OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE There are a lot of different ways we get story ideas. Sometimes we’re tipped off by a reader, sometimes a source we’re interviewing for one story gives us a lead on an entirely different one. And sometimes we simply walk into a building where it looks like something interesting is happening. That’s what happened with Georgia Johnson’s cover story this week. Sometime late last year, she came into the office and said, “Have you guys seen that hammock café that’s going into the old Homeless Garden Project building?” I think I just kind of stared blankly at her, since I had never conceived of a situation where “hammock” and “café” would be put together. But she explained that she had seen there was some work going on in the space, and stopped to talk to the owner, who explained about

HEALTHY STACK

In your article “Booking Ahead,” (GT, 7/10), a partner of the firm designing the new Capitola Library is quoted as saying something to the effect that, “libraries will no longer be oppressive spaces with 8-ft. tall shelves stacked top to bottom … with old dusty books,” right, Mr. Noll? It sounds like you are not a frequent or recent user of your own public library. If you were, you would know that no stacks are 8-ft. tall, the books are displayed, not crammed, and the adult patrons find the quiet of the library to be restful, serene, and—if anything—liberating rather than oppressive. The most frequent complaint of adult patrons is that someone else is making too much noise. Quiet is refreshing. The presence of physical books—whether en masse or as individual volumes—creates a special atmosphere that can’t be replaced by screens. Mr. Noll seems to know this on some level, as he says he has incorporated high ceilings in the design to “give a sense of grandeur, uplifting spirits.” Good. That is actually what libraries are about. The role of

the whole phenomenon of hammock cafés in Japan, and how he was going to be bringing it here with his new business. She kept in touch, followed his progress, and in the meantime started diving into the larger social movement that this was a part of. The result is the first part of our Health and Fitness cover package. I’ve learned a lot from the story, and from hearing about her research on it over the last few months. Also in our Health and Fitness coverage is Hugh McCormick’s story on senior fitness. Now, you might be thinking, “Big deal, all seniors are into fitness now.” That’s what I thought at first, too, but when Hugh laid out the specifics of his plan for the story, I was sold. As more people in our society continue to live longer, how are seniors in their 80s, 90s and even 100s staying fit and active? Hugh talked to them for this story, and not only is it enlightening, it includes possibly the best use of the word “ninny” that I’ve ever seen. I’m telling you, we gotta bring ninny back. Here’s to your health! STEVE PALOPOLI | EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

public libraries may be expanding to include more functions as a community center, may be digitizing its collections, but I hope it never loses its fundamental identity as a place of peace, quiet, education, inspiration—and that it always has books. MARTHA DAHLEN | SAN JOSE

REJECT THE RECALL Approximately 35 years ago, Paul Lee and Paul Pfotenhauer asked me to serve with them on the board of the Citizens Committee for the Homeless. Scott Kennedy was on the City Council. The issues on homelessness then were very similar to those we experience today. After a particularly rancorous council meeting, demanding instant removal of the encampment at the corner of Highway 1 and Highway 9, Scott and I went to the camp and talked with a large group of homeless people. I believe he also went with Mike Rotkin another time. Among the outcomes of those conversations and deliberations of Santa Cruz City Council and Citizens for the Homeless were a transitional camp at a state park, >8

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of August 14 ARIES Mar21–Apr19 How did sound technicians create the signature roar of the fictional monster Godzilla? They slathered pine-tar resin on a leather glove and stroked it against the strings of a double bass. How about the famous howl of the fictional character Tarzan? Sonic artists blended a hyena’s screech played backwards, a dog’s growl, a soprano singer’s fluttered intonation slowed down, and an actor’s yell. Karen O, lead singer of band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, periodically unleashes very long screams that may make the hair stand up on the back of her listeners’ necks. In accordance with astrological omens, I’d love to see you experiment with creating your own personal yowl or laugh or whisper of power in the coming weeks: a unique sound that would boost your wild confidence and help give you full access to your primal lust for life.

TAURUS Apr20–May20 “If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough,” said Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, ex-President of Liberia. In accordance with astrological imperatives, I propose that we make that your watchword for the foreseeable future. From what I can tell, you’re due to upgrade your long-term goals. You have the courage and vision necessary to dare yourself toward an even more fulfilling destiny than you’ve been willing or ready to imagine up until now.

GEMINI May21–June20 How did our ancestors ever figure out that the calendula flower can be used as healing medicine for irritated and inflamed skin? It must have been a very long process of trial and error. (Or did the plant somehow “communicate” to indigenous herbalists, informing them of its use?) In any case, this curative herb is only one of hundreds of plants that people somehow came to adjudge as having healing properties. “Miraculous” is not too strong a word to describe such discoveries. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Gemini, you now have the patience and perspicacity to engage in a comparable process: to find useful resources through experiment and close observation—with a hardy assist from your intuition.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22

6

Today the city of Timbuktu in Mali is poor and in the throes of desertification. But from the 14th to 17th centuries, it was one of the great cultural centers of the world. Its libraries filled up with thousands of influential books, which remained intact until fairly recently. In 2012, Al-Qaeda jihadists conceived a plan to destroy the vast trove of learning and scholarship. One man foiled them. Abba al-Hadi, an illiterate guard who had worked at one of the libraries, smuggled out many of the books in empty rice sacks. By the time the jihadists started burning, most of the treasure had been relocated. I don’t think the problem in your sphere is anywhere near as dire as this, Cancerian. But I do hope you will be proactive about saving and preserving valuable resources before they’re at risk of being diluted, compromised, or neglected.

LE0 Jul23–Aug22 Moray eels have two sets of jaws. The front set does their chewing. The second set, normally located behind the first, can be launched forward to snag prey they want to eat. In invoking this aggressive strategy to serve as a metaphor for you in the coming weeks, I want to suggest that you be very dynamic and enterprising as you go after what you want and need. Don’t be rude and invasive, of course, but consider the possibility of being audacious and zealous.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 It’s relatively rare, but now and then people receive money or gifts from donors they don’t know. Relatives they’ve never met may bequeath them diamond tiaras or alpaca farms or bundles of cash. I don’t think that’s exactly what will occur for you in the coming weeks, but I do suspect that you’ll garner blessings or help from unexpected sources. To help ensure the best possible versions of these acts of

grace, I suggest that you be as generous as possible in the kindness and attention you offer. Remember this verse from the Bible: “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22 Libra-born Ronald McNair was an African-American man who grew up in a racist town in South Carolina in the 1950s. The bigotry cramped his freedom, but he rebelled. When he was 9 years old, he refused to leave a segregated library, which prompted authorities to summon the police. Years later, McNair earned a PhD in Physics from MIT and became renowned for his research on laser physics. Eventually, NASA chose him to be an astronaut from a pool of 10,000 candidates. That library in South Carolina? It’s now named after him. I suspect that you, too, will soon receive some vindication, Libra—a reward or blessing or consecration that will reconfigure your past.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 Scorpio author Zadie Smith wrote, “In the end, your past is not my past and your truth is not my truth and your solution—is not my solution.” I think it will be perfectly fine if sometime soon you speak those words to a person you care about. In delivering such a message, you won’t be angry or dismissive. Rather, you will be establishing good boundaries between you and your ally; you will be acknowledging the fact that the two of you are different people with different approaches to life. And I bet that will ultimately make you closer.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 “Nothing fruitful ever comes when plants are forced to flower in the wrong season,” wrote author and activist Bette Lord. That’s not entirely true. For example, skilled and meticulous gardeners can compel tulip and hyacinth bulbs to flower before they would naturally be able to. But as a metaphor, Lord’s insight is largely accurate. And I think you’ll be wise to keep it in mind during the coming weeks. So my advice is: Don’t try to make people and processes ripen before they are ready. But here’s a caveat: You might have modest success working to render them a bit more ready.

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 “For though we often need to be restored to the small, concrete, limited, and certain, we as often need to be reminded of the large, vague, unlimited, unknown.” Poet A. R. Ammons formulated that shiny burst of wisdom, and now I’m passing it on to you. As I think you know, you tend to have more skill at and a greater inclination toward the small, concrete, limited, and certain. That’s why, in my opinion, it’s rejuvenating for you to periodically exult in and explore what’s large, vague, unlimited, unknown. Now is one of those times.

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 “Look into my eyes. Kiss me, and you will see how important I am.” Poet Sylvia Plath wrote that, and now, in accordance with astrological omens, I’m authorizing you to say something similar to anyone who is interested in you but would benefit from gazing more deeply into your soul and entering into a more profound relationship with your mysteries. In other words, you have cosmic permission to be more forthcoming in showing people your beauty and value.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 In his Anti-Memoirs, author André Malraux quotes a tough-minded priest who served in the French Resistance during World War II. He spent his adult life hearing his parishioners’ confessions. “The fundamental fact is that there’s no such thing as a grown-up person,” the priest declared. Even if that’s mostly true, Pisces, my sense is that it is less true about you right now than it has ever been. In the past months, you have been doing good work to become more of a fully realized version of yourself. I expect that the deepening and maturation process is reaching a culmination. Don’t underestimate your success! Celebrate it!

the construction of a clean and sober transitional housing development, and construction of a family shelter with generous donations from the Rebele family. Scott persisted in finding more effective solutions before driving people off the only space they could find, exactly as Drew Glover did a generation later. No one has been more generous in personal hospitality in their own home than Scott and Kris Kennedy and the other founders of Redwood Nonviolent Community. No one was more articulate or effective in his defense of the respect for people without access to resources and shelter.

At the most recent council meeting I attended, I concluded my remarks with a strong caution: If this recall receives the required signatures for the ballot, it will divide the community of Santa Cruz as nothing else has in a third of a century. This will define the political scene for a generation. Ever so much more than a regular election, this ballot measure will be remembered for the names associated with this single issue, which above all else in our current communal life they considered worthy of overturning the expressed will of the majority of our neighbors and friends.

NEWS BALLOT LINES Alleging racially polarized voting, a Santa Barbara law firm tries to push Santa Cruz toward district elections—and win a $30,000 settlement BY JACOB PIERCE

Speed of Blight

Santa Cruz County is spending new road tax money, but rural residents have barely noticed BY TODD GUILD

O

ne overcast Wednesday, Baylee Whitted is driving the streets surrounding her Aptos Hills home, showing me a ringside view of rutted, potholed roads in stretches chewed to pieces by winter storms. It’s late July, still a few weeks before her kids’ classes start Valencia Elementary and Aptos Middle schools, and months before the next winter rains will begin. But Whitted is already dreading taking her kids to school once the sky does let loose. She’s abandoned her favorite scenic route on Cox Road for Day Valley Road to avoid four washouts, where

the road is barely passable by one car. Whitted said that she has had several near misses with drivers not used to the treacherous roads. Residents have been waiting for years for the county to repair existing storm damage—let alone potholes and cracks—and have repeatedly petitioned Santa Cruz County officials to get going. The response, so far, has been lackluster, Whitted says. “They have an answer for it, but it’s not what anyone wants to hear,” she says. “It’s, ‘We’re waiting on this,’ or, ‘We’re waiting on that.’” Long-term fixes to many of the county’s transportation woes are

covered by local and state funding, notably Measure D and Senate Bill 1, the state’s gas tax law. Storm repairs, however, are largely dependent on federal funding, says county spokesperson Jason Hoppin. With $120 million in outstanding storm damage, Hoppin says gas tax revenue amounts to a drop in that bucket. So, although engineers are using new tax money to improve the county’s infrastructure, rural roads haven’t recovered from storms that struck more than two years ago. “Working with the federal government has been a challenge on the federally funded repairs,” he says. “At a certain level, we >12

Last year, Keshav Kumar was a junior policy analyst at the Santa Cruz County Business Council researching city issues and scouring California news outlets for topics affecting the state’s communities. Kumar spotted a troubling trend. A spate of legal challenges were cropping up against local governments over their election systems. The threats took aim at cities with at-large elections, in which voters may support multiple candidates on their ballots in local city council races. The plaintiffs behind these notices of violation were claiming that such elections diluted the votes of Latino voters and reduced Latino representation, in violation of the California Voting Rights Act. Law firms were challenging cities to implement district elections, which means dividing up a city into geographical voting blocks with one city councilmember per district. Kumar quickly realized that no city had ever prevailed in a legal challenge under the California Voting Rights Act—and when cities fight the lawsuits, instead of settling, they can end up paying fees totaling more than $30,000. Dozens of California cities, including Watsonville, have made the switch either as a result of legal action or under the threat of it. That’s why Kumar applied to join the Charter Amendment Committee, which the Santa Cruz City Council established last year to look at possible changes to the city’s election set-up. One idea for the committee to study: switching to election districts. The Charter Amendment Committee, which had just two meetings, has now essentially landed in government purgatory. The council never officially killed the committee, but the group hasn’t met since November of last year, before Santa Cruz’s new city councilmembers took office. Now, a Santa Barbara-based law firm has hit the city of Santa Cruz with a notice of violation over its at-large elections, alleging that they haven’t adequately represented the town’s Latino community, which makes up 20.6% of the population. >14

GRADED ON A CURVE

Where There’s A Will… By Datta Khalsa, Broker In real estate, it is in the nature of our work that we end up participating in our clients’ life transitions: There are the happy moments like getting married, growing the family, building an investment portfolio and starting or expanding a business. There are the bittersweet ones, like helping your child find a place of their own and returning to an empty nest. And then there are the sad moments such as financial disaster, divorce or the loss of a spouse or loved one. By planning along the way, you can avoid a lot of pitfalls such as potentially huge taxable events and also help minimize friction and even possible fraud between family members and other parties in interest. At such moments in life, it generally pays to have good tax and legal advice, and that is where it is imperative to make sure the person giving you the advice is a truly trusted and qualified expert. My real estate Mastermind networking group recently hosted a prominent local attorney who handles both planning and litigation around real estate assets and how they are acquired, held and/or disbursed, and she gave us revealing insight into the many types of cases she has seen through the years that really drove home the importance of having an estate plan in place.

AUGUST 14-20, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

The essential components of a complete estate plan include a trust, a will, a durable power of attorney and an advance health care directive. If nothing else, she advised that you should execute a will, and while this is best handled by an attorney, she directs people seeking to handle it on their own to the California Statutory Will form the California BAR website, which has provisions specific to California State Law. There is also a relatively new instrument called a Transfer on Death deed that is being used by many people in the absence of a will.

12

She cautioned that it is also good to keep your estate planning documents held in a safe deposit box, and equally important to control who has access to that box. Depending on how contentious things might get, the children are not always the best option, and this is where a fiduciary or a trusted friend might be a good idea instead. With a more complex estate plan, the way title is held or transferred might well be in the name of an LLC, to a revocable or irrevocable trust, a charitable remainder trust, or any number of other entities created to help minimize possible tax consequences or disputes that might otherwise arise. By the time I get called upon to evaluate or handle a property, the person hiring me often ends up being a counsel, a custodian, a fiduciary, a plan sponsor, a trustee or a successor trustee. It has therefore become a key step in the process to ask clients (a) if they have a trusted attorney who can review things to ensure that their intentions are being accurately reflected, and (b) to make sure that they have authority to sign on behalf of the entity they are representing.

The county’s roads—and those in jurisdictions throughout California— are graded on a scale of 1 to 100 with the Pavement Condition Index (PCI), a biennial report by Save California Streets. The report looks at all aspects of road conditions, such as age, potholes and cracking. For the latest iteration, released in October, unincorporated Santa Cruz County scored a 48 on the PCI scale, a solid “F” that places the roads in the “at risk” category, although it’s an improvement from years past. The poor ranking comes largely from 20 years of deferred maintenance, and from lingering damage from 2017 winter storms. Almost two years later, there are still more than 100 projects to complete, says County Public Works Director Matt Machado. The report also shows that the county’s 1,764 miles of roadways have a $453 million backlog of repairs needed to bring them up to snuff. County residents got a glimmer of hope in 2016, when voters approved Measure D, a 30-year half-cent sales tax, which since its inception has raised some $63.8 million countywide for a large variety of transportation infrastructure projects. The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (RTC),

which oversees allocation of Measure D funds, approved a fiveyear spending plan in June. At the state level, officials say the new gas tax will raise roughly $54 billion over the next decade, which is split down the middle between state projects and regional transit agencies. Under the law, Californians saw their per-gallon gas tax increase by 5.6 cents on July 1, making local gas among the most expensive in the nation. Machado says that the county has dedicated its share of S.B. 1 funds, about $4 million per year, to repair the storm damage. Measure D, meanwhile, is helping the county play catch-up on the needed repairs, he says, providing roughly $2.8 million annually for the past two years. “Measure D has nearly tripled our investment in county roads, which is a very good thing,” he says. Second District Santa Cruz County Supervisor Zach Friend calls gas and sales tax increases from Measure D “lifelines,” providing a much-needed shot in the arm for transportation, but he stresses that they’re far from being a panacea. “The challenge for our county is the need is so large, with construction costs escalating daily and conditions deteriorating, that these lifelines will only be able to address a fraction of the growing need,” says Friend, who represents Aptos. “Without them, we would have no stable funding for any sort of work. Even with them, we will

struggle to meet the significant, growing needs of our county’s roads.”

TALE OF THE CITIES In South County, Watsonville Public Works Director Steve Palmisano says the roads are in “OK condition.” The city of 54,000 received a road condition score of 53 out of 100. He says that Measure D and S.B. 1 have tripled the amount that Watsonville receives for road maintenance. The city has received about $1.6 million since the 2017-18 fiscal year. The sales tax is funding five major Watsonville projects between now and 2022, the first and biggest being Freedom Boulevard from Alta Vista to Green Valley Road, for which Measure D is kicking in $445,000 toward a $3 million bill. A little farther north, Capitola Public Works Director Steve Jessberg says the arterial roads in his midcounty town rated a 78 on the PCI index, while the smaller residential streets received a 55 rating. Measure D and S.B. 1, he says, provide an annual income of $300,000 and $165,000, respectively, which together are the city’s only revenue for road and sidewalk repair. But those funds don’t cover the $750,000 needed to maintain Capitola’s streets from storm damage, Jessberg says, leaving city officials to pull from the city’s general fund and seek grants. Still, the state and local funding has been essential for keeping the city in good repair, he says. >16

NUZ BORDERS ON CRUELTY Darios Escobar Lainez paid to bring his daughter María Senaida Escobar Cerritos from El Salvador to live with him in Santa Cruz, as detailed in a Washington Post story earlier this summer. She was shot dead by Mexican police before she reached the U.S. border. Escobar Cerritos chose to return to El Salvador to bury

his daughter, even though he knew that he would likely not be allowed to return to the U.S., despite his Temporary Protected Status. After speaking with the Post, Escobar Cerritos has declined to talk further about the tragedy. But Watsonville resident Edenilson Quintanilla, a onetime refugee from El Salvador, tells Nuz, “It’s a very common story. Usually, it doesn’t end

tragically like this.” He generally blames the U.S. policy of putting intense pressure on Mexico—going back well before President Donald Trump took office—to curb the flow of Central Americans into the U.S. Quintanilla remembers in the early 1980s, when his family was traveling to the U.S. border. His mother was on a bus with her 8-year-old son, Quintanilla’s younger brother,

when police pulled her off and dragged her across a public square. Authorities arrested both Quintanilla’s mom and his brother and threw them in jail, where they remained for a full month before being released and reunited. Quintanilla’s mom, he says, still has emotional scars from the ordeal. “She was torn apart in many different ways,” he says.

BALLOT LINES <11 The threat leaves Santa Cruz with a potentially difficult decision. The already fiscally strained city can settle, pay the fee and decide on a plan to implement district elections. Or it can get ready to go to court—which could result in a lengthy, expensive legal battle—and attempt to be the first city to win such a case. If Santa Cruz were to lose, a judge could demand that Santa Cruz make whatever electoral changes he or she chooses. “I feel like the boy who cried wolf, except that, every time, I really did see a wolf,” says Kumar, who now works as the public affairs coordinator for the California Apartment Association. “And now other

people are seeing the wolf, too.” City Attorney Tony Condotti’s office won’t comment on the pending legal matter. As of press time, the City Council was expected to discuss the item in closed session on Tuesday, Aug. 13. One question going forward is whether district elections would actually improve representation for the Latino community. Pedro Hernandez, senior policy coordinator for nonpartisan voting rights group Fair Vote, says his San Franciscobased organization has studied the demographics of Santa Cruz’s Census tracts. Because the town’s Latino population is spread across various neighborhoods, he says, it would be impossible to draw the boundaries of any

district with a significant Latino electorate. Instead of switching to election districts, Hernandez thinks changing to another system, like ranked-choice voting, might have a bigger impact on improving elections and representation. He hopes that the city of Santa Cruz explores changing to a format like that as part of its settlement. But it wouldn’t only be the City Council’s call to make. Part of a possible decision would be up to a legal team that includes UC Santa Barbara economics lecturer Lanny Ebenstein. Ebenstein is president of the California Voting Rights Project, which is involved with the notice of violation against the city. The Voting Rights Project already issued a legal challenge to Santa Cruz City

Schools that prompted the school district to switch to district elections earlier this year. Ebenstein has a tough time imagining the team would settle for ranked-choice voting, or anything less than an agreement that includes district elections. “I don’t think so. I should never say never about the possibility of any other approach, but the California Voting Rights Act is pretty specific about districts as the remedy,” he says. The deadline for the city to issue its first response to the plaintiff would have come up in about a week, after a 45-day window closed. But because many city employees were on vacation last month, Ebenstein says the legal team has granted an extension, giving Santa Cruz until Sept. 30 to respond. Part of what frustrates Kumar about the fiasco is that the City Council has left the Charter Amendment Committee in limbo. In January, four councilmembers—Chris Krohn, Sandy Brown, Drew Glover, and Vice Mayor Justin Cummings—expressed interest in adding new members to the committee. When their colleagues and some committee members, like Kumar, pushed back against that idea, the council put a stay on any future committee meetings and tabled the item, signaling that it would revisit the concept after a more in-depth discussion about adding new members. The item never came back. Kumar met with both Cummings and Krohn, asking them to reinstate the committee. He didn’t even care anymore if the council added new members, he says. If the body had remained active, Kumar argues that the committee might have already finished important legwork of working through possible election changes—work that City Council and staff may now be forced to rush through on a shortened timeline. If nothing else, Kumar hopes that the council considers officially killing the committee, so that its members can meet again on an informal basis. Hernandez, of FairVote, says it’s “unfortunate” that the committee did not move forward. At this point, the city may not have time to look back. “It’s really up to the City Council right now to decide how it wants to move forward, because it seems like there is a ticking clock,” he says. “That doesn’t mean that all the options are off the table, but it does mean they are going to have to make a decision about their next step soon.”

“They are both huge,” says Jessberg. Among future improvements will be a citywide repaving next year, with a focus on 41st Avenue. With a PCI of 69, the city of Santa Cruz boasts some of the best roads in the county. Assistant Public Works Director Chris Schneiter gives credit to a previous measure, approved by Santa Cruz voters in 2006. “That’s been a consistent source of funds,” Schneiter says. Measure D has pumped an additional $1.2 million into its transportation coffers for each of the past two years. And with about $1 million from S.B. 1, the city has doubled the amount it puts into paving. The city of Santa Cruz spent $2.7 million reconditioning Cedar Street, and will soon open bids to repair Water Street and River Street. In Scotts Valley, Public Works Director Daryl Jordan says that the Santa Cruz Mountains city is combining last year’s Measure D funds with this year’s to pay for several street improvement projects. The city receives $270,000 annually in Measure D funds, and about $215,000 annually from S.B. 1. Scotts Valley is now opening bids for an ambitious series of road overlay, surfacing and sealing projects, including for Granite Creek Road and Scotts Valley Road. Jordan estimates that Measure D and SB 1 combined have boosted the city’s roads funds by 80%.

The county’s highway corridors are taking 25% of Measure D funds, with $14.1 million this year dedicated to upgrades and improvements. The measure provided more than $694,000 for the Highway 9 corridor since 2016, and is pitching in funding for a variety of Highway 1 improvements. Measure D promised its biggest slice to local roads. But for Whitted in the Aptos Hills, and for many other rural residents, 2016 campaign promises bring cold comfort. “The piece where it’s supposed to go to repair our roads—we don’t see it,” she says. “I don’t see where that money is being used.”


IF YOU SEE KIDS,

SLOW DOWN. Did you know that children are limited in their ability to make safe traffic decisions? • Kids have difficulty placing sound like the sirens and engines of approaching vehicles. • Kids have trouble assessing the speed of oncoming cars. • Kids are often single-minded and may dart into traffic when chasing a ball or playing tag. So take extra care to look out for children in school zones, residential areas and near playgrounds and parks. And please, if you see kids, slow down. It’s the Street Smarts thing to do.

As what may be the country’s first ‘hammock cafe’ opens in Santa Cruz, party people who reject alcohol and drugs are finding a new high in herbal elixirs BY GEORGIA JOHNSON

W

Trainer moved to Santa Cruz a few years ago from Ohio, and Grant has lived here for eight years. They decided to open the hammock cafe in the former Homeless Garden Project building more than a year ago to serve herbal elixirs sourced from around the world, plus 11th Hour Coffee, bone broth, miso soup, and acai bowls. I’d never heard of many of the menu options at the new café, but all of them are derived naturally from plants. Roxa is opening sometime this month, pending final city approvals. Sobriety can mean a number of things for different people (legal definitions aside), from complete substance abstinence to a moratorium on alcohol or many gray areas in between. I’ve met sober people that microdose mushrooms multiple times a day. Sobriety is what you make it, and that’s especially true at new-wave hospitality businesses like Roxa, where even though alcohol is off the menu that doesn’t mean you can’t leave feeling good. “It’s totally accepting here to be sober in Santa Cruz, but at the same time, the only social opportunities for young people are at night, because everyone works during the day,” Trainer says. “Where do you go at night? To the bar. So people develop this dependency on drinking, sometimes without even realizing it. As a sober person, I don’t have anywhere to go at night to hang out with the people that I love.” Roxa will fill a niche similar to Melo Melo Kava Bar on Pacific Avenue, which prides itself on being a place for those who are sober to socialize and relax without the pressure of drinking alcohol, or the culture that comes

alking back to work, I think I’m high on something other than life. But it’s not alcohol or drugs. I’ve just visited Roxa, Santa Cruz’s first alchemy hammock cafe, where I tried kola nut powder dissolved in water and powered pine pollen—both naturally derived substances aimed at enhancing the quality of life and wellness. Both ingredients are simple enough. The kola nut is used to flavor sodas like Coca-Cola, or as a supplement. Pine pollen is the same pollen that’s in the air. But the combined effect was that of an intense caffeine high coupled with a sense of relaxation and euphoria. (I don’t drink coffee particularly often, so it wasn’t surprising that I was a bit more “altered” than the average person.) “When you drink some of these herbal teas and elixirs, you feel like complete strangers are family. In small doses, they are beneficial,” Roxa owner Michael Trainer says. “They can become a problem. It’s not something you’d want to do all the time, but they are much better for you than alcohol.” Trainer and his partner, Jazmin Grant, are sober—they don’t drink or take drugs. Instead, they look to herbal teas and elixirs, powered by the kinds of herbs I sampled, to get a more natural and healthy high. “For me, if you are using something that gives you an extreme high to cope with your emotional problems, that is not sobriety,” Trainer says. “Sobriety is coping with the natural mechanisms that you already have.”

<19 with it. Melo Melo sells CBD drinks and kava—a drink derived from the kava root, originally enjoyed by Pacific Islanders, which suppresses anxiety and stimulates socialization. Kava is also for sale in New Leaf and Staff of Life. “You can get it at the salon down the street,” Grant says. But unlike Melo Melo, Grant and Trainer take a different approach to food and wellness at Roxa, which revolves around myriad herbal goods that can replicate the effects—if sometimes only slightly—of alcohol and other substances. “Coffee is an herb. Everyone consumes it every day, and no one thinks twice about the fact that it is an herb. Alcohol—the word comes from alchemy—is an elixir. These are things that we consume every day,” Trainer says. “The mission behind this type of herbalism is to bring people together who are strangers and make them feel as comfortable as possible without having to be inebriated, without poisoning themselves to have a conversation.” Roxa will start off serving five

to seven herbal elixirs, including their “Truth Serum,” a mixture of ashwagandha, tribulus, shatavari, and pine pollen and honey. “It’ll make you spill your guts,” Grant says. “Shatavari and tribulus are aphrodisiacs, but not like Viagra. It’ll just increase your circulation.” Alongside the truth serum, there will also be what Grant calls “the Vessel.” “It is used for creativity and inspiration. Leonardo DiVinci and Michaelangelo used it on a regular basis,” she says. “It has rue, bacopa and acuama in it. Colors start to pop on the walls and stuff.” Another elixir is called “Dapper Absolem,” named after the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland. This elixir is smokeable. “We take a smoking gun and light herbs and inject the glass with smoke and cap it off,” Trainer says. “It’s a body relaxant.” Lastly, they will be serving Mercury Oil, a drink that’s sourced from the Korean Demilitarized Zone. “That drink is crazy. You can feel your head pumping blood,” Grant says. “It’s 102 unique herbs harvested from the

DMZ that’s black-fermented for five years,” Trainer says. “It’s virtually untouched by humans, and nature thrives. It’s an exotic, nutritional luxury that’s hard to find.” The team at Roxa imports their herbs from all over the world, seeking the highest quality and consistency. Trainer says he learned about the benefits of superfoods and herbal elixirs to support the microbiome from online research, but also after coming to Santa Cruz. In particular, after working at Kiva. “I was immersed. I was literally sitting in a hot tub surrounded by a bunch of naked people singing songs all the time,” Trainer laughs. “Hippie central.” At Roxa, everything is intentional, from the reclaimed wood to the petrified moss. Even the flooring is infused with Black Tourmaline—a stone known for it’s positive, grounding energy—and 150 herbal essences. “Our artist got so high when he was putting the tourmaline into the floor,” Grant laughs. “He seemed drunk.” After more than a year of renovations, including the addition of scaffolding, new flooring and room sectioning, the couple collected a fair amount of antique chemistry sets and unique drinkware to accompany their menu of herbal elixirs, coffee and acai bowls. Their elixir bar looks like a steampunk medicine cabinet of Victor Frankenstein, plus some LED lights. “We are talking about things that create fire and sparks, dry ice and color changing liquids,” Trainer says. “We are sandwiched between two of the most popular bars in the strip—Abbott Square and Pour—and there are a lot of people who want to be part of the scene but don’t drink alcohol. So we want to make it fun for them, too.” Popularized by its reputation as a superfood, acai has skyrocketed to the top of the millennial popularity list alongside avocado toast and gourmet doughnuts. But that’s not why Grant and Trainer put it on the menu. Acai, a tart berry native to South America, is rich in antioxidants and low in sugar. It’s particularly high in

resveratrol, which Trainer takes everyday, noting that it prevents the hardening of internal organs caused by a high-sugar and high-fat diet. “Acai has changed my life. I could eat an acai bowl every day. It’s so good for you,” Trainer says. “I have seen great benefits from resveratrol. We have the resveratrol extract, which we will be mixing with our acai, so you’ll get a boost of it.” Then there are the hammocks. Sourced from organic cotton and rubberwood, there won’t be many seats in the house. The hammock cafe idea is originally from Japan, where there are a number of hammock cafes, including Tokyobased Mahika Mano. Trainer says he got the idea from Mahika Mano, though he hasn’t been there—he says he just really likes hammocks. In the U.S., there has been talk of hammock cafes, including one that nearly opened in San Francisco’s Mission District in 2014 that fell victim to a lack of funding. Roxa may just be the country’s first official hammock cafe—or one that’s searchable online at least. “Our beliefs are based on the microbiome, so diverse fibers,” Trainer says. “Health comes first through diet and exercise, but also supplemental herbal remedies and elixirs which facilitate social confidence.” Aside from a diversity of fiber intake through fruits and vegetables, Grant and Trainer consume tonics daily for the nutrients. They aren’t consuming social lubricants for more than a few times a week. “In the beginning, people weren’t sure about the cafe idea,” Trainer says. “But now people are stoked. It’s flattering how excited people get.” But these elixirs derived from herbs can also be overdone. All of the drinks are designed so that customers only need one to feel the effects. Just like alcohol or coffee, it’s possible to overdose. The elixirs range from strong to mild, and all of the baristas are trained to cut people off. “What we are doing, it’s very niche,” Grant says. “There are probably under 10 other places in the U.S. that are doing what we are.”

Forever Fit How Santa Cruz seniors are staying active, even into their 100s BY HUGH MCCORMICK

J

oanna Hildebrant’s Fitbit chirps as she saunters along. The 96-year-old with bright eyes and an easy smile tries to walk 4,000 to 5,000 steps each day— and she is well on her way this warm and sunny summer afternoon. Before moving to Santa Cruz 14 years ago, Hildebrant led a life of service, working with orphans on the streets of Mexico City. The spry and active senior is currently a resident of Dominican Oaks, an upscale independent living facility in

Live Oak. Her goal is to live to 100. “Moving is key to remaining fit. I really feel that movement is the most important thing for senior citizens,” says Hildebrant. “Nobody is too old to exercise.” For six years, Hildebrant has risen at 5:30 in the morning, five days a week, to swim laps, stretch, and exercise at Simpkins Swim Center. An admitted morning person, she drives herself to the pool, where her body is in constant motion. “My body is never still for

the hours I’m at the pool,” says Hildebrant proudly. “I’m constantly active. I walk for 20 minutes, then do leg exercises at the edge of the pool for 20 minutes. Finally, I swim and move my body for 20 minutes. This, and eating right, just makes me feel healthy.” After a light breakfast of cereal and fruit, and a brief walk, Hildebrant attends Tai Chi, Mindfulness and Qi Gong classes during the day. The combination of physical and mental exercise gives her an inner peace, calmness and clarity that makes her life easy and enjoyable. “Some people have limitations, but they can always do certain things,” she maintains. “A positive attitude is key.” Debra Routly, the executive director of Dominican Oaks, worked

in high-tech before studying health and fitness, and eventually becoming a personal trainer. She says that one of her main focuses at Dominican Oaks is the fitness of active seniors. “Our seniors aren’t just sitting around knitting,” she says. “They’re vibrant. And it’s not just about physical activity any more. Mental exercises keep them sharp, alert and full of life.” Routly offers her residents daily balance exercises, strength training, stretching, yoga, Zumba, Qi Gong, and Tai Chi classes. In addition, she helps them take advantage of the long list of PEP classes offered through Dignity Health and Dominican Hospital. A team of drivers shuttles a devoted contingent of seniors to Simpkins Swim Center and area gyms every day of the week. “Fitness classes are so important. A lot of our residents go to them every morning,” says Routly. “Most people will have breakfast and go straight to their exercise class. It’s necessary for them to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. More than 70% of our residents attend a class on a regular basis.” As the world’s population gets older—one-fifth of the population of the developed world was 60 or older in 2000, and by 2050 this number is expected to rise to a full one-third —it’s more important than ever to develop effective fitness programs for seniors. Regular exercise can lead to improvements in some of the greatest challenges older adults face: Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Just a small amount of exercise will release endorphins that enhance a senior’s mood and lead to a decrease in anxiety and depression. Champion ballroom dancer Beverly Martin describes herself as a “happy, fit and healthy 82-yearold.” The native Santa Cruzan has been dancing competitively with her 84-year-old husband Gene for more than eight years, attending five twohour dance classes every week at the Palomar Ballroom in downtown Santa Cruz. “A lot of people can’t believe that

<25 my husband Gene and I are still ballroom dancing, and are able to move like we do,” says Martin. “If you’re a person who really loves what you do, though—like we do—the regular aches and pains don’t bother you much. You just feel happier, and you feel no pain because you love doing it. It’s magical.” Martin knows that most men and women her age don’t get enough exercise. When they stop moving, their bodies gradually lose their viscosity and flexibility as tendons shrink and become tighter. “If you are scared about getting older, something is bothering you, or you just are feeling sad, exercise— dancing, specifically—will take it all away,” says Martin. “You just want to dance. Once you start to move, the energy starts to flow throughout your body. Your entire body and your mind. It carries you throughout the day. Seniors need that.” Martin’s dance guru, 46-year-old Zak Bauman, has been teaching senior citizens the art of dance for the past 22 years. A former professional modern dancer, Bauman tells me that her daily classes provide elderly adults far more than exercise: there’s also a huge social component. Her class draws 12-18 regulars five days a week, and “everything they do revolves around their dance schedule,” she says. Several studies have shown that ballroom dance is a highly effective tool to ward off Alzheimer’s because it involves three key components: social, physical and intellectual stimulation. “If you don’t use it you’re going to lose it,” Bauman tells me. “Balance, fitness, cognitive sharpness. There’s a huge mental component to social

dancing. Anyone can do it at any age. The first and hardest thing is just walking through the door.” Routly also urges patience in finding the right workout. “Exercise needs to be something that doesn’t overwhelm us,” she says. “It’s not a one-shoe-fits-all thing. Some people can do vigorous exercise and others shouldn’t. It’s personal and with safety in mind. You want to start slow and take it easy. Condition your body before you go gung-ho into it.” Sitting on a plush couch surrounded by walls decorated with plaques, pictures and awards, another Dominican Oaks resident gives me the lowdown on how seniors can maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. “Exercise! Just do it. Never look back. Always look forward,” says 101-year-old Faye Alexander. “And always have a positive attitude.” The vivacious and energetic Alexander played golf at Pasatiempo for 68 years, and has been attending regular water aerobics classes at Simpkins Swim Center for nearly 25. “For me, with water aerobics, it’s like feeling I’m heading back into the embryonic sack. I’m reborn,” she says. “I can do things that I just can’t do out of the water. It keeps me going. I’m 101, but I feel young all the time.” Exercise makes Alexander feel physically and mentally alive, and has enhanced her social life immensely. She’s quick and witty as she explains the stories behind the smiling faces in her many framed photos. “Fitness gives seniors like me new life. If you just sit and stare into space, you’re going to be a ninny,” says Alexander with a wise smile. “Don’t be a ninny.”

Let this be the year you put yourself first. It’s that time of year when we get motivated to achieve our goals. While we often include goals that are physical – like going to the gym – what about our mental and emotional health? Are you taking care of the inside, as well as the outside? Is it, ‘One day…’ or ‘Day one?’ The decision is yours. One of the most daunting journeys we face is discovering who we are, what we need, what we want, what we deserve –and how to get there. No matter how large or small your struggles may feel to you, you don’t have to face them alone.

Opening as a penetrating study of tragic jealousy, the play turns on its axis halfway through and becomes a robust pastoral comedy. And the fairy-tale ending is one of the rarest of closures in all of Shakespeare. the trickster pickpocket Autolycas. His rollicking scenes crafted the dissonant shadings Shakespeare suggests. Gilmore’s Mr. Bennett also created the calm center of Pride and Prejudice, and it was a pleasure to watch him let loose and captivate the entire opening night house of Winter’s Tale. His punning repartee with the Shepherd (Tommy A. Gomez) and his son Clown (a winning Adrian Zamora) helped move the play toward its resolution. Kudos to scenic designer Dipu Gupta, whose large circular opening on the back wall allowed glimpses of an enormous, scenic moon, whose movements and color changes helped to tell us the passing of day to night, and winter to summer. The Winter’s Tale is given added charm by the presence of a trio of actors all named Peakes, who are in fact husband, wife and son (Owen)— playing husband Leontes, wife Hermione, and their son Mamillius. Ian Merrill Peakes, who steals this season’s Pride and Prejudice, is stylish, resourceful and fierce as Leontes’ inferno of paranoid jealousy. Directorial re-tuning might help infuse the ending with the rich, ironic power the play’s text demands. Contemporary costuming may update the look of a classic play, but it can’t help us understand the text, or heart of the play if the actors don’t believe (or comprehend) what they’re saying. Still, The Winter’s Tale brims with eloquence, high tragedy and easy comedy—which is a lot for any night’s entertainment under moonlight. You owe it to yourself to take in this rare chance to see one of the Bard’s most unusual and controversial works. ‘The Winter’s Tale’ runs through Sept. 1 at the Grove in Delaveaga Park, 501 Upper Park Rd., Santa Cruz. santacruzshakespeare.org.

The play’s driving theme echoes Othello. King Leontes of Sicily (Ian Merrill Peakes) and his old childhood friend King Polixenes of Bohemia (Lindsay Smiling) have been enjoying a long overdue visit together in Leontes’ court. As the play opens, Polixenes is bidding his friend farewell, having stayed nine months away from his own court in Bohemia. Leontes begs him to stay longer, to no avail. But when Leontes’ wife Hermione (Karen Peakes) asks, Polixenes relents. And herein lies the rub. Leontes suddenly finds himself consumed with jealousy and suspects that his pregnant wife Hermione might just be carrying the child of Polixenes, “he that wears her like a medal hanging about his neck.” Jealousy, spewed forth in Peakes’ spellbinding asides to the audience, turns to obsession, and soon Hermione is banished, Polixenes flees for his life, and Hermione’s newborn baby daughter is abandoned to the fates. In a dramatic time shift used nowhere else in Shakespeare, 16 years has gone by when the second half of the play begins. (Mega-kudos to Patty Gallagher, whose panache gives clarity throughout.) We’re now in the company of shepherds in Bohemia, where a 16-year-old beauty is about to be engaged to the king’s son. You can see where this is going. In Bohemia, things are as jolly as Sicily has been tragic. And played in repertory, the cast has some real fun with their double roles, moving from the noble court to the countryside with relish. The jarring eruption of a DJ dance party, however, does little to advance any understanding of the comedic plot twist, no matter how much light entertainment there is in the original text. Reviving audience focus with tall tales and song is the insanely talented Allen Gilmore as

HE STILL BELIEVES Tim Capello, whose brief shirtless cameo in ‘The Lost Boys’ became an iconic cult-movie moment, plays the Blue Lagoon on Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Lost Boy Found AUGUST 14-20, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

The Sexy Sax Man from Santa Cruz’s No. 1 cult movie plays solo at Blue Lagoon BY AARON CARNES

32

I

n 1987, saxophonist Tim Cappello was in Santa Cruz for two days to film what would become one of the most famous scenes in the cult classic Lost Boys. He played the shirtless, oiled-up sexy sax man who soulfully sang “I Still Believe” while rocking his instrument hard at the Boardwalk, surrounded by flames and mystified teenagers. As Cappello walked around town during his down time, it struck him how fitting Santa Cruz was for the film. “It’s a hippie slacker town. Everybody was tie-dyed out and stoned. People are just coming up to me and chatting,” Cappello says. “I was like, ‘Wow, I’m walking around in the script.’”

That was the last time he set foot in Santa Cruz. The shoot was a brief vacation for him in his otherwiserigorous touring schedule playing sax in Tina Turner’s band. It was a fun two days, he says, and he deliberately made his character kitsch. “Purple and pink tie-dyed pants that are as tight as yoga pants. Big Doc Martens, lots of chains, and all greased up. That’s not what you do when you want to be Guns N’ Roses,” Cappello says. “It was definitely not my intention to be sexy.” On Wednesday, Aug. 14, Cappello returns to Santa Cruz, this time to play the Blue Lagoon. It’s part of his first-ever solo tour, and he’s literally alone, with not even a crew

member to help haul gear. “I was on tour with Tina for 15 years. Now I’m in my little Corolla stopping at every Motel 6 from New York to L.A.,” Cappello says. “This tour is the most fun I’ve ever had with music. I’m not a big fan of glitz and glamour.” Cappello has been playing to rooms of 150 to 200 people. He plays sax and sings over a backing track, in front of TV screens with custom-made video collages designed to entertain his rabid cult fanbase. He’s playing music off his debut solo album Blood On The Reed, which he released last year. It’s made up of fun dance songs that capture the era he came from, when sax was an important

component to bands of all genres. “Bruce Springsteen. Huey Lewis. They all had one,” Cappello says. “I thought it was dead forever. I’m really shocked I’m starting to get calls for session work again.” Cappello has been in the spotlight again the last few years. Last year, he made a guest appearance on Michelle Wolf’s Netflix show The Break for a bit called “Saxophone Apologies.” He also played saxophone on synthwave band Gunship’s 2018 single “Dark All Day,” which has nearly garnered 3 million views on YouTube. The cult around Lost Boys only grew as the years passed, especially in the age of the internet. Love for the sexy sax man scene skyrocketed. Saturday Night Live made a digital short in 2010 where John Hamm played a Tim Cappello character named Sergio. Cappello was honored to be the obvious inspiration for the sketch. Then, in 2015, the Mad Monster Party horror convention asked Cappello to make an appearance. He accepted, and was shocked to see the overwhelming fandom that existed for him. That got him plugged into the convention circuit, and gave him the confidence to do something he always wanted to do: record a solo album. As the center of attention, he could be as flamboyant as he wanted to be—his solo show is a lot of fun. With Turner, it was a tug of war. She wanted her band to be over the top, but Cappello was often too far over the top for her. He could never predict when she’d ask him to tone down his outfits. “She bought me my first codpiece,” he says. “She said, ‘This would be a fun thing for you to wear.” Now he can dress how he wants and play his songs. “I cannot get over how much people love it. There’s a roar that comes at me that just physically knocks me back,” Cappello says. “The smiles on people’s faces are those enormously wide, ugly smiles. I’ve never experienced it before.” Tim Capello performs at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Blue Lagoon, 923 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $7. 423-7117.

Landing. Tom was born in London, and came to Santa Cruz sometime around 1990. He took part in the UCSC Farm and Garden apprentice program and made his California home in the woods of Bonny Doon, where he was known as a master washer of windows and a lover of Shakespeare. He was a kind and generous soul, always ready to talk, make new friends, and to share anything that he had. He will be greatly missed. A celebration of Tom’s life will be held on his birthday, Wednesday, Aug. 14. All are welcome and encouraged to bring stories,

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND

LAUREN JUNE Lauren June was struck by something a customer told her when she was waiting tables and dropped some glasses: “Gravity’s been heavier this week.” “I looked up at him and said, ‘That’s a really interesting perspective.’” June says. “It’s comical, but there’s something sweet and sincere about it. I just loved that.” For a while, she tried to write a song with that brilliant line but didn’t get anywhere. Finally, she realized that to do the line justice, she needed a song about her interaction with the customer.

AUGUST 14-20, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“There is an overall kindness to him that drew me in, and knowing so little about someone, but also that feeling of human connection even in those small encounters,” June says.

The song, still untitled, is one of a handful that the local singersongwriter is working on for her debut indie-folk EP, which she hopes will be out in late 2019 or early 2020. Some songs will have drums and bass. Others will be acoustic. June has been playing music her entire life, but it’s mostly been a hobby. About three years ago, she recorded a handful of songs and uploaded them to SoundCloud— haunting folk songs, mostly personal expressions of her internal world. “I always tended to write sad, depressing music,” June says. “I’m a fairly private person except for that one outlet.” AARON CARNES 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $8. 429-6994.

PHIL MARSH Cats may have nine lives, but Phil Marsh has 10. A founding member of freaky Berkeley folk outfit the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band, Marsh spent the ’60s at the bleeding edge of the hippie movement. At the end of the decade, he took part in one of the music industry’s most infamous pranks, when CGSB recorded and released The Masked Marauders, a hoax Dylan/Jagger/Beatles collab album based on a joke review in Rolling Stone. Since then, the Bay native has been a guitarist for Country Joe McDonald and a documentary soundtrack composer.

then Humboldt County seven-piece Diggin’ Dirt is precisely the kind of funk band you’ve been waiting for. Not a single member is wearing the exact same wacky, ’70s-pattern shirts at any given show. We’re talking about a revolution in color! Oh, and they also play pretty spectacular psych-infused, high-energy, deep-funk jams, punctuated with horns and Zach Alder’s squealing, soulful voice as the band’s charismatic front man.

A dexterously swinging guitarist and accomplished rhythm singer with a light, pleasing tone, Pizzarelli has spent much of his career exploring the Cole songbook, starting with his breakthrough 1994 album Dear Mr. Cole. His latest release, 100 Year Salute to Nat King Cole, is a beautifully measured take on a set of songs indelibly associated with the peerless Cole. He’s

joined by bassist Mike Karnon and the brilliant Australian pianist Konrad Paszkudzki. ANDREW GILBERT 7 p.m. Kuumbwa Jazz, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $42 adv/$47.25 door. 427-2227.

TUESDAY 8/20 INDIE

THE PALMS Nights are balmy in L.A., and the air thrums with unmistakable energy. That could be the sheer number of cars rumbling along the mazes of asphalt, or maybe it’s the result of throngs of people ready for anything to happen at any moment. L.A. has a touch of dreamscape magic, like a good pop song that comes alive with the windows open, even if you have to smell the dump truck in front of you. The Palms has a similar flavor in its indie-pop tunes; the joy of drifting along, full of potential, weightless above the refuse, briefly oblivious to the encroaching blight. AB 9 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $12. 423-1338.

9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $20. Information: catalystclub.com. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22, to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | AUGUST 14-20, 2019

’60s-drenched rock at frat parties, often butt-naked. They grew up and put on some clothes but still bust out catchy, twangy garage-rock for crowds—infectious and fun, with some serious chops, and an undeniable affinity for the time when brown-leather-fringe vests were a thing. It’s classy party music: rowdy callbacks, tambourines and spooky organ riffs, but so well polished you’d think they’d never rolled into a frat party nude. AMY BEE

Jamaican reggae artist Protoje was destined to be a reggae star. His mother Lorna Bennett topped the Jamaican charts twice in the early ’70s; her biggest hit was the chilled out “Breakfast in Bed.” Protoje’s father was a calypso star in Saint Vincent. Fast forward to 2005, when their son—the appropriately named Protoje—entered the world of reggae with one foot in the classic roots tradition, and the other in the more contemporary dancehall sound. He’s got several albums and hit singles under his name, but what’s most important is the infectious shows he puts on.

FILM

‘HERE’ HE IS Mike Wallace in ‘Mike Wallace is Here,’ a documentary comprised entirely of archival footage.

Press the Issue AUGUST 14-20, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Journalism matters in bio doc ‘Mike Wallace Is Here’ BY LISA JENSEN

46

B

ill O’Reilly calls him “the master of nailing.” Barbra Streisand is more succinct—“You’re a son of a bitch,” she purrs. So it’s hard to imagine someone less likely to be caught selling peanut butter in TV commercials than Mike Wallace. The intrepid TV journalist and co-host of 60 Minutes is best known for dogged, on-air interviews that struck terror into the hearts of his subjects. But Kinescope flashbacks of the youthful Wallace pitching the sponsor’s products are among the more surprising moments in Avi Belkin’s documentary Mike Wallace Is Here. Belkin cobbles together this backstory about a footloose youth who finds himself entranced by

the new mid-century medium of television. Footage of Wallace and TV growing up together as he eventually pioneers the art and craft of the live televised interview have historical and pop-cultural value, as do the many excerpts from his decades of interviewing the rich and infamous: Salvador Dali, Frank Lloyd Wright, Bette Davis, Ayatollah Khomeni, Vladimir Putin, and a puffy, young Donald Trump. But for all the vagaries in Wallace’s career, and the variety of his interview subjects, the movie never establishes its own viewpoint. It remains a random collection of clips, many fascinating in their own right, that are never quite shaped into a larger picture or more cohesive theme. I wish Belkin had dug a little

deeper to get the full story. Hailing from Brookline, Massachusetts, and so badly acnescarred in his teens that he figured he had “a great face for radio,” Wallace started out in that medium as a staff announcer and pitchman. But with the advent of television, he switched allegiance; he sold everything from soap to cigarettes to cosmetics on the air, hosted game shows, and was routinely thrust into minor acting roles (as documented in a treasure trove of those vintage Kinescopes). In 1956, he came up with the idea for Night Beat, a late-night interview show featuring subjects like the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan (fulminating in his full pointyheaded satin Klan robes), gangster Mickey Cohen, and Rod Serling. This

eventually morphed into The Mike Wallace Interview, a program that engendered so many libel lawsuits the network finally had to shut it down. But while the show was dead, it gave birth to a new TV icon in allowing its host to “become” Mike Wallace. Although he went briefly back to pitching Revlon lipstick, he decided he wanted to be a serious reporter, traveling the world in search of stories, until he landed at CBS—in the august company of Walter Cronkite, Eric Severeid and Edward R. Murrow. After a few years at the network, Wallace and producer Don Hewitt co-created the concept of TV news magazine 60 Minutes, which debuted in 1968. Concerned that he didn’t have the same hard news credentials as his new colleagues, Wallace was determined to ask the hard questions instead. We see tantalizing bits of Wallace coaxing an eyewitness account of the My Lai massacre from a Vietnam soldier, making cold-fish John Erlichman visibly sweat, and sparring with Richard Nixon and Manuel Noriega in between showbiz celebs like Johnny Carson and Shirley MacLaine. Meanwhile, attempts by 60 Minutes cohort Morley Safer and others to interview Wallace himself are largely futile, as he rebuffs questions he doesn’t like—“Why would you ask me that?” “That’s a stupid question”— or simply does not respond. Belkin never really discovers the man behind the public persona. Nor does he find (in what must have been hundreds of hours of footage) any particular “aha!” moment with an interview subject that would cap Wallace’s legacy. But his take on the evolution of modern journalism fascinates. Oriana Fallaci tells Wallace she’s not a reporter but a historian, as “a journalist who writes history as it happens.” And a montage of newsbashing from Spiro Agnew to Trump reminds us to never, ever take for granted the privilege of a free press. MIKE WALLACE IS HERE **1/2 (out of four) With Mike Wallace and Morley Safer. A film by Avi Belkin. A Magnolia release. Rated PG-13. 90 minutes.

FILM NEW RELEASES THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE 2 What do these birds have to be angry about anymore? Their ridiculous mobile game has been downloaded more than 3 billion times in 10 years. They already had a terrible animated movie, and because it was an inexplicably huge hit, now they’ve got another one. Calm down, birds! Directed by Thurop Van Orman. Featuring the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Leslie Jones and Bill Hader. (PG) 96 minutes. (SP) BLINDED BY THE LIGHT Just when it looked like Yesterday had the Academy Award for Quirkiest Spin On Our Insatiable Nostalgia For Classic Rock all sewn up (it’s one of those Oscars they pass out during the commercials), along comes Blinded By the Light, about a British-Pakistani Muslim whose teen angst can only be cured by his obsession with the music of Bruce Springsteen. Based on the memoir of journalist Sarfraz Mandoor, this is actually a true story. I mean, so was Yesterday, obviously … Directed by Gurinder Chadha. Starring Viveik Kalra and Hayley Atwell. (PG-13) 117 minutes. (SP)

DAVID CROSBY: REMEMBER MY NAME Oh, don’t worry, new music documentary, I’ll remember David Crosby’s name. The question is: After years of alcohol, cocaine and heroin abuse, does David Crosby remember his name? Directed by A.J. Eaton. (R) 95 minutes. (SP)

47 METERS DOWN: UNCAGED I’ve seen some bad shark movies, but judging from the trailer, this sequel to the surprise low-budget 2017 hit may give them a run for their money. The first one at least had the unusual cage-diving angle, and the intrigue of wondering whether star Mandy Moore was going to melt down on screen. This has four tourists scuba diving in Mayan ruins and encountering a playful narwhal. Just kidding! It’s another murder shark. Directed by Johannes Roberts. Starring Sistine Rose Stallone, Nia Long and Corinne Fox. (PG-13) 89 minutes. (SP) GOOD BOYS Little kids swearing—it never gets old, right? In fact, the makers of Superbad, Sausage

Party and other raunchfests have apparently decided that the littler they are, the funnier it is. And so we have Good Boys, a comedy about 6th graders saying bad words, being wrong about sex, and unknowingly using sex toys. And you thought highconcept comedy was dead. Directed by Gene Stupnitsky. Starring Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams and Will Forte. (R) 89 minutes. (SP) WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE I have been asking this question for years. Now, finally, along comes a movie with the courage to answer it. Writer-director Richard Linklater’s latest follows Cate Blanchett as a mom who rediscovers her creative passions after years of being held back by snot-nosed kids. Co-starring Judy Greer and Kristen Wiig. (PG-13) (SP)

DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD I guess it’s been a long time since I checked in on Dora the Explorer, ’cause now she’s turned into Tomb Raider Jr. and is played by 18-year-old Isabela Moner in this live-action adventure adaptation. What happened to,“I’m the map! The map! The map, the map, the map?” Directed by James Bobin. Co-starring Benicio Del Toro, Danny Trejo and Eva Longoria. (PG) 102 minutes.

THE LION KING To anyone who thought there were no more trees for Disney to shake money out of, I give you what’s being sold as the latest in the company’s series of live-action remakes of hit cartoons. But the thing is, despite the fact that the computergenerated images of its animal cast are photo-realistic, there’s nothing here that’s actually live action, is there? Nope, it’s literally a cartoon remake of a cartoon. Who knew “hakuna matata” actually translates to “milk it for all it’s worth?” Directed by Jon Favreau. Featuring the voices of Donald Glover, John Oliver and James Earl Jones. (PG) 118 minutes. (SP)

THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN What, another dog movie? Aaaaaaah. Oh god, no, please tell me the dog doesn’t narrate the story about his human family, with all kinds of crappy dog wisdom about life and love? I can’t even right now. Please make it stop. Directed by Simon Curtis. Starring Milo Ventimiglia, Amanda Seyfried and the voice of Kevin Costner.(PG) 109 minutes. (SP)

THE FAREWELL We all know what this year’s biggest blockbuster was. What? Avengers: Endgame? Never heard of it. No, obviously I’m talking about The Farewell, which made more money at the domestic box office this year than any other film, including that one with the costume people you mentioned. Now, of course, this is only if you’re talking about per-theater average— The Farewell opened in four theaters with a record $87,833 haul per screen (Avengers’ was $76,601 across 4,662 theaters). But still, it’s kind of crazy that an art-house comedy-drama whose biggest star is Awkwafina from Crazy Rich Asians is breaking any kind of box-office record. Writer-director Lulu Wang’s story of a Chinese-American woman who travels back to China to visit her grandmother with a terminal diagnosis (which the family has decided to hide) is also a hit with critics, earning a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. (PG) 98 minutes. (SP)

THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE Quién es más macho? Certainly not the sad-sack protagonist in Riley Stearns’ dark, subversive black comedy that skewers the popular notion of “manhood,” and the ridiculous lengths to which some go to pursue it. Jesse Eisenberg stars as a nerdy little guy who suffers humiliation and decides to reshape himself as a tough guy. Determined to stop being a victim who’s afraid of everything, he enrolls at a karate school run by a fierce alpha male (Alessandro Nivola), telling him,“I

FAST AND FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS AND SHAW HOBBS: Me played by Rock! Me hate you, Shaw! SHAW: Me played by Jason Statham! Me hate you, Rock … I mean, Hobbs! BRIXTON LORE: Hello, I’m the villain in this movie. I’m played by Idris Elba.

NOW PLAYING

MAIDEN This documentary about Tracy Edwards, a charter-boat cook who became the captain of the first all-female crew to take on the Whitbread Round the World Race, takes place in a dark time, long ago, when the world was horribly sexist. Okay, it was 1989, and yeah, sexism hasn’t really gotten much better. All the more reason to enjoy these lady sailors seriously kicking everyone’s ass. (PG) 97 minutes. (SP) MIKE WALLACE IS HERE Reviewed this issue. Directed by Avi Belkin. (PG-13) 90 minutes. (SP) ONCE UPON A TIME … IN HOLLYWOOD There was a lot of outrage when Quention Tarantino announced his next movie would include the story of the Manson murders. Apparently, people thought it might glorify Manson, a concern that the casting of beady-eyed Damon “Let Me Be Your Creepy Guy” Herriman in the role should have allayed. Also, this is the filmmaker who killed off Hitler and gave Southern slave owners their comeuppance— fulfilling revenge fantasies is kinda his thing. It’ll be interesting to see how he works this true-crime angle into a fictional story of over-the-hill TV actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) in the fading days of

1960s Hollywood. Co-starring Margot Robbie, Kurt Russell and Al Pacino. (R) 161 minutes. (SP) SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK If you haven’t traumatized your kids in a while, why not take them to this adaptation of the 1980s and 1990s series of horror tales that thrilled macabre middleschoolers and angered Christian parents everywhere? What’s really scary is how adults can’t think of any way to tap into juvenile scares besides recycling their own obsession with meta-entertainment. So, like the Goosebumps movies, this is another film where the stories in the “cursed” book it’s based on start coming true. Directed by Andre Ovredai. Starring Zoe Margaret Coletti and Michael Garza. (PG-13) 111 minutes. (SP) THEM THAT FOLLOW If you’ve been thinking,“Boy, do I wish there was a movie that combined my love of thrillers with my possibly unhealthy interest in Appalachian snake-handling churches,” I’m happy to say that your day has finally come. Directed by Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage. Starring Gerald Butler, Olivia Colman and Kaitlyn Dever. (R) 98 minutes. (SP) YESTERDAY Imagine if the Beatles had never existed. In his antic and audacious new movie Yesterday, director Danny Boyle poses an even gnarlier idea: suppose the Beatles had existed, but then suddenly disappeared from the collective memory of basically everyone on Earth—except one guy? Imagine the potential for comedy (not to mention plunder and exploitation) if that guy were a struggling singer-songwriter who could take his pick from the entire song catalog of the Fab Four, certain that no one in the audience had ever heard of John, Paul, George, or Ringo. Scripted by veteran Richard Curtis (Four Weddings And A Funeral; Love Actually), for the ever genre-bouncing Boyle, Yesterday is a sly, persuasive morality play about the wages and nature of success dressed up as a popcultural comedy. It’s also entertaining as hell, especially for those of us who do remember The Beatles, thank you very much. Starring Himesh Patel and Lily James (PG-13) 116 minutes. (LJ)

Latest winemaker dinner to showcase abalone, Albariño and more BY CHRISTINA WATERS

I

n the gorgeous Aptos dining room of Persephone, Chef Cori Gouge-Ayer will prepare a multicourse meal to pair with five distinctive bottlings from Windy Oaks Estates at an Aug. 22 winemaker dinner. Those new to the concept owe themselves a chance to sample a series of wines from the steady hand of winemaker Jim Schultze, which will be coupled with foods especially created to harmonize with selected varietals. The sequence of flavors and often-spectacular tuning of sensory ideas that join the recipes and the wines make for a delicious learning experience. Those

who are veterans—and fans—of the winemaker dinner format won’t want to miss this one. Here’s why. Dinner begins with Watermelon Gazpacho paired with a Windy Oaks Bastide La Combe 2017 Rosé, before continuing on with a linguine created of tender abalone, pancetta and smoked paprika. With this course, Jim Schultze will pour the 2016 Estate Chardonnay. Then comes a duck confit with candy cap mushrooms joined by Windy Oaks’ “Diane’s Block” Estate Pinot Noir 2017. (I can practically taste that duck/ Pinot combination right now.) The second entrée is a pork loin roulade

stuffed with rosemary-roasted figs and served with caramelized onionfennel farro and balsamic glaze. This tour de force will be paired with a special release barrel-fermented Estate Pinot Noir 2016. Dessert of a floating island with saffron meringue and pomegranate creme Anglaise comes with a festive Windy Oaks Sparkling Albariño 2015. That’s an adventurous tasting journey starting at 6 p.m., priced at $150 per person, all inclusive. The chef is a Santa Cruz native who, along with her sommelier brother Alex Potter, orchestrates the restaurant’s winemaker dinner

series. Windy Oaks wines are well known locally and nationally, and proprietors Jim and Judy Schultze are savvy participants in these customized events. “Jim and I both feel that winemaker dinners provide the opportunity for the general public to meet the winemaker in an intimate setting,” says Judy Schultze. They can also “show how the right wine paired with the right food enhances both.” In putting this event together, Gouge-Ayer and Potter bring team members for a trip to the vineyard to taste the wines, tour the operation and get to know the winemakers. “This is our second dinner with Windy Oaks,” says Potter, “and we have a great working relationship, as well as an excellent understanding of their wine and winemaking philosophy.” Potter explains that in putting together these labor-intensive events, “We like to taste through most of a winery’s offerings and then narrow it down to five choices. We keep in mind that we want to put together a comprehensive meal with a certain flow and progression for our guests to follow. Once we have decided which wines to use, we will often re-taste the wines the next day and discuss more ideas for dishes we think will accentuate the qualities of the wine we have decided to highlight. From there, it usually takes another week or so of ironing out details and checking to make sure we can locally source the ingredients we need.” Potter says that what’s available locally, and seasonally, “has a huge influence on each menu. Often during our process, someone will have an idea for a dish we all think would be a great pairing, but a key ingredient is not in season or is unavailable locally.” The farmers market also supplies plenty of food for inspiration for the chef and sommelier. An ambitious multi-course menu paired with wines from one of our very top winemaking estates—plus the presence of the winemaker—make this dinner one not to be missed.

indy Oaks Estate’s Bastide La Combe is an eye-catching color, verging on deep watermelon. Mouthwatering and flavorsome, this is a Rosé full of spunk and body. Named after a lovely guesthouse in the Provence region of France, where proprietors Jim and Judy Schultze have spent “several idyllic vacations enjoying the local Rosés,” this delightful 2017 Monterey Rosé ($24) is made in the Provencal style using locally grown Grenache. (This grape is often the main ingredient in some of the best Rosés from France and Spain.) “Bastide” means farmhouse in French, and “La Combe” owes its name to the incline of vineyards and forests, say the Schultzes. In honor of their own hilly estate in Corralitos, surrounded by redwoods, they have given this Rosé the name Bastide La Combe. It’s ideal served chilled with almost all casual foods. Gone are the days when inferior Rosés were made by the gallon. It’s now one of the “in” wines to enjoy,

N

ow that State Senator Bill Monning (D-Carmel) pulled his soda labeling bill from a State Assembly committee, the Central Coast politician may take one more swing at the effort next year— his final in the legislature. The bill would require health warning labels on sweetened beverages like sodas, energy drinks and some teas. Monning says the media often portrays the narrative as him against the soda industry, which he says is only part of the story. “The objective is public health,” says Monning, who adds that he hopes to curb rates of obesity, preventable diabetes and tooth decay, especially among children.

Your soda labeling bill made it farther than ever this year. Do you see victory in that, or is it mostly just frustrating? BILL MONNING: We’re encouraged that we got it through the Senate, but it remains an uphill fight. We were disappointed to be blocked in the Assembly Health Committee, but also not totally surprised. We do a pretty thorough outreach and vote count, so we knew we were short of the votes, but we still presented the bill and then did not ask for the votes. It became

a two-year bill, so Senate Bill 347 is still in the active file, and we’ll make a decision after the New Year what our plans are, but there could be changes in the makeup of that committee. The biggest disappointment is the influence exercised by big soda in Sacramento. I probably visited each member once, and big soda probably visited them 10 times each.

Would you rather have a warning label on all sweetened beverages statewide or a tax on them? They’re really not mutually exclusive. The problem we face in the legislature—and one reason I’ve promoted the label warning—is the tax is a two-thirds vote in the legislature, and the label warning is a majority vote.

La Croix or Diet Coke? Is there any added sugar in [La Croix]?

No. So then, I would opt for La Croix. I’m not a promoter of diet sodas because I don’t know what’s in ’em. I know they don’t have added sugar, but I also don’t know the health impacts of some of the artificial sweeteners. To me, the number one public health choice is water.


H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES BEARERS OF TRUTH— JUPITER DIRECT

Astrology is a science of constant change— always new, fresh and illuminating, following specific rhythms, cadences, pulses, and patterns. Last Sunday, as Uranus began to retrograde, Jupiter moved forward in its own sign of Sagittarius. Jupiter is happy in Sagittarius, feeling lucky, limitless and joyful to be home again. Jupiter, retrograde since April, stationed (still in the sky) direct at 14.30 degrees Sag. On Dec. 2, Jupiter will enter Capricorn. Another change for humanity. Jupiter is a fast-moving planet, remaining in each sign for a year. As the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter offers humanity “big” things—abundance and expansion. Jupiter is good to us. However, if we overdo (especially with food or drink, as Sag is the hidden gourmet

of the zodiac), we enter into the shadow side of Jupiter and lose our way in overabundance. On the higher levels of awareness, Jupiter makes us contemplative, our heart filled with compassion. We seek higher truths and are dedicated to goals and aspirations that help others. Joy couples with philosophy, love and wisdom. We become bearers of truth. We want to travel, join the world, see new places, cultures and people. Some of us will open a publishing or music company or gallery, write a book, take a long journey, learn archery, find a white horse and ride it somewhere, become teachers, professors, mentors. Some will begin schools, become professors, enter convents, or journey to Jerusalem, Rome, Lourdes, or Fatima.

ARIES Mar21–Apr20

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22

Are you considering a journey far away, or perhaps something legal or educational, religious or psychological? You seek the truth of all that matters, and need it quickly and comprehensively. Life feels larger, greater, bigger than ever before. There’s freedom and honesty to be found, curiosity and open-mindedness to remember. Your inner compass is realigning, your faith is growing. The spirit of peace guides you.

Jupiter and Uranus bring us new, revelatory information so that we may begin to question all that we believe and assess those beliefs to see if they bring goodness and goodwill to our lives. A deep truth about your childhood and upbringing begins to unfold for you. And honesty and the true nature of things become known. In all communication offer kindness, compassion and truth. Listen more. Deep listening is a mindful spiritual practice.

TAURUS Apr21–May21

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

There are mysteries you’re researching, filled with hidden dreams and values. You want to share them with others but are careful to not be made fun of, ignored or vilified. You must trust others before revealing yourself. There’s a sense that next year you may move, as changes unfold financially. But you want to make sure you have all the facts before making a life-changing decision. You know life is a drama, filled with actors, everyone playing their part.

Your new journey is one of deep re-discovery of what you truly value. Out and about in the world of others, we can lose our sense of value—even that we are of value, and how much. During the next year, your true sense of worth, what makes for security and self-esteem, will subtly emerge. You must look for it to see it. And I must ask, how are you handling your money and resources, and what is most precious to you in your life?

GEMINI May 22–June 20

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

Gemini’s other half is Sagittarius. Gemini and Sag are the “brothers/sisters” of the zodiac. When Jupiter moves forward in Sagittarius, as it is doing now, you have the opportunity to expand your world with new spiritual influences. Information that you have been seeking comes forth, causing a reevaluation of all belief systems. Honesty and will are required. There is love all around you. You rethink what love is.

The past seven years have been years of growth in selfawareness and wisdom. Now a new phase begins for you. At first, you may feel divided on a major choice recently made. However, your life is protected, there are no mistakes, and your next step is the synthesizing of all your gifts and abilities. This will occur through your work, and by the new people you meet. Know that all that you need are at your feet.

Esoteric Astrology as news for week of Aug. 14, 2019

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

LE0 Jul21–Aug22 Leo is always about self-discovery, one’s creativity and the ability to see the self in one’s artform. Now with Jupiter in Sag (another fire sign), a deeper sense of self-discovery comes forth. It’s a journey right to the heart of freedom. It’s important to create a journal of self and creativity—in it, list all talents, gifts and abilities, along with desires yet to be fulfilled. Are there children in your life? Children teach Leos how to be playful. The greatest creative act is having faith in your life. Each day is an adventure.

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20 Do you have a dream journal? It would be good to have one, to jot down dreams, visions, intuitions, hopes, wishes, and more dreams in the coming months. Dreams are ways the subconscious synthesizes experiences in daily life. Dreams are sometimes visionary—offering answers to questions. At times, family members who have died appear in our dreams to tell us they are doing well. Dreams tell us what we’re capable of, and sometimes say, “Let’s do this again ... more wisely this time.” Dreams take us underwater, where healing happens.

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18 Jupiter brings you good things, friends, networks, community, and wishes that come true. You are a friend to many, perhaps to an entire town. This brings happiness to your heart. Something you’ve needed and longed for has come to fruition. After many years of a certain important need, it was fulfilled. Now you can set your sights on new desires and aspirations. As the days unfold, old ways and limitations fall away. A whole new life emerges.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22

PISCES Feb19–Mar20

What is the situation at home these days? How is your garden? What attention does your home need? Does home offer you a state of security and foundation? How was your childhood, and what good things did you learn then? Who were your parents, and what did you learn from them? Are there patterns, sadnesses, burdens you want release from? Deep within is a new reality you have been gestating. Soon it will be birthed. And you will be free.

It’s important to be prepared, because Jupiter is affecting your public life, career, profession, and work in the world. New opportunities will be sensed, along with a feeling that you must do more, offer more, step forward more. There may be some fear. However, it’s for the best to reconnect with a previous aspiration. You are safe. Pisces is about faith that solutions will come. Cherish all the challenges, dream bigger, and always try your best.

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | AUGUST 14-20, 2019

Daily life, routines, order, organization, and health are the important spiritual avenues to be tended to. You are often giving to others. People see you as living a life of service. But I want to ask you if you are happy. Does giving offer you joy? You may be living a hidden life with secret fears and ambitions no one knows about. Cancers cover themselves up with a shell of protection. Jupiter asks you: what brings you joy?

All those people and jobs accelerated things on both sides of the hill. Here on the coast, prices had already recovered from the steep downturn of the early ‘90s and now, fueled by a rush of new tech jobs, they were on a renewed trajectory upward. As an Agent, the market in the mid ‘90s was one of my all-time favorites. Buyers and sellers were in good spirits. The market was balanced and there was a fair amount of give and take in most transactions (unlike the lopsided, overthe-top Sellers’ market of these last six years). Best of all, a surprising number of home purchases were being made by first-time buyers who had landed good jobs over the hill and didn’t mind the drive. The surge in rookie homeowners was a boon to our neighborhoods. The new blood brought an infusion of sweat equity and pride of ownership in to transform some of the tired, old rental stock that had seen better days. The early decade downturn of the ‘90s had actually opened the market up to more deserving folks who had been priced out in the frenzy of the late ‘80s. If you bought your current home between 1993 and 1997, you were probably one of those people. But then…as Silicon Valley shifted into the hyper-drive of the dot. com era, the market also launched like a rocket ship into a brave new world. Even though everyone said we’d never see another market with the intensity of the late ‘80s, they were wrong. Prior to the late ‘90s Santa Cruz never really had multiple offers. Maybe a few competitive offers here and there on select beach properties, but never an entire market that considered multiple offers a normal part of the process. Santa Cruz prices had also never broken the magic million dollar mark before 1997, but that started to change too. In 1997 and 1998, we saw our first handful of single family sales that exceeded the million dollar milestone. And as dot.com mania swung into high gear, so did the market on the coast as increasing numbers of young 30-something tech entrepreneurs, flush with stock options burning a hole in their pockets, began to scour neighborhoods by the beach. Next week: Market on a crash course for Y2K

S HOPP ER’ S SPOTLIG HT

Occupation: Event planner, CoastsideCouture.com Hobbies: Mountain biking, water aerobics instructor, working out, family life, cooking What first got you shopping here? I remember visiting my grandparents in Santa Cruz when I was maybe three. Now, every time I walk into Shopper’s I think about my grandparents buying Mocha Mix; they used it on everything! Years later, while living in San Luis Obispo, I’d visit my husband-to-be in Santa Cruz and make him dinner after shopping at Shopper’s.Then I’d fill up my cooler with meat from Shopper’s and take it back home for me and my roommates. Shopper’s spoiled us! Eventually, when my husband and I decided to live here, Shopper’s was a major factor in our settling in Santa Cruz.

What do you like to cook? Usually meat or fresh fish— Shopper’s seafood is superb!— on the grill, plus a starch and veggies. My family drools over Shopper’s Santa Maria tri-tip, the skirt steak, too! Shopper’s meatloaf is amazing, and perfect for meat sauce and meatballs. I recently met friends on a mountain biking trip and brought 10 pounds of Guinness bratwurst sausages. I was the star of our party! I was in 4H and learned to appreciate knowing where my food is from. Shopper’s butchers are informative and just wonderful humans.They’ll crack my ham hocks three times because that’s what my grandma did!

You prefer shopping local? Absolutely! — I’m a local business owner. Shopper’s feels really personable.There are many friendly faces at Shopper’s.The butchers and checkers have seen my son, Miles, grow up, and he always chooses Shopper’s when I ask him which market he would like to go to. I think their produce is the best in Santa Cruz, and I like that they carry good local products such as Mrs.A’s Salsa, Sumano’s breads, Harley Farms goat cheese, local beers and more.We shopped other markets when we lived on the Westside. It’s crazy how much money we now save at Shopper’s Corner!
