seattle Times‘ Mike Rosenberg, and it’s now raking in $1.1 million per hour. But Balkanloo is taking things one step at a time. “All you’ve got to do is just not buy from amazon. com for a month. It’s really not that hard,” he says. Instead, make the effort to purchase the things you need in person, Balkanloo says, preferably at local stores in Santa Cruz County. It seems like every month for the past 10 years, someone in

America someone has tried to mount a nationwide gas boycott, and it never goes anywhere. The problem with the approach—as any economic expert will readily point out—is that simply going one day without buying gas will never have any impact on big oil, because customers will no doubt end up buying their fuel from the same gas stations either before the protest or in the days after. The point is that, in order to make a big difference and cause pain to a major industry, people have to actually change their buying habits. In the case of Amazon, that means shopping elsewhere. Taking the month off from the online retailer may be one part of the equation, but shopping there less often would be the more important step. Balkanloo’s pitch is that when one of his soon-to-be fellow protesters gets an itching to buy something from Amazon, they can still check out the reviews and study items online, but, when they’re ready to purchase, they should buy the goods from a local vendor instead.

RINSE REPEAT A Santa Cruz public works employee hoses off a catwalk at the Santa Cruz Wastewater Treatment Facility, where Pure Water Soquel

would get treated water and then purify it further.

AUGUST 1-7, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

WELL RECEIVED <12

That next chapter is now being written, and a new project could be underway in the coming years. The chosen project’s name is Pure Water Soquel, and the draft environmental impact report [EIR] is currently out, with comments due Aug. 13. Pure Water Soquel would involve treating and purifying local wastewater, but not for a “toilet to tap” project, where purified water goes right back into the drinking supply. (That would be direct potable reuse, which no California water district has yet implemented, although it’s likely only a matter of time before it starts happening in the drought-prone Golden State.) This local undertaking would instead use indirect potable reuse (IPR), which involves pumping highly treated recycled water into the ground—in this case, the Purisima— via injection wells. The additional supply prevents seawater intrusion, rests local

wells and augments water levels, which ultimately get pumped back out for use. The practice of IPR is already in place in six California water districts, and others are moving forward with their own projects, including one on the Monterey Peninsula called Pure Water Monterey. The product is generally well received. A recent study out of UC Riverside found that customers preferred IPR water to ordinary run-of-the-mill tap water, putting it basically on par with bottled water. Pure Water Soquel’s EIR has yet to make a huge splash. The considerations in it were mostly minor, with the biggest impacts being noise from construction and drilling, which were both deemed “significant and unavoidable.” Daniels says customers are ready for the board to do something. “They want something timely. They are tired—and I’m glad they are—of sitting around, talking about it and doing studies,” he says. Soquel Creek Water District is keeping

other water options on the table, too, including the option of buying desalinated water from Moss Landing’s yet-to-beapproved DeepWater Desal plant, although that’s generally seen as a long shot. There’s also the possibility of excess river water transfers from Santa Cruz to Soquel Creek’s wells or to its customers directly— something city staffers have been exploring and studying. That partnership is the city’s number one preferred water supply option. During dry summers, Santa Cruz would, in theory, be able to eventually pump out water and get some back. A chemistry test ordered by the Santa Cruz Water Board recently explored the possibility of pumping Santa Cruz water through Soquel Creek Water District’s pipes. Santa Cruz Water Director Rosemary Menard says it was a big enough success that the agencies could start sharing flows as early as this winter. If water swaps don’t work, Santa Cruz

may pursue a recycled water project of its own. If the Pure Water Soquel project happens, however, that would leave less water for the city of Santa Cruz to work with. Per the Water Supply Advisory Committee’s recommendations, the project of last resort would be desal. In the spirit looking at regional solutions, the Mid-County Groundwater Agency— made up of local elected and water board members—has been meeting for more than two years at Simpkins Family Swim Center. The group gathers every other month to talk about projects, how to share the basin and general collaboration. These multi-agency groups are mandated by a 2014 state law, but the mid-county group is further along than most, given the severity of the Purisima’s overdraft issues. After all, it’s never too late to work together—at least while there’s still water in the ground.

Rice adds that although CHP officers will arrest someone they believe is under the influence of cannabis, there’s often little the district attorney can do to prosecute such cases, since studies have yet to conclusively prove how to measure impairment. Although federal research has shown that while smoking before driving does elevate the risk of crashing, it’s less impairing than alcohol. Anyone using both substances at the same time, though, can end up far more impaired than someone using either drug on its own. While the American Journal of Public Health published a study last summer reporting that the states of Colorado and Washington saw no increase in fatal crashes after legalization, a separate study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that collisions went up 3 percent. The Washington Post called it “plausible that legalization could lead to a slight increase in minor accidents that don’t prove fatal.” According to a Denver Post analysis last year, however, data from Colorado showed an increase in fatalities where the driver tested positive for recent cannabis use, with the rate more than doubling annually between 2013 and 2016. In San Jose, the crash that killed Gonzalez wasn’t Hunsperger’s first drug offense. Court records show he had both drug- and driving-related infractions to his name. In April 2016, police pulled him over for participating in a speed contest. An officer found cocaine, pot and drug paraphernalia in his car. A judge gave him two years’ probation and suspended his license for one year—but he violated the terms of his sentence by getting behind the wheel again in 2017. Hunsperger also entered a deferred entry judgement, a program for drug offenders that offers counseling or substance-use education in exchange for the chance to expunge their record. Gonzalez’s loved ones say the system that tried to save Hunsperger failed their family. “She was underage, she was a little girl,” her aunt, Vivian Chavez, says. “That guy had no business drinking.

Patti Maxine is a local legend as a lap steel accompanist—but most people haven’t seen the depth of her talent BY AARON CARNES


I

t’s Sept. 13, 2013, at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center. Patti Maxine stands behind her lap steel guitar with her longflowing silver hair tied back into a ponytail, and her plain white buttonup shirt adorned with a single Hawaiian lei. It’s her 75th birthday, and she is surrounded by several of her close musician friends on stage, and a sold-out crowd. She’s as calm and cool as always, but underneath her striking locks is the glint of a smile.

After a brief, softly spoken intro, she and her band go into a lively country, bluesy version of Brenda Lee’s 1959 rock ’n’ roll classic “Sweet Nothin’s.” You can almost hear the shock in the crowd when she starts singing—it’s like she’s channeling the classic juke-joint blues greats. She fills most of the songs with licks from her lap steel guitar, an instrument she’s played since she was a 14-year-old kid living in the mountains of southwestern Virginia. Before she was old enough

to vote, she’d developed a knack for making it sing like an angel with almost no effort. Maxine moved to California in the early ’70s, eventually settling later in the decade in Santa Cruz, where she became the local go-to lap steel guitarist. In all this time, she’s played the lap steel (and occasionally guitar) in roughly 10 bands and has accompanied more singer-songwriters and bands than she can even recall. This night is different. She’s not

accompaniment, not off-to-the side providing flawless, rehearsal-free lap steel sliding notes. She’s at center stage, with the other musicians there to accompany her. It’s Patti Maxine’s name on the marquee, a rare treat for folks in Santa Cruz. She plays nearly three hours of music, a range of songs spanning old country hits to Hawaiian tunes to jazz standards to Western swing classics. She sings, plays the guitar, and of course plays plenty of the lap steel guitar. Her steel 22>

solos are particularly intoxicating. For Duke Ellington’s “Caravan,” she may as well have attached the strings to her heart—rarely does a solo move an audience like this. Even on her 75th birthday, she doesn’t hog the spotlight; several other players get a solo during “Caravan.” And for “Bird in a House,” written by semi-recent bluegrass band Railroad Earth, local guitarist Rhan Wilson sings lead, with Maxine and longtime local musician Pipa Piñon singing harmonies. Maxine’s lap steel solo adds a trippy element that can best be described as the aural equivalent of floating through space. So why does this have to be so rare? Why doesn’t a musician as well-known, respected and loved locally as Maxine play more shows as a headliner? “It feels a little overwhelming to me. People are paying to hear you, and you’re supposed to have this big show going on,” she says, then gives the question some more thought. “It’s a lot of love coming at you. It’s just beautiful. I try to make sure I keep that in check. Not let it go to my head or something.”

IN DEMAND Maxine certainly doesn’t seem overwhelmed on stage, and after six decades in music, maybe she deserves to let it go to her head once in a while. But for someone with such a deep resume, she’s remarkably humble. When I interviewed her, she downplayed a lot of her accomplishments, and even the notion that among local musicians,

she’s a bit of an icon. However, Maxine’s longtime partner Marilyn Marzell also sat in on the interview and was more than happy to set the record straight. For instance, Marzell told me that a young man who recently jammed with Maxine said that doing so was an item on his bucket list. Maxine then said she had no idea it was that important to him. “She’s very humble,” says Marzell. “But Patti is in demand. People know Patti.” Maxine’s talents have been long recognized, but even more so recently. Locally, there’s been a shift toward traditional forms of country music, and bands like Miss Lonely Hearts and the Carolyn Sills Combo have risen to the top of the scene. Sills’ group plays Western swing, and she greatly admires Maxine. She tells me that when she and her husband moved to Santa Cruz eight years ago, they were mainly playing to folks in their 50s and 60s. Now there are a lot of younger people coming out to their shows. “It seemed the younger folks were more into bluegrass and faster punkcountry,” Sills says. “Bars are now doing country nights. People are coming out. I’m sure Patti’s noticed. I feel like she has this younger cult following, and it’s rightfully deserved. She’s such a badass lady. She’s done such cool stuff over the years.” Maxine has also been recognized in recent years for her amazing work playing the lap steel guitar for Hawaiian music. In 2015, she was invited to the Maui Steel Guitar Festival in Hawaii, where she was

Maxine recalls singing whenever she had the chance as a young child. It was one of the few trouble-free ways she and her family were able to connect. The lap steel guitar became her instrument of choice almost by chance. At 14, she went to take guitar lessons at a local music school, and the teacher, Elmer Ridenhour, talked her into studying the lap steel instead since he was low on students. The lap steel is a guitar that’s played horizontally, with a metal slide. It’s most associated with the classic breezy Hawaiian music and the twangy sound of traditional country, honkytonk and Western swing. The tuning is different than a standard guitar, and the strings are not pressed to a fret, which gives the guitar its dreamy, sliding sound. Maxine took to the instrument right away. “I loved it. It was very natural. I just fell into it and really loved it,” she says. “The teacher was a really good teacher. What he told me was you need to listen for a while and

then start playing. He was so easy, non-judgmental. Really supportive. He’s like a father figure.” He also got Maxine her first batch of gigs—only six weeks after her first lesson—which she did mostly as a duo with him at Elks Clubs and firemen’s halls. The lessons continued for five years, by which point she was an in-demand player. She landed a spot in Virginia country band Doug Wilson and the Trail Dusters, who even had their own local TV show. As incredible as the experience was, it lacked something critical for Maxine. “It’s really different being on TV,” she says. “It’s like playing for no audience. There’s nobody there. Just camera staring at you. Not my favorite. I like the feedback of people.” Maxine landed in California in 1970, after a bartender in her hometown of Roanoke invited her to join him on his trip to one of the ski resorts in Lake Tahoe. Once out here, she gigged anywhere she could. She hopped around from town to town for a while, but it was Santa Cruz that really spoke to her. She first checked it out because people were talking about a jam rock band that played here, frequently called Sons of Champlin, though she never did get a chance to see them. By 1978, she had made Santa Cruz her home. “When I drove into Santa Cruz, it’s when they closed Pacific Avenue and had a spring fair. I drove in and saw that people were dancing in the streets, just having a great time,” Maxine says. “To me that was really different from what my life was like in Virginia.” On the West Coast, Maxine gained a reputation in no time.

STEEL LIFE

“When Hawaiian musicians come to town, they know to call ‘the lap steel player.’ She’s known in that community. Everybody knows Patti, because she’s everywhere. She’s always playing. She doesn’t need rehearsals most of the time.” - MARILYN MARZELL <25 was leaving Eugene, Oregon to come down to Santa Cruz in 1979 to form a dance theater company, some of her friends told her to look up this amazing musician everyone was talking about down there named Patti Maxine. Not much has changed, Marzell says. “When Patti and I are walking around, it’s like being with a celebrity. People are really moved by their experience of listening to her music. I stand back and watch her receive it very graciously,” she says. One of Maxine’s closest friends is singer-songwriter Piñon, who also came to Santa Cruz in the late ’70s, and currently lives in New Mexico. She recalls the first time she saw Maxine performing at a coffee shop in town—just her and her guitar on a stool under a red spotlight. “Patti can really move you with her music. She really gets into the song. I was just in awe of her,” Piñon says. “She can bring her lap steel in and play any type of style; country to jazz to avant-garde to rock to country-swing. She’s a musician through and through. She’s genuine and she’s been that way her whole life.” Throughout the ’80s, Piñon and Maxine also did a lot of theater. They would write music, perform, and Maxine would act. Maxine also showed off her acting chops in the Altared Christmas production written and put together by local musician Rhan Wilson. In one song, Maxine sings a dark, reflective version of “I

Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.” She plays up the odd vibe with deadbeat perfection, making it a hilarious rendition of the normally goofy, upbeat song. Maxine’s talents are diverse, but she most often plays in someone else’s band, or adds something to the work of a singer-songwriter. As in-demand as she is, she’s very generous with her time. Chances are, if she has the date free, she’ll say yes to nearly anyone that asks her to play with them. “It doesn’t matter so much what the level of musicianship is,” Marzell says. “She’ll play with people who are just coming out as musicians and people that have been around for a long time.” Until recently, she was playing in the local band Sherry Austin with Henhouse, which was well known in town and played regularly. More recently, she’s playing in Wilson’s new group Jazz the Dog, which plays at Michael’s on Main every other Friday. “It’s a little looser now,” Maxine says of her schedule. “I am playing a lot, but it’s different now. I have a hard time saying no [to someone], but I’m trying to learn it a little bit. Unless it’s something that I absolutely do not have a heart for, most of the time it’s ‘Sure, I’ll be there.’ I almost always get something from it.”

SHE’S GOT SOUL Her lap steel chops are not the only


STEEL LIFE money was donated to WomenCare. They raised $2,000 total. “Everyone looks like an old hippie,” says Marzell of the results. “It’s pretty amazing,” Everyone I interviewed made a point to say that although Maxine may be known as the local go-to lap steel player, she is also an incredible singer. And it’s true—she’s soulful, precise and natural. Not only that, but like her gift with the lap steel, she can handle a diverse style of songs. “Sweet Nothin’s” may have showed off her ability to belt out a rough and rowdy rock ’n’ roll song, but she can also sing tender ballads, or lighthearted countrypop tunes. When she sits in with other musicians, she’ll often add vocal harmonies, too, sometimes to the surprise of the musicians that invited her to accompany them. The way it showcased her voice is one of the reasons that her Kuumbwa show five years ago was so special. It turns out she is currently working on a live album using the audio from that night. It’ll be her first-ever solo album, aside from a compilation of odds and ends she put together sometime back for friends. She plans to release it in September, at her 80th birthday party show. Since her 65th birthday party, she’s gotten in the habit of headlining shows once every five years. That first one was a surprise party for her put together by Marzell. This record is really special because while Maxine’s likely gigged more than just about every musician in town, there’s not much recorded material of hers out there to show her wide range of talents. It promises to be a memento of everything she’s contributed to here in Santa Cruz. “It’s a gift to be given,” Maxine says of her musical talents. “I’ve definitely seen people come and go. I’ve watched as some people just starting and learning to play would come to my gigs, or bands that I’m in, then they started putting their own bands together. So now they’re playing, and they’re inviting me to sit in with them. I really enjoy that.”

reason Maxine is a favorite among other musicians. Sills says it’s also because of what a fun person she is to be around. “She’s a blast. She can keep up with me drink for drink for sure. It’s always fun to have Patti Max around, hanging out,” Sills says. Maxine is also a thoughtful player, one of the least celebrated but most important skills a musician can possess. She’s got a lot of tricks up her sleeve, but she’s careful to give the song exactly what it needs rather than showing off everything she can do on the lap steel. “She doesn’t dominate,” local musician Andy Fuhrman says. “Sometimes you’ll have somebody play with you and they’re just loud and take over. They just fill up all the space. She doesn’t do that. What a fantastic person she is. Her personality and the type of person she is—that’s a significant piece of why people love her and want to play with her.” Her generosity has led her to donate her talents to important causes—though, again, she doesn’t mention this herself. Marzell says that in particular Maxine is always willing to show up for feminist, progressive and LGBTQ events. “She contributes her singing and her music, not so much standing on a soapbox. It’s huge. Music is transformation,” Marzell says. One of the most interesting campaigns Maxine was involved in was called the Patti Maxine Living Wig Foundation, which was a collaboration between her and Wilson. People have long obsessed over Maxine’s silver hair, so she and Wilson decided to use it to raise money for WomenCare, a local organization that supports women with cancer. “People would always either ask me, ‘Are you going to cut your hair?’ or say, ‘Do not cut your hair.’ Those were my only two choices,” Maxine says, laughing. “We talked about that, and played around with the idea and came up with the Patti Maxine Living Wig Foundation.” They took a photo of Maxine with her hair on full display. Then for $25, folks could have Maxine’s hair photoshopped onto them. This

Cruz Shakespeare. The love between young Romeo and Juliet erupts within a centuries-old feud between Verona’s leading families, the Capulets and the Montagues. On the brink of maturity, the two offspring of opposing noble families, Romeo (Taha Mandviwala)

and Juliet (Isabel Pask), throw themselves into a forbidden love, even as their elders—and cousins— fight to the death. Shakespeare’s tale of tragic love plays with the uneasy tensions of hot-blooded youth and seasoned

As directed by Laura Gordon, the play’s powerful secondary characters are given plenty of room to strut and fret.

advised love at first sight, youthful rebellion against parental authority, and, of course, classic tropes like the lusty companion, the ribald nurse, and the meddling priest. As directed by Laura Gordon, the play’s powerful secondary characters—noblemen, servants, parents—are given plenty of room to strut and fret. Mercutio, one of Shakespeare’s cockiest men about town and Romeo’s best buddy, is turned loose (in the able form of Lorenzo Robert) to regale the entire stage, aisles, and audience with his nimble sexual swagger. In Roberts’ hands, Mercutio’s “Queen Mab” speech becomes a torrent of hip-hop virtuosity. A shorter leash might serve just as well, but opening night’s audience ate it up. As Juliet’s good-hearted, no-nonsense, broad and bawdy Nurse, Patty Gallagher has her way, both with Shakespeare and with us. Clearly in her native element, Gallagher can turn a single syllable into a sonic Wikipedia of primal wisdom. And once again, the mere sight of Tommy A. Gomez as Juliet’s father Capulet, is enough to quicken the pulse of the outdoor amphitheater. Indignant at his daughter’s refusal to marry the suitor he has selected, Gomez’s Capulet unleashes a torrent of rage and invective so tart and compelling that we can taste his wrath. Clone this man! Mike Ryan as Friar Lawrence brings clarity and reason into the rash scenario of two young lovers demanding to be united in

matrimony. Mandviwala is such a graceful and persuasive actor that his Romeo often penetrates clichés this story has endured over the centuries. Dashing and athletic— though Romeo is destined to be “fortune’s fool”—he literally climbs up to Juliet’s balcony for a kiss, and then somersaults his way down again. Swash and buckle! The production provides us the spectacle of women brandishing swords and knives in expert duels and street scuffles—notably the brilliant swagger of Nia Kingsley as Romeo’s cousin Benvolio, and the taunting toughness of Maggie Adams McDowell as Juliet’s cousin Tybalt—and I can envision a production with the central roles reversed. Mandviwala’s beauty could create a smoldering Juliet, with the stalwart Pask (here playing Juliet) an earnest Romeo. The idea of love enflames these two even more than love itself. But it's enough to use against the iron wills of their warring parents. And for a while, it succeeds, until fate steps in, and—well, you know how it ends. Costumes by B. Modern provide much to fill the eye—the gorgeous actors provide the rest. A full moon shining high above the stage lent a scenic grace note to the premiere performance. Laced with the bristle of love/hate dynamics, Romeo and Juliet enfolds the ironic tragedy within a tissue of playful energy. Santa Cruz Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet runs’ through Sept. 2 at The Grove in DeLaveaga Park. santacruzshakespeare.org.

NORTHWEST FUGITIVE Santa Cruz transplant Frank Barter plays Flynn’s on Thursday, Aug. 2.

Barter System How Frank Barter survived the Seattle grunge years and got a fresh start in Santa Cruz BY AARON CARNES excitement in the city spilled over. “People were out listening to music. It was a festive city. It was alive,” Barter explains. “I was getting a name for myself. I was playing in front of good crowds.” All his hard work did lead to a record deal, though not with a major. Paul Hodes, who later became a U.S. congressman for the state of New Hampshire, signed Barter to his small indie label Big Round Records. He knew of Barter from the Midnights, which played covers and Barter originals. But he wanted to sign Barter as a solo artist and focus on his original material. Big Round Records released two of Barter’s records, Stone Highways (1995) and the follow-up Dreamtown (2000),

which found a larger audience. “It’s sold a fair amount of units and got some airplay. I didn’t have to go get a real job. I could actually live as a musician,” Barter. It’s been a couple decades, and though Barter—who now lives in Santa Cruz—has stayed active as a live performer, and continued to write, he’s only now putting out his first release since Dreamtown—a new four-song EP on Valley Entertainment called Ready. And Barter is making a big push to get his music out there, tour, and once again build a fanbase. “I really want to get my music exposed. I want to find my bigger audience,” Barter says. “So many people don’t get the chance to do

n the early ’90s, Frank Barter was gigging as much as he could with his band the Midnights, who played blues, heartfelt rock, and ’70s-style singersongwriter inspired tunes. There were a lot of gigs to go around, because he was in Seattle right in the midst of the grunge explosion. “Major labels were everywhere. You never knew who was in the crowd,” Barter says. “We’d rehearse in the same building as some band that was going to be on a major six months later and have a huge record.” The kind of music that Barter and his band were playing wasn’t exactly in line with what the grunge bands were doing. Still, the general

that. They either stop or the music beats them down or whatever. Life gets in the way. I just kept going and going and going.” The EP is actually four songs taken from Dreamtown, but remastered and tweaked a bit. Valley Entertainment felt like the best way to introduce Barter’s music to the world would be to re-release four of his best songs. If all goes well, they’ll be putting out some of Barter’s new material—which he has plenty of. These are songs that are timeless for Barter. One of them, “Graveyard Songs,” is about visiting the grave of his sister who passed away when she was 12 and Barter was 15. “I was never going to outgrow that. And how that makes me feel, the reason that I go there—it just conjures up memories that are going to be with me forever,” Barter says. The Valley Entertainment deal came about because Hodes, who remained a friend and advocate of Barter’s music, met Jon Birgé, the president of Valley, and recommended his music to him. “He had worked with Columbia and Sony for many years, coming up through the Dylan, Springsteen, late ’70s singer-songwriter rock ’n’ roll genre,” Barter says. “He identified with my stuff right away.” The timing has been great for Barter. About four years ago, he was thinking about putting a serious effort into music again, but then got diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (a bone marrow cancer). In the fall of 2016, it went into remission. He first talked to Birgé about releasing his music not long after. The whole experience has given him some perspective. Going through cancer has informed a lot of his new material. But it wasn’t the cancer itself, it was learning about himself in that process. “I don’t want to write the cancer album. Good Lord. Who wants to hear that? No one wants that album,” Barter says. “This music is about the love in relationships and the struggle to get through it all.”

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND

SUBORBITALS Ryan Masters recalls how excited he was in 2006 when his avant-pop band the Suborbitals released its debut record, Blackout Rolling. It felt like there was some momentum behind the group, and he was ready to get in the studio and record a follow-up album. The following year, a series of personal issues led him to Atlanta for five years. He still worked on material for his band, and when he moved back to the area, they were playing live again. But it’s at this upcoming show at the Crepe Place that the Suborbitals will finally release that follow-up, Hey Oblivion.

AUGUST 1-7, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“It didn’t have the murky darkness of our live shows,” he says of the group’s first record. “We’ve always had a reputation as a good live band. We’ve never had any solid recordings behind us. We’d have to say, ‘come see us live.’ This album sounds like us. It’s really moody and dark. We can send people this album to see what we’re like.”

44

Besides vocalist Masters, the group is comprised of Heath Proskin on bass, Gordon Stokes on drums and Ben Herod on baritone sax and flute. There’s a gritty punk sound mixed with a mysterious jazzy quality, and the execution at times sounds like cabaret-pop with a dark side. The band members have been re-energized by finally getting their sophomore album out. “It went so well that I’m hoping we’ll make another one. Of course, I said that last time, and it took 12 years. I probably shouldn’t say that this time,” Masters says. AARON CARNES INFO: 9 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 4. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $10. 429-6994.

FEMI KUTI

WEDNESDAY 8/1 GARAGE

SANTOROS One glance at Santoros and their combination of a Seeds-era psychedelic look and traditional Mariachi band outfits, and you’ll probably ask yourself what exactly this band is up to. Well, the L.A. outfit delivers surfy-poppy garage rock tunes packaged in a surreal haze. There’s also a subtle Latin influence in the music, and the members are proud of their Mexican-American heritage—they promote themselves as a Mexican American garage surf rock band—so there’s a lot to love here. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $10. 429-6994.

BLUEGRASS

DAVID HOLODILOFF For many deadheads, it’s still hard to believe Jerry Garcia left us 23 years ago, because his songs continue to fill the air. For his ninth annual Jerry Garcia Bluegrass Birthday Bash Tribute Concert, David Holodiloff is bringing his acoustic bluegrass band to Michael’s on Main for a night of

music spanning Garcia’s career. From the Grateful Dead to JGB, Old and in the Way, and more, party on what would’ve been Garcia’s 76th birthday with his music reinterpreted in ways that the man himself would smile, smile, smile about. MAT WEIR INFO: 7:30 p.m. Michael’s On Main, 2591 S Main St., Soquel. $12/adv, $15/door. 497-9777.

FRIDAY 8/3 COUNTRY

JUNIOR BROWN Country legend Junior Brown has been playing honky tonk clubs since the ’60s. He has an affinity for traditional country music, but he’s not stuck in the past. In his song “Hang Up And Drive,” for instance, he sings about how everyone is on their cell phones when they should be paying attention to the road. He also plays the “guit-steel,” a double-neck instrument combining a standard electric guitar and a lap steel. While the songs are basically old-timey country, his guit-steel, gives them a psychedelic vibe. AC INFO: 8:30 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $25/adv, $30/ door. 479-1854.

SATURDAY 8/4 AMERICANA/COMEDY

RALPH ANYBODY & FRIENDS Ralph Anybody (aka Jeff Juliano) is a familiar name around Santa Cruz. The longtime KPIG personality and DJ with penchant for comedy celebrated 25 years at the station last year, and is a core part of what makes KPIG so special. This Saturday, Ralph teams up with comedian Fred Reiss and musicians Jeffrey Halford and Michael Gaither for a night of music and comedy to benefit Jacob’s Heart and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Cruz County.

oned with. He’s been playing music professionally since the late ’70s, and he’s still releasing stellar albums. His latest, One People One World, mixes Afrobeat, jazz and soul, and balances his usual political ferocity with songs about love, humanity and hope for the future. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $29/adv, $32/door. 429-4135.

COUNTRY

To some, Shooter Jennings is a bit of a mystery. Born the son of country music royalty, he followed in his father’s footsteps as a musician. However, instead of sticking to honkytonk and outlaw country, Jennings blazed his own path by unapologetically blending raw rock ’n’ roll and even experimental music into his reinvented country sound. After two decades, Jennings is still as bold and brazen as ever, prepping to release his latest album, Shooter, on Aug. 10.

KEITH GREENINGER & DAYAN KAI

KIM NALLEY WITH HOUSTON PERSON

Longtime friends and local folk heroes Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai have both crafted solo careers that see them playing across the states (including Kai’s current home of Maui, Hawaii), impressing audiences with award-winning songwriting, virtuosic musicianship, and a heart-first approach to music and life. Greeninger is a familiar entity on the Americana circuit, having toured and performed for more than three decades. Kai is rightly described as a “true musical force of nature”—a multi-instrumentalist with a mastery over countless instruments, despite having been born without sight. This Sunday, the two join forces for what promises to be an intimate, heart-warming afternoon. CJ INFO: 2 p.m. Michael’s on Main, 2591 Main St., Soquel. $25/adv, $30/door. 479-9777.

Over the years, Kim Nalley has brilliantly evoked inimitable masters such as Nina Simone and Billie Holiday in various stage productions and thematic shows of her own design, but she’s never sought to sound like anyone but her own glorious self. A powerhouse blues vocalist who can make a double entendre blush and a jazz singer who can caress a ballad or trade lickity-split licks with her bassist, Nalley has been one of the Bay Area’s definitive jazz artists for more than two decades. Backed by her longtime rhythm section with the invaluable pianist Tammy Hall, redoubtable bassist Michael Zisman and unfailingly musical drummer Kent Bryson, Nalley is in the midst of a series of gigs with tenor sax great Houston Person, a brawny but lyrical stylist who has spent most of his career blowing soulfully in organ combos. ANDREW GILBERT INFO: 7 p.m. Kuumbwa Jazz, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $31.50-$36.75. 427-2227.

INFO: Through Sept. 1. Grove at DeLaveaga Park, 501 Upper Park Road, Santa Cruz. $20-$35. 4606399. Information: santacruzshakespeare.org. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 3 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the performance.

Romeo, oh Romeo. The story of Romeo and his beloved Juliet has woven itself into our pop culture—in movies, songs, books and more—and for good reason. Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare’s most iconic love story, a tragic tale of two young people desperately in love, and the society determined to keep them apart. This year, Santa Cruz Shakespeare presents the classic production under the guidance of director Laura Gordon. CJ

FILM

DEEP CYMBALISM Elsie Fisher plays a teenager facing her last week of middle school in ‘Eighth Grade.’

AUGUST 1-7, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Unlucky 13

Wry humor, poignant insights fuel ‘Eighth Grade’ BY LISA JENSEN

O

nce upon a time, they called it junior high school, that fraught and fretful gateway into the teenage years. These days, it’s known as middle school. But even though the name has changed, and the advent of personal technology has altered the landscape even more, the excruciating angst of being 13 is the same for every generation—an experience captured to poignant comic perfection in Eighth Grade. It’s the first feature film from writerdirector Bo Burnham, an actor and stand-up comedian best known for directing comedy specials. What’s most remarkable about

the movie is Burnham’s insight into young female psychology, and the eggshell-strewn minefield of parentchild relationships. Working closely with his muse and co-conspirator Elsie Fisher, turning in a galvanizing performance as an eighth-grade girl enduring her last week of middle school, Burnham zeroes in with tender precision on the special awkwardness of this in-between, unavoidable phase of life. For those of us who have spent our entire adult lives trying to forget our 13-year-old selves (which would be, roughly, everybody alive), this movie brings it all flooding back— every yearning, every perceived

slight, every desperately game attempt to at least appear, you know, normal. It’s a return trip most of us would not care to make in real life, but we can view Burnham’s intense replication from a safe distance, with a spectator’s eye—and escape, intact, after only 93 minutes. Burnham doesn’t take the easy route of making his protagonist some kind of outcast, which would confer on her the status of underdog heroine. Kayla Day (Fisher) is a perfectly ordinary eighth-grader; she has no friends not because the other kids shun her, but because she’s so “quiet” that few of her classmates ever even notice her. She

assures herself that people would find her cool and funny if only they took the trouble to get to know her. Where Kayla does most of her talking is in the daily videos she uploads onto her YouTube channel, where she dispenses advice on random topics like confidence and “getting yourself out there.” (These are mostly pep talks for herself, rather than for any audience of watchers she’s not even sure are tuning in.) She certainly doesn’t spare many words for her father Mark (Josh Hamilton), a patient and loving single dad who’s all thumbs when it comes to trying to coax his touchy tween to take out her earbuds and have a conversation at the dinner table. Kayla’s last week of middle school is full of explosive little moments. Despite her distress, she shows up when a snobby popular girl’s mom forces her daughter to invite Kayla to a pool party. She’s delirious when she makes a friend, the perky high school senior Olivia (Emily Robinson), assigned to show Kayla around on Senior Shadow Day. She’s confronted with her first clumsy sexual advance in a scene that rings painfully true for every former 13-year-old in the audience. Burnham never misses a beat of emotional truth throughout his tale, from the way loud metal music hammers in Kayla’s head every time she sees the sloe-eyed lout she has a secret crush on, to her dependence on YouTube to explain the world to her (from makeup tips to the definition of blowjob). Fisher even walks like an eighth-grader— shoulders hunched, chin down. A late-inning scene when her dad haltingly reveals his own hopes and dreams for his daughter, and the young woman she’s becoming, is wonderfully effective. Finally, Kayla’s understanding of who she is, and her decision to stay true to her emerging self no matter what, wins our hearts. EIGHTH GRADE ***1/2 (out of four) With Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, and Emily Robinson. Written and directed by Bo Burnham. An A24 release. Rated R. 93 minutes.

FILM NEW RELEASES CHRISTOPHER ROBIN There are all these complicated tests out there now that are supposed to tell you if your partner is secretly a psychopath, but I have a super easy one. One morning, just casually say, “Hey, are you interested in seeing this adorable and charming new live-action film in which Ewan MCGregor plays an adult Christopher Robin who has lost touch with his sense of childish fun, but then rediscovers Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and all of his other friends in the 100 Acre Wood?” If he or she says no, get out of the house now! Run for your life! That person is definitely going to murder you for the insurance money. Directed by Marc Forster. Co-starring Hayley Atwell and Bronte Carmichael. (PG) 104 minutes. (SP)

AUGUST 1-7, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

THE DARKEST MINDS After 98 percent of children die from a pandemic, the ones left alive mysteriously develop superpowers, and the government rounds them up and puts them in prison camps. Before the Trump administration, this would have sounded like science fiction! Directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson. Starring Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie. (PG-13) 105 minutes. (SP)

52

EIGHTH GRADE Reviewed this issue. Directed by Bo Burnham. Starring Elsie Fisher and Josh Hamilton. (R) 93 minutes. THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME This could have been the perfect title for a sequel to Melissa McCarthy’s very funny Spy, but instead it’s been taken by this action comedy starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as women who get pulled into an international espionage drama because one of their ex-boyfriends worked for the CIA. The tagline “In 2018, women are killing it” is supposed to make you think grrrl power (I guess?), but the jokes are still like, “Do you know how to change a gear?” “What’s a gear?” Get it, girls don’t know anything about cars! Or, apparently, second-grade

vocabulary! Oh, the 1950s-era hilarity! Directed by Susanna Fogel. Co-starring Justin Theroux, Lolly Adefope and Sam Heughan. (R) 116 minutes. (SP) CONTINUING EVENT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES Film buffs are invited Wednesday nights at 7 pm to downtown Santa Cruz, where each week the group discusses a different current release. For location and discussion topic, go to https:// groups.google.com/group/LTATM.

NOW PLAYING ANT-MAN AND THE WASP When I first heard about this movie, I thought it stood for Ant-Man and the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, and I was like, “Whoa, Roseanne was one thing, but this pandering to Trump voters is getting a little obvious!” But no, actually it’s like a buzz-buzz kind of Wasp, and she is a superhero who joins up with another insect superhero, the Ant-Man. You would think their superpowers would probably be ruining picnics and making people go “Aaaah!” But instead, they change size and fly around and make jokes while catching bad guys. That’s way better! Directed by Peyton Reed. Starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. (PG-13) 118 minutes. (SP) BLINDSPOTTING Writers and co-stars Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs (of Hamilton fame) deliver their “love letter to Oakland” after 10 years of development. They play two former childhood friends (not a stretch, since they actually were) trying to get through the last three days of a year-long probation being served by Collin (Diggs). But his reckless friend Miles (Casal) may be the biggest threat to his freedom. Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada. Co-starring Janina Gavankar and Wayne Knight. (R) 95 minutes. (SP) DON’T WORRY, HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT Gus Van Sant returns with a biopic based on the memoir of John Callahan, who became a quadriplegic in a car

accident at age 21 and went on to have a celebrated but controversial career as a Portland alt-weekly cartoonist. Directed by Van Sant. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jack Black, Rooney Mara and Jonah Hill. (R) 111 minutes. (SP) THE EQUALIZER 2 Denzel Washington is back as the Equalizer, and this time … it’s personal. No, really, I’m not just saying that! His friend gets killed and everything! And then he has to go avenge her death. That’s what you do when you’re the Equalizer and … it’s personal. Directed by Antoine Fuqua. Co-starring Pedro Pascal, Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman. (R) (SP) INCREDIBLES 2 Normally, a sequel that takes 14 years to make is a dubious proposition. But for this follow-up to the megahit about a family of superheroes coming to grips with their powers—which is, if not the best Pixar film of all time, certainly in the conversation—I think we’ll all make an exception. Directed by Brad Bird. Featuring the voices of Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Vowell and Samuel L. Jackson. (PG) 118 minutes. (SP) LEAVE NO TRACE In Debra Granik’s new film, the tension builds steadily between a reclusive father determined to live off the grid, in the wilderness, and the loyal teenage daughter he means to shield from — but also deprives of — the complications of civilized life. Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie carries the brunt of the drama as the curious daughter Tom, who slowly awakens to the possibilities of a different life than the one she’s always lived with her father. And Ben Foster turns in a performance of aching, simmering reserve as taciturn father Will. Directed by Debra Granik. Starring Ben Foster and Thomasin Mckenzie. (PG) 109 minutes. (LJ) MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN It’s hard to make fun of a sequel that’s already making fun of itself, so perhaps “Here We Go Again” in the title was a preemptive strike on the haters. It’s also, of course, a play on the Abba

lyrics on which this whole ungodly franchise is built. First there were the 1970s pop songs, then there was the 1999 musical Mamma Mia!, then there was the 2008 movie based on it, and now this second film puts us four decades into people obsessing over a group whose most famous lyrics are “You can dance/You can jive/Having the time of your life.” Enough! I’m not going to your damn sing-along! Directed by Ol Parker. Starring Lily James, Amanda Seyfried and Meryl Streep. (PG-13) 114 minutes. (SP) MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT I thought I was crazy when I first noticed that the popularity of Mission: Impossible movies seem to grow the more Tom Cruise gets hurt. To put it a little more accurately, the more the movies undercut Cruise’s veneer of action-hero flawlessness, the more people flock to them. But I’m not the only person who thinks this, because the trailer for the latest one features a scene where Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt is scared to jump out a window. And it’s really funny! For some reason, Tom Cruise getting owned just never gets tired. Hell, isn’t that why we all watched Edge of Tomorrow, to see him get killed over and over again? Directed by Christopher McQuarrie. Co-starring Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg. 147 minutes. (SP) SKYSCRAPER In San Andreas, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had to fly a helicopter hundreds of miles to rescue his family after they were nearly killed by a massive earthquake. In this movie, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has to ascend a burning skyscraper to rescue his family who are trapped at the top. I think the message is: Kids, do not let your mom marry Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or you are toast. Not even one date! Get her the hell off Tinder! You don’t want this flaming deathtrap of a parent swiping left into your life, believe me. Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber. Co-starring Neve Campbell, Noah Taylor and McKenna Roberts. (PG-13) 102 minutes. (SP)

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU This story of an African American Oakland telemarketer who finds success when he discovers his “white voice” is whip-smart social satire, for sure, and the best politically conscious movie to come out in a long time. But it’s funny and entertaining as hell, too. It’s also not a good movie to give away too much about. Halfway through, you’ll still be wondering why this film keeps being described as sci-fi—but, oh man, when you find out ... we’ll, you’ll never think of the word “workhorse” the same way again, that’s for sure. Starring Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Danny Glover and Patton Oswalt. (R) 105 minutes. (SP) TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES Whoever decided to make an adorable comedy version of Teen Titans for Cartoon Network, I salute you. It really makes you wonder why DC Comics characters are so much better in animated films than live-action ones lately. Just the voice casting here alone is genius: Nicolas Cage as Superman, Patton Oswalt as Atom, Will Arnett as Slade, Halsey as Wonder Woman? I’m totally there. Directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail. Co-starring the voices of Tara Strong, Scott Menville and Khary Payton. (PG) (SP) THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS This documentary presents an interesting question for film writers: since the story of these three identical twins who only found each other as teenagers, after being separated at birth, has been thoroughly written about for decades, can there really be spoilers about it? The director himself, Tim Wardle, has admitted he is struggling with this same issue in promoting the film. Personally, I think the best thing to do if you don’t know this story is to go into the movie without reading one single thing about the true story … and prepare to have your mind completely blown. Trust me, you will not believe the twist in what was already a one-of-kind story. (PG-13) 96 minutes. (SP)

Al Fresco benefit dinner for Food What?!

P

lanning ahead matters even more as the last months of summer speed by. I want you to mark your calendar for Sept. 30 and plan to join adventurous diners in meeting some remarkable young growers. The event is the Fall Benefit Dinner celebrating Food What?!’s latest crop of proactive members. The dinner’s theme is “Youth Voice,” and believe me, you’ll hear a lot of youthful enthusiasm, personal stories, and inspirational anecdotes. The Food What?! movement helps local young people transition into their futures armed with confidence and a fresh

toolbox of skills centered around growing and preparing food. The outdoor dinner happens under the redwoods at the Santa Cruz Mission State Park from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Some of the youth crew recruited and mentored by Executive Director Doron Comerchero and his capable team will share their stories, as you enjoy a meal they’ve prepared working with local chefs from El Salchichero, Oswald, Penny Ice Creamery, and My Mom’s Mole. This justly popular dinner will fill up fast, so make your reservations now. No cost, just a request for support at the end of the evening. foodwhat.org.

Winemaker Richard Alfaro is nothing if not passionate about the wines from his Alfaro Family Vineyards. He will be bringing that passion, and some rustic tales of life on his equally rustic Corralitos estate on Thursday, Aug. 23, to Persephone Restaurant in Aptos. The chef at the attractive Aptos dining room will prepare a five-course meal to accompany Alfaro’s guided tasting of Lester Pinot Noir, Rosé of Pinot Noir, Trout Gulch Chardonnay, Bates Ranch Cabernet Franc, and a Cremant de Corralitos. Chatting starts at 6 p.m., dining begins at 6:30 p.m. $120/non-inclusive. Phone Persephone for reservations: 612-6511.

RED WINE PRO TIP

BY CHRISTINA WATERS TOP DOG Congratulations to our very own Happy Dog Hot Dog cart, getting the nod in the “Money” section of Time magazine as one of the top 10 hot dog concessions in the country. Owner Daniel Aguirre, and his straightforward trio of beef hot dog, Polish sausage, and Corralitos sausage have caught the eye of locals, and national critics as well. Must be all that homemade mustard.

MALABAR EXCITEMENT Culinary shaman Raj Weerasekara has been making incredible and complex dishes at Malabar for many years.

You know it’s been hot. And you know what warm temperatures do to wine. Not a pretty picture. So! Time to break the rules. Stash that bottle of house red—in our case these days, a Grenache from Birichino—in the refrigerator. Do not even think of pouring it until it’s been chilled for at least an hour. Alex Krause may not speak to me again for suggesting this, but then again … he might. Room temperature, at which we have all been taught to serve red wine, really means “room temperature in the subterranean cellar of a 17th century French chateau.” In other words, the exact temperature the bottle of wine will achieve after one hour in your refrigerator. Your tastebuds will thank you for this, and the wine itself will open nicely. Meanwhile it will be a most refreshing antidote to the warm evenings of August. Or September.

onant Pi is running on fumes— smoky, delicious Korean barbecue fumes. They’ve been around a month since Pi opened HōM, his third installment of the Korean comfort food kitchen (also located in Redwood City and San Jose) on Pacific Avenue. Not to be confused with Brad Briske’s Soquel restaurant, HōM and High Tide Poke Shop share the former Hoffman’s building space. Pi says between all of the commuting to and from his other restaurants, working 16-hour days everyday and getting ready for the soft opening, he’s had to really hit the ground running. While they have settled in, and their inexpensive, build-your-own Korean bowl fills a gap in the Santa Cruz dining scene, Pi wants people to know that it’s still very much a work in progress.

Why Korean cooking?

KONANT PI: I would cook Korean food for my friends at home, that’s why it’s called HōM. I want people to feel like they are coming into my house and having a fresh cooked meal with no artificial ingredients or preservatives, just a nice wholesome fresh meal. We have gluten-free, vegan options because when people

come into my home I don’t want anyone to be excluded. I think also Korean cuisine is underappreciated, and for a lot of Korean restaurants the menu is hard to navigate, you have to have a Korean with you to show you how to order. So I wanted a more approachable concept, where they could see the process.

What’s the deal with the split restaurant? Do you own the poke place, too? Yes, we own it too. A lot of customers have asked us if we offer fish or seafood, so I thought it would be a nice compliment to have poke. How we came to this space is actually interesting. A customer always said that we should move to Santa Cruz, and I would say ‘OK, find me a space.’ Sure enough, he did, and long story short, it was a really large space, but I didn’t want to turn it down because I really wanted to be out here. So we incorporated the kitchen as our main central kitchen for the other locations and added the poke to be a compliment to the grilled meats. HōM/High Tide Poke Shop. 1102 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. homkoreankitchen. com. 217-1133.

have been a fan of Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery for a long time—their wines get better and better and it’s always a joy to visit their tasting room and happening outdoor patio. Winemaker Richard Alfaro and his wife Mary Kay Alfaro want every visitor to have a good experience. I tried an impressive 2016 Rosella’s Vineyard Chardonnay ($32) recently, made with grapes from Santa Lucia Highlands. Tasting notes say: “This wine begins on the nose with the subtle hint of fresh-baked bread,” which is apropos considering Richard Alfaro used to own a bakery. This pale straw-colored Chardonnay also carries tempting aromas of caramel and cinnamon, leading to creamy tropical mango, peach and pear flavors. Richard suggests pairing it with fish, shellfish, pork, or dishes that have a cream or butter base. But with such a delicious wine, it’s perfectly fine to have a glass all by itself. Local artist Scott Erwert designed the eye-catching label, which stars a young blonde driving a tractor through a lush vineyard.

H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES LAMMAS—FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS

Esoteric Astrology as news for week of Aug. 1, 2018 Lammas (Old English for “lamb,” and later “loaf,” as in bread) celebrates the first grain harvests. Observed Aug. 1 in the northern hemisphere, we can extend the festival all week. Lammas is a festival of gratitude. After summer rains, wheat was harvested and ground into flour. Loaves of bread, including communion bread, were made and taken to the churches for blessing. Lammas was a community celebration. Shakespeare refers to Lammas Eve as the 14th birthday of Juliet from Romeo and Juliet. This first harvest prepares humanity for the coming autumn and winter, cooler days, crisp apples, roasting of the southwest chile and the last of summer’s tomatoes and corn. Lammas reminded humanity of the cycle of life and death (light and dark). During August,

ARIES Mar21–Apr20 You’re like the star of the month in all that you do. Your powerful leadership qualities are called to do tasks no one else can perform. This helps you gain confidence and a new creative identity coming forth. You discover that not only do you initiate new projects, but you’re very competent and skillful. Maintain balance by being dignified, understanding and kind in all situations. You are an influencer.

people knew that soon Persephone would be taken to the underworld by Pluto and Demeter. Her mother, griefstricken, would make the leaves fall and the darkness come. But before autumn, there was to be festivity, celebrations, gathering the first fruits and baking the first loaves of bread. And so we, too, give pause in these hot August days, recognizing what is abundant in our lives. In celebration, let us decorate doorways and tables with vines and leaves, make corn dollies, eat summer fruits, celebrate skills, talents and craftsmanship of friends and family, and bake bread together from the first harvest of grains (non-GMO and organic). goes directly to their hearts. You have many who admire your straightforwardness, generosity and ability to share. As you shine your benevolent light on everyone, it allows others to be in the spotlight, too. This makes them feel special. You realize the fact that leaders lead and follow simultaneously.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

GEMINI May 22–June 20

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

You must always speak from your center of truth. It allows people to know you as authentic. You must seek to discover your creative voice and words. Have courage and self-confidence to speak always from the heart, never from the lower mind. It is important to know the difference—one unites and the other separates. You want to attain self-realization, and unite with others. You must know your heart and follow it. No stepping back.

What are your ideals? Write them down, review them, cross out and add to them. Ideals are the outcome of vision, so it’s also important to understand what visions you have and maintain those visions even in adversity. You have a central purpose, and that is to express the truth of what you believe. You are also to have concern for others and not be someone with limited self-concerns only. It’s the heart of all things, which is your heart, that matters.

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20

You always bring something good, nourishing, unusual and new to the table. You shine when people love you. But you often hide under a shell because you’re shy. At times, people don’t hear or understand you. Maintain poise and confidence and your authority over resources and finances. Don’t give this away. When you give without expectation, there is a return a hundredfold.

Sometimes you are a mystery to others. Mysteries are good. Yours has a special tone, color and vibration. It can hold your creativity and passion. Allow your intuition to guide you. You always have dignity, even when situations are at their most difficult. Life is complex these days. Tune into all that’s unspoken around you to understand the heart of everything speaking with you. It happens mostly in the garden. The devas there want to communicate with you. Tell them your name. They will eventually talk back.

LE0 Jul21–Aug22 Happy birthday to Leos, the heart of the zodiac, the sunflowers of the zodiac. When you use your personal power to help others you shine golden like the Sun. During this birthday month, allow yourself to be dramatic, at one with whatever you love: flamboyant, expressive, creative, radiant, benevolent. But not a dictator; that will tarnish your image and make people back away. Be good to everyone. Show them the kindness of benevolent royalty.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 Your new fluency is creativity in all its forms. It’s a Leo, Pisces, Virgo creativity. Much is yet unknown to you about this creativity. However, should you begin a creative project, the steps and outcome will flow from your heart, mind and hands with ease. It is good to consider yourself an artist, recognizing your gifts with pride and humility. You might want to become lost in solitude to discover this process.

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22 You’re always a star of the party. Your smile lights up everyone’s state of mind, and, like the light of Sirius,

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18 During the days to come, somehow you become mysterious, hiding behind an unspoken reality holding onto your personal power. Something’s very instinctual about you, deep like dark, streaming waters. You sense those you can and cannot trust, those who use you for gain, and those who are loyal friends. You’re aware of setting aside childish behaviors. You become playful and laugh a lot. You’re in a time of deep profound change. Remain there.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 Always Pisces must remember to maintain a distinct sense of self-identity and strength in relationships. This can be a difficult task and a test for Pisces, ruled by Neptune, which helps Pisces blend into other realities— people, places and events—until they are lost and without identity. Pisceans, like Libra, are always seeking balance. Pisces seems drifty a lot, but behind that façade is a very logical and mathematical mind.

You shine for those who love you. Your reflection is always in their hearts. They experience your nurturing playful qualities. You are not concerned with public identity or social standing. You are able to lead people in ethical judgments, taking responsibility, and doing their duty. Many do not understand responsibilities, ethics or duties until they meet you.

At times, we must do what makes us uncomfortable. Moving away from caution and gambling a little on being on the edge and knowing it will be safe. You need a big influx of style in your life—whatever style means to you, adopt it and act within it. You will find you’ve stepped out of yourself into a place that has a bit more zest, color, seasoning, zing, excitement, passion and exhilaration. You need a little thrill, some anticipation and pleasure. Your destiny is not to be boring.

HEATHER BECHTEL, 20-Year Customer, Santa Cruz

Occupation: Executive director, Rabbit Haven Hobbies: Taking caring of rabbits, miniature art, water color, reading Astrological Sign: Virgo What is Rabbit Haven? A rabbit rescue organization that I founded in 1987. Nice. So who or what first introduced you to Shopper’s Corner? I had heard about their organic produce… It’s really good quality, and whoever does their buying does an excellent job! I’m a vegetarian and I believe Shopper’s has the best fruits and veggies in Santa Cruz. I’ll stock up for only three days’ worth as I like everything fresh.And you’ll always find something exotic! Between my rabbits and myself, my summer shopping list may include red and green leaf lettuces and romaine, celery, cilantro, various parsleys, avocados, strawberries, blueberries, melons plus many more fruits.

What do you like to cook? I try and cook seasonally. Soups and squash in the winter, and other times it might be salads, pasta dishes and pasta salads, also stir-frys with my own natural fruit sauces. I like the local breads Shopper’s carries — especially Kelly’s — plus their super cheese and wine selections. I prefer California wines, and there’s always someone here to assist me when pairing food with my purchases. Shopper’s contains all the basics you need to feed a family — rabbit families too! — in a reasonably sized store with an emphasis on local. I’m community-focused so I support that. One thing I really appreciate is Shopper’s convenience.The store is laid out so you can quickly find what you’re looking for, and parking is easy.

You have a favorite aspect of Shopper’s? Probably the customer service. It’s the best! But, actually it’s on the same level as the quality and freshness of their products. Shopper’s staff is knowledgeable.They’re also warm and friendly, which really lends itself to the shopping experience, which I find fun.The people working here seem calm, cool and collected, and are always willing to assist you, which I appreciate.That’s something that’s missing in many other stores. Shopper’s crew knows my name, my face, and the work I do.You feel appreciated so it feels good spending my money here. Oh, and I always enjoy running into people I know here!
