OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE Back when medical marijuana first became a cause célèbre around here, conservatives accused activists of a secret agenda to legalize weed entirely. I remember thinking, “Hmm, is it really that secret?” (And also, “How does that in any way invalidate the good reasons for authorizing medical marijuana?”) The support for legalization got to be so widespread that its talking points became gospel. Taxation! Regulation! It seemed necessary at first, no doubt, as a means of changing minds. But it quickly became an assumption that many cannabis enthusiasts didn’t feel the need to look at more closely. If the goal of legalizing it was achieved, what could go wrong? Last year, California became the fifth state to make cannabis legal,

TAX CARBON

4

Thank you for having not one, but two articles on climate change in the 8/23 issue of the Good Times. When it comes to extending capand-trade, I completely agree with Richard Nolthenius that we need a carbon tax, simply because it is the most powerful strategy we have to drastically reduce carbon emissions. Capand-trade is a good first step, but the real impact will be a carbon tax, preferably in a carbon fee and dividend form which has bipartisan support. Keep up the great reporting. ALEX YASBEK | SANTA CRUZ

SEE YOU IN 5717 Wow, that’s quite a man-crush letter writer Manu Koenig (GT, 8/30) has for local ocean pundit Gary Griggs. I would not hold my breath about a monument, Manu—this being Santa Cruz, someone will find it offensive for whatever reason and tear it down. (Maybe Gary didn’t return a library book 30 years ago, that’s about how it’s getting). Anyhow, do you recall the mastodon skeleton which was found in an Aptos creek

via an easy win for Prop. 64. And now that there aren’t enforcement issues to worry about (at the state level, at least), it seems like cannabis activists are willing to take a closer, more honest look at weed’s brave new world—and its potential pitfalls. The actual culture around cannabis is not something that people talked about much, if at all, in the run-up to last year’s vote. But now, people like wine industry icon Phil Coturri are starting to speak out about the dangers of cannabis becoming big business, as he does in this week’s cover story by Jonah Raskin. Will smaller growers be pushed out entirely? Will farming methods get even less sustainable? Will the quality and diversity of cannabis itself suffer? As with the medical marijuana debate years ago, I don’t think anyone is saying these questions invalidate the reasons for legalizing cannabis. But Coturri makes a convincing argument that it’s time they were asked. STEVE PALOPOLI | EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

outcropping some years ago? The one from that last ice age, about 10,000 years ago? Well, I attended an excellent talk by a nowretired UCSC Astrophysicist Emeritus—I won’t name him without permission—who assured the audience that despite any various and sundry temperature jigs and jags along the way, the next Ice Age is indeed on its way, right on schedule, to arrive in about 3,700 years. What to believe. Well, don’t take his word for it; let’s agree to meet here 3,700 years from now and see for ourselves.

DOCTOR’S NOTE

MEDAL TO THE PETAL

The Santa Cruz County Public Health department is taking steps to address an outbreak of Hepatitis A. Cases are up from one to two per year to more than 60 in the last five months, including a few outside “vulnerable populations,” which refers to individuals with poor access to sanitary facilities. Hepatitis A is an inflammation of the liver, and is usually transmitted through fecal-oral contact. Symptoms include jaundice, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. The health department encourages vaccinations, which are free.

Crowds crammed in along Capitola’s sidewalks surrounding Soquel Creek and lined either side of the Stockton Avenue bridge for the main event of the 65th—and final—Capitola Begonia Festival. Among 11 entries, the Riverview Rascals team took first for its float airplane, which featured smoke billowing out the tailpipe. As the event wound down, the announcers bantered about their return with a similarbut-different festival. “We’ll see you all next year,” one said, signing off.

AFFORDABILITY AFFECTS ALL IN SANTA CRUZ I want to thank Mayor Chase and the Santa Cruz City Council for undertaking the very real challenge of addressing the “escalating problem of housing unaffordability and scarcity” in the city of Santa Cruz. Lack of affordable housing here is a problem that affects everyone, even the homeowners who are blessed enough to be able to own property in the city or who were lucky enough to buy property when it was cheaper. Skyrocketing rental prices mean that soon the only people who will be able to live here >8

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of September 6 ARIES Mar21–Apr19

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22

You’re half-intoxicated by your puzzling adventures—and half-bewildered, as well. Sometimes you’re spinning out fancy moves, sweet tricks, and surprising gambits. On other occasions you’re stumbling and bumbling and mumbling. Are you really going to keep up this rhythm? I hope so, because your persistence in navigating through the challenging fun could generate big rewards. Like what, for example? Like the redemptive transformation of a mess into an asset.

Let’s meet in the woods after midnight and tell each other stories about our origins, revealing the secrets we almost forgot we had. Let’s sing the songs that electrified our emotions all those years ago when we first fell in love with our lives. Starlight will glow on our ancient faces. The fragrance of loam will seep into our voices like rainwater feeding the trees’ roots. We’ll feel the earth turning on its axis, and sense the rumble of future memories coming to greet us. We’ll join hands, gaze into the dreams in each other’s eyes, and dive as deep as we need to go to find hidden treasures.

TAURUS Apr20–May20 “Free your mind and your ass will follow,” sings funk pioneer George Clinton in his song “Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts.” And what’s the best way to free your mind? Clinton advises you to “Be careful of the thought-seeds you plant in the garden of your mind.” That’s because the ideas you obsess on will eventually grow into the experiences you attract into your life. “Good thoughts bring forth good fruit,” he croons, while “Bullshit thoughts rot your meat.” Any questions, Taurus? According to my astrological analysis, this is the best possible counsel for you to receive right now.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 I don’t usually recommend giving gifts with strings attached. On the contrary, I advise you to offer your blessings without having any expectations at all. Generosity often works best when the recipients are free to use it any way they see fit. In the coming weeks, however, I'm making an exception to my rule. According to my reading of the omens, now is a time to be specific and forceful about the way you’d like your gifts to be used. As an example of how not to proceed, consider the venture capitalist who donated $25,000 to the University of Colorado. All he got in return was a rest room in a campus building named after him. If you give away $25,000, Scorpio, make sure you at least get a whole building named after you.

James Loewen wrote a book called Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong. He said, for instance, that during the Europeans’ invasion and conquest of the continent, it wasn’t true that Native Americans scalped white settlers. In fact, it was mostly the other way around: whites scalped Indians. Here’s another example: The famous blind and deaf person, Helen Keller, was not a sentimental spokesperson for sweetness and light, but rather a radical feminist and socialist who advocated revolution. I invite you to apply Loewen’s investigative approach to your personal past, Gemini. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to uncover hidden, incomplete and distorted versions of your history, and correct them.

Now that you’re getting a taste of what life would be like if you ruled the world, I’ll recommend a manual. It’s called How to Start Your Own Country, by Erwin Strauss. (Get a free peek here: tinyurl.com/YouSovereign.) You could study it for tips on how to obtain national sovereignty, how to recruit new citizens, and how to avoid paying taxes to yourself. (P.S.: You can make dramatic strides toward being the boss of yourself and your destiny even without forming your own nation.)

CANCER Jun21–Jul22

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19

Roger Hodge writes books now, but when he worked for Harper’s magazine, he had an unusual specialty. He gathered heaps of quirky facts, and assembled several at a time into long sentences that had a nutty poetic grace. Here’s an example: “British cattle have regional accents, elephants mourn their dead, nicotine sobers drunk rats, scientists have concluded that teenagers are physically incapable of being considerate, and clinical trials of an ‘orgasmatron’ are underway in North Carolina.” I’m offering Hodge as a worthy role model for you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Be curious, miscellaneous, and free-flowing. Let your mind wander luxuriantly as you make unexpected connections. Capitalize on the potential blessings that appear through zesty twists and tangy turns.

There was a time when not even the most ambitious explorers climbed mountains. In the Western world, the first time it happened was in 1492, when a Frenchman named Antoine de Ville ascended to the top of Mont Aiguille, using ladders, ropes, and other props. I see you as having a kinship with de Ville in the coming weeks, Capricorn. I’d love to see you embark on a big adventure that would involve you trying on the role of a pioneer. This feat wouldn’t necessarily require strenuous training and physical courage. It might be more about daring creativity and moral courage.

LE0 Jul23–Aug22 In Japan, you can buy a brand of candy that’s called the Great Buddha’s Nose Snot. Each piece consists of a rice puff that resembles the Buddha’s nose filled with bits of brown sugar that symbolize the snot. The candy-making company assures customers that eating this treat brings them good luck. I invite you to be equally earthy and irreverent about your own spiritual values in the coming days. You’re in prime position to humanize your relationship with divine influences ... to develop a more visceral passion for your holiest ideals … to translate your noblest aspirations into practical, enjoyable actions.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 Will a routine trip to carry out an errand take you on a detour to the suburbs of the promised land? Will you worry you’re turning into a monster, only to find the freakishness is just a phase that you had to pass through on your way to unveiling some of your dormant beauty? Will a provocative figure from the past lead you on a productive wild-goose chase into the future? These are some of the possible storylines I’ll be monitoring as I follow your progress in the coming weeks.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 Science fiction proposes that there are alternate worlds alongside the visible one—hidden, yes, but perhaps accessible with the right knowledge or luck. In recent years, maverick physicists have given the idea more credibility, theorizing that parallel universes exist right next to ours. Even if these hypothetical places aren’t literally real, they serve as an excellent metaphor. Most of us are so thoroughly embedded in our own chosen niche that we are oblivious to the realities that other people inhabit. I bring these thoughts to your attention, Aquarius, because it’s a favorable time to tap into those alternate, parallel, secret, unknown, or unofficial realms. Wake up to the rich sources that have been so close to you, but so far away.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 I’m always in favor of you cultivating a robust relationship with your primal longings. But I’ll be rooting extra hard for you to do that during the next 11 months. I hope you will dig deep to identify your primal longings, and I hope you will revere them as the wellspring of your life energy, and I hope you will figure out all the tricks and strategies you will need to fulfill them. Here’s a hint about how to achieve the best results as you do this noble work: Define your primal longings with as much precision as you can, so that you will never pursue passing fancies that bear just a superficial resemblance to the real things.

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.

are tech workers who commute over the hill. In the meantime, nurses, teachers, sanitation workers, and service workers will have to commute in from cheaper towns. Our traffic situation is bad enough without inviting more commuting. Besides the increased traffic that is inevitable when the average worker can’t afford to live here, there are other societal ills that come with such a high cost of living. Our town depends on low to middle-wage earners. No one wants to end up in the emergency room with a nurse who is slightly under-qualified, but the only candidate for the job who was willing to put up with a long commute. Similarly, having to call a police officer is bad

enough, but no one wants the officer who shows up to have been up all night working a second job to help pay the rent. Unfortunately, these are likely scenarios. As a teacher, I know that Santa Cruz City Schools hesitates to consider candidates who have to relocate, and more than once candidates have accepted teaching jobs only to later rescind their acceptance because they can’t find housing. If we want qualified professionals working in the important positions we rely on, we need to come together and address the problem of high housing costs. STACEY FALLS | SANTA CRUZ

Neighborhood Bard Inside the best-kept Shakespeare secret on the Central Coast BY MAT WEIR

S

anta Cruz Shakespeare’s season ended Sunday night with the final performance of The Two Gentlemen of Verona. But even as our premier local Shakespeare company goes dark until next summer, there’s a little-known spot not too far down Highway 1—in Moss Landing, of all places—that continues to celebrate the Bard year-round. It’s easy to speed past it, but tucked away in this community of barely more than 200 residents, as of the last census, is the Shakespeare Society of America.

The sign above the door at 7981 Moss Landing Road declares the SSA the “New Shakespeare Sanctuary.” Inside, mannequins are adorned with elaborate Elizabethan costumes, while leather-bound tomes fill bookcases along the perimeter of the room. A maze of glass cases display coins, elaborate knives and other artifacts, and a glance upward reveals framed woodblock prints and aging playbills. It’s hard to know what to make of it all, and indeed, the story of the SSA and how it got here is as offbeat as its

collection would suggest. “In 1967, the Shakespeare Society began as a group of culturally active, like-minded individuals who were dedicated to instructing and advancing the works of William Shakespeare,” says SSA President/ CEO and museum docent Terry Taylor. “It was based out of a Tudor mansion on Alta Loma off Sunset Boulevard, near Mel’s Diner in west Los Angeles.” In those days, a different Taylor ran the SSA. Under the leadership of R. Thad Taylor—Terry’s uncle— and John D. Uhley, the >12

A swarm of community members, most of them bus drivers, crowded into the Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District room for a heated bus transit board meeting on Aug. 25. They filled every seat, wrapped around the room, and spilled out into the lobby, about half of them wearing shirts that read “Purple is the New Black,” a reference to the colors of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The union workers had shown up to protest a salary increase for Metro CEO Alex Clifford of 10 percent, to $213,000 annually. “The CEO, in negotiating this agreement, has put himself first, before all other members of this agency,” said Olivia Martinez, internal organizer for SEIU, Local 521, during the public comment period. She noted that Metro workers and the SEIU had campaigned hard with agency leaders to help pass Measure D, Santa Cruz County’s 30-year transportation sales tax initiative that will provide $3 million per year to Metro. The measure’s victory in November of 2016 was the difference between a proposed 30 percent cut in service and the 12 percent cut in service that the board ended up approving—still not a strong enough financial situation for them to be putting cash toward the top of the Metro totem pole, Martinez argued. One board member after another deflected the criticisms, noting that this was not, in fact, a raise, but rather what’s called a “step increase,” built into Clifford’s contract, to get approved when an employee has done a “satisfactory” job. Board Chair Jimmy Dutra said the board had step increases for union employees before it at that same meeting, and it wouldn’t think about denying those. Board member Mike Rotkin said that the board has never denied anyone at Metro a step increase since he first began serving on it in 1979. The explanations may have quieted the grumblings in the room, but it didn’t eliminate them. “I wish my step increase was an extra 17 grand,” said Metro driver Brandon Freeman, as he stood outside the crowded >14

Shakespeare Society became a nonprofit in 1968. “Let me tell you about Thad,” says SSA Board Member Francis Hamit. An author, journalist and playwright for more than five decades, Hamit says Thad Taylor told him much about his life over the years. “He was a merchant sailor who got ahold of the Complete Works of Shakespeare. He read it to pass the time, and it changed his life.” Taylor and Uhley planned on building an Alta Loma Shakespeare Center on 20 acres of land, but could not raise the money. Instead, they moved out of their location in 1972, and into a quonset hut on Kings Road in West Hollywood. “The museum aspect helped a lot,” remembers Hamit. “Thad had all this stuff he had collected over the years, and he would put it out in the lobby.” Taylor and Uhley would eventually turn the hut into the world’s first replica of the interior of Shakespeare’s 1599 Globe Theater. They built it as a halfscale model, based on meticulous study through hundreds of primary documents and original drawings. Between 1976 and 1979, the SSA performed all 38 plays by the Bard outlined in the First Folio—known as the Shakespeare Canon. A monstrous task, the

endeavour required more than 600 producers, actors and directors, with 200 supporting staff. Between 1981 and 1984, the society would repeat the Canon, along with the Apocrypha—plays attributed to Shakespeare but never verified—and the Sonnets. The SSA’s work has reflected the constantly evolving understanding of Shakespeare’s writing, and the mystery that continues to surround the playwright. Details around everything from his birth to his “lost years” to his death continue to be disputed—not to mention the very question of whether he actually authored many plays attributed to him. Just last year, Oxford University Press announced they will begin printing copies of Henry VI with a new addition: a co-authorship for Christopher Marlowe, who was the subject of a 1988 play by Hamit called Marlowe, which debuted at the SSA’s Globe and is currently in the pre-production stages of being adapted into a feature film, Christopher Marlowe. “Writers in Shakespeare’s lifetime were very collaborative, and jointly worked on numerous projects,” Santa Cruz Shakespeare Artistic Director Mike Ryan tells GT via email. “In some ways, they were more like today’s television and film writing teams than

contemporary playwrights.” Debates over authorship aside, Hamit thinks there is a reason that Shakespeare’s plays continue to be re-imagined for every new generation. “He has universal appeal,” says Hamit. “Shakespeare had the talent of tapping into human consciousness, even if he wasn’t always 100 percent original.”

NORTHERN STAR Between the 1990s and the early 2000s the SSA continued its mission to reproduce Shakespearean productions for audiences of all ages. “An estimated 10,000-plus actors and actresses crossed the stage,” Terry says. It was in 2006, when Thad Taylor died, that the SSA found itself wondering what to do, and where to go. Hamit was asked to rejoin the Board of Directors, which he did out of dedication to Thad and the company, and Terry was elected president and CEO. A native of the Bay Area, Terry decided to move the SSA to Moss Landing in 2008. He notes his uncle was a “feverish collector,” and the elder Taylor left behind a rare book and reference collection of more than 1,000 museum and memorabilia items, as well as a visual arts collection >16

view is pretty much never as bad as you imagined it in your head. That’s the reason, as we mentioned last week, we were disappointed to not hear from Roger Grigsby, owner of O’mei, a Chinese restaurant on Mission Street. Grigsby donated $500 toward the white supremacist David Duke’s meager attempt at a U.S. Senate campaign in Louisiana last year, inciting outrage around Santa Cruz when the community learned of it this summer. Or at

least we thought we were disappointed. But after our story was published, Grigsby talked to reporters from KPIX and the Santa Cruz Sentinel (shortly after his whole wait staff apparently walked out), saying that he supports Duke for the former KKK leader’s record of “defending the civil rights of European-Americans,” adding that the backlash against him and his now-closed restaurant is all part of a “war on whites.” Congrats, Roger. You proved

our theory wrong! We now actually appreciate your not returning our calls, and sparing us from what would have been a conversation much, much worse than we were even imagining. The saga got picked up all over, including, of course, at Breitbart, where one commenter wrote, “The time has come to fight the fascists on the left. If Santa Cruz is ground zero, so be it.” Uh, OK then. If “fascists on the left” means “people who dislike racism” … well, bring it. JACOB PIERCE

LINE OF THINKING Metro leaders found errors in a grand jury report’s budgetary numbers, and say some of the suggestions made would be too expensive. PHOTO: KEANA PARKER

meeting room, turned toward his friends packed in behind him. For him, each step increase was only in the 2 or 3 percent range. And unlike Clifford, he won’t be getting any more, because drivers top out after they reach their sixth increase. Later, as members gathered around outside the meeting room doors, Martinez clarified that they weren’t criticizing the step increase itself, but rather the way it was handled. The problem, she tells GT, is that the board unanimously awarded Clifford two simultaneous step increases in one motion, and also put the CEO on a brand new schedule that starts him over at step one— so that he’s at the first stage of six salary increases over the next five years. She feels the increases were all done under the table, in an attempt to avoid public scrutiny.

Clifford’s salary, she says, is out of step with what CEOs of other transportation districts make and also with that of Clifford’s predecessor, Les White, who retired in 2014. Dutra and Rotkin say that the board granted Clifford two step increases at one time partly because the CEO had foregone last year’s step increase, given the financial tension Metro was in ahead of November’s tightly contested Measure D vote. Rotkin, a five-time former Santa Cruz mayor, says the board would have had no justification for denying an increase to Clifford because “he did a good job” navigating financially uncertain times—closer to “extraordinary,” really, Rotkin says—hence the extra step. The board had Clifford’s performance evaluation at its June meeting, when it awarded him the increases in closed session, as noted on the agenda, although the agenda did not specifically mention anything about compensation. Dutra notes

that a member of the public did show up to speak about Clifford’s evaluation at that June meeting—Metro driver Eduardo Montesino, who was the only person to do so. Montesino, a former Watsonville mayor, spoke again at the August meeting to say that he wished Clifford’s salary increase, although not necessarily unwarranted, could have been handled with more transparency. The transit district has faced other recent criticisms as well, most notably from a grand jury report titled “The Bus Stops Here,” which criticized Metro for its fiscal management, service cuts and failures to explore future opportunities and partnerships. The board and Clifford both rejected much of the report in separate responses, showing that it incorrectly claimed Metro was headed for a fiscal cliff, when it in fact has balanced its budget. And some of the grand jury’s suggestions, they

argue, are too expensive to be worth the investment. When it comes to compensation, Rotkin acknowledges that Clifford is making much more money than White did, but says that White made more than his predecessor did, too. Rotkin—a union organizer himself for the American Federation of Teachers—says that talented, experienced CEOs are difficult to come by, and hiring a new one can be expensive. At the same time, Rotkin explains that Metro leaders also keep adding on additional step increases—as they did earlier this summer, when extending Clifford’s contract—to avoid a situation where their CEO is asking himself, “Where else can I go?” At the end of the day, Clifford is employed “at will” by the board, unlike other Metro workers. “You want to keep him around for a few years,” Rotkin says. “But at the same time, if he did anything seriously wrong, the board could fire him at the next meeting.”

containing more than 1,000 pieces. While the sanctuary can’t house everything in the SSA’s archives, it’s home to some of Terry’s favorites from the collection. Among them are the eight-foot sculpture of Shakespeare holding a torch, commissioned by the SSA for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, and the 1805 printing of the Complete Works of Shakespeare owned by legendary actor John Barrymore. The “New Sanctuary” has hosted more than 10,000 tourists in the last decade. Like many nonprofits, they still struggle financially and with staffing. “Terry has gained progress, but he’s only one man,” says Hamit. “He really needs volunteer help that will stick with it.” Hamit says Taylor and the Board have recently been going through and selling Thad’s collection of non-Shakespeare-related items, in order to raise funds to keep the sanctuary going. Another clever way the society has been raising money is through a unique merchandising line of playing cards called “Shakespeare’s Flowers.” The playwright mentioned 181 plants and flowers in his plays and sonnets, so British company Heritage Playing Cards released a line dedicated to the Bard’s love of nature. The deck features 54 different plants, along with Shakespeare’s quote on the items and the reference to where it can be found in his work. The SSA is the top retailer of the deck in the U.S., and they recently gained permission to reproduce the floral prints on mugs, greeting cards and even an 8-by-11-inch coloring book. The SSA also plans to begin digitizing their folios and prints, making their archive accessible to a global audience. “The SSA is one of the most unique cultural education organizations in the world, with an unparalleled stage legacy and physical artifacts,” Terry says, “[with a] publishing empire in a room full of master copies unseen by the world.”

Rolled Wine industry icon says boutique cannabis culture is in serious trouble BY JONAH RASKIN

s a winemaker, sought-after vineyard manager, cannabis aficionado and Deadhead, Phil Coturri has loads of stories to tell about his long, strange trip. Or maybe it’s not so strange, or so long, either. Indeed, in some ways it’s just getting going, especially now with the cannabis industry in upheaval and with so-called experts mouthing off about the irreconcilable differences between wine and weed. The founder and CEO of Sonoma’s Enterprise Vineyard Management and the co-owner of Winery Sixteen 600, Coturri thinks that wine and weed are compatible in the field and on the dining room table. He’d like to see more pairing of the two, and with food, as well. But perhaps more importantly, Coturri wants to warn us all of the dangers ahead for the culture of cannabis—before regulators destroy something valuable that has been shaped by growers and smokers, farmers and aficionados for the past half century. Indeed, he has thought carefully about the repercussions of his words and deeds. He hasn’t forgotten that cannabis is illegal under federal law and that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has put it near the top of his list of drugs to be eliminated. I’ve known Coturri for years, not only as a grape grower and winemaker, but also as a cannabis connoisseur. I’ve previously written about him under pseudonyms. That’s the way he always wanted it. He’s only allowed his name to be used in print now because he recognizes that cannabis is in crisis and needs all of the friends it can muster.

CROPS CIRCLED Just as wine has its own unique culture, so does cannabis,

says Coturri.

<19 As a connoisseur of wine and weed, he’s worried that in the rush to legalize, regulate and normalize marijuana in California, the beauty of the plant and its aromatic flowers that he has known intimately since his college days at Sonoma State University will fall by the wayside. That’s why he’s coming out of the cannabis closet little by little, slowly and steadily. Indeed, he invited me to his office on First Street West in Sonoma because he wanted to sound an alarm, before bureaucrats crush a whole way of life.

Coturri isn’t the only one to sound an alarm. All across Northern California, small growers share his fear that new rules will drive many of them out of business and hand the pot industry over to the guys who have big money and who can afford to hire lawyers and consultants. Coturri argues that quality will suffer as weed goes corporate and quantity soars. Some say the quality has already declined and that it’s essential to save the endangered world of boutique pot. There is concern in Santa Cruz, too.

“We are going to see a big influx of products from these new corporate companies with large gardens and, in general, it will be hard for them to keep the same quality standards. They will turn toward less and less organic production and sustainable methods. That’s what we see in conventional agriculture.” -PATRICK MALO OF GREEN TRADE SANTA CRUZ <20 “We are going to see a big influx of products from these new corporate companies with large gardens and, in general, it will be hard for them to keep the same quality standards,” says Patrick Malo, co-founder of Green Trade Santa Cruz. “They will turn toward less and less organic production and sustainable methods. That’s what we see in conventional agriculture.” Malo added that though Santa Cruz is comparably better off because of its broad support for independent local business, there will still be challenges with the current business model on the state and county level that are bound to push some smaller businesses out.

In some ways, Coturri seems like the last of the old-school hippies. He grew up and came of age in the counterculture of the San Francisco Bay Area, which thrived on pot, protest and psychedelic rock. Coturri arrives for our meeting right on time, smelling of the great outdoors and as fresh as one of the many vineyards he manages. “Come springtime, vineyards take over my life,” he says. He wears glasses, a full beard, boots, shorts and a sweatshirt that reads: “Resist.” Indeed, he’s probably as much of a

On the wall of the office are pictures of some of Coturri’s heroes: Janis Joplin; Beat poet Michael McClure; Jerry Garcia; Gary Snyder, the environmentalist and Pulitzer Prize winner; and Owsley Stanley, often described as “the King of LSD.” Born into a working-class Italian-American family in San Francisco, Coturri is a product of the city’s bohemian and immigrant communities. His father and grandfather both made wine. His brother Tony makes wine. His sons Sam and Max also make wine. It’s in their blood. So, too, is THC. “I’ve heard people describe cannabis as a threat to wine, but I definitely don’t see it that way,” Coturri says. “I think it’s time to emphasize to the connoisseurs in both worlds—the people who are using both—not to get wasted, intoxicated and high just for the sake of getting high, but to appreciate the flavors, the taste and the aroma. In my world, they’re both familial—something to be shared with the whole extended family.” Coturri began to smoke cannabis at the age of 14. (He dropped acid, he told me, before he began to experiment with pot.) He grew his first crop on Sonoma Mountain

<23 germination of the seeds to the flowering of the female plants. It has long been a passion of mine.” This past April, the New York Times published a couple of photos of Coturri. In one, he walks through a vineyard at Kamen Estate, which he manages; in the other, he’s in his greenhouse surrounded by marijuana starts. The article that accompanied the photos describes marijuana as Coturri’s “hobby.” Maybe that’s the way it looks from New York. In Sonoma, it’s more like a quest for something that’s hard to define and difficult to pin down, but that adds zest to life. The Times article also claimed that Coturri was as “exalted locally” for his marijuana as he was for his vineyard practices. That’s an exaggeration, to say the least. As an icon of the organic and biodynamic California grape and wine industry, Coturri has mostly kept his cannabis connection under his hat and not advertised it. As an undergraduate at SSU, Coturri read and wrote poetry. Back then, he would have liked nothing better than to be a poet, though he realized that he probably would not have been able to make a living writing verse. Still, his love of poetry hasn’t abandoned him and he hasn’t abandoned it. “Once a poet always a poet,” he says. “I’m a poet in the vineyard and in the greenhouse, a poet with pot and with Pinot.”

in 1978. All four of the pot plants in his tiny garden were stolen. Still, he wasn’t discouraged, in part because the California artist and longtime bohemian Robert Pearson McChesney showed him the marijuana that he grew in a greenhouse on Sonoma Mountain for his own personal use and the use of his friends. McChesney was in his mid60s; Coturri was in his 20s. “I was impressed,” he says. “McChesney built his own house with his own hands, and he cultivated his own weed. Now I’m worried that the cultural descendants of McChesney will have a hard time surviving in the new overly regulated world of marijuana. I want them to be protected. I also want the heritage strains to be protected.” Still, Coturri says he understands some of the reasons why the industry is being so intensely regulated by the government, more than any other crop in California. “Every Tom, Dick and Harry is growing pot,” he says. “For the most part, they don’t understand the complexities of the plant, or its medicinal and therapeutic properties.” These Johnny-come-latelys often don’t know what real pot ought to taste like, smell like and look like, he says. At the end of a hard day’s labor, Coturri likes to go into his greenhouse and putter with his pot plants as a way to relax, unwind and be at peace with himself and the world. “Marijuana is an amazing plant,” he says. “I enjoy watching the whole growing cycle, from the

graduated this year with a B.A in Fine Arts), Nickell reacquainted himself with San-Jose-nativeturned-Los-Angeleno DJ Getter. The pair began collaborating on several projects, and released the track “Forget It” in March 2016 through OWSLA, the label owned and operated by one of the biggest DJs in the world, Skrillex. Later that year, they made their broadcast debut on the late-night show Last Call With Carson Daly. Three months after the release of “Forget It,” Nickell and Getter dropped its video, a cinematicquality piece about a man so in love with his deceased fiancée, he tries to clone her—only to have each version die unexpectedly. While the video is as unnerving as it is beautifully shot, one aspect of it contains a bit of humor and a part of Tree history. “That was the start of the bowl cut,” says Nickell, referring to his Beatlesesque mop top. That ’do became famous last month, when Tree was called out for it by rapper Killer Mike—half of the hip-hop group Run the Jewels—at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Nickell, performing the festival with his three-piece group under the name Oliver Tree, was rocking out in front of the stage and Killer Mike couldn’t help but laugh. “Your fucking haircut is classic, motherfucker,” Mike said on stage, pointing at Nickell. “That beautiful kid, dressed like a weirdo with the haircut … I fucking love you, kid!” Nickell got a good laugh from it all. “That was pretty awesome,” he chuckles. “I recently tweeted him and asked if he would cut my hair at his barber shop. He said ‘deal,’

so we’ll see. I might have to go to Atlanta for a haircut.” However, that probably won’t be happening anytime soon, as the haircut is an essential part of Oliver Tree’s new album, Turbo, and the character which gives the album its title. Nickell describes Turbo as a celebrity underdog— the awkward, anti-sex icon competing with a world of Justin Biebers. “We all have imperfections, and this character definitely embodies that,” he says. “I mean, he rides a scooter! That’s the underdog of extreme sports. It’s laughed at by all the skateboarders, but people are doing triple backflips on it now.” This past spring, Atlantic Records signed Oliver Tree to their label and began buying billboard space in Los Angeles with an image of Turbo in front of the words “Welcome to L.A.” Instead of selling a product, Nickell refers to it more as “corporate street art.” Nickell’s plan for Turbo is to release one song a month online until the album—which has taken him the better part of the past year to make—has been released in its entirety. So far, four tracks have dropped, including a collaboration with Whethan called “When I’m Down.” Sticking to his roots, the Oliver Tree band consists of Casey Mattson on keys and Amir Oosman on drums, both friends from Santa Cruz. “It’s great to be able to keep people you grew up with and it helps keep me grounded,” he says. “We’re always honest with each other, and we all push each other to take it one step further.”

How Serbia’s Ana Popovic built her dynamic career in the unlikeliest of places BY CAT JOHNSON

T

here is not a big blues scene in Serbia. Small clubs pop up in Belgrade, then they close and others open, but there isn’t a lot of demand for the style in the country. So when Serbian guitarist/songwriter/ vocalist Ana Popovic started her musical career playing the blues, she had her work cut out for her. Her first band spent four years performing blues music that most audience members likely weren’t familiar with. Popovic learned a lot from those early gigs. As she puts it, she got to “experience what it is to entertain the audience.” “You need to entertain them with songs that are nicely played,” she says.

“They don’t know they are listening to blues, but if it’s catchy and a nice stage performance, then they stay.” While blues may not be big in Serbia, at large, it was a fixture in Popovic’s childhood. Her father, a guitarist with a deep appreciation for the art form, exposed her to Elmore James, Albert King, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ronnie Earl, Jimmy Reed and many more blues artists. He also taught her the art and joy of the jam, as every week he would get together with friends to play and improvise blues tunes. “I was really drawn to the blues,” says Popovic, who listened to the music even as her friends were listening to Serbian and pop music.

“In the household, my sister, who grew up on the same sounds of Elmore James and B.B. King, never really went for it—she liked different music. To me, blues was always a mesmerizing musical form and something that was really close to my home. It was just a musical home.” Popovic couldn’t wait to get her hands on an electric guitar of her own. She tried playing the keyboards, and started playing guitar on a Spanish classical guitar with plastic strings, but those instruments “didn’t do it” for her— she wanted an electric guitar. Once she got an electric guitar of her own, she didn’t put it down. She started playing with her dad’s friends

and worked to get good enough to solo during the weekly jams. She would sit in the family’s music room, which they called the Blue Room, and play along to recordings of legendary blues artists. “Just one song after another,” she says. “I wouldn’t stop until I got the solo down, until I learned every phrase. And not just the phrase, but also the feeling behind the phrase—the way it’s played and the texture of the phrase. I would go pretty deep. That’s how I would practice, then I would showcase it at our jams later that week.” Popovic left Serbia to pursue a career playing blues in the States by way of the Netherlands. Now based in Los Angeles, she has firmly established herself as a favorite among blues fans. Her latest offering, 2016’s self-released Trilogy, is a triple-album that showcases the breadth of Popovic’s talent. The first disc, Morning, is funk and soul, the second, Midday, is rock and blues, and the third, Midnight, is a jazz record. “I was trying to not sound like one artist,” says Popovic of the project. “I wanted people to hear all different sides of me and my music. I wanted people to listen to my music from early in the morning to late in the night and not feel like they’re listening to the same record.” When Trilogy was released, it made it into the Billboard top 10, alongside names like Eric Clapton and Bonnie Raitt. The success of the album reflects the loyal fanbase Popovic has built, the quality of her music and a determination that Popovic can trace back to those early days listening to the blues and dreaming of playing the electric guitar—before she was ever allowed to touch one. “There were a lot of electric guitars in my home when I was a kid, but I couldn’t really pick them up,” she says. “My dad was protective of his guitars. Two little girls wanting to play around his guitars was a no-go. Maybe that helped, that it was kind of a forbidden territory,” she adds with a laugh, “but electric guitar was, right away, my interest.” Ana Popovic will perform at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9 at Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $20/adv, $25/door. 479-1854.

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND REVEREND STEPHAN SAMS

Stephan Sams is the lead singer for local garage-rock band the Redlight District. He’s also a Reverend. You could call him Reverend Stephan Sams, if you were so inclined—in fact, that’s what he calls himself when he plays solo. But he really is a Reverend. He got his license online when Prop. 8 was getting repealed so that he could be ready to marry LGBTQ couples pro bono. “That was one of the great wonders I’m sure the internet was created for,” says Sams.

SEPTEMBER 6-12, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Sams has been playing solo a lot more lately, a product of quitting his day job at a factory, and wanting to find more ways to make money.

40

“I said to my bandmates, ‘I don’t get much respect there. If I’m going to be disrespected, I’m going to at least be disrespected doing something I love,’” says Sams. “Like a good ex-Catholic.” The decision to quit his job, he says will give him a chance to explore his creativity. In a few months, he’ll be moving to L.A. to take the next step in pursuing his dream of being a professional musician. He’s hoping people will dig his Reverend self down there. “I feel reverential when playing,” he says. “You know, I think that there’s some credence to that title, so that’s why I went to it.” AARON CARNES INFO: 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9. Blue Lagoon, 923 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $5. 423-7117.

CAFE MUSIQUE

WEDNESDAY 9/6 UKULELE

JAKE SHIMABUKURO I recently showed my six-year-old niece a video of Jake Shimabukuro playing his ukulele. I’ve also shared videos of him with my 71-year-old mom and a friend whose musical taste rests firmly in metal. Shimabukuro transcends music in a way that’s tricky to describe. He’s so damn good at his craft that things like genre and even medium fall away to reveal a creative and technical master. His latest album, Nashville Sessions, is a jazz album that pushes Shimabukuro’s skill set further still. If you have an appreciation for the little uke, you’re likely already familiar with Shimabukuro. If it isn’t something you’ve gravitated to before, but you have a taste for artistic mastery, check this guy out. CJ INFO: 8 p.m. Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $37/gen, $52/gold. 423-8209.

THURSDAY 9/7 HAWAIIAN

GEORGE KAHUMOKU Hawaiian cowboys and cowgirls are

a thing—and an interesting aspect of Hawaiian history and music. Slack key guitarist/songwriter/storyteller George Kahumoku Jr. fully embraces the paniolo/paniola culture—he raises goats and grows taro on his farm on Maui—and is one of its most beloved musical ambassadors. In 2015, the multiple Grammy-winning artist released Paniolo Slack Key: Songs of the Hawaiian Cowboy—his latest offering in a long list of outstanding albums. A regular visitor to the Santa Cruz area, Kahumoku shares the rich Hawaiian music tradition in all of its forms with audiences around the world. CJ INFO: 7:30 p.m. Don Quixote’s, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. $17/adv, $20/door. 335-2800.

FRIDAY 9/8 PSYCH-SOUL

MONOPHONICS Psychedelic soul. It sounds like the kind of music you listen to after your second or third dose of acid, when the Grateful Dead jam has finally started to bore you. But really, bands like Monophonics proudly wave this genre’s flag, because it highlights their diverse influences— everything from Pink Floyd to Funkadelic. In other words, a couple tabs of acid will go nicely with this groove-heavy,

deeply layered music. With San Francisco’s Monophonics, expect things to fall less on the Pink Floyd freakout-jam side of things, and more on the laid-back groove side. AARON CARNES INFO: 9 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $15/adv, $20/door. 479-1854.

SATURDAY 9/9 PUNK

STIFF LITTLE FINGERS There’s a scene in the 2000 indie film High Fidelity where a record store hipster, in an attempt to impress a girl, plays her a taste of Green Day, then a snippet of virtually unknown ’70s U.K. punk band Stiff Little Fingers. Indeed, Stiff Little Fingers laid the groundwork for what Green Day was doing. Back then, obscure but highly influential bands like Stiff Little Fingers were the darlings of such hipsters. Nearly two decades later, all of us have become internet savvy music historians. But that doesn’t make Stiff Little Fingers any less incredible and remarkably influential.

THE MAGPIE SALUTE Most bands would be blown away to hear that their first show sold out. While we’re sure the Magpie Salute was thankful to fans, it didn’t hurt that they were formed by Rich Robinson, Marc Ford and Sven Pipien, all members of the world-renowned Black Crowes. Joining the trio are Matt Slocum, Adrien Reju, Katrine Ottosen and Joe Magistro—all from

Robinson’s solo project—for a rock ’n’ roll experience that draws on influences from the Small Faces to Sly and the Family Stone. MW INFO: 9 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $27/adv, $30/door. 429-4135.

MONDAY 9/11 JAZZ

AVISHAI COHEN Israeli-born, New York-based trumpeter Avishai Cohen possesses a gorgeous, warm, glowing tone and uncommonly poised sense of structure. During his six-year run with the SFJAZZ Collective, he often stood out with smart, elliptically lyrical compositions, and his concept seems to have evolved in interesting directions since then. His recent album, Cross My Palm With Silver (ECM), is a striking, quietly dramatic journey featuring rising 21-year-old Israeli pianist Gadi Lehavi, veteran Israeli bassist Barak Mori, and drummer extraordinaire Marcus Gilmore (a longtime member of pianist Vijay Iyer’s trio).

This past June, a federal judge granted the Lakota people a major victory in their on-going battle with the U.S. Government over the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. However, the nearly year-long protest and months of litigation required major funding for legal representation—which local musician Steven Graves hopes to help with. This Sunday, Graves and his sixpiece band will play a benefit for the Lakota People’s Law Project and the Standing Rock Legal Defense Fund. Make sure to catch their latest single, “Stand For the People,” which is currently being considered Song of the Year for this year’s Native American Music Awards. MAT WEIR

Brynn Albanese—whose resume includes work with the Boston Symphony and the Hague Philharmonic—on violin and vocals; former pub owner Duane Inglish on accordion; Craig Nuttycombe, who toured with Jimi Hendrix and Canned Heat, on guitar and vocals; multi-genre and multi-instrument master Fred Murray on bass and vocals; and Eric Williams, who has worked with Tori Amos and Taj Mahal, on guitar, ukulele, bouzouki and vocals, the group is a musical treasure of the Central Coast and beyond.

FILM

EUROPEAN VACATION Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan in ‘The Trip to Spain.’

What a Trip SEPTEMBER 6-12, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Food, laughs, highlight ‘The Trip to Spain’

46

I

f you’ve never tagged along on the culinary adventures of comic actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, eating and joking their way through England and Italy in the first two The Trip movies, it may take a few scenes to get in the groove with this third installment, The Trip to Spain. But if you’ve already acquired a taste for the deadpan improv style and freewheeling mimicry of these guys on the road, make sure your passport is in order, and get ready to laugh. Part foodie porn, part travelogue to gorgeous locales, the series revolves around two guys named “Steve Coogan” and “Rob Brydon,” lightly fictionalized versions of the real-life actors. As they drive

around, eating at fancy restaurants, ostensibly writing a Sunday piece for The Observer, they do occasionally discuss the food placed before them. But mostly, they talk about life in all its complications, which, increasingly, as the series progresses, turns to issues of aging, family, relationships, and showbiz. But there’s nothing ponderous about the talk in these movies. Even serious subjects are handled with fizzy drollery as these two accomplished comedians ping ideas off each other, working themselves (and the audience) up to crescendos of extreme hilarity. The show began as a six-part BBC TV series that was condensed to feature-film length by director Michael Winterbottom in

BY LISA JENSEN

2011. Winterbottom has also helmed the two subsequent television series, first to Italy (2014) and now to Spain, from which the films are compiled; each movie is like a highlight reel of the TV productions. Fact and fiction form an uneasy relationship in these films. The private lives of onscreen Steve and Rob are reinvented by director Winterbottom, with actors playing the parts of the wives, girlfriends, and agents they interact with— usually via phone—on their travels. A darker introspection threads through the comedy as Steve tries to solidify his fame in the U.S. (many pointed asides are made to the movie Philomena, for which the reallife Coogan was Oscar-nominated as

co-writer and producer), while Rob’s contentment with his popularity on British TV irritates Steve. But story takes a back seat to the fun of turning these guys loose in a rental car over miles of glorious Spanish scenery as they read guidebooks, re-imagine history, attempt the Spanish language, and visit tourist destinations—from the majestic Alhambra to a roadside dinosaur park. Inspired by their surroundings, they reference vintage Monty Python routines (“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”), and compare themselves to Don Quixote and Sancho Panza: “two middle-aged men looking for adventure.” Since both actors are gifted impersonators, they take along an entire supporting cast of other Brit celebrities. Discussion of the Spanish Moors inevitably leads to Rob’s imitation of Roger Moore as James Bond (with a little Sean Connery thrown in.) Coogan does an amazing Mick Jagger, complete with hand-clapping gestures, and Rob counters with David Bowie. Other bits of inspired silliness include an a cappella duet of the bouncy instrumental “Tijuana Taxi” while driving through the mountains. Discussing King Ferdinand, who expelled the Moors in the 15th Century, Coogan calls him the “Catholitic Converter.” Waxing poetic over the vagaries of age, Coogan declares, “Time flies like a spear— but fruit flies like a banana.” And, oh yes, now and then they do actually pay attention to the food— from chorizo to mussels in carrot juice. (Spearing one pink bivalve on his fork, Rob says, “The good news is, it’s benign.”) A plate of scallops prompts a funny confrontation between James Bond and a silky villain over who can dupe the other into eating the first one. The effect of the comedy is cumulative: bits build to past their expiration date, then either fizzle out or soar into irresistible heights of absurdity. With such sharp, witty travel companions, you might as well enjoy the ride. THE TRIP TO SPAIN *** (out of four) With Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. Directed by Michael Winterbottom. An IFC Films release. Not rated. 108 minutes.

FILM NEW THIS WEEK HOME AGAIN Comedy-romance features Reese Witherspoon as a single mom whose life is turned upside down when three younger guys come to live with her. No, no, no it’s not a genderbent Brady Bunch. Written and directed by Hallie-Myers Shyer. Nat Wolff and Lake Bell costar. (PG-13) 97 minutes. IT The new adaptation of what is arguably Stephen King’s defining horror masterpiece is finally here. Which is a good thing, because if I see one more headline that says “If You Really Want to Have Nightmares, Watch This New Trailer From It” or “This New Clip From It is Sure to Give You Nightmares,” I’m gonna lose it. No, I don’t really want nightmares, thanks! And none of the clips actually did give me any, so just shut the hell up with the hype and bring on the damn clown already! Andy Muschietti directs. Bill Skarsgard, Jeremy Ray Taylor and Jaeden Lieberher star. (R) 135 minutes.

SPECIAL SCREENINGS All’Opera: Die Entfuhrung Aus Dem Serail is a revival of the Mozart opera, with the role of Konstanze sung by Lenneke Ruiten and acclaimed Mozart tenor Mauro Peter as Belmonte. Sung in German, with English subtitles. CONTINUING EVENT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES Film buffs are invited Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. to downtown Santa Cruz, where each week the group discusses a different current release. For location and discussion topic, go to https:// groups.google.com/group/LTATM.

NOW PLAYING ANNABELLE: CREATION We get it, the Annabelle doll is creepy. But, seriously, how much more can they milk from the Conjuring franchise? What’s that? A lot? Well, OK then! Have at this prequel about who the

hell would ever make a doll that looks like that. David F. Sandberg directs. Anthony LaPaglia and Stephanie Sigman star. (R) 109 minutes. ATOMIC BLONDE She’s an expert in escape and evasion— and maintaining a poker face, obviously—but for an MI6 agent, Lorraine Broughton’s English accent really is terrible. And wow, wow, she’s bi too? Putting in that lesbian spy sex scene (gee, wonder what audience that was added for) must be a sign of progress, not a cheap tactic to ramp up the sex appeal in an otherwise completely prudish film ... David Leitch directs. Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman costar. (R) 115 minutes. THE BIG SICK Kumail starts dating Emily and things are going great. Except, Kumail’s family is on a serious quest for Kumail’s future bride—a Pakistani Muslim like him, not a white American girl. With Holly Hunter and Ray Romano as Emily’s disapproving parents and the production genius of Judd Apatow, The Big Sick has been called “the most authentic romantic comedy in years.” Michael Showalter directs. Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Hunter costar. (R) 119 minutes. DUNKIRK They were so close to home, they could almost see it. More than 340,000 soldiers on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, surrounded by the German army, with little left to expect but certain death. Probably a far-too-real depiction (it’s Christopher Nolan, after all) of how the “colossal military disaster” turned around with the help of merchant marine boats, fishing boats, lifeboats and everything inbetween. Nolan directs. Fionn Whitehead, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance co-star. (PG-13) 106 minutes. THE GLASS CASTLE Woody Harrelson, having lost the war for the Planet of the Apes, retreats into the role of alcoholic father in this adaptation of Jeanette Walls’ memoir about how she overcame a brutally rough childhood to become a successful writer. Brie Larson

Plays Walls. Naomi Watts and Sarah Snook co-star. Destin Daniel Cretton directs. (PG-13) 127 minutes. GOOD TIME Damn, this movie is just one letter away from being a documentary about Santa Cruz’s favorite newspaper. So close! What it is instead is an intense crime thriller from filmmakers Josh and Ben Safdie (makers of the wild Heaven Knows What). Constantine (Robert Pattinson) is so desperate to get his younger brother out of jail after a botched bank robbery that he’s willing to do whatever it takes over the course of one violent night. Directed by Josh and Ben Safdie. (R) 100 minutes. THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD Pop quiz! Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson star in this actioncomedy as the best bodyguard in the world and the world’s most notorious hitman. Will these mortal enemies a) learn to work together to achieve a common goal; b) learn to overcome their differences to achieve a common goal; or c) turn into Nick Fury and Deadpool, and then learn to overcome their differences to achieve a common goal? Patrick Hughes directs. (R) 118 minutes.

LEAP! This animated musical adventure film is about an 11-year-old orphan who dreams of being a ballerina, and, against all odds, gets a chance to audition for the Paris Opera Ballet. It features the voice of Carly Rae Jepsen as a mysterious caretaker who helps her. Hey, you just read about this movie, and this is crazy. But your kid will like it, so see it maybe? Eric Summer and Eric Warren direct. Also featuring the voices of Elle Fanning, Kate McKinnon and Mel Brooks. (PG) 89 minutes. LOGAN LUCKY If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “You know what this heist movie needs? NASCAR!,” then this new Steven Soderbergh film is for you. Coming out of a self-imposed “retirement” that lasted four years—which actually is kind of a lifetime for him, since he used to put out like seven movies a year—his latest action-comedy has a fair amount of critical buzz, not to mention Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig. Soderbergh directs. (PG-13) 119 minutes.

I DO … UNTIL I DON’T Writerdirector Lake Bell’s debut film In a World … was one of those movies that left you feeling like, “OK, that was good, but her next movie is going to be even better.” This follow-up comedy—about three couples who agree to star in a documentary by a manipulative filmmaker who wants to radically reboot the idea of marriage— looks like it will be. Bell directs. Bell, Ed Helms, Paul Reiser, Mary Steenburgen, and Dolly Wells star. (R) 103 minutes.

MENASHE This story of a father trying to keep custody of his son after his wife’s death in a strict New York Hasidic community (where a mother is required to be present in the home) is a fascinating proposition for a number of reasons: not only is it based on real life story of its Hasidic star, Menashe Lustig, but it was secretly filmed within Borough Park, the Orthodox Brooklyn neighborhood in which it’s set. It’s also one of the first films (if not the first) to be shot in Yiddish in almost 70 years. Joshua Z. Weinstein directs. Ruben Nidorski and Meyer Schwartz co-star. (PG) 81 minutes.

INGRID GOES WEST Dark comedy about a social media stalker (Aubrey Plaza) who’s just like us! She confuses likes with approval, gets too wrapped up in other people’s posts … oh, and moves to L.A. to insert herself into the life of her celebrity obsession. NBD! Matt Spicer directs. Elizabeth Olsen costars. (R) 97 minutes.

PATTI CAKE$ This quirky character study, featuring Danielle Macdonald as gonna-make-itagainst-all-odds rapper Patricia "Dumbo" Dombrowski (aka Killa P, aka Patti Cake$), was a sensation at Sundance. Geremy Jasper directs. Bridget Everett and Siddharth Dhananjay co-star. (R) 108 minutes.

SPIDERMAN: HOMECOMING Stark made him the suite, so now he’s got to live up to the legacy. But after stopping bike thieves and helping grandmas out around the neighborhoods, little Spider Man might’ve gotten himself into a situation that might prove too big for his britches. Jon Watts directs. Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr. co-star. (PG-13) 133 minutes. TULIP FEVER There really was a thing called “tulip mania” in the Netherlands in the 17th century, when the newly introduced tulip fetched prices so ridiculously high that it created the first “bubble” market. That’s the backdrop of this film, which has an artist falling in love with a married woman whose portrait he’s been hired to paint. When he and the woman plot how to create a life together, they end up risking it all in the tulip market. If the tulip bubble was anything like the housing bubble, I’m sure their plan works out great! Justin Chadwick directs. Alicia Vickander, Dane DeHaan, Zach Galifianakis, Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz star. (R) 107 minutes. UNLOCKED Remember when director Michael Apted used to make sweet movies, like the one where Jodie Foster played the weird Nell girl, or how he would do the documentaries about the same kids every seven years of their life? No? Well, he doesn’t either, apparently. They gave the guy one James Bond movie to direct, and since then it’s one action thriller after another. This one features an all-star cast led by Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom, in the story of a CIA interrogator who has to stop a biological attack on London. Possibly by unlocking something. Hard to tell. Apted directs. Michael Douglas, John Malkovich and Toni Collette co-star. (R) 98 minutes. WIND RIVER Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen star in this intense tale of a murder investigation on a Wyoming reservation. Directed by Taylor Sheridan. Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille and James Jordan co-star. (R) 107 minutes.

That’s a Wrap

FRUIT OF THE WEEK

Cookbook author and culinary teacher Beth Love thinks outside the pita BY CHRISTINA WATERS

W

e’ve all been eating with our hands since we were toddlers. And many of us still love to do it, hence the popularity of the wrap and all of its siblings. Innovative culinary teacher and cookbook author Beth Love thinks outside the pita when she dreams up her unexpected recipes and designs for wrapped foods, homemade crackers and unexpected dipping strategies. “When people reach for some type of wrapper or cracker,” says Love, “they often choose foods made with unhealthy ingredients such as refined

flour, saturated fats, sugar, high levels of salt, and chemical additives.” So she aims for the new and different in the next of her handson vegan workshops: “Crackers, Wrappers, and Dippers: Raw Vegan Coolinary.” “I teach people how to make delightfully tasty plant-based creations out of fiber-rich, healthy ingredients such as carrots, dark leafy greens, flax and sunflower seeds, and lemons.” Love says she aims to stimulate new ideas and variations on familiar spreads, flavors, and wrap techniques through her workshop,

After having enjoyed so many fine meals at O’Mei restaurant over the years, I find it sad indeed to see its doors close as a consequence of the unapologetic support of a white supremacist on the part of its owner Roger Grigsby. It is impossible for me, or anyone, to condone Grigsby’s racist actions. That Grigsby is a skilled and highly educated restaurateur makes this situation ironic.

and while she’s at it she hopes to inspire her participants to choose tasty but good-for-us items, rather than the all-too-easy carb and fatlaced alternatives. For example, she’ll be teaching participants how to make raw seed and veggie crackers, as well as use various tart and tangy leaf wrappers to fill with goodies. “One of the major motivations for my class topics is my intent to make healthy, plant-based food accessible to as many people as possible,” Love explains. “So a number of my classes offer alternatives to some of the unhealthiest foods people eat.” She

The Italians call them pomodori, but I call them late-harvest, dry-farmed tomatoes and right now, this very minute, is their zenith. Whether you like to cruise the farmers markets for the freshest seasonal produce, check out the UCSC Farm and Garden Cart, or the irresistible displays at your favorite grocery, this is the time to sink your teeth into the ripest, most sweet and succulent tomatoes you’ll get all year. Feast!

EVENT OF THE WEEK Yes, we love the salsa-intensive Mole & Mariachi Festival coming to the Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park once again from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 9. You know what to expect—lots of different mole sauces to vote for and taste, plus beer, wine, food, piñatas, music, dancing and a mega-raffle. Free admission. Bring your appetite!

hen I first heard that a group called the Santa Cruz Heritage Food Project was researching stories about the food history of Santa Cruz County, I was instantly excited—and jealous. Excited because learning about the agricultural products that have shaped this community sounded absolutely fascinating to me, and jealous because, as a history major, I wish I could have been there, slowly uncovering the recipes and stories of the past. The journey to uncover the ag history of the area started when Live Oak native Sierra Ryan discovered her great-grandmother’s recipe book, which dated back to when she and her husband moved to Santa Cruz in 1911. Four years of dusty archives and glowing microfilm later, Ryan and fellow amateur historians Liz Birnbaum, Jody Biergiel Colclough and Katie Hansen—who playfully refer to their collective as “the Heritagistas”— are releasing their findings in Harvesting Our Heritage: Bite-Sized Stories from Santa Cruz County History through the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. Underneath the beautifully

designed cover, reminiscent of a vintage almanac, lies chapters on wine, wheat, potatoes, beer, dairy, sugar beets, apples, artichokes, berries, poultry, Pismo clams and dryfarmed tomatoes—all of which left a distinct mark on Santa Cruz County. At the end of each chapter are local recipes from when each crop was in its heyday. Ryan hopes that the Heritage Food Project will connect people living and eating in Santa Cruz County today with the history of the region, and inspire an appreciation for the events that took place to make Santa Cruz the foodie hub we know today. “We think it’s important because it brings the reader a fresh new understanding of the place they care about, the foods [previous residents] loved, and the relationship between the two,” says Ryan. “We hope people experience a few ‘aha’ moments as they read about their neighborhood, or their favorite local produce.” Available at the MAH, Bookshop Santa Cruz, and local museums.

PIZZERIA LA BUFALA

A recent event at the Museum of Art and History showcased the newly opened Abbott Square, where I shared a La Bufala pizza with a couple of friends at Pizzeria La Bufala. And what a fantastic pizza!—one of the best I’ve had in some time. I put it all down to the dough, which is made from a blend of Italian and American flours and achieves just the right texture. Toppings are fresh and delicious, with many of them coming from local farms such as Route 1 and Happy Boy. Owner Sandro Costanza, who comes from the Calabria region of Italy, has perfected the craft of pizza making— and it shows.

ummer is winding down, and it’s time to appreciate the last of the summer wines, so to speak. This pretty, pale pink Vin Gris Estate 2016 ($22) is all you could ever need for a picnic on a warm day, with its subtle aromas and flavors of tearose, sage, watermelon, strawberry and cranberry. Produced by Sarah’s Vineyard proprietor and winemaker Tim Slater, who calls himself a “mad scientist,” it’s made by using traditional techniques to craft handmade wines. “Vin Gris is the traditional name for a Rosé of Pinot Noir,” says Slater. “This estate-grown-and-bottled wine is bone-dry with crisp acidity for hotsummer sipping.” Particularly elegant and well structured, this lovely dry wine immediately reveals its nuances of flavor and fruit-forward mouthfeel. It says on Sarah’s website that this Vin Gris (pronounced “vahn gree”) is a “tasting room exclusive,” along with other varietals such as Charbono (which I love), Barbera and Gewurztraminer. So, your best bet is to head to Sarah’s for a tasting. Slater makes top-notch wines and his Chardonnay is one of my all-time favorites.

H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES GIVING—TO MAKE SACRED, HOLY AND ORDERLY AGAIN Wednesday, just after midnight (West Coast time) is the full moon (timing mechanism). It is also the Virgo solar (sun) festival (14 degrees). Virgo’s festival arrives just after Mercury turned direct at the Leo eclipse point. Reminding us that eclipses bring vast changes. And so, right after the eclipse (dividing the U.S., reflecting our polarized ideologies), the hurricane swept into Texas, producing massive flooding, changing the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. In times of crisis such as these, humanity is called to serve, to give and to sacrifice. Humanity is called to action, becoming part of the New Group of World Servers (NGWS), working under the Law of Sacrifice, which is

the Law of Giving and Group Endeavor. The flooding has given women and men of Goodwill an opportunity to serve, which is the task of Virgo—and to restore order through acts of selfless service. The Law of Sacrifice means to “make sacred, holy and orderly again.” All of us are asked to give. The after-effects of the flooding crisis in our country will continue for weeks, months and years. Thousands have lost everything. There will be a great longlasting sense of trauma by the flood victims. The towns and cities will need to be rebuilt. Let us continue to give, and then give some more. Here are ways to give. Giving produces Joy. Visit: consumerreports.org/charitable-donations/ best-ways-to-help-victims-of-hurricane-harvey/.

ARIES Mar21–Apr20

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22

You will be asked to share possessions and resources, to drop your personal sense of security for a greater spiritual security. You might attempt to accomplish tasks alone and in solitude. However, you will need to join with others now to face the transformations and reorientations that have begun to change our planet. You can no longer dismiss others’ values. You will move from instinct to intelligence to intuition to sharing.

You understand yourself, your worth and values through the eyes of your close intimates. Your daily life may feel somewhat confused, there may be wounding that occurs, along with a sense of things important to you dissolving away. You are in a state of “isolated unity.” With the difficulties, you discover your own values, gifts and talents and establish a greater self-worth. Prayer takes you through any crisis. Someone far-away loves you.

TAURUS Apr21–May21

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

Relying solely on yourself creates a state of alienation and possible loneliness. It is important to become more sensitive and aware of others’ needs in your life, especially those close to you. You often don’t understand what your partner is trying to communicate. You want to “get things done.” You have a vision for the future. Are all the kingdoms considered? You focus on physical survival. But there are other voices, other needs and planes of reality to consider.

It will be important to trust your instincts, to stand on the other side of fear, to stand alone, be decisive, asserting yourself while not being overly concerned with whether people think you’re good or not. Peace is a wholesome response which brings forth healing. How do we achieve peace? We have intentions for Goodwill (always) which creates Right Relations which creates the experience and process of active peace. This is the only equation for peace.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

Beware of not tending to practical details, becoming confused, disorganized and avoiding making goals, plans and agendas. It’s important in the next 18 months to create reasonable plans and routines, scheduling in the morning and reviewing the day at night, creating daily goals, seeing them through. Without this (new) order, you may feel out of control and lacking in clear vision. The Soul is orderly.

Sometimes we have a dark night of the Soul. Isolation is significant. We feel separate from life. We cry out in the wilderness. No one answers (at first). There comes a day that upon awakening we sense the loss and despair are lessened. We hear the words “Love is all there is.” We wonder where the path of Love is? We realize we’ve been treading it all along. At first, we were asleep. Then, through pain, we awakened. Then love came in a flash. Then it disappeared. We are still on the path.

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20

A deep welling up of creativity appears and at times you are the center of attention by those who recognize your intelligence, talents and gifts. They will want to learn from you. You will need to cease worrying if things are good enough. You are always good enough. Come out from under your shell, enter the garden without fear and apprehension. Attempt contact with the devas (garden fairies). You will feel less alienated. The devas will become your friends.

There is a new way of meditation. We must no longer “empty” our minds. We are to “use” the faculty of our minds in order to design, fashion and build, with boldness, the new world. We cannot create with an empty mind. We create through our imagination, the faculty of visualization. Our minds are to be an intensified light of constant imaginative creation. Visualize a future for yourself as part of a community for humanity. Do this daily. See what happens.

LE0 Jul21–Aug22 Realizing you are dependent upon those you love can make you pull back and remain within yourself building your own “interior castles.” You often fear losing individuality when you love. You live a bit within the heresy of separateness. Yes, there’s the need to develop your own self-ness, leadership and ability to rule. However, for life to have meaning, love is all there is for you. You can love deeply without dissolving.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 So often you feel the need to take responsibility. This can sometimes, without adaptation which creates fluidity, move into a state of rigidity and then fear of not being recognized adequately. Having a standard of perfection and achievement is important. Beware of becoming too intense, too in control, too fearful of obscurity. Everyone sees you. You are acceptable and good. The unveiling is continuous.

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18 It’s good to say mantras (holy words) each day. Their sound holds the resonation (vibration) that creates the future. We must realize the implication inherent in the words, “Humanity must create the new future.” Toning, sounding ohms, and reciting ancient mantras helps uplift and purify the present world around us. Out of that purity, and sound, which created the world, the future begins to appear. Doing this creative work comforts us.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 You want to live in community. You may need to seek out unusual places yet unknown to you. There is something profound occurring with you and groups of people. At times, you feel a deep loneliness. Remember Matthew 21: 22. “Pray and you will receive what you pray for.” Read the story of Mary Gray (Theosophist) meeting Krishnamurti at the train station. Mary took Krishnamurti to Pine Cottage (Ojai) where he lived, studied, taught and grew in light, from 1922 till his death in 1986.

Occupation: Founder/owner/manicurist, Lavish Salon Hobbies: Swimming, biking, cooking, hanging out with my husband/watching him cook, walking West Cliff Drive Astrological Sign: Virgo What first got you you shopping here? I like to buy food fresh the day we cook it, and Shopper’s is basically next door to Lavish Salon. So pretty much the money I make at the salon, I spend here at Shopper’s. I shop here 4 to 5 days a week, and my commute is about 30 seconds walking! I follow a particular plan where I first shop the perimeter of the store then the inside. The meat department is my favorite section. I find everyone to be super friendly and helpful. I joke with the girls at the check stands all the time about lots of different things. It’s really fun. I feel well taken care of, from the checkers to the butchers who love me, as they’re always helpful and charming.

Is it your preference to shop local? Yes. And that’s new for me. I used to shop Amazon a lot. Now I want to support local businesses. Whether it’s the Sock Shop, the Flower Shack, Shopper’s Corner, or Lavish, I want them to thrive. We need our local businesses. I think on-site ownership makes a big difference. Shopper’s greatness is due to Jim’s (Beauregard) on-going and in-person influence and contributions. Everybody knows this store and loves it. Everything is quality and not expensive. People who think Shopper’s is expensive — maybe because of its size and highquality reputation — must not shop here.

So what do you like to cook? Anything and everything with chicken, especially Mediterranean dishes containing olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta. I make a mean chicken rollatini stuffed with prosciutto. Shopper’s has a terrific variety of organic produce, and there’s always someone rotating in the newest selections. They have fabulous wines at different price points and offer case discounts. They carry Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and also local favorites Marianne’s and Polar Bear. Something for everyone. Jim and I support one another. I’ve sent dozens of women here shopping in their paper flip-flops after their pedicures. It’s my favorite place to drop $100!
